Waikiki Lanais 2, 1 1/2 Bath Condo
- english, Japanese
Why Sue S chose Waikiki
We have added special touches to make it stand out from the rest. It is totally renovated, and features a full kitchen with solid surface quartz counters, and we even supply a rice cooker, along with boogie boards, quality beach chairs, beach towels and a quality parasol.
What makes this Condo unique
This condo has great amenities and is a visitor friendly condo offering an alternative to small hotel rooms with little else to offer. The location is ideal, just minutes away from the center of Waikiki and the prime area of Waikiki beach.

The location was great and it included parking. But we won't return. Don't be fooled by the photos.
We were disappointed that we found out that short term rentals are not allowed in this building and that we were expected to lie if asked by other owners. It put us in an uncomfortable position.
Additionally, the furnishings are minimal and cheap quality. The living area is incredibly small, there isn't a dresser in the master bedroom so you're living out of your suitcase (which gets old for 9 days), the furniture is uncomfortable, ie. Beds, horrible pillows and couch, There are 4 towels, 4 washcloths and three hand towels... frequent trips to the l laundry room. The kitchen is bare bones... nothing to use to cook inside of the oven. Nothing! Only stove top pots.
Sorry, but I can't recommend this place
Shellie, So sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. The condo is just as pictured, of course nothing is embellished. Wish you would have let us know right away if you had any needs (as we mention in our property info), so that we can make your stay comfortable.
The housekeeper is supposed to provide bath towels for each person, plus two extra of each as well. This occurrence has been relayed to him.
The condo is furnished with high-end Natuzzi sleeper sofa and CB2 seating. We will add a dresser for the master bedroom. The beds are Sealy Posturepedic grade, we will inspect these as well.
The kitchen is stocked with all the cookware usually needed, but we will certainly check and add baking pans as necessary for future guests.
Thank you for your input, it is appreciated.
Great location Jim and his team very professional and responsive
Clean neat apartment, has all the essentials. Watch our for wind on the balcony.
We had a lovely stay recently in Hawaii, There was 7 of us staying and we did not at all feel to crowded. Easy location to find and ideal with parking included. A quick walk to the beach and nearby ABC stores. Had all the things we needed for our stay. Great communication with Yas, Always prompt to answer any questions.
I would highly recommend this apartment.
Alana, Thanks much for your review. So glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay!
I was a convenient location condo.
We had a great time while staying at the condo, Jim was always available and helpful. I wish there was family games to play at night and more sitting space for a family to sit around in the living room, we were a family of 6 and it was tight, the apartment could use decor, kitchen had the bare minimum pots and pans no storage containers for leftover food or such. I would stay again for the location, safe the BBQ area was awesome, pool area great as well. I would recommend this unit. Just be advised of no games, tight space for a family of 6 to gather around at night.
Thanks Jim for all your help.
perfect vacation stay
With Jim and Yas's directions on how to get to and in to the property, it was easy and stress free. It may look a little smaller in person than in the pictures but it was honestly perfect and just what we needed for our 7 day stay. The unit was very clean and very homey :) My family especially loooved the balcony space. And we were thankful for all the beach gear (towels, mats, chairs, umbrella, goggles, bag, etc.) and towel/clothes rack on the balcony that were provided especially since it only took less than 10 minutes to walk to the beach! Although the weather during our vacation wasn't too too hot (mostly in the mid-high 80s), all the AC units worked perfectly when we used it. And we weren't able to utilize the rooftop bbq grill but we did take a peek up there and saw others enjoying it. Some of my family visited the pool and jacuzzi on the 6th floor one evening and it was kind of fun looking down off the balcony of the unit and being able to see them enjoying their time.
The area around Waikiki Lanais (like the streets driving and walking to and from) don't look the greatest, BUT not once did we ever feel that we weren't safe around or inside the unit. It also helped that the key fob is needed to access the building as well as to use the elevator. When I contacted the owners regarding the sliding doors to the balcony, they also quickly reassured me that we had nothing to worry about due to the security of the building and the unit being so high up in floors that access wouldn't be possible. Just be sure to push the door all the way closed when coming in and out because there was a couple times when we shut and locked the door, the wind pushed it open.
Overall, it was the perfect vacation stay and the unit was an excellent home-base to recharge and refuel overnight for the long days we had around the island. I would highly recommend!
