Was good but fans would help
Loved the condo and the view. The hotel had all the amenities needed for a 10 day stay. The ice cream store and Cinnamons restaurant recommended. Close walking distance to the beach. It’s pretty rocky at the beach near the condo and swim shoes are recommended. The condo is located on the far east side of Waikiki so we had to walk a lot. If you don’t mind than it’s not a problem. The kitchen was well stocked but the dishes are getting old and dated. A better selection of pillows would have been appreciated. Many were too soft and two were needed. Overall I would come back and recommend this condo. Nicely decorated.
This place was excellent for location and amenities. The only drawback was the hide-a-bed in the living room. Mattress was very uncomfortable and we could not locate sheets for this bed. We used the sheets for the king conversion. We had a great time and would absolutely stay there again.
nice place,,easy to get to
Wonderful condo, great location !
3rd time in Oahu and 2nd stay at the Ilikai. Central location and walkable to shops and restaurants. Nice to use the Hilton lagoon adjacent to the condo. A bit noisy at night with traffic but overall an excellent stay.
Great accommodation and spectacular view. Enjoyed the sgallow pool. Very relaxing. Easy walk into the waikiki hub
Amazing view - perfect to have two bedrooms at different ends of the condo - amazing location.
We had a great time. highly recommended
Beautiful condo with fantastic views. Great amenities. 2 pools. Short walk to the beach where you can snorkel and swim with the turtles...Don't bother paying for an excursion to swim with turtles and other sea creatures. You can rent snorkel equipment at the surf shop on the first floor and they will tell you where to find the turtles. The building the condo is located in has many shops and a great restaurant. All in all, a wonderful experience. I would stay here again, no doubt.
Really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful views, unit was very clean, lots of windows and extremely comfortable for two couples. Highly recommend.
We so loved this condo! Great location, beach, restaurants, shopping and in/out parking close by. It was perfectly clean and outfitted for cooking (breakfast was the only meal we wanted to cook). The balconies offered views of the ocean and the city. It served as the perfect base for our exploration of the Island of Oahu.
The condo is fantastic, loved the location and all the amenities near the condo complex. Can’t wait to go back!
We enjoyed the gorgeous views from corner unit windows and balconies.
Tastefully decorated. Great location for tour picks, beach access, restaurants/ ice cream, wonderful weather!
The location was perfect for us. Lots to see and do within easy travelling distance. The bus stop made access to Waikiki shops and Ala Moana shopping centre a breeze. As runners there were so many park and beach views to enjoy. The Chart House became our regular watering hole. Views of the sunset from the apartment were spectacular and all the facilities made it a time to remember.
Top rated apartment! Beautiful views! Central location. Had a wonderful stay! Everything you need in one place!
My family stayed in three condo units in the Ilikai Towers over Christmas. This was the most attractive with lovely views. Upscale furnishings and interior design. Owner was attentive to requests.
The property was wonderful for our family of five. We used it as a home base while we traveled around the island. Morning and evening we walked down to the beach and lagoon. Kids loved the lagoon and all the tiny fish. Be sure to pack your water shoes as the coral and rocks around the island are sharp! Would highly recommend staying here again!
Was a perfect location for our vacation . Amenities were accurate the only complaint I have was there was no waste baskets in the bathrooms.
Very conveniently located 2 br condo in the Ilikai, a famous building in Honolulu. Condo is in excellent condition with everything you could want for a family of four. Ilikai is equidistant from Ala Moana shopping center and Waikiki area.
Car rental available right in the lobby of the building. Ilikai also has a very nice restaurant and take-away bistro (and a place to buy sundries). Great communication from owner - easy check in and check out process.
This was the second of what we hope will be an annual trip for my adult disabled daughter, my sister, and I. I decided before the Pandemic to plan/coordinate these trips for my daughter because she cannot do this for herself. We pick places she would like to travel and activities she enjoys. Oahu was also special because my brother/her favorite uncle also lived there for many years and we have visited him through the years before he passed away.
We loved the condo complex, our lanais and views, the pools, and especially the lagoon! I was able to rent a paddleboard and paddle my daughter around the island and lagoon. We loved cooking together and our al fresco dinners on the lanai. Our last full day we celebrated with a late lunch at Pesca. We truly had a lovely time!
Thank you, Gloria!
This is our 3rd visit to Waikiki and the second Vrbo experience in this building. We truly enjoyed this unit, it was everything it promised. The views were amazing and so centralized to all the attractions we went to see. Thank you for sharing this beautiful space. Mahalo!! And Aloha!!
Clean, cozy. It had restaurants and take out too. Pools were nice.
Loved the two decks! Accomodated our request to push two twin beds together.
Nice central location.
Outlet in double bedroom doesn’t hold cord and dishwasher doesn’t seem to work very good. Absolutely no food items (not even salt and pepper)
The Ilikai is a great place to stay. It is at the north end of Waikiki so it was ideal for shopping ( my spouse), the beach, and my favorite - places to eat were nearby.
