Wonderful location and lanai

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic three days in this condo, which is well equipped and in a perfect location. The highlight of the condo, though, is the lanai. Every morning, we woke early and watched the sunlight slowly build and reflect on the surrounding buildings and Diamond Head until it poured out over the waves and water. Every evening, we sat and watched the lights of Waikiki while planning our adventures for the next day. The trade winds blew comfortably across us, making even the hotter portions of the afternoon bearable when we were there. The furniture on the lanai was comfortable, and we appreciated the "bar height" stools and table, which let you see over the railing and clearly to the beach and ocean.

You will be three blocks from the Duke statue and Banyan tree, four blocks from the Outrigger and International Market, two blocks from an ABC Store--though you're never further than that from one in Waikiki--and one block from the Ala Wai canal and walking path. If you happen to need it like we did, you're also less than half a mile from Island Urgent Care and less than a mile from Safeway, which has a pharmacy, and Leonard's Bakery, which will cure what medicine can't. The zoo and Kapiolani Park and beach are also close by if you need a break from Waikiki. The snorkeling at Kapiolani was better than expected.

The apartment itself was clean and well appointed with coffee maker, toaster, full size refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher. The dishes and silverware are better quality than in some places we've stayed, and the furniture is comfortable and TV acceptable--even for trying to watch the Cubs in the World Series. Beds were comfortable "memory foam" type mattresses, and the windows all open to let the beautiful trade winds blow through. The AC seemed to work, but we never really used it because the breezes were enough to keep us comfortable.

The apartment is full of light during the day and is generally light and airy. It's not the most luxurious building, but the convenience, price, and location more than make up for the lack of amenities.

The hosts were very responsive to email enquiries, and the instructions for arrival and departure were clear and accurate. They also sent a little "locals" guide to eateries and sites, which we appreciated.

Thank you for a great stay!

Overall we where happy with the property

  • 4 of 5

On arrival we found the door closed but unlocked. Luckily it's in a secure building. Upon entering it was lovely and inviting and it was nice to have an ocean view. The kitchen was well equipped but could do with a couple of plastic containers to store food in the fridge if needed eg. Chopped up fruit, other than that, it was great.

The tv was a bit difficult to work out but was quickly sorted with a phone call. Wi-fi was included and worked well for us as we mostly used it for emails and facebook access.

The master bedroom was generous and had a walk in robe with plenty of storage. The bed however was a bit small (double?) but the mattress was very comfy.

The second bedroom had two singles beds. Both comfy but a bit squeaky.

The air conditioners in both bedrooms did not work. Fans were provided but the one in the second bedroom was too noisy to leave on. The family room air conditioner did work well. The apartment does get a great breeze but at night time it is too noisy to leave the window vents open as we found the Waikiki/Apartment area to be quite noisy, a lot of sirens and ambulances seem to be active when it gets dark.

The surrounding area is a bit suspect but we never encountered any issues.

It was approx. 5 mins walk to the Waikiki beach which was brilliant. Best option is to turn left as you walk out the main entrance and walk through the garden on the stepping stones. This way you avoid the back streets and get straight onto a Main Street. Overall, it was a lovely apartment.

Lovely stay at the Waikiki Lanais

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed for a week at the Waikiki Lanais and had a lovely time. The condo is big enough for a family of 4 to fit in comfortably. It is a nice walk down to the beach...once we figured out our way. It wasn't very far although, dragging beach chairs and stuff for a family, on the walk, was a little cumbersome...wish we had been a tad closer.

There is plenty to do within 10 mins of the place. Shopping, restaurants and a little further, the beach. The pool wasn't available during our stay, or the workout room, which is why I knocked it down a star. It would have been really nice to have been able to use the pool and jacuzzi...we knew ahead of time, but it was still a disappointment.

Some reviews here mentioned the air conditioners being loud -- they were, but it didn't bother our family at all. The Rooftop deck was lovely, as well. We didn't take advantage of the bbq's up there, but plenty did when we went up to look and wish we had.

As we were told, there is a small market within walking distance but it was SO pricey! Once we discovered ABC, we bought everything we needed, there. Should have gone to Safeway, a short drive from the condo, for even better prices.

We enjoyed the beach chairs and boogie boards that you have in the condo -- great touch to have those there for our use. The umbrellas that were there as well are broken and need to be replaced...I would also suggest a few more beach towels.

There are great laundry facilities which we did take advantage of. Only - would recommend you buy soap at the ABC Store as the machine ate our money and no soap came out...and there isn't really a manager for the bldg on the premises regularly to ask for a refund.

All in all, a really lovely week at your condo. No serious issues to speak of...a few ants, but as long as you keep the food off of the counters and use a little Raid spray, which we found under the sink, it was not an issue at all. Thank you for having a great property!

Nice location but ...

  • 3 of 5

We initially booked this condo for its location. We wanted the convenience of a full size kitchen and living room and two bedrooM. This condo was very difficult to find at night even with directions and a GPS. It's located at the very end of the street before it curves. You will see a sign for guest parking - go there! Lock box was easy to maneuver. It was nice that there is reserved parking which helped tremendously - people park in the garage along the ramps so be careful. Upon entering the condo we were pleasantly surprised. The living room was spacious , kitchen was well stocked and the master bedroom was very spacious. The 2nd bedroom is pretty tight w/the 2 twin beds but it was sufficient and exactly as the photo presented it to be. I was very disappointed because after removing my shoes I noticed sand and debris was sticking to my feet - a LOT of it - the condo was dirty! The living room, dining, kitchen and bedrooms' floors were so dirty! It was as if someone began to clean it and never got half way through it. So after a long flight and a 9 hr delay I had to vacuum the entire condo! NOT something I really wanted to do! The next morning I emailed the property management company about it but I didn't get a response within an hour so I then decided to call them so they could finish cleaning while we were gone. The property manager was very polite and apologetic and told me he would send someone over to clean. We left to do some sight seeing and when we returned the condo was clean - or so I thought! The living room only has one couch and nothing else to sit on, so if more than two people want to sit down and relax you have someone sitting in the dining room . It's odd too because the living room is very spacious and can easily accommodate another couch, love seat or chair. I would highly recommend the condo owners add another couch because it's a two bedroom condo and typically you will have at least three people staying - not very comfortable. My so. Realized the couch turns into a sleeper so he pulled the bottom out along with ALL the old Cheerios, sand, newspapers, and trash! I immediately pulled the couch from the wall (it's pretty lightweight) and low and behold at huge mess that was never cleaned! I really didn't want to have another cleaning crew come back in so I took out the vacuum and cleaned again. So so so NOT a good start ! The rest was fine and easy walk to the beach.

Watch out for ants!

Meet Expectation

  • 4 of 5

Great location. The housekeeping department should work harder but the manager's (Jim) quick action made up for the inconvenience. We enjoyed our stay.
