  • Here we are--AGAIN!

    "As soon as I decided to bring my husband to Waikiki for his birthday I checked to see if the 'Ikena Nui" was available. When the answer was "yes", I just knew we would have another perfect stay. The studio is well stocked and everything is neat and tidy. This was our first Waikiki visit where it RAINED very heavily for 2 days. No problem--there was a nice big umbrella hanging in the closet. When it was warm and sunny we grabbed the beach chairs and beach towels and spent time on the beach. The shower right inside the security gate is great. No need to take the beach sand into the elevator or apartment. Yes, the view is awesome and so nice for breakfast on the lanai and the Friday night fireworks. Love the keyless entry system and having a safe in the unit. We'll be back for our 50th anniversary. The first thing I'll do is see if #1404 is available."

  • Great place, views, location

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The pictures are great, but they do not do this condo justice. We were pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness, amenities, 360 degree views and cleanliness. Not to mention fabulous location to everything in and near Ala Moana."

  • 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."
