Wonderful week in Oahu!
Perfect week! All the comforts of home in this Ilikai Marina condo! Communication with owners and on site staff was excellent. Beautiful views of sunsets and rainbows over the harbor. Laundry and parking on-site were very convenient. Mahalo!!!
— Kristen, Stayed 08/08/2022
Aloha Kristen, thank you for your review. So happy that you enjoyed your stay! Mahalo for choosing us! -Ray and Elaine
The condo is well located overlooking the marina and the western beaches. Great facilities and excellent thought has been given to providing for a comfortable stay. The bed and pillows are very comfortable and the room is quiet. A close walk to nearby Ala Moana... more shopping centre, with plenty of take-out restaurants nearby. There is a lack of higher quality restaurants nearby. Only negative (minor) is the balcony is too small to sit outside. less

1182 Still 5 Stars!!
1182 continues to tick all the boxes as a quiet & really convenient Oahu holiday base. Great set up - presented as spotlessly clean & tidy on arrival- this time we went up to Turtle Bay & used the snorkel/goggles, dropped /picked up our Enterprise... more rental car @ the Discovery Bay Centre across the road, made our pina coladas with the blender in the cupboard, plugged in our chromecast to the tv & watched Netflix/ Disney+ etc. We look forward to returning again soon - despite the disappointment of no Friday fireworks & only one teaspoon in the cutlery drawer 😱 less
— John , Stayed 05/06/2022
We had an awesome stay. The check in process, parking spot and everything at the condo was seamless. We didn’t have any issues. The internet was a bit slow if you are relaying on working on your laptop. The space was as described in the... more posting. It was clean and the owners thought of everything we needed for our stay. I will book the space again anytime I visit again! less
— Tenzin, Stayed 04/13/2022
Aloha, My husband & I had the best stay. We finally got to meet our 2 grandchildren in person and see our son. This condo had it all felt like home away from. We would absolutely come back. 10 stars It had everything and more.
— LORRAINE, Stayed 03/23/2022
From the moment we open the door to our condo, it was breathtaking! We couldn’t have selected a more perfect condo or location. The views were amazing. Walk to the beach with Short, and the condo accommodated us with all of our beach needs. It... more was clean and felt like home away from home. There was nothing we needed. The balcony was small but provided us with many mornings of a beautiful sunrise, and evenings with amazing sunsets. The location was close to everything. Can’t wait to go back. less
— Jeanette, Stayed 02/19/2022
The condo was the perfect accommodation for our week long stay in Honolulu! The place was well kept and very clean. That VIEW was INCREDIBLE!! We enjoyed every morning sun. There was NON-stop ocean straight out as far as the eye could see. You can... more look directly down and see the harbor water. It is only a very short walk (across the street) to the beach. The only inconvenience was a routine power outage (building maintenance?) that was happening the morning we were leaving, so trying to gather our things and leave in the dark was not ideal however, the owners were kind enough to leave several lanterns and flashlights to be able to see as best we could. Overall, lovely place we definitely recommend to others! less
— Christina, Stayed 02/04/2022
Beautiful, spacious fully equipped condo with a killer view. Look no further if you want to stay close to Waikiki and Ala Moana center. Would definitely book again if ever have a chance to go back to Hawaii!! Thank you Eva
— Eva, Stayed 02/01/2022
Beautiful condo, inside and out!
What a beautiful condo! The view is stunning. The condo has AC, a wonderfully comfortable king bed, a fully stocked kitchen, comfy chairs and couch, and lots of beach toys to use. Plus games and movies to watch. It's decorated beautifully, and also has extra... more linens, pillows, and towels. Bonus, if you forget a personal care item, even sunscreen, chances are there's something under the sink! less
— Erika, Stayed 11/22/2021
Awesome place with a great view. Close to most thing to do! Would highly recommend to anyone.
— Lawrence, Stayed 11/09/2021
First time to Hawaii and very blessed to have picked the perfect spot to stay! The host/hostess thought of everything as far as personal touches!
— Clinton, Stayed 09/19/2021
Its so easy!
We have traveled to Honolulu many times--always staying in hotels. This time we wanted something different and EASY. Condo 1182 at the Ilikai Marina fit the bill perfectly. Easy to arrive to, using Uber from the airport. Easy to access, taking the efficient elevator. Easy... more to enter, using the door combination (no keys to keep track of). Easy walking access to Waikiki beach, Ala Moana shopping center (check out the fabulous Foodland for your condo groceries), the Hale Koa barefoot bar (yummy mai tais) and the (free) Fort Derussy military museum. There are tons of restaurants and ABC stores nearby, and the hop-on hop-off trolley stops across the street at the Ilikai hotel. The condo unit itself... so easy to LOVE. We lacked for nothing!! You could seriously move in for a year and feel right at home. Sadly, we only had three nights...watched some beautiful sunsets, interesting harbor action and surfers, and even a pre-dawn full moon glistening off the water. Not easy to forget! less
— Ada, Stayed 07/01/2021
Every thing went well. Nice place! Beautiful view, thank you for allowing us to use the beach chairs and towels, cooler, boogie boards
— Kari, Stayed 03/06/2021
Beautiful view, perfect for a family with children
My husband and I have been traveling to Hawaii once a year for the past 10 years. Now that we have kids, we always look for a condo unit to stay, that can accommodate our young children as well. This unit is wonderful! First off,... more the view is beautiful! The place was also fully stocked with all the essentials for our 15 day stay! The location was perfect for us as it was only less than 10 minutes away from our family who live in town. Parking is $23/day which is pretty reasonable, and that is to be expected staying in the city. Overall, this may be our favorite condo because of the location, view and the ease of check in and check out! Will definitely be staying here again! less
— Vanessa, Stayed 01/13/2021
I enjoyed my short stay at 1182. Very comfortable bed and clean condo. Had a plumbing issue that was resolved right away. View was really nice. Wish I would have realized there was no pool.
— Susan, Stayed 02/27/2020
This is the second time we have stayed in this unit. It is decorated nicely, very clean and stocked with everything you would need/expect in such a unit. It is nice to have the extra room, with the sliding divider to separate the bedroom from... more the living room area. The bed is comfortable, the air conditioning works well and the room is very quiet. The view of the harbor and surrounding area is beautiful. The location is terrific as it is centrally located and close to shopping, restaurants and some attractions. We enjoyed our stay again, and will certainly try to stay here again when we return to Oahu. Thank you. less
— Ann, Stayed 12/24/2019
Oahu with friends
The condo was very clean and had beautiful views. Everything worked perfect and the parking and entry into the condo was effortless. I'm a sailor and loved waking up to the boats and the ocean. I would highly recommend this unit to everybody and will... more try to stay there again. Aloha and Mahalo Gary and Deborah Hall less
— Gary and, Stayed 12/09/2019
Wonderful stay at 1182
We were very pleased with our stay at 1182 Ilikia Marina. The Friday nite fireworks from our balcony were fabulous and the view of the harbour with gorgeous sunsets were terrific. What was especially wonderful was having cooking condiments ( spices) , beach equipment and... more extra towels. We appreciated the cleanliness , spotless! We look forward to returning! Thank you so much! Doug & Martha less
— Martha, Stayed 11/16/2019
I enjoyed my stay the condo was very well stocked the view was beautiful. Thank you for such a comfortable place to stay.
— Hhazel, Stayed 11/05/2019
Have stayed in the Ilikai Marina units for decades and 1182 is the best unit yet. Updated, decorated, and supplied with everything you might need. The best compliment I could pay is to say this unit is one that the owners themselves would be pleased... more to stay in. The only negative is that the toaster doesn't work but the toaster oven does as well as all the other appliances. This will be our go to place when we return. less
— Timothy, Stayed 09/23/2019
A very pleasurable and professional experience
As a former Hawaii hotel manager, I feel I am uniquely qualified to comment on the professionalism I experienced as a guest at Ilikai Marina, Condo 1182. Everything about our stay was "top notch" and "5 Star". As an additional bonus, the viewing of the... more Friday night firework show from the lanai was an awesome experience as we were so close to the show. less
