Visits to Hawaii have always been expensive, but each year prices seem to go higher. However, I think if you compare my condo with other options, you will realize it is a good deal. I try to keep the nightly rate about $100 less than what the hotel charges. I want guests to know they are getting a good deal so that they take good care of the condo. I recommend the condo for two guests; there is an extra fee if there are three guests to cover the extra costs.

My Waikiki vacation condo has always been legally registered with the state of Hawaii so no worries about the illegal rentals you may have heard about in Hawaii.

This corner unit in the Pacific Monarch Hotel is on the 20th floor. The views are great and the location of the hotel is in the heart of Waikiki. From the entrance of the hotel it is 500 feet to the sand of Waikiki Beach. I originally got the condo for my parents when they were alive; they very much enjoyed their yearly visits. I myself enjoy the memories and sometimes stay at the condo. Other times, I rent the condo out for others to visit; some guests have been visiting each year for many years. I hope you enjoy your stay if you choose my Waikiki Vacation Condo, but please respect it as a home-away-from-home.

There are many restaurants in the area and the hotel is close to nightlife spots and shopping. The hotel has a recreation room on the top floor with beautiful views of the Ko'olau mountains. The roof-top pool and hot tub also have great views. The common areas of the hotel are neat and clean. You have access to all the amenities of the hotel but you don’t have to pay the hotel’s activity fee. You won’t be able to get beach towels at the front desk but I do have beach towels in the condo. There is free Wi-Fi in the room. A few other minor amenities of the hotel are only for those who pay the amenity fee such as daily newspaper, free shuttle to Ala Moana, beach chairs (there are often some in my condo left by guests), in-room coffee, and free admission to two museums. I bet you can buy those amenities if you wish on your own for a lot less than $25 plus tax per day.

There’s a parking garage attached to the hotel but it’s run by a private company. Anyone (hotel guest or private guest) who parks there needs to pay the $30 per 24 hour time period. There’s a machine that accepts credit cards in the garage

There’s a small but functional kitchen with everything you need to save a little money by eating some of your meals in the condo, all linens and towels are provided. Of course, since it’s offered at such a low price there’s no maid service provided.

The Pacific Monarch is a three-star hotel and NOT right on the beach. There are more luxurious places to stay but A LOT more expensive. I keep the condo very clean but it has more of a home-like feel. I added a new sofa in the living room in November 2023, and I installed new laminate floor in 2020, and new lanai furniture in 2021. All considered, I think that you will enjoy your stay which is my sincere hope.

In the future won’t stay anywhere else! Very clean condo with huge lanai and panoramic views (ocean out every window)! Condo has a great layout and is perfect for 1-2 people- a new couch/ futon was comfortable for sleeping. Owner Steve was in regular contact with us making sure everything was as expected. Condo In a hotel building in Waikiki surf area- best access to beach, shopping and entertainment, great pool and community spaces with friendly and very helpful staff.

We stayed at the property for our honeymoon, and it was the perfect place. The balcony was beautiful to sit out on and watch the sunrise or sunset, and the early surfers hit the waves. It had everything you needed, and the host Steven was great at answering questions and promptly providing suggestions. The property was as listed, and the rooftop pool area was also amazing. The location was perfect for strolling around Waikiki and getting to the beach among other locations. We would definitely recommend this location and try to book here on our next stay.

I can't say enough about our stay. Best price for our visit to the island. Clean, quiet and well stocked with the essentials. Great location. Great view. Easy check in/out. Friendly staff and clean building. Parking garage available that is connected to building. Owner was very helpful and just a phone call away.

This was a nice clean condo with a great view. Even though the building is back from the beach, the unit has a good view of Waikiki beach. The covered lanai is a comfortable place to have a drink, meal, or just watch surfers. We could even see the Friday night fireworks at the other end of Waikiki beach over the buildings in between. Steve was a very communicative host who answered all of our questions promptly. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Waikiki.

This place is PERFECT for 1-2 people! We had everything we needed and more. I’m sure some guests have left some of the hidden treasures that we used during our stay/ and I’m sure people take things as well, so all of these items may not be there in the future. But we were amazed at how well stocked the place was. The bench on the balcony had three chairs, two umbrellas, a shovel, tube, boogie board and a football. The kitchen has a four burner stove and oven, toaster oven, toaster, blender, coffee pot, crockpot, microwave and tons of dishes/cooking pots/ utensils. There was even tinfoil, trash bags, cling wrap, paper towels, dish soap, salt, pepper, sugar, honey, syrup and cinnamon in the cabinets. The place is also fully stocked with towels and beach towels. The rooftop pool, sauna and hot tub are all so nice. It was great when we didn’t want to get sandy at the beach. The view from the condo is INCREDIBLE. Truly waking up there every day felt like a dream. Our first day we saw a rainbow over the skyline and ocean, it’s actually paradise. Best part is the location. So close to everything! We had friends in town and everyone was jealous of the location we were at. Steven was super kind, helpful and easy to work with. We are definitely going to try and book this place in the future.

This condo was perfect for my husband and I. The location and balcony view is 10/10. It’s literally 2 mins from the beach! Much closer than I thought from the photos. There’s an amazing poke place right across the street, Waikiki market a block away for groceries and literally everything you imagine within 4 Blocks each way. Bus stops, bike and scooter rentals are within a block or two. Live music a block away at a neat outdoor restaurant pub.. Elevators are fast. Bed is comfy. Zero complaints. We will be returning! Highly recommend. It’s not a huge condo, but it is set up very well with everything you need. We’ll taken care of as well.

