Great centrally placed condo

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. The views are to die for, and location is very central. A really lovely place to call home for our week there. We walked to the Ala Moana Centre often. Hired a car for a day, from National Car Rental, (straight across the road) and drove to the North Shore. Visited Pearl Harbour. But we mostly relaxed. We were there when not one, but two hurricanes were due to hit the islands. We departed on the day the first was due, but by then it had petered out to a tropical storm (just some wind and rain). We found communication with the owner/manager was great - all queries answered promptly. We would love to stay again some day.

Fabulous condo

  • 5 of 5
We would echo what many of the other reviewers have stated, this condo has it all.....Sensational views, very clean, exceptionally well equipped, tastefully decorated. In addition, we were well supported by the manager, John, when we had a question.

During our two week visit, we spent many mornings watching the surfers and marina and on Friday nights the fireworks were spectacular right from our window. This condo was so well equipped we thoroughly enjoyed cooking here and also serving breakfast and/or dinner to relatives who were here in the area. The table easily pulled out to accommodate the five of us.

We weren't sure what to expect being in the center of waikiki...it's a beach and a city. The beach is beautiful, busy, but also easy to walk to a more private spot. We enjoyed walking the "boardwalk" after dinner and listening to different music venues as well as enjoying fire dancing. It is also big city with lots and lots of amenities, shopping, and hustle-bustle, too. We live in the country and the city soundscape is prominent so for us we needed to keep the air on and doors closed at night. An advantage to being in this city is you do not need a car as the bus route is a block away and will take you anywhere you want. We also walked a lot and loved it. We did rent a car for a day to visit the north shore and the Polynesian Cultural Center but otherwise a car would get in the way. Grocery stores and restaurants of all types are abundant and a walk or bus ride away.

This place made our vacation a true pleasure in every way! Mahalo and aloha!

Wonderful Place to stay in Waikikii

  • 5 of 5
The view from this great condo is even better than pictured online. This quiet, conveniently located condo is a gem. My husband and I spent 1 week here recently, we enjoyed great weather every day and friendly people. We did not feel the need to rent a car. Some of the activities we enjoyed included walking to Ala Moana Center (forgot to bring my camera charger, found one at center!) which is only a couple of blocks away. Enjoyed lunch at Neimen Marcus while there. Used "The Bus" several times to get around town, bus stops close by to condo and Karen and Steve have bus schedules in condo. So glad I had brought my IPad, the WI-fi at condo was speedy! Lots of walks, lunch at "Dukes" on the Beach at The Outrigger Waikiki. Shoppes at the Hilton Hawaiian Village were fun-and don't pass up the ice cream store! We went on 2 small guided tours, 1 day to northern Oahu and another tour to Pearl Harbor/Honolulu city. We used discoverhawaii.com for the tours and would recommend them if you like small group tours. We noticed a quaint "local" pub at ground level of building by the harbor....good for a quick sandwich and/or happy hour---Bud Lite $2.50!! We met folks from literally all over the world. We felt very safe walking, busing, discovering Waikiki. The condo was perfect for us and hope to visit again. Thanks to Steve and Karen and a special thanks to their assistant, Stephanie, who was so quick to respond via email to any of my questions. Aloha!

Owner's Response: Dear Joe and Jan,
We are thrilled that you loved our condo! You enjoyed and did all the things we love to do when we go to Honolulu, and the convenience of the location and the view can't be beat! Thank you for writing such a complete and lovely review! We really try to provide all the conveniences so you will enjoy your stay in the ILIKAI Marina. When I enter the condo, it's like all the cares in the world are left behind, and we can breathe peace and revel in Honolulu! Come again!
Sincerely, Karen and Steve

A Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for two weeks in this bright condo with amazing views. The panoramic vista provided by the oversized door and windows (a real plus that this is a corner unit) is what greets you upon entering. This nicely-decorated condo was very clean and well-maintained. It was very well equipped right down to extra batteries for the TV remote. We spent a lot of time on the balcony; although quite small, we enjoyed watching the comings and goings of fellow tourists, surfers, and boat traffic both on the ocean and in the marina. The beach was very accessible and the beach chairs with the covered sunshades drew lots of enviable comments from other beach goers. We also enjoyed the weekly fireworks displays from the Hilton Hawaiian Village, as well as all the nightlife and activities that are part of the village. We rented a car for one day and drove around most of the island. The car rental agency was just across the street, so was very handy. The rest of the time we either walked, took the city bus or booked a tour shuttle to a variety of locations around Waikiki/Honolulu. We found the bus website (www.thebus.org) to be very useful. By typing in your start location, your destination and the approximate time you'd like to go, the website provides info on what bus you need to get on as well as what route it takes. Very handy. We used 'TheBus' for transportation to the Bishop Museum (Hawaiian Natural and Cultural History). This is an excellent museum full of artifacts of Hawaii and also includes a planetarium with presentations about the Hawaiian night sky and about how the Polynesians used the stars to find their way to Hawaii. We also took TheBus to Diamond Head. Hanauma Bay is a wonderful snorkelling site. We searched online for tours and there are lots. The 'tour' includes transportation and (sanitized) snorkelling equipment. BTW, there's a charge for entrance to Hanauma Bay no matter what tour you choose. When you stand on the balcony, look to the right and you'll see Ala Moana Park. This is well-used by the locals and is great for walking. To get from the airport to the condo, we took a cab. For the return, we took a shuttle...picked us up right at the door.
We were very pleased with the professional and efficient manner of the condo owner, Steve, and the property management company's rep, Stephanie at Silverado Gardens. Communication was timely and informative, and we would definitely recommend the renting of this condo to our friends.

Owner's Response: Dear Marilyn, Thank you for such a complete and complementary review! We try to please everyone and keep the beautiful condo in top shape. We are thrilled that you enjoyed it, as the location is perfect, right on the water at the end of the best part of Waikiki, and all the amenities are in the condo for your use, including the chairs with the built-in shades to protect you from the sun! Honolulu is just the best place to be, especially when you are cold, or want a total rest and relaxation! Our building is the only one ON Waikiki Beach where you can rent a condo, rather than a hotel room, which saves you a lot of money and is still at the beach, with our breathtaking views!
Most sincerely,
Karen and Steve

Waikiki waterfront condo

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, wish we could have stayed longer. Everything was as stated online and met or exceeded our expectations. Steve was promt in responding to our questions and great about accommodating our needs. The condo was nicely appointed, comfortable, and quiet. The views were wonderful, the location very convenient to beaches, restaurants and shopping. We did not need a car, which was great. If we return to Honolulu we would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing such a wonderful review! We receive a lot of personal notes from our guests raving about this beautiful condo on the ocean here in Honolulu, and we appreciate when our guests take the time to also write a review. We take a great deal of care and pride in keeping the condo in pristine condition and value the comfort of our guests. Honolulu is the most restful, elegant, and fun vacation spot; the food is so delicious on the island, the night life abundant, the swimming always warm, and the weather perfect year round, so what's not to like!!!

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Wow! views views views... We booked condo through PayPal, very easy process. Condo was very clean upon arrival. Steven and Karen were great to deal with. during our visit there was work going on in the building, owner called to make sure we knew, we did as there was a note posted in the elevator, but it was nice that they called. As other people have stated, there are two ways to get to beach, we did both ways outside and through hotel. We liked going through the hotel adjoined because by the pool they have a spot with showers where you can rinse the sand off your feet and chair legs. We sat in front of the Hilton as suggested, close to bathrooms and food. We rented a car for the day....my husband went online found a site with discounted rates...they pick which rental company ours was through Alamo, we rented a mustang convertible for 79.00 which included all taxes and fees... we did call around and were quoted 160.00 to180.00 we picked it up at the rental place across the street. on Ala Moana. A few of the places we ate are: Cheese cake factory... Ruth Chris steak house ... Italian restaurant at the Hilton....for dinner all were good. We ate breakfast at tropics at the Hilton, we had the mahi mahi eggs benny very good,...... If you want a inexpensive breakfast, across the street on Ala Moana Blvd. called Snappers 5.99 for bacon eggs ....nothing fancy but good. Thank you to Steven and Karen for sharing their beautiful condo... we will be back!
