The Imperial Hawaii Resort Waikiki condos stand out as being an unusual situation, even for Hawaii's often unique real estate environment. This building, which sits at the makai end of the Lewers Street Beachwalk, is a timeshare property. Except for 8 units.
Those standout condos, the only ones that can be owned outright, are primarily on the Penthouse Level and the 21st Floor. Their layouts vary widely, running from Studio/1BA (317 sq ft), 1BR/1BA (575 sq ft), 1BR/2BA (480 or 530 sq ft), 2BR/2BA (925 sq ft) and two 3BR Penthouse units with 2.5 and 3BA that both have 3325 sq ft.
Lanais can be from 44 to 250 sq ft in the more typical layouts, but ballooning to 1420 sq ft on the two Penthouse residences. From those different spaces you can look out at the city lights of Waikiki, the Koolau Mountains rising in the north and the ocean waves that roll less than ½ block from your address.
You live at a fantastic turning point here, between the huge, roomy Ft DeRussy Beach and the classic sands of Waikiki Beach, giving you a choice that will cause all kinds of envy in your friends.
You're also right on the Beachwalk collection of restaurants and shops that provide numerous places and ways to spend pau hana time. Just outside that strip is Kalakaua Ave, with even more options that will never run out.
With just 8 units available to own, the Imperial Hawaii Resort condo market is a tight one. You'll need to keep a sharp eye out, because they're not often for sale. After reading this, it's easy to see why.
These 8 units allow for short-term vacation rentals. Here is a Guide to Waikiki Condotels