— Michael, Stayed 08/31/2019
Great view, clean and convenient
Ilikai Marina condo #1182 is a clean, comfortable and well furnished condo conveniently located a short walk from the Ala Moana shopping Center, the Honolulu Convention Center and central Waikiki. We have rented at the Ilikai Marina several times and this unit is one of... more the nicer units. When we return to Waikiki, this condo is one that we would consider renting again. less
— Les & Jennifer, Stayed 07/31/2019
Booked for my husband so he could pick up my grandson from Hawaii, for our summer visit. They loved it! They were super pleased with everything.
— Natascha D, Stayed 07/03/2019
great location and beautiful view
We had a good two night stay here at the condo. My Husband, 16-yr old daughter and I stayed comfortably in this very nice condo. We walked to restaurants and the ABC store. And the view of the ocean is very nice. Great value for... more Waikiki. less
— Gigi, Stayed 07/01/2019
April 26 - May 5/19
We stayed in the Ilikai Marina Condo 1182 from April 26-May 5/19. The condo was very well appointed, lots of dishes, storage, and pretty much everything we needed for a great family vacation. The location is great, so nice to be able to just walk... more over to Foodland at Ala Moana. Two things that keep me from giving 5 stars: the lanai is so very small, my daughter and I could sit out on it, but my husband had to sit in the apartment. This is just a flaw in the design of the building, and nothing that the owners can fix, but it was still a disappointment. The other issue was the mattress on the sofa sleeper - it has obviously been very well used. My daughter lasted 2 nights on it, and then had such a sore back she had to move the mattress onto the floor each night. Otherwise, we would definitely recommend this condo to friends, and would come back for a future trip. Thanks for opening up your lovely home to us!! Hans, Louise, and Zoya less
— Louise, Stayed 05/12/2019
Hi Louise, thank you for staying at our unit. We’re glad that you enjoyed your stay! With regard to the sofa mattress, we purchased a high end mattress to ensure a pleasant sleep surface, and confirmed its condition recently when we visited our unit. Yours is the first and only complaint. We will of course check it again upon our next visit, given your new comment. Thanks again! -Ray and Elaine
Great place. Great location.
We spent a lovely time at the condo at Ilakai Marina. The condo was just right. The location was fantastic. We had a great view over the marina to the open ocean and great sunsets. Thank you.
— Shaun, Stayed 05/01/2019
Best condo we've stayed in at the Ilikai Marina
We stayed here for 2 weeks in February 2019. The condo is as pictured, very clean, and the AC was cold. One thing that sets this condo apart from the others in the building is the larger bathroom. There is plenty of storage for your... more things in the bathroom, the dresser in the bedroom and lots of empty hangers in the closet. The balcony is small, but large enough for two chairs and small table. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony each day watching for whales. The king size bed is very comfy and had lots of pillows. The kitchen is very well appointed. I cooked lunch and dinner several times during our stay. There was olive oil, coffee filters, several kinds of spices and every utensil I needed. There were brand new beach chairs and a large, new beach umbrella. Also, boogie boards, a small ice chest and several beach towels. There were even some ice packs for the ice chest. We have stayed at the Ilikai Marina several times and so far, this would be our favorite condo. Hopefully, this unit will be available when we come back in October. Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful condo in paradise. less
— Jerry & Kristin, Stayed 02/21/2019
Palm tree perfection
Aside from its very tiny lanai, this place is excellent. In addition to other reviewer comments: very quiet (just the gentle clanking of boat halyards at night, if you leave the door open), and new keyless entry is great (remember to lock it on the... more way out). There's a skyway on level 2 that leads all the way to the Hilton lagoon and thence real beach without crossing at street level, if you walk through The Modern's pool area. It's clearly not beachfront, but a modest walk gets you everything. - very well equipped... the best I've seen, kudos! - bluetooth and FM Sony stereo with decent sound-- tune in "da PaAina" station 93.1FM and you're done! - beach chairs, beach umbrella, small cooler, games, movies, books, dishwasher (!), coasters, plasticware, blender, toaster oven *and* toaster (yay!), just about everything you could ask for...even a cute teapot and a pineapple corer! - sharp knives! Phew. I always bring one of my own, but didn't use it. - decent pans, mostly... the smallest nonstick is badly scratched but others are good. - very quiet and effective central A/C... this is a huge win. Keep curtains closed when gone. - wishlist - a screen for the sliding lanai door, even a temporary one-- to ensure birds and bugs (of which I saw very few) stay out...without that, I hardly left the lanai open. The birds are there as soon as you open it, cute but pesky. - sunbrella seat cushions on the dining chairs.... clear plastic covers are icky... i covered them with a towel. - shaving mirror - quiet ceiling fan-- the one in there buzzes, but very good A/C means it is not really needed at all. - less bulky curtains so more view can be unobstructed when they are open. Currently about 1/3 blocked. - wow, is that it? this place is a great deal. Love the palm-tree decoration themes... I have the same bedspread in MN, my wishful thinking :) less
— David, Stayed 02/07/2019
The condo was as beautiful as advertised. We especially enjoyed viewing the 2 fireworks shows on New Years Eve from the balcony. What a treat that was!
— ROBERTA, Stayed 01/07/2019
Parking was easy in the garage under the building. No trouble getting into the unit. Bathroom drainage was very slow and this was a slight problem. Also the internet bandwidth was so limited that I got up during the night to plan the next days... more trips. When the internet bandwidth was saturated web access would simply timeout and this was a problem. There is a great acai bowl place across the street at bottom level called Tropical Tribe. We went there almost every day. We did three hikes including Diamond Head, Koko Head Crater and Moana Falls. All were good. There were also Friday night fireworks visible from the balcony. We tried fine dining once at a restaurant called Azure but cannot recommend it. The food was not worth the price. There was a military museum in Waikiki called Fort DeRussy which was very enjoyable. It has always been there but this is the first time that we noticed it and went through the exhibits. It is free to enter but we left a donation. less
— Ian, Stayed 01/06/2019
Thanks for staying at our place, Ian! Regarding the slow bathtub drain, please note that following your stay, we had the drain thoroughly snaked by a profession, including the adjacent unit. Problem solved! -Ray and Elaine
Convenient and well-stocked condo
This is the second time we have stayed in this lovely condo. The owners provide many extras for your use - check all the cupboards and closets! We enjoy watching the boats and people in the marina below from the (all be it tiny) lanai.... more Parking is convenient and readily available, building is easy to find, condo is very clean, WiFi works consistently, owners great at communicating....we hope to stay here again. less
— Rae, Stayed 12/04/2018
The condo was pretty perfect, with a beautiful ocean view, and lovely sunsets. Close enough to the beaches to be walking distance, and no need to wade through crowds to see Friday night fireworks. The unit is very nicely decorated, and the owners thoughtfully placed... more everything there we could possibly need. Only two small issues—the dishwasher was broken—we cooked about all of our own meals, so lots of dishes to wash by hand (first world problem, I know) and the laundry machines are actually $2.75 each load to wash and $2.25 to dry, so that just needs to be updated on the building info sheet. Other than that, it was a lovely place, and we didn’t want to leave. With the balcony door closed it was very quiet and peaceful. The kitchen and bath are nicely appointed with lots of room, and we loved the sliding wall between the bedroom and living room—it made a huge difference in choosing this condo over others where the bed is right next to the kitchen area. Conveniently, the Chart House restaurant is on the lobby floor—we had a wonderful dinner there. Also, it was easy to get around whether we walked, drove or took public transportation. Bus stops are right at the corner. This was an uncommonly nice place for the price! Next time we stay in Waikiki, we hope to return to the Ilikai Marina. We are so very grateful to the owners for proving such a nice home away from home! less
