High Floor with Full Kitchen 'Residential' Suite. Look-out in either direction from main living room in this 1-Bedroom condo & see the surf as it breaks. Sit on the cushy sofa & gaze out at the ocean, cityscape, park, & mountains. A unique feature of the building is that each floor is only one unit wide, so getting a cooling cross breeze is accomplished by opening windows on each side of the unit.

About Mark Howard
Aloha - Thank you for viewing one of our property listings on VRBO - My name is Mark Howard, and I am the Principal Broker, President and Property Manager for Hawaii Americana Realty, headquartered in Waikiki. Originally from New Zealand I have made Waikiki my home because of the sun, surf and sand. Hopefully you will have the opportunity to stay in one of our vacation properties sometime soon. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have, and Aloha!
Why Mark Howard chose Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis
Stay on Hawaii's Gold Coast under the iconic Diamond Head Crater. Close enough to walk to Waikiki but never having to deal with the noise and hustle and bustle of staying in it. Great sunset views and a very relaxing grounds are that meets the Pacific Ocean.
What makes this Condo unique
Short walk to Waikiki, but condo is out of noisy area. Great 5 mile walking course around diamond head. Great ocean swimming directly in front of property.

Great Location and Restful Stay
A wonderful week at the Diamond Head Beach Hotel and Residence! Unit 802 was comfortable, clean and the perfect size for a couple. A King bed would have been ideal--but we still slept well in a Queen. Large bedroom closet space and six drawer dresser helped to keep things manageable. We thoroughly enjoyed the best vantage views of the ocean from both the bedroom and living room.
Check-in and check-out was convenient and trouble-free. David was courteous and tended to requests right away. We had a slight issue with hot/cold water--nothing that got in the way of the use of the bathroom or kitchen. David had the plumbers on property and later explained ownership would be looking into the situation as well.
Enjoying the mornings with coffee and simple breakfast meals with the full kitchen made our stay even more relaxing. Great location -- with walks around the beautiful Diamond Head neighborhood, Kapiolani Park and strolls along the quiet side of Waikiki Beach.
My husband loves Hawaii -- I'm a local who transplanted to Denver. We both appreciate 'coming 'home' and enjoying the island lifestyle. We're glad to have found DH Beach Hotel & Residence and will be returning soon!
Aloha Noreen -- We're happy to hear you all enjoyed your stay :-)You are always welcome back, and hopefully you get to enjoy a longer visit the next time you're in Hawaii. Mahalo for booking with us! -The Hawaii Americana Realty Team
After looking through MANY listings for our October stay in Oahu, we selected this property and we were not disappointed. The gentlemen who welcomed us were helpful, courteous and friendly. The condo is in a residential building with friendly neighbors, ocean views include Diamond Head and Waikiki views, in addition to surfers, paddleboarders, sailboats, navy ships visible from the couch! The AC Units in the space were enough to keep us cool. The trade winds were much warmer than I expected. The hot water issues mentioned in another review was not an issue for us. We have stayed in several rentals across the country and this was the best appointed space by far. My husband works remotely with his employer so WiFi was a concern and it was beyond awesome, every day. Great bed, very comfortable couch, real furniture... not typical for a lot of rentals. Beach towels, plenty of glasses, plates, abundance of cookware and utensils- the extras were a nice bonus.
There is a small convenience store/shop a short distance from the unit and there’s a great beach cafe on the water about .08 mi walk, just past the aquarium. It’s touristy but great place if you’re up for a walk for breakfast or lunch. The area is super congested but it’s to be expected due to the location. We drove all over the island and spent time with family in Hawai’i Kai. Condo is close to Waikiki without the noise- area is very quiet at night. Lanai area is lovely but there’s no sandy beach access and rock walkway on both sides are labeled private property.
My one and only issue with the space was the listing of the price. There was a $200 cleaning fee (which was refunded to us after checkout), parking (we opted for basement garage- $25 per day) , and of course taxes. I now understand this is typical for the island as it was our first time to Oahu. Something to consider for the budget when booking.
