  • Best Location for Kiwi Family

    "Aloha, We are a adult family of four on our third holiday to Ohau and our second stay in one of Gary's apartments. Already planning our return next year, and we know where we will be staying. Great apartments in the best location. Set back from the road so minimal road noise. Within 5 minutes walk to beaches, shops and restaurants. Great parking available for our rental car. Safe and secure anytime day or night. A big thank you to Merry who makes the whole experience of apartment rental so easy and enjoyable. Mahalo"

  • Fantastic Views, Congenial Agents

    "Our original Airbnb booking fell through when the condo was flooded by a guest the day before we arrived, so we had to scramble to find alternative accommodations after we arrived. To make a long story short, the final 5 nights of our stay were uncovered, but we found this Island Colony studio on VRBO that happened to be open, and it proved to be the icing on the cake for our stay in wonderful Hawaii. Kai Ching was as nice and personable as you could ever want in an agent. We had trouble with the Internet connection the day we arrived, so I called Kai, who contacted the provider, whom I later contacted. Nothing seemed to work, but we went out and when we got back all was well and we didn't have any more trouble with it. Kai offered to refund the entire $5/day fee, but I didn't feel right taking it all back, so we compromised on a 1-day refund. The minimum stay is 3 days--we stayed 5--and the daily rate was fairly low compared to other condos we checked. Island Colony is centrally located just one block from buses on Kuhio and 2 blocks from the main attractions on Kalakaua. Walk straight up Seaside 2 blocks to the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center for free hula, ukulele, lomi lomi, lei making, and other classes. The new Nordstrom Rack has great bargains one block away on Kuhio and is beside the rear entrance to the newly refurbished International Marketplace (now very upscale compared to before). Access to Waikiki Beach is also very good. The closest supermarket is Food Pantry 2-3 blocks up Kuhio, and there are many restaurants within walking distance. Island Colony itself has a nice pool with jacuzzi and a convenience store. The condo was roomy, clean, and well equipped (kitchenette, bath, etc.). The lanai (balcony) is as large as a small room, with a see-through partition at the edge making the 3-way view (Ala Wai Canal, golf course, and mountain plus Diamond Head plus ocean) even better. We enjoyed breakfast and several dinners on the lanai. The bed was advertised as queen, but it wasn't as big as our queen at home, so I think it was just a double. But it was quite comfortable. No laundry in the condo, but on the 6th floor you can buy a laundry card for $5 and then put increments of $5 on it. Somewhat annoyingly, one load with the dryer is $2.75, so you have to add $5 more to do a second load! Nevertheless, despite these minor annoyances, this condo was quite a find, and I would highly recommend it to anyone."

  • Beautiful views!

    "The unit was clean, the master bed was comfortable, there was a nice breeze in early morning while having our coffee and tea out on the lanai. Loved watching the boats come into harbor. The fire works on Friday night were phenomenal - had the best view. The living dining room combination is very nice. The lanais were clean and adequately furnished. Everything is conveniently located near this unit. A few items of concern: the master tub drain was very slow to empty (about 1/2 hour) after the first morning shower - I informed the the management office and was told this would be corrected that afternoon. This issue was not addressed until the following day after going back to the office to again inform them of the problem. The living area rug was curled on one end and this produced a tripping hazard. The beds do not have fitted sheets and the the bed had to be remade every morning because the bottom sheet pulled completely out on one side. The WIFI connection did not work on the second day and again it took until the next day to correct this issue even though it was brought to the attention of the management staff. A few of the drinking glasses were not clean and had to be washed before use."
