About the property

Come join us in beautiful Hawaii. We invite you to enjoy our high-rise abode.

Aloha and Welcome to our Hawaiian paradise getaway! Located at the Historic oceanfront 'Ilikai Hotel' at the entrance to Waikiki. On the 19th floor, this is an amazing one bedroom unit, offering luxury, style and comfort.

This lovely unit is located in the iconic Ilikai Hotel, made famous in the opening credits of the original Hawaii Five-O TV program. It has stunning city skyline and mountain views, which can be enjoyed with a Mai Tai (+ mini-umbrella) from the spacious living area and balcony. The unit was renovated in March of 2014 and offers a full gourmet kitchen with all the amenities of home.

Smoking and/or vaping are NOT allowed inside the condo or on the condo balcony/lanai.

This special Studio condo is 620 sq ft in size (which includes a 120 sq ft balcony) and can accommodate up to 4 adults. The whisper quiet state-of-the-art split A/C keeps you cool on those warm Hawaiian nights. The bedroom features a comfortable king size bed with soft cotton sheets in the bedroom and a double-size sofa bed in the living room. The bedroom is separated from the living room by sliding panels. The four panel sliding door allows for flexibility with the wall dividing the bedroom and living room. You can have it open on one side or the other, have a center dividing wall that is open on both sides of the sofa, or close it off completely for privacy. Pillows, blanket and fresh linen are provided for the sofa bed.

The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with a granite countertop, contemporary white cabinets with slow close drawers, full size refrigerator, smooth top electric range, microwave, stainless steel appliances, including dishwasher, under cabinet lighting, and pendant lights above the cooktop. Also included: toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, utensils and more...

The brightly lit bathroom sports a granite counter-top and has a sliding glass shower door. Hair dryer is mounted on the wall. Body wash, shampoo, conditioner and fresh towels are provided.

The balcony has a woven wicker seating group with 2 chairs, 2 ottomans and a side table. Perfect for viewing the city lights while sipping beverages. The chairs/ottoman have sunbrella fabric cushions.

The condo includes all the smaller finer things that will make your stay a enjoyable like a Smart 40” LCD flat screen TV in the living room, cable TV, Netflix, free WI FI hi-speed internet (WI FI is also available in the lobby), beach towels, and air-conditioning. The coin-operated laundry facility is just down the hallway. And one of the best features is that our unit is located on the cool side of the hotel AND has a direct view of the moon rising during the right time of the month!

Since the condo is within walking distance of many amenities (Beach, restaurants, marina, etc.) and tours will often include pickup as part of their package; Many people choose to get a rental car for only part of their stay...

Parking is available via the valet or on the streets near the Ilikai. Street parking is directly behind the building. The side next to the lagoon offers free parking from 4:30am to 10:30pm. On the other side is a large lot with price ranging from $1/hr to $6 for 10hrs. Valet parking is $30/day and includes unlimited in & out privileges.


When you watch the classic Hawaii Five-O TV show, there’s a shot of Jack Lord on a balcony of a hotel. Yup, you guess right. It’s the Ilikai! And instantly, the Ilikai became a landmark in the heart of Waikiki. This lady has been around since the 60’s but has been kept up very well with a recent renovated lobby, earthly toned hallways, and a clean line swimming pool with towel service. Definitely a 4.5 star rated hotel. There are also various shops on the ground floor, a romantic Italian restaurant on the top floor, and across the lobby is the internationally renowned Iron Chef Morimoto’s Japanese fusion restaurant.

Make sure to catch the Ilikai's Tiki Torch lighting ceremony at sunset and free Hawaiian music Fridays and Sundays in the Ilikai courtyard!

About Thomas Giguere

We've lived in Hawaii for 25 years, love it, and raised both of our girls in the islands. Although we've been here for quite a while, we're still exploring and learning new things about our island home.

Thomas Giguere purchased this condo in 2015

Why Thomas Giguere chose Waikiki

We looked everywhere when selecting our vacation home, and ultimately decided on the Waikiki area. Always bustling with activity, but the area still has quiet spots where we like to go to relax.

What makes this condo unique

We love the warm tropical nights, perfect for a walk or peaceful nights sleep.

Ono Oasis in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

ONO means GOOD in Hawaiian; if I knew a Hawaiian word for EXCELLENT, I would use it to describe this condo. My husband and I have been to the Islands many times in the last 40 years, and are always delighted to find a bargain - but it has to be clean and comfortable. This condo was all that, plus has a great location. Three great things about the condo: kitchen is great, with soft-close cabinets, and everything we needed for breakfasts and lunches there; the only "extraneous" addition to the light and simple decor is a beautifully carved frieze above the sliding doors that separate the bedroom from the main area; and there was NO NOISE from either side, nor above nor below, of flushing toilets or TV's, which is common in hotels. A 4th great thing: the Ilikai itself features comfortable, unpretentious Hawaiian hospitality, with everything a person needs right there. City noise on the lanai seemed excessive at first, but became "white noise" very soon, and was no problem at all when the doors were closed. Fifth, sixth, and seventh great things: great internet connection; responsive host (I had misplaced the check-out instructions); and super-simple check-out (basically, lock the doors - just like home!). We'd be pleased to stay in this condo again, any time. PS: The place is super clean!!!!

The Most Accommodating Rental In Waikiki

  • 4 of 5

In the past, I would have never rented in this area thinking it was too far from the action. Well, it wasn't too far away and I'm so glad we rented here. It was awesome! This unit provides all the necessities, personal products & stocked kitchen. If you feel like cooking on vacation just bring the food. The bed was so comfortable it has us searching for a similar mattress for home. Some reviews mention the street noise but I found it to be much quieter than down near Waikiki beach. The only changes I would make if I lived in this unit are:

Sofa sleeper instead of futon

Padded counter stools (preferably with backs)

Dresser for the bedroom

Other than those minor preferences, it was one of the best stays ever! Thank you, Thomas & Glenda, I hope to return one day.

Tropical paradise, the condo had everything we needed for three guests to enjoy a week stay

  • 5 of 5

This unit had everything needed, kitchen, dishes, pots, pans, towels, beach towels, etc. The towels were new and incredibly fluffy! Bedding was clean and ample, unit is well decorated and everything works great. Beautiful view to the Waikiki strip and lush mountains from the spacious lanai. We highly recommend, and will definitely stay here again when we come back.

Great city views on the balcony. We didn’t spend most of the time in the room but it has everything you need! The location was near shops, beach and restaurants. I would stay here again in the near future. Thanks for being prompt and very easy to communicate with. Mahalo🌺
