Hawaiian King Condos-Unit #401


This is our home-away-from home in the Heart of Waikiki, at the Hawaiian King Condos, and we are proud to offer it to you. We stay here part of the year, so it is very clean and well-maintained.

We did an extensive remodel in 2017. Our new upgrades include:
o New floor tile throughout entire unit
o Addition of granite-topped kitchen island with four bar stools, new sink and faucet
o Matching granite kitchen counter
o Custom kitchen cabinets, new garbage disposal
o Matching granite computer desk
o King bedroom set with under-bed drawers, matching dresser and tv stand
o Large and comfortable couch with fold-out bed, mattress and mattress topper, along with large matching chair and ottoman
o All light fixtures and ceiling fans (2) were replaced in entire unit, wall sconce lights added, and dimming dining lights above island installed
o All walls and ceilings were re-textured and custom painted
o New baseboards throughout unit
o New toilet, bathroom vanity and fixtures, mirrors
o New artwork and new air conditioner
o Many new amenities, including Tommy Bahama bedding, new mattress covers and sheets, towels, kitchen items, drapes, rugs and beach items

This is without a doubt, one of the most upgraded and stylish units in this building. Plenty of hooks added throughout unit for hanging wet towels and swim suits. Very high-end, yet really comfortable, and well organized.

The desk staff at the Hawaiian King are exceptional. The front desk manager is David Morehouse. His name appears in many of the great reviews we have received due to his knowledge and desire to help others. The staff knows all the permanent residents and many return visitors. It is very likely they will greet you by name during your stay.

Many guests do not rent a car for Waikiki City driving because of the dense traffic. If renting a car for a day trip to outer island, you can return after hours to the Enterprise Rental car rental lot across the street. (Mention Hawaiian King to get a discount.) Also, you can rent a car from the airport towards the end of your trip, and then return car to airport when catching your outbound flight, and avoid shuttle/taxi fees. The bus is ~$2.50 to the airport to pick up a rental car.

NOTE: There is a small bar in the front of the building, along with a small convenience store. This condo is in the very back, last end unit, farther away from the bar and street noise. We specifically bought this unit because we stay at Hawaiian King, but wanted a secluded and private condo away from the street.
