Diamond Head Apartments
Set midway among Honolulu’s most desirable collection of oceanfront condominiums, Diamond Head Apartments, Ltd. is a gem among the Gold Coast’s mid-rise residences. The property looks directly onto the ocean, with only coconut trees and a low seawall between it and gentle rolling waves.
Today a preservation area, the Gold Coast is a petite enclave among the greater Diamond Head neighborhood—itself one of Hawaii’s most prestigious communities. Backdropped by the iconic Diamond Head Crater and surrounded by parkland, it is also within minutes of everything the city has to offer.
Within a block from Diamond Head Apartments, residents can take advantage of the members-only Elks Club and Outrigger Canoe Club, two boutique hotels, two fashionable beaches and three top-end restaurants. In Kapiolani Park, just across the street, amenities include tennis courts, an aquarium, a zoo and a concert amphitheater. Central Waikiki is only a 10-minute walk along the beachfront and a few minutes by car.
Built in 1957, the 14-floor Diamond Head Apartments is one of only a few of the Gold Coast’s 17 condominiums to feature a swimming pool—also heated and on the oceanfront—plus an onsite security guard and recreation area.
The building is a fee-simple co-op, with 57 units—only six units to a floor. Two face the oceanfront, two offer angled oceanfront views and two offer park and Diamond Head views. Floorplans include one-bedroom, one-bath units with 1,100 square feet and two-bedroom, one-bath units with 1,450 square feet. All units come with balconies. Parking is also available.
