  • Best vacation in years

    "Ok, it was really our first vacation in years but it was quite perfect. Finding the Ilikai and getting checked in was easy. The Ilikai is conveniently located to the lagoon and beach, which was my primary purpose for visiting. The condo was clean and comfortable. We were there for 2 weeks and rented a car to explore the island. Valet parking at The Ilikai was a nice perk and worth the $ to us. The kitchen has everything you need to cook. We stocked up on groceries when we arrived and ate the majority of our meals there. I miss our breakfasts on the Lanai with the near daily rainbow and watching all the activities on the water. Our favorite day trips/activities were: the Atlantis submarine, downhill biking with Bike Hawaii, Kualoa Ranch ATVs and Secret Beach, Breakout Waikiki, Ko Olina Lagoons, trips to Haleiwa (don't miss the food trucks), and of course lots and lots of lounging on the beach and swimming in the ocean. Rob was very kind and flexible with our reservation request. We would not hesitate to book here again."

  • Good Accomodation!

    "We spent 1 month in Elina's Moana Studio and everything was very nice! The house is clean and the kitchen is fully equipped (we cooked every night). The location is good, we were close to the beach (5 minutes) and at walking distance from Waikiki and Ala Moana Shopping center. It's definitely worth booking if you're looking for a small,affordable and clean house in Waikiki!"

  • Great house with caveats

    "We can confirm the general positive experience other reviewers had, but want to add some additional impressions: + Location in quaint Waimanalo is perfect. Right on the beach as described by others -- could not be nicer from that perspective + Washer/dryer are pretty new and detergents etc. are provided to guests (but both are outside in a closet) + Kitchen appliances etc. are all in good condition and some are newish (toaster broke during our stay, and Christine replaced it immediately) + The second bedroom upstairs does not have a door, it's more a loft situation (Christine mentioned that to me on the phone, so I was not surprised, but it’s not clear from the pictures/description at all). Couple that stayed up there was quite hot despite ocean breeze and fans. + Air conditioning is only in the smaller bedroom downstairs (small unit not strong enough to cool anything beyond the room) + Access to the main bathroom is actually outside of the house (adjacent to main door though) and has no tub, but a huge shower + We had plenty of bugs (mostly ants, geckos, but also a few roaches and centipedes) inside the house. Kind of expected in a tropics location so close to the beach, but feel like there could be done more to control for it (we did not mention it to Christine, because we did not want to have a treatment done with all of us in the house, but she probably would have arranged something) + Christine was *very* difficult to reach prior to our stay, and the calendar on HomeAway was not up-to-date. We had to change plans because of this, unfortunately. Being used to instant confirmations, we were quite nervous about this place being confirmed in time (deposit check need to be mailed). + The house is overall in an okay condition – feels a bit rundown and things need touchups here and there (e.g. some locks are difficult to operate, walls are dirty etc., trashcans rusty etc.). + They have a small backhouse on the property that one can rent in addition for a small fee (I think she said $50/night or so), but we did not and hence can’t comment on that (they won’t rent it out during main house stays) + Internet worked great and was very fast + There are some homeless people around Waimanalo beach (tents by the official beach park) that sometimes walk around the beach. We never felt unsafe in any way, but made sure to lock the house and arm the alarm system whenever we left."

  • An Island Hideaway

    "A hidden treasure sure to appeal to all ages, gathering for a respite from a Winter's blanket of snow! Located well within a thirty minute drive from most attractions, such as Sea Life Park and Whole Foods! Once your provisions are well stocked, there is really no point in ever having to leave!"
