Great place, great location, great price

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time doing a vacation rental, and Janna made it a fabulous experience. Her instructions were clear and the descriptions and pictures on this site are spot on; the renovations to the place were nicely done. As promised, there was even some beach amenities such as beach towels, umbrella, 2 small beach chairs, and even snorkelling equipment.

We also took advantage of the fridge, microwave, plates and silverware, hair dryer, cable TV, and wi-fi internet. All great perks to have. Even the little things, like a brand new dish sponge and soap and conditioner/shampoo, were provided.

The lanai was really small, and there's no view of the ocean unless you go to the very right of the lanai and veer over the edge, but that's ok. If you want a view of the ocean, step out into the stairwell/fire escape.

We were able to walk in less than 10 minutes to the nearby lagoon and to the Hilton Hawaiian Village hotel, where we were able to sneak into the pools. The Hilton also has fireworks on Friday night at around 7:30-8:00. There are a few quick eats across the street and a couple nicer restaurants in this hotel and the Modern next door.

We chose to rent a car, and Janna provided a parking pass for only $10/day (so cheap compared to everything in Waikiki). But if you don't have a car, the Ilikai is right along the routes of buses and trolleys to get you to the rest of Waikiki.

We only wish we could have spent more days there!

We Found Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Janna for your excellent service..the condo was just as shown and listed. Beautifully decorated, comfortable, spotless, well maintained and a great location.. This was our first time in Honolulu and will definitely come back and hope to book the same condo. Thank you also for the little extras, it was nice to have all the comforts of home.

Noisy At Night

  • 1 of 5

Too much night noise from young people congregating on the street below. Twice that I witnessed the police were called in to manage the crowd. I would not recommend this place to people who value their sleep at night.

Owner's Response: For a super light sleeper from the countryside, staying in a city would be an adjustment. If you read the reviews from my prior guests, you will find this has not been a problem. I've provided sound machines in all of my condos exactly for the purpose of allowing a guest who is use to complete silence to adjust to an active city. Mahalo for choosing our luxury condo for your visit to Waikiki.

Perfect location for shopping and beach.

Janna was a great host - she provided a cheat sheet on all things to do and all of them I followed where amazing. Great location, well appointed studio and Janna was easy to deal with.

small but comfortable

  • 3 of 5

The property is not ocean front like you think ocean front but backs onto a marina... but not this city view condo. The city view is nice though. Older building but kept up. The only two complaints I have are about the bed... and the air conditioning.

The bed is against the wall on one side and a foam mattress on top of a regular mattress. Foam does not breath very well so it makes it hot to sleep in and not the most comfortable.

The air conditioning is supposed to be set at 72 degrees which is still not cool enough but would let the temp inside go up to 76 and one time to 78... had to keep on lowering the temp down and even had to get up in the middle of the night to lower it.

The balcony is so small... there is no way we would go out on it...

For supplies, she supplies coffee and sugar and cream which was lovely... very small coffee pot if you are big coffee drinker.

The place was clean but just needs to give a few more dish clothes and towels... I had only one of each and there is no drying dish rack. It is only a short walk to the beach and loved that there was a cooler and beach chairs in her supply closet. Thank you for that!

It is not like you spend a whole lot of time in the condo but it do the trick for us... Parking for the week costs about $130???

Owner's Response: Mahalo for choosing our slice of Paradise to enjoy Waikiki. In regards to being a Ocean Front condo, "Ilikai Marina" condos are ocean front sitting on the yacht harbor, which is the ocean! This studio clearly states in the advert that it faces the city, mountain side of the building, this time of the year this condo rents for ninety nine dollars per night, I do offer one bedroom condos with full ocean view at two hundred and twenty five per night. The whole building has had new A/C system installed finishing mid Sept 2016 it does have a state of the art digital control panel that can be challenging to understand, hence I provide a video of how to use it, found in your arrival instructions. Which also includes my statement "If I don't know about it, I can't fix it, please contact me with any and all issues." I would have been happy to provide you with a dish rack and more dish towels, I do not like the look of a dish rack in my condos and believe they can collect germs so I choose not to use them. In other words I aim to please. Parking is offered at $10 per day by reserving my parking pass. It was our pleasure to have you as our guests and we are looking forward to your return.
