It is my passion to create beautiful environments in vacation locations. Having fabulous affordable properties to share with others gives me extreme pleasure. I love to receive comments in my guest book about how much fun you had and having you return to this same location over and over again is the ultimate compliment.

Janna MacDowall purchased this condo in 2003

This gorgeous ocean front 1 bedroom, has unbelievable views from every room, being on the corner gives it the advantage of double the window's. The bedroom is enclosed by a solid wall unlike most condo's in Waikiki which use soji sliding paper panels to create rooms. The gourmet kitchen is wonderful to entertain yourself or friends. Location is fantastic being within walking distance to everything and the bonus of being next door to the only resort in Waikiki the 'Hilton Hawaiian Village' and my favorite restaurant Sorrento's at the top of the Ilikai Hotel is truly a bonus.

Unforgettable Hawaiian vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 24, 2009
  • Stayed: Aug 2009
With gorgeous views from lanai and sophisticated decor, we enjoyed each and every moment we stayed in the condo. As we are from Japan, I was somewhat concerned about whether everything was OK. But our host, Janna's hospitable responses were always quick and wiped out my worries right away. Her all comments turned out to be really true. It was all trustworthy business for me.

We took most advantage of the condo's furnishing. Washer, dryer, and dishwasher were especially helpful. Then the complete set of beach gears were available too. On top of that, the location was so convenient that we could walk almost anywhere like Ala Moana Shopping Ctr., Ala Moana Beach Park and Waikiki Beach. Personally I enjoyed jogging every morning. You can pick up so many routes, you'll never be bored.

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Janna for helping me spending such an unforgettable vacation in Hawaii. Hopefully we will go back there sometime soon!

Great get-away

Location, Location, Location,you cannot get a better one than this with unrestricted views of the harbour, ocean, and all the way round the bay to Diamond Head. Being a corner unit there were 2 sets of windows which made the unit light and airy and always 'the view' In the week that we were there we saw fireworks 3 times from the balcony--an amazing show from the 7th floor. We appreciated the comfortable bed and lounging furniture,and also the ease of the second bed. It was very easy to walk thro the Modern hotel to the IIakai pool where we were greeted warmly each time we went and towels provided. For those that love shopping it is an easy walk to the Ala Moana huge shopping centre, but we tried to hit the local markets and get our fresh fruit and vegs there. The weather was not kind to us, but hey, the ocean is warm and the margaritas are perfect

We've just returned from a 10 day stay in lovely Ohau and again we stayed at the Ilikai Marina Apartments. we have stayed there before and just love the location, the view, the proximity to The Bus, the beach and of course Ala Moana Shopping Centre. This time we booked 780 and got the bonus of a corner room with the extra view towards the Hilton Lagoon as well as the view out over the yacht marina and the ocean - Friday and now Tuesday night fireworks are the icing on the cake! The apartment is well set up, clean and light and airy. Having your own laundry facilities is wonderful. The owner communicates well and promptly and all instructions are easily followed . I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone who enjoys the benefits of being in an apartment rather than a hotel room and being away from the noise in central Waikiki.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME IN WAIKIKI

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 18, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for a wonderful 4-week vacation in Honolulu. It was everything we expected it to be -- the description and photos are very accurate.
The condo was clean, well-taken care of, quiet, and stylishly decorated. Every possible item that a traveler would need, including umbrellas for the occasional island shower, was provided. The bed linens and towels were plentiful. The kitchen contained all of the appliances and implements that a cook would need for food preparation. The refrigerator was perfect for keeping cold our bottled water, fruit juices and sodas, fresh fruit (pineapples and papayas), and leftovers from "take-out-meals." The washer and dryer were life-savers, because it enabled us to pack very little in the way of clothing, and soon discovered that we could have brought even less.
The Ilikai Marina is clean and well-maintained by different service companies. Surveillance cameras are installed and monitored by a security company. Trash disposal is convenient through a chute on every floor. Bins for recyclable items are also provided.
The view from this corner unit was magnificent. We could see boats coming in/going out of the marina, and the Honolulu harbor. We saw beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and even a brilliant double rainbow. This is the best viewing location for the twice-weekly fireworks shows (Tuesday and Friday evenings) put on by the nearby Hilton Hawaiian Village.
The unit is conveniently located to Ala Moana Center, Waikiki, restaurants, shopping, and public transportation. We always rent a car for our island adventures, and were able to pay for a parking pass in the adjacent parking structure for the entire month at a greatly reduced price, after presenting our rental agreement.
The Wi-Fi was fast, with protected access. We used it for internet surfing, researching the island's attractions, and reading online newspapers.
We will definitely consider coming back to this condo on our next trip to Honolulu!

Great condo!

The condo was ideally located -- clean and comfortable. It was a great convenience to have the washer and dryer in the unit rather than in a central location for all the condos. Being a corner unit, the view was absolutely fantastic, and totally unobstructed -- you couldn't ask for more. The kitchen was well stocked with coffeemaker, toaster, etc.

The only downside was the rug in the living room. It needed a good cleaning/vacuuming or removal from the condo. That being said, I would recommend this condo to friends.

Mahalo,
Leslie
Owner's Response: Mahalo Leslie for your lovely review and choosing "Pure Paradise" for your 30 day stay. In regards to the brown leather shag rug, I agree it is difficult to clean. My professional cleaning staff uses 2 people to properly clean it before every guests arrival. If you had mentioned your frustration with the rug during your stay, I would have sent them over to clean it. Being a designer I love the rug underneath the zebra skin ottoman but totally understand it's challenges. Some guests that have stayed for long durations choose to roll it up and slide it underneath the sofa. I personally love to look at it, walk on it and enjoy it. Next visit Leslie I can have the rug removed prior to your arrival because I try very hard to make sure my guest find Paradise. We look forward to your return.
Aloha Janna
