Right for the price This condo was fine, pretty much what we expected for the price. Location is great; walking distance to the beach, bay, and plenty of restaurants and hotels. The picture above the wall is sitting next to the bed, the mattress is poor, but otherwise it was generally clean and well stocked. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Sunday, December 9, 2018 Thank you so mush for the review. The bed is scheduled for replacement, and the picture has been re-hung. We are very proud to say our very own and new cleaning company is now cleaning this property! Please sign up for the Alii Beach Rentals Rewards program!

It is an older building but comfortable. It is not the Riiz. The TV was had issues did not always come on.

Perfect location Perfect location, close to beach, shops and restaurants. Great studio apartment with everything you need for a short stay. The photos are true to what it looks like. <br/><br/>The only negative was that cleaning was not great, there was a lot of dust everywhere. Not sure if there hadn't been any tenants for a while or why that was, because sheets and towels were all clean. <br/><br/>We loved our stay here, and would choose this apartment again in a heartbeat.

Great Location Had another great holiday in Waikiki. Enjoyed the views on our huge balcony. Could see Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Had a good kitchenette. Lifts were always there. Only negative thing was the garbage trucks and rubbish skips picking up at 430 am every morning. Reversing beeps and trucks dumping skips!

Cute Condo for a Solo Traveler I really loved this cute condo. The bed was comfy, and I loved that it had a bathtub as well as a shower. The full stove-top range plus microwave allowed me to cook a nice breakfast each day, and sit out on the balcony to enjoy an early morning breeze before taking a 3-minute walk over to the beach. Towels, beach items, and some small amenities such as shampoos and soaps were all waiting for me upon arrival. This really was a home-away-from-home, and I would highly recommend this studio for solo travelers, or couples. One detail that is very important (especially for jet-lagged arrivals like me) is that there are two entrances that have the address "2450 Koa Ave." The taxi let me off at the entrance with the address stenciled on the door. I was punching in the key code on the keypad that was on the door, unaware that this was the entrance to a small tour company. I went down the street to collect my thoughts at the McDonalds and make a phone call. I realized then that the taxi should have dropped me at the main door, where the key lets you in, and the keypad is actually on the door to the studio apartment on the 8th floor, not the main door. The other glitch came upon check-out. At 10 am I ran downstairs to get a last minute souvenir. When I returned to check-out, my keypad code was no longer valid! My taxi to the airport was to arrive in 25 minutes, and my purse, luggage and passport were all locked in the room. Fortunately I had taken my phone with me, and using the wifi signal through my locked door, I was able to connect to Skype to contact someone to let me in. It was a hair-raising 20 minutes or so being locked out right at the time I was to go to the airport. The company was apologetic and said they would look into why the code was changed before check-out time. Other than the keypad issues, my stay was excellent, and I would repeat it in a flash. Top reasons; Cleanliness, proximity to beach, comfy bed, full-use kitchen, nice balcony. Thank you!

Good location, but... We stayed at this property for two weeks while on vacation in Honolulu. The good: The location was excellent - just a block from the beach, and a block from the bus stop. The Hospitality app, installed on my phone, was excellent, offering all the information you could need. The bed was very comfortable. The bad: You get what you pay for. There were plenty of issues. Upon arriving at the property, late at night, we opened the lock box to find that there was no key, as promised in the arrival instructions. We read that at least one other vacationer had the same issue, so this is definitely something that needs to be addressed by Ali'i Beach Rentals. We called Ali'i, but at midnight we were only able to leave a voice message (and never did receive a call-back afterwards). Fortunately, Dave, the property manager, happened to come by, and let us into the building. Otherwise, we'd be stuck on the street at midnight with no idea what to do. Now, for the condo itself: This is a "bare bones" condo, equivalent in size to a hotel room. The kitchen isn't badly equipped - having all the basics, but nothing more. The kitchen cupboards were extremely high, and thus we often had to use the step stool to get bowls or glasses. There is a very small round patio table with two plastic patio chairs, which really wasn't big enough to sit at for a meal. The water in the bathtub runs continuously - not a drip, drip, but a continuous - and very annoying - trickle. The noise from construction, tourist buses, and garbage trucks was insane. Construction at a hotel across the street started at 4AM, with the first activity being to exchange the huge construction dumpster just across the street from the condo. Backup beepers could be heard at any time, day or night. That was probably our single biggest complaint. A close second was the tiny ants that covered the countertop if we left any kind of food uncovered. They even managed to make their way inside a box of dry cereal, even with the inne Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Dave is a great building manager, always nice when he can help. The drip in the bathroom will be looked at very soon. There will be more formal furniture arriving at the end of February as well. Thank you for your help to get us better!!

