"lovely scenery
I was moved by the wonderful scenery.
I want to stay again!
Thank you."

"Yuko Okuyama
We had good time.
We had nice view, nice room.
We approciated Paul-san because he helped us.
We miss the key for suitecase. He opened it."
Sep 19, 2018 - Yuko O., Ota-ku, Tokyo

The view and location were excellent!
However, this time the pillowcase on the bed was smelly and I washed it,but I couldn't get rid of the smell."

"We love the Waikiki Shore!
We have stayed in a few different units at the Waikiki Shore and, as with the others, this one was lovely! The unit is updated, clean, well-supplied, and everything is in great condition. Very comfortable bed and living room furniture. The ocean view is amazing - perfect spot to watch the Friday night fireworks! We appreciate being on the beach and able to snorkel right in front of the condo. This location is ideal for an evening stroll down the beach path to the Hilton Village and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. We enjoyed Happy Hour with ocean views from the Halekulani and Lulu's, dinners at the Cheesecake Factory and Tommy Bahama's, and Hawaiian music and dancing at the Royal Hawaiian. We have booked through Captain Cook Resorts several times and have always had excellent service from the staff, with special thanks to Paul for helping us with our most recent bookings! We would definitely recommend this property."

"Well equipped and a great view
I’ve stayed here for four straight years and will be coming back, so the following details were confirmed each year. THE PROS: Kudos to the owner for converting the balcony to part of the room. It makes for the most spacious one-bedroom in the entire building and greatly enhances the view. The furniture is excellent and plentiful and the 60”4K TV is outstanding. Analon cookware, gas stovetop, ice maker, quality dishes, beach chairs are great. A large frypan is needed. THE CONS: Bed sags badly, like sleeping in a hammock. It was bad 5 years ago, so it must be over 10 years old. Pillows are awful, thick, springy foam. The floor is white tile but leaves your feet or sock bottoms black within a couple of hours. Capt Cook says they mop it but that’s not enough.$180 cleaning fee is excessive for the work done but probably prevailing for the area. The oven temp control is faulty to the low side. OVERALL: We love this place and hope for a new bed someday. Property manager, Paul Tucker, does an excellent job every year."

"A Stay In Paradise
This is our second vacation in this amazing condo. A well appointed condo in a beachfront position with a breathtaking view. There is a reason we have stayed at Waikiki Shore in #1208 twice in two years, because it is the most relaxing stay due to the fact it’s home away from home. We couldn’t ask for any more!"

"Amazing View!
The location of this condo is excellent. The condo was better in real life than in the pictures. My wife and I spent 8 beautiful days here. We would highly recommend staying here. "

"Wonderful Waikiki
We have visited Hawaii annually for several years, many times to Oahu. We stayed for 6 nights at this property in June and it was great. The condo is in good condition, plenty of room, with an updated kitchen that we used often and we had enough room to invite friends over and do a Father's Day brunch. View was wonderful, location is great. Having a parking spot was a huge bonus. The beach outside has more coral than over near the Sheraton and Royal Hawaiian so more care is needed when bodysurfing. The one glitch we dealt with was that we got locked out without our phones our last day despite making arrangements through Reservations as was posted on info sheet for a late check out. Fortunately the building management office did have a contact number for one of the property managers at Captain Cook who took care of this. It was a definite stressor, I would suggest calling the property manager, Paul, directly as Reservations had not communicated to him. We are already planning a return next Spring, highly likely will try to book this property again. "

"Fabulous room!
This is a fantastic room with great facilities and an awesome view and location. Could not recommend highly enough. Just perfect."

"Best choice ever! Thanks!
It was my first time to visit Hawaii so I pay attention to our lodging. I heard most hotels in Waikiki are a kind of old-fashioned but Waikiki Shore was really great!

Short step from the beach, no more than that. If you go out the back door, you can step on sand on Waikiki.

View was fantastic, the furniture was very comfortable and good-looking.
They have almost all kinds of cooking equipment, very convenient kitchen.
They have even beach chairs and parasols.

There are many popular restaurants(e.g. Shore bird restaurant, Roy's restaurant) near this accommodation, and Starbucks next building.

There are also great shops there. Chanel, Gucci, T galleria and Royal Hawaiian Center et cetra.

It was truly best choice ever, I missed Hawaii and the Waikiki Shore.

My whole family loved it. So maybe we can reunited at Waikiki Shore soon.
We really hope so.

