Better than the photos!
The renovations are great, the amenities and location of the Ilikai are awesome but the best part was the overall comfortability of this suite - it shows how much the owners care about their guests' stay.
From the moment we walked in through the door on a hot afternoon, we knew we were going to have a great stay - we would have a comfortable place to retreat to after long days exploring the island of Oahu. The condo was CLEAN! and when I say clean, I mean ULTRA clean.. You couldn't find a grain of sand in the entire apartment even if you tried. We were greeted with a magnificent breeze coming through the lanai sliding doors and waiting for us on the kitchen counter was a thoughtful welcome note and a binder full of useful information that the property owners put together themselves. The thought and care that Jovanka and Darko put into making sure their guests have a comfortable stay is top notch. Let me break it down:
With 2 young girls (2.5 years and 8 month old) we often found ourselves needing things that we usually take for granted at home, asking the question, "I wonder if they have a__________ in the kitchen/suite". Let me fill in the blank with some of the things that brought a smile to our faces every time:
- Fully stocked kitchen - brand new appliances, measuring cups, a can opener, bottle openers, salad spinner, salad utensils, a very good quality knife block with a variety of essential knives, near-new pots/pans including a baking pan, wine glasses, champagne glasses, quality plates/bowls, eating utensils, cleaning material for the quick spill cleanup (lysol, windex, sponges) and dishwasher soap! The list goes on... you will not need to go out and buy anything other than the food you want to make.
- 2 great quality beach-chairs, beach umbrella, 4 large beach towels, comfy lanai chair and patio table/chair set where we had dinner and watched the beautiful firework display on Friday night... you have a direct line of site on the fireworks which is just as good, if not better, than going down to the beach to see them.
- Netflix on the SmartTV in the living room was great with the kids...
And the one or two times we did need something, we called Jovanka and were able to get what we needed immediately. They were even nice enough to come by and drop off a few supplies that we had requested!
We would love to stay here again - Thank you Jovanka and Darko for your impeccable attention to detail. Your place is perfect.
