Guestbook comments from the owner

"Hi Hank and Marcy,

We are entering our last week on Oahu! This has been a Top five trip for us and as usual it all starts with Condo 1908 at the Royal Garden! We have done so much this trip including running the Hapalua 1/2 Marathon ad climbing Stairway to Heaven. We will be sad to go for sure." "I think "Until Later" in Hawaiian is "Laters"! :) We climbed to the top of Makapuu Lookout today for the first time ever. (Hard to believe, I know!) The view was amazing and I think we even saw some whales out past the lighthouse! It rained in the morning but since then, full blown sun! This has been a most wonderful trip! Tomorrow we do our last climb of Diamond Head. We hope to get there early enough to watch the sunrise from the top! Glad business is booming for you, no doubt why though as I look out the window/wall to the best view you can imagine. Thanks again for sharing your home away from home with us, we truly love being able to stay here year after year! Take care and thanks for all the kind words!"

lovely condo in heart of Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay here. The condo is well-appointed with everything we needed for a great long weekend in Waikiki. The owners were very helpful and VERY thorough in getting us ready for our stay in the condo. It is a quiet building, only a ten minute walk to the beach. The pool was lovely, the fitness center had nice equipment and was never busy, and we loved using the community BBQ as well.

The condo is ornately decorated and all the furnishings are quite beautiful, but it put us a little bit on edge as we worried we might ruin something. The owners were very gracious and helpful, and also very specific about ensuring their belongings didn't get dinged/dented/stained etc. through emails prior to our stay and notices in the condo itself. It was tough to get completely comfortable there when we were constantly concerned about damaging the lovely furnishings. But again, the owners were kind, gracious and friendly all throughout our time dealing with them. Our deposit was refunded very promptly and our stay in Waikiki was great thanks to them.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your 5 Star review. We personally love that the Royal Garden at Waikiki is in a quiet part of Waikiki, but still close to everything. We do have an excellent, and thorough cleaning team that prides themselves in making the condo the best it can be for each incoming guest. Warm Aloha.

Amazingly relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay. The check in was quick and painless. The room was immaculate. The view was good and thanks to the height there was very little road noise. The bed was comfy and the AC did its job quickly. The keyless entry made life very easy. The only downsides were that the lanai is narrow, and the bathroom door does not provide a barrier to the natural smells that occur in that room. There was amble drawers and storage. Good wifi and a decent TV. A well stocked kitchen (down to a pineapple peeler!). The service in the lobby is amazing, we interacted with about 20 different employees and all but one was fantastic. The location is perfect for anyone willing to use his or her legs. You can walk to Ala Moana Mall or Honolulu Zoo and everywhere in between with ease. If you’re driving you can get on H1 quickly (from there you will have to deal with traffic but that is the same with ANY Waikiki rental).

We are so grateful for the use of this unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your outstanding review of our property. We were delighted to know that you were so pleased with the quick and easy check-in process, the keyless entry, the comfy bed, the well-stocked kitchen, the secured and dedicated WiFi in the condo, the ample drawers & storage, the fantastic personnel service staff in the Lobby, and the “perfect” proximity to everything from the condo. Thank you for taking the time to post such a lovely review of our property and we were very happy to know how grateful you were to be offered our special condo for your “amazing stay” in Waikiki. We look forward to offering you our luxurious condo again in the future!!

Elegance and Luxury? Oh yeah.

  • 5 of 5

This property is more than you can garner from mere photographs on the site. If you're sleeping on the "port" side of the bed (pardon my Coast Guard euphemism) you're going to sleep with a spectacular view of Honolulu lights outside that huge picture window view. Daytime or night time pictures just do NOT do it justice. The condo is a studio and somewhat small, but it's opulent and elegant and high living. The staff at the Royal Wyndham treat you like... well, the Duke and Duchess of Kent no matter if you're a proletarian apartment dweller (no, we're not, that was purely for dramatic effect but it is true).

