JUST REMODELED 2014 ELEGANT RELAXATION AT THE SEA

Waikiki Condo Rental Photos and Description

This Beautiful Re-Model Along With Our Sister Unit VRBO560972 Will Delight You!

Drop your cares and come stay with us at your 'Dream of Aloha' 2014 Re-modeled beautiful one bedroom which includes California King bed, large screen television, WiFi, all new appliances, new wood floors, new ceiling, serenity painted walls, great art, new leather furniture, and all the comforts of home. Everything is new and it's all yours! We also have a sister re-model in VROB listing 560972.

Your room greets with a view of, ocean and lagoon, and Hilton Hawaiian Village. Watch the Friday night fireworks from your over-sized lanai. Dine next door at world famous Morimoto Restaurant or go up the glass elevator to Sarento's at the Top of the Ilikai for drinks in the round and catch a magnificent sunset then watch Honolulu twinkle at night with their breathtaking panoramic views.

Check your e-mail with your free WiFi. There’s a reason Elvis stayed at the Ilikai along with presidents and other notables — maybe it was the 40 year tradition of Hawaiian torch lighting that happens nightly.

The Ilikai is an oceanfront hotel that stands proudly at the entrance to Waikiki, overlooking the most famous beach in the Pacific. A private walkway leads directly from the hotel to the redesigned Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon and the most desirable strand of Waikiki Beach. From our lovely and spacious ocean view room on the 11th floor which faces the ocean and the lagoon, we think you will love it here as we offer relaxing accommodations that suit your every need. You can snorkel, surf, hike, kayak, paddle board, scuba, swim, or shop within minutes and all the equipment is available here. You will never want to leave!

The Ilikai's convenient location allows for easy access from Waikiki to many popular area attractions. You'll find yourself within easy walking distance to Ala Moana Beach Park, Ala Moana Center, Waikiki Beach Walk, and the Hawaii Convention Center. Downtown Honolulu is located only a few minutes away by car. The outlet malls have buses which pick you up here!

Most all our wonderful guests are returning ones and we hope you will come again and again.

About Scott Thomas and Patricia Rust

I am a children's author and travel writer and love meeting my guests from all over the world. Most of our guests return (over half) and a few have become friends of long-standing. I look forward to meeting you, too!

Scott Thomas and Patricia Rust purchased this condo in 2007

Why Scott Thomas and Patricia Rust chose Waikiki

I bought it to live in myself! But families do change! Also, I like to travel to Mediterranean countries and know what a bargain Hawaii is by comparison! Our monthly rate is their weekly rate! You just can't beat Hawaii or the prices! Also, I grew up here and have watched the aloha spirit in action and I haven't found it anywhere else!

What makes this condo unique

The Ilikai is an iconic hotel for a reason. You take the elevator downstairs and you are at the lagoon and ocean. Everyone is friendly. Yesterday, they put in a Food Pantry grocery store which is a fine grocery store like a Gelson's. I'm so excited. They even have a sushi chef in another one! So, I can't wait to see this one. Their coffee place is the best and the grounds couldn't be nicer overlooking the yachts at the Marina where a stroll is always in order. The Ilikai is lovely and has been re-modeled and maintained. That's why folks come again and again!

As Great As It Gets!!!

  • 5 of 5
Excellent value at this price -- I thought we were at the Royal Hawaiian! Luxury everything. The nicest money could buy from fine bedding to towels and we cannot wait to come again -- we've already booked for next year. Scott and Patricia were super helpful in answering all of our questions and sure enough everything was there for us. All we really needed was a small suitcase -- everything was there including their hospitality! The view and beauty of this condo is what is drawing us back. According to my wife, we had the trip of a lifetime! I'm hoping we had one of many.

August Holiday to Attend Wedding

  • 3 of 5
The condo was clean. The kitchen had a nice appliances and backsplash.
I felt there was too much clutter in the clothes closet, the shelves in the closet were full of items that should of been organized to make sure we had room for putting our items as there wasn't a dresser. The amount of things in the closet was unsettling as well as the shelves in the bathroom were all full and no place to put cosmetics and personal items. Items were stored on the balcony that were old and un-necessary, IE: mirror and matching wooden table stored there. We appreciated that we had the ocean view and the locale of the condo.
We had relatives and friends who were also stayed at the Ilikai for the wedding we were attending; their condos shelving and closets were empty for their personal use.

