We have a comfy cal king size bed with 500 count Egyptian cotton sheets in the bedroom and a full size sofa bed in the living room. (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 privacy, the full-size sofa bed is situated directly behind the wall. Pillows, blanket and linen provided for sofa bed. (There is also a portable mattress if the kids prefer their own bed.)
The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with a granite counter, full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, utensils, and more.
The bathroom has a granite covered wall shower stall w/ removable shower head. Hair dryer, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and 100% Egyptian cotton towels are provided.
The lanai (balcony) has a nice dining table w/ 4 chairs to view the ocean and fireworks while dining. There are also 2 beach chairs, a portable cooler and 4 beach towels provided for our guests.

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!

***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 2013
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.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would book condo again!
We stayed in Phi and Shinomi's condo with our 18mth daughter for 5 nights in November. It was perfect for our family having a separate bedroom for our daughter to sleep in during the day. The condo was fully equipped and clean. Enough bath and beach towels for two families. Overall a very comfortable place to stay in. Awesome view of the lagoon and beach, we were also lucky to be here for the Friday night fireworks from the lanai. The condo is well situated to the beach, restaurant's, shopping and public transport. We would definitely recommend for a small family or couple.
We really enjoyed our stay and found the ILIKAI to be a very nice hotel. The location is great for shopping and easy to navigate to other areas of Ohau. The room was stocked with plenty of towels and there was a good view of the beach and great for the fireworks show. We would recommend room 1630 for a great stay at Waikiki.
The place was very clean, equipped with everything you needed and very nice. The only thing was the sofa is very uncomfortable, we would have liked a tv in the bedroom and the air conditioner could have been cooler but these are personal feelings we would differently stay there again.
We had a wonderful time in Oahu and staying at Phi and Shinomi condo worked out perfectly. Very comfortable king bed, great shower, view of the beach from the lanei and within walking distance of wakiki shop and restaurants. Highly recommend staying in this condo.
