Location, location, location!
The location was great. The apartment was very clean and had everything that we needed. The sofa-bed in the living room was broken at one end which was uncomfortable for my friend when she slept on it. The room was very quiet. Aloha Condos and... more the owner answered our questions immediately. Beautiful place to stay. less

We stayed five nights in #1639 in June 2019. It was Comfortable, clean and cozy for our family of four. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need if you want to do your own cooking. There were plenty of towels in the bath;... more as well as beachtowels and a few outdoor items that we took to the beach, ie: Chair, umbrella, cooler and fins. The lanai looks over the Ilikai courtyard and the Ala Wai boat harbor. It was a fabulous place to enjoy our morning coffee & evening sunsets. The king size bed was very comfortable and the sofa pulled out to a queen size sleeper for our sons. I would definitely recommend this condo to friends wanting to stay in the Waikiki area. It is air-conditioned and cooled off quickly Once turned on. I had very good communication with the owner. less

Perfect Hotel/Condo Hybrid
The Ilikai Hotel and Condos offered a superb stay experience. It combined the amenities of a full service hotel (sans daily cleaning) and the privacy of a personal condo. The location can’t be beat. It was well situated near shopping, a couple of beaches and... more a plethora of dining options. Parking was a little cumbersome, but it was not untenable. I would definitely recommend staying here. less
— Gregory, Stayed 06/19/2019
Great views, clean quarters, nice appointments, everything necessary for another wonderful visit to Oahu! Housekeeping changed over the past year, however, and it wasn't coordinated as well as in years past (when interim cleaning would be?, what date we were "actually" checking out of the... more condo?). less

I want to keep this a secret !!!
We were delighted with this condo and would love to brag about it but it could come back to "bite us" because you will all want to stay here too and there are only so many weeks in the year, LOL. Seriously, a fantastic little... more one bedroom condo with lovely accommodations. It is updated, clean and in a lovely location that you will love. We have stayed in other condos at the Ilikai and this is now our favorite. Kudos to our gracious hostess, Helen. Mahalo, Debbie and Tom OBrien. less
— debra, Stayed 04/02/2019
Fantastic one BR with an amazing view. This condo has everything you would want. The sofa bed was quite comfortable and the condo access was very easy. Kitchen is fully loaded, even though we ate out for the week we were there. Five stars.

Another wonderful stay with Aloha condos
This is the second time I've stayed at the Ilikai with Aloha condos. This time at 1639. It was wonderful. I love the fact there is no check in hassle and no swipe cards for access to units, you just arrive and use your 4... more digit code. Well appointed kitchen and FANTASTIC views. Comfortable bed and good shower. Host was very responsive and quick to sort out my TV issues. The Ilikai has an ABC store, coffee shop, restaurant and large spaces just to sit in the shade. Highly recommend, I will be back. less

Had everything we needed
We recently stayed in this condo for 10 days and were very happy there. We had everything we needed - clean linen, plush towels, utensils, pots and pans, blankets, pillows, laundry, air conditioning, comfortable beds, etc. We enjoyed our coffee each morning sitting out on... more the lanai with a view of boats on the marina, some ocean, and other buildings. We also enjoyed watching the sunset in the evenings. The view depended on which way you looked. Do not expect a perfect ocean view, but there is one. There were beach chairs and other items for our use, which was nice. There was even a box of paperback books and I enjoyed reading one while there! One problem was the time of year we went and it had nothing to do with the condo. It was very hot and humid so afternoons out took all our energy. It was nice to have a condo with air conditioning and a nice shower when we came back. There was a nice restaurant downstairs, shops, ice cream, and a fitness room available. The location was great, close to shopping, restaurants, the beach, and more. They were all within walking distance or a very short drive. The area was active and busy, not exactly laid back, resort-like, but that is Honolulu! It all depends on what you are looking for. We were there to visit family first and vacation second. This place had everything we needed for both. There were a couple small reasons I did not give 5 stars. We saw a note on the counter that pest control was coming during our stay. The instructions let us know which day and gave a time frame. It also stated we did not need to be there, but we also hated to leave all our things in the place knowing a stranger was expected. We did leave, however. When we returned that afternoon, we could not get in. The door had been locked incorrectly and our code did not work. We were able to get help and back in, but it was inconvenient. We really didn't like that someone was coming in while we were there on vacation. Let's be honest, if I had seen bugs, it would be worse, so there's that. Thankfully, they were under control, even at our expense a bit. The other reason there are not 5 stars is because the halls, elevators, and laundry room were hot. This made for smelly elevators too. Really, it was minor and had more to do with the time of year, so understandable. I would recommend this condo for a couple or small family. The one bed was huge and comfortable and the other was a pull out couch that could sleep two, if necessary. The place was very clean and nicely decorated. I would not, however, recommend staying in August when Hawaii is so beautiful other months. less

