About the Property

Condominium, Studio Apartment

Aloha E Komo Mai! Hello and Welcome to the Waikiki Shore, the only beachfront condominium on Waikiki Beach. We purchased Studio 1315 in April 2013 and completely remodeled it prior to making it available for guests.

If this apartment is booked, see our Studio 1404 (VRBO/409315) listing for availability. The two apartments are very similar. You’ll step inside and appreciate the high location with amazing ocean, beach, city and mountain views.

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 #1 beach in America for 2014, 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, or rent our Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) 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 13th floor lanai serves as private box seats to the Pacific Ocean, breathtaking sunsets, and Friday night fireworks.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We 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, Honolulu, HI, USA:
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 Apartment:
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.
