Ocean Front Penthouse
average rating of 5.0 based on 14 reviews

Wow! Unbeatable view for the price and location.

  • 5 of 5

The view from this place is unbeatable! The wall facing Diamond Head and the ocean is all glass panes that can be opened so you experience a beautiful private ocean front patio right at home. It is spectacular, especially for the price and location in Waikiki.

We paid for the garage parking which was well worth the convenience.

A few things to note:

*The check in instructions were confusing, especially if you are arriving with a car. You cannot enter the garage without a sensor, which you have to get out of your car to get and there is no easy parking out front. And to find the keys/sensor, you must figure out which lock box among dozens is yours. I felt like I was trying to decode a cryptic message during the whole process.

*The condo is clean and well kept but some of the furniture and fixtures could use some updating at some point.

Overall, we would absolutely recommend this place and stay here again.

My Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

My family has been staying at this condo for the past 10 years. Every visit was quite enjoyable. My favorite spot in the entire island is on the lanai with amazing views of the ocean, Diamond Head and Kapiolani Park. In this last trip, we spotted several turtles while sitting out there! Meggin is always so courteous and professional in booking our reservations, and Thomas is also very attentive - He went above and beyond to help us out when we arrived! We look forward to making more wonderful family memories here.

Best family trip ever! 🎉🎉🎉

We pray we can return! Loved that we could cook if we wanted too! The Costco is so close and there are many amazing restaurants nearby as well. Fabulous trip!

A slice of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was wonderful, the newer windows a delight, and there was a feeling of spaciousness with the extra room off the bedroom. Meggin was excellent to work with and emails were answered promptly. We spend 4-5 days each year in the Diamond Head area and there is no question that we would return to this delightful penthouse!

Talking about getting the most for your money. I couldn't believe that we only paid a little under $1500 for our stay at this beautiful pent house condo over looking the Pacific Ocean. That was my 4th time going to Hawaii and other than my honeymoon in 1993 this was the most amazing time I've had. We watched the friday night fireworks right from the balcony. They have everything you need to prepare meals daily and our deposit was refunding within a week of our return home.

Amazing Views from Every Angle

  • 5 of 5

This unit is a rare gem in the area. You have close views of Diamond Head, views over the surf and outrigger canoe action, views over Kapiolani Park and Waikiki Shell. There's even a peak view of the Waikiki beach area from the bedrooms. Unit is in excellent condition and nicely furnished. Lanai has a really comfortable day bed for lounging. The local concierge quickly came to repair an issue that was an 'operator error' non issue - on a holiday. Excellent service. We were attending a local wedding and the parking spot was very valuable for a lot of loading and unloading.

This unit would be doable for people with disabilities (my husband has mobility issues). If you parked in the garage you could use elevator up to the unit.
