Hawaiian Monarch building is located in Waikiki, close to the Convention Center. It is about 3 blocs to the beach. Ala Monana mall is nearby, as well as supermarket Don Quijote and Walmart on one side; the opposite direction is main street Kalakaua with shops and restaurants, and more beaches.
Within Waikiki the best is on foot. There is the Bus, that runs through Oahu. By the lower lobby, there is a rental place with mopeds and smart-cars. Car rentals are one block over. There is no parking assigned to the unit; it is possible to rent parking stall from the building on daily/weekly bases.
There will be a packet with house rules in the unit. The rules are rather standard, asking residents not to create excessive noise, no illegal substances, no pets, ...
Beautiful place with a beautiful view. Barb was very accommodating. Would definitely book again (:
Very nice room! Cental location, therefore a little bit of traffic around. But you don't hear it in the room. Barb was very nice and caring. We would visit her anytime again.
Barb's apartment was exactly what I was hoping for in my overnight stopover in Honolulu. The place was clean, had all the facilities that I needed (air conditioning, refrigerator, microwave) and had a great view out to the ocean. Barb herself was lovely and very helpful. Will definitely stay again if and when I go back to Hawaii.
Great apartment. Barb was a fabulous and attentive host. Excellent communication through out. Would definitely stay again :)
Barb was quite accomodating and helpful before and during check-in (including a late change in reservation dates). Nice and clean.
I was pleasantly suprised by the very nice views (some ocean, but especially Diamondhead and canal). (Pro Tip: Bring a high-quality eyemask, if you want to sleep past sunrise.)
I saved a bundle by cooking a basic pasta dish for some meals. I was able to walk to Enterprise car rental to explore the island on my own. And it was easy to tell tour companies and taxi shuttles to pick me up from in front of the Hawaiian Monarch, when I didn't want to deal with diving in Honolulu traffic.
During a nearly two week stay, most everything went very smoothly. Late one afternoon, there was just one maintance issue (drain clogged due to issue with neighboring unit). Barb made sure it was completely taken care of before I got home from dinner.
If I visited Honolulu solo again, I'd definitely check if this unit were avaliable. Mahalo!
