Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Waikiki - Ilikai Hotel #402

High quality condo w/ 1 Bedroom, balcony & full kitchen

Aloha and thank you, for considering our recently remodeled Ilikai Hotel/Condo in the heart of Waikiki. Our 2014 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. (There is also a portable mattress if the kids prefer their own bed.) 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 linen provided for the sofa bed and portable mattress.

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.

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. 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 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 about $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 (VRBO Listing #381527) and #1630 (VRBO Listing #498240) are located on the Lagoon side and also have ocean view plus Friday night fireworks.

This is a 4.5 star room w/ much more to offer than nearby hotels like the Hilton or Ilikai Marina 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 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.

About Phi Nguyen

Phi is president of an IT consulting firm and Shinomi is a medical doctor. We've lived in the US, Asia and Europe and have enjoyed all the places and friends we've met along the way. Hopefully, we can return the favor to all our future guests. Both of us are multi-lingual, and though not 100% fluent, will try our best for our international guests. Our residence is also on the island of Oahu and look forward to make your experience a pleasurable one.

Phi Nguyen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Phi Nguyen chose Oahu

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.

This was a great rental! Perfect location right on Waikiki beach. Parking was easy to figure out. Having a full kitchen was nice. Free wifi was enjoyed by all. Condo was very nice.

Nice stay at the Ilikai

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Phi's property at the Ilikai. Phi was a great host- very quick to respond and completed our deposit refund within 24 hours of our departure. The unit was very clean and well maintained with books, CDs, and lot of beach items like chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, snorkels, etc. It's on a lower floor but still had a nice view of the harbor and ocean. There was some noise from the courtyard below but they closed at 10 pm each night. The lanai was not really usable since it is set back in between the two buildings there was no breeze to speak of and the exhaust from the AC unit made it unbearably hot to sit out there. We liked the proximity to everything- restaurants, shops, beach. The Ilikai pool got crowded quickly but we spent our time at the beach by the Hilton Hawaiian Village. They charge $60 per day for two chairs and an umbrella so use the condo items and save yourself some money (but it can be hard to carry everything down). The bed was comfy and there was a big fold out futon with mattress pad. The wall that separates the living room and bedroom could be nice for family travelers but it made the unit feel smaller and we couldn't watch TV in bed. Don't forget to go up to Sarento's at the top of the property, even if it's just for drinks. The view is amazing!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Phi's place is a great place to stay! We enjoyed the fact that is was just a short walk to Waikiki. The condo was clean and well appointed. The AC worked well and cooled the condo fairly quick! The balcony provides a great view of the sunset. While we were on Oahu, we went visited Pearl Harbor, hiked Diamond Head, snorkeled at Hanauma Bay and saw the fireworks at Waikiki beach. Phi's arrival info was perfect. We would definitely stay at the property again.

Great rental unit

  • 5 of 5

This is a very pleasant, comfortable unit. We had everything we needed from cooking utensils to beach gear! Love the mornings on the lanai. You are close enough to walk the Waikiki area yet far enough not to be right in the heart of it all and that is exactly what we were looking for. We appreciated the air conditioning as the afternoon sun does get hot. Very prompt in returning the deposit too! We would definitely rent this unit again and recommend to others.

No Central Cooling

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my stay, my only issues are:

No bathtub cleaner to clean shower after each use;

No central heat and air conditioning, very hot in bedroom as the wall unit does not efficiently cool the entire room. So I did not sleep well;

Wish the room had twin beds, and

Don't know where to empty trash if you are there longer than a week.

Owner's Response: Well, not sure how to best respond to this. We're glad that our guest still enjoyed their stay. The split A/C is rated to cool down twice the size of our condo. Our description and picture clearly shows a king bed (w/ a $4000 mattress), not twin beds. All relevant info of the condo use, including where to empty trash, laundry, etc., is clearly stated in our laminated instruction sheet on the coffee table. Best - Phi & Shinomi.
