About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms and 3 Baths

Introducing a beachfront vacation condo for extended family.

Discover the little known secret of one of the most prized stretches of Waikiki Beach. The only privately owned condominium in Waikiki where you can step right from the building onto the sand of world famous Waikiki beach.

If you're seeking Hawaii sunshine with the view to die for, and you'd want to experience true beachfront living, here's the place! Enjoy the experience of "Life is a beach!"

Unlike other condos, our condo is not 'steps away' from the beach, it is located directly on the beach! There are over 300 buildings in Waikiki and this is the only condo on the beach!

Breathtaking Views, World Class Cuisines, Incredible Shopping, Ocean Activities, All Within Footsteps from Your Door. A Great Choice for First-Class Families.

Just a little bit of heaven and earth. This is the dream family vacation you've been longing for.

Our goal is to see your jaw drop!

To hear you say: Pinch me now, is this real?

Or from one of our many unforgettable guest, when our 85 year old Rebecca calls us:

'You know what! I thought I'd just died and wake up in heaven!'

We want to make it pretty hard to start packing when your stay is over. We spared no expense finishing and furnishing the property. Only when the best will do. If you want to be pampered and spoiled, this villa comes equipped for a family in need of a serious unwinding vacation.

Design to treat your mind, body and soul. Come and sleep your mornings away, wake up to feel it right at home. The breathtaking view of the ocean from every single window and door is simply amazing!

Floor-to-ceiling infinity doors open from the beach house lead out to two covered patio/lanais with 240 degree views of waterfront, Waikiki city lights, mountains, coastline, dazzling vibrant sunset, acres of palm trees below, and the spectacular view of the signature Diamond Head mountain.

As our guest you're welcome to enjoy owner's privileges at the adjacent Outrigger Reef Hotel. These include multiple beachfront restaurants, variety of shops, resort style sea water pool, whirlpool spas, hot tubs, fitness center, beach services, business center, tour desk, daily car rental, Concierge service and Serenity Spa. Nightly Hawaiian entertainment with live music in Aloha Lobby Lounge.

Not like renting from typical individual owned condo, we have arranged our condos to be professionally staffed by Outrigger with 24-hour desk and bellman services at nearby Outrigger Regency Hotel.

The staff will take care of getting your luggage to the condo. Speaking of parking you will love the cool underground parking featuring an elevator that takes you within a few steps of the condo. Inquire for current parking fee.

Separate master bedroom with king-sized bed, private balcony, living room with queen-sized sofa bed, dining table in an outdoor covered lanai, entertainment center with TVs, hair-dryer, wireless internet.

The kitchen was fit for a chef with fully equipped appliances. This is fabulous when you might need to whip up a gourmet meal. However, I confess that most evenings you can just take a leisure stroll to one of many surrounding restaurants from authentic Hawaiian to 5 stars and everything in between. Dining is so close and convenient that you don't even need a car.

Just open all the sliding doors to enjoy the Waikiki salt-water breezes and soak up the refreshing air. Each morning enjoy our freshly brewed coffee out on the beachfront lanai, while making plans for the days.

There are so many local activities within a short drive or better yet just walk down to the adjacent Outrigger Reef Hotel front lobby and bus tour would pick up right there.

Feel the 'WOW' factor of beachfront bliss, that everyone can have the mind-blowing experience of taking dinner on outside lanai as they watch the dazzling sunset, ever changing turquoise water, watch Hilton Village Fireworks (every Fridays), dazzling Honolulu city lights. Then to top it off after dinner, walk to the nightlife of Waikiki.

Learn how to surf on the very beach where the sport was born. Enjoy a submarine dive, catamaran sail, Outrigger canoe ride or snorkel among tropical fish and turtles. Virtually every water sports from water bike, skydiving, helicopter tour, to swimming with the dolphins are available at the beach shop up front.