Great location for a great price. The location of this condo is amazing. From the balcony you have a great view of Diamond Head and the ocean. You are a quick walk to the beach, stores and restaurants are everywhere. The location is the reason we booked it. The price was also great. When we had an issue with the wifi, I was able to reach the rental company right away and they helped me fix it. <br/><br/>The only issue with the property would be the noise but that is not a fault of the property but the price of being downtown and near the beach. I would definitely go back to this location.

Great Diamond head view I decided on this unit because of the view, my favorite spot in Hawaii, Diamond Head. This was my second rental from Ali'i Rentals and I will use them again, even though this unit was a big disappointment. The location is close to the beach but it is a very , let's just say, dirty area. The unit itself is much smaller than it looks and needs a good going over. Carpet is very dirty and the unit is so small you have to lay across the foot of the bed to watch tv, or sit in a plastic patio chair. I gave Ali'i a list of a few things that need attention. They did come right over when I called them the first morning I was there. I think if the view of Diamond head wasn't as good as it was I might have left. I made do with the apartment but a good cleaning and a few repairs would make a big difference.

21 day stay at seashore #81 Nothing about this picture other than the round table in the room and the headboard resemble this rental. They are plastic patio chairs in the room to sit on. The bedding didn't match and the pillows were stained and wore out. There is no greenery in the suite. The carpet was the worst, old and said to be cleaned but stained all over it. Their is no blackout curtain behind the draperies, so you sleep in complete light because of the other hotels lights at night. The lanai furniture the chairs are plastic also. The lanai surface is chipped and dirty and needs painting. The bed corner was broken and we slept on a slant for 3 weeks. The tv should be mounted on the wall its stuffed in a wooden cabinet with the telephone. Convenient location yes but homeless and drunk people outside the building always. Stayed in this building before in a clean renovated unit. Found out we could of stayed at the queen kapioloni hotel of the pacific monarch for the same price and had service everyday. The towel in the bathroom was broken, we called beach rentals they brought a step stool and never fixed the bed or towel rack. Stayed VRBO always in Hawaii but never again her in the future, no service to checking in how we were doing in this horrendous rental. We paid over $3000.00 Canadian for a mess .

Excellent stay Very positive ! I was lucky that I stayed in after the new flooring was installed . The floor was clean and easy to broom out the sand. Clean and well equipped unit . King size bed was comfortable , sheets were clean. Location was excellent , balcony view was amazing . There is no laundry inside the unit , only in the garage area there was no laundry detergent we had to buy and we left the it in the unit for the next guests. Overall Id recommend ppl to stay . Minor fix would be to change Bedside light bulbs because they won't turn on, lower rack of bathroom fell off my boyfriend placed it back but it's probably still loose . It's a bit noisy with renovations going on in other units, the street noise too but we didn't care we were so busy with activities and slept well after a full day of fun. It's a safe area . Yes the surrounding is a bit "ghetto" and lots of bums it may be a culture shock for certain ppl but don't worry they won't bother you! I grew up in a guetto neighbourhood and trust me I feel SAFER in Waikiki than downtown Montreal. I think what made my first trip to Hawaii so successful was that I did not have to worry about issues with the place I stayed . I'm glad i chose this stay . Thank you Ali beach rental !

Acceptable after cleaning ourselves. We are renting the unit for 3 months beginning Jan. 3-April 3,2014.we arrived at 4AM due to a late flight from Vancouver and were extremely disappointed to find the condition of the unit which was not as pictured above. The Rental Agency was closed on the weekend and were finally able to connect with the Maintenance Department to address our concerns:filthy,stained carpet,5"ice build up in refridgerator with a broken hinge,vacuum tilted with dust and dirty inside and out with black filters,hair dryer not working, cob webs hanging over the stove from the ceiling,bugs under the sink with old paint cans,garbage on the lanai,broken wine glass and missing coffee mug,old TV, coffee maker dirty and water spotted.the carpet was steam cleaned on Sunday but after 3 days of drying was still stained. The Rental Agency did replace the vacuum, TV, Hair Dryer, removed the garbage from the lanai, bought new wine glasses,coffee mugs and a 50 foot cord so we could sit down to make calls.the Condo Manager has been friendly and helpful. The washers and clothes dryers are outside in the parking area and are also very dirty but do work. When it rains you have to step in 4" water to put your clothes in the dryer. Noise from the garbage trunks wake us up every morning from 5-8AM.all said and down the unit is now habitable and we are looking forward to the next two months here and will probably return due to the units location.

