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 hotel in 2013

Why Alexei and Matthew chose Honolulu

Only steps away from the most famous beach in the world, it offers an a amazing, incomparable view of the Ocean, and Diamond Head at the same time. On the edge of the Kapiolani Park, this view is preserved forever. It offers the best of the both worlds: hotel amenities, plus convenience of your own kitchen, at small fraction of the price, that a comparable hotel suite with the similar view would charge.

What makes this hotel unique

We fell in love with the view, it still has that old charm of beautiful Hawaiian nature, long lost elsewhere in the hustle and bustle of the major tourism mecca of Waikiki.

Best view in Waikiki!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd time in this condo and we'll be back! Very clean and comfortable 6th floor unit overlooking Kapiolani Park and Kuhio beach at the Diamond Head quiet end of Waikiki. Listen to concerts at Waikiki Shell from your bed or lanai chairs. The full plate glass wall & door that looks like a giant picture of Diamond Head, except that you're actually looking at the real thing! Highly recommend this for a great stay in Waikiki!

Amazing Little Condo

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a 6 night stay at Alexei and Matthew's condo in the Waikiki Grand Hotel. I really enjoyed my stay. The unit is compact but has everything you need and more. Every pot, pan, dish or utensil that you would need is supplied. Also, shampoo, body wash, hand cream, bandaids, Kleenex, cleaning supplies, beach chairs, sun umbrella, boogie board and more. The number of channels on the tv seems to be endless, there is always something you can find to watch day or night. The views of the beach, Diamond Head and the flamingos at the zoo are amazing. There is a nice green space across the street where you can find a bench to sit and relax or have a picnic. Waikiki Beach is a no more than 5 minute walk from the condo. Teddy' Burgers downstairs is a good choice for a breakfast, lunch or dinner. One night for dinner I bought a burger and brought it back to my condo to eat on the lanai along with a salad I made. Another night, I bought fries to go along with salmon fish cakes I made. Made for very easy and reasonable dinners. There is always nice cold water available in the lobby. Emails are answered very quickly, even when it's a silly "how do I lock the door". Internet is good. Thank you Alexei and Matthew, if available, I will definitely stay in this condo next time I visit Waikiki.

This is a remodeled hotel room, containing a queen bed, side tables, wall converted into a kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

This place at the east end of Waikiki next to the zoo and park was perfect for me. The views are over a lush green park with Diamond Head in the back. On the lanai you can see the ocean one block away. The room was well equipped with any beach or small kitchen amenities. I loved the location away from the maddening tourist crowds and access to the park. Alexis was always available via email and the hotel front desk was very helpful. I opted to not rent a car and use public transport if needed. Buses are readily available. I would return here if Honolulu called to me again.

This is a great central location, if you wish to be near Diamond Head.

We have stayed in this area for a few years.

Owner's were very good to deal with.

Near to many Transit routes.

Beach Noise can be an issue ...Sunset Beach Movies...but, seriously, nothing wild or late.

Very clean unit..
