About Waikiki Sunset Condotels like the Waikiki Sunset condo have become more and more popular with Hawaii vacationers, due to the kitchen facilities that give them meal independence, much of the same hotel services, but often at a lower price. This attractiveness has made them equally popular with real estate investors because they can produce a good, steady income.
The Waikiki Sunset condo sits on the Diamond Head side of Waikiki, in a generally quieter area of the district. Quiet doesn't mean remote, however. You can easily walk to the Honolulu Zoo, Kapiolani Park and, most importantly, the beach in no time at all.
Being a vacation property, rather than a residence, it will be your guests who enjoy the amenities most of the time. They are crucial to your investment, though, as they are part of the sales pitch that brings business & bookings. Your Waikiki Sunset condo benefits directly from the heated pool, attractive location, central air-conditioning and front-desk services. You can even turn the management and booking over to Aston Hotels and let them handle the headaches of maintenance and dealing with vacationers.
The views are excellent, with even numbers on the ocean side and odd on the mountain side. Being separated from the beach by some large hotel structures, you usually have just partial ocean views. However, many on that side have an excellent vantage point for the always spectacular sunsets. There's also a lot to be said for looking out at the green Koolau mountains and the active city life & lights of Honolulu, too.
Two important factors you should know. First, many, but not all, units have converted to Fee Simple. Second, this building is zoned as residential now, so you must have a current NUC (Nonconforming Use Certificate) to rent daily or short-term stays. Otherwise you fall under the 30-day minimum booking restrictions.
A Waikiki Sunset condo could be an excellent way for you to invest in Waikiki real estate, giving you a piece of a vacation property that's well-known and well-reviewed online. In many ways, much of the hard work is already done for you. All you need to do now is buy in.