Owner's Response: We have received nothing but five star reviews and one reason is that we provide our guests amenities that no one else does. In the bathroom, we provide baskets for personal items, detergent for the laundry, as well as an abundant number of towels, hair drier, and shampoo and conditioner,etc. But there is still also lots of empty shelf and drawer space.

The bedroom has tons of shelf and closet space but our guests have told us that they like to have an iron and ironing board, extra bedding, a vacuum, and it has to go somewhere. Most guests appreciate that this is Hawaii where space is at a premium, especially at the beach! But there is still plenty of closet space! Tons of it! The two pieces left on the lanai were removed and had been part of the re-model! They were only there for a couple of days! There are so many wonderful things to focus on I really wonder about these kind of guest responses! We could remove all the amenities but then all of our other guests would be upset so we would prefer to keep them all happy because they rave about the amount of storage and closet space which is everywhere!

This condo was exactly what we wanted - clean, tidy, 10 minutes walk to all amenities - and a room with a view! Would totally recommend it to any couple wanting to stay in Waikiki.

Great vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
The place has been reciently remodeled and it shows. Nicely upgraded kitchen, the view is awesome especially the fireworks over the lagoon. Close 5 minute walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. Easy in and out. Kitchen has plenty of cooking ware if you plan on cooking which we did plenty due to the high cost of food in the area. I recommend this unit if you are looking for a great location for a vacation without a rental car.

Elegance and class on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5
The condo is so gorgeous -- as beautiful as a thousand dollar room! I loved being greeted with a gift bag which included wine and macadamia nuts and fine gourmet treats! And they are so welcoming. The kitchen had everything and we were able to enjoy our wine on the terrace when suddenly a Friday fireworks show began which is worth the price of a week's stay alone! It is fabulous! The fireworks reflected on the lagoon and ocean below us! It was amazing. The next morning we could lay in bed and watch the sunrise and then sit outside for coffee and breakfast. Everything was so luxurious like the European sheets and towels and verbena shower gel smelled so Tom Ford and elegant. Everything was provided for us including coffee, tea, popcorn, various foods, and Netflix which we watched from bed or the leather sofa which could adjust positions and was very high tech Italian and cool! We spent the day at the beach and they had beach mats, towels, even blow up toys for we grown ups! It was great! We also swam in the new salt water pool which was heavenly and used the locker rooms by the pool. That night, we ate roof top at Sarento's for a 360 degree island view and they have the best Mai Tai in town and they gave us a free one, too, for complimenting the Mai Tai! Such a gracious stay!

Great deal for the price

  • 4 of 5
Pro's: Great location if looking to stay in town. Near everything and walking distance. This condo has a nice view of lagoon and pool. Was able to sit on balcony and listen to waves. Clean. Appears recently updated. Renter did provide dish soap, trash bags, laundry detergent, etc. There is a seminar downstairs (lasts about 2 hrs) on time shares - if you attend, you can get significant discounts on all your excursions on the island (even if you did not purchase anything). Renter provided a local contact to help us with check in and he was very accommodating. Great price for the stay! Con's: We were a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) which is what condo advertised enough room for. Futon bed was only a foam mattress that was torn apart and one child had to sleep on floor. Only had 9 towels and 4 washcloths, so had to wash often. Iron was from the 1950s, so could not effectively iron clothes. One misconception from pictures is that the condo had a separate bedroom; this condo is a studio. Very limited cooking items and tableware. Since this is a condo rental, the hotel was not very accommodating (they would not even let friends leave items at front desk for us). Overall: I would recommend this condo. There are a couple of small items that could be fixed to better accommodate guests, but it is still a great deal for the price.

Owner's Response: TO CLARIFY: Our motto is: "Let us spoil you!" and everything is brand new -- we have stacks of towels and washcloths! If the 12 towels and 10 wash clothes we supply are not enough, we are happy to supply more upon request! Additionally, beach towels are supplied poolside.

We had completely re-modeled EVERYTHING four weeks before and have stocked the kitchen with everything needed for four people Your home away from home holds two adults on the king-sized bed and up to two adults or children on the double bed which easily makes up from the leather sofa in front of the giant screen television.

This is the first we have ever heard of time share but it does happen at the Hilton Hawaiian Village (where the rooms are twice at much, share the same view, and have no kitchen) next door. We only want our guests to be happy and enjoy their stay on this beautiful island! We provide a boutique concierge service as does the hotel and...your packages and luggage, for instance, can be held, delivered, or dealt with in different locations such as the bell desk or the mail room. This is your home while you are here! Elegant furnishings, linens, great location, free wi-fi, even Netflix, and other goodies abound. "Let us spoil you!"
