The Space

Well maintained high floor unit with great Diamond Head and mountain views. Ocean view from the lanai. Sit out on the lanai with your breakfast and feel the sweet morning air.

Large bedroom with king bed. Kitchen has lots of pots and pans for your gourmet cooking. Living room has sofa sleeper. Washer and dryer in the (website hidden) in the bedroom and the living room.

One secured covered parking stall. FREE....

Large pool, pool deck, and BBQ. Only two blocks to the best beach in Waikiki. Surf and sun. Close to the bus lines and shopping. Only four units per floor, so you will have lots of privacy.

Wifi is not included, but can be had for $57 per month. Sorry, I get it from Clear, and they don't prorate for less than a month. Just let me know in advance if you need it, and it will be ready to go when you arrive.

Guest Access

Pool and sauna are on the sixth floor, along with BBQ grill.

The Neighborhood

You will be so close to the beach. Just two blocks away. Restaurants and shops are close by too. And it's always fun to watch the tourists pass by on Kalakaua Avenue.

Getting around

Close to buses if you decide not to rent a car, and bus transportation is cheap and easy...

  • Our stay in the Waikiki Skytower was great. The unit offers beautiful views of the Ala wai canal, Diamond Head and of Waikiki. While we opted to not have wifi, we visited Starbucks which was 3 blocks away nearly every morning. The unit is immaculate and air conditioned. While not on the beach, it's not a long walk to the beach. Our daughters were there every day and not once did they complain about the distance. Advice for families. Even though they didn't complain, it was a bit small for our teenage girls to be on the sofa bed in the living room. We had a very nice week in the Skytower.

  • Tiare was so easy and wonderful to work with! She gave excellent instruction and everything was up to expectation and in many cases even better. Good AC and the washer and dryer came in handy. I also ended up needing a package delivered and she was able to help me get that worked out. The place was very clean. There are plenty of drawers and closet space to store your things and the bathroom was very nice. When we left here we went to Big Island and I got a call from Tiare that I had left a ring and car keys behind. I found out later my daughter had put them in a drawer and we operated from our luggage so I hadn't realized they were gone. Tiare was awesome and mailed them to us on big island which really saved our bacon!

    We would definitely stay here again next time.

  • Tiare was very accessible during my stay in Waikiki. The condo was lovely. The bed and pillows were amazingly comfortable. I didn't turn on the ac units that often, but when I did they cooled down the place very quickly. I didn't spend a whole lot of time in the condo (hello, I was in Hawaii and adventuring!) but when I did, I was very at home. The space was clean, there was ample dishes, towels, etc. for my use. I had a lovely experience and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great stay in Waikiki!!

  • The Waikiki Skytower was beautiful. It's a great location, easy to get to the beach which was important to us. The view was beautiful and the view was relaxing, especially at night. Tiare was extremely kind and easy to communicate with.

    The condo has everything that you need. We appreciated the full kitchen and cooked a lot while there. We enjoyed having our breakfast on the patio in the morning and typically ate the fruit from the close farmers markets each morning. DELICIOUS!

    We were fortunate to have a parking space that came with the facility. A plus for sure!

  • We LOVED our stay at the Wonderful Waikiki Skytower. It was everything and more than we expected. Tiara is an absolute joy to work with. Upon our arrival the unit was clean, well stocked with lots of ammenities your typical hotel would not have had, and the best part was the free parking.

    We were happy to find a bunch of beach toys and accesories (snorkeling gear, boggie boards, floaties) all clean and ready to use. There are dozens and dozens of towels including beach towels. There's little knick knacks that you don't considering packing but once you get there you realize you need (ziplock bags, wipes, etc.). We can tell Tiara is very thoughtful and considerate of guest, young or old. I'm huge when it comes to attention to detail and Tiara knocked it out of the ball park.

    Lastly the location is fantastic! Two blocks from the heart of Waikiki beach, 5 minutes from the main freeway to get you to any other part of the island. We spent probably only 15% of our time in Waikiki and the rest exploring the island (the North Shore, Kailua, the Lagoons by the Disney resort) and having such easy access around town was phenomonal.

    We look forward to our next stay here again!

  • Nice location, decent place, clean, no problems. Having secure parking at no extra charge is a plus if you have a car. Good view from 25th floor.

