About Janna MacDowall

It is our passion to create beautiful environments in vacation locations. Having fabulous affordable properties to share with others gives me extreme pleasure. I love to receive comments in my guest book about how much fun you had and having you return to this same location over and over again is the ultimate compliment.

Janna MacDowall purchased this condo in 2003

Why Janna MacDowall chose Oahu

This gorgeous ocean front 1 bedroom, has unbelievable views from every room, being on the corner gives it the advantage of double the window's. The bedroom is enclosed by a solid wall unlike most condo's in Waikiki which use soji sliding paper panels to create rooms. The gourmet kitchen is wonderful to entertain yourself or friends. Location is fantastic being within walking distance to everything and the bonus of being next door to the only resort in Waikiki the 'Hilton Hawaiian Village' and my favorite restaurant Sorrento's at the top of the Ilikai Hotel is truly a bonus.

What makes this condo unique


'Ilikai Marina Parking' located at 1765 Ala Moana Blvd next door to the Ilikai Hotel offers a privately owned parking structure attached to 6 of my condo's, charging a daily rate of $20, the Yacht Harbor public parking is $10 per day (no in or out's) or $1 per hour. I offer a Parking Pass that I offer to my guests at $10 per day (complete stay only) with an advanced reservation. I have one pass so if interested you will need to reserve it. Ilikai Hotel offers valet parking for $30 per day.

Guestbook comments from the manager


Miyake Takashi

最高のロケーションで、海までもタウンまでも簡単に移動できます。今回私たちは友人の結婚式で4名でホノルルを訪れましたが、最高にいい時間を過ごせました。とても綺麗で大きなキッチンがついた部屋は最高に過ごしやすく、洗濯機、乾燥機も完備されとても便利でした。角部屋でしたのでとにかく景色が最高です。サンセット時間は部屋から見たことのない美しい景色です。家族で過ごすには最高のコンドだと思います。駐車場も完備されているので、レンタカーを借りてイージーに移動できました。オーナーJANNAさんの親切なアドバイスも大変助かりました。またホノルルを訪れた際にはまた、ぜひステイしたいです。JANNA ありがとうございました。

  • 5 of 5

We spent 31 nights here between August and September. Loved every minute. We have been coming to Waikiki regularly and have always looked at renting this condo, but it has always been booked out, until this trip. Now know why. It is perfect. The condo was just the same as pictures and very clean. Janna was very helpful and answered our questions very promptly. One of the added benefits for us was having a washing machine (and dryer). Sad that my life has come down to a washing machine! (Only joking). Friday night fireworks were just great from Lanai. It was very hard for us to leave, but know we will be back.

Great Location, Great Views, Great Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival to the building from airport by taxi that was $40 including tip. (Metered rate $34) We took 5-6 steps to landing turned left to elevator 7th floor. This is the end unit so it is just inside the 7th floor entrance from elevators. The condo was nice and cool as soon as we opened the door we relaxed on the comfortable couch with chase lounge that is lovely. We checked the kitchen and then took off walking to Walmart that is less than a mile. We took back packs with us to carry our stuff back. Then we walked back to the condo. (a bit heavy, so next time I would take a taxi from Walmart back OR check the bus) Once we got unpacked and cleaned up a little we took off again walking around and checking out what is close by. Everything is close. The next morning we walked to the Royal Hawaiian area and did a bit of shopping then had lunch at Azure (expensive but awesome) then we just enjoyed ourselves around town and the island. We did a few tours and saw many things. We took the bus a few times and we even rented a car from National Car Rental (a block away) The condo was home at this point and it is super relaxing place. We made our own breakfast at the condo every morning and a few dinners. Coffee maker was large enough for several cups. Just relaxing in the robes (provided) on the couch or balcony drinking coffee in the mornings was a treat. The small balcony was fine for having a cup of coffee and taking in the sights and sounds of the marina below. We did not hear street noise except the garbage truck one morning. I was awake already, if I had been asleep I would not have heard it. The large windows are great for sunrise and sunset views that are breathtaking. Watching people at the lagoon was also a treat. It is a public lagoon and easy to get to if you done want to deal with waves. Super relaxing place. It is an older building that is on the end of Waikiki and the area is not super high in foot traffic and seemed to be a safe area to walk around and enjoy all that Honolulu offers. Just a few blocks away from everything. Plenty of cookware and dishes for meals. It was a great place for us as a couple. We loved it.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo and its phenomenal view is truly as gorgeous as the photos. Additionally, the condo is bright, cheerful and in pristine condition. The location has much to offer for lovely walks, shopping, dining, etc. Janna's instructions and recommendations are very clear and easy to follow. We loved our five day stay and plan to come back soon! A couple of our favorite activities were happy hour at the rooftop bar Sky Waikiki and a sunset cruise on a catamaran off the beach in front of Duke's.

Room with a view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! When we first opened the door we were welcomed with a wow factor view, surprise ocean music, chocolates on the pillows and a welcome note explaining everything to us. This condo had everything we needed for our stay, it was clean and had amenities that made our holiday a lot easier. We enjoyed the fireworks on a Friday night and had the best seats in the house from our corner aspect view. We sat on the balcony sipping our drinks while everyone else was fighting for a parking place. Janna was very helpful and kept in touch with us at all times making sure all was well. We toured the whole island and enjoyed every minute. It was really hard to leave this beautiful paradise island!

Excellent choice.

  • 5 of 5

Decorated nice to give you a nice feel and eliminates the sterile feeling you sometimes encounter in a vacation rental.

Having a washer and dryer was priceless.

Location is great.

Condo is well maintained and clean.

Will rent again in the future.

What a view!

  • 4 of 5

This place really has it all. The view was amazing and we timed our stay to make it for the Friday evening fireworks that are set off by the hotel next door. It is only a 6 minute show but very well done. The beach is amazing, with plenty of places nearby to relax and get some sun. CJ's nearby was great for breakfast especially if you like macadamia nut pancakes! Everything is expensive but that is Hawaii.

Now the room was very comfortable with a full kitchen that I wished we had used more. Next time we will go to Costco and stock up and save some bucks. For me what matters most in my lodging is a shower with good water pressure and a comfortable bed as well as pillows and thankfully this place succeeded with both my requirements. This place had all we really needed. I recommend this place highly. We paid the $20 a day for parking which is to be expected.

My only complaint was neither my partner nor myself could figure out the damn tv. Sometimes you just want to chill a bit in the evening before hitting the bed, but this tv seriously needed some step by step directions. Overall, great experience!

This very special condo has a 'Top Chef' designed gourmet kitchen that includes a Sub Zero refrigerator, Corian counter tops and much more. You may create your own tropical delights to entertain. Or don't feel like cooking? Three 'Best in Honolulu' restaurants are within a one-minute walk: the Chart House, Outback Steak House, and Sorrento’s Top of the 'I.' The Red Lobster and the Harbor Pub are also on the first floor. All this within reach by a phone call to deliver or a one-minute walk.

Shopping at the famous Ala Moana Shopping Center is reached by a short stroll. The heart of the pulsating Waikiki district is also within easy walking distance, or can be reached conveniently via the Waikiki trolley which stops regularly in front of the Ilikai Marina lobby.
