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 South Oahu

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.

Beautiful view from the lanai

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything you are looking for in Hawaii! The view from the 17th floor was spectacular! The ease to get to anyplace in Oahu you wanted to go was amazing! Although the condo was crowded with a bit too much furniture, all comforts you could ask for where available in this unit. It was a quiet unit for sleeping, a great kitchen for preparing meals, and an amazing lanai to dine out on! Cannot wait to come back to this condo!

So Central

  • 5 of 5

Nicely located between the Ala Moana shopping center and downtown Honolulu this Condo has everything needed for a visit to Oahu, double rainbows first thing in the morning and magnificent sunsets in the evening at no extra charge. The condo is well equipped for family or solo flyer alike and the customer service is outstanding. Robert could not have been more accommodating (pun intended) when I had a change in visit dates and the people he has on the ground at the Ilikai were excellent. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

My girlfriend and I have been here for a week and the place was amazing. The condo was exactly as described. Location was perfect as you're not central with all the tourists but easily within 10 minutes it. Shopping plazas are 10 minutes either side of you and tons of food places around.

Rob was only a phone call away and answered my calls and emails when I had them. Great service.

Basically, we plan on coming back and would choose here again in a heart beat.

Waikiki vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our 6th Anniversary. We chose this condo for the location, for the positive reviews and the cost. Rob was excellent with communication and great to work with in regards to the condo payment arrangements. There was enough space in the condo to feel comfortable. The bed was super comfy. The kitchen is well stocked with necessary appliances & cookware. The location is in a fantastic area. We walked to many things and there is a car rental across the road as well as buses that will take you just about anywhere. The cost of the bus was $2.50 per person (one way).

We went to Pear Harbor, hiked Diamond Head, took the Atlantis Submarine Tour, went to the Dole Plantation and went to the Chief's Luau. We kept busy during our 6 days there. I highly recommend eating at Gilligan's Beach Shack Truck which is located in the parking lot behind the lagoon. This was a safe area to be in & to take many moonlit walks at night. Yes there is a lot of traffic but if you want beauty from the beaches & water and you want activities to keep you busy plus the convenience of the condo......look at the Ililkai & talk to Rob. Thanks for helping us have the perfect vacation.

Very good experience!

We were very satisfied with our two night stay in this nice and home feel appartment. The check in and check out were so easy and fast. We didn't have problem finding cheap parking spot near the building. Very good location for everything. We will recommend this appartment to other friends for sure. :) Thank you!