Honest Review This is studio that you wish to keep to yourself, so it doesn't get booked out for your next stay.<br/>Booking from an overseas country you are always wary that something could go wrong. It couldn't be further from the truth. Alii Beach Rentals are very professional and I would not hesitate to use them again, they answered all questions and were always very helpful. The location is perfect, and the price is something you don't want to share with others. You are surrounded by other hotels that start at 3 times what you pay at Seashore and I guarantee you get the same view, but you have to pay for all the bells and whistles that go with staying at a named hotel. You are in a secure unit block meters from the beach. They have two elevators so you are never waiting to go up to the unit. When entering the unit there is a King size bed that was very comfortable to sleep in. There is also a kitchenette that can save you lots of money. We ate breakfast there each day and also when still in Waikiki had lunch there as well, by buying sandwich ingredients etc at the Food Pantry just minutes away or the ABC shop across the road. If you wanted you could also cook dinner there as well, with the stove top and microwave. The freezer does freeze up quickly but that wasn't a problem for our 9 day stay. The bathroom is older in style and a bit on the small size but again not a problem for our stay. I would stay again in this studio and recommend it to other travellers that don't want to pay for the overheads that other hotels make you pay. If anything you get much more from this studio than the surrounding hotels. PS You can't beat sitting out on the balcony during your stay watching the waves and world slip by.

The Seashore, Unit 81 The Seashore Unit 81 is well located, one block from the beach in the southern, more "beachy" part of Waikiki. The building is only blocks from anywhere in Waikiki you'd want to go. Surf shops, restaurants and small stores line one side of the street, in contrast to other parts of Waikiki more developed with modern shopping malls and high office and condo buildings. It's one block from city bus lines that, with connections, can take you to most major attractions throughout Honolulu and Oahu. Kapiolani Park and the Ala Wai Canal path are close for excellent walking and running. Bike, motorcycle and car rental places dot the neighborhood. Unit 81 is a small living space. The unit is clean and comfortable, though the carpeting is a bit worn. The bathroom is small and has no counter space. The lanai has a nice view of Diamond Head and the ocean between surrounding buildings, and offers a welcome vibe where one might wish to take their breakfast or lunch or enjoy sunset cocktails. The kitchen is small and well-equipped, though only suitable for light meals. The unit is ideal for a single person or couple spending a short time in Waikiki and seeking an alternative to the big hotels. I throughly enjoyed my stay there.

Satisfied customer When we arrived at the building the lock box had been moved and not updated on the printed directions so we had issue w/finding it. I called a rep from Alii and he responded within a few minutes. The maintenance man also called AND stopped by to make sure we had got in the unit okay. This situation was resolved quickly and in a professional manner. The unit itself was small, cozy and nicely decorated was just fine for two people (three is pushing it). They do have a blow up mattress for a third person if needed. My daughter who lives in Pearl Harbor Navy base picked us up from the airport and stayed/slept on air mattress a couple of times during our stay says it was comfortable. Kitchenette has nice counter tops, everything you would need to make a meal (stovetop) no oven. Small fridge. Brand new air conditioner. Cute little bathroom (no full bathtub) but nice shower. They have beach accessories out on the lanai for us to use. This building is 1/2 block from Kuhio beach, very short walk! I was down there a couple of times every day!! Great for swimming/lounging on the beach and free hula shows a couple of times during the week. Lots of good restaurants in the area and close to the zoo. The building is next door to a Mexican restaurant, blazing steaks and a surf shop.Farther down the block is Farmers market (Wed)and vendors daily inside Hyatt building. A short walk to shopping International Market place. ABC store on the corner. Food Pantry short walk for groceries. The street is relatively quiet. Lot of locals live in the area. Seems like it gets a little rowdy on the weekends but feels safe in room/building. A car isn't needed/recommended in this area. The cheapest parking my daughter found was 15.00 a night a few blocks away. If you want a decent, cozy, clean place to lay your head at night this is it.

Excellent Location This condo was in an awesome location! Very close to restaurants, and many beaches. Perfect for a week stay. The only recommendation I would have is to clean out the freezer of all the ice build up and maybe to get a carpet cleaner in to rid some of the carpet stains. Other than that this condo is ideal with ocean views and very affordable. Management was very easy to contact through email and responded in a timely manner. I felt safe walking around this area and would stay here again! Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, December 16, 2013 We will address the freezer as soon as possible and the owner is looking to install tile in the unit soon!

Waikiki Seashore 81 Pros:<br/>-Property management company was very easy to deal with, gave detailed instructions. <br/>-Location was great, very central. <br/>-Older building but suite was great for the price and fast elevator. <br/>-Good view, big lanai, nice breeze (barely needed AC). <br/>-Suite was clean, the King bed was nice and firm (very comfortable). <br/>I noticed some people mentioned the ice in the freezer, it helped keep the wine glasses cool and kitchenette was great. <br/><br/>Cons:<br/>-Suite could use some modernizing. There also is no dishwasher or in-suite laundry. That's fine for short stay but might be an issue for those looking to stay longer<br/>-Plenty of amenities on hand (toilet paper, towels, extra blanket/pillow) but extra shampoo/conditioner/body wash would have been great (it wasn't enough for 2 people for 4 days but we had brought our own with us). <br/>-Wish the maid service could handle taking out garbage and doing dishes. <br/><br/>Overall: I would stay here again and recommend to friends. Not too many downsides, and price/location make up for it Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, April 21, 2014 Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, we do provide the essentials for a couple days and then it is the guest responsibility to provide their own.

