The Esplanade condos in Hawaii Kai is actually 4 buildings, an entire complex, that was a leader in Hawaii's lifestyle residences. Built in 1973, it is still the only high-rise directly on the marina. The height advantage of the Esplanade condos gives residents a much more sweeping view of the waters than the single-family homes that make up the rest of the shoreline. That's a guarantee, by the way, because every single unit faces that way.
You get more than elevation to make those house dwellers envious. The Esplanade's amenities are go beyond the expected, making this a resort-like dwelling. Active residents have an Exercise Room, of course, but there's also tennis courts, the golf driving net, a jogging/walking path that runs along the marina front and a putting green for when it's time to wind down or improve your short game a little. The pool is something special, too. It's easily one of the biggest condo pools in Honolulu, ready for a few laps or a cooling dip whenever prescribed.
Your time at home is comfortable as well, due to the floor plans that are very competitive. 1BR units begin at 760 sq ft, while the 2BRs, which make up the majority of the condos, have at least 1,100 sq ft for you to make home. The remaining 22 units are 3BR condos or 3BR townhome layouts, some of the penthouse units having 2 floors. That means extra lanais to take full advantage of their incredible vantage point from the top. In fact, most Esplanade condos have lanais of 120 sq ft, a generous space for enjoying the boat traffic gliding by.
For the boaters out there, the Esplanade has private docks available for residents. If you have a craft, or are considering taking the plunge, this presents another incredible opportunity. Think about walking down there and taking off on the ocean in minutes. Freedom itself.
These are primarily Fee Simple properties, though some Leasehold units do remain. Whichever is your preference, the joys of living in this dynamic community, right on the waters, will make you the envy of all. You may also want to check out.... Kalele Kai

. Interesting Note
: Each condo's parking stall assignment is defined by condo map #255, recorded at the Bureau of Conveyances.
Many years ago one penthouse owner insisted on parking both their cars side by side, rather than having their assigned stalls split by a garage staircase. This temporary accommodation results in many residents - whether they know it or not - parking their cars one stall over from their official assigned stalls!
Tip: It is prudent to confirm the exact location of deeded assigned parking stalls by reviewing a copy of condo map #255 at the resident manager's office.
