Condo had a great location to the beach and Waikiki area. Was a nice place to stay and enjoyed the condo.
Great location, great views! Great place!
Place is very nice and clean! Great kitchenette,and amazing views!
Nice accommodations, spartan but squeaky clean and as described.
This is a very nice, affordable condo. Walking distance to all that is Waikiki. Again, squeaky clean with wonderful views. If you want a five star accomodation this is not it. But, condisering where it is located and how well the unit is managed, thanks to Thon and Kai, it should be considered a nice option. It is a solid three stars but only due to the older furnishings and age of the building. It is exactly as described and the pics are accurate.
Fantastic Views, Congenial Agents
Our original Airbnb booking fell through when the condo was flooded by a guest the day before we arrived, so we had to scramble to find alternative accommodations after we arrived. To make a long story short, the final 5 nights of our stay were uncovered, but we found this Island Colony studio on VRBO that happened to be open, and it proved to be the icing on the cake for our stay in wonderful Hawaii. Kai Ching was as nice and personable as you could ever want in an agent. We had trouble with the Internet connection the day we arrived, so I called Kai, who contacted the provider, whom I later contacted. Nothing seemed to work, but we went out and when we got back all was well and we didn't have any more trouble with it. Kai offered to refund the entire $5/day fee, but I didn't feel right taking it all back, so we compromised on a 1-day refund. The minimum stay is 3 days--we stayed 5--and the daily rate was fairly low compared to other condos we checked. Island Colony is centrally located just one block from buses on Kuhio and 2 blocks from the main attractions on Kalakaua. Walk straight up Seaside 2 blocks to the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center for free hula, ukulele, lomi lomi, lei making, and other classes. The new Nordstrom Rack has great bargains one block away on Kuhio and is beside the rear entrance to the newly refurbished International Marketplace (now very upscale compared to before). Access to Waikiki Beach is also very good. The closest supermarket is Food Pantry 2-3 blocks up Kuhio, and there are many restaurants within walking distance. Island Colony itself has a nice pool with jacuzzi and a convenience store. The condo was roomy, clean, and well equipped (kitchenette, bath, etc.). The lanai (balcony) is as large as a small room, with a see-through partition at the edge making the 3-way view (Ala Wai Canal, golf course, and mountain plus Diamond Head plus ocean) even better. We enjoyed breakfast and several dinners on the lanai. The bed was advertised as queen, but it wasn't as big as our queen at home, so I think it was just a double. But it was quite comfortable. No laundry in the condo, but on the 6th floor you can buy a laundry card for $5 and then put increments of $5 on it. Somewhat annoyingly, one load with the dryer is $2.75, so you have to add $5 more to do a second load! Nevertheless, despite these minor annoyances, this condo was quite a find, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
My wife and I had the good fortune to stay in this unit for the first two weeks of the new year. Unit was spotlessly clean, and was, as shown in the photos. Location was very central. The views fabulous ! Internet reception was excellent and worth the $.Kai and his team were very responsive to any queries we had. We definitely appreciate being let into the condo at midnight, New Year's eve, and arranging for us to have a late checkout as our flight wasn't until 11:00pm. Recommend highly.
Family Vacation in Hawaii
We absolutely had a wonderful time in Hawaii at this place. The rooms were clean and the apt had everything you need to live very comfortably. We were able to use the kitchen to cook our own food. Although, we did go out to eat occasionally, we also cooked at this place which was a very good advantage. I would recommend people that they visit Costco a day after they get to Hawaii and do all your snack/food shopping that will last them for the remainder of their stay. no need to buy a lot, just a few items and your are good. The location of this appt is perfect as it's walking distance to the shopping area and the Waikiki beach which is beautiful. The zoo and the aquarium are also closeby within distance. Despite the amount of people that visit Hawaii, I was amazed that their public restrooms are so clean.. The hospitality of the staff (Kai and his team) was superb. The staff was always there when we needed them and wholeheartedly provided us with extra special care. We didn't miss not being home for two weeks:) We can't thank them enough as they are truly very nice people. May God bless you all
