The Best of Both Worlds at 311 Ohua Avenue #205E – Waikiki Condo for Sale

If you dream of being near the beach in one of the most world-famous Hawaii resort districts in the world, but there’s another side of you that wants quiet and a little more low-key when you arrive home from a long work day. Look no further — there is a great value in Waikiki at one of the most popular residential buildings — the Leisure Heritage located at 311 Ohua Avenue, unit #205E.

Larger than Average Interior Living Space

This iconic Waikiki condo building was built in 1974 during the days when condos were built with larger interior square feet, so at 900 interior square feet, there’s lots of room for relaxing or entertaining. The unique plus about this condo is that it has a covered lanai located off the living room and two bedrooms — three total —which is unusual, and considered a higher-end amenity by bringing the beauty of the outdoors in. It is also a corner unit which gives a lot more privacy. The total living space with lanais is 994 square feet.

When the building was built in the ’70s it actually was considered a luxury building, so it still has the higher end ambiance compared to many other older buildings in Waikiki. It’s also well managed with a dedicated on-site manager and a very proactive Board of Directors and Association with strong financials. Buyers should always examine condo docs and ask questions about building maintenance and management, and the Leisure Heritage is one of the most solid well-run buildings in Waikiki.

Great Premium Location

Besides its spacious size, the other great value is location, location, location. The condo is located on Ohua Avenue which is on the Diamond Head end of Waikiki and on one of the quieter streets between Kuhio and the Ala Wai Boulevard. This section is considered almost all residential — with the exception of the Waikiki Banyan located at the intersection of Kuhio and Ohua — so you won’t have a lot of hustle and bustle of the busier resort main streets and the people around you will be local residents who live in the neighborhood. The best of both worlds equates to having the benefit of being just two blocks away from the sun and surf at Waikiki Beach and the resort lifestyle of being able to walk to some of the best restaurants, retail shopping, Kapiolani Park events, Waikiki Ho’olauleas (street block parties), and local farmers’ markets.

Easy Access In & Out of Waikiki

The other great advantage of living at 311 Ohua Avenue is that there is easy convenient access in and out of Waikiki through a left turn onto Kuhio Avenue and driving into your condo through a left turn from the Ala Wai Boulevard. So even if there are Waikiki events happening on the main Kalakaua Avenue, you will be away from the traffic jam. It can’t get any better — active resort living in Waikiki but returning home to the quiet residential area that’s home. This two bedroom, two bath Waikiki condo is priced at $520,000 fee simple which is an amazing value for being only two blocks from the beach!
