  • The apartment is really on the ocean front and has a great view of the sea and a nice balcony to enjoy the view. There is lots of towels available and even beach equipment, and we found the place to generally be well stocked with supplies. The Wifi also works with Netflix or similar. The owners also provides lots of information about things to do in the area around the condo (all though the estimated times to get to those places for the most part are way too optimistic).

    We liked the place, however one should note that there is no door between the bedroom and the rest of the condo. There is only a curtain, which can be a bit of a problem for some if kids go to bed early or if there are two couples expecting privacy. Also if you are weary of noise during the night the freeway is close by and there are traffic at night time.

  • Roland (email hidden), great communicator, and easy to work and deal with. My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay at Roland's condo. Rolando provided practically everything you would need or can imagine with the rental from snorkeling equipment to directions to places to eat or hike. The kitchen is well stocked with all the cooking utensils and equipment. All you need is the food. There is quite a collection of stuff left to use from previous renters like coffee filters or butter. Everything that you may need is only 5-10 minutes north. We rented a car but you could go without and use the bus, there is stop close to the condo.

  • We had a great time staying at Roland's condo. Before our arrival Roland sent us very helpful material about the area that enhanced our stay. The condo is clean, well kept and equipped, and filled with extras like snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, beach chairs and pads. While we were there Roland came over after calling first for our OK and installed a brand new blue ray player. We slept on the Murphy bed in the main room wooed to sleep by the sound of the surf, and woke up each morning to a beautiful sunrise off of the veranda overlooking the ocean. Then breakfast on the veranda and a quick swim in the ocean to get the day started. Our neighbors were quiet and courteous. One small caution...if you are planning to sleep more than two, be prepared for road noise in the back bedroom.

  • My husband and I stayed at the condo on our first visit to the island this May and it was great! Perfect little beach right in our backyard!! The condo had everything we could need for the beach as well as a ton of guide books and maps. The laundry area was a great bonus.

  • Roland's condo had everything our family needed and more (including aloe vera and sunblock as well as many food pantry items). Lovely country location though a bit of a drive from the airport. We loved waking up to the sound of the waves and walking to take a dip or play in the beach to start our day. Roland's communication was great and getting to and inside of the condo was a breeze. Highly recommend for a small family or couple.

    Response from Roland:

    Hi Catherine,
    Thanks for your comments ... and sorry about the glass. The previous guests had let me know that they accidentally broke one of the wine glasses. I guess a piece ended up underneath the couch and our cleaning crew somehow missed that when they cleaned the condo the next day. We'll pass this along so they will be aware.

  • Great stay. Roland was super responsive in all communications

  • Roland's condo was great, right on the beach, lots of parking and very quiet. Clean, good amenities and we made use of the snorkel gear. We slept on the murphy bed which was very nice listening to the beach at night. Would definitely recommend if you like to get out of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Roland (email hidden), always providing good advice and assistance!

  • Great laid back condo with 70's vibe. View is awesome from deck. Shrimp Shack and Ching's store were a plus nearby. My family enjoyed our time here.
    Murphy bed worked out well.
    Some of the snorkel gear was broken but not the owners fault, people need to take better care of his stuff. We ended up not using it since there was a tsunami advisory during our stay. The Boogie boards and beach towels/mats were a great addition. Waimea Bay and Lanikai were our favorite beaches.

    Roland was great on communication and directions.
    I would rent this again if I travel back to the windward side or North Shore of Oahu

    Response from Roland:

    Alex,
    Glad to hear you hand an enjoyable stay and thanks again for alerting us about the condition of the snorkel gear since feedback is one of the primary ways for us to know when things are not in order. We've already notified our property manager and she has thrown out all the gear and replaced it with new equipment. Hope you'll come back and stay with us again.

  • Roland (email hidden) and arranged the Condo in Punalu'u very nicely. We drove there from the airport and got the key from the lock box and parked with no problem. The sounds of the surf breaking out on the reef was so peaceful to listen to while we slept on the pull-down bed in the living room next to the terrace. Our kids slept in the back alcove space. The kitchen had all we needed for cooking meals, and the washer and drier made the stay so convenient. And the beach was perfect, you would have huge stretches to yourself each day to swim or make a sand-castle, something just not possible if staying at a crowded resort like at Waikiki or Ko Olina. There are also nice chairs along the grass next to the beach (email hidden). Of course staying in a condo in an 8 story building is not the same as having your own beach house, but this was the only affordable way for us to do this as a family. Anyway, the elevators were fast and I never had to wait.

  • Stayed for 4 nights at Hawaii Condo and wished we stayed for a week! Everything was just as described. Condo is clean and can comfortably host 4 people. We didn't use the kitchen facilities much as we were out most of the time but it is equipped with almost everything you will need. Roland (email hidden). He emailed me all the information I need to plan our trip well in advance. He has detailed suggested itineraries and even left guides and maps for us to use. There are beach towels, beach mats, snorkeling gear, body boards and children's life vest also available for our use.

    Punaluu is about 30-45 minutes away from the tourist zoo that is Waikiki but just as beautiful. It is located on the Windward coast of Oahu in case you were wondering (I was), thus can get a bit windy. 2 of our days started out overcast but we just drove 30 minutes southwest to Kaneohe, Kailua and Lanikai beaches and it was perfection. Another day we drove up to the North shore past Turtle bay and Shark's Cove to the surfing capital of Haleiwa for more wave action (but surfing season was already over) but (email hidden) to visit.

    Travel Tip: Use the Murphy bed. Not only will the ocean lull you to sleep but it is also away from the walkway, the freeway (which are on the bedroom side) and the bed more comfortable. Overall great experience.

    Will I stay here again? Hell yeah!
