From our unit, simply come down the elevator to our lobby, walk across our patio and just a few steps away is the start of the Famous Waikiki Beach.

In the evening, grab yourself a glass of wine and sit on our lanai, enjoy the wonderful City & mountain views of Honolulu and Waikiki.

Since 95% of the time, our unit is rented by only two people (couples), we have removed the wall between the living room and bedroom to give the unit an open feeling but there is still a movable curtain divider if you need some privacy.

About Gary Fijay

I love travelling. I like to experience different cultures, friendly people and enjoy warmer weather. And that is why I bought this beautiful condo in Waikiki. People call Waikiki, Paradise and I feel that is true. This world is a beautiful place and I would like to see some of it in our life time.

Gary Fijay purchased this condo in 2007

Why Gary Fijay chose Oahu

This beautiful condo in Waikiki is located in the Ilikai Hotel & Suites. The Ilikai Hotel and Suites is a famous landmark and was made famous by the TV Hit Series, Hawii Five-0.

I have been travelling to Hawaii for many years and finally took the plunge to buy a slice of the Paradise. I wanted a condo that was close to the beach and in a wonderful location. Buying in the Ilikai Hotel & Suites gave me both. So now I use this condo every year and also get a chance to share it with our rental clientele.

What makes this condo unique

One of the best things we love about our unit is that you do NOT have to walk for blocks or cross any streets to get to the Famous Wakiki Beach. From this unit, simply go to the lobby, walk across our patio and the beach is right there. Waikiki Beach starts from where the Ilikai Towers is located.

Also the largest mall on the Island is located just a short walk from the unit. You can spent days shopping at this mall. Another great feature is the Bus stop which stops in front of the Ilikai. We love sitting on the Lanai in the evenings and watching the lights of Honolulu and Waikiki. Many shops, Market, 2 restaurants, bell boys, Concierge, Advantage Rental Car are all on site.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Maureen,

It was truly wonderful trip to Hawaii and I found the location of your condo very very convenient. 5min to beaches and free parking lots, 10min to Ala Moana shopping center, ABC store right in front, and shuttle buses stop frequently etc... I will definately recommend my friends to stay in your condo and surely I plan to go back to Hawaii.

I had to use the service elevator to take my surfboard ups and downs but it did not bother me at all. If concierge could hold my board that would have been excellent but they did not accept..

I am very satisfied with your condo and thank you for the discount offer for the next time.

Please keep in touch

best regards

perfect condo for two young women, great place

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to all the information the owner gave us we found the hotel and also our condo really quickly. Also with the given code everything worked with the first try. Cute little appartmend with everything you need. Perfect location close to all the bus stops and to the sea. Kitchen was good size, bathroom perfect, bed very comfortable and big and the 'living room' very cozy. First we were little disappointed because the balcony was not facing the sea. But just on the first day we found out that it was perfect because in the early morning, for breakfast, you had sun and later on, for lunch or dinner there was shade which was amazing because it was hot anyways!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much to these two wonderful ladies from Switzerland. I am very happy to hear that all the information I provided helped out a lot. You were able to find the hotel easily and check in was a breeze. Yes, the location is perfect, it is something that everybody comments on. The bus stops right in front and the Ocean is only steps away. I am also very happy to hear that they found the bed very comfortable. You are right, this apartment does not get super hot as other apartments because it is on the cooler side of the building. Hopefully, next time your dad will be able to make it to Hawaii because it has been his dream for 30 years to come to Oahu. I want to thank you for this wonderful review.

Wonderful and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Rick and I had a wonderful stay and highly recommend Gary's unit. The Ilikai has a prime location to beach, restaurants and touring the city. The unit itself is comfortable with an amazing bed to assure a good nights rest. The kitchen is well stocked to prepare any meal. We had several choices of restaurants within a short walking distance to choose from as well. Cinnamons, which is right downstairs, offers a great deal for any meal of the day. There is a convenience store within the hotel as well as other shops to browse or pick up souvenirs. There's also live entertainment Friday and Saturday nights in the beautiful courtyard. You also get a great view of the Friday night fireworks! Did I mention the large lanai with the view of the city and mountain? Awesome!

Gary was wonderful to work with and answered all my emails quickly. We can't thank you enough for your kindness! No regrets on finding this bargain property!

Everything was great!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Gary's condo during our time in Waikiki. The condo was just as described and had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing week. We especially liked the location, which was close to everything! We were able to walk or take public transportation everywhere we needed to go. The owner was fantastic, answered all of our questions promptly, and even worked closely to make sure we got an item of ours returned which was inadvertently left behind. Wonderful experience and we would rent this condo again if we're lucky enough to return to the area!

Owner's Response: I would like to thank Kellie and Mark for this great review. I am very happy to know that you found the condo to be accurately described on the website. I do agree the location of this condo is wonderful. Everything is close by and in walking distance. Yes, we do try very hard to help our guests and reply to emails as quickly as possible and in a timely manner. I was happy to help you arrange a time with Mark, our property manager, Violet and the current guests to retrieve the item that was left behind in the condo. Thanks again for a great review and look forward to having you back one day soon....

