About Gerard

We've been living in paradise for 20 years, and we are still discovering new beaches, new trails in tropical forests, new amazing snorkeling reefs.

Ask us for any advice, or allows us to be your guide.

Gerard purchased this condo in 2009

Why Gerard chose Waikiki

We have three suites in the Pacific Monarch. We love the place: when you open the glass doors of the lanai (Hawaiian for balcony) it's as if all the room was a lanai. You feel the tropical breeze, watch the surfers, and wonder where your day will bring you...

Yes we loved this unit and our stay

  • 5 of 5

All of the pics and representing of this unit are accurate, it is very clean and comfortable with kitchen having all you need for your stay, we picked this one for its location, as we were not intrested in a car rental and it worked out perfectly. We had more than enough shopping choices within walking distance, restaurants,clothing, gifts and of coarse the beautiful beach.we used the local bus system to hike Diamondhead it was about 12 minutes away, we would recommend that to all who are in the area, it was very easy to use and the front desk was very helpful in pointing you to all kinds of activities and grocery stores. On the strip you can check out and book any and all excursions you want. We used Charlies taxi to and from the airport which is flat rate so in the event of any unforseen issues the meter is not running. They were on time as requested and clean,professional. We did not use the pool on the roof but it was nice and we'll kept, along with lounge chairs and a great view. We had just a few questions for Gérard which he answered very promptly and booking this unit was a breeze. Both my wife and I would not hesitate to recommend this unit for anyone who is intrested. Thank you very much Gérard it's a great unit centrally located in waikiki with everything that we were looking for. The unit also has beach chairs, umbrella, and snorkel gear, along with towels and a beach bag too. It also has a safe in the room for your peace of mind.

Perfect Location in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

All the other reviews are quite accurate. A great place to stay in a perfect location. The unit was very clean, the king bed was sooo comfortable, and all the little extras were a nice bonus. The building is in a great location with easy walking access to great beaches, shopping, and restaurants. The bus stops right next to the building and can take you to other areas you might want to visit, that are a bit to far for walking. We even took the bus up to Manoa Falls and then enjoyed the hike up to the falls. We only had one problem during our stay (poor internet connection) but Gerard and Veronique acted promptly and replaced the malfunctioning equipment. Anyone following us will find the wifi is fast and reliable : )

Exactly as described. Everything you would need is there. The only things missing are a chef, a butler and a maid. Gerard was very prompt answering any questions we had. We would recommend this 21st floor unit to anyone. Location is great. A short stroll to Kuhio Beach, also shopping and restaurants are all within walking distance.

This apartment is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The facilities in the building including parking, pool area and location make it the perfect place to stay in Waikiki. The added extras of beach chairs and snorkeling equipment were greatly appreciated and frequently used. Little things like the quality beach towels, welcome pack and kitchen supplies made our stay stress free. Our daughter said the daybed was very comfortable and the wifi was brilliant. We would be more than happy to recommend Blue Rentals and are already planning our return visit.

I call this my home in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

I never wrote any reviews in my life.

I just got back from Hawaii yesterday and this is the first thing that I am doing after I unpacked all my luggages.

I and my husband couldn't believe what we were seeing when we walked in to the place.

Everything was as it was written, so clean and organized.

We will definitely come back on next trip to Hawaii.

We couldn't ask for more but just wished it had come with free parking :)

Just a few things that I want the owner to know:

1. One of the snorkelling gear set is missing a mask.

(we went to Hanauma bay and found out that a mask was missing and had to walk all the way back to the parking to get money to rent a mask :( )

2. The door doesn't close very well. On the first night, we came back from a grocery shopping and so shocked to see the door wasn't closed. Checked out the unit immediately but everything was find. We just let the door go thinking that it would just close but you have to pull real hard to close it.

3. The keys didn't work well.

A few days after arrival, we realized that one of the key didn't work. So we used the other key but on the last day none of them worked. It was right before the check out time so we were so freaking out and ran to the front dest. Thank got they made a copy. We went up but still not working. Went down again and they fix them up and this time they worked. Phew!

4. The shower handle needs to be pulled real hard!

5. The parking fee is $25 per day not $20

Other than that I couldn't ask for more! (Maybe the parking ;))

We are thinking of going to Hawaii next year already and we will book this place again for sure!

Thanks Gerard for sharing your lovely place with us.

(There are some Musubi in the fridge I forgot to take them with me Sorry! But bottles of water and juice we left them for next people)

Thanks again and I will talked to you soon ;)

Perfectly located condo furnished with Aloha

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Hawaii and staying in a condo. The condo is very nicely furnished and everything has been thought of; whenever we thought we needed something, we would look in a cupboard or the wardrobe and there it was. The view was amazing, although being scared of heights I didn't get too close. The only small issue is that the air con seems very loud and we could not sleep with the door open as I was too scared (long way down).

It was also great being able to have breakfast in the condo as I was worried about eating every meal out. Actually eating my cereal with that amazing view was pretty unbeatable.

We can't wait for our next trip to Oahu and will definitely stay at Gerard's amazing condo.
