Diamond Head condo description

Diamond Head Beach Hotel is located directly on the oceanfront, along an area called the Gold Coast.
It is one of the most beautiful places on Earth! A white sand beach called Sans Souci Beach is less than a five minute walk from the condo. With a lifeguard, and palm trees hanging over the beach, it is the perfect place to spend your days, very suitable for all ages and skills. Across the street is Kapiolani Park, with free tennis, workout stations, the Shell, Tai Chi, yoga, famous Honolulu Zoo & Waikiki Aquarium. Many great restaurants & all the fun of Waikiki are just a 15 minute walk away. Diamond Head is directly across the street! It is close enough that you can hike or run up the inside of the crater every day. In front of Diamond Head Beach Hotel is the famous Tongs surf break & great swimming areas. The unit has spectacular views of the ocean, both sunrise and sunset directions, mountains, Diamond Head & Kapiolani Park. And don't forget views of rainbows are located everywhere! The unit is cozy and clean and can sleep 3 or 4 with a very comfortable king-sized bed and a futon with new mattress and cover in April 2012. Sheets, and towels are provided. The long galley bathroom has a large mirror with lots of lights over the vanity, the white-tiled walls in the shower and tub are spotless and there is a floor to ceiling window for great ventilation. There is a small kitchen area where you can prepare simple meals with the provided microwave, electric kettle, coffee maker, coffee bean grinder, electric frying pan, rice maker, toaster, plates, cups, glasses and cutlery. The bar-sized fridge, new in April 2012, has a small freezer. An ice machine is located near the coin operated washers and dryers. You don't need a car! The municipal transit system, called The Bus, has a stop almost directly in front of Diamond Head Beach Hotel. Route 14 will take you to Kahala Mall in minutes where you can shop at Long's Drugs, Macy's, Whole Food grocery store, and many other stores. If you run out of energy while walking along the beaches, malls and shops of Waikiki, hop on bus 2 on Kuhio Ave to bring you home! You will be dropped off almost directly at the front door of the condo!

                      Location

                      Tongs Surf Break is a great surf break for everyone. It contains a fast right that closes out, a slower left that dumps you in a deep channel, and even some good beginner inside waves that roll all the way into shore. You'll also find a few kayakers that sit way outside and catch the occasional big crumbling left.

                      The wave tends to double up a lot which can make it tricky to manage...but all in all it's great for shortboarders, longboarders, and kayakers of all skill levels.

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: My name is Alan Rudow. I am the owner of this amazing condo. I live in Ontario Canada. Because I am so far away, Deborah Kirk, who is a friend and real estate agent, manages the condo for me. This is her picture. She is a long time resident of Hawaii, she sells Real Estate as well as manages property & specializes in custom renovations for small spaces.

                      Why the Owner Chose Diamond Head:
                      This studio condo is in the ideal location for anyone wanting to stay in a quiet location on the ocean, just a short walk to the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The Bus stops in front of the Elks Club next door. You can make connections to all parts of Oahu using The Bus.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      This condo does not offer a million dollar view.....it is a TEN million dollar view! It will take your breath away! You have an unobstructed view of Diamond Head while you eat breakfast, hundreds of surfers waiting for the next wave, dozens of sailboats, submarines, cargo barges, aircraft of all sorts, Waikiki just down the street, gorgeous, soothing Dillingham Fountain and 500 acre Kapiolani Park across from the condo.
