About Michelle

It is always a pleasure to meet new people, and to see the look on their faces when I show them this beautiful apartment for the first time.

There is a feeling like a warm hug when you walk in the door, and it makes me feel good to share this with tenants.

Michelle purchased this condo in 2005

Why Michelle chose Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis

This beautiful and quiet neighborhood in Waikiki has captured my heart.

Pualei Circle is close to everything in Waikiki, including walking distance to the world famous beaches, the Zoo, Aquarium, Waikiki Shell and downtown Waikiki.

Great restaurants and cafes are only a few short blocks away!

What makes this condo unique

I like to stay here if we don't have a tenant...(Which is very rare:)

It is fantastic to swim in the ocean with the colorful fish and turtles.

Today I saw a whale breach while I was on the beach, and this morning I woke up with the birds singing, and the fragrance of Plumeria flowers wafting through the open louvers of the bedroom.

This is an upscale, quiet neighborhood that is very safe.

There are many wonderful restaurants within walking distance, two Farmer's Markets only a few blocks away, and Kapiolani Park has Festivals almost every weekend.

Rent Surf Boards on the Beach, go for a 1 1/2 hour sail on a Catamaran, Picnic in the Park...

The Waikiki Shell is 2 blocks away, and always has great Entertainment and Concerts.

On Friday nights you can see the fireworks at sunset from the Lanai! Beautiful!!

The Bus line is only two blocks away, and is very convenient if you do not want to walk or drive.

The perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

I was on Oahu on business and was originally put in a hotel in Waikiki, and while it was okay it was just to busy for my liking. I came across this location, and to my luck it was available for the remainder of my stay. The location was just what I needed, outside of the main tourist area, but easily just a walk away from it all. Sitting at the base of Diamond Head, you don't have to listen to all the traffic or noise of the city. I stayed here for almost a month, I enjoyed waking up to the sounds of a rooster crowing and the sounds of animals from the zoo that is only a block away. Coming back to the condo at the end of my work was like coming home. The condo is nicely decorated and has a very comfy feeling. There are parks near by if you are into jogging, and the beach is only about a ten minute walk away. On Friday evening you can even watch the fireworks right front the dining room. And as if all of this wasn't enough, there is also an assigned parking spot. It was nice coming home and not having to worry about finding a place to park. Like I said, "the perfect location". I will definitely be back again.

Excellent! Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Close to everything. Loved the place- clean, cozy, comfortable, quiet (a great change from noisy Waikiki). I found everything I needed for my stay...even had a parking spot for my car!

I will definitely try to stay there again at my next trip.

This is such a warm and welcoming apartment!

I love that all of the furnishings and decorations are from all over the world, and are of high quality materials.

The bed and couch are both so comfy, and the flat screen TV's and WI-FI work great.

The best swimming beach is close walking distance, Kapiolani park has so many activities, and Waikiki is also walking distance!

I wake up to the birds singing in the plumeria trees:).

I highly recommend this beautiful property to everyone looking for a feeling of Hawaiiana in Honolulu.

Best way to do Oahu - quiet residential neighborhood and a short walk to Waikiki strip

  • 5 of 5

I congratulated myself for finding such a perfect place to stay every single day for two months. This was the best of everything. I had almost three months in Hawaii, and I was staying in hotels down on the strip and realized they were noisy, crowded, and not helping me relax. Though I wanted to be near all the great things to do, I needed somewhere where I could live a quieter more normal life. So when I took a chance on this place (my first vacation rental experience) and pulled into this amazing little neighborhood where this condo is, and heard nothing but birds singing, I was thrilled. And yet, I didn't miss out on anything Waikiki - I walked to Tiki's Bar & Grill for dinner, to the Moana Surfrider's Beach Bar, to the cute shop Sand People, to Rumfire for drinks, to the giant duty free store... you get the idea! And after I was done having fun I got to come back to my adorable Polynesian shabby chic quiet breezy apartment with a real fridge and a real stove and a big couch and no parking fees or hidden resort fees and more square feet than any hotel room I'll ever be able to afford. And the landlord clearly cares about this place and it feels like a real home. I loved every minute of being there.

We loved staying at this property. We were close to the park for our walks, the beach, the Elks Lodge, Waikiki, many restaurants. The condo itself was nicely decorated and comfortable. The views were very nice also. We hope to be able to return to this little piece of heaven.

Beautiful diamond head apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with this beautiful apartment! It is completely turnkey, so we didn't have to buy anything except our food. The furnishings and Decour are also really top-notch. It was great to wake up with the birds singing in the plumaria trees in the morning. The beach is such a close walk, and so beautiful as well. We just took the bus if needed, but most everything was a short walking distance away. We had breakfast at Bogarts, lunch at Surf and Turf tacos, and enjoyed cooking dinner at the apartment most nights, as it is very well-equipped for cooking. The flat screen TVs, and then I Soundsystem are also A bonus with this beautiful rental. I don't want to say too many nice things about it, because we want to come back next year as well!