Close to Paradise for a fraction of the price I read a few reviews on the place before we left and to be fair I think certain people expect too much. The price of the condo was 1/3 to anywhere else and for the location was unbeatable. It was older style, the block was older, not a resort but didn't bother us in the least, we were barely there. The location was 1 block from beach and everything else. The building Manager David was friendly and helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. If you just want a comftorble bed, small kitchen and a view this is your place. If your expecting all the trimmings, resort features etc than go to a resort. For the price you can't beat the value, you get what you pay for and I will definitely book through Ali'i for my next Hawaii Holiday.

To potential guests who are reading this review... we don't filter our guest reviews which means every review we see you see. We think this is important so that you know exactly what you're renting and reviews are one of the best ways for you to accomplish this. This is not a common occurrence at this property. In fact this is the first time it has happened to one of our guests. With that being said this is not a rough neighborhood by any means. The Hyatt is right across the street which is a luxurious hotel. Anyways, we hope you realize this after reading all the reviews. ALOHA!!

Lindsay Oh my gosh! This place was great! Ok let me start from the beginning. Room is small but very nice. The first night I called Ali’I Rentals offices and told them I had not brought my invitation email and I had no idea what to do to get into the room. The young lady DID NOT make free as dumb as I felt. She was kind and understanding. We got in! The small refrigerator was turned on and it began to leak and not cool. I was to tired to call but called the next day on the way to Pearl Harbor about the frig. When we got back the frig was cranked up and cooling. Great Great service. Remember this is a condo and you are pretty much like at home. You can’t just call up the front desk and ask them to send you something. The room is great for 2 not any more than that. Well stocked kitchen. Big microwave. Stove top heats up No dishwasher. Well stocked bathroom. Great water pressure and never ran cold. Bed comfortable. Good lighting. Elevator was quick and easy. We were on the 8th floor. The patio door was hard to open but we did mind much. Down stairs is where all and I do mean all the tour bus comes to load up. So you have that noise but only with the door open. And early in the morning they have not started so breakfast on the patio was really pleasant for us. The view from our balcony was not the greatest. I mean I could not see California but I could see parts of the ocean. But the location was ideal for walking to Waikiki beach. (One block). But this location does not have parking. Would defiantly use Ali’I Rentals again!!

Great location and great price The location for this unit is great. Literally a minute walk to the beach in the heart of Waikiki. Easy check in information with the application. Did not have any problems with the unit. If you are an outdoors person like I am you can not beat the price and location. I spent most of my time adventuring through the island. If you like luxury this may not be suited for you. If you are staying in Waikiki everything is walking distance and won't need a car. Parking is very expensive and unit does not have parking. You can also take buses, shuttle or tours to all attractions. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Wednesday, April 8, 2015 A fair and honest review, thank you!

spend your money on your holiday not on an expensive hotel room!W If you want to save money and stay in the heart of Waikiki look no further than this condo. It's not 5 star but it doesn't advertise itself to be. It's comfortable for 2 people. It has a well equipped kitchen that we used every morning for breakfast and a couple of dinners. The bathroom is adequate with great hot water. The tv is in a cupboard on the side of the bed which is a little strange but again when you are paying $100-$150 less than the average hotel room you can easily make do. With a couple of minutes walk to Waikiki Beach and the ability to walk anywhere in the main area, this condo is perfectly located. Tip - it is extremely noisy <br/>(buses and rubbish trucks) so if you are sensitive to noise at night take ear plugs. The curtain that covers the sliding glass doors is also very thin and lets a lot of light through. If you are sensitive to light when you sleep it might be advisable to take an eye mask. I would definitely rent here again. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, August 4, 2015 Thanks for the honest review. It really helps our guests get an overall sense of what they're renting. We'll look into getting that thin curtain replaced. Waikiki is a busy city and with that comes the noise. Doesn't matter if you're staying here or a $500/night hotel... noise will be an issue. Anyways... hope to have you back! ALOHA!

Waikiki stay April 2015 The studio was as described. The kitchenette was useful and well stocked. The unit was cozy everything worked out as planned - receipt of the keys, availability of towels, cleaning supplies, toilet paper etc.<br/>However, the unit was not as clean as we would have liked. The carpet just felt "used" and the inside of the kitchen cabinets was somewhat dirty, which prompted us to wash all the dishes we used before we used them. There were enough dishes, cutting boards and pots and pans, however some of them were in pretty bad shape and I was afraid one of the pans may break because of a lose handle (which it thankfully didn't). Also, the pillows were very low quality and we questioned the cleanliness of the sheets as we found a few hairs and lint in them.<br/>Great location with a partial ocean view, very easy to walk to the beach and restaurants. The balcony, however, could benefit from being hosed off (bird poop). Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, August 4, 2015 Thanks so much for the input. The carpet was recently replaced, but we've decided to have it cleaned much more frequently. Seems like the dirt gets tracked onto the carpet very easily in the particular condo.

