About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (sleeps up to 5 guests)

Aloha and welcome to Hawaii! If you are looking for an adventurous TROPICAL PARADISE - get on a plane and several “short” hours later you can relax and enjoy a beautiful island of Oahu with its unforgettable beaches, breathtaking views, gorgeous sunsets and a variety of fun activities! I live in San Francisco and would like to offer you a fully furnished apartment in Waikiki which I rent out throughout the year when my family and I do not vacation on the islands. Whether you are looking for a nice comfortable place to stay during your family vacation or if you are a frequent business visitor to Honolulu or if you would like to get away from cold Canadian winters for a month or two, you would certainly enjoy your stay at my recently remodeled 1BR condo.


This 23 story high-rise resort-type secure building is located in the heart of Waikiki at 444 Nahua St. between Ala Wai Blvd. and Kuhio St. My elegant 1BR suite with a partial ocean view is on the 11th floor.


The LIVING ROOM has a queen size SOFA-BED which can be easily unfolded for additional sleeping space. Living room has a 32 inch TV with DVD player and collection of DVDs. The BEDROOM has a CAL KING SIZE bed, chest, night stand and a wall-to-wall mirror closet. The unit is equipped with 2 AC units; cable, local phone service, internet and electricity are included. Bed linens and bath towels are provided. The condo was recently fully remodeled.

A completely separate KITCHEN is fully equipped with a refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, microwave, coffee maker, electric kettle, crock pot, cooking utensils and dishes. The KITCHEN has a large window and a bar counter outside on the lanai. The BATHROOM has a dual entrance (from the bedroom and living room) providing extra privacy. The BATHROOM contains a standard size tub and shower combo opposite to His and Her DOUBLE SINKS. The condo is equipped with a WASHER and DRYER.


The unit has a SPACIOUS OPEN LANAI (~200 sq. feet) with a lounge chair, dining table and 4 chairs, and at night is a great place to relax after an exhausting day full of sightseeing/activities and enjoy a beautiful OCEAN VIEW and fabulous Hawaiian sunset. The lanai extends the entire length of the unit with a floor to ceiling glass sliding door serving access to the lanai.


Beach umbrellas, towels, chairs, mats and adult/child boogie boards are available to take to the beach (FREE of charge.) The roof top recreation deck contains a swimming POOL, SAUNA, and lounge area with grill/BBQ pits and FITNESS room. You can enjoy a magnificent 360 degree view of Honolulu City, Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head and Friday night fireworks at Hilton Hawaiian Village. Waikiki BEACH is only a few minutes away, just past the International Market.


The brand new International Market Place (scheduled to re-open in August 2016) is a block away, and Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center is just 2 blocks. Kapiolani Park with its many attractions including the Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium, tennis courts and sports fields is located at the end of Waikiki. Public transportation is very convenient; buses come by every few minutes, and can take you to major places on Oahu.


Rates start at $115 per night depending on the season and holidays. Hawaii tax at 13.962%, $ 100 cleaning fee and $300 refundable security deposit apply. Pre-assigned secure covered PARKING is available at $10 per day (free with monthly rentals.) NO IN-UNIT SMOKING or PETS, please. Complimentary early c/i or late c/o is provided if available and agreed upon in advance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Having just spent seven weeks at Elina's condo, we would heartily recommend this unit to anyone. The condo was clean and everything was just as we expected. Really appreciated everything, a 'home away from home'. We enjoyed the large sunny lanai. A totally wonderful experience. Thank you Elina

Central location, walk to Waikiki beach, area attractions close bye . The condo bldg was secured with elevator fob to control unwanted entry.. Used barbecue on rooftop and used sun blocking blinds on balcony. Ac was nice for sleeping and to block out street noise. Over all it was a great stay.

Excellent location! Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at Elina's condo and are very happy with our experience! We had 3 adults and 2 young children (3 yrs and 10 months) staying at the condo from Aug 29th to Sep 5th. When we arrived, we were able to easily follow the instructions to obtain the keys from the lock box located just beside the building. The building itself is secure and it seems liked a lot of tenants were also travellers. The condo was exactly as described, was clean and well kept and the lanai was HUGE. The sofa bed was a bit saggy but was still comfortable and we were able to sleep well in it. There was wifi and we liked that the TV was hooked up with Netflix. The location is EXCELLENT and we felt safe at all times. The condo is located beside the International Market Place and is in short walking distance from the beaches (<10 mins) and bus stop (~2 mins) to Diamond Head and Ala Moana Mall. There were sand toys and items available for us to bring to the beach. Prepare to use the laundry machine during your visit as there is no towel service (remember to bring detergent or you can buy from the Food Pantry store). We followed the check out instructions which included tidying and returning the keys to the lock box and the full security deposit arrived in the mail ~2 weeks later. The only thing that would have made the experience better is if there was a pack and play available for the baby. We will definitely book this condo again when we return. Thank you Elina!

