Gary’s Place is not a hotel and not on the beach, no surprises here. High 30th floor. Beautiful views of the Ala Wai, mountains, and golf course. Kitchen and lanai dining, really just the best. In-building assigned parking and enhanced WIFI = A real and true savings!!

Our intention is to provide a warm comfortable blending
of OLD and NEW Hawaii.

LOCATION: Located at the intersection of Kuhio and Royal Hawaiian Avenues. This places you at the hub of Waikiki. The beach is a short walk, bus service in front of the building, several convenience stores within ½ block, tourist shopping within 1 block, super market short blocks, International Market Place is 3 short blocks. Walk, ride, or drive you are in the right place.

THE BUILDING: The Royal Kuhio is 38 stories tall and has a number of preferred amenities. Entering the beautiful lobby you will notice the security station and 'keyed' access doors to the elevator lobbies. The 7th floor boasts a number of options. You can simply sun bathe, or avail yourself of the pool, exercise room, saunas, or putting green.

FTo keep the kids occupied the 7th floor also offers ping pong. Both charcoal and gas BBQ’s are available. A large covered paved stone open air lanai is available for your enjoyment. Just in case you need to wash a few clothes the 7th floor coin operated laundry has more than 20 washing and drying machines. In building reserved parking is included at no extra charge. NOTE: Diamond Head portion of deck closed for remodeling.

THE CONDO: Gary’s place is privately owned and non smoking. It is located on the 30th floor of the building facing the quiet and serene Ala Wai, golf course, and the mountains. The condo is designed to offer the client a wide range of choices. For example, the full kitchen permits you the choice of full meal preparation, light meals, snacks, or just cold drinks.

Temperature comfort: open the lanai door and feel the breeze, or turn on the ceiling fan, or for those that like it simply cold close the door and “crank up” the A/C.

BATHING OPTIONS: The combination tub shower allows you to choose either a soothing “soak” in the tub or a refreshing shower ranging from very cool to steaming hot.

ENTERTAINMENT: A 32" flat screen remote control cable T.V A combination radio/CD player, A combination VHS/DVD player. Or perhaps just the quiet and a good book. Also, for the home video folks the T.V. is capable of viewing your camcorder via cables or “S” plug-in.

SLEEPING OPTIONS: The condo is equipped with a king size bed and a queen sleeper couch.

COMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT : FREE high speed internet. WIFI. FREE unlimited local calls. The phone is direct dial long distance and international call capable with credit or phone cards.

THE KITCHEN: Just in case 'eating-in' is your preferred option the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, casserole baking dishes, blender, waffle maker, rice cooker, crock pot, toaster and coffee maker. The fridge is a full sized 18 cubic feet, 4 burner stove with oven and broiler, microwave, and of course a dishwasher.

LINENS: Bath and bedding linens provided. Beach
towels too!

ANALYSIS: Gary’s place is centrally located; offers many choices, provides vacation value; the building has excellent facilities, is well maintained, and offers 24/7 security.

I hope to hear from you soon concerning a reservation, but if you find another better suited value for your vacation I wish you a wonderful time in Hawaii, a place that I fell in love with many years ago.

Gary's Place/Waikiki/FreePark Reviews

From the moment we walked in to the day we left, it felt like home. The host made sure to provide essential items to make this long term stay as comfortable as possible. By being on the mauka side, you have a beautiful view from the lanai. Beach items and games were provided for use during the stay. Everything is as pictured and was a great choice in the heart of Waikiki. Conveniently in walking distance to many restaurants, stores, and beaches. The building and unit are greatly secured and create a safe environment. Plus, it came with a parking spot, which was essential for my stay and scarce in Waikiki. Gary’s Place is truly the jackpot!

Gary’s place was clean, had everything we needed for our vacation. Can’t beat the location, it was close to everything. The International Market Place, the Beach, Restaurants, a bus stop right in front of the building. And the parking garage was a real plus. Would definitely stay there again!

The location was perfect— a five-minute walk to the beach. I look forward to staying here in the future. Highly recommended.

My sister and I had a wonderful time at Gary's place. The apartment was clean and it had all of the appliances we needed to prep / cook meals. The location was also convenient; it's about a 5 - 10 minute walk to the beach and the room is very quiet because it is on the 30th floor. Lastly, the owner was very professional. Gary responded quickly and effectively to any questions we had. I would recommend this place to a friend! P.S. You can see a great view of the sun rising over the mountains from the lanai!

We loved the location, cleanliness, accuracy and the security of the building. Also a parking spot is available which is very convenient. The owner was very attentive to our needs. We will definitely come back!

Highly recommend and will book again. Gary's place had everything we needed for a month-long stay. Kitchen had what we needed to do our own cooking, including a slow cooker. Nice to have a Brita pitcher in the fridge. King bed is very comfortable and we spent lots of time on the lanai. Royal Kuhio is in a great location: 5 min walk to the beach, easy walk to restaurants/shops, right next to a Biki rental bike dock, and bus stop is right outside the bldg (buses to mall, grocery store, even HNL airport). We didn't rent a car the whole month. Gary responded right away whenever I had questions. We also appreciated the beach chairs, towels, umbrella and cooler provided. Coin laundry in the bldg is clean and convenient, lots of machines, just need to save quarters..

It was conveniently located, room was clean, cozy, nice as described, balcony has a good view. Couch needs replaced but covered it with clean linen they provided. Overall room was very nice and as described, would definitely recommend if you are budget minded and not overly sensitive by the lack of luxury. Owner went above and beyond to provide the basics of home...
