Top 5 Reasons to Buy on the Gold Coast of Oahu

Oahu is a large island that has a lot of different neighborhoods to offer. The “Gold Coast” is a small community of highly desirable condominiums directly on the ocean. It consists of about 15 different residential buildings and a few hotels. This neighborhood is located on the very end of Waikiki at the base of Diamond Head. Here are top 5 reasons to invest in a Gold Coast Condo:

1. | Ocean Front Living

Do you like to swim? Do you prefer the ocean views and sounds of waves breaking? If so, these condominiums are located directly on the ocean. I’m talking only steps from the Gold Coast’s seawall that lines the properties. Also, the famous silver staircase makes it easy for you to walk down and plunge into the crystal clear water. It is a glorious place to swim, dive, and listen to the ocean crash against the wall. Tongs, which is a world-famous surf break is located directly in front of the seawall. It makes it easy to grab your board, hop in, and paddle out any time of day.

2. | Kapiolani Park

Walking, running, and lounging in Kapiolani Park is a great way to pass the time. The park is located right across the street from the Gold Coast. You’ll find a huge beautiful fountain along with some seriously gorgeous banyan trees. The area makes great shade for a picnic, yoga, reading a book, instagram photos, a nap and more. The park is dog friendly, for anyone who worries about condo life for your four-legged friends. The Honolulu Zoo and Waikīkī Aquarium are also located on the outskirts of the park, for

3. | Close to Waikiki

The heart of Waikiki is only a walk or bike ride away. The best thing about the Gold Coast is that it’s tucked away from all of that city noise, yet close enough to go surf the famous breaks such as Queens or Canoes. Eating at all the best restaurants or catching a cocktail at a great bar is probably the best part of Waikiki for me. Shopping is also a huge draw. You can spend the day walking down Kalakaua Ave and popping into all the different stops if you are feeling up for some retail therapy.

4. | Great Rental Income

Rental income on the Gold Coast can be very profitable. The close proximity makes it very attractive for renters! It is an overall great investment for people who want to spend 6 months in Hawai’i and rent out their units for the remainder of the year. Buying a piece of the Gold Coast is certainly a very special real estate investment because there’s truly nothing like it in Honolulu. Smaller high-rise condominiums directly on the ocean in one of the best locations you could ask for.

5. | Lifestyle

The main draw of living on the Gold Coast is the Lifestyle. Along with Ocean front living, you’re close to some of the best beaches in Oahu. Nature lovers, don’t just have Kapiolani Park, they also have the Diamond Head State Monument and Hike and are within 30 min of Na Ala Hele: Manoa Falls Trail, Punchbowl Crater, and Wiliwilinui Hiking Trail. I would be amiss not to mention the Waikiki Night Life scene and the proximity to Universities the Gold Coast offers.  The rich history of the area is also a very special part of the area.
