My wife and I stayed here recently for our latest trip to Oahu. Traditionally we've stayed at regular hotels by the beach in Waikiki. Those hotels were always nice but we paid a fortune for them. This time we decided to do a vacation rental instead. After a ton of online searching I kept coming across the Fairway Villas. The price was great, loved the location (away from the hub-bub yet close enough to it to join in on the fun) and the fact that it included a full kitchen, washer/dryer and free parking sealed the deal. Our unit was on the 22nd floor and was well appointed. All the necessary cooking utensils and cleaning equipment was provided (no maid service as this is a privately owned condo not a hotel). The owners also provided beach chairs and boogey boards for our enjoyment plus free wi-fi. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner on our lanai overlooking the mountains to our left and the ocean to our right. The rooftop pool and whirlpool was nice and a great place to watch the Friday fireworks from. The security staff was very friendly and accommodating. The assigned parking spot was awesome (if you've ever been to Waikiki you know how hard parking is to get!). We always paid a fortune for parking at our hotels before and we weren't even guaranteed a spot!! You don't really need a car in Waikiki but we roam all over the island so we prefer having one. If you have a car, I would recommend that you do any food shopping at Walmart not the Food Pantry on the corner. Even though that grocery store is super convenient (about 50 yards away), the prices are very high as its the only supermarket in Waikiki. Walmart is about two miles away and the amount you'll save is worth the trip (yes, it was a bit odd having our first stop in Hawai'i be at a Walmart - it was like we never left home!!).
Granted the Fairway Villas is not high end luxury but nor is the price tag. The location was great, our room well appointed and the parking could not be beat. We will be back again!
