Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

WOULD HIGHLY NOT RECOMMEND- We expected to stay in beautiful cozy apartments and but instead we were met with an extremely hostile and irate owner and less than satisfactory apartments. In the end, after politely calling the owner to ask for toilet paper and being met with an explosive response and an unauthorized and forced entry into our unit while we were still there, we had to call the police in the evacuate with the unit. I've NEVER experienced such a poor place and was highly disappointed by this unit and its owner/ management. Don't believe the kind and encouraging front this place is NO GOOD. Very thankful for the neighbors that heard this event and came over to help afterwards, Airbnb support and the local police.

Me and my love stayed here once we had an accommodation fall through. Nicco ( so sorry if I’m misspelling his name!) was super nice, he upgraded us for free which was wonderful. There was a full size fridge easy access to restaurants and shops, no view of the beach which was perfectly okay with us. There was plenty of clean good smelling towels and the room had a coffee maker, some dishes and was overall wonderful! Now for the not so good part. If you have a kid or infant or pet even. I would recommend against this place only because there was a bar with … LOUD music. Me and my love are heavy sleepers and at the end of the day or if you’re so sunburned you have to nurse it at your hotel, the music ( I thought was a wedding the first night, my brain was like awww cool! Love music) the music and base and the woman singing was belting all the way until 2 am. I thought okay not so bad right? Nope. She did it the next night as well and then the next. Every night it was music so loud that we couldn’t sleep, the music was so loud we couldn’t watch any movie to drown it out or anything. ( yet again a cute perfect place which the owner was super sweet and in a central location) it was honestly just the music. Starting from 3:30 all the way until 2 am. So! If you have kids or a baby, see if you could stay on the other side of the building maybe? Because it was a super cute place, just the music was too much ( yet again not the owners fault he was perfectly lovely). So great place. Just bad music booming until 2 am every night.

Small condo with kitchen. One balcony, not two as stated in the description, city view only. I could feel the bed springs (not very comfy) There is a pool with limited hours only 9 to 5 and only available for lap swimming and by reservation only. Sunbathing Not permitted (covid? Swimming permitted at other hotels I stayed at in Waikiki). No store on premises. Restaurant is seafood not affiliated with the condominiums. $100 cleaning fee but Wash your own dishes and throw away your garbage prior to departure . 'Smart tv not Smart' per owner. You need a Fob for access to entry, elevators and parking so don't lose it.

Great Accommodation for a relaxing get away full kitchen so you can cook meals if you want some units have a dishwasher , laundry on every floor. The units are not serviced but that was not a problem great location and Thomas and Deb really easy to deal with and very reasonable priced. If you are looking for 5 Star this is not for you but if you want good accommodation at a reasonable price consider this place

Visiting Honolulu for the marathon. Rented this studio condo as part of an add-on after reserving the flight. Said it could fit four... it was quite a tight fix but acceptable. The bed seemed to be a double as it was quite small for 2 people. The couch opened up so two additional people could fit. There were adequate kitchen utensils, cups and plates. Also enough blankets, pillows and towels provided. It was all very clean and well kept. Parking was also included in the price. The location was terrific, lots of places to eat and shop right downstairs and in the many blocks around us. It was about 3 blocks to the beach. The only negative was the live bands playing at a bar on the street one over from the hotel. We had a room on the 17th floor in back. The continuous AC blocked most of the music. Would consider staying there again, with fewer people. Was a good value.

Perfect location, and parking included in the cost. That’s what did it for me! But the place was also great in itself. A small condo, bed, kitchenette, lanai, and bath - what else do I need for a few days? Walking distance to the beach and Waikiki, Easy access to get to North Shore, Kailua, Kahala and ... where to next? Easy check-in, clean, and comfortable.

The best part of this condo is its location. About a 5 minute walk to the beach (at the Royal Hawaiian), 30 seconds from an ABC Store, and so many great restaurants within a quick walk. A very safe area. The condo is clean, well stocked and comfortable. Everyone has their own preferences for a bed... but, we found it quite comfortable. Great city view from the balcony. Very secure building. Great basic pool and deck area... quiet. Only one other person there when we were there. And a few times, just us. Dedicated parking is convenient and included. Our host met us at the condo and gave us a run down of everything. Very friendly. The only drawback, which isn’t a dealbreaker, is that the area is noisy in the early morning. Generally, we were awake then anyways.

We ordered through a third-party vacation rental site. The owner of the property was very friendly and helpful. If you're looking to be in the middle of the chaos that is Waikiki/Honolulu through the wee-hours of the night, then this is it. The price was fair for our stay, but this was no "quiet getaway". We had to run the AC fan all night just so that we could deaden the hip-hop DJ at the corner when it was time to get some sleep. And twice every morning all of the dumpsters in the area were slammed around up and down the street directly below our room. and to make it worse, there were un-sealed, wooden louvers instead of window pane for one of the windows, letting in every sound outside. I guess this was to give you the open-air feel? Thankfully, we didn't come to Hawaii to stay in our room, not that anyone really does, but we didn't come to "party" all day and night, either.
