Beautiful property with an amazing view. Close to everything…the beach, restaurants and shopping. We would definitely choose to stay here again.
The stay was amazing. There was 7 of us in total and we never felt cramped. Tge location was perfect with quick beach access. The host was amazing In responding. Would recommend staying here again.
Two adults and two teens stayed the first week in July.
This unit is on the twelfth floor. It is a corner unit and has excellent views of the ocean, the Hilton Hawaiian Village lagoon, and the harbor.
The unit has been remodeled but still could use some updates ... interior doors, moldings, etc. The cookware was marginal but useable. There were manual ice cube trays in the freezer.
Plenty of quality beach towels and regular towels.
The pro & con of this unit/complex is that it is in the heart of Waikiki ... so you are close to shopping and activities ... but there is also a lot of noise from the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the beach/park/lagoon.
The second bedroom has two "entrances" ... one is a standard door. The second has a pocket door that closes towards the glass sliding doors to one of the decks ... so it never closes off completely ... so not 100% private.
Jeannie was an excellent host. Access to the unit was quick and easy.
Came to Hawaii for my husbands birthday. The condo and location was perfect. Beautiful condo, with spectacular views. Condo wasn’t to small, it fit all 7 of us, just right. We had everything we needed all around us, shops, restaurants, snacks, and of course ABC stores that you can not miss. Thank you Jennie for sharing your home with my family.
The view was incredible, location is great! The condo is very clean and comfortable.
Jeanie was very helpful to get us checked in when the links in the listing did not work
Definitely 5 ⭐️
Was stunning. Location and view was
perfect. . Check in and communication was easy and accurate. Would definitely recommend.
Took my daughter and her bf to Waikiki to celebrate her college graduation! Best views from this corner unit on the 12th floor! Beautifully appointed remodel, clean and simple. Great location to walk around the city!
Beautiful place! Very conveniently located.
We loved this unit. The location was wonderful with a perfect view of weekend evening fireworks and surfers always in view. Easy access to Waikiki beach as well. The two decks and two king bed rooms were perfect.
Nice place! Everything you need in one place!
Very clean and loved the property
The condo was perfect for our party. It had everything we needed. Check-in was a breeze! Condo was beautiful and exactly as pictured. Wonderful ocean views from both lanais. We would definitely come back and stay here again.
The property the condo resides in is clean and centrally located. The condo was perfect for my co-worker and myself. Plenty of space.
Great location in Waikiki and convenient to shopping at Ala Moana. Condo had a great view of the beach and marina. The Ilikai is celebrating its 60 year anniversary and needs some refreshing. Inside the condo, both beds were well past their prime and Jeanne was aware of one of them and made plans to replace the mattress. She promised to replace both mattresses which would happen after our stay. She was prompt when we asked her for additional clean up of the showers. Jeanne was also most helpful in recommending a nearby pharmacy for us. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay.
Love the property and all it had to offer definitely would stay here again. They bought and delivered new mattresses our second night in and the new mattresses were so firm none of slept that well the last few nights. But amazing condo!!
Beautiful space with great views! Close to everything and right on the water. Will definitely stay here again.
Lovely place to stay for our trip to Hawaii. The only issue we had was on the first day getting into the property, but Jeannie was very responsive and was able to get us in quickly. Would visit again.
Amazing views and location!
As others have said, mattresses need updating. The condo does not accommodate seven, just six.
Wonderful place and location. Prefect New Years stay. We had a lovely time watching the fireworks from the balcony. Beautiful apartment with a great lay out for the 5 of us. Only real issue was the beds with bad mattresses and synthetic bed linen.
We had a lovely time staying at this property. It was well outfitted and clean. Jeannie is very responsive which was much appreciated.
The view is stunning.
The images of the property are amazing and what led us to book our stay here however the condo and the view itself were even better than expected in real life. The location of the condo was central to everything. Spacious and extremely clean with all necessities provided. Right from booking, the owner has been wonderful and extremely responsive to all questions as well as providing all information about the condo and surrounding areas. Highly recommend staying here to everyone and would love to stay again when we come back to Waikiki! Thank you for making our stay so memorable!
The description and reviews were very accurate. We decided against hiring a car and had an easy 3 day stay enjoying the beaches within walking distance. Ala Moana mall was very close too and the apartment balcony was an excellent spot to see the Friday night fireworks. The Ilikai building itself is iconic and the apartment has been updated.
There are no words that accurately describe our experience except awesome and fabulous.
What a beautiful condo. Immaculate, phenomenal views, perfect location.
