The far end of the beach has great safe swimming for children due to the concrete break water. The life guards are positioned closely and seemed very diligent. The homeless people sleep on the beach at night and I found this quite unnerving. But I really do have to say that they were no issue at all. Courteous and leave... More

We stayed in Waikiki Shore for 14 days, in apartment # 1116. I have nothing but good things to say. The apartment was beautiful. It was clean, well-decorated, and equipped with anything you may need, including a washer, dryer, dishwasher, towels, beach equipment, blankets, sheets, extra pillows, an air mattress, a sofa bed, detergent, soaps, shampoo, conditioner, WiFi, AC...

Stayed 9 nights in Waikiki Shores Apt #1302 booked through Captain Cook Travel. What can I say. The condo was amazing. Out of the 100,000 odd hotel rooms in Waikiki, this place would be in the top 50 for best panoramic views of beach and city combined. The condo was large and fully stocked with everything you require. The beds... More

A condo-right on Waikiki beach? Complete with kitchen and washer/dryer. Every room has a lani over looking the beautiful Waikiki beach and Fort Derussy's museum,lawn and palm trees. Even Trumps new hotel is behind this condo. Only 2 blocks off of best shopping in Waikiki and you couldn't get any closer to staying at the beach- we could hear the... More

Location... Wow. Right on the beach at Waikiki doesn't get much better. Surf and stand up paddle boards available out the front and racks available if you hire a board elsewhere. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only downside was that the bed was quite uncomfortable - it was two beds put together to make a... More

This is a great spot for a fully equipped kitchen location. It is right on the beach with fantastic views. The negative (which you put up with given location) is the poor customer service you receive. Almost appears they know they are in a great location and don't need to acknowledge you (including providing a smile). This is the 2nd... More

Booked apartment 1208 through Captain Cook. Excellent communication throughout. We chose #1208 as it was fully renovated. All necessities were supplied including beach towels and toys, bath towels and all kitchen ware. You will need to buy groceries but there are many (expensive) ABC stores right across the road. Free allocated parking is also included. Friday and Saturday night were... More

View/Location = 10Stars!!!! I researched a ton of places on Waikiki for our family vacation and chose to book Waikiki Shore Condo 1010 via the Captain Cook reservation system. We're a family of 3 (mom, dad and 9 year old daughter) and we stayed 3 nights before heading to the Big Island for a week. Master/King bed was great -... More
