Property description

Gary’s Place is not a hotel and not on the beach, no surprises here. High 30th floor with FREE wifi and local calls!

LOCATION: Located at the intersection of Kuhio and Royal Hawaiian Avenues. This places you at the hub of Waikiki. The beach is a short walk, bus service in front of the building, several convenience stores within ½ block, tourist shopping within 1 block, super market short blocks, International Market Place is 3 short blocks. Walk, ride, or drive you are in the right place.

THE BUILDING: The Royal Kuhio is 38 stories tall and has a number of preferred amenities. Entering the beautiful lobby you will notice the security station and 'keyed' access doors to the elevator lobbies. The 7th floor boasts a number of options. You can simply sun bathe, or avail yourself of the pool, exercise room, saunas, or putting green.

To keep the kids occupied the 7th floor also offers ping pong, billards, paddle tennis, and ½ court basketball. Both charcoal and gas BBQ’s are available. A large covered carpeted open air lanai is available for your enjoyment. Just in case you need to wash a few clothes the 7th floor coin operated laundry has more than 20 washing and drying machines. In building parking is available for a daily fee with unlimited 'in/out'.

THE CONDO: Gary’s place is privately owned and non smoking. It is located on the 30th floor of the building facing the quiet and serene Ala Wai, golf course, and the mountains. The condo is designed to offer the client a wide range of choices. For example, the full kitchen permits you the choice of full meal preparation, light meals, snacks, or just cold drinks.

Temperature comfort: open the lanai door and feel the breeze, or turn on the ceiling fan, or for those that like it simply cold close the door and “crank up” the A/C.

BATHING OPTIONS: The combination tub shower allows you to choose either a soothing “soak” in the tub or a refreshing shower ranging from very cool to steaming hot.

ENTERTAINMENT: A 27” flat screen remote control cable T.V A combination radio/CD player, A combination VHS/DVD player. Or perhaps just the quiet and a good book. Also, for the home video folks the T.V. is capable of viewing your camcorder via cables or “S” plug-in.

SLEEPING OPTIONS: The condo is equipped with a king size bed and a queen sleeper couch.

COMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT : FREE high speed internet. WIFI, or ethernet direct plug-in. FREE unlimited local calls. The phone is direct dial long distance and international call capable with credit or phone cards.

THE KITCHEN: Just in case 'eating-in' is your preferred option the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, casserole baking dishes, blender, waffle maker, rice cooker, crock pot, toaster and coffee maker. The fridge is a full sized 18 cubic feet, 4 burner stove with oven and broiler, microwave, and of course a dishwasher.

LINENES: Bath and bedding linens provided.

ANALYSIS: Gary’s place is centrally located; offers many choices, provides vacation value; the building has excellent facilities, is well maintained, and offers 24/7 security.

I hope to hear from you soon concerning a reservation, but if you find another better suited value for your vacation I wish you a wonderful time in Hawaii, a place that I fell in love with many years ago.
