Why Henry Wetzel & Marcia Roberts-Wetzel chose Waikiki
The Royal Garden at Waikiki is located in a very safe, quiet & peaceful setting in Waikiki on Olohana Steet. Olohana in Hawaiian means 'rare'. This is a truely rare and elegant building built to showcase beautiful marble flooring, marble walls, marble columns, gold leaf crown molding, exquisite gold leaf mirrors, gorgeous chandeliers, hand painted ceiling frescos throughout the Front Foyer & Lobby areas. The grand marbled entrance from the sidewalk is spectacular, the gold revolving door side valet entrance & the marbled elevator foyer with marble accents is done with gorgeous European styling. The building is located in a lovely quiet & peaceful neighborhood in Waikiki on a residential street away from the hustle & bustle of typical Waikiki Condo buildings & far away from street noise, yet only 1/2 block walking distance to all the action. There is fabulous dining out choices of all price ranges, so close by the condo that you can walk to everything there is to see and do in Waikiki while here on vacation. Our condo is so centrally located, many choose to not incur the cost of renting a car for their entire trip, since everything is within walking distance. Guests can rent cars right here in Waikiki just for the day or two that they might want to leave magical Waikiki!

A Lovely Jewel Set in the Heart of Waikiki
When we decided we wanted to stay in Waikiki for three weeks, we realized we would prefer a condo as we would be able to eat in some of the time. When I first spotted this property, my husband and I were quite intrigued and totally enchanted. Everything looked elegant with a warm colour scheme and beautiful furnishings. We decided to select this as our home away from home. The owners were lovely throughout our booking experience, very informative, and most patient with my many questions, answering each one thoughtfully and thoroughly. When we arrived, it was everything we expected and more. One couldn't ask for a better outfitted place--all the comforts of home! The bed was extremely comfortable. It was obvious the owners expended a great deal of time and thought in planning the layout and decor; it showed in every little detail throughout the condo. The view was just beautiful--at night the city lights offered a beautiful backdrop, and during the day, we had views of the Ala Wai Canal, lovely mountains, the city of Honolulu, and bits of the ocean. The amenities were wonderful--a fully-equipped kitchen and bath (great shower head!), plenty of closet space and drawers galore.
The condo is located in a really nice part of town--one doesn't hear the city noises when trying to sleep, and it bespeaks every realtor's dream...Location! Location! Location! We were within a short walking distance to the beach, the bus stop (Note--"The Bus" will take you anywhere on the island you might wish to go!), and downtown Waikiki. Security was excellent, and everyone was so nice. We would highly recommend this condo; in fact we plan to return as soon as our schedules allow. Ginnie
lovely condo in heart of Waikiki
We had a very nice stay here. The condo is well-appointed with everything we needed for a great long weekend in Waikiki. The owners were very helpful and VERY thorough in getting us ready for our stay in the condo. It is a quiet building, only a ten minute walk to the beach. The pool was lovely, the fitness center had nice equipment and was never busy, and we loved using the community BBQ as well.
The condo is ornately decorated and all the furnishings are quite beautiful, but it put us a little bit on edge as we worried we might ruin something. The owners were very gracious and helpful, and also very specific about ensuring their belongings didn't get dinged/dented/stained etc. through emails prior to our stay and notices in the condo itself. It was tough to get completely comfortable there when we were constantly concerned about damaging the lovely furnishings. But again, the owners were kind, gracious and friendly all throughout our time dealing with them. Our deposit was refunded very promptly and our stay in Waikiki was great thanks to them.
Thank you for your lovely review, and for taking such great care of our condo during your stay with us. We do enjoy providing accommodations that give our guests a vacation that is a step above the ordinary lodging here in Waikiki.
Excellent lodging conditions
Excellent lodging conditions, very good location, very very clean.
Thank you for your 5 Star review. We personally love that the Royal Garden at Waikiki is in a quiet part of Waikiki, but still close to everything. We do have an excellent, and thorough cleaning team that prides themselves in making the condo the best it can be for each incoming guest. Warm Aloha.
