About Mark Glick

Mark Glick purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Mark Glick chose Waikiki
The panoramic Waikiki penthouse is a rare three bedroom condo in one of the most desired locations on the makai or ocean side of Kalakaua Avenue. It's all about location - and at the end of our street, a short five-minute walk, is Waikiki Beach with ever present trade winds and perfect views of Hawaii's most recognized landmark, Le'ahi, or Diamond Head State Monument.
What makes this Condo unique
On lovely Beach Walk street, the penthouse property is directly adjacent to the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, Trump Hotel Waikiki and Embassy Suites Waikiki. We are a short walk to the Halekalani Hotel, Sheraton Waikiki and Royal Hawaiian Hotel, and a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Hale Koa Hotel and the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

Great downtown location
Location was great - walking distance to many restaurants and beach. Nice to have free parking and availability of addl spot, although parking full size van was a challenge, better than most in the area. Great semi wrap around balcony, provided beautiful view of city and terrific nighttime photos. Apartment was nice, beds were comfortable, kitchen well stocked with some condiments available. August weather was hot and humid, but air conditioners were able to keep up and more than adequate to cool space. Only challenge was the short flight of stairs. Had some difficulty locating unit. Was able to contact owner by phone and was very kind and able to walk us thru getting parked and opening lock box. Owner was very responsive and quick to respond for all inquiries. Would definitely stay again.
One of the best
The property location is fabulous. Being on the end of Waikiki allows us close access to what we consider the best part of the beach and a lot less crowded. Lewers Street is around the corner and the Outrigger at the end of Beachwalk makes it easy to get a Starbucks to start the day.
Owner Mark Glick went above and beyond the call of duty. We had a night that was uncomfortable due to the lack of trade winds and Mark installed additional fans and AC to make the rest of our stay quite comfortable.
The living area is spacious especially considering we were a family of six with two granddaughters ages 7 and 10 and having evening visits from our son and his wife easily accommodating our group of ten. We also enjoyed the evening sunsets, sitting outside on the lanai with the cool evening breeze.
I highly recommend this property!
We really enjoyed the warm and engaging Dodson family who took fabulous care of our penthouse, One note- we're happy to report that we now have Split A/C throughout the penthouse - in each of the 3 bedrooms and in the living room/dining area.
Awesome Stay & Terrific Location!!
The location of this 3 Bedroom Penthouse Suite is fantastic! Just can’t beat this location! It is truly in the center of the most happening place-the beach, the restaurants and the shops are all only minutes away. Awesome view, huge space and very tidy. It was newly renovated too..
What added the value to this property were the owners, Mark and Hitomi. They were so considerate, professional and welcoming. They provided enough information of the vicinities ahead of time per our request. There were enough beds in the 3 bedrooms but since we were a group of 7 guys, they added air mattresses for our convenience too.
We will definitely go back!
Thank you for everything Mark and Hitomi. Aloha!!
Eureka! It is a short walk to everything the Waikiki area has to offer and that’s a lot. Although it is not a very tall building, the apartment provides a panaramic view of its surroundings
The fireworks were such a nice touch. We just happened to be there for the local Hawaiian festival.
We ran into a few problems with the on site parking downstairs. It happened one evening when we returned to find someone parked in our assigned parking space. They did leave a number to call but the damage was done. We were spoken to harshly by a resident and accused of being inconsiderate, because we were forced to park behind the car in the space allocated to us. Parking is a valued perk at this site so it should be clearly understood that parking in someone else’s assigned slot can be an issue. Also, use a small to medium sized vehicle the lot is very cozy and a bit difficult when maneuvering- no large SUV please.
All in all, it’s a nonpareil location. For our party of five, it was pleasantly comfortable, spacious and private. Ps: this site requires ample mobility since two flights of stairs cap the assent after exiting the elevator.
We LOVED our stay here! Our family of 6, 2 adults, 2 seniors, 2 kids, had a great time staying here.
There place was clean, comfy, and plenty of space for us to sprawl out. Kids sat in the WRAP AROUND BALCONY and had ice cream from HENRY's downstairs. We watched the sunset and the FRIDAY FIREWORKS. It was a perfect unobstructed view.
Loved having a fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, and parking spot. It could feel stuffy or warm inside, but once all the windows and sliding doors were opened, it was very comfortable.
We loved that we were able to walk to WAIKIKI beach (1 block away) as well as downtown including the ROYAL HAWAIIAN CENTER. FOOD and SHOPPING were available right downstairs. Such a perfect location. So close to everything.
Mahalo Mark for sharing your home!
It warms our hearts to know your family had a great time! Thank you for the wonderful review- it inspires us to add more special touches to make it even better in the future!
Perfect accommodations for corporate travel
We sent our executive team to Waikki Beach for an important conference. The penthouse worked out perfectly. Communications with the owner was easy and he was very accommodating. I have bookmarked this property for future company travel to the area.
