About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

A JEWEL!!! Renovation has been completed in this privately-owned and managed studio in the Wyndham Royal Garden at Waikiki. Why stay in a 'budget' hotel when you can call this elegantly-remodeled studio with fabulous view your 'home' in Waikiki. Suitable for a brief vacation or a stay of several months, this unit has been designed for your comfort. On the 17th floor of the Royal Garden at Waikiki, you will have an open, airy and serene view of the Ala Wai canal, mountains and even a bit of ocean. And, you won't see any neighbors from your private 17 ft long lanai.

Newly-renovated kitchen area perfect for breakfast and post-beach snacks as well as full dinners if you choose. Having the ability to 'eat home' sometimes will make your vacation truly affordable--much more so than in a hotel. While not part of the hotel, you may enjoy many of the hotel amenities including, sumptuous lobby, 24-hour manned security, swimming pool, brand new fitness center, free laundry facility and the warm 'aloha' of a very friendly staff.

You will feel at home from the moment you arrive. The Royal Garden is a 'boutique hotel' on a quiet street--Ft DeRussy side of Waikiki near Halekulani and the new Ritz-Carlton. The hotel portion, owned by Wyndham Vacation Resorts, has completed substantial upgrading and renovation. This privately-owned unit has already been totally redone!

No need for a car--walk to the beach, restaurants, shops, major hotels and all the excitement of Waikiki without the crowds. Bus nearby to downtown, Convention Center, Ala Moana Shopping center, etc. No need for a car but parking is available in the hotel's garage for extra fee or nearby garage. This spotless studio has been FULLY renovated with porcelain tile floors throughout, cherry wood cabinets, an expanded kitchen area and all new furniture. Suitable for 1 or 2 people, the unit has a queen bed, comfortable leather sofa (with 2 ottomans for resting after a full day of fun) and a dining table and chairs.

The newly-designed kitchen area has a full-size refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, 2-burner portable cooktop, coffee maker and rice cooker. Linens, dishes, utensils and cookware provided. The 17 ft long lanai overlooks the Ala Wai canal--perfect for watching canoe races. Some ocean view too! Great view of Friday night Hilton fireworks. High floor with wonderful breezes but also has A/C if you prefer. Cable TV and Wi-Fi in unit included at no extra charge. Sorry, no pets and absolutely no smoking in unit or on the lanai. Minimum age is 25 for primary guest. Maximum 2 people (including infants and children).

Monthly rentals also available.

Here's what some of our past guests have had to say:

*****'My wife and I really enjoyed our time in Waikiki. The apartment was in an ideal location for us. We are walkers and bus users. Royal Garden was an easy walk to Ala Moana, Sam’s Club/Walmart and Don Qujiote for groceries. Just a hop across Ft DeRussy to the beaches and the commercial area of Waikiki. The bus stops were almost out the front door. From the lanai, we enjoyed watching the canoes and rowers on the canal. The New Year’s Eve fireworks were incredible. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. Nice peek a boo view of the ocean, skylines of downtown and the clouds over the mountain tops. Don’t think we could have been in a better location. Had a pair of house finches visiting us everyday. Fun watching them. The apartment itself was just right, the bed was comfortable. Slept well every night - of course that could have had something to do with all the walking we did. Lastly, but very important, the price was very fair.'

*****'This is a great place to stay. Not only is it newly remodeled but it's very clean, quiet and comfortable with everything you need for a vacation to the Waikiki area. The beach is a 8 minute walk, and all of the major shopping is within 5 minutes. There's an ABC store just down the street. The view is a great city view where you can watch the crew teams on the canal during the day and the amazing lights of Honolulu at night. Plus you do have a break between buildings where you actually get a good view of the Ocean. I would definitely stay here again!'

About Margaret Sheehan

Aloha! We are Margaret and John, the owners of this little 'jewel' in the Royal Garden Hotel. We love to stay here ourselves when we 'come to town' and enjoy the central location but quiet ambiance. When we renovated this unit, we did it with an eye towards our own comfort--so we know you will like it too. We are both licensed real estate professionals--however, this unit is our own.

