We go to Waikiki every June...same month...same week. The Waikiki Shore is the perfect location to everything and you can't get any closer to the beach! The property itself is a bit rundown and every year one elevator is always broken..never fails...it can be a looong wait at times! Overall if you want an oceanfront unit in the heart of... More

Aloha Thank you for your kind words. We are beachfront and there are none like us - a fully furnished condominium located on the beach. I apologize for the elevators. I believe the Association of owners are planning to install new elevators very soon. Thank you for returning regularly. Mahalo More

This is a really nice place to stay. Down the lift, open the door, step on to sand! I love it! We could watch the Friday night fireworks from our balcony. The bus leaves right outside the door. Very convenient. Condos are well equipped. Washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board all in the bathroom. We had a studio apartment... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay in this condo and highly recommend it! The view from the lanai is outstanding and the location even better......you are literally on Waikiki Beach! It has everything you need for a very pleasant stay. It is no-frills but truly has everything you would need for a very comfortable, affordable visit. Everything is... More

a great self contained unit with fabulous view. Being part of the Outrigger group we were able to use the Outrigger Pool and facilities (beach towels etc). Right on the beach with a park next door - so uninterrupted view. Could not have asked for more - close to everything. The bins and towels were changed daily and every 3rd... More

The 2nd tie I have stayed at the Waikiki Shore Condiminiums. The building is tired but adequate for a holiday. You need to be up at least 11 foors up to get a view right around the shore line. The outlook and views are spectacular. swimming outside the back door of the complex is fab. You walk straight out the... More

Our family of 8 just returned from Oahu. We were in need of 2 two bedroom condo’s to accommodate everyone and of course we wanted a view. Finding a condo with a view in Waikiki is no easy task. After much worry we ended up booking two units at Waikiki Shore through the Outrigger Reef. My worry stemmed from not... More

Security is excellent you need a key fob for the building and the lift. We had no problems with noise and being on the 8th floor we had a wonderful view of the beach. All amenities in the room were great, comfortable beds and the condo was very clean. The thing I didn't like was that the security on the... More

We had unit 1115 which we rented from a private party. I love this building. It's a mid-century apartment building that has been converted into condos and rentals. The security is nice and you have to have a fob to get into the residence property. It is literally on the beach and a rental place with reasonably priced rental beach... More
