Why S. Licina chose Waikiki
After regularly visiting Honolulu and other Hawaiian destinations for more then a decade, we decided to become part of it and we picked up this building because of it's location. After all all that matters is location, location, location :)

The best part about this place is the owner. He was very responsive to every question we had. He called me when I couldn't figure out how to get in (I missed an email), he notified us when things were happening in the building, and he was quick to respond when I couldn't find something. The location was great. We were walking distance from the Hilton Hawaiian where some friends were staying. There was plenty to eat within walking distance because parking in that area is difficult. The only reason I scored it a 4 instead of a 5 was because the building is very old. And as you enter the bottom floor from the parking area, the smell is very bad on that floor alone. Everyone's trash gets put out down a chute and ends in a room on that floor. There is no air going through that bottom floor so it is musty from the laundry room (but there is another laundry area on the floor of the apartment), The apartment itself is very well kept, well stocked with everything you could possibly expect, and very thorough directions and explanations of where everything is and how to use it. Again, the owner was awesome!
Vacation condo rental in Waikiki.
The condo is lovely, comfortable, very clean and very well supplied with everything needed for a quite pleasant stay.
Convenient and well organized
Great location for getting to sites and beach. Apartment was clean and well organized for guests. Owners responsive when a couple of miner issues came up.
Be aware the location is in a high traffic area. So it can be a bit noisy. Even with that we enjoyed the small balcony quite a bit.
Great Vacation Site
Was a great place for the family and I to stay at while we were vacationing. Walking distance to Ala Moana Center and the beach. Traffic was busy but it didn't bother me that much. I would recommend this place if you were vacationing with the family.
This was a good place to stay on Island. Really close to tons of things and you could walk to a lot. 7-11 nearby to buy any needed snacks/drinks. Had some chairs for the beach. A balcony to have breakfast on.
Homely apartment with everything you require in a superb location.
Before arrival the owner was easily contactable for advice information which remained the case throughout the stay. The apartment is in a nice and secure building, it has full home comforts provided, especially towels and beach towels to save on packing. The kitchen had many items that came in handy like condiments, coffee filters, sauces, detergent and toiletries and toilet paper also stocked so it feels like a hotel these provisions. The kitchen and bathroom were both clean and tidy and had lots of appliances that would cover most everyday needs.
The furnishings are comfy and smart, the AC and ceiling fans were used each night as it is a warm location which kept us cool. We utilised the pool and washer and dryer in the building. The instructions provided by the owners were clear, concise and helpful. We felt reassured that if there had been a problem we could easily contact them via email and knew we would get a response.
A telephone is provided for local and US calls so ordering pizza and taxis for us non US visitors was really appreciated.
There are a few useful items for families using the beach such as chairs, floats etc, we didn’t use these but found it a nice touch.
We had advanced information from the owner to say that at night it can be loud outside due to the main road junctions nearby, so we took his advice and closed doors and windows and used the AC and fans and had no problems sleeping, they also provided some ear plugs just in case, it’s this kind of thoughtfulness we appreciated.
It’s located close to the canal (which is a pretty view watching people canoeing in the evening) and close to major bus stops to get you anywhere you need. We found the walk to the beach pleasant taking about 10 mins via canal and harbour or walk to Ala Moana Mall about 15 mins.
In our opinion this property is very well equipped with plenty of comforts, they have thought about the requirements of guests and these extra items provided have made for a welcome stay in a far away home from home.
We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the apartment to anyone considering a holiday in Hawai’i, and having contacted the owners a few times by email as we needed the street address for our ESTA before travelling I always felt confident of a prompt and positive response, which was the case.
Thanks, we really hope that we can return some day.
