Our home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

The personal touch we received from Claire from our first inquiry to this property, to the detailed rental package, the arrival greeting and personal tour from Claire of our immediate surroundings when we got there, mid week housekeeping and the personal farewell made this trip feel more like staying with family.

Claire takes pride in her property and made sure we enjoyed our stay. The refrigerator is stocked with some essentials before you arrive and basket full of goodies was very much appreciated by all (fruit, cookies, coffee)!

The condo is on the 10th floor and at the end of the hallway. It was magnificently clean and inviting and we felt right at home. The coin-operated laundry room and trash shoot are located right out the door in the hallway and there is no noticeable noise from either of these rooms. Many nights we would prop open the front door of the condo for a breeze and to listen for our wash to be finished.

The property itself is clean and has a friendly staff. We never got to use the pool but did use the on-site gas BBQ (don’t buy charcoal) nor did we use the free internet provided by the hotel as the condo has it’s own and the cable will reach out on to the table on the lanai! The free parking and internet was a GREAT added benefit as I was still working and we were gone everyday in our rental car. Coffee on the lanai in the early mornings watching the sunrise somehow made having to work while I was on vacation not so bad.

The view of sunrises and evening time of Diamond Head from the Lanai were spectacular, the kind that never turn out as good in a photo. The sounds of the Howler monkeys drifting up from the Honolulu Zoo located a block away brought smiles to our boys (age 7 & 9). We even got to hear some of Jimmy Buffet's concert from the Shell. Everything was is within walking distance for our family of 4, Zoo, Aquarium, International Market Place and even a small grocery store. We cooked and ate mostly in the condo. The on-property market place is also a good place to grab items forgotten and at a reasonable price. There is an ABC store located on the same street. Waikiki beach is minutes walking distance and we found ourselves going back and forth throughout the day to grab things we forgot or make sandwiches, charge camera batteries etc it is that close yet it sits far enough back to avoid the noise of the hustle and bustle of the main street.

This was our first trip to Oahu as a family and it won’t be our last and the only place we will be staying is at Clare’s. In writing this review I looked at the pictures of the property again and they are as they appear. Wish I was still there... Mahalo Claire and hope to see you again in 2008! Darlene, Rick and boys

Great Hospitality and Wonderful Location

  • 4 of 5

Clare is a wonderful hostess; she is full of helpful information and has outfitted this condominium with many handy items (beach chairs and towels, hairdryer, kitchen items so that you can really cook, etc.) that are rarely provided in other places that I have stayed. The location is wonderful if you like the convenience of being on Waikiki but plan to explore other parts of the island and want to be close to a "real" grocery store (less than 5 minutes away by car). On occasion, you may have to wait for an elevator. Most of the time, they arrive quickly, but if you have a tight timetable, it is wise to allow yourself some time to wait. This is not a glamorous building but the condominium is well-kept, clean, well-equipped (other than no dishwasher), and a provided our party of 3 a wonderful, relaxing home-base for a great vacation. I would definitely stay here again.

It starts with the view, and just gets better!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful Christmas vacation, thanks to Clare and her lovely unit. The location was ideal - within walking distance to everything in Waikiki, (and a convenient bus stop for other places) but not so close that the noise was an issue. Also, the free parking was such a bonus! I've paid $30/day for parking in the past. Everything we could have needed was there - including a citrus juicer! I need to do a lot of cooking while away from home due to a restrictive diet, and it was a joy to cook here.

Clare is such an incredibly thoughtful host! She communicates clearly from the start with her explanation of the location and amenities so there are no surprises, and comes to replace linens and clean regularly. So much better than a hotel, and the best VRBO I've been in.

We were a party of three - my husband and myself with our 22-year old son. Our older son is an island resident, and lives just a few blocks away. We used Clare's condo as our refuge and rendezvous spot. I unfortunately brought a bad cold with me, and was able to rest very comfortably the first few days while the guys were out surfing , hiking, scuba diving, and doing their other assorted guy stuff. I particularly enjoyed watching the changing view from the lanai at different times of day.

Clare has assembled a binder of useful information for her guests with menus and island highlights, along with local magazines full of current events.

Incredible customer service from a warm host.

Thank you so much Clare -- we'll be back!! It's great to have a home to return to when we visit our son.

ps-- the price is very reasonable!!!

Perfect felt like home!

Clare was so welcoming and very helpful. The condo was lovely and clean and very comfortable. For a family this condo is perfect. The location was close to everything and all the little extras a great bonus. Clare made us feel so special and her knowledge was a great bonus. The price was also very reasonable. Mahalo Clare❤️

Fantastic location &a host. Highly highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you once again for accomdating my family in your outstanding apartment. I highly recommend this apartment to everyone. Clare is an absolute pleasure to deal with & her apartment has everything you could possible need. The apartment is immaculate. This was our second stay & I wouldn't hesitate to book again. My family consisted of 1 adult 4 children (ages 11,10,8 & 3) & we all fitted comfortably. Car parking inclusion was an additional bonus. Only a straight 2min walk (1 block) from Waikiki beach at the quite end of town. Mini-mart in the hotel or 3min drive to Safeway. You just can't go past this apartment.

A great time was had by all...

  • 4 of 5

This unit is well located in Waikiki - small but well appointed and extremely clean. Very convenient to laundry room and trash chute - easy easy!

one of the few that had twin beds so brothers didn't have to share a bed! Reasonably priced.... and Clare is a kind and gracious host.

This is the best area of Waikiki, the perfect location for families. Waikiki Beach is 2 blocks from the condo. The Honolulu Zoo, Kapiolani Park, Waikiki Aquarium, and the popular 'Sunset on the Beach' event are all just a few minutes walking distance. If you don't feel like cooking, there are many casual and fine-dining restaurants in the immediate area. Across the street is the Waikiki Community Center where you can sign up for Hula and Ukulele lessons, and attend Church Service on Sunday. The property is located close to a residential area, so it is relaxing and quiet.
