About Betsy Jencks - I am the owner - please contact me directly with any questions

We are a kamaaiana couple who have been in the luxury hotel business for 40 years. We lived in Honolulu for 25 years. We are delighted to be back in Hawaii after ten years of working in the Caribbean and on the mainland. This is our only property and therefore we are diligent about taking care of it and are very accessible to give advice. We can immediately respond to requests because we deal directly with guests without a management company.

Betsy Jencks - I am the owner - please contact me directly with any questions purchased this condo in 2010

Why Betsy Jencks - I am the owner - please contact me directly with any questions chose Honolulu

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.

Best yet !

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

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!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Christmas 2014

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back from a month in this wonderful apartment. This was our second stay and we're booking again next year. To me, this is the mark of a great property and holiday, when, at the end you can't wait to come back again.

The owners are a pleasure to deal with and live locally so if you have any problems are easily contactable and they often email to let you know what's going on in the area. The apartment is stylish, clean, bright, well equipped and perfectly located and has ocean views from the lanai where we ate most of our meals. It's right by the beach and park and only a walk to Waikiki for drinks or shopping. The car park makes it easy if you have rented a car as it's so simple to drive in and out of without the hassle of being in the middle of town. It's a great choice.

Fantastic Rental Property on Gold Coast (Oahu)

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a month in Apr 2014. This Condo offers close proximity to Waikiki without the bustling nighttime noise of the city. Walking distance to Waikiki is only 3 miles, but a bus stop is located immediately adjacent to the property. Oahu Bus Transit is among the finest in the world. The included parking spot is nice if your prefer to drive. Walks around Diamond Head are a 4.75 mile round-trip journey and help work up a good appetite. Prefer to swim? There is laddered entrance available just a few hundred feet from the private gated ocean access. Open shower facilities await within the gated area upon return. Permanent residents (Bob & Bill) take great care of the entire complex while the owners of this rental unit are very eager to please. The Ocean front patio provides spectacular sunset views.

My apologies to those who want to rent in Jan/Feb 2015 - I'm already booked again!

Gold Coast - Fabulous stay - clean and friendly! highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this beautiful condo. It is furnished tastefully and very clean. We appreciated having a parking place as most condos on the Gold Coast do not. Also, the in-unit washer/dryer was very useful. It is located in a small building with very friendly occupants - we got to know several people at the nightly beachside gathering for wine and sunset viewing. We walked to several restaurants in Waikiki and had lunch at the Hau Tree Lanai which is just a couple buildings away. The owners are right in Honolulu and are very responsive when questions come up. We will be back next year!
