U N W I N D............

Begin your evenings with a cold drink in hand, relaxing in the living room as the sun settles over the Pacific, or test your cooking skills on the community grill located on the 10th floor rooftop. Finally, fall asleep to the sound of the surf and in the morning wake up, roll over and check out the tide. There are sleeping accommodations for 5-6 guests with a king bed in the master, as well as a queen and trundle bed in the 2nd bedroom.

About Helen B MacArthur

I met my husband, James MacArthur, as the first LPGA teaching golf pro at Waialae Country Club when he came for a lesson. He even carried my bag in LPGA tour events. That's when I knew he'd "made the cut"! Soon our son was old enough to join us golfing throughout the Hawaiian islands and in far away countries. We also watched our son through binoculars grow up surfing the waves at Tongs from our condo livingroom. My husband died in 2010 leaving us many years of happy memories of good times shared in our beloved Hawaii.

Helen B MacArthur purchased this condo in 1968

Why Helen B MacArthur chose Honolulu

James MacArthur purchased this property because it was everything he wanted. The private, secure building with unparalleled views in a quiet, residential neighborhood provided easy access to the Hawaii Film Studios, home of Hawaii Five-0, and a short walk to Tongs, his favorite surf spot. Time spent here with family and close friends was always special. Over the years his love and respect for Hawaii, the land, the culture and, most importantly, the people, never waned. James was accepted by the locals as honor he treasured deeply. He described this condo, this link to so much he cared about as, "The best investment I ever made."

What makes this condo unique

The condo is an oasis overlooking the cosmopolitan hub of activity known as Waikiki. A quick glide down the elevator and you're out on the street, soaking up the surrounding beauty as you walk by Kapiolani Park and the enchanting Waikiki Aquarium on your way to a myriad of possible destinations. Wherever the day takes you, the road will eventually lead back to the peaceful haven from whence you began. The view of Waikiki at night is breathtaking, as is the looming presence of Diamond Head, but the darkness of the water, broken only by the lights of passing boats, is almost mesmerizing.

This quaint and friendly Gold Coast neighborhood sits comfortably on the edge of Waikiki, where the exciting pulse of Honolulu is both near and far at the same time. They say location is everything, and this can't get much better.

Excellent place, amazing views, wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here as I am fortunate to be a family friend. This is an amazing place. Breathtaking views. Very comfortable. Quiet. Many creature comforts. A lot of security. Great location and good parking. I have stayed in many places on Oahu and this is my favorite. Owner is one of the nicest and most accommodating person you will deal with. Will return.

Living the Good Life

  • 5 of 5

The best condo location in Hawaii! It is close to Waikiki yet tucked away in a quiet and historic neighbourhood beneath Diamond Head. You can easily walk to Waikiki beach, the aquarium and the zoo. If you have a car it is easy to head along the ocean highway to the other side of Oahu to Kailua and beyond. For lazier days you can enjoy fantastic views of Diamond Head, Kapiolahi Park, downtown, and of the ocean. Everyday you can sit in the living room and watch whales, sail boats, and surfers. While at night you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. If we moved to Hawaii this is where we'd like to live. Loved the building, the condo, and the neighbours are very friendly. It has become a home away from home.

Owner's Response: Dear Lynn, I feel so fortunate to have a home in one of the best buildings at the base of Diamond Head overlooking all the ongoing activity on the ocean. So glad to share it with you and others who appreciate its uniqueness. Look forward to your return trip to your "home away from home." Aloha, HB MacArthur

View is amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Danno's. Very comfortable and lots of space and sitting looking at the ocean is so therapeutic. We saw whales, and surfers and sailboats and cruise ships. It is like a parade going on all day long. The neighborhood is very quiet and parking is very convenient if you rent a car. We ate at the condo most nights and the kitchen has everything you can imagine and a huge dining room table which was perfect for our family. Anyone would love their stay at Danno's.

Owner's Response: Hope your family was able to watch the colorful Friday night sailboat regatta from the comfort of the living room sofa. I enjoy watching the stand up paddlers and one of these days I'm tempted to try it myself. So glad you enjoyed your stay on Oahu away from your very own beautiful Kauai.

I have never seen Heaven but Danno's Hawaii Five O Condo is a preview!

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home is an understatement. We have stayed in over 30 different properties over the 20 years we have visited the beautiful Hawaiian Islands. But this warm, loving and beautiful home has stolen our hearts. I journaled each morning as I gazed at the beautiful white-capped waves of the ocean. The sound was melodic and so peaceful. We loved the roof top where we walked each day to experience the breathtaking views of Diamond Head up close and personal, downtown Waikiki, and the green belt over the pristine neighborhoods. The condo (Heaven on Earth) was equally amazing. Very quite and private. As a gourmet cook, I was amazed at all the kitchen tools and amenities. The layout is so smart as it provides a generous space for gatherings or quiet time. It is spacious and the decor is so elegant. The location is perfect with many activities in walking distance. The owner is so warm and delight to work with. I am so thankful to have found this beautiful home away from home.

Unbelievable View!

  • 5 of 5

Waking up to the sound of the ocean and seeing the blue water is breathtaking. It was really amazing to see how the colors of the water would change thru out the day. Danno's Hawaii Five-O condo is the perfect location to sit with a cold beverage and watch the sunset. No tourists standing in front of you trying to take a picture, no people bumping into you, no loud music or crowds, just the peaceful sound of the ocean waves as the sun goes down each night.

This place is the perfect location for those that want to avoid all the masses in the hotel zone by Waikiki, but still be close enough to all the action that you can walk over there if you desire.

This is a home away from home. I hope we can return for an even longer stay next time.

The moment that you open the door, you are struck by the beautiful view of the south pacific! Its hard to find the words to describe the beauty!

The condo is absolutely fabulous, with all of the amenities of home right at your fingertips! The condo is within walking distance of Waikiki Beach, restaurants, & shopping galore!

I would recommend Danno's Hawaii Five-O's condo to anyone, in a heartbeat! We hope to someday return to this fabulous location!

Thank you Helen for the wonderful opportunity!
