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.

Lovely Studio Condo with beautiful views of the Canal, Ocean & Mountains - great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this clean and tidy studio Condo. It has everything you need to cook meals with lots of drawer and cupboard space and lots of soft towels The lanai was spacious with beautiful views of the Canal, Ocean and Mountains along with a big table, four chairs and a bonus rocking chair with ottoman. There are also beach chairs, an umbrella and little cart available to use - came in very handy for our outings to the beach. We always felt at home at our home away from home!!! This condo has a great location which is steps away from the bus stop, restaurants, the International Market Place and the beach is only a few blocks away. We really enjoyed our time on the lanai and the fireworks every Friday night. The Island Colony is a very secure and well kept property with a huge outdoor area on the 6th floor which includes barbecues, big heated pool, hot tub, sauna and fitness room. The 6th floor also has a laundry room, convenience store and ice machine. Renata, the owner is very personable and is only an email away to answer and deal with any questions or problems that may arise. To be able to use the telephone to make local and long distance calls was a great bonus. It was wonderful to return to Oahu again after many years. There is so much to see and do here and the bus and trolley service is amazing and can take you all over the island. We love Oahu and plan to stay here again and again. We are already booked to return next year and the year after that.

Thank you Renata for helping to make our stay in Oahu so memorable and we so look forward to returning again and again!!! We would highly recommend booking this property.

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

You walk in and you're home. Everything you need is there, clean and tidy, ready for you.

Then you see the view, that lanai with the wonderful rocker started and ended my day. I was there on my own and there is so much to do. I picked up a couple of the guides from one of the many street corner locations and planned my trip. There is enough to fill a week or more that is totally free. The Friday night fireworks is free from your private lanai. The location is perfect, you can simply wander Waikiki or walk with purpose to the mall, Leonard's Portuguese donuts or to Diamond head to walk off the previous. The bus is everywhere too for when you're totally done. See you next year, for another fabulous holiday!

Excllent in every way.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to rent a condo and I am so pleased that I booked again for next year. Island Colony is secure and located within walking distance to the beach, restaurants,grocery stores, and shopping. The walk way along the canal is good for exercise and leads to the golf course. The condo itself was immaculately clean and well stocked. Renata had the touch of home. Cleaning supplies and tools made keeping the condo clean. Absolutely no bugs. I did not leave any food out. So appreciated being able to phone Canada and the USA. So thoughtful to leave a guest card for the laundry. Lots of closet and drawer space. Towels and bed linens of good quality. Literally just needed to bring your own clothes and everything else was supplied. Even beach chairs and toys for children. Renata is very easy to work with. Great experience.
