About Sheryl Vuillemot

Our children have gone off to college and we started looking at properties for fun. We surf right out in front of the Hilton Lagoon and love being in this area. We came across this incredible unit on the Diamond Head corner of the Ilikai Marina that has expansive views of our favorite Surf Spots, Fireworks on Fridays and the Ala Wai Marina to Ala Moana Beach. We fell in love with the view and convenient location! I have always wanted to decorate with a beach theme! I have found myself excited about filling this unit with matching fun beach themed decor and furnishings that have fulfilled my dream along with, my passion for cooking so, supplying a gourmet kitchen, filled with all my favorite cooking supplies to make any and all my favorite dishes!

Sheryl Vuillemot purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Sheryl Vuillemot chose Waikiki

The view of fireworks every Friday looking out towards Diamond Head are fabulous! There is easy public transportation as well as easy parking when renting a car. I include parking with the unit. The normal cost to park is $20 per day or $115 per month so this is a wonderful ammenity! Unit is within walking distance to Ala Moana Shopping Center and all of Waikiki.

Whenever we walk inside this unit - we feel relaxed and ready to be on vacation. Unfortunately, we live here and it's only temporary for us. But it always feels fantastic! I decorated as if I was decorating my own home and I love being there!

Better photos and fireworks photos coming soon!

What makes this apartment unique

We are in the most convenient llocation on the beginning of Waikiki to come and go, walking, driving or on our public transportation to all the island has to offer.

I provide starter Kona Peaberry Coffee for your pleasure!

Fabulous! Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome place! It felt like it was my own home from the time I stepped foot into the condo until the time I left. Very high end appliances and cookware. Beach chairs (Tommy Bahama), beach towels, umbrellas and even a roller cooler! This made our afternoon at the north shore so pleasant. Because it's a corner unit the views are panoramic. Oh, and the Friday night fireworks? Amazing.....

Sheryl was so kind and happy to share her Hawaiian paradise and catered to my every need (which there wasn't any because everything you could possibly imagine was there for me!).

I've stayed in many VRBOs and this is the best yet! Can't wait to return!

Wish this was our home!

  • 5 of 5

Sheryl was a pleasure to work with! She called us before our arrival in case we had questions and provided us with additional information about the area and the condo. The minute we walked into this home we were blown away by the view! We loved to watch the fireworks the Hilton set off each Friday, but we were extra lucky in that our stay was during the holidays because the marina's boats were festively lit and the fireworks displays on New Year's Eve were spectacular! The ability to view the boats leaving/arriving in the harbor, the cruise ships sailing into the pier, and the ABSOLUTE stunning sunrises/sunsets is worth every penny! The condo is COMPLETELY stocked for you! We were so touched to see a bowl with fresh pineapple, papaya and bananas! And, we loved the fresh cut bird of paradise floral arrangement. Need coffee for the first morning? Check! This condo has a Keurig with multiple flavors for you. Need a regular coffee with sugar packets? Check! Need multiple towels? Check! In fact, this place had EVERYTHING you could possibly need! And, location is everything with this place. We easily walked to Ala Moana center multiple times and used our supplied Beach Umbrella and Tommy Bahama chairs to enjoy the beach that is, again, within walking distance. Sheryl's decorating style is beachy without being tacky. We felt like we were staying in a home, not a sterile hotel. It's difficult to have decorations without some dust, but this place was immaculate! Whoever cleans this place is good at ensuring that you can't tell there were previous occupants and everything placed is there for a reason. We can't wait to come back! Mahalo Sheryl for your warm hospitality!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. Loved especially the views. Being a corner unit it had grand views of the ocean from everywhere. Plenty of good eating places within walking distance. Bus stop just around the corner. November was a bit cooler that I would have liked, and the water was a bit cool. Next time I would come in a warmer month. But, that's just because I like it hot. Waikiki might be more crowded in another season, but it was amazingly uncrowded in November/December. The condo was just as advertised. Condo was clean and comfortable. I received back my security deposit promptly.

Great location & fabulous views

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is beautifully located on a high corner of the building offering spectacular views on the marina, Waikiki and out to sea. It is nicely equipped and features a "seaside" theme throughout with a vast collection of seashells, mermaids and all things blue, green and beachie.

Downsides: the bed is a painful trip hazard given its wide, low timber surround; there was nowhere to unpack as every cupboard and drawer was jam packed full of spare linen, beach chairs, body boards and other stuff; the kitchen had every appliance except a kettle; and the bedroom window was locked shut. The aircon was efficient and other windows opened but it would have been nice to open up the apartment fully to the fresh air. All that said, it's a great place and the owner, Sheryl, was extremely kind and considerate.

Everything You'll Need

Sheryl's apartment is great! It is very well equipped, the location and views are stunning. Communication with Sheryl is excellent and accessing the apartment was easy. My husband and I stayed here for five nights and we were very comfortable. We would highly recommend staying here.
