Photos and Description of this holiday condo in Waikiki - Ilikai Hotel #402
High quality condo w/ 1 Bedroom, balcony & full kitchen
Aloha and thank you, for considering our 2013 remodeled Ilikai Hotel/Condo (Unit 402) in the heart of Waikiki. Our remodeling includes new hardwood flooring, new closet system, and wall separating the living room and bedroom. The main pic you see is taken directly from our lanai (balcony). The lagoon and beach is next to the yacht harbor on the left side. We’ve stayed at many other wonderful rental vacation homes and want to make sure your Hawaii experience is just as wonderful or more!
Our newly renovated contemporary style condo is a large 620sqft 1-Bedroom Condo (including balcony/lanai which is about 120sqft) and can accommodate up to 4 people with a comfy Cal-king size pillow top bed and a double-size sofa bed. (A complimentary twin-size mattress and baby crib are available upon request.) The bedroom is separated from the living room by a wall and a curtain on each side of the wall (for ease of access to the bathroom and balcony). For some privacy, the sofa bed is situated directly behind the wall. Pillows, blanket and fresh 100% cotton linen provided for the sofa bed.
The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with a granite counter, full size refrigerator, glass top stove & oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, utensils, and more. The bathroom has a shower stall w/ granite walls. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and a hair dryer are available. And we've just recently installed new wood flooring in 2013.
Our large 120 sq ft lanai (balcony) has a nice outdoor dining table set for 4 people to enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean at every meal. There are also 2 beach chairs, cooler and a boogie board stored in the lanai for guests use. Beach towels are also provided.
The condo also includes all the smaller finer things that will make your stay a complete comfort like a CELL Phone w/ free calls anywhere in the US, 40” LCD flat screen TV in the living room, cable TV, DVD/blue-ray player, free WIFI hi-speed internet (room & lobby), bath & beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, pillows, cotton linen, blanket, and of course, air conditioning. Laundry facility is just down the hallway. Our unit is located on the yacht harbor side of the hotel AND has a direct view of the harbor, ocean and sunset.
There is parking on the streets and valet parking. Street parking is directly behind the building. On one side next to the lagoon is 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 service for a 24hr period is $30 with unlimited in and out privileges.
If you have a large number of people in your group, we do have 2 additional units inside the Ilikai Hotel. Both units #1436 & #1630 are located on the Lagoon side and also have ocean view plus Friday night fireworks.
***ABOUT THE ILIKAI***
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 at least a 4 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.

Why Phi Nguyen chose Waikiki
To have a place for our friends and families to visit us. We want all our guests to get the best Waikiki experience, so what better than a beach front location with all the essential amenities and at a great price. It doesn't get much better than the famous Ilikai Hotel.
What makes this condo unique
Modern, stylish, spacious, clean, beach front and very affordable. A great value for Hawaii!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you, for everything! We had a great time and had an enjoyable experience here.
We went to Yanagi at your recommendation and loved the sashimi. However, Nico's at Pier 38 has gone upscale and lost its appeal and the food wasn't that great.
We had a blast at Shark's Cove! I think it had the most fish variety compared to a few other snorkeling spots that we went to.
