About Mark Howard

We are Peter & Diane we want to welcome you to our dream vacation home in Hawaii. We have been nuts about Hawaii since our honeymoon trip to Waikiki in 1973. Buying a cozy vacation home to share with children and grandchildren was a natural. We would like to share this modern, totally new, luxury two bedroom, with others looking to experience or rediscover the charm and wonders of Waikiki and the beautiful natural beauty of Hawaii. Just on the next street is the 'Heart of Waikiki' lined with little shops, the international market place, and a wide variety of Eateries. Famous Kalakaua Avenue is adjacent to the great Waikiki beaches. It is an ideal place for 'people watching' or going to world class stores. Then there is the rest of the Oahu to explore!

Mark Howard purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mark Howard chose South Oahu

We bought this property because it was brand new and equipped with all the modern conveniences that a person would desire in a vacation home. The location is in the middle of all the action where you can walk and visit the most famous hotels, beaches, and finest shopping.

What makes this condo unique

This large two bedroom, 2 Bath (1242 Sq. FT. and 251 Sq. Ft lanais) will accommodate large families and groups that really want to have space and luxury at the same time. The master suites and two separate bathrooms give you the privacy and comfort you desire when you want to relax and unwind on a vacation. You can experience so many awesome views and enjoy the comfort of a place with space to be together or alone whichever you desire.

Free Parking Stall Included!!

Feels Like Home!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to Hawaii and the Royal Kuhio was perfect. We were on the 32nd floor with amazing views on each side. The home was clean and felt so much like being at our own home. All the needs were met and we can't wait to return to Hawaii again. We loved how well we were treated by Rob, our contact person who welcomed us to the Royal Kuhio. This is a real winner!!

Needs a freshens up, old and tired.

  • 2 of 5

Good location and nice views from the lanais . The condo was very tired and needs a good makeover. A lot of the walls had scuff marks on them and it needs a good paint. The new floor tiles has to be the worse tiling job I have ever seen, with all of the floor area uneven. The stove is old and we could only get one of the hotplates to work. The sliding door off the main bedroom was nearly impossible to open, and one of the windows near the ensuite could not be opened. The air conditioners are all old with damaged switches and are very noisy. New air conditioners would be a great improvement. There were lots of bugs around the sink area and maybe flyscreens on the doors might help. I was pretty disappointed in the whole appearance of the condo. When you pay good money for the condo I was expecting a much nicer place.

Good location poor cleanliness

  • 2 of 5


Enough room for our group of 9

Good sized kitchen with common area

Decent view of the city and part of the water

Nice to have laundry in the suite

24 HR security was nice

Sarah responded promptly with any concerns


Little cockroaches on the kitchen counter on a daily basis. Perhaps nesting in the toaster?

Ensuite bathroom shower growing mold

Washing machine also had ring of mold around the edge. We cleaned it ourselves before using it

No smoke detectors. Scary on the 32nd floor

Only 2 fobs/keys for the entire group

Very good location

  • 4 of 5

The unit would need a bit of refresh (just a new paint would be good) but the location is perfect!! Overall I would definitely recommend the unit.

Good location; some minor/maintenance issues

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location. The building was nice and clean. We were not told that the key card could be de-magnatized by being held too close to our cell phones and therefore experienced several frustrating days of not being able to get into the garage or elevator until the security guard finally figured out what was going on with our key. Please be sure to share this information with future renters.

As for our condo, in general it was a nice place to stay. However, here are a few items to note:

1) We had two sets of keys; the key on one set did not fit or unlock the deadbolt

2) the oven was dirty

3) one of the bar stools was loose and felt like it would fall apart when you moved it or even attempted to sit on it

4) air conditioners did not seem to be working efficiently; most likely need to be serviced

5) bathroom fans did not seem to be working efficiently and were clearly full of dust; definitely need to be serviced

6) instructions on how to use the washer would have been helpful

We would definitely consider staying there again.

Great location; clean; sleeps only 8 adults

  • 3 of 5

This is a lovely condo with beautiful views on the 32 floor in a secure locked building. The kitchen is complete with all cooking items and salt/pepper. The condo is clean and comfortably sleeps 8 adults. The click clack bed may be ok for younger children but very uncomfortable for an adult. The pull out sleeper sofa is good for a child but not for an adult, as all sofa sleepers are the mattress is thin and full of springs. Although the bedroom mattresses are comfortable the linens/bedding are old, mattress pads are stained ( I know this because the sheets and its elastic are old and do not stay on the bed during sleep) On arrival the one bathroom was clean but attention to detail was missing.

To plan for your stay: there is parking for one car, which is very convenient but if you have 10 people you will have a second car...the parking is expensive! The free public parking is rare and with only luck will you find a space. An adjacent street, Seaside, has a parking lot associated with a hotel it is $35 a day with no in and out privileges. At the same hotel is an Enterprise rental car which acts much like Zipcar, may be an option for those occasional trips to the North Shore. Other parking sites had deals for a 10 hour period - like $15 from 4PM-3AM..AliWai parking is almost always full. Do not take a chance as the area will tow your car if parked illegal!

The condo has bath towels, beach towels , 4 boogie boards. Bring your own spices if you cook a lot. I gave the condo a rating of 3.5 only because I believe a 5 star will wow you on arrival... updated and matching bedding/ high quality towels and sheets. The condo is has an updated kitchen and one bath, but think an Embassy Suite vs a Four Seasons both are nice and the price reflects the quality. We were not greeted, in fact Sarah was not available and we waited for her real big deal but not 5 star. With 10 adults, we also ran into a day when we were without a key to the condo...there is a nominal fee to get in but Sarah was minus Aloha spirit.

We shopped at Safeway, get their shopping card for the sales because food is expensive in HI. Also get your coffee and chocolates here it is less expensive. The internet can get you anywhere! Travel out of Waikiki for less crowds/snorkle at Sharks Cove/you will see more fish and turtles/Hanama Bay is crowded. Hike Diamond head but bring water.. crowded with spectacular views.

Overall, this is a great place for the price