— Carol, Stayed 08/29/2018
Hi Tom, Mahalo for taking the time to provide a review. Very happy that our place met all of your needs! Until your next visit, Aloha!! - Ray and Elaine Owner follow up: please note that the dishwasher has been replaced with a brand new unit!
Nice home base to explore Honolulu
Recently our family went to Honolulu for a short vacation and we needed a decent place to stay. After looking through hundreds of listing in Tripadvisor, BnB and similar sites, we settle for this home. It was a good choice. We treated the home like... more it was ours. 1) Place felt "homely" and decoration was tasteful 2) Close to the Marina, not far from Ala Moana mall and other popular touristy locations(though some you have to walk 1-2 miles but we like walking) 3) Queen sized sofa bed did not feel cheap, mattress did not feel like cardboard per my daughter. Glad to know the owner didn't go cheap on this. Comfort is important especially when it comes to getting a good night sleep 4) Bed was comfy 5) Bathroom was cleaned 6) Nice cool AC was running in good condition(very important in my book) Only minor issue I would mention is anyone could take the elevator up to the condos. Its not like a hotel where you can use a electronic key to get to the floor of your room. So there is always a possibility that a bad buy could go up there. Even though there is a security office near the elevator, the person is not always there to monitor. The laminated flooring is nice but a bit dusty in areas that people don't walk often. Lot of cooking related pots, simple ingredients are available if you need to use it. We ate out everyday and didn't really use the kitchen. Bath and beach towels were plentiful, I worried that we did not have enough. I'd stay here again if I am in Honolulu again. less
— David, Stayed 08/23/2018
Hi David, so glad you enjoyed your stay! Regarding the curtains, thankfully the windows span the entire window, to offset the issue that you mention require bulky curtains. The curtains are admittedly more bulky because we chose black-out blinds to enable our guests to sleep-in later as desired. Thanks again! -Ray and Elaine
Aloha! This is you spot!
Overall, this was an outstanding place for our family (two adults plus two kids: 14 and 16). We were close to everything in terms of beach/food/etc, and we used public transit all week. The condo itself was well appointed and had everything we would ever... more need, and the beds were comfortable all around. No complaints from anybody about anything. Highly recommended! less
— Tom Enright, Stayed 08/17/2018
Enjoyable stay at Condo 1182
We really enjoyed our stay at this condo, it had everything we needed, and the views were amazing. Parking was easy, we never had a problem finding a parking space, and paid upfront for the 5 days, easy access to the lifts. There was a... more pub, restaurants and ABC stores close by. The Hilton Hawaiian Village with a lagoon, shops, bars and restaurants was only about a 5 minute walk, and a couple more minutes to the beach. Was lovely to watch the sunsets from the lanai. Would have been 5 stars except for a minor issue with the water backing up in the bath/shower. Can definitely recommend. less
— Cheryl, Stayed 06/29/2018
Location location location
Perfect location down the marina end of Waikiki - it was nice and quiet but we were able to easily walk into the thick of everything in no time. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you need and more. The beds are not... more the best (didn't stop us from sleeping) and the shower was not draining properly but these are minor things and we found the plunger and kept it in the shower! Waking up to that view everyday made it all worth it! Thank you and would definitely recommend Ilikai marina to friends and family Michelle and Cheryl less
— Michelle, Stayed 06/14/2018
May 10 - 18 2018
Thoroughly enjoyable, great view, clean and comfortable. Quiet except for people from bar when they are out on the street; solution - leave air conditioning on and sound no problems. We would definitely stay again on our next visit,
— Albert, Stayed 05/23/2018
very good place
Condo in excellent condition. Furnished well, perfect location. Close to the beach, restaurants. Prime location for Fridays fireworks! I would recommend it highly. Rating 4.5. Minor drawbacks: Parking is not included. Need to pay extra at $23 per day. Does not have washer and dryer... more in the condo. The TV set is OK, but the channel subscription is very limited. less
— KNB, Stayed 05/04/2018
Clean and everything as it should be. Absolutely no problems whatsoever.
— Eric, Stayed 03/23/2018
The entry to the unit is the same one employed by realtors, a lock box on the door knob, Quick, easy and efficient. The unit was clean, tastefully decorated and equipped. By equipped I mean there were items one would never expect in a rental:... more spices, containers for leftovers, plastic & aluminum wrap, toaster & toaster oven, 2 coffee makers, WiFi, DVDs & VHSs, beach chairs & umbrella, snorkeling equipment, a cooler and frozen ice packets in the freezer. The king bed was very comfortable and the panoramic view was awesome. We had first class seating for the Friday fireworks, the nightly sunsets and in walking distance to everything imaginable. A GREAT place to stay!!!!! Mahalo less
— Ken, Stayed 03/10/2018
Aloha Ken, Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and that everything was to your liking. Mahalo for staying at our place! -Ray & Elaine
Beautiful condo and fantastic location
A large and lovely condo with a beautiful mountain view from the deck and sunset view across the street. Close to groceries, food, hiking, but at the same time still feels cozy and remote and lush. Everything in working order. Wonderful hosts with great communication.... more Thank you!! less
— Lucy, Stayed 02/25/2018
We had a nice 3 days in this condo. We enjoyed being able to just walk out the door and down the beach from it to Waikiki. Beautiful view of the ocean and marina. It was clean and adequately stocked.
— Jacqueline, Stayed 12/23/2017
Lovely comfortable condo. Nice amenities and very clean. It was fun to look out the balcony at the people and boats. We did see some fireworks from the balcony on an unscheduled day too! We were a bit surprised at how small the balcony was... more though, but was not a big deal as we were out sightseeing during the days and only really used for an hour or so in the evening. Condo location had easy access to many great restaurants too. Would definitely recommend this condo if looking in Waikiki! less
— Ann, Stayed 12/20/2017
My wife and I were able to come in and enjoy our time on Oahu. The Condo is in GREAT shape and very clean with an excellent view and location. We were able to walk to all the places we wanted to go and felt... more very comfortable with the location and building itself. We will definitely be staying here again. Mahalo, Michael and Kristi less
— Michael, Stayed 12/02/2017
Hi Michael and Kristi, Mahalo for choosing our place for your stay, and glad you had a wonderful vacation. Aloha! -Ray & Elaine
This was our 4th return to Oahu; 2nd stay at #1182. (Nov. 5-7). We felt very fortunate that this unit was available when we returned. Very clean, tastefully decorated, and definite has a “woman’s touch”~~ from supplied kitchen items, to nite- lite in Bathroom, and... more much more! If you are searching for housing, you will not be disappointed in selecting this unit. The view of ocean/ boats/ sunset was stunning! We had other family members in #1190, and all agreed 1182 was the better choice~ encountered the cleaning personnel upon exit who stated this unit was THE BEST in the building~~ we definitley agree! Our only regret is we don’t stay long enough...Thank-you Elaine and Ray for a true aloha experience! And may we recommend breakfast at Cinnamon’s.. a new- found love! ( very short walking distance). Parking was no problem as well as entrance to unit( secured door lock) . Can’t wait to return~mahalo! less
— Debi, Stayed 11/24/2017
Great location and comfortable condo
We go to Oahu a couple of times a year and keep trying different condos. This is the first one we have been to that we decided we would return to. We really enjoyed looking at the marine traffic. The condo was tastefully decorated. There... more were plenty of towels and linens. Although we didn’t have use for many of the items in the closets on this trip, it was great that the owners were thoughtful in providing beach chairs, coolers, towels, etc. The parking garage was great in that it is not so tiny like many others in Waikiki are. The owners were very pleasant to deal with and were very helpful and timely in sending the information one needed to get in. We were a bit stressed out when we had trouble figuring out the lockbox because we didn’t quite know how to open it at first. less

