Island Colony condo description

Compliment your vacation with this Hawaiian Head Turner !

Island Colony 2206 is a Studio, 1 bathroom with full kitchen, 309 sf Interior, 104 sf lanai, 413 sf total living area. It sleeps 1 to 4 guests. It was remodeled in 2014. It's ideally located in the Heart of Waikiki on the 22nd floor. It has stunning views day and night. The building is one of Waikiki's tallest skyscrapers and features resort-like amenities.

Throughout the unit you'll find smooth ceilings, 18 inch limestone travertine flooring, air conditioning and Internet Wifi.

For the culinary arts, the kitchen features a smooth 4 burner cook top, 1.7 cu ft stainless microwave convection oven range hood, 10 cu ft refrigerator freezer, 92 cu ft built-in hardwood cabinetry, under cabinet lighting, sink, disposal, cookware and tableware. The hardwood drop leaf dining table with 4 chairs works famously on the Lanai. Just bring your favorite herbs and spices.

For sumptuous comfort, the freshly minted living room features a Full Size Bed, Headboard, Italian Leather Sofa Sleeper Couch, Study Desk, Mood Lighting, Coffee Table, 40 inch HD (HDMI) Flat Screen Cable TV, Black Out Drapes, Sheer Curtains, 12000 BTU Air Conditioner, Wardrobes, Suitcase Rack, Clothes Closets, Framed Mirrors, Framed Artworks, Sprinklers and Smoke Detector.

The Living room opens to the Lanai through wall to wall glass and double sliding doors. Just bring your suitcase.

The outsized Lanai is polished off with high-see-through glass railing and wicker furniture. At 220 ft above the water the views are breath taking: sunset, mountain, fireworks, canal and partial ocean view. Just bring your favorite bottle of wine.

Island Colony is a Condotel with 745 units. It's one of ten tallest buildings in Waikiki and taller than Trump Tower. Built to maximum height, 350 ft in 1979, it was superbly constructed by serial award winning Haseko. That's as high as the combined height of Luana, Palms and Aloha Surf. The building association completed a $6.5 million renewal in 2014. This temple of tranquility has all the amenties, security and services you'd expect from a skyscraper. It features many amenities exceeding Three Star Hotel Rating: Recreation Deck, Swimming Pool, Jet Spa, Cabanas, Sauna, Barbecues, Picnic Tables, Fitness Room, Shower, Ice Machines, Convenience Store, Laundromat, Public Parking Garage, Open Air Lobby, 2 Porte-cochères, Cafe, ATM, Concierge services, free Wifi in lobby, 24 hr security guards, security cameras, electronic key fobs plus auto & scooter & bicycle rentals. Just bring your binoculars.

Pamper yourself with a 6 minute walk to Waikiki Beach. It's only a 3 minute walk to the International Market Place (and future home of Sak's). That's where 1,224 people pass every 15 minutes during peak evening hours -- the highest concentration of pedestrian traffic in Waikiki, according to a study completed by the University of Hawaii. King William Kana'ina Lunalilo (1835- 1874) the first elected king in Hawaiian history had a summer residence here.

Located in the Heart of Waikiki you've got easy access to entertainment, dining, Hawaiian Heritage, Asian culture and shopping at world-class Royal Hawaiian Center, Waikiki Beachwalk and Luxury Row . The condo is 4 minutes to the Royal Hawaiian Center, 6 minutes to Waikiki Beachwalk , 8 minutes to Ft De Russy park, 8 minutes to Luxury Row, 16 minutes to the Honolulu Zoo, 16 minutes to Kapiolani Park and 24 minutes to the Waikiki Aquarium. Ala Moana Center is a 19 minute bus ride or 25 minute walk, the most popular attraction in the State, the largest open air shopping mall in the world and the premiere fashion center of the Pacific. For those who want a world-class makeover, Waikiki and Ala Moana offer access to 440 premium stores and restaurants.

A vehicle can be fun to drive but not necessary to access the popular attractions. You can explore Waikiki on foot, take bus tours to Pearl Harbor, Polynesian Cultural Center, Hanauma Bay, Dole Pinapple Plantation, etc. Or you can ride the City Bus to virtually any destination on Oahu. The City Bus and Waikiki Trolley stop within a few steps of the building. The Supershuttle stops right in front of the building. This condo is ideally located to get the most vacation for your money. Just bring your camera and your journal.

Without leaving the building, you can soak up the sun on chaise lounges, take a dip in the rooftop swimming pool, chill out under the cabanas, put on a barbecue party on the recreation deck, work out in the fitness room, get a muscle relaxing treatment in the jet spa or sauna, dine at Jagger's Cafe, purchase some necessities in the convenience store, rent a vehicle or have takeout food delivered. Just call your friends.

Elevate your vacation to stellar heights. Reserve it today!
