The Building:

Hawaiian Monarch is a 44-story, 144-unit condo/hotel built in 1979 and conveniently located at the western (“Ewa") end of Waikiki between Ala Wai Boulevard and the intersections of Ala Moana Boulevard and Kalakaua Avenue. The common areas, reception desk, and 50 of the 144 units are managed by the Hawaiian Monarch hotel and the remainder of the units are privately owned (some occupied by long-term residents and others being used as vacation rentals). This is a secure building with 24/7 security on site and keycard-only access to the elevators and above the lobby area. The building also has an attached parking garage but it is privately owned and not associated with either the condo or the hotel.

It's a great place

I'm so glad I found this gem! My husband and I both agree that we felt like we got so much more for our money. Jackie and Matt were so thorough and communicated every possible detail and info that we needed throughout our stay. The place has incredible views of the city with diamond head in the background and you can partially see the ocean, as well, just as the pictures show but it's more breathtaking in person! It's super cozy and really clean. There's a 7-11 conveniently located next to the building. This is my first review so I might not come up with everything I need to write but basically, we'll definitely come back and stay here again!

My husband and I had a wonderful week-long stay at Jackie and Matt's! This is a fantastic apartment located super close to pretty much everything. It's about a one mile walk to the beach with TONS of shopping and restaurant options available. We were also able to rent a car directly downstairs to travel around the island at our leisure one day. The location really can't be beat - especially for this price. Additionally, Jackie and Matt were excellent hosts and provided us with all of the information we needed before our stay to make our stay easy and comfortable. There is also a binder in the apartment full of fun tips about Oahu, activities, bus routes, etc. - super helpful! The pool area is fantastic and was usually empty any time we went up there. The apartment is definitely small, but it absolutely provides you everything you need for a nice home away from home, with a gorgeous view of the canal and the ocean! We would definitely recommend you stay here and will absolutely be back if we find ourselves in Oahu again. Thank you, Jackie and Matt!

This is a great condo that looks just like the pictures on the listing. The location is great, and just a short walk to most things in Waikiki, plus there's rental car service downstairs. The AC unit can get on the loud side, but it personally didn't bother us at all. The provided beach equipment including umbrella and mat were a helpful and nice addition, and communication with Jackie and Matt was super easy. Overall a wonderful place, and we would definitely stay here again!

The location of this unit is just perfect. Rent a car downstairs, hop in and explore the island from the super central and very convenient spot. The unit itself has everything you could ask for and more. Its super clean, and really allows for you to settle in and get relaxed. Jackie was super responsive as well, and helped with any questions we had. Great hosts, great place. Would absolutely stay here again.

Jackie & Matt User ProfileJackie & Matt is a superhost.


We’re East Coast (NY/PA/DC) transplants who’ve been living in Waikiki since 2008. We’re both working professionals (Jackie is a contract manager for a tech consulting firm and Matt is a web programmer for a government consulting firm) who love to travel, try new food, and meet interesting people. We currently own three studios in the Hawaiian Monarch building - one is on the 12th floor and the others are adjoining units on the 29th floor which have separate, locked entrances but share another entry door (all studios on the higher floors of the building have this setup). All are fully furnished with one queen-sized bed and are suitable for 1 or 2 people: - Small studio on the west (less sunny/hot) side of the building with a canal/mountain view. It has a small refrigerator, microwave and coffeepot but no kitchen. - Smaller of the two adjoining studios with ocean/Diamond Head view. Full kitchenette, including refrigerator, sink, microwave, stove. - Slightly larger adjoining studio with ocean/Diamond Head view. Also has a full kitchenette like the smaller unit but the overall unit has just a bit more space.

Our goal is to provide a clean, comfortable space at a reasonable price where our guests can relax after a fun day enjoying the beach and exploring the island. Since starting on Airbnb in February 2015, we have met many wonderful people from around the world and look forward to helping others enjoy their time in Waikiki.
