About Syndi Chen

I am an avid ballroom dancer. I have been living in Honolulu since 1996 and love living in Hawaii. I also enjoy travelling when I have the chance. I live and work within a few blocks of this condo.

Syndi Chen purchased this condo in 2009

Why Syndi Chen chose Honolulu

I chose to buy a vacation rental in this location because the Ilikai is a Landmark Condominium Hotel. It became famous during the long running TV series 'Hawaii Five-0'. The Ilikai is located steps from the beach and within easy walking distance to the restaurants, shops and entertainment. I bought this property thinking I may choose to live here myself someday.

What makes this condo unique

Staying at this property offers the most beautiful views of the ocean, lagoon, the beach and more as you walk in through the front door. The views get even better as we approach the Lanai. The room is well appointed with a king sized bed, a 42' flat screen cable TV, and a full kitchen. This luxury condominium was fully remodeled in 2008.

Love it! Will be back!

  • 5 of 5
This location is a perfect value! Location location! You can watch the beautiful Friday night (7:45pm) firework show from the patio! Our last visit to Oahu, we stayed at the Hilton. Never again! So much more to offer at this condo!

Kitchen has everything u need! Everything is beautiful! Bathroom, bedroom, accents! I literally took pics to decorate our own room.

The small accents made it clutch! Chocolates on our bed! Snorkels & boogie boards were provided! AC was great! Ambiance made me feel like I was still at the Hilton!

No need for a rental car! Most is in walking distance & the bus system is very efficient & cost effective!

Highly recommend this unit! Syndi always responded within 2 mins of a text. Very convenient!

We will be back!

Simply outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
The accommodations were outstanding. The apartment /condo met my every expectation. It was clean, quiet and the location perfect -- close to Waikiki & Ala Moana Beaches ,the Ala Moana Shopping Center, many excellent restaurants ( eg: The Chart House, Sorento's, The Prince Court etc.) and not that far from some excellent golf courses. I would not hesitate to stay there again!

Very helpful staff and convenient location

  • 5 of 5
My mother and I went to Honolulu recently and Syndi was very helpful. My mom is quite elderly so she needs to rest after a long flight so Syndi arranged it so we could check-in early. Before our visit I emailed her with a lot of questions and she responded quickly and with helpful information.

We arrived on a Friday so we were able to enjoy from the balcony the firework show that the Hilton puts on every week. The unit was very clean and it was as the photos presented. And the location was convenient. The Ilikai is close to Ala Moana shopping center and Waikiki without having to deal with all of the noise of Waikiki.

There's an Enterprise car rental across the street, but the daily valet price of $20 a day is a little pricey, but I live in a city where parking is even more expensive so it didn't bother me too much.

I would definitely consider staying here again.

Look no further, stay here! 5 stars

This was our first time renting by owner. We read the reviews carefully and are very happy with this listing. From the very beginning, we were able to reach the owner before, during our stay and at then end. She always answered her cell right away. Everything was wonderful. We will definitely stay here next time and recommend it to all our friends. Bed was a king and totally comfortable, awesome view, access to all Hawaiian Hilton has without the $300 price tag. Parking was $28/day which sucks, but that is how much all the hotels charge now. IF you add that to the daily rent, it's sill $100 cheaper than Hawaiian Hilton 2 double bed room w/o kitchen. We stayed there 2 years ago and the room was small. Would never waste money there again. The same owner has a bigger suite w/ 2 beds, but they are doubles. So we preferred the king with couch bed for 2 kids. Better view, also.

This building is at the end of Waikiki beach so it's away from the crowds. However, still walking distance from the shops. This place is perfect for family with a small child.

March Madness

  • 4 of 5
Normally, when we go to Honolulu (as often as possible) we stay at the nearby Hale Koa Hotel (military only since I am retired military). This time however, the Hale Koa (HKH) was unavailable so we used this condo at the Ilikai. It was, to say the very least, more than adequate, and in some respects, superior to HKH. Cost was comparable, facilities were larger, amenities were about the same. The only real drawback was that we had to pay $28 per day plus tip for valet rental car parking versus $7 at HKH. Notwithstanding, the valet parking service was superb, convenient, friendly, and a good value at #28+ per day. This condo unit was most comfortable, centrally located, convenient, clean, and a more than adequate substitute for HKH. Notwithstanding, we are somewhat accustomed to our "usual routine" vis a vis Hawaii visits and will, probably still put HKH first as a choice, everything considered. However, we would heartedly recommend this unit as a first choice for those who are ineligible for HKH, and a more than adequate substitute for those who are eligible. Rest assured that if HKH is not available, this will be my first alternate choice (at least until I win mega millions in a lottery and can afford the Trump Tower Penthouse!).
I know I sound somewhat whiny in regard to HKH, but,we have been coming to Oahu for the past 15 years, at least once, maybe twice per year, so, we are probably too set in our ways. All of this is to say that I did, thoroughly (except for rental car parking fee) enjoy my stay at this unit and will tell you that you cannot go wrong if you book it. The Owners have not over hyped it so you won't be disappointed. The unit is clean, well maintained, comfortable, accurately described, extremely easy to: reserve; access; and, available as promised. The pre-stay info was generally good, although I was a bit unsure of how to exactly check in the first day (all one really has to do is to go directly up to the unit, enter the code and make yourself at home) so I made an unnecessary stop at the Ilikai front desk ( they were, however, cool and helpful about it).
So, Nancy (0wner), thank you for making your unit available. You were a pleasure to deal with, our stay was smooth, albeit too short, and enjoyable. For those of you out there contemplating booking this unit, do not hesitate; you will not be disappointed!!

Long time Hawaii visitor and future kama'aina,
Stan
