Recent Waikiki reviews

  • Clean, handy for everything.

    "Booked a week in Waikiki and this was a good deal. Condo was clean and well equipped. Everything worked good. Steven was easy to deal with and Buddi, the local manager, was easy to reach to answer a couple of questions we had. A block to the beach and short walks to most of the good spots to eat and drink. Didn't use the pool or facilities but they looked great and were well used by other guests. The Aston Banyan is an older building and despite some recent renovations (based on previous reviews) it still shows its age. Our unit was clean and well presented. Hallway carpet, doors and paint outside the unit look dated but we didn't spend much time looking at that. Plenty of pillows and blankets and I slept soundly in the bed. Sleeping situation on the sofa bed is another issue purely because there has yet to be sofa bed made that is not creaky and wobbly. As our kids were tired at the end of the day they seem to sleep well. The A/C worked well to cool the place off in the evening for bedtime. It does leave a pool of water on the lanai but it's not a big deal. The fixtures in the bathroom could use a refresher and update. Other than that the place was ideal. One point to make, and Steven was clear about this in our communications with him, this is not part of the Aston resort and you cannot get any service at all from the front desk or staff. We politely enquired about renting a rollaway bed (our kids weren't too excited about sharing the sofa bed at first) and the reaction from the front desk chick was, "Ugh, not from us", and that was the end of it. They seemed quite aloof and reminded me of employees at high end retail chains who think they're something special when they actually just have a job at the mall and make minimum wage. Doesn't take much to be polite but the impression I got was that guests of private owners are held in low regard and they go out of the way to let you know not to expect anything from them.. The convenience store in the lobby is a rip off and charges a high premium for that convenience ($5/gal water). We used it when we ran out of milk or needed some after sun cream but other than that there's an ABC store on about every block (some blocks have 2). Locals told us ABC stands for 'All Blocks Covered'. They had everything we needed and there are supermarkets within a 10 minute walk or you can ride the trolley for $2. All in all a great place to stay. If the bathroom was updated I'd have given it another star."

  • Great location'

    "This is our 3rd time staying at this wonderful condo. The view and the location is great, just a short stroll and you are right on the beach. The condo is great and is very comfortable for two or more families. Although it does need a bit of updating we had a bit of trouble with the plumbing which was rectified. The carpet and lounge could use a clean and bathrooms updating. But the location is perfect. Louise from Sydney Australia."

  • This Suite was Sweet!

    "This 3 bedroom 3 bath Penthouse Unit was awesome. It is centrally located in Waikiki and walkable to everything -- restaurants, shopping and the beach. Each bedroom has its own bathroom which is rare in Waikiki and all bedrooms are spread out around the living room so everyone has privacy. The furniture is exactly as depicted on the site which might appeal to some, but not all, as it is very "royal" but does fit in with the theme for the Royal Gardens. It was clean and comfortable and well appointed. The rental agent, Hazel, was amazing and answered all questions and was quite helpful. Would definitely recommend and stay again!"

  • Mahalo!

    "Thank you very much for providing your condo to travelers such as my wife and I! It felt like home (with little, well received notes about using the condo. For example, I wouldn't have known which channel had the TV guide, but there was a nice little note about it.) Loved that we didn't have to find a couple of beach chairs to rent or towels to use at the beach from some place else, you had that for us. NO obstructed view of Diamond Head so we got to watch the sun rise as we had our coffee on the lanai. Very special to us! Your place was every bit of what I was hoping for, but not expected to get. Really cannot thank you enough! Mahalo!"