Good for the price This place was not bad at all. Considering it was surrounded by other hotels in the area that I knew were probably hundreds of dollars more. You could see the ocean from the balcony and from the window right outside the room. My husband and I stayed here for six nights and it served it's purpose very well! We were never really in the room for more than just to sleep and shower anyways because the location provides so much entertainment! It was clean and honestly I have no complaints whatsoever! They even had two boogie boards and two beach chairs on the balcony for the guests to use! We appreciated that! They also had plenty of towels and even beach towels for our use!

Our thoughts on The Seashore 81 Great location! Good partial views if Diamond Head and ocean! 2 minute walk to beach, and all other amenities within walking distance. The property management company was great to deal with, we brought the following issues to their attention upon arrival and they offered to have them taken care of while we were there. Carpet was stained which gave the studio the appearance of being dirty, it was otherwise clean. There are only 2 drawers for clothing in an armoire, which were broken making it a challenge to get your clothes in and out. The top portion of the armoire contained a small T.V. The shower diverter in the faucet was not working properly resulting in low water volume through the shower head. The bathroom is small, the kitchen is good if you do not plan to do alot of cooking as it only has a cook-top, microwave, and small fridge, it is well equipped for those things. It does have a very comfortable, new king-sized bed! We would stay their again, as for the most part it met our needs. As we chose not to have repairs made while there, hopefully they were addressed after our departure. They should consider a dresser with more drawers, and a larger flat screen T.V. to sit on top .

Good Small Room, Great Location, Big Bed Overall things where great with the property. It really is in an amazing location. Our other family member at different hotel usually came to beaches closer to us. The room is nice, but compact, but much of that is contributed to the king bed (the reason we chose it)! My only complaint is the general noise of Waikiki. We could have used the daily trash truck as an alarm both at 6:30AM and 7:00AM. Add to that the frequent tour buses, running and beeping, and it became hard to even take phone calls outside.

Great location We stayed at 81 Seashore for 4 days and the location was great. Close to absolutely everything. The building is old but the suite is renovated and has a great view. It is a bit small but perfect for 2 people. You really don’t need anything more. The only odd thing was the weird stained carpet which you notice as soon as you walk in. It makes you think that everything else must be dirty as well. It wasn’t. Everything was really nice and clean and everything smelled like bleach. The kitchen is also very well equipped and has everything you need. We made a few meals even though it was so easy to just eat out. It is a great place to have as a base while running around town and the price is great.

Small but well stocked.<br/>We did a lot of shopping at the new Sam's club and Wal-mart just behind the mall. A short 20 minute walk. Great way to get some excerise and see something other than Waikiki.<br/>The best asset of all is the location and the view. From the lanai you have Dimond Head in front of you,to the right between some well placed highrises is the ocean. Great morning coffee spot.<br/>The space is smaller than it appears in the photo. Over all 350 square feet or so. <br/>The Haytt garage is across the street. The squeal of tires goes no all hours of the day and late into the night. If you like sleeping with the lunai door open and are a light sleeper using the air is the way to go.<br/>Very early in the a.m....like 4:00 the garbage<br/>trucks start their trash pickup, shortly after that the tour busses line up to take large groups out for the day.<br/>These things didn't really bother us after the first few days, you kind of get used to them.<br/>Waikiki is a city after all. <br/>Over all this was a great spot to base out of for our 2 week stay.<br/>

Inside the Condo much better than the entrance, lobby, elevators The photo depicts an expansive room with open lanai. Actually, it's an extremely compact room with a TV from the 80's, tiny, tube type, barely visible. Street is the parking for BIG tour buses, constant brakes, running engines, just below your lanai which makes it impossible to use the lanai. Building entrance is through a rather dark garage, small lobby, elevators and hallways are dirty. Tenants hanging out in the garage where the washers/dryers are were questionable at best.<br/>Traveling alone, I didn't feel safe until my door was double locked. Air conditioning unit noisy, but you had to keep it running or suffer the bus noise. The staff was extremely nice, right down to the maintenance man Barry, he was terrific. Location is great as far as proximity to the beach and all of Waikiki.

