  • 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."

  • I'll Be Back!

    "What a wonderful condo! My first time in Hawaii, and I couldn't have asked for a better place to experience it from. With Diamondhead Crater looming in the background, this condo has views on one side of Waikiki Beach and downtown, and on the other side, one of the most popular whale-watching spots. Some mornings I'd literally watch whales while sipping my morning tea. There is a beautiful lanai in front of the building where you can tan, take your meals, and just admire the ocean. As far as accessing the rest of the island? Not hard to do, as there are multiple bus stops almost immediately outside the building, and car rental agencies not far away. The condo is a short and enjoyable walk away from San Souci Beach, Waikiki Beach, and the Waikiki Strip. The condo itself served my needs perfectly, and was clean and tidy when I arrived. I had the pleasure of meeting the property manager while I was there, and she was nothing but helpful and friendly. We parted as friends. I can't see anyone being disappointed by this lovely property!"

  • A dazzling perch in the sky over Waikiki, in the serene Gold Coast neighborhood.

    "The Maile Penthouse can make you forget the rest of the world. Atop one of the midcentury Gold Coast towers fringing the foot of Diamond Head, the Maile feels suspended between sea and sky. The lights of Waikiki sparkle outside one glass wall, while the green flanks of Diamond Head's iconic pyramid fill the other. The apartment is efficiently laid out, with a comfortable bed facing a mirrored wall. There was a large flatscreen television, but I never felt the need to turn it on, preferring to spend evenings watching the sailing catamarans sweep past paddlers returning to the Outrigger Canoe Club next door. Likewise the air conditioning - I'm sure it works but the opportunity to sleep instead with trade winds carrying the sound of surf through the shutters was too appealing. Jan has thoughtfully provided almost everything you need, from Wi-fi to washcloths. There are dishes, utensils, a coffeemaker, a hair-dryer, iron, bath and beach towels, and cleaning supplies. The refrigerator was stocked with drinks and snacks. It's a short walk to central Waikiki's shops and restaurants, but I enjoyed many happy hours lounging on the lawn. Occasionally I'd slip into my flipflops to walk a few steps along the seawall and climb down the steel ladder into the warm surf. The Maile's building, the Diamond Head Beach Hotel, is small and quiet, with a mix of rental condos and owner-occupied units. Every resident I met was friendly, helpful and pleasant. Living in paradise makes people happy. It's not necessary to have a car on Oahu, as Uber, taxis and the excellent public bus system will get you almost anywhere on the island. The bus stops just a few steps from the Maile's building. Jan was helpful and readily accessible. She provided all the information I needed in advance of the trip and quickly answered any questions I had while I was there. I will absolutely return, the sooner the better."

  • Best value on Waikiki!!

    "Private beach and parking stall for a studio larger than it looks, all within 10 minutes walk of the frenzy of Waikiki, yet super quiet location. I live across the park from this building and booked it for my parents during their recent stay. They had a wonderful time. I would totally book it again for their next visit. Mahalo"
