Studio review @ Island Colony in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5
The studio is located in the center of waikiki with easy access to the great Hawaii bus system. The unit is well stocked with everything basic that you would need. Mini store on property is fine for emergency items but a Food Pantry store is located two blocks away. Owner was very accomidating on arrangements of arrival and departure. We were in Hawaii before our scheduled time to check in and the owner made arrangements for us to put our luggage on the lanai with a key for access to come back at the correct time (3:00) for check-in and did the same on our departure date since our flight was late afternoon.

Something Less than Wonderful

  • 2 of 5
OK Location - Close to International Market and beach.

Advertised as "new mattress"; not untrue, but misleading (no box springs) Very uncomfortable! When condo manager was informed of missing box springs, she replied that none of "her" properties have box springs. This may be true, but hard to believe.

A/C did not work very well (didn't cool the condo)

Owner's Response: Aloha! I'm glad to provide more info about my beautiful condo for future guests.

The bed is a Japanese-style mocha bed frame, meaning it is built to have no need for a box spring. These are fairly common in Hawaii (it being quite popular with Japanese visitors) and most people find them to be EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE -- of the 100 guests who have stayed with me, most have commented on how wonderfully they sleep here. I myself stay in this condo, and the bed is one of the main reasons I look forward to coming to Hawaii...I wish my bed at home was this comfy.

My property caretaker and I make it a point to respond immediately to any concerns or queries from guests. And certainly I depend on guests to let me know if there's something we can do to make their stay more comfortable. Unfortunately, this guest did NOT inform either of us about the AC during their week-long stay: this is the first time we're hearing of any such problem, and I'm dismayed this guest chose to inform me in this manner instead of allowing me to take care of it during their stay. That being said, I will be taking care of the AC shortly. Meanwhile, all my guests before and since have not expressed any concern over the AC. In fact, the condo faces the windward side of the island, which means the AC is usually unnecessary because you're cooled by the natural island breezes! Doesn't get much better than that :)

Mahalo for visiting my site and for reading my response. I look forward to welcoming you to your temporary island home with the aloha spirit for which we're known! Cheers, Fiona

Nice Cozy Spot In Waikiki - Good Communication

  • 5 of 5
Hello Fiona,

The Apartment was nice, i will recommend it to my friends if they need a place to stay in Waikiki.
Central But not right on the top of the clubs/bars or roads where it can be very noisy.
On the good side of the island colony building (sun in the morning) plus partial view of golf / ocean / diamond head.

Hard wood floors, that's very good, keep it.

Most of the appliances/cookware utensils are there, actually everything.

I was at the Hilton Hawaiian Village the last Friday of my stay to visit a friend. I was very pleased not to have stayed at the HHV, standard motel size room, (lanai? in fact just a small balcony overlooking ... the Hilton parking lot). The price of my friend's room was 3 times the price i paid for Fiona's Island Colony Studio.
