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 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.

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 South Oahu

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 unit was nice for a city view. The Lani was great. Appliances and kitchen supplies very good.

  • 3 of 5

After emailing the owner, I saw his personal phone number, so I called about my concern that none of the inside furniture was good for any type of back support. The owner was called within three days of our three week stay. The owner was very polite and was sympathetic to my concern. This was not only inside furniture that supplied no back support, it was also of very low quality. The couch was a very uncomfortable futon. My initial belief of the owners genuine concern turned out to be false. In conversation he spoke of getting other furniture, but, he made no attempt to call or come by after my initial call. There was a big disconnect between his words and his actions.

Owner's Response: Well, not sure how to respond to this. We're glad that our guests still enjoyed their stay. Greg did call to state that he has serious neck issues and that the futon couch provided no neck support. Greg did request that we purchase a regular sofa, although he stated that one of the chairs would work for him. We sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding. Best - Glenda & Tom

Wonderful property owners with a wonderful condo!

The condo was more than one could expect, especially at the very reasonable rate. Thomas and Glenda made my business trip that much more enjoyable. Thank you.

Nice to be in this location

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed are stay at this condo. clean easy access to everything and the location was super for us. We attended a convention all weekend at the Hawaiian Hilton Village which was a 5 min walk at half the price of the hotel site rate. We cooked our own meals and enjoyed our time in the condo. Thank you.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Overall this condo was just what we were looking for. The location was great and although it doesn't face the water, the city skyline is just as beautiful. I admit that I am picky when it comes to cleanliness and this condo was clean. The air-conditioning was working very well and it was appreciated! We contacted Thomas a few times with general questions and he got back to us quickly. The only downside to the property is the pool, not a big deal to us, but it was smaller and there isn't any shade. A very nice addition was that Netflix was available on the TV and we didn't even have to sign in! We would recommend this condo!

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience staying in a VRBO and we were thoroughly impressed! It was everything we had hoped for and more! The description on the website was exactly as we found it when we entered this beautiful (and very clean!) condo. It was exceptional with every amenity you could want, from the well equipped kitchen to the balcony with a terrific view of Ala Moana Blvd. (And very quiet at night, which we really appreciated!) It was also located within walking distance of shopping and restaurants (we didn't rent a car for this part of our vacation); but we also enjoyed Cinnamon's, located in the Ilikai...great food and atmosphere! Thomas and Glenda were wonderful hosts, and even mailed our cell phone charger to us when we left it in the room. We certainly are looking forward to staying here on our next visit. Thank you so much for a wonderful three days in your beautiful condo!
