About Sarah McClendon

We are Peter & Diane we want to welcome you to our dream vacation home in Hawaii. We have been nuts about Hawaii since our honeymoon trip to Waikiki in 1973. Buying a cozy vacation home to share with children and grandchildren was a natural. We would like to share this modern,large studio condo with others looking to experience or rediscover the charm and wonders of Waikiki and the beautiful natural beauty of Hawaii on the famous 'Gold Coast'. You can take a short stroll down to Waikiki where you can find little shops, the international market place, and a wide variety of Eateries. Famous Kalakaua Avenue is adjacent to the great Waikiki beaches. It is an ideal place for 'people watching' or going to world class stores. Then there is the rest of the Oahu to explore!

Sarah McClendon purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sarah McClendon chose Honolulu

We bought this property because of the relaxation and beauty of the 'Gold Coast' community. The large studio is equipped with all the modern conveniences that a person would desire in a vacation home. The location is 'Ocean Front' where you can walk and visit the most famous hotels, beaches, and finest shopping.

What makes this condo unique

Being directly on the ocean, you can relax where it is great for breathing the fresh ocean air, enjoying the beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean all the way to the

horizon. You can jump into the surf for a swim, go surfing, or snorkel and view the fantastic underwater life in the Pacific. This is truly the way to experience your vacation in the Hawaii!

Great location, unit needs updating

  • 1 of 5

The location was fantastic. It is close to shops, parks, the ocean and Waikiki. The unit was old and didn't look like the photos. For example, the fitted sheet on the bed was so old, the elastic didn't adhere to the mattress! The pillows were so flat, we had to borrow pillows from our family. The t.v. was big but didn't have many H.D. channels. The coffee maker was dirty, dishes/glasses were dirty, the hand soap provided was almost empty, etc. We won't stay there again.

Great location. Small room pretending to be a condo. Adequate for very short term vacation.

  • 2 of 5

Only enough room for a king size bed and a futon couch. No chair, no table, no desk. Only sink was in the bathroom. Right on the beach with a great view so if creature comfort is not important, this place will work. Almost a mile to the stores and restaurants on Waikiki so could be walked. we had one of the 10 underground parking places for about 50 units so that was great. On the 9th floor....view to Diamond Head on one side and the ocean on the other was hard to beat.

Perfect location?

  • 5 of 5

Close to Waikiki but not too close. Diamond Head Beach Hotel properties are across from Kapiolani Park which is next to Waikiki so it's a much quieter location. You can easily walk to the restaurants and shops but you have a small quiet ocean front without the crowds, and it was perfect for us. We had both city and ocean views from our private balcony. I've stayed in other units in this building and will likely return.

Diamond Head Condo

  • 4 of 5

Great spot , next to park, away from hubbub of downtown Waikiki. Nice sitting out at night looking at park and sea from little balcony having a glass of wine. Apartment small but adequate. Need to be a little creative with kitchen power supply for toaster and coffee maker.

Would stay again.

Great little studio!

  • 5 of 5

This condo could not be in a better location - you can walk in to Waikiki/Honolulu downtown, but can go to the quiet Kaimana Beach, where lots of locals go. The condo itself was clean, the bed was comfortable, and you have great views of Diamondhead and the park. I'd absolutely recommend this place!
