From the short list of amenities it's understandable if you're confused about 3003 Kalakaua condo. How could this be the same building that has condos going for as much as $7 million? The answer is that there's a few reasons.
The first is the most obvious. It sits on the aptly named Gold Coast, under the gaze of Diamond Head itself. Few other stretches of real estate are in as much demand, not just in the U.S., but possibly the world. In a top-level property market like Hawaii is, this is the high point of it all.
Second, 3003 Kalakaua condos are fee simple, so you not only live on the Gold Coast, you own a piece of it. With so much leasehold property in the Islands, outright land ownership isn't guaranteed, so this is not only a residence, it's actual wealth. The real estate market might still be in trouble in many places, but rarely will that ever touch the condos on Hawaii's Gold Coast
. It's recession-proof.
Lastly, it is the condos themselves that produce the high values and pricing that these enjoy. There are only 2 units per floor giving you much more privacy and more space, regardless of which one you own. All of the condos feature 3BRs and 2BAs, with over 2,000 sq ft of floorspace to spread out upon. Then there's the view.
Your large lanai faces right out onto the ocean, from a vantage point few other buildings can claim today. 3003 Kalakaua is one of the fortunate few structures put up before building codes required construction be set further back from the water. As a resident here, you can revel in the ocean waves like no other home built since in Hawaii.
The magic and beauty of this condo is deceptive. It doesn't have any of the flashy extras people have come to expect in modern buildings. Instead you'll find its unmistakable allure in the best things of life - the wonder and power of Nature itself. Come here and you'll understand. You may also be interested in.... 3019 Kalakaua
