Great location, convenient with a lovely view

  • 5 of 5

The condo was lovely. Clean and neat and well laid out. The view from the balcony was beautiful! The bed was comfortable, however the sleeping space for the third person in the room was sub-par. VERY uncomfortable! I'd strongly recommend this unit for two people only due to the comfort level of the couch. Other than that, an absolutely wonderful property, we would definitely come again if it were just going to be the 2 of us.

Owner's Response: We are happy the guests loved the condo. Regarding the 3rd person, I think this guest was uncomfortable in the sleep sofa because after they checked out we discovered it was broken. We apologize to them. They must not have known that it had broken it but it would not fold down properly thus the uncomfortableness. We have replaced the sofa with a new one.

Nicely decorated and clean condo with a great view of the ocean

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this condo January - February 2017. It's well located, close to the beach and shopping. We also enjoyed watching the weekly Friday night fireworks from our lanai. Doug was very accommodating and very friendly to deal with. We would definitely consider booking this condo for our next Hawaiian vacation. D & J Elash, Saskatoon Canada.

This cosy condo was our home for 2.5 mos

  • 4 of 5

This apt is in process of being upgraded, so when the air conditioner, garborator and neon lights in bathroom quit Doug responded promptly and solutions found. He was always helpful and pleasant. He accommodated our request for shorter chairs as dinning and lanai chairs are height of bar stools.

This apt is perfect for a couple with or without a child, but small for three adults if staying longer periods of time. The sofa couch is comfortable for third person but storage limited.

We had a wonderful time during our stay and want to thank Doug and his wife.

Everything you could want in an ocean view condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family of five (2 adults and 3 children) stayed in the condo from September 30th to October 11th, 2015.

Great communication with the owner, Doug. He was prompt in responding to emails and allowed for a late check out time of 3:00 PM as our flight back home was at 10:15 PM. Thank you!

No surprises with the listing description of the property, amenities and location. The location can't be beat! Minutes away from beaches, lagoon and the Ala Moana shopping centre. Steps away from the convenience store ABC and McDonalds for quick small grocery run and take-out. Big big bonus was watching the Hilton Hotel's fireworks show from our lanai on Friday evening at 7:45 PM - spectacular! We saw it twice... The view from the lanai is so relaxing.

Our stay involved hitting one of the many beautiful beaches one day and then visiting a tourist attraction the next day. The drive and visit to the Dole Plantation, the hike up Diamond Head State Monument and snorkel swim in Hanamau Bay are must do's! Just remember to start early to avoid crowds.

There are five quick elevators at the Ilikai Hotel so you are never standing around too long for one.

We look forward to staying in unit 934 again. Thanks Doug!

Excellent condo, great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything went better than planned/expected:

- Booking: easy and straight forward. The owner was prompt in answering all our questions and accommodate our requests.

- Location: one of the best in Waikiki, direct access to the beach and amazing and stunning ocean and fireworks views from the balcony.

- Arrival: Doug (the owner) accommodated our late arrival time even after a 2 hour plane delay. He was very hospitable and understanding.

- Stay: the condo has everything you want and Doug was very accommodating of our requests and family situation.

- Check out: Thank you Doug for accommodating us in our check out situation.

In general, it was a perfect fit that made our first visit to Waikiki a very nice one. The owner was GREAT. He treated us as family. I felt very welcome. It makes a big different to deal with such a very nice and understating person. THANK YOU Doug. We'll definitely come back.
