Georgette Lepore All I can say is WOW! This vacation condo was wonderful. I probably have checked out of more hotels then I've stay in and the family joke is that no one even bothers to get out of the car until Mom has checked out the hotel. So if I am giving this condo a 5 star rating you can count on it. Like many I found this condo on the internet and from the first communication with Marie I felt comfortable and felt like I knew Marie for years. Everything Marie states on her website and her communications are true. After several communications I was so comfortable that my husband and I booked the Sunrise Condo from Sept. 1 through Oct. 18. The condo is even more then the description. You don't realize everything Marie provides until you are actually staying there especially for an extended stay. Clean, neat, organized, great location, excellent security amazing views from the lanai, and a wonderful property owner is our memories of our time in Hawaii at the Sunrise Condo. I can't tell you how convenient the washer/dryer in the condo was...just think of hours wasted sitting in a laundromat. From the morning delivery to our door of the daily newspaper to the convenience of having internet access, to bus and trolley transportation being up the street, with Robert's Hawaii picking up at the door for tours and airport transportation, to the beach amenities being provided, with the beach and all shopping being one block away, and sitting on the lanai watching the golfers to our left and the ocean and ships to the right made this truly paradise. Marie provides, towels, dishes, cooking utensils, ironing board/iron, hangers, spices, air conditioning, fan and a warm inviting atmosphere. There was plenty of storage and closet space in the condo and I am an over-packer. Also the pull down bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed having the open space during the day when the bed was put up. This was our fifth trip to Hawaii and previously have stayed at the 5 star hotels but after this wonderful experience of living in the Sunrise Condo at the Fairway Villa we will always book with Marie because Marie truly makes this "your home away from home." As for our security deposit, well Marie had it in the mail and it was home before us. Thank you Marie and Stan for sharing your home and hospitality with us.
. Deborah and Elliott. Clinton Md. Wonderful Trip to Paradise...for which we don't want to let go...While the pictures and property information are accurate, it is not until you see the unit, its location in Waikiki, the view from the lanai and meet the wonderfully
helpful people in the building that you appreciate all of the work Dr Stan and Marie Satz have done to provide the perfect setting for a memorable vacation - a retreat to paradise. Before we arrived, Marie provided us all the information we needed to plan our vacation at the property. We found the comforts and amenities of home already set-up for our stay exactly as depicted. We walked to Waikiki beach, food market, local stores, restaurants and enjoyed front door service by local tour companies. Since we travel with a laptop, we found the unit's internet service a plus for accessing email, researching local attractions and placing tour reservations. Daily delivery of the newspaper kept us abreast of local news and events. A special treat for us was the roof top recreation area, which provided a wonderful view of Waikiki's Fourth of July fireworks display. We were amazed at how much there is to do in and around Waikiki. We recommend this well maintained property for people who want a quiet location where you can enjoy the views and sounds of the city. During our stay, we did not hear a sound from any joining unit and the hallways were quite. Based on ourpositive experience and Marie's hospitality, we have submitted a reservation request for a return trip to paradise. Aloha until next year!" [Deborah & Elliott stayed July, 2010 & 2011 and have booked again for 2012. Guests have once again become friends!! Thanks, guys.]
04/07/10 Ronald & Cathy (Spokane Valley, Wa) This place is wonderful, and you couldn't ask for better hosts. From first contact to return of deposit it has been a totally flawless procedure. Cathy and I were on our honeymoon and found the condo be just what was advertised. The cleaning person does an incredible job and the place was spotless. We had everything in the Condo that we could ever need during our stay. We really enjoyed the use of the boogie boards and small cooler while visiting the beach. The longer you stay, and the more people you talk to you will realize what a great value this is. Everyone else I talked to were paying way more for far less. If you are looking for a class operation and quite possible the best value in Hawaii look no further, this is the place to stay. Recommended for: Age 55+, adventure seekers, tourists without a car, sightseeing, romantic getaway.

We stayed in the Sunset Condo (2104) the month of November 2009 and had a wonderful time. This was the fourth time to stay in a condo on Waikiki. Stan and Marie’s was buy far the best and the most economical. The condo was clean and had excellent furnishings. Every morning we had coffee and read the newspaper on the lanai. Stan and Marie take excellent care of their condos, they painted the one we were in after we departed. Most owners would not have bothered to repaint. Several times we enjoyed just relaxing in their beautiful condo for the entire day. The Fairway Villa was quiet and always in great condition. There is 24/7 security and free covered parking space for the unit. We enjoyed the pool and sauna on the rooftop Great Condo - Great Location - Great Owners.

6/05/09. Captain W.George Drago.[Return guest for two winters and booked for the third winter, 2011. Retired Pilot, taking glider lessons on Oahu] I have been to Fairway Villa for many years, but this the first time I've stayed at Marie and Stan Satz's condo. It's a studio unit but has pull down bed which is very comfortable and allows for lots more room. the condo has great views with many new features and furnishings. it is extremely clean and neat. Fairway Villa is clean, neat, with excellent security. The 29th floor is a great sundeck with pool, hot tub and grills for cooking. Fairway Villa has great access into Waikiki, only 2 blocks to the the beach. Marie and Stan are easy to work with. I am planning a return trip and recommend there condos.
