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

Gorgeous ocean and canal views compliment this completely renovated studio condo, which is fully equipped with all the conveniences a person could ask for in a vacation home. It is located two blocks from the beach, beside the Ala Wai Canal and minutes from the most desirable shopping spots, restaurants and bars.

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.

Perfect for two, you can't get much better than this!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this property and have already talked about staying here again next year. It is beautifully renovated and the lanai has a beautiful view of the ala wai canal and the beach. The Island Colony building is wonderful, too. The office staff was very friendly, the pool is beautiful, laundry and general store and cafe were very convenient. We can't decide which was better- the property itself or the location. The location is perfect- close enough to the beach (5 minute walk), yet far enough that you get more of the laid back Aloha experience than you would in a Waikiki hotel. We also enjoyed walking along the Ala Wai Canal and ate at some delicious restaurants that were just steps away from the property. Seriously, if you're thinking of booking this property you can't go wrong.

Renata was so great to work with throughout the process - start to finish. She’s attentive, friendly and handles everything in an efficient manner. Our home away from home is wonderful thanks to her. Thank you!!

Fantastic Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean condo that in the perfect location. This is our second time here and it was equally fantastic. The condo is super well maintain and new items are always being added to keep it fresh. There are so many restaurants and stores within walking distance. The beach is only a few minutes away. Couldn’t asked for a better condo or location. We will definitely be booking again in the near future.

Had a great stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay and the condo was perfect for what we needed. We had a little trouble figuring out where to go to check in, and we were looking for somewhere to keep our luggage as we had hours before needing to go to the airport, but the building was unable to do so. Otherwise the condo was perfect for me and my fiancé, and very central to everything.

Fireworks on the beach every Friday night and I didn't have to leave the/my lanai, got great pictures without the crowd. I love the location, you can walk every where and burn off those calories. So much to do. The condo is clean and tidy with everything you need. The pool is great for laps or just laying out. A gym, laundry and security to answer all your questions, what more do you need - oh yes, free Wi-Fi and calling to Canada and the States too!