Cleaning and great location
I’m a detail-oriented, neat freak. This place is very clean, including the shower which has zero mildew; it felt new and clean. Perfect condo location. Let me tell you why. The condo looks out to the marina side which hands down, has the better view... more when compared to the Hilton lagoon side. Especially being on the 16th floor AND out further towards the water, people from the neighboring hotel across can’t really see you. Each morning upon waking up, I can see the view of the marina from bed. Dishes were spotless. Kitchen has a rice cooker and coffee grinder, just to name a few. I really appreciate having the beach chairs/umbrella, snorkel gears, cooler bag and styrofoam cooler, and colorful large beach towels! Now for the con’s: I think a spatula might be missing but otherwise all other utensils were abundant. The linens for the sofa bed had a slight odor of wet/damped clothes. Did I mention I also have a keen sense of smell? I actually had to wash them after our first night. This completely resolved the problem as it was just a faint smell. Finally...minus one star for the sofa bed. Sofa is fine but when converted, the bed is so uncomfortable. I feel like I’m laying on springs as the mattress is thin, uneven and sagging at some areas. It would definitely be uncomfortable for my 116 lb body. My 45 lb child was surprisingly ok even after 4 nights on it. 2 adults with 2 young kids would work but 4 adults would be uncomfortable in my opinion. Overall, for location, view and cleanliness, I would definitely stay here again! Helen and other contacts were highly responsive. Mahalo! less

Love that condo. Great views. Close to beach & shops. Nice & quiet. Will be back!
— john, Stayed 07/25/2018
Outstanding Unit. I found it to be consistently pleasant and well appointed. Ease of access was of great appeal A retunn is inevitable!
— Joseph Clifford, Stayed 07/16/2018
Good location and very nice condo
I enjoyed the condo along with the updated kitchen and bathroom. It was nice having the wall between the living room and bedroom for making it feel like an condo instead of a hotel room. I will be booking this again the next time I... more come to Oahu. less

Stay in Condo 1639 May 14-31, 2018
1639 is a nice, well appointed unit that has the right amenities for a comfortable stay. We like the unit and staying there and have done so 3 times so far and expect to be back. We tend to come and stay for 2 plus... more weeks and so we want to move in rather than live out of a suitcase. This can be a challenge given the number of things stored in the unit, especially on the bedroom closet shelves (right side) that we need to relocate to use the shelves for our clothes. The kitchen is good and and all appliances work normally. A/C, TV and Wifi all worked normally. Again it is a nice that we will use again. One suggestion would be the removal of the aluminum thing on the makai side of the lanai just to open the ocean view further. the view is one of the key features of the unit. less
— J, Stayed 06/05/2018
I just spent 4 nights in #1639 and look forward to returning, as soon as possible. The home has everything - fabulous view, great deck, comfortable furnishings, and all the kitchen accessories needed. The home was clean, and little extras like the beach towel and... more cooler bag were helpful. Wi-Fi was a cinch to turn on and worked well. The Ilikai location is perfect, also. Thank you, Helen! less
— Dean, Stayed 04/20/2018
Lovely ocean view condo
This is a condo that we have been enjoying for several years and have recently returned from another lovely Christmas Holiday at this clean, cozy and well maintained condo. The view is wonderful - overlooking the marina, ocean and Park. We love to relax on... more the spacious lanai enjoying the beautiful view and of course the amazing Hawaiian sunsets. Great location with a transit stop right at the Ilikai. The owner, Helen, is most gracious and always readily available to provide assistance if needed. less
— mary, Stayed 01/11/2018
The condo was well equipped.
Everything was okay with the condo except for the pool was being renovated (which we never saw anyone doing anything to it all the time we were there). This was a big disappointment as we are not beach people and that's why we booked the... more hotel was for the pool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The kiddy wading pool was open but not great for adults. Other than that everything was great. Sandra less

33RD Wedding Anniversary
The condo 1639 at the Ilikai Hotel was a remarkable experience. Not only were we the recipients of a breathtaking view of the Honolulu beachfront but the accommodations were clean as well as comfortable. We utilized the beach chairs and beach mats provided on a... more daily basis. Great location for restaurants & shopping. I highly recommend this condo to others and looking forward to our return visits. less
— Myrtice, Stayed 10/08/2017
We had a great time at the Ilikai. All of the arrangements were faultless, the apartment was exactly what we wanted, plenty of room, good air conditioning, peaceful and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Hawaii.

