** ABOUT OUR CONDO***
Aloha and thank you, for considering our remodeled condo (Unit 1436 on the 14th floor.) in the heart of Waikiki. The main pic you see is taken directly from our lanai (balcony). 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 modern 1-BR condo is about 620 sq ft in size (including balcony/lanai which is about 120 sq ft) and can accommodate up to 4 adults. We have a comfortable Simmons king size pillow-top bed with 500 count Egyptian cotton sheets in the bedroom and a double-size sofa bed in the living room. A portable twin size mattress is also available. (Baby crib and stroller are complimentary and available upon request.) The bedroom is separated from the living room by a solid 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 linen provided for sofa bed and portable mattress.
The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with a granite counter, full size refrigerator w/ ice maker, glass top stove, microwave, indoor grill, rice cooker, crock pot, toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, utensils and more. (Don’t worry, you’ll find everything you’ll need in there.)
The bathroom has a glass-door shower w/ built-in stainless support rails and a chair for mothers with infants and those that need assistance. Hair dryer, body wash, shampoo, conditioner and 100% Egyptian towels are provided.
The lanai (balcony) has a glass dining table w/ 4 chairs to view the ocean and fireworks while dining. There are also 2 beach chairs, a sturdy beach umbrella, a cooler and a boogie board stored on the lanai for guests use. Four beach towels are also provided.
The condo also includes all the smaller finer things that will make your stay a complete comfort like a 42” LCD flat screen TV in the living room, cable TV, DVD/blue-ray player, free WIFI hi-speed internet (room & lobby), extra towels, pillows, linen, blanket, and of course, air conditioning. 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 ocean and Friday night fireworks from the beach!
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 parking is about $30/day and includes unlimited in & out privileges.
This is a 4.5 star room w/ much more to offer than nearby hotels like the Hilton (pricey) or Ilikai Marina (far from beach) with rooms 1/2 our size.

***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 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.

Phi Nguyen purchased this condo in 2011
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.
Luxury, Beach/Ocean front/view at a great price! AND we're located on the cool side of the building facing the Hilton beachfront.
Thank you, so much. Your unit is amazing and you have thought just about everything a person needs to enjoy their stay.
First trip to the islands and it was perfect! I'd definitely come back again. Valet parking was very handy and prompt. The restaurant had wonderful views of the sunset.
In all my travels, this was the best accommodation ever! From the grand view of the ocean from the large balcony, to the beautifully adorned kitchen and bedroom, this condo was truly paradise within paradise. It equipped with anything you could think of needing, it was very comfortable, quiet and private. We were able to entertain guest with our meals that we were able to cook ourselves. We celebrated both our birthdays and our anniversary on the best island, near the most popular beach, in the best condo in the Ilikai hotel. We highly recommend this condo to anyone.
The unit is lovely. Fully stocked kitchen for all your cooking and baking desires. Nice, heavy bath towels. A flat screen TV if you have time to watch TV. The veranda is an ideal setting for morning coffee or evening meal with a beautiful view of the ocean during the day & a delightful view of lights from other high rises at night. Bus service, valet service, a nice bar, and short walk to the beaches and many eateries. The grounds are well kept; someone always keeps the sand vacuumed up - nice and clean! This place is perfect and we plan to return! Communication is quick and easy with the owner and his assistant.
The apartment is well situated overlooking the water. It has a large balcony with room for a dining table -where we ate all of our meals . We also had a superb view of the magnificent Hilton fireworks which are held on Fridays at 7.45
The apartment is tastefully furnished and very comfortable . It is incredibly well equipped with appliances and utensils. The china was very attractive.
There was an array of condiments and a supply of coffee for us to use. We very much appreciated this.
The bed is very large and comfortable with good linen.
The bathroom is modern and functions well. There is an ample supply of bed linen and towels. Shampoo, conditioners and body lotion were provided for our use.
The Ilikai has a swimming pool and lounge chairs.
It is situated right by a bus stop and and is a easy walk to the amazing Ala Moana shopping centre. The food supermarket was being relocated while we were there but is planned to reopen soon.
We found the supermarket on Holbron St very good and just a short walk.
There are many reasonably priced restaurants within walking distance and the bus takes you to the Waikiki main shopping and restaurant area.We liked Assagio at the Ala Moana centre,
We very much enjoyed our stay in this quiet ,charming apartment.
Phi very accomodating. Apartment is equipped with everything you need to have a restful holiday with quality linen (plenty of towels which was appreciated. Views are beautiful and balcony very private. Would recommend to all my friends. Thank you Phi for everything
