Our Waikiki Vacation Rentals vs. A Typical Waikiki Hotel Room 

Why would you choose one of our Waikiki Vacation Rentals over a Waikiki Hotel Room?

One of our guests put it best: "Why stay in a hotel when you can rent a condo for the same price?" Or less in most cases!

What Waikiki hotels may charge for that we don't:

1. We don't have daily amenity or resort fees that most hotels typically charge $25-30 a day additional. 

Resort charges for rental


2. We don't charge you additional fees after checkout or try to hide fees. You see all the fees upfront, no surprises on while on vacation.  

Rental Cleaning Fees at checkout


3. We don't charge for parking for most of our rentals. Most rentals include FREE parking! That's right we said it! FREE!!!

Additional Parking Charges for Rentals

4. We don't charge for additional guests. 2 guests is the same rate as 4 guests. No additional fees!

Example(Hotel website quote below): Same dates, same room, but 1 additional guest = higher rate, in this case $51.34 per night higher. Same room, same space, increased price. We don't do that at Captain Cook.

 Rental increase for additional person at hotel

 

Please compare the TOTAL amount after adding resort fees, parking fees, and possibly any additional fees added at checkout.
 
NOTE:
Most prices will not include many of these fees in the total since they are charged "daily" so you will only see after you checkout, adding to the REAL total price. If you do not stay with us, please ask about any additional fees before booking with someone else. No one likes surprises, especially on vacation. Well...unless the surprise is a free Mai Tai! or late check out!
