About the property

2 private bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, fully equipped kitchen - Right on the Ocean

The "best of the best" being accessible to Waikiki, but living in the highly desired "Gold Coast" residential neighborhood of Diamond Head. Compare this nightly rate to two mediocre, non-view hotel rooms in Waikiki - this is the best value on Oahu! In Hawaiian, Nui Kai means 'big sea', and that's what you get with the views of the ocean from nearly every room of this 1,000 plus square foot luxury two bedroom condo, furnished in Polynesian, Island style decor. The unique feature being the 'outdoor room', this large lanai offers a large sectional, tiki bar and small dining table. All of this overlooking a sweeping view of the ocean and reef below. Large living room/dining room with island style furniture, cable television and DVD/CD. A fully appointed kitchen with stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. The master bedroom features '40's "Hawaiiana Décor" with king-sized bed, and cable television, and desk. The second bedroom features a Hawaiian theme with queen bed, and desk. The Diamond Head view is to the east and to the northeast is a gorgeous city scape with beautiful Kapiolani Park in the foreground and the beautiful skyline of Waikiki, Honolulu and the Ko'olau Mountains in the background. The building features a large oceanfront lawn with chaises for sunning, and dining tables for an ocean-side meal. Slightly to the south of the lawn is a sea ladder that descends directly into a swimming area in the sparkling Hawaiian waters of the Pacific Ocean. Slightly to the north of the lawn is a small sand beach with access to the reef. Complete your Oahu adventure with the convenience of a parking space for your rental car in the basement of the building for only 15 dollars per day. Beach Towels, Beach Chairs and Beach Umbrella are provided to all of our guests at no charge.

About Rick Prill

Our love of Hawaii began 20 years ago. After years of coming to the islands we decided to buy a studio so we would have a place to be. One thing lead to another (mainly, we found a building on the ocean that we loved!)...and we ended owning several vacation rentals in our building on Waikiki's Gold Coast. We stay in our units 3-4 times a year and are constantly maintaining the decor, updating amenities, painting, and keeping them in the best condition possible for your stay!

Rick Prill purchased this condo in 2004

Why Rick Prill chose Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis

The reason we purchased our condos in this building had to do with location. It is perfectly situated at the edge of Waikiki in Kapiolani Park. Located on Waikiki's famous Gold Coast, the condo building sits on the water with ocean on one side and park on the other. We like the location because although Waikiki and all the hustle bustle are just a 10-15 minute walk from the condo (along the park and the ocean), we are just far enough away for it to feel less hectic, more peaceful and MUCH quieter. The views of the ocean, city skyline, moutains, park and Diamond Head Crater from the apartment have to be seen to be believed!!

What makes this condo unique

Views, Views, Views! Ocean Access steps from the building's lobby level......and the private Lanai in the sky, which is an outdoor Living Room, Dining Room and Bar all in one!!

We loved our stay in the Diamond Hotel and Residences. Our 9th floor unit had a fabulous lanai with comfortable seating, table and chairs, even a little Tiki Bar. We slept out on the lanai one night of our stay—we had a full moon, and it was quiet enough in this area of Waikiki that we could do so. The kitchen was very well equipped, the furnishings were all comfortable. This is a beautiful unit all around, and we hope to stay there again on our next trip back to Oahu.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review of our property - the lanai on the ocean is so special - glad you found the twin sheet set up for the lanai sofa cushions in order to be able to sleep outdoors with the sound of the waves and the glow of the moon over the ocean!

Wonderful condo with great location

Condo was as advertised...beautifully decorated with gorgeous views. We liked the location-close to Waikiki but on the quiet side. We enjoyed some awesome restaurants within walking distance.

Just breathtaking!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed many times in the Diamond Head Beach Resort and this was the best. Very nicely decorated. The second bedroom is not accessed through the main bedroom which is a nice plus. We would stay here again as long as it is available. Thanks for a beautiful unit.

Gorgeous views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in this lovely place. Quiet neighborhood but not far from the action of downtown Honolulu and Waikiki. Well stocked and private with easy access. Wonderful views of the ocean and diamond head. We had some initial difficulty accessing the wifi but the on site contact came up and got it working for us same day. Recommended.

Car: recommended

Considered by some to be the best location on Oahu, the peaceful Gold Coast offers incredible restaurants, swimming, snorkeling, the beautiful Kapiolani Park, the Honolulu Zoo and the Aquarium. And all of this is only a few minutes walk to the many restaurants and outrageous shopping of Waikiki.
