Luxury 1 bedroom (converted to studio) view at the Ilikai

This rental is on the 21st floor of the Ilikai Hotel with a yacht harbor view. This 1 bedroom apartment has been remodeled into a large 500 sq ft studio and is absolutely stunning. High end materials were used throughout the apartment. We used beautiful granite for the counter tops and back-splashes, and travertine stone tiles for the flooring throughout the unit, as well as the lanai. The kitchen has cherry wood cabinets and new appliances. The bathroom has the same cherry wood cabinet for the vanity, a new travertine tiled shower, extra large mirror and custom glass shower doors. Lighting has been upgraded in all rooms. Free local and long distance calls to the USA , Canada and Puerto Rico. Cable broadband internet provided free. We have a 46' Samsung internet connected LED TV, BluRay Player w/internet connection, and iHome docking station for iPod, iPhone, and iPad. We've also installed a safe to store your valuables. The 2 full sized beds can be pushed together if you desire as they are on wheels!

About Mark and Christine McCune

We are husband and wife kamaaina (local) owners that wish to share our beautiful vacation home and aloha with you.

Mark and Christine McCune purchased this condo in 2011

Why Mark and Christine McCune chose Waikiki

We love the location of the Ilikai Hotel, it's at the entrance of Waikiki providing access to restaurants and night life, while still a short walk to the Ala Moana shopping center for shopping and food. You can walk down the coast to Waikiki Beach or cross the Ala Wai Canal bridge and go to Ala Moana Beach Park for beach activities and barbecues!

What makes this condo unique

The studio apartment is on the quiet side of the Ilikai which faces the yacht harbor marina. The sunsets are stunning and the view changes everyday. You can even see whales during the season, watch surfers, and see boats coming in and out of the harbor. There is nothing more calming than sitting on the large lanai enjoying some food and a drink while the sun sets over the Pacific ocean.

Wonderful apartment - Perfect in every way !!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing apartment, spotlessly clean, has every piece of kitchen equipment you could possibly need for self catering which we mainly did, and in a wonderful position on the 21st floor for the most stunning views, night and day, from the lanai where we sat and ate at every opportunity. Falling asleep with those views is priceless ! The Ilikai is a lovely hotel and from the apartment to the beach is literally only minutes in the lift and down the walkway from the hotel lobby. It's also perfect for getting to anywhere in Waikiki. We walked or ran along the Ala Moana canal every morning and walked along the main strip in the evening as shops are open till 11pm and it's a lovely stroll. The Ala Moana shopping mall is brilliant for even more shopping and only a 5 minute walk from the Ilikai. If you're thinking of hiring a car it's so worth it as there are wonderful beaches to visit and driving is easy if you plan your route beforehand. We parked in the harbour car park every night and the free parking area around the Hilton lagoon in the day if we were around as it worked out really reasonable and cheaper than the Ilikai itself, was easy to do and we could see the car from the lanai.

We took the Pink route trolley ride from the T galleria mall for $2 each as we didn't want an actual sightseeing trip, just a little circular trip round (takes approx 60 mins) Try the wonderful ice cream at Lapperts in the Hilton Hawaiian village next door to the Ilikai. Also take the 'Mai Tai' catamaran across the bay which you can get on straight from the beach, great fun and not too expensive. This was our 5th visit to Oahu and we're still as smitten with it. It's a beautiful island with plenty of things to see if you don't want to spend all your time on beaches and is clean and safe.

Mark & Christine had thought of all sorts of little things to make the holiday experience easy and stress free; coolbag, beach towels mats/towels, chairs for the beach etc. The beds are so comfortable, there are plenty of clean towels and the TV and Internet facilities are great.

Communication with Mark & Christine was clear, prompt and helpful throughout and as we were travelling from the UK it gave us greater confidence to trust that everything would be OK. It was our 30th Anniversary and they'd very thoughtfully left us some lovely chocolates on arrival. We would recommend this apartment without hesitation and will definitely book again when we return.

