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

The space

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!

We now provide airport pickup and drop off for only $28 each way.
If you decide to take taxi it is around $40 and shuttle bus is $15/person each way. Keep in mind shuttle take the longest because they also pick up other people as well.
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

While we loved the location of this place (very easy access to Waikiki beach, shopping, dining, etc.), the room itself was not entirely what we expected. The room was a bit less "new-looking" than it appears in the photos for the listing. There were a number of large dark stains on the walls and we also found at least one cockroach every night we stayed there (the last night was the worse when we found one on the bed, one on the bedside table, bathroom, and a few running along the edge of the wall--I didn't sleep a wink that night). Pros: snorkel equipment provided in room, great location, friendly hosts, comfy bed, and a good value considering the area.

Great place to stay and would stay again. Location is perfect; easy walk to the beach and restaurants/shopping. Only downside to the location is that parking is expensive and the cheaper or free spots fill up very quickly. Chin and Twu were excellent hosts. Great communication leading up to the trip and check-in/check-out went exactly as planned. Could not have asked for a better experience.

great location. It is walking distant to everywhere for convenience store, waikiki beach, restaurants, and ABC stores. The room itself is enough square footage for two people to eat sleep and shower. I mean you come here for the beach right? AC works. There is a TV. Could use an update in the bathroom but I will assume that will drive up the price. All in all great rental for a tourist. Twu allowed us to rent his car and go on tours too!

chin and twu have excellent communication skills. they answer questions promptly and in detail. twu picked me up at the airport and provided great tips of sights-seeing and restaurants. he's also a local tour guide. the bldg. is across the street from the canal, where i did my morning run. which ends at waikiki beach where i swim. it takes less than 10 minutes to walk back to the hotel. there're plenty of restaurants and places to pick up food and smoothies. i also appreciated chin letting me check out later than what's said in the contract. i'll stay there again and would recommend it to anyone. david san francisco
