Guestbook comments from the owner

Gary, the owner of this condo, is very kind, and accommodating. I had some questions before booking and requests and he was easy to do business with. The condo is comfortable with an excellent view of the swimming pool, lagoon, beach, ocean and boats going by. You can watch the fireworks from the lanai. The lanai has a table and chairs and two lounge chairs. The condo has a comfortable bed, a beautiful upgraded shower and many kitchen appliances to prepare meals, ie toaster, rice cooker, Keurig coffee machine, small kitchen grill, mixer, etc. I appreciated the nicer bed linens and towels than some condos provide. I would recommend this condo and I hope to stay there again in the future.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful vacation due to the condo location, which was central to so many places. The view was spectacular and I highly recommend this unit for anyone looking for a reasonable, spacious, well appointed and clean condo.

Beautiful! Exactly what we were hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed in this condo on a 10-day vacation. The condo was exactly what we were hoping for- cozy, comfortable, clean, and quiet. The kitchen and closets were stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals and visit the beaches. The location was absolutely perfect!! From restaurants and bars to beaches, shopping, parks, and watercraft rentals, this is exactly what we wanted. The building was very quiet and peaceful. We would absolutely recommend this property to anyone visiting Honolulu/Waikiki. It was a great experience for us. Thank you!

Beautiful Condo with Awesome Ocean View

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a Five Star stay at Gary's beautiful condo at the Ilikai in Honolulu!! The unit was exactly what we expected from the listing description, and even more. It was sparkling clean and had everything we needed for a fun stay. The furnishings were very comfortable. Gary's customer service was very prompt and friendly! The view of the ocean from the lanai was outstanding and great for coffee in the morning or wine under the stars at night. We had a front row seat for the fireworks across the lagoon at the Hilton on Friday night!! The location is perfect. We enjoyed walking the beach at Waikiki and being able to walk anywhere in Waikiki for dinner. The Ala Moana Mall is less than a mile away and there is a brand new Whole Foods in Honolulu less than 2 miles away. We enjoyed eating at Roy's in Waikiki, and Ruth's Chris, We highly recommend this Beautiful Condo for an enjoyable stay in Honolulu/Waikiki. Mahalo to Gary for his hospitality!! Aloha, Wayne and Patti

Clean, perfect location and right price

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week. Very nice condo. Price is right, the bathroom has been updated, and the view is great! The owner is very responsive and the managing company is also great. Much cheaper than hotels!

Amazing Condo and view

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st time in Hawaii and using a VRBO rental. It was perfect! I would say it was very clean and described accurately. Gary was so helpful and always answered my emails quickly. The King size bed was very comfortable. The view was breathtaking. We ate breakfast every morning from the lanai. The condo has all of the dishes you would need to cook any meal. It was a Huge plus that they have beach chairs and towels to use. We loved using the cooler with wheels to take to the beach. It was a easy walk to many restaurants and International Market.

Also, the shower was very nice and the bathroom very spacious. We used the washer and dryer at the end of the hallway and it worked very nicely.

We never rented a car, but walked where we wanted to go or we used Uber or Lyft. Outside the condo is a very nice pick up spot if you are taking a tour bus.

The fireworks display on Friday night was breathtaking. We watched it right from the Lanai. Every night the hotel right across from us also had some sort of entertainment that we got to enjoy for free as well. They had Hula dancers and fire twirlers. The Ilikai also has a very nice Hula show and some great singers for free entertainment. I would definitely recommend walking down to the beach at least one night to watch the sunset. It was very beautiful.

I tell everyone I know to rent this condo if they are going to Hawaii. I would love to go back and rent this same condo if I come back to Hawaii. It would be amazing to own such a nice place. Thank you Gary for making a dream come true.

Great location, clean, cozy

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai. The rental was clean and conveniently located with most of the appropriate amenities. I would say that the decor is somewhat dated and the vinyl flooring could use an update in some places but we weren’t there long enough (and when we were, we were enjoying the wonderful view from the balcony!) for these things to be of concern. For the price, space and location this is a great value. The bed was very comfortable.

We would definitely recommend this property. The view was amazing. Unfortunately, we didn’t make it back to the condo for the fireworks but they were beautiful from the beach.
