  • Great stay at Mango House

    "We (family of 4 with 2 teenagers) stayed at Mango House for 2 weeks during July. Everything was as advertised - the apartment was clean, well maintained and stocked with linen, towels and beach toys. Dana was a breeze to deal with - with quick responses to emails and accurate instructions which made our arrival as first-timers very simple. The location was just great for us, with everything in easy walking distance and the bus only a few steps away. Lots of great eating places within the surrounding areas and of course the beach only a very short stroll down the road. We would definately stay there again. Thanks Dana - we had a great time."

  • All you need

    "We chose to stay here as it was close to the Hilton Hawaiian Village, where we were attending a wedding. It turns out it was close to everything, walking distance to Ala Moana, the beaches and the main area of town. For those who prefer it, the trolley and bus are just around the corner. Having both an ABC store and a Food Pantry close by, meant we could take advantage of the well equipped kitchen. The views from the lanai were stunning, especially at breakfast time. Junko was warm, helpful and friendly, even at three in the morning. My only slight complaint is that the aircon, never seemed to get cool enough, unless you closed the curtains, but then you missed the view. Would happily recommend and would definitely stay here again. If you get sick of brekkie on the lanai, try Goofy's cafe in Ala Moana Bvde (heading towards Waikiki), tasty, fresh local and organic food."

  • Excellent location!

    "Our Hawaiian trip started and ended in Honolulu so we got 2 different apartments. After checking in on our first arrival we were asked to see the welcome desk. I was preparded for some sort of sell or similar but it ended up being a great introduction: we were advised of great to-dos including the fireworks display on Friday nights. On our first arrival we were soon very happy that we also booked our second stint at the same place. Our family of 2 adults and 2 small kids had plenty of space to stretch and live comfortably. Everything was clean and well appointed. The location is ideal with the beach and shops within a few minutes walk. Wyndham put on a few activites (like lei making, a hula show, etc.) which might be a bore to older kids but our young ones had a ball. We didn't use the pool (it isn't heated) but the spa was a nice way to finish off a day at the beach. A note to those with cars that parking is an added cost. The valet downstairs is very convenient but with tips prepare for up to 40 dollars a day. There is cheaper parking available a short walk from the apartments. (But hey, it's a holiday and who can be bothered!) All in all: a very positive experience and highly recommended."

  • Our Christmas Vacation in Paradise

    "We enjoyed our stay in your condo. The location is perfect and we had everything we needed to make our stay complete. We really appreciated having a washer and dryer along with a full size stove and refrigerator. How nice to eat breakfast out on the lanai. One suggestion--maybe a TV in the bedroom. When on vacation it's nice to relax and watch some TV from your bed, while kids are watching Sponge Bob in the living room!! Building has good security. We felt very safe there."

Imagine waking up on a tropical island with the salty sea breeze gently blowing through the window and a sandy white beach sitting just outside your door. Turn your dream into a reality by planning a vacation to Waikiki.

Situated on the south shore of the Hawaiian island Oahu in the the city of Honolulu, the neighborhood of Waikiki is famous for being the former playground of Hawaiian royalty. Waikiki, which means spouting waters in Hawaiian, is the area’s main destination for visitors from all around the world. Here you’ll find the height of Hawaiian culture with various restaurants, shops, activities and entertainment.

Waikiki is mostly known for its exceptional beaches, with almost everything within walking distance to the ocean shores. Whether you’re looking to learn to surf, dive in for a swim or just laze around in the sand, it’s all right there for you.

In addition to aquatic adventures, there’s plenty to do on land as well. Waikiki and the surrounding areas are full of historic sites, museums, natural wonders and a ton more to make your vacation a memorable one.

Things to Do in Waikiki

Diamond Head: As one of Hawaii’s most well-known landmarks, Diamond Head is a volcanic tuft cone with an exciting hiking trail, amazing coastal views and military history. The crater was formed more than 300,000 years ago during an explosive volcanic eruption. The trail was built in 1908 as part of a coastal defense system, and on the summit itself you'll see military bunkers. The top of the hike also provides a postcard-like view of the shoreline.

Waikiki Beach: Waikiki Beach is one of the most famous in the world. You won’t want to miss out on the two-mile stretch of white sandy shores meeting stunning, warm waters. Waikiki Beach is the perfect spot to stretch out that towel and relax in the warm sun with a good book or take to the water for adventures with boogie boards, surfing and swimming. It’s also a great place to try out a catamaran or outrigger canoe ride.

Society of Seven (SoS): For some top-notch Hawaiian entertainment, look no further than the Society of Seven. This group has been headlining shows at the Outrigger Main Showroom since 1969 and still wows crowds to this day. The Hawaiian band puts everything they have into each show, displaying their talent and energy every time they take the stage. Each performance is full of singing, dancing and comedy skits, showing off their hilarious personalities. SoS has released many albums and also has a regular show in Las Vegas. The SoS show in Waikiki is a favorite among locals and visitors alike.

Pearl Harbor: There are a variety of exhibits, memorials, displays and museums within the ground of Pearl Harbor to honor those lost in the attacks and those who served during the second World War.

USS Arizona Memorial: Part of Pearl Harbor is the USS Arizona Memorial. This spot marks the resting place of more than 1,000 sailors and Marines killed during the attack during WWII. The memorial was built in 1962 and is certainly a historic and moving place to visit. The remains of the the battleship were declared a National Historic landmark in 1989.

Top of Waikiki: For an exciting dinner experience unlike any other, head to Top of Waikiki. This special dining establishment is Hawaii’s only revolving restaurant, providing you with 360-degree views of the islands, beaches and mountains as you eat. Plan your meal for sunset and watch the amazing array of colors fade into night.

Ono Hawaiian Foods: If you’re looking for an eatery that serves up some of the best local food, look no further than Ono Hawaiian Foods. Off the beaten track, this restaurant provides you with traditional Hawaiian dishes like kalua pig and lau lau with pipikaula and lomi salmon and poi on the side.

International Marketplace: With more than 100 shops and stalls set against a jungle-like backdrop of banyan trees, this is definitely one place you’ll want to stop to pick up mementos and gifts for loved ones. Whether you’re looking for traditional Hawaiian jewelry, fun knick-knacks or just a t-shirt to commemorate your visit, you’re sure to find it at the International Marketplace.
