Overview

About the property

Contemporary Condo W/ 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Full Kitchen and Balcony

Aloha and thank you, for considering our recently remodeled Ilikai Hotel/Condo in the heart of Waikiki. A complete kitchen remake in 2016! This is in addition to our major 2014 remodeling includes new hardwood flooring, new closet system, and wall separating the living room and bedroom. The main pic you see is taken directly from our lanai (balcony). The lagoon and beach is next to the yacht harbor on the left side. We’ve stayed at many other wonderful rental vacation homes and want to make sure your Hawaii experience is just as wonderful or more!

Our newly renovated contemporary style condo is a large 620sqft 1-Bedroom Condo (including balcony/lanai which is about 120sqft) and can accommodate up to 4 people with a comfy Cal-king size pillow top bed w/ 500 thread count cotton sheets and a double-size sofa bed. (There is also a portable mattress if the kids prefer their own bed.) The bedroom is separated from the living room by a solid wall and a curtain on each side of the wall (for ease of access to the bathroom and balcony). For some privacy, the sofa bed is situated directly behind the wall. Pillows, blanket and linen provided for the sofa bed and portable mattress.

The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with a granite counter, full size refrigerator, glass top stove & oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, utensils, and more.

The bathroom has a shower stall w/ granite walls. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and a hair dryer are available. Unit includes 8 sets of bathroom towels and 4 beach towels.

Our large 120 sq ft lanai (balcony) has a nice outdoor dining table set for 4 people to enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean at every meal. There are also 2 beach chairs, cooler and a boogie board stored in the lanai for guests use. Four beach towels are also provided.

The condo also includes all the smaller finer things that will make your stay a complete comfort like a 40” LCD flat screen TV in the living room, cable TV, DVD/blue-ray player, free WIFI hi-speed internet, bath & beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, pillows, cotton linen, blanket, and of course, air conditioning. Laundry facility is just down the hallway. Our unit is located on the yacht harbor side of the hotel AND has a direct view of the harbor, ocean and sunset.

There is parking on the streets and valet parking. Street parking is directly behind the building. On one side next to the lagoon is free parking from 4:30am to 10:30pm. On the other side is a large lot with price ranging from $1/hr to $6 for 10hrs. Valet service for a 24hr period is about $30 with unlimited in and out privileges.

If you have a large number of people in your group, we do have 2 additional units inside the Ilikai Hotel. Both units #1436 (VRBO Listing #381527) and #1630 (VRBO Listing #498240) are located on the Lagoon side and also have ocean view plus Friday night fireworks.

This is a 4.5 star room w/ much more to offer than nearby hotels like the Hilton or Ilikai Marina with rooms 1/2 our size.

***ABOUT THE ILIKAI***

When you watch the classic Hawaii Five-O TV show, there’s a shot of Jack Lord on a balcony of a hotel. Yup, you guess right. It’s the Ilikai! And instantly, the Ilikai became a landmark in the heart of Waikiki. This lady has been around since the 60’s but has been kept up very well with a recent renovated lobby, earthly toned hallways, and a clean line swimming pool with towel service. Definitely at least a 4 star rated hotel. There are also various shops on the ground floor, a romantic Italian restaurant on the top floor, and across the lobby is the internationally renowned Iron Chef Morimoto’s Japanese fusion restaurant.

Phi Nguyen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Phi Nguyen chose South Oahu

To have a place for our friends and families to visit us. We want all our guests to get the best Waikiki experience, so what better than a beach front location with all the essential amenities and at a great price. It doesn't get much better than the famous Ilikai Hotel.

What makes this condo unique

Modern, stylish, spacious, clean, beach front and very affordable. A great value for Hawaii!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, for everything! We had a great time and had an enjoyable experience here.



We went to Yanagi at your recommendation and loved the sashimi. However, Nico's at Pier 38 has gone upscale and lost its appeal and the food wasn't that great.



We had a blast at Shark's Cove! I think it had the most fish variety compared to a few other snorkeling spots that we went to.

Excellent condo with a gorgeous sunset view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed staying at this condo. The room was very clean and the air conditioning worked great. Seeing the sunset from the balcony was one of the highlights of our Hawaiian vacation!

We stayed here and loved it. Cute condo and convenient location. Overlooking the marina and ocean was beautiful every morning while eating breakfast out on the balcony. Highly recommended.

Nice location, view and amenities

  • 4 of 5

The unit was well stocked and we loved the Ilikai amenities and the location. The king bed is comfortable. An easy walk to Ala Moana park or Waikiki. The view is amazing! The building is a little older but historic. All in all, a really nice stay.

Great location and nice views. Nice condo was perfect for our one week stay.

  • 4 of 5

The property is conveniently located just steps from the beach and lagoon (awesome for kids!) The views of the small boat harbor and ocean are really nice. The condo was a perfect size for our family of three, with everything we needed including cookware, towels, beach towels, beach toys, and so on. All the major Waikiki attractions are walking distance and cab rides are $10 or less. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone wanting to be close to the Waikiki beach scene.
