The local favorite Ohana Hale Marketplace recently opened in a new location in the heart of Waikiki on Kalakaua Avenue, after having to vacate their previous location due to a new condo building project. This popular marketplace is a unique combination of a food truck park and a two-story indoor mini-mall made up of local businesses. The laid-back vibe of Ohana Hale is great for visitors who want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki Beach and perfect for groups who want lots of different dining options at any time of the day.
Outside, there’s a food truck park that include more than 10 food trucks and pop-up restaurants which rotate every week. Customers can find a range of dining options, including Hawaiian delicacies, fried chicken, burgers, shawarma, tacos and more. Sweet cravings can be satisfied with treats like shave ice and fruit drinks. It’s a festive tropical feel outside, with picnic tables under fringed umbrellas and large palm trees that provide plenty of shade. Head inside to find sushi, pizza and the well-known breakfast spot Waffle and Berry, as well as local vendors selling jewelry and other merchandise. Right now there are about 15 vendors, and the location can hold up to 30 vendors.
The Food Truck Lot hours are 12pm – 9pm every day, and the Marketplace inside is open from 8am – 8pm every day.
We’re particularly excited about the location of the new Ohana Hale Marketplace, because it’s right across the street from the Hawaiian Monarch building, where we have several Waikiki vacation rentals! All of our Hawaiian Monarch vacation rentals have access to the building amenities which include a large pool, sundeck, hot tub, fitness center and laundry. This secure building also has a coffee shop, restaurant and convenience store on-site, as well as parking for an extra daily fee. Enjoy views of the city and Diamond Head from this bright studio with a full kitchen, or check out this cozy corner studio with wraparound skyline views. For a truly elevated experience, the two-bedroom Ocean View Penthouse delivers panoramic views of the ocean and mountains, with plenty of space for a larger group to enjoy.
The Hawaiian Monarch is in a quieter neighborhood removed from the main tourist areas, but still close enough to walk to Royal Hawaiian Center, Fort DeRussy Beach Park and the restaurants and nightlife of Waikiki. This location offers the best of both worlds – a more authentic local experience and just steps away from the excitement of Waikiki.
Explore these vacation rentals in the vibrant heart of Waikiki, and check out the Ohana Hale Marketplace for a variety of delicious food and treats!
