This Surf Camp is a one bedroom apartment located on the 2nd floor of a 2 story walk-up on the corner of the Ala Wai Blvd. Includes surf lessons on Waikiki Beach from certified instructors. The apt. is clean, & comes with 2 A/C's, Wi-Fi, & waves

The space

This 1 bedroom apartment is on the ground floor of a 2 story building. Located on the corner of the Ala Wai Blvd & the edge of Waikiki, getting in & out is what makes it a great location. The beach is a 10 minute walk through the park. This unit was previously rented out to long term tenants, but since has been slowly getting upgraded. The stay includes surf lessons + surfboards on Waikiki Beach. Comes with free waves if you can swim.

Guest access

Fully furnished, including free Wi-Fi and cable provided by DirecTV. Includes all extra channels including over 50+ movie channels to watch on a 42" HDTV. Coin operated dryer and washer in the back of the building. Shared smoking area outside, no smoking tobacco indoors. Bus stop across the street. Stores and restaurants within a few minutes walking.

Interaction with guests

I'm readily available on a daily basis since I stay on the other end of the property. Although I live in the building, I can't say I'll go out of my way to check on you everyday. Hopefully you can swim so you can take of advantage of the perks when you're not at home. As a property manager I tend to mind my own business since I live alongside. I can show you how to surf in the day. I can tell you about some good hikes or other beaches, but you'll have to talk to my boss if you want me to go with you.

Other things to note

PARKING: $10 a day onsite available by reservations, spaces are very limited here on the property and in all of Waikiki.
Free street parking weekdays except for 2 hours at 630am and 330pm
Paid parking is around $25 a day in the nearby lots.
Free parking on the weekends starting at 5:30pm on Friday (almost full by 5:45pm).
Please read the posted signs, I see cars towed everyday

This includes free waves. As long as you can swim, you are guaranteed to surf, or I'll refund 10% back to you in cash (conditions apply; like you're available to surf, your schedule isn't full, there are waves to surf on) W30610476-01

House Rules

No pets. No smoking tobacco indoors, seating areas available outside to smoke or hang out. House rules? You're old enough. This is not a hotel. I pay for, repair, replace, and install everything myself. As long as you respect the unit, and are friendly to your neighbors, I really don't care what you do (not including prostitution, dealing, domestics, etc.) Please take off your shoes inside, as it's customary here in Hawaii.

The whole experience staying at Vin's was great! Shortly before my arrival, Vin texted with details for accessing the apartment. When I got there, he made sure I could access the apartment right away and had left some drinks in the fridge and coffee in the cabinet. The apartment was clean and had everything I needed to cook meals and relax. WiFi was quick and reliable. Since I didn't have a car, the location made it quite easy to walk to the beach, the heart of Waikiki and grocery stores. There were also multiple bus lines to get to downtown Honolulu. Vin was also a tremendous host. He responded promptly when I had questions. I also took him up on the surfing lesson -- he's excellent and what he does and made the experience fun and memorable. I have only good things to say about Vin!

Vin was very welcoming and easy to communicate with. The house was clean and stocked with linens and kitchenware. The location is great! Take advantage of the surf lessons. It was an overall great experience.

Vin was great ! He really cares about his client, he makes sure you have everything and if you don't, he'll make sure you get everything you need. Although we didn't get the chance to take the surf lesson due to a lack of waves, he found a way to satisfy us by giving us a paddle board. The apparement is clean, has enough space and the WiFi was fast. The location is good but if you rent a car, there really isn't any place for parking but our whole experience at Vins place was great and we already miss the place !

We loved staying at Vins place, it was a relaxing and homely environment, the apartment was very clean and everything that you needed to make you feel at home and self reliant, was a really good and option as apposed to staying in a hotel, i would defiantly think of doing this again if i was to go back to Hawaii. P.s. The surf lesson was awesome !!

Vin was fantastic! My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at Vin's place in Waikiki. It was a very comfortable apartment in an amazing location, walking distance to the beach, many local restauarants, shops, etc. Vin even gave us free surf lessons which was a blast! Thank you so much Vin we can't wait to come back!

I had a conference in the Hawaii Convention Center. The apartment is perfect. It sits between the center and the Waikiki beach, with just 10 min walk to either one of them. It is a simple apartment, however, with all you need, a full kitchen, a full bath and very spacious living room. Vin is very nice and helpful. He fits a free surfing lesson to my busy schedule. I would definitely rent this place again if I go with my family next time.

Hi, I've been a property manager for years, but it's been mostly with long term tenants. I've recently been renovating the units to accommodate short term, it's been a time consuming and expensive process. Managing rentals is my second job, my day job is on Waikiki Beach teaching surfing for over 15 years. I realize the units are far from modern, and there are some details that could use a little attention. All of the rentals are totally clean, I practically do all of the cleaning myself. What separates this vacation rental from the rest? I'm the only property manager in Waikiki who's certified & licensed by the State of Hawaii to teach surfing. I have my CPR, First Aid, and Lifeguarding credentials certified by the Red Cross. I've been updating the places little by little, as I do all of the work myself. I'll do my best to make sure you're comfortable during your stay. This place is considered a plus if you want to learn how to surf! The only requirement is you must be able to swim. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Aloha!
