We could not be happier with this condo! The kitchen is all updated with a granite counter top and all the stainless items. The bed and the sofa bed are very comfortable to sleep. One of the things we appreciate is that there are tons of drawers for each person to put their own personal things. The view is breathtaking all through the day. We even had a chance to see a double rainbow!! The owner/contact person always responded to my inquiry promptly. We rented a car for 6 days. The parking fee is $20 a day for condo resident. But the location is great, you can actually walk to anywhere from the condo. We highly recommend this condo to anyone who are looking for a condo. Actually we will definitely come back here soon.

Great place to stay not my first choice at first but I am REALLY glad I found this Condo. Your staff was AWESOME had an issue with the TV on a sunday and by the time we returned we had a new tv on a SUDAY that's awesome.. Elevator issues but not your fault they were being updated. Parking they gave us the monthly rate but we had to really push for it. they told us its not for renters but only for people who live there.. Over all great place love that there was a printer for me to use but somebody took the software for PC but I was still able to download it from the internet. Lots of hangers very nice. very clean Thank You cant wait till next year Wayne Yoshida

180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean, breathtaking views everywhere. Five minute walk to the largest mall in Oahu, the Ala Moana Shopping Ctr. Clean updated condo, has everything you need. Although I would recommend a modern blender for smoothies.The fridge is very nice, had filtered water and ice machine built in. This was a great bonus as it was so hot in Waikiki during our stay. The air conditioner worked great and kept us cool in the condo.I would also recommend that the owner include beach stuff like the other condo had where we stayed the previous days. Recommend,beach chairs, mats and a boogie board, also a cooler would be nice for the beach. Over-all a comfortable stay.

Everything met our expectations. We only had one small issue with the wifi but it was dealt with quickly. The koa decor is gorgeous and about as Hawaiian as one can expect! The location is what originally drew us to this property and continues to not disappoint. We especially liked the snack basket! What a nice touch! This will definitely be the first unit we try and secure the next time our travels take us to O'ahu.

We really enjoyed our two nights at Ilikai Marina 1294. The view from the unit is great- I even saw a whale breaching! I appreciated all the little details the owners/managers have thought to include like welcome snacks and body wash, shampoo, and conditioner in the bathroom (and not the no name brands you normally get staying in a hotel). We liked staying on the edge of town, away from the noise and hustle and bustle of Waikiki but we also liked that it was close by enough to walk in at night for dinner. For some reason I thought the property had a pool and it looks like the building we were in used to be able to use the pool at the hotel next door, but not any more. It wasn't a big deal though as the ocean water was as warm as a pool anyway!

This lovely condo had all the amenities we would want while visiting Honolulu. It was convenient to beaches, shopping, dining out: all within reasonable walking distance. A lovely touch was the welcoming basket. The condo was clean, neat, comfortable, and quiet. One minor complaint was the amount of dust in the living room area. When we inspected the source, we found the problem originating from the "fresh air upright fans" on either side of the TV. The grills or slats were thick with dust, front and back. It appears they are not vacuumed or dusted, thus they blow dust out. We would be happy to stay here again!

We had a great time in your condo it Ilikai Marina. The location was great and easy to walk to almost everything we wanted to see. Only things that I would have added to help with the condo's amenities would have been some chairs for the lanai as well as maybe a couple of sand chairs, floaties, boogie boards or something like that that retnters could use. I bought an air matress while we were there and left it in the condo for future renters.
Mahalo for submitting a review and weâre glad you enjoyed our condoâs convenient location. We have many guests that prefer extra storage space and unfortunately storing boogie boards and other beach items takes up that valuable space

Renting this condo was easy and the staff who run aloha Condo's are very professional you don't have to worry about anything. You even get an email from the owners asking you to call them if there are any questions or problems. I did a huge amount of research before booking this condo. My mind was set at ease when I spoke to Chuck. The condo is as pictured and they do a very nice job of keeping it clean. The bed is really comfortable and you sleep very soundly. The noise from the harbor is almost nonexistent. The view from the 12th floor is very beautiful to wake up to. I wish they would clean up the harbor it was a bit trashy. Ladies there is more than enough closet and drawer space for all of your items. We were 3 women in the condo and still did not use all of the drawers. The Jacuzzi tub is nice to relax in. But be careful since it is deeper than a normal tub and requires some getting used to, to get yourself up and out, not much to hang onto. WiFi is easy to access. There are some extra's in the cabinet above the vanity we discovered a few days into our stay, like sunscreen, nail polish remover and hairspray. We were left a very nice "Welcome" basket to get our vacation started. Everything worked well and you have everything you need for a complete relaxing vacation. If you choose to stay here #1294 you wont be sorry. This condo is solid and so are the people you will have contact with.

