Clean & well stocked
It was a great place for the $$ - 1/2 block from a great neighbourhood. Pool was lovely. Unit had all you need - well stocked. WIFI was good ! Air con was a bit lacking and sliding door did not close tightly. Didn't spend a lot of time in the unit so it fit the bill for us.
Great location close to beaches shopping and public transport
This is a nice little room to stay in and is in a good location for exploring Waikiki. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment was clean. There is plenty of space for clothes etc and lots of cleaning equipment. The kitchen is well equipped and wifi is included and works well. However, the kitchen has a hob only and no oven. It has a microwave.
The bathroom has a nice shower with decent water pressure and storage space for toiletries etc.. Towels were included and access to the laundry is available for $1.25 in quarters for the washer and the same for the dryer. It is open from 9am until 10pm daily.
The balcony has no view except of the next door building and does not get much sun. The air conditioner (which isn't that great) leaks water onto the balcony so you don't really want to spend much time out there but the beach is so close by that you don't really need to.There is a table and chairs out there and you can dry costumes and towels out there.
Accesss to the hotel pool is included. The pool area is lovely and includes a hot tub. However,it does not get sun on it until about midday and not for very long.
Overall I'd say that for the price it is a good place to stay and we found it nice and quiet and it has a good smart TV for entertainment whilst you're indoors. We stayed for 2 weeks and would have been happy to stay there longer.
Even though you are not part of the hotel, the staff were very friendly and helpful. We arrived late in the day and the hosts ensured immediate access to the property.
Our stay in a private room at the acqua bamboo was awful! We were treated terribly by hotel staff
Property was dirty, blind broken,had a piece of glass on the floor which my daughter stepped on. Couldnt get bedside lamp to work, had to ask owner for clean bedding and towels. You would think this would have been a service provided if staying over a week in an accomodation. Room was small! Airconditioner worked on and off & leaked all over balcony. Our clothes hanging to dry were wet from the room up above.whos Airconditioner leaked. It was noivy every morning as our room was next to housekeeping. Street notice woke us every morning at 5am.We shortened our stay and moved as this was not what we expected from our family holiday which we haven’t hqd for over 4 years!! Very disappointed! When we went to the pool on the Thursday night to participate in Lay making for the kids we weren’t allowed to participate as we were private guests. We honestly felt quite humiliated by the experience. I wish we could get at least a small reimbursement for the last 2 nights which we had paid for but didn’t stay based on the way we were treated. Definitely not as guests!!! Found the owners polite but had to call more than once as emails were not returned. Am sorry but coul not recommend this property at all. Monica & Elvis.
The property manager was very helpful. Clean, bed was soft and nice to have a kitchen in case we wanted to cook. Walking distance to the beach, restaurant, shops....We were very happy with the location. I recommend this vacation rental.
Exactly what I was expecting
Overall this was exactly what I was expecting. Nothing fancy. Pool was nice. They were great to deal with. Very accommodating.
Location location location! And a great Pool.
Vicky was there to meet us in the lobby even at 8pm when we arrived. The room was as advertised. Beds were a touch small but worked by sleeping one adult and child per bed. The pool area is really nice and well maintained. There are plenty of reclining loungers, tables, a really cool hut and two cabanas. The pool was almost never busy. There is a great Korean bbq joint around the corner, a poke shop, and you are two short blocks to the beach. I would skip the rental car and just walk everywhere. If you want to get out on a drive rent a scooter, motorcycle or high end convertible from a company behind the pacific monarch hotel next door. When we return to Waikiki this will be our base camp. Thank you to the owners Vicky and Tony for the great hospitality and working with our awkward travel schedule.
