vacation rental description

Gary’s condo is not a hotel and not on the beach, but I CAN help
maximize your vacation budget!

LOCATION: Located at the intersection of Kuhio and Royal Hawaiian
Avenues. This places you at the hub of Waikiki. The beach is a
short walk, bus service in front of the building, several convenience
stores within ½ block, tourist shopping within 1 block, super market
short blocks, International Market Place is 3 blocks. Walk, ride, or
drive you are in the right place.

THE BUILDING: The Royal Kuhio is 38 stories tall and has a number of
preferred amenities. Entering the beautiful lobby you will notice
the security station and “keyed” access doors to the elevator
lobbies. The 7th floor boasts a number of options. You can
simply sun bathe, or avail yourself of the pool, exercise room,
saunas, or putting green. To keep the kids occupied the 7th floor
also offers ping pong, billards, paddle tennis, and a court
basketball. Both charcoal and gas BBQ’s are available. A
large covered carpeted open air lanai is available for your
enjoyment. Just in case you need to wash a few clothes the 7th floor
coin operated laundry has more than 20 washing and drying machines.
In building parking is available for a daily fee with
unlimited “in/out”.

THE CONDO: Gary’s place is privately owned and non smoking. It is
located on the 30th floor of the building facing the quiet and serene
Ala Wai, golf course, and the mountains. The condo is designed to
offer the client a wide range of choices. For example, the full
kitchen permits you the choice of full meal preparation, light meals,
snacks, or just cold drinks.
Temperature comfort: open the lanai door and feel the breeze, or
turn on the ceiling fan, or for those that like it simply cold close
the door and “crank up” the A/C.
Bathing Option: The combination tub shower allows you to choose
either a soothing “soak” in the tub or a refreshing shower ranging
from very cool to steaming hot.
Entertainment: A 27” flat screen remote control cable T.V. with
VHS/DVD combination player. A radio/CD combination player. Perhaps
just the quiet and a good book. Also, for the home video folks the
T.V. is capable of viewing your camcorder via cables or “S” plug-in.
Sleeping option: The condo is equipped with a king size bed and a
queen sleeper couch.

Communicatons equipment: FREE internet high speed - WIFI.  
Unlimited local calls. The phone is long distance and.
international call capable with credit or phone cards.

The Kitchen: Just in case “eating-in” is your preferred option the
kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, casserole baking
dishes, blender, waffle maker, rice cooker, crock pot, toaster and
coffee maker. The fridge is a full sized 18 cubic feet, 4 burner
stove with oven and broiler, microwave, and of course a dishwasher.
Analysis: Gary’s place is centrally located; offers many choices,
provides vacation value; the building has excellent facilities, is
well maintained, and offers 24/7 security.

I hope to hear from you soon concerning a reservation, but if you
find another better suited value for your vacation I wish you a
wonderful time in Hawaii, a place that I fell in love with many
years ago.

traveler reviews for this waikiki condo rental

Nice, clean, great view and very comfortable

Review submitted: November 7, 2013   Date of arrival: September 4, 2013

I am so used in staying at the Royal Kuhio since my sister has a time share, but unfortunately I can't get the dates that I wanted. I started looking around and found Gary's place, I will admit that I was skeptical at first because of the pictures but I said to myself, what the heck, it's affordable and I just needed a place to stay.

I was so surprised when I got to the unit, it was so much better than the pictures! My other friend paid more for her unit in the same building and Gary's place was much much better. It was so clean and smells clean! Bed was so comfy and kitchen was complete. Great view of Ala Wai canal, nice veranda, comfortable sofa plus you are all the way up on the 20th floor. I would stay at Gary's in a heart beat and highly recommends it! FYI, the location is in the middle of everything you need in Waikiki. Walking distance to restaurants, bars, shopping and of course the beach!

One very happy visitor

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Aloha Franciso, thank you for your review. I am so pleased you found Gary's Place exceeded your expectation! I too have always enjoyed the view from the 30th floor. I look forward to seeing you again in the future, and again thank you for your business! Gary

Aug. 2013 at Gary's Condo

Review submitted: August 29, 2013   Date of arrival: August 5, 2013

The Royal Kuhio is a great building in the Waikiki area. Being a few blocks off of the beach, the price is much lower than the big name hotels closer to the water, but an easy walk to the beach, parks, restaurants, etc. For a family with young children it might be a bit much if carrying all the boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs, coolers, etc., that Gary has available in the condo, but we found it convenient to walk to the beach for a bit, come back to rest/clean up, then go back out to the beach or other activities later. Please remember that there is so much more to do on Oahu than just the beach!

One of the best amenities is the parking garage--probably the best price per night in Waikiki--for when you want to have a car to tour the island. There is also a bus stop out front if you prefer. We saved money by having a rental car for just the last few days, then returned it to the airport before our flight.

Gary's Condo is on the 30th floor, on the quieter side of the building, with a beautiful, unobstructed view of the mountains and valley. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony last thing at night and first thing in the morning. The condo is a one bedroom by way of a pull-out accordion wall. This allows for extra room when it is open, but not as much privacy as if it was a completely separate bedroom. The furnishings, full kitchen, cable tv and wifi were all fine. The building is a mix of full-time residents and visitors, with security and office staff in the lobby--everyone was friendly and helpful. We felt very safe, as a key is required to get into the elevator area and garage, as well as having the security guard.

Gary was very easy to work with, and I would recommend his condo to friends. If you go, don't miss a single sunset or the Hilton Hawaiian Village's Friday night fireworks! Mahalo

Gary's Place

Review submitted: June 27, 2013   Date of arrival: June 8, 2013

Gary's place was an excellent condo that we enjoyed thoroughly.
We received the keys a month before our trip so we knew we had a place to stay.
The view from the lanai was a spectacular.
It is in 30th floor, no mosquitos.
The kitchen was equipped with clean appliances and had everything we needed.
We rented the car for entire trip, and the parking lot was so convenient and safe.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners response: Thank you Phil & Kim. Hope to see you again in the future!
