I won't rate the condo we stayed at, since this will vary based on which company you book with.
The property itself suited our needs. Positives include:

- 1.5 blocks from Waikiki beach
- on a main road, Ala Moana (convenience to buses, etc)
- ABC store, McDonalds & Car Rental companies downstairs
- Food Pantry for groceries on Hobron St (2 blocks away)
- reasonably sized deck with afternoon sun (small pool & hot tub)
- close to Ala Moana mall
- a 15 min walk to Royal Hawaiian Center
- view of the marina (not of the beach)

The only negatives that some may think of (that didn't bother us)
- street level noise
- not right in the middle of the busiest part of Waikiki

My name is Susan DiNardo & I'm frm NYC... I rented a condo listed on ur website...I spoke to a Rep by the name of Tammy Lee frm...(www.hiexclusiverentals.com)...she was very professional & gave me a FANTASTIC rate. After I made the commitmnt to rent, I read up on a bunch of neg. reviews on her & I'll b honest, I was gunna cancel, but already bought our non-refundable plane tickets...We(my husband & 2 boys) stood in Hawaii & in her condo fr a little over 2 weeks. I was prepared to "fight" illegitament chrges, bills & etc...which I read about frm the other traveler...to my surpirse, not only was I NOT over-charged fr ANYTHING, but we recieved complimentary pick-up/drop-off, coupon meal tickets(saved us a bundle,trust me as a family traveling w/2little ones on vaca, it gets VERY xpensive)...The condo was more than we xpected, literally everything included, in price + she picked up cold meds fr us b/c my husband & I got sick a few days...I dnt knw wht xactly happened w/the other traveler & I do wish her the best....maybe she did "abuse" stuff or maybe she didn't, but as fr a personal xperience, I(we) had a GREAT one....thnkx again Exclusive Rentals/Ms. Lee...btw, my husband reserved a condo frm u fr our 10th year aniversary...cant wait to b in Hawaii again...aloha!

We are staying here in a 30 day vacation rental, in a 2 bedroom condo for $3100/ month. we found it on Craigslist. This includes one parking space and tax, so it was a much better deal than a suite at the Doubletree. Plus, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a living room, lanai and full kitchen gave us some needed elbow room. This is a nice building with greets security. I don't think it's that noisy, but I'm used to city sounds. The pool is great and it is across the street from the beach and a wonderful lagoon for the kids (by the Hilton Hawaiian Village). I like being close to Ala Moana Shopping Center, but this is definitely not in the heart of Waikiki. It's an easy walk, though, so I'd definitely stay here again.

While staying in Waikiki, I find that condominium buildings are more comfortable--and ultimately affordable-- than hotel rooms. But, in my opinion, Discovery Bay, it is not in the center of Waikiki as it is closer to Ala Moana and the Hilton Hawaiian Village. To some, that may be a bonus. But to me (a walking shopping beachgoer) it is a too far from everything else. The building itself is in fine repair, as was the unit. Upwards of 30 stories, the room views can be great or average (and noisy) depending on which way you face. Most units are true one bedrooms with kitchen or kitchenette. The building, partially owner-occupied, is well maintained and secure. There is controlled access parking on site in the garage. Several different management companies manage blocks of units in the building, so the quality and price will depend on from whom you rent the unit from. In the past, I have paid $85-200/nt. I recommend Googling “Discovery Bay vacation rental” for rental options.

As always; I travel to Waikiki several times a year, I can advise that Waikiki is a nice tropical urban adventure. The city comes with the negatives of a big city, along with the overwhelming benefits of a beautiful beachfront resort. Generally, everything in Waikiki is “a little tired” although there have been continuous improvements in the last few years. If you are traveling solo, take Roberts Hawaii from the airport for $10 (no rsvr rqd).

Two or more people, take a taxi from the airport to the hotel (should be under $30). In Waikiki, nearly everything is walking distance or a short shuttle/bus away. If you need a car for the day, you can rent one in Waikiki.
