Few Waikiki condos
have anything like a bad location, but even fewer have one as good as the Makee Ailana condo. You can begin with the most obvious reason – 1 block to the ocean and you can see the beach every step of the way.
A large share of the residents can also look out on the ocean right from home, no walking required. The one issue directly south is the Queen Kapiolani Hotel, which does block some views in that direction. On the east, however, your vista is vastly expanded by your neighbors being the Honolulu Zoo and acres of parkland. The tallest obstructions in your way are the palm trees that sway in the tradewinds. So far, no one's complained about them.
All the units at Makee Ailana have an indulgent layouts of 1014 sq ft with 2BRs, larger than average for Waikiki. The lanais measure another 102 to 310 sq ft, the 01 stack having wrap-around versions that are on the high side. Some have enclosed that space to add more interior that can be opened fully to the cool breezes.
Your spot on Kapahulu creates additional unique advantages. Longtime area residents complain constantly about the traffic here, but you're removed from that completely on this border avenue. It's also a straight walk, or short drive, up that same street to a number of restaurants and boutique stores that will keep you coming back.
The Makee Ailana condos is the answer to the most common Waikiki living problems - traffic and being crowded in by towering neighbors - plus, to get closer to the beach you'd probably have to check into a hotel. With all of that, what's not to like?
