MAHALO!

Everyone on Oahu knows the Ilikai Marina; ask any kama'aina (local). The Pink Plumeria is right at the center of action for the Ala Wai (Ala Moana) boat harbor and beach park, and a hundred other magical points of interest, yet is remarkably pleasant, convenient, and luxurious. At 679 sq. ft., this condo is considered large by Waikiki oceanfront standards.

Picture yourself watching the outrigger canoe practices, cheering on world-class surfers, or toasting the blazing sunset with your mai tai from our completely refurbished and updated luxury condominium. Or maybe marveling at the Friday night fireworks at the Hilton from one of the best vistas in town. Serene, quiet, ocean front and marina-front living with a 180 degree ocean and marina view. A true one-bedroom unit, a large sliding door closes to separate the living room from the bedroom, but can be open to make the condo look and feel bigger.

Our unit is at the more tranquil Ewa end of Waikiki, yet mere minutes from Ala Moana Mall, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Ft. Derussy, Magic Island, Duke's, and 100 other tropical destinations, especially the sparkling white sands of Waikiki - the 'funnest' beach in the world!

Don't feel like cooking? Three 'Best in Honolulu' restaurants are within a one-minute walk: the Chart House, Morimoto's (The Iron Chef), and Sarento's Top of the 'I.' Outback Steakhouse, Red Lobster, and the Harbor Pub are also less than a one-minute walk away. On your way to the beach, stop off at Canoe's Ilikai Bar and Grill world famous restaurant and bar for excellent food, drinks, and 'local kine' hula and music. All this within a one-minute walk.

Locals love the look and feel of the Ilikai Marina, and you will too. The warm feeling of aloha will gently soothe your cares as you relax into the local kine lifestyle. Many of our guests don't even bother to rent a car; 'The Bus' is consistently rated the best public transportation system in the USA.

There is a public parking garage next to to our building, and parking is currently $20 per day. Currently, guests may purchase a two-month parking pass for $255. If you use the attached parking garage, you will be able to walk directly from your car to our unit; no elevator ride or stairs to climb with your luggage or groceries. There is also hourly public parking in front of our building and surrounding the marina. The above rates are subject to change.

We also feature an inside-the-unit washer and dryer, (please contact owner if you wish to use please, as the City Code has made some changes necessary ), big screen TV, and quiet central air conditioning! Updated furniture, appliances, fixtures, and decorating. Yes, we love it! You will too! No bait and switch on these photos. EVERY PHOTO TAKEN BY US OF THIS EXACT CONDO!

About Rex Walters

Aloha Ka Kou! E Komo Mai! Aloha to all and welcome! It is our pleasure to offer you one of the finer one bedroom ocean front condos in the Waikiki area. Just a little about us: I am a former University professor, small business owner, and management consultant for many years. Currently I am a business broker specializing in helping people buy or sell their smaller businesses the Santa Cruz, CA, USA area.

My wife lived on Oahu in Lanikai and Kailua for many years, and was a successful chiropractor in Kailua. She is now a chiropractor practicing in the Santa Cruz, CA. Although she still considers herself a novice, she loves dancing and performing hula shows with her halau (hula school) Te Hau Nui in Santa Cruz.

Rex Walters purchased this condo in 2006

Why Rex Walters chose Oahu

Both my wife and I love the Hawaiian people, the culture, and the Hawaiian oceansports. We have both been avid outrigger paddlers and racers for many years. I have been surfing since I was 4 years old. We get into the water whenever we can...which is never enough of course! Part of our commitment to Hawaii is to cherish and respect our opportunity to own a condo in the Land of Aloha.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with our condo as soon as we saw it. It is in one of the most laid back areas of Waikiki, and is right next to where my wife's father worked at the old Kaiser Hospital for many years. He loved this neighborhood and lived in it for years.

Our condo is very nicely appointed, upscale, refurbished throughout, and is wonderful for those of you looking for a little less intensity with a little more of the local-kine feel of the neighborhood. Our proximity to the Hilton gives us the same beach and play opportunities, at

much less cost.

MAHALO NUI A ME A HUI HOU!

Top notch all the way!

If you read all of the reviews you'll notice several common threads...a

beautifully located and maintained condo and what a pleasure it was to deal

with Rex and Erica, the owners, and Lila, their lovely and knowledgeable

property manager. This was our first time renting a privately owned condo

and we couldn't concur more whole heartedly...a fantastic place to stay in an

amazing vacation destination! Huge thanks to Rex and Erica and especially

Lila, the perfect hostess!

JUST PARADISE

A condo to recommend!

I attended a language school in Honolulu last year from June to mid August. For this reason, I looked for a small apartment in the area of Waikiki and I fortunately found the beautiful and perfectly located Condo Pink Plumeria.

The owners, Erica and Rex Walters, personally took care of all contractual and financial matters, and I had personal Email and telephone contact with them, which I very, very appreciated.

From the Condo you have a fantastic view directly to the marina of Honolulu. Moreover, during an absolutely beautiful beach walk which takes about 20 minutes, you pass the Hilton lagoon (every Friday evening fireworks!) and the army beach to the Waikiki beach. On the way, you will also pass the barefoot beach Bar, the world-famous Duke’s, and the beautiful Hotel Moana Surfrider called the First Lady (I highly recommend the Surfer-Mai-Tai). If you follow the beach walk, the barefoot coffee can be highly recommended as well. Every Friday and Saturday there is music and a BBQ.

