OCEANVIEW space usually rents for $125 / day + !3.75% tax = $142.
Please ask and I will make direct reservations using my "owners discount" directly with the hotel pool in the "SAME" building if you need to stay longer and at least stay 5 days in my unit. I want to make sure you look no further whenever to come to Waikiki again & again. I want to be your "Hawaiian Connection".
I do have 5 spaces on Airbnb. 2 Waikiki Grand Hotel and 1 Waikiki Marina and One Oceanfront 2 bedroom Home and One Private Art Gallery / Theater 2 bedroom Home.
As you enter the lobby decorated with colorful hawaiian flowers and spiritual buddha statues, you feel excited as you enter the newly installed elevators (2) which is trimmed in beautiful hawaiian wood. You are quickly transported on to the eighth floor. There you turn right and see unit #814, slowly open the door and see an unobstructed million dollar view of world famous Diamond Head. Walking out onto the lanai, you see the horizon, the best part of Waikiki beach, the many greens & blues of the ocean. Sailboats, sun worshipers, and a wonderful blue sky surround you and welcome you to your new home.
This Waikiki Treasure is a stone's throw away (less than 1/3 of a block) from the beach. NOTE: Kuhio Avenue & Ala Wai Blvd are quite a walk from the beach. Please click on "Street View" and compare with street views of other Airbnb properties.

My husband and I stayed here in Feb 2014 for 7 days with our 2 yr old son and we could not have asked for a better location . Photos are just what you get. Perfect views. Kurt emailed all appropriate information and unit was very clean and tidy when we got there. We could have used a roll away bed / trundle but that was our concern not Kurt's. Highly recommended to anyone looking for location,views and privacy.
We stayed in this place for 5 days. The location was very good, end of the Waikiki shoreline. From our balcony we could see the Diamond head, a big park as well as the ocean. The apartment was spaces enough for a couple to stay for a short period of time. The apartment provided the basic needs. Buy coffee (filter and paper towel were provided) sugar, milk before you go there. Very close by, there are an ABC store, Starback coffee and fast food restaurant. For the price, it was a very good choice. We would recommend this place.
Our stay at The Diamond was wonderful. We loved our view and access to the beach. We had all we needed and felt very comfortable. Kurt was a great host and assisted us with all our needs. We would stay here again in a minute. Mahalo Kurt!
Kurt was a fantastic host (he was quick to reply to any questions we had) and his place was amazing! We stayed for nearly 5 weeks in total and we constantly felt at home. Kurt's place is amazing value - we have stayed at many different hotels over the years and you cannot get this incredible view and cleanliness at that price anywhere else! Mahalo Kurt!
I stayed in Kurt’s Unit 814 for a month ending Dec. 27, 2013.
My experience with the accommodations was a pure delight. I enjoyed the simple, uncluttered design, which was thoughtfully done to fit the space optimally. Kurt’s artistic thoughtfulness is evident throughout. The location at the Diamond end of Waikiki was ideal for me, and the expansive view of Diamond Head, Kapiolani Park, the Honolulu Zoo and the seashore was superb.
I was so highly pleased that I am looking forward with much pleasure to another month in #814, which I have reserved for March. I can’t think of another place where I would rather stay than in Kurt’s place.
Kurt is an attentive, thoughtful and responsive host. Ease of communication with him is a much-appreciate benefit of having him as a host.
My stay was very pleasant and the right size apartment. The location was very close to beach, food, and all the necessity in every day's life was there. Few block away is the grocery store. Bus stop right across. We couldn't meet Mr. Kurt since he is a busy person. This room has a 40 inch TV! I didn't have any issues and the Apartment has 24 hrs security. Nothing to worry.
Thanks for everything.
What an amazing location with amazing views. We loved the open aspect of the studio. The studio was bigger than we'd imagined and was very well equipped. Being able to look out on Diamond Head and down to the beach was great.
Location location location! Kurt's place has it all. Walk across the road to the zoo, down to the end of the block for the beach and around the corner for shopping and tour pickups. Very close eto trolley pickups and public transport, Starbucks on the corner and ABC shop in the next building for your every need. This simply is a fabulous place to stay. The studio is small but well appointed and the view to Diamond Head and the beach from our lanai was awesome. We felt very safe and secure here as well and had no problems leaving items in our room etc while we were out. Door lock can be a bit sticky so put down all that shopping before you open it!
Make sure you try Teddy's Bigger Burgers on the bottom floor. Do not be put off by Hula's nightclub as we did not hear them at all while we were there and I know they partied up a storm most nights!
The building is undergoing renovation but this did not affect us one bit. We did not hear any noise from our room at all. The building is showing her age a little but once she is painted the Grand will be looking grand again!
Our communications with Kurt were fast and courteous and he answered our questions quickly. I guess our greatest recommendation is that we would stay here again without hesitation. 5 stars.
Buena situacion . Lugar ideal . Todo perfecto
We had an amazing stay. The place was really well located and Kurt was super helpful during the planing phase as well as our stay. Great communication and very professional.
