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 third acquisition on the island, and we are happy to share it with visitors to the beautiful Hawaii.

Alexei and Matthew purchased this studio in 2014

Why Alexei and Matthew chose Oahu

This is our 3rd purchase in Waikiki. What sold us on this Studio is it's ideal location. Busy Kalakaua and Kuhio avenues are just half block away, while Koa Avenue offers a welcome retreat. You're still just a few steps away from everything Waikiki has to offer, yet on a quieter, less travelled street.

Comfortable Getaway from our Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend, Alex and I stayed in this apartment for a week. The apartment felt immediately like home with its warm decor. I very much appreciated how clean and thoughtfully put together it was. The lay out is cozy and had the perfect amount of room for 2 people. It is a 2 minute walk from everything you would want to see in Waikik; the beach, the shops, the restaurants, car rentals, the bus, the zoo. There were so many occasions where I would think, "I really wish I had a _____.", I would open a drawer or closet and there it was! The owners were very thoughtful in everything put into the apartment for their guests; water purifier, extra towels, beach towels, beach chairs, glassware, plates, and cups, band-aids, hair dryer, iron, cooking supplies, coffee maker. Literally EVERYTHING. Alex personally liked the large lounge chair.

The patio was one of our favorite spots to sit, talk, eat and just take in the moon, stars and sounds of the waves. With so much going on in Waikiki and everything we did, I looked forward to escaping to the apartment which soon felt like home. Staying in, baking a pizza and renting a movie while enjoying the Hawaiian air through the patio is one of my favorite memories there. It is a true gem for the price. Thank you so much Alexei and Matthew for making my first trip to Hawaii and Alex's 15th so great!

Quiet, comfortable and perfectly positioned off of Waikiki beach

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I visited Waikiki for a week and we couldn't have been happier with our stay at this Seashore apartment. This place couldn't be more central to Waikiki beach and the surrounding shopping. We walked everywhere and rented a surfboard from the shop adjacent to the building. The peekaboo view of the ocean could be seen from bed. The room as a whole was cozy and small, but the floor to ceiling Windows made the place feel very spacious. The bathroom and kitchen were also small, but everything was perfect for what we needed. This place is great for a couple who is looking for a place that is centrally located, walking distance to the beach, but wants something different than you're average Waikiki resort. I would highly recommend this spot and will definitely look up availability next time I am in town!

A clean and comfortable stay in a very convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

Alexei has a very nice, updated, quiet, and comfortable apartment. While the building itself is tired and outdated, this unit was very clean, quiet, and quite comfortable. You really will have a hard time beating the location and comforts of this unit. It is only one block away from the main strip of Waikiki and the famous Duke statute. The beach, grocery, surf rentals, and many good eateries only steps away. I really enjoyed my stay and Alexei was very quickly attentive to my needs and queries. Mahalo nui Loa Alexei!

Great apartment, Great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is great. Neat, clean, and a delight to sit on the balcony and stare at the blue water. The location is excellent, less than a block from the beach - right in the heart of Waikiki!

Excellent condo for couples

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to Hawaii to attend a wedding and celebrate our 10 year anniversary. Neither of us had been to Hawaii before and Alexai and Matthew's condo was perfect for this trip! We decided not to rent a car and had no trouble getting around Waikiki Beach. So many restaurants and shopping within walking distance, as well as the Honolulu Zoo and the aquarium. Beach was just 2 blocks away and ABC stores are everywhere. The owners were so easy to work with while planning our trip. They answered several questions I had about our stay in an extremely timely manner. The condo itself is very small but never felt cramped or tiny. There are beach towels, beach chairs, and an umbrella to use. Condo was very clean and comfortable. My husband and I loved staying at The Seashore and will definitely come again!

Favourite place in the world

  • 5 of 5

This was my third and my boyfriends first time in Hawaii. He loved it just as much as I did and the location of this apartment was central to everything. It also had everything that you could need while on holiday and the building manager David was really nice and helpful as were the owners. Would definitely consider booking this apartment again.
