Property description

*** NOW ACCEPTING RESERVATIONS FOR FALL 2015 ***
'The Cottage' is a sunny, charm-filled vintage 'cottage-style', private apartment residence. This is not a standard, cookie-cutter 'vacation rental' apartment, but it IS a charming unit ocean view studio condominium on one of the upper floors of the Diamond Head Beach Hotel and Residences ... remodeled and furnished as an owners' unit in a distinctly-Hawaiian Vintage decor. There are stunning views of Diamond Head, the Koo'lau Mountains and the Ocean, from the apartment and its lanai.

The Property....
The Diamond Head Beach Hotel is a boutique, secured oceanfront condo-hotel, situated in the center of the Gold Coast of Diamond Head and providing a front reception area .... oceanfront lawn and patios and on-site laundry an enhanced level of comfort and service to the guests of “The Cottage”.

As soon as you enter the gates of the Resort, catch a peek-a-boo view of the spectacular ocean surf, at the front of the Resort. A lovely slate walkways leads you past the reception area to the Resort's patio and manicured lawns, furnished with private lounge chairs, umbrellas and dining tables for the exclusive use of the Resort guests. Relax and enjoy the view or hop into the waves to swim or surf ... you can laze away a few minutes, hours or the entire day at the waters' edge, steps from the convenience of your hide-a-way studio apartment.

The Neighborhood...
The Gold Coast neighborhood of Diamond Head is a 'walking' neighborhood, so no need for a car - walk or take advantage of the local public transportation. Abundant recreation, shopping, bathing, dining and entertainment options are only steps away.

Spend your day relaxing on the lawn or splashing in the ocean. Or take a short stroll through the park, grab a quick bite at the Beachfront Cafe, just up the path from nearby San Souci Beach and the Waikiki Aquarium. Spend an afternoon at the Honolulu Zoo or enjoy the frequent festivals and fairs held in the Park across the street, or a concert at the Waikiki Bandshell. Visit the the prestigious Outrigger Canoe Club or Elks Club a few doors away (members only) or dine at one of the fine restaurants at the New Otani Hotel, just steps from the apartment!

From the moment you enter the front door of 'The Cottage' - you will be dazzled by the sweet, colorful decor and the adorable ambiance of the apartment. Ideal for a short get-a-way or a longer retreat.

Lovingly furnished and appointed with the Owners books, music, and favorite decorative items, its a 'home-away-from-home' for those guests seeking an alternative to a standard hotel room. The lanai features new wicker dining set for 2 and sectional sofa from Pier One. Outdoor storage for beach gear, luggage, etc is also provided on the lanai. Its a terrific spot to enjoy the trade winds, watch the sunrise over Diamond Head, or sunset over the ocean:)

A few nuts & bolts about the apartment...

* Parking: Metered parking spaces are abundant in front of the building, fronting Kapiolani Park. NO RESERVED PARKING AVAILABLE WITH THIS UNIT. Or, you may contact Ohana Beach rentals about availability of garage spots for rent, although the street parking is easy and inexpensive. Meters are 50-cts/hr and operate from 10 am-6pm (free overnight)

* Occupancy: We limit our parties to NO MORE THAN 2 Adults and 1 child (3 total).

* Availability: PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR FOR AVAILABILITY BEFORE INQUIRING! We are diligent about keeping our calendar updated, and only respond to inquiries for dates that are shown as 'available' on our reservation calendar.

* 'The Cottage' is a studio apartment and DOES NOT HAVE A KITCHEN. If you are seeking accommodations with cooking facilities, we recommend looking at 1BR units at Diamond Head Beach Hotel (which do have kitchens). We do have a small fridge, electric kettle, coffee pot & french press, toaster, microwave and blender ... so quick meals can be easily prepared ... but there is no oven or kitchen sink. Nonetheless, we have had many seasonal guests who have stayed for 1-4 months at a time, and they manage very well:)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am a longtime visitor and part-time resident of Oahu. Business, vacation, friends keep pulling me back. Its been terrific to have this hide-a-way apartment as my 'home away from home' while visiting Honolulu, and I am happy to be able to share it with other VRBO guests!

Why the Owner Chose Diamond Head Beach Hotel:
Years ago I stumbled upon a VRBO listing for this charming little studio, and I became been a frequent repeat guest of the prior owner of this apartment, and loved it so much that when it came on the market, I purchased it myself in 2007!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I enjoy every hour of the day spent at 'The Cottage'. The birdsong awakens you ... enjoying a fresh-brewed cup of kona coffee on the lanai watching the sunrise over Diamond Head... then a day spent lazing at the ocean's edge, or possibly a swim at nearby San Souci beach, visiting the Honolulu Zoo or the Aquarium, just a short stroll from the condo. Later, a leisurely walk into Waikiki for shopping and meeting friends for dinner! Your day can be as active and fun-packed, or as quiet and relaxing as you choose, its the PERFECT vacation spot!