On and my manager Paul, he is very kind and helpful. Thank you so much.
Feb 12, 2017 - Hyeseong J., Whitestone, NY

It was first time for us to stay Waikiki Shore. We stayed at hotels in Honolulu before. But this cond was much better than hotels. The location is convenient,the ocean view is wonderful,the property is clean. And we appreciate manager man's kindness."

"Stunning View!
We have been coming to the Waikiki for over 10 years and have stayed in many condos. This one is our fave! absolutely gorgeous, very clean, good general supplies, with plenty of space. We were well looked after by right from the first inquiry,. Can't beat Waikiki Shore for location, we will be returning to your beautiful condo....Mahalo..Virginia& Andrew"

"The perfect condo - we will be back!!!
Position ... Views.... Comfort .... Extremely well equipped condo and great ease with arrival assistance.. I loved this condo .. I have stayed in this complex before but this condo is perfect .... We will be back but next time for a longer stay ... 4 nights was definitely not long enough "

"A wonderful place with a great location to stay in the heart of Waikiki
My partner and I stayed there for our vacation to celebrate our anniversary. It was a wonderful location, with the most fantastic views of the ocean and the front receipt for the Friday night fireworks. I am a designer so I am pretty picky when it comes to decore. It was clean beachy and very comfortable.
I think there are a few things that you could do to take it to the next level as far as a higher end vacation rental. Replace the Motel 6 bar soap with higher end body lotion, shampoo, conditioner, have some type of greeting card with chocolates or flowers welcoming I guess. I just think it adds a very nice touch when you arrive and to enjoy your stay. Other than that it was fantastic."

"Perfect location!
We loved our condo @ Waikiki Shore and it was exactly as depicted on the website. You literally walked out onto the sand where all services were immediately available and that view.....simply stunning in all respects at any time of the day and night. The sliding doors that open to the railing are awesome.
The location is absolutely spot on being the last hotel before the park area and then the Hilton with the lagoon and fireworks being in direct sight and a perfect walking path and beach. Brilliant.
So close to all the shopping and restaurants and everything that is excellent about Waikiki. The steak shack at the base of the hotel was a favourite of ours and provided several enjoyable meals and would recommend trying them to anyone. The Shorebird next door was fun for a late snack and drink and the karaoke was entertaining as well.
Thank you Paul for making our arrival very welcoming. The condo was very secure and the departure procedure simple and we made good use of the car park which was very user friendly.

"The splendor that was far beyond expectation
I think that you are moved with the blue of the sea of Waikiki and scenery of Diamond Head to see from approach before entering the room.
The room is cleaned neatly, and the floor of the marble raises a feeling of cleanliness more.
Four of six pieces of window were completely released, and seeing from a big opening of almost 4m, feeling soft wind, I forgot that time passed.
In addition, it was good that a beach chair or floating bodyboard,palasol were prepared."

"Home away from home
Another wonderful stay in 1208. Best location in Waikiki, with amazing views. The unit is spacious and comfortable and has everything you need. I can't wait to go back."

"Beautiful condo, lovely views
We had a great stay at this condo. The Captain Cook management and staff were very responsive and easy to communicate with. The location is within walking to beach, shops and resataurants. The furniture was comfortable and the layout open and modern, best suited for a couple or family. Kitchen items and beach gear were well stocked. We will be back!"
Feb 11, 2016 - Jerry C., Calgary, Alberta

"Bright, airy and great views!
Really enjoyed our stay there in the spacious airy condo. Checking to checkout process were very easy, and we really appreciated having the CaptainCook app on your smart phone to help us! We would definitely stay here again and recommend anyone to stay here. "

"A great stay
We had a great stay in this condo and would stay here again. The condo was very comfortable and fully stocked with kitchen amenities and even beach accessories. It even came with a parking space! Paul was great as well. Seeing that we had two teenagers - a boy and a girl, he hunted down an air mattress so the teens could have their own beds."

"1st time in Honolulu
Excellent accommodation and location"
Jun 10, 2015 - Brendan C., Bray, Co Wicklow

"Waikiki Shore #1208, Feb 2015
The unit could hardly have been better. Every aspect of the unit is above par. The bed is better than usual, the furniture sets a theme and is very nice. The television is better than a rental unit deserves. The kitchen is very well appointed with excellent quality items and everything is there. The appliances are new and nice. The location is as good as it gets in Waikiki, located right on one of the nicest parts of the beach and the quiet and privacy provided by the park next door is a godsend. The view is beautiful from both sides of the unit and the underground parking is the icing on the cake. Would have to nitpick to list any faults. Would definitely return to this unit again."

