About Renata

We have been coming to Waikiki for 17 years and felt it was time to invest in this beautiful building after staying here for several years. We love to travel the world, but keep coming back to Waikiki because it has everything we want on our vacations. This is our opportunity to help people discover everything the island has to offer starting with our condo unit.

Renata purchased this studio in 2014

Very Convenient Waikiki Location

  • 5 of 5

The entire rental process was easy and accommodating. The condo is conveniently located in the center of Waikiki, within walking distance to beach, restaurants, and activities and had a great view of the Ala Wai Canal, the city and the beach. The accommodations were very clean, new and well-appointed. The absolute best we observed in the building! You can't beat the price for the value. The AC worked wonderfully as did all appliances and plumbing. We had a rental car so covered/secure parking within the building was appreciated and we used the pool daily AND the the laundry on the 6th was handy. The most telling thing we can share is that we'd stay here again and not look elsewhere. We were VERY happy that WE had THIS condo and not any other.

Nice Location, Comfortable Condo

  • 4 of 5

Family of 4 (kids ages 9 and 13) stayed here from July 17 - 22. Renata was great. She answered all of our questions and was able to let us do a late check out for a fee so we could freshen up after a day of exploring the island before our red eye flight. The location of the condo was great for us- just a few blocks from the beach. Is was nice to be on the quieter canal side. The view from the lanai was spectacular. The condo was clean and had a lot of storage space. The kitchen came in very handy and we used the toaster and stove. The beach equipment including beach towels, an inner tube and boogie board were a nice plus and we used them while we were there. The condo pool was also very nice. One other piece of advice - watch the balcony lock. I went out on it when my husband and kids were still at the pool and when I closed the sliding door, the lock automatically clicked down and locked me out. Luckily I had my phone and my husband came and let me back in. Other than that, it was a great stay. We would definitely recommend.

Amazing rental unit & owners!!

  • 5 of 5

This bar none was one of the best stays ever. What they advertise ... what you see is what you get~ 100%. We had friends stop by and they wished they were staying there too! All the little sticky reminders were so helpful for a tropical environment and a mutual concern for respect. The kitchen area was stocked for our requirement needs. We saved on most breakfasts and lunches. A local Hawaiian told us about Don Quiote grocery plus, 30 min walk over the canal. The bus system is so easy. We rented the bike share for 30 mins; easy, fun & safe! Uber drivers were a delight to hire, over taxi. From the airport, walk to the postal office nearby and then call Uber from there, so as not to get dinged on the fare. Fire works, right from our unit lanai. Pool, bbq area had plenty of space in all aspects and the beach extras came in handy too. ABC has cheap round float tubes for $3-5 usd and tons of travelers do the 'pay it forward' when they leave.

Renata you delivered in every way possible, to make our 1st time holiday on Oahu wonderful!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Unit 2910 at the Island Colony! The Unit was very clean, comfortable, nicely appointed and well stocked with all the essentials you will need. The Unit is on a high floor so you get amazing views.

Additionally, the Island Colony is well situated – close to the beach, restaurants and shopping.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this vacation rental!

Beautiful and clean condo with great ammenities.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was super clean and very well stocked with everything needed for a great holiday. Excellent location with great amenities just minutes from the beach. The International Marketplace has been rebuilt, so there are many new stores and restaurants a half block from the condo. Highly recommend this property. The owners are always accessible and really easy to deal with as well.
