Overview

Waikiki Condo Rental Photos and Description

High quality condo w/ 1 Bedroom, balcony & full kitchen

Aloha and thank you, for considering our recently remodeled Ilikai Hotel/Condo in the heart of Waikiki. Our 2014 remodeling includes new hardwood flooring, new closet system, and wall separating the living room and bedroom. The main pic you see is taken directly from our lanai (balcony). The lagoon and beach is next to the yacht harbor on the left side. We’ve stayed at many other wonderful rental vacation homes and want to make sure your Hawaii experience is just as wonderful or more!

Our newly renovated contemporary style condo is a large 620sqft 1-Bedroom Condo (including balcony/lanai which is about 120sqft) and can accommodate up to 4 people with a comfy Cal-king size pillow top bed and a double-size sofa bed. (A complimentary twin-size mattress and baby crib are available upon request.) The bedroom is separated from the living room by a wall and a curtain on each side of the wall (for ease of access to the bathroom and balcony). For some privacy, the sofa bed is situated directly behind the wall. Pillows, blanket and linen provided for the sofa bed.

The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with a granite counter, full size refrigerator, glass top stove & oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, utensils, and more. The bathroom has a shower stall w/ granite walls. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and a hair dryer are available.

Our large 120 sq ft lanai (balcony) has a nice outdoor dining table set for 4 people to enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean at every meal. There are also 2 beach chairs, cooler and a boogie board stored in the lanai for guests use. Beach towels are also provided.

The condo also includes all the smaller finer things that will make your stay a complete comfort like a CELL Phone w/ free calls anywhere in the US, 40” LCD flat screen TV in the living room, cable TV, DVD/blue-ray player, free WIFI hi-speed internet (room & lobby), bath & beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, pillows, cotton linen, blanket, and of course, air conditioning. Laundry facility is just down the hallway. Our unit is located on the yacht harbor side of the hotel AND has a direct view of the harbor, ocean and sunset.

There is parking on the streets and valet parking. Street parking is directly behind the building. On one side next to the lagoon is free parking from 4:30am to 10:30pm. On the other side is a large lot with price ranging from $1/hr to $6 for 10hrs. Valet service for a 24hr period is about $30 with unlimited in and out privileges.

If you have a large number of people in your group, we do have 2 additional units inside the Ilikai Hotel. Both units #1436 (www.vrbo.com/381527) and #1630 (www.vrbo.com/498240) are located on the Lagoon side and also have ocean view plus Friday night fireworks.

This is a 4.5 star room w/ much more to offer than nearby hotels like the Hilton or Ilikai Marina with rooms 1/2 our size.

***ABOUT THE ILIKAI***

When you watch the classic Hawaii Five-O TV show, there’s a shot of Jack Lord on a balcony of a hotel. Yup, you guess right. It’s the Ilikai! And instantly, the Ilikai became a landmark in the heart of Waikiki. This lady has been around since the 60’s but has been kept up very well with a recent renovated lobby, earthly toned hallways, and a clean line swimming pool with towel service. Definitely at least a 4 star rated hotel. There are also various shops on the ground floor, a romantic Italian restaurant on the top floor, and across the lobby is the internationally renowned Iron Chef Morimoto’s Japanese fusion restaurant.

About Phi Nguyen

Phi is president of an IT consulting firm and Shinomi is a medical doctor. We've lived in the US, Asia and Europe and have enjoyed all the places and friends we've met along the way. Hopefully, we can return the favor to all our future guests. Both of us are multi-lingual, and though not 100% fluent, will try our best for our international guests. Our residence is also on the island of Oahu and look forward to make your experience a pleasurable one.

Phi Nguyen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Phi Nguyen chose Waikiki

To have a place for our friends and families to visit us. We want all our guests to get the best Waikiki experience, so what better than a beach front location with all the essential amenities and at a great price. It doesn't get much better than the famous Ilikai Hotel.

What makes this condo unique

Modern, stylish, spacious, clean, beach front and very affordable. A great value for Hawaii!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, for everything! We had a great time and had an enjoyable experience here.



We went to Yanagi at your recommendation and loved the sashimi. However, Nico's at Pier 38 has gone upscale and lost its appeal and the food wasn't that great.



We had a blast at Shark's Cove! I think it had the most fish variety compared to a few other snorkeling spots that we went to.

Would absolutely recommend this apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice and comfortable. It was exactly as advertised. The owner Phi was very easy to work with. We loved to sit on the Lanai and watch the sunsets over the harbor. The location is great. Convenient to transportation and shopping. We had a great time and hope to come back.

Better than being at home

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time at this great condo, everything was clean and tidy, plenty of towels, even sand toys for the grand kids and chairs for the oldies to sit on the sand. It is a fabulous central location and our excellent hosts Phi and Shinomi even went the extra mile of providing a cell phone for our use so we didn't have to pay exorbitant cell roaming charges from New Zealand. Oh and did I mention how very comfortable the bed is?

Affordable, Centrally Located Condo With Plenty to Offer

  • 5 of 5

We mistakenly arrived a few hours early, totally my fault not paying attention to the time but were welcomed in and had a chance to rest a bit while the unit was cleaned. Speaking of clean, it was. Something we really appreciate. It is centrally located with a nice sunset view over the harbor. It is well appointed with plenty of kids toys, beach gear, towels, etc. The kids really loved the boogie boards. The king size bed was probably one the best ones I have slept on rental or not. It didn't feel old or worn out. A free cell phone was a suprising plus, especially for us coming from overseas without any cell phone service.

As for the unit itself, the Ilikai is quite an old building but the condo has been updated to meet today's needs. It is larger than the previous condo I rented and did not feel cramped with 2 adults and 2 school age children. Besides, who is hanging out in the condo when there is so much to do in Oahu?? The kitchen features a full size fridge and oven/range. There are plenty of dishes and cookware, too. The bathroom has a walk in shower and large sink with plenty of counter space for us. The water was instantly hot and plentiful. Plenty of towels, toilet paper, shampoo, body soap, etc. so no need to worry about that.

Before the visit, I had many questions/concerns. Phi, the owner, wasted no time in replying answering everything I could throw his way. Unfortunately, when we arrived he was out on business but his wife wrote us a nice note with her contact information should we need anything. There were no issues, but it was good piece of mind to know if we needed anything she was there.

I hope I didn't miss anything but the bottom line is that for the location, ammenities, convenience, and of course price, you won't be disapointed.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO and we were impressed. What you see is what you get. Beautiful views, from a clean well appointed suite. The suite at the Ilikai is a 5 minute walk to the beach, 10 minutes to all the shopping you can handle and several good restaurants. The owners were very accommodating with our late night departure allowing us the use of the room for a few extra hours. Thank you again for that ! We had great success with the rental car company in the Ilikai lobby on 2 separate occasions. From inquiry to receiving a car took less then 10 mins. I would recommend this place to anyone. Cannot wait to return.

リラックスできます

  • 5 of 5

4Fのオーシャンビューのお部屋に1週間滞在しました。 クラシックな雰囲気ですが部屋はとてもキレイで掃除も行き届いています。 ヨットハーバーを近くに観れ、特にサンセットの時間はロマンティックな気分になれます。 生活に必要な物はほとんど揃っており、自炊をするのにも全く困りません。 デリを買ってきて部屋で食べても大きな冷蔵庫やオーブンもあり食器を出して頂けばレストランで食事をしてる気分にもなります。 ラナイで海の音を聞きながらのディナータイムは最高でした(*^0^*)
