201 Ohua Ave, Waikiki

This large condo complex is good for families. There’s even a playground and basketball court next to the pool on the sixth floor, and when kids under 12 arrive, they’re given a beach-related grab bag. If you’re in Tower 2, be aware that some of your “ocean view” may be dominated by Tower 1, if you have a room directly facing that tower.

Aston’s rooms (main agent listed) have been upgraded to a standard look (nothing to rave about, but they’re OK). There’s one thing that got under our skin. They have BBQ grills available, but you’ll have to bring quarters, because they’re coin-operated. Yeah, it’s minor, but it’s annoying. 1/1s (535 sq. ft.) are $405–$485. Hope you did much better.

Koko Resorts is the second listed on-site agent. Their room rates start at about $110 and up per night. All units can be viewed online. Some are good, some fair, but for the money, they are a Solid Gold Value, and they give discounts for longer stays. Optional housekeeping service for a fee. No room safe, but there’s one in the office. They charge a cleaning fee, but they have free Wi-Fi in rooms and free parking. They also lend beach and sports gear such as basketballs, surfboards, etc., for free, so you’ll have to weigh the options. 3- or 5-night minimum for their units.

What Readers Have to Say

“I just wanted to write to tell you that your Hawaii guidebooks are the best that I have ever used. I almost wish that you had them for everywhere I visit! On our recent trip to the Big Island and O’ahu, we purchased the Big Island Guide because the island was new to us and the guide had some very good pictures, which is a necessity for me in a guidebook. I don’t know anything worse than picking up a guidebook in the store that has all information and absolutely no pictures! It is not appealing at all and I have no desire to buy them. However, your guidebooks had great pictures to show us exactly what we would see before we arrived so that we could decide if it looked like a cool place to go. I also like the way the book is set up so that as we drove around the island, the sites corresponded with what was written in the book. It was also written from a resident’s perspective and let us know the truth about the location, unlike other books that only have basic information and does not tell me what is worth seeing or not…Thank you very much for your time and I really hope to purchase more of your guides in the future. They are awesome!”
