Honolulu condo with great views! Overall the condo was good. It has great views and lots of space. It has a few updates, but many cabinet doors were hanging off the hinges and didn’t close. The refrigerator had no handle. The beach equipment was lacking. There was only one sport chair. The boogie boards were broken. It met our needs. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, July 8, 2019 Aloha and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the condo met your needs – was spacious and had great views! We will have our maintenance team fix the cabinet doors. The beach equipment must have been left by a previous guest we will have our cleaners throw out the broken boogie boards.

Lovely convenient location The rental was lovely. We loved the location, views, and fact that there was a separate elevator from lower floors! It comfortably accommodated our group. In fact I think it might have been one of the biggest condos I've rented, which was wonderful with kids and construction on the pool deck (super bummed about since that was the whole reason why we stayed in this building). The set up of the condo was a bit unique with the smaller bedroom having the balcony.<br/>Now for the downside, there was a handful of broken but mostly usuable things in the condo. For example, the fridge door and a dinning room chair was broken, which isnt terrible would be nice if there were enough seats at the table as there are places for people to sleep. Also, broken stuff seemed to end up in the master bedroom closet. <br/>We did contact the rental company about being uncomfortable having over 30 yr old smoke detectors. They replaced them within a few days without any problems. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, April 29, 2019 We hate when things clutter up and it has been cleared. We appreciate you and your family staying with us!

Honolulu Escape Great location but needs a lot of updating. The pool area is closed for a much needed remodel. Hopefully the unit is next. But even with the stained carpet and cupboards that wouldn&#x2019;t stay closed, the views and great location were enjoyed. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, March 26, 2019 Yes we agree, the pool deck should look great! We are sorry we could not get the carpet cleaned before your check in, and it is scheduled for cleaning for 3/26. Thank you for the review and for booking with Alii Beach Rentals!

A Little Slice of Heaven on the 36th Floor The views are incredible, mountain, Diamond Head and some ocean. Very roomy for the four of us and separated bedrooms were great for privacy. The kitchen was important to all of us as we all have different dietary needs and it did not disappoint as it was well equipped, however there could be a pair of scissors added. We had an issue with the refrigerator and it was replaced quickly. We loved having the washer and dryer so we could pack fewer items. The beds/pillows were very comfy, good night's rest. The LOCATION was so fun! A few blocks from the beach,but the International Market Place as well as downtown Waikiki are so fun to explore. We loved the FREE covered and secure parking, usually around $40/day anywhere else. Also, we had exclusive access to the elevator to the 36th floor, much faster than stopping on all of the other floors. The condo can get a bit noisy at times so we turned on a/c and fell right asleep. A few weeks before our arrival, we were made aware that the pool would not be available as repairs were being made. They offered us a different unit but we opted to stay. It wasn't a big deal for us. Also, saw some of the best double rainbows we have ever seen from the 36th floor. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, March 19, 2019 Best rainbows on the island right were looking back at the Koolau Mountain Range! Things like a failed fridge may happen in a vacation rental, but we have a full staff of property managers and maintenance crew to take care of these types of emergencies!! Thats why some consider us #1 in Waikiki!

Stuart Malcolm - 27 Sep to 11 Oct 2018 This Condo easily accommodated our party of 5 adults. Location, location, location is the best in Waikiki. All beds were very comfortable and the lounge was big enough to seat us all. The washing and dryer machine in our Condo was great. The new black-out curtab in both bedrooms kept the rooms dark well into the mornings. The free WiFi helped us keep in contact with family and friends. Ali&#x2019;i Beach Rentals were great and assisted with all our needs. The owners of this Condo are no doubt very proud of the standards they provide.<br/><br/>On the downside, the fridge freezer makes ice but does not get cold enough to properly free meat, it only particularly freezes meat. The fridge gets cold but, it&#x2019;s average at best and takes several days to chill food, and yes the fridge / freezer was set to the highest settings. Past occupiers of the Condo have commented on the fridge issues, but to no avail. The air conditioner in the 2nd bedroom particularly cools the room, but when you leave the bedroom to enter the main living room area you quickly realize the bedrooms air conditioner is failing. The other 2 air conditioners in the master bedroom / living room chills theses areas with ease. The owners of this Condo would save lots of money by replacing all 3 window mounted style air conditioning units with modern split-system inverter air conditioners. The operating costs of new inverter air conditioners would quickly pay for its self - the power utility bill would be severely reduced. Both the iron and hair dryer (2nd bathroom) don&#x2019;t work. There is only 5 dinning chairs in the Condo, which is listed as sleeping 6 adults. One of the 5 dinning room chairs is broken and was found inside the walk in robe, in the master bedroom. The cooking elements on the stove cook top are sitting high, this causes the frying pan to slide off the cooking element. The noise from the Condo above is very load, when they open the Lanie sliding door - their sliding Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Thursday, October 18, 2018 Overall, a solid review and the owners will be notified about the appliances. We are working to get the repairs done for new photos as soon as possible. Thank you for staying with ABR!

