About the property

This Beautiful Re-Model Along With Our Sister Unit VRBO560972 Will Delight You!

Your completely newly and stunning remodeled condo greets with a view of the ocean and lovely lagoon. Watch the Friday night fireworks from your oversized lanai. Dine next door at world famous Morimoto Restaurant or go up the glass elevator to Sarento's at the Top of the Ilikai for drinks and fantastic food in the round and catch a magnificent sunset then watch Honolulu twinkle at night with their breathtaking panoramic views. Check your e-mail with your free Wi Fi or watch your free cable or connect to your Netflix account on the large flat screen TV. Enjoy the all Italian leather furniture or European linens. Experience the 40-year-old tradition of Hawaiian torch lighting that happens nightly or the hula show downstairs next to the newly opened Cinnamon's restaurant and bar that serves the best pancakes anywhere!

The Ilikai is a classic oceanfront hotel that stands proudly at the entrance to Waikiki and it's beachwalk overlooking the most famous beach in the Pacific. A private walkway leads directly from the hotel to the redesigned Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon and the most desirable strand of Waikiki Beach. From our lovely and spacious ocean view room on the 11th floor which faces the ocean and the lagoon, we think you will love it here as we offer relaxing accommodations that suit your every need. You can snorkel, surf, hike, kayak, paddle board, scuba, swim, or shop within minutes and all the equipment is available here.

The Ilikai's convenient location allows for easy access from Waikiki to many popular area attractions. You'll find yourself within easy walking distance to Ala Moana Beach Park, Ala Moana Center, Waikiki Beach Walk, and the Hawaii Convention Center. Downtown Honolulu is located only a few minutes away by car. The outlet malls have buses which pick you up here!

Most all our wonderful guests are returning ones and we hope you will come again and again. You will feel like royalty! There's a reason Elvis stayed at the Ilikai along with presidents and other notables! We keep beach toys and accoutrements for you such as beach chairs, floats, and boogie boards for your pleasure. Nothing beats the salt water pool which is only an elevator ride away with its valet towel service and adjacent pool house where you can relax between dips, sip some delightful tropical beverage, and enjoy a good books. Or relax over coffee on your lanai. It's all great -- especially when you have your own beautiful full sized kitchen with granite counter tops and can do your own thing on your own schedule! Our guests cannot rave enough! So will you!

Drop your cares and come stay with us at your 'Dream of Aloha' 2015 Re-modeled beautiful one bedroom which includes California King bed, large screen television, WiFi, all new appliances, new wood floors, new ceiling, serenity painted walls, great art, new leather furniture, and all the comforts of home.

About Patricia Rust

I am a travel writer and in re-modeling the condo, I gave it every touch I look for when traveling from soft sea colors to European linens from Italian leathers to soft Egyptian cottons. I keep paper products and snack things stocked for a cozy feeling on arrival....mi casa es su casa....I want my home to be your home and for you to have a fabulous trip! While writing and traveling for the Huffington Post teaches me all the great things there are in the world, I try to bring them to you and spoil you in every possible way from cut crystal to the finest linens and towels!

Patricia Rust purchased this condo in 2007

Why Patricia Rust chose Waikiki

I bought it to live in myself! But families do change! Also, I like to travel to Mediterranean countries and know what a bargain Hawaii is by comparison! Our monthly rate is their weekly rate! You just can't beat Hawaii or the prices! Also, I grew up here and have watched the aloha spirit in action and I haven't found it anywhere else! I love the new relaxation pool where you can float your chaise lounge on the pool then go to the new massage spa!

What makes this condo unique

The Ilikai is an iconic hotel for a reason. You take the elevator downstairs and you are at the lagoon and ocean. Everyone is friendly. Yesterday, they put in a Food Pantry grocery store which is a fine grocery store like a Gelson's. I'm so excited. They even have a sushi chef in another one! So, I can't wait to see this one. Their coffee place is the best and the grounds couldn't be nicer overlooking the yachts at the Marina where a stroll is always in order. The Ilikai is lovely and has been re-modeled and maintained. That's why folks come again and again!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place is amazing!!! I stayed here for a whole week with my mom and a family friend. More than three people would be too much. The view is spectacular and I spent most of my time on the lanai when we were in the condo. I will definitely be back again. Patricia is a great host and was there if we had any questions. I highly recommend Patricia's beautiful condo.

Stayed in this amazing condo for a whole week and let me tell you. I am definitely coming back. Patricia is an amazing person who kept in touch and was there for any questions. The view is just spectacular, I spent most of my time there when I was in the condo. It's close to all the shopping malls and centers. I would highly recommend it.

Nice place for the value

  • 4 of 5

Overall the place was very nice. We had a minor issue and Patricia handled it right away. Really enjoyed breakfast on the balcony.

The beach was a bit of a small walk. That wasn’t a deterrent to not going. Plenty of shopping and restaurants around the property. The market downstairs was great feature of the property. The drinks and food was a bit more than the ABC store but you pay for the convenience.

Thanks Patricia for the wine and chocolates! That was much needed after a long day of travel. Great touch!

Hope we get a chance to stay again soon.

Perfectly situated, perfectly appointed and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Honolulu at this property. It's very centrally located with plenty of shopping, dining, easy access to the beach, excellent view of Waikiki, etc. We were welcomed with chocolates and wine - we couldn't have had better hosts. There were a couple of minor maintenance items and they were addressed immediately. The place is perfect for a couple, more than 2 adults might be a little tight, but for us it couldn't have worked out better. One note: if you have a vehicle, valet parking is $28/day...unlimited in/out, but we weren't necessarily expecting that. Highly recommend this location for your trip to Waikiki!

Lovely condo with a big balcony facing the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the condo and it's location close to everything.

Patricia was a gracious host. And when we had a small problem with the fridge, she quickly looked after it.

Would definitely recommend it!

Great view and free shows!

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend and I spent a week here which was not nearly long enough! The view from the terrace was great to see the beach, lagoon, Hilton's hula show and the fireworks. The unit had everything we needed - and more. Patricia was a responsive and gracious host replying promptly to all of our requests. The only thing I'd point out to another is that the featured view is only from the terrace - not from inside. the property is on the marina and only a short walk to the beach and other amenities - many of which were in the building which had a homey comfortable feel. We did have a bit of a bait and switch from onsite concierge so do your homework on that front. I'd stay here again and loved the location, amenities and value.

Nice condo, good view

  • 4 of 5

My wife and i stayed in this unit for a week for our 35th wedding anniversary. It has a good view of the lagoon and the pool areas. Used the pool frequently and it was nice.

Just as glorious 40 years later!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I originally stayed at the Ilikai for a month in May of 1977 while performing with the Ice Capades at Blaisdell Center. While there my husband purposed and we were married in December of the same year. Since then we've been saying we would go back to Hawaii to celebrate our anniversary. We just returned from 9 days of heaven and couldn't have been more comfortable in Patricia's condo. Patricia was great to work with and her response time was within hours, where as some owners response time could be days. We really enjoyed the view of the surfers and the Friday night firework show from the lanai and there were plenty of beach towels and boogie boards to use at one of the amazing beaches around the island. We also really liked the convenience of the key pad lock system, it's great not having to keep up with a room key! The Ilikai is centrally located in Waikiki and is a great place to stay while exploring the beauty of Ohau. I would highly recommend the Ilikai and being a guest of Patricia's in condo 1128!
