Waikiki Shore condo description

Aloha E Komo Mai! Hello and Welcome to the Waikiki Shore, the only beachfront condominium on Waikiki Beach. Recently remodeled Studio 1404 is the highest and closest to the beach of all the building studio units. Enjoy amazing Diamond Head and Ocean views from inside the apartment and out on the balcony, as well as incredible beach, city and mountain views.

See our listing for 1315 if 1404 is booked. 1315 was just remodeled and it is spectacular!

Waikiki Beach is one of the greatest beaches in the world, and though not widely known, it is made up of many smaller, named beaches. One of them, Duke Kahanamoku Beach, which is seen in its entirety from the balcony, has been named as the #2 beach (again!) in America for 2013, according to Dr. Stephen Leatherman's (aka 'Dr. Beach') annual list. Duke Kahanamoku Beach, which fronts the Hilton Hawaiian Village and reaches out to the Waikiki Shore, made this year's list for the fourth consecutive year.

Descend the Waikiki Shore stairs to the beach and in thirty paces, you have reached the Pacific Ocean. Store your surfboard on site and paddle directly out to 'Threes' surf break, made famous in the movie 'Endless Summer.' Swim, snorkel, relax. Fort DeRussy Park and the military hotel, Hale Koa, are right next door. First class shopping, dining, and sightseeing are around the corner.

Your 14th floor lanai serves as private box seats to the Pacific Ocean, breathtaking sunsets, and Friday Night Fireworks.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We (Steve & Chris) came to Oahu for a visit in 1988 and couldn't imagine raising a family anywhere else. When you live in Paradise 365 days a year, where do you go to get away? Waikiki.

                  Why the Owner Chose Waikiki Shore:
                  Waikiki Shore is a special building, unique in its location, size, and amenities; it's a perfect balance of solitude, beach and activity.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We can go from an ocean paddle to a Michelin starred restaurant in minutes. Soft jazz in a first-class lounge and a wild-and-crazy sports bar are both around the corner. Friday night fireworks cap off pau hana and mark the start of the weekend for locals and tourists alike. Waikiki is a multi-cultural mix of people, food, and opportunities.
