DIAMOND HEAD - GOLD COAST JEWEL - OCEAN VIEWS

Diamond Head House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

This Gold Coast Jewel has been completely renovated and divided into two separate living quarters (2bd/2ba upstairs; 2bd/1ba downstairs). Downstairs currently rented long term. Our renovated home provides shellstone counters and floors, (bamboo floors upstairs), A/C, spacious master bedrooms, both upstairs and down, with king-size beds in both.

The view of Diamond Head from the large second floor patio is dramatic. Relax in the yard on a love seat swing while you enjoy the tradewinds and lush gardens. Perfectly situated, 1/2 block from the ocean, a walk of 5 minutes will take you to Diamond Head/Waikiki Beaches which stretch for miles. A walk of just a few more minutes takes you to the heart of Waikiki where the entertainment/amenities are endless.

The yard is as beautiful and updated as the home. The sizable yard has been landscaped with wonderful, colorful flowers, tropical fruit and palm trees. If you are interested in a relaxing, romantic day or evening, you can barbeque on your patio or simply enjoy the love seat swing. For those who prefer more energetic activities, you can take a leisurely bike ride through the adjacent Kapiolani park or along the ocean or hike Diamond Head to the panoramic lookout and see the backyard from the summit.

This wonderful home, its' setting and location, simply cannot be beat! That is why it is called 'The Gold Coast'. So, if you are up for truly 'the best, most comfortable and luxurious vacation', simply call for additional information and to make a reservation. Why settle for less?

About Harvey Migdal

My wife Kathy was born in Hawaii and I lived there from 1982 to 1994. We moved to Phoenix for a business opportunity but returned often to enjoy Paradise, Hawaiian style.

Harvey Migdal purchased this house in 2002

Why Harvey Migdal chose Diamond Head

As we had always loved this area, we jumped at the opportunity to buy our Coconut Ave. home in 2002. In our opinion the location is absolutely unbeatable; a short walk to beaches and the wonderful Kapiolani Park and unusually isolated for being so close to the happenings in Waikiki. Being so conveniently located, a car isn't necessary; just an added convenience.

What makes this house unique

As a family, we frequently visit. As soon as we arrive, our children and guests are anxious to change into swimwear and walk to one of the best beaches for a bit of sunshine and water activities. The trades blow the fresh, clean air; the sound of the surf is captivating. The hike up Diamond Head and the regular activities at Kapiolani Park keeps you active and holds your interest each and every day. The Park has an incredible menu of weekend activities. It's always a sad day when we depart and count the days until we can return. There is a reason why people call Hawaii 'paradise'. Our home and its' location would best sum it up!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Following is a letter sent to me by a recent guest, who spent the Christmas/New Year Holidays in our place. To preserve his privacy, he did not want to enter his e-mail address, so I have submitted his letter under owner comments. This is only one of many positive comments we have received about our place, but have not spent the time, until now, in pursuing pleased visitors to send a recommendation letter to this adjunct of our vrbo web site.January 15th, 2005Dear Harvey,I wish to express my appreciation for giving me, my wife, & mother-in-law the opportunity to stay at your lovely house. Your care and appreciation for every detail of the house was a great pleasure for all 3 of us. Waking up in the morning, taking a peak at Diamond Head from our bedroom while watching the morning news on TV, and following step out in the garden to enjoy a long breakfast in the wonderfully decorated garden with birds singing was a fantastic experience, neither of us had ever dreamt of. All felt so serene, quiet, and far away from the busy city life, yet we were only a 15 minute stroll away from exciting Waikiki, which made the whole experience that much greater. The days we wanted a day away from Waikiki we often headed east for Kahala Mall or the luxurious Kahala Mandarin Hotel, which both were only 15 minutes away on one of the bikes or 7 minutes by car. It was all, almost too good to be true!I would like to compliment you, Harvey, for being a very fair, comfortable, and easy going person to work with. We appreciate your ‘aloha spirit’.Sincerely,Martin Anderson

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to write a review to assure anyone who may be having the same hesitations I did when booking a home through VRBO. We have travelled to Hawaii many times but this was the first year I considered staying in a house instead of a hotel. So glad that we did! Communicating with the owner, Harvey, was easy and he was so very helpful. He kept me updated with the weather in Oahu, as unfortunately, the date of our arrival coincided with the big tropical storm. All I saw in the news was people loading up their grocery carts with bottled water and preparing for the storm. Harvey had lessened my worry considerably by arranging to have water and some food to be at the house when we arrived. I had offered to pay for all the groceries but he didn't accept it, saying that he would want such considerations if he were traveling. His kindness and generosity were greatly appreciated.
The house is very well-maintained, both inside and out and the owners have really put a great deal of effort in thinking about vacationers' needs and wants. It feels like a well-loved "home" and not a rental until that has seen too many years. The décor is well thought out with art work that suits the environment and we enjoyed the beautifully landscaped backyard. As for the location of the house, we felt it was close enough to the liveliness of Waikiki, yet far enough to experience the peacefulness of Hawaii. We did use our rental car daily but it only takes at most 15 minutes to walk to the busy part of Waikiki. We went out for lunches and dinners, but it was nice to have a full kitchen to make breakfasts. It is a well-stocked kitchen for those who do want to prepare meals at the house. My child enjoyed having the boogie boards to use and there was a surf board there as well. We bought beach mats but discovered the house already had some. We had our own insulated cooler bags but I noticed there were coolers at the house. I rented beach chairs/umbrella on the beach but the house has beach chairs and an umbrella as well. Like I said, it has everything you really need for a vacation. Being used to hotels, I hadn't realized how nice it is to have a washer and dryer during a holiday; they looked very new as well.
I thoroughly enjoying having the space of a house, a clean and organized kitchen, air conditioning and laundry facilities, all in a great location! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Jodie:

