Property description

“The Cottage” is a sunny, charming 'Hawaiiana-style' unit ocean view studio condominium on one of the upper floors of the Diamond Head Beach Hotel and Residences on the Gold Coast of Waikiki. Lovingly furnished by its Owner, its a 'home-away-from-home' for those guests seeking an alternative to a standard hotel room.

The Cottage sleeps 2 comfortably on its queen-size bed… & up to 4 (in a pinch) with its pullout sofa (queen size as well) and is creatively arranged with distinct seating and sleeping areas. The bathroom is fully outfitted with towels & toiletries for use during your stay.

While The Cottage is a studio apartment (and does not have a kitchen) it does have a breakfast nook with a small fridge, coffeemaker, etc ... so quick meals can be easily prepared ... but note that there is no oven or kitchen sink. It is fully stocked with glasses, dishes and utensils.

A picture window on the east provides a dramatic Diamond Head view, while the north & west-facing lanai provides both ocean, mountain and park views, and is furnished with a Pier One dining set & sectional sofa. The lanai is a terrific spot to enjoy the trade winds, watch the sunrise over Diamond Head, or rainbows over stunning Ko'olau Mountain Range:)

The Property & Neighborhood ....
The Diamond Head Beach Hotel is a boutique, secured oceanfront condo-hotel, situated in the center of the Gold Coast of Diamond Head and providing a front reception area .... oceanfront lawn and patios and on-site laundry. The Gold Coast neighborhood of Diamond Head is a 'walking' neighborhood, so no need for a car - walk or take advantage of the local public transportation. Abundant recreation, shopping, bathing, dining and entertainment options are only steps away.

Note about Parking: Metered parking spaces are abundant in front of the building, fronting and circling Kapiolani Park. Meters are 50-cts/hr. and operate from 10 am.-6pm. (free overnight).

Keywords: Ocean view, Waikiki, Renovated, Charming, Views, Studio, Diamond Head.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am a longtime visitor and part-time resident of Oahu. Business, vacation, friends keep pulling me back. Its been terrific to have this hide-a-way apartment as my 'home away from home' while visiting Honolulu, and I am happy to be able to share it with other VRBO guests!

Why the Owner Chose Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis, Honolulu, HI, USA:
Years ago I stumbled upon a VRBO listing for this charming little studio, and I became been a frequent repeat guest of the prior owner of this apartment, and loved it so much that when it came on the market, I purchased it myself in 2007!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I enjoy every hour of the day spent at 'The Cottage'. The birdsong awakens you ... enjoying a fresh-brewed cup of kona coffee on the lanai watching the sunrise over Diamond Head... then a day spent lazing at the ocean's edge, or possibly a swim at nearby San Souci beach, visiting the Honolulu Zoo or the Aquarium, just a short stroll from the condo. Later, a leisurely walk into Waikiki for shopping and meeting friends for dinner! Your day can be as active and fun-packed, or as quiet and relaxing as you choose, its the PERFECT vacation spot!
