About Dana

First came to Hawaii- Kailua Kona to compete in the Ironman Triathlon competition, fell in love with the Islands and stayed.

Yoga teacher, lover of sports: cycling, swimming, running, surfing

The ocean, Big Island of Hawaii - a place of great beauty, excellent weather and many fun activities.

Honolulu, one of the most pleasant cities with all city advantages without the noise and pollution. Some of the greatest surfing is found on the Islands of Hawaii as well as Kite & wind surfing, Golfing, snorkeling, diving, paddling and more.

On one small Island you'll find everything a city can offer in Honolulu , drive 40min. to the North Shore; country lifestyle and some of the best surf breaks anywhere.

Dana purchased this condo in 2012

Why Dana chose Waikiki

new to VRBO but been a super host on Airbnb

what guests have said on Airbnb:


“Dana was such a lovely host. She was 100% available any time I needed to ask a question. She does a great job of answering most questions in her manual. The room was lovely, open, and spacious. The pictures just do not do it justice! The views were amazing. You cannot even stay at the Illikai Hotel for the price of this Air BnB. We stayed over the Christmas weekend for my sister's island visit. It was such a nice getaway. If you want bang for your buck (and more!) - this is the place to book! I will certainly be booking this unit in the future!”


November 2016

We loved staying in Dana's condo in Waikiki! The view is beautiful and it was just 10 min from the Ala Moana Center. The location is just steps from the lagoon and beach. We definitely want to make another trip to Oahu and would, without a doubt, stay at Dana's again. Thank you!


November 2016

I recently stayed 7 nights in Dana's amazing condo. It was a perfect base to explore Oahu. The location is fantastic. The condo is beautiful and clean. The friday night fireworks are excellent. Dana is fantastic to communicate with and all of the helpful tips for local spots to eat and explore were much appreciated. I highly recommend a stay Dana's.


November 2016

Great location and awesome host! The description is very accurate, will definitely come back and stay again!

What makes this condo unique


November 2016

Spent a very comfortable week at Dana's place. Very nice apartment, comfortable beds, spacious, great views and enjoyed sitting on the balcony and having breakfast. Very relaxing time. Excellent location, close to everything.

Wonderful apartement

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the apartement and would truly recommend it for everyone. It looks just like in the pictures, the furniture is cozy, everything is tidy and clean, and the view is a killer. We loved just sitting on the balcony and watch. Hilton is far away enough to not bother and close enough to be interesting :-). The contact to Dana was always pleasant and very nice, the transfer impeccable. Dana had all the information ready that we needed and much more. Thank you very very much!

Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

Great views of the lagoon and beach including front row seats to Friday night firework show! Clean and spacious room with a good size kitchen that had everything we needed to cook up our own meals so we could enjoy them on the lanai. Or when we decided to go out we walked most of the time. So many dining and shopping options within a 20 minute walk or so. Overall, definitely a five star spot!

Beautiful Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. This was our first VRBO rental experience. Dana was super quick with emails. He sent one email that had all the details we needed to check in and check out. Plus helpful tips on parking and things to do while in Hawaii. This property has everything. Restaurants, markets/ABC, pools, laundry etc. The views from the balcony were so amazing. We watched Luau's from the balcony as well as Friday night fireworks. We watched surfers paddle boarders and outriggers from our balcony.

We needed a car for the week. Dana explained how to find free parking during the day and metered parking at night. Which turned out to be $8 a day. Most hotels charge anywhere from $20 to $35 per day for valet.

The beds were very comfortable and the AC was very quiet. The bathroom and kitchens were very nice. Full size appliances including a very large refrigerator. Coffee maker and blender which we used.

We will definitely try to book this property next year when we come back.

The location is great; The Ilikai is one of the few ocean font properties on Waikiki beach.

Recently renovated to the highest standard, the condo offers luxury 5 star hotel specious room at a reasonable price.

Waikiki is fun filled with great views, surf, shopping, dining, The weather is usually perfect temp. So is the Ocean. Next door at the Modern you'll find some of Honolulu finest dining and best rated night club and bar. Though The Ilikai is in Waikiki, it is at the Northern end which makes this location less crowded.

You will enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean as well as the Lagoon and a partial view of the Diamond Head crater. Surfing is a walk away, so is Magic Island where locals Swim, Stand Up Paddle, do SUP Yoga, Jug.

The Largest Outdoor shopping mall; The Ala Moana is also a short walk, here you'll find grocery, restaurants, cafes and every designer store.
