The Ultimate Island Getaway: Uncovering the Hidden Gems of Diamond Head's Most Exquisite Homes

Wrapping around the spectacular Diamond Head Crater and along a good section of the Gold Coast lies one of the most luxurious neighborhoods in the world. The 600+ homes that make up the Diamond Head area are testaments to what unique architectural designs, tropical beachfront location, and opulent decor and amenities can do for a high-end residence. Exploring the scores of homes in Diamond Head will yield one Hawaiian palace after another, each one seemingly more grand than the last. For those with the assets to enjoy these homes' luxury and lifestyle, you’ll find no shortage of grandness in the Diamond Head homes on the market.

This home on Diamond Head Road commands beautiful sunsets

Located at 3222 Diamond Head Road, this Norman Lacayo-designed home and villa is one of the most stunning in all of Oahu. With six bedrooms and 5.5 baths, the 6,100+ square foot mansion is a sight to behold. And one that offers some of the most spectacular views on all the islands. Enormous stone window sills help to frame the glass that allows you to take in all of the beauty the grounds and surrounding greenery have to offer.

The grounds are expertly landscaped, the dragonfruit, papaya, coconut, and tangerines winding throughout and helping to emit the beautiful aromas you can enjoy while sitting poolside in the heated pool on the property.

Additionally, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse is included.

The beach is mere steps from the yard. The home is ideally situated close to the five-star restaurants and eclectic nightlife you’ll enjoy while living in this part of Oahu.

This home along the Gold Coast is one of the most luxurious condo offerings in Diamond Head

Unlike most other condos on the Gold Coast, the dual units that compromise 9 and 10 at 3019 Kalakaua are located in a seven-story structure that commands views of the sea. The condo was originally built as two units before a previous owner combined the two floors and joined them with an interior staircase. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom condo now takes up a collective 5,000 square feet of space, covered by masterfully designed architectural ceilings that tower over a luxurious and modernized redesign.

The condo building offers the ultimate privacy and security, granting owners easy access to nearby Kapiolani Park. You’ll find that it is only a few minutes walk to the many dining options Waikiki offers. This property is truly a luxury home for sale in Diamond Head’s most sought-after area and lists at just under 10M.

Another gem from award-winning architect Norman Lacayo is a custom-built property with plenty of outdoor living space

This residential property at 3210 Diamond Head Road is one of several in the neighborhood that acclaimed architect Norman Lacayo designed. The 3,200+ square feet of living space was designed in a style reminiscent of mid-century modern but with heavy accents of luxury design and amenities. An open floor plan that is encased with large windows and high ceilings provides a bright and vibrant living space that has been outfitted with the best quality hardwood flooring.

A spacious kitchen has been equipped with the most modern and top-of-the-line appliances. It’s a chef’s dream, with plenty of custom-built cabinet space and shelving. Roomy countertops also lend plenty of space to create favorite menu items.

If you’re a wine aficionado, you’ll feel right at home here. A professionally designed wine cellar was created underneath the house, perfect for your growing collection of vintage varieties of domestic and foreign wine. Its climate control and specially designed shelving will allow your bottles to age safely.

Though the interior is magnificent, you may spend a great deal of your time at home outdoors on the property. A large swimming pool has been a popular staple on the grounds, as well as the hot tub that accompanies it. Both amenities lend the perfect spots to take in the unmatched views of the sea, including the nightly sunsets you’ll likely never forget.

There is an additional 745 square feet of covered lanai space. This is perfectly designed for outdoor entertaining, offering friends and family an opportunity to share the beauty of the property.

You’ll also discover that the home is a short distance from everything that Waikiki has to offer. Living in this part of Oahu means that the most popular restaurants and retail shops are never more than a short drive from your property, making it quick and convenient to enjoy an afternoon out shopping or an evening socializing with friends.

Ultra-luxury real estate acquisition is a more complicated process than purchasing a typical home. The process of finding financing as well as obtaining access to these properties is best facilitated by an experienced luxury real estate agent. Many houses of this caliber will not be publicly listed to protect the privacy of the sellers. This requires a real estate agent with the proper connections and relationships to make these viewings possible.
