***One Month Minimum****

Aloha, and welcome to our vacation home in Hawaii specifically designed for the eclectic adult. We are only a few steps away (3 blocks) from the world renowned Waikiki beach and International Market Place (presently under construction), high-end shopping, fine and casual dining, and public transportation (taxi or bus). This newly designed adult studio is located in the center of Waikiki on Seaside Avenue between the old international Marketplace on Kuhio Avenue and the Ala Wai canal.

Why stay in a sparsely furnished hotel room where you are limited to sitting on a stiff upright chair or on the edge of a bed, when you can relax and enjoy your experience in Hawaii in this exceptionally clean, well designed and tastefully furnished tropical deluxe studio suite for less.

We have designed this studio with you, our (adult) guests in mind in order to make your Island experience as enjoyable as possible. We are able to provide you this comfort by using only top quality exotic hardwood furniture from Indonesia, appliances and accessories for your personal enjoyment. Other units at this price range in this building and other buildings in Waikiki do not compare to the level of detail we have provided for you in this suite.

Because this is also our personal vacation home which we visit several times a year, we are committed to keeping this unit very clean and up to date, by regularly servicing the air conditioner and replacing any items such as towels, bed linens, and cookware on a regular basis. For sanitary reasons, we have decided to remove all carpeting in this apartment and instead have used a nice soft travertine tile (natural stone) that is pleasant to walk on. This eliminates dust allergens that affect many people.

This studio boasts a large 100 square feet terracotta tiled lanai which is furnished with large comfortable wicker patio lounge chairs, coffee table and love seat. Here you can sit back, relax and simply enjoy the beautiful nightly sunsets to the south, gaze upon the grand views of Honolulu to the west, the serene and tranquil Ko’olau mountain range to the north or the stunning romantic evening reflections off the Ala Wai canal below.

We provide you with a deluxe Serta queen size bed, using quality bed linens with a thread count of 300 plus for your sleeping comfort after a long day of sightseeing. We also provide you with an inviting and ambient living and dining area to relax in where you can enjoy a simple meal, watch your favorite movies or TV programs on a wall mounted magnificent 42' plasma screen, or just listen to music on the stereo. The plasma screen is positioned strategically so that you can watch your shows from either the living room area or from the comfort of your bed.

This condo includes a customized kitchenette with all the conveniences should you desire to cook a simple meal or a late night snack after a night out in Waikiki. This kitchenette includes a standard fridge/freezer, a dual functioning microwave and convection oven, a dishwasher which are all accented in decorative stainless steel and a built in counter cook top.

Other amenities at no extra cost include wireless internet access, free local telephone calls, cable connected 42 inch plasma screen, and a Blu-Ray unit for Blu-Ray/CD/DVD playback. This unit is truly designed to be your tropical home away from home.

For your added peace of mind and safety, there is a 24 hour manned security desk located at the lobby entrance.

For all your sunbathing needs, the building has a large wrap around deck on the 6th floor which includes a large swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and many sun tanning areas. For your convenience, BBQ grills and picnic areas for outdoor cook outs, a small convenience store and a large coin Laundry facility are also located on this level. Public parking is available in the building at a daily rate of approximately $25 US and must be paid at the parking facility's booth located at the parking entrance. Enterprise car rental services are located on the south side of this building for your convenience.

Unlike other condos or apartments advertised on VRBO for the Waikiki area, all of our photos on this website were recently taken (Jan 2016) and is indicative of our apartment's current condition. I have heard of many disappointed clients complain to us that many of the properties they have rented in the past were not indicative of the property's pictures being advertised (this has also happened to my family so I know what it is like to be disappointed). So please be aware of those sites providing no pictures of their units or ones where photos look dated (you know...that tired and worn out 70's - 80's look). We also invite you to compare rates that are offered at the Island Colony Hotel, where room conditions are not guaranteed.

We are here to please you...not to deceive you. Please view our visitor's comments for unedited and genuine responses from guests whom have stayed with us. We decided to take the listing off for a year so that we could use our home during this period and therefore you might not see any comments for this period. However, if you do decide to stay with us, you won't be disappointed.

Mahalo!

