About the Property

Spacious 2 BR/2 BA Condo (Sleeps 6) - Value Priced

A Memorable Family Hawaiian Vacation

Step out of the Ilikai on the ocean side, and you will immediately walk through the beautiful Ilikai courtyard, along the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, the public Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon, and onto the beach at Waikiki. As you stroll around the lagoon, you will see the long stretch of Waikiki Beach with a beautiful picturesque view of Diamond Head. You may spot the filming of an episode of Hawaii Five-0 (Hawaii Five-0 episodes are often filmed on the beach below our condo) or a movie set, as we did, during the filming of the movie Godzilla. Your family can choose to spend a day swimming, playing in the sand, and renting the various water toys available at the lagoon, or go a few steps further and set up for a day at the beach. If you wish to break from the sand and surf, enjoy sunbathing and swimming at the Ilikai pool. You can also plan a BBQ at the Hale Koa picnic ground by the beach where tables and grills are provided on a first come basis. You are welcome to use any items available in our condo such as coolers, beach chairs, water and sand toys, snorkeling gear, boogie boards and more to use for your chosen activities.

Jog around the lagoon in the morning or stroll along Waikiki Beach in the evening and end up shopping the exclusive shops on Lewers Street and beyond. Many excellent restaurants and activities are located nearby for your convenience, relaxation, and enjoyment. On the other hand, you may wish to spend an evening in the condo preparing and eating dinner and watching a Hawaiian luau from either of our two lanais. In the Ilikai courtyard, enjoy free Friday evening entertainment featuring traditional Hawaiian music, stories, and hula dancers provided by Kawika Trask & friends. Then at 8 p.m., turn your attention to the Friday night fireworks display over the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon.

We strive to make our guests feel at home while staying in our condo. Before the day begins, relax on the lanai with your morning coffee watching the morning activities and enjoying the beautiful ocean views. Our comfortably furnished, spacious, two-bedroom condo offers all of the comforts and conveniences of home. Our condo includes two large lanais, a fully-equipped kitchen, two full-sized bathrooms (with handicap features and accessibility), free WiFi, two HD flat screen TVs with cable TV, a DVD player including a selection of movies for your enjoyment and entertainment after a full day of activities and fun. We also have a library of novels (take one/leave one) for your reading pleasure. You are renting our Hawaiian home, not a commercial condo or high-priced hotel room.

Our condo comfortably sleeps six adults plus a play ‘n pack for a small child (1 queen, 1 king or convert into twin beds, a queen sofa bed). It is well-maintained, clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, and conveniently located – just a short walk to the upscale Ala Moana Shopping Mall, a reasonably priced grocery store, ABC Stores, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Walgreens and many Waikiki Beach attractions. Thus, our condo offers exceptional value and convenience when compared to the amount paid for a hotel room that only sleeps 2-4 people and doesn’t contain the extra amenities we offer. By staying with your family in our condo and using the conveniences we supply, you will save hundreds of dollars on your Hawaiian beach-front vacation.

If you wish to explore other parts of the island like Diamond Head, the Blow Hole, North Shore, Pearl Harbor Memorial, Punch Bowl, the flea market and more, public transportation on Oahu is convenient and easy to use. Renting a reasonably priced car on a daily basis is easily available and located across the street in the Discovery Bay building. For a longer-term car rental, valet and self-parking are available for a fee at the Ilikai.

We hope you choose our Hawaiian home for your tropical vacation! We would love to have your name and comments added to our guest book!

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 11, 14 and 17 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 Waikiki, Honolulu, HI, USA:
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 for 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. From October through December, we enjoy the many beautiful sunsets from our lanai, too. 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 at home. 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, on Friday evenings with Kawika & friends in the Ilikai courtyard then turn our chairs to enjoy the fireworks over the Hilton Lagoon. 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.
