|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
Welcome to our home, O'ahu-'the gathering place'.
It's like living in New York High rising above the ocean. We know you will enjoy your stay here on the bustling city beach teeming with life.
We looked for years for the perfect blend of beach, city, nightlife, shopping, jungle and exotics. For us it is Wakiki Beach. Why? LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. There are many activities that will keep your party busy or relaxed during your stay. Everything is at your fingertips. Walking is our favorite pastime but if you need a rental car just go down stairs to lobby.
Cooking? Need an ingredient? Down stairs is a small market on first level past car rental agency, flower shop and business center.
Want to hit the beach? Surfing, Swimming, Snorkling, and Sunbathing just walk to parking level and the ramp out to sand, sunshine, lagoon and ocean waves.
Fridays at 7-7:30pm are fireworks at lagoon just stand in cocktail lobby area (BYOB) or ramp to beach.
Saturdays are movie night on the beach.
Fishing is right there at marina or walk further to channel. Fishing gear in forward closet-Kid stuff and Big Surf poles for Bigger Fish.
Visit our island paradise and discover the best chocolate cream pie, fresh spicy shrimp , and swimming with sea turtles larger than auto tires. Photos are from October 13, 2008.. And So MUCH MUCH MORE. Relax and watch plenty of Rainbows. Mahalo

Ramona Chang purchased this condo in 2003
Hawaii is my home and I want to share it with Aloha
Its the best for walking along the twinkling seashore and watch the Fireworks that are held every Friday Night. Balmy nights - salt air are romantic and fabulous. It is the perfect place for you and your friends!
We are a family of 6 (2 adults, 4 kids aged 14, 12, 11 & 8). This condo was perfect for our needs. Walking distance to the beach, Hawaiian Hilton lagoon, Ala Moana shopping centre, 10 min walk to the heart of Waikiki. The perfect place to relax, nearby restaurants & pubs & you can even sit in the balcony & watch the Hawaiian Hilton infamous luau! And did I mention the Friday night fireworks. A perfect holiday in paradise. Thanks Ramona!
The occasion was my parent's 50th Wedding anniversary - in their words 'Best Vacation we have ever had'. In great part because of the condo and Ramona.
Ramona made a great experience exceptional by paying attention to detail and taking care of all of the little things. The literature that was provided electronically prior to the trip and the information in the condo was extremely helpful - along with her texted tips. She was very responsive.
The condo is exactly as shown in the pictures, a perfect home away from home.
The location is exceptional as all of the tours and public transportation picks you up right out front. Having said that, we walked almost everywhere. There are exceptional restaurants nearby Goofy's Café and the Coffee House, The mall is a short walk away. We surfed, paddle boarded and hung out on the beach 3-4 days. Enjoyed the fireworks. Best restaurant was Allan Wong's - Duke's and House Without a Key. Lappert's Ice Cream is a 5 minute walk and is exceptional.
We toured the island a couple of days - Dole Plantation, North Shore and Polynesian Cultural center. We hiked Diamond Head, Manoa Falls and Lighthouse. Went to Pearl Harbor and the Chief's Luau all very accessible from where we stayed.
We had an amazing time, Ramona was great, very helpful and gave us great tips, the condo lobby was the perfect place to view the outstanding 4th of July fireworks. They say its location location location and this is true, the Ilikai is that location, the view from the condo was beautiful. The view of the Hilton`s show stage from the balcony was an added plus. When booking tours the Ilikai is great because we found we were one of the first hotels to get picked up so we could have our choice of seating and one of the first to get dropped off. In addition to fun in the sun and the aloha spirit I also had the best massage in the spa downstairs. Ala Moana Mall and beach park are an easy short walk. This was the first time I`ve rented a condo and Ramona made it an easy process, thank you for everything, Aloha, can`t wait to return
We have just arrived back from our 12 day stay at Ramona's Condo. Prior to our arrival Ramona provided us with all the info we needed to prepare for our holiday and she was very quick to respond to our emails. Very well located and everything at your doorstep, it was the perfect place to stay for our family with teenage children. Everyone could come and go as they pleased and with such a central location, access to shops, surf and restaurants we were all kept quite happy.
Although the unit was simply decorated, it had great amenities including excellent WiFi and TV, well stocked kitchen and bathrooms. The condo was also well stocked with beach equipment and toys, but they were a little old and could be updated, but never the less still worked and save us money from having to hire this equipment on the beach.
Apart from a plumbing issue in the ensuite (Ramona responded rather quickly to help us sort this) our stay was very relaxing and we enjoyed watching the luau on the roof of the hilton from our balcony as well as the fireworks (friday night). As a surfer my husband took great pleasure in checking the surf every morning - this was an absolute bonus for us!
We will definitely stay again as it very much felt like our home away from home. Thanks Ramona!
We have just returned from a two week holiday at Ramona's condo. The apartment is in a great location and very accessible to all transport. All the tours we booked picked us up out the front and The Bus and Waikiki Trolley stops are only a few metres away. It is a short walk to the beach or Hilton Lagoon and a casual 10 minute stroll to Ala Moana Shopping Centre. The unit itself is a bit dated (mainly kitchen and bathrooms) but it was tidy, clean and the beds / furniture were comfortable and to be honest how much time do you spend inside. We found all the staff working within the Ilikai very pleasant and helpful. Ramona was very professional, sent a lot of information regarding the unit and answered emails promptly. If I had to be picky it would be to suggest putting a Washer/Dryer in the unit. There are only 2 Washer/Dryers for the whole floor and at $5.00 a load to wash and dry it can be a bit expensive (especially when you have 2 teenage girls). Thanks again Ramona
We were looking for a place that would feel comfortable to a group of 5 and that would be convenient for an elderly person. This place was definitely the right choice. Ramona helped turn a potentially stressful situation into a great vacation. We had to change our trip dates due to Hurricane Ana threats and she was very accommodating, which took a lot of the stress away.
The place has beautiful views from every angle and on Tuesdays and Fridays you get to see the free fireworks from the hotel next door. They also had singing and hula dancing at the Ilikai on Friday night, which was great entertainment.
It really makes no sense to get a hotel room when you can rent a place like this, with a living/dining room and kitchen as added bonus. We were able to relax for breakfast in the morning while planning our activities for the day and if we didn't feel like doing much, we could just walk to the lagoon and beach. The weather was perfect throughout, even when it rained!
You can hop onto the Waikiki Trolley or city bus that stops right in front of the Ilikai. It literally takes you everywhere you might want to go. This was good for my elderly mother. We also ended up renting a car to get to North Shore and Hanauma Bay. The paid parking by the harbor was not cheap, but most convenient as you could just take the ramp at the back of the complex to get to it.
Having a kitchen was vital. It was fully stocked so you really just need to buy groceries. We always ended up with a lot of leftovers and my baby girl needs milk, so it was definitely useful.
Ramona really has the place stocked with all beach essentials. My baby girl loved that she had buckets and shovels to play with and my mom loved that she had beach chairs. These would all have been added expenses had they not been provided.
Definitely recommend staying here. My 3-yr old girl started calling it home after two days. It was an experience we will cherish for a long time.