Hi Rae, Mahalo for your review! Very happy that you enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to your return to paradise! -Ray and Elaine
Neighbor island staycation
We wanted to celebrate A's birthday with a nice stay in Honolulu. Our stay at 1182 met that wish. The view of the marina, ocean and sunsets were lovely. Being on the 11th floor meant that we avoidedmost of the street noise. The condo was... more very comfortable and met all our needs. We will definitely look to stay here on future trips. less

Ilikai Marins 1182
Our favorite condo @ Ilikai Marina. We hadn't been able to stay for a while due to it's popularity. As always great views, comfortable apartment and all supplies necessary. Thanks Elaine
— John, Stayed 09/15/2017
Thanks for your reply, John. Sure glad you enjoyed your stay!
The condo had everything we needed and was in a nice location. Unfortunately, on our last morning there, the water in the building was shut-off. We had running water in the kitchen sink, but the bathroom water was completely shut off - toilet, shower, faucet)... more The property manager was gracious and extended us a late check-out. However, the water was suppose to be shut off from 9-11 a.m. and in actuality never came back on until almost 12:45. We had to take sponge baths using a dish washing tub from under the kitchen sink before we took our 9 hour flights back to the main land. Otherwise, we had a nice stay and the condo was very comfortable. less
— Jane, Stayed 08/17/2017
Hi Jane, Thanks very much for your review. Very sorry to hear of the unexpected water shut off. As with most large condo complexes, on rare occasions the entire building is subject to periodic maintenance which affects all units. Unfortunately that is something that we have no control over. Glad your stay was otherwise enjoyable. Hoping you'll consider us for your next trip to Waikiki! - Ray and Elaine
plz ventilate room after using clorox
as soon as i opened the door of unit i hold my breath because of strong smell of disinfectant. i even opened the balcony door for hours, but it still gave me headache for all night long.
— HYUN JU, Stayed 08/10/2017
We’re sorry you experienced a reaction to the cleaning agent. We always try to be certain the unit is thoroughly sanitized for incoming guests. We will take your suggestion regarding ventilation seriously.
A great Stay!
We had a wonderful stay at Ilikai Marina 1182. The Condo had everything we needed (and more!). When we arrived the condo was comfortably cool, very clean, and there were even Welcome chocolates from the owners! Our 3-night stay (although too brief) was awesome. Ilikai... more Marina is a great location, on the edge of Waikiki, away from crowds and traffic, but within walking distance of Waikiki, great beaches and Ala Moana Shopping Center. The stunning view of the ocean, the harbor and Magic Island is amazing. We definitely plan to return, and when we do, we will stay in 1182 again! less

Hi Robert, So glad you enjoyed your stay, and looking forward to your return! -Ray and Elaine
Location & condo would've been 5 stars, but...
Based on the location of this condo, the condo itself, and the price paid, I would totally give it 5 stars. However, when we arrived on Saturday night, after a delayed flight from Los Angeles, we found a dirty & wet pile of towels in... more the bathroom, all three trash cans full of garbage, sheets that had obviously been used piled on the end of the couch, used, wrinkled sheets on the king bed, and used bars of soap on both the bathroom sink and in the shower. We had no closet hanging space because, unsure of what else to do with the dirty items, had piled them in the laundry basket in the closet. The next morning, we also had to plunge the shower, due to the wad of hair that was clogging up the trap. There is NO WAY anyone was in to clean the condo between the previous guests leaving and our arrival. After talking to the cleaning crew (the only people who ever responded to our issues), we discovered someone had slipped in an extra booking without alerting them. We loved the layout and the view, but would have appreciated more rapid handling of these issues, as it was Monday morning before we had any resolution. The majority of this review is copied and pasted from the emails I sent to the owners after we made the condo sleepable for ourselves. I would not recommend for someone to book this condo without the caveat that I'd call (since email doesn't get you a response) the night before I was checking in to be sure no additional & unexpected bookings had been made. less

We really enjoyed our stay at the Condo. It was very quiet and had an amazing view of the marina and the ocean. The amenities were nice as well. We liked the fact that the garage was connected to the condo and everything was close... more by. We will definitely stay again next time we come to the Hawaii. less
— Cindy, Stayed 06/08/2017
Hi Cindy, Very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to your return to 'paradise'!
Felt like home. I like that it isn't in downtown Waikiki. Easy walk to the Hilton boardwalk and fireworks.
— Vicki, Stayed 06/04/2017
Wonderful stay!!! Wonderful place!!
The parking was perfect. So easy to get in and out and also easy to find parking. ABC store across the street. The condo was perfect for us. Close to Waikiki and also to Ala Moana....and the view....what can I say. Waking on a sunny... more morning with a cup of coffee and watching the ships....amazing. Thought we would have trouble with the coffee pot but it worked perfectly. Thank you and we would recommend the Ilikai!! less

Illakai Marina Condo 1182
We loved staying at 1182. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Definitely will come again. Great views and location. The condo was very well supplied with every conceivable item needed for a great stay. Wonderful! Thanks so much. Barbra and Alan Pullar. Christchurch, New... more Zealand. less

Beautifully remodeled unit
This unit is newly remodeled. Everything that you need was there. One thing we had to do was extra cleaning when we got there. There was so much sand on the floor in the living room. And after we cleaned the floor, we sat down... more the sofa and we realized there was also a lot of sand on the sofa, too. It was a lot like we can grab them. Otherwise we had comfortable stay there. less

Hi SK, very happy that you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate your inputs on the cleaning issue that you experienced. Please know that our cleaning team pride themselves on exceeding expectations, as you can tell from the many positive guest posts. That said, we're taking your input to heart and are continuing to refine the cleaning methods now that our beautiful hardware floors have replaced the carpet. We're confident that our future guests will be greeted by a very clean condo. Mahalo -Ray and Elaine
Condo 1182 home away from home
Hi Elaine, We enjoyed the condo so much it felt like "HOME". Can't wait to come back. Best place we've stayed as far as location, view, amenities and not far from our son's home. Coming back in April hope to stay in 1182. Thank you... more for allowing guests to use your condo, Aloha and Mahalo, Tina and Bud Marsh less

Hi Tina and Bud, Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and hoping we can accommodate you in April. Aloha!! - Ray and Elaine
Great condo with plenty of room and beautiful views of the harbor and beyond. Close to all activities and a block or so from Waikiki beach. Walk to restaurants & bars. Decor is beautiful, bed is very comfortable and kitchen is set up well. Cleaners... more could have done a little better job on the floors, sand & dirt. Vacuum in unit, though. We would stay there again and recommend #1182 to friends. less

Fun In the sun
I love staying at the illikai marina when I return home to Hawaii, and I really felt at home in Elaines Condo! The bed was so comfortable the decor was invitng the location is fantastic! Everything I needed was Provided for including spices for cooking,... more and chairs for the beach! I highly recommend this unit ! I know I'll be staying there, again! Don't miss out on the great food at the harbour pub and live entertainment at the Charthhouse! less

Hi Carol, Very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Mahalo, Ray and Elaine
The unit was not cleaned from the prior tenant before we arrived, but this was addressed right away by the property owner (Thanks for the prompt customer service). Took one star off, because my wife wasn't very happy in the beginning due to the mishap.... more However, this condo was in a prime location with beautiful ocean views at a very reasonable price. Make sure you don't leave food outside the fridge as ants make their way through the unit. less

Great views and great location
Very nice, comfortable condo. Exactly as pictured and advertised. Great location with many stores, restaurants, bars, and beaches within a 5 minute walking distance. Beautiful views of Duke Kahamoku Lagoon, the harbor, and the ocean. Watching the sunset on the beach from the balcony was... more amazing. less

Hi Mindy, Very happy to hear that everything was to your liking! Thanks for choosing our accommodation for your stay. Aloha! - Ray and Elaine.
This condo was fantastic! The location was great, right on the edge of Waikiki but still walking distance from Ala Moana. The place was clean and really well stocked with everything you could possibly need. We spent a week here and are definitely going to... more stay here on our next trip! less

