Completely remodeled ocean view, high floor 2 bedroom condo! Popular building with residential feel and great amenities, close to everything but in a quiet neighborhood. Ocean views from the living room and both bedrooms, and a large lanai perfect for morning coffee or sunset meals.
Free covered parking. Guest parking is also available.
Waikiki Lanais is a 5 minute walk to the heart of Waikiki beach with surfing, protected swimming areas, and gorgeous sunsets. Close to world-class shopping and restaurants on Kalakaua Avenue. The building features a recreation deck with heated pool, hot tub, and exercise room, large commercial laundry room, and a rooftop deck with BBQ for entertaining or enjoying a drink at the end of the day.
Wake up to ocean and canal views in the master bedroom, which features a queen bed, walk in closet, and doorwall leading to the lanai. The second bedroom has two twin beds and a floor-to-ceiling window facing the ocean. The living room has a pull-out sofa bed when extra space is needed.
Our condo has a full kitchen with granite countertops, gas range, microwave, and dishwasher. It is fully stocked with cooking utensils, pots and pans, coffee maker, and a rice cooker. BBQ grills are available on the rooftop deck. The large dining table seats 6 comfortably.
You can vacation with or without a car. The Food Pantry supermarket is a short walk away, or drive to Don Quijote for gourmet food, fresh fish, and Japanese imports. Weekly farmers markets are within two blocks at the Waikiki Community Center and King’s Village, or a short drive to the Kapiolani Community College farmers market. Oahu has great public transportation (The Bus) that will take you anywhere on the island.
To make your stay more comfortable and keep you connected, the condo includes air conditioning, a high definition LCD TV, Blu-Ray/DVD player, basic cable, and WiFi with high speed internet. We provide everything you need for a fun day at the beach, including towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys.
Our famiy of two adults and two older teenage daughters had a wonderful stay in this apartment over the Christmas/New Year period. The apartment was easily found by the cab driver ($32 from airport) and the entry instructions were clear to follow. As our flight had arrived at 7:00am, Jim and Yas had kindly organised an early arrival for us and this enabled a great start to our holiday.
Apartment is light and airy with lovely breezes in the evening which negated the need to use the air conditioning very much. Bedrooms adequate for holiday accommondation with the walk-in robe/storage area in the main bedroom making it especially comfortable.
The advertised description is accurate concerning the facilities. All basic equipment for cooking up holiday type meals supplied but the apartment is within easy walking distance of excellent cafes, restaurants and takeaway outlets as well as the Food Pantry and the infamous ABC shops. Safeway about 30 mins pleasant walk along the canal and a local street for larger shops - join their Club for discounts!
Best attribute of the apartment is the lanais. Lovely and shaded until mid-morning and then cool breezes in the evening. Can see the water, glimpses of Diamond Head and also the canal. The surrounding building lights when the sun goes down are beautiful and you can even see the tips of the Hilton fireworks on Friday evenings.
Great customer service by everyone at Primo Hawaii Properties and would recommend this property to anyone for short or longer term stays.
The apartment was exactly as described and photographed. Correspondence with Jim and Yas was prompt and extremely helpful.
The apartment itself was very roomy for our family of four (2 adults and 2 teenage daughters) and had all the basics required for a holiday in Waikiki. Kitchen well equipped for holiday type cooked meals but there was an abundance of takeaway meal choices within 5 mins walk as well as the infamous ABC shops. Food Pantry was about 10 mins away and Safeway about 30 mins brisk walk for supermarket type shopping.
Allow about 15 mins if walking to the beach but 5 mins of this is waiting for the lift and getting out of the building! No gripes - appreciated the security. Also appreciated the laundry on the 5th floor and the book swap!
Pool area great - particularly if you just wanted to relax and have a cool dip, and the roof area was good for some more panoramic photos.
However, the best feature of the apartment was the lanais. Breakfast and evening meals with wonderful views every day. Although you couldn't actually see the beach, the water landscape was great and there was always something happening around the streets below in the evenings. Being a corner apartment you could also see glimpses of the canal behind and also parts of Diamond Head. It also ensured you had cool breezes in the evening from a couple of sides so we hardly used the air conditioning.
All in all a great rental for a couple of weeks and would highly recommend dealing with Jim and Yas at Primo Hawaii Properties.
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!
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.
Great apartment fabulous views from the balcony. Good kitchen. 5 minute walk to the beach. Would recommend to groups - four girls shared and had plenty of space.
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!
