Pacific Monarch, Waikiki HI Homes & Real Estate
Built in 1980, Pacific Monarch is a 32-floor condotel housing 121 studio and 1-bedroom units. This condotel is located in an excellent spot in downtown Waikiki, situated less than a 3-minute walk away from the mega-popular Waikiki Beach and Kalakaua Avenue. This location plus its abundance of on-site amenities such as a pool, game room, BBQ areas, and more make Pacific Monarch a great choice for those who want a vacationing experience that mixes fun outdoor Waikiki culture with relaxing and convenient in-building activities.
Pacific Monarch is also one of the few buildings on O'ahu that allows legal short-term vacation rentals.

As previously mentioned, Pacific Monarch provides a great opportunity for visitors to engage in downtown Waikiki nightlife and culture, with surrounding restaurants like Musubi Cafe Iyasume, Hy's Steak House, Maguro Spot, Me Bar-B-Que, and Blue Ocean Seafood & Steak, all within 100 feet of the building. Likewise, sitting one block away on the corner of Uluniu Avenue and Koa Avenue is an ABC Store, which provides fun tourist gifts and trinkets as well as vacation staples like sunscreen, water and snacks, and other daily necessities.
One of the most notable aspects of Pacific Monarch's location is its proximity to Waikiki Beach, which is less than a 3-minute walk away from the residence. Arguably the most popular and well-known beach in Hawai'i, Waikiki Beach is an immensely popular spot for surfing, swimming, sunbathing, spending time with friends and family, eating, and more. There are shaded cabanas for those who need a break from the intense Hawaiian sun, and there are vendors stationed around the street selling various snacks and drinks. Not to mention, the entirety of Kalakaua Avenue along Waikiki Beach is stationed with restaurants, cafés, and stores, which means visitors can easily take a break from the beach and grab something to eat or drink.
Kalakaua Avenue is also known for its wide array of shopping spots, as it is the main shopping strip in Waikiki. Kalakaua Avenue hosts a variety of designer stores, fast-fashion stores, and more, making it one of the most consistently crowded areas in Waikiki.
For those who are not interested in the extremely crowded daily nature of this street and general area, other outdoor activities are found Southeast of the main Waikiki area. These include the Honolulu Zoo, Kapi'olani Regional Park, and the Diamond Head Crater Hike, which are a 3-, 6-, and 12-minute drive away from Pacific Monarch respectively.
