First let me start by saying this building is in a wonderful spot and the amenities are excellent. This condo is on the 8th floor but in reality is only about 4 floors above ground level, due to the way it is designed. It's at tree top just to let other renters know. We were very happy with the abundant kitchen amenities such as pots/pans/small appliances/cutlery & utensils. This condo has numerous spices which help with fixing your own meals. Huge tv is a welcome plus. 2 bedrooms with king/queen beds is wonderful with a pull out in living room. Lots of room for a large family. Also many beach towels, chairs, and floaties for your beach days. Parking is actually only 1 spot because owner parks in 2nd spot. It's in a perfect place by the elevator with no one beside you. 2 bathrooms also help with a family along with a washer/dryer in the unit.
The negatives: linens for the beds need to be replaced as they are old/well used and full of balls or pills. I purchased my own 1 set and took home. This unit would be a lot better if the cleaning standards improved. Kitchen lacked attention with streaks and stove grime/ dishes could have been better washed than they were. Dishwasher needs attention. AC unit/thermostat in Master needs attention. Venting needs cleaning/had musty smell on and off. Floors made our feet very dirty so needed to clean floors myself. This unit is also shared with the owner, so be prepared to have owners items throughout the condo, along with fridge/freezer space taken up by owners things. We were there 1 whole month and for the whole time were killing weevils that were in the rice bag in the cupboard, which I threw out. More attention needs to be paid to keeping pests at bay. Although not a major concern to people, they were definitely an annoyance. This condo is a fair distance from the hustle and bustle of Kalakaua Ave so be prepared to do a lot of walking, but this building is worth the walk as we have stayed in this building before and enjoyed its many attributes.
So, if these few issues are attended to, this condo would have gotten a 4.5 stars. Attention to detail makes all the difference.
Thank you for your kind words regarding our condo and resort. We have a beautiful two-bedroom unit with a fabulous view off the master bedroom balcony. Our resort offers a state-of-the-art fitness center and business center accompanied by rooftop swimming pools and a jacuzzi. Along with a barbecue grill complemented by a beautiful outdoor dining area and shaded structures. We agree that our condo is spacious enough for a small family but we find most of our guests prefer to enjoy our condo and the luxury of a unique layout with a modern and warming decor for a two-guest getaway vacation. Our guests typically provide our condo unit with a five-star review and we are sad that you did not attempt to contact us during your month-long stay so we could address your few items of concern. Our unit is professionally cleaned on a monthly basis and before each new guest arrives by a highly trained staff. Our on-island staff would have been more than happy to return to clean the items mentioned to your satisfaction. The entire resort is treated monthly to prevent our unwelcome little friends as we do live in a tropical setting. Again we wish you would have reached out to us so we could have advised you to empty the kitchen wastebasket daily or close the plastic liner tightly to prevent this infrequent occurrence. We have a three-zoned air conditioning system with three individual thermostats so our guests can control each area of our condo separately. With this extra feature, we recommend our guests use the thermostats in the manual position in place of the programmable option as each guest may have specific preferences. However, our guests are welcome to set the thermostat on a programmed schedule if desired, this can be a little tricky and we encourage guests to control the units in a manual mode. Our resort is close to many fabulous and must-see island attractions and events. As a return guest to our resort, we were surprised to hear you had a concern with the central location. Our beautiful beaches and parks are only a ten-minute walk and the canal is just outside our resort. On days away from the beach and island you will find there is a wonderful walk or jog along the canal. This canal has a special and iconic view of the famous Diamond Head Volcano directly in sight as you enjoy your stroll. We can guarantee, should you return for a third or fourth visit you will be treated with nothing but first-class service as we do with all our guests. Mahalo and best wishes!
I and my fiance stayed here for several weeks through December '21 and January '22. It was a very spacious and comfortable home away from home.
In terms of the building, it was a mature, quiet residential space (i.e. great if you want a quiet family stay, not a busy resort). Building staff were all helpful and courteous. The building itself has the largest residential pool in Waikiki (so I read) along with hot tub; throughout our stay it was generally never too busy which made for relaxing use. There's also an area on the pool deck with outdoor grills which could be reserved, but we did not use these.
The apartment was very comfortable, particular mention for the 85" TV which added a new dimension to Netflix.....nicely equipped kitchen (with washer/dryer tucked away in a cupboard), comfortable bedrooms and a nice chaise sofa with pullout sofa bed so everyone can put their feet up.
I'll keep it short - it was a really comfortable place to stay if you're looking for somewhere that's more home than hotel, but with some added resort facilities by way of the pool and a gym which is free to residents. Being on the edge of Waikiki it's nicely away from the thickest tourist crowds but easy walking distance to them, and also to Ala Moana Center (the largest mall in the state). The owner was also very responsive to questions although for the most part after arriving we didn't have many of those!
