Why Owner / Property Manager chose Waikiki

Island Colony is in the middle of the largest ocean on the planet, in the widest state of the US, on the Hawaiian Island with the most beaches, in a volcanic mountain chain containing the highest mountain on the planet (top to bottom), in an ocean that contains the oldest living animal (black coral ~ 4k year old), fastest fish (Pacific Sailfish), mammal that dives the deepest and holds it's breath the longest (Cuvier's Whale), longest living wild bird that has the widest wingspan and has flown the farthest (Laysan Albatross named: Wisdom).

What makes this studio unique

You won't find depth and breadth of natural beauty, culture, recreation, shopping, dining, entertainment, security, infrastructure or friendliness of this magnitude anywhere else in the world.

Not worth the money and false allegations of damage

  • 3 of 5

We did not find this studio up to the standards that we have seen in other vbro rentals. Furthermore we were charged for new sheets that we did not damage.

Owner's Response: We have rented this unit out to ~500 guests over the past 10 years, accumulating an average of 4.5 stars with another vacation rental marketing website. 58% of our reviews are 5 star reviews. We just signed up with vrbo. The unit was recently remodeled just before this guest checked in with high quality furnishings and fixtures you won't find in units priced much higher. Travertine flooring and walls imported from Turkey, full kitchenette and more. See the ad and photos for yourself and compare. The guest did not report and subsequently denied damages. We showed the guest date, time and geo-coded high resolution photos taken immediately after the guest checked out. Broken glassware. Permanent stains on sheets. We got cut by broken glass shards when cleaning after this guest checked out. We had to spend extra time and expense attempting stain removal as well as shopping and purchasing replacement sheets. This is our first booking with vrbo. Must be beginner's luck. We don't recommend this guest to any other host.
