Imagine living on the flanks of one of the world’s most familiar volcanic craters, iconic not only of Oahu but of the entire Hawaiian experience. When you purchase Diamond Head real estate you no longer have to use your imagination. Life on the crater is a reality –and more than you’d ever hoped for.

Because Diamond Head is a Honolulu neighborhood and not a city, there’s no such thing as a “Diamond Head” address. That does not, however, preclude Diamond Head real estate from holding an exclusive status.

Diamond Head itself is a volcanic crater, the remnants of a single, powerful eruption that occurred 300,000 years ago. Today, the crater is a 350-acre National Park and a world-famous landmark. If you’re an avid hiker you’ll love the trail that leads up to the crater. Pack a picnic and make a day of it.

Diamond Head residents are within a stone’s throw of Kapiolani Park – the largest public park in the state of Hawaii. Here you’ll find tennis courts, an archery range, basketball courts and soccer, baseball, rugby and lacrosse fields. The Honolulu Zoo is located here as well. 

Life in the Diamond Head area provides residents with seclusion, yet easy access to all that Waikiki and downtown Honolulu have to offer. Residents typically shop at Ala Moana or head east to the Kahala Mall. Such close proximity to Waikiki also offers residents access to the best dining on the island.

Waikiki Elementary School, Washington Middle School and Kaimuki High School serve the children of Diamond Head residents. Waikiki Elementary features a strong music program, both band and orchestra.

Honolulu is also home to a number of excellent private schools that serve children from kindergarten through high school.

You’ll find the residential area known as Diamond Head clustered at the base of the crater. The most affluent part of this already high-end community is the gated neighborhood of Black Point. 

Large, architecturally tasteful homes are the name of the real estate game in Diamond Head. The higher-priced Diamond Head homes are situated on the water and, thus, provide stunning views. You’ll also find luxury condominiums in Diamond Head. 

Diamond Head houses list for between $1,600,000 and $14,950,000. Condos start at $330,000. 

Purchasing a luxury home in Diamond Head provides the epitome of refined Hawaiian living.
