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.

Relax, enjoy the views,

  • 5 of 5

The views from the condo were better than expected. You look out over a well cared for park, the entrance to the zoo, loved looking at the pink flamingos, and Diamond Head is in the back ground. Just to the right you have the beach.

The condo has a comfortable bed and nice linens, And my favorite, double pillows for everyone. It was supplied with beach towels, beach chairs, mats,and sun screen..

We didn't cook as there were plenty of coffee shops and restaurants with in walking distance. Loved the ABC store right on the corner that had all the basics.

The unit was perfect for my husband and I. It was fully equipped with everything we needed for our 10 day stay in Waikiki. The location was ideal and within walking distance to many shops, restaurants and the beach! We would absolutely recommend this unit to any couple traveling to Waikiki!!

Great condo, close to the beach, restraunts and nightlife

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful Hawaii experience! The studio was located in such a great spot. We were able to walk around all of Waikiki with easy access to the beach. Really great shopping a few blocks away with beautiful reatraunts right on the ocean. The view was also amazing, and there was a happy hour bar located on the 2nd floor of the building that served great mai tai! Super happy with our vrbo stay at the Waikiki Grand!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here for 7 nights in April 2017. We loved being right across the street from the Honolulu Zoo where we would occasionally hear the monkeys chattering. This unit is in the Waikiki Grand, only one-half a block from Waikiki Beach. It is close to great restaurants, beach-front drinking holes (try the Mai Tai Bar at the Royal Hawaiian), the International Marketplace (stumbled upon a free hula show there), the Zoo and Aquarium, etc. The unit is cozy and the kitchenette allowed for us to cook breakfasts and dinners, which we ate out on our balcony with stunning views of Diamond Head. The kitchen cupboards are fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, wine glasses, and utensils, and there is a small fridge. There is a mirror on the balcony so that even if you are facing away from the ocean, you can still see the ocean in the mirror, which is a really cool touch. We paid $17 per day to park in the gated, underground parking, which is a lot but parking is very difficult to locate on the street so it was worth the peace of mind. I would definitely stay here again!
