The Ala Wai Cove is a home for Honolulu condo shoppers seeking a place close to everything, but guaranteed to provide a slower pace and quieter times. The building rises right where University ends its makai run, a site that gives it distinct advantages.
Across the street is Ala Wai Community Park and Ala Wai Elementary, two extremely low-rise entities that will stay that way, so your view of the canal and Waikiki is permanent. They also promise low noise levels to add to the positives of living here.
Traffic levels are very low here, even though you're just off busy Kapiolani Blvd. The only exceptions being the pickup & dropoff times for nearby Iolani School.
The units themselves come in a layouts of Studio/1BA (402 or 414 sq ft), 1BR/1BA (551 – 605 sq ft) and 2BR/1BA (696 – 811 sq ft). Your lanai outside measures 55 to 253 sq ft, bringing views of the Ala Wai Canal, the Koolau Mountains and the city lights around you. The one exception being the lanai-less 08 stack.
It's an easy drive up the street to H1 and just a few minutes more to UH and the rest of Manoa. Turn left on Kapiolani and you can be at Ala Moana Center or the burgeoning leisure choices of Kakaako.
Pet owners – don't miss this! Unlike most Honolulu condos, you can have 2 pets here (verify) – and currently there's not size limit on dogs (verify). A rare opportunity for an affordable eternal view and a place that welcomes pet parents so openly.
