"Peacock Studio 1003"
01/21/14 Francine I Montreal, Canada
Great place to stay! We stayed from Dec 23 - 28, 2013 at the Peacock Studio apt 1003. The locatiion was perfect. The condo was centered to the beach, shopping center, bus, restaurants and the strip (beach). What can I say the location was perfect. The condo is exactly like the pictures, so no surprises and clean. Since the condo was well located, we were able to do all the sightseeing we wanted. We did not have a chance to meet Tom, but fefore our departure if we needed answeres to our questions, Tom did not hesistate to answer them. If any of our entourage should decide to visite Waikiki, I will recommend this condo. Thank you, Tom and Kelly. Quebec Canada
"Waikiki Ocean View Condos - Unit 1703"
11/17/13 RiverCruiser Victoria
I just spent a week in Waikiki Ocean View Condos unit 1703. The unit is exactly as pictured, the view much better than I anticipated, location is very good, close to shopping, restaurants, buses. Yes, the unit is a little noisy--but you are in the midst of everything, that being said, I slept with the balcony door open every night, so it wasn't that bad. Nick, the owner, is very personable, checking to make sure everything was OK when I got there and even called the last evening to wish me a good trip home. If the opportunity comes again I definitely will stay in one of Nick's units.

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.
"Roach infested condo"
08/16/13 babsdelite Cave Creek, Arizona
By far, the worst trip to Hawaii and it was our honeymoon!. We stayed in #1602 and its an extremely old building that use to be a hotel so the rooms are tiny. It looked great online...the pictures were very well done but after you're in the room with old fashion low ceilings you feel trapped. We could have accepted the room size if it were not for all the ROACHES crawling everywhere..kitchen..bathroom..living in the bottom of the coffee pot!!!! So gross and disgusting. After making coffee and pouring it for my new husband, there was a baby roach floating on top! This is definitely a health issue as well. The bed was horribly uncomfortable and there were stains on the sheets! There was not enough room for luggage...tiny closet. The balcony railing was not to code...the rails were more than 4 inches apart making this very dangerous if anyone had small children. The website also said partial ocean view...joke! You could barely see a sliver at a great distance. The noise levels in the condo with all the traffic, buses and the air conditioning unit were very annoying! I would NOT recommend this condo. Nick Gravino is the owner. GLAD TO BE HOME!
"Best Location #2008"
06/24/13 Fiona H Auckland Region, New Zealand
We stayed for 12 days in May 2013. Wonderful location in the heart of Waikiki. Very well equip condo including beach towels, beach toys, and good range of kitchen utensils. 20th floor gave us unrestricted views across the city with a peep of the sea. 2 mins to Beach, ritzy shopping and great restaurants. While it is noisy I suspect that most of the accom in this area would suffer from that. After one good night sleep it didnt bother us again ... after all you are in the heart of the Waikiki playground. We booked via Captain Cook Resorts - very happy with the service. Building is secure, parking excellent, free Wifi. Highly recommend

I can’t say enough fabulous things about our stay at Marine Surf Waikiki! I was a little apprehensive before we got there – having booked this online and sight unseen – but my fears were put to rest the minute I stepped into the condo – absolutely gorgeous! It was spotless, the décor beautiful, the kitchen perfect for a long stay, the bed comfy, the TVs – I could go on and on. Nick met us there upon our arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. He checked in with us the next day to make sure all was well and we really appreciated that. He thought of every detail to make our stay wonderful – even had beach chairs, umbrella, and towels to use. Also the free parking and internet were a HUGE savings and the location was absolutely perfect! We will definitely be staying here again the next time we vacation in Oahu – it was heaven in paradise!
"Great location and Great condo."

