Wendy purchased this apartment in 2011
We bought this condo because we loved it's location. It's so close to everything, including the Ala Wai Canal and the beach. I love walking across the street to go grocery shopping, or to the Farmer's Market. If I want to go shopping at Ala Moana Mall, I walk half a block to the bus stop and hop on a bus. It's so convenient.
This condo has an amazing cross breeze with a peek-a-boo view of the mountains from the front door. I love sitting on the sofa and looking at the mountains.
What a lovely little studio! The unit is exactly as it appears in pictures and immaculately clean. We enjoyed our stay immensely and were even able to bring along our small dog! Your every need is met -- from a full kitchen and refrigerator, washer and dryer to beach chairs, towels and boogie boards! Wendy and Joe are warm and friendly and made our stay very comfortable. We were able to easily walk to all the Waikiki beaches, shopping and restaurants. We started our morning workouts with a run along the Ala Wai canal and ended with an ocean swim. Then we'd walk home to clean up and go out for the day. We were sad to leave and will always have fond memories of this little gem at Beach Side!
Joe and Wendy are excellent hosts and anticipate and respond quickly to any and all perceived situations.
The property could not be more conveniently located with stores, bus lines, Waikiki Beach, Ala Wai golf course, entertainment options, dining(inexpensive and expensive to suit your taste) literally only minutes or steps away.
I plan to return and will recommend to all friends and family.
My only concern is that too many people will make reservations and restrict my future ability to enjoy Wendy and Joe's hospitality and Aloha.
It's the small touches that make this cozy, homey studio so magnificent. The luxury hotel style bed, the soft towels, the warming candle, the top-quality Tommy Bahama beach chairs (we are going to buy ourselves a set!), the just-right water pressure (I'm a shower snob), extremely clean, the thoughtful snacks, tea and coffee waiting for us when we arrived, everything we need to cook any normal meal (and more specialty cookware)... I could go on. Most of all I'm extremely impressed with the well-thought out use of space. It may be a studio but we don't feel cramped. It's very breezy; We've only used A/C twice and that's probably because we just moved here from North Carolina fall weather and still adjusting.
We didn't have a car when we first arrived (our car was shipped), but that wasn't a problem since everything is within walking distance or just take the bus (Oahu has one of the best busing systems in the nation). We met Wendy and Joe when we first arrived (they live in the same building which I think says a lot) and it's obvious that making sure their guests are comfortable and have what they need is their priority. They are very kind and it's been our honor and pleasure to stay in this beautiful temporary home as we first arrive on the island.
I am coming toward the end of a seven-month stay in this delightful unit, but wanted to write a review now.
First and foremost, I have to mention the owners, Joe and Wendy, the best of the best. They are super nice, super helpful. They made sure that everything was perfect and had a welcoming basket waiting for me. When I mentioned that the AC didn't seem to be working properly, they checked it, agreed with me and went out and bought and installed a new one. When I mentioned that the vacuum cleaner wasn't working to full capacity, Joe fixed it and brought it back the same day, super service.
They live in the next building so are readily available. About the studio, it is so tastefully appointed and so perfect, I can't say enough - spotlessly clean, delightful, has everything one could possibly want or need. I tried for two months to find something that was missing and couldn't. Not only is everything there, everything is first class, big fluffy designer towels, fully equipped kitchen with designer cookware and accessories, all necessary small appliances and more. The queen bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. The carpetted lanai is lovely with the convenience of a washer/dryer, beautiful patio furniture to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.
Everything is so well thought out. What you see in the photos is exactly what you get, even better. If there are any surprises, it is that it surpasses any expectations that you might have and mine were high. The location is ideal, close to everything, food pantry across the street, Ala Wai canal a block away, bus stop a block away, Waikiki Beach two blocks away. With the unit comes umbrella, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. Like I mentioned before, if has absolutely everything. The location is so convenient that if I were moving here, I would want to rent the condo long term. It is also very nice that both buildings are pet friendly. That was very important to me as I brought my chocolate Labrador retriever with me and it is difficult to find pet friendly buildings in Waikiki.
To sum it up, perfect studio, perfect location, perfect owners, perfect everything.

Wendy and Joe's place is in an ideal location, has all the required kitchen items and an assortment of supplies, beach items, like chairs, beach umbrella, umbrella for the just in case, beach boards, an abundance of towels. A parking spot would help or a location for a short stay parking to pick up supplies. The Bus service and Bus pass are the ideal and a super idea for use around the whole island. Friends visited and they were amazed at the supply available as part of the rental of Wendy and Joe's accommodations compared to what they received as part of their rental. They asked for the contact information! Beachside is a great place and we were made very welcome! We will be back!
Thanks Wendy and Joe.

Located in the heart of Waikiki this place is perfect for any beach vacation. Completely stocked with everything you might need from beach gear too w/d to keep all those towels and suits dry. Short walk to almost everything and if you need public transportation you are right on the bus line. If you prefer cabs there are plenty of hotels in the neighborhood for easy access. Only downside is no onsite parking. If you rent a car you may have to park a few blocks away.
We are located right in the heart of Waikiki, a short walk from the beach, restaurants, and the international marketplace.
