Recent Colony Surf reviews

  • What a gorgeous place to stay!

    "This spotless condo is a treasure. The broad window view of the Pacific, and the crashing waves that lulled us to sleep each night, are spectacular. The view of Diamond Head is unsurpassed anywhere else we have ever stayed. A short walk along the parkway or ocean takes you right into Waikiki; the peaceful quiet of Colony Surf is so close to the hubbub of Waikiki Beach and its shops and restaurants."

  • "Dream" Condo

    "My review is a little different than most; so before I start I will confirm what others have already written – Roger Lane is a very gracious and accommodating host. His condo is exactly like the pictures – only better; as I will explain. There I was, sitting in Rogers’ condo the first morning of our stay there. The windows are slid open the whole width of the unit, letting the warm trade winds softly flow thru-out the room – it’s still dark outside. I’m up early because of the time change. With Kona coffee in hand; I’m curled up on the long bench window seat; watching my beautiful Diamond Head sleep. The stars are still out and the only sound I hear are the waves flowing into shore just off to my right. I sit quietly and watch as the sun slowly awakens my Diamond Head. An overwhelming sense of peace flows over me. The magic of this island, this condo, this view is so healing for my soul. That is why I say it is so much more than the pictures. Thank-you Roger for sharing your little piece of paradise."

  • Rotation Vacation

    "My wife and I spent the month of May here. I had a rotation at the University of Hawaii and she had a month off. I have been traveling quite a lot in my life and this was the first time that I actually said "Wow" when I walked through the door of my accommodations. The apartment is beautifully furnished and the views of the ocean and Diamond Head are unparalleled. The apartment was clean on our arrival. There was a problem with a hinge on a cabinet when we arrived, and I contacted the owner who had the problem fixed promptly and without inconvenience to us. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is large, and the kitchen is well equipped. Having cable and wireless internet was an excellent convenience as well. The location of this building is ideal as it is right on the beach with its own private beach access, a short walk to Waikiki but not right in the bustle downtown, and with easy access to any of the major roadways. My rotation was at Kuikini Medical Center which was an easy 20 minute commute by car. I enjoyed being located next to the Outrigger Canoe Club and the Elks lodge since there were a few nights that they had live music until about 10pm and my wife and I could enjoy it from the comforts of our own apartment. In all we had a wonderful experience in Oahu and much of that is owed to our wonderful accommodation at Colony Surf. I would highly recommend this location and even more highly recommend this particular unit and owner. Thanks Again!!"

  • Great Spot in the Colony Surf

    "My wife and I stayed for the month of July while we were looking to purchase a home on Oahu. We have spent considerable time on Oahu previously including one stay at the Colony Surf a number of years ago. The CS is a really terrific place with its location, parking, beach and very helpful staff. The building is in good condition and well maintained. We found other residents and guests to be very friendly adding to the relaxed atmosphere. The condo is in very good condition and well equipped for month-long stays - we felt right at home. Trade winds keep the condo very comfortable and combined with the ocean/Diamond Head views, it is hard to beat. By the way, this unit faces east versus other units that are on the south side of the building directly overlooking the ocean. We think east facing is much preferred as there are ample ocean and DH views and the ocean facing units get full-on sun all afternoon. The beach at the CS is incredibly convenient, popular in the afternoons but not overcrowded, and there is a shower for rinse off afterward. We discovered that morning swims were also a real treat. Logistics are very convenient. There is a Safeway five minutes away on Kapahulu (another minute further is freeway access), Whole Foods at Kahala Mall, and Costco at Hawaii Kai. Walk into Waikiki, Kapiolani Park across the street, Diamond Head for an easy run in the morning. One recommendation to the owners. During our stay we redirected our Netflix DVDs for delivery to the CS (showed up in the mailbox on a very timely basis) but found that the DVD player in the unit did not play Blu-Ray discs. We actually went to BestBuy and purchased a new player ($99), connected to the TV (which is an HDTV) and enjoyed watching House of Cards, etc. Might be time to upgrade the DVD player in the condo. As we are moving to Oahu we will not likely have the occasion to stay here again but have recommended this condo to several friends."
