Beautifully upgraded condo in Moiliili

Since I live nearby, I may be biased when I say the location of Kapiolani House couldn’t be more convenient to shopping, restaurants and as a launching point to other points around Oahu. You’re situated in town and just a few minute drive to the H1.

This newly listed two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is bright and airy with an open-design floor plan. The kitchen, dining and living areas easily flow into each other making it an easy space for entertaining.

A feature I love about the attractively redone kitchen: It features two bar seats allowing for conversation over a glass of wine while preparing dinner. It’s always nice to have company while you’re getting your mise en place.

The 1,200-square-foot corner unit offers loads of upgrades including granite countertops, bamboo flooring and Berber carpeting. Click here for details.

Amenities include a pool, a whirpool and a sauna, along with a barbecue area where you can summon your inner Bobby Flay.

The building’s central location puts you within walking distance to Waikiki and right across from Ala Wai Park, where on any given night, you’ll find leagues playing soccer and softball. It’s also home to the Waikiki Beachboys Canoe Club, which offers social paddling on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons – if you’ve always wanted to try the sport, this is a terrific low-key introduction. For those who enjoy growing their own flowers and vegetables, a community garden is adjacent to the park.

Two parking stalls are included in the price; guest parking is available.
