Waikiki Beach Tower
Waikiki Beach Tower offers a prime location on famed Kalakaua Avenue, right across the street from and directly overlooking the beach. Recessed back from sidewalk traffic and with a discreet lobby, it’s also one of Waikiki’s best-kept secrets.
Located toward the eastern end of Waikiki, Waikiki Beach Tower is near everything the neighborhood has to offer. Literally hundreds of shops and restaurants, from local bikini boutiques to Gucci, Coach and Fendi, are all within a few blocks, plus cafés and restaurants to fit every budget. Several blocks to the east is the 200-acre Kapiolani Park, home of the Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium, a concert amphitheater and countless weekend festivals and sporting events. It’s also a favorite area for jogging, dog walking and bird watching. And of course, all of Waikiki Beach and glistening Kuhio Beach are at your front door.
As both a condominium and hotel, which is operated by Aston Hotels & Resorts, Waikiki Beach Tower has a mix of owner residents and short-term vacationers on the property at any given time. The hotel aspect of the building is a great advantage to absentee owners, who can submit their units into the property’s hotel rental program so that units bring in income when not in use.
Built in 1984, the 39-story Beach Tower is sleek outside and graciously spacious on the inside. It includes 140 leasehold and fee-simple two-bedroom units with square footages ranging from 1,196 to 1,310. These are fully equipped apartments with all the amenities and comforts of home, including gourmet kitchens, washer/dryers and central air conditioning. They also all face the ocean and feature a gigantic balconies perfect for all-day lounging. With no buildings directly across on the beach side of the street, the views are unobstructed.
The Beach Tower offers residents a broad sundeck with a swimming pool and hot tub, plus a recreation nook with a billiard table. It’s also very secure, with private guards, a locked lobby and an entercom security system. Small pets are allowed.
