We enjoyed our stay. This is the quiet end of Oahu(Diamond Head). We enjoyed our walk into town. The location is away from the Hustle and Bustle of downtown Oahu. Close to Diamond Head if you want to hike to the top. (It is a great hike). Wonderful park across the street. You have access to a small private beach... More

Nice studio condo but entry gate just outside and non-stop foot traffic and gate banging. No microwave either. Lovely seating area right on ocean and you can swim just outside. Traffic noise as well. Old prehistoric TV if they just updated TV and added microwave that would be wonderful. There are no shops nearby only convenience store which is expensive... More

This property is a great find and an excellent value! There are however numerous and different management personnel who seem to manage and rent the individual units? "IF" you rent from the right person, your unit and overall experience will be outstanding. I blindly rented a unit in this building by browsing Trip Advisor, and was so pleasantly surprised of...

I rented a first floor "hotel" room from Ohana Beach Rentals. The building is old and the rental office a bit treacherous to find but the location is excellent right in Diamond Head across from Kapiolani Park. The interior of the rental was average but not especially clean. Overall I would stay here again but I would definitely spend more... More

My family has used the realty services of Ohana Beach Rentals to rent 4 different units at the Diamond Head Beach Hotel over the past 2 years. Our Realtor, Kyle Pestlin, has been incredibly accommodating, efficient, and has bent over backwards to meet our rental needs. I can't praise his professional knowledge and personable attitude enough. It was wonderful working... More

After visiting Oahu several times in the past, we wanted a place slightly separated from the craziness of Waikiki, and the Diamond Head Beach Hotel was perfect. These are actually a bunch of condos and we rented #505 through vrbo. Although the unit does not have a direct ocean view you have access to a delightful private garden area that... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks what a place quiet and beautiful. The Pacific ocean on your door step views amazing. 10 minutes walk your in Waikiki. Sarah is your contact here. This isn't really a hotel as some units are owner occupied and others are rented out. But it's paradise.

This is a piece of old Hawaiian style with access to the historic Gold Coast. Everything is pleasant and clean. The serenity of Diamond Head and Kapiolani Park is everywhere as is water and Kaimana Beach. Linda B. in the management office is superb and a delight to work with and makes you feel welcomed.
