  • Awesome Condo

    "We had a wonderful stay at the Waikiki Beach Tower. Great beach access and great beach. All three girls loved playing in the waves- was really nice to have the protected area for the little ones and bigger waves just a little further down. Very comfortable accommodations and well stocked condo. Owner was very responsive and great to work with. Will definitely stay again!"

  • We really like it. Fun, elegant, clean. Nice kitchen.

    "This was our first time using VRBO and it was a great experience. Booking was easy. Now that the kids are in school, my husband and I wanted to take some time off. This condo sleeps 6 comfortably, but we want to be in a nice place. It is more like a fancy apartment than a hotel room - at the same price as a hotel room. We really liked the large kitchen and we saved a lot of money by going to the grocery store a block away, and cooking at the condo. There are indoor, and out door dining rooms, with spectacular views. The managers were really nice and the room cleaners did a great job. The bathroom is really lovely and new looking, super sanitized. The decor is modern and Hawaiian style, pretty fancy. There are two flat screen TV's. We rented a car just for two days, the rest of the time we could walk around. My husband is older and cannot walk very well, but he had no trouble as everything is very close. Alhoa"

  • What a nice place

    "From the time my wife and I walked into the room we new this was going to be a great place to stay. It was very clean and comfortable. It has a nice kitchen for cooking just in case you didn't feel like eating out. It is located on the 17th floor and when you step out onto the Lanai the view will take your breath away. The room is located at the Ilikai hotel which in my opinion is one of the best and most iconic hotels on Waikiki beach. Remember Jack Lord standing on top of this hotel at the beginning of the TV show Hawaii 5-0. That's the Ilikai. It is located in a quiet area of Waikiki. It is close to everything that someone on vacation might want to visit. I am definitely looking forward on returning next year. Thank you Jeng for allowing stay at your place."

  • Graduation

    "Went to Hawaii for my daughter's graduation, and the condo turned out just perfect! Looks just like it does in the photos. You can tell that the owner cares about the maintenance an upkeep of her condo. I was given great instructions for checking in, parking, use of elevators, laundry etc. Great location if you want to be in near good Waikiki shopping. I would stay here again if I was planning a trip back to Ohau, and would recommend it as a great and very comfortable place to stay."

Here you’ll find the height of Hawaiian culture with various restaurants, shops, activities and entertainment.

In addition to aquatic adventures, there’s plenty to do on land as well. Waikiki and the surrounding areas are full of historic sites, museums, natural wonders and a ton more to make your vacation a memorable one.

Things to Do in Waikiki

Diamond Head: As one of Hawaii’s most well-known landmarks, Diamond Head is a volcanic tuft cone with an exciting hiking trail, amazing coastal views and military history. The crater was formed more than 300,000 years ago during an explosive volcanic eruption. The trail was built in 1908 as part of a coastal defense system, and on the summit itself you'll see military bunkers. The top of the hike also provides a postcard-like view of the shoreline.

Waikiki Beach: Waikiki Beach is one of the most famous in the world. You won’t want to miss out on the two-mile stretch of white sandy shores meeting stunning, warm waters. Waikiki Beach is the perfect spot to stretch out that towel and relax in the warm sun with a good book or take to the water for adventures with boogie boards, surfing and swimming. It’s also a great place to try out a catamaran or outrigger canoe ride.

The memorial was built in 1962 and is certainly a historic and moving place to visit. The remains of the the battleship were declared a National Historic landmark in 1989.
