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 studio in 2013

Why Alexei and Matthew chose Oahu

This Studio offers the best value. One and a half block from the most famous beach in the world, one block from the best shopping areas, and the fun and lively Kalakaua street. Hyatt, Hilton, Westin and Marriott are about a block away, but you'll pay only a fraction of what they would charge for often an inferior room and service.

Perfect location and place!

  • 5 of 5

Great location your are not going to find a better location at this price! Literally 1 minute walk from the beach. Convienent store at the bottom and there are A LOT of delicious food places right next to you, all the shopping areas are 2 streets away. Also a delicious deli right next to you! They were great made sure to check up on us upon arrival. I definitely plan on staying here again!!

Only thing I would suggest, is to remove the rug on the wall and get an actual bedframe.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking your time to write us your review. We appreciate all feedback we receive. For the benefit of our future guests, I would like to point out that most condos in our area do not come with parking. The best part of Waikiki was built-up first, back in the late fifties and sixties, when much fewer cars were around. That means we now have to rely on public garages for our parking needs, or stay in a later built-up, farther away corners of Waikiki, that might require driving everywhere. Or be prepared to pay at least double of what we charge in our area. Most of our guests prefer the convenience of being able to walk everywhere over an inconvenience and expense of an additional $25 spent on public parking garage in our building, or $20 at neighboring property public garage. We are absolutely convinced that even with the cost of parking added, we still, by far, offer the best value for your money for comparable properties in our part of Waikiki. Thank you for staying with us!

Great Location in the Heart of Waikiki

  • 4 of 5

The studio is small but had everything we needed (kitchen utensils, snorkeling set, beach towels etc) for a great stay. Waikiki beach is just a couple of blocks away and there is a bus stop right outside the building which was great for us. On a couple of instances we heard noises while sleeping maybe from the adjacent studios but overall we were pleased with the stay.

Very central

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and tidy, but very tiny. We could have paid extra for another to stay, but they would have had to sleep under the bed. It was very central to everything, but the parking was impossible and the cost $25 for 24 hours under or down the road $20 for 24 hours, no discount for weekly booking. Prob wouldn't stay there again as the parking overshadowed the convenient of the location. Prefer to stay just 2 buildings down where parking is included for less than the $25 a day.

Perfect for what we wanted/needed

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I were in Waikiki for a wedding and wanted a place that was central, cheap and easy. This studio apartment met all our needs and then some. The location is fantastic only a few streets back from the main section of the beach near the Duke statue. The room was comfortable and clean with the added bonus of beach towels and snorkelling sets. This little added extra was fantastic.

The building was really secure and you needed your key to get into the elevator so we felt that our belongings were safe when we were not there.

There was a small kitchenette that was useful.

All interactions that we had the Alexi were very positive and the replays to my questions came very quickly.

Over all we had a great holiday in Waikiki and our accommodation was great.
