Overview

About the property

This Beautiful Re-Model Along With Our Sister Unit VRBO560972 Will Delight You!

Your completely newly and stunning remodeled condo greets with a view of the ocean and lovely lagoon. Watch the Friday night fireworks from your oversized lanai. Dine next door at world famous Morimoto Restaurant or go up the glass elevator to Sarento's at the Top of the Ilikai for drinks and fantastic food in the round and catch a magnificent sunset then watch Honolulu twinkle at night with their breathtaking panoramic views. Check your e-mail with your free Wi Fi or watch your free cable or connect to your Netflix account on the large flat screen TV. Enjoy the all Italian leather furniture or European linens. Experience the 40-year-old tradition of Hawaiian torch lighting that happens nightly or the hula show downstairs next to the newly opened Cinnamon's restaurant and bar that serves the best pancakes anywhere!

The Ilikai is a classic oceanfront hotel that stands proudly at the entrance to Waikiki and it's beachwalk overlooking the most famous beach in the Pacific. A private walkway leads directly from the hotel to the redesigned Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon and the most desirable strand of Waikiki Beach. From our lovely and spacious ocean view room on the 11th floor which faces the ocean and the lagoon, we think you will love it here as we offer relaxing accommodations that suit your every need. You can snorkel, surf, hike, kayak, paddle board, scuba, swim, or shop within minutes and all the equipment is available here.

The Ilikai's convenient location allows for easy access from Waikiki to many popular area attractions. You'll find yourself within easy walking distance to Ala Moana Beach Park, Ala Moana Center, Waikiki Beach Walk, and the Hawaii Convention Center. Downtown Honolulu is located only a few minutes away by car. The outlet malls have buses which pick you up here!

Most all our wonderful guests are returning ones and we hope you will come again and again. You will feel like royalty! There's a reason Elvis stayed at the Ilikai along with presidents and other notables! We keep beach toys and accoutrements for you such as beach chairs, floats, and boogie boards for your pleasure. Nothing beats the salt water pool which is only an elevator ride away with its valet towel service and adjacent pool house where you can relax between dips, sip some delightful tropical beverage, and enjoy a good books. Or relax over coffee on your lanai. It's all great -- especially when you have your own beautiful full sized kitchen with granite counter tops and can do your own thing on your own schedule! Our guests cannot rave enough! So will you!

Drop your cares and come stay with us at your 'Dream of Aloha' 2015 Re-modeled beautiful one bedroom which includes California King bed, large screen television, WiFi, all new appliances, new wood floors, new ceiling, serenity painted walls, great art, new leather furniture, and all the comforts of home. Everything is new and it's all yours! We also have a sister re-model in VROB listing 213994.

About Patricia Rust

I am a travel writer and in re-modeling the condo, I gave it every touch I look for when traveling from soft sea colors to European linens from Italian leathers to soft Egyptian cottons. I keep paper products and snack things stocked for a cozy feeling on arrival....mi casa es su casa....I want my home to be your home and for you to have a fabulous trip! While writing and traveling for the Huffington Post teaches me all the great things there are in the world, I try to bring them to you and spoil you in every possible way from cut crystal to the finest linens and towels!

Patricia Rust purchased this condo in 2007

Why Patricia Rust chose Oahu

I bought it to live in myself! But families do change! Also, I like to travel to Mediterranean countries and know what a bargain Hawaii is by comparison! Our monthly rate is their weekly rate! You just can't beat Hawaii or the prices! Also, I grew up here and have watched the aloha spirit in action and I haven't found it anywhere else! I love the new relaxation pool where you can float your chaise lounge on the pool then go to the new massage spa!

What makes this condo unique

The Ilikai is an iconic hotel for a reason. You take the elevator downstairs and you are at the lagoon and ocean. Everyone is friendly. Yesterday, they put in a Food Pantry grocery store which is a fine grocery store like a Gelson's. I'm so excited. They even have a sushi chef in another one! So, I can't wait to see this one. Their coffee place is the best and the grounds couldn't be nicer overlooking the yachts at the Marina where a stroll is always in order. The Ilikai is lovely and has been re-modeled and maintained. That's why folks come again and again!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Patricia's 11th floor suite was perfect for our stay and everything was exactly as described and shown in the pictures. It was located with super easy access to shopping and night life in the area but still set far enough away from those aspects that it still felt quiet and secluded. Patricia's communication with us from initial inquiry to reservation setup to check-in and check-out was superb, timely and extremely friendly. We would highly recommend working with Patricia and staying in her lovely space to anyone. Lastly, we really enjoyed the fact that we had the conveniences of staying in a high-end hotel (on-site restaurant, lounge, shops and valet service) but still the advantage of staying in a private residence. The view from the lanai was spectacular and sunsets were breath taking. Five stars for this high-end luxury experience!

Dream of Aloha

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this condo for three weeks during February and March 2017. The property is exactly as advertised. This condo is very lovely with excellent view and the location is perfect. The owner Patricia couldn't have been more helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Our experience was perfect and we will go back.

New, bright and clean

  • 5 of 5

This condo was centrally located between the busy shopping row or to the mall. We enjoyed being away from the hectic part of downtown as it was a beautiful walk through the park to get there.

The condo itself was clean, remodeled nicely, and had all the basic necessities. Best spot to watch the fireworks was right off the balcony!! The laundry facilities were super handy, on the same floor and the pool was not very busy. It was a very short walk to the beach or the lagoon if you prefer that instead.

couldn't be better

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from 5 weeks at Patricia's Ilikai condo. Couldn't be happier. the location is perfect, midway between Ala Moana Centre and downtown. Great view, right on the water. Walks on the beach start right out your front door. lots of facilities right on sight. Pool staff are excellent, good restaurant, and great dining at Sorentos. Staff are all very friendly and efficient.

Had a chance to meet Patricia and Scott. Great people. Would definitely recommend to any age people looking for perfect accommodations. This would be on the top of our list if our travel plans take us back to Honolulu.

beautiful condo on Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here to celebrate our 28th anniversary. The condo is beautifully furnished and situated with a great view. Patricia is a great host, very quick to respond to questions and offer suggestions for our stay. I would highly recommend renting from her and staying in the beautiful Illikai!

Great condo in the heart of Waikiki Beach

  • 5 of 5

Description, location, layout and amenities were fantastic...and accurately presented in the property write-up. Patricia was extremely responsive and easy to work with. This was our first trip to Hawaii, and we definitely will be back....and hopefully stay in this wonderful condo. 4 of us stayed comfortably in the unit for 8 days with adequate supply of towels and linens for our stay. Located centrally to many activities in Oahu, we were able to not only enjoy the beach, but to sample many of the islands famous attractions including Diamond Head, Polynesian Cultural Center, Hanauma Bay for snorkeling, Pearl Harbor, Kualo Ranch, Sea Life Park, etc. What a wonderful vacation, and a great place to stay! Aloha!

Wonderful condo in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic! We had an amazing time and the room had everything we needed. It was so nice having the kitchen to make breakfast and lunch to eat on the picturesque lanai! The Ilikai was a great place to stay as it had everything you could need within the building itself, and tons of shopping And restaurants within a few minutes walk. We would most definitely stay here again!
