My husband and I have been going to Hawaii for many years and this is the first time we tried a hotel outside the main Waikiki area. We have recently found Waikiki to be too busy and noisy for us so we hoped the Diamond Head Beach Hotel would be a quieter location for us... and it was. We loved... More

We stayed in Unit 1205, there are only 13 floors to this hotel, so the views were very good. From the open entrance way we had a great view of Diamond Head and if you turned around we could see the ocean over the tops of the other buildings. From the Lanai we had views of the ocean, again over... More

We just visited the Diamond Head Beach Hotel for our tenth year. Although the name would make you think it's a hotel it is in fact a condo and has studios as well as one and two bedroom units available. We have been renting a one bedroom condo there every year. The area the property is located in is a... More

Great property, and well priced. Kyle Prestlin, the property manager, was extremely helpful and professional. I encourage anyone interested in renting on Ohau to call Kyle. He is knowledgable and was very helpful in finding suitable accommodations for my family. The property is well located and nicely appointed.

We had the pleasure of staying in this residence for an entire month! It is FANTASTICALLY located, the house is decorated extremely well, the beds were nice and soft, the property was larger than I expected yet cozy and the house was complete. Although the house is old, the refurbishing gave it a classy new feel. There are three bedrooms... More

Aloha...I would like to give a recommendation for Kyle Pestin's management at DHBH. We have stayed there for many years, the last few under Kyle's management. In making our bookings by email he has been extremely efficient and prompt in reply. While staying at the DHBH he has always been very accommodating with any of my queries or requests always...

Enjoyable, relaxing and affordable stay in Honolulu. Close proximity to Waikiki, Diamond and and Kahala. Ideal location, comfortable accommodation and ideal local beach just a short walk away. Certainly no complaints. Would certainly recommend for anyone looking for self contained, quite and out of the busy area of Waikiki.

Having previously lived in Hawaii, we returned for a vacation and family reunion. Our pre-reservation arrangements, were handled, by Kyle Pestlin. He assisted us professionally and kindly. The Diamond Head Beach condominium, was well appointed and had a marvellous location on the Waikiki Gold Coast. We stayed one great and fun filled month.

This was our seventh time we staying at this hotel, which has to say something; it's like a real home-away-from-home for us. It's a quiet neighbourhood, close to Waikiki if you need anything, but away from all the noise and bustle. The Tiara Suite is on the 6th floor, high enough to be bright and sunny, although not as spectacular... More

“01's (floor 2+) = oceanfront balcony. Otherwise floor 8+ for best views over adjacent bldgs (05's best). Avoid 105 or 205 entry gate noises”

“Pick a high floor to get the best view. Low floors are best value, though. Private gated lanai is on the ocean with access.”
