About the Property
Condo, Studio + Futon + King-sized bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
It is one of the most beautiful places on Earth! A white sand beach called Sans Souci Beach is less than a five minute walk from the condo. With a lifeguard, and palm trees hanging over the beach, it is the perfect place to spend your days, very suitable for all ages and skills. Across the street is Kapiolani Park, with free tennis, workout stations, the Shell, Tai Chi, yoga, famous Honolulu Zoo & Waikiki Aquarium. Many great restaurants & all the fun of Waikiki are just a 15 minute walk away. Diamond Head is directly across the street! It is close enough that you can hike or run up the inside of the crater every day. In front of Diamond Head Beach Hotel is the famous Tongs surf break & great swimming areas. The unit has spectacular views of the ocean, both sunrise and sunset directions, mountains, Diamond Head & Kapiolani Park. And don't forget views of rainbows are located everywhere! The unit is cozy and clean and can sleep 3 or 4 with a very comfortable king-sized bed and a futon with new mattress and cover in April 2012. Sheets, and towels are provided. The long galley bathroom has a large mirror with lots of lights over the vanity, the white-tiled walls in the shower and tub are spotless and there is a floor to ceiling window for great ventilation. There is a small kitchen area where you can prepare simple meals with the provided microwave, electric kettle, coffee maker, coffee bean grinder, electric frying pan, rice maker, toaster, plates, cups, glasses and cutlery. The bar-sized fridge was new in April 2012. An ice machine is located near the coin operated washers and dryers. You don't need a car! The municipal transit system, called The Bus, has a stop almost directly in front of Diamond Head Beach Hotel. Route 14 or 22 will take you to Kahala Mall in minutes where you can shop at Long's Drugs, Macy's, Whole Food grocery store, and many other stores. It is hard to see the Mall from The Bus stop where you need to exit The Bus. Tell the driver where you are going and he will help you leave The Bus in front of the Post Office building. When you are ready to return to the condo, use The Bus stop in front of MacDonald's in front of the Mall. Watch for bus 14 or 22. And, if you run out of energy while walking along the beaches, malls and shops of Waikiki, hop on a bus on Kuhio Ave to bring you home! You will be dropped off almost directly at the front door of the condo!

You can climb Diamond Head crater which is directly across the street, cost is $1.00 per person. As you leave the condo turn right and enjoy a casual walk through a very upscale neighbourhood of custom homes. Continue past these houses along Diamond Head Road to Diamond Head Lighthouse, and a bit further to another very popular surf beach. If you feel up to it, you can walk all the way around the base of Diamond Head crater in just over 2 hours. Make sure you wear a hat and carry a bottle of water with you.

Tongs Surf Break is a great surf break for everyone. It contains a fast right that closes out, a slower left that dumps you in a deep channel, and even some good beginner inside waves that roll all the way into shore. You'll also find a few kayakers that sit way outside and catch the occasional big crumbling left.
The wave tends to double up a lot which can make it tricky to manage...but all in all it's great for shortboarders, longboarders, and kayakers of all skill levels.

Why the Owner Chose Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis, Honolulu, HI, USA:
This studio condo is in the ideal location for anyone wanting to stay in a quiet location on the ocean, just a short walk to the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The Bus stops in front of the Elks Club next door. You can make connections to all parts of Oahu using The Bus. Before you leave for Hawaii, do some research on www.thebus.org to see how easy it is to travel from the condo to your favorite Mall or activity on Oahu. Use the address of the condo, 2947 Kalakaua Ave, in each search.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This condo does not offer a million dollar view.....it is a TEN million dollar view! It will take your breath away! You have an unobstructed view of Diamond Head while you eat breakfast, hundreds of surfers waiting for the next wave, dozens of sailboats, submarines, cargo barges, aircraft of all sorts, Waikiki just down the street, gorgeous, soothing Dillingham Fountain and 500 acre Kapiolani Park across from the condo.
