“Family vacation for 4; overall pleasant stay.”

Reviewed 20 Feb 2017

We stayed as a family of 4 with 2 young kids and overall it was a pleasant stay. It did have a great relatively unobstructed view and I liked that it had free parking. What we really enjoyed about this unit was the location as it's central to everything. Good restaurants, shopping, and waikiki beach are minutes away. The condo is a bit dated but fully functional. The kitchen has all the basic utensils and pots/pans. Would've been nice to have some basic spices i.e. salt/pepper/oils. The sleeping arraignments were fine but it really is more of a studio than a 1 BR as the accordion divider didn't fully close off the room and when it was pulled out, the a/c in the living room didn't reach over to the bedroom side. The pull-out couch seemed relatively new, was a bit springy but we didn't mind it. A few things I think could've been improved upon; 1. the bathtub's drain stopper + handle was missing so we were unable to take baths for the kids. 2. I really wasn't a fan of the shower head situation. It was a hand held and literally served as just that. When you try to use the hand held as an actual shower head, it doesn't position straight (literally either faces left or right) and thus doesn't really function as a shower. 3. Finally, on our last day a neighbor came by to post a sign about delaying roach/bug spraying for this unit. I found it off-putting that spraying had to be done, esp since we were traveling with young kids.

“Fantastic affordable family accommodation!!”

We stayed at the Royal Kuhio for 19 days and it was absolutely fantastic. Our kids loved all the amenities including the swimming pool and the games room. We had rented a car during our stay and having the free secure parking was such a bonus. The location was great for us. It was convenient to get to other parts of Honlolulu besides Waikiki. Everything you need is only a block or two away including the beach, the stores and great places to eat. The condo itself was very clean and had all the amenities we required during our stay. There is AC in the condo, but with the height of the codo, there was always a really nice breeze blowing in. The kitchen came in handy and saved us a bit of money during the stay as we prepared quite a few meals at the condo. The views from the balcony were amazing and because it was a corner condo, we had great views of the water as well. We had some good sessions downstairs with the bbq at the pool area and the security guards were always so pleasant and helpful. I definitely would recommend this to anyone with children or even without children just based on its amenities and its location. If we were to go back to Honolulu, we would stay there again without a doubt.

“Royal kuhio 2012”

Reviewed 10 Apr 2016

Nice location-easy walking with the beach close by. The condo was clean but lacked furniture The 3 beds were comfortable-it would have been nice to have a dresser in the room with storage to unpack our suitcases. The living room had only one sofa-we managed to squeeze 3 adults on but there was no seating for the 4 of us. The kitchen table could use updating as there were 3 chairs that matched(seats were able to lift off) and one chair that didn't match. Also no coffee table so we moved a side table to use. Curtains in bedroom need to be replaced as well as the air conditioning unit is very loud. It was nice to have a kitchen but would be nice to have a few more plates(only 4) so that we didn't need to wash after each meal. Also no drinking glasses so we purchased our own.Lanais chairs were uncomfortable and not sturdy for adults- nice ocean view. Property management company was great-very helpful and accommodating-thank you Chloe! Was a comfortable unit but could be so much more with very little effort.

Bellissimo appartamento, posizione perfetta, vicino a una fermata del pullman con tante linee che passano! Appartamento con tutto il necessario, se proprio bisogna trovare una pecca: poche salviette a disposizione!

“Perfect Stay in Honolulu”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2015

I was so impressed with everything about this condo. First thing the view is fantastic! Nothing better. Next the décor is modern and you don't feel like your cramped up in a hotel room. But most importantly is the bed. When you go to sleep a lot of condo's have very uncomfortable beds but these were plush and nice and I slept so sound. If your considering this condo rent it fast!!! You won't find anything else as nice as this and the price is right too! Thank you to the owners for the money you invested to make this unit a very nice home away from home. I stayed in another one after we checked out and was VERY disappointed.

“Clean and Convenient”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

Our family of 5 stayed at Cyndi's condo for three days before heading out to the Big Island. The condo is clean and had all the necessary amenities. Lawn chairs were provided which we took to the beach. A good sized cooler was also available to us. We were able to pack some lunches and keep our drinks cold for our outings thus giving us the extra $ to try surfing and parasailing . The condo is conveniently located about 10 minutes walk to Waikiki beach. The condo is exactly as shown on the pictures. Cyndi and her property manager were helpful and quick to respond to our inquiries.

Family of 4. Stayed for a week. Great location. Walking distance to Tue, thurs, Sat 630 FREE Hula dance show on beach, walking distance to Marakume Udon (a must for ramen or udon aficionados), nice outdoor rooftop area for grilling. Fully furnished and stocked with more appliances than you will ever use. Nice balcony to chill and have a drink. Overall, good bargain with parking included. Would highly recommend and stay here again. Thank you!

“It is a place to stay in Waikiki!”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2014

Great place to stay! Clean, spacious, fully equipped kitchen with the gas stow , A/C that was not loud, fan, books if you want to spend time reading, beach chairs and towels, everything you need to have wonderful stay in Honolulu. It felt like home ! Safe building, great view....The best thing is PARKING! You do not need to rent a car - Waikiki is right there. However, Oahu has so much to offer therefore renting a car is highly recommended. We just came back from holiday and will start planning for our visit next time. I will highly recommend Alii's beach rentals as I hope to stay in the same property next time .

“Perfect Condo at the North Shore”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2014

My family of four stayed there from 8/4 to 8/8, the location was perfect, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You hear the waves of the ocean when you sleep and the chirping of the birds when you wake up. The sunrise and early morning walks on the beach are just priceless. The condo had everything that we needed and well organized and actually stocked with basic items (laundry soap, etc). It is steps away from the ocean. The owners Raymond and Ofelia were very responsive to questions/concerns and check in instructions were clear. I definely recommend it and will rent it out when we go back.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We enjoyed our Stay here very much. IT was clean, in a great location, and very quiet. We were very leery of making reservations on the internet but were very satisfied and even commented that we would love to stay there again.

I only have two gripes, one was the sheet for the hid-a-bed was too small and two there was no cookie sheet to cook on. Not the end of the world for us we enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to returning sooner rather than later.

Thank you to Shelly, you and your staff were amazing. Checking in on us while the Tsunami warning was in affect, Thank you, that was very sweet and very way over the top. Mahalo!

Comfortable apartment. Fantastic kitchen, with new, full-sized appliances. A/C works really well. A great price which includes parking and wireless internet access. I would definitely stay here again. The people at Ali'i Beach Rentals are awesome to work with. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

We had a great time and would consider staying there again on future trips. We have traveled to Hawaii numerous times and found the property and location ideal for our needs.
Everything worked out well. Property outfitted as described. Location was what we were looking for. Would definitely recommend Alii Beach Rentals to others.
