We used this 1BR/1BA condo as our base camp for 7 days while we stayed in Oahu. We knew this wouldnt be one of those luxurious places so dont expect that when you stay here. We had activities planned throughout the week and we just needed a place to rest our heads at night and shower. The condo had a roomy living room with a full kitchen. It had a range, a full size fridge and plenty of silverware and pots and pans if you wanna cook. We ate out most of the time. The bedroom and living room both had air-con. The bedroom a full size bed and plenty of closet space. The lliving room had a full size sofa. We needed another bed so we asked the manager, Maxine and she provided a twin roll away bed at no extra charge. The kitchen has no dining table but it has a breakfast bar. There is a tv and its in the living room. There is an exterior door in the bedroom that leads to the balcony. There is a full bathroom. Its kinda cramp for my husbands taste by it has a shower, a toilet, and a sink. What else would you need? Theres another balcony in the living room which was facing Ala Moana Blvd and marina. Literallhy 20 steps to ABC Store and McDonalds. Plus everything like restaurants, plazas, beaches is close by within 10 mins. The Ala Moana shopping center and Magic Island is also walking distance from Big Surf. There is also one parking space for each tenant for only $5 day. You can rent it per day or per week, or when days when you only have a (rental) car. They also have a laundry room located downstairs in the parking garage. Overall we had satisfactory and comfortable stay. I would recommend this to anyone whos not looking for a 5 star accomodation but is looking for a budget friendly unit.
We were going to rent a hotel 2 doors down for 200 dollars more with no kitchen, no bedroom, 2 full beds and only a microwave. I thought the Big Surf was a steal!
PS We stayed at Unit 301. The garbage trucks will wake you up early in the morning. We either used it as an alarm clock or just put on our Ipods if we wanted to sleep in. Another plus is Maxine, the manager. Very friendly and accomodating.