We would definitely stay here again. Thanks David and Mark for a great travel experience. Aloha🌺�
That’s Awesome Jeff, I am Happy to hear that your Hawaiian experience and time here has been absolutely Memorable. We Strive to make our Guests feel Welcomed and at home, Like Family. Aloha and Mahalo Thank You for Booking with us. -The Hawaii Americana Realty
Very nice building, great location
The host was very accommodating and met me upon my arrival. The unit was nice, mostly updated but in need of a few repairs. The shower/tub faucet was broken, miner but very difficult to get cold water. The sliding glass doors and windows desperately need replacing and the bedroom carpet needs to go! There is no parking for your car other than across the street at a pay meter and spots are at a premium, so good luck. Other than that the unit is very comfortable, quite, and you can't beat the location. I spend a lot of time on Oahu and I will definitely rent this place often. I really enjoyed it and although it does need some work, it really suited my needs well.
ALOHA Dennis O. -- We're happy to hear you all enjoyed your stay. It would be our pleasure if you choose to stay with us on your next Hawaiian adventure on Oahu. Your feedback is appreciated – Mahalo
Great location! We stayed in unit #802. It needs some TLC. See review.
This is the first time we have used "VRBO" and we will probably use it again. Not being a regular rented room we missed the normal features we have become used to. This unit #802 was in general a nice one but needs quite a bit of upgrades. Check the list.
1. Water valves in shower, bathroom sink and kitchen all came on very hot and we had to let the water flow for a long time before it was cool. The shower/bathtub valve was really in need of replacement as it was very difficult to use. Bathroom needed A/C or better ventilation as it was very hot in there.
2. We like to have a glass of wine in the evening but were not happy about having only one wine glass. Not much fun drinking wine out of a water glass.
3. Although we did not watch TV very much the unit in the living room was very small. Manager replaced it with larger TV but that one was not much bigger.
4. The shades in the living room would not come down to shield the afternoon sun. We had to leave the A/C on all day ever though we were not in the room to keep the sun from frying the whole room.
5. Thought that it was dumb having to wash dishes before we checked out.
6. Manager David was very helpful and very pleasant to talk to.
7. Private area on Ocean side of building was very nice. Great views and fun watching the lights of passing planes and boats.
Aloha Dearine D. -- Thank you to you and your group for being fantastic guests. Your feedback is appreciated Until we meet again. Mahalo - The Hawaii Americana Team
Our Kids at the Diamond Head Beach Hotel
Great place, our daughter and son in-law had never been to Hawaii, so this was a great place to introduce them to paradise
Aloha Dale E.! Thank you for being great guests -- it would be our pleasure if you choose to stay with us on your next Hawaiian adventure on Oahu. Until we meet again -- A Hui Hou, The Hawaii Americana Team
Great property. Wonderful views. Super location.
Mark is a great host as we were delayed from a missed flight. We got into the condo after 11:00 p.m. HT.
The condo is equipped with everything you need. Plenty of sheets, towels, kitchen equipment, etc.
If you need it, the parking space is great also. This condo is on the eighth floor so the views of diamond head and Waikiki are fantastic.
Everything was as promised and the pictures do tell the story.
I will stay here again when I'm Hinolulu.
Aloha Ralph - We're glad to hear that you received the attention and service we expect for our guests - thank you for staying at one of our properties, and we hope you will choose to book with us again. Your feedback is appreciated – Mahalo
The neighborhood is located at the base of Diamond Head, near the Waikiki Aquarium, across from Kapiolani Park, on the beautiful Pacific Ocean, and within walking distance of Waikiki and its attractions. Just beyond Waikiki at the base of Diamond Head is Honolulu’s “Gold Coast.” The Gold Coast is the last strip of buildings at the end of Kalakaua Ave. across from Kapiolani Park. Unlike the “hustle and bustle” of Waikiki, the Gold Coast is a little more quiet.Right out the front doors of these buildings offer great swimming, diving, and surfing breaks such as Tongg’s, Rice Bowls, Old Man’s, and several others. You’ve also got Kapiolani Park on the Mauka (mountain side) as I mentioned, which is a great spot for outdoor activities and the finish line for the Honolulu Marathon, the Tinman Triathlon, etc. Also the Diamond Head Beach Hotel is less than 2 buildings away from Private Clubs such as the Elk’s Club and the Outrigger Canoe Club.
