Happy Holidays!

What a perfect location -loved being steps away from the beach, and the zoo, and the aquarium! I'm still speechless over the view. We had everything we needed - thank you for the beach gear.

Thank you to Charles for being so welcoming What a great way to spend the holidays.

The view may be the best in Waikiki

  • 4 of 5
We have stayed at many hotels in Waikiki, this is the first time we rented a condo and we will definitely do so again. We arrived late and Charles had contacted us, given instructions about keys etc and turned the bedside lamp on. There was a welcome note and cookies left for us. We were aware the Waikiki Grand was an older building but it seemed to be well cared for. Exterior painting was underway during our visit but was not bothersome in any way.

The unit was just big enough for two with an efficient kitchen. All the kitchen equipment you could need was supplied. We had a problem with the toaster and Charles replaced it very quickly. It was actually very nice to make breakfast and drink our Kona coffee each day without having to get dressed and go out. The experience of opening the (blackout) drapes to the spectacular views of beach, zoo and Diamond Head was indescribable. We often went to the beach for a few hours and then returned to make lunch, saving money to use for some really lovely dinners.

Quite a lot of equipment was provided including beach towels and boogie boards etc. however there were a few small practicalities that could be improved. We found the half size broom made it back breaking to keep the floors clear of sand as requested. Originally only three towels were provided for our ten day stay. Charles did bring a fourth when asked - he was very pleasant and accommodating. There were no tea towels or dish cloths. The bedding was somewhat uncomfortable for this 50+ couple - the pillows were hard and flat and the cover was meant for a smaller bed. The mattress was hard but I realize that is a matter of personal preference. For the very reasonable rental rate we didn't find these little things too bothersome. There was a good amount of storage space including a closet that would accommodate the empty suitcases. Many hangers were provided - a rarity!

The original art on the walls was an unexpected delight. We were able to watch the lunar eclipse sitting on the lanai.

Our stay

Just came back from the Apt. Back in cold Canada. The view from our 9th floor was I would say the best I have seen in my lifetime.
Sunset over the ocean every night while eating our supper on the large lanai. Full view of beach, palm trees, Diamond head, Kapiolani green park with awesome green trees.
it was clean, quiet and perfect for 2 persons.Tennis , walking distance, my second love after my husband ! Jogging track for my husband. Starbucks downstairs and tons of great restaurants and shops walking distance.
The apt. was clean and Charles! the helper on location, was great and treated us like family. Gave us cookies upon arrival.
For sure, saving money to be back there.
our contact Hiroko, was always very punctual to answer all our questions upon our booking the apt.
Happy Canadians, Louise & Ron.

Great location not so great condo

  • 3 of 5
We booked this condo as we loved the fact that it was so close to the beach and the views from the lanai looked great.Upon arrival we found that there was building work taking place on the front of the building that we hadnt been informed about,and that you were asked not to use the lanai or leave anything outside.
Hiroko had asked that we keep the condo clean as you would your own property,however we spent most days sweeping up dust and rubble from the work done outside.We emailed Hiroko and was was told that they might move us to a room at the back of the building with no view.But we refused as we didn't travel all the way from the UK to look onto the back.No refund was asked for or offered as we didnt want it to spoil our holiday.
Other than that the condo needed more kitchen utensils and crockery that matched!

Owner's Response: I got the notice from my Condo Association that construction on the exterior of the building would be finished by April 12 before my customers would arrived but there was a delay. I tried to get another room but a room with a good view was not available. I asked the customers if there were any problems to please contact my condo management. They didn't contact him or me. I didn't know till this review that they had to sweep at all. I did do my best but I could not control this matter. The construction is now over and this will not be an issue again.

We Will go Back, Zoo is just across the street. Southern end of Waikiki close to everything. Views really good.We liked the room and for the price its really hard to beat.Owner is very responsive to emails and we had no problems checking in or out.Early morning absolutely magical from Lanai as you wait for sun to come up over Diamond Head.
You do not have to leave your room to enjoy sunset either. Open air bar on second floor and pool in back.
We wish we could have stayed forever.
I would recommend this place for anyone that is looking for the right combination of location views and most importantly Low cost.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
I like the location at the end of the strip on Waikiki. The view of Diamond Head and the ocean, instead of other hotels, is a big plus. It can make for some long walks, but nothing to crazy, and there is always the cab option. The only cons were that the air conditioner was leaking pretty bad, so if we didn't change out the bowl that caught it regularly a big puddle would form on the balcony. Also meant we couldn't leave it on while we were out, so it would be very hot when we got back in. The place is very small, but you're in Waikiki, get out and about! Two people max, and the fan in the bathroom doesn't work, so beware on those mornings after drinking too much ;) The owner was easy to get a hold of, and returned my security deposit promptly after our stay. I would say it is a good value for the money.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I am so happy you enjoyed your stay. In regards to the air conditioner though, it only leaks on the hottest days. You happened to stay on very humid days. There had not been an issue for months. I am sorry for the inconvenience but almost no other tenants will have this issue.
