About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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

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 32" 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. 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.

LINENS: Bath and bedding linens provided. Beach
towels too!

ABALYSIS: 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I have been coming to Hawaii for a lot of years and seen a lot of changes. Experiencing Hawaii is what it is all about! For example, take the "Owner photo". I was hanging around Sandy Beach enjoying the day and the van in the background pulls up and out pops a gentlemen with his preteen age son. Slider opens and they haul out this leather couch, the one in the photo, and put it on the sand under the palm tree. I asked "whats-up", and the kid says my dad and I found this couch along the road so we thought it would be nice here under the tree. I thought so too! I very much enjoyed sitting on that couch watching "Hawaii happen" all the while enjoying my daily newspaper. This is "experiencing" Hawaii. Whenever I get the urge for grilled garlic shrimp, I mean the big ones, I head up to Titas Grill. Small little take-out cafe with tables across the street from Kahuku High school - up by Polynesian Cultural Center. Really "Ono"! Or, other days, I head up to Dillingham Field to watch the "kite-surfers". I mean they launch right next to you on this little beach. If I'm lucky I can pick up road side Rotisserie Chicken for dinner. Here is the best! I arrive at HNL around 3:00 PM, pick up rental car, drive to condo, change clothes, hop back in car drive to Rainbow Drive-in, pick-up pork cutlet plate (2 scoops rice, 1 scope rice, a lot of sliced pork and brown gravy, biggest diet coke, drive to Kings Beach, sit at picinic bench 50 feet from the beach, all the while watching the people and the sun dip into the Pacific. Yes, my friend Hawaii is all about the experience! Come join me! Gary