It's not beach side living, but then, it's better in respect to the fact that it's handy to everything. The Waikiki trolley stops for the green and pink lines are a block away and that's important, trust me. It's within walking distance of the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the Illikai as well as the International Market. We were exploring Waikiki every night and walking home within a reasonable distance. I daresay that for the price, it's *perfectly* located. When you get home? It's just living the high life given the furnishings, the way the staff treat you... I can't say enough about this place.

I corresponded with Marcy and she was a sweetheart, very engaging, very charming. Next time we're travelling to Waikiki, this is the place we're booking. You won't find this kind of value for this level of accomodation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great your review of our property – it was wonderful to know that you enjoyed everything so much starting from our spectacular views from the wall of windows, to the lavish & elegant accommodations we provide, to what we also believe to be the most perfect location in Waikiki for both daytime and nighttime activities!! The staff is truly friendly, welcoming, cordial, gracious and attentive to all who come to The Royal Garden at Waikiki. You were delightful guests and we look forward to your return visits.

Stunning place and just lovely people all around!!!

  • 5 of 5

Both my wife and I decided to have somewhat of a babymoon at this lovely VRBO just off Waikiki beach before our impending bundle of doom... err I mean joy arrives in December 2012. What a fantastic decision we made as we were warmly greeted on arrival by staff who were very helpful and extremely polite throughout our stay. The facilities at the Royasl Garden are first class and I havent even gotten to our actual room yet!!

Our apartment looked and felt like a cross between Buckingham Palace and a Versace Hotel! Complete with Kitchen so we had the option to cook our own meals, it had a stunning view of Waikiki from the balcony with beautiful furniture throughout. If you want the option of staying in a ritzy European hotel but only in Waikiki then this really is the place for you...

The owners are really lovely people too and were more than accommodating to our needs.

We will be recommending this place to our friends and cant weait to stay again soon after the birth of our little daughter.

Cant wait to be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review of our property! We were just delighted to hear how much you appreciated the design of our condo’s interior, as our goal is to have the extravagance of the hotel lobby flow seamlessly into our condo leitmotif for our guests. It is very much appreciated that you celebrated in the European flavor of our place right here in Waikiki. Thank you, also, for your lovely note you left behind for us and we were extremely pleased to know that you had “a fantastic holiday, one we won’t soon forget!” Warm aloha, Marcy & Henry

  • 5 of 5

I almost do not want to give this review because I would like to keep this place all to myself. This is not our first stay in Waikiki/Hawaii, nor is it our first stay at the Royal Garden; however, it is the very best rental accommodations we have ever stayed in in Waikiki. The descriptions do not do justice to what you actually get. To begin with, the Royal Garden is a wonderful building that harkens to a previous time when life was actually on "Hawaiian Time". It truly has everything and what it might be missing is close by! The staff is amazing and if you like having the door opened for you, this is the place!

The vacation rental is amazing, the view is spectacular! Your 180 includes Mountains on right and ocean on the left with Honolulu in the middle! It is really breathtaking (even for us after 40 years of vacations to Hawaii at least twice a year). The room itself is prepared for the vacationer with obvious care. The bed linens are crisp & soft, You could not use all the towels that are available and we were there three weeks. There is every manner of cooking utensils, plates, silverware, cups, glasses, (including wine, beer, & champagne) and small appliances from the rice cooker to the coffee grinder, it has it all! There is plenty of room, private internet, everything you need to keep things clean including an iron & ironing board & a free laundry on the fourth floor! It even has a blow dryer & a curling iron in the bathroom!

Finally, I have to give a shout out to the owners. I cannot say enough about them. From the moment we made our reservations in August to after our arrival, the did everything above board with customer service that was the best ever. All questions were answered promptly, contracts were delivered quickly, & they had everything ready at the Royal Garden so all we had to to was arrive!! They truly are amazing and no I did not know them before we stayed there.

In closing, I would just like to add that we loved it so much, we are already booked to stay there again!