About The Owner

We are both professionals and have traveled quite extensively around the world. We understand what travelers need and what they expect when they are on vacation. We have provided you with those comforts and needs in our condo and assure you that you will be satisfied with what we have to offer and what you expect from our unit when you arrive.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why The Owner chose South Oahu

Hawaii is where we spend most of our free time to relax and unwind from our busy schedules. In order to do this most effectively, we decided to buy a condo in Hawaii. We chose Honolulu because it mirrors our lifestyle. It offers the excitement of city life, beaches, good restaurants, shopping and all outdoor activities we like to participate in. Yet, we chose an area in Waikiki where we could also enjoy the quiet side of life in Waikiki.

This is now our second home where we are guaranteed to have all our personal items and needs available on a consistent basis. Hotels are unpredictable, even the good ones. By having our own condo, and renovating it with the quality materials we are accustomed to, it has become an extension of our own home on the mainland. We hope that you too will enjoy what we have to offer to ensure that your trip to Hawaii is a pleasant experience.

What makes this condo unique

We can completely unwind and relax in our condo. The lanai offers an escape where you have a birds eye view of Honolulu, the Ala Wai Canal and the Ko'olau mountains. Where you can read your favorite book or just sit back and enjoy the view and action below with your favorite drink.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again we enjoyed our stay, enhanced by recent changes made to the layout of the unit. Great views, clean and comfortable. Look forward to our next visit

Perfection in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Andre's condo for a little over a month, and had the time of my life-- the thoughtful décor, huge lanai (balcony), amazing sunset views, etc. It really felt like home away from home, not just some cookie cutter space. Waikiki beach is under 5 min walk. I look forward to coming back sometime soon!

Great location and great space!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in Andre's place in October. The booking process was very smooth and if we had any questions in regards to the place, Andre was very prompt to respond. The condo is located in a very central part in Waikiki, which made it very convenient for us. The space was clean and we loved that there were so many towels! The bed was very comfortable as well. You can also book a car rental in the lobby with Alamo car rental, which made it very convenient for us. All in all, we loved our stay at Andre's condo and would definitely rent it again!

Best location in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

Andre was very prompt in responding to any questions I had and were great in giving us instructions for accessing the unit. The condition of the unit was pretty nice and perfect size for my colleague.

The free wifi was very convenient and many amenities were provided like towels, cooking equipment, etc.

it was definitely functional and the unit was nicely decorated. You can't beat the location -- it is conveniently located near many great restaurants, stores and Waikiki beach.

Overall, my colleague was happy with his stay and the price was very good. Thank you for hosting us in your unit!

Beautiful Studio in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the whole month of June and loved staying in Andre's beautiful studio apartment in the Island Colony. The studio is very comfortable and has everything you'd ever need while on a long or short vacation. The furnishings are beautiful and much better than you will find in most rental studios. The queen size bed was very comfortable. Beautiful tile floors throughout the whole apartment and on the lanai. Very, very clean. You also have a very large lanai which adds a lot of space to the studio. You will be 1 block away from The Bus which goes everywhere. We couldn't figure out the TV at first (not great tech people) but Andre took care of everything and we were up and running! Andre couldn't be a better host. Very patient and wants everything to be right. He responds to your emails or calls immediately. Everything was great and we definitely give Andre's condo 5 stars😀. Emily and Dieter

Comfortable Stay in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

Condo is nicely decorated and furnished. The lanai is a great place to have a relaxing breakfast or enjoy the evening breeze. There were beach towels, chairs, and mat available for our use.

The beach and many shops and restaurants are close by and walkable. Public transportation to many tourist attractions, shops, and restaurants are located on Kuhio Avenue, which is only a block away.

Jeremy was very prompt and responsive answering our inquiries. We would recommend this property to our friends.

Great place to stay in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely a 5 star unit. We have stayed at other condos in Waikiki and this one is by far the best. We are making plans to return again next year. This unit is very clean and well stocked with bed linens, towels, and kitchen items. All you need to bring is your clothes. You are close to the bus stop, beach, and all the fun things to do in Waikiki. We had a great time! Jeremy is great to work with. Any questions you may have are answered promptly. He also took the time and trouble to send me my address book that got left behind. Thanks Jeremy.
