Waikiki Sunset, Honolulu HI Homes & Real Estate
Built in 1979, the Waikiki Sunset condotel hosts 435 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom units over a 38-floor tower. Waikiki Sunset is located in the Southeast portion of Waikiki, with great access to Eastern Waikiki spots like the Honolulu Zoo, Kapi'olani Regional Park, and even the Diamond Head Crater Hike if you travel by car. However, Waikiki Sunset also has walking-distance access to the more popular and well-known Waikiki landmarks like Waikiki Beach and Kalakaua Avenue, which makes this condotel a popular choice for guests who want the best of the traditional and nontraditional visitor experiences.
Waikiki Sunset is also one of the few buildings on O'ahu that allows legal short-term vacation rentals.

Waikiki Sunset provides a great opportunity for visitors to engage in downtown Waikiki nightlife and culture, with surrounding restaurants like Aloha Beach Dogs, Mami's Empanadas, Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar, d.k Steak House, and Tiki's Grill & Bar just down the street from the building. Likewise, a little over one block away on the corner of Kuhio Avenue and 'Ohua Avenue is an ABC Store, which provides fun tourist gifts and trinkets as well as vacation staples like sunscreen, water and snacks, and other daily necessities.
One of the most notable aspects of Waikiki Sunset's location is its proximity to Waikiki Beach, which is less than a 5-minute walk away from the residence. Arguably the most popular and well-known beach in Hawai'i, Waikiki Beach is an immensely popular spot for surfing, swimming, sunbathing, spending time with friends and family, eating, and more. There are shaded cabanas for those who need a break from the intense Hawaiian sun, and there are vendors stationed around the street selling various snacks and drinks. Not to mention, the entirety of Kalakaua Avenue along Waikiki Beach is stationed with restaurants, cafés, and stores, which means visitors can easily take a break from the beach and grab something to eat or drink.
Kalakaua Avenue is also known for its wide array of shopping spots, as it is the main shopping strip in Waikiki. Kalakaua Avenue hosts a variety of designer stores, fast-fashion stores, and more, making it one of the most consistently crowded areas in Waikiki.
For those who are not interested in the extremely crowded daily nature of this street and general area, other outdoor activities are found as close as just down Kuhio Avenue. These include the Honolulu Zoo, Kapi'olani Regional Park, and the Diamond Head Crater Hike, which are a 6-minute walk, 10-minute walk, and 14-minute drive away from Waikiki Sunset respectively.
