My husband and I rented unit #806 from Hawaii Condo Rentals and stayed for a week. We booked last minute and on a budget. This was the least expensive rental home we found with a kitchenette and decided to go for it. We had a good experience dealing with the Hawaiian Condo Rental staff and they easily accommodated our late arrival/check in. We liked that parking was included in the rental. The location was fantastic - yes a busy street (mostly pedestrians), but what do you expect in Honolulu/Waikiki! It was about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach and surrounded by shops, restaurants, nightlife etc. I did hear early morning garbage/delivery trucks.We ran the air conditioner at night and blocked out the street noise.
The unit itself was definitely not luxurious and could use some renos and serious cleaning! It was a decent size for the two of us and for the amount we were there it was ok. However, one morning my husband dropped something and went to wipe it and the cloth turned black. Obviously the floors had not been cleaned well, if at all. He saw one cockroach. (And there was signage while we were there indicating that pest control was there on a certain day if required) The bed was old, but comfortable enough. The balcony was small and our view was not great. We had a table and chairs, but no other seating. The closet was full of stuff so we only hung a couple of sweaters. The unit had basic TV but no internet. Also had towels, and very basic dishes. Bring your own shampoo etc.
The lobby of the condo/hotel has been renovated very nicely. We didn't use, or look at the pool. The need for keyfob to use the elevators made me feel this was a secure building.
I probably wouldn't choose this unit/location again renting from Hawaii Condo Rentals, however I'm not turned off of Marine Surf or Hawaii Condo Rentals. Our holiday was great, but next time something a little nicer would be ideal.
