View was fantastic. Blinds in main bedroom inoperable, air con unit needs repair for air flow direction and door to balcony lock broken. Free phone would have been better if it worked. Balcony furniture needs a tidy up. Otherwise all good. A 1 page operational instruction sheet on TV, stove, fridge etc would have been useful.
Royal Kuhio was located in a perfect area!!
Amazing view from the deck on the 36th floor! just like the picture shown on the website.
Key Pick up procedure was simple, but bit far away from where i was expected....about 5mins drive.
Room was very nice and pretty much everything was prepared!
Maybe set of shampoo and new vacuum cleaner would be appreciated !
we were satisfied with the place and would like to use it again when we are in honolulu next time!!
thanks Jeffrey ;)
Jeffrey's apartment is very conveniently located in the middle of Waikiki, very close to the beach. Many bars, restaurants and shops are steps away. The apartment is spacious, with 2 bedrooms and huge balconies with a stunning ocean view. The apartment has everything that is needed for a comfortable stay - fully equipped kitchen, linen, plenty of towels, wi-fi. Definitely recommended.
Arrival was a bit of a hassle considering we had medical complications upon arrival to the country, but we were able to get in contact with the housekeeper and she was very nice in letting us in as soon as we called. (If you are arriving on the weekend, be sure to know that the Signature Homes Offices are not open on weekends so they won't be answering your calls!)
Regarding the stay, it was a very luxurious stay - everything was equipped (even beach chairs, beach parasols, etc). There was a TV in each room (living room, and 2 bedrooms) and we were a family of 6 but we were able to fit 2 people on the double beds and so it was not bad at all. There are several trolley stops nearby (nearest is Courthouse Marriot or DFS Galleria - less than 30 sec walk). There's also The Bus stop right in front of the condo - we took the 20 to go to Pearl Harbor. There's a Starbucks, Jumba Juice, Food Pantry, ABC Store, everything you need nearby!!
Downside: The housekeeper told us the washer was broken and it would take a whole day to wash so we had to use the coin laundry downstairs (although the dryer worked), and also the gym downstairs was only equipped with 5 machines and 2 bicycles, 1 elliptical (not for serious gym users!) Also, the fire alarm (set near the kitchen) is so so so sensitive, we were baking eggs and it started peeping (even with the fan on strong)! So we took it off, stored it in the cabinet until we left since we weren't about to stop that thing ringing every time we were cooking breakfast!
Regardless, the view is amazing - you can see the sunset everyday. It's a little loud at night since there are a lot of open bars around the condo - we could literally hear the lyrics to each song until around 11:30pm. BUT, just close your windows, maybe sing along and you will be asleep in no time from another amazing day spent on this beautiful island :)
We wanted to provide feedback on the rental last December. we found that the apartment was not clean when we came something that should have been done especially given the $200 in cleaning fee that is charged. It is also a little bit of a hassle to get keys from some other place and eats into valuable vacation time. The swimming pool and other amenities are also not so great. No dishwasher in the apartment is another issue especially when you are with kids. The sofa set is quite dated and not very comfortable. The location is good. Thanks.
