The Punahou Gardens Apartments rises up near the mid-point between Punahou School
and Makiki District Park on Wilder Ave. There's actually 2 buildings that make up the whole, one 4 stories and the other 13, with a common entrance that serves both.
Every residence is a Studio layout of 360 sq ft, but you'll find variations here, as you would in other Honolulu condos
, arising from remodeling that has been done and how recently. 1st Floor residences, in both buildings, are the only ones to have lanais. Smaller sized, they still have the room you need to step outside and enjoy the Punahou area's calm & atmosphere, barring the Carnival weekend, of course.
Even without a lanai you get nicely open views to the mountains and the city since you're living at a higher floor than almost all of your neighbors. The single and dual level homes that are so common around you gives your surroundings a friendlier and more inviting ambience.
The kamaaina feel of this neighborhood still permeates its streets, with its vintage houses, greener environment and a definite deceleration in mood from the other side of H1. You'll love strolling nearby, taking in the more open skies and the air of and older Hawaii.
For driving purposes, it's within a quicker and easier commuting distance to Downtown and you can be at UH in a few minutes at most just by heading east down Wilder Ave.
Even when you are away, the building has a Resident Manager to keep an eye on things and take care of issues that arise. Even if the stress rises, your swimming pool awaits for a cooling, rejuvenating dip. That's a feature you don't often get at this affordable price point in Honolulu condos. You do here.
These units are best for first home buyers or those who are downsizing, sacrificing some room for the advantages of living in this storied neighborhood that continues to have that certain something locals love in their lives. You may also be interested in.... Oahuan
