Our quiet one bedroom apartment is centrally located, two blocks from the beach and surrounded by restaurants and shopping. Can sleep up to 4 guests, with private bath, lanai, and fully stocked kitchen. Enjoy a private oasis in the heart of Waikiki- perfect for surfers!
This apartment is a great private and relaxing space nestled in the center of Waikiki. We chose this location due to its convenience but while maintaining an air of total calm. The unit is a back corner unit, which is the best in the building due to its privacy and air flow. It is usually very quiet, compared to the rest of Waikiki, but there may still be ambient street noise on occasion. We've set up the property to have all the essentials we love to enjoy when we're staying, such as surfboard and bikes so you can make the most of your visit. The bedroom is designed with a king bed, but we can place 2 twins in place. The living room contains a futon that 2 people can share. It's ideal for the solo traveler, a couple, 2 friends, or a small family!
There is a flat screen TV, cable, and a DVD player on the premises, we have surf movies in the apartment for your enjoyment. There is a 9' longboard available for your use, in addition to 2 bicycles for getting around town. There is a hair dryer and basic amenities (body wash, lotion) for your use, and the kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, utensils, and dinnerware. The apartment also boasts a spacious lanai (balcony) where you can enjoy the sunshine and breeze. The building has a nice BBQ grill that is shared. There is a coin-op laundry room as well, along with a book sharing area. The pool and courtyard may be used by guests any time during the open hours, but not late at night.
We are available via phone, text, or email with any questions or concerns for our guests, but will not disturb you otherwise. There is a front desk manager who is available to answer questions. As part of our sister company, Surf N Sol, we are able to offer unique packaged vacations for our guests!
Everything in Waikiki is conveniently accessible by foot, whether its the beach, great waves, fine dining, entertainment, or shopping. There's a wide variety of options to explore, or you can also chill and enjoy your private apartment. You can also take a short bike ride to the park and explore other beaches.
We offer 2 bikes for our guests to travel around Waikiki. There are also many buses that can take you to the airport, Pearl Harbor, Hanauma Bay, Ala Moana Shopping Center, or anywhere else in town. The bus is $2.50 per ride and operates frequently. We recommend taking an airport shuttle to/from Waikiki for $13 each way, or $25 RT if booked in advance. We can provide phone numbers and web links to help!
We are able to arrange surf lessons, board rental, and other activities, or point you in the right direction! We've lived and worked in Waikiki, so ask any questions you have and we'll be happy to answer them.

Very nice little space. Bikes and board were great. Kitchen was a plus. Highly recommend.
Surprisingly spacious with an amazing central location - you really can't go wrong with this apartment. The interior pool-side patio was filled with friendly locals and visitors who were always game for a chat or game of cards.
In short a Waikiki score if you want a temporarily home with more character than a hotel with anonymous air conditioned halls.
Great place in the heart of Waikiki. I spent two nights and in all honestly, I used it mostly for a place to sleep and shower, which was perfect.
Comfortable place, bit of a walk to the beach but again, in the heart of Waikiki so a lot of things walkable in all directions.
Only small issue was the parking situation, very difficult, which I expected. You don't need a car to stay here, but I needed it to travel to the second portion of my trip. I ended up parking it at one of the hotels, which all have obscene hourly rates, however "losing my ticket" allowed me to keep it in the lot for two nights for 30 bucks.
Highly recommended for Town accommodations.
We spent a week at Christine's place in the Hawaiian King and loved the hell out of it. It was as comfortable as we could have hoped for and close to Waikiki Beach. It's also a short walk to good restaurants (which the provided apartment guide helpfully points out) and a grocery store. The building itself is quiet and secure. Our sole gripe, and it's a minor one at that, is the Hawaiian King's wi-fi extends but a few feet into the apartment. We look forward to coming back!
I had never been to Hawaii before so Christine and her place were perfect! Right in the heart of the action, 2 blocks away from the most beautiful beach & fab shops.
