This is our second stay and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else, we've gotten so spoiled with the location, included parking, and wonderful fellow guests in this building- after years of staying in hotels this has won our hearts. Love having a kitchen and although I am not on vacation to cook there were times it was just so nice to relax without having to run out for a meal. Nice large full size frig, and all the dinnerwear you need for four. I especially appreciate that he has some plastic cups for kids. And some plastic storage containers as we did cut up some watermelon and pineapple. The pull out accordion wall nicely divides the bedroom from the sofa bed couch at night. And we have met the nicest fellow guests and staff here. Perfect for us, we love visiting Waikiki. Gary is great to work with. Thanks for a 2nd great Amazing trip!!
We booked this place and boy were we glad we did! The apartment is located only 5 minutes away from the main Waikiki beach, opposite a 24 hour McDonald's in case you get peckish and fairly central to where everything is going on.
Starting with the owner Gary who we sadly never met, was fantastic. After I booked the property he advised he would be sending the Key's in the post to us in the UK which for me was a first but Gary calmed my nerves as we were going world travelling and were unsure what would happen if we didn't get them etc. Was really great at that.
We got the Key's anyway no problem and they worked fine.
The property is located on the 31st floor out of 38 floors in total so very high up! It had a kitchen with all you could want amenities, good WiFi, TV, shower, bath and a great bed. Also had air conditioning which was a life saver! Be advised it does fill up so you need to empty the water manually in the bath but this was not an issue.
The balcony was fantastic and many a night was spent up there. Also, because it's high up and rather windy, mosquitos never venture up there which is always good!
The car parking was a godsend. We hired a car and the metal fob on it worked a charm to open the gate. Private parking spot as well. Gary again helped us and explained all of this over email whilst we were there.
Really couldn't fault the property. Two of the three elevators were out of service the whole time but this shouldn't be a problem for people arriving soon. Also, a tip. If there is an issue with them then go to the right of the lobby and get the elevators to the 32nd floor and walk down two small flights of stairs. People rarely used it so it was very quick and you didn't need to stop at all the other floors.
Thank you Gary you were fantastic. All the best.

Could not have had a more perfect time, Loved the location, the people and staff were all wonderful, helpful and quick to smile. So quiet up there on the 30th, great parking spot. We rented another unit in Apr as this was already booked and that parking spot was challenging. And although 2 blocks away theirs a much lower floor so plenty of street noise, this was sheer heaven.
The little touches made for such a nice stay, plastic containers for the fruit we bought at the market, great refrigerator, we were not on vacation to cook but he had what you needed if you wanted to. Our grandson loved having McDonalds right across the street. Easy walk to the beach. Appreciated the use of the boggie board :0)
We cannot wait to stay again and I know we will have to plan sooner as this unit will be in demand- so perfect for us. One tip I can offer, we were our first day and the car leaving ahead of us did not see the pressure plate to open the garage gate, fortunately a helpful person coming in opened it for him- did I mention how great everyone in this building is! Anyway, when you pull out, easy to run your car wheel over this pressure plate- the security in this building was fantastic, we also used the laundry room in the building- HUGE. Pool temp delightful.
There is also a handy little tour company in the lobby that we used to book a luau as I didn't have a printer, even saved a few dollars through them. Please don't get too popular, we want to come back and stay again! We have been to Waikiki 6 times and nothing else came close. Thanks so much for making it the perfect vacation.
This was my first visit to Hawaii. I was pleasantly surprised at the location and how nice the condo was. The bus stop is directly in front of the building; restaurants and shops are within walking distance; nightlife is bustling we couldn't hear a thing. The condo was ready when we arrived. We appreciated the extra linen and kitchen items. Free parking was a definite plus! I would definitely stay at Gary's Place again.
Excellent! Wonderful vacation, Wonderful Gary, Wonderful Condo, Wonderful location, Wonderful Hawaii...Will be back! Love!
Stayed at Gary's place for 3 nights on our way back to Australia. It is comfortable and really central to everything in Waikiki. Really enjoyed our stay there. Will look it up next time we go to Waikiki
