Overview

About the property

2 private bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, fully equipped kitchen - Right on the Ocean

The "best of the best" being accessible to Waikiki, but living in the highly desired "Gold Coast" residential neighborhood of Diamond Head. Compare this nightly rate to two mediocre, non-view hotel rooms in Waikiki - this is the best value on Oahu! In Hawaiian, Nui Kai means 'big sea', and that's what you get with the views of the ocean from nearly every room of this 1,000 plus square foot luxury two bedroom condo, furnished in Polynesian, Island style decor. The unique feature being the 'outdoor room', this large lanai offers a large sectional, tiki bar and small dining table. All of this overlooking a sweeping view of the ocean and reef below. Large living room/dining room with island style furniture, cable television and DVD/CD. A fully appointed kitchen with stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. The master bedroom features '40's "Hawaiiana Décor" with king-sized bed, and cable television, and desk. The second bedroom features a Hawaiian theme with queen bed, and desk. The Diamond Head view is to the east and to the northeast is a gorgeous city scape with beautiful Kapiolani Park in the foreground and the beautiful skyline of Waikiki, Honolulu and the Ko'olau Mountains in the background. The building features a large oceanfront lawn with chaises for sunning, and dining tables for an ocean-side meal. Slightly to the south of the lawn is a sea ladder that descends directly into a swimming area in the sparkling Hawaiian waters of the Pacific Ocean. Slightly to the north of the lawn is a small sand beach with access to the reef. Complete your Oahu adventure with the convenience of a parking space for your rental car in the basement of the building for only 15 dollars per day. Beach Towels, Beach Chairs and Beach Umbrella are provided to all of our guests at no charge.

About Meggin

Our love of Hawaii began 20 years ago. After years of coming to the islands we decided to buy a studio so we would have a place to be. One thing lead to another (mainly, we found a building on the ocean that we loved!)...and we ended owning several vacation rentals in our building on Waikiki's Gold Coast. We stay in our units 3-4 times a year and are constantly maintaining the decor, updating amenities, painting, and keeping them in the best condition possible for your stay!

Meggin purchased this condo in 2004

Why Meggin chose Honolulu

The reason we purchased our condos in this building had to do with location. It is perfectly situated at the edge of Waikiki in Kapiolani Park. Located on Waikiki's famous Gold Coast, the condo building sits on the water with ocean on one side and park on the other. We like the location because although Waikiki and all the hustle bustle are just a 10-15 minute walk from the condo (along the park and the ocean), we are just far enough away for it to feel less hectic, more peaceful and MUCH quieter. The views of the ocean, city skyline, moutains, park and Diamond Head Crater from the apartment have to be seen to be believed!!

What makes this condo unique

Views, Views, Views! Ocean Access steps from the building's lobby level......and the private Lanai in the sky, which is an outdoor Living Room, Dining Room and Bar all in one!!

Great location, great ocean view

  • 4 of 5

Close enough to Waikiki for an easy 15 min walk, but far enough away to avoid the tourist mayhem there. Very close to Elks Lodge and Outrigger Canoe Club. The decor is a bit of a throwback in time, but charming, interesting and completely functional. Appliances and plumbing all worked flawlessly and the cross breeze was refreshing. Everything you need, other than food/drink is here, completely turnkey (actually key code). We didn't even use the A/C after the first night because it was quieter and cool enough with windows open. Thank you to the hosts for the beach chairs and towels, although the beach umbrella was not usable with a broken frame. We can't call it 5 star accommodations given age and finish, but the property is well maintained and the interactions with the host team were very professional and they were responsive. 4 Star experience with a 5 star view at 3 star price! We don't come to Oahu often, but value was good and we would stay here again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our Hawaii vacation and the stay at this beautiful condo was a big part of it. It is located right next to Waikiki, which is perfect, because it is just far enough away from all the hustle and bustle to relax and enjoy. The condo is beautifully decorated and very charming as well as very comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms are well stocked with everything you need on a daily basis. The property owner and property manager Thomas are very responsive, in case you need any assistance. Also, the parking spot in the underground garage is very convenient, as is the laundry facility with 4 washers and dryers. We would definitely stay here again in the future, had a very nice time!!!

Incredible view, super comfortable, great position.

  • 5 of 5

The view is incredible. We spent a lot of time on the balcony. The apartment was really comfortable and met our needs perfectly. And it's quiet, yet close to everything. We'll be back.

Great Ocean view

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice property in a pleasant neighbourhood at the quiet end of Waikiki, about a 15 min pleasant walk to the beginning of the Waikiki strip. Quirky decor, good view of water but the beach access was a little difficult. You need to ascend to the Ocean on one of 2 sets of stairs as there is no sandy beach in front of the property, only a rocky expanse. As the tides were high and the waves even higher swimming wasn't an option we had to walk to a nearby beach. The deck is a lovely place to have morning coffee, listening to the sounds of the surf while watching the surfers or to end the day watching the sunset. The lighting in the place is quite dim and it would have been nice to have some brighter inside lights, it was difficult to read at night. We enjoyed our stay and would rent this place again.

Map

Car: recommended

Considered by some to be the best location on Oahu, the peaceful Gold Coast offers incredible restaurants, swimming, snorkeling, the beautiful Kapiolani Park, the Honolulu Zoo and the Aquarium. And all of this is only a few minutes walk to the many restaurants and outrageous shopping of Waikiki.
