Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a kamaaiana couple who have been in the luxury hotel business for 40 years. We lived in Honolulu for 25 years. We are delighted to be back in Hawaii after ten years of working in the Caribbean and on the mainland. This is our only property and therefore we are diligent about taking care of it and are very accessible to give advice. We can immediately respond to requests because we deal directly with guests without a management company.

Why the Owner Chose Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis, Honolulu, HI, USA:
This is the very best location in all the Hawaiian Islands. It has the most consistently good weather and is conveniently located to enjoy all that Oahu has to offer. It is easy to drive in and out of, avoiding all of the Waikiki traffic. It is very much a residential area, within walking distance of 100s of restaurants and other amenities.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Just steps from the beach on one side and fabulous walking trails in the park and on the crater on the other side. Easy access to all of Honolulu. Best chance of sunny weather most of the time. Friendly, low-key building where you can mix with local people and not just tourists.
