The Makiki Royal is one of those properties that isn't known for one thing – it's known for a few that make it stick out dramatically in the minds of Honolulu condo buyers
. One is its exclusivity. Listings are rare at this building, hitting the market about as often as The Eddie surf contest is held.
The picturesque moongate entrance is appropriately unique and memorable for such a building, with a koi pond just inside that maintains the mood wonderfully. Your mood gets even better inside.
Once you step into your home here, the reasons for the few listings become crystal clear. You're walking into residences with layouts of 2BR/2BA that measure either 1035 or 1545 sq ft - the latter comprise ¾ of the units here - and 3BR/3BA floor plans covering 1710 sq ft inside them! There are even 1BR/1BA homes with 1370 sq ft of space, but only 2 so they're the rarest breed of all.
Many have enclosed their lanais to make their residences bigger still. Regardless, you have views that take in a huge sweep around you because every unit is a corner unit. So you can often see from Diamond Head to Punchbowl, that whole huge slice of Honolulu, its city lights, and those two natural wonders bookending your vistas.
You may find it difficult to leave, but at least commuting Downtown is easy, with H1 just a few minutes away as well as the multi-lane one-way thoroughfares of Beretania & King Streets not far off, either.
Keeaumoku St is 1 block east, taking you right down to Foodland, Times, Safeway & Walgreens on Beretania, or take it just a couple of minutes further makai and there's WalMart/Sams Club and then the biggest outdoor mall in America, Ala Moana Center. If you can't find a new delicious restaurant or a shopping experience to enthrall you somewhere on that track, we don't know what will do the job.