Hi Michelle, So happy that you enjoyed your stay! Looking forward to your return to paradise. -Ray and Elaine
Cute place. Very convenient parking and location. The sheets smelled a little musty and the floors could have been cleaned better. Was great for our stay. Didn't know how to operate the AC so it kept knocking off in the middle of the night and... more I had to get up to turn it back on. Would stay here again. Mahalo. less
— Jan, Stayed 08/18/2016
Thanks so much for choosing our condo for your stay. Note that we just installed brand new floors, so there's a chance that there's a bit of residual dust from the construction..we'll double our efforts to ensure our unit is spotless for our next guests. We also had a recent building-wide A/C overhaul. It should be operating perfectly now! - Ray and Elaine
Our family of 4 had a great time staying in your condo. We only stayed a short time, 2 nights and next time we are on Oahu we will absolutely stay with you again. The location is nice for walking to the beach, parks, food,... more shops, honolulu and surrounding areas. We walked and used TheBus. The space is fine if you are planning on being out all day, but for a family of 4 it would be a little small to hang out for any length of time. Thank you, Rob and family less
— Rob, Stayed 07/20/2016
We stayed in this condo while visiting for my sister's wedding. Great location with a beautiful view. This condo had everything you could think of there for you. They had beach towels, plenty of regular towels and linens, beach chairs, even a small cooler and... more beach bag. The bathroom even had extras such as a blow dryer, curling iron, flat iron and some additional shampoos, etc. The bed was by far one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in at a rental. Prime location to walk to restaurants and shopping made easy at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. It's just a short stroll to the lagoon area or the beach. I would most definitely stay here again or recommend to anyone. The communication while booking and even before we got there was superb! less

This is our second stay at the Ilikai Marina and both times have not been disappointed. Our stay in Condo 1182 was everything it was advertised as and with it's great location near everything, made for a wonderful stay. On our final evening we had... more the additional bonus of a fireworks display viewed from our balcony. Hopefully we will be returning for another vacation and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. less

Thanks Peter, for staying with us. Hoping we can help you with your accommodations when you return to the islands! -Ray and Elaine
Wonderful, complete, waterfront condo.
We stayed at this condo for 6 days in April 2016 before we left on a cruise. Words can not truly express how wonderful this condo was for us. It was very convenient to the major highways and we did not have the horrible traffic... more problems we have heard of in Oahu. The marina was right out our window and we loved watching all the activity both there and with the surfers in the waves. We have never stayed in such a well furnished condo. It was like a home away from home and had more than you can imagine - spices and more, every appliance, office supplies, beach chairs and tables, hair dryers, etc. We loved it here and are recommending it to all our friends. less
— Brenda, Stayed 05/03/2016
Didn't Want for Anything
This is an amazingly well stocked condo; best I've had. It's like they thought of everything AND left some nice things from past guests in the liquor cabinet. Thank you! It's really hard to find a nice, well stocked condo for a reasonable price. If... more you're looking, look NO further. I'm a travel agent and a PICKY one at that. I'm used to staying in 4-5* properties. I chose this condo as I was here with family on business and needed the extra space. The king bed AND the pull-out sofa were SO amazingly comfy. Most pull-outs are torture chambers for an adult to sleep on. I switched from the King and slept here 2 nights as it was THAT comfortable and I'm used to Hilton or Heavenly Beds. Super clean all around; no bugs (hard to avoid in Hawaii). No weird smells or chemical cover ups. Really, you'll love it. JUST DO IT! less
— Wendi , Stayed 03/23/2016
Hi Wendi, Thanks so much for your glowing review! Sure glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope you'll look to us when you next visit Oahu. Mahalo, Ray and Elaine
Everything we hoped for and more!
Everything went perfect with the condo rental! Instructions were precise, someone called right back when I had a question, and the condo was clean, comfortable, and everything we were hoping for. It is right in the heart of Waikiki so we were able to walk... more to everything. My wife and I went for a morning run each day and there were lots of paths near the beach and lots of great dining nearby. Also the sunsets from the balcony were fantastic. They also had fireworks on Friday evening which was fun. I'd definitely recommend this condo to anyone considering a stay in Waikiki. less
— Dan, Stayed 03/21/2016
Dan, Thanks so much for providing a review. Very happy that you enjoyed your stay. Hoping you'll think of us when you next return to Oahu! - Ray & Elaine
Good morning, condo was a great set up with the overall space, however, a couple of things we noticed: - one of the lawn chairs was broken - beach umbrella was worse for wear - when we arrived that night about 10:30pm, the condo was... more very stuffy, it would have been nice to have had the air conditioning already running - a few of the fans are broken and taking up valuable space less
— Jane , Stayed 02/23/2016
Hi Jane, Thanks for the heads up on the chairs and umbrella. They've been replaced. Regarding the stuffiness, please note that Waikiki and specifically Ilikai Marina are working to conserve energy and to be green. As such we're being asked to refrain from turning on the AC prior to arrivals. While we apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, we thank our guests for supporting this important initiative. The condo cools quickly once the AC is turned on. Also, the fans aren't broken. You may have plugged them in to switched outlets, and failed to flip the wall switch. Thanks again for your feedback! - Ray and Elaine
nicely furnished & central location
my wife and I spent three nights and had a very nice experience. The furnishings and supplies are excellent. The king bed is quite comfortable and the view is super. Don't expect to be spending a lot of time on the outdoor balcony, it is... more very tiny. But open the patio door and stand back, the view from inside is exceptional. Overlooking the marina can have its drawback with noise as the sound does carry upward to the unit but it did not really pose an issue. The location is excellent for walking the beach, which has a paved walk that extends quite a way. Access to the Waikiki strip, shopping and lots of restaurants is a real plus. The parking garage was convenient if maybe a little confusing. Overall it was a good experience, the owners and their property manager was easy to work with and responsive to some minor items that arose. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to a couple or a small family. less
— Timothy, Stayed 01/18/2016
Hi Timothy, So glad that you and your wife enjoyed staying at our unit! Very much looking forward to your return. Aloha and Mahalo! - Ray and Elaine
Ok for short period
Great location however there are some items needing improvements. When we first arrived I felt the signage needs to be improved for getting to condos. It took a while to figure it out. Once we opened the doors to the condo, it was very humid.... more Perhaps the air was just turned on prior to us getting there but I was concerned it would remain that way. Luckily it was better later that night. After we settled in, I began unpacking and noticed womens underwear in one of the drawers and chips in the couch when I pulled out the bed. I tried to overlook it but was very disheartening. I also prepared coffee one morning and the mug I grabbed was still dirty. The main bed was however wonderful to sleep in and as mentioned location was great. I guess for feedback to make sure the condo is prepped and ready to go. Also, Perhaps the carpet could be replaced to freshen up the space. less
— Ryan, Stayed 01/15/2016
Hi Ryan, Thank you for your review! Please know, we all work very hard to exceed our guest's expectations each and every time. We have an excellent record of condo cleanliness, but are heeding your comments and re-doubling our efforts. Regarding the carpet, you may be pleased to learn that we're having new flooring quoted at this time. Thanks again for choosing our unit for your stay! -Ray and Elaine.
This was a great condo well equipped with everything you need. It made our vacation. We will return! Thanks~the Smiths

Fantastic condo! Conveniently located, well-stocked and beautiful. Great views of the sunset. Highly recommended!
— Robert, Stayed 08/23/2015
Good times were had by all!
My two teenage boys and I stayed at the condo for a week, and I am sure we will be going back. Great base of operations for proximity to all Waikiki destinations. Beaches, restaurants, stores are all within walking distance. The condo itself was very... more comfortable with every convenience. Clean and well stocked. The kitchen had everything we needed. When we decided to rent a car, parking was in the same building. There is a multi-day pass available at the parking kiosk which makes in and out much easier. less

condo on the marina with great ocean views
We rented this 11th floor condo #1182 in conjunction with another one, #1190, from the same agency.. Both were superclean and roomy, great for our extended family and the grand kids. The condos are right above a small-boats marina, with ocean and beach views, on... more the map roughly between Ala Moana Beach Park and Hilton Hawaiian Village, at the quiet end of Waikiki beach. Small balcony off condo, and you can open door for nice breeze or use the air conditioning. Condo is kid-friendly and kitchen is well-equipped.A coin laundry on the 8th floor for guests, pool privileges at adjacent hotel grounds reached by 2nd floor pedestrian bridge. Food is expensive so cooking some meals is a great advantage. There is an ABC minimart across the street, but find a real market for most of your cooking. Car garage is easy in and out. Upon your first exit, pay the garage for the length of your stay to get the best rate ($20 per day when we were there). Not only is the location good if staying on the quieter side, it is also great for taking day trips. Easy to head out from the garage and get to Pearl Harbor or a drive around the rest of the island. I liked that convenience as I like a break from the city. Overall, nice location for Waikiki visitors, especially families like ours who prefer a condo over a hotel room at a very good rate. FYI --the Ala Moana Beach Park is an easy 5 min drive and has a protected swimming area ideal for kids and non-swimmers at it's point, named Magic Island. And, if you head out of town try the beautiful Kailua Beach Park for a whole day in the windward town of Kailua, a 40 min drive on H3 or Hwy 61 Pali Hwy. White sand, gentle turquoise water, free parking, showers and restrooms, and lifeguard. less

