The condo was exactly as advertised. It was clean and enoigh room for the three of us. Located downtown waikiki and was a 5 min walk to the beach with an amazing view of the ocean. It had everything we needed. The building was quiet and clean as well. Gary contacted me three days before arrival with all of the information I needed and gave me his cell number. There wasnt any hotel I could find for this price, location and amenities.
Condo is close to the beach, shopping and several restaurants. Super clean, the view from the lanai was amazing!
The location and views were outstanding.
Absolutely loved this place and we will be back. The owner was a pleasure to deal with , he was easy to communicate with, friendly and helpful. The apartment is just as the photos show, centrally located, and the views!!!!! The new beach chairs and beach towels provided well really great. Mahalo Gary!
Everything was literally amazing! The views from the room are stunning, everything was neat, organized, and clean. Additionally, the check-in and check out process was seamless. The beach is literally steps away and you can't beat having both a cityscape and beachview from the same balcony! All of that, and you cannot beat the price! The only thing I would say to be aware of is that sound from the ground level can travel up into the room where it comes through with clarity. But, that's not anything that someone could do anything to prevent. It didn't get in the way of sleep, and for me it actually added to the ambiance.
This condo was the perfect place for my husband and I to take in the sites and sounds of Honolulu. It was just about a block to Waikiki Beach, had beautiful views of the ocean and city, and was so convenient to the bus system and many restaurants! Gary, the owner, was very communicative and kept us informed of anything we needed to know, and the condo was well appointed with everything we needed. It was a great stay!
Gary’s place is quaint and old fashioned but very comfortable and handy to beach, shops, tour pIck ups at the Hyatt, restaurants, ABC shops and more.
Shower pressure is great, the bed is very comfortable, though a couple of firmer pillows would be great. The lanai is wonderful, very big with fabulous views from there as well as all the windows which face the sea.

The room was very dirty when we checked in. The fan & air conditioner were filthy. The walls in the hallway on our floor were being painted, very noisy, smelly, dusty and they had to leave our door open to paint the trim. We contacted the owner Gary Fries immediately regarding the dirt, the noise and the unsafe staying conditions. He had not informed us of the renovations in the hallway, did not get someone to come in to clean. He promised us a partial refund which we have never received.
My third time to this condo and loved it just a much as the first time. Views are great and location perfect!!

Host was on the spot with all enquiries and messages. Mahalo! Location of the condo was THE BEST. Close to absolutely everything, beach, restaurants, grocery shopping and THEBUS routes. The condo is adequately stocked with dishes and utensiles, but the lanai is the gem. Sunsets, and Friday night fireworks are a highlight.
Gary’s place is amazing. 29th floor on the corner, so views of the ocean on one side and views of the city and mountains on the other. I stayed here with my 17 year old son and we both thought it was great. Short walk to everything - especially the beach. Great neighborhood, lots of stores and restaurants. If you want to be at the center of Waikiki with a view of it all, this is the place. Gary is a great communicator, everything was perfect. Just be careful about leaving the sliding door open - there are curious pigeons in the neighborhood. Mahalo!
Gary's condo is perfect for our stay on Waikiki beach. It's 5 minutes walk from the beach. Beautiful ocean view from the living room and the balcony. The condo is super clean, supplied with everything we need. The check in/out process is seamless. Gary is a considerate host, giving us detailed info on the location, parking, restaurants and attractions nearby. It's a very enjoyable stay. We will definitely come back!
We had a great view from the 29th floor. We could watch the surfers and the ships going by. The bed was comfortable, and the place was very nice. Short walk to shops and beach. Would stay again.
Room was clean and communication with owner was instant and efficient. Location was ideal. Everything we needed was within a block or two. Only a couple negatives...though it was on the 29th floor, the noise outside was quite loud. Also, though the units are non-smoking, we still smelled smoke coming in from the surrounding units. Otherwise, our stay was great. The fireworks from Hilton Hawaiian Village on Friday was even visible from the condo. Really cool.
Gary was very helpful with all the info that you need. Has a great view off the lanai. Condo was very clean. Walking distance to beach, shopping, and food.
Perfect location, beautiful view, lots of eateries close by, clean & tidy. Having a kitchen was helpful as we had an infant with us. Would stay here again
Seemless booking and check in. Accurate listing and excellent communication with the owner.
Perfect location close to Waikiki Beach. We enjoyed the terrace very much and did always eat there.
We really enjoyed our stay here, the place has an amazing view of Waikiki Beach and it is located in the perfect spot close to everything. Two blocks to the beach! The parking is convenient in the building, typical Waikiki cost but no issue parking at all. We also enjoyed the full kitchen which allowed us so save some money on food cost. Property owner was attentive and ready to answer any questions!
Loved our stay here! Beautiful views and close to the beach! Our family can't wait to come back!
