Aloha Adult Living at Its Best

  • 5 of 5

Look no further! We rented this condo for the month of December 2017. We've been staying in Hawaii for the past several decades, and this is our favorite condo of all the places we've ever stayed. It's located on the ocean in Oahu's "Gold Coast" area near Diamond Head. If you're in good physical shape, it's walking distance to downtown Waikiki -- beautiful walk along the sea in an upscale, safe neighborhood. If you'd rather ride Oahu's open-air trolley, it's on the trolley line for a few dollars per ride. If you don't have a car, Lyft and Uber are popular here and affordable (except perhaps on holidays). There is a small convenience-grocery a short walk away and/or Safeway delivers groceries directly to the condo if you open an account while staying here. We were assigned a parking space for no extra charge, which is convenient if you have a car because parking is limited. We had our mail forwarded here and there are free tennis courts a short walk away. The unit is beautiful, well-appointed, and the views are amazing. From bed you look out at Diamond Head. Otherwise your view is the sea. We whale-watched from the sofa! There is no air-conditioning but during our stay we had great cross breezes and that was never an issue. The unit was immaculate, the bed is extremely comfortable; there is cable and internet and a flat screen tv (a "smart" tv so we could use our Netflix and Amazon movie channels); the washer and dryer are full-size; sheets and towels are in excellent condition; the kitchen is a "full" kitchen; the dining table seats 4; and there is ample space for storage. Despite being in the tropics, we never saw a bug but we were careful not to leave food out, kept all food in zip bags, and immediately wiped up any crumbs (we live in the tropics and must do the same at home). No bathtub and a great shower. "Private" beach for ocean swimming. One caution, however: This is NOT a unit we would stay in if we were traveling with a toddler or active young child. The vast windows have no screens and the railings are not safe for children. The stunning window bench is open to the outdoors and the unit is many stories up. Other than that, the only "downside" to this unit is that someday you'll have to leave it. "Mahalo" to the kind and responsible owner for sharing her beautiful home with us!

The best .........

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent December/2015 in # 1009. It was the best holiday we have ever had. This apartment is at the end of a corridor so there is no foot traffic, making it quiet and private. The view from the huge windows is Diamond Head and the ocean. The best view in the world. Everything was comfortable, clean, pleasing and organized. In fact, to our surprise supplies like soap, paper towels, shampoo, toilet paper, etc, was provided. We felt pampered. There is a smart TV for evening entertainment, and always, always the incredible sound of ocean and Diamond Head. We have stayed in Colony Surf many times, and in other units. This is the best. We have booked for December 2016 and grateful, very grateful, to get it!

This unit was simply dazzling..

  • 5 of 5

We were more than pleased with this beautiful apartment. So clean and beautifully decorated, it was fully equipped and more. The location of the unit was perfect with great views of the ocean and Diamond Head. We enjoyed the October waves from our very long window and the surfers on the water every day! We have been coming to the Islands since 1978 and can truly say this stay was exceptional. Since we had already seen so much of Oahu, we were content to enjoy San Souci Beach, the park and the surrounding area. Our daughter came for a week and was quite comfortable on the air bed provided. We did enjoy some new activities with our daughter, such as segway, snorkeling and the wonderful Michel's Restaurant right there in the building. The security people were really good, especially Freddie. We loved Duane, the valet parking attendant and Larry our waiter at Michel's. We even took in 2 movies; one at the Ward Center and one at the Kahala Mall. We didn't need a car (we are very senior citizens ;) and not comfortable driving anymore in Oahu) so we used Uber! We were sad to leave, of course, and do hope we can come here to your beautiful home sometime in the future.

What a gorgeous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This spotless condo is a treasure. The broad window view of the Pacific, and the crashing waves that lulled us to sleep each night, are spectacular. The view of Diamond Head is unsurpassed anywhere else we have ever stayed. A short walk along the parkway or ocean takes you right into Waikiki; the peaceful quiet of Colony Surf is so close to the hubbub of Waikiki Beach and its shops and restaurants.

Home away from home but awesome!

  • 5 of 5

I am still daydreaming on this property. It had everything you could think of in the kitchen, laundry area, bathroom, sport equipments, etc. I highly recommended everyone to stay in this Condo. It is so clean and beautiful! The condo made our vacation such a memorable time that I want to go back and stay in this condo. Excellent location away from the heart of Waikiki shopping and restaurants, but an enjoyable walking distance. The view from the condo on Diamond Head and the Pacific Ocean are magnificent! Mahalo for giving my husband, my sister, and me the opportunity to a lavish living in this condo!

About Kristen

I am from Hawaii and though not living there now hope to return with my family one day. Having this condo keeps me close to home. We try to get to Hawaii at least once a year and it is such a joy to see my children playing on the beach.

Kristen purchased this condo in 2008

Why Kristen chose Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis

I have fond memories as a child of frolicking in the ocean at Kaimana beach right next to the Colony Surf building. Having this condo keeps me close to home.

What makes this condo unique

There is nothing like waking up and being on the beach and in the ocean in the time it takes to ride the elevator down to the lobby. Sitting on the window seat with a glass of wine watching the sunset reminds me of why Hawaii is truly one of the most beautiful spots on earth.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay very much. The unit was even better than described on the web, its location was fantastic, as was the view, and it had all the furniture and furnishings needed to give us a wonderful stay. he unit itself and the building were both well maintained and clean, and we highly recommend this very large studio for anybody vacationing in Hawaii. It was great.
