Awesome Under the circumstances having to cope with COVID-19 and the "New Norm" The stay was exactly what was needed. The owner (Kai) of Alii Beach Rentals went out of his way to make sure that we were treated well. A reputation is so important. This was a referral from a friend. We were not disappointed.<br/>We will be back!

A Very Nice Condo It was great to be on the 36th floor because of the quietness. Elevators are very fast. Enjoyed the mountain view. Did not need the air conditioner as would only get sun on one corner of the lanai and the condo was cool at night for sleeping.<br/>Beds were comfortable and furniture adequate. The kitchen faucet needs to be replaced as leaks quite a bit at the base and when turned on water splashes onto the counter and mirror. The pool, 2 hot tubs, children's play area and BBQ area are great amenities. I would definitely stay in this condo again. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Monday, February 18, 2019 Thank you for this great review. We have noted this feedback and will have the sink looked at for sure.

Terrible Terrible experience ... Property was run down and maintained and was in dirty condition on our arrival after a few days settling in from being jetlagged we experienced nothing but drama with our apartment the management team did not take a complaint seriously so if you book with these guys make sure you check at the property out before you go in and stay because all the different units have different features and if you are unlucky to get a bad unit you&#x2019;re stuck there for the duration of your stay and there&#x2019;s nothing they will do about it and most people would&#x2019;ve paid a fortune to stay there as Hawaii is quite expensive Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Thursday, May 9, 2019 We apologize you did not enjoy your stay at this vacation rental. We made multiple trips to show you how to work the electric stove and when we tried to remedy the minor issues, you declined.

The Kitchen cabinets & appliances need updating (a dishwasher would be nice), but kept our food cold & we didn't cook. New Carpet is a plus! The mattresses need either a 3"-4" thick mattress pad or new mattresses. If you like HARD non cushion mattresses, you are in luck! Sheets with more thread count would be a nice & better pillows for sure are needed! The tub/shower/toilet area are on the smaller size. It was nice to have the sink & mirror outside the door. AC worked great! Beautiful views & sunrises from the Lanai!! Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, March 19, 2019 Thanks Kim!

Thanksgiving stay First night, fire in building, evacuated down 36 floors & back up 2 1/2 hrs later, as elevators were blocked due to fire on 30th floor. Review not contributing to fire, just mentioning when renting a higher floor condo. This particular condo, needs updating, although new carpeting, bed mattresses are hard and uncomfortable, pillows, flat, not a good nights sleep for a week. Futon in living room, old, difficult to sit on. Kitchen stove, electric, old. Bathroom fan not operating. Building itself is old and dated. Mini store & employees at front desk not friendly. Pay a bit more and get an updated Condo, this rental would be fine for a few days, not a week stay. Rental company is great, professional, responds to maintenance needs (outlets were coming out of wall), reservations were easy, great company, will rent from the property management again, however not this particular unit. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Wednesday, November 28, 2018 Everyone was safe and thats the main thing during the small fire and the building had it resolved quickly. The beds are going to be replaced, thank you for your input. We have added the new carpet, flooring, and re-glazed the bathtub. Our maintenance has been to the condo to fix the bathroom fan. The appliances are set to be replaced too.