This rental was just as advertised. Clean, comfortable and close to everything. The views from the 20th floor balcony are amazing. The owner was very responsive to questions and recommended restaurants and activities that all turned out perfect. Will try and rebook when we return. We booked this 9-10 months in advance and I am so glad we did. Kerry Malone

This property was perfect! Steve was a gem from start to finish! He communicated with us clearly and timely and was always available to help with great suggestions for outings! It is exactly as pictured and described. Very clean with all amenities needed for comfort. Maybe, a bit dated; however, we would take clean and comfortable and a good host over "modern decor" anytime. Perfect for a couple. The views are breathtaking! The location was perfect as we could walk everywhere. The location was central Waikiki. We could not have asked for a better place to stay for our 30th wedding anniversary! Thank you Steve for making our trip a great lasting memory!

The views are wonderful. This was our first time to stay in a condo, after 29 times of staying in hotels, and we are glad we stayed here! Will most definitely stay here again next visit. Steve was very kind and gracious to work with. Would highly recommend staying here. Short walk to Waikiki Beach. Several choices close by for food. Loved sitting on the lanai every evening, enjoying the tropical breezes with the awesome view. Mahalo Steve!

This condo has SUCH a great location and view from every window and the patio. Comes equipped with everything you need. We rented a car for the 8 day stay and parking was $200, east to find a spot and gas was cheaper than it was at home! Steve is awesome at communicating and making the checkin/checkout and stay SO easy. Looking forward to coming back to this unit or one of his other ones. Thank you Steve!!

My husband and I stayed in this condo for 2 weeks for our honeymoon. We could not have loved it more. The check in and check out process was so easy thanks to Steven’s timely and clear communication. The condo was in pristine condition when we arrived. The best part for us was the fact that it had EVERYTHING we needed. Toaster, coffee maker, beach chairs and umbrella - you name it, the condo had it ready. It was so nice to save money on meals by cooking at the condo or not having to rent chairs/umbrellas on the beach. The location is within walking distance of anything you could need in Waikiki. It is a block away from 2 restaurants we absolutely loved and returned to multiple times. It is 2 blocks from the beach and the view of the ocean from the lanai and windows is breathtaking. And the best part of all: the price to stay at this condo is unbeatable. My husband and I will absolutely be staying here again in the future.

Steve's condo was conveniently located and Steve was a great host. I very much enjoyed my stay. The condo was perhaps a little dated, but it didn't effect my stay. I would stay here again, no question.

We had a great stay here and would recommend it highly without hesitation. Steve provided all the information we needed and check-in and check-out were easy. Location is fantastic in the heart of Waikiki and provides perfect access to eateries, shops and the beach and rental places for everything you need. The spacious lanai is the real gem of this suite - we spent many meals and evenings enjoying this space. View from the lanai is amazing. Suite has a functional kitchen area that is equipped with the basics and an assortment of utensils. The bedroom is completely separate - we stayed at another place advertised as one bedroom before and that was not the case. Furnishings are good and the bed is comfortable. Only two things to note from us. The bathroom could use a little tub maintenance/refresh to remove or replace the unattractive worn out non-slip strips. And noting for others that this is a busy area and there is noticeable city noise and traffic especially on weekend nights - it did not bother us too much but those prioritizing a quiet spot/stay should be aware. Regardless of these two things, we were extremely happy and would stay here again.

This is the best condo by waikiki for getting around and hanging out. The views are awesome and always in sight. Sunsets every night. Great access to the beach and all of our favourite restaurants. (Including the poke place across the street.) Steve is great. Place is very comfortable. Wall air unit enhanced by fan worked good. Lots of breeze from the ocean. The building is not the best and the pool is so-so, but the condo is worth it. We would buy this place if we could.

We found the owner to be attentive and informative. The condo was as described in the listing - great location. Although there were some negative comments about the elevator service, we found the waits for the elevator to be normal for the style of building.

I loved this property. It had a view of the ocean and was centrally located. I pretty much could walk anywhere in Honolulu with ease. It had internet, so I was still able to perform some remote work while on vacation. I would definitely stay at this unit again. The owner was excellent with his communication and directions.

We would highly recommend you stay at Steve’s condo because it is in a convenient location walking distance to everything. It has great ocean views and the rooftop pool and hot tub was relaxing. Steve does an excellent job of keeping his condo well stocked with things you can use in the ocean so you don’t have to purchase them. We would stay again at Steve’s condo.

The condo is located just a couple hundred feet from the beach. There are many great bars and restaurants with walking distance. I've been to Waikiki three times and this is the best rental I have had.

Condo in good condition. The location is great. Good view from the balcony. The kitchen has everything for cooking. The bed is comfortable. Steve was very friendly and very prompt in helping with all requests. We were pleased with everything. Thank you Steve!

April 2021
This was a perfect place for us. Very comfortable bed! Had a large lanai with a lot of seating. It was so nice having the kitchen so we could bring home leftovers and have breakfast in our room. Everyone who worked at the hotel were so helpful and kind. The location was perfect for going to the beach, shopping, trying local foods or just walking around people watching. Steve was checking in with us to make sure everything was going well which it was. We would DEFINITELY stay at this property again next time we’re in Honolulu!

My two daughters and I stayed in Steve’s condo for a week on spring break. Everything was just a we would have imagined. The views from the balcony of Diamond Head and the beach are even better than pictured. And the city at night is beautiful too. We used the bus system for transportation rather than renting a car. All the bus stops were a block from the condo. And we were able go anywhere we needed on the island, even a trip to Costco for groceries. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed to cook with and the fridge was large enough to store everything we had; we saved a lot by cooking a meal or two in the condo each day. Steve was a wonderful host, very responsive, helpful with questions, and checked in to see how things were going. Steve also gave us a little later check out on our last day, which we GREATLY appreciated since we had a later flight to catch home that day. Thanks for a wonderful vacation on Waikiki!
