About Alexei and Matthew

We're a couple of Seattle transplants, that just recently started to grow our Hawaiian roots.

It has been our favorite vacation spot for over 15 years, now we can finally call it our home.

This charming studio is our second acquisition on the island, and we are happy to share it with visitors to the beautiful Hawaii.

Alexei and Matthew purchased this hotel in 2013

Why Alexei and Matthew chose Honolulu

Only steps away from the most famous beach in the world, it offers an a amazing, incomparable view of the Ocean, and Diamond Head at the same time. On the edge of the Kapiolani Park, this view is preserved forever. It offers the best of the both worlds: hotel amenities, plus convenience of your own kitchen, at small fraction of the price, that a comparable hotel suite with the similar view would charge.

What makes this hotel unique

We fell in love with the view, it still has that old charm of beautiful Hawaiian nature, long lost elsewhere in the hustle and bustle of the major tourism mecca of Waikiki.

Pleasant stay. Nice view from lanai. Hot water was a problem. Would recommend a new coat of paint otherwise unit was fine.

This place at the east end of Waikiki next to the zoo and park was perfect for me. The views are over a lush green park with Diamond Head in the back. On the lanai you can see the ocean one block away. The room was well equipped with any beach or small kitchen amenities. I loved the location away from the maddening tourist crowds and access to the park. Alexis was always available via email and the hotel front desk was very helpful. I opted to not rent a car and use public transport if needed. Buses are readily available. I would return here if Honolulu called to me again.

This is a great central location, if you wish to be near Diamond Head.

We have stayed in this area for a few years.

Owner's were very good to deal with.

Near to many Transit routes.

Beach Noise can be an issue ...Sunset Beach Movies...but, seriously, nothing wild or late.

Very clean unit..

Great place, perfect for the Waikiki area

  • 5 of 5

Alexei was thorough with pre-/during/post-stay communication. On arrival hotel staff was pleasant, and we paid separately for the hotel parking and got a great assigned spot. No issues with unit access.

The unit itself was just as described/pictured. Tastefully appointed/decorated, with all you really need.

Yes, not roomy but perfectly adequate - we've had smaller. The view was stunning. The patio had a little too much direct sun for the middle of the day, but mornings and evenings were wonderful watching the flow of things. And as a bonus the 10th floor had a common veranda with a wider view of things.

Would be our first choice to stay again in Waikiki.

Lovely, cozy unit in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

Lively apartment, in a great location. The hosts were very responsive and thoughtfully supplied beach towels and other accessories. The unit is on the small side. But that's really only an issue if you plan to spend a lot of time at the unit, which you shouldn't if you're visiting Hawaii. The view from this unit are fantastic.

The one room apartment was in perfect condition. The view was one of the best in Waikiki.

  • 5 of 5

Our week on this property was more than we expected. The apartment space was small but incredibly efficient. Everything we needed was in the room. Check-in couldn't have been easier. We actually preferred this location than others we've stayed at in Waikiki, the bus just a few steps away across from the zoo. Alexei made everything so easy and welcoming for us. We would definitely recommend this property to others.
