Gracious and intimate best describes this distinctive property. From the moment you set foot on the rich Italian marble lobby, you are embraced with abounding elegance. The attention to detail in this perfectly located Pacific paradise leaves little to be desired.
The hotel/condo was built in 1977 by the Japanese, during a time when money was no object. The main building materials are marble and gold leaf.
The room is a good size, much larger than a hotel room, you will be very comfortable. The view is from the 18th floor and in one direction you see the mountains in the other the Pacific Ocean.
You have 24 hour valet parking at $35/day, or park for free on the street.
The condo is adjacent to De Russey Park, and the De Russey Park Beach. This is a very nice area where the 'Beautiful People' go. There are also free tennis courts in the park with night lighting.
It is a short walk to the Hilton Hawaiian Village, and the Royal Hawaiian Pink Palace, or the Sheraton Mona Surfrider; but it is also very, very, nice to return to the quiet of this condo at the Royal Garden, and get away from all the hoi polloi, and crowds of tourists, and children. So you get the best of all worlds, all within a five minute walk.
The world famous Ala Mona shopping centre is also nearby. The bus stop is 1/2 block away. There is no need for a car. This luxury condo is much nicer than a hotel room.
FROM THE GUEST BOOK:
'My husband and I really enjoyed our three week stay. We travel to Waikiki every year but this was the first time that we rented an apartment. The condominium was clean, well equipped and close to everything the city offers. We are already planning our holiday for next year, and hope to have the same condo for years to come! (Katlin Simons, Newport Beach).'
'The apartment is very lovely, and the chandelier is so elegant. It is quiet roomy, very comfortable, functionally equipped, and quiet. It is well situated, close to the central park, the beach, and all the attractions, with a reliable bus service too and from the airport. The shops include Prada, Burberry, Ives Saint Laurent, etc. There are plenty of restaurants. If you need any help in deciding what to do the staff can make recommendations. Waikiki has a lot to offer, and we had a lovely time there. (Darlene McCully, Paris, France)'
Why stay in a hotel, this luxury condo is much, much nicer, at about the same price. This condo is central to all the fun, but away from the crowds of tourists.

This Unit has a California King Size bed. There is a fold down couch bed as well. The view is on the much preferred Diamond Head side of the Building, which has an Ocean view towards Diamond Head. This side of the Building has a much better view towards the Ocean and Pacific Trade winds come straight in the Large lanai door.

About Paul Brooks
We fell in love with this building when we walked in the marble lobby. It was like walking in to a fine hotel in New York or London. We had looked at many properties in Waikiki but this put them all to shame. We felt like we were living in the Hilton which is only a few blocks away. The unit had a similar view but was much larger that the $400 plus per night room we had at the Hilton. We liked it so much we bought 3 units for retirement. Two are next door to each other with the idea of connecting them one day. For now we have 3 kids and live in San Diego, but one day this will be our home.
Paul Brooks purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Paul Brooks chose Waikiki
We love Wiakiki. My wife and I came here on a trip to Australia in College. I am from Australia and have never been to Hawaii and she is from Pennsylvania. We road scooter all over the island and loved it. We knew we would be back one day and now we have a plan..
What makes this Condo unique
The staff in this 4 star Hotel are like family. If you ever need anything just ask and they are always so friendly and helpful. The kids loved the pool and the Sauna.. Shopping and the best Food and markets are all right outside the door.

Clean and comfortable
All went well.
Great hotel, room and staff. Very comfortable bed. Close to beach, shopping and restaurants.
Location was perfect
The stay could of been more comfortable and cleaner. The bed rocked as if it wasn’t probably set up correctly. The pillows were way to soft. I finally got to sleep on the third day and that was after using beach towels to prop my head up. The shower was disgusting. Every time we would cut the water on nasty stuff would start to come up from the drain. That experience was not pleasant at all. To top it off there’s a basket in the bathroom and I didn’t realize until the end that it was probably for our towels to go in for laundry. However I saw that the inside of the basket was a little dirty, turning a little dark gray and when I went to left the basket up there was mold dust all under it. Very disgusting!! I have asthma and I wondering why all of sudden I had started coughing the entire trip. Well that’s probably why! Other than that the view and location was great. Just an FYI, need to check your cleaning service. There not doing a good job.
I know the Tropics can be tough if you have bad allergies. There was a problem that week with the unit above us and the hotel was working at fixing some of the units plumbing .. Sorry that some of their efforts to clear the pipes ended up pushing a little back up into your bathtub. The hotel would have been happy to send someone to take care of it. We swap out all our linens several times a year and use the best sheets and pillows we can find.. As you can see in the reviews almost all our guests rave about how comfortable the bed is.. but if your head has to be upright due to your sinus issues and you use a pile of towels it must be hard to get comfortable. Will let the cleaning crew review your letter.. Thanks for the feedback.. Just give us a call next time the Owner of the cleaning company is happy to come by and check on any issues.
Not what you think.
The front lobby and staff are a 4+ star, but the room itself barely rates a 3. The bathroom was too dark, with only one bath towel each. The kitchen didn't even have spoons. There wasn't a broom and sand built up each day from our clothing etc. We were there 6 nights walking sand from the floor into our bed sheets. The bed was comfortable and the TV worked fine. Location is OK too, but heads up if you think the lobby and actual room are the same quality.
The cleaning company is in the building every day if you needed more towels you just needed to ask us and they would deliver them.. Will check on the spoons not sure why these would be missing we always have a full set of silverware in the draws will also check that the bathroom light has a bright enough bulb.. There is a vacume available I will make sure that a broom is also added to the closet... Hope you had a nice time... Paul
Clean, comfortable, great location
This was my first time renting a condo on vacation, but would absolutely rent this one again. The location was great, very true to the description. It was close enough to the busy streets of Waikiki, and located on a quiet side street for peace and quiet. The staff was very mannerly, helpful and made everything easy. Paul, the owner was able to answer all of my questions and was very personable and honest about the property. I loved it and would rent again next time I'm in the area.
Great stay at VRBO # 514889
VRBO # 514889 met all my expectations. It was clean, sufficiently roomy, quiet, comfortable, and had all the essentials. My wife and I both loved it! Eating out in Hawaii can be expensive so we managed costs by preparing and eating breakfast and lunch in the room. My wife and I agreed that if we return to Hawaii, we definitely want to experience VRBO # 514889 again.
This is the quiet area of Waikiki by the park.
