Owner / Manager
Just got home
We enjoyed our stay, nice for a couple. Only sleeps 2, 1 bed. Pull out couch was sleeping on 2 inches off metal springs. Not a fan at all of cushioned toilet seat. We didn’t eat there and brought our own K-cup coffee machine. All in all for how much time spent there it was nice. Didn’t communicate with owner N/A
We really liked this place but a few cons
Overall, we had a great stay, but there a several touches that could make this condo absolutely amazing. Some of the cons are for the Diamond Head Condominium itself *not room 208 and I don’t know to whom to address those problems too.
-Location is wonderful! Easy walk to beach.
-Large space in living areas
-Keycode instead of a door key is brilliant and made leaving so effortless
-Parking spot couldn’t have been better right up front by stairs and elevator
-Plenty of electrical outlets
-Large kitchen and storage areas for food
-Nice small recliner for child
-Air conditioning was very cold and nice
-WiFi signal was awesome
-TONS of room compared to any other place we’ve ever stayed
-Many things in the condo are just on the verge of breaking (particularly the vertical blinds which we were afraid to open, shower doors, toilet flusher, most balcony chairs)
-As mentioned by another reviewer, the small toilet with the fabric seat is not comfortable and had to hold down the handle to flush. Fix? Replace toilet
-Tons of light switches and dials with no labels on them so you spend a lot of time playing with them wondering what they are even functioning. Fix? Label all lights
-Lots of big and small pieces of rusty metal was left on balcony. It appeared a chairs and tables were rusting away.
With a small child in tow, I couldn’t avoid NOT cleaning it up. It took quite a bit of time and we still never went barefoot on the balcony in case tiny metal pieces remained. Fix? Get a magnetic sweeper to remove all remains
-All but 2 plastic balcony chairs were very rusty. Fix? Remove all metal chairs/tables
-Hard to get balcony door slid open and concerns of it staying locked while you were out there
-No security at the condo
-Parking spot is beside an unloading zone, but yet there was often someone parked there. Fix? Get security
-No way to bring up your items easily (i.e. large bin or luggage racks) Fix? Get some bins
-Too many smokers at the pool disregarding posted signs that say “No Smoking”. Fix? Get security
-On the 3rd floor above the pool, there’s an older senior family that live there all summer and they watch the area like hawks. We heard them verbally bully several people and young children as they watched over them swimming multiple days. Meanwhile they were smoking at the pool in the corner all morning long. Fix? Get security
Cute little condo in great location
The location was great. Loved how close we were to the beach, and nice view from the balcony. Walking distance to good restaurants. The place itself is a bit smaller then anticipated. The layout and amount of furniture had a lot to do with cramp space. Place was dusty in spots, mostly in bedroom (lampshades, headboard, fan). The light switches need to be rewired. They need to use 3-way switches instead of 2-way bc sometimes was tricky figuring out how to turn on lights in bathroom. Overall was a nice place to stay for a long weekend.
This unit was exactly as advertised. Quick walk to the beach, clean, perfect for a couple or small family. Thanks!
This condo was a great location for my husband and I. He is disabled so the parking spot almost right in front of the elevator was perfect. When getting off the elevator the condo entrance is right there. The condo is nicely decorated but the living space is small. We could barely pull our suitcase through the bedroom door. The toilet in the bathroom sits low and we did not like the cushion toilet seat. Sorry! Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay. There is a huge balcony with ocean views and we were able to walk to several nice restaurants nearby. It was only a 3 night stay. Overall a good experience
Spent 4th of July weekend here, the condo is just steps to the beach and the pool was nice for cooling off. You can walk to great restaurants and shopping from this location. The place was very clean, had ocean views and large balcony. Perfect for a couple or small family.
