My place is close to Waikiki Beach and overlooks Kapiolani park with awesome views of Diamond Head. There's local art every Sunday on the Art wall of the Zoo, Hulas bar and Lei stand is located witin the building.

We are close to all the great shopping, island transport routes, surfing, great food, and nightclubs.

You’ll love my place because of the people, the local ambiance, the neighborhood, and most importantly the location!

There's a great burger place downstairs too, along with a nail salon in case you feel like pampering yourself with a Mani / Pedi after hiking Diamond Head crater (or lazying around on the golden sands of Waikiki Beach.

Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is perfect for a vacation in Waikiki. Close to all that Waiiki has to offer, as well as stunning views of the ocean and Diamond head. A walk across the street, and you are taking an early morning swim in the beautiful Pacific. Another view from the condo that was special was the tree tops, covering Kapiolani Park, and the Honolulu Zoo. This was a location I will visit again!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay, but the parking set up needs to be more transparent. From the listing you can't tell that the parking is not included; therefore, I would encourage the property owner to phrase it differently on the description section. Cute, great location and very safe!

Great Location

  • 2 of 5

I booked this property due to location and the particular unit for the view and was not disappointed. As stated in previous reviews, the building is old and needs a "make-over"

and the unit needs a new bed, REALLY !

Unbeatable Views and a Comfortable Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Have visited Honolulu many times, and this condo was among the best places I have ever stayed. The location is hard to beat... at the far end of Waikiki, it's quieter - except for the exotic noises of the animals across the street at the Zoo. Very cool! The unit looks directly out at Diamond Head, and from the balcony you have a beach and water view.

Hotel staff at the Waikiki Grand were sweet and helpful. I recommend paying for parking at the hotel at $18 a night... you have in/out privileges and zero hassle trying to deal with parking in Honolulu.

All in all, a great stay and a good choice for singles or couples who just want a comfortable base for exploring Oahu.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review, Matthew D. -- The property is, indeed, centrally located to everything you could want or need access to in Waikiki and we are happy to hear that you reaped the benefits of this during your "short stay" :-) You are always welcome back, and hopefully you get to enjoy a longer visit the next time you're in Hawaii.

Location was fantastic. Close walk to beach & zoo. Arrange parking in advance. Bed awful. Too soft.

  • 3 of 5

The owner must replace mattress. It has no support. The prime reason for people to book a room is so that they will have a safe, comfortable place to sleep.

Should inform guests of parking options in advance. We were lucky enough to purchase pass from front desk but they are limited.

Very central location. Walking distance to Waikiki Beach, restaurants and shops.

Unit small but functional.

Champagne views on a beer budget

  • 4 of 5

Great location, away from the crowds! Less than a block from the beach and right across the street from the zoo and park. Easy to get around with the bus and a lot of dinning options are within walking distance. The room itself is a bit tired and could use some light maintenance, mostly minor things but has everything you need for convenience. The ABC store on the corner has a decent supply of food and beverage choices, so you don't have to go out all the time if you want to make your own meals. You won't find more bang for your buck anywhere else in Waikiki!
