Penthouse Life is an extraordinary thing. There you are way up there, most likely with a large amount of square footage at your disposal, a castle in the sky to further the old adage. An apt position for those who have truly reached the top. In this and following blogs, my intent is to present those rare penthouse properties here in Honolulu.
Ko’olani PH7 (MLS# 201418351) View to Diamond Head
First up is Ko’olani. There are actually two for sale as of this writing, PH7 and unit #4605. The penthouse units, a total of 11, stretch over 3 floors (46th – 48th) with interior living space on the 46th – 47th and the 48th floor being a rooftop deck. These two are basically mirror opposites of one another, boasting 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths each with stunning views from Diamond Head over Waikiki’s Skyline to the Marina and the Pacific Ocean.
Living space is much more ‘house-like’ than condo due to their two levels of interior living space: an en suite bedroom, living room, dining room, half bath, and kitchen on the first floor, and three more bedrooms and baths on the second, a good set up for those that like separation of space. All rooms have glorious views through their 9′ floor to ceiling windows.
It goes without saying that finishes and appliances are all top shelf at Ko’olani, including a wine cooler in the kitchen, and another rare treat for Honolulu Condos – gas cooking appliances!

Ko’olani 4605 (MLS# 201414057) Kitchen/Dining
Amenities abound at Ko’olani:
- theater for 20 people
- billiards room
- game room
- business center
- conference room
- party room
- fitness center
- heated lap & children’s pool
- whirl pool
- 2 tennis courts
- 6 BBQ areas
But perhaps the best feature of these penthouses are the enormous, private roof decks, the third floor of these triplexes that are the size of many 1 bedroom Waikiki condos. The perfect spot to check out weekly fireworks, host Al Fresco dinner parties, or just escape into the sky.
Ready to Live the Penthouse Life?
Ko’olani, in Hawaiian, is the balance that upholds the Heavens. The name for the home you return to for replenishment and peace. As I said, an apt position for those who live the Penthouse Life.