One might say a picture is worth a thousand words. Not true with this room If only pictures could give you smells and if they showed the whole truth.

The couch must be original from when the condo was built. It stunk it sunk couldn't even sit on it because of the smell. Also wore out I couldn't image sleeping on it.

This room is so out dated I do not believe it has ever been painted or deep cleaned. The vents and around wall plates are full of dust I mean corroded. The shower head is so scaled up I mean how much does it take to replace a shower head???? It's just disgusting. As for the towels my god I wouldn't use them to wash my car in fear of scratching it. Ya don't have to worry about anyone stealing them they are as old as dirt.

Also the bed was terrible lumpy. The mattress pad was a old blanket with holes in it this was observed by my wife.

I saw other rooms on that floor while they were being cleaned and they looked updated and very nice from a quick glance.

I am surprised that this room can be rented out and that VRBO will advertise it.

This was my first & last experience with VRBO.

Sorry but I am a very easy guy to please and usually do not have too much bad to say. But honestly this room is bad. My wife contacted the front desk about this also and showed them photos. She was more pissed than I and I had to calm her down and assure her that I would say something because she knows how easy going I am. (She is still mad that I didn't contact the owner/property manager)

I travel a lot I stayed 160 days last year in motels. I had never stayed in one so out dated like this.

This room just needs to be updated & deep cleaned and painted

I know this review will not be listed because it is so bad but this is the truth and should be listed before someone else has to deal with this.

As for location that is good plenty of shops & restaurants near by

Plenty of activities all depends on what you want to do.

Owner's Response: Wow, I am shocked and surprised at this review. When I first read it, I could not believe that these guests wrote this review. We have many other wonderful reviews online and a lot of happy guests who come every year. The previous guests who stayed in May were very happy and they wrote a nice review and they were returning guests who are also booking another stay next year. We also have guests who stayed last Dec/Jan/Feb/Mar and now they have already booked 4 months for next year. We believe in providing a nice, clean condo at an affordable prices.. And this is why our condo is always booked. The King size bed is about 6 years old and the sofa bed is about 12 years old. Usually sofa bed is not used because most of our guests are couples. The photos are the actual photos of the condo. Here is a little background on these guests who wrote this negative review. These guests who wrote this review booked the condo directly from the website. They did not email me with any queries or questions. They did not contact me at all. I would have thought that anybody who is very particular about a condo and wants the latest features with Granite countertops, etc would have emailed me to ask some questions before they booked it but they did not email me at all. This was very surprising because most guests email me with questions. From their review, it seems like these guests were very particular about the type of condo they wanted so they should have asked the owners to verify what they were expecting. These guests may have rented our condo because it is very affordable. If you expect 5 star accommodations than you will be paying $350- $400 per night.. Hawaii is expensive. Our guests do not want to pay $350 - $400 a night for accommodation. These guests would have been much happier at the upscale Hawaiian Hilton Village next door and they also would have paid double the price they paid us. I also travel 6 months of the year. I have never been disappointed with my accommodation because I ask questions to confirm that the accommodation is comparable to the price I am paying. Please do not make a judgement on our condo based on this one review, read the other reviews that are submitted online so you have a true picture. We do not claim to have 5 Star Accommodation but our condo is clean, tidy and affordable and what most of our guests are looking for. I hope you will look past this review and read the others also. thank you.

Long Over Due Review for 3 Perfect Stays

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in Gary's condo. Every time we have come to stay, everything is in pristine condition. Absolutely everything is as described, the location is the absolute best, 10 minutes from front door to beach, if you wait on the elevator! And 15 minutes to the Ala Moana mall or Magic Island. And only 15 minutes to the Duke's statue in the heart of Waikiki.

Every kitchen appliance you could need is right there waiting for you! Both a Keurig and a drip brew coffee maker. And two electric skillets in case you need to make more than 6 grilled cheese sandwiches at once. Booking was a breeze and Gary responds quickly and with accurate information. Booking and finding flights is the hardest part about deciding when to come back to Hawaii. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is included, never bring a book, unless it's to add to the growing library of books left by each renter for others to enjoy! Just bring your beach towel and you'll be ready for the beach. So come ready for days of relaxation on the beach, and perfect morning coffees on the lanai.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much, Jaclyn for this wonderful review. I am glad you enjoyed your trip. I am also very happy the condo was perfect and you had everything you needed. Yes, everything is very close to our condo, including the beach and the largest Mall on the Island, the Ala Moana Shopping Centre. Also, I am very happy that we provided you fast and efficient service. I will work on some dates for your next visit in May/2017.

Wonderful Condo, Great location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Gary for the use of you Condo! We had a great time. The Condo & facility were just perfect. Right by the beach & Marina & lagoon. Restraunt downstairs was very enjoyable. Good food for Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was also very handy having a small store downstairs to buy a wide selection of items both for the Kitchen in the Condo (which worked out great) and beach items etc. We utilized the Pool downstairs also and it was always available to us and it was very comfortable.

Bus stop right in front of condo was very handy and we could go everywhere we wanted. Thankyou again for the use of your condo. We had a wonderful time.
