Overview

Waikiki Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condominium, Studio Apartment

Aloha E Komo Mai! Hello and Welcome to the Waikiki Shore, the only beachfront condominium on Waikiki Beach. Recently remodeled Studio 1404 is the highest and closest to the beach of all the building studio units. Enjoy amazing Diamond Head and Ocean views from inside the apartment and out on the balcony, as well as incredible beach, city and mountain views.

See our listing for 1315 if 1404 is booked. 1315 was just remodeled and it is spectacular!

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 #2 beach (again!) in America for 2013, 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 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 14th floor lanai serves as private box seats to the Pacific Ocean, breathtaking sunsets, and Friday Night Fireworks.

About Steve Geilfuss

We (Steve & Chris) 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.

Steve Geilfuss purchased this condo in 2012

Why Steve Geilfuss chose Waikiki

Waikiki Shore is a special building, unique in its location, size, and amenities; it's a perfect balance of solitude, beach and activity.

What makes this condo unique

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.

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
Dear Steve and chris,
Thank you for our wonderful stay in your place. It nearly felt like being home but with a much grander view. WOW! What a view. So close to everything and quiet. The verandah was great to sit and watch the sun going down. Thank you, M & K

Lovely Accommodations and More

  • 5 of 5
Having previously booked several units in the Waikiki Shore through Outrigger and Castle, we much preferred 1404 to the other studio units in the building for the views, the attractive decor, and the very complete array of amenities, including DVDs, beach equipment, and even plastic wrap and food storage bags. Most appreciated was the efficient, trusting, and unobtrusive owner, who clearly lives the spirit of aloha. We will be back.

GREAT SPOT GREAT OWNER TO DEAL WITH

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful view, great place with everything you need. Bought groceries to cook breakfast and eat on the balcony in the morning. What a great way to start the day. Washer , dryer, stove, fridge, balcony with great view, comfortable bed. What else could you want? How about a great owner to deal with. I was supposed to arrive about 1:30 in the afternoon, but after a 12 hour delay on my Hawaiian Airlines flight I arrived at 1:30am.
Steve was great about being there and letting me in, and also meeting next morning to give me parking pass.
He was so understanding, I was so glad I rented from him. I took so much of his time with constant updates of arrival time as Hawaiian kept on delaying my flight.
By the way if you are going to rent car make sure to ask him for $14 parking pass. So much easier to park across street in lot than in VERY tight spaces at the condo (which cost $25 a day)
You can't go wrong renting this unit.

1404 Spectacular Spot

  • 5 of 5
Ourvstay at 1404 was lovely, the view is spectacular, both from the front door and of course from the balcony/lanai area. The tall table and chairs are great as you can see over the railing, and for a short person this is wonderful!
The apartment is well set out and well appointed , plenty of glasses, cups, plates etc for two people. The sound system was great and we loved the station it was set on, NO talk just great music ! Free wi fi was great and much appreciated.
Didn't use the SUP as it was too big for me to get in and out ,but I'm sure others will make great use of this.
The provision of beach chairs and beach towels was a real bonus, used these a lot !
All in all there is not a bad thing you could say about Steve and Chris' apartment at 1404 was a home from home.

Wonderful studio; beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 3 short nights in this lovely studio. We especially loved laying in bed watching the ocean. The lanai is the perfect location to look over Honolulu to the mountains, down on to Ft. DeRussy park, or out to sea. It was like having our own private seating for the Friday night fireworks from the Hilton.
The decor is not only very eye pleasing, but interesting as well. (You'll have to come stay to understand.) Although the unit is small, the amenities are very well thought out. It's obvious the owners have actually stayed there and thought of many conveniences we really appreciated. (The beach towels, chairs, umbrella, and ice chest are a very nice touch.)
Thank you Steve & Chris for allowing us to enjoy your little piece of heaven on Waikiki!

Best room in Waikiki!

  • 5 of 5
Totally love this place! It is clean and has the best location in Waikiki. It is nicely decorated and well equipped for a super comfortable stay...think I might have even spend a bit too much time in the room instead of on the beach!!
Wonder if the owl on the balcony is the scares the pigeons away but I had a laugh when I saw it ;-D
I especially love the views. We see the sunrise from the Diamond Head side front door and sunset from the balcony and on Friday evening, the magnificent fireworks!
Thank you Chris and Steve, hope to be back soon.
