About Patricia Rust
I, Patricia, am a travel writer so I know what I look for. I tried to bring every aspect of a traveler's comfort to you in terms of joy, ease, and relaxation in this tropical paradise. As a travel professional, I have accumulated a lot of knowledge which I have translated into this condo in terms of beauty, luxury, and serenity. I provided for everything in remodeling that I look for in travel -- the entire unit was gutted and re-outfitted with new everything and the finest in Italian and European luxury items and new appliances throughout. Enjoy!!! Vrbo 213994
Patricia Rust purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Patricia Rust chose Waikiki
I bought this 'Dream of Aloha' to live in myself. I must have looked at a kajillion condos and having lived in Hawaii I knew them all! The Ilikai has the others beat hands down! And mine has the perfect view! I asked the hotel desk which was best and they said '28's and that's the one I bought for me! I decorated it with the finest money could buy but circumstances didn't allow me to live there yet so I am using it as a vacation rental so that other people can enjoy it in the meanwhile. I keep the rate competitive and I like making new friends from all over the world!
What makes this Condo unique
Convenient to everything, this location can't be beat! Shopping, swimming, surfing -- everything is at your fingertips! It doesn't get any better than this! There is a reason everyone from Elvis to our Presidents have stayed here. And it is gorgeous, well run, and the new relaxation pool can't be beat! It's a one of a kind!

Perfect location and view!
This was our first time to Hawaii and we are already talking about going back. We would definitely stay at Patricia’s condo again (thank you Patricia for sharing your piece of paradise with us)! We cannot say enough about the view and location. No need to rent a car. And you are steps from the beach! Our daughter went surfing for the first time (dukes lagoon in lobby of Ilikai) and cant stop talking about the fun she had! So many amazing memories and can’t wait to return for more! Mahalo!
Milestone birthday vacation
My family of three had a wonderful time in Oahu. Patricia and her staff were very responsive to our inquires. The condo is in a wonderful location. We were able to watch the luau from the lanai every night. The beds were comfortable including the couch that turns into a bed. The condo has beach towels, boogie boards and other gear which we used on our daily outing to the beach. We also saw sea turtles several times while swimming; a free experience many people pay for. I would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful condo at the Ilikai Hotel. Best suite we've rented at the Ilikai!
We always stay at the Ilikai Hotel when we visit Waikiki. We love the location and the property. Of all of the condos we have rented at the hotel, this one is the best! The condo has a wonderful view looking out over the Hilton beach, lagoon and Hilton gardens, and in the other direction you can see Diamond Head and glimpses of the main Waikiki beach. It also overlooks the stage area for the nightly Hilton luau with perfect views of all of the entertainment. The lanai is also the perfect location to view the Friday night fireworks. The suite itself is very clean and nicely decorated with lovely ocean colours. The bed is very comfortable, with nice, clean crisp linens. Lots of clean towels in the bathroom as well as beach towels, and there are beach accessories on the deck. The Ilikai has two pools and is walking distance to the Ala Moana mall, and easy access to both the Hilton beach and lagoon, or the local Ala Moana beach. Patrica is an excellent hostess and is very attentive to any of your needs, and provided a lovely welcome treat of wine and chocolates, which is a thoughtful touch. We will definitely book this condo again, and will recommend to friends and family. Mahalo for a wonderful stay!
Nicely remodeled, upscale, safe area
Nicely remodeled in an upscale, safe area with plenty to do within walking distance. Beautiful views of the ocean and swimming pools. No need for a rental car expense, as there are plenty of options for transportation.
Great relaxing place!!
Had a great time there with a fantastic view of the ocean!!
Staying at Ilikai
Nicely located. Apartment is small but very functional. We enjoyed our stay for a week.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you stay with us again in the future!
We remodeled another condo here # 560792 and it was so successful that we decided to do this one, too. It is a few floors below in the same stack and we did this in a different color scheme of aquas for the ocean and greys to relax and soothe. Everything you can need or want is provided and we aim for the personal touch with a full kitchen, hair drier, and your detergent and fabric softener. lol Morimoto, a top restaurant on the island vies with Sarentos for that honor maybe with one or two others but they are both right here! You can club there or watch the fireworks from the best view in town -- 1928 which faces them directly! Wow!!!
Kayaking and paddleboats are available in the newly done Duke Kahanamoku lagoon outside with its private beach right next to the ocean's beach where you can surf, snorkel, and ride outrigger canoes! There is also a Catamaran and you can decide what to do from your condo -- do your own surf report -- do all the sports -- you'll never want to leave. Everything is just a short walk from your condo! The shuttle takes you to the outlet mall and across the street is world famous Ala Moana Shopping Center. The property is located at the beginning of the Waikiki beach walk which takes you to Diamond Head along the beach on one side and along world class shops on the other. The grounds are lovely and the glass elevator takes you to the top of the Ilikai for great dining or drinks and entertainment. Choose surfing, snorkeling, swimming, boating, paddle-boating, sunning, all right outside your door in the pool, lagoon, or ocean -- all the facilities and equipment are there and available to and for you!!!! Plus, being in such sophisticated surroundings, you may never want to venture out, but if you do, you'll find everything a stone's throw away! And, it's as quiet as a country lake.
