Living in Kakaako – Where Urban Paradise Meets The Ocean

Many people dream of living in Kakaako, one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Honolulu.

If you dream of living by a beach, and you’re not ready for the country, then living in Kakaako and the adjacent Ala Moana neighborhood in the heart of Honolulu is for you. These two neighborhoods are located directly across from Ala Moana Beach Park, where residents enjoy the beach and the park, at all times of the week. Evenings are especially beautiful.

Enjoy Beach Living in Kakaako Condos

Some home owners will say that condo living is not their thing, but don’t knock it till you try it, or at least learn about it first.

  • The ease of living. Lock up and go. No yard work and little maintenance.
  • Amazing condo pools.
  • Views. Many condos, especially ones on Oahu, come with beautiful ocean views.
  • What traffic? Live in the heart of Honolulu. Drive less, Biki Bike more.
  • Ahhh the convenience. Live, play, shop, and work close to home.

In the last several decades, especially on the mainland, suburbs were, and often still are, the place to live: the large yard, the cul de sac location, the white picket fence. What that idealistic vision often doesn’t take into account the endless hours of yard work, time spent in the car driving to and from work, stores, and activities, and all the maintenance that a house requires. It’s absolutely the right choice for many, but one big reason why Kakakao condos are so popular in Honolulu is that people want to be closer to everything. They want to spend time going to the movies, going out to restaurants, and getting their groceries in a store a few minutes away. Condos are a major draw for many these days, and Kakaako condos couldn’t be in a nicer place to live.

Evenings In The Park

Evenings in Kakaako are bustling with activity. People are heading out to dinner, shopping, and many others spend time at Ala Moana Beach Park enjoying the beach, relaxing with friends, jogging, biking, paddle boarding, walking, and taking in amazing Hawaiian sunsets. Many of the same people, also have time to enjoy the beach and the ocean in the mornings prior to going about their day. Most drive minimum miles since they are so close to everything. They have time, and time is one thing we all wish we had more of.

The lifestyle is the beauty of living in the Kakako and Ala Moana neighborhoods. It allows for enjoyment of some of the best things Honolulu has to offer.

A Lifestyle To Be Enjoyed By All

It’s also not surprising that the convenience-centered, active lifestyle is also attracting buyers to live in one of Honolulu’s most exclusive residences. Many of the owners are previous home owners who want the easy, beautiful beach living, and no longer want to deal with the upkeep of homes. This residence is definitely not priced for everyone, but there are all types of condos surrounding Ala Moana Beach Park to fit any budget. This beach lifestyle can be enjoyed by anyone.
