About Tom Doherty

We are Kim and Tom, the owners of our beautiful condo. We purchased the condo for our daughter to use while she was going to U of H Monoa and as a long-term investment for us. We live in Silicon Valley, CA, but our hearts are in Hawaii. We are good, honest owners who believe in giving a lot of value and service for our guest's dollar.

Tom Doherty purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tom Doherty chose Honolulu

Our condo is located in a very quiet, very desirable area called Diamondhead. It is perfectly situated near the beach, a five minute walk, or Waikiki, which is also a very short walk. Since we've purchased the property we've invested nearly $50,000 in remodeling, Shoji doors, modern stainless steel appliances, new closet storage systems, an upgraded bathroom, etc., etc. We want our guests -- and ourselves when we visit -- to have a wonderful experience.

What makes this condo unique

The most unique thing about our condo is its quiet location so close to the beach and Waikiki. Oh, and it has been totally remodeled and is impeccably clean and maintained.

We had the most perfect holiday at Tom and Kim's Hawaiian property. We would like this to be our go to place - no more searching on the net whenever we go to Hawaii. The bed is super comfortable, the place is super clean , it has everything you need. We enjoyed being in a residential neighborhood. The owners really care that you have a happy carefree vacation. I can't say enough good things about staying here - we loved it.

Amazing Place, Would recomend it to anyone!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay in this apartment so much, the location is fantastic its so close to a bunch of amazing coffee shops, little places to eat and convince stores. Its only a short walk to queens beach and once your there its only a few steps to Waikiki beach. The apartment is perfect for couples or someone on there own, the bed is super comfy and the kitchen was a delight to cook in. The entertainment system was fully equipped with everything you would need and the sonos sound system was perfect for playing music and movies off of. If you have kids the pull out couch is comfy and big enough for two, there are also a large number of parks just across the street. I stayed here for two months and have to say that given the opportunity i would have stayed forever.

Thank you for making my stay completely hassle free and extremely comfortable. The condo was exactly the right size for my needs and the bed super comfortable. The whole condo was very clean, light and airy. I love the sliding doors for extra privacy - very tasteful decor. I would certainly recommend this as a place to stay and I will absolutely be using it again next time I need to go to Honolulu.

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

I love this place!! It's perfectly located near the beach and near Waikiki, but in a quiet neighborhood full of friendly people. The condo feels new with great views and ocean breezes, also known as "the trades". The condo has a wonderful bed, new appliances, a cool lanai (porch), and is very cozy. Thee are great restaurants within walking distance, as well as a nice yoga studio, churches, zoo, and a beautiful park right across the street.

The owners were awesome and very attentive to every detail. They kept the place super clean and bug free -- which is super hard in Hawaii's tropical climate.

I cannot recommend this place enough. Whether you are a single girl, couple, or young family.

I can't wait to go back someday.