Affordable - not as nice as pictures. The location of this rental was good. Located in the heart of Waikiki. Just a few blocks from the beach. We rented a vehicle for our stay so it was also nice to have a parking garage, however, there is no specific parking slot for each unit, which was inconvenient when we wanted to come and go, it took time to find a parking space in the garage which was very narrow. The unit itself looked like the flooring was new (lamanent/carpet), an old review complained about the flooring but that is no longer an issue. It is spacious, so if you want someplace for 1-4 people it is a good spot, but it is not as nice as the pictures portray. The kitchen appliances seem to work (didn&#x2019;t try the stove) but are very old, and the bathroom tub needs to be replaced, it is worn down and discolored. The view was nice (facing east). You&#x2019;re on the 36th floor so the noise is not an issue, but it does take forever for the elevators so be prepared when going up and down to be waiting. The beds were not comfortable, wire spring mattress and pillows are thin. Te closet has beach towels, beach chairs and other pool items to use which was nice. Lastly, when checking out they ask that you wash any used dishes and take out the trash which we found confusing, since you pay for a $129 cleaning fee, the website And flyer they put in your room say two different things (flyer said cleaning fee is only for them to do your dirty linens at the end and not cleaning overall). Overall, if you have to be on the Waikiki strip I would say this is a convenient location that is not horrible. But if we found ourselves loving North Shore way more than Waikiki beach. Waikiki has chain food and shopping malls but North shore had local food/food trucks, it was relaxing, cute shops, snorkeling, and beach spots (water is rough in some areas), and the airbnbs/vrbo are much cheaper and nicer! Next time we will be staying north, but again, if you want to be on the west coast this place is pretty decent. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Wednesday, October 10, 2018 The guest is right, we have new carpet, new vinyl flooring, and the bath tub has been reglazed after his stay. We will have new photos as soon as possible. Waikiki is a city, it has everything you might expect a city to have. North shore is the country and an hour away, its beautiful and tranquil, except during high traffic times. Waikiki is on the South Eastern part of Oahu, the West side is about an hour away. Just some helpful info for anyone confused.

Bed and even the futon were uncomfortable. Roaches very common. Kitchen faucet was hard to shut off. A/C flooded the lanai when used. Light bulbs burned out. Note to future guests - if you happen to rent 2 or more scooters instead of a car the parking attendants would want you to pay for the additional permit at $20/night even though 2 scooters fit in one scooter space. BBQ pits cost to use. Dated and worn. Not cleaned very well. Things/food left on floor under and behind.

Overall good unit for the price The unit description is accurate and well maintained. It had all the utensils, cookware, appliances and linens available to use. The unit was clean but the carpet could use a deep clean or even replaced. I didn't need to call maintenance for any issues. The fire alarm sounded around midnight one evening and though it was a false alarm the idea of walking down 36 flights of stairs was dreadful especially because it was so late. We had a pleasant stay even though the fire alarms went off twice in our two week stay.

Nice condo - great location We stayed 8 days, and enjoyed each one.<br/>It's a decent condo just a quick walk from the beach, has a beautiful view of the hills, and plenty of parking.<br/>The partition did a decent job of blocking light and noise.<br/>It doesn't have a dishwasher, and had a couple of maintenance needs that I let Ali'i know about, but but the lack of a dishwasher isn't much of a problem if you don't plan on eating inside as much as we did.<br/>In case the Marco Polo fire (an entirely different building at least a mile down the road) concerned you: the Banyan Tower II building, at least, just upgraded its fire alarm system, planned since before that fire, and has a fire suppression sprinkler system.

Stay at Waikiki Banyan 3603 tower 2 floor B (Mountain View) I have stayed at the Banyan many times always Tower 1. Tower 2 facing north is much quieter and unobstructed view from higher floors. This unit needs some money injected for many different upgrades. I was told that the carpet is fairly new but it is stained & many snags just unsightly. The caulking around the sink & tub needs replacing, bathroom ceiling fan does not work creating damp smell. The shower curtain was mouldy, when I contacted Rita at Alii Beach she had a new one installed immediately by Mike the maintenance fellow who was very nice and helpful. The vertical blinds in the bedroom are missing panels, we just left them open. The Futon was not comfortable to sit on as a couch. If you are looking for the WOW affect when walking in to the room this is not the unit. <br/>You get what you pay for so for the price this unit was just okay, we all have different expectations.<br/>I have & will continue to recommend Waikiki Banyan and Alii Beach Rentals they provide a very good service.

Beautiful Mountain View The view was beautiful and the bed set up perfect for our group - queen, twin and futon double. Beds were a little firm and the unit had a little bit of a worn and dated feeling that could easily be improved with a tropical futon cover and maybe some new flooring, like the unit we also occupied next door. The mirrors on the wall were fantastic, and made the unit feel spacious! In pictures at dinner time it looked like we had a convention going on in the room! LOL! The heating elements on the range did not fit well in this unit and could not lay flat. We could only use 2 of the 4 elements, which ended up being adequate for us when combined with the oven. We loved having the unit next door as well, which had a newer tropical decor and better vacation feel, and allowed us access to kitchen items we did not have in this unit. Easy walk to the beach, and close to our old and new favorite haunts - Tiki Bar and Grill, Barefoot Cafe, Maui Brewing Co, and of course Dukes! Plus Honolulu Cookie Company for gifts to bring home :) PS - we had trouble with the lock code, and maintenance was able to help us with an easy phone call :) Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Thursday, June 28, 2018 6/28/18: NEW CARPET IS IN THE CONDO!!