great location, perfect for 10 nights Our stay at seashore was lovely. The location of the apartments is perfect, only a minute or two walk across to the beach. The apartment is a studio but had enough space for our luggage,we brought one large suitcase between the two of us (we are a couple), the only thing I would suggest is a bit more bench space to be able to put things on and perhaps a safe for valuable items. The view of the water is very pleasant, its not an amazing one but still nice! The balcony has plenty of space and a small table and chairs for 2 to eat at. Aircon worked well but was at times a little noisy. kitchenette was there but we didn't end up using it, only thing missing was a kettle to boil water for tea (there is a coffee percolator though). ABC store across the street and another on the next corner near the beach. Only complaints I would have about our stay was that we tried to contact the number we were given for Ali'i Beach Rentals on the day of our arrival and could not get in touch with anyone - just a voicemail, sent email too and no reply. We had flown in early morning on a Sunday which we advised, and wanted to find out what time we could check in when the cleaners were done, so were left waiting with no call about whether we could check in early. We also had problems finding the key and wanted to check with the rental team if we were looking in the right place. Note there is also no luggage storage so you need to arrange to store bags somewhere if you fly in early, we were lucky to store ours around the corner at a hotel but they wouldn't usually take bags from people not stating at the hotel.. Or you can use the airport service for a fee. That said all communication leading up to our stay was satisfactory. We would definitely stay again, the apartment is great value for money and a lot cheaper than the hotels surrounding. Our holiday was great and my man popped the question too! So all in all a very lovely first trip to Hawaii!

"Alii" were great to deal with, we had no problems at all and will definately rent from them again.

overall somewhat disappointed upon arrival Great location! Other than that...<br/>My wife, my daughter and I were disappointed with the constant ant problem. We could leave neither food or wrappings/containers dishes etc<br/>in kitchen area for ANY period of time. They were an uncomfortable distraction upon entering the room. The carpet is in very poor condition. There are ants on the bathroom. The towel rack fixture on the back of the bathroom door is unuseable due to broken/missing parts.<br/>The person(s) who cleans/prepares for incoming guests should be fired or have his/her pay plan reviewed. We SPENT 20 minutes wiping fingerprints and smears off of the microwave, stove top/countertops upon the disappointing arrival. On a good note though, we did get used to these "living" conditions :(<br/>I guess you get what you pay for. It was a cheap deal. Pls e-mail your comments back.

A Great Alternative to Expensive Hotels! A hotel-sized room with a kitchen. It's located one block from the main drag and beach, so convenient to food, restaurants, and the bus. We spend a lot of time on balconies, and this one has a limited view of Diamond Head and the ocean, which was very pleasant. Although it didn't bother us much, there is a lot of noise from tour buses behind the neighboring hotel, garbage trucks and squealing tires from the garage next door. It was very clean, but it needs a little maintenance work (light bulbs, towel bar, freezer door falls off, etc.). Even with that, we had a wonderful time there and would go back again!

A Wonderful Stay at the Seashore #81 We had a wonderful stay at the Seashore #81. The only issue I would like to point out was the difficulty we had accessing the lockbox when we first arrived. There was a Jeep parked right against the wall and it was hard to get to the lockbox. Other than that, the stay was very enjoyable.

Small, yet convenient Booked this rental online through . The pictures are a bit deceiving as far as the size of the rental goes. I was quiet surprised by how small the unit was - but it IS a studio apartment. Not much for storage, or drawers for clothing. On the plus side unit was very close to the beach - you can even catch a glimpse of the ocean off the balcony - and close to all things Waikiki. The unit is located inside a somewhat sketchy looking building, that had a mug shot of some local who was slashing tires of local residents. Cheapest parking we found was at the Waikiki Banyon, located about 2 blocks away, for $15 (24 hours). On street parking is hard to come by. <br/><br/>The carpet needs a good cleaning - it was very discolored and spotty. The bed was huge, and the kitchen had all you needed, if you wanted to do any cooking. Which you shouldn't - since Waikiki has so many restaurants nearby. <br/><br/>PROS: Close to the beach, shopping, dinning and all that Waikiki has to offer. Affordable. <br/><br/>CONS: No parking included, no pool, small accommodations. Building seemed a bit sketchy to me, but secure.

Minor fix would be to change Bedside light bulbs because they won't turn on, lower rack of bathroom fell off my boyfriend placed it back but it's probably still loose . It's a bit noisy with renovations going on in other units, the street noise too but we didn't care we were so busy with activities and slept well after a full day of fun. It's a safe area .

I decided on this unit because of the view, my favorite spot in Hawaii, Diamond Head. This was my second rental from Ali'i Rentals and I will use them again, even though this unit was a big disappointment. The location is close to the beach but it is a very , let's just say, dirty area. The unit itself is much smaller than it looks and needs a good going over. Carpet is very dirty and the unit is so small you have to lay across the foot of the bed to watch tv, or sit in a plastic patio chair. I gave Ali'i a list of a few things that need attention. They did come right over when I called them the first morning I was there. I think if the view of Diamond head wasn't as good as it was I might have left. I made do with the apartment but a good cleaning and a few repairs would make a big difference.