Everything turned out to be as described!
Everything worked out great
We enjoyed our stay. Very clean and secure.
Gary was very easy to get ahold of. Loved the location. Walking distance to everything.
This property has amazing views and is very conveniently located to everything. Gary was very informative and always kept us up to date on our trip with very detailed instructions and information. I would highly recommend this condo for anyone traveling to Waikiki. Sincerely the Jones
Condo was perfect for my family of 4. Location was great and everything was as described.
Poke across the street was amazing!
Hope to come back someday!
Recent visit with family was fantastic! Gary is the reason I rated the review a 5 and not anything less. The location is perfect and the views are some of the best. The only downfall to staying at this particular location and no fault of Gary's, the hotel staff are not allowed to help. We ran into a little inconvenience when trying to have them hold bags for a few hours before our late flight home. Other than that- we'd stay again in a heartbeat.
We could not have asked for a better host. Gary was very easy to communicate with and answered our texts promptly. As to the condo itself, it was better than we imagined. Gary also left nothing to chance. His instructions and inclusions were fantastic. We could not be happier and will work with him again.
My husband and I stayed at this property for 10 nights. It was just like described and pictured. The view from the windows and the balcony were fantastic. The owner was easy to work with and very informative regarding Hawaii policy and building expectations. It was a very easy and short walk to the beach, shops, restaurants, pretty much all things Waikiki. We would recommend this place to others and we would stay here again.
Really great location, and enjoyed our stay!
We picked the property for the patio & it did not disappoint. Views of the ocean & sunset from one side. Straight ahead was all the lights & cityscape of Waikiki. Opposite the sea was a view of the mountains, the Alawai Canal & golf course beyond. Simply lovely! Accommodations were clean, bed and pillows were very comfortable. The wi-fi worked and we enjoyed the pool area. It’s definitely not quiet due to the hustle & bustle of the city (plus one rooster!) but we did enjoy the evening sounds of the . Noise could have been controlled by closing the sliding doors & using the AC, but we preferred the fresh air. Next time I’ll bring my own shampoo, conditioner & wash cloth. Other than that we had everything we needed!
Just 2 blocks from Waikiki Beach. Our second stay at the Pacific Monarch in an ocean view room with large lanai. Nicely appointed with everything a person needs. Close to restaurants/bars with live music and close to surfboard and car rentals.
No frills stay, easy communication, very personable host. Great price, first time for me using vrbo, and happy with our stay. Only 4 pillows so if you are 4, consider bringing extra because no extra were provided. We had a fabulous stay nonetheless. I would recommend some cleaning cloths and a dish towel, but ample paper towels were provided. If cooking, bring all food items even salt, pepper, oil etc, and toiletries as none are provided but a bar of soap and dish liquid. I left ice packs and butter hopefully that stays for the next guest and is helpful. If you like views this place has it.
It was a great vacation for my family. The location is excellent, the room was clean, the owner is always in touch. Spectacular ocean view in the morning and during the day, and mountain view in the night.
Clean condo with all the amenities you would need for a beach vacation! Convenient to beach, shopping, restaurants and bus line. Exactly as advertised--beautiful nightly sunsets overlooking the ocean on the lanai. Great value for the price! Gary is very accommodating with your needs. Mahalo Gary!
We had a great week stay and we loved it. Gary was really nice and answered super fast. Location was great and the view was amazing!
Just a couple of blocks from Waikiki Beach this is the perfect location. Walking distance to just about anything.
Very nice location with a great view. Convenient to a lot within walking distance.
Clean unit, great views, close to downtown shopping.
Thank you Gary for the use of your comfortable, well-appointed and clean Condo for our stay in Honolulu. The view from the Condo was great. Also the Condo was somewhat centrally located in Waikiki. All in all, we had a most enjoyable stay. We can certainly recommend your Condo to anyone as it will be our first choice on any return trip to Hawaii.
Great view of ocean, city and mountains. Love sitting outside on the lanai in the morning and at night. Appreciate the real coffee pot!
Hope to come back again soon.
Just… wow! From the views, to the beach proximity, to the rooftop pool, to the breezy rooms (with aircon if you really need it but you don’t), to the comfy bed and beautifully appointed kitchen, this place is just wonderful. We had such a lovely time, thank you!
Enjoyed our stay here perfect location to stores, restaurants and beaches.
I had a wonderful stay at Gary’s property. It is a spacious condo with a very big lanai. It was nice that we had a full kitchen to cook when we didn’t feel like eating out. The location was perfect with a short walk to the beach and restaurants nearby. Would definitely stay here again!
Close to everything including the beach
We will be back
Amazing views and perfect location. Gary was excellent to work with. I would rent again when we come back.
The location is great. In the middle of all the action. Can walk to a lot of places.