The condo was spacious with great views of the city and lagoon/ocean. The location was perfect and the condo amenities were also wonderful. I would definitely return and highly recommended this condo.
We were a family of 6 and this condo was very spacious with the most spectacular views! Great location as well, close to beach and shopping. Property manager was very prompt at replying to emails too. Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again!
Comfortable beds, spacious, and great views! Great location for walking through Waikiki area and to the beach. Accurate pictures and listing.
My grandson graduated from high s hook and wanted to go to Hawaii. While in Hawaii he had his 18th birthday. He said it was the best thing in his life and could not believe there was any place more beautiful than the condo we stayed in. I absolutely agree with him. Gloria was a wonderful host and the condo was absolutely breathtaking from morning until sunset. Thank you so much for letting us share these memories with my family and sharing your aloha with us!

Love love your condo Pictures don't do Justice My family enjoyed remodeled condo The pictures they have up on the website are old .
I knew it was a hotel and condo with short term rentals but never stayed there before. I lived in Honolulu for 9 years so never needed a hotel there, but always loved the location. The condo was just as described, clean, updated and well equipped.
Would go again in a heartbeat!
This property in Honolulu by Waikiki Beach has a terrific view and was very comfortable for two couples. I recommend the Valet parking ($35 day) for convenience. Since it is in the heart of the city near the beach, the traffic can be a little noisy but overall it was a great experience for the two adult couples in our party.
Which truly enjoyed staying at this property. The view of the ocean was beautiful. The communications were good and it was exactly how it was advertised.
My family of 4 stayed at this condo for 4 nights. The property was just as pictured in the listing. Super clean, comfortable beds…our two teenage kids loved having their own beds. The location is just excellent and the views from the balconies are amazing. You just feel like you’re in the heart of it all. The amenities at the Ilikai are great too (restaurant, coffee/açaí bowl place, ice cream, convenience store…all onsite.). We didn’t rent a car, just took a taxi when we needed to. We’d stay here again in a heartbeat. My parents stayed in another unit down the hall and we all loved staying at the Ilikai.
Very nice place. Wonderful location, nice pools. Loved looking at the ocean from the lanai, and having my morning coffee.
We enjoyed our stay. Loved the two lanais, one facing city and one facing the lagoon and ocean.
There is so much we loved about our stay - to name a few:
- Super walkable location; near great beaches and lots of restaurants
- Tastefully decorated, great layout, large closets, and tons of balcony space
- Well suited for disabled guests with elevator access, no steps within the condo, one bathrooms designed with accessibility in mind (walk-in shower with only a small ~6” step, grab bars in shower and around bathroom, shower stool available). The beach boardwalk along this end of Waikiki also increased accessibility!
After a two year hiatus because of COVID-19, we were finally able to get back to our "happy place'. Our stay here couldn't have been better. The property is clean and up to date. Everything we needed was there to make our stay enjoyable. The view is amazing also! Gloria is a gem to work with and so is her management team. Didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back! Mahalo again for a wonderful stay!
Overall, super happy with our stay at the Ilikai. Beautiful views from the lanai’s, clean, and comfortable place. My only complaint would be there was only 1 dish washer packet for our 5 day stay. We had to hand wash, which isn’t a big deal except there were only two small hand towels and no wash cloths. Nothing major.
The owner was great at answering questions for me and very timely. The location is very walkable to restaurants and activities. Pool areas are well taken care of.
Great location close to all the major shopping and eating areas. Clean and comfortable condo with breathtaking views. Easy beach access and parking. Highly recommend for travelers of all types.
This was a great property for my family and i to stay in. The communication with the property manager was good even with a small hiccup to start. The second room is right off the living space so who ever stays there will be up early.
There are no beach towels but there are chairs and a beach bag which was helpful.
There is only one dishwasher soap so if you are there for more than 3 days you will need to buy some or just hand wash everything.
Overall I would stay here again. Great location
This was the perfect place to stay for my family's trip to Oahu. It is centrally located and easy to access. Everything was easy, from booking to check-in to check-out!! Will definitely stay here again when we return to Oahu!!
I have stayed in Waikiki 3 times now and this was my favorite. The location near the lagoon is great for kids or the elderly. The beach is very close and calm in this area too. One of the best features for us was the ease in parking nearby. You can certainly use the valet but we choose to use the metered parking right before the hotel, near the harbor. It's $1/hr but if you're not at the condo a lot, it's much cheaper. The condo itself is a little outdated but is exactly as pictured so definitely no surprises. The second bedroom closes off with accordion doors but my father did say it got warm at night with them closed. He left them open slightly to get the a/c from the living room and all was good. The space is quite large and the 2 balconies are absolutely wonderful. The only downside for us is that the master bedroom bed was quite hard but that's just our opinion. We prefer a memory foam/ softer bed. Overall incredible place and we would definitely stay again.