Close to everything

  • 4 of 5

It was a good stay! Pool to use, kitchen had everything you needed. Air conditioners were good and building was quiet. Parking spot was extremely tight. It is not a "luxury" condo, but it provided everything we needed. To further comment on the cleanliness comment from others who have stayed, it really does need a deep cleaning. I have extremely high standards of what is clean and the cleaners definitely do not meet those standards. I did clean it myself and I would not have requested the cleaners to come back as that must be their standard cleaning. All in all it was okay.

Excellent location for the rental price!

  • 4 of 5

The price of this rental can't be beat if looking for a place to stay in the center of Waikiki. Surrounding hotels were significantly more expensive, so overall, I was satisfied with my stay here. The mattress was comfortable (not always the case in VRBOs, unfortunately!) and the kitchen was equipped with anything one would need for cooking a full meal (though with all of the dining options within the immediate vicinity, eating well without having to do an ounce of cooking is pretty tempting). Another plus was the 2 air conditioner units--one in the living room and one in the bedroom--which were generous in power considering the size of the unit. Even on the hottest days of the year, I'd feel confident that the two a/c units would be able to keep the unit frosty cool (not the case in the previous VRBO I stayed in during this trip where there was only one weak a/c unit for a much larger apartment, making the cooling power inadequate for the space).

My only complaint during my stay here was in regards to the overall cleanliness of the unit. Because the owner does not live in the same city, the cleaning of the unit between renters is (unfortunately but inevitably) difficult to supervise. In the case of this unit, the surfaces and floors were clearly dirty as if only given a cursory dry wipe or sweep. There were food crumbs on the kitchen counters (hidden by the marble design, but made obvious once I wiped the counter with a wet cloth), mold build-up in the washing machine (the top agitator was also malfunctioning/broken, so it didn't wash properly), dirt along the closet and wall edges, grime on the tile floor (indicating that it hadn't been mopped in a while), etc. Considering the very detail-oriented communications received from the owner, I have no doubt that the owner would have been just as surprised by the poor cleaning as I was. Regardless, this did put a damper on an otherwise lovely stay. Should the cleaner/cleaning situation change and the maintenance improved, I would not hesitate to stay in this VRBO again nor recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Hello Ena and thank you for providing me with your feedback. To be honest I am surprised by the negative feedback re: the cleaning of my unit. During your stay the only comment you made to me was that the agitator was not working properly but you did not mention any other issues you brought up in your review. In my check in/check out instructions I clearly ask my guests to provide me with a timely feedback (i.e., any issues/concerns which come up DURING they stay) need to be brought up to my attention right away. If you would have mentioned upon your check in or even the following morning that you did not find the unit in a satisfactory condition, I would have asked my house-keeping to come back and clean. Unfortunately, I can't resolve issues when I don't know about them. I am sorry that this put a damper on your vacation but had I known about it, I certainly would have done smth about it in a timely manner. Since I don't live in Hawaii, I rely on feedback from my house-keeping and guests. Aloha! Elina

Clean and great location

  • 4 of 5

Small 1 bd condo but it had everything that you would need. Location was perfect for us to walk around Waikiki. Couch and pull out bed were not so comfortable but luckily we did not spend a ton of time in the condo just made for a little sore back in the morning. Added bonus was the security of the building. Would stay here again.

Great Place in Waikiki!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this Condo in Waikiki so convenient to almost everything you would want. We were able to watch the fireworks from the balcony on Friday night set off by the Hilton on the Beach. This place was well worth it very clean and newly renovated. The pool on the roof top was great also when we would go to beach in the day and pool at night it was just great. Elaina was very good to work with and was just a phone call or email away and she would get right back to you. I felt very self there and the neighborhood was easy to walk and get around. Loved to walk on the Ala Wai Canal it was so beautiful to watch the rollers in the water practicing . The new international market place is very visible from the balcony but I really do miss the the old market place. All in all it was a great place and comfortable. We were there for a month and I hope next year we can get this condo again. There is also parking but make sure you get a small car.
