Overview

Diamond Head Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

PANORAMIC OCEAN, DIAMOND HEAD & KAPOLANI PARK VIEWS. Its a première residential lifestyle ON THE GOLD COAST! A brief 15 minute breathtakingly beautiful walk to Waikiki’s famous beaches, shopping, dining and nightlife.

This is NOT is some tired old Waikiki hotel room with a sliver of an ocean view.

Located AT THE TOP of the Diamond Head Beach Hotel, this penthouse unit has panoramic views to the east (Diamond Head) and to the west (Waikiki), not to mention the ocean, mountain and park views. Some have likened it to a crows nest due to the outstanding views.

Stylish and tastefully renovated with new Travertine floors, Cherry Wood cabinets, African Ivory Granite counter tops, White Plantation Shutters, White Leather chairs, indiginous Koa wood furnishings, Kohler bath products, 40' Sony HDTV 1080p & Blu-Ray, Digital Cable, FREE Password Protected Secure Wi-Fi, and a Memory Foam King bed with 700 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets contribute to making your stay comfortable, tranquil and rejuvenating. All you have to do is open the windows and take it in!

There is no real need for a car as you won't want to leave this highly desirable Gold Coast neighborhood with everything you need within walking distance. The Bus stops right out front. There is and ice machine and laundry room in the basement along with bike & surf racks and limited parking--if you must have a car. Ask me for contact numbers if you need these services as reservations are required.

The BEST reasons for selecting my Impeccable Penthouse: AWESOME OCEAN VIEWS, QUALITY OF LIFE AND LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! All within walking distance of Waikiki, but far enough away from the excitement and buzz (cars & music) that you can sleep with the windows open and let the pacific ocean ebb and flow lull you to sleep.

Please read my guest's comments to see for yourself.

My Penthouse is a dream vacation location and an opportunity to create some of life’s most memorable moments. So what are you waiting for? Check my calendar for availability and send me email or pick up the phone and call. I’m waiting to hear from you!

With Aloha,

About Jan Davis

I'm a Fortune 25 Intel retiree who loves the ocean. I’ve worked a lifetime to afford the Gold Coast and I am willing to share my good fortune with those who are respectful of my belongings and investment and have an understanding of what it takes to own and live in Hawaii.

I have been on Oahu full time since 2003 and have been vacationing here since 1992. I know the area well and I am happy to point you in the right direction to ensure you have the best possible time while you are our guest on beautiful Oahu.

My Impeccable ‘Maile’ Penthouse is at the top of the Diamond Head Beach Hotel, on the Gold Coast in the quiet, exclusive bedroom community of the Diamond Head neighborhood. But not everyone will appreciate the quiet neighborhood feel. If this is your first visit to Oahu and you are unsure of where to stay give me a call and let's discuss your dreams, and rest assured I will do my best to help you land in the right place.

Mahalo and Aloha,

JanDavis@me.com

Jan Davis purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jan Davis chose Diamond Head

There is no nicer place on earth than the Oahu Gold Coast with the Pacific Ocean, Kapiolani Park and Diamond Head Crater all at your doorstep. This is a neighborhood with a real community feel. People use the park for family picnics and daily exercise like Tai Chi and Yoga. There are only three hotels in this area and about half of the Diamond Head Beach Hotel building is residential, which contributes significantly to the quiet, neighborhood feel.

The weather is generally 80 degrees, the ocean is clear and inviting, the trade winds gently blow, and the local cultural & ethnic diversity is enviable. Where else can you have all of that and still be in the safety of the United States with immense military presence?

PLUS Kahala Mall is really close by and has everything one needs in life (Whole Foods, California Pizza Kitchen, Macy's and the Movie Theaters). No need to get stuck in traffic -- which is another reason to let me help you with logistics since I have ~ 10 years of Logistics experience with Intel.

