About the Property
Penthouse Studio w/Incredible Ocean Views, Sleeps 2, 1 Bath
This is NOT some tired old Waikiki hotel room with a sliver of an ocean view.
Located AT THE TOP of the Diamond Head Beach Hotel, this penthouse unit has panoramic views to the east (Diamond Head) and to the west (Waikiki), not to mention the ocean, mountain and park views. Some have likened it to a crows nest due to the outstanding views.
Stylish and tastefully renovated -- with Travertine floors, Cherry Wood cabinets, African Ivory Granite counter tops, White Plantation Shutters, White Leather chairs, indiginous Koa wood furnishings, Kohler bath products, 40' Sony HDTV 1080p & Blu-Ray, Digital Cable, FREE Password Protected Secure Wi-Fi, and a Memory Foam King bed with 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets help to make your stay comfortable, tranquil and rejuvenating. All you have to do is open the windows and take it in!
There is no real need for a car -- as you won't want to leave this highly desirable Gold Coast neighborhood with everything you need within walking distance. The Bus stops right out front and we have UBER here as well. There is and ice machine and laundry room in the basement, plus we have bike & surf racks for rent.
The BEST reasons for selecting my Impeccable Penthouse -- AWESOME OCEAN VIEWS, QUALITY OF LIFE AND LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! All within walking distance of Waikiki, but far enough away from the excitement and buzz (cars & music) that you can sleep with the windows open and let the pacific ocean ebb and flow lull you to sleep.
Please read my guest's comments to see for yourself.
My Penthouse is a dream vacation location with an opportunity to create some of life’s most memorable moments. So what are you waiting for? Check my calendar for availability and Book It Now! I’m waiting to hear from you!
PS The lawn looks exactly as depicted in the photo. It rarely gets used so be sure to spend some time relaxing in the shade of the palms on the lawn.

On the water and across from Kapolani Park where the Ali'i (royalty) used to spend their weekends at the polo fields, this park is now home to lots of locals doing healthy activities like soccer games and evening concerts at the Waikiki Shell. The Waikiki Aquarium and Honolulu Zoo are a short 10 minute walk away and a hike around and up Diamond Head will be calling to those who want an aerobic workout!
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: I'm a Fortune 25 Intel retiree who loves the ocean. I’ve worked a lifetime to afford the Gold Coast and I am happy to share my good fortune with those who are respectful of my belongings & investment, and those who have an appreciation for what it takes to own and live in Hawaii. I have been on Oahu full time since 2003 and have been vacationing here since 1992. I know the area well and I am happy to point you in the right direction to ensure you have the best possible time while you are our guest on beautiful Oahu. My Impeccable ‘Maile’ Penthouse is at the top of the Diamond Head Beach Hotel, on the Gold Coast in the quiet, exclusive bedroom community of the Diamond Head neighborhood. But not everyone will appreciate its quiet neighborhood feel. If this is your first visit to Oahu and you are unsure of where to stay give me a call and let's discuss your dreams, and rest assured I will do my best to help you land in the right place. Mahalo and Aloha, Jan Davis 808-222-6142
Why the Owner Chose Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis, Honolulu, HI, USA:
There is no nicer place on earth than the Oahu Gold Coast with the Pacific Ocean, Kapiolani Park and Diamond Head Crater all at your doorstep. This is a neighborhood with a real community feel. People use the park for family picnics and daily exercise like Tai Chi and Yoga. There are only three hotels in this area. About half of the Diamond Head Beach Hotel residents are here only part time--having half of the units empty contributes significantly to the quiet, neighborhood feel. The weather is generally 80 degrees, the ocean is clear and inviting, the trade winds gently blow, and the local cultural & ethnic diversity is enviable. Where else can you have all of that and still be in the safety of the United States with immense military presence? PLUS Kahala Mall is really close and has everything one needs in life (Whole Foods, California Pizza Kitchen, Apple Store, Macy's and the Movie Theaters). No need to be stuck in traffic.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS Leave your cares and car at home. Take the elevator to the ocean and enjoy a soft salt-water dip in a calm clear blue ocean. Renew your commitment to health with a walk around Kapiolani Park. Or hike to the top of Diamond Head Crater for a breath taking view of Waikiki and Honolulu. Relax in the shade of our palm trees with gentle trades and the mesmerizing ebb and flow of the Pacific ocean (see my video). Walk to the Waikiki Aquarium, the Honolulu Zoo or the International Market Place in Waikiki. Savor the flavors of excellent food and fine dining in our ocean front neighborhood restaurants. AND, in my guests' words my unit is "squeaky clean, stylishly decorated, efficiently and thoughtfully laid out."