She had thought of everything. A very useful apartment guide with all of the info necessary was emailed to me before the fact. Prompt, cheerful responses to all of my inquiries and so helpful!
There is a sweet pool, a laundry, the surfboard, the bikes! The full kitchen was great for building breakfasts as required or late night snacks.
Shockingly in this day and age, I didn't have a laptop or an iPad, but the Wifi was on offer..
I was in Hawaii for a large gathering and birthday party. Most of my travelling companions were staying at hotels, which were all within easy walking distance, as were so many eateries and of course the beach! (& Duke's on Waikiki). Ross was an unexpected delight ; )
I didn't spend a massive amount of time in the room because as I say, I was there for a large gathering of 32 people, but it was great to be able to zip back and drop stuff off at the apartment, then zip out again to meet friends etc...
I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. It was a positive experience all round.
I didn't meet Christine in person, but her communication was excellent, friendly, thoughtful, and most helpful in every case. She had thought of everything, and even organised me with time differences as I had to cross the date line to get to Hawaii, and had forgotten to factor that in to my departure date! Luckily I didn;t have to sleep on Waikiki on my last night ; )
Thanks Christine, I had a great trip and enjoyed myself immensely even though I left most of my money in Honolulu!!
Cheers and mahalo. (Kiaora from New Zealand)
Christine was extremely detailed, and made our first AirBnB experience an enjoyable one! My wife and I stayed here for 4 days at the tail end of our honeymoon. The value that you get for what you pay for was definitely worth the money.
The location was ideal!! It was a short walk from the larger resorts/ shopping, restaurants (Marukame Udon, Iyasume Masubi, Dukes, etc.), and most importantly the beach! I opted to rent a longboard from Moku Board Shop since they included GoPro Mounts for my GoPro. I would have used the surfboard provided if time/weather allowed. A nice touch was the swiveling flat panel tv that allowed you to watch from the living room area or the bed. I would fall asleep watching surf movies (she had there) to get me pumped for dawn patrol surf session the next morning. We definitely took full advantage of the 2 fixie bikes. We rode them to Diamond Head Trail Head, Rainbow Drive In, Khomotori Japanese Restaurant, and Leonard's Bakery. It was nice that Christine included U-Locks to lock the bikes.
There is a nice wrap around balcony, it was helpful when I would hang my wet board shorts and rash guard.
Christine was very pleasant, prompt, and responsive to our questions and helped us have a smooth and enjoyable trip!
the apt is really cute and it has everything that you need for. the location is great, 2 block from the beach and close to supermarket and stores. the apt is great for 2 people but also for 3/4, since the living room is separate from the bedroom.
the kitchen is full organized. I even used the surf board and it was great to save the money on rental too.
Christine is a great host and she gave me all the infos I need.
Christine was super accommodating and friendly. The place itself was a block and a half away from Waikiki, around the corner from the world-famous Marukame Udon, a stone's throw from amazing surfing and scuba, and right in the middle of the best shopping in Hawaii. The location is a huge win, and I'd highly recommend it.
When I'm back to Honolulu next time, I'm going to stay at Christine's place again.
Our stay was very enjoyable! The location of the place is absolutely amazing: just 2 blocks away from the beach and right next door to waikiki's shopping avenues. It was cozy with all the facilities a traveller will need. The only downside is that the apartment has no wifi and you need to go outside to the lobby to access the internet. Overall though we were very happy with the place :)
Although we didn't have chance to meet Christine, she arranged everything professionally so that everything went well and I had very nice vacation with my family. When we arrived there we had a little problem to get in, but Christine responded my calls right away and helped us to solve the problem quickly.
The house is same as in the pictures. It was very clean and spacious. It is in very nice location, close to main street and also Waikiki beach. Besides that, I also had to chance to try surfing thanks to Christine. In the end, me and my family had very nice time in Christine's house and Hawaii. It couldn't get better. =)
