Waikiki PH with an 180° ocean view

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Niu Street, Honolulu, HI 96815, United States

The Space

Aloha!

Welcome to Waikiki and welcome to this one bedroom penthouse, that is more than 40-floors above Honolulu, with a wide 180-degree view that overlooks the ocean and every structure within an eighth-mile. It offers an an especially wide ocean view from Waikiki Beach to Diamond Head. This is a private resident and not a hotel.

The bedroom has:
Two full-size beds,
Dresser w/mirror,
Two nightstands w/lamp
A closet with hangers, iron and ironing board,
TV and Blu-ray player.

The bathroom has:
Shower,
Two sinks w/mirror.

The microfiber couch is positioned in the path of the afternoon sun so it's perfect for impromptu afternoon naps. The living room has a separate thermostat so the AC in the living room can be regulated separately from the AC in the bedroom. All the windows in the unit open, so you can take in the cool Hawaiian breeze that easily flows through a corner condo.

The kitchen is designed so you can sit and watch the ocean view from morning to sunset, and Oahu Ko'olau mountain range. There is a fire works show every Friday night at 7:45pm that you can view from the penthouse. The living room is comfortable with a microfiber couch, TV, Blu-ray player, with an assortment of the latest movies. There is a small bar for mixing drinks in the living room (you provide the alcohol). You can relax in the hot bath located inside the penthouse where you can view the ocean, or the city lights at night. The washer and dryer are just outside your front door and are shared with one neighbor.

A large recreation deck with grills and picnic tables for guest use gives you plenty of room to host outdoor gatherings. The building has a pool for resident and guest use.

The building is also a hotel, so telling any taxi driver or shuttle driver the hotel name will always have them knowing where to go.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed out third stay in Thomas' penthouse apartment. It was clean, comfortable, and has a view that just doesn't quit! Thank you, Thomas!

    April 2014
  • Thomas is a great host. He met us and showed us the room and discussed any questions we had. He was readily available by text messaging.
    His Penthouse has incredible views. The views from the from live up to the photos. Everything is immaculate, and the room is very comfortable. I would give it my highest recommendation if you are looking for an upscale place in Waikiki for a reasonable price. The location is very convenient. The 180 degree view is spectacular.

    February 2014
  • Nice view & good location. The shower system and AC need some update. The water temperature changes from comfortable to very hot to very cold in every 10 seconds. If you have allergy, this might not be your first choice.

    January 2014
  • Good location. Walkable distance to all things in Waikiki. The building is a little bit run down, but Thomas' place is in great condition. The place has a lot of space and great views of the ocean, fireworks, and city.

About
I retired from the U S Coast Guard after 20 years of search and rescue. I attended Hawaii Pacific University for 3 years majoring in the field of Marine Biology. I moved to Japan for 5 years and then returned to Hawaii. Strangely as it sounds, at the age of 59 years old, I am a male single parent with a 10 year old son (half Japanese). My son and I enjoy living in Waikiki and going to the beach.
