As other reviews have mentioned, the a/c blows directly at the head of the bed. Had to build a chair/pillow fort in order to divert the air.
Only one pillow for two guests. Had to request another. Received a pillow with a set of new pillowcases in packaging. They smelled so bad we had to hand wash them before using.
Several other issues:
-shower doors needed a good scrubbing,
-no drying rack for dishes,
-kitchen sink faucet loose,
-trim around bathroom door comes off when door opened/closed,
-pool area smells like kitchen grease.
On the positive side, the location was excellent. Quick access to nice beach. Close to Diamond Head.
With some maintenance, minor improvements, and change of the a/c situation, could be a much better place. Until then, would not stay again.
Convenient location, great space with all essentials provided
I stayed at the apartment with my 20-month old. It was a great little apartment with an amazing location. It's right across from the zoo, Kapiolani Park and the beach! A short walk down Kapahulu put us at local eateries. We also parked at the hotel- while it's not the cheapest at $17/day, it's convenient and still reasonable. Another option is to park at the zoo which is right across the street at $1/hr.
I especially appreciated how the host greeted us at the lobby to make sure we check in ok. Their office is right in the lobby of the hotel, so it would have been very convenient to contact them if neeeded.
The only complaint I had was having the AC right next to the bed. We ended up opening the window at night instead of having the AC blasting right next to our heads all night.
Great host, awesome place and convenient location. I would def stay here again next time we are back in Oahu.

Great room! Great price!
We stayed here for 5 nights and Mark met us upon arrival to Waikiki Grand and then showed us around the unit. The unit is great, complete with a full kitchen and steps from the beach, and shopping for necessities! We especially enjoyed the massage chair!!!

We enjoyed our recent stay. It was at a quieter end of Waikiki, but close to the action and beach! We had everything we needed in this quaint condo.
