About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s) + Sofa, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Imagine the widest stretch of white sand on Waikiki beach stretched out in front of your accommodations. A serene, beachfront lagoon with majestic views of the turquoise and blue ocean and romantic seaside sunsets from your balcony. Your island paradise awaits you on the 17th floor of the most coveted wing at the famous Ilikai condo/hotel. We are Unit 1727. You will find the perfect mix of affordable resort accomodations and classic Hawaiian hospitality. In the Waikiki area, experience a sumptuous variety of restaurants and lounges. Enjoy world class shopping and fabulous nightly entertainment. You will not be disappointed by the clear blue and turquoise ocean and breath taking sunsets. We are located in the landmark Ilikai Hotel on the world famous Waikiki Beach of Oahu. This is the very same hotel you see in the opening scences of the old famous TV show, Hawaii 5-0. The Ilikai Hotel is conveniently located between the world renowned Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel and the Ala Moana Beach park. It is also a close walking distance to the Ala Moana Open Air Shopping Center and the magnificent Hawaiian Convention Center. The 5 star Hilton Hawaiian Village next door has the same beach and oceanfront we do, but they charge $400 - $800 a night and many of those rooms don't even have an ocean view and none have a full kitchen. Our 4 star Ilikai Hotel is less than half the price of the Hilton Hawaiian Village and we can guarantee you beautiful oceanfront and sunset views. Our suite has a kitchen that can save you hundreds of dollars in restaurant expenses if you decide you do not want to go out to eat for every meal.

If you decide to step away from the Ilikai, there are plenty of restaurants nearby to enjoy with friends and family. There are also many restaurants that you may visit on the mainland including Red Lobster, Outback, and the Chart House. These franchises along with local restaurants offer you every type of dining opportunity from every corner of the world to tantalize your taste buds. The Ilikai even has their own award winning restaurant on the 25th floor that can offer you panoramic views of the mountains and ocean while serving you gourmet cuisine.

If you are done sampling the local fare and you want to go shopping, the famous Ala Moana Shopping Mall is just a few blocks away from the Ilikai. You can walk there or you can take the free shuttle that stops in front of the hotel. If you want to do some shopping with an exotic flair, you can always go to the International Shopping Center in Waikiki and find unique gifts from all over the Pacific Rim.

If you are done shopping and dining you can always just go to the Ilikai's pool, prestine beach or exotic lagoon next door to soak up the warm Hawaiian sun and enjoy the cool tropical breezes. If you want to expend more energy, you can easily rent lounge chairs, surfboards, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, sea kayaks and paddle boats right on the beach. If you are motivated to take to the high seas, you can also take a catamaran sailing trip around Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. Save some energy for the sunset dinner cruise as well. There is so much to do in Waikiki. Visit the concierge's desk in the lobby of the Ilikai to take advantage of so many other things to do in Waikiki and on the island of Oahu. Our place is your oceanside home away from home.

About Robert Bayer

We are retired United States Naval officers and we are currently busy raising our 4 teenage children. We live in San Diego but we try to get to Waikiki as often as we can. Once the children are grown we hope to spend a lot more time at our slice of paradise in Waikiki.

Robert Bayer purchased this condo in 2007

Why Robert Bayer chose Waikiki

From our time spent at Naval Station Pearl Harbor we always enjoyed going to Waikiki. We always thought Waikiki would be a great place to retire after the Navy.

What makes this condo unique

Our place has wonderful views of the marina and the crystal blue ocean. The sunset and rainbow views from our unit are wonderful. Past guests at our place have told us our lanai does not receive direct sun most of the day so it is a great place to relax. They have also mentioned our beds are super comfortable.

Very nice little condo. A bit crowded with all the furniture but comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! They view from the balcony is spectacular. We didn't use the kitchen much, but there seems to be everything you need plus more. The bed is very comfortable, although not a big fan of the pillows. Overall.....a wonderful place to stay!

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 12 nights in the condo. It is a great location, next to the Hilton Hawaiian Village in the Ilikai Hotel, which is wonderful. Everything you need is in the condo, and the views of Ala Moana are wonderful. Got some great sunsets from the balcony. Cinnamons is great for breakfast and dinner. Bus stops are just outside, and most tours pick up from the flagpoles outside the Ilikai. There are a lot of restaurants around to suit any taste. We love Honolulu, and this condo was great as a home-from-home base. Rob made everything easy, and the FAQ he sent along was really helpful. All in all a great holiday in a really great and well looked after condo. Would definitely recommend and will hopefully come back to stay in the future.

We went to Oahu for a family vacation and had an amazing time! The condo is exactly as pictured and the location is awesome! The lagoon and Waikiki beach is walking distance and my kids loved all the activities that were close by. I highly recommend this condo!

A lovely property that is located in walking distance of restaurants, shops, and beach!

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed staying at this property. The units location was perfect and having a kitchenette helped with cutting down on expenses. We fit a family of 5 tight, but comfortable. The beds were extremely comfortable!! We had a hard time adjusting the temperature in the shower (varied- warm & cool), but it wasn't a deal breaker. A/C took a day to get working, but then it was cool & delightful!

We were able to fully enjoy everything Waikiki Beach had to offer us. We felt a lot of the restaurants, shops, & beaches were in walking distance. If we needed transportation to certain destinations, "The Bus" was a great way to cut down on expenses and it helped to save money for other activities. However, remember public transportation could take double the amount of time to get somewhere. We enjoyed Pearl Harbor, Kaoloua Ranch, Diamond Head, Hanamana Bay, afternoon Cataraman, surf lessons, Polynesian Culture Center with Luau, waterfalls, rainforests and lots more!

Beautiful beaches, restaurants, and shops!! Loved eating breakfast at Cinnamon's in the hotel!

Roys, Dukes, and Beachhouse were fantastic dinners out, but definitely need reservations 2 days in advance.

We also really enjoyed eating at a cute little local restaurant called Goofy's!!

This Hotel/Condo is in a Fantastic location in Waikiki beach!!!

The Waikiki Beach volleyball was our sons vacation highlight along with our daily excursions!! Our other 2 children loved the lagoon & watching Hawaii 5-0 film outside our condo on the beach!! Can't wait to return!!!!
