About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 4)

The the popular SKY apartment has been remodeled, repainted and refurbished by the new owner in May 2014 and has a whole new luxurious style. The proud owner has spared no expense to make it a very special place to be.

Of course the incredible ocean view from the 33rd floor has not changed and gets a lot of attention.

Besides a comfortable king bed it now also has a designer queen sofa sleeper , a real dining table with 4 chairs , flat screen TV (which can be watched from either room) . The addition of Shade blinds has given the living room an amazing contemporary look and now gives the apartment a soothing light even in sunny afternoons. Even closed you can see the beautiful blue ocean shine through. One of the very special features about this apartment is that it has lots of light and views from 3 windows. The lanai doors and the bedroom windows face the ocean . A 3rd window in the bedroom faces West. Only certain units have this added window and it makes a big difference. The 02 units of tower 2 have a particular popular location because it is an end unit and has the open view of Ohua street towards the beach.

A brand new quiet AC was installed, or keep your door open and let the Trade winds cool you naturally. The lanai is a perfect spot to take your breakfast or Happy hour drink and watch surfers and boats. In November the Lanai furniture was also upgraded , 2 new comfortable chairs and cocktail table .

Even the new color palette , a lagoon blue, rain forest green and sand , is a happy new change .

and last not least the totally renovated light and modern bathroom with a beautiful walk in shower and more spacious vanity area was just completed in October 2015.

Children are welcome , 4 guest maximum

Parking is free (a big savings in Waikiki), coin operated washer dryers on every floor.

Wifi is also provided at no charge as well as local phone calls.

The kitchen has been loaded with all new and pretty dishes and good cookware. counter top appliencesa are a Cuisinart, a blender, toaster, coffee maker and french press. Plenty of toys to enjoy some home cooking. There are many farmers markets in the area, the best one on Saturday at the KCC college behind Diamond Head

The Cafe in the lobby has bank machine and also a coin operated phone . Bring your cell phone to make calls from the room.

If you like to watch movies bring your Netflix sign in code. The TV is programmed to download movies from your account.

This is a corner unit on a high floor with wonderful views. It is quiet and clean. The building is close to beaches, the aquarium and lots of restaurants and shops. The management is extremely responsive and friendly. Beach mats, towels, and chairs are provided. What else does anyone need?

Gorgeous Ocean Views and a Short Walk to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

Our usual condo wasn't available for this last minute babymoon, but we were lucky to find this condo on the 33rd Floor. It was clean and welcoming. Stephanie the housekeeper was finishing up with the room when we arrived. She was very nice and gave us tips on where to eat and go and even came back with some coins for the laundry and some treats to enjoy on our first night stay. Brigitte was very easy to correspond with and everything was clear with no hiccups. The condo has a small cooler, a boogie board and 2 beach chairs to use -- very convenient if you plan on staying at the beach for a long time. There's plenty of extra towels and beach towels, too. We added to the collection and left the beach umbrella we bought for the next renters.

The 6th floor recreation seems updated from when we were there last. Hubby was able to enjoy the hot tub while the kiddies and I hung out at the playground. Lots of families BBQ-ing in the afternoon/early evening so get there early if you want to secure a spot.

One recommendation is to maybe upgrade the lighting in the condo. Even with all the lights on at the same time in the evening it still was kind of dim. Other than that, everything else was perfect for us on this trip. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I have had a couple of complaints that the lighting was too bright! I will try to play with the wattage of the light bulbs to get a happy medium!

Beautiful condo, amazing view, five minutes from the beach!

Once you step inside you feel like a home and are welcomed here. Since we arrived at night we did not have a chance to see the beautiful view of the ocean out from 33 floor. But we enjoyed it at morning:)). It had an absolutely stunning view of the ocean from both rooms. Our condo was beautifully decorated, clean, and well equipped with everything we could need. The kitchen was well stocked with all cooking essentials. The fridge was big enough to fit all the food we had.

Free wifi (fast + reliable) was also included with our room.

The recreation deck on the 6th floor was lovely, although we preferred to spend our time at the beach only a five minute walk down the road.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for moderately affordable accommodations, especially if you want a kitchen.

Our special thanks to Brigitte who was very caring of us all over from booking till last day of our stay!

Waikiki home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in this unit before and this time we really appreciated the remodel by the current owner. It is spacious and clean, and the building is quiet. The location is perfect -- near the beach and an easy walk into Waikiki shops. It's an easy drive to the many fun restaurants in Kaimuki. We recommend this unit to other friends and plan on going back next year.

Fantastic Honeymoon Condo

  • 5 of 5

This Condo was absolutely amazing, perfect location close to the tour buses/beach and our favourite Tikis bar and grill. We stayed here for 2 weeks on our honeymoon and the place was as advertised, ocean/Diamond Head view was spectacular, everything was clean/comfortable with beach chairs for that afternoon at the beach! We loved the kitchen as it had everything you would need to make yourself right at home and was perfect for those nights where you just want to stay in with a home cooked meal (safeway was a few bus stops down the road) I would highly recommend this place to everyone visiting Hawaii and it will certainly be our anniversary condo!! thank you for making our honeymoon so special. sending our love from Brisbane Australia xxxx