We are already making plans to come back.
Thank you Jeannie for giving us a memorable vacation. Mahalo!!
We had an amazing time at Waikiki beach staying here. The apartment had two well fitted out bedrooms and bathrooms. The lounge and kitchen area were perfect for hanging around between excursions. I've stayed at several hotels and resorts in the area and this was much better! Highly Recommended by this family.
We enjoyed our stay at this condo very much; it’s bright, with amazing views, in a good beachy neighborhood with restaurant/shopping amenities nearby. We’d stay again - but we are only a couple, not a family. It is disappointing - see below — that the management hasn’t paid attention to previous reviews about maintenance problems that shouldn’t be the case for a unit that is billed as a “luxury” condo. It’s not a luxury unit as you would expect; it’s getting worn.
The unit does indeed look like the pictures; it’s bright from the early morning until sunset and the views are spectacular; it’s on the 12th floor of what is probably the best vertical tier of units in the Ilikai. It’s beautifully decorated, and communication with the rental manager was fine and prompt. There are amenities in the unit, but absolutely nothing more than salt, pepper and Pam to cook with - not even a coffee filter. It has the benefit of being a condo with a good amount of space, but accessible to restaurant, shopping and other amenities of the Ilikai Hotel, and the Hilton Hawaiian Village steps away. The beaches nearby are beautiful, but quieter than on the east end of Waikiki, and the high end stores are only a 25-minute stroll away. (You can get Dole Whip!) We loved being away from the craziness of the other end of the beach. Also, great options for sunset or turtle snorkeling catamaran cruises are minutes away.
About the maintenance: The owners are clearly not putting money back into the unit to maintain it. As others noted, all of the outside cushions are worn, stained, and have little comfortable stuffing left, and one of them is torn open. There is no bureau in the second bedroom - not a problem for us, but a family needs not to live out of a suitcase. The primary bedroom mattress is shot; particularly along the sides where you might sit. As someone noted, there are only four wine glasses, unmatching like they came from a flea market.
Again, as a couple, we didn’t need to experience several of these things - other than the decrepit primary mattress, and would stay there again - we had a great week there — but a family considering this unit should ask first about what’s been done to the maintenance, considering the cost of the unit.
This property did not disappoint. It was very clean with modern decor... The 2 lanais were perfect--shade or sun depending on the time of day. Walking distance to shops and restaurants and most importantly to the ocean/beach! Jeannie was prompt and available for any questions. Perfect view of the Friday night fireworks. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
In our experience we would give this a 3.5 star rating ( but this request for ratings, only allows whole numbers ) We did not see this as a “luxury condo “ as described. Our opinion is the unit was nice , but had flaws, which I will explain.
The Good: Very easy check in process, fabulous views, friendly workers at ilika, Close to beach and restaurant, easy in and out valet parking. Good ice cream shop on property.
The Bad: Bathroom tile and vents in shower had mold buildup ( I have photos, but not sure where to post ) the sleeper sofa was broken, which resulted in my granddaughter sleeping on the mattress on the floor ( when I called about this , I was offered a blow up mattress ) How comfortable could that be for 8 nights ? There is no dresser in the second bedroom - you had to live out of your suitcase for your shirts , under garments , bathing suits etc. the doors for the bathroom squeak so loud - waking up everyone when someone had to use the facilities throughout the night .. we needed to get wd40 to fix the squeak after the second night to get a restful night of sleep. The headboard in one room bumped against the wall every time you flipped sides sleeping ( it needs to be tightened to the frame ) The outdoor seat cushions were stained ( I would be embarrassed to have guest at my house , with stained seat cushions ) and there looked to be what once was a place for towels on the door of the bathroom- was no longer available ( meaning , one towel rack , for several towels) The owner could offer small beach accessories ( sand buckets ), since the condo is at the beach , but they don’t . There was not enough trash bags for 6 people for 8 nights and the trash bins down the hallway stayed overflowing.
The Ugly : While waiting for our car from valet- guest parking apologized for the delay and informed us the the vehicle next to ours in the garage had the window busted out . Later that morning an individual ( God rest his soul ) either fell or jumped from a higher floor than what we were on ( not sure what happened) and the body of the deceased and body parts were exposed for several hours ( there was no tent placed to shield this from those walking out on the balcony) . Very sad and disrespectful to the family of the deceased and very disrespectful to every guest walking outside their balcony to witness such a horrible tragedy.
The unit is nice , but the owner needs to take some additional steps to make it a luxury condo .
