Recent Waikiki property reviews

  • A lovely apartment!

    "We stayed one month in this beautiful condo and would recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in Honolulu. The location was great and all the facilities were just what we had hoped for. The property manager was very quick to respond to any queries we had during our stay and the staff at the building were also very helpful."

    "We appreciate so much about this condo. The owner is very accomodating to our special requests. We would not be going back for the third year if we weren't completely happy. We love the comfort of this condo, the supplies that are there upon arriving, the view of the lanai and ocean, and the amenities of the Ilikai. The Ilikai Hotel, the pool, the towel availability in the pool, the lagoon, the closeness of the Hawaiian Hilton and their grounds, Magic Island and the Aloa Moana Shopping Center. The bus is steps away on Hobron Street."

  • Ideal Location!

    "This renovated condo is very well thought out, comfortable, and clean. It is an ideal location for exploring Waikiki (within walking distance of everything you would want) and the rest of the island by car. Parking is a huge bonus. Togo and Ana are wonderful, welcoming hosts. The kitchen has everything you would need. Looking out on the marina every morning is a joy!"

  • Wonderful experience

    "My wife and I stayed at this unit for two months August and September 2011 and had a wonderful stay. The unit was everthing as described on the web site , it was fully equipped with everthing we needed , was very comfortable and with high quality furnishings , the beds were very clean and comfortable , the washer and drier worked fine , the owners were a lovely couple who were a pleasure to deal with and the staff at the desk etc were the friendliest and most helpful ever encountered .In addition we received our security deposit back promptly and in full. All in all a wonderful and flawless experience. What sets the Watermark apart is its extensive grounds/gardens and wonderful staff. We have stayed in Hawaii 27 times and this unit was the best by far in all aspects .The unit is on a lower level but has the advantage of the biggest lanai in the complex. We loved sitting on the lanai with the breeze rustling the palm leaves.It is an 8 minute walk to Ala Moana shopping centre , is within 2 minute walk of an ABC store and a supermarket and 2 minutes to the bus route. Eight minutes and you are at the main bus routes at Ala Moana. We unreservedly highly recommend this unit , the owners and the staff. We will definitely stay there again. Steve and Pam , Tasmania , Australia ps we had another couple stay with us for 6 weeks of our stay and the unit layout was very friendly in accomodating both couples. The unit is layed out with the main bedroom and bathroom at one end with the second bedroom and second bathroom at the other end. In the middle was the Kitchen and lounge room which afforded a great buffer for privacy etc but a great common area to eat and socialise."