  • Tiare's condo on the 25th floor of Waikiki Skytower was wonderful. It was spacious, comfortable and well fitted-out with all facilities, including a spacious lanei. It had superb views of the mountains to the North, Diamond Head to the East and (some) ocean to the South. The location was absolutely perfect; in a quiet side street but less than a 10 minute walk to the beach. There were also plenty of basic food stores, shops and restaurants in the area. It was right next to a main bus route and there was a car rental nearby. All in all highly recommended. Tiare also provided an efficient 4G wi-fi facility at a nominal additional cost .

  • I and my husband stayed five days during our Hawaiian vacation first week of March. We had a fabulous time in Oahu thanks to Tiare's fantastic apartment and her incredible kindness. She allowed us to check in directly when we arrived and we were able to check out later than we needed to because her next guests were not arriving until a day later. I mention this because this meant she would have less time to get the apartment ready for the next people but she took that inconvenience upon herself to accommodate us and make our stay wonderful. Her apartment location can't be beat. It is in the heart of Waikiki, only half a block from buses, 3 short blocks from the beach, incredible balcony overlooking the ocean and the city which we enjoyed very much during breakfast and some evenings we decided to stay in. Within the apartment, the bed was very comfortable, the bed sheets so soft, and the kitchen stocked with all the cookware we needed, and more channels than we cared to watch on the TV, and overall very clean. The other huge plus was the free parking. We rented a car the last two days of our stay so that we could drive around the island and explore more of the city, and her parking spot came in handy. Overall, we LOVED staying in her apartment and if we ever return to Oahu, we will definitely contact her if her place is available and if its, we will see no need to check elsewhere. Thanks, Tiare!

  • As experienced travellers, like myself along with my family you have the ability if choosing any number of accommodation options. Even as a first time traveller the accommodation selection process can be a little daunting and is often handled by a travel agent.
    BUT........If you are looking to travel to Hawaii at any time and for any reason I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this apartment at Waikiki Sky Tower!
    From the initial booking stage to arriving in Hawaii, Tiare was extremely helpful every step of the way. Tiare was very easy to communicate with and has a passion for the area as well as ensuring our stay at the apartment was stress free! As we arrived on a mid morning flight, Tiare met us at the apartment early and provided access to be able to store our luggage - no stress!
    This apartment is situated in the absolute heart of Waikiki, with everything at your doorstep. The apartment is in a quiet street only one block from the beach - and the view from the 25th floor is sensational.
    One (of many) standouts for choosing this apartment was its security. Access to the building requires a security fob, as well as access to the lift and car park. (We hired a car during our stay and the ability to park the car for free, in a secure parking area within the building was FANTASTIC.)
    This apartment has everything you need for a 'self sufficient' type of holiday that no motel 'room' can provide. The apartment is has every appliance and utensil from a washer dryer, to the coffee pot and the knives and forks to the air conditioner you won't be found wanting anything!!
    The location of this apartment is another of it's many benefits. With only a few steps from the building you can catch any one of the many 'trolley' transports, find a supermarket, dine at any number of restaurants, shop at so many diverse locations (retail / markets / boutique) and of course access Waikiki beach - it is all right there!!

    We loved our stay in this apartment and can't recommend it highly enough - thanks Tiare!!

    Thanks so much, Kaine. You and your family are really NICE people, so it was a pleasure to have you at the Skytower. I look forward to seeing you all in Hawai`i again.

  • The apartment was very comfortable. It has a homey feel to it. The view was fantastic, as it was on the 25th floor. The kitchen and laundry/dryer was very useful. The building was very secure, as a transponder is required to open the garage door, the building entrance, and to use the elevator. The parking stall was easy to get in and out. The location was great. Five minute walk to the beach. The apartment building was only a few hundred feet from Kuhio Ave, yet it was very accessible by car, as it is situated on a secluded street. Internet access was an additional cost. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks Tiare!

About
I'm an artist with an MFA from UH. But I became a real estate agent in order to support my disabled husband of 50 years. I manage this great condo, only two blocks from the beach. I love living in Hawaii. For three years, my husband and I sailed around the South Pacific on our sailboat. Finally, we came to Hawaii, and we have pretty much been here ever since.
