Honolulu condo description

The property is located at the Executive Centre in Honolulu's Downtown/ Financial District. The Executive Centre is a 41-story, mixed use complex (hotel, residential and commercial property) that is conveniently accessible to public transportation, freeway access, and within walking distance to State, City, and Federal buildings, financial institutions, hospitals (Queens, Straub, Kaiser, Kuakini), Hawaii Pacific University, University of Phoenix, University of Hawaii, and many of Honolulu's historic buildings and attractions in the Downtown area (Iolani Palace, Kamehameha Statue, Chinatown, Aloha Tower, Mission House Museum, Hawaii State Art Museum, State Capital). The unit overlooks Hotel Street and the reserved parking and unit are both located on the 8th floor. Parking and wi-fi are included in the daily rate.

The unit is spacious (525 SF), comfortable, and affordable. There is a queen-size bed and a full-size sofa bed, room for 2-3. Whether you are here for business, leisure, or for family functions, our mission is to meet your travel needs, to save you a little $ when you visit Honolulu, and to offer you an opportunity to stay in the Downtown/Financial/ Historic District -- the Heart of Honolulu.

Enjoy fresh fruits, vegetables, and local favorites at the Fort Street farmers market on Tuesdays and Fridays or visit the numerous eateries in the Chinatown/Downtown neighborhood that offer international flavors. The famous Murphy's Bar & Grill is two blocks away (featured on the Food Network Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives). Explore the neighborhood on foot to find eclectic boutiques, cafes, bars, restaurants, bargains and treasures, and hop on the bus or take a drive to nearby neighborhoods -- Ala Moana, Ward Centre, Waikiki, Kailua, Kaimuki, Kahala, North Shore -- anywhere you want to holoholo (get out and go places). Everything you need is within reach so pack your bags and enjoy a little Aloha. E Komo Mai (welcome in).

The property is 15-30 minutes from Waikiki (depending on the mode of transportation) and about 15 minutes away from Honolulu International Airport (depends on traffic and route). The location is -- central -- right in the Heart of Honolulu.

                      The unit is on the 8th floor, overlooking Hotel Street, the Pantheon Block, and the McCorriston Building. Public transportation is located on Hotel, King, Bishop, and Alakea Streets -- all within steps or a short walk from the Executive Centre. Longs Drugs (CVS), Walmart, 7-11, Umeke Market, Safeway, Ross, Fisher (office supplies), McDonalds, Jamba Juice, Starbucks, Beach Bum Coffee, Little Village Chinese Restaurant, and numerous local shops and restaurants are within walking distance (on the same block or less than 1/2 mile away).

                      Happenings around Downtown (and nearby neighborhoods), First Fridays, Family Sundays, Honolulu Night Market, Eat the Street, and more -- Keiki to Kupuna, there's something for everyone!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: Together with my family, we have stayed at Home Away/VRBO properties in SF, Seattle, Portland, and Boston and found this hotel-alternative a fun and interesting way to travel. As a family, we enjoy the local experience and select places to stay where we can experience living in a city versus visiting a city. I am a resident of Hawaii, where I have lived most of my life, and will be here to assist you should you need anything during your stay. My wife is also from Hawaii and is a resource as well. We love Hawaii, our island home.

                      Why the Owner Chose Honolulu:
                      The Executive Centre is the only mixed use property (hotel, residence, and commercial) in the Heart of Downtown's Financial and Historic District. Formerly used as an office, a residence, and now a VRBO - made available to share our wonderful island home. Parking is expensive and having a reserved parking space at no extra charge is a plus.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The property is convenient for travelers visiting Oahu for business, extended stays, folks in town for family reunions, weddings, and special events, and travelers that like to stay in less crowded and not so touristy places. The location is easy to get in and out of (easy access to freeways and main surface streets). If you have a car, the reserved stall is located on the same floor as the unit -- and that's a convenience factor that many of the other units are unable to offer. If you chose to get around by bus or taxi, these transportation modes are just few steps away. The unique benefit of this Executive Centre unit is that the daily rate is reasonable and includes a reserved parking space, wi-fi, is more spacious than a hotel room (525 SF with two rooms), reasonable cleaning (out) fees, and 24 hour security. There's a well-equipped kitchenette for light meals, gear for beach/park outings (mat, chairs, towels); for longer stays, laundry service is available (United Laundry) or convenient, coin-operated washers/dryers are located on the 3rd floor.
