About the property

Spacious Studio Type Condo With Full Kitchen

This condo is located in the center of the Lagoon wing of the Ilikai Hotel, it has a full direct view of the ocean and lagoon from anywhere in the condo. Although the Ilikai does advertise this as a one bedroom it is really a large studio condo. The kitchen was completely remodeled in March 2016 with new cabinets, stainless steel appliances and quartz counters. The bathroom was completely remodeled and a new air conditioner was added in October 2014. It has a King size pillow top bed and the sofa opens up to a comfortable queen size bed. It has a 40 inch flat screen TV with a blue ray player. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a great ocean view. The condo is on the 7th floor. The 120 sq ft lanai is shaded in the afternoon so you can enjoy the breeze and view all day long. You have a front row seat and can see most of the Hilton Friday night fireworks and luaus four nights a week. The Ilikai has 24 hour security and everything a resort hotel has to offer. This is the perfect place to stay to fully enjoy the Hawaii experience.

We use Marina Hawaii Vacations as the onsite management company. They are located in the lobby floor of the Ilikai for check in and out and to make sure that all of your needs are easily taken care of.

About Sherry Ashcraft

Isabel and her daughter Sherry live in California's wine country.

Sherry Ashcraft purchased this hotel in 2004

Why Sherry Ashcraft chose South Oahu

Isabel and her husband lived at the Ilikai years ago while he was working in Honolulu. It was a wonderful time in their lives and she has always had fond memories of what a special place it is. Obviously it was the first choice when she and her daughter wanted to buy vacation property in Hawaii.

What makes this hotel unique

The Ilikai is so conveniently located. Anything you could need is within walking distance. The ocean view and oceanfront location make it the perfect vacation property.

The Ilikai property is a perfect place for a family or a couple! The lanai is wonderful to hang out on morning or evening. The new pool and sitting area is wonderful although has a very limited time when you can use it (10am-6pm) . Everyone was very cordial and helpful when asked. The updates to the property are very nice. The location of the Ilikai is centrally located to shops, bus runs and the beach! Would recommend to others!

Stayed here for 10 days while on my honeymoon. Was impressed with the location, it's extremely close to a ton of amenities, we did not rent a car but a friend did. There is valet parking available, but other parking available nearby so you do not have to valet if you do not want to.

The kitchen is newly updated as well as the bathroom whereas the living space has older looking furniture. The bed is extremely comfortable though! You may want to wear socks in the apartment as it was un-mopped and your feet will pick up sand and such.

I do not recommend this unit for fireworks as you could see only 1/3 of them. It wouldn't have been as bad had you been able to see at least half of the fireworks. The great news is, it's only about a 10 minute show and they happen every Friday evening.

You can hear the luau each night from the hotel next door, and see towards the rooftop area where they host them. You overlook what seems to be a service entrance to the Ilikai and can hear the cars below but it's not too overwhelming. You also overlook the newer wading pool where adults like to bring their infant children so you can sometimes hear children playing.

The view is as stunning as the pictures when you're looking out to the ocean though, the pictures do not do them justice. And the price point was great for what you were getting.

Wonderful wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 13 days at this unit. The property is very clean and has been updated some. The bed and couch bed is extremely comfortable. TV and wifi great. Kitchen well stocked, great ice maker in the freezer. bathroom clean. Top location. We have stayed at the Ilikai before but this unit is wonderful with its views. Walk to Ala Moana Centre to buy groceries, walk to Walmart and Ross stores, walks along beach, walk or ride the bus to Waikiki main area. Plenty of restaurants right across the road or a short walk. It was just wonderful!!

Ideal location on Waikiki Beach. Picturesque. Can sit on lanai while drinking coffee and stare at ocean. Great restaurants in walking distance. ABC stores on nearly every block. Some things to consider while booking:

*Ilikai is also a hotel. The hallway is quiet all day, the hotel lobby is bustling during the day.

*There is a convenient store in the lobby.

*We used the valet parking. Fast, friendly service.

*Ask yourself and answer honestly: do I enjoy/tolerate children of all ages. If you answer "yes", this location is a good fit.

*Two restaurants on the premises. We went to Cinnamon's. Enjoyed their frozen cocktails and the Guava Pancakes are like a dessert.

*Wear socks while walking around the room because of un-mopped floor.

*Vaccuum cleaner sucks but the beater bar does not move. No dust pan to go along with broom to sweep up sand.

*This has nothing to do with the room, just an FYI. The beaches nearest the room are rocky and a bit uncomfortable to walk. Walk down a little further and you'll find less rough beaches to lay and swim.

*Decent length sidewalk along the beach to run/walk.

*Plenty of options to rent beach gear; snorkels, long boards, stand up paddle boards, etc.

*Room has two chairs and four roll out mats to take to the beach.

*WIFI in room is very fast.

The Ilikai is located at the beginning of Waikiki Beach, the Hilton Hawaii Village is right next door with all of the shops, restaurants and activities it has to offer. The lagoon is a wonderful place for swimming and water activities, it is warm and protected. The is a wonderful surfing spot on the beach at the hotel. The Ala Moana Mall is a five minute walk with world class shops and restaurants. The bus stops in front of the hotel with access to the entire island. There are numerous restaurants around the hotel. Several auto rental companies are fight across the street. This is truly one of the most convenient locations on the island.
