Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak highly enough of this accommodation! The ease, comfort, cleanliness, style and personal touches included in this property contributed greatly to us having such a fantastic time away. There was no need to hire a car as the location was within easy walking distance from major centres and public transport. Janna was so helpful in answering our questions and gave us fantastic ideas and tips about places to visit and things to do throughout our stay. I certainly hope that we will be back in the future!!

Mahalo for our home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

Convenient location. View is of parking lot. ABC Store across the street. Bus stop around the corner. Easily cut thru Honolulu Modern Hotel to get onto overpass to lagoon. Quiet & clean building. Suite is sufficient for small family or 2 adults. Could feel cramped if more than 2 adults. TV has limited channels. There is iPod dock & USB ports on one outlet. Kitchen well equipped with dish soap, dishwashing detergent, paper towels & garbage bags. Bring/buy your own cooking basics like oil, salt, pepper, etc. Some snorkeling gear and small board in closet for playing in water. Good size closet and chest of drawers for clothes. Bathroom good size. Tub is shallow. Shower head has very strong spray & bit low if you are tall. Laundry on 8th floor: $2.75 for each washer & each dryer. Only accepts quarters. We didn't use the pool pass at Ilikai Hotel, because it was closed for maintenance. Pool deck area in direct sun with no umbrellas to offer shade, so we opted for the lagoon instead with some trees & grassy areas. Janna was great answering questions promptly. Getting access to the suite was simple as well. We would definitely consider this property on our next visit. Mahalo!

Nice Location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stay here for 4 nights and enjoyed the space and location. It was a bit older than I expected from the photos especially the kitchen area. Had some problems with the thermostat and could not get it to work correctly and some instructions would have been helpful for that and the TV. The location is very nice close to the harbor and the Modern and Hilton Lagoon. Communication was very good and we appreciated the tips on things to do in the area.

Suitable Accomodations

  • 3 of 5

The location was great! Nice short walk to the beach, and while we were there, Hawaii Five 0 was being filmed, right between our condo and the Modern Hotel! Short walk to terrific amenities: ABC store across the street, complete with groceries, souvenirs and beverages, Foodland (1/2 km away), shopping malls, war museum, Ala Moana Park and much more.

The condo was well equipped with cooking accessories, beach chairs, snorkelling equipment, beach towels, etc. Laundry facilities on the 8th floor were great; however, it takes $2.25 per load in quarters, the same price as the dryers. The owner provided a great list of sight-seeing suggestions, along with restaurant options!

There is a very inexpensive little bar in the basement of the Ilikai Marina where there is affordable food and drinks.

The residents of the building were very nice and helpful.

The downside was the lack of a standard size balcony and no ocean view. The lanai was very small, inhabited by three potted, decorative plants with nowhere to put a couple chairs. The patio door was also very heavy to open. The Murphy bed was not very comfortable. It's probably time to invest in a new mattress. The noise at night, being on the street side, was very loud at times.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Charlene, so happy you enjoyed your selection of one of our luxury condos from "You Found Paradise". Please note the mattress on the bed is 6 months new that came at a cost of just under two thousand dollars. I only buy the best! As picture in the advertisement I've made it very clear, this condo has a city and skyline view! The location is in an ocean front building, being on the city side which is reflected in the rate. I do have 3 ocean view luxury condo that are available at double the cost of this studio, perhaps next visit. The size of the lanai is small and since there are floor to ceiling glass sliders to enjoy the view in air conditioning, I've provide comfy sofa and chairs. Noise, I've stayed in this condo many times in high season and I've not had an issue with noise, nor do prior guest reviews reflect any excessive sound. We are looking forward to your return one day soon. We appreciate you!

Concerns and Disappointments

  • 2 of 5

Our initial contact and communication with Janna was very good, she provided us with her hit list of options for making our stay as rewarding as possible while in Honolulu and provided us with options for getting to and from the air port, things to do and see. Welcoming chocolates in wine glasses by the couch, nice touch, clean linens and towels, very clean operable fridge and ample supply of toiletries.Their motto is "You have found paradise", well that changed after we were able to settle in after a couple of hours. I am not sure when the owners last visited this unit or when it was last renovated but, in my opinion it is in need of a complete renovation again. I realize we had the opportunity to contact the owner with any concerns we had with this unit but, again in my opinion too many to deal with during our stay. Pest control and two false fire alarms left us a little uncertain about safety. Advertising on vrbo states ocean front condo with city view when it is the building that is ocean front, not the condo, I think a little misleading. The oven was missing a dial and the inside of the door seal was hanging loose, the stove had a dial that didn't work, the flooring was bulging in places either from being wet or installed incorrectly, the microwave vent cover fell out a couple of times and was very dirty on the inside. After the second time I put it in the broom closet and replaced it upon leaving. Closet door hanging very loose and about to fall off. Needless to say we would not recommend this unit to anyone.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for mentioning the 5 star touches that greeted you upon your arrival, chocolates, wine glasses, toiletries, which I believe shows our guests we care and want to make their stay a fabulous experience. So unfortunate this guest did not reach out to me over any of these concerns which they mentioned. However I did receive communication about where is the ocean view along with stating I had mislead them and falsely advertised the condo, which I believe caused them to write such a negative review! This condo is located in an ocean front building facing the mountain and city skyline. I pointed out to this guest the advertisement clearly states and shows with the pictures city skyline views (which are gorgeous). I believe this guest did not fully read or realize the view hence there disappointment. The items mentioned I will take as constructive information but fully expressed by their disappointment in the unexpected view. Please read prior and post reviews to get an accurate description of this condo. I have 7 luxury condos and half of them face the ocean, which come with a higher price point. I'm very proud of our condos and our ability to offering luxury condos at affordable prices. Future guests of this sold out condo, we will welcome you in the with the highest standards!

Things to do, to the left a 2 minute walk is the Hilton Hawaiian Village and lagoon where 'Baywatch' was filmed. The Hilton provides fabulous Friday night fireworks with a free Hula show every week! As you pass the Hilton you'll find Fort DeRussy, then the historic Royal Hawaiian Hotel, where you can relax with a cool drink and listen to traditional Hawaiian music. After this walk if your feet are to tired to travel, hop on the open air 'Wiki Wiki Bus' and it will take you to all the hot spots. Next day go the other direction walk to your right and in 5 minutes, you'll arrive at Ala Moana Beach Park, Magic Island, jog or tennis anyone? Across from the park is the World-renowned Ala Moana Shopping Center, with the nations largest Nordstrom's to shop till you drop. But of course, Waikiki is a world class destination for fine dining and night life, it doesn't get any better than this to make memories!
