Great views of Waikiki beach and marina!

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this place. It was clean, has the most amazing views of the marina and beach and has everything you could need. Janna was really helpful and easily contactable, providing us with useful local information. Lots to do nearby, and easy walk if you want more. We enjoyed Watching the Friday night fireworks from the condo, shopping at the Ala Moana centre, swimming at the beach and eating out at nearby places.

Neat, clean place with AMAZING views!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here. The condo was well equipped with the everyday basics and everything was in good working order. It would have been nice to have a more modern bathroom (with an exhaust fan) and a nicer couch. But other than that, can’t fault the condo.

We also really enjoyed the location.. walking distance to the beach, shops and even downtown if you felt like a 15 minute walk! An added bonus was seeing the Hilton fireworks from our balcony on the Friday night!!

The only thing I found quite difficult for us was the 3pm check in time... even though we knew about it beforehand, given we landed at 7:30am after an 11 hour flight, it would have been really appreciated if Janna could have somehow allowed an earlier check in. Other than that, overall, definitely enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: ALoha Priya, Mahalo for choosing our slice of Paradise to enjoy Waikiki. To comment on your issues above. There is an exhaust vent in the bathroom (it is a building code) and part of the building . The sofa is a extremely comfortable, stylish and converts to a full size bed a functional part of the condo. In regards to an early arrival, which was not possible since the prior guest departed at 11am the day of your arrival, we need a full 4 hours to clean and prepare for your arrival. Mahalo for acknowledging the cleanliness, the location, the condo supplied with everything you needed and the fantastic view and fireworks. We hope you will return one day soon. Janna

Exceptional apartment with stunning views and perfect location- paradise indeed

  • 5 of 5

Aloha, I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. I would give it 6 stars if I could. The apartment is beautiful, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and very well stocked. Having a washer/dryer in the apartment was a real joy, made life very easy. The view from the apartment is exquisite and every day we sat on the lanai and watched the surfers and the sun setting over the ocean. We also watched the spectacular Friday firework show from the comfort of our own lanai. The location is perfect, the beach on our doorstep, an easy walk to the Ala Moana shopping centre, a bus route right outside and an ABC store across the road which we used frequently for food and wine. Janna is a joy to communicate with, she is professional, accessible and is very client- service orientated. When we checked in, I could not find a chopping board, I emailed Janna expecting her to reply with the location, instead, the next morning her assistant came round with a new chopping board. Needless to say, I found the 3 other chopping boards, but that is an example of the perfect service received from Janna. We had 8 glorious days in this apartment and I hope life brings us back to this beautiful apartment again. Mahalo Hawaii

Nice decor but old building and not on the main stretch of Waikiki.

  • 3 of 5

This property is at the Marina and there is beach access, however it's not on the main stretch of Waikiki. About a 10 min walk with some outside restaurants. The Ilikai is an old outdated building in desperate need of updates. The unit we had was on the 18th floor with phenomenal views and nice decor, but the plumbing was noisy and the shower had very little water pressure. The owner did replace the shower head, but water continued to leak from the faucet. The platform bed was not a plus for my husband. The Modern hotel shared the access sky bridge with the Ilikai and you felt like you were definitely on the wrong side of luxury. I should have looked at the location more closely and would rather have been on the nicer side of Waikiki Beach. Live and Learn.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for choosing to stay in my penthouse paradise luxury condo. I disagree with your description of the Ilikai Marina, the building is meticulously maintained and the same age as the Modern next door, with the anchor restaurants at street level being the famous Charthouse, Outback Steak House, Red Lobster and Harbor Pub which would hardly choose to be in as you stated an "Outdated Building"! The location of this building is the best and safest in Waikiki hence the reason such notable restaurants anchor it. It is also next door to the only full resort in Waikiki the "Hilton Hawaiian Village." You did contact me during your stay and mentioned the shower head was not giving you the water pressure you preferred so within 2 hours, I had the shower head replaced, I did not hear another word from you in regards to a leak nor has any other guest mentioned it. Please look at my post and prior reviews to get an accurate description of this luxury condo and my many other fabulous condos.
