Elusive and exclusive with only 10 units in the entire building, Seabreeze is a hideaway within one of Honolulu’s most hidden-away neighborhoods. This rarely available residential condo is set directly on the waterfront along the “Gold Coast”—a petite and highly coveted enclave at the foot of Diamond Head, today surrounded by preservation land.
The Gold Coast is a world unto itself. In addition to its 17 high-value condominiums, the community includes the members-only Elks Club and Outrigger Canoe Club, two boutique hotels, two fashionable beaches and three upscale restaurants, all within a few minutes’ walk from Seabreeze. Framing them all is the 200-acre Kapiolani Park, with tennis courts, an aquarium, a zoo and a concert amphitheater. Central Waikiki is only a 10-minute walk along the beachfront.
This sunny landscape has a fascinating history as well. It was once dotted with at least seven Native Hawaiian temples, and was the site of at least one major battle. In the last century or so, the coast became a magnet for Honolulu’s wealthiest residents, who built vast beach homes here. Several cottage hotels also once stood here, and between their roster and the famous homes, this area has hosted more than its share of celebrities over the years. The condos now standing have also been home to an international set since they were built.
Built in 1959, the mid-rise Seabreeze is a fee-simple co-op that showcases the ultimate in privacy with only one unit per floor. Each is a two-bedroom, two-bath unit with 1,593 to 2,027 square feet of space, balconies and sweeping oceanfront views. Parking is included.
