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.

Great for the price!

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely a small no-frills condo. Everything in this unit is completely functional and useful for your stay. Alexei was a great communicator and checked on us regularly. I would recommend this place if you're looking for a place to sleep and shower.. you're in Hawaii, you should not be inside more than necessary :)

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Very prompt communications from the owners and smooth check-in process. The location in Waikiki is very convenient, close to the beach, near a bus stop. The room is modest but clean, comfortable bed, good shower. No separate kitchen, but there's a counter with a hot plate, fridge, dishes, etc. We had a great time!

Great for it's value

  • 4 of 5

The owner (Alexi) is super helpful and willing to answers many question to ensure our experience is enjoyable. This room is perfect for couples who are cost conscious during their travel. Very clean and building is not noisy at all. It is within few minutes walk to Wakiki and many other great restaurants.

However, please note that there's limited public parking space in the garage immediately below the building. There are alternative for parking at the Bayan building if you wouldn't mind walking couple blocks.

Everything we needed and more !

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. It was the perfect location and was fully equipped with everything we needed. It was the little things that made the difference like having hangers, beach towels, dish soap, paper towels and a hair dryer. It's a fully functioning home and you don't have to buy anything to make it so. The air conditioning unit worked phenomenally and the kitchen was stocked with everything you could want.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

I arrived late at night and had no difficulty finding the elevator fob and condo based on directions provided. The condo was very tiny and neat. There is also a small lanai.

The kitchenette consists of a cupboard with a counter, a small bar fridge, microwave, a hot plate and a coffee maker. The dishes are washed in a basin with water from the bathroom sink. I purchased an additional basin to drain the dishes and a toaster oven to bake food. There is no chest of drawers for clothes. The sounds of the neighbors coming and going were easily heard due to the open nature of the tropic construction. Traffic noise was loud due to being directly on the main drag, Kuhio Avenue.

The first morning after I arrived the sprinklers were tested all morning with announcements over the intercom. The internet was down for 1 1/2 days and I had no water for the last two days I was there. In fairness to the owners, these incidents were nothing that they could control, but instead building issues.

When the internet went down, Alexei was very quick to respond and called the internet provider right away to solve the problem. I stayed for the month of February 2017 and would recommend this condo for one person or a newlywed couple who still want to stay in close proximity to each other and don't spend much time in the room. The location is fantastic!

Owner's Response: Aloha to Debbie and to all of our future guests! Thank you so much to Debbie for writing a review, we appreciate every opinion we receive. It is unfortunate that all of these events mentioned fell into February, when Debbie had her monthly stay with us. No building in Waikiki is immune from them, whether it is a hotel or a condo. This building is no exception, and these things do happen from time to time, although extremely rare. Most of our guests do not even notice, unless they read the sign in the elevators, since very few spend their day in the room. We own several properties in different parts of Waikiki, and this Studio is one of the quietest among them. It is on the back side of the building, facing courtyard, not on the busy Kuhio Ave side. However, visitors from more rural areas sometimes are not used to the general background sounds of the metropolitan area, and it might take some time before you stop noticing it. Visitors expecting a complete quiet might want to stay away from Waikiki altogether, as there is no escape from some urban noise there. Internet downtime is very rare, and it is nearly always fixed on the same day it is reported. Unfortunately, in February it happened on Sunday, right before a major public holiday, so it took cable company a bit longer to take care of it. Water shutdowns had never taken more then 4 hours in the past when they are scheduled once or twice a year for routine maintenance. Emergency repairs in February was the first one to take longer, but the water was available in the morning, evening and nighttime. The watermain breaches happened in many parts of Waikiki over the years, as proximity to the ocean salt water makes maintenance much more difficult. City emergency crews are very fast to respond, and most of the time all is fixed before the guests return from the day at the beach or exploring the island. Mahalo nui loa for reading and I hope you enjoy our island as much as we do! Kind regards, Alexei