Royal Kuhio Mountain view We recently stayed at this location during a visit to Honalulu, Wakiki Beach.<br/>Everything about about it exceeded our expectations. Having booked online, and not know exactly the location, it was great. The location was not far from the beach, and pickup locations for tours etc. were either steps from the building, or many times picked up directly at the venue. The condo was clean and invitingly cool. Surprisingly, the pool was next to empty, which it made it very pleasant!

3602 The condo was adequate. I have stayed at the Royal Kuhio before at a different unit. This unit had old furniture that had stains and scratches. The multiple jalousie windows for the most part had broken or unworkable levers. There was only one small television. The kitchen and bathroom cabinets were all painted over and do not close fully.. The washing machine is extremely noisy when going through the spin cycle. The air conditioning units have all been replaced, but there is enclosures around same that leave large gaps and the doors slam at night due to the improper enclosures which are not pleasant to look at. The berber carpet has multiple pulls. The pictures shown is very deceiving. The views, however, were beautiful due mostly to the high floor. The location is very convenient and there is security. The pool, sauna, game room, exercise room are all very nice. Reservation process and check in/out was good. There are two keys provided for the unit, one for the door and one for elevator access. Only one of which worked for the garage. I did stop into the office on Kalakaua Avenue and advised them of my displeasure with the unit, but did not receive a response to my complaints. I advised them that I would use Alii again in the near future, but never this unit. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Thursday, November 3, 2016 We remember you stopping by and letting us know that the unit was good, but you preferred our 3306 unit.

Very bright condo with great location This condo has a fantastic amount of window that makes it bright and welcoming. It was spacious and I can't say enough how convenient it was to have two bathrooms and in house washer and dryer. The kitchen also has a window over the sink which was a pleasure. It was clean and all stated amenities such as beach towels and toiletries were available. The rental company provided clear and concise information by email so we knew exactly what we were to do upon arrival and departure. This removal of uncertainty makes for a much more enjoyable holiday. The condo also comes with two parking stalls which eliminated the need to find and pay for parking. Another feature we definitely appreciated. It's location is also great with a short walk to the beach. The condo itself is definately due for an upgrade. The carpet in particular is quite worn and stained, some broken tiles and very outdated cabinetry. If you are looking for the lastest in modern decor, this is not the place fir you. We were there for sun and beach so it did not bother us in the least. We wanted spacious, clean and convenient and it fit the bill perfectly.

Royal Kuhio Location was excellent (one block back from the main street) with a bus stop just outside. The trolley and buses to the outlet stores and day trips were 1 minute walk away.<br/><br/>The apartment was spacious and clean which was great after being on a cruise ship for over two weeks. The décor was a little dated, but the views more than made up for it!<br/><br/>We were unlucky that one of the (two) lifts was being upgraded during our stay, but as 3602 is one the upper floors (L30 - 36 I think) the wait was never more than a few minutes.<br/><br/>Ali'i were very easy and professional to deal with, and were quick to answer any questions we had. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, and have certainly recommended this as a viable alternative to friends who are frequent travellers to Hawaii.