Another great stay at the Waikiki Banyon This has become our favorite place to stay in Oahu. The units are comfortable, parking is a real plus, and the staff have always been helpful.

We only had 1 complaint - and really it was not major - the coffee maker did not work and there was no response from the company when we reported it.

In particular the water flow from the shower was vey poor and the noise from the fridge was actually louder than the air conditioning. On the plus side it was clean, relatively cheap by Waikiki standards and had a great view of the mountains.

Great location, wonderful view, spacious condo - A+ I originally reserved another property two months ago, but the owner abruptly cancelled my reservation just 10 days before the trip, and I had to find a replacement quickly. The management company for this property was prompt to my inquiry and I feel fortunate to find this condo. Their check-in and check-out directions were detailed and precise. We had a problem with wi-fi, but the agent responded and fixed the problem immediately on Fourth of July. We were very impressed by the extraordinary service. The condo is conveniently located within a block and a half from Waikiki Beach. The room is spacious enough for 4 adults. Being on the 36th floor, I was fascinated by the daytime and evening view (unobstructed) of the mountain. The kitchen had plenty of supplies and equipment for light or serious cooking. The condo also had beach towels and inflatables. It also provided free parking which was a big plus for us. I strongly recommend this condo.

Good location. Good location. The unit is clean but it would be nice to have new beddings (comfortable beds). The kitchen and the bathroom also need upgrades. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, August 4, 2015 Thanks for the review. We'll have the bed inspected to see if it needs replacing per your comments. Yes there are aspects of this condo that are a bit dated. With that being said... if you're looking for a well priced, clean condo, near the ocean, great views, managed by a professional company this is the place for you! ALOHA!!

A rainbow trip This trip was a lot of firsts for my almost 19 year old daughter and myself. First trip to Hawaii, first time driving a convertible and first time staying at a VRBO. It was a trip to remember. Our trip started out getting a vehicle upgrade to a beetle convertible at no extra charge and then upon arriving at the condo and opening the blinds seeing a spectacular view and a rainbow from the 36th floor. The property had the basic amenities and furniture but that was all that we needed. The location was perfect, 2 blocks from the beach, 5 minute drive from our favourite poke place. It was really all that you could ask for. Property was clean although some of the appliances were dated. Could probably use some newer dishes, cutlery and pots and pans although we didn't use most of them. The added bonus was the free parking. It was so nice not having to worry about finding parking elsewhere or pay enormous rates. Overall, I would recommend this place. Enjoyed seeing a rainbow everyday out of our balcony. We will definitely come back.

Enjoyed it, could have been much better! We've stayed at Waikiki Banyan several times & loved it, location is perfect. This is our first experience with Alii Beach rentals. Mike the maintenance guy is very helpful. Parking was nice. We had 3603 for 2 weeks and 3601 for 1 week. Overall, it was ok experience. 3603 needs major updating. The AC leaked a continual puddle of water on the lanai directly outside of the sliding door. The bathroom light didn't always come on, bathroom fan stopped working. Mike got us a hair dryer. The beds are extremely uncomfortable, the futon was great. Beach towels were great, we had 1 rusty old beach chair & thought we would have more beach stuff. Flat screen TV is nice, the remote works poorly. 4 rolls of toilet paper for 2 weeks doesn't cut it. Had to buy bar soap, paper towels, toilet paper and a few other things. Vertical blinds are in bad shape. The water shut off every Tuesday from 9am-4:30pm doesn't work, especially when it's been happening for months and the management company is responsible to inform guests. The notice came about 4pm the day before. Pest spray the morning that we arrived doesn't work when you arrive at 1am. All 3 of us staying in 3603 got violently sick for about 24 hours. Our son and his wife were in 3601 and did not get sick, however we all ate the same things. We did a deep clean and narrowed it down to something in the until that infected us. If updates are completed and it's cleaned well, it would be worth it. Response from Alii Beach Rentals ; Tuesday, August 11, 2015 This is an amazing review, we really appreciate it! We are glad Mike was able to help. Lets address what we can: 1. We will service the a/c and fix the maintenance issues 2. If its time to replace the beds, we can do that 3. The "beach stuff" is not required as inventory in our units and we won't advertise it, but we leave what previous guest leave behind as a convenience if its in good condition 4. The bathroom "Amenities" are meant to get you started, but if you have an extended stay, then guest are responsible for toiletries from then on 5. Building Management and Vacation Management are 2 separate entities and we try to communicate with them the best we can. Some things our out of our control. I would hope that if you declined the pest spray, then they would have rescheduled. We will speak with them. It sounds like, in all, your family had a good time in Hawaii and the next time will be better! We will take care of our issues on our end here at Ali'i Beach Rentals.

