We had a wonderful week staying in 1512. The location is perfect to keep quite if you want or walk down the beach to the action. The unit is well appointed with everything you need even beach accessories. The view from the Lanai is fabulous, we spotted a whale one morning. We have stayed at Ilikai before on the other side and this unit by far is better. Communicating with Eleanor is easy and she responds quickly. A wonderful experience, thank you Eleanor!!

Everything about this unit was perfect! It was my husband, myself, our 16 year old daughter, and our 4 year old son staying. The unit was idea for all ages. I based our choice of lodging based off of personal reviews so here is my detailed review to help you make your decision!
The kitchen was fully stocked - not a single item we wished was there. We ate most all of our meals in the unit for 8 days with no problems (and there is a WalMart just over a mile away for inexpensive grocery shopping or a Foodland, which was reasonably priced).
The lanai was amazing! It is the full length of the unit, which most other condo complexes don't have. That was a big selling point for us to stay here. We all four ate outside for each meal with plenty of room to enjoy the breathtaking views. We actually never utilized the bar stools inside because the lanai was perfect since it had two smaller tables, four chairs, and a lounge chair. I even stored our stroller out there while not in use and it was never in the way because there is so much room out there.
Let's get to the best part of the lanai. The huge deck box out there is packed full of practical beach items. Not just your standard sand toys to occupy a younger child. In addition to those (which were conveniently in a beach bag to take to the beach easily), there were boogie boards, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, blow up pool toys, insulated coolers, sand mats, etc. We did not have to buy a single thing for outdoor entertainment since it was all there. HUGE PLUS for us! The view from the lanai is great. You can see the rooftop Hilton Hawaiian Village luau from the lanai - that saves a lot of money being able to watch it. There are also fireworks near the lagoon that can be watched from the lanai on the weekends. Great front row seats!
The sliding doors between the bedroom and living room were nice to have some privacy while sleeping yet be able to open it up for more space during the day. The bed was comfortable and the air mattress in the room isn't just a little flimsy thing, it is a queen mattress that is very thick and cozy. There are plenty of extra sheets and blankets to create an ideal sleeping space on the mattress.
There were many little touches throughout the unit that were very nice such as a stool under the bathroom sink for little ones to use or Aloha condos leaving behind a large beach bag to tote necessities to and from. There were plenty of towels to use and cleaning supplies were provided if you chose to tidy up throughout your stay.
The pool was nice and easy to get to. There is a little store in the lobby as needed and an ABC store across the street along with restaurants and other shops. The building is on the quieter end of Waikiki so you are walking distance into the busier part yet can retreat back to the quieter end very easily. The lagoon was great and is available for public use. Ideal for younger kids since there are no waves. But if you want the actual ocean, it is right there as well. There is also a boardwalk for easy access to stroll the beach or a nice morning run.
The unit location is ideal as well. It is right off the elevator and close to laundry. But there is no noise or noticeable foot traffic from either. You don't have a keycard for the room, just a code to lock the door. It was so nice not having to worry about taking a key card to the beach or the pool!
As others have mentioned, parking can get pricy, but no different than it would be in any other metropolitan city. Any hotel/condo in Waikiki area charges parking and is in the same price range as the Ilikai building. It is up to $28 a day for the valet but considering we used our car to go explore on a daily basis, the convenience of this was very nice. They are prompt and professional. Plus, they bring you your car with the AC on so you are never getting into a super hot car. The secure location of the valet parking lot was nice as well since we had 6 hours after check out until we needed to leave for the airport and I had no worries loading up the car and giving it back to valet while we wandered town until it was time to leave again. You can look for free or cheaper parking nearby but we didn't think it was worth it for the added time and effort, especially realizing how convenient it was to load and unload right in front and continue on our way.
I will certainly choose this exact unit again next time I am in Waikiki without even looking elsewhere. I do not have a single complaint. The owner was great to work with and is excellent with communication. I felt like I was in a home away from home. It was ideal!
Location of the Ilikai and the actual condo location, close to elevator and laundry facilities, all

The quiet surroundings, the view from the lanai are what I look forward to that is why I have rented this condo for the past 5 years. The location close to all the services and shopping areas I enjoy and use on a regular basis certainly work well for me.Highly recommend the site.
We want to thank you for taking the time to post your review. We also want to say a big “mahalo” for coming back now for 5 years! The location of this complex is perfect! It is convenient to everything you would need such as restaurants, shopping and beaches. The Marina and ocean views are exceptional and do bring a sense of calm to any day!
We look forward to continuing to serve you in the future. We appreciate your business!
Aloha and Mahalo
