Waikiki is Oahu’s most popular tourist attraction and has a diverse and lively residential neighborhood.
Waikiki was the location of one of Hawaii’s most famous wars in the 1700s. Hawaiian Kings and Queens used to spend their summers in Waikiki throughout the 1800s. By the early 1900s, the seaside iconic hotels, Moana Surfrider and The Royal Hawaiian, had been built, laying the groundwork for what would become Hawaii’s largest tourism destination.
Waikiki is the most popular tourist destination on Oahu, and is a diversified and lively residential area. After a $100 million endeavor in the 1970s, Waikiki grew from a tiny village of surfers and creatives in the 1960s, to an urban area of high rises. Waikiki Beach, Kuhio Beach, Grays Beach, Fort DeRussy Beach, and Kahanamoku Beach are just a few of the beautiful white sand beaches on the island. There are also local attractions such as Kapiolani Park, Kahanamoku Lagoon, Kuhio Beach Park, and Ala Wai Harbor. The Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium, and the iconic Waikiki coastline are also among the neighborhood’s most popular family-friendly destinations.
Kapiolani Park is a year-round practice facility for a number of sports and activities that local teams participate in. The Kapiolani Bandstand and the Waikiki Shell provide performance venues for local and national acts to share their talent with Hawaii’s residents. The Waikiki coastline also provides enjoyment for the whole family. You can surf where Duke Kahanamoku, the founder of modern surfing, once taught famous people how to surf in the 1950s and 1960s. Don’t want to put forth the effort? Take a trip on one of the many catamarans to get a different view on the Waikiki skyline.

This hotspot combines a tropical island ambiance with all of the modern amenities of a city in a unique way. Everyone is in a vacation mood around here!

Solana will do what it takes to sell your home and get you in to the house of your dreams. She went over and beyond to help us sell our townhouse AND helped us buy a beautiful home in Kapolei. Solana makes this whole process easy.
Solana has been a great asset to my home but I g and selling experience. She has integrity, knowledge and experience in this field. We are so grateful to have worked with her.
Working with Solana put all of my first time home buying worries at ease. She is thorough, communicative, honest and an extremely hard worker. She stayed in cadence with me every step of the way. I will definitely work with her again if/when I have the opportunity to invest in other properties.
Solana has been a wonderful help in renting out our home. It was our first time and she guided us through the paperwork and process. When we needed anything fixed she had great recommendations. Overall we are very happy with her and her team.
Solana is a great realtor. She was good at listening to what we wanted and was patient with us as we changed our minds, changed neighborhoods and back again. She was very responsive to all forms of communication; email, text, phone call, etc. We were still on the mainland when we started our home search and she sent listings and visited homes on our behalf before we even arrived back on Oahu. Her level of service, professionalism and integrity were top notch!! This was very important to us as the community in Hawaii is very small and everyone knows everyone.
I worked with Solana for several years while we searched for the perfect home. Solana was so patient throughout the process, always making time for us and keeping us up to date on the market. Once we became serious about purchasing a home, Solana always did her due diligence on identifying properties for us, really going above and beyond to cater to our needs. She helped our offer get accepted on a perfect home and couldn't have been more knowledgeable about the process, always answering all of my questions throughout the entire transaction. I highly recommend working with Solana and look forward to working with her again in the future!
I met Solana while looking to rent an apartment. She actually took the time to help me and was able to find a great loan program that allowed me to BUY! I'm spending less then how much I was willing to spend on a rental. Now that I have been here a year, I have gained equity. Best decision I have ever made! Thank you Solana!
To say that working with Solana was a pleasure would be an understatement. She not only went above and beyond along the process made us feel like we were the most important task for her. This was important to me being a single mom as Solana was determined to find a safe place for my daughter to call home. She bought my daughter a new bed because she knew we were sharing a bed. She also bought us things for the house and I cannot thank her enough for all she has done. Solana will always be my go to agent and now a true friend.
This letter is to express my complete satisfaction and appreciation to Solana Grover. The recent sale of my condo went very smoothly. He went over the contract with me until I was completely satisfied. I was so stressed moving out of the county and she did EVERYTHING. She even paid for my place to be painted, as she knew I was going through a hard time. I'm forever thankful, Solana you did it!
I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Solana Grover during both the purchase and sale of my home here in Hawaii. As a Physician, I appreciate the value of hard work and dedication, and can attest that she will surpass your expectations. She is detail oriented, accommodating, trustworthy, and has years of experience behind her. If you are buying or selling your property, you want Solana on your side!
