  • Kiwis in Hawaii

    "Amazing apartment, a block from Waikiki beach, beautiful views of the beach from the apartment. Great having a full kitchen, saved a fortune on meals. Pool onsite was great and lots of deck chairs. Plenty of bath and beach towels, so no need to pack them. Loved it, we will definately be back to stay!"

  • 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."

  • Fabulous condo with the Best View and Location in Waikiki!

    "The minute you walk into this spacious open-feeling condo, you see the ocean, the blue skies and Waikiki! From the living room and the lanai there is also a spectacular view of Diamond Head. My husband and I have stayed here for at least 3+ months every winter for the last 3 years and we love this condo and this building! The condo is fully furnished with all amenities in the beautifully remodeled kitchen, bedrooms, & bathrooms. We love the fact that this unit is perfectly situated to take advantage of the tropical cross breezes and that there are ceiling fans in every room. The owners have made it so easy for you to just walk in and feel at home immediately, and make this your perfect vacation or winter get-away in Hawaii! There are plenty of bath towels and beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas. Waikiki Beach is just a short walk from the condo as well as many restaurants, the Ala Moana Shopping Center, and the Ala Wai canal and walking path. Other popular tourist destinations like the Ala Wai public golf course, the Honolulu Museum of Art, Blaisdale Center, Diamond Head beach and trail, Ward Cinemas, and the Kapiolani Community College farmers market are easily accessible by busses, which stop just steps away from the condo. There is also a very conveniently located small grocery market (with deli, sushi bar and Redbox) located just steps away from the building, which makes it totally possible to live here without a car. We also enjoy the walk-to convenience of the small on-site workout room and the swimming pool. The owners has provided us with great customer service whenever we have had a need to contact them. We would definitely recommend this property and would most definitely stay here again!"