Relax and watch the sun slip into the Pacific Ocean from your bedroom lanai. Step out to your wrap-around lanai, enjoy sweeping panoramic views of endless beach while watching your little ones building sand castles and playing in the water down below.

Or come down to the beach, join the family where Papa enjoyed burying the kids and mama in the sand. After wearing yourselves out, wash off in the shower and headed back to the pool and BBQ'd some lunch.

Take a leisurely stroll down below at Fort De Russy park and Museum, visit the displays, the museum and the Gallery of Heroes. Just steps from public BBQ grills, kid's playground, tennis court, beach volley ball, racket ball court, walking trails with exercise stations along the way.

From this central location you can explore the rest of Oahu. Three public bus lines in front, a glorious sandy beachfront steps from world-class fine dining, shopping and Waikiki beachfront nightlife.

Hawaii's famous Ala Moana Shopping Center is 2 miles away. 9 miles from Honolulu Airport. Snorkel at Hanauma Bay 4 miles. Multiple Golf courses to choose from.

Between the beach and the 50 acre park you'll almost forget you're in the heart of Waikiki.

You'll discover the perfect setting to reaffirm your love for one another.

Rediscover the old adage: Family that plays together, stay together! Make this family vacation unforgettable!

If you were ever watching TV and saw the home that made you think "wow, it has everything" it's might has been this home. Amazing location, perfect views, and an inside to match, it can't get any better. You'll have trouble finding a beachfront condo in Waikiki like this!

Then when you get home, show your friends how you've been sun-kissed. And we hope you won't forget to ask them to guess where the end of the rainbow is...

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole sang it best in his song 'Over the Rainbow'

"Somewhere over the rainbow, Way up high

And the dreams that you dreamed of, Once in a lullaby....

Somewhere over the rainbow, Blue birds fly

And the dreams that you dreamed of, Dreams really do come true"...

Amazing views, Amazing location, Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 (ages 14, 18, 18, 19 + us 2 adults) traveled to Hawaii again this year. Last year, west Maui at another excellent VRBO unit. This year, Waikiki beach, which my wife and I last visited 18 years ago. Waikiki Beach and Honolulu are the same beautiful place. Last time we stayed at the Halekulani. This time, we stayed at Tommy Tran's "Cloud Nine" condo. A great choice. The unit is very clean and spacious. With 3 BRs and 3 full sized bath rooms, we had plenty of room and never felt cramped. The furniture nicely complimented the unit and the views. 2 BRs with 4 individual beds were perfect for our 4 kids. Lots of privacy. The master BR with king bed was very comfortable. AC in the rooms was nice to have, although we rarely used it, keeping the sliding doors open most of the time. The kitchen is fully stocked and we only needed to buy food. The staff were very accommodating. For example, when we had trouble with a ceiling fan, we called the staff phone number and they promptly fixed it. Mr. Tran, too, is a very accommodating host, by checking in with us by phone. Parking in the garage under the building was very easy and not crowded, although I don't think a car is necessary as the location is very convenient. 2 sets of elevators made moving around the building easy. The location is ideal, being on a wide part of Waikiki Beach with private beach access and shower. Our diving tours picked us up at the Outrigger Reef in front of the Starbucks. The local ABC Store across, from the Halekulani, was a 5 minute walk and is where we bought groceries and take out sushi (in addition to buying groceries at Foodland, which is a drive or Uber away). The ABC store had rotisserie chicken and many other tasty items. Turns out that we liked the unit so much we took most of our meals there. The views were better than any restaurant on the beach! We enjoyed the walks on the Waikiki beach walk and swimming at the connecting Outrigger Reef's pool--their pool attendants deliver drinks and food poolside. Mr. Tran's unit at the Waikiki Shore is in a super-convenient location! Next time we are in Honolulu, we'll book Mr. Tran's unit again.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is incredible!

Beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable, the views are the most amazing you will ever see in Honolulu. The panorama of the pacific along Waikiki Beach stretches from Diamond Head to the far reaches of coastline along the bay to the twinkling lights of the city! Soothing oceans breezes and breathtaking sunsets will 'wow' you and your guests.

Tommy Tran is a most gracious host and has provided a concierge to meet your needs during your stay. Access to the amenities at the Outrigger Reef next door truly rounded out our vacation experience. Please note not all units in this building have this option, you must ask if they do. There is also a parking garage below for those island excursions, but taxis and Uber's are easiest to get around town.

The well equipped kitchen is an entertainers dream with the island cooktop to show off your culinary skills while guests keep you company. ( definitely my favorite way to cook! ) This feature was actually one of the reasons I chose this home. Dining on the lanai will have you living a lifestyle most can only dream of. So spacious with very comfortable furnishings. A tip for the lady of the house.. try sending everyone to the beach one day and put the lounge chair from the side deck on the front.. all you will need is a towel, head phones and a lot of coconut's heavenly. Such a difference compared to the small lanais the hotels provide including ocean front rooms. I know, I have stayed in most of them here.

The master bedroom has one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in (and I have a cranky back) elegant furnishings ample closet space and a private bathroom make this room the perfect spot to watch the moon rise ( or set lol) over the ocean. We were there during a super moon and it was stunning!

The bedroom by the front lanai has 2 futons available for sleeping.. one of my girls grabbed it right away realizing the room can be open on all 3 sides and is almost literally over the ocean. We affectionally named it 'The Yacht Room'.

All with in walking distance are shops restaurants and more fabulous beaches. Lewers Street Waikiki Beach Walk has great shopping and restaurants. You can walk the beach towards diamond head to get to seaside restaurants, bars, beach activities and don't forget a sail on the Kepoikai ll (sunset is my favorite). This area is also great for swimming. Sounds of the ocean surround you as you live a life of luxury. I'll be back.

Wonderful property, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip in Waikiki while staying at this gorgeous condominium. This is literally a penthouse that overlooks the bay/ ocean. The location is ideal, and the unit is extremely well stocked, clean, and it was perfect for my family and I. The views really are literally to die for. Tommy is a wonderful owner and he is very easy to deal with. I can’t wait to come back again next year.

Hands down, the best place to stay on Waikiki Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at the Waikiki Shores multiple times, but it had been several years since our last stay. We just recently returned from a 10 night stay (8/18-8/28/17) in unit 900 (and 1402). The "00" units, above the 5th floor are the best. They literally over look the ocean with unobstructed views of Diamond Head to the Hilton Village. This building was built in 1960, most units have been updated since then, but many are in need of yet another update. Tommy and Tracy's unit 900 has had a recent MAJOR update that is awesome. They even added a 3rd small bathroom. New furniture, appliances, cabinets, kitchen island, flooring, etc is all very nice. The kitchen is complete with everything you will need and more. We hosted a dinner party with 45 guests, correct 45. The layout of the main living area and patios comfortably accommodated our guests that were blown away with our accommodations and view. It's too bad our gathering wasn't on Friday night when the firework display is held near the Hilton Village, because we had perfect seats for it.

Pack light, because there is a good washer and dryer in this unit, so laundry is a breeze. There are plenty of towels. We had 6 people in the room and utilized 5 of the beds. While there were clean mattress pad covers in the closet for the 2 full size convertible beds (located in sun room), I had to call house keeping for the bedding. No worries though, they are quick to respond to your requests. The beds were comfortable, no complaints there. The 2 convertible beds are extremely firm, but still no complaints.

We rented a full size SUV (Ford Expedition XL), the parking garage in the basement, has an assigned dedicated space for 900. Having the parking is hugely convenient and no added expense.

Both Tommy and Tracy have been wonderful to deal with since day one. One can only be so lucky to have such nice accommodations with such a great location. We are already planning a return visit next year and will definately be a repeat customer if theirs.
