Set on a hidden beach below Diamond Head, Kainalu offers peace and privacy in one of Hawaii’s most prestigious enclaves: the Gold Coast, surrounded by an expansive park filled with trees and birds. Kainalu is also only a 15-minute beachfront walk to the many shops, restaurants and attractions of central Waikiki.
The Gold Coast has been lodging fashionable visitors and Island residents for more than a century – first at stately waterfront homes and bungalow hotels, then within its petite collection of boutique hotels, elite condos and private clubs. The Kainalu co-op, built in 1958, enjoys an end-of-the-row Gold Coast setting among charming historic bungalows.
With only 8 floors and 59 units, Kainalu is truly exclusive. Its unique design allows for views from every angle; residents on the front of the building enjoy 180-degree ocean panoramas and even whale sightings in winter. Two exceptional surf spots are located just beyond the reef. Units range from studios at approximately 600 square feet with balconies to 2-bedroom/2-bath apartments at more than 1,300 square feet. Building amenities include an onsite resident manager, secured entry, parking, extra storage and private beachfront access.
Key attractions near the Kainalu condominium include:
