Great condo, awesome view and it includes the best selection of free beach gear in Waikiki (If you use this, it will add up to significant savings. See below for details.)

One of the best ocean view apartments in Waikiki, ideally located and the best equipped, with everything you will need to have a wonderful vacation.

It has been beautifully remodeled and decorated, with many wonderful island-style furnishings, antiques, art objects and paintings.

Guests love this condo.

The View
Most Waikiki hotel rooms and condos have side ocean views: you need to go out to the lanai to really get the full effect. This condo has fabulous ocean views from moment you enter the front door and from every room! (Please see the photos)

This is a rare unit where you can sit on the living room couch, watch TV and also watch the surfers at the famous Ala Moana surfing spots and boats going by.

In the bedroom, whether sitting up in bed, lounging in the bedroom window seat, or writing a letter at the lagoon-view desk, the view is magnificent.

To the left, you can watch the beach goers, kayakers, and stand up paddle boarders at the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon. To the right, is Ala Moana Beach Park. Looking up the coast, you can see all 4 Honolulu marinas and harbors, with sail boats and ships going to and fro, and enjoy fantastic sunsets.

And be sure to catch the torch lighting ceremony every evening at sunset along the Ilikai walkway to the beach and the fireworks over the lagoon, every Friday at 7:45 p.m. after the sailboat races. You can see them right from your lanai.

The Condo
This is a spacious, 679 sq. ft., 1 bedroom condo, complete with a full kitchen.

If you value a high floor location, with almost 180 degree ocean view, artistic island decor and lots of kitchen and beach equipment, you will agree that this is the best condo in the Ilikai Marina Building and one of the best in Waikiki.

Living Room
has a comfy leather couch, which makes into a queen-sized bed, and 2 additional chairs with ottomans. There is also an artistic chest and coffee table.

There is a big-screen, smart TV, with cable and internet, and a DVD player.

The Kitchen
is fully equipped with full size appliances: side by side fridge with filtered water & ice in the door, microwave, oven/range with flat glass cooktop, custom, deep stainless steel kitchen sink and even a dishwasher.

There are also several small appliances: blender, rice cooker, crock pot, toaster, stand mixer with dough hooks, griller, drip, French press and espresso coffee makers and a tea kettle.

There are plenty of pots, pans, bowls, tableware and silverware, including an Emerilware stainless and copper cook set, and even a picnic basket including plates, cups and utensils.

Dining Room
A lovely, hand carved teak dining set with room for 4, with everything you need to set a nice table.

Be sure to check out the shelves with numerous guide books and even a ukulele!

has a sliding door and can be completely closed off from the living room. This is a big advantage over a typical hotel room or studio condo. (Note: some condos in Waikiki are listed as 1 bedroom, but are actually studios with no separate sleeping area.)

The bedroom is fully furnished, including king-sized Weston Resorts Heavenly Bed, 2 night stands, a chest of drawers and 2 closets.

There are high thread count linens. We have both down pillows, and down alternatives, and a memory foam bed topper, if you would prefer it to the feather bed topper, or if you're like us, use both toppers.

There is also a unique window seat, antique, writing desk and entertainment unit with TV, radio, CD player, tape player and even a phonograph.

is a work of art you can enjoy from the inside. A mix of bronze, copper, stone, jade, teak, koa, bamboo and porcelain all went into making this bathroom a unique experience.

A rainforest marble slab was used to surround the custom tiled deep soaking tub.

There are 3 shower heads, rainfall, handheld and wall shower making luxurious bathing, with room for you and a friend.

Of course, there are lots of towels, basic toiletries and a hair dryer.

By the way, you can access the bathroom from a short hallway from either the living room or the bedroom. You do not need to intrude on the other sleeping area.

Other Features
A central AC system in this building, which provides very efficient, quiet cooling for this unit, without noisy fans or compressor units.

An ironing board and iron are in the closet, and there is a full card operated laundromat on the 8th floor.

Entertainment and Communications
42” big screen, smart TV.
Free, 4G Wi Fi
Second 22” TV in the bedroom.

Stereo, with radio, CD and tape player and even a phonograph player.

everything you will need to enjoy a wonderful vacation has been provided.

The Ilikai Marina Building
is part of the famous Ilikai complex built by the legendary Chinn Ho and featured in both the original and new Hawaii Five-0 TV series. (In fact, one of the central characters in that series is named Chinn Ho in honor of this builder.)

You can still sometimes see the Hawaii Five-0 film crew in action, out at the point by the lagoon, or at one of the Ilikai buildings.

There is 24 hour security and video cameras on all floors.

There is a self-parking garage attached to this building with 24-hour access.

This is not a resort property, so there is no pool on-site, but there are 2 great swimming lagoons right nearby.

This unit is on the 13th floor of the building. The small street in front gets very little traffic anyway, but this unit is high enough to get the great view and avoid any traffic noise.

is a relatively quiet location in Waikiki, but convenient to everything; restaurants, shopping, attractions and of course beaches.

The Ilikai Marina is on the edge of Waikiki, so, compared to the congested middle of Waikiki, it is much easier to get out to downtown Honolulu and the other attractions of Oahu.

Beaches and Lagoons
The 2 choicest beaches of Honolulu are right next to you on either side. The Ilikai walkway drops you right on the lagoon at the start of the nicest part of Waikiki Beach.

The lagoon has had a recent, $13 million make-over. The water is refreshed daily and it is surrounded with beach and it has a very shallow sloping entry, making it ideal for swimming, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking and floating.

This is the start of Waikiki Beach. From here, you can walk all the way to Diamondhead. This section, Duke Kahanamoku beach, named after the legendary Hawaiian surfer and swimming champion, has been rated as the best beach in the U.S. in one recent listing.

On the other side is the fantastic Ala Moana Beach Park. it is over 100 acres of grassy play areas, tennis courts, 3 snack bars, public restrooms, shade trees, pristine beaches and a sheltered swimming lagoon.

All that Waikiki and Oahu offers is right at your feet from this incredibly convenient location. It is easy to get where you need to go with a rental car or public transport or tour buses, which stop right nearby.

Located in the Ilikai Marina building are 4 good restaurants: Chart House, Outback Steakhouse, Red Lobster, and the Harbor Pub (good pizza).

The surrounding area, including the The Modern, the Ilikai Tower, Discovery Bay, the Hilton Hawaiian village and the Prince hotel, have dozens of other restaurants of all types and price ranges.

You will be in the center of a shoppers' paradise.

Right across the street is one of the famous ABC stores, with sundries, food and beach items.

Central Waikiki is just a few moments walk to hundreds of shops; from T shirt shops to Saks 5th Avenue. In the other direction, in less than 7 minutes, you are at the Ala Moana mall, one of the biggest outdoor malls in the world, which is both beautiful and diverse.

Activities and Attractions:
There are charter fishing boats and parasailing boats at the Marina right in front of the condo. Surfing is right out front.

The nearest golf course is 2 miles away.

For travels to other attractions, be sure and check out the guide books in the condo. If you want to plan ahead, we recommend the guidebook "Oahu Revealed."

There are airport shuttles and tour buses stop within 1 block of the entrance.

We are sure you will love this "home away from home" ocean front condo experience.

Property is comfortable, well appointed and charming. We were confused at first when entering the property and found a charging cellphone but no parking pass, until a quick check with the owners clarified the cell WAS the parking pass! Additionally I was thinking we would have to get in our car to go to the beach, until I realized we could easily access the beach using the bridge on the 2nd floor connecting the property to the adjacent property “The Modern”. The beach wagon easily fit all the chairs, body boards and other items we required to enjoy our beach time! The master bed may look lumpy but is very comfortable as is the fold out couch bed (the couch itself not so comfortable). The bathroom is well stocked with 2 different kinds of shampoo and conditioners, 2 hair dryers and many other necessities. The water pressure in the shower was wonderful EVEN WHEN the washing machine was running! We ate out most days so we didn’t get a chance to use the kitchen much, but it seemed well stocked. We were able to see a good size manta ray right in the marina from the balcony and swam with turtles right off the beach behind the Modern. A great time was had by all!

Really enjoyed our stay here - very easy checkin process and room was relatively quiet. Location is great, right next to Hilton lagoon and walking distance to groceries and restaurants. The only thing I would improve upon is the lighting - it is pretty dim and with enduring a week of rain and overcast skies, it was tough to find enough light to read. But overall, would absolutely stay here again!

We are extremely happy with our choice of your condo. It met and surpassed our expectations. The pull out sofa was a disappointment but it existed as advertised. The Master Bed is comfy, the Shower is amazing and is inspiring us to replicate at home. The indigenous decor helped add to our first Hawaiian experience. Truly beautiful. The ocean views and sunsets are SPECTACULAR as promised. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here. We appreciated the drawer spaces. All equipment is greatly appreciated even though we only used the chairs and only once. It's comforting to know we had options. We used the coffe maker every day, thank you for that and the filters. Having a full size fridge with water and ice was fantastic, as well as the washer and dryer with detergent! The proximity to shopping and restaurants this close to a beautiful beach, bay and adjacent park is truly a treasure. Due to an unexpected doctor visit we missed the Friday night fireworks. Hui Rentals (car) on the 5th floor is quite a bonus, especially for bulky shopping. So convenient and reasonably priced for short trips. There always seemed to be availability. We are absolutely grateful that we found you. Thank you for renting out this fantastic unit. If we planned to return we would definitely love to rent this unit again. Mahalo nui to Robert & Carola Aloha from Andrea, Bob and Sterling

This property is amazing! The unit is decorated with lots of fun beach/ocean decor and equipped with most anything you could possibly want or need. The kitchen is updated with great appliances and the water and ice on the refrigerator door was a huge plus! The furniture was comfortable and the bed was amazing! We went to bed and woke up to amazing views each day. The owners have gone to great effort to detail everything in the unit, including owners manuals and information about everything you could want to know, some of this information is outdated such as the parking pass and contact phone numbers but we discovered that the building security was a great resource helping with the lock system and other minor questions. We celebrated our 30th anniversary during our stay and would return in a heartbeat! Rating this a 10/10

Rented this condo as a spot to stay during a retirement vacation for my boyfriend. Location is just at the edge of Waikiki, so getting in and out isn't bad at all. The condo has everything we needed and was very comfortable and exactly what we needed. The A/C didn't work upon arrival, but the caregivers responded quickly to our message and had it back up and running very quickly. Overall a great experience!!!

