Location of Big Surf Condo Building

We’ve got two units for sale at Big Surf, in Waikiki. This Waikiki condo building is in a great area, close to Ala Moana Shopping Center and all the action of the west side of Waikiki.

Big Surf is near the Hilton Hawaiian Village, The Modern, Waikiki Prince Hotel, and the Waikiki Marina. It’s just a short distance across the street to Waikiki Beach and Magic Island, as well. Public transport is very convenient in this area, and neither unit has parking included. There is easy and relatively inexpensive hourly parking across the street at the Marina, or street parking is also possible, when needed.

Layout of Big Surf Condo Units

Big Surf is a great building because it offers 3BR units. 3BR (and 3BA!) condos in Waikiki can be hard to find, especially at this price point, making it a great value for the square footage. Each of the three bedrooms has its own en suite bathroom, making this property ideal for owners with roommates, out-of-town guests, or large families.

The units are also configured so that they could potentially be rented as two or even three separate units, to try to maximize income. One of the three bedrooms even has its own separate entrance to the outside. There is a lot of flexibility in the configuration of Big Surf condos.

Rental of Units or Second Home?

Both of these two Big Surf condo units are subject to a 30-day minimum rental, though the building was originally built as a condotel. The units also may be sold with existing furnishings. Due to the location and amenities in the area, this building has been popular over the years for legal, 30 day+ rentals. Potential tenants could include longer term tenants or even seasonal renters, airline employees, TV and Movie industry workers, construction employees, and traveling nurses, among others.

These condos are also GREAT as a second home in Waikiki. With 3 BR and 3 full BA, they are large enough to accommodate not only you, but also your extended family and/or friends with whom you might like to vacation or live seasonally. The location is perfect, and the price to purchase will not break the bank! This is an ideal second home on Oahu for those who love to visit!

Unit Upgrades & Views

Both Unit 301 and 401 of the Big Surf Condos have newer kitchens. 401 has a large kitchen island.

Kitchen Island

Unit 301 also has updated bathrooms, popcorn ceiling removed, crown molding and durable, tiled walls.

The lanais of both units are large and fun for people-watching and enjoying an evening beverage while watching the sunset. You look out toward Ala Moana Boulevard, with peekaboo views of the Marina ocean scene, and pleasing treetop views fronting the major luxury hotels across the street.

Showings of Big Surf 301 and 401

Units 301 and 401 have been constantly rented, so we have not been able to show them easily over the past month or so. Starting soon, this month, we will be able to accommodate showings fairly easily. In the meantime, please see the Matterport Tours on both properties for detail on the layout.