Ilikai Hotel Condos
Very nice accommodations and good value for price. Had an great experience! This was our first time renting and will definitely consider doing this again!
— Norberto, Stayed 08/31/2017
We have recently stayed at Condo 1639 and it was fabulous! The apartment has everything you need with wonderful views of the marina. Not having to check in/out was great all you need to do is enter the code and walk into the spotless clean... more apartment. We can't wait to return to Holoulu and we would definitely stay at this apartment again! less
— Amanda, Stayed 08/22/2017
wonderful condo with great views
My family and I stayed at the Ilikai condo 1639 in July for 10 days. The condo was very nice and had a wonderful view of the marina. It is a one bedroom with a comfortable bed separated by a wall from the living room... more area, which has a sleeper sofa. The unit itself was well stocked with all necessary items for the kitchen. The balcony was spacious and had beach chairs, snorkel gear, umbrella etc. stored for easy use on the beach. The condo was very clean, had a nice bathroom and kitchen and worked well for our family of three. The sleeper sofa was a bit old and maybe not comfortable for an adult, but for small children it wouldn't be a problem. The Ilikai itself was in a great location, with the beach around the corner next to the Hilton Hawaiian Village. There was an ABC store a block away and we made several trips to Walmart for food and water to keep in the condo. There was a coffee shop and small market store on the property, which was handy for emergencies. The pool was small and not elaborate, but we spent most of the time on the beach anyway. The unit overlooked the marina and the ocean beyond and it was relaxing watching the boats come in and enjoying breakfast on the balcony every morning. We even saw a couple of rainbows - which were stunning. It was easy working with the condo owner and we had absolutely no issues during or after our stay. I am in the travel profession and I travel all over the world. I would highly recommend renting from this owner as she takes pride in her condo and makes the process seamless for the traveler. Thank you Helen! less

1639 May 2017
Overall we were very happy with our stay in 1639. Everything was clean and nice and we were comfortable treating it as if it was our own. We previously owned a condo in Hawaii Kai and so we are comfortable living Hawaiian style. The condo... more includes several extra items that are helpful to make outings to the beach or other places more fun. We enjoyed our stay and will repeat in the future. We just had one minor problem. The remote for the air conditioner quite working due to dead and corroded batteries. I was reluctant to pry the batteries out of the remote concerned about damage to the remote. The Aloha Condos information sheets provided with the reservation furnished a on island contact for things like this. However I found when I called, that the referred contact was no longer under contract for the service. I then took some time to finally get a telephone number for Aloha Condos off the website which was the Hawaii Island office rather than the Oahu office that I wanted. The fellow did take on the problem and found the correct local contact and Syndi Chen called and then came and fixed the remote. There was more hassle involved for the guest than should have been to get the correct contact. Should be one phone call. I suggest that the paperwork to be sent out be proofed for accuracy for the local contact. I also suggest that a telephone number for the local Oahu office be provided for situations like this. My rating was reduced from 5 because the hassle I experienced could have been avoided. Would have gone 4.5 if that was a choice. less
— J Henry, Stayed 05/24/2017
We visit Hawaii yearly and this was our first time using the Ilikai condos. We were very disappointed that for a 10 day stay we were only provided with 2 bath towels each. We are on holidays and usually bring enough clothing etc so we... more don't have to waste time using the laundry room but had no choice. If this is the situation I believe that the condo should have its own washing machine etc as other appts do. While the condo appeared neat on our arrival the floors left our feet black on the soles, the couch was a bit smelly and definitely needed a steam clean and the covers for the bed also the same so We folded them up and stored them in the cupboard for our stay. No drawers to put small items of clothing away, never been to a condo or hotel room where this wasn't provided. We won't be staying here again and will not be recommending these condos to anyone. less
— Richard, Stayed 05/10/2017
Aloha Richard, Thank you for your feedback. We apologize if the experience was not what you expected. We encourage guests to contact us during their stay if there are issues and we will do our best to fix any problems. Unfortunately, the Ilikai building bylaws do not allow washing machines to be installed in individual apartments. There are coin operated washing machines located by the elevators on each floor. We have updated our check-in procedures to have the option for more frequent towel changes and have requested for the cleaners to pay more attention to the floors. Our local manager always checks the unit prior to guest arrival to ensure cleanliness. The bedroom and bathroom closets contain a generous amount of shelving that guests can use to store folded clothing and smaller items. Many of our guests who come for longer stays have enjoyed this feature. We do hope that you will reconsider staying at a vacation rental. Again, thank you for your feedback so we may improve. Have a great day! Helen
A Lovely Condo to enjoy your vacation at.
We are returning guests who have enjoyed several vacations at this lovely condo and feel like it is our home away from home. The location is perfect (on the quiet side of the Ilikai). The Ala Moana Shopping Center only a 5 minute walk, and... more the Hilton Hawaiian Village next door. The lanai is very spacious, overlooking the marina and Ala Moana Beach Park. The sunsets are gorgeous (even in December). The condo is very clean, nicely furnished and well equipped, including beach towels, etc. The owner (Helen) is most gracious, easy to contact and responds promptly to any needs that may arise. I would definitely recommend this condo without hesitation. less
— mary, Stayed 01/07/2017
Thank you, we had a lovely holiday in Condo 1639. The condo was well appointed and in a great position. You really cannot beat the views and the lanai is very generous. The video and pictures of the condo are a perfect illustration of the... more accomodation, so you can trust that what you see is what you get. We have been to Hawaii a number of times and this condo made us feel like we had come to our home away from home. Helen was very responsive via email when we had any questions. Our only regret is that we are not still there on holidays! Thank you again. less

Ilikai Condo 1639
This unit has a calming ZEN fell to it. You can be in the midst of Waikiki, without the noise and confusion of mass tourist traffic at hotels close by. Beautiful setting look out over the ocean and HNL Yacht Club. Only exception is personal... more amenities like tp and soap needs to be increased for the unit. Fabulous location! less

