Oceanfront living in Diamond Head

There are many beautiful single-family homes in Diamond Head to choose from, but if you’re not looking for the added responsibility of tending a yard or the seemingly endless other to-dos that come with a house, this two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath condo at Oceanside Manor is one to have a look at. Click here for details.

Directly on the ocean, the 1,082-square-foot, sixth-floor unit offers the quintessential picture-perfect views of the water and swaying palm trees from the living room. There are just two condos on each floor, and only 10 floors in all, affording more privacy for its residents.

The well kept apartment, which came on the market last week, comes fully furnished. It’s designed with a nod toward island-style decor. Much of the space is lined with an attractive reddish-brown marble flooring, with carpeting in the bedrooms.

Since the entire space runs from ocean to street, trade winds keep it breezy throughout the year.

While the building lacks the amenities many other condos offer, the location is key. It’s right on the beach, if you opt for sunning or surfing, and a few-minute walk into Kapiolani Park. The next time your favorite band plays at the Waikiki Shell, it’s just a 10-minute jaunt to take in the tunes.

If you’re looking to entertain the keiki, the zoo and the aquarium are both within a 20-minute walk.

The unit comes with one uncovered parking stall and extra storage.