My husband, daughter and I enjoyed our ten day stay in Condo 1294. This corner condo was quiet with a great ocean view. The view from our lanai also allowed us to watch the boats in the marina, the surfers beyond the marina, as well as the nearby beach. We had the perfect seat to watch the fireworks from the Hilton on Friday nights. There was plenty of room for all our clothes (no living out of a suitcase).

This condo was more than we expected. It was spotless and finely appointed. The bed was very comfortable. We didn't prepare food there because there are ample restaurants within walkong distance but the kitchen was well stocked. The lagoon and Waikiki beach are a very easy walk away. But it is just far enough away that you don't get bothered by the throngs of people on the beach. The best part of our stay was the view. Between the bedroom window and the very large slider leading to the balcony, you get an amazing view of not only the marina, but of the coastline as well. We will never bother with the Waikiki resorts again. Ilikai Marina is the better option.

We rented a one bedroom unit for my husband, myself and 2 children and it was comfortable enough. The children had to sleep on a pull out couch and they did not complain about it at all. The room was clean except for inside some of the dresser drawers there were tags from the previous renters in the drawers so we did not unpack our clothing which was a pain! The carpet needed to be vacuumed as well, but other than that we were happy with the room. Not much of an entrance into the building which other condo's have and the halls had odors.

My husband and I stayed here for 7 days for our honeymoon. It was absolutly wonderful. The room is equipped with everything you could need. The view at sunset is breath taking. I have a picture of every sunset from the patio. The patiois the only downside to this lovely room. Its very small. My husband and I sat cross legged with no room to spare. But still beautiful none the less. The bed is very comfortable & has a flat screen tv although the big window looking out at the sea was all we needed. I loved the bathtub it had jets which were wonderful after a full day of activities. The location is awesome. Close to everything. If you opt out of renting a car the bus lines are very close. We didn't miss not having a car. We had the pleasure of meeting Natalie who takes care of the place. She was so extremely nice and welcoming. Gave us tons of info on best happy hours and places to eat. She was even able to be contacted for simple questions which is nice if your unfamiliar of the area. There are numerous bars and resturants all within walking distance. Chart House located in the same building is amazing for drinks and steak. The room is very quiet, clean and roomy. The welcome basket of goodies was the perfect touch. I would highly recommend this place to everyone looking for a wonderful condo to stay.

A beautiful view, a welcome basket of local edibles and a location in Waikiki that made walking to the zoo or ala Moana Center a breeze. Towels were big and thick. Kitchen was remodeled and cabinets looked like Koa wood. Beautiful! In order to hit the excellent star, more practical amenities would have been nice. There was no overhead lighting in the hallway and the vanity lighting wasn't adequate. In the bathroom, as an alternative to a canvas hamper and extra towel racks, they might consider more counter space/toiletry storage and add decorative hooks for hanging towels instead. Long term, is the pocket door really necessary? Making that a wall would add considerable space to the bathroom for storage needs. Likewise, even though the kitchen looked stellar, it wasn't very functional as it had very limited counter space. With no dishwasher, and after washing dishes, there was even less counter space. The floating island seemed disjointed. Service was first rate however, as they were willing and able to accomodate our early arrival of luggage. We left our packed luggage in the closets and enjoyed our day! We would most certainly return here and recommend this unit to friends!

We found the location of the condo to be amazing...close to absolutely everything; restaurants of all kinds from McDonalds and Red Lobster to Kobe's. An easy walk to anything you could possibly need, like shopping or groceries, or a very affordable cab ride elsewhere. The condo itself was great too, with a big comfortable bed and fully stocked kitchen. Amazing views of the marina and ocean, very quiet(even with the lanai doors open you can barely hear the traffic), and private.

Ah, what a great condo! Wonderful view out over the Marina, just a short stroll to Hilton Hawaiian Village and beyond that the whole crazy strip, easy parking, quiet. My wife and I stayed here 4 nights and agreed it was the best place we've stayed in 4-5 trips to Oahu so far. The furnishings and decor are good quality and island-appropriate, with nice koa wood cabinetry in the kitchen. The kitchen was well-stocked with appliances and dishes, the bed was comfortable and king-sized, the bathroom was plenty adequate, etc. The building is an easy 10-minute walk to the Hawaii Convention Center, where I was attending a meeting. The only improvement I'd make is to put a more room-darkening shade over the bedroom window; the marina lights and the full moon made the room pretty bright and I found it hard to stay asleep until I tried an eye mask. Otherwise, no complaints!

