About the Owner

We both lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 30+ years. We purchased our condo in 2008 as an investment and a place to stay when we came to visit our young grandson. We enjoyed it so much we moved here in 2013, however it is not large enough for year around living so we rent it out as a vacation rental and now live just a few miles away in a small two bedroom house.

Fantastic Stay in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5
A definite 5-Star experience!

I stayed at Brad and Lorie's trendy studio in Waikiki for almost two months. It was a great experience from beginning to end. I had never booked through HomeAway before so I was a little worried. I needed a very fast internet connection for work and I knew that is a request that most places would not necessarily accept.

Brad and Lorie were so kind and helpful all the way through that I felt fortunate to have found their place. I knew that if anything else came up that they were only a phone call away. That made me feel great. It turns out that there was nothing else that came up. The place is just as advertised. I liked the decor a lot and the view/open feel was great too.

Thanks Brad and Lorie. Five stars!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Condo for 5 nights and we really had a great time. The condo is next to the beach, and close to all the restaurants and boutiques. It was confortable, modern and clean. We had all we needed. The kitchen is fully equiped, and we even had 2 bodyboards, 2 sunchairs and an umberella. We went to Hanauma Bay and Diamond Head by bus, and the bus stations are really close to the condo.

We really enjoyed our stay!

Had an unbelievable time!!

  • 5 of 5
This place was great, it was literally a half a block from Waikiki's beautiful beach and across the street from the Waikiki Zoo. The 10th floor sun deck had an amazing view of the Diamond head, Zoo, And beach. The Place itself was very clean and had more than enough room comfortably for 2 people. It had everything you needed to cook and clean for yourself. The bed was very comfortable, we slept like babies every night. Me and my girlfriend had the time of our lives in Waikiki. The locals were friendly, local food as unreal, and the beach was beautiful. Shopping was like no other and sight seeing around the island was a must. Lorie was super helpful and very flexible to our needs, she provided all the information we needed including extra information from sight seeing to moped rentals. Kristy and I would like to thank you Lorie for being so great and providing us with a beautiful place to stay on the best vacation ever. If your looking to be close to the beach with a great view, choose this place, it wont let you down I promise you that!

Mahalo,

Brian

People say it is all about location, location, location. This condo was perfect for our visit, my returning to the island and my girlfriends first visit. The first thing she noticed was that we were right next to the beach. Easy walking distance to a number of places for you to check out. We had a a very nice vacation, it was quiet, cozy and very comfortable. We have already started our planning for a return visit.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5
This condo had it all! Great location (1/2 block from the beach). The room had all the extras we needed (beach gear, kitchenette, etc.). Lorie was great and was very quick to respond to all of my calls and emails. The only issue we had was that the internet was spacey. Other than that, it was fabulous! The room is perfect for a couple that want to enjoy all of Hawaii. We rented a car and parked at the Waikiki Banyon parking garage (3 blocks away) for $12/night. That gave us the freedom to go wherever we wanted whenever we wanted, but the bus would have been an easy option. It's a little small for anything over two people, but for couples it is perfect! We'd definitely recommend this condo to everyone and would gladly return ourselves!

Perfect Location, Great Condo!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to Oahu. It was the perfect condo and location and very clean. It's perfect size for a couple. It is right next to the beach which we loved, and there are boogy boards and chairs inside the condo which we brought every day. We also loved to go to the 10th floor and eat breakfast and relax in the sun in the beach chairs. The buses are right outside the door which we took the Diamond Head for a beautiful hike. The snorkeling was awesome at Hanauma Bay. We also loved Germaine's Luau. We ate at Lulu's sports bar right next door, fun crowd and night life there too. I highly recommend this condo and cannot wait to go back many times. Thanks Lorie and Brad!!!!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Isn't the view of Diamond Head from the 10th floor amazing? Even more amazing is the view from the top of Diamond Head overlooking the ocean and Waikiki Beach. I just love the picture perfect view from the top.

Come and visit Waikiki again for more exciting adventures...

Location

From the Owner

This property is great because it is so close to the beach and sits on the boundary between the natural and urban environments. Kapahulu Avenue is the dividing line between the urban Waikiki Beach strip to the west and the natural Kapiolani Park and Diamond Head area to the east. Our condo is a great place to get the best of both worlds.