We'll never forget this special place

  • 5 of 5

What a great studio apartment! This 21st floor unit has a wide lanai with a view of the marina, the blue sea, and the incredible sky, including sunsets, moonrises, pink clouds. Hawaiian music sometimes floats up in the early weekend evenings from the hotel grounds below, where small bands and hula dancers perform. The Ilikai Hotel is located perfectly for getting around Oahu. We caught buses everywhere, and walked a great deal, too, never needing a car. The local beaches are lovely, particularly our favorite, Ala Moana Beach Park, right across from the Ala Moana Center. We swam there almost every morning. We shopped for food at local markets and cooked most of our meals in the well equipped kitchen. We ate our meals on the lanai. So relaxing and lovely. The TV is excellent, with internet connection and good programming for evenings when we were tired and ready to rest. Christine and Mark are excellent hosts. They called us when we arrived, offered to do whatever we might need and were very welcoming and accommodating. Overall, this unit is a great way to have a successful vacation in Honolulu. We stayed for 33 nights and only wish we could have stayed longer. We're going back next year.

Owner's Response: Aloha Alan & Sharman! Your review of your stay with us was absolutely the most descriptive and melodic review we've ever had! You captured the nuance of the music, sound and the wonderful sky painting a true Hawaiiana holiday experience while lounging on the apartment lanai. Just a wonderful review! You are the most friendly and warm people we've met, we're so happy you stayed with us and we're thrilled you've already booked again with us for next year! Please keep in touch and let us know how we can make your next trip even better! Mahalo Nui Loa, Mark & Christine

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to the owners for having a beautifully furnished and a well maintained and spotless unit. The kitchen has all the cooking needs anyone would need while on vacation. The views are awesome of the marina, sunsets and channel. The location is prime being walking distance to Ala Moana mall and Waikai beach. We had a great time.

Thanks

Great home base for Waikiki visit

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property through VRBO and it is everything as described. It is so nice to be located within walking distance of popular beaches and attractions without the hubbub of resort chaos! The hotel is half rentals, half guests and even though we are not officially 'guests', the staff is very accommodating and helpful. We are in a unit on the 21 st floor. We have a million dollar view of the marinas below, the channel to the ocean, Ala Moana surf break and best of all, the sunsets are incredible! The unit is well appointed and kept up to high standards. Just right for my husband and me.

We spent one afternoon at the pool. It is not one of the huge tropical lagoons like the pools next door, but it was clean, towels are provided, showers and restrooms are on site. Loungers are in high demand....we had to sit for awhile before two were available.

Grocery stores are three blocks away, Food Pantry and Don Quixote. 'Good' prices if there is such a thing in this town! Two delicious restaurants are on site, plus a little market that has inexpensive coffee. There is also Aroma Caffe serving fancy coffees. Two shopping malls are located nearby if you are into shopping while visiting Paradise. Buses and shuttles stop right in front and can take you anywhere around the entire Island. If you do have a car, the $28 per night parking is extremely reasonable. We would stay here again and highly recommend this property!

Perfect Base for Waikiki Visit

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and reviews are completely accurate. Great location, fantastic amenities, beautiful sunset. The building itself is a little bit tired, but the location and this particular unit are so worth it. We took the beach chairs down to the beach every day! Mark and Christine were great to deal with. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Aloha Susan, We appreciate the time and effort spent to write us a great review! We're so happy you liked our apartment and view! The Ilikai Hotel is a historical landmark and has the large, airy Hawaiian atmosphere new hotels can no longer capture and the location is perfect for beach access, restaurants and shopping! Renovations are continuous and there are more exciting projects planned! We would love for you to come back and visit us again! Mahalo, Mark and Christine

Notes:
The apartment is a condo in the Ilikai hotel. This was originally considered a 1 bedroom when they used japanese shoji doors as room dividers. Over time everyone has removed the doors to open up the view and give space to the apartment. Now it's a large studio apartment, 500 sq. ft inside with a 120 sq ft lanai. We have black out curtains and brand new high-end european furniture from a local furniture store named Inspiration. We have installed a safe for you to keep your valuables secure.