If you want to save money and stay in the heart of Waikiki look no further than this condo. It's not 5 star but it doesn't advertise itself to be. It's comfortable for 2 people. It has a well equipped kitchen that we used every morning for breakfast and a couple of dinners. The bathroom is adequate with great hot water. The tv is in a cupboard on the side of the bed which is a little strange but again when you are paying $100-$150 less than the average hotel room you can easily make do. With a couple of minutes walk to Waikiki Beach and the ability to walk anywhere in the main area, this condo is perfectly located. Tip - it is extremely noisy <br/>(buses and rubbish trucks) so if you are sensitive to noise at night take ear plugs. The curtain that covers the sliding glass doors is also very thin and lets a lot of light through. If you are sensitive to light when you sleep it might be advisable to take an eye mask.

The studio was as described. The kitchenette was useful and well stocked. The unit was cozy everything worked out as planned - receipt of the keys, availability of towels, cleaning supplies, toilet paper etc.<br/>However, the unit was not as clean as we would have liked. The carpet just felt "used" and the inside of the kitchen cabinets was somewhat dirty, which prompted us to wash all the dishes we used before we used them. There were enough dishes, cutting boards and pots and pans, however some of them were in pretty bad shape and I was afraid one of the pans may break because of a lose handle (which it thankfully didn't). Also, the pillows were very low quality and we questioned the cleanliness of the sheets as we found a few hairs and lint in them.<br/>Great location with a partial ocean view, very easy to walk to the beach and restaurants. The balcony, however, could benefit from being hosed off (bird poop).

Direction for check in and check out were outlined very well. Tissue papers, liquid hand soaps, and dishwashing liquid were sufficient enough for the whole stay. Kitchen utensils were complete for cooking. Overall, a two thumbs up! Thank you Susie!

My new hubby and I stayed here for a week, it was small but it had everything needed for a great time in Oahu. If you want to go to waikiki beach on a budget this is the place to go.

Carpet was filthy! Condition of overall condo was poor. Needed updating badly. My wife and I moved out after 1 night even though I had to eat the cost.

We had a wonderful stay at the Seashore #81. The only issue I would like to point out was the difficulty we had accessing the lockbox when we first arrived. There was a Jeep parked right against the wall and it was hard to get to the lockbox. Other than that, the stay was very enjoyable.

Enjoyed our stay at your rental, everything was just as advertised. Can't beat the price for such a great location close to everything. <br/>It was clean, comfortable, nice Hawaiin decor.<br/>Kitchen well equipped with anything you might need.<br/>Obviously Wakiki is noisy 24/7 but the unit itself was quiet.

The Seashore 81 was very clean and had amazing views of the ocean and Diamond Head just as it appeared on the internet. It was the perfect location, close to everything even a bus pick ups for all of our scheduled activities. Would definitely rent this unit again.

This condo is clean, well equipt, and in the perfect location in Waikiki. Everyone we met in the building were friendly, from the building manager to other vacationers or permanent residents. "Alii" were great to deal with, we had no problems at all and will definately rent from them again.

Over all the space is good. The carpet needs to be replaced. White just isn't a great choice for a beach rental. The bath is tiny but workable. New kitchen functions well, the frig needs to have the ice chamber door replaced. Lots of frosh built up.<br/>Great selection of extras. Towels for the beach, lots of kitchen items, iron,ironing board, hair dryer.<br/>Next door are 2 restruants and across for them is an ABC store. Small but well stocked.<br/>We did a lot of shopping at the new Sam's club and Wal-mart just behind the mall. A short 20 minute walk. Great way to get some excerise and see something other than Waikiki.<br/>The best asset of all is the location and the view. From the lanai you have Dimond Head in front of you,to the right between some well placed highrises is the ocean. Great morning coffee spot.<br/>The space is smaller than it appears in the photo. Over all 350 square feet or so. <br/>The Haytt garage is across the street. The squeal of tires goes no all hours of the day and late into t

A hotel-sized room with a kitchen. It's located one block from the main drag and beach, so convenient to food, restaurants, and the bus. We spend a lot of time on balconies, and this one has a limited view of Diamond Head and the ocean, which was very pleasant. Although it didn't bother us much, there is a lot of noise from tour buses behind the neighboring hotel, garbage trucks and squealing tires from the garage next door. It was very clean, but it needs a little maintenance work (light bulbs, towel bar, freezer door falls off, etc.). Even with that, we had a wonderful time there and would go back again!

Great location! Other than that...<br/>My wife, my daughter and I were disappointed with the constant ant problem. We could leave neither food or wrappings/containers dishes etc<br/>in kitchen area for ANY period of time. They were an uncomfortable distraction upon entering the room. The carpet is in very poor condition. There are ants on the bathroom. The towel rack fixture on the back of the bathroom door is unuseable due to broken/missing parts.<br/>The person(s) who cleans/prepares for incoming guests should be fired or have his/her pay plan reviewed. We SPENT 20 minutes wiping fingerprints and smears off of the microwave, stove top/countertops upon the disappointing arrival. On a good note though, we did get used to these "living" conditions :(<br/>I guess you get what you pay for. It was a cheap deal. Pls e-mail your comments back.