Another 5 star review
We just returned from a wonderful & relaxing week in 1639. We appreciated the lovely decor & many thoughtful touches in this elegant & comfortable property. It is perfect for a couple. We look forward to a future visit. The condo is exactly as pictured... more in the walk-through video. It is tastefully decorated with many attractive details. We appreciated the comfortable King bed & its lovely linens, as well as the partial wall separating the bedroom & living area. There is plenty of room & hangers in the large, mirrored closet. We liked being able to completely unpack (there are shelves on the right side of the closet) & still have ample space to put away our suitcases. One of the little things I didn't expect, yet much appreciate, was the tempurpedic-style pillow in the closet. I typically carry one with me in my suitcase when I travel. Doing so takes up extra room & is a bit of a hassle. It was a nice surprise to discover one waiting in the closet. Next time, I'll know I won't have to bring my own. There are high quality, plush beach towels in the bathroom cupboard as well as an extra set of bath towels each. There are also beach mats & beach chairs on the spacious lanai, in addition to other comfortable seating. We also appreciated the "granny cart" for carrying back our groceries, on the days we did not have a car. We appreciated, too, having initial supplies, like dish soap, salt & pepper, & cold water waiting in the frig. Very thoughtful. The view is simply beautiful at any time of day. I've stayed twice before at the Ilikai with a lagoon view & now prefer the Marina side. Gorgeous sunsets! The entry/exit locking system is easy to use. The owner was always prompt & kind in answering any questions or with any correspondence. The overall location is terrific. Near the action without being right in the midst of it. Although we had a car for 4 of our days, you can get by without one. As for groceries, Food Pantry is nearby & the new Foodland (Ala Moana Mall) is now open. Both are within easy walking distance & less costly than the ABC superette across the street. Walmart for groceries is another option, if you don't object to a longer walk. The Bus stops conveniently right in front of the hotel. Although we were prepared to use the hotel's valet parking ($28/day), we didn't have to. During the day, you can park a rental car for free, in any of the spots around the lagoon, & park for only $1/hour at night in the Marina lot. The lot is no longer limited to a 10 hr maximum, so it was very convenient. I recommend this beautiful property without reservation & look forward to returning. Mahalo, Helen, for a happily-memorable stay! less
— Susan & Jerry, Stayed 09/09/2016
We were so exited to arrive at the Ilikai condo and we were not disappointed! The photos on the website are very accurate and the description of the condo is perfect. Everything one could want is provided including some extra amenities that were most appreciated.... more This condo is immaculate, the bed is most comfortable, the kitchen fully furnished, the view is extraordinary, and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy this lovely place. We are hoping to rent this exceptional condo again in the future. less

Excellent Ilikai Apartment
This is an excellent apartment, well presented with everything you need. The owner has provided nice extras like flippers and goggles, beach chairs etc. This apartment has the bedroom separated from the lounge which adds to its appeal. Great location in walking distance to Ala... more Moana, next door to the Hilton and it's Friday night fireworks. Would book this apartment again as one of the more comfortable stays I have had in Hawaiip less
— Kingsley, Stayed 07/07/2016
More than Expected
We arrived 6/1/2016 and found everything to be very satisfactory. Even beach chairs and snorkel equipment for our use. Great morning views from the Lanai for that morning coffee and for the evening relaxation. Only thing I can say is that some of the knives... more weren't clean and do not lock the door from the inside when you leave... you have no key so you will have to call the Honolulu contact and get security to let you back in.... Great place .... less

Excelent unit in the Illikai
We are a couple who stayed in unit 1639 for the first two weeks of November 2015. This is a lovely property and has been remodeled in the recent past. It is clean, classy and attractive. The bedding and the bed are excellent. The kitchen... more is well equipped and you can tell it is used regularly by the owners by the quality of things like the furniture, the lighting, the toaster, coffee machine and the cutlery. The deck is spacious, with a nice table and chairs and has a wonderful view overlooking the marina. The wifi is reliable. I can't think of any negative item about this unit and would happily rent it again anytime. The owner (Helen) is a thoughtful, pleasant, excellent communicator and will do everything to make your stay enjoyable. In addition, they have some snorkel gear that worked well for both of us. We have stayed in one other unit in the Illikai and 1639 was definitely a step up in quality. This condo deserves a rating of 5 stars in our opinion! less

The views just add to the whole experience and the location is just where you want to be and very convenient. We do have to see you again soon!
nice view and great vaulue

Condo 1639 the best yet
This was our 5th stay at the ilikai hotel in owner owned condos. 1639 was the best!! We enjoyed the west side of the building as it was shady in the am had an unobstrutive view of the ocean and harbor. The room was great,... more bed was fantastic but the air conditioning was the best. . The electric Fujitsu inverter was fantastic. For us the window units are noisy and don't cool that well . Fully furnished, excellent restroom and shower, comfortable furniture..... I can't say anything bad about 1639. This will be our condo of choice from now on. Kudos to Monica taveres, out local contact. We got locked out one day due to a broken door handle, but she called a locksmith who was there in 30 minutes. She took time out from her Sunday and came to hotel personally and made sure repairs were done. Thanks for a great condo Helen!👏👏👏 less
— Terence, Stayed 10/11/2015
We were very very pleased with the Condo and really enjoyed our stay there. I would like to thank the owners for all the little things that they so thoughtfully added to make our stay better like the umbrellas, the snorkeling gear, the beach towels... more and the beach chairs and more. The Condo was well furnished, clean and comfortable with a fantastic view. less

