If you like condo living but need a larger space, a three-bedroom unit in the Royal Iolani Diamond Head Tower might fit your needs.

Seller Michael Borger, who has worked with A&E's Flip This House crew, bought the double-unit last fall and has since made extensive improvements, including adding a third bedroom, installing stainless steel fixtures, granite countertops and Kenmore Elite appliances in the kitchen and renovating two full bathrooms.


The living area features rich koa walls and floors that stretch out from the kitchen and wet bar to a spacious lanai. Larger than the master bedroom lanai, this one is perfect for dining, entertaining or taking in panoramic views that look across Iolani School and the Ala Wai Golf Course out to Waikiki, Diamond Head and Koko Head.

At 2,550 square feet, the luxury condo is roomier than many single-family homes and the floor-to-ceiling views further open up the space.
The unit comes with two covered parking stalls. The building amenities include a pool, jacuzzi, weight room and sauna.
Money Talk: The price was recently dropped to $1,499,888, says Borger, who points out that Chinese consider 8 an auspicious number.
