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.

So much better than a hotel room!

  • 4 of 5

Larger than a hotel room, quieter than any hotel and with much more to offer. This small but perfectly located and extremely well set-up condo allows the freedom to cook basic meals if you want, you have a coffee maker, iron, hairdryer, towels, beach towels, EVERYTHING you could possibly need. Very impressed. If you've only stayed at hotels, this place will surprise you with it's amenities and the value for money.

Great, cenral location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here when I attended a conference at the Outrigger. I didn't want to pay the prices at the Outrigger and wanted to be close to the venue. Everything about the unit was great. The owners were very responsive, polite and attentive. The coffee in the room was GREAT !!!

It was a great spot and a place to call "home" during our stay in Waikiki.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and met all of our needs! They provided beach towels, snorkeling gear and beach chairs which was awesome. Working with the owners was great - they always responded promptly and made the process easy to navigate. The condo is only a few blocks from the beachfront of Waikiki and we were able to navigate pretty easily. If you're renting a car, parking is challenging as the garage is very small, hard to locate initially and expensive (but, so is parking everywhere). We found parking at Waikiki Banyan a few blocks down which was a but cheaper and worked well. I think Oahu is pretty easy to navigate so if you can go without a rental car then go for it - if you get a car than I would plan on parking elsewhere. Thankful we found this place!

great location, clean and easy

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Hawaii, and the place met our needs. We just wanted something clean, safe, and close to everything, and this place did all of that. It had a secure elevator, and it was nice having the 24-hour store off the lobby in case you had questions. It was such a quick walk to the beach, and even better, it was on both the bus and trolley routes, so we would just leave the place and hop on the next one to go anywhere in Honolulu. We did laundry downstairs (great to have it within the property), and we ate at the food truck that is right in the same log--delicious! We were able to save some money by buying some groceries and heating up a few quick meals there, and it was great to have the little extras like the beach towels and bag chairs there at the place. We had trouble with cable the second day we were there. We e-mailed, and right away it was going to be fixed with an appointment with the cable company (it ended up coming back on its own by the time we got home from the beach). Every communication was polite and helpful. I would definitely say here again. Hawaii is amazing, and we had no complaints about staying here for our 10-day stay.

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.
