If you’ve dreamed of owning an apartment in Waikiki—and don’t mind buying leasehold—a new listing on the Ala Wai Canal with a $128,000 price tag might interest you.

Just put on the market this week, the one-bedroom, one-bath unit in the Royal Aloha has been recently renovated with granite countertops and new appliances, cabinets and tile.


“It’s a great location, close to the beach, close to public transportation,” says realtor James Lewis. “It’s being sold fully furnished. It’s in turn-key condition.”  

While the apartment isn’t terribly large, 513 square feet, Lewis points out that it includes a comparatively spacious 50 square foot lanai with an view of the mountains, Ala Wai Canal and the Ala Wai Golf Course.

Parking isn’t included, but the beach is within walking distance and public bus lines are even closer. “It’s perfect for people working in the area,” notes Lewis.

The location also makes it convenient for UH students. Alternatively, several of the units in the building are used as vacation rentals, with rates ranging from $90 to $150 a night.

The unit is $128,000 leasehold. The lease expires January 2042.

You can check it out yourself at an open house on Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. Visit Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties for more information.