Perfect End to our Holiday
We had been travelling for almost 3 weeks, stay in hotels and booked our last 4 nights in Condo 1639. Everything you need for a pleasant stay is supplied. The bed was very comfortable and the view was amazing. It was so great to be... more able to cook for ourselves and enjoy the comforts of this condo. It was also a bonus that the condo was positioned so that you have privacy on your Lanai as some of the other rooms face onto other condo Lanais. This Condo is in good condition and would definitely stay again. Highly recommend :) less

Fully Satisfied Stay
This condo was a perfect fit for my wife and I, as we relished a week alone without our kids! It is very well maintained and was very clean when we arrived. As soon as we walked in we were very happy with the choice.... more The view from such a high floor was great. There were lots of little things sitting around, for example towels and lots of kitchenware, dishwashing soap, snorkeling stuff on the balcony, etc. which was really nice, so we didn't have to go out and buy lots of little things. Helen was excellent and answered zillions of my questions, for example advising us on nearby groceries, and even places to visit during our stay. My only minor issue, and one that was made clear to us well in advance, was needing to spend about $20/day on parking. The location is perfect - right on the beach, and close walking distance to the well known Waikiki shopping district. If I were going to stay in Honolulu again, I would definitely consider taking this place again. Also, the price was pretty good, after lots of hunting around. And even the restaurant and bar downstairs were significantly cheaper than the neighboring properties, but still very nice. less

GOOD PLACE FOR COUPLE OR SMALL FAMILY
GOOD CLEAN CONDO, BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF THE YACHT HARBOR AND BEACH. CLOSE TO THE ONLY ROCK-FREE BEACH AND WAVES-FREE BEACH. ALL AMENITIES IN CONDO WORK GOOD. MARKET AND ABC STORE NEARBY FOR ALL YOUR WATER, GROCERIES, AND SOUVENIRS NEEDS. FREE ALL DAY PARKING AT NEARBY... more BEACH FROM 6AM TO 10PM (3 MINUTES WALK TO THE HOTEL), THEN $7.00 for 10 HOURS OVERNIGHT PARKING AT GARAGE ON TOP OF RED LOBSTERS, IF YOU HAVE A CAR. A LITTLE FAR FROM THE WAIKIKI STRIP, IN RETURN YOU GET MORE QUIET TIME AT NIGHT. less
— Richard, Stayed 09/01/2015
Unit 1639 was a great rental for my wife and me. It looks just like the pictures and has a great view of the marina. It has all of the kitchen gear we needed and more. The face mask leaked, so be careful of that... more when going snorkeling. I payed for Valet parking and to me it was worth the $28/day, but apparently there are cheaper options around if you want to work a bit more for it. I would definitely stay here again! less
— PhillyMattAndK, Stayed 06/12/2015
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review for the condo at the Ilikai Hotel unit 1639. We are always glad to hear the condo worked well for you in everything you needed. The snorkel gear is not part of the listed amenities for the condo but just a bonus if available. One hint however is that because everybody has different size heads, the masks do not always contour to everybody and most of the time it must be extremely tightly strapped to keep the water out and then it is not a guarantee. The parking alternatives for the Hotel are the public paid parking at the Marina just outside the Hotel which is 1 dollar per hour. Also if you are willing to walk several blocks, there can be free curbside to be found of lucky. Also the Marina parking outside the hotel does have several free daytime spots along the fence bordering the lagoon. We hope you can come back again and stay with us. Mahalo for your business.
Great Spot - we will be back
This condo had everything we needed - nice furniture, comfy bed, big kitchen and the sunset view from our lanai was as hoped for - beautiful. Our couple of logistical questions were answered promptly and would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a great... more vacation spot in Waikiki. less
— mlmorr, Stayed 11/24/2014
Aloha, Thank you for your review and the high score given. This complex is located very conveniently downtown close to everything and one can walk to the beach right outside the complex. The views as you have mentioned are pretty incredible and the sunsets are a great way to end the day. We hope you will come again and stay with us in paradise. Thank you for letting us accommodate you.
Just as pictured
Beautifully remodeled unit. Have stayed at Ilikai several times but never through Aloha Condos. Check in/ out was a breeze and we loved not having a key. Everything you could want in the kitchen. Can't wait to come back in two years.

