Great views of Waikiki beach and marina!
I would definitely recommend this place. It was clean, has the most amazing views of the marina and beach and has everything you could need. Janna was really helpful and easily contactable, providing us with useful local information. Lots to do nearby, and easy walk if you want more. We enjoyed Watching the Friday night fireworks from the condo, shopping at the Ala Moana centre, swimming at the beach and eating out at nearby places.
From the time we got in to the time we left we were comfortable. Condo was clean and welcoming. Nicely decorated as pictures show from advertising. Only minor thing is we thought the lanai was larger. Still nice to be able to go outside to look around. Thank you for our stay
Mahalo for choosing our slice of Paradise! I'm grateful this condo has a lanai, given that it is small, 2 chairs and a little table will accommodate. Next door at twice the price "Hawaii Prince" rooms have no lanai. Mahalo for all your kind comments and we will look forward to your return visit to this amazing luxury condo with an unparalleled view of Waikiki.
We enjoyed our holiday at Janna McDowell’s #1886 Illikai Marina Condo and would recommend to other travellers because: Good communication with Janna. All ammenities are provided, including washer/dryer, well equipped kitchen. Comfortable bed, nice living area with outstanding views across the marina. Very quiet allowing a good nights sleep after busy days. The condo for us is very central and easy to walk or catch a bus to the many attractions and shops that are on offer. Several quality restaurants are close also. Our favourite was “The Outback”which also caters for Aussie’s. We will be back!!! 👍😊
Highly recommend Penthouse Paradise
When first walking into the lobby (there isn't one) and down the hall to the apartment it can be a little disappointing (dated). But once you walk into the penthouse none of that matters. Beautiful views, clean, roomy and a great location to walk to everything. Beach, restaurants shopping all very close by. I will definitely stay here again!!!
Waikiki stay , June 20- 23rd
I would rate the view from the condo as an (A+) and the amenities as a (B).The reason is that the furniture (especially the bed and the couch) are in need of major upgrading. The plumbing is in need of repair, since the water pressure is non-existent and the sinks do not drain.
Overall, I would still recommend the property because of it’s location and it’s view.
To reply to your comment about the bed it has a brand new $1500 mattress, however I understand that some people do not like a low profile or platform bed. I'm a designer and the look and sleep-ablity is what is most important to me. The bed must also have great linens and offer a good nights sleep. The sofa converts into a full size bed and is also super comfortable. The water pressure is not a condo issue, it is maintained and managed by the building. Mahalo for your kind remarks about the view. We hope you will return one day soon.
When we opened the door the first thing to catch my eye was the beautiful view of the ocean outside the sliding glass door. It was exactly the same as the photo on Janna’s page. The apt was clean and exactly as described on her descriptions. Loved the contemporary Hawaiian decor with the pops of lime here and there. The Ferraro Roche on the pillow was a sweet touch of Aloha.
There were only 2 of us so we found it to be quite spacious.
The bed and pillows were comfortable, and I’m picky about my pillows. We used the fridge to keep our water bottles and drinks cold. My husband used the French press for his coffee. We also used the sunscreen in the closet as we forgot ours. We left the bottle in the closet.
Lots of restaurants in the Waikiki Beach area and Ala Moana Center were within a 20 min. walking distance.
I had read some comments about parking issues, but we followed Janna’s instructions and had no problems. We always found parking on either the 2nd or 3rd level not far from the elevator.
The only picky complaint I have is to add another towel rack since 1 small rack is not enough for 2 full size towels to dry. Oh, my husband will add watch the YouTube on how to use the a/c system as it was a little bit different to what we were used to at home.
We highly recommend this place and would stay here again.
This location is ocean front sitting on the Waikiki Yacht Harbor. The 'Ilikai Marina' is at the entrance to Waikiki the best location period! You can hop on the bus or walk everywhere. At street level in this building there are 4 restaurants, Chart House, Outback Steak House, Red Lobster and Harbor Pub. It is next door the the top hotel in Waikiki 'The Modern' with it's uber chic modern environment and fabulous bar and restaurant. You have access to the work out facility at the Ilikai Hotel. Parking structure attached to this condo.