This condo felt like staying at a friends place. It felt so cozy and is decorated nicely. Everything you need is provided to make your stay carefree. Carola and Robert were amazing at communicating/addressing concerns prior to and during our stay. Highly recommended to friends and family! Will definitely stay again.

Easy access, great view of fireworks and sunsets, within walking distance to everything Waikiki. No problem with noise from the marina or eating establishments on the first level. If you don't want to walk the Pink line hop-on hop-off trolley is available a block away. The convenience of the parking garage is a great amenity.

We had a great stay! Everything was exactly as described in the listing. Great location, the place was well stocked with necessities and lots of extras to make the beach with kids fun. Thank you so much for creating such a great home base for us while we enjoyed Ohau!

Great location with incredible views. Very nice condo with plenty of amenities. Free parking was a huge plus. The area was very nice…Close to the action without being chaotic. Bed was overly soft for us, but we managed. Elevators were slow because only one of two were working. The shower was wonderful. Overall a great experience on this 13th floor unit.

Perfect location - we watched fireworks on Friday nights from our balcony. We could walk to most restaurants, shopping (mall & the fancy shops) from our condo. Right downstairs is a pub, and the chart house - for quick lazy days. The lagoon and beach (you can see from balcony) both can be walked to. We could see sea turtles swimming in the boat dock area every morning. The bed is SUPER comfy, we're always quite snobby about the beds lol

Very well situated - close to everything yet far enough away to not be noisy with tourists. If you are looking for a sweet spot in Waikiki - this is it.

We had a great time! This condo is in a good location, close to everything. We rented a car so we realize how important it was that parking was included with this rental! The condo is well stocked and decorated well. Love the shower!

February 2022
My mom and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. This condo has everything one might need to create and enjoy a home away from home. The property is ideally located with quick access to the beach, park, and shopping. I highly recommend this property!

My wife and I spent a week this January 2022 in this beautifully furnished and ideally located condo with breathtaking sunset views from the 13th floor lanai. The condo is artfully decorated with interesting and attractive paintings furniture and pieces of various sorts all in an Asian/Pacific theme. The bathroom is not only gorgeous but the shower is fantastic and the bed and pillows are as comfortable as any I have ever enjoyed. The location is all but perfect being steps away form the beach and Dukes lagoon but a pleasant walk away from all the attractions of Waikiki. I strongly recommend this property and hope to again stay here in the future

Loved our stay, beautiful views, everything we needed!

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo has everything we need for our daily need. It has certain age but everything is clean. We love the location. Not too far from the center with great view. Especially love the park and beach nearby, great beach but without so many people like the beaches in venter Waikiki. Overall great condo!

The place is well located and has parking. However, the carpets are dirty and the place is crowded and filled with all kind of crap furniture. The closets are also filled with all kinds of personal belongings leaving no place for the guests. The fridge is filled with left over foods by previous guests. The dishwasher, the washer and the dryer are in working condition but are so old. The towels and the bed linen are not properly washed and smell badly. In short, apart from the location and the parking, the place needs improvement on cleanliness and orderliness.

Easy to understand instructions, fully stocked, good amenities. Would def recommend. Fyi: Dryer settings may be a bit off, takes a long time to dry things

My husband and I stayed here for five days the last week of September in 2021. The condo was exactly as it is listed and pictured online. It was very conveniently located the free parking was excellent and it was close to Waikiki beach. The condo was tastefully decorated and very comfortable and homey feeling. It was very well stocked with supplies also including items to take to the beach with you. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it to others looking to visit the Honolulu/Waikiki area!

We absolutely loved out time here. The boogie boards, umbrella and chairs were perfect for us and our teens. The condo had absolutely everything we needed - including bloody mary mix! The location is perfect, the views were amazing - my husband loved watching the boats come in at night. When we return to Oahu - we will want to stay here again. Location is prime without being crazy busy like some other locations nearby. WIsh we could have stayed another week!

This property had the most amazing view. We spent half our vacation sitting and watching it. It was the perfect size for my husband and I and the location is only slightly off Waikiki beach (in a good way - think quiet.). It's a short walk from the park and the beach and shopping. The 'lenai' is too small to sit on so we had to enjoy from the inside, but I would still highly recommend staying here. We'll come back again. Renee