Best Part of our Stay
My Wife and I have stayed in this same condo many times in recent years. Each time it is like coming home to us. Helen Ting is a joy to work with and the condo itself is always pristine and clean. What can I say,... more the views every night, the fireworks every Friday along with the Aloha show on the patio, a life of leisure. The condo is newly rennovated and contains all things you could ever want. Walking distance to more than I can say. The value far exceeds the price. There is free WiFi, long distance to Canada and US calls all free. The digital keepad for the door means you dont have to take any valuables to the beach with you. Mahalo Mahalo Mahalo! less

Great views, close to Waikiki Beach
This condo was very clean, well appointed,nicely updated and decorated. It had views of the ocean and the harbor. Waikiki was just a short walk along the beach. We were able to walk to ala Mohana Mall for shopping. There are restaurants and shopping on... more site and close by. This condo would be perfect for a romantic getaway or for senior couple traveling alone. less

Family Time in Hawaii
Friends recommended the Ilikai and I'm so happy they did. Easy to find just the right room and the price was right. The rooms were wonderful, all the basics and plenty of extra nice items as well like: beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear, boogie... more boards. Sitting on the lanai each morning with coffee was perfect. Easy access to everything. Walking distance to the beach, shopping, dining. This is where we will stay the next time we visit Hawaii. less

opening the door when I first arrived was impressive. Great view of the Harbor and the ala Moana shore line. Condo was very clean and had all you need for comfortable stay [except food and beverage].

Would love to return again
It was our first time to rent a condo in Hawaii, and was more than we expected! The condo is very well equipped, we were especially grateful for the packn' play, beach towels and beach mat. Sunset from the lanai is beautiful, and the condo... more is thoroughly clean. The staff at the resort were also very nice, the parking staff let us park in front of the resort for 30 minutes while we unloaded our luggage. Helen, thank you very much, we would love to return again. less

wonderful - it exceeded our expectations in every way
The condo was lovely, clean and updated so nicely - it was a pleasure to come back to each day we were there. This is the first time we have stayed at that end of Waikiki and we were very impressed with the location, the... more view from our condo and the hotel in general. The rental transaction was precise and detailed. We enjoyed everything about out stay. A couple of minor items we thought of,a small box of Kleenex and 2 instead of one extra roll of toilet tissue would have been appreciated, Thank you for making our vacation so special - have already booked for next Xmas. less

Second time in Ilikai 1639 - great stay
We have stayed in the Ilikai several times. Last year we booked 1639 and we were very happy with it so this year we scheduled our vacation around the availability of this unit. I guess you can tell how much we like it. The location... more is great for us to visit relatives on Oahu, close to bus, restaurants, shopping, etc. We really like the marina and ocean view from the 16th floor. This condo is nicely updated with everything we need for our stay. The owner is great to work with - fast email communication and she went above and beyond in getting something fixed, even after we assured her that we could deal with it as it was. We are looking forward to returning to this "home" on our next trip. less

the condo was immaculate and very easy to access, i never had any dealings with the owner while i was in Hawaii as there was no need, everything went smooth. the location was very good, a lovely view over the marina, it was about a... more 3 min walk to the beach which suited me fine and about a 10 min wak to the busy area with lots of shops and restaurants (although there was a few good bars / restaurants right on the door step), this walk also suited me fine, especially after a beautiful meal at the world famous cheescake factory :-) my only and ever so small complaint is that the bed was not very comfortable but we managed. would definately reccommend this condo x less

Excellent location with great view
This contemporary condo has been decorated with style. It is light and airy with a spectacular view of the marina and the Ala Moana Beach Park. My husband, I and two teenage children enjoyed our stay and the convenience of the location which was out... more of the busy part of Waikiki but next to the Hilton Resort. We had a great stay and would recommend to others. It was great to be able to use the bar of the next door Modern Honolulu, would have been even more perfect to have access to their pools as the pool for the Ilikai is basic. That said, there's the whole Pacific on the door step. less

Great location, comfortable and well equipped apartment
We recently enjoyed a 5 night stay in apt 1639. It was very clean and comfortable. We had 4 of us staying there and were all able to comfortably sleep. The bed was very comfy. Views magnificent, although quite a height! Appreciated the little things... more like dw tablets, cloths etc which saved money. Internet was quick and easy to use. All amenities were spotless and clean and worked well. Would recommend to a family of 4. Appreciated the beach towells and equipment too - my son used the boogie board and snorkelling equipment.

Terrific holiday in a lovely condo with awesome views right by t
This was my first time at the Ilikai Hotel and I was very happy that I chose to stay in this beautiful condo with amazing views of the Marina and ocean. It had everything that we could want, with lovely furnishings, renovated kitchen, with granite... more countertops, and the bed was very comfortable. We loved having our meals on the lanai, watching the boats and activities, and the beautiful sunsets. We were very happy to have the use of beach chairs and mats, and it was only a five minute walk to the beach. Thank you Helen for allowing us to stay and we will return for sure. less

Excellent, Gorgeous View
The condo was absolutely superb!! The view from the 16th floor was breathtaking. The unit itself was very modern, up to date and complete. The location is great near both ala Moana and the Waikiki area. There are many stores nearby to pick up staples... more for breakfast lunch and dinner, and may restaurants in various price ranges. We had a dinner at the top of the Ilikai one night and were surprised at how nice and reasonable it was for a very fancy place. The only problem is parking. If you want to park reasonably you have to be at the right place the right time. We used valet parking at $25 a day to avoid all that searching and walking back to hotel. I thought that $132 for cleaning after 4 days a bit much. less