Great Condo Experience! Our first time renting a Condo and we truly enjoyed the experience. Room was clean and spacious. Other than the bathroom. We were most impressed with the kitchen utilities. I believe the pots, pans and dishware were new. We used the blender. It was nice to be able to cook anything! You could use the divider doors between the sitting room and bedroom. Great feature. We prefered the Ocean view but our view was pretty amazing because there was 3 windows to look out of. The only disappointment was the shower head, hardly any pressure or water. The towels were also new but I recommend using old towels because we were constanting picking off the fluff from our faces. The pool and hot tub was great! Location was perfect, close to shopping and many restaurants. We were only minutes from the Waikiki beach. No parking fees and free WIFI. Nice to have Flat TV screen. It would have been nice to have a clock radio. Lobby staff was friendly and helpful.<br/>Thanks and we will surely be back!

The polite description of the condo is that it is tired. In fact with a few exceptions the whole place furniture and fittings needs renovated. In particular the water flow from the shower was vey poor and the noise from the fridge was actually louder than the air conditioning. On the plus side it was clean, relatively cheap by Waikiki standards and had a great view of the mountains. We also liked the combination lock on the door meaning we did not need to carry a key around with us.<br/><br/>We would/will book through Ali'i Beach Rentals again but not this condo.

The condo was neat, clean and close to everything. We loved the location and the view. However, we left an email stating the microwave did not work and it was never fixed during our stay.

Was not impressed with water shut-offs on Tues 9-4 and Thurs 9-2 both weeks we were there. We should get a refund for those days of inconvenience.

For the price, the condo was good value. It was clean but the place was showing its age. The double bed and the futon were comfortable but the twin bed was on the hard side. The bathroom and kitchen need updating. Parking was great. Wifi had issues but we were able to use nextdoor's.

I originally reserved another property two months ago, but the owner abruptly cancelled my reservation just 10 days before the trip, and I had to find a replacement quickly. The management company for this property was prompt to my inquiry and I feel fortunate to find this condo. Their check-in and check-out directions were detailed and precise. We had a problem with wi-fi, but the agent responded and fixed the problem immediately on Fourth of July. We were very impressed by the extraordinary service. The condo is conveniently located within a block and a half from Waikiki Beach. The room is spacious enough for 4 adults. Being on the 36th floor, I was fascinated by the daytime and evening view (unobstructed) of the mountain. The kitchen had plenty of supplies and equipment for light or serious cooking. The condo also had beach towels and inflatables. It also provided free parking which was a big plus for us. I strongly recommend this condo.

This one bedroom condo was wonderful. Very clean and comfortable. Awesome view of the mountainside being on the 36th floor. Also, had issues with the parking pass but the staff took care of the problem immediately with no hassle. Will definitely be booking this room again when i get the chance!

We were in Hawaii for a family wedding, therefore several of us had rooms at this location. I stayed with my sister, mother and 8 month old daughter. Even though our apartment wasn't as renovated as some of the others our family were staying in, ours was the most spacious and had the most natural light. We loved our apartment and would choose to stay there again.