The condo is on the 5th floor of an apartment house with an elevator. It is very nice and beautifully furnished with an open kitchen, very comfortable bed, nice bathroom and very comfortable living room.

In the immediate vicinity, there are countless food and shopping opportunities (eg the famous Ala Moana shopping center) which can be reached on foot or by bus.

I found this condo so great that I booked it again this year for another nine weeks over the summer.

I felt like I was home again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Nathalie! We were so very happy to have you as a guest both times. We so very much appreciate it when a guest notices the effort and attention we put into our condo. We also very much enjoyed the contacts via phone, email, and pictures we had with you both before and after your stay. We know you came from half way around the world, and we are so very pleased it worked out so well for you. We could tell you had a wonderful time by the photos you shared with us. We hope you can stay with us again in the future, as you were a great guest, and are always welcome back. Mahalo nui a me a hui hou! Erica and Rex

Beautiful, clean ocean front condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Pink Plumeria and enjoyed our stay in every way. Rex and Erica were great to work with. The condo is very clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable. The view of the Marina and ocean was a real plus and we enjoyed it so much. We always found a parking place on the same level as the condo, which made it so convenient. It sure was easy to enter and leave the condo with the keypad. They have a great property manager who is very available is needed. We hope to come back again soon! Thanks Rex and Erica!

fantastic

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this location and property. The view from the lanai was breathtaking and the location was walking distance to tons of places. The property is spotless and very well appointed, with beach chairs and towels and all the other paraphernalia needed to enjoy the beach which just happens to be about 300 yards off. Rex and his wife are the picture of hospitality and a joy to rent from. If you are lucky enough to get this rental jump at the chance! I'll definitely rent from them again if given the opportunity.

Just Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Pink Plumeria for the month of March 2016. We have spent a month in Honolulu for the past 4 years and of all the places we have stayed, this has been our favourite. First of all, Erica is amazing. She was very patient and accommodating when our dates changed not once but twice! The condo is exactly as advertised. It was very well equipped with everything we needed for cooking some breakfasts and dinners, as well as beach chairs, an umbrella, and beach towels. The bed and all furniture was very comfortable. The keyless entry is brilliant! Loved not having to worry about losing keys.

The condo is in the BEST location as far as I am concerned. We so enjoyed running in Ala Moana Park and also along the Canal. Just a quick jaunt to the beach, or to the mall, and an awesome little local grocery store only blocks away. The building seems very secure and we felt extremely safe. It was very quiet on our floor and never heard a peep from the other units. As the unit is located above the (awesome) Charthouse, you did get some noise from the live music however it always ended promptly at 10pm. We used the sliding door to close off the bedroom at night and were not bothered by street noise at all. We did not have a vehicle but I can see how this would be a very convenient unit if you did.

I would highly recommend this property not only for its amazing location but for its comfort, cleanliness and awesome owners. We will definitely attempt to book this place the next time we come to Honolulu.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned to grey skies and rain, rain, rain from an utterly awesome ten days at The Pink Plumeria. When we first arrived we were pleased - it seemed like a nice enough place, very clean, felt safe. It would be fine. But over the next few days we realized we had found a real treasure. I slept better than I have in years. The bed is huge and very comfortable. The living room couch is also very comfy. I was disappointed at the size of the lanai, but we just set up the little beach chairs at the sliding door and this worked perfectly for morning coffee, afternoon wine, sunset watching and two fireworks events. The marina is right there, just as the picture shows, such an interesting and calming view. The kitchen is perfect. Everything you need is provided. We didn't use the dishwasher as there was just the two of us. Easy to hand wash. Nice big fridge. Everything worked. A few instructions from the owners- we obeyed these and everything was fine. (For example, cockroaches love Hawaii too. I saw a couple of ugly critters elsewhere but none at the Pink Plumeria. Nevertheless we abided by the gentle instructions to take out garbage daily, wipe away any crumbs, etc. Easy). And everything is so easy to get to. We're seniors and one of us has health issues but we walked everywhere. Ala Moana Mall is a short walk away. Duke's, PF Chang's, and other popular restaurants were a longer but utterly pleasant walk in the other direction. And that mighty ocean rolls in and out every day. We loved it all. Thanks, Erica and Rex - it was paradise.

"Family-moon"

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time at this wonderful condo. We were celebrating my daughters wedding and had three different units in this building but this is my favorite!! What you see in the pictures is what you get. The condo is complete with everything you might need including beach chairs!! For a beach goer this was a plus! The location is perfect, the view is beautiful and if you have a car there is a parking garage. If there was one thing I would enjoy that is missing it's a small table and chair set on the lanai. I love sitting out on a lanai in the morning with my cup of coffee. I highly recommend this unit!!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Karen! Thanks so much for your kind words and suggestion. Erica and I are sincerely happy that you had such a good time. We have had a small table and chairs on the lanai in the past, and previous guests told us it interrupted the fabulous view, so we removed them. Many guests enjoy sitting at the dining room table and gazing out, since it is only a couple of feet from the lanai. We will definitely be on the lookout for something very nice but low profile that might work for everyone. Mahalo nui a me a hui hou! Rex and Erica
