Description
On the edge of Honolulu's Kapiolani Park, this Gold Coast custom-built penthouse overlooks the majestic ocean, swaying palm trees and Waikiki's famous shoreline. Remodeled in 2012, in the Hawaiian Island style, this penthouse includes rich custom cabinetry of Koa and Mango woods, a fossil stone entry hall, and 24x36-inch travertine floor tiles. The kitchen features Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, soapstone countertops (which is nonporous and resistant to bacteria) and a custom glass back-splash that resembles the ocean's waters. This custom glass also enhances various doors, windows and shelves throughout the apartment. Enjoy the 3-zone AC on those warm Hawaiian days, or listen to your music of choice from built-in speakers in each room. At days' end, relax in your Hammered Copper Japanese Soaking tub. Then refresh with your favorite drink and watch Waikiki's city lights from your 245 square foot ocean lanai.

About Castle Surf Apts
  • Address: 2937 Kalakaua Ave, Honolulu, HI 96815.
  • Built in 1960 with 37 Units on 6 Floors, 1 to 3BR Floor plans, Pets: No.
  • Not high on amenities due to the time it was built and the desire to maximize the footprint for the residences themselves.
  • Named after the very wealthy Castle family, whose vast mansion stood here up until the mid-1900's. They're gone, but the prime real estate remains.

About Castle Surf
The Castle Surf Diamond Head condo was one of the buildings that went up in the accelerating construction after Hawaii won Statehood in 1959. However, the fact that it still stands, and the prices its condos go for, should tell you that this is no quickly-built property now in its declining years. Far from it.

The Castle Surf is a fee-simple condominium, distinguishing it from many of the other Gold Coast condos that are cooperatives. That's one of the reasons the maintenance fees are lower than for many of its neighbors.
