Recent Waikiki reviews

  • Our stay

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The room was very comfortable and modern with really good air con. The Ala Moana hotel is a good building with great service when checking in and we booked our day trips in the lobby and they were very helpful. It was also convenient being connected to the shopping centre! Only negative would be it is about a $15 can ride or 20 min walk to the main part in Waikiki and the nightlife. Other than that, we loved staying there."

  • Good stay and very Nice view

    "Appartement idéalement situé dans honolulu, proche de toutes commodités et aéroport sans ses nuisances. Magnifique vue sur la mer. Très bien équipé même s'il nous a manqué une table pour manger confortablement, très propre et pratique. Nous sommes prêts à relouer ce studio et le conseillons vivement."

  • Outstanding Views and Great Location!

    "I loved the location of this condo! We had stayed in Waikiki before so were prepared for the noise and busyness but loved being able to see the ocean and the zoo from our lanai and have a 1 minute walk to be on the beach! My only downside (and it's personal preference) is it is small and I don't know if I could have stayed there for more than 4 or 5 days even if it was just my husband and I. But we're both introverts who like privacy. :)"

  • Great stay with a Great Owner

    "We were able to stay in Marni's condo for a week at the end of August 2014. Marni was great to deal with by e-mail as we had no phone on our end. She communicated well with us and was able to help us get everything arranged for our stay. We arrived late on a Saturday evening and were extremely glad we had parking included. The kids slept in the bedroom on the twin beds and we slept on the Murphy Bed. Extremely comfortable for everyone. We just moved the couch and table to accommodate the bed. The unit was fine for the four of us. The unit was very clean and having toilet paper and dish soap made it easy to get started. There were also beach towels, sand mats, snorkels, and body boards available to us to use. As well, there were guide books with suggestions of activities and different amenities available on Oahu. We used the pool quite a bit but found it busy only on the Sunday, but the rest of the week, it was not bad at all. I feel fortunate we were able to stay here; should we ever return to Oahu, we would not hesitate to ask Marni to rent her place again."

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.
