About the property

Stay at the iconic Ilikai Hotel Condos. Be close to the beach and shopping!

The unit itself is beautifully remodeled. It is warm, inviting, luxurious and still has the island feel while being completely updated. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and has under counter subzero unit as well as a dishwasher and garbage disposal. There is one very comfortable queen sized bed and lots of closet space. Bar seating at the kitchen counter allows for a nice eating area. The couch pulls out to be a bed for additional guests. The lanai is huge with a nice lounge chair as well as an outdoor table and chairs with plenty of space to keep surfboards.

Just down the hall is the laundry room with self service washer and driers. On the ground floor there is a swimming pool (with towels!), the Ilikai Restaurant and Bar, a convenience store, hair salon, packing/shipping store and coffee shop. There is also access to the Modern Hotel which hosts the world famous Morimoto Restaurant (you have to try the Loco Moto!) as well as the super chic Library Bar.

Take the path from the ground floor out the back of the hotel to Duke's Lagoon and Waikiki Beach. You can rent umbrellas (or bring your own!), arrange for surf lessons or take a nice walk all the way down the beach to the other end of Waikiki.

About Lena Lionetti

My name is Lena and this is my families condo. I grew up vacationing in Honolulu with my parents, three siblings and whoever else we brought to tag along. I am from San Francisco and continue to vacation in Waikiki with my husband.

Lena Lionetti purchased this condo in 2001

Why Lena Lionetti chose Waikiki

My parents purchased the condo at the Ilikai because of its location to the beach, mall and easy access to freeways. We were able to travel around the island easily or stay in Waikiki and have an easy routine of going to the beach everyday. Being at the Ilikai has allowed for my family to invite other friends and families to join our vacations because of the availability in hotel rooms or other condos to rent. It's location allowed all of us to pair up and do what we want for the day and still gather for surfing or beach activities.

What makes this condo unique

The Ilikai is an iconic landmark. It is recognized by everyone on the island as well as many travelers around the world.

Great little studio apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Ilikia studio is in a great location, close to the beach, grocery store, mall. The unit itself is very nice, had everything we needed. I was concerned that there was no oven, but having the crockpot made dinners in, so easy. Some reviews said, the unit did not have a blow dryer or beach towels, both were in the unit. Also some reported that noise was an issue, yes, when sliders were open, you could hear traffic, but once sliders were closed it was very quiet.

We had a small water issue in the unit, while we were there, and it was handled so quickly, by the management company. Great job!

The hotel itself has had a recent Reno, and looks great. The pools were very nice and having the option of a pool in both sun and shade was great.

My husband and I walk everywhere in Waikiki, our everyday walk route was walking along the canal to Diamond Head Road, around Diamond Head and back along the beach.

Always a great vacation!

Comfortable and well equipped condo in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in a great location. The condo was clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The mattress on the bed as well as the pull-out sofa were the best. This is the first time my husband has stayed somewhere and not complained about the mattress. We would stay here again.

Spring break holiday

  • 4 of 5

Likely the best supplied kitchen we have ever rented

Wish the door had a key pad and not a card swiper . Twice in ten days one of our group was stranded in the hallway waiting for a key. Also, no clear direction on how to get fresh towels.

Overall, would recommend it to others

Great location, and perfect little condo!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay! The ilikai is a nice resort perfectly situated in Waikiki! The condo is clean and is laid out well! No complaints at all! Also, a few can use the resorts all around you (pools, restaurants etc), also if you are on the move you can park your car on the lot by the beach for a $1 an hour. We saved a ton since we were always exploring during the day. Ilikai is a great place to wind down with good food on site, and frequently free entertainment. Thanks again for a great stay!

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry you were disappointed with the decor in our unit. We chose to make it more of a homey feel versus the more high end modern designs some of the other units in the ilikai have.

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and also our first time at Ilikai. We absolutely loved it , we actually extended our stay! This unit is a perfect location to the beach, stores and restaurants.

We prefer this side of Waikiki than the diamond head side, so this unit was prime.

The unit itself is very homey, we had a group of people stay in other units here at ilikai and our condo felt the most like home. It has a nice kitchen stocked with pots , pans, cutlery, toaster, coffee maker, and even a crock pot. The view of the city is wonderful, and I found the noise to be nothing of burden. I know other reviews commented that it was too loud..? When you have the door open , yes.. you can hear the city, but you're in the city! When the door is closed it's quiet. The bed is cozy and comfy! One thing this place needs is a dust pan for the broom since sand is a large factor from having beach days. There is 1 beach mat , but no boogie boards or floaties ,(we left 2 lime green bed floaties) Our other guests had boogies boards, umbrellas, floaties and sand chairs. I'm not sure if those were from previous guests that left them or what. Oh yes, there is no blow dryer- which is another thing this unit could use. Other than that I highly recommend this unit..Lena is very quick with responses which I find helpful.

Side note- you check In at Marina Hawaii Vacations NOT the ilikai front desk.

Also, our AC stopped working on the 2nd to last night of our stay, I contacted Marina Hawaii Vacations and they sent someone up immediately to fix it, we ended up having a portable AC for one night , then a whole new AC installed the last day (the next day) of our trip. So grateful They were on it!

The Ilikai Hotel Condo's is one of the best locations in all of Waikiki. It is located at the very West end of the beach by Duke's Lagoon and the Marina. There are a handful of intermediate and advanced surf spots just steps away from the building. Besides the world famous beach, the Ala Moana Shopping center is located a short walk from the Ilikai, where you can find just about every major retail store and plenty of restaurants ranging from the food court to fine dinning.
