About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The Waikiki Shore Apartments- the only condo homes located directly on Waikiki Beach! You'll soon discover why this is the best kept secret among savvy world travelers. The heavenly Waikiki Shore is perhaps the most unique condo rentals available in Waikiki. The only condo building located directly on Waikiki Beach! Once guests stay here, they never wish to stay anywhere else! Nestled among 8 neighboring world famous hotels you'll enjoy stepping out to surfing, swimming, catamaran cruising, snorkeling, sunning, strolling, people watching, and more!

From # 1314 - Waikiki Shore's only privately managed studio a highly preferred high floor you'll enjoy spectacular ocean views from both front door, living area and private lanai. This deluxe oceanview studio is ,comfortable, immaculate, and tastefully appointed in tropical style. Included is a full kitchen, all linens, and washer/dryer in unit, beach chairs and more. From your pristine lanai, relax and take in Pacific Ocean views stretching all the way to Ewa side of Oahu.

From your front door, you can see the Diamond Head side of Waikiki and watch whales (in-season), surfers, outrigger paddlers & catamarans. Fine dining is steps away.

The Waikiki Shore's beach location also has romantic sunsets and charming mauka and city nighttime lights. Watch the weekly Friday night fireworks extravaganza from your own private lanai. Shady palm trees grace the well manicured velvet green lawns of our military's R&R retreat: Ft. DeRussy. The park is open to the public and offers beach tables, handball courts, and volleyball. Show up for morning outdoor exercise classes.

About Jean Riley

I moved here from Dallas Texas with my 10 year old American Eskimo in 1999. Having never been to Hawaii, I took a real leap of faith. You'll have to ask me about starting out at the YMCA and 56 trips on the bus to quarantine...Hummm, maybe not?!

Why Jean Riley chose South Oahu

The first time I saw # 1314 it knocked me off my feet. It has a bird's eye view of velvet green DeRussy above the palm trees. It has georgous blue ocean views! Mauka and city nightlights; Diamond Head & ocean views from front walkway/door; My first question was literally: 'OK, where do I sign?'

The unexpected surprise is usually always: Receive joy vicariously from many very happy guests!

What makes this condo unique

Some of the unique benefits of staying at the Waikiki Shore Apartments besides being right on the beach- We are a small community that has it all- everything is just steps away. People get to know each another. Talk to Clarence downstairs about umbrella/board rentals. Say hello to his pal Rascal-our surfing dog and little building mascot! Rascal now even has his own line of boards. Try standup paddle. You can do it! It's all the rage now.

In the morning enjoy your coffee from your own private lanai overlooking paradise. This is a perfect time to hit the sidewalk for a stroll down to the Hilton Hawaiian Village to see the fish and flamingos. Take your camera!

Across the street is the new Trump Tower and Beach Walk Development - Waikiki 's new epic center. You'll find all kinds of shopping, entertainment, great restaurants.

Besides being the only condo on Waikiki Beach, perhaps our other most unique blessing is Fort DeRussy. Fort DeRussy Park is an amazingly beautiful 50 acres of greenbelt shelter amidst city concrete. We couldn't image Waikiki without it. The U.S. Army does a beautiful job maintaining the 50 acre oasis of lawns, flowers, native trees, recreation areas, and walkways. All of our lanais overlook this beautiful park along the shores of Waikiki- surely the best of all worlds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha, Richard & Kathy.

Thanks so much for staying in # 1314. We do have smaller properties here on the island- welcome to Hawaii where land is scarce, but we'll take quality over quantity! Average hotel rooms are 224 sq. feet and the place at the Waikiki shore is 400 sq. feet. I think it feels bigger to me, becasue I always leave the lanai wide open. And, the bathroom and entry hallway are very spacious by island standards. This building used to be a YWCA. The rooms were dorms and we have these extra high ceilings like they don't do anymore. I used to allow 3 guests, but you're right- perfect for 2 people. 4 people can confortably enjoy the lanai for sunset/fireworks/nightlights. While the ocean goes dark, you can still hear the surf, and all the city and mauka lights go on. Aloha, Richard & Kathy- come back soon- Hana hou!

A perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Thanks much, Jean, for the use of your beautifully redecorated condo. It is by far the nicest we have used here - no contest. Perhaps the best thing is how well-provisioned the unit is. Can't think of anything we needed that wasn't here.

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for one week with my daughter for spring break. It was perfect. Jean has everything you need from toiletries to a day at the beach. This is a wonderful location. Loved being on the 13th floor. It was very quiet and there are two elevators so not inconvenient. They are a little slower however, we were on vacation so not in a rush to be anywhere. Mahalo, Jean will definitely stay here on our next visit.

Up in the clouds

  • 4 of 5

Well Jean, we finally did it, I got to stay in your condo, after many tries. Have stayed in Waikiki Shore on numerous occasions, but never on the 13th floor and that sure gives one, a completely different outlook.( No pun intended) Where to start, the mornings and afternoons, sunrise and sunsets, is what Hawaii is all about,never 2 days the same. The condo. has all you need for a comfortable stay and Jean is always on the other end of the phone, if needed, an extremely obliging lady. A car is not needed, transport Is close by, cheap and frequent .I had 10 days and was just settling, then it was time to go...poor me.

What I suggest, don`t waste time, booking with Jean, as her calendar is always just about full, when you get your dates, book right away. A big Mahalo Jean for making my stay so enjoyable...much aloha to you and Ron. Leonie

Just spent two weeks in Jean's Condo for 2nd time and my wife and I really enjoyed again the casual living, closeness to the beach, shops and transport. Quality surf 5 minute paddle away a real bonus. We would recommend this to any couple looking for a relaxing holiday.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Jean's Condo for 10 days from 27th May 2016 and could not have asked for anything more.

The Location was just fabulous , as were the spectacular views from our lanai.

The Condo is very well provisioned right down to very comfortable beach chairs for our use.

This is the perfect place to stay for 2 people and we cannot wait to return. I cannot recommend Jean's Condo highly enough ! Thank you Jean !
