About Steve Marcotte

We have been in the Hawaii Vacation Rental business since 1993. (click see All My Rental Listings below to view our other properties and read reviews).

Steve is a real estate broker and has been licensed in Hawaii since 1999. Iku is a licensed real estate agent and a native Japanese speaker. We have traveled extensively and this gives us an understanding of what our guests need to make their stay enjoyable and safe. And being owners of rentals gives us the experience to help others buy and sell rentals and second homes.

We founded a vacation rental company named A Piece of Paradise on Hawaii Island (aka The Big Island) in 1996 and managed wonderful vacation homes in a special area named Kapoho. In 2011 we sold A Piece of Paradise and began relocating to Honolulu. A multi-year search for properties followed, and our hard work paid off!

In addition to managing our own properties we also love to help others buy their own piece of paradise in Hawaii. Even if you cannot live in Hawaii full time, It is a wonderful feeling to know that you have property is here and you can come whenever you want. And when you are not staying at your property the rent can help pay the bills.

Why Steve Marcotte chose Oahu

The number one reason we bought this property is for the AMAZING VIEWS! Everyone that walks in the door is surprised by the panoramic 270 degree breathtaking view of all of Waikiki.

In addition, it is a spacious penthouse with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with large open living/dining/kitchen area.

What makes this condo unique

The jaw-dropping 270-degree view sweeps from the beautiful Koolau Mountains, to the Ala Wai golf course and canal, majestic Diamond Head, a large green park, and of course wide ocean views in addition to both sunrise and sunset!

This unit has a special location. In addition to all the services and features available without leaving the building, it is convenient to the Waikiki Convention Center, Hilton Waikoloa Village, Ala Moana Shopping Center and Waikiki Beach Walk.

Great views

  • 5 of 5

It was awesome to have a washer and dryer in the room. Steve was great with communication. Everything was within a mile. Make sure to rent cars daily and do in advanced. Parking is not cheap. Penthouse was great for 6 people. We left 3 blow up rings to add to the collection.

Very comfy stay.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5. We slept very well having good comfy beds makes a big difference in your vacation. We loved the apartment. I love how the kitchen is fully furnished and you can cook a full meal if you want to. Having a washing machine and dryer in the apartment made it so easy for us. There is Ac's through the apartment and I love the fact that each area has its own AC control. Yesterday it was 95 degree outside but we didn't feel it. The AC in the family room was on AMD I didn't need to turn the AC in the girl's bedroom on as the cold air was coming into the bedroom from the living room.

There is beach chairs and towels and some sand toys for the kids. My kids are older so they didn't use these toys even tho I wanted to use them lol.

Omg wait I should have started with the view. The view is out of this world. I love looking out of the windows early morning for sunrise.

Steve is very nice gentleman whenever we texted him or called him he would respond right away.

Parking is available but if you do what we did and rent the biggest car in the island make sure you take the outside parking so you don't hit the top of your rented car every time you try to park your car. There is restaurant and cafe in the lobby there is a car rental office, small overpriced store if you want water or milk and there is a nightclub I think or bar as well. Like you don't have to leave the building at night if you are not in the mood to leave. U can have dinner and go clubbing. At first seeing the club made me nervous but in our 10 days stay we didn't have any issues. It's very very comfy and safe building.

if we ever come back again to this island I will be for sure renting the apartment again if it's available.

Thank you Steve for being amazing host and for allowing us to stay in your apartment as your guest.

Could enjoy three-direction views at the same time, but some disappointments available also

  • 4 of 5

We stayed seven nights from later June to early July at the 40th-floor condo room of this highrise condo-hotel complex (Hawaiian Monarch). As you could see from the attached photo, we could enjoy every morning till night magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean, lines of houses on the uphill residential discticts beyond Ala Wai Cannal, and of course, ever-changing colours of the Diamond Head. Surely, Waikiki is perfectly free from smog, and we have keenly learned clouds over this Island moving continuously from east (mountain-side) to west (sea-side). We had temporarily felt being an active meteorogist.

Needless to say, there are many plus factors about this condo having a big living room with windows facing to three-directions, but some negative points got into our sight. First, as this complex is close to 40 years old, like myself already passing 70 years old, there was a trouble (not so serious) at the sewage system in the kitchen sink during our stay, and sound of elevator ups-and-downs was heared on the bed pillow during night. Second, as this condo stands between two main-trunk roads (Ala Wai Blvd. and Kalakaua Ave.) , lots of siren sound from emergency cars invaded our rooms especially during night. We have keenly recognized that many emergency medical service cars are moving around this place throughout the day. At this Heaven Island, there are many occasions to call for such emergency service, unfortunately. We have felt being an active ambulance chaser, in this case meaning not maney-making lawyers but sincere medical doctors.

To sum up, we really enjoyed various tree flowers (as I like much white plumeria) around this island. Thank everybody involved this VRBO-rental systems for this valuable experince. On thing to add---I unfortunately got a disease of being dizzy last February due to perhaps temporally catching a cold, and still feel dizziness some time. Back to Kobe, Japan, I am still now dancing hula without partners.

Waikiki Beach - 10 minute walk
Car: not necessary

The world famous Waikiki Beach is only a 10 minute walk. Many restaurants (Thai, Japanese, Hard Rock Cafe, Irish, Wolfgang's Steak House, Italian and MANY MANY more) are within walking distance.

People attending conventions in Honolulu find the Penthouse a reasonably priced alternative to staying at a hotel. If family members are traveling too then it is even less expensive compared to a hotel.

It is within easy walking distance of popular convention facilities such as the Hawaii Convention Center, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Ala Moana Hotel and the Hawaii Prince Hotel. It is also within a longer walking distance or short drive or taxi ride to meeting and conventions at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa, Waikiki Beach Marriott, Sheraton Waikiki, Halekulani, Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach and the Royal Hawaiian.