I do agree with some other reviewers that the queen bed needs to be replaced. But other than that this is an amazing place and location. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
we were very pleased with this unit and the property overall. especially having visited during covid, we were pleased with how the illikai tried to keep all those staying as safe as possible. most guests & visitors complied with the stated signs and all employees were masked. the unit we rented was lovely and had 2 lanais, one that caught a lovely breeze, but was on the noisier side of the building. hopefully, once the pandemic has ended, the hilton hawaiian village will resume holding their hawaiian shows on the rooftop stage, so any future renters and the owners will again have a perfect location from which to enjoy the show. the other lanai overlooked the illikai's two pools and the lagoon & one pool at the hilton hawaiian village, plus part of the marina and the ocean. we had everything in our unit to make us feel at home.
Location and view were great! Mattresses were not comfortable (need upgrade). Also could have used some basics in the kitchen salt, pepper etc..
There were no cleaning wipes or hand sanitizer. Place was clean and location great! Two balconies!
This was our first visit to Hawaii and it met all of our expectations and more. Your condo was the perfect location as we were not renting a car. We had plenty of space and loved having 2 bathrooms. We found good restaurants within walking distance that were reasonably priced. I loved the atmosphere of the Ilikai and especially having Dave’s ice cream off the lobby was a bonus!
Thank you for sharing your condo!
We loved it! It was in a great location - walking distance to shopping stores and the beach! Checking in and out was easy. Gloria was quick to respond when I had questions. It was clean and comfortable. It was a relaxing place to go back to after a long day of exploring. We would love to stay here again if we get the chance to come back to Honolulu!
This condo exceeded expectations. The valet parking was well organized and efficient.
Really cannot say enough nice things about this property. It was clean, lots of room, and the location was fabulous.
The unit in location on the 10th floor on the south east corner of the Ilikai (both hotel and private units). The pictures of the view from the lanai are accurate! Great location to watch the morning sun rise while drinking coffee….or even early evening cocktails to watch the day sky set.
The unit was comfortable for our family of 4. The second full bathroom is huge! Some of the furniture is dated, but the owners recently replaced the couch, end tables, coffee table, and frig. Both bathroom could use a face lift, but both functional.
From the Ilikai, it’s a short walk to
The Hilton lagoon and beach.
Ala Moana shopping and park is less than a mile walk.
A few things to include - but by no means show stoppers:
- washer/dryer is shared and coin operated. We have family on the island and opted to not to use onsite washer/dryer
- valet parking is $28/per day. They highlight self park for $24/per day, but good luck with that
- this might be Covid related, but the elevator can get crowded during certain hours, but there is a 4 person max in each elevator. Half the time people respected that. We used the stairs going down a few times.
- Hilton fireworks are cancelled! On a normal non-Covid year, free fireworks on Fridays can be seen from the Ilikai…we were sad that it wasn’t happening
In summary, the unit is in a perfect location, lots of room, and we would return back if the owners would allow.
Celebrating 50 years of marriage took the family to Oahu. What a marvelous time we had. The condo rental was everything and more. Enjoyed the beach, ocean, pool, sightseeing, luau and fantastic views. Thank you, couldn’t have asked for more.
After a Long 30 years away…So happy to be back with my kids. The last time I was here I was my daughters ages. Place was clean, spacious, and location was perfect. I hope to be back…would highly recommended! Everything went smoothly, from checkin to checkout process! There’s definitely probably more updated condo’s but I felt it’s more important to put my $$ in doing, seeing,and eating out…but the views were perfect of Waikiki; lagoon, beach & Marina…5-7 min walk to the beach! Pools were clean and not crowded…which was nice pace from beach…anyone coming will be very comfortable. Owner is lovely, and ver receptive to quick questions prior to trip. The rep at Office was very nice and friendly and helpful
We thought the view was great. The condo was clean and met out needs with three adults and one teen. The sofa bed mattress was thin and would better match the condo description if it were a regular mattress. There were a few minor maintenance items that we let the maintenance folks know about. All in all a great place.
Nice comfortable stay with an ocean view and close proximity to everything.
Very clean, well-situated property! Booking and corresponding with the owner was so easy! Definitely recommend this condo!
We were most impressed with the easy check in process, the condo’s convenient location and the views from the two balconies. This was a great value! The hotel in which the condo is located also provided free live entertainment throughout the week which was a real bonus.
We would stay here again for sure.
Me and my 3 young adult children came to Oahu for a 12 day vacation. The condo met all of our expectations! While there was amble supplies in the kitchen, we chose not to use them with the exception of the coffee maker and glasses.
The only negative thing I could say was the elevators were not working properly the entire stay. The building staff could have been more accommodating and compassionate with the issue.
