About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Suite with Full Kitchen close to Waikiki Beach

Listen to the ocean and feel the sea breezes sweep over you as you relax beneath the shadows of swaying coconut trees. Let the Makai Suite be your comfortable place to return to after the day’s adventures.

The Makai Suite is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath suite located on the 2nd floor of the Diamond Head Beach Hotel & Residences, an oceanfront building on Oahu’s Gold Coast. The interior of The Makai Suite is tastefully simple and overly comfortable. The living room has an over-sized sofa with a pull out bed , a large flat-screen TV, DVD player, Bose surround sound and track lighting that dims. There is a full kitchen with granite counter tops that include a dishwasher and everything you need to prepare a meal. The Makai Suite also comes with free Wi-Fi and cable television throughout the duration of your stay.

The Diamond Head Beach Hotel and Residences offers a peaceful, island atmosphere while being close enough to all the action. Located just minutes from Waikiki Beach along Kalakaua Avenue where you’ll find some of Honolulu’s best dining and entertainment. Ideal for those who want a quiet, low profile atmosphere, yet still want to be close to the city life. The Makai Suite will feel less like a hotel and more like your own ocean side condo.

Location! Quiet! Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, you don't end up staying in your rental in Hawaii most of the time except to rest. The location of the Makai is perfect as it's a walk away to the water, surf lessons, beach, bars, shopping and across the street from a park. It's on the second floor and you can use the elevator or stairs which made it nice (we used stairs, it was faster)The Makai is quiet and comfortable when you need it to be. Every evening we would gather to relax a VERY short walk away to the beach side of the hotel and watch the sailboats, stars, palms, waves, to feel the breezes, and enjoy. It has everything to cook a family meal, furniture is comfortable, and the owner has heavy drapes to block out light so a good night sleep can be had and privacy. We had a rental car which our son used to drive us around in but parking everywhere on Waikiki is cumbersome so many times we just ordered Lyft or Uber or walked. Honestly, we would stay here again.

Dark and dirty

  • 2 of 5

The property is in a great location close to diamond head. The building and grounds appear to be well kept. However this condo not so much. This photo is misleading as it shows a bright and cheery condo which it is NOT. It is quite dark inside and very dirty. We had to do cleaning when we arrived. There is a phone for local calls only which did not work. We did not use the TV. Everything else in the condo worked ok. Its rated a 2 bedroom however to get to the back bedroom you need to pass through the first bedroom.

Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

Only great things to say about the location of this property and its owners/contents! First off location, its a short walk (1 mile) down to the main beach/strip area. We made the trip daily/sometimes 2x but we prefer the quiet end of Diamondhead. We rented a car but for those less familiar with the island the bus and trolley system is very user friendly. The grounds were well kept and the views amazing! No, you do not have a view from your room but you are NOT in your room except to sleep... the beds are comfortable and place is clean. Communication with owners is prompt and attentive if need arises. We love to travel and have yet to experience a bad result, you get what you pay for so keep that in mind with expectations. Pay attention to the reviews and what people write. We always use HomeAway/Airnb whether we are in the USA or abroad. Again, thank you for the use of your property.

Fantastic Week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Makai Suite at the Diamonhead Beach Hotel. This is our 3rd year to this area and the suite is perfect for us and our two kids, one of the few with 2 bedrooms. The bathroom is recently remodeled and tastefully done, it connects to the 2 bedrooms, and the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you need to cook and stay. It is nice to have such a large living room to stretch out in along with the bedrooms and we could all come and go at our leisure. The room does not have a view but is a great value and we loved the lanai area for watching sunsets and having snacks - the property has a rock wall with some stair access to the water but the beach is not too far of a walk away. It's the perfect distance walk to the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but away from all the noise in the quiet neighborhood of Diamond Head. Everyone we met was very friendly. We will definitely be back! Thanks Shane!

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Very modern updates, clean, plenty of kitchen tools,towels, sleeping arrangements...all good! The only complaint we had was the distance from the sandy beach. I thought it would be right outside our back door. Nope. But we still had a great time and would rent this again. Thanks Shane