We just returned from our stay at Marine Surf Condo, number 1702, which is privately owned. All the condos in the building are privately owned, so the furnishings, etc will vary from unit to unit. We found ours on VRBO.com through Tom at Waikiki Place. I highly recommend renting through Tom - he has 3 units in the building. He was pleasant and easy to deal with. He has done a nice job remodeling the unit we stayed in (and I believe from looking at the website, all the units are very similiar). Ours had a Palm Tree theme - so it was nicely decorated with palms and palm tree pictures and decorations. The unit is a studio and a tab small, but great for 2 persons. There is a nice balcony that had a table and two chairs - with a peek a boo view of the ocean and great city views - especially at night when everything was all lit up. There is a queen bed, that while not the most comfortable - it was fine and my back wasn't bothered by it at all. There is a nice sofa (sleeper I believe) with decorative pillows and coffee table, flat screen tv mounted on the wall, lots of storage place - a double dresser near the bed and another dresser and closet near the bathroom. There is an ipod docking station and stereo which was great! The kitchen has a fridge, oven and stop top, microwave, granite counter tops, had enough plates, dishes, wine glasses, coffee cups for 4 persons, plus toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots and pans. It was great for the little cooking we did - we love have breakfast in the condo or pre-dinner pupus and having a nice fridge to store everything is wonderful. There is also a small round glass top table and 2 chairs in the condo for dining. The bathroom has a shower/tub combo with a rainhead shower head, great water pressure, tile around the shower and on the floor, really nice and newly renovated. Nice towels and linens were provided. Parking spot was included - what a nice change from the expensive hotel parking! There is also free wifi. No washer dryer in the unit - but there is one on top floor. We were on the 17th floor - looking towards Royal Hawaiian Ave - it is also an end unit. Never had a problem with noise. WE did run the fan at night, but never had any problems sleeping or noise from the street. During the day, you have to remember Waikiki is a large city - so expect to hear some noise from the vehicles below - trucks, etc. Never a problem for us. Location - is GREAT! Right on Seaside Ave and Kuhio Street. Easy walk to everywhere and really right in the middle of everything. You walk any which way and there are restaurants, bars and shopping. Nice!!! Pool - this part was just OK. It is on the 4th floor - size was OK. But we didn't see any spa nor any BBQs - which would have been a nice plus. However, you are very very close to the beach and the condo did have beach towels, a cooler, chairs and umbrella - everything you needed for a day at the beach. Safety - we never felt unsafe. You enter with a key fob and use it in the elevator to get to your floor. I would think a safe in the unit would be a nice addition - but we didn't have any problems. No real big negatives that I can think of about this place - the realy negative is that we had to leave it! I would stay here again if given the opportunity.

Stayed for 7 nights in october, unit 609, operated by captain cook reservations. Greeted by Paul who kindly met us in the early hours of the morning to store our bags while the unit was being prepared & cleaned for us. This is a very nice apt. Very handy having the full kitchen with microwave with full Ice trays, &cold filtered water ready to drink in fridge. There is Free wifi, an Ipod/iphone dock. Fox tv. 2x Beach towels. Beach chairs, mats, snorkel & mask, boogie board. Hair dryer. Laundry card for washer/dryer on same floor-$1.25 to wash, 75cents to dry. Free carparking!! Location convenient to shops, trolleyline, 1 block from beach. Is across the road from several popular nightclubs which can get a little rowdy, but with the door closed & the the aircon turned on you dont hear much. This apt is ideal for the budget conscientious dont mind the hustle n bustle type

room 1106 at marine surf hotel, owned by waikikiplace.com. It as a nice room with kitchen, 1 bed and 1 sofa bed. We were 3 (2 adults & 1 child). The room is very nice, cosy, clean, like at home. But at night, it's very noisy. you heard people on street, cars..... I'm a light sleeper and Ididn't sleep very well there. And at the end of the stay, we had to move to a another room because our room was rent for the last day. It wan't a great deal, because we had to move all luggages. that was the 2 bad points there. But very good place if you are on a higher floor.
"Good but Noisy, very Noisy"

As Marine Surf apartments are individually owned, I will not comment on the individual units. However the building is extremely clean and well maintained. There is a modicum of security however entry is via a huge sliding glass door opened via electronic key. When the door opens as someone enters or leaves, there's enough time and capacity for a busload of other folks to enter the building. Nevertheless, I didn't experience any security issues there. Even on the 12th floor, however, the building is NOISY. The gay bars aren't the issue; it's the straight clubs catering to a rough crowd that result in lots of folks shouting their heads off late into the night. Once things finallly quiet down around 4AM, there's an hour or so of peace until the trash trucks arrive and empty the dumpsters at the nearby bars and restaurants. When these trucks back up, the beep beep signal is so loud you could easily mistake it for your alarm clock, even on a high floor with the window shut and A/C on! So while the location is super convenient, you may be bothered by the noise. I would recommend staying east of Liliuokalani or along Ala Wai if you want to be near the action but not disturbed by it.