We thought we would be going to a luxury apartment but that only applied to the view. The roads surrounding the property were very noisy into the night. There were very few cups and wine glasses to use and a very cheap toaster that did not work as it should, only toasting one side of the bread. The second bedroom had no bedside lights and minimal storage. There were plenty of good quality towels. There needed to be an extra lamp in the lounge and balcony lighting would have been nice. We were given a list of rules but not much information regarding larger Supermarkets other than ABC which only had minimal stocks of fresh fruit and vegetables. The Satellite controller in the lounge didn’t work until we swapped the battery, which should of been check before our stay. The hook to hang your robe in the en-suite bathroom was missing. We feel the owner had taken their eye off the ball for this apartment and was charging top dollar for accommodation in a rather tired building. We would not rent again in this complex.
Location and views could not be beat. Unit was very clean and nicely furnished. A/C was working great for when the sun was pouring in. Valet area was always very crowded with cars which made loading and unloading difficult. Ended up using a public garage one block away to avoid the traffic jam at the front door. Communication to rent property was great. We had issues with the TV that property manager never responded to. That was disappointing. Ended up that all of the remotes were dead. Went out and bought batteries and problem solved. Overall, very happy with the unit.
Condo has a great view and was great for our stay. Watched the Friday night fireworks from the lanai. Had plenty of space for our group with enough privacy. Lots of places within walking distance. Frequented the bar across the street showing college and nfl games.
Everything was just as we hoped. Wonderful view, even saw the fireworks. The city is so beautiful at night. Well equipped, didn't want for anything.
Jeannie was easy to communicate with and prompt. She made booking and checking out very painless.
Our group of three adults and three teens enjoyed our week-long stay. The condo was beautiful, views were breathtaking, and balconies were great. The pull out sofa and twin pull out in Livingroom took a bit of time to figure out, but once we got it figured out, it slept three teens just fine. Code to get in door was easy to use, and Jeannie was quick to respond to any and all questions. Only downside was that it was about a 25-30 minute walk to main Waikiki strip but an easy and quick Uber ribe when we got tired of the walk. Cinnamons in lobby was great for our arrival lunch, and kids got açaí bowls, smoothies and coffee every morning from downstairs coffee shop. Lovely stay.
This was a great place! Perfect views of the lagoon and Friday night fireworks! Jeannie was very prompt when we had questions & this space was absolutely beautiful.
Location amazing. Lots of room to spread out. Appreciated the amenities the Ilikai offered. We spent 90% of the time we were at the condo on the balconies-we even saw the Hilton Hawaiian Village’s fireworks show from the balcony overlooking the bay!
It was fine
We had a great time staying here! Very clean, had everything we needed. Jeannie was very prompt with a request! It was at the room way before we expected it! We would highly recommend this property!!
My family of 7 stayed comfortably in this condo and fully enjoyed our view and stay within. Perfect location for beach access, harbor, restaurants and shopping. Clean, comfortable, modern. Owner was available via text and responded quickly for any quests or needs. Thank you Jeannie!
we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this iconic hotel after a stay t Disney’s Aulani resort. The room did not disappoint, location was great and the views were amazing. The owner was very responsive to a few small issues we had, even though we didn’t realize it was a holiday weekend. Would definitely stay here again.
Great location.. walking distance to restaurants, beaches.
prompt and courteous communication with Jeannie. Condo was very clean, great layout for a family of 4. Loved the ocean views from both decks.
IDK if it's a Covid rule.. I wish the property had more kitchen staples (ie salt, pepper). Had to purchase them from ABC Store.
We enjoyed our stay. The location is excellent. Property is clean and beautiful. Will come back again
Excellent location with views of the lagoon, beach, and marina. Nice condo with balconies for all times of day. Excellent communication from property management
We absolutely loved our stay. The pictures don’t do the view justice. My family and I had an amazing time and Jeannie couldn't have been better at communicating everything.
We had a good experience. The property is very nice, although if you rent via VRBO you do not have access to any of the concierge’s services, etc.
The pictures make it look like the ocean is right up under the linai but it is not. The ocean is a good bit away.
The location can be noisy at night with doors/windows open but it also has a great energy, so it’s a trade off.
We had two families with children stay here. The location is fantastic, close to the beach and the lagoon. The way the unit is setup is very convienient for two families with little ones. The rooms are on other sides of the unit so noise “crying” from either room isn’t to distracting.
Views from the unit are amazing. The unit has beach supplies and all the basics that you need to have a successful trip. Overall we plan on staying here again in the future.

