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.

Quiet, well located condo on marina

  • 3 of 5

The condo at the Ilikai Marina fit my needs for a work-related visit to Honolulu to attend a conference. Importantly, the space was clean and comfortably furnished and the mixed tenant-renter building was quiet. The kitchen was well equipped to make dinners with a small grocery in walking distance. I really enjoyed the top floor balcony view of the marina, larger navy boats/yachts passing by, and the large fireworks display at the Hilton. The host was easily reached by email.

There were a few surprises in the booking and amenities: note a 4% credit card fee will be added. The original posting listed a fitness center but this was corrected by the host upon my arrival as no access was permitted to the fitness center at the nearby Ilikai Hotel. Similarly, the outdoor Ilikai Hotel pool was accessible per the host if I lied and said I was not staying at the Marina but staying at her hotel rental. This was false advertisement of amenities- perhaps the Ilikai Hotel policies had become more strict, but I chose not to use the pool.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for all the kind comments. Penthouse Paradise is a very luxurious condo with designer decor, the view is spectacular. In regards to the fitness facility at the Ilikai Hotel it was available and offered to Ilikai Marina guests however the privilege was pulled right before the guests arrival, which I had no control over. Upon notification I found an alternative fitness facility around the corner that welcomed guests, please note the fitness center is no longer posted on my advertisement. Ilikai Marina does not have a pool.

Awesome view, great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my 2 children and I stayed at Janna's place from Dec25/16-Jan 5/17. Since the beginning Janna was very helpful and any question I had from the parking or the pool she was always very quick to answer my emails and help us. The apartment is located in front of the marina and the view is amazing. We enjoyed the Hilton fireworks on Friday and the one on New Year's Eve. We had just the perfect view. The condo is steps away from the Hilton lagoon and the beach. There are so many restaurants around and you can even walk to Alamoana Park and the Mall. One factor that attracted me to this place was that it has its own washer and dryer machine so you don't have to worry about doing laundry anywhere else. The apartment is nicely decorated and it was just what we were looking for. One thing, people just need to be careful walking around the bed, since it's a small place and the bed is modern and low platform, I ended up with lots of bruises on my legs oooppps. But just as I careful with walking around the bed. In overall we had a great experience and we will definitely recommend Janna's place to our friends and family plus it is for sure our destination when we decide to come back to Hawaii.

Great Condo, Close to Everything in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying in this condo. Amazing views of the Harbor and beach. Owner was extremely nice. It was nice to have a condo instead of a hotel room. Everyone in the building was super nice, we chatted with the locals and received some of the best recommendations for dinner. Close to everything we needed in Honolulu, I was even able to walk to convention center for meetings. I would recommend closing blinds if you are going to beach for the afternoon, it kept the unit cooler when we came back. Definitely will rent this unit again if we come back to Honolulu.

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.
