Property description

Our Condo is very clean, well maintained and is value priced which offers you an exceptional value. The daily rental price of our unit is much less than a comparable hotel room would cost for two people (yet our condo sleeps 6 people privately and comfortably). The Ilikai Hotel is one of only two ocean front condominium hotels on Waikiki Beach. You will love our luxurious, extra clean, spacious and very well maintained two-bedroom and two-bath condominium, tastefully decorated with a flair of Hawaii.

Our well-appointed condo has every guest convenience from two large lanais, a fully-equipped kitchen, newly refurbished bathrooms, Hawaiian theme furnishings, cable TV, 2 flat screen TV's, free WiFi, exceptional cleanliness and more, all at well below what you would pay per day for a similar deluxe two bedroom/bath condo.

Our condo has a beautiful ocean view and comfortably sleeps six adults. The Ilikai is but a short walk to the famed Ala Moana Shopping Center, the Honolulu Convention Center and all other famous Waikiki Beach attractions. The Ilikai Hotel is located between the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the well known Ala Wai Yacht Harbor & Ala Moana Beach.

You can rent other two-bedroom units lacking the cleanliness you'd expect, located blocks away from the beach, or in need of renovation for less. However, no other deluxe ocean front two-bedroom/two-bathroom condo offers you the value we do considering the abundant amenities, excellent location, deluxe furnishings and upscale interior of our unit which includes a powerful up-to-date AC system, remodeled bathrooms, and new custom drapes. And, you'll be renting our personal Island home, not a commercial condo with low-end rental furnishings and accoutrements. Our condo provides beach toys, coolers, snorkeling equipment, body surf boards - everything you'll need to make your vacation complete and less expensive.

We also offer ice chests, beach chairs, umbrellas, body surfing boards, snorkling masks & fins, and children's inflatables to further enhance your days at the beach. However, we are not able to provide beach towels for our guests, but pool towels are available at the pool.

No other location puts you within such short walking distances to all the many desirable Waikiki Beach attractions as the Ilikai Hotel. From our unit, you will enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean, sailboats, Hawaiian outrigger canoes, surfers, dazzling rainbows and beautiful sunsets. The Ilikai is located on Waikiki's best and least crowded beach, where you can enjoy the sun, sand and plenty of surf. And, no other condo-hotel on Waikiki Beach offers such well-groomed beaches, a child friendly hotel swimming pool and a tidal lagoon swimming pool for our guests that is located just behind the Hotel.

Our condo also places you within a very short walk to the popular Hale Koa Hawaiian picnic ground, located on Waikiki Beach. The picnic ground provides a children's play area, charcoal grills and picnic tables for your family's memorable day at the beach! We provide ice chests and all the tools you'll need for your cook out and picnic. Groceries are but a short walk from the Ilikai. This is a great way to spend a family day!

One of the Ilikai's greatest claims to fame was from its prominence in the television series 'Hawaii Five-O'. During the opening credit of each episode, McGarrett stood on the lanai of the Ilikai's magnificent penthouse. And, the Ilikai was used prominently as a back drop for many scenes in the series that ran for 12 years. The new Hawaii Five-O Series also places McGarrett atop the Ilikai and the same penthouse lanai!

Public transportation on Oahu is outstanding and a moderately priced bus pass from an ABC Store will take you and your family to every attraction on Oahu. However, if a rental car is your choice, then there are two nationally known car rental agencies across the street in Dicovery Bay. Parking or Valet is available at the hotel for a fee.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are Gloria and Steve Henderson. Gloria is a retired high school teacher and Steve retired from an auto parts manufacturer in the Denver area after a 30-year career in marketing and sales. We have one daughter and three beautiful granddaughters ages 9, 13 and 15 who love Hawaii as much as we do! We live in Colorado Springs when we are not in Hawaii. Steve is a WWII historian and a member of "Sons and Daughters of Pearl Harbor Survivors." He volunteers at the Pearl Harbor Memorial when we are on Oahu.

Why the Owner Chose Ilikai Hotel Condos:
My father was a Survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor and Hickam Air Field on 7 December, 1941. Dad was a career soldier in the Air Force and was once again stationed in Hawaii from 1962 to 1965. Our family loved Hawaii from the beginning. My job brought me to Hawaii on a number of occasions and it seemed that with each trip, I became more connected with my Dad's Pearl Harbor legacy as well as the local residents and their friendly customs. We vacationed on Oahu a number of times during all of those years as well. In 2003, we began looking properties we could use for part of the year and bought our unit at the Ilikai Hotel. We love the Hawaiian culture, its history, the food, music and the friendly local folks. We hope that you will choose our condo and enjoy your stay in Honolulu and Waikiki Beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We like to sit on our South lanai watching the surfers, sailboats and outrigger canoes. One of the great joys are the frequent rainbows that can be seen from our spacious lanais as we enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Our condo is completely furnished and includes all the appliances and amenities one would expect to find at home. As a result, when we visit our Hawaiian home, we feel like we are truly. We believe our deluxe amentities are a real plus for our renters and makes them feel at home, too. We enjoy the Royal Hawaiian Band that plays at noon every Friday at Iolani Palace. This is a must. We also enjoy the local Hawaiian entertainment, especially Sunday nights at the Waikiki Marriott. A unique benefit is that we can walk anywhere in the Waikiki Beach area in no more than 15 minutes. We always have a picnic or two at the Hale Koa picnic grounds just east of the Hilton Hawaiian Village. It's located at Fort DeRussey and is on the beach. They provide grills and picnic tables. We enjoy spending days at the beach from this location. We love going to the North Shore and watching the turtles near Haleiwa Town. And, we never miss a chance to stop at Matsumoto's Shaved Ice shop (snow cone) in Haleiwa for a well-known frozen treat.
