Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

30 Day minimum stay. Location, Location, Location. Nestled in the quiet corner of Waikiki, Diamond Head Vista is one of the most sought after and desirable condos to live. You are inspired immediately as you walk into this luxury condo high atop the 35th floor. Amazing views of Diamond Head Crater, Honolulu Zoo, Kapioloni Park and the ocean make it hard to leave, and a joy to wake up to.

This remolded unit offers 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 lanais with breathtaking views. The master bedroom is equipped with its own bathroom and private lanai, that has sliding widows that allows fresh ocean breeze to fill the room. Both bedrooms have fantastic views and the second bedroom and living room have a pull out sofa bed, so you have the option of folding the bed up to add more living space, or down if a second bedroom is required. The main lanai looks directly into the Honolulu Zoo and you can watch the animals, the surfers or the Friday afternoon sailboat races, magestic sunsets, all while you dine! The different shades of blue along the coral reef are a must see.

Diamond Head Vista is mostly owner occupied and guests must rent for at least one month. Many Waikiki condos rent on a weekly basis and it can make for a busy building with lots of traffic. Diamond Head Vista is just the opposite as it offers a quiet and intimate setting, with 24 hr security, a resident manager, gated garage with one designated parking spot and plenty of guest parking. The building is situated where there is no traffic and it makes it very easy to get in, or out of the garage.

No Smoking Allowed!

If you have a large family and need more space, check out our one bedroom condo located downstairs, on the 5th floor (see below and click on All My Rental Listings). Great for the in-laws.

The WOW Factor Explained

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled extensively through out our working careers for both work and play. Past retirement, we continue to travel as much as possible. One of our favorite destinations is the Waikiki area. First visit for me was in 1959, stationed Navy, Ford Island 60s, honeymooned 70s, and have tried to make it back to the Islands every year since.

We have witnessed the areas growth and kept on top of what and where the best locations were to stay.

In our opinion, if you are researching the Waikiki area trying to find a great place to stay, just stop looking, you will not find a better condo unit or location than this one.

You wake each morning with an un-obstructed view of Diamond Head literally at your feet along with an occasional rainbow. Later you may hear unusual sounds from the Honolulu Zoo, very refreshingly unique. Breathtaking views from the kitchen or about anywhere within the condo. The walls are decorated with uniquely selected art making us feel at home in the Islands.

A couple block walk to the beach or park. The building is located in a "not" crowded part of Waikiki and that is unique for Waikiki. A main bus stop is one block away. It happens to be the beginning of the route so always a seat available, very convenient.

If any questions came up, the owners response was immediate. Our stay was beautiful.

One re-occurring event was noted, found ourselves saying "WOW" over and over so we believe that says it all.

Take this review from a former Hawaii girl now living in NYC-one word "PARADISE!"

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost, I most sincerely have to apologize to the owner Bobby for only now coming around to write this review.

It was the month of June, and I was planning a return trip back home for a childhood friend's wedding that I was attending. I procrastinated till the last minute trying to book a place to stay at, for me and my friend who was visiting from Japan. If you are like me, and don't like the hassle of dealing with a resort or hotel, and prefer the comfort of a warm cozy home, you have found the right listing.

There is nothing more important than LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION when it comes to real estate, and believe me you will only be so blessed to be able to stay here. This was the perfect place to stay at for me and my friend. There are 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen. I stayed in the master bedroom adjacent with a closed lanai, and my friend stayed in the other room with her own lanai as well-both facing Diamond head carter. This place was so big that it give us both our own privacy at night.

Waking up to the views of Diamond Head crater, and the ocean views every single day was so comforting to our souls. The beach was a short (few blocks) walking distance away for us to get to as well. My friend who had arrived from Japan a day after me, was still in shock that I had found this listing last minute. Every morning we would drink tea and eat fresh fruits on the lanai and giving thanks to how beautiful the view was. Till this day, she still mentions this place to me whenever we speak on the phone, and how much she misses it.

Not only is this listing a gemstone, the owner Bobby, his wife, and the mother-in-law are the sweetest people on earth. After flying in on a long flight from NYC, I was greeted at the condo by Florence, the owners mother-in-law who was so sweet and so easy to deal with. She had met me in the lobby, and walked me into the apt, and giving me through instructions to where everything was.

Thank you so much Bobby for making my trip back home a memorable one. Once again, I apologize for the late review. I hope to have the opportunity to stay at your lovely home again. Your home is in my heart forever. MAHALO HUI LOA!

Amazing view and comfortable condo in a very quiet building

  • 5 of 5

I am surprised to be the first to write a review for this property. It has been a great experience for my family of 5 that relocated from NJ to Hawaii to start off in such a nice condo in a great location. The view of Diamond Head from every room is amazing. The furnishings are comfortable and everything you need is included. WiFi works well, elevators work surprisingly well given the age of the building, everyone is friendly, building is very quiet. Groceries and local eateries on Kapahulu (unless you are going to ABC Store) are a short drive. The great beaches, resort restaurants, and park all all within easy walking distance. The building and surrounding area feel very safe. Owner Bobby has been so easy to work with and very professional. 2 sofas have pull out beds so it sleeps 6 comfortably in my opinion. There is a powerful cross breeze, we never had to use the air conditioning, and the southernly facing unit doesn't get any hot evening sun. If you like having the windows open you should expect to hear the city traffic a bit and the Honolulu Zoo from across the street, but you are 35 stories up so it isn't overwhelming. The pool is clean well cared for, but is rarely used because of it's size and cold water, but the world renowned beach is just a few blocks away. Overall a very pleasant location and would recommend to those who appreciate a great view.