Home from Home!!!
We have previously stayed at The Prince - next door as we love the location. This apartment offered the same location (ie VERY convenient) whilst also offering the usual comforts of "home"!! The apartment itself was as described FULLY self-contained there was NOTHING that was... more missing from what we would have had at home! less
— BARRY K O, Stayed 02/26/2015
Very comfortable, great views & excellent location
We were very happy with our short stay. The only negative was we arrived from Australia at 8.00am after 9-1/2 hrs on a plane. We are both over 68 and were very tired & couldn't get into the appartment until 3.00pm.. Next time we would... more like to be able to check in earlier to have a bit of a rest before hitting the Streets. We enjoyed our stay immensely and are planning to come back next year. less

Well stocked Ilikai Marina condo 1182
This was our first trip to Hawaii, as well as our first experience with condo renting. We came for our 30th wedding anniversary and enjoyed the experience. The condo had everything we needed right down to a flat iron for my hair. This condo overlooks... more the marina which was great for watching the sunsets and fireworks. Also close proximity to a good mall, convenience store, grocery store and restaurants. I would suggest checking online maps to get your bearings before coming. The only downsides were: the noise of the city made it difficult to hear the roar of the ocean, we could smell cigarette smoke from the neighbour's apartment when we were out in the hall, and there was no smoke detector within the apartment itself. The wifi worked well for us. less
— Mary_EllenV912, Stayed 10/31/2014
Fabulous, everything we expected and more!
Great place to stay, clean, comfortable, convenient, great view and much nicer than a impersonal hotel room. Thanks Ray and Elaine!
— Freestyle100, Stayed 09/01/2014
Excellent local with great views of the harbor and ocean
This condo is nicely located as it is at the end of Waikiki and not as busy. It is close to shopping, with Walmart, Sam's Club, and the Ala Moana shopping center just minutes away. It's an easy walk to the Ala Moana park where... more you can swim in the protected bay area or walk or jog around the parks paved trail. We walked over to the Hawaiian Hilton for live music in the Tapa room and walked back to the condo along the beach boardwalk. The decor in the condo is pleasant and the bed and sleep sofa are comfortable. To be able to have breakfast overlooking the harbor and ocean each morning was a treat and the sunsets were beautiful. The condo is easy to find with parking under the building at a more reasonable rate than most of the hotels in the area. Many restaurants are with in walking distance of the condo and the Waikiki Trolly system runs all day and night on Alal Moana Blvd. if you want to go into the heart of Waikiki for shopping or entertainment. less
— BootlegBob1983, Stayed 08/06/2014
We had a wonderful stay at the well furnished condo with a very comfortable bed.
The condo had everything we needed. It was well appointed and even had a closet full of things one might need for the beach. It was in a good location and the view was beautiful from 1182. The parking was convenient in the parking garage... more for $20 a day. Since there is work being done on the elevator, occasionally we had to wait a few minutes for it to arrive. The bed was very comfortable after a long day of sightseeing. Might want to think about adding a docking station for iPhone as there wasn't one. Overall, it was a great condo and we would definitely stay here again. less
— Rhondalavon, Stayed 07/31/2014
Comfort and convenience
Our family of 4 stayed in Condo 1182 for a week in July. Second time staying in Ilikai Marina. The location cannot be beat and the unit was great. Plenty of beach chair and towels for the beach or lagoon. Walk to Ala Moana or... more Waikiki or just enjoy the beautiful view from the unit. Bring quarters for the laundry. Grocery shop at Foodland in Ala Moana or Don Quijote on Kaheka. $20 per day parking, pay for the stay upon your first exit. Thank you, we will be back. less
— Ray N, Stayed 07/19/2014
Comfortable, Well-Equipped, Great View: Great Value
We like to prepare some of our meals and have more space than a hotel room typically offers, and this condo accomplishes that very well. It's also equipped just like you'd equip your own beach condo - with beach chairs, umbrellas, mats, beach towels, etc.... more Figure an extra $20 a day for convenient 24 hr. parking in the building. The owners are directly involved and you'll hear from them before and after your stay. They want you to have a great stay. They also have an arrangement with a local person, should you need immediate assistance. The only inconvenience we had was the wifi would let us log-in, but it was extremely slow, and basically unuseable. So we used our own Verizon 3G hotspot. I'm no networking expert, but I believe the wireless router has gone bad. It's operating, but it's old (2008) and was hot to the touch. I've reported that problem to the owners, and I believe they'll address it. If wifi is important to you though, you should confirm with the owners that it has been addressed. My only other comment on the slightly negative side was I thought the bed comforter/bed spread had an odor. Sleeping rooms visited by the general public typically suffer from this, and it's typically my practice to remove the comforter from the bed. I'd stay here again. less
— Kim, Stayed 05/05/2014
Well furnished quiet condo with excellent views of ocean in Waik
We enjoyed our stay in your well equipped and furnished modern Condo. My husband loved being close to the marina where he could see the boats coming and going. It was quiet at night yet close to our favorite restaurant 'Roys'. We really enjoyed our... more nightly walks along the waterfront. Parking under the building was excellent and economical. The ambience in your Condo was wonderful and added to our stay. We usually visit Hawaii most years and will be back to your Condo! Thank you for your efforts in making this a pleasant stay. less

Beautiful view and well furnished while close to heart of Waikiki
We have enjoyed our stay and appreciate the amenities provided here. The condo is well furnished with excellent parking (ask for longer term rate). The view is spectacular while quiet at night. Great walking and excellent restaurants near by.
— CalgaryAnn, Stayed 04/20/2014
Comfortable condo with beautiful view of the sunset.
The ilikai marina condo was very comfortable and had most everything we needed. I specifically wanted a king bed with a separated living room for privacy. The bathroom was big and had two ways to access from the living room and bedroom. My 18 month... more daughter loved roaming around and enjoyed the space. Everything was very clean and well kept. The ala moana mall, Don Qijote grocery store and Walmart were close by. McDonald's, Red Lobster (right underneath our building) and other restaurants were close by. We especially liked the lagoon nearby since we had our daughter practice getting used to the water before taking her to the beach. She loved the beach. The only draw back is that you would have drive out to the Waikiki beach area since you are at the far end of the main Waikiki strip. We had a drainage problem in the bathtub, but I called alice and she sent a plumber out the same day and he fixed it in minutes. It was great service. The Internet service was slow or was not working at times, but we had data service on our phones so it was not too bad. Overall we had a great time and would stay here again. less

We've stayed at three different condos in the Ilikai Marina and 1182 was far and away the best one! It had everything we needed and more! The unit is tastefully decorated and nicely furnished! The aC works quietly and well...the bed was comfy. Aloha Condos... more are very professional and hassle free. Hopefully the next time we stop in Oahu this condo will be available! less
— Boyuk, Stayed 06/08/2013
A great getaway in downtown Honolulu!!
We loved our stay at the marina. It was very central to all thoroughfares. The views from the condo are spectacular day and night. The bed was very comfortable and the condo had everything that we needed. We wish that we spent more time in... more the immediate area because there were two beaches and water access right there at the marina and then at Moana Loa Park. Highly recommend Pearl Harbor but plan on starting early (0800) and spending the whole day. We got there at 0900 and were rushed through the aviation Museum before it closed. Lots of great hiking but bring lots of water - uphill hking is thirsty work. Koko Crater is 1000 stairs uphill - looked great but did not attempt! Diamond Head was spectacular as well as a psrk that was across from Koko Crater. Loved driving around the North Shore and the shrimp "mobiles"! We can't wait to get back! less

