Why Tina Jordan chose Waikiki

We are located half a block from one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii. When you look out from our patio, your view is of Diamond Head, Kapiolani park and the ocean. No other buildings to look thru, unobstructed view of one of the most iconic land marks in the world..

What makes this studio unique

Some days you are able to hear the elephants trumpet, lions roar and monkeys chatter, its absolutely magical.. Surfing , sailing, snorkeling, shopping, hiking all available from our door steps.. We have one of the best locations in all of Oahu, hope you joins us soon.. Aloha

This place was amazing in every way! Tina could not have been more lovely or helpful, she made the stay as pleasant as the studio itself- together they get 5 stars, I'd give more if that were possible!! I cannot wait to return...and stay longer now that I know about this little gem.

We stopped over in Honolulu for a few days after a week on the big island and probably would have just booked into the hotel a few blocks away we have stayed at several times before but it was unavailable due to renovation. After looking for an alternative close by we decided to book here. GREAT CHOICE! We have found a new favorite. Tina and John have created a true gem of a studio. Great location, sparkling clean, comfortable and with all the amenities you could ask for and then some. Waikiki is right at your door step. And if you rent a car, the parking spot in the basement is super convenient. Loved it. Thanks, Tina. Looking forward to next time and a longer stay.

Exceptional Stay

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about our stay at Tina's "Slice of Paradise" condo in Waikiki. Tina was so helpful actually taking us to the local AT&T store so we could puurchase a SIM card then to the Safeway for groceries on our first day. She also went through tbe condo/building to show us everything such as where things were, how things operate, etc. The view from the lanai is spectacular. Great views of Diamond Head, the Zoo Gardens as well as a descent view of the beach. The condo was extremely well supplied. All the condiments you will need. The Kurig coffee machine was a big bonus for my wife and it came supplied with coffee packets and creamers. The bed was very comfortable & the wifi worked well. I could go on & on. Tina has definitely set the Gold Standard for a condo rental in Waikiki. In fact we would not consider anywhere else if we return. Thanks again for everything Tina, it was indeed a memorable stay.

Wonderful Trip - amazing host and condo!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Waikiki Grand 6 times. On this trip, we visited with family members and we rented a total of 4 rooms. This rental was by far the nicest of them all. Great job to Tina for making us feel so welcome and well cared for.

If you are thinking about the Waikiki Grand, I can tell you that the location can't be beat. It is on the more quiet side of the strip and overlooks the zoo, park, and Diamond Head. The hotel is well cared for with a friendly front-desk staff. The studio rooms are small but many have an outstanding view of the park and beach. If you are looking for a grand suite, keep looking. However, if you are alright with a compact condo and you want a great location - this is your place. I think this location strikes a fine balance between value and quality.

Tina's condo is well positioned on the 5th floor. The room was recently remodeled and comes exceptionally well-equipped. We appreciated the bottled water and snacks along with amenities you would get in a fine hotel room (iron, hair dryer, toiletries, plus many extras (she even included "reader glasses" and a couple of stamps for postcards back home!). The air conditioner worked very well (not always common in Hawaii). The room owner/host had even arranged for a parking spot. She met us at the room and was even able to provide an early check-in! She checked in on us during our stay to make sure everything was OK yet she was not overbearing. The room was clean and had everything we needed (blender - plastic wrap - coffee - creamer - bottled water - salt/pepper - hot plate - cork screw - toothbrush - extra pillows - dimming lights - beach gear - etc. etc. etc)

Like I said - I have stayed at this hotel a number of times and I recommend it highly to people who don't need or want a full resort experience. This unit is by far the best I have experienced at the hotel and I recommend it highly. My only consideration is that I want to say here again and I fear if I rave too much about it, it will be forever booked!

Thank you Tina for such a great experience and for sharing your condo. Great job!

I will make every attempt to book here again the next time we come to Waikiki.

Thanks again,

Troy and Steve

Best VRBO experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Tina's condo. She had every amenity we could think of and more. The location and views made our stay just perfect. And to top it off, she and her husband couldn't have been more friendly. I would recommend her place again and again. Thank you for making our vacation a memorable one. :)