We had everything we really needed during this stay. The apartment was easy to locate and check into. The building itself is on the older side, but everything was working smoothly and it was actually really helpful to have the little convenience store right downstairs in the lobby so that we could stock up on snacks and water.
Biggest perks of this apartment was the VIEW(Just stunning with direct view of the sunset every evening!!!) and the livable space - we had 2 couples (4 adults) during this trip and we had enough space to relax on the lanai and in the living room.
Parking was relatively easy with the valet downstairs - we were paying ~$35 per night, which I'd venture to say was reasonable. The valets were very fast and efficient, we never waited more than 10 minutes from our car.
We loved the condo! It was spacious and clean, just as pictured. It was within walking distance to all of the downtown attractions and shopping but nicely tucked away on the beach. The views were breathtaking, especially the sunsets. This was perfect for our family of five and it could accommodate a couple more. Jeannie was very responsive and an excellent host. You will not be disappointed staying here!
This place is absolutely beautiful! Even though staying in the city I could go to the room and totally feel relaxed with the views and sounds of the ocean. This is exactly as pictured and of course so much better in person. We felt totally lucky to have found this beautiful gem!
The condo looks just as pictured in the ad! We had my wife and I in one bedroom, my in-laws in the other bedroom, and our 12-yr old son on the fold-out bed, which he said was decently comfortable. The condo itself was perfect, with great views (nice sunset view), and the two separate lanais are great to be able to be outside yet avoid sitting in direct sunlight if it gets too warm. Beach is about a 5 minute walk. We opted for the valet parking - slightly more expensive than some nearby parking ramps, but worth every penny for the convenience, and the valet staff were all superb! Property owner was very helpful and responsive to messages via VRBO app very timely. All in all a great experience!
Very clean and safe location. Close to shopping, eating, you can walk to it all.
Top notch communication. We needed a Next day air package from home and Jeannie was the very best to help us. Went above and beyond to help us!! Highly recommend!!
Our group was ecstatic when we opened the doors to this amazing condo. The views are breathtaking. Perfect balcony to catch the beautiful Waikiki Sunset. Our group loved the convenience in location of the Ilikai Building to restaurants and stores. And just a short walk to the beach and lagoon. Will definitely be staying here again.
This rental was great! We had two balconies and amazing views! The property was clean, well taken care of and comfortable. Highly recommend for family or friends!
This property is located in the Ilikai Hotel right on the edge of Waikiki Beach. It is in between the Marina and the Hilton Grand Vacation Complex. It is a lively location with great people watching from the lanai. We had some internet issues when we checked in; Jeannie and Brian responded immediately and fixed the issue. We were very impressed by Brian's diligence as he stayed until 9pm on a Friday. The internet was crucial for us as we were working remotely. The pool is fun and there is direct access to the beach via a short walk. The Ilikai has an ice cream store and convenience store located on the bottom floor along with a cafe and diner. It has an open air lobby which is fun to hang out in. You can walk the entire length of the Waikiki beach starting at the Ilikai. We found that you don't really need a car if you join group tours to explore the island and if you use taxis and uber. There is a good market, "The Food Pantry" just a few blocks away.
Everything was just as described. The views are truly spectacular! We had everything we needed and had a wonderful time. Check-in and check-out couldn't have been easier. Would definitely stay again!
Great floor plan for our family. Sunset views are simply amazing! Short walk to beach, many restaurants close by and shops downstairs in building.
The condo was really nicely updated and very comfortable for 2 couples and a baby. The view was fabulous and we used the lanai’s even with the rain. It was super easy to park and check in. However, we didn’t love the area but that’s not the fault of the property. If you want to stay in this area it’s a great spot!
We really enjoyed this property! Great upgrades and excellent communication from Jeannie. We had a couple of minor issues but she resolved them right away. Would def stay there again!
Very nice condo. Beautiful views.
Would definitely stay again.
We stayed at the property from November 5th to the 13th and it was absolutely amazing! The description is spot on and everything was very clean and well maintained. Would 100% stay there again. Jeannie was super quick to respond to any messages and provided us all the necessary info whenever needed.

We had the best stay here! The views are absolutely breathtaking and the location is perfect. The interior has been renovated and is top notch. The booking and checking in process was seamless. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful house with us and we can’t wait to return. Mahalo!
All the reviews I read for this property were very good except for one. That 1 person must have impossible standards because this property was amazing. Magnificent views, great location, and the host couldn't have been nicer. Only sorry I didn't get to meet her personally before we left to thank her. Will definitely book this again in the future and highly recommend it.
The unit was great and the view spectacular! We really enjoyed our stay.
