About Alfred & Hildegarde Foltyn
Since teenage years my husband and I were dreaming about “Hawaii, you beautiful Hawaii...”!! Moving from East to West Coasts, closer and closer to our “dream” spot, we visited Hawaii for the first time in 1987 and fell in love with it. After returning almost every year, we finally decided to have a small place of our own for our family, our quests and ourselves.
Alfred & Hildegarde Foltyn purchased this Studio in 2008
Why Alfred & Hildegarde Foltyn chose Waikiki
Since the first time we stayed at Royal Garden many years ago, we always wanted to come back. It is beautifully build hotel with all great amenities, away from busy traffic and yet close to all excitement, Buses and Trolleys. Very short walk to the beach, stunning views, 24-hour manned security. When we found out there was a unit for sale, we didn't hesitate to take a look. We completely renovated our unit in 2008; put a lot of hard work and our sole into it to have “Home away from Home” for our family and also our quests.
What makes this Studio unique
Location, location, location!!! This was what we loved the most!! No need for a car unless you really want to rent one. Bus service on Oahu is absolutely wonderful!! You will never find it on other Island. Short 10 minutes easy walk through beautiful Fort De Russy Park to nice sandy and not crowded beach called “gathering place” for people from all over the world. Very short distance to many shopping centres like Ala Moana, Wall-Mart, Ross for Less, Don Quijote store, Waikiki and Royal Hawaiian Shopping Centre, King’s Village, close to downtown Honolulu, Convection Centre and University. Walking distance to many fast foods and fancy restaurants, offering meals price ranging from $-$$$$. But our studio has fully functional kitchen with 20” range with four burners and oven, other appliances and all utensils needed, just everything you need to have a choice to prepare some of your favorite meals or snacks at home. In the evening you can take a nice walk on Kalakaua Ave to watch or to take a part in art’s and musical performances and to visit many little stores offering souveniers. If too tired to go back to the beach to watch Friday’s night fireworks, just step out on our 18’ private Lanai and enjoy the view. When too tired and ready to rest, you will come home to a nice and very quiet place, to rest your feet up on the footstool, watch a little TV, put a nice movie in or listen to CD, relax and have a good night sleep on your very comfortable King size bed.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Wyndham to be improved!
Wyndham hotel staff did not impress us. As a vacation rental visitors we were treated like a second hand citizens compared to the hotel guests. We were not allowed to use their computers to print out our boarding passes and were sent to use a service near by. Location for us coming from the quiet country side of Victoria BC was way too noisy and busy. We found Waikiki extremely expensive. We will not return.
Studio suite was lovely and more than plenty for our needs. Very happy to found a crock pot and a rice cooker from the cupboard!!!!
The property is attractive and very clean.
We enjoyed the wonderful view from the condo, which was well equipped with everything we needed for
A comfortable and pleasurable stay.
Pleasant Stay in Oahu
We loved this property in Oahu, and Alfred and Hildegard, the owners, are very friendly and very helpful. They provided us all the information before our arrival and in their apartment you can find everything you need.
Condo is in a quieter area along the canal and you can easily reach Waikiki beach, Ala Moana or the shopping/dining area in Kalakaua Ave.
The apartment is well equipped, with WiFi, Television, Air Conditioning (very quiet), telephone and a nice kitchen. The bed is a king size and very comfortable, and the sofa as well.
There are also a couple of closet where you can store your belongings and a place to put your shoes, next to the entrance.
From the balcony you can see a nice view of Oahu, and on Friday you can see the fireworks of Hilton Hawaiian Village.
Less than a block away, you can find also an ABC store, which sells everything you might need (food, drinks, fruit, towels, souvenirs, cloths, ...).
The security is 24/7 and the staff of Wyndham is very helpful, even if you aren't their guests.
I would definitely recommend this place to everyone, and if we're going back there, we would stay again!

A Waikiki Gem
This was our first time renting from Alfred and Hildegard and we will definitely be renting again. The VRBO booking experience was flawless, the communication was prompt and accurate, and the VRBO listing description and pictures are 100% accurate (in case you have any qualms about using VRBO).
For our stay we especially enjoyed the pool area where there also was free WiFi available. Also we are light sleepers and the A/C was the quietest I've ever experienced and the drapes are lined, the condo is high enough that we heard NO waikiki noise at night. We also used the kitchen for nearly every meal and everything we could possibly require was provided.
As soon as we know our plans for next summer/fall we will definitely be in contact with A&H.
Mahalo for sharing your gem with us.
Hi Roy and Peggy,
thank you for your high rating. Glad you were comfortable.
Description and pictures are created by us and we made sure they are accurate. We also stay in our unit once or twice/year, constantly improving unit and updating pictures.
We installed brand new very quiet Mitsubishi air conditioner; have many unpleasant experiences when coming to Hawaii since 1987. Our drapes are custom made and are fireproof. :)
Looking forward to your soon return.

My boyfriend and I decided to try vrbo for the first time and we were so impressed with Alfred and Hildegarde. They were very responsive, informative and so accommodating. If you had any questions or concerns, they were very easily reachable. If by some chance you can't get a hold of them, the hotel staff, maintenance crew and security guards are all so polite and helpful! The space was nice and quaint, we loved it! Next time we're in Oahu, we will be back! Thank you so much, A & H, you were amazing!
Hi Kyle and Monica,

Glad your first booking experience through VRBO was satisfying. And thank you for been so pleased with our service. You also were awesome guests.
Looking forward having you back soon again.

Lovely place to stay. Close enough to Waikiki beach and downtown. Room has everything you need. The bed is really comfortable! Owners are lovely to deal with and provide you with plenty of information. We will certainly be staying again the next time we visit.
Loads of nice restaurants that are close by so you don't have to walk far for tasty food!
Excellent, nice & quiet, less traffic noise location and yet just ½ or one block to all buses and trolleys.
Very close to Ala Moana shopping Centre, Convention Centre, Downtown Honolulu, Chinatown, Aloha Tower and University.
Walking distance to many ABC stores, Waikiki and Royal Hawaiian Shopping Centre, restaurants, nightlife and beaches