This has become our favorite place to stay in Oahu. The units are comfortable, parking is a real plus, and the staff have always been helpful. The concierge on this last visit was a real miracle worker - getting us ATV rides. We only had 1 complaint - and really it was not major - the coffee maker did not work and there was no response from the company when we reported it. We did finally call back and get someone but basically had no coffee maker. Being clever you can use it like a drip pot and just pour hot water through the top.

The Carpet needs a deep cleaning and the bathroom need re-grouting. There was mold around the bathroom tub. The furniture was a bit dated. The location was great.

Amazing views and perfect location. Just a couple tings. The stove could be replaced.. it is falling apart. The bathtub could also use an upgrade.. it is rusted and not that welcoming.

Generally the room is good, but I strongly suggest the owner to change the ref, it is too old and makes a lot of noise. I can not sleep since I sleep in the living room.<br/><br/>You can save a lot of energy by a new ref

We booked this unit after viewing the video thinking it was an accurate description, however this particular unit was older than photos appeared ... Not 100 percent clean, with food in the cupboards and refrigerator and bathroom toiletries in vanity cupboard.. The sheets didn't completely feel clean and the beds were NOT perfectly made. I reported this to the beach rental property managers the girl was very helpful and Apologised.. " contract cleaners must have new people" - she did offer to have cleaners come over but I refused. I simply asked about the $200 cleaning fee I would have expected better service upon arrival. After arriving back in Australia I was surprised to receive just a $50 reimbursement. I would stay in this building again. But through another agent and another particular unit I think. The location was great no problem getting public transport etc. Friendly people.

Stove & fridge are VERY old and beyond fixing. The tub was rusted and had been patched in places. Overall, the unit has not been kept up and was definitely not cleaned well before our arrival. The cleaning company did come back after we complained but there are a lot of things that need to be updated. We did like the location, the view and the basic layout of the unit though. Planning to rebook for next year, pending some major changes.

After a 20 day's stay in this apartment we were pretty satisfied with everything. Ok, it could need a little upgrade (kitchen and bathroom) but everything was working well. The view from the 36th floor was terrific! Mahalo to the property management for negotiating a compensation for the ongoing construction work with the water pipes in the apartment.<br/><br/>

The view was amazing. The unit is very dated and in dire need of new beds, linens and furniture! It was poorly equipped and just felt dirty. We just couldn't take our shoes off…the elevators we dreadfully slow and the pool was never open as there is a huge remission going on in tower one and completely surrounded by scaffolding and tarps. The bbq area was impossible to use as people cook and take over the area for the evening! The front desk would not acknowledge us as we were not their clients. My husband went down and asked for change for laundry and was point blank told no because they do not service guest that were not booked through the Ashton. So ridiculous!!!<br/><br/>I was told at time of booking that the unit was "newly remodelled and furnished but I can assure it has not been. The tub has rust at the drain and what appeared to be mold on the tile walls.<br/><br/>Great location if the accommodation isn't a huge priority!!<br/><br/><br/>

I would recommend the owner of the unit to upgrade the chairs, stove or shower head. It was very old and out of style. I would come back to this place again in a few years hoping that the owner would upgrade the unit a little bit.

Room was on the 36th floor - had a fantastic, beautiful view of the mountain behind us and the neighborhood lights up the hill - BEAUTIFUL!!! Every sunrise was pretty - and the afternoon rainshowers in the valleys and rainbows were beautiful as well. Fantastic view - fantastic off season price for a family of four!

Our first time renting a Condo and we truly enjoyed the experience. Room was clean and spacious. Other than the bathroom. We were most impressed with the kitchen utilities. I believe the pots, pans and dishware were new. We used the blender. It was nice to be able to cook anything! You could use the divider doors between the sitting room and bedroom. Great feature. We prefered the Ocean view but our view was pretty amazing because there was 3 windows to look out of. The only disappointment was the shower head, hardly any pressure or water. The towels were also new but I recommend using old towels because we were constanting picking off the fluff from our faces. The pool and hot tub was great! Location was perfect, close to shopping and many restaurants. We were only minutes from the Waikiki beach. No parking fees and free WIFI. Nice to have Flat TV screen. It would have been nice to have a clock radio. Lobby staff was friendly and helpful.<br/>Thanks and we will surely be back!
