About the property

Condo, 1 Bedrm + Conv. bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4), Full Kitchen, Large Lanai!

We've done it again after VRBO # 213994 ! Welcome to this newly re-modeled 19th floor Your completely newly and stunning remodeled condo greets with a view of Diamond Head, ocean and lovely lagoon. Watch the Friday night fireworks from your oversized lanai. Dine next door at world famous Morimoto Restaurant or go up the glass elevator to Sarento's at the Top of the Ilikai for drinks and fantastic food in the round and catch a magnificent sunset then watch Honolulu twinkle at night with their breathtaking panoramic views. Check your e-mail with your free Wi Fi or watch your free cable or connect to your Netflix account on the large flat screen TV. Enjoy the all Italian leather furniture or European linens. Experience the 40-year-old tradition of Hawaiian torch lighting that happens nightly or the hula show downstairs next to the newly opened Cinnamon's restaurant and bar that serves the best pancakes anywhere!

The Ilikai is a classic oceanfront hotel that stands proudly at the entrance to Waikiki and it's beachwalk overlooking the most famous beach in the Pacific. A private walkway leads directly from the hotel to the redesigned Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon and the most desirable strand of Waikiki Beach. From our lovely and spacious ocean view room on the 19th floor which faces the ocean and the lagoon, we think you will love it here as we offer relaxing accommodations that suit your every need. You can snorkel, surf, hike, kayak, paddle board, scuba, swim, or shop within minutes and all the equipment is available here.

The Ilikai's convenient location allows for easy access from Waikiki to many popular area attractions. You'll find yourself within easy walking distance to Ala Moana Beach Park, Ala Moana Center, Waikiki Beach Walk, and the Hawaii Convention Center. Downtown Honolulu is located only a few minutes away by car. The outlet malls have buses which pick you up here!

Most all our wonderful guests are returning ones and we hope you will come again and again. You will feel like royalty! Theres a reason Elvis stayed at the Ilikai along with presidents and other notables! We keep beach toys and accoutrements for you such as beach chairs, floats, and boogie boards for your pleasure. Nothing beats the salt water pool which is only an elevator ride away with its valet towel service and adjacent pool house where you can relax between dips, sip some delightful tropical beverage, and enjoy a good books. Or relax over coffee on your lanai. It's all great -- especially when you have your own beautiful full sized kitchen with granite counter tops and can do your own thing on your own schedule! Our guests cannot rave enough! So will you!

About Patricia Rust

I, Patricia, am a travel writer so I know what I look for. I tried to bring every aspect of a traveler's comfort to you in terms of joy, ease, and relaxation in this tropical paradise. As a travel professional, I have accumulated a lot of knowledge which I have translated into this condo in terms of beauty, luxury, and serenity. I provided for everything in remodeling that I look for in travel -- the entire unit was gutted and re-outfitted with new everything and the finest in Italian and European luxury items and new appliances throughout. Enjoy!!!

Patricia Rust purchased this condo in 2007

Why Patricia Rust chose Oahu

I bought this 'Dream of Aloha' to live in myself. I must have looked at a kajillion condos and having lived in Hawaii I knew them all! The Ilikai has the others beat hands down! And mine has the perfect view! I asked the hotel desk which was best and they said '28's and that's the one I bought for me! I decorated it with the finest money could buy but circumstances didn't allow me to live there yet so I am using it as a vacation rental so that other people can enjoy it in the meanwhile. I keep the rate competitive and I like making new friends from all over the world!

What makes this condo unique

Convenient to everything, this location can't be beat! Shopping, swimming, surfing -- everything is at your fingertips! It doesn't get any better than this! There is a reason everyone from Elvis to our Presidents have stayed here. And it is gorgeous, well run, and the new relaxation pool can't be beat! It's a one of a kind!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was absolutely gorgeous. Perfect location to enjoy waikiki, great view of the fireworks from the lanai, beautiful interior, and also very well-equipped to suit anyone's needs. However, the best thing about this condo is Patricia. Although she was out of town, she made sure that my husband and I enjoy the best of Hawaii. If I go back, I will definitely stay at her condo again! :) FIVE STARS!

