Aloha,

I am a long time resident of Hawaii, having moved here in 1978 from Minnesota. I completed my college at the University of Hawaii where I graduated with a Civil Engineering degree and then went on to work for a couple of large general contractors here. I decided to retire in 2009 and purchased these three vacation rentals. I love providing a great place for guests to stay and to be able to interact with and spread Hawaii's aloha to people from all over the world. We would love to have you as our guests.

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

I found this place by accident when another property fell through, and I'm glad I did! Perfect for solo traveling or a couple, this little condo was in the perfect location for me. Very close to Waikiki Beach and all of the shops, everything is a block or two away and there is always something to see and do. Be sure to hang out at Cuckoo Coconuts tiki bar after 7pm for live music, and fireworks at the beach Friday night. Tom and Kelly were friendly and helpful, and the value of Tom's properties can't be beat.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

The place was conveniently located in Waikiki, being fully aware that Waikiki is a busy place with lots of noise. The description of the condo was accurate and the owner was easy to contact and responded quickly. Here’s my list of pros and cons.

Pros:

-easily walk to great restaurants, shops and beach

-rooms well maintained

-good WiFi

-building/elevator felt secure, neighbors were friendly

-dedicated parking space, included in rental

-chairs, cooler and beach towels were supplied

Cons:

-somewhat noisy (buses, people, and a rooster), a given if staying in Waikiki

-owner has multiple rooms. We had to move from 1 room to another during our stay due to availability. Had to pay for 2 cleaning fees, which was a bummer

-cleaning was not too thorough. (Hair left on bathroom floor, sour smelling shower curtain); the kitchen and main areas were clean

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and a good choice if your desire is to stay in Waikiki.

Owner's Response: Aloha Bridgett and thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay, our central location and everything we have to offer. I do wish you would have taken me up on the 100% cleaning guarantee offer (that was next to your welcome macadamia nut chocolates) and told us about your concern as soon as you noticed it. Our biggest wish is making sure you have a wonderful stay and having that on your mind takes away from it. In fact that is what I also noted in my Welcome Email that gives you lots of suggestions on places to go, things to do and places to eat: " If anything comes up that we need to address for the studio be sure to give us a call. We would rather take care of it right away to make your trip perfect with us, than to have anything linger in your mind. " I do hope you will come back so we are allowed to earn that 5th star! Mahalo, Tom Waikiki Place...the place to be in Waikiki!!

Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in The Beachcomber unit. Location was great, parking and clean. Had everything you could need. Especially appreciated all the tips from Tom, re restaurants, and shuttles to the airport. So easy checking in, and communications from the owners were very good. Would definitely stay again.

Perfect location, suitable for a couple or someone travelling alone, clean, modern & safe

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Hawaii a few times before and this time we were looking for an apartment where we could cook our own meals, that was central & affordable and also provided car parking. This apartment was all that and more, it had been recently refurbished so all finishings were modern and clean, the kitchen contained everything we could want, the internet was fast, the TV huge and there were even beach chairs and towels we could use. Before we even arrived Tom touched base with reminders to ease this process, there was a folder on the table filled with information on different things to do and see and it was broken up into "dining", "hiking", "beaches" etc with corresponding photos and we worked out way through many of the hikes. Once we were settled in we received another email from Tom with even more helpful tips & information, we felt like Tom really cared about our experience, he wanted us to be happy and really enjoy our stay, that we weren't just one of many passing through. Without hesitation we would stay here again or at the very least in another of his properties, they are well run and looked after and in fantastic locations with everything you could want and need. The perfect relaxing finish to the end of a very busy holiday, thank you.

A Great Place and Location in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family rented this property for our spring break. The location is great with free parking and internet. Very cozy inside, very clean, and walking distance to the Waikiki beach. Tom was very helpful in recommending places to go and activities to do. I would highly reccommend this property.
