Aloha and thank you, for considering our 2012 remodeled condo (Unit 1436 on the 14th floor.) in the heart of Waikiki. The main pic you see is taken directly from our lanai (balcony). We’ve stayed at many other wonderful rental vacation homes and want to make sure your Hawaii experience is just as wonderful or more!
Our modern 1-BR condo is about 620 sq ft in size (including balcony/lanai which is about 120 sq ft) and can accommodate up to 4 adults. We have a comfortable Simmons king size pillow-top bed with 500 count Egyptian cotton sheets in the bedroom and a double-size sofa bed in the living room. (Baby crib and stroller are complimentary and available upon request.) The bedroom is separated from the living room by a wall and a curtain on each side of the wall (for ease of access to the bathroom and balcony). For some privacy, the sofa bed is situated directly behind the wall. Pillows, blanket and fresh linen provided for sofa bed.
The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with a granite counter, full size refrigerator w/ ice maker, glass top stove, microwave, indoor grill, rice cooker, crock pot, toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, utensils and more. (Don’t worry, you’ll find everything you’ll need in there.)
The bathroom has a glass-door shower w/ built-in stainless support rails and a chair for mothers with infants and those that need assistance. Hair dryer is mounted on the wall. Body wash, shampoo, conditioner and 100% Egyptian towels are provided.
The lanai (balcony) has a glass dining table w/ 4 chairs to view the ocean and fireworks while dining. There are also 2 beach chairs, a sturdy beach umbrella, a cooler and a boogie board stored on the lanai for guests use. Beach towels are also provided.
The condo also includes all the smaller finer things that will make your stay a complete comfort like a 42” LCD flat screen TV in the living room, cable TV, DVD/blue-ray player, free WIFI hi-speed internet (room & lobby), extra towels, pillows, linen, blanket, and of course, air conditioning. Laundry facility is just down the hallway. And one of the best features is that our unit is located on the cool side of the hotel AND has a direct view of the ocean and Friday night fireworks from the beach!
There is parking on the streets and valet parking. Street parking is directly behind the building. On one side next to the lagoon is free parking from 4:30am to 10:30pm. On the other side is a large lot with price ranging from $1/hr to $6 for 10hrs. Valet parking is $30/day and includes unlimited in & out privileges.
This is a 4.5 star room w/ much more to offer than nearby hotels like the Hilton (pricey) or Ilikai Marina (far from beach) with rooms 1/2 our size.

***ABOUT THE ILIKAI***
When you watch the classic Hawaii Five-O TV show, there’s a shot of Jack Lord on a balcony of a hotel. Yup, you guess right. It’s the Ilikai! And instantly, the Ilikai became a landmark in the heart of Waikiki. This lady has been around since the 60’s but has been kept up very well with a recent renovated lobby, earthly toned hallways, and a clean line swimming pool with towel service. Definitely a 4.5 star rated hotel. There are also various shops on the ground floor, a romantic Italian restaurant on the top floor, and across the lobby is the internationally renowned Iron Chef Morimoto’s Japanese fusion restaurant.
