Hokua is the first true luxury condo in Honolulu
. When sales commenced late 2003, many questioned if there was a need for such level of luxury, coming with a hefty price tag (cosidering year 2003 price levels). The need was there, and 95% of the units were sold before sales commenced. By the time of Hokua's completion - January 2006 - all units were sold and resale prices year 2006 were in many cases close to tripple what original buyers had paid!
This is a very special luxury condo, especially due to the incredible ocean views from almost every unit in the building. The building is very wide - running parallel to the ocean - with many units having living and bedrooms facing the ocean in a floor to ceiling glass window setting.
Until buildings such as Waiea
and Park Lane
were completed, Hokua was widely considered the number 1 luxury condo in Honolulu, and until today, Hokua is still the condo in the luxury category that boasts the most units with picture perfect ocean views.
Hokua was built before much stricter building guidelines were proposed by the Hawaii Community Development Authority
- calling for protected view channels / corridors - which allows most condo units in Hokua to have very expansive ocean views. Especially the centrally located “D” stack units offer a sweeping 180 degree ocean views, including Diamond Head and Waikiki skyline.
With all the new condo developments in Kakaako
, considering how the ocean views may change is an important aspect to consider. Luckily, the way Hokua is positioned, the vast majority of the units have no or minimal future view risk.
The building has a serviced elevator to be used by handymen, contractors and anyone else carrying equipment, materials etc. Hokua has a strict policy in place, not allowing work related items to be carried through the regular elevators, ensuring the utmost comfortable and pleasant lifestyle for its residents. Owners who are away from Honolulu, but needs work completed in their unit, can arrange for Hokua's staff to let workers in. Overall, the service offered by the Resident Manager, Duane Komine, and his team is second to none.
Arguably the best location in Kakaako, Hokua is just a short stroll away from Ala Moana Shopping Center, yet the location feels very private without the heavy foot traffic nearby. Conveniently, on the 1F, set away from the residence entrance there are 2 casual, but quality, restaurants.
Amenities are top of the line and the BBQ stations are spread out strategically to create utmost privacy, each sitting under a large covered cabana, making it possible to enjoy a barbeque, even on a (rare) rainy day as well.
Storage isn’t always easy to come by in Honolulu, but each Hokua condo has at least 1 storage unit, which is large and usable, located by the parking stalls.
On the mountain side of the buiding's 1st floor - away from the residential lobby - there are 2 casual restaurants: Panya
and Tango Cafe