My wife and I stayed at Ilikai Marina Condo 1182 for five nights. We found the unit immaculately clean and supplied with everything that we needed. The location is perfect, being close to the alamoana Centre and a short walk to the beach. If we... more return to Hawaii, we will try for this condo again. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 05/24/2013
We have now been to Oahu 4 times but had never stayed at this part of Waikiki before. We chose this condo building because we liked the fact that you look out at a marina and then out to the ocean. No buildings blocking your... more view to get the ocean view we really wanted. The pictures on the website are very accurate and we really enjoyed staying here. Loved having the comfy King size bed and the bathroom is nicely updated and a good size with a nice big counter and new bath towels too! The only thing that would make this even better is some updating in the kitchen. It is very functional but could be really nice with some new things done to it. It was nice to be at this end of Waikiki to see "new" sights and had no idea we would be so close to ala Moana Mall. Also had great food and drinks in the pub on the bottom floor. We would definitely stay here again and love Hawaii!! less
— Shannon & Bruce, Stayed 05/08/2013
Exactly as represented on site!
Our sixth visit to Ilikai Marina and all just as expected. Brilliant views, comfortable, well appointed apartment in a fantastic position. The infrastructure of local shops, restaurants etc has increased over the years and we realised at the end of two weeks we only went... more into Waikiki once over the whole vacation. The view is so fantastic it's difficult to get out of the apartment. Will be coming back in 2014! less

The condo was very clean and well decorated. We where celebrating our 25 wedding anniversary while following our daughters college softball team.

Our Happy O'ahu Home away From Home
This is the fourth year in a row that we have stayed in Unit 1182 at the Ilikai Marina Condos, and it just keeps getting better and better. The condo had been re-painted since our visit in February 2012 and looked quite refreshed. Every year,... more a peek into the closets reveals additional items to use at the beach or take along on day trips around the island, like beach chairs, boogie boards, and a mini-ice chest. This condo is spotless, very attractively furnished, and the kitchen is well stocked with everything we have needed for meal preparations. The panoramic view out the windows and off the lanai is breath-taking. We were very happy and content during our 10 day stay in what has become our home-away-from-home on O'ahu. The location of the Ilikai Marina Condos perfectly suits our needs. For starters, it is an easy drive or taxi ride to and from the airport. We prefer the quieter location of this condo complex compared to the more centrally located Waikiki hotels. The nearby ala Moana Park and Duke Kahanamoku beaches are our favorites, wide and less crowded most of the time. It is walkable to central Waikiki and down to Kapi'olani Park, by Diamond Head. We have chosen to book with aloha Condos for 8 visits since 2007 and have found the company and the condos excellent. Chuck is always helpful during the booking process, and the local contact, Alice, has been very friendly and responsive whenever we have a question. Mahalo aloha Condos/Ray and Elaine, and we already look forward to our 2014 holiday in 1182. less

beyond our expectation, we like it very much!
The condo is very comfortable. The owners and manager are very thoughtful to provide beach chairs and mats for us to enjoy relaxing holidays on the beach. The oceanview is wonderful and location is very convenient to both shopping centers and Waikiki beach. We will... more be happy to stay there for the next trip to Honolulu. less

Chuck's Condo was exactly what we were looking for...and found. It was ideally located and equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable, self contained holiday.

Thanks Chuck and we will definitely book again on our next stop over in Hawaii. less

Great Place to Stay
Aloha Condos have a very efficient and effective booking system and I found Chuck and the team excellent to deal with. We had a small problem at check in because of last minute booking changes but the problem was resolved immediately and with out question... more (thanks Chuck & Alice). The property is very pleasant has a great view and is well equipped. The location is great being very near ala Moana shopping, the beach, food and rental cars. This place was a great base for a very enjoyable holiday. less

The only thing that could have been better was that the internet connection was a tiny bit slow. But honestly, if you... more are in Hawaii-that should be the last thing on your "to-do" list. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend the condo to others. less
— P. Thomas, Stayed 12/17/2012
Location & view great!
Condo 1182 at Ilikai Marina was very comfortable for the two of us. The fans were an added bonus and the bed very comfortable. However, bed linens were stained and frayed. Only one hand towel was provided in the bathroom and none in the kitchen.... more We will definately consider this condo should we visit Oahu again. Thanks. less

Home away from home.
It was our first time to Hawaii for our family of four. Having two boys under 5 years concerned me as most hotel rooms are tiny and by evening my active boys would go stir crazy. However, Condo 1182 had everything we needed during the... more day and the evening. The room was so spacious,warm and well equipped. I was most impressed with the cupboard filled sandtoys, boogie boards, sand mats and stroller. The boys thoroughly enjoyed watching videos after dinner every night as the dvd collection was great. My husband too enjoyed sitting on the balcony every morning, watching the boats and the divine ocean. I loved the easy walk to alamoana mall for shopping. We were impressed that there was no queue to get into the lift which is common with the bigger hotels in Waikiki that we visited. The laundry facilities were very handy. Additionally, it was helpfully to grab a taxi from straight across the street from the Modern Hotel. We were so happy to have stayed in Condo 1182. My 3 year old still asks when we will be returing to our 'Home' in Hawaii. less

Elena, Mahalo, for taking the time to publish a review! We’re so pleased that you found our condo to your liking, especially after such a long flight from Australia. Hope to see you again soon! All the best, Ray & Elaine. Owners
Relaxing and comfort
In the beginning reading some of the reviews we some what had mixed emotions on what to expect. All we can say is that some of the reviews came close but we feel that they did not capture the great place and comfort of this... more condo. The bed was one of the best we ever slept in. The view is great and the close proximity to everything is convient. We have traveled to europe and many other places and this stay wea one of the best. less

Fabulous Views...Beautifully furnished
Truly a lovely place to stay...close to restaurants, ala moana shopping centre and some great swimming beaches. We cannot fault this place if you are willing to be away from the rush of waikiki and yet be within a walk of the main hub. The... more only problems we encountered were the parking which we were told had a monthly rate. This rate is not allowed any more and it will cost you $20 per day to park...the complex does not have access to the ilikai pool as we read in one review so the beaches are your only swimming choice. We certainly saw both these issues as minor compared to the trouble the owners and booking people went to to make sure we had a great time...we were absolutely delighted with the accommodation provided. less
— Jeff, Stayed 07/11/2012
Hi Jeff, Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review. Sure glad you enjoyed your stay! The access to the adjacent Ilikai Hotel pool was withdrawn several years ago when it changed ownership. I'm actually surprised you found a review suggesting access (we haven't had access since buying the property). The change in parking fee must be very recent (we were there a month or two ago, and were charged I believe something around $15/night). We'll look into it. Thanks again for your kind review! - Ray and Elaine
Great condo for a great rate
This condo was wonderfully decorated with a Hawaiian theme, it sure beats staying in a hotel. The view from our lanai was incredible. The location was great with Ala Moana Beach park and Ala Moana Shopping Center in walking distance. If this condo is available... more I would not hesitate to book it. If you do stay here you need to know when booking excursions they do not pick you up at the Ilikai Marina but pick you up at the Ilikai Hotel which is right next door. The Sanders family less