NEW RE-MODEL! Ocean/Lagoon/Diamond Head Views 19th Floor!!!

The condo has been updated and is beautiful and very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at Patricia's condo while my husband worked near the airport. It was a perfect location for us and we were very comfortable there. I love how clean it was and the decor was very fresh and updated. The view of the lagoon and that portion of the beach are great - and the fireworks! This end of the beach is nice too. We walked all the way down toward Diamond Head and this end felt less busy but there is still a lot of fun stuff to do. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is it would be nice to have a little cooking oil and salt and pepper in the condo - just the bare minimum would help for basic cooking. The market right in the building is very convenient and the Food Pantry has tons of take out and pre-made items that don't require any prep. There are 2 car rental places right across the street and Patricia kindly left us a bottle of wine and coffee! I would stay there again.

Our host was so accommodating and nothing was too big an ask, especially after a long flight from NZ. The condo was perfect and well equipped for the two of us and in a great location, close to the mall, nice restaurants and beach. Would definitely stay here again on our return

Beautiful room with a view

  • 5 of 5

The room is in the Ilikai hotel which is located a 6 min walk to ala moana mall, and a 20 min walk to the "strip" on Waikiki. Very near many stores and restaurants. The room is totally renovated with a beautiful and stocked kitchen and bathroom. Many towels and all supplies. The bed is a very comfortable king size, the TV gets hundreds of channels and the wifi is good. The room has a view of the beach and diamond head . It was perfect for 2 people. The beach is a 5 min walk. There is a pool, but we did not use it. The aircon on works very well. The owner was excellent at getting back to us for all questions. We would stay there again.

Very nice unit!

  • 5 of 5

The Ilikai is in a great location. 6 min walk to ala moana mall, and 20 min walk to " the strip" of Waikiki.

Plenty of stores and places to eat within a short walking distance. The hotel is a 5 min walk to the beach., and the hotel has a nice area near the lobby to sit outside at tables to socialize .

The room has a lovely view of the ocean, and diamond head. The room has been renovated very well. The kitchen is beautiful and has everything you would need. The bed is a king size, and is very comfortable. The TV gets lots of channels and the wifi works well.

The unit was very clean.

The bathroom is also new , and the shower is very nice.

We would defiantly stay there again.

Perfect in Every Way

I am one of those perfectionist people who drives everyone nuts. I was there in 1928 this September and couldn’t find a thing wrong — everything was perfect. I have to admit — the setting — the sun — I even heard waves breaking at night. Not every night but some nights. And watched the sun rise with my coffee in the morning on the lanai. The fireworks show from the lanai was awesome. The interior: architecture, art, furniture, design — was flawless. I’ll be back —

We remodeled another condo here # 560792 and it was so successful that we decided to do this one, too. It is a few floors below in the same stack and we did this in a different color scheme of aquas for the ocean and greys to relax and soothe. Everything you can need or want is provided and we aim for the personal touch with a full kitchen, hair drier, and your detergent and fabric softener. lol Morimoto, a top restaurant on the island vies with Sarentos for that honor maybe with one or two others but they are both right here! You can club there or watch the fireworks from the best view in town -- 1928 which faces them directly! Wow!!!

Kayaking and paddleboats are available in the newly done Duke Kahanamoku lagoon outside with its private beach right next to the ocean's beach where you can surf, snorkel, and ride outrigger canoes! There is also a Catamaran and you can decide what to do from your condo -- do your own surf report -- do all the sports -- you'll never want to leave. Everything is just a short walk from your condo! The shuttle takes you to the outlet mall and across the street is world famous Ala Moana Shopping Center. The property is located at the beginning of the Waikiki beach walk which takes you to Diamond Head along the beach on one side and along world class shops on the other. The grounds are lovely and the glass elevator takes you to the top of the Ilikai for great dining or drinks and entertainment. Choose surfing, snorkeling, swimming, boating, paddle-boating, sunning, all right outside your door in the pool, lagoon, or ocean -- all the facilities and equipment are there and available to and for you!!!! Plus, being in such sophisticated surroundings, you may never want to venture out, but if you do, you'll find everything a stone's throw away! And, it's as quiet as a country lake.
