“Fantastic studio apartment, best location!!”

What a great studio apartment!!! It was so clean and had everything you could possibly need and much bigger than the photos. Everything was of high quality down to the sheets and towels!!! The location was perfect, so close to everything and only a 2 min walk to the beach. Watching the Friday night fireworks from our balcony was a treat!! Tom was so helpful and Kelly and the staff at reception were very friendly and accommodating.
I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend to others. This is a great alternative to a hotel, better value for money and a higher standard of accommodation that most hotels and so much more comfortable.
Thanks Tom.

“Wonderful stay, second time around”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This was our second stay at the Marine Surf and we loved it.
Tom's studios are clean, modern, tastefully furnished and well equipped. They provide everything you need for a comfortable stay in Waikiki. We have stayed in the Palm twice now and would return anytime. After our stay in September last year we knew if we returned to O'ahu, we would sure love to stay there again. Luck was on our side when planning the second trip and Tom showed availability. I had done excessive research last year. As we were traveling with our small daughter we figured staying in a condo would be nicer, providing us more privacy, giving the chance to cook some meals and get a reasonable rate. Tom's studios are in the heart of Waikiki, the free parking is great (also free Wifi!) and we often simply left our rental car downstairs and walked along the beach or explored Waikiki. In the evenings we sat on the lanai and enjoyed the great view while the little one slept on the comfortable sofa sleeper.
Yes, there is nightlife around and the Marine Surf building is located in a busy area of Waikiki - but there was no more music after 10 pm in the area and street noise also died down considerably. Last year we sometimes closed the lanai door and switched on the AC at night, this time in April we often had a refreshing cool night breeze and slept with the door open, weren't bothered by noise.
The building itself has been updated, the lobby area is new, they keep everything clean and secure. We always felt safe. The pool is nice and never crowded, perfect for an afternoon swim before heading to the sunset on the beach. We met so many tenants and renters, all wonderful people. Also, there is a new restaurant and bar downstairs, another plus. Lots of restaurants, Starbucks etc. close by as well.
An evening treat was to walk down the street to the beautiful Royal Hawaiian and watch their evening show, then continue on to see the sunset.
We have been all over the island, hiked, swam, shopped, dined... but in the evenings we always felt like coming home.
It's been the second time we worked with Tom and Kelly and they are simply wonderful. Believe me, I have been a travel agent before and had my share of industry people, landlords etc. to deal with. But Tom and Kelly both make every effort to make your stay a perfect one. Great!
We miss "our" studio already and will definitely return in the future!

Review: Marine Surf Waikiki is in a fabulous location, right in the center of Waikiki. Yet, it is a quiet spot, where nightlife and noise are not a bother. This condo has everything that two people need to have a marvelous vacation-even including cooler, boogie board, snorkel and beach chairs. Wifi and parking are included; the kitchen is fully equipped; and the bed is comfortable. It is most suitable for two, though it does have a fold-down bed available. Duke's Alley and shopping are very close; the beach is about 1 1/2 blocks away. We loved our time at The Palms and would totally consider using this property when we return to Hawaii!

Liked: location
Disliked: a bit cramped
