About the property

2 private bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, fully equipped kitchen - Right on the Ocean

Compare this nightly rate to two mediocre, non-view hotel rooms in Waikiki - this is the best value on Oahu! In Hawaiian, Nui Kai means 'big sea', and that's what you get with this incredibly beautiful island style luxury 2-bedroom condo. Featuring a unique 'outdoor room', the lanai offers a large sectional, tiki bar and small dining table. All of this overlooking a 180-degree view of the ocean and reef below. Large living room/dining room with island style furniture, cable television and DVD/CD. Fully appointed kitchen with stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. The master bedroom features '40's hawaiiana décor' with king bed, cable television. The second bedroom features a Hawaii theme with queen bed, and desk. Diamond Head view to the east and to the northeast is a gorgeous city scape with beautiful Kapiolani Park, the beautiful skyline of Waikiki, Honolulu and the Ko'olau Mountains. Check out our website for more information.

About Meggin

Our love of Hawaii began 20 years ago. After years of coming to the islands we decided to buy a studio so we would have a place to be. One thing lead to another (mainly, we found a building on the ocean that we loved!)...and we ended owning several vacation rentals in our building on Waikiki's Gold Coast. We stay in our units 3-4 times a year and are constantly maintaining the decor, updating amenities, painting, and keeping them in the best condition possible for your stay!

Meggin purchased this condo in 2004

Why Meggin chose Honolulu

The reason we purchased our condos in this building had to do with location. It is perfectly situated at the edge of Waikiki in Kapiolani Park. Located on Waikiki's famous Gold Coast, the condo building sits on the water with ocean on one side and park on the other. We like the location because although Waikiki and all the hustle bustle are just a 10-15 minute walk from the condo (along the park and the ocean), we are just far enough away for it to feel less hectic, more peaceful and MUCH quieter. The views of the ocean, city skyline, moutains, park and Diamond Head Crater from the apartment have to be seen to be believed!!

What makes this condo unique

Views, Views, Views! Ocean Access steps from the building's lobby level......and the private Lanai in the sky, which is an outdoor Living Room, Dining Room and Bar all in one!!

Exceptional! 5/5 -

average rating of 5.0 based on 19 reviews

Perfect spot only a short distance away from Waikiki. Excellent relaxed setting and beach nearby

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO. We are from Australia. The customer service we received from the owner and agents was faultless. Feel comfortable knowing if you choose to stay here your holiday arrangements will be regarded as important by the owners and questions responded to promptly. It was our second time to Waikiki. We found staying at this condo to be much more relaxing but still close enough to walk to the main areas of Waikiki. There is a public bus stop almost out the front which we used and was a cheap way to get around. There's a beach San Souci only five mins walk and a convenient store their too. The check in process is easy. We found the condo clean and hygienic with all the equipment you need to maintain it throughout your stay. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks guys.

lovely condo

Just as pictured. We had a lovely stay. Great location- away from the bustle of Waikiki but close enough to walk. Great calm beach a short walk away. Loved being next to the park and running around Diamond Head in the morning.

Amazing Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in at least 5 different condos at the Diamond Head Beach Hotel and this is by far our favorite. The décor is very "islandy" and warm and cozy and the condo has absolutely everything one could ever need. The lanai was amazing! We spent a lot of time out there watching the surfers and the waves and I even took a fantastic nap on that comfy couch. We love this part of Oahu as it is a stone's throw away from Sans Souci beach which was great for our 4 year old girls. It is obvious that the owners really care about this place and want you to enjoy your stay. Mike (the owner) and his property management guy were amazing to work with. We will definitely be coming back!!

Mesmerizing Lanai

  • 5 of 5

Never looked so forward to returning to a place after a day of touring. The condo was so comfortable and inviting. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked for delicious meal preparation. The water was so clear we could see turtles and colorful fishes from the lanai. The sound and beauty of the ocean so close made it hard to believe we were near a large city.

Exceeded our expectations in every respect!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! We could hardly tear ourselves away from the stunning views in three directions. I would have been perfectly content to just relax on the large and comfortable balcony, staring at the blue Pacific. When we forced ourselves to leave this lovely, clean and spacious condo, we were delighted to find the bus stop mere steps away. We felt safe in our quiet neighborhood, but still easily able to walk to Waikiki Beach and local attractions. It was a sad day when we had to leave. Thank you again for your hospitality!

All the comforts of home, but in paradise . . .

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a relaxing Christmas holiday in this delightful condo. The location was ideal, a close walk to Waikiki, yet far enough from all the crowds to avoid the noise.

The property was well-maintained, tastefully decorated, and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable.

We hiked a lot, did some boating and enjoyed some terrific restaurants.

Not to be missed is the hike to Manoa Falls, and the nearby Lyon Arboretum.

We would happily return or recommend this property to others.

Car: recommended

Considered by some to be the best location on Oahu, the peaceful Gold Coast offers incredible restaurants, swimming, snorkeling, the beautiful Kapiolani Park, the Honolulu Zoo and the Aquarium. And all of this is only a few minutes walk to the many restaurants and outrageous shopping of Waikiki.
