** About Our Condo***

Aloha and thank you, for checking out our recently renovated condo (Unit 1630 on the 16th Floor) 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. 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 modern condo is about 620 sq ft in size (including balcony/lanai which is about 120 sq ft) and can accommodate up to 4 adults. We have a comfy cal king size bed with 500 count Egyptian cotton sheets in the bedroom and a full size sofa bed in the living room. (Baby crib and stroller are complimentary and available upon request.) 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 privacy, the full-size sofa bed is situated directly behind the wall. Pillows, blanket and linen provided for sofa bed. (There is also a portable mattress if the kids prefer their own bed.)

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

The bathroom has a granite covered wall shower stall w/ removable shower head. Hair dryer, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and 100% Egyptian cotton towels are provided.

The lanai (balcony) has a nice dining table w/ 4 chairs to view the ocean and fireworks while dining. There are also 2 beach chairs, a portable cooler and 4 beach towels provided for our guests.

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, extra towels, pillows, linen, blanket, and of course, air conditioning and ceiling fan. Laundry facility is just down the hallway. And one of the best features is that our unit is located on the cool side of the hotel AND has a direct view of the ocean and Friday night fireworks from the beach!

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.

This is a 4 star room w/ much more to offer than nearby hotels like the Hilton or Ilikai Marina with rooms 1/2 our size.

If you cannot find availability, please consider our other ilikai units (VRBO Listing #433144 and VRBO Listing #381527).

***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 a 4.5 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.

Why Phi Nguyen chose Waikiki

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.

Thank you Phi & Shinomi.

Laurie and I had an excellent 2 week stay in your Condominium. The view speaks for itself! I spent more time on the lanai than in the apartment. This was our second time staying at your property in the Ilikai. We hope to return again sometime in the future. The location for us is pretty much perfect (at the quiet end of Waikiki but yet with direct access to both the Lagoon and the Ocean). The Ilikai is a classic building with a casually comfortable and yet still elegant style.

Thanks again

Ben and Laurie

Great stay for us!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great, it's convenient to go to the lagoon, and the beach. We had little kids so this is perfect for them. The unit that we rented has all the items that we need, and comfortable. You have all the freedom just like your own apartment. The owner, Phi Nguyen, is responsive and very helpful to our questions and requests. Overall, we had a very positive experience and would recommend this.

What a wonderful piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in two of Phi"s suites at the Ilikai over the holidays. We had a marvelous week! The units were exactly as shown and truly beautiful...the beds were very comfy and the units very clean and well equipped! This was our second time at this delightful and iconic location and we all highly recommend Phi's suites as your place to stay in Hawaii.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 9 day stay at this property. The property is as advertised online and the kitchen has all you need away from home to make your stay comfortable. The property is a bit tight for four people, but perfect for two/three. During most of our stay, the hotel pool was under construction so we couldn't use it, but considering the ocean is a few minutes walk from the property, it wasn't an issue for us. We enjoyed the Friday night fireworks directly from the balcony. We saved on parking cost by using the parking lot behind the hotel building ($1/hour) and the parkade in the building north of the hotel ($7 for 10 hours, which we used for overnight stay or $20 for 24 hours).
