Beautiful views and wonderful accomodation
We were surprised to see the panoramic view of the ocean and the marina. In most cases the pictures on the net are not close to what we think we get. However, in this case, the condo is an exact representation of the description. The interior design is charming and very comfortable with high end furniture. The kitchen is fully equipped with name brand appliances. We will definitely recommend this condo and will be back.
Wow! What a spectacular view ! Breathtaking
Every corner of this gorgeous condo keep getting better and better. The photos don’t get close to doing justice to the attention to detail and aesthetic of this calm relaxing home away from home. I loved my stay here and appreciated all the amenities, especially being able to use the washer dryer. In particular the new sofa bed was so comfortable at night and stylish for the day. Bathroom and kitchen are spotless which is always important to me. The condo is in a perfect location only steps away from the chart house where we enjoyed a Mai Tai and delicious food. Mahalo to host Janna for our time I’m paradise. We will be back soon !
Pictures are deceiving.
We arrived, room was 80 degrees.
We adjusted the thermostat but it was malfunctioning & kept resetting to 85 degrees. It was a miserable 1st night, They did change out the thermostat the following evening but offered zero compensation for 1st night. I barely slept, waking up numerous times in a sweltering room, needing to once again adjust the thermostat that would reset to 85. The person that changed out the unit to a simple non digital unit didn’t wire it properly. It had 3 settings for fan speed but only blew at high speed. When the “electrician” left he didn’t even switch the unit to A/C. He only had the fan blowing, & recirculating the warm air. When the place became even warmer, I walked over & looked at the thing. Flipped the switch to “on” and it immediately it started cooling the room. He came by the next day to pick up his wire strippers that he had left, I showed him the error since they said they would be converting all their units to this thermostat & he suggested I had inadvertently moved the switch to incorrect spot (Seriously!?)
The furniture is not well made throughout the place. The bed was barely up to my knees. It was like getting up off the floor in the morning. The mattress was not supportive. The bathroom sink had a huge crack & needed replaced. The mat in the shower was filthy & looked & felt like something you would put under an area rug to keep from slipping & falling (not a shower). It never dried, I can’t imagine the bacteria it contained (gross).
They suggested we watch a YouTube video on directions to operate the wash machine and dryer all in one unit. The video link was to a different model & was of little use. The video suggest it takes 3 hours to wash & dry one load of clothes. The dryer never did completely get the clothes dry even after an additional 120 minutes of drying. They expect you to only leave maximum of 2 days of towels & wash the rest of the towels or be charged from deposit. It made me concerned people might be encouraged to put away dirty towels. They don’t wash all the towels and confirm they are clean for next guest? (disgusting).
I was told by one of the help when they were changing thermostat that they have another rental unit that resets to 85 every Wednesday. These are programmable digital thermostats that have been incorrectly set up & they don’t seem to want to take the time to learn how to work them properly. Your comfort is not their priority. I would skip this place.
This is the review you receive when you refuse to give the guest a free night! I apologize that the thermostat was problematic, however it was replaced and the problem resolved within 2 hours; I take my guests' comfort very seriously. Please look at the other 61 reviews for accurate feedback on this stunning property. We look forward to welcoming you to your island home away from home very soon...Aloha!
Awesome apartment awesome views awesome time
The apartment was fabulous had everything you need for a home away from home vacation including cocktail glasses! we were there for our daughters wedding next door at the Modern hotel the walk way bridge was so convenient for us
I loved the views and made sure I got a sunrise shot each day
The bed was comfy,the aircon great, great storage so for our 10 night staywe put everything away, didn't have to live out of a suitcase
Thank you for an awesome apartment.
Very nice apartment
We really loved the location and the amenities. The management provided little things like dish and clothes washing soaps and condiments. Bed was pretty good. Management was responsive when needed. Everything worked.
From the time we got in to the time we left we were comfortable. Condo was clean and welcoming. Nicely decorated as pictures show from advertising. Only minor thing is we thought the lanai was larger. Still nice to be able to go outside to look around. Thank you for our stay
Mahalo for choosing our slice of Paradise! I'm grateful this condo has a lanai, given that it is small, 2 chairs and a little table will accommodate. Next door at twice the price "Hawaii Prince" rooms have no lanai. Mahalo for all your kind comments and we will look forward to your return visit to this amazing luxury condo with an unparalleled view of Waikiki.
This location is ocean front sitting on the Waikiki Yacht Harbor. The 'Ilikai Marina' is at the entrance to Waikiki the best location period! You can hop on the bus or walk everywhere. At street level in this building there are 4 restaurants, Chart House, Outback Steak House, Red Lobster and Harbor Pub. It is next door the the top hotel in Waikiki 'The Modern' with it's uber chic modern environment and fabulous bar and restaurant. You have access to the work out facility at the Ilikai Hotel. Parking structure attached to this condo.
