Recent Waikiki reviews

  • Quality location and Exceptional Condo

    "The reason all the reviews are 5 star is because this is truly a 5 star vacation rental. Location: the south end of Waikiki has its own charm. The beach here is less crowded and there is a park that gives the beach a more expansive feel than Waikiki central with the hotels built right to the sand. The beach is 5 minutes walk, the shopping extends down to this end of the beach and the main (expensive) shopping area is about a 15 minute stroll. This location allows access to all Waikiki has to offer and yet offers more privacy than the madhouse that is central Waikiki. We had a car and freeway access was about a mile away. The building: The Waikiki Banyan has a parking garage which is PRICELESS if one has a car. There is a market in the building, a very nice lobby, and there are 4 elevators - very little wait. The water pressure is great and there are plenty of electrical outlets in the rooms. We didn't make it to the pool/rec floor so I can't comment on that. There is a perception that south Waikiki is older and therefore run down - NOT TRUE. This building is in fine shape. The condo: This condo truly sets this rental apart. The 19th floor gets great trade winds and the corner location enhances that - you can get a crossdraft. The furnishings are top of the line - leather couch, actual artwork (not Target pictures), high end bathroom fixtures, a bidet, HD premium cable TV with free On-Demand movies, luxurious towels/sheets, plenty of storage, top end appliances (no Mr. Coffee here - a Stainless Steel drip, a French Press, and a Turkish pot). The beach chairs are Tommy Bahamas and there are umbrellas, carrying bags, etc. Everything one might need is here. The space use is ingenious (bed is on hinges, split door fridge, screens...) and it feels much bigger than the photos show. And the bed was as comfortable as any I've ever been in, including my own! Everything was intuitively where it should be and worked perfectly. It really did feel like a home from the first day - that's high praise indeed. Michael should be mentioned as well. He was prompt, courteous, helpful, provided additional local recommendations, and checked in on us to be sure we were happy. Everything he told us was true - there was no sales pitch inflation. In my opinion, he sets the standard for VRBO rental owners. In summary, this rental was far more than we expected. We give this condo our highest recommendation."

  • I call this my home in Hawaii

    "I never wrote any reviews in my life. I just got back from Hawaii yesterday and this is the first thing that I am doing after I unpacked all my luggages. I and my husband couldn't believe what we were seeing when we walked in to the place. Everything was as it was written, so clean and organized. We will definitely come back on next trip to Hawaii. We couldn't ask for more but just wished it had come with free parking :) Just a few things that I want the owner to know: 1. One of the snorkelling gear set is missing a mask. (we went to Hanauma bay and found out that a mask was missing and had to walk all the way back to the parking to get money to rent a mask :( ) 2. The door doesn't close very well. On the first night, we came back from a grocery shopping and so shocked to see the door wasn't closed. Checked out the unit immediately but everything was find. We just let the door go thinking that it would just close but you have to pull real hard to close it. 3. The keys didn't work well. A few days after arrival, we realized that one of the key didn't work. So we used the other key but on the last day none of them worked. It was right before the check out time so we were so freaking out and ran to the front dest. Thank got they made a copy. We went up but still not working. Went down again and they fix them up and this time they worked. Phew! 4. The shower handle needs to be pulled real hard! 5. The parking fee is $25 per day not $20 Other than that I couldn't ask for more! (Maybe the parking ;)) We are thinking of going to Hawaii next year already and we will book this place again for sure! Thanks Gerard for sharing your lovely place with us. (There are some Musubi in the fridge I forgot to take them with me Sorry! But bottles of water and juice we left them for next people) Thanks again and I will talked to you soon ;) Alvi"

  • Great Family Stay!!!

    "We had an absolute brilliant stay at Christy and Joan’s Condo during the September Australian school holidays. We have 2 kids – 6 and 2 in ages and the condo had everything you could possibly want for a great family holiday – snorkelling gear, beach mats, towels, boogie boards, booster seat for our 2 year old, high chair, spare stroller/pram too if you need it. The 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms were fantastic – the space was fantastic for what we needed. We cooked 4 nights out of the 11 we were there and it was really good to have that option as sometimes our 2 year old was too over it after a day in the sun. We had a few hiccups with the wifi but we sorted those out. It was great to be able to do washing whilst away too so the laundry facilities on the floor were very handy. Christy was fabulous to deal with – the whole process was seamless and we will definitely be back the next time we visit for sure. There will be no other alternative for us as we were so happy with everything. Already missing the beautiful Hawaiian hospitality, weather, shopping and food! Mahalo Christy and Joan! We’ll be back!"

Waikiki Travel Tips

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.

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.

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.

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.
