Hawaiian Monarch, Waikiki HI Homes & Real Estate
Hawaiian Monarch, built in 1979, is a 44-floor condotel in West Waikiki hosting 439 studio, 1-, and 2-bedroom units. This building has excellent access to various nearby restaurants and activities, as it sits directly between Ala Wai Boulevard and Kalakaua Avenue. In other words, guests with access to vehicles are able to travel further into Waikiki or Northwest towards Midtown Ala Moana, opening their opportunities for great experiences while staying at Hawaiian Monarch. However, even those who plan to travel on foot will have access to an amazing variety of activities and eateries.
Hawaiian Monarch is also one of the few buildings on O'ahu that allows legal short-term vacation rentals.

Hawaiian Monarch is situated near two of the largest parks in the main Waikiki area- Ainahau Triangle and Fort DeRussy Beach Park. These parks feature sprawling, flat green lawns that are popular for picnicking, exercising outdoors, playing with pets, and spending time with friends and family. Plus, these parks are lined with trees that provide cool shade if the Hawaiian sun becomes too intense for you or your pets. There are also paved walking paths that lead throughout the parks, making this a peaceful spot partially separated from the "concrete jungle" of Waikiki.
Just a bit further South and you will hit the beach portion of Fort DeRussy Beach Park, which features a long and wide (compared to other beaches in the area) beach with gorgeous white sands, crystal clear blue water, and views of Diamond Head in the distance.
Hawaiian Monarch, conveniently, is also located less than one block from Kalakaua Avenue, which is the largest and most popular shopping street in Waikiki. This street stretches across the entirety of the main portion of the city, with various designer-brand, fast-fashion, and local shops lining the streets (as well as many restaurants and cafés). As a result, Hawaiian Monarch guests have access to this amazing shopping strip on foot or by car, leading to endless opportunities for nightlife and activities. In fact, taking Kalakaua Avenue all the way down to the Southeast portion of Waikiki will bring guests to one of the most well-known and popular beaches in Hawai'i- Waikiki Beach. This incredibly popular landmark is constantly packed with people who love to spend time sunbathing, surfing, swimming, bodyboarding, and more, with food stands and nearby restaurants ready for any nearby people who need a food or drink pick-me-up.
Being located in the Northwestern portion of Waikiki also means that Hawaiian Monarch guests have easier access to the Ala Moana Center, which is just a 5-minute drive from the condotel. This shopping mall, which is the largest open-air shopping center in the world, hosts hundreds of more designer-brand, fast-fashion, and local stores as well as many incredible restaurants within its cafeteria. For those who want more outdoor activities, Ala Moana Beach Park is located directly across Ala Moana Boulevard from the Ala Moana Center, and it hosts a large grassy park area, a beach, plenty of public parking, an L&L Hawaiian Barbecue, tennis courts, and a beach volleyball court.
