Diamond Head House Information:

The 4,095 square foot, three bedroom, four bathroom House was built in 1911 and is located southwest of Diamond Head State Monument in Kahala, one of Oahu‘s upscale neighborhoods. A 10 minute drive from Waikiki, Kahala is known for a variety of residential homes and provides an escape from the noise and crowds known to Waikiki.

There were 3 structures on the property. The 4,950 square foot, five bedroom, four and a half bathroom, two-story guest house fronting Diamond Head Road was built in 1944 and housed the Control Room and production offices. The single-story House included a basement and was renovated for the filming of the series. The Pool House had a Bedroom/Living Room, Bathroom and Wet Bar and was renovated into the Gym. At the time of the filming of the series, the Diamond Head House was a $10,000/month rental. The path behind the sea wall is a Public Walkway.

The Diamond Head House was listed for sale at $7,500,000 in 2006. It appears to have sold on 11/15/2006 for $6,800,000. The property is owned by Finish Line Properties, LLC, which can be traced back to Shamrock Capital Advisors. Shamrock Capital Advisors was founded by Roy E. Disney, nephew of Walt Disney.

In 2008, all 3 structures on the property and the pool were demolished to make way for a new House. The new residence is approximately 10,000 square feet with 4 bedrooms, a master suite, exercise room, home theater and detached garage.

I’ve been able to interview a couple of people who have stayed at the Diamond Head House.