Overall things where great with the property. It really is in an amazing location. Our other family member at different hotel usually came to beaches closer to us. The room is nice, but compact, but much of that is contributed to the king bed (the reason we chose it)! My only complaint is the general noise of Waikiki. We could have used the daily trash truck as an alarm both at 6:30AM and 7:00AM. Add to that the frequent tour buses, running and beeping, and it became hard to even take phone calls outside.

Our stay at seashore was lovely. The location of the apartments is perfect, only a minute or two walk across to the beach. The apartment is a studio but had enough space for our luggage,we brought one large suitcase between the two of us (we are a couple), the only thing I would suggest is a bit more bench space to be able to put things on and perhaps a safe for valuable items. The view of the water is very pleasant, its not an amazing one but still nice! The balcony has plenty of space and a small table and chairs for 2 to eat at. Aircon worked well but was at times a little noisy. kitchenette was there but we didn't end up using it, only thing missing was a kettle to boil water for tea (there is a coffee percolator though). ABC store across the street and another on the next corner near the beach. Only complaints I would have about our stay was that we tried to contact the number we were given for Ali'i Beach Rentals on the day of our arrival and could not get in touch with anyone - just a voicemail, sent e

The location was excellent and the apartment had everything that we needed. The only detail was that the frezer didn't make ice BUT we did notify the company (our bad.)We had such a good time that we did not bother with complains. I highly recommend this place. If we go back to Waikiki we will definitly stay here again.

The photo depicts an expansive room with open lanai. Actually, it's an extremely compact room with a TV from the 80's, tiny, tube type, barely visible. Street is the parking for BIG tour buses, constant brakes, running engines, just below your lanai which makes it impossible to use the lanai. Building entrance is through a rather dark garage, small lobby, elevators and hallways are dirty. Tenants hanging out in the garage where the washers/dryers are were questionable at best.<br/>Traveling alone, I didn't feel safe until my door was double locked. Air conditioning unit noisy, but you had to keep it running or suffer the bus noise. The staff was extremely nice, right down to the maintenance man Barry, he was terrific. Location is great as far as proximity to the beach and all of Waikiki.

We stayed this summer at the Seashore and we really like our stay but the condo was really small. The furniture is too big for the space of the room. It was really clean and the location was perfect! There was only beach towels, no other beach in the condo. We have to buy a cooler!?! Because there was no cooler... We leave it for the next guest because we think it's disapointing when the condo you rent is not really equipped for vacation...

We stayed at 81 Seashore for 4 days and the location was great. Close to absolutely everything. The building is old but the suite is renovated and has a great view. It is a bit small but perfect for 2 people. You really don’t need anything more. The only odd thing was the weird stained carpet which you notice as soon as you walk in. It makes you think that everything else must be dirty as well. It wasn’t. Everything was really nice and clean and everything smelled like bleach. The kitchen is also very well equipped and has everything you need. We made a few meals even though it was so easy to just eat out. It is a great place to have as a base while running around town and the price is great.

One never knows what your experience when you go of the beaten path and make all your own travel arrangements. While the building was a little aged, the condo was nice and we enjoyed it. Great location to many eating establishments, and to attractions. The local folks we met on the street were always helpful and curtious. The Seashore 81 is a block off the main drag which ment for a quiet street. 3 major resorts were literly next door four a person to enjoy without the high price of having to stay there. We always felt safe and secure regardless of the time of night. An ABC store is located just a half a block west for essentails and a Food Pantry (a regular grocery store) is just a couple of blocks away. A car rental place just around the corner and scooter rentals within a short walk. For the 2 of us we enjoyed the stay and would stay there again.

Great location! Good partial views if Diamond Head and ocean! 2 minute walk to beach, and all other amenities within walking distance. The property management company was great to deal with, we brought the following issues to their attention upon arrival and they offered to have them taken care of while we were there. Carpet was stained which gave the studio the appearance of being dirty, it was otherwise clean. There are only 2 drawers for clothing in an armoire, which were broken making it a challenge to get your clothes in and out. The top portion of the armoire contained a small T.V. The shower diverter in the faucet was not working properly resulting in low water volume through the shower head. The bathroom is small, the kitchen is good if you do not plan to do alot of cooking as it only has a cook-top, microwave, and small fridge, it is well equipped for those things. It does have a very comfortable, new king-sized bed! We would stay their again, as for the most part it met our needs. As we chose not

This little studio isn't a place you will want to spend a lot of time, but the location is good. It's noisy as the tour buses park on the street below. Also the curtains are not thick/dark enough to make it black at night. Would be a lot better with proper curtains. Otherwise quite well equipped. Oh yeah, would be better yet if it had a blender.
