Perched on the oceanfront along the tip of iconic Diamond Head Crater and Kapiolani Park, Honolulu’s Gold Coast is the height of urban Island-style luxury. This collection of upscale condos is only a 10-minute walk from Waikiki, yet a world away. 2987 Kalakaua is one of its most preferred properties.
2987 Kalakaua is perfectly positioned midway along this petite stretch—across the street from the quiet end of the park, and only a minute or two walk from the members-only Elks Club, the exclusive Outrigger Canoe Club, two boutique hotels, two fashionable beaches and three top-end restaurants. Two prized surf spots are located just offshore from the property. The 200-acre park itself is full of activity, with two sets of tennis courts, an aquarium, a zoo, a concert amphitheater, and frequent cultural and sporting events.
This sunny landscape has long been favored by Native Hawaiians as well as Westerners, with development of the park and coastline beginning in the late 1800s. After the construction of its Gold Coast condos in the 1950s and 1960s, the area was designated preservation land.
Built in 1953, 2987 Kalakaua is a mid-rise condominium of seven stories, featuring 41 fee-simple units with balconies. Front apartments enjoy full panoramic ocean views; side units offer partial ocean views, while those on the park-side of the building look across lush foliage onto Diamond Head. Unit square footage ranges from 460 to 1,075.
2987 Kalakaua offers that dreamed-of relaxed beachfront lifestyle in one of Hawaii’s most sought-after settings.