Home away from home... with a view!
This condo was well appointed had been recently renovated and was very comfortable. Our little girls slept on the pullout sofa and we slept in the separate bedroom. The Lanai was very spacious and ours was the only one with a sliding aluminum shutter door... more which was great when the afternoon sun started beating in through the sliders. The view was amazing and we had a front row seat for the 4ht of July fireworks! The location was great, central and easy to get around. the condo itself had a bunch of little things that made the stay easy..napkins, cleaning supplies, garbage bags, condiments all meant we didn't have to waste time or money shopping for those things. Laundry facility and trash were right down the hall. It was really convenient and comfortable. We will be back next year, definitely! less

Really enjoyed the beautiful sunsets here
We loved your condo & this building so much we are buying one. We did come to check out the building, location, views & what is currently on the market. We really love Ilikai now. Before we stayed here we thought we wanted the Lagoon... more side but decided we like the Marina/Sunset side better. Your condo was as beautiful as the pictures & had everything we needed to enjoy our time there. Loved the keyless entry too. less

The condo was very nicely decorated and very clean with everything you could possibly need, right down to snorkel and goggles, beach mats and beach umbrella! Appreciated the fact that dishwashing powder and liquid was supplied and also that small things like salt & pepper... more etc had been left there by previous visitors. There was an abundance of towels, hand-towels also which was handy. My one and only negative was that the sofa bed was very noisy and not very comfortable. Everytime someone rolled over in their sleep you could hear them very clearly. The view from the balcony was superb as were the sunsets and sometimes the fact that it was away from the hustle and bustle of central Waikiki, made it very relaxing and more peaceful. less

We really enjoyed the condo and the Ilikai.
We had everything we needed for a most enjoyable stay. The condo was so well equipped that we lacked nothing. We normally cook alot while on vacation but due to the many committments we had were unable to utilize and enjoy that awesome kitchen. We... more really like the partition between the bed and the rest of the unit. Most units we looked at did not have that. We appreciated the great updates to the condo. Had an exciting afternoon with the laundry room fire and arrival of all the fire and police but all turned out well. Loved the view but weren't able to enjoy the sunsets due to clouds and being out at sunset time. Thanks for sharing your lovely condo. less

Excellent Choice in Condos
Stayed in this condo for five nights and could not have made a better decision for lodging. The condo is extremely clean, very well-equipped (kitchen, linens, beach items), modern amenities, excellent view of ocean and ala Wai Marina, and quiet. Given that it is a... more one-bedroom, it is quite spacious. We were in town for Uh's graduation ceremony and were able to host a dinner for 8 people very comfortably. Valet parking is $25/day which was a bit high (I thought) but it was well worth it given that nearby self-parking was $20/day. The valets were courteous and the car was delivered quickly. Online reservation process was effortless and owner response was excellent when contacted. Would highly recommend this unit and would most definitely stay here again. less

We considered getting a condo facing the lagoon, but we are so happy we didn't this side of the building is much quieter and the view at night with... more the marina all lit and the city lights was breathtaking. Helen was great to work with and very knowledgable.There is so much to do in Oahu and this is a great home base and convenient to everything.

Great condo, great location we will be back
Everything about the condo was as advertised and pictured on the Website. Modern, clean, well equipped, perfect location, great views, good price. Everything you need is close by from grocery stores to restaurants. The view from the lanai was so spectacular at sunset we ordered... more out and had dinner there on several occasions. Having a laundry room available was also helpful. Every possible means of transportation stopped at the front of the hotel. The only suggestion we have is that we found the sofa bed uncomfortable (felt springs through the thin mattress) and had to use it in the sofa configuration. That worked fine with us since we had only three adults. There is no question we would use the condo again on our next visit and recommend it highly. less

Fantastic condo ! We loved it
This condo is beautiful. It is really nicely decorated and luxurious. The kitchen is equipped with the best quality appliances and utensils. The queen bed is very comfortable and there is lot of space to storage luggage and clothes. The bathroom with plenty of thick... more towels has a spacious shower. We were happy to have at our disposal beach chairs, beach umbrellas and nice beach towels. We were with our 2 kids and they were additional chairs either to eat inside or on the lanai all together. We took nearly all our meals outside on the lanai and appreciated the spectacular view. We appreciated too to have access to free WiFi and free calls. The condo is also very well located, a few steps from the beach and not directly in the crowd of Wakiki. This condo is perfect and we highly recommend this unit to anyone.