Thank you so much for your most thoughtful comments. It is always so fulfilling to feel that the effort we spend trying to anticipate our guests needs are both productive and appreciated. With your particular stay, we were very concerned that your late arrival on the first day of what was anticipated to be a large storm might start your trip to Paradise on a challenging note. As we have lived in Honolulu, we fully appreciate that these occasional larger storms encourage locals to stock their pantries with the necessities, sometimes looking, in the press, like there is a run on the markets. I'm glad we were able to take the precaution of at least minimally stocking our pantry for your arrival. Fortunately, the storm(s) were less severe than might have been and it sounds like your vacation was all you hoped it would be. We love staying at our home on Coconut Ave. and our greatest reward is in knowing that our guests feel the same.
Mahalo Nui Loa,
Harvey and Kathy Migdal

Tropical Diamond Head Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Harvey's house and we hope to be back again. It is an awesome vacation rental: clean, safe, well stocked, spacious, and it has beautiful tropical landscaping. It was great to have garage parking for one car and a washer dryer. The outdoor swings are relaxing and a great place to have an evening drink or read. Harvey is also very accessible though email and makes the reservations process easy. You can easily walk to great surf spots, beautiful sandy beaches, around Diamond Head or into Waikiki. It was convenient to have a boogie boards and beach chairs and beach towels at house too.

Owner's Response: Although I won't mention you by name, thank you very much for your most positive review. My wife Kathy and I spend a good deal of effort to insure that guests have the most enjoyable stay possible. We are always so pleased when our guests come away feeling that we have been successful in that undertaking. Even more so with returning guests. We do our best to provide for every reasonable need. In that regard, in addition to boogie boards and beach chairs there is one surf board and some bicycles. Although not professional grade they do get us around Diamond Head.

Mahalo Nui Loa,

Harvey & Kathy

My recent stay "my third stay" at Harvey's beautiful home, was perfect and couldn't have been any better, as were the previous two visits. Harvey is an excellent host, the home is immaculate and the location is outstanding. This beautiful home has everything you could imagine, or need. Everything has been thoroughly thought through, down to the smallest detail. I could go, on and on about the amenities and extras that are provided, but you'll see for yourself, that nothing has been overlooked. When you arrive you get the feeling of being at home, a very comfortable home and if you're like me "a repeat visitor" you get the feeling of returning home. The location is in a quiet neighborhood, with spectacular views from windows and Lanai (porch) and it’s just minutes away from everything. You can walk to several beaches in a couple minutes, the park is but a block away, shopping and dining is a short enjoyable stroll and grocery stores are a short ride away. My car stayed parked in the secure garage provided, more than it was used. This home has it all and in my opinion, can't be equaled. There is no other location, I would consider for my next visit, which will be my forth and I'm already looking forward to it. Hats off to you Harvey, for providing the perfect home for, relaxation, enjoyment, entertainment, sightseeing and even exercise, if you're into it. Thanks Harvey for everything and I hope to be enjoying your beautiful home again, very soon.

Charming property, excellent location

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the good fortune to stay at this property in April, 2013. The location is ideal-within walking distance to Waikiki but far enough away to be out of the rush. It also has easy access to Diamondhead Road and the H1 freeway to get you anywhere else on the island.The house is well maintained and has a very welcoming lanai and back yard. The owner is responsive to requests and eager to ensure that his guests have a good experience. When we arrived there was a problem with the WiFi. He had it replaced and working that same day. We were very happy there and would recommend this property and this owner without hesitation.

Truth in Advertising

  • 5 of 5
The Owner's description of the property is accurate. If anything it looks better 'in the flesh' than in the pictures. And the many 5 star reviews are honest and accurate as well - even though that may seem too good to be true. My only complaint about Harvey's house is that I'm no longer there!! Harvey makes himself available (via email or phone) for answering questions about the property and/or the location, and manages to make you feel most welcome despite the fact that he lives elsewhere. The home is lovely,comfortable, and quiet. It is an oasis - close enough to enjoy Waikiki, but far enough from the hustle to feel relaxing and peaceful. We hope to return soon!!

Gold Coast Jewel

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this true gem 15 nights and enjoyed every minutes of it, everything written in the description is accurate. This truly was a "gold coast jewel" and we hope to return. The proximity to everything made it perfect for our family (me & hubby 77 & 78 yrs old and daughter 51 yrs young).
We had a rental car but you could easily do without since public transportation is cheap and easily accessable. Harvey is a most generous and gracious host even though he's not there and has a caretaker that makes sure all is perfect!

It is always heartwarming to hear such positive comments from our guests. We actually spend a great deal of time insuring that our home has an island feel and is well stocked and maintained. Always appreciated when others feel that we have done a good job.
