About Minh Le

Since 2007, I came to Hawaii on vacation and have been coming back every year. I purchased my condo because I fell in love with Hawaii and also with the Ilikai Marina. Unfortunately, I am only able to spend a few weeks out of the year here because of my work, so I rent it out to share it with you. After your stay, I hope you will enjoy the charm of Hawaii as much as I do and come back again soon.

Minh Le purchased this condo in 2014

Why Minh Le chose Waikiki

Before I bought my studio in the Ilikai Marina, I had been looking for a small condo in Hawaii for the past 4 years. I can say, even though it was a long wait, I am very happy with my decision to buy my condo.

Anyone who knows the condo market in Waikiki will tell you that most of the condos here are old and dilapidated. While the Ilikai Marina is not the newest of buildings, it is well maintained and very clean. Also the property has recently beeen fully renovated, tile floors, granite counter tops, with all new furnishings.

Most hotel rooms can be small and claustrophobic; this studio has plenty of room, even for a few people. I eat out a lot, and in this case I can walk downstairs without leaving the building and enjoy dinner at some of my favorite seafood restaurants.When I don't feel like eating out, I have a kitchen and other appliances at my disposal and can whip up a meal. It has all the comforts of home but in fabulous Waikiki.

The location is extremely convenient. The Ilikai Marina is situated at the end of Waikiki, near the Waikiki & Honolulu Yacht Clubs, within walking distance to everything in Waikiki and the Ala Moana Mall. You get get to the beach or Hilton Lagoon without crossing any roads.For surfers, there are good surfing spots right around the corner. Also great night life all around for people in search of good music, drinks or just itching to get their dance on.

What makes this condo unique

Other than some of the things that I mentioned above, I feel the location is extremely unique. The building faces a marina and the ocean. I enjoy coming outside when the sun begins to set over the yachts docked in the marina and just chill with a beer in hand. Also, I can walk a few hundred yards to the nearest beach and take a quick dip in the ocean.

Regarding the unit, it has all new appliances and furnishings, ultra high speed internet, with kitchen and full bathroom. Washers & Dryers are located on the floor below. With an overpass connecting the Ilikai Marina to the Modern and Ilikai Hotels. Restaurants and Clubs located on the lower floor and across the street.

Very nice and convenient w/ a reasonable price

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here for 9 days. Pros: Everything are close. Beach, mall, restaurants and grocery. The parking is $20/day in the parking building but there is cheaper parking outside. The condo is clean and complete: cooking utensils, pillows, sheets, towels, iron, vacuum, microwave, tv,internet, a/c, swimming gears, picnic mats, hangers, baby stroller etc. The laundry is just 1 floor above the unit. $2 each load. The trash shoot is at the end of the hallway. Cons: there is a leak under the sink in the bathroom; the shower head is rusty. and the sliding door to lanai is very hard to slide. But minh and his friend are always very accomodating/helpful when we have concerns. Overall, we love it. Very cozy and convenient. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Great value, great location

  • 4 of 5

This property was everything I needed for my stay. The kitchen was fully stocked with all necessary kitchen needs. Bed super comfy! Bathtub could use a little renovation though.

Conveniently located for my stay. A lot of noise on Friday and Saturday nights can be heard in this unit from the outside parking garage - take earplugs and you'll be fine.

Overall it was excellent for all my vacation needs! Would stay here again!

Good location but problems

  • 2 of 5

The location is excellent, right at the Marina close to Waikiki Beach. The unit did not have the beach chairs as shown in photo. Did not have the essentials if you want to cook, ie. no pots, only frying pan. Biggest complaint is there is a nightclub at the Ilikai Marina Condos just outside the unit, noise, yelling from Midnight - 4: 00 a.m. on Thursday, Friday Saturday and Sunday. You will not sleep well as the noise is unbearable.
