About Elaine Allison

We love the views from the 34th floor pool - Panoramic views of Waikiki. We saw the Pacific Monarch and fell in love with the quick walk to the beach (yes just about 700 feet) and everything that one needs is within walking distance of all Waikiki has to offer. We've tried to equip the unit with just about everything you would need.

Elaine Allison purchased this condo in 2007

Why Elaine Allison chose Waikiki

Location, ocean views, steps to beach, international market and all Waikiki has to offer. Bus stop is right out front - tour the entire island $2.50. Alamo car rental right behind us, pick up a car at 7:00 a.m. and drop off by 8:00 p.m.

What makes this condo unique

Surfing, snorkeling, swimming, sunsets, fireworks, shopping, best restaurants just outside your doors.... or sneak up to the rooftop pool in the early morning to watch the sunrise or in the evening for spectacular sun rises (or right from your lanai). Hike Diamond Head and 1.5 blocks to the new International Market.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The full sized fridge is a great advantage compared to most studios. The kitchen is comfortably equipped for our family of four. We had breakfast and lunches packed for the beach every day.

Great location! Spacious and well taken care of!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Oahu and it was certainly in part due to this amazing condo. I’ve been to Oahu several times and truly feel this is a perfect location with easy access to the beach and restaurants. The map shows three blocks from the beach and may look like a bit of a walk but honestly it’s only 5 minutes (if that). The condo has everything you need and was very clean and well taken care of. There’s lots of room for two people in this space and the bathroom is a good size as well – very important when you’re a girl with a lot of toiletries! Talking with Elaine was an absolute pleasure and she was so very helpful and responsive. Before we arrived at the location I knew that should we have a problem Elaine would be there to help and that means so much when you’re on vacation! Will definitely recommend this condo to friends and family and would not hesitate to book this location again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your great review. I try to stock and keep things the way we like it too. We love the location - you can't beat it. We've added a new TV stand with lots more storage space as well. Hope to have you back again in the near future. Elaine

Nice studio near Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

The condo unit is nicely furnished and included all the things we needed to eat in the room if we wanted. It's just a couple blocks from Waikiki Beach and right on the bus routes. There's a grocery store, restaurants, and shopping all within blocks. This was our third stay in this unit. We will check the availability on this unit for future visits.

Great location, great owner, couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

Elaine's condo is in the perfect location, only a 2 minute walk to the beach. I just came back from a 10 day vacation with my wife and 2 kids. We fit all four of us very comfortably in the condo. We cooked most of our meals in the unit and the full sized fridge and cook top worked perfectly for our needs. Elaine has the place stocked with everything utensil needed for a family to live there for an extended stay. She was wonderful to deal with, top notch with communication, and everything went off without a hitch. We will definitely be staying again with Elaine.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your great review. We travel with our kids as well, and really enjoy the proximity and the kitchen amenities (saves $$$). The full sized fridge is a bonus for us vs. the typical mini-bar fridges. We look forward to having your family back with us again. Mahalo.

Perfect location! Wonderful owner! Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have found a better place to stay on our vacation to Oahu! Elaine's place is super convenient to everything!! We could easily walk to beaches, enjoy shopping, eating out, renting sporting equipment at the beach literally just down the street, walk to one of many daytime or sunset cruises and so much more. Although we rented a car and chose to pay the fee for parking right at the building (so worth it), we could have easily taken the many nearby buses for our excursions or rented a car for a day or two from the lot just behind the condo building. We could have easily kept ourselves entertained nearby! But it was also an easy drive to other parts of the island. Elaine has the place stocked with everything we needed. We often ate "at home" and weren't in need of any kitchen item at all. Elaine was wonderful to work with and had answers to all my questions. If we are fortunate enough to find ourselves back on the island, I know where we will be staying!!! Thank you for providing a wonderful place for us to enjoy the beauty of Oahu!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great review and loved hearing about your stay. We try to stock everything our family would need and don't eat out too often either (saving $$$). We hope to have you back again soon.

Fantastic location and accommodation. After discovering this gem we won't be staying anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

It's a given that Hawaii is a beautiful place with great weather and lots to do and see in Waikiki. Based on that who wouldn't have a great holiday :) We did have a great holiday for all these reasons. However, our great holiday was not just based on where we were but based on where we stayed. Staying at Elaine's unit made our holiday the best holiday I have ever had. The location is great. Central to everything and very quiet. The Bus is located across the street, stores less than 1/2 a block away and the walk to the beach takes less than 5 minutes. Never have I felt so at home when away on vacation. Lots of storage for clothes with a chest of drawers and large closet full of hangers. Everything you need is here. Beach chairs, beach towels, unbrellas, a cooler, ironing board, iron, cooking utensils, crock pot, coffee maker and even a blender. The layout is fantastic with ample room for up to 4 adults. Gorgeous view of the city lights and ocean from the lanai that stretches the length of the unit. Elaine was beyond excellent to deal with and even shared some tips for things to see and do in Waikiki . My daughter and I felt totally safe and secure here. Absolutely love love this condo. Will definitely return :) Thanks again for everything Elaine Mahalo!!
