About the property

Renovated studios w kitchenette in private building

This is a wonderful building just two blocks from Waikiki Beach. Your lanai overlooks Honolulu's most beautiful vista - Kapiolani Park and Diamond Head Crater. This is all the benefits of 'urban' Waikiki with pleasure of nature and beautiful scenery.

Located on the Diamond Head side of Waikiki. This is the peaceful side of Waikiki where Kapiolani Park, Ala Wai Golf Course, Diamond Head Tennis Center, Honolulu Aquarium, Waikiki Shell, Kapiolani Bandstand, Honolulu Zoo, Diamond Head Crater, and the seasonal 'Sunset on the Beach' movies are your neighbors. You can enjoy your entire visit here without a rental car, since shopping, beaches, restaurants, nightlife, surf lessons, catamaran sailing, tennis, golf, walking, beachwalking, cycling, 24-Hour Fitness, snorkeling and much more are all right here. And tour buses for Pearl Harbor, Polynesian Cultural Center, Dole Cannery and more have pickups close by too.

Each room overlooks Diamond Head Crater and Kapiolani Park, a 200-acre greenway in the middle of Honolulu that King Kalakaua named after his beloved wife. Kapiolani Park is the nexus of activity each weekend with varied special events and activities. This is where the residents of the Waikiki and Diamond Head neighborhoods come to walk, jog, play in the waves and relax. Still, the vibrancy of Waikiki is at your back door.

Ten individual studio rooms are available; each unit includes kitchenette and private balcony with a stunning view of Waikiki's most treasured landmark.

Great location and accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at Makee Properties. Unit was exactly as pictured, was very clean, and had assorted toiletries available for you. The location was perfect for us - beautiful view of Diamond Head and close to the quieter end of Waikiki Beach.

Miou quickly answered any questions and requests for additional pillows, etc.

Would definitely recommend this property!

Nice &Clean Studio with excellent view of Diamond Head

  • 5 of 5

The room was very clean with great condition. A/C was worked nicely & quiet. Had a kitchen with good size refrigerator

It was perfect location for us to dine, shop, going to beach. It was so easy to go around Waikiki area.

We enjoyed a wonderful Diamondhead View from our room.

The building was well maintained & secured. There was a coin laundry be the lobby area(detergent was provided by the property-it was great help!)

The Honolulu zoo & Kapiolani park are just across the street.

The local farmer's market on Sat morning while we stayed at Condo.

Miou was so kind & helpful and very welcoming. We could get quick response from her every time we have any questions.

We would highly recommended this place to everyone who wants to have convenient peaceful place to stay in Waikiki.

Hidden Gem at Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

My husband and toddler son stayed here for 8 nights, and we were very satisfied with each night. The property is managed by Miou, and she was friendly, thoughtful and helpful when she went the extra mile to help me find a doctor when my son got sick (URI). The pictures that are posted are accurate, so the view is relaxing and the location is quiet, and the building has high security. The air conditioner was quiet and worked nicely, shower water pressure was excellent and mattress was comfortable. There are tons of places to eat within walking distance. I would highly recommend this place to friends and family.

A real hidden gem with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family for about a week until the Fourth of July, and I have nothing but positive words for the building and the staff. The security in the building is excellent, and the staff is so helpful and friendly. Miou was not only extremely accommodating with any and all of our needs, she also gave us suggestions on great sites to visit on the island. The young woman who maintained the studio rooms was also extremely friendly and helpful, showing us all of the hidden storage space in the room. The property is always immaculate, and the rooms look exactly as the pictures depict. Every room has a clear view of Diamond Head. My parents were on the fourth floor, and I was on the second floor, and in both rooms, there was a great view. The apartment is only a five minute walk from the beach, and once you walk there, you're right along the Waikiki strip of shops and cafes/restaurants. Anyone who is planning on going to Waikiki should definitely stay here!

Hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week over the Memorial Day Weekend. First , the response time regarding approval and payment was fairly quick. I had responses to my questions in about an hour. Considering the time difference (I am on east coast time) the response time was fairly quick. The property owner was extremely kind and helpful. Also, the young lady who is responsible for the maintenance of the plane was extremely helpful.

The property is immaculately maintained. The pictures give a true reflection of the apartment. There is a superb view of Diamond Head. The apartment is quiet and is close proximity to the beach and nearby attractions.

I highly recommend and will definitely stay here again when using VRBO!
