About
We are a family-owned and family-run hidden gem tucked away on a quiet side street in the heart of Waikiki, next to the popular running path along the Ala Wai Canal, with views of the gorgeous Koolau Mountains and the Waikiki skyline. Your private paradise is close to all of Waikiki’s major attractions, including the gentle surfing waves of Waikiki Beach, Kapiolani Park, the Honolulu Zoo, Diamond Head State Monument, the Ala Wai Golf Course, and the Waikiki Aquarium. You’ll be just steps from Waikiki’s unparalleled shopping, dining, surfing, historical landmarks, gardens and parks. Our property consists of two buildings – our main tower and a 2-story building that holds 10 beautiful studio suites with kitchenettes. The two buildings share a sun-filled, easy-going pool area with a 70-foot swimming pool and outdoor Jacuzzi.

Yes there is. It's a complete full breakfast and a standby chef is there too. You must wake up early and compete with others for the breakfast food.
