** About Our Condo***

Aloha and thank you, for checking out our recently renovated condo (Unit 1630 on the 16th Floor) in the heart of Waikiki. A complete kitchen remake in 2016! This is in addition to our major 2014 remodeling includes new hardwood flooring, new closet system, and wall separating the living room and bedroom. 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 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 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.

The condo also includes all the smaller finer things that will make your stay a complete comfort like a 40” LCD flat screen TV in the living room, cable TV, DVD/blue-ray player, free WIFI hi-speed internet, extra towels, pillows, linen, blanket, and of course, air conditioning and ceiling fan. 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 service for a 24hr period is about $30 with unlimited in and out privileges.

This is a 4 star room w/ much more to offer than nearby hotels like the Hilton or Ilikai Marina with rooms 1/2 our size.

If you cannot find availability, please consider our other ilikai units (VRBO Listing #433144 and VRBO Listing #381527).

***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.

  • 5 of 5

Great place.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was nice, clean and convenient.

Pluses:

Getting to the beach is very easy and safe. No streets to cross, stroller/ wheelchair friendly ramp to the Lagoon. The hosts thoughtfully provide pool toys, beach chairs and sand toys plus 4 beach towels. So if you are traveling with kids, no need to carry lots of gear.

There are plenty of restaurants nearby however vegetarian/ vegan options are limited.

Check-in Check-out was super easy. Cabs are always waiting out front of the hotel. Approximately 10$ cab ride to the shopping district on Kalakaua ave.

Minuses

The photo depicting the open unobstructed view is not from this apartment. The actual

view from this apartment includes the Hilton property and most of the lagoon and few nearby buildings. The view from the balcony is sort of closed in and if you want privacy for sitting out and enjoying your ocean view, then this property wont do it.

The living room and bedroom are separated by a partial wall and curtains. There is no door.

Not good for privacy if you are traveling with others.

The AC vent is in the living room and not in the bedroom. The good news is the AC works well and while the bedroom doesn't quite get cold, it is acceptable.

The ceramic dishes in the kitchen are chipped. This can be easily fixed by the host or provide paper plates for guest use. Washing machines are coin-operated so carry quarters.

Overall, the best part of this apartment is the LOCATION and proximity to beach.

Beautiful view took me into vacation mode right away!

  • 5 of 5

I was very happy with my stay at Phi's condo. Phi was very responsive regarding all my questions prior to my stay. It was a perfect place for myself and 3 family members. The view of bay and ocean is amazing! We were able to use the kitchen to cook some meals which saved on the cost of eating out. The laundry facilities are just down the hall so we were able to wash all of our clothes before leaving. The condo is situated perfectly in Waikiki and within walking distance of stores and restaurants. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and look forward to a return visit!

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

Going to Hawaii to celebrate my husband's retirement from the military has been a long time dream. Everything about our trip was perfect including our stay at the Ilikai.

Our family of three enjoyed a week in this nicely outfitted condo. It has a great view and a location that can't be beat if you want to take in all that Oahu has to offer.

The Friday night fireworks Were beautiful from the deck. The beach and many great restaurants were minutes away and every tour we took picked up right out front of the Ilikai.

Phi was very helpful before and during our stay. He suggested a great luau and everything was as promised upon our arrival.

If we return to Oahu, we would definitely stay here again. Beautiful condo at a great value.