We had an amazing stay. The check in was quick and painless. The room was immaculate. The view was good and thanks to the height there was very little road noise. The bed was comfy and the AC did its job quickly. The keyless entry made life very easy. The only downsides were that the lanai is narrow, and the bathroom door does not provide a barrier to the natural smells that occur in that room. There was amble drawers and storage. Good wifi and a decent TV. A well stocked kitchen (down to a pineapple peeler!). The service in the lobby is amazing, we interacted with about 20 different employees and all but one was fantastic. The location is perfect for anyone willing to use his or her legs. You can walk to Ala Moana Mall or Honolulu Zoo and everywhere in between with ease. If you’re driving you can get on H1 quickly (from there you will have to deal with traffic but that is the same with ANY Waikiki rental).
We are so grateful for the use of this unit.
Thank you very much for your outstanding review of our property. We were delighted to know that you were so pleased with the quick and easy check-in process, the keyless entry, the comfy bed, the well-stocked kitchen, the secured and dedicated WiFi in the condo, the ample drawers & storage, the fantastic personnel service staff in the Lobby, and the “perfect” proximity to everything from the condo. Thank you for taking the time to post such a lovely review of our property and we were very happy to know how grateful you were to be offered our special condo for your “amazing stay” in Waikiki. We look forward to offering you our luxurious condo again in the future!!
Elegance and Luxury? Oh yeah.
This property is more than you can garner from mere photographs on the site. If you're sleeping on the "port" side of the bed (pardon my Coast Guard euphemism) you're going to sleep with a spectacular view of Honolulu lights outside that huge picture window view. Daytime or night time pictures just do NOT do it justice. The condo is a studio and somewhat small, but it's opulent and elegant and high living. The staff at the Royal Wyndham treat you like... well, the Duke and Duchess of Kent no matter if you're a proletarian apartment dweller (no, we're not, that was purely for dramatic effect but it is true).
It's not beach side living, but then, it's better in respect to the fact that it's handy to everything. The Waikiki trolley stops for the green and pink lines are a block away and that's important, trust me. It's within walking distance of the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the Illikai as well as the International Market. We were exploring Waikiki every night and walking home within a reasonable distance. I daresay that for the price, it's *perfectly* located. When you get home? It's just living the high life given the furnishings, the way the staff treat you... I can't say enough about this place.
I corresponded with Marcy and she was a sweetheart, very engaging, very charming. Next time we're travelling to Waikiki, this is the place we're booking. You won't find this kind of value for this level of accomodation.
Thank you for your great your review of our property – it was wonderful to know that you enjoyed everything so much starting from our spectacular views from the wall of windows, to the lavish & elegant accommodations we provide, to what we also believe to be the most perfect location in Waikiki for both daytime and nighttime activities!! The staff is truly friendly, welcoming, cordial, gracious and attentive to all who come to The Royal Garden at Waikiki. You were delightful guests and we look forward to your return visits.
Stunning place and just lovely people all around!!!
Both my wife and I decided to have somewhat of a babymoon at this lovely VRBO just off Waikiki beach before our impending bundle of doom... err I mean joy arrives in December 2012. What a fantastic decision we made as we were warmly greeted on arrival by staff who were very helpful and extremely polite throughout our stay. The facilities at the Royasl Garden are first class and I havent even gotten to our actual room yet!!
Our apartment looked and felt like a cross between Buckingham Palace and a Versace Hotel! Complete with Kitchen so we had the option to cook our own meals, it had a stunning view of Waikiki from the balcony with beautiful furniture throughout. If you want the option of staying in a ritzy European hotel but only in Waikiki then this really is the place for you...
The owners are really lovely people too and were more than accommodating to our needs.
We will be recommending this place to our friends and cant weait to stay again soon after the birth of our little daughter.
Cant wait to be back!!
Thank you for the wonderful review of our property! We were just delighted to hear how much you appreciated the design of our condo’s interior, as our goal is to have the extravagance of the hotel lobby flow seamlessly into our condo leitmotif for our guests. It is very much appreciated that you celebrated in the European flavor of our place right here in Waikiki. Thank you, also, for your lovely note you left behind for us and we were extremely pleased to know that you had “a fantastic holiday, one we won’t soon forget!” Warm aloha, Marcy & Henry
