traveler reviews for this waikiki studio rental

Location, location, location

Review submitted: June 10, 2013   Date of arrival: May 30, 2013

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.

Owners response: Glad you and your girfriend had fun in Waikiki. We look forward to your next stay with us.
Enjoy your summer!

Great Condo!

Review submitted: November 9, 2012   Date of arrival: October 31, 2012

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!!

Review submitted: November 5, 2012   Date of arrival: October 24, 2012

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!!!!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners 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...