Can't wait to go back!
My wife and I decided to go to Hawaii to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. My wife spent months on the internet trying to find just the right holiday. She looked at all of the different hotels and weighed the plus' and minus'. We finally... more decided on Unit 1639 at the Ilikai. What a great call. We loved this suite. We actually had friends come with us and they stayed in a different room at the Ilikai so we were able to do a little comparison while we were there. Although their room had two beds there was no storage so they had to live out of their suitcases. We had nice big clothes and linen closets. Their room felt like a hotel room, ours felt like a home. They did not have the same services as us, such as free internet, free long distance, and our tv service was better. Although we loved the rest of Waikiki, this room was the highlight of our trip. The view of the marina is great and the sunsets are fantastic. The Ilikai is located at the end of the beach but this was not a problem for us. It is no more than a short walk to anything. We will happily stay in this suite at the Ilikai again. less

Stylish, Immaculate & Great Location!
My family and I recently enjoyed a 3 night stay in Unit 1639 at Illikai Hotel and Apartments. We loved every moment from the friendly greeting by the Porter who helped us with all our bags to the great location only minutes walk from Ala... more Moana Shopping Centre and Waikiki shops/beach. The owners have created a very comfortable unit although within a small area. It is probably better suited to just one couple, however we had our 11 and 12 year old daughters with us and they were comfortable enough sleeping on the fold out couch. I must admit given the cost I had warned my family not to expect much having stayed at places up to that point that were 2 or 3 times the price, however once I opened the door we were all blown away at how beautifully the unit was furnished. Also the kitchen had everything you needed to cook a family meal etc if you wanted. The views from the balcony over the harbour were also quite relaxing. Overall I found the unit much quieter than previous accommodation we had stayed in at Waikiki Beachwalk. The only thing that would make this unit better would be if it had laundry facilities but there really isn't the room. There may be facilities elsewhere within the complex, to be honest I didn't ask. The owners may like to replace the locks getting into the unit as we found them a bit tricky sometimes to get open. Other than that I would honestly say that if you are a couple looking to stay in Honolulu you couldn't do any better. Thoroughly recommend and if we come back to Honolulu it is definately where we will stay! less

This condo is beautiful. Beautifully decorated, beautiful view, beautiful accomodations. Everything about the condo was luxurous. The apliances were all modern which we were expecting because of the photos. What I was delightfully surprised about was the super high thread count sheets on both the... more master bed AND for the pull out couch. In addition, the bath towels were luxureous! We had just finished a 6 night stay at the Hyatt down the road and the quality level of linens here blew the Hyatt away!! Thank you sooooo much! I loved that everything we could want or need in the condo was there. My children especially loved having the use of a boogie board and I loved the beach chairs. The only thing that I could complain about was that there was construction going on at the building next door and so we could not enjoy the lanai in the morning or afternoon because the jack hammering was too loud. less

— aah, Stayed 08/23/2009
Pretty nice first time in Oahu, thanks to this condo.
Really good interior design -- its a small space, but the layout really compliments the area so you never feel cramped or overcrowded by the furniture. Very modern and very clean. Although the boats were not much to look at, the sunrise/sunsets from this condo... more were awesome. You can even spot the surfers on the distant beach, and see regular cruise ships and freighters pass by. Our only concerns were the sliding door lock and the main bed. We had our 3yr with us, and there was no way to securely shut the door -- so ended up barricading the doors at night with furniture...lol. That and the main bed was really uncomfortable -- our son definitely scored with the comfy sofa bed. Re: Ilikai in general - many stores downstairs (lobby area) and the on-location restaurant were boarded up and vacant during our stay, so it has seen better days. The hotel next-door (what you see from lanai) is still undergoing renovation, but construction noise was not an issue. So barring the lobby area, the courtyard gardens were gorgeous. Plus every evening they light the torches outside and have a brief conch shell ceremony around sunset. Also has to be mentioned -- the shared lagoon in walking distance directly before the beach was awesome. They stock it with tiny fish, so all the kids had a blast trying to spot/chase/catch them. Turned out to be a lifesaver when we found out our son thought the sound of waves was 'too scary'! less

Thank you for comments about our condo. I will work to get a lock added to the sliding door to make it more secure in the future. Also, you mentioned that the main bed was uncomfortable. This concerns me greatly because I would like all of my guests to sleep well. Other guests have commented that the bed is extremely comfortable. It is a high quality mattress which was purchases just a few months ago. I value your feedback and will email you asking if you could offer more information. Your comments are greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Helen Ting, Owner
Heck of a Great Time
Really enjoyed staying at this condo. It was extremely clean, and well supplied. The condo was very modern right down to email access and a DVD player. Enjoyed having the full kitchen which made breakfasts very enjoyable on the lanai overlooking the beautiful view of... more the ocean. Highly recommend this property to anyone! We will definitely consider staying here again. less

The Ilikai is not as well maintained as we would have hoped. The neighboring hotel (which is part of the view) appears to be condemned or forgotten, with windows papered over and a pool full of brown water. The condo itself was nicely appointed, but... more the building fire alarms went off repeatedly in the night, requiring us to at least get up and call the desk, and at worst carry our frightened 5-year-old down many flights of stairs in the middle of the night. Could be a nice vacation spot after building and area maintenance are completed. less

Beautiful, Clean, Recently Renovated-Outstanding!
This is an extremely beautiful Condo ... the unit was recently renovated and was by far the cleanest rental unit that I have ever stayed in. The views from the Condo are beautiful - suggest that anyone considering staying on Oahu consider this Condo.
