Loved the view from the lanai.

  • 4 of 5

The view was fantastic. We enjoyed sitting on lanai and watching the city lights, ocean, and Diamond Head. Some of the furniture Needed updating however. Most Drawers on the dressers did not work. My husband bought some screws and tried to fix so we could use the drawers. Just a little updating would be so helpful. Overall we enjoyed our stay at this property.

Great value, great view

  • 5 of 5

The view from the lanai in this condo is so worth it. The photos on the VRBO ad don't do it justice - its better than it appears on this site. I think this rental is a great value. I can't imagine a better view for this price. The kitchen is small and basic, but is standard for similar rentals in Waikiki. I was still able to make meals there, so I have no complaints. The management company was very responsive and great at communicating. I would stay at this rental condo in the future.

If you want a place to crash only, this is the place!!

  • 2 of 5

This is an old unit and needs serious cleaning/updating. If you intend to simply sleep and hang on a lanai, then this unit is great but not if you wish to hang out a fair bit. It is ok, just old and needs updating to meet it's rental fee. And how the cleaning fee is what it is I do not know as the condo is small, well worn, and in need of repairs. Felt ripped off re:that fee!!! The tub is old and blemished, bathroom spartan and small, so be sure you like a hostel-like feel to stay here. We did not mind too much as we were not there much and hung out on the lanai, which is spacious, has comfy furniture and has a stellar view. The building is fine, never used the apparently cool pool/hot tub, and having a convenience store on floor 6 was great (needed beer for lanai time!!).

The pre-visit info shared was great, Rick is a great property manager and very responsive. Beware Oahu parking - $30 a night, which meant parking totaled more than the rental car fees!!

My Waikiki Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay in your condominium. The lanai with the great view of Diamond Head was my favorite part. Great location and everything was perfect . Loved being able to have a kitchenette because I enjoyed being able to eat breakfast on the lanai every morning. Thanks for the great communication and quick refund of damage deposit.

never been there

Staying at Ric laporta's the last few years.

  • 4 of 5

The unit is perfectly suited for me. Light breakfasts & lunches and not too many heavy suppers.

I, very much, enjoyed the quiet and very beautiful Lanai views.

It's centrally located to beaches, bus lines, golf course and shopping stores.

Walks along the canal and meeting many friendly people just make for an enjoyable stay in Waikiki.

Holiday stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The view was breathtaking and was the highlight of our stay. Thank you very much for the welcome gift which was really appreciated and came in handy. Rick was very prompt, patient and accommodating with his response to any questions or concerns.

We feel the Condo could use an upgrade such a new bathtub, painting the whole condo especially where the drapery track is - i.e. fill in the holes where the old track was. Modernize the bedding, drapes, shower curtain with more colour, and add some pictures/decorations on the walls. The hot plate burners were rusted which discouraged us from using it. A friend of ours had the same condo on a different floor which was beautifully staged in a colourful Hawaiian theme.

The building is beautifully kept, close to all the conveniences and beach. Our stay in the Condo was very pleasant especially sitting on the beautiful Lanai enjoying the magnificent view of the golf course, diamond head and the Ocean.
