Recent Waikiki reviews

  • Great location & very beautiful!

    "The rental is located right at the heart of Waikiki. Secure building, comes with parking so its a bargain. This rental unit has it all: bogey boards, snorkel gear, cupboard full of everyday condiments, pots/pans & cooking equipment (even a BBQ grill), ironing boad/iron, printer, wifi, and a whole lot more! My family will definitely stay here again. It's just a block up from IHOP. The beach is only a 3 minute walk (the one by the "Pink" Sheraton Hotel is highly recommended)."

  • Wonderful location and Accommodating Hosts!!

    "We just returned from a wonderful one week stay at this rental in the Ilikai. Having never been to Waikiki before and not really clear about where the Ilikai was in relation to the general area, I was extremely pleasantly surprised by the close proximity to the ocean, the amazing views, and how easy it was to get around. Some people may prefer to be right in the middle of Waikiki and all the hustle and bustle, but we actually really enjoyed the Ilikai's location kind of on the edge of Waikiki. It is very close in walking distance to the Ala Moana Shopping Center and also Ala Moana Beach Park, as well as a large Walmart which sells all the macadamia nut chocolates you could want for much cheaper than the shops right in Waikiki. The rest of Waikiki is close within walking distance or a couple of bus stops, and it was nice to come back to a quieter area at the end of the day. As for getting around, the bus for getting to Diamond Head is right in front of the hotel, with the bus going to Pearl Harbor right across the street. At $2.50 a ride regardless of distance, it's a great deal and no worries about finding/paying for parking. From the airport to the Ilikai and back, we took the shuttle as recommended by Rob, which was super easy and convenient. We did rent a car one day to drive up to the North Shore and go to the Polynesian Cultural Center (must see!!); not being an airport rental desk meant it closed at 6pm and we couldn't return it same day, but we were able to park around the back of the Ilikai for $1/hr which was much cheaper than the hotel valet parking ($28/day). The only minor comment I would make is that the divider between the "bedroom" and "living room" areas is the pull out accordion style, but there wasn't anything to latch it to after pulling it out (unless we missed it). Not a big deal though as we were able to use some string to anchor it to the balcony door handle. Rob was very quick in responding to any inquiries we had in the period prior to our stay. We were arriving very early in the morning with a wedding to attend that afternoon, and when Rob was able to confirm that there were no guests in the rental the night before our stay, he was able to arrange that the rental be ready and allowed us to check in early. It definitely took a lot of stress off of us in wondering where we would be able to get cleaned up and ready in time for the wedding. Thanks again, so much!!"

  • Great Location. Comfortable Apartment- Don't hesitate!

    "What a great location. Our family of 5 - Dad, Mum and 3 Teenage boys (20, 17 & 14) all thoroughly enjoyed or stay in unit 2002. It was exactly as presented on this site. It is clean, comfortable and everything works. Merry the owner was extremely helpful. She was always contactable via email or phone and allowed us to check in a few hours early on arrival. She also had a great tip about a local taxi service to book for airport pickup. The unit is only one block from the beach. There is a Food Pantry supermarket a couple of blocks away to help fill the fridge if you want to cook and eat at home on occassion. The added bonus of beach chairs and boogie boards was much appreciated. The free high speed wi-fi was a great bonus. It kept the boys connected. Also we got to watch the last 2 episodes of "Breaking Bad" live thanks to the widescreen TV and pay TV. We can't wait to return at sometime in the future."

  • Great location, well equipped condo

    "The condo is in a great location. You can walk to anywhere in Waikiki in a few minutes. There is a grocery store just down the street as well. The condo comes very well equipped. Everything you would need for a holiday stay is there. The condo is very clean, although a little dated, but all the buildings in Waikiki are of the same age so this is to be expected. The only note against the condo for us was the bed was very soft and we prefer a firmer mattress. The free parking is a BIG plus... So convenient as we rented a car to explore Oahu. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend the condo to friends. If you are looking for a great place to stay for reasonable rates, this is a great find."

Situated on the south shore of the Hawaiian island Oahu in the the city of Honolulu, the neighborhood of Waikiki is famous for being the former playground of Hawaiian royalty. Waikiki, which means spouting waters in Hawaiian, is the area’s main destination for visitors from all around the world. Here you’ll find the height of Hawaiian culture with various restaurants, shops, activities and entertainment.

Waikiki is mostly known for its exceptional beaches, with almost everything within walking distance to the ocean shores. Whether you’re looking to learn to surf, dive in for a swim or just laze around in the sand, it’s all right there for you.

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.

Society of Seven (SoS): For some top-notch Hawaiian entertainment, look no further than the Society of Seven. This group has been headlining shows at the Outrigger Main Showroom since 1969 and still wows crowds to this day. The Hawaiian band puts everything they have into each show, displaying their talent and energy every time they take the stage. Each performance is full of singing, dancing and comedy skits, showing off their hilarious personalities. SoS has released many albums and also has a regular show in Las Vegas. The SoS show in Waikiki is a favorite among locals and visitors alike.

Pearl Harbor: There are a variety of exhibits, memorials, displays and museums within the ground of Pearl Harbor to honor those lost in the attacks and those who served during the second World War.

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.

Off the beaten track, this restaurant provides you with traditional Hawaiian dishes like kalua pig and lau lau with pipikaula and lomi salmon and poi on the side.

International Marketplace: With more than 100 shops and stalls set against a jungle-like backdrop of banyan trees, this is definitely one place you’ll want to stop to pick up mementos and gifts for loved ones. Whether you’re looking for traditional Hawaiian jewelry, fun knick-knacks or just a t-shirt to commemorate your visit, you’re sure to find it at the International Marketplace.
