Location and Convenience in Waikiki

A two-bedroom, two-bath unit with more than 1,000 square feet just came on the market at 1717 Ala Wai.

Located at the west end of Waikiki, almost at the corner of Ala Wai and Kalakaua, it’s an easy shot to downtown, and walking distance to Waikiki's main drag, making it an ideal location for anyone who frequents both downtown Honolulu and Waikiki.

The kitchen has been upgraded, with newer cabinets and appliances, and the floor is laminate and tile, ideal for the hot and humid Hawaii climate. The rest of the house is in good condition, just waiting for a bit of TLC and style to bring it to life.

The building has a BBQ area, a pool, and a hot tub overlooking the city, great space for entertaining and enjoying time with friends.

The $631 monthly maintenance fee includes cable, water and sewer. The building also provides security.

One of the apartment's best perks? The unit comes with a reserved parking stall, and additional guest parking is available as well. The street parking in front of the building is also free.

I’ve had many friends who have lived in this building, and all of them have raved about the location and the building. It’s near one of my favorite sushi restaurants, Chiba-Ken on Ena Road, and the amazing Sunset Pool bar at the Modern Hotel overlooking the Marina.

Money Talk: $448,000 Fee Simple
