My wife and I spent 10 days at this lovely condo in the Ilikai Hotel which is located next to the Hilton Village in the less busy, and, what I consider to be the more up-scale part of Waikiki. It is only about a 5 minutes bus ride from the Ala Moana Mall. The neighbourhood is clean, quiet and safe for walking at night..
The condo is exactly as described in the VRBO listing with a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of utensils, cutlery etc. The condo has a relatively quiet air-conditioner, big screen TV and WiFi. Despite its age, the condo is very clean , well maintained and obviously well cared for by the owners. We were very comfortable staying in this condo.
The bus stops are located right in front of the Ilikai and we used the public transit system for all of our sightseeing while in Waikiki. Ask the bus drivers for directions to the various tourist attractions; they are very friendly and helpful. There are numerous restaurants and fast food eateries in the neighbourhood. There is also a grocery store as well as a couple of rental car agencies just across the street from the Ilikai.
The manager/owner was helpful and accessible to us before, during and after our visit. He was prompt in answering our inquiries, provided clear and precise instructions on how to get into the condo and left a phone number for contacting him if we needed any help. Thank you James.
We will definitely come back again and highly recommend this condo to anyone wishing to have a nice and restful vacation in Waikiki.
