Why Rick Laporga chose South Oahu

During our vacation, my husband and I were captivated by the Ocean, Diamond Head, canal view of this penthouse. After the vacation, we ended up purchasing this unit from the owner. We have recently fully transformed this condo throughout into a luxury penthouse. We hope you enjoy our beautiful vacation home as much as we do and ask that you please take great care of it. Mahalo!

Beautiful condo.

  • 5 of 5

This condo suited our needs exactly. The view was gorgeous and the location was just what we wanted. It was an easy walk to the beach and to all the shopping on Kalakaua ave. We also had convenient parking and pick up for the tours that we went on.

Room was great but front desk, elevator and parking attendant horrible

  • 3 of 5

The rental was amazing and the views were spectacular. However you have to pay for parking daily and the parking attendants were awful. Everytime we would leave they would act annoyed that they had to put down their phone or food plate to open the gate. It was really pretty ridiculous. Also the elevators were slow, at one point two of the three were not working and we got stuck in one for a period of five minutes. There was a lot of homeless people surrounding the outside of the building.

We enjoyed our stay in Hawaii. Rick and the staff was very accommodating. Our late check-out was very helpful since our flight was in the evening. Thank you for the stay.

6 stars and definitely coming back again!

  • 5 of 5

Love love love this beautiful penthouse condo. Was a bit apprehensive about booking this place wirh the age of the building when I read the rarlier reviews. As I read more about the convenient location, great views, updated interior and cleanliness, I decided to book my dream vacation here. I must admit that as we first arrive and saw the building, I did doubt if I made the right decision to book this place. I was relieved to see that the penthouse units had a separate elevator that can only be accessed with our condo key to the 42nd floor. When I open the condo door, my jaws dropped when with the 270 degree panaramic Diamond Head, canal and Waikiki ocean views. The unit was elegantly updated with hard wood floor and modern kitchen. The interior walls seems to have been recently painted and the bathrooms showers floors looked sparkling new (btw, I am a clean freak and can't stand dirty bathrooms).

Really enjoyed soaking in the oversized bathtub with some wine each night after the long day. Also loved watching the Friday night Waikiki fireworks from the dining room 42nd floor!! Love love love this place and will definitely come back again!

I always appreciated travelers sharing their travel tips so here is mine:

5 am sunrise hike at Koko Head Trail. 1048 vertical steps up to reach the summit. If you are relatively fit, you can reach the summit in 40 min. Enjoy the surreal sunrise at the summit with incredible 360 ocean views and Haunua Bay. Stop by nearby Haunua Bay and the famous Blow Hole lookout before head back to Waikiki for breakfast.

Lanikai Pillbox trail sunrise hike. You absolutely can't miss this relatively short but steep hike to the bunker. The sunrise rays reflecting on the ocean between the two mokes will take your breath away. Steep but short decend to the base. Stop by Pali lookout before heading back to Waikiki for Lenard's Bakery for Masalada and coffee for breakfast.

Chinaman's Hat sunrise and Kaulua Ranch (where the famous Jurassic Park was filmed). Many beautiful beaches along the coast.

Makapu'u Lighthouse sunrise hike. Arrive just before 5 am to catch the sunrise at the summit. Easy paved hike all the way.

Other must do's:

Punch bowl swap meet to get lots of local sourvenirs.

Diamond Head sunrise hike awesome ocean and Waikiki city view

North shore Giovanni Shrimp Truck and shave ice

Honolulu Kitchen Monapuas (try all flavors)

Costco for macadamia nuts and Kona coffee to bring home
