honolulu: Condominiums for sale at Diamond Head, Honolulu, Hawaii - 07/27/13 04:49 PM
Have you ever dreamed of living at Diamond Head on the ocean?
There are some very attractive condominium prices in the Diamond Head neighborhood of Honolulu. For example, I checked the MLS just now, and there are 59 listings on the market from as low as $79,900. Six listings were between $100,000 and $200,000 with 4 of them at 2947 Kalakaua Avenue, an oceanfront building.

honolulu: Marco Polo Condominium at 2333 Kapiolani Blvd., Honolulu, Hawaii 96826 - 06/17/13 10:31 AM

Marco Polo Apartments - 2333 Kapiolani Blvd., Honolulu, Hawaii 96826
The 568 unit Marco Polo apartment building located on approximately 5 acres on the Ala Wai Canal on the mountain side (or "Mauka") of Waikiki, was an instant hit with local residents back in the early 1970s when it was completed. A friend of mine who worked in the tourism industry purchased a unit early on because he wanted to be near his office but not actually live in Waikiki. I think a lot of others purchased there originally for the same reason.
Now apartment owners consist of people from all … (3 comments)
