Open house pick of the week: Waikiki
If you’re house hunting in Waikiki this weekend, you don’t have to limit yourself to only a few open houses and you can save yourself the frustration of looking for parking with Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties’ fourth annual “Waikiki is Open” event on Sunday, July 15.
From 2 to 5 p.m., they’ll open the doors to more than 50 listings during the one-day event. Complimentary transportation will be provided so you can easily get from one place to the next. Two trolleys displaying the "Waikiki is Open" banner will make continuous loops around Waikiki. Plus two Pedicab services will run between the Sunset on the Beach area and the fountain on Kalakaua Avenue near the Elks Club.
Here’s just a sampling of what will be open:
Looking for luxury? Check out this oceanfront double unit at the Tahitienne on Kalakaua Avenue ($2,288,000 fee simple). Gaze out at the ocean while you enjoy your favorite tunes on the sound system that’s installed throughout the unit. Bonus – all the designer furniture is included in the price.
If you don’t happen to have a few million dollars set aside for a home, you may consider this two-bedroom condo at Coral Terrace Apartments on Aloha Drive ($345,500 fee simple). With only 36 units in the boutique building, you can enjoy a more personal atmosphere while still being in the middle of Waikiki.
Maybe you’re looking for an investment property or just a tiny piece of paradise to call your own. This studio at the Pacific International Hotel on Ala Wai Boulevard ($109,000 fee simple) has a super low maintenance fee ($222 a month) that includes central A/C and electricity.
If you visit three open houses or more during the event, you’ll score a coupon from Jimmy Buffett’s at the Beachcomber for a burger and margarita or beer for $12.
Can you say, “Vegas, baby”? There’ll also be an entry form you can fill out for a chance to win a trip for two to Sin City courtesy of Vacations Hawaii.
On the event day, a complete list of participating listings, a map and the entry form will be available at www.cbpacific.com, in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and MidWeek, at Jimmy Buffett’s at the Beachcomber, on the "Waikiki is Open" trolleys, pedicabs, and at the open houses. You can park for free with validation at Jimmy Buffett’s at the Beachcomber. For a map of other major parking areas in Waikiki, click here.