What makes this condo unique

VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS

Leave your cares and car at home. Take the elevator to the ocean and enjoy a soft salt-water dip in a calm clear blue ocean. Renew your commitment to health with a walk around Kapiolani Park. Or hike to the top of Diamond Head Crater for a breath taking view of Waikiki and Honolulu. Relax in the shade of a giant banyan tree with gentle trades and the mesmerizing ebb and flow of the Pacific ocean. Walk to the Waikiki Aquarium, the Honolulu Zoo or the International Market Place in Waikiki. Savor the flavors of excellent food and fine dining in our ocean front neighborhood restaurants.

PLUS my unit is squeaky clean, stylishly decorated, efficiently and thoughtfully laid out (I'm using guest buzz words) and it is probably equal to or better than what you have at home, which is something I like when I travel. As a friend once said to me 'Why would I want to stay where I get less than what I have at home?' Makes sense, right?

The Best

  • 5 of 5

I totally enjoyed my stay at the Maile Penthouse for a week. The amenities were excellent and view breath-taking. Saw whale spouting daily, a beautiful green Kapiolani park, relaxing fountain, and Honolulu city lights! Walked to Sans Souci beach for a swim only a block away daily. A convenience store was also just a short block away. The memory foam bed was excellent. The location of the hotel is in a quiet spot in a busy city, so I just stayed in that corner of town my entire stay. I will definitely return next year.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

I totally enjoyed my stay here for 2 weeks. The place is comfortable, nice and clean. The view is incredible as there are 4 of them. 2 beach views and 2 mountain views within the unit. You can watch the surfers all day, catch the lights of the city and mountain homes at night.

The beachfront area of the condo is beautiful and quite and has a nice grassy area with lounge chairs to relax.

Jan was super helpful and kind with recommendations for various activities, restaurants and such. She was always gracious with responding to my requests and I'm grateful for her kindness.

I would love to go back and stay here again.

Thank you Jan!

Great alternative to Waikiki hotels

  • 5 of 5

Lovely alternative for those who want to reap the benefits of staying in the Waikiki area, but want to be a bit more off the beaten path. Because Waikiki is a bit of a walk, it may be a good idea for those who want to enjoy three meals a day to fill the small refrigerator with items from Whole Foods nearby. There are two wonderful, but pricey restaurants very close by. We enjoyed walking to Bogart's several times throughout the week for outstanding food. There is a great pizza place across the street from Bogart's as well.

The bed is incredibly comfortable and the views of Diamond Head, the ocean, and at night, the city lights, is quite remarkable. Loved having coffee in the yard along the ocean every morning!

RV Fun

  • 5 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Maile Penthouse. The view is spectacular with so many contrasts of blues and greens! ...'better than anywhere else we went on Oahu. The location is excellent. As Elks Club members (next door) we enjoyed their pool, reasonable meals, sunset cocktails and evening dancing. The unit was clean and well laid out with many unexpected amenities. Parking in the area was never a problem.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Christy, I'm so glad everything worked out for you and that [finding free] parking was no issue for you. There generally is plenty of parking--unless there's an event in town. Thanks again and hope to hear from you soon! Jan

Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful Penthouse Suite!! My husband and I (see his review below) stayed here for a few nights while visiting family on Oahu. We absolutely loved staying here, as it was close enough to enjoy the vibrancy of Honolulu while not being in the center of Waikiki. The views of both Diamond Head and the beach are gorgeous, and the suite reflects the natural beauty of its surroundings. Thank you Jan!!

Great!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were fortunate enough to spend a couple of nights here, and we loved it! The view is unbeatable, and it's very cool being up on the Penthouse floor. The bed is super comfortable, and the space is used very well. All of the amenities you need are at your fingertips--love the design of the room. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a place in Waikiki.

On the water and across from Kapolani Park where the Ali'i (royalty) used to spend their weekends at the polo fields, this park is now home to lots of locals doing healthy activities like soccer games and evening concerts at the Waikiki Shell. The Waikiki Aquarium and Honolulu Zoo are a short 10 minute walk away and a hike around and up Diamond Head will be calling to those who want an aerobic workout!