"Stunning Condo on the Beach!
Wonderful! We loved the unit and the location was perfect. It was well furnished and even had beach towels and chairs. The view is spectacular. It was easy to walk to restaurants and the beach was right outside our door. It was great to have a space to park our rental car."
Mar 16, 2015 - Barbara T., Wilmette, Illinois

"Didn't Meet Expectations
We chose this condo because it was clearly advertised as having free long distance to US/Canada, a working washer/dryer, and a parking spot. There was NO free long distance, and the washer was broken until the morning we left. The parking was fine. No storage containers for leftover food either. The condo was adequately clean, but the bathroom floor was not clean and the tub had a film of scum. We found a button and tie wrap in the garbage disposal which was making a strange noise. The furnishings were OK, and the view was amazing. Paul was awesome as always, and did his best to help with our concerns. Probably wouldn't rent this unit again. "

"Spacious. Amazing view. Right on the beach and heart of Waikiki.
The management was always available and helpful, thank you Paul and everyone at Captain Cooks.

Explanations for the three and four stars:
General condition--only one of the two elevators in the building worked for the duration of our stay. So everyone in the building, including housekeeping with their big carts, could only use one elevator.

Netflix logged us out twice, and we had to ask management come to the apartment to log us back in. Problem was fixed pretty quickly, at most half a day. It's just that we don't get these shows in Japan so after a day on the beach or in the middle of the night when I wanted to catch up on an episode and I couldn't, I was bummed. Don't know why Netflix logged us out.

Cleanliness--this is a very clean property, satisfied with everything except the shower drain didn't drain very well, this is a big deal for me and the reason I gave this category three stars. The management I believe used something like drainall to try to fix it the second time they came to help log us back into netflix. Still the situation hadn't improved a lot. On one afternoon, previous to the drainall, it drained quickly but that was just that one time. No idea why though.

Other: big points that the rental comes with a parking lot. We drove everywhere.
Right on the beach. We could hear the waves at night. Even though it's located at the heart of Waikiki, it's a very quiet property. We had the window open often and it was peaceful even during the day.
Many dining options nearby.

The view itself is worth the money.

Keep in mind daily housekeeping is your responsibility. With all the sand from the beach we were sweeping or vacuuming regularly. "

We loved our stay very very much and are looking forward to staying again.
Great views. Great location Thank you for letting us share your little piece of paradise :):)xx"

"Fantastic Condo on the Beach
Beautifully updated property in a great location. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this condo except that it might make it more difficult for us to re-book next year."
Apr 09, 2014 - Joe S., Chandler, AZ

"An amazing unit, I'll be back.
This condo was more than we ever expected. When we arrived the concierge I believe his name is Randy, was very professional and helped us get checked in right away. Arriving at our room our eyes were immediately drawn to the skyline and ocean view. The view was beautiful. This unit is on the 12th floor and has a great view of Ft. Duresey and the beach. Very peaceful. The kitchen was very nice,full size appliances and enough dishes and pots and pans for most any meal. The bed were comfortable and the unit was very quiet for sleeping. I can't say enough about the view.The only negative is the departure cleaning fee is excessive. Other than that, entire trip was great and we can't wait to return."

"Perfect, but a little disappointing
Mar 10, 2014 - Andrea S., Shaw Island, Washington

"Great location and great view!
Great central location with a perfect view of the weekly fireworks at the Hilton as well as the beautiful sunsets. Yes the furniture was dated but in no way detracted from the location and our enjoyment of the rental. Very close to sites and sounds of the main shopping district. Also great to not have another highrise looking into our rental - absolute privacy. We loved that the wall of windows could be completely opened to expose our unit to the fresh air daily - felt like we were living outside! Thanks again."

we loved the location of the apartment...
the mattress is in need of replacement or at minimun it could use a foam topper...

"Awesome location
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Waikiki Shores; All personal was courteous and helpful. Location was very convenient,and the view was great."
Aug 31, 2011 - John & Ann W., Paradise Valley, TX

"New items needed
The accomodation badly needs a new television and cooker. The television is very out of date and uncomfortable to watch. The oven is VERY difficult to regulate (no temperature visible) with the resulting burnt food. Happy to see a new washer/dryer installed and revamped shower. The whole kitchen needs replacing. It is very out of date.
I do like the size of the room and had no problem with there being no lanais as it feels like the whole apartment is a lanais...very nice. It may be rather hot in the summer as there is no air con. Not a problem in winter months."
