Oahu Condo Rental Photos and Description

High Quality Condo W/ 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Full Kitchen And Balcony

** About Our Condo***

Aloha and thank you, for checking out our newly listed and renovated condo (Unit 1630 on the 16th Floor) in the heart of Waikiki. We’ve stayed at many other wonderful rental vacation homes and want to make sure your Hawaii experience is just as wonderful or more!

Our modern condo is about 620 sq ft in size (including balcony/lanai which is about 120 sq ft) and can accommodate up to 4 adults. We have a comfy cal king size bed with 500 count Egyptian cotton sheets in the bedroom and a full size sofa bed in the living room. (Baby crib and stroller are complimentary and available upon request.) The bedroom is separated from the living room by a solid wall and a curtain on each side of the wall (for ease of access to the bathroom and balcony). For privacy, the sofa bed is situated directly behind the wall. Pillows, blanket and linen provided for sofa bed. (There is also a portable mattress if the kids prefer their own bed.)

The kitchen is modern and fully equipped with a granite counter, full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, utensils, and more.

The bathroom has a granite covered wall shower stall w/ removable shower head. Hair dryer, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and 100% Egyptian cotton towels are provided.

The lanai (balcony) has a nice dining table w/ 4 chairs to view the ocean and fireworks while dining. There are also 2 beach chairs, a portable cooler and 4 beach towels provided for our guests.

The condo also includes all the smaller finer things that will make your stay a complete comfort like a 40” LCD flat screen TV in the living room, cable TV, DVD/blue-ray player, free WIFI hi-speed internet (room & lobby), CELL PHONE, free calls anywhere in the US, extra towels, pillows, linen, blanket, and of course, air conditioning and ceiling fan. Laundry facility is just down the hallway. And one of the best features is that our unit is located on the cool side of the hotel AND has a direct view of the ocean and Friday night fireworks from the beach!

There is parking on the streets and valet parking. Street parking is directly behind the building. On one side next to the lagoon is free parking from 4:30am to 10:30pm. On the other side is a large lot with price ranging from $1/hr to $6 for 10hrs. Valet service for a 24hr period is about $30 with unlimited in and out privileges.

This is a 4.5 star room w/ much more to offer than nearby hotels like the Hilton or Ilikai Marina with rooms 1/2 our size.

If you cannot find availability, please consider our other ilikai units (VRBO Listing #433144 and VRBO Listing #381527).

***About The Ilikai***

When you watch the classic Hawaii Five-O TV show, there’s a shot of Jack Lord on a balcony of a hotel. Yup, you guess right. It’s the Ilikai! And instantly, the Ilikai became a landmark in the heart of Waikiki. This lady has been around since the 60’s but has been kept up very well with a recent renovated lobby, earthly toned hallways, and a clean line swimming pool with towel service. Definitely a 4.5 star rated hotel. There are also various shops on the ground floor, a romantic Italian restaurant on the top floor, and across the lobby is the internationally renowned Iron Chef Morimoto’s Japanese fusion restaurant.

Phi Nguyen purchased this condo in 2013

Why Phi Nguyen chose Oahu

To have a place for our friends and families to visit us. We want all our guests to get the best Waikiki experience, so what better than a beach front location with all the essential amenities and at a great price. It doesn't get much better than the famous Ilikai Hotel.

What makes this condo unique

Luxury, Beach/Ocean front/view at a great price! AND we're located on the cool side of the building facing the Hilton beachfront.

Best condo. Best value

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for our daughter and grandson who were coming for a soccer tournament from an outer island. Our main priority was that they be in a secure setting being as they would be alone. This property provided the secure space and so much more. The property provided a beautiful setting, clean up to date decor and all the extras a small family could need. Furthermore the owners were very pleasant to deal with and most helpful. Thank you for providing the perfect spot for my family

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with two small children (4 and 6) spent 5 days in Honolulu in this Condo. It was very clean with everything needed! The location is perfect and the view is spectacular! The sofa bed - for small children is OK but actually only one adult can sleep comfortable. I would choose it again in case of stay of Oahu/Honolulu.

Nice condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and stayed here for 5 nights. The condo was well appointed and had everything we needed. The only negative we found was that the fold out sofa bed was only really big enough for one person to sleep comfortably on, luckily my parents were staying in another condo so we were able to have one of the kids sleep there. The location was great, beautiful view over the beach and only a short walk to the Ala Moana Shopping Centre. Would definitely recommend it but for a smaller group.

Amazing little condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Phi & Shinomi's condo in the Ilikai hotel for 6 nights in April. This was the best way to enjoy Waikiki with all the comforts of home yet in a resort setting. The condo had all the things you didn't want to bring, like shampoo/conditioner, beach chairs and towels, moisturiser for that inevitable sunburn and we even left sugar and tea for the next guests. It is the small things that made this stay so good. Ice cubes ready in the freezer, tissues and ample toilet paper (as I said it was the small things that mattered). The view from the Lanai was fantastic, you had full views of the beach, lagoon, the luau on the roof of the Hilton hotel car park and don't forget the firework display every Friday night @ 7:45. Just take a drink outside, sit down and enjoy the show.

The Ilikai hotel has a couple of great restaurants of varied budget classes, spa/massage rooms, swimming pool and very easy access to the beach. The tour desk can organise all your tours and car rentals, we managed to get our Mustang much cheaper( by about $60) than booking ourselves.

For do-it-yourself touring , the PINK line bus stops right out front of the hotel at the flags and each ride only costs $2. There are other bus routes that also stop at the Ilikai. All booked tours will stop here first and you get dropped off first after your tour.

Walking through Waikiki is easy and flat so suitable for strollers and wheelchairs, OR, you can walk along the beach and the board-walks to get to any of the other hotels/restaurants. There are quite a few very reasonably priced restaurants in the area and our favourite was the Cheeseburger in Waikiki for fantastic burgers and boutique beer. Most of the beach side restaurants will need bookings if you don't want to wait in a huge line, but Phi and Shinomi leave you a little mobile phone to do this with.

All in all Phi and Shinomi have provided a great little condo in a very convenient location and have tried to think of all the things you might need to make your stay memorable. We have absolutely no problem recommending this condo to our family and friends and if we every come back to Waikiki will definitely stay here again. Thanks Phi and Shinomi

Fabulous condo and location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying 10 days in this fabulous condo. The pictures/description are accurate...yes, that is the actual view from the deck! We loved the location. Besides that view, it is super close to so many great restaurants, stores, large shopping mall (Ala Moana Mall), car rentals, and the lagoon which was perfect for our 2 young daughters to swim/play in without having to worry about waves/under currents. The unit is stocked with the basics plus 4 beach towels, 2 chairs, floaties, and a cooler which we hauled to the beach each day. We rented a car about every other day just to change up the scenery and explore. If you rent a car, book it through the girls at the desk downstairs to get a better deal. On line it was over $100 but through them it was only $58 and if you are willing to go to a 2 hour time share presentation (we never did this but in hindsight we should have) then you get it for only $40/day plus half price deals on numerous activities. The condo was a good size for 2 adults and 2 young kids. Our daughters (ages 7 and 9) slept on the futon couch but it definitely wouldn't be big enough for older kids as they just fit. I wish they instead had a regular queen size hide-a-bed couch to accommodate teens/adults. The king bed is extremely comfortable. Overall the condo is very clean and comfortable! We liked how it was keyless entry so we didn't have to worry about losing keys. It's also very close to the elevators, laundry, and garbage room but you don't hear any people in the's super quiet! We also loved the huge deck and view. We hope to return to Hawaii again in the near future and will definitely book this unit again if it's available!
