About this listing
This is a hotel unit in a boutique hotel located in the heart of Waikiki, and it's 5 to 7 minutes walk to the world famous Waikiki Beach. The property is close to everything in Waikiki
Aloha and welcome to the beautiful island of Oahu.
This is a private unit located in the heart of Waikiki in a boutique Hotel - Aqua Aloha Surf Hotel. The hotel is a Boutique-style, modern hotel. There are 3 different sizes of room in this Hotel and ours has the biggest in size. Most does not come with a balcony but ours does!! So even if you see a cheaper condo in this hotel by a private owner, it is because their studio is a bit smaller.
We own one of the unit and renting it out privately, so this unit does not manage by the Hotel, that's why we can offer the lowest price! It has a Queen-sized bed, TV, A/C, kitchenette, sofa, clean towels, and linens.
We can also provide a hiking tour for a small fee and you can always email us for more info about which hike you are interested in, whether a waterfall hike, crater, ridges, forest, coastlines etc. Because we love to hike!
The hotel unit is located in the heart of Waikiki facing the Ala Wai canal. It is only 2 blocks to the beach and walking distance to all the restaurants, shops and grocery store is only 1 minute walk away. Close to bus stops that can take you to all the destinations you want to go, whether you want to hike Diamond Head, snorkeling at Hanauma Bay and visit the historic Pearl Harbor.
The hotel comes with a swimming pool and a small gym. But why go to the pool while you can walk to the world famous Waikiki Beach in 5 minutes? It also has a breakfast buffet, Spa, coffee shop and a tourist desk.
Wi-Fi is available in the lobby in a comfortable sitting area for you to sit down and relax. Comes with complimentary newspaper everyday at the lobby. Our room is also equipped with wi-fi

Hosts are great, no doubt. The building itself is located in the heart of Waikiki. The apartment was smelly, which we didn't like. Also the AC was WAY to loud. The interior could use some renovating. Otherwise the appt was clean, which is a big plus.
The condo is cheap compared to Waikiki standards. So I guess the value for money is good. Don't expect a fancy hotel room - it's more like the guest bedroom at your friends' house.
The condo is very well located and practical. It suited my husband and I perfectly for 4 nights in Waikiki. Twu also suggested to take us twice on a hike and we did the Likeke Fall which is amazing. Also, Twu took breathtaking pictures of us which could not be a better souvenir to take back home! The accommodation was as described and as we (website hidden) is not working that bad, it's just that it is very hot outside!
Thanks Chin and Twu!
Nice little condo in a hotel. Very convenient location, walkable to the beach and nearby attractions. Check -in and checkout with no hassle.
This place is very nice! There's just what you need for a stay in Waikiki and it's also a good place to stay if you want to explore the rest of the island. We had a rental car and paid for a spot in the hotel parking garage/lot which worked out well. We got to explore the island and Waikiki. The location in Waikiki is ideal with the beach, shops and restaurants very close by.
We arrived late, and unable to meet Chin or Twu. The key was left exactly where they said it would be. The room was as advertised. One of the light switches stopped working on the morning we were leaving, but it was a quick fix. This was our honeymoon, and there is no way we could've been able to afford a hotel in Waikiki. This is a great budget option. With that said, parking in the garage is expensive and difficult.
Our stay here was great, exactly what we needed. Twu met us at the hotel and was very nice, he also went above and beyond and offered us a lift to the airport when we left, and offered to take us to a nearby waterfall. This room is perfect for a stay in Waikiki. It is just down the street from the main beach and main road with all the shops and restaurants. The room is just like a basic hotel room but that is perfect for a stay in Hawaii in which you plan on shopping and going to the beach most of the time. I would highly recommend this apartment and the hosts.
Host was very welcoming and the apartment fits the description. It's in a great spot, just 5 minutes from the beach.
