Ilikai Hotel Condos condo description

Just imagine your home away from home – whether you're on vacation, or on a temporary business assignment, or travelling with your children, or visiting by yourself. Stay in this luxuriously renovated 1 bedroom, it comes with a retractable (and completely hidden) partition wall, sleep in our ultra plush 'Chattam & Wells' California King-size bed, sink yourself in a leather sofa & loveseat, use the flat screen HDTV, DVD, stereo, A/C, fully equipped granite-topped kitchen, granite-topped bathroom with thick terry-cloth towels. The closets are spacious and dresser drawers are ample. You will also find a plush folding futon for additional guests. The spacious lanai comes with a table setting and a lounge chair and is perfect for outdoor relaxing and private resort dining. The lanai comes with the original sliding 'Ilikai Louvres' for added privacy. Kick back and become mesmerized by the sight and sounds of the tranquil ocean and lagoon on the cooler side of the Ilikai.

The Ilikai sits on the shoreline so a visit to Waikiki beach is steps away. In the evening watch Uncle Richard perform the traditional torch lighting ceremony (as he has been doing for over 45 years!) then celebrate the breathtaking sunset. On Friday and Sunday evenings from 6pm to 8pm, wander to the courtyard and listen to harmonic mele (songs) sung by Kawika’s Hawaiian trio and dance troupe. Kawika has been performing at the Ilikai for over 25 years!

Lounge at the pool or enjoy a meal or snack at one of the restaurants or lounges nearby. Savor a cup of coffee downstairs in the Coffee Shop before or after your early morning power walk. The Ilikai Bar & Grill is open for cocktails from 11 am until closing. They also serve breakfast beginning at 6 am, lunch at 11 am and dinner from 6 pm to 8 pm. Stroll down our private footbridge, around the Lagoon, chat with the local fishermen at the sea wall, and continue your stroll along Waikiki Beach. Walk the length of Waikiki Beach enjoying the laughter of children, the hiss of the surf, or the shouts of surfers as they ride the waves. Enjoy the torch lighting ceremony and hula at Kuhio Beach.

Our 10th floor lanai offers a front row seat to the Friday night fireworks display as dazzling pyrotechnics soar high above the lagoon and explode into shimering colorful arrays of light against the blackness of the night. You also have, literally speaking, a balcony view of the spectacular Hilton Hawaiian Hula Show next door. Our specific location in the Ilikai is a treat and we hope you experience the love we have for our hale (home).

Jump on a bus and travel to the Aloha Tower Marketplace, listen to the sounds of our famous local musicians: The Makaha Sons, the Cazimero Brothers, Jake Shimabokuru , Sistah Robi Kahakalau, Jerry Santos and others. Explore the richness of Chinatown. Go back with us in time as you wander inside the hallowed halls of the Bishop Museum. Visit the US Army Museum at Fort DeRussy, then walk back along the beach walkway to the Hilton Hawaiian Village and its Rainbow Bazaar. Take a short walk and explore the awesome Ala Moana Shopping Center and its famous 'Food Court' then cross the street and walk around Magic Island. Relive a defining moment in our nation's history with a visit to Pearl Harbor.

For the business traveler, we are within walking distance to the Hawaii Convention Center and all other major hotels along Waikiki including the Hilton Hawaiian, the Hale Koa, the Sheraton, Trump Towers, the Marriott, the Hyatt and the Ala Moana at far less their room cost.

For the acadamian or the physician, we are minutes away from the University of Hawaii Manoa, Chaminade University, Leeward and Windward Community Colleges, Kaiser Permanente and Tripler Medical Center.

Stay with us at the Ilikai and enjoy luxurious surroundings in paradise. We offer first class amenities at a low price. There is so much to do here with so much to write about, and I haven't even mentioned where the best local 'grinds' (eateries) are, meaning where the locals dine (call me and I'll let you know). You have to sample local favorites LauLau, Chicken Long Rice, Ox Tail Soup or Malasadas! Want to experience what a flea market on steroids feels like? Spend a morning or early-afternoon shopping at the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet! Yikes... I'm running out of space... and I havn't even described the neat places to visit on the leeward side, the windward side and the north shore of the island... Mahalo Nui!!

Fun Facts:

Hawaii is still growing (Lo'ihi, a new seamount 20 miles off the Big Island of Hawai'i, is giving birth to the chain's next island — due to rise above the waves in another 60,000 years)

The Hawaiian alphabet consists of only twelve letters - the 5 vowels are A, E, I, O, U and the 7 consonants H, K, L, M, N, P and W.

Paradise Cove Luau, the largest luau in the State of Hawaii, cooks 127.5 tons of kalua pig each year for its nightly luaus.

Hawaii is the only U.S. state that grows coffee (on the Big Island, Kauai and Oahu).

Hawaii has its own time zone. It’s called Hawaiian Standard Time. There is no daylight savings time in Hawaii, which means that in summer, Hawaii is two hours behind the U.S. West Coast, while in winter, Hawaii is three hours behind the U.S. West Coast.

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About: Throwing caution to the wind and taking an enormous leap of faith, we decided to purchase this condominium not knowing what we were really getting into. That was in December 2004 when the vacation rental business was really starting to take off... but who would rent it? Are there really people out there like us who truly love the romance, the mystique, the history and ambience of Hawaii as much as we do? The answer was YES! Our particular condominium has proven to be a destination spot for vacationers, travelers seeking a romantic getaway to celebrate special occasions including honeymoons, anniversaries and birthdays - and also business travelers. We have been amazed at the success. Who would have ever thought that our modest condominium would capture the hearts of so many guests from all over the world? Our 'hale' has now become our passion. We wish to share it with you; make it your 'hale away from hale'. We feel very blessed to be the 'caretakers' of this small parcel of paradise and we feel even more blessed to be able to share it with you. 'Mahalo nui loa!'

                          Why Ilikai Hotel Condos:
                          Words can never truly describe the alluring romance that dances in your mind once you have fallen in love with Oahu. 'Hale Aloha Aina' reflects why we chose the Ilikai for our home. 'Hale' means Home or dwelling, 'Aloha' means Love, and 'Aina' means Land. 'House of the loving land' While our home is quaint and modest, the land is luxurious and prestigious. From the sound of the hissing surf, to the fragrance of our tropical flowers, the freshness of the ocean breezes, the staccato rhythm of Polynesian drums and to the melting pot of a diverse group of people from around the world makes visiting Oahu a truly memorable experience. Every new day brings a new adventure. Come and stay for a while... 'E hele mai i ka hale a' (Our home awaits you).
