There is no pool or parking, but parking is available close by and one of the best swimming beaches is a stone's throw away.

About Mike Rhodes

Aloha, After decades of worldwide travel, I decided that it was time to slow down (a bit :-). Having lived abroad, and liking many places in which to live, I chose Hawaii because I'm American and wanted that things be simple and familiar--while still being different enough to hold my interest. I hope that you, too, find this about Hawaii.

Why Mike Rhodes chose Waikiki

There are only two condominium buildings closer to Waikiki Beach than The Seashore. The buildings lining the beach are all hotels and condotels.

What makes this condo unique

Awesome Ocean/Shore View. Location convenient to everything that Waikiki has to offer.

Wonderful location and view - perfect for our stay

  • 5 of 5

Just as pictured, while square footage is limited, we had everything we needed for our 6 week stay. The location and view are unparalleled and Mike, the landlord, is an excellent, knowledgeable and aloha -filled host! I cooked often, food pantry is nearby (walking) or we took Uber to Safeway for a great grocery trip. ABC is next door for any beach needs and bus stops are a block away - rent your surf board down stairs! Also, farm market is across the street in the Hyatt and on opposite nights, the market is at kings village (5 minute walk). Lastly, you are 90 seconds from world famous Waikiki beach!!!!!!!! Walk Kalakaua for shopping and dining daily and world class people watching:) Mahalo Mike for a wonderful stay and my apologies for taking soooooo long to review your condo.

Small with a Great view!

  • 5 of 5

I don't ever write reviews. I am now because I was extremely pleased with the condo location and the manager of the condo, Mike!

I had the pleasure to be afforded the opportunity to travel to Hawaii for work. I booked this condo (first time using VRBO) because I needed a place to stay for 14 nights at a reasonable rate. My first impression was that the condo was small, but when I walked out on the lanai and was sold. Everything I needed to have a comfortable stay was provided and it was a huge bonus to have such a great view of Waikiki beach when I got home from work. After many long days of work it was great to sit out on the lanai and enjoy a sunset. Mike was great to work with and ensured everything was in order for my stay. I have already decided that I will be returning to Hawaii for a vacation and will be looking for this condo's availability.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to write a review. It was a pleasure having you as a guest, and I'm glad that you were comfortable for your short time of work here in Hawaii. Spaces are a bit tighter in Hawaii compared to many places on the mainland. I've heard many people compare the size/price--more than anywhere else--of accommodation in Waikiki to that of New York City Fortunately, depending on the building's location, you also have the convenience--like NYC--of being able to walk to most anything that you need (as well as a comprehensive public bus system :-). I'm happy that you enjoyed the location and view of the studio condo, and I hope that you're able to return soon. Thanks again

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is really the best place to enjoy holidays. I was here with my son for 3 weeks and if we come back we will go there.

Nous avons passé 3 semaines merveilleuses dans cet appartement idéalement situé, à 2 pas de la plage et du centre de Waikiki. Tout se fait à pied et l'on peut trouver un parking à proximité pour garer son véhicule gratuitement. Le propriétaire Mike est très sympas. Une bonne adresse à retenir

Prime Location...close to everything

  • 5 of 5

I found this place on short notice due to last minute travel arrangements. Mike (the owner) was prompt in responding to all questions and concerns. Very professional! The condo is nice and was perfect for me (single occupant) but would be nice for a couple. It offered a nice view of the beach from the balcony and has all the necessary items available to enjoy a day at the beach. I would highly recommend staying here and if my travel plans bring me back to HI, I would not hesitate to stay here again. Mahalo!

This place EXCEEDED all my expecations and much more. Mike (the owner) was so great at helping me figure everything out for my stay. He was so organized and made everything from, the extra help with shuttle services to having detergent for the laundry available. When you're going to a place for a week its these litle things that really help your stay that much more comfortable.

Very clean, quiet, great view, very close to the beach, close to many different mom and pop food shops (which is my fav when i travel). The apartment is the perfect size and it has EVERYTHING you need.

The main thing i liked is the location. Its on the side of the beach where their isnt a lot of tourist around, it is around resorts but you dont get the tourist feel, you get a good local feel. I really hope i get to stay here again soon.

Nestled between the Waikiki Resort Hotel and the Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa, The Seashore is a 3 minute walk to the beach and very close to everything that Waikiki has to offer. Less than a 5 minute walk: shopping, restaurants, beach, groceries, all bus-lines. Kapiolani Park, offering a vast array of of recreation possibilities (jogging, playing fields, hiking, gardens, the Honolulu Zoo, the Waikiki Shell and aquarium) is just 7 minutes walk.

To say that this is a convenient location is an understatement.