Stay at Royal Kuhio could have been nicer We stayed at the Royal Kuhio 3602 for 6 nights. The location is fairly centralized in Wakiki with many restaurants and the main shopping venues nearby within walking distance. It is about 3 blocks to get to the beach. While we enjoyed our stay there and felt that it was a good value when you consider the number of rooms/bedding and baths and other amenities like in-unit washer/dryer and included parking garage space, there is one thing that really stood out as a negative - how dirty the carpet and dining chairs appeared. I do not believe that these are stains that cannot be cleaned, so it does not seem like the cleaning fee that we are paying is being used to maintain the unit like it should. The unit looks as it does in the pictures, but the carpeting and dining room chairs need cleaning. If the unit was as clean as it appeared in the pictures, I would have given 4-4.5 star rating, but in its current condition I would only give it a 2.5-3 star rating overall and no more than 2 stars for cleanliness and general condition. As you can probably tell, I am someone that cares about cleanliness. To me the condition of the carpeting and dining chairs is well below what you would expect from a good hotel room. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Wednesday, June 25, 2014 I want to let you know that we value your feedback very much and these issues have been discussed with the owner. We are in fact putting in new carpet in July and I will see that the dining chairs are cleaned or resurfaced. We hope you consider Ali'i Beach Rentals in the future and we are happy to hear you enjoyed Hawaii. The unit will be in better condition the next time you return to paradise, mahalo & aloha from Ali'i Beach Rentals Management.

Aloha Experience - 3602 Royal Kuhio We had a very enjoyable holiday, loved the Condo.<br/><br/>The Condo was great, it meet all our expectations - top location, great views and in the middle of Waikiki. The 2 car parking spaces are a great asset, as we hired 2 cars.<br/><br/>Management quickly replaced the unserviceable air conditioner unit in the master bedroom, once we contacted them after submitting an online maintenance request 4 days earlier.<br/><br/>The beds were comfortable. A 2nd queen size bed (replacing the current double) in the 2nd bedroom would be a very valuable improvement - as a double bed does not suit a 2nd couple's sleeping needs. Today's standard is a queen size bed.<br/><br/>The kitchen was well appointed, internet worked well and the washing machine and clothes dryer was most convenient. The kitchen tap leakes water when turned on and water runs onto the kitchen bench top - it may need a new washer.<br/><br/>We have no reservations in rebooking this great Condo - overall experience was great.<br/><br/>Aloha until we next return.<br/><br/>

Average accomodation We arrive to the rental late one night. The bed sheets looked like they had not been washed as they were dirty and hair was all over them, needless to say we had laundry to do. The place needs some upgrading as the sheets had holes in them and the kitchen pots and pans (we are a family that likes to cook) were in rough shape. Location is good but noisy. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and in suite laundry was awesome. With a few more upgrades this place would be awesome.

Better than a Hotel This is the third time we have rented from Ali'i Beach Rentals. Their communication and check-in/check-out is reliable and easy.

The unit was a little messy, the air conditioner in the living room was broken and I guess maintenance staff just left it disassembled and on the floor when we first walked in. Attempted to call maintenance staff but was told to call an extension in the morning, and in the morning was told that he was busy. Overall it was a decent place and we had a great time, had a gorgeous view overlooking the city on one side and another view of Waikiki beach on the other.

A large Condo in an excellent position! Our stay in Unit 3602 was fantastic. Unit has everything you could want - large and spacious for a condo - kitchen had everything you could want - also plenty of towels, beach towels, beach mats, boogie boards etc. Access via elevators was efficient as they have 2 elevators dedicated to top 6 floors only - you never had to wait mnore than 1-2 mins for one. Unit has amazing views, balaconies face in land. The only drawback is that windows in bedroom do not have block out curtains, which meant you were awake early. Air con units in both bedrooms and lounge were noisy but effective. Unit was clean and modern, a shame that the cream carpet was marked and soiled by past tennants but cream carpet is probably not the best thing to have in a tennanted condo. Access to high speed wireless internet and free local phone calls was excellent. Instructions received for process to access unit were clear and I encounted no issues with either check in or check out. I would highly recommend this condo for families wishing to reduce their dependance on eating out as this can prove expensive over a longer holiday. I will definitely stay at Royal Kuhio 3602 again on my next visit. Aloha!

