Waikiki Marina apartment directly across from the beach. Free Parking! Free WiFi! Full kitchen/new bed/new TV/new refrigerator. 5min walk to Ala Moana mall (shopping and restaurants) / Ala Moana Beach Park (beach) / Hilton Hawaiian Village (beach). Apartment is perfect for a beach or business trip; unbeatable price and location. Building has coin operated laundry on 3rd floor. Convenience store less than 2 minutes walking distance.

Guest access

You will have access to the laundry area (coin washer and dryer on the 3rd/4th floors), the pool / tennis court / BBQ area on the ground level, and parking stall on the fifth floor. I also provide beach towels and bath towels.

Interaction with guests

I will be available by phone and I can have my property manager assist if something needs to be done. The building also has an onsite manager that works from 8am-4pm.

Other things to note

Please note that building is undergoing elevator maintenance until 2019. There are currently two elevators in the building, and one of them will likely be down for maintenance during your stay (it is possible that both of them will be working, but I would plan for one of them to be down for maintenance- the building is going through a process to completely replace both elevators). With only one elevator working, it may take a little while to wait for the elevator. This is why I priced the unit at its current price- prior to the elevator maintenance starting, the unit was listed at $150 per night. Luckily, the unit is only 7 floors above your parking stall, so you will only need to walk up 7 flights of stairs if you park (parking stall is on the fifth floor). If you are on foot and coming in through the lobby instead of driving and parking, you have the option of waiting for the elevator, but walking the stairs is not too bad- it is on the 12th floor and the floors are not too high, it takes me about 2-3 minutes to walk up the stairs and 1-2 minutes to walk down.

I do not recommend booking my unit if you are a very light sleeper. During elevator maintenance, the elevator can sometimes make a loud sound that can be heard in the unit (this has affected less than 5% percent of all my guests, but I still would like to make this disclaimer). Due to the inconvenience, I am making all items in the refrigerator free of charge. It will be stocked with bottled water and soft drinks.

brandons place was a great stay. perfect location right next to ala moana, you need a key to get in through the parking garage and lobby so you feel safe... theres nobody random that can roam through. the one elevator wasnt too bad, we had to wait but it wasnt too long. the bed was perfect for me (on the firmer side), all the amenities you need... i did read that the fridge would have drinks but there wasnt any so that was kind of a bummer but theres an abc store about a minute walk away so not too bad. i would recommend this place and would definitely stay again :)

Had a WONDERFUL experience at Brandon's Place!!! The location is great! Brandon's place is a unit within the Marina Waikiki Tower which is just a short walk from many things including: Ala Wai Boat Harbor, Kahanamoku Beach near the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort, ABC Convenience Store on the Corner as well as McDonalds, and restaurants such as Outback, Red Lobster, Buffalo Wild Wings, Goofy Cafe, and Wailana Coffee House just to name a few. It's probably about a 20 - 30 min walk to where the action is closer to "Duke's Statue", Waikiki Beach / Kuhio Beach, and the Shopping / Restaurants in that area. But that's where public transportation or uber can help if you don't want to walk. We even rented bikes one time and got a little exercise in the process. And if you're planning on renting a car, this place is perfect because it comes with a free parking spot on the property! That is absolutely huge because parking can be tough to find in Waikiki. The place itself is perfect for one or two people, clean, and has all the necessary amenities. Bath and Beach towels were provided, AC keeps things cool enough to beat the heat, Iron, WiFi, full kitchen with Fridge, Flat Stove, and Plates/Glasses/Utensils.... it has the works! Currently, there is only one working elevator for the property. For the most part, this was not a problem. I only remember a few times we had to wait 5 to 10 min for the elevator. But overall, not too bad at all. (The view from the elevator was pretty cool as well) Communication with Brandon was super easy and he would respond very quickly with any questions or concerns we had. He even worked with us to be able to checkout a little later on our last day since we were taking a late flight out of Honolulu. I would highly recommend Brandon's place for your next Hawaii / Oahu / Waikiki Adventure and would definitely stay here again in the future!

I enjoyed Branden's place because of its great location, comfort, cleanliness, and amenities. I highly recommend others to use it. You will have to share the elevator since the building is going through and upgrade but it wasn't too much of a hassle.

Quiet, small place ideal for short stays in Waikiki with a good location. Walking distance to both downtown and the mall. Really easy to check in. Free parking is a plus in Waikiki. The only downside is that the towels had a strange odor and did not seem clean.

great place overall--a little outdated but homey and had everything we needed. host was nice enough to provide sunscreen, aloe, hand sanitizer, first aid-kit, etc. free parking was also a big plus, but the garage is extremely narrow, so it is a bit difficult to navigate. the only concern we had was the bathroom. it was pretty small, and the towels had that wet towel smell. the host did not reply to me when i inquired about a later check out time, but it was a pretty last minute message. we enjoyed our stay here.

The apartment is in a great location on Ala Moana blvd, with lots of restaurants, walking distance to beach, and an ABC store on the corner. The building is older and the elevator is being updated in stages which means it runs very slowly.
