This is the very best location in all the Hawaiian Islands. It has the most consistently good weather and is conveniently located to enjoy all that Oahu has to offer. It is easy to drive in and out of, avoiding all of the Waikiki traffic. It is very much a residential area, within walking distance of 100s of restaurants and other amenities.
What makes this Condo unique
Just steps from the beach on one side and fabulous walking trails in the park and on the crater on the other side. Easy access to all of Honolulu. Best chance of sunny weather most of the time. Friendly, low-key building where you can mix with local people and not just tourists.

Lovely unit in oceanside building next to Waikiki
This darling unit is located in a well maintained building at the end of Waikiki beach making it quiet yet convenient. The unit itself is well equipped and you can see and hear the ocean from its balcony. The beach is accessible from the property and from the adjacent beach. Kapiolani Park which is an expansive open space is across the street. Restaurants and shopping in Waikiki are an easy walk. The unit itself is comfortable and fully equipped with anything you might need for a perfect Hawaiian get away.
Convenient Location on Diamond Head Beach
Absolutely fabulous location and the apartment was clean and beautifully appointed. We loved being steps from the ocean as well as Kapiolani Park, where we'd walk every day, and the tennis courts were very close as well. We loved the little seaside restaurant that was about a five minute walk from the apartment that served breakfast, lunch and dinner, and they even had a live singer at night. We will definitely come back to again!
We stayed at Betsy's Castle Surf Condo for the month of August, 2016, and were Very Happy!
The unit itself is very clean and quiet. We had no noise issues whatsoever.
The full-kitchen and washer/dryer were very nice to have since we were there a month. We had the refrigerator stocked with local goodies from the Farmer's Markets.
The location was very convenient. So close to Waikiki, Diamond Head and the KCC Farmer's Market, Kahala, shopping and dining. The assigned parking spot was also a plus!
We would definitely stay here again.
Best yet !
We have just returned from Betsy Jencks Castle surf Condo. We have stayed in several condos in the Honolulu area and this Condo is by far the best.The location is perfect and the building quite , well run & friendly. The unit has all you need and having a washer-dryer and a parking space is a real plus.We ate most meals on the lanai and even saw whales while having lunch. The common oceanside area is perfect for cocktail hour and sunsets.The most fun was watching the Fairy Terns nesting in the tree outside our entry door raise their "chicks". We have already booked for 2017.
So many guests have been enchanted by the ferry terns that nest on a branch that is literally right out the front door. They have been coming back to this very branch for over 40 years! There is a continuous cycle going on from the nesting to the hatching to the downy chick learning to fly. As soon as one baby is launched, another cycle begins. Even non bird lovers cannot help but fall in love with the most darling baby fairy terns. Betsy - property owner
We have just had another wonderful month at Castle Surf. It is just such a fantastic condo for a relaxing beach holiday. The apartment is stylish and has everything you need for your stay and the location is perfect as you're away from the crowds of Waikiki but within walking distance. Betsy makes the whole rental process so easy and is on hand if you have any problems. Can't wait to go back!
My husband and I loved the condo. It is very spacious, clean and centrally located in the lush Diamond Head district. Easy walking distant to the night life of Honolulu yet quiet and secluded. We had easy access to the ocean with several added bonuses, a wonderful water fountain where newlyweds took pictures and a view of fireworks every Friday night from the bedroom window! We loved the place so much, we booked an extra month! Thanks so much Betsy! You’re the best!