Great Location - But Take Ear Plugs After a week on the Big Island we ventured back to Oahu for a week in Waikiki, the following offers the good and the not so good of staying in this property.<br/>The Good:<br/>1. The Alii Beach Rental folks were very helpful and prompt - the process to get keys/ check-in and out worked well.<br/>2. The location of the property is good, its a two block walk to the beach, but the prop is close to all conveniences.<br/>3. Views from the unit were great, although not a beach view, you could see Waikiki beach through the end window.<br/>4. Safety and security was good, security gurad downstairs, multiple levels of keys/ buzzers etc.<br/>5. Parking!!! Awesome two spots, although we only used one.<br/>6. Cooking facilities were excellent.<br/>The Not So Good:<br/>1. NOISE - wow this place is noisy, and the prop uses louver windows - what a fail! I slept with earplugs in for all nights. Then the wind whipped up and it sounded like a train outside... sirens and more sirens could be heard at all hours and the odd drunken fight. Noise carries at night, and what this property needs is decent windows!<br/>2. Decor is definitely dated, you come to expect that I guess. Didn't bother us too much, but you just need to expect it.<br/>3. Water pressure - if you like long showers then this is the place, as the water drips out you will need to spend a long time getting wet! <br/><br/>Summary: If it wasn't for the noise I think our stay would have been a much better one, apart from that for Waikiki good value for money if you are budget conscious and after a budget location/ property then this should be considered. Would we stay in this property next time - no, unless the noise/ windows issues were fixed.

5 Stars- Had a nice stay with the family. First off, the communication was great. Everything was exactly like they stated. (How to get key, location, checkout, etc...) Second, the video and pictures are of this exact condo. I was skeptical that it was pictures of a similar condo and the views were photoshopped. However, it was this condo in the pictures. The views were great. Partial view of the ocean from the bedroom and livingroom with a very nice view of Diamondhead. Although not on the beach, this condo is very easy walking distance to the beach (about 2-3 blocks). Shopping and restaurants were very conveniently located next to this condo. With the nice kitchen, we were able to eat in several times and save a little money. I also liked the gated parking area. Your vehicle is protected from any pedestrians in a gated parking spot. This condo is on the 36th floor and basically has its own elevator that only takes you to the pool floor (7) and floors 32 and above so there was no wait or annoying stops for floors 8-31. By being on the 36th floor, you have the nicest views of Honolulu. It has a real nice lanai for the main living area and another private lanai for the master bedroom. Also, if you are staying here, You can leave a lot of stuff at home. We brought beach towels, etc... Only to find that this condo provided beach towels, mats, coolers, boogie boards and more. We will definitely stay here again for our next vacation to Honolulu!!! This condo was great!!!

Accurate description of property. Kitchen cupboards need repairing as they don't close. Where the air conditioner is fitted in the window of the main bedroom needs repairing, also the curtains need to be updated as they have no backing and the light comes straight through. Dining seats could do with a clean. All in all we where very happy with our stay and would recommend staying here, we would stay there again if we were holidaying in Waikiki.

The view is great and the room is spaceous. The curtains are very thin and the sunlight shines on your face early in the morning... waking you up. Being on vacation, I prefer the rooms to be darker so I could sleep longer. Property manager and maintenance are great. They respond quickly. The property is clean and me and my family feel safe because of the security of the building.

This condo is on the 36th floor and basically has its own elevator that only takes you to the pool floor (7) and floors 32 and above so there was no wait or annoying stops for floors 8-31. By being on the 36

This unit was exactly as the photos showed. Spotlessly clean and fantastic location. Everything had been thought of by the owners right down to the sunscreen and boogie board. Just had to add food absolutely nothing else. Loved it, loved it, loved it.

The unit was great, size, position and very clean. There were a few problems that probably should be rectified, mainly the cockroaches, there is quite a bad infestation, to the point that we had to wash everything before we used it. Also some of the louvre window winders weren't working, in the spare room and the lounge side window making the noise of the wind unbearable particularly trying to sleep in the spare room. The carpet could do with a clean just to remove a few stains. Other then those complaints our stay was fantastic.

Easy to walk to beach and shopping. Bus service at front door. A little noisy at night. All in all our stay was great and would use this location again.

This rental experience was absolutely the best. All Communication was done via e-mail and the entire experience went off without a hitch. The booking was so complete that I could not even think of a question to ask that was not already answered in print. Everything was as it was stated and the pictures were completely accurate. The unit was clean, roomy enough for 5 adults, safe and the location was ideal. And yes, I would definitely use Alii Beach Rentals again! No more cramped hotel rooms!

  • The price shown always changes, you have to calculate it yourself and often changes once you communicate with the owner.
  • Most owners do not take the time to provide complete information on listings, so you waste time having to ask questions and wait for responses.
  • In a nutshell, "Web Directories" are cumbersome and time consuming, and if you have a problem, you are on your own.