This condo is very convenient to the convention center and ala Moana Shopping Center and a comfortable walk to Waikiki along the beachfront. We could not find any good restaurants in the area, however, just chains or over-priced beachfront dives. The condos furnishings are OK in the bedroom, however, the living room sofa is broken-down and uncomfortable to sit on for TV watching. There are very limited kitchen utensils. Probably the biggest negative is lack of adequate lighting in the entire condo. We could not read in bed because the lighting is so poor. We had to turn on every light in the kitchen, living room, and dining room to have more than a dim view in the condo at night. Finally, we have never stayed in a condo where the owner did not provide a single bar of soap. The first morning, I had to walk to the aBC on the corner to buy a bar of soap for our morning showers! We were generally disappointed in this condo.
Deb, it sounds like you werenât very happy and weâre sorry you couldnât find a good restaurant in the Waikiki area.

My mother rented this condo for us for our honeymoon and as we had never stayed in a condo before or even been to Hawaii we didn't know what to expect. When we walked in the room it was late at night and the room looked wonderful when we opened the door and the welcome basket was very unexpected but a lovely touch. I have to say the room is very tastefully decorated and has every amenity you could ever want including a jetted tub which my wife made immediate use of. The furniture is of the highest quality and the bed was extremely confortable. When we opened the curtains the next morning the view took our breath away and just added the cherry on top of the cake. It was a treat to sit and watch the boats come and go in the marina and to watch the numerous dragon boats come and go as they practiced out in the ocean. We were thrilled with this condo and would definitely rent it again and recommend it to everyone we meet. It made our honeymoon complete and thank you Chuck for letting us enjoy it.

Loved the location of condo. Upgrades in condo were nice. Bad things: airconditioner works so poorly as to make condo almost unbearable in the evening hours, especially since the roll up blind for the sliding glass doors is totally broken- the blind has torn off from the roller part of the blind. The sun heats up the apt alot and makes evening sleep rather difficult.
I apologize for the blinds and they have been repaired. As I mentioned to you in our last correspondence, the windows have a âlock-outâ system to prevent the AC from cooling if not tightly closed. At any rate we are having the AC checked to be sure it is functioning properly. We provide all of our guests with a local contact phone number to call for assistance during their visit. Glad you liked the location and upgrades and I hope you will return.

6 stars! Over the years I have stayed in most of the hotels and lots of condos in Waikiki and Chuck provides the best. I arrived a day early and Natalie buffed the room out on her Sunday afternoon for me. This property is a 5 minute walk from major shopping and the heart of Waikiki beach and night life but out of the traffic and noise. The photos on the website seem too good to be true but believe it! Price compare it to hotels with "mountain view" and this is ocean front. You can't get any closer. Full kitchen, great towels, full a/V in bedroom and common area with free hot spot and very nicely furnished. Lots of extras in the closet for kids and adults at the beach. Parking isn't cheap ($17/day) but there were always spaces and it is half of the going rate at hotels. $8 airport shuttle from the Ilikai concierge. If I owned this condo, I wouldn't change a thing. I will ask for 1294 every time I come to Oahu. Mahalo

We had a wonderful 8 day stay at the Illikai marina. The location was perfect for a family with young children. The condo was clean and very nicely decorated. We stay in alot of vacation condos and location alone will keep us coming back to the illikai marina. Unfortunately there are some caveats. 1. Even though we asked the aloha condos staff about the deck railings looking like they ended awfully far from the building, they assured us the spacing was no more then the railing spacing.. that was incorrect. *IF* you had the condo slider open all the way blocking off 2 inches, that was true. If you closed the slider part way then the spacing was 8 inches! Not only that, but there is a small ledge, so I would never recommend leaving the slider open with children under 8-10. I cant comprehend how it could have ever met building codes. Now, saying that, we would still stay there again because we love the location and the a/c works great. :) But we would have brought a travel gate so that we could feel safe opening the sliding door. 2. The kitchen didnt have a stitch of tupperware -none of the perks that you usually find in a rental... sugar, or left over foil that the last folks left bring those from home. 3. Towels!! We (3) were provided with 1 bath towel and 1 beach towel for an 8 day stay. I dont know about you, but I dont use the same towel every day for over a week.. especially when vacationing in a beach location that is very warm. We had to wash the towels, which was a first at any rental we have ever stayed in. The washer and dryers at the illikai ate $5 in quarters. There is no change machine. ABC store will only give 3.00 in quarters with purchase. It was a big pain. Dont use the stacked w/d & bring plenty of quarters. It cost 2.25 each load to wash and an addtl 2.25 to dry. The washer only fit 6 of the large towels and a few hand towels. Again, we would stay there again and feel it was a value, but wish we would have known the above.

It also was 10min walk to Ala Mona shopping centre which had fantastic stores. There was cheap parking for $6US for 12hrs which is great if you had a car for a few days. We parked at the condo's which was $17US per day and worked out better for us as we didn't have to keep moving the car after 12hrs. The only downside is that there was construction work happening at the Ilikai Hotel across the road so could be a bit noisy in the day, however if your in Hawaii you wouldn't really be staying in your room! Would definately stay here again and recommend it to family and friends.