Margaret Sheehan purchased this condo in 2005

Why Margaret Sheehan chose South Oahu

Location, location, location. We bought this unit because it is right in Waikiki but on a quiet street just off the Ala Wai Canal. We can walk everywhere and enjoy the night life in Waikiki--especially the great local musicians who play at the nearby hotels. Also, the 17-foot long lanai makes this unit so light, bright and airy that a 'day at home' feels like we are outside. Thrilled that Wyndam is completing its very upscale renovations, we will be happy here for many years to come.

What makes this condo unique

This unit was a deluxe hotel unit (almost 350 sq. ft.)before it became privately-owned. Now, besides being a comfortable place to lay your head, it has an elegant seating area and totally-redone kitchen area that allows you to stay in and cook when you like. The renovation of this unit was TOTAL--all new floors, furniture, bathroom and kitchen area. The convenient location and amenities of a hotel, but much, much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Margaret,

I apologize I have not sent you a note after my visit to Honolulu two weeks ago. I went right back to work upon my return and now to hosting family visiting here on the mainland. Your unit was lovely as is the property, and I like the location in the Waikiki area being on a relatively quiet street. The staff at the hotel were wonderful, from security, front desk, and parking valets. This was my first time with a vacation rental and it did feel quite like home away from home. I was looking for the closet to hang clothes and did not find a rack in the cabinet/closet on either side of the bed, but then saw the coat/hat rack in the corner by the television with hangers so I was glad it was there. I had a car since I was doing some visiting and errands outside of Honolulu, and did end up parking the car over the weekend at the hotel since the street parking and the parking lot at the corner on Kuhio filled up early and quickly during this time. I would come back again and highly recommend to family and friends. As soon as I have more time, I will visit the review site and write one.

Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this apartment is excellent. It's near lots of shopping and the bus line, but is also within walking distance of most of Waikiki. It's a small, but serviceable apartment - essentially a hotel room with more comfortable seating, a table and chairs for eating, a small kitchenette area, and lots of towels. The lanai is great, with a really nice view of the canal. Use of the hotel's free laundry room was a great help. AC and Wi-Fi are excellent. Margaret was wonderful to communicate with.

This property is perfect for the individual or couple who want a central location!

  • 4 of 5

I chose this location because of its value and proximity to all Waikiki has to offer. I couldn't have been happier. The cozy little apartment had everything I needed during my week. I made good use of the free laundry facilities and the workout room. The lanai has a great view of the canal and sunsets and even afforded me a good view of the weekly Hilton Hawaiian Village fireworks on Friday evening! The owner was very easy to contact and always provided prompt responses to my inquiries. I look forward to staying here again someday!

Great value for the price! Great location

  • 5 of 5

This Studio holds excellent value for someone looking to save a bit of money on booking prices. It was everything I was hoping for! Great location (I could walk for all amenities), used kitchenette to cook numerous meals, the hotel staff was extremely helpful, and Margaret was awesome to deal with! Beautiful view from the lanai, great spot for one or two people. Gym in hotel is small, but nice to have, laundry facility was great and pool area was fantastic! I would definitely recommend this spot and would consider renting out again if I come back!

Good value for money

  • 5 of 5

Great price for a great location. As a travel agent I tend to stay in good hotels in the popular areas. This apartment was perfect, such good value for money. All the facilities we needed and plenty of towels which is so handy to have as I do like fresh towels and that's always the downside of staying in an apartment but not here.

If you plan on just staying in Waikiki you won;t need a car but we hired one for the duration of our stay. We were sometimes lucky enough to get parking out the front in metered areas other times we paid the $30.00 per day for the valet parking. The staff at Wyndham were very helpful and friendly.

Margaret was a pleasure to deal with and answered all questions promptly. Thank you Margaret, I wll be sending more people your way
