Great views of Waikiki beach and marina!

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this place. It was clean, has the most amazing views of the marina and beach and has everything you could need. Janna was really helpful and easily contactable, providing us with useful local information. Lots to do nearby, and easy walk if you want more. We enjoyed Watching the Friday night fireworks from the condo, shopping at the Ala Moana centre, swimming at the beach and eating out at nearby places.

Wonderful location, great view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in July at Jannas penthouse. We loved the location, ease of parking and beautiful accommodations. Everything was found as stated, complete with a telescope to watch the boats come in. Many restaurants are within walking distance and the beach takes less than 10 minutes to reach. Would recommend this location and we will come back.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights at this property. The views were spectacular, being able to see the beach, marina and sunsets. This unit is within walking distance to shopping, groceries, the beach and several beach side restaurants. The marina also makes booking excisions simple.

Perfect condo!!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed 7 nights. It was 3 times experience to stay the Ilikai marina tower, but this penthouse room is the best that I have stayed before. The design is so cool and there was all perfect equipment including washing and drying machine of clothing. It was much convinced as we don't have to go to washing machine room (located in 8th floor?)

Additionally the honor's hospitality was much appreciated. She provided so helpful assistance and flexible support not only for our arrival but also until departing.:) I would love to stay this room when I visit Honolulu again.

Fantastic view!

  • 4 of 5

The view from this condo is truly the best part -- a 180-degree view of the marina and the ocean. We really enjoyed watching the boats and the surfers and the fireworks at the Hilton! Location is very central. The only (small, literally) issue we had was the furniture in the condo -- the bed and the couch are both about 6 inches off the ground. Maybe for shorter people than we are. Kitchen is well stocked with all of the items you could need for cooking, coffee, etc. Condo had a good layout -- sliding door separates the bedroom from the living room so you could have people sleeping in both rooms. We also really appreciated the beach items. We would definitely return!

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo for your kind words about this gorgeous condo "Penthouse Paradise". We are so pleased you had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the view. In regards to the furniture which is clearly shown in the photography and video accurately. The sofa is of normal size and height, the bed has a brand new super high end Sterns and Foster mattress on a futon bed frame which is low profile. As a designer the bed frame gives this condo a modern look and is extremely comfortable. Next visit please try our "Birds of Paradise" in this same building, which has a super high Cal King bed that adjusts to the sitting position you will love it. We will look forward to your return to a "You Found Paradise" condo in the near future. Janna