My family and I stayed in unit 1294 for 9 days on a recent trip to O'ahu. The condo was perfect for us! My husband was attending a conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village just two hotels down from us- less than a 10 minute walk. From the Ilikai Marina I could walk with our 14 month old to the beach, to the lagoon, to the Ala Moana Mall (where there's also a full grocery store), or take a longer walk down into the "heart" of Waikiki. It was also a convenient starting point for driving to other parts of the island, like the North Shore and to Hanauma Bay. The condo itself had everything we needed and we loved having a full kitchen. The view from the condo is fantastic and on our last morning we were treated to a gorgeous full rainbow just outside. The bed was comfy, the air conditioning worked great, it was easy to park and easy to make all the arrangements with Chuck, the property manager. We rented baby equipment like a high chair and pack-n-play from a local company called www.babytravelmadeeasy.com. They provided a great service. The only drawback to the condo is there is no dishwasher. Since we did a lot of cooking ourselves, this was one convenience that would have been nice to have. Also one of the standing lamps in the living room had a burnt out bulb and the toilet tank seemed to have a leak so the water would run more than it needed to. We used the washer and dryer in the building twice during our stay and that was really nice to have nearby. We would definitely stay here again!

It was a great central location to all the places we wanted to see. We had a blast. The only thing I could not figure out was how to turn on the showerhead, but the jacuzzi made up for that. After a long day of sightseeing, the warm jets of water soothed my sore muscles and helped me relax on my vacation.

This place was fantastic!! Everything we expected and more. Very Clean. Great View. Convenient to all. Chuck @ Aloha rentals was also great to deal with. He had great follow up on everything from start to finish. This unit made our vacation to Oahu even more enjoyable and having breakfast every morning overlooking such a wonderful view, made it very difficult to leave.

We needed a place close to a relative's apartment with easy access and near-by parking. The location was exactly what we were looking for and parking couldn't have been easier. We could walk out the door of the apartment, take the elevator, and be in the parking garage in less than five minutes. The view of the marina was delightful. The apartment was well furnished, the bed was comfortable, and the kitchen seemed stocked with all the plates, cups, glasses, and flatware anyone would need. It met our needs exactly.

My wife and I have been coming to Oahu for every 40 years. We usually stay in hotels or with friends. For many years our parents rented condos at the Ilikai Marina. We looked for a gem and we found it. Great view, beautifully appointed accomodation exactly as depicted in the internet video, and the location inspires exploring Ala Moana and the Waikiki area on foot. We are definitely returning to this unit!
Wonderful condo in Honolulu

My family experienced the magic of Hawai'i at Christmas and New Year's from this waterfront condo in Honolulu. The condo was in exceptional condition, and the service was first rate. All of our questions were answered with speed and curtesy, and basic needs were anticipated without our asking! From the great views, to the great accomodations, we could not have asked for a more perfect vacation. Mahalo to Aloha Condos!

Pros: - Absolute Ocean Front (not just 'ocean view') - Convenient Location - Updated Interior Cons: - Would be really nice to have a kettle. - No full-length mirror. - No shampoo/Linse/body wash (some condos supply these amenities) - There was no welcome gifts/snacks (that was in the condo the last time we rented). - Dish-washing sponge was too dirty and old to be useful ( I would use that sponge to do my dishes at home) - There was only a little bath cleaner. - There was no medium-size towel that was there the last time. - No dish washer. - Could have used another set of bed sheets.

Condo was not cleaned from previous occupant and had to call for service. Also, garage charged for 4, 24hr. periods when we checked in after 11am on the 1st and had to be out by 11am on the 4th. The sign posted at the gate clearly states per 24hr period. Would also have liked a lanai large enough to enjoy sitting on and a pool! Location was great and condo itself was otherwise comfortable, MUCH better than unit 394 which rents for same rate. Also liked the convenient check-in procedures.

It is a wonderful place to stay. Just 5 minutes of walk you can get to beach. This room is oceanfront and it has a beautiful view of the ocean with lots of boats. Fireworks occasionally can be seen at night from the small balcony and they are spectacular. The hotel is quiet and you can have good sleep. The kitchen has a good set of cooking utensils and you can save money cooking yourself. We have a very good time with our then-4-year-old son there. Would like to go back there sometime soon :)

The condo is very tastefully decorated and the view is spectacular. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset from our lanai overlooking the ocean. The Ilikai is located within walking distance of Waikiki Beach to the south and Ala Moana shopping mall to the north. Next year will be our 3rd year returning to this beautiful location - the condo has such a warm homey feeling, just perfect for the two of us!

The condo was better than advertised. Great accommodation, close to the water and a view to forever. Appliances were just like home and easy to use. The little extras were great for beach use and even a printer for the laptop. I would do it again.
