About Corina Hahn

Our family purchased this unit over 25 years ago when the Marine Surf was a fully operational hotel. Since then it has converted to privately owned condos, so each unit is decorated, renovated and maintained at different levels. The lobby and communal areas were renovated a few years ago. Our parents use the property for personal use once or twice a year and otherwise enjoy renting their Hawaii home to others who appreciate the Waikiki area.

Why Corina Hahn chose Waikiki

Our parents have fond memories starting their lives together in Honolulu and enjoy the beauty and convenience of Waikiki. The Marine Surf is centrally located in the heart of Waikiki. You can easliy get around by foot or public transportation, but it includes parking if a rental car is needed. Parking is very limited in Waikiki and Honolulu, so we enjoy the added pleasure of having a dedicated parking spot when we rent a car.

A perfect location for everything.

  • 5 of 5

The unit is on the 21st floor, great view of the city. If you don’t mind city noise you can sleep with the sliding door to the balcony open as we did. There was no need for the AC. You have a full kitchen and everything you need for it is supplied. The pool on the 4th floor got sun from 10-3:30 (November). We walked and took transit everywhere. Thanks Corine

Comfortable, convenient location in Waikiki

  • 4 of 5

A comfortable and convenient location with courteous service. The unit is well-appointed and clean. The location on the 21st floor is in the heart of Waikiki and comes with a good view to the east as well as with heavy street noise. The twin beds pushed together as a king are very comfortable but do not equal a king. The television is small and channel selection limited but wi-fi is more than adequate. Four out of five stars.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. The location was central to everything and the unit was clean and very well equipped. Corina was very helpful in all our dealings. We would happily stay here again.

Perfect location. Comfy bed. Well stocked. Great rate!

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite place to stay is Marine Surf because it is located close to everything in Waikiki that's worth walking to. Few blocks to ocean. Unit is well stocked with supplies so your arrival is hassle free---no need to run out and get toiletries or pack towels. Unit has high quality towels, dishes, beach gear, etc. Comfy bed. Kitchen has all you need to cook if you want.

Parking was tight against the wall, as the next car sometimes parked too close. Definitely get a small car. Read the owner's note upon arrival as she has good advice.

Only inconvenience was the aging air conditioner that was quite loud. Ladling the excess water from the condensation pan was needed a couple times a day. Maybe adding a siphon would make the task less inconvenient.

Wi-Fi kept disconnecting but owner suggested pushing reset button and it was fine after that. Simple fix.

Would definitely stay again!

Nice place in the heart of Waikiki.

  • 4 of 5

I came for a short family visit for one week. Instructions for access were clear and helpful. The unit was more than adequate for one or two persons. The parking stall was indeed very small; if renting a car...make sure it is compact or smaller.