A 5 star stay in Paradise
Travel for more than 30 hours and a 12 hour time difference as we walked into 1182 and as we opened the door every bit of tiredness disappeared. So much thought, the smallest details created something special. We were "In Hawaii" Special thanks to Chuck... more who was fantastic in pre planning/booking. Professional but friendly quick and helpful replies. That dining table that view, a quick check of the well equipped kitchen and this was where we would dine every night. Lots of Supermarkets for shopping as you tour the island. Walmart only a short drive away too. Excellent amount of storage space, quality towels. Books, cards, Games, videos, all beach equipment, towels, chairs, cooler, boards. The essential internet connection free . Bed as heaven. Wonderfully comfortable bed and quality bed linen. On site parking a huge benefit, necessary and reasonably priced by comparison. Malls, restaurants, Hilton Lagoon, Ala Moana beach all nearby What was much appreciated was the peace and quiet at night. The apartment was not available for our entire stay and so we moved for 3 days to a 4 star at Waikiki. How we missed 1182. A higher price for parking and one anonymous style room none of the conveniences. This was a once in a life time holiday but if ever we return to Honolulu there is not the slightest doubt 1182 would be the only place we would want to stay less
— Barry, Stayed 05/13/2012
Hi Barry, Thank you for your review! We’re so happy to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay, and that you were able to re-charge your batteries after such a long flight. Looking forward to your next visit! - Ray and Elaine
Our party rented both 1182 and 1190 for the week. My wife and I stayed in 1182. Except for cockroaches, which I totally understand are hard to control in the tropics, it was great. The good parts: the location was fabulous, the view is wonderful,... more the wireless, the TV, the stereo system that utilized my iPhone, the bed, the shower - all were really good. We refrained from cooking there and we were very careful not to leave any food wrappers or anything else that might attract bugs, but still almost every time we turned on the lights in the kitchen, they were there. Unfortunately, it really affected our stay. The good news is that unit 1190 was bug free, so we cooked and ate our meals there with our other family members. The location is right between Waikiki Beach and ala Moana Beach, only 4 blocks from a major shopping center (Ala Moana Center), almost next door to the Hilton Hawaiian Village, which has great restaurants and walking areas and has a fabulous beach area. It's a perfect location to stay for both beach use as well as touring the island. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 04/25/2012
Hi Joe, Thanks so much for your kind words. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We're sorry to hear that you were very inconvenienced by the pesky bugs. In following up with property management, apparently the exterminators were not provided access to our unit during their last treatment, and as such were unable to perform their normal maintenance. We have since ensured that the treatments are back on their normal schedule. Thanks again! - Ray and Elaine
Wonderful Home away From Home
This is the third year that we have stayed 9 days at the Ilikai Marina Condo 1182. As before, we found the condo to be spotless, comfortable, and very well equipped. This year, we were delighted to discover boogie boards in the closet, which are... more perfect for the adjacent lagoon or the shallow swimming area at near-by ala Moana Park. We particularly like the location, which is in the quiet end of Waikiki, and an easy walk to shopping at ala Moana Center and a good variety of restaurants. The condo has a phenomenal, panoramic view out over the ala Wai Yacht Harbor and the ocean. The intimate lanai is a perfect spot from which to watch fiery sunsets and the Friday night fireworks. less
— Gary and Debra, Stayed 03/03/2012
Our recent stay in the condo was great! Great view of the harbor, unit was exceptionally clean and stocked with all the beach life amenities. Within close walking distance to all the major hotels, restaurants, and beachwalk but at the same time a quiet refuge... more away from the crowds! less

Hi Annie, Glad that you enjoyed your stay! Come back soon. Aloha – Ray and Elaine
We stayed about two weeks in this condo and everything about it was great: the view of the marina and beach from each room, the Hawaiian style decorations and furniture, the well equiped kitchen. The location is good, bus transportation is nearby and Waikiki beach... more and downtown are in walking distance. There are many excellent restaurants to choose from. The information and pictures we received before making a booking were informative and precise. We would strongly recommend this rental to any friend. less

Dear S. Family, Thanks for joining us from Canada! Glad your stay was enjoyable. Hope to see you again soon! - Ray and Elaine (owners)
Absolutely amazing accomodations
I couldn't have asked for more from this condo rental. Location was central to everything ...shops, beach, stores!! It had everything within the unit from linens to beach chairs. This was my second trip to Waikiki and i wish i would have researched the condo... more rental option last time instead of a hotel room. If I ever come back to the island the first place I will look is Unit 1182 at the Ilikai Marina. Thank you for everything less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 12/12/2011
Loved the View
What a great location. Property had everything we needed, even a stroller when your 4 year old gets to tired to walk. Well stocked with beach items also. The Hilton Lagoon was a quick 3 minute walk and 3 restraurants are below and attached to... more the building. Quiet, great views and beautiful sunsets.. Will definitely stay here again. less

Marina View and Stunning Sunsets!
Strategically situated close to the beautiful ala Moana Beach and close to Waikiki/Diamond Head, this condo offers a lovely marina view and Honolulu skyline.
— Marina View and Stunning Sunsets!, Stayed 09/01/2011
Loved the location! Great views of the marina and surfers, ala moana beach park to the right, Hilton lagoon and waikiki beaches to the left. Fireworks were amazing to see from the lanai. Its close enough to the main street and buses etc but far... more enough away that you don't notice any noise (except maybe from the pub down below). The beaches, tourist shops, grocery stores (Foodland) are all within walking distances so everything is close by. The condo was very tastefully and comfortably furnished. As in other reports, everything is nicely updated with the exception of the kitchen. Previous guests hadn't done the greatest job on washing the glassware and pans before putting them in the cupboards and we did run into the usual tropical welcoming party (i.e. cockroaches) on a number of ocassions. Except for the last 2 items, overall, we would say that its a very nice condo and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 08/14/2011
Hi Bea, Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for the heads up - we're aware that the building just completed their regular treatment for pests (standard procedure for the tropics). Apparently they're finishing it off. We'll have the cleaning service double their efforts to make sure everything is spic & span! Ray and Elaine, Owners, Ilikai Marina Condo 1182
Comfortable with a nice ocean view
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at unit 1182. The main bed is very comfy (I am picky on mattress). And the view from the tiny lanai is great, especially at the night of July 4th to watch the fireworks! My kids just love the ocean... more view and they thought it is the very best of the studio. We did use the kitchen. It is functional and practical but I have to say that it needs an update. Becareful when you open the cabinate doors, the metal thing they add on to help you open it almost hurt my fingers. less
— First Timer Su, Stayed 07/13/2011
Dear Su, Thanks for your kind words - glad you enjoyed the fantastic view of the fireworks from our lanai! We agree that although our kitchen is clean, well maintained, and well equipped, that as with all properties eventually they all can benefit from some 'freshening up'. We've remodeled the rest of the condo, and the kitchen is the last remaining phase. You may be interested to know that we started the project a couple of months ago, by considering design options, and engaging contractors. We're now in negotiations, and will be assessing the best time to undertake the project. Stay tuned ~ perhaps if you stay here again, we'll have a fresh new kitchen for your stay! - Ray and Elaine (owners) Ilikai Marina 1182
We have been travelling to Hawaii for 30 years and this has been the best accommodation yet. We have stayed at Ilikai Marina before but first time in condo 1182 and we were more than happy. Position and apartment amenities are great. The view is... more the best in Honolulu and one you would probably pay $500+ for at a hotel.Friday night fireworks are brilliant from the balcony whilst sipping a pina colada. When we had a problem with Wi Fi the owners and local agents were onto it straight away (with delivery of some wine as way of apology also).The apartment is exactly as in the photos. We will definitely be comong back to Condo 1182 less

Robyn & John, Thanks so much for your kind review. Very glad that you enjoyed your stay. We'd like to once again apologize for the internet inconvenience. Please know that Hawaiian Telecom came out just after you left and repaired faulty wiring in the building (it wasn't an issue in our unit). I understand that the problem is now well resolved. Aloha! Ray and Elaine. Owners, Ilikai Marina 1182
Everything that you need
Ilikai Marina 1182 was first rate - from making reservations, communication about the condo, check-in, to the condo itself. The condo is in a great location - an easy walk to everything including Waikiki Beach and the mall where there is a Foodland. We asked... more the parking attendant about a monthly rate and were able to buy a 1/2 month pass (last 2 weeks of the month) - a significantly better rate than daily. Inside the condo there is everything that you need - a complete kitchen, all sorts of everyday items - things you wouldn't think of bringing but are at a loss if you didn't have them - it's very thoughtfully supplied. The bed & sofa bed were very comfortable. The bathroom was just as shown in the pictures - updated and clean (as is the rest of the condo). The laundry on the 8th floor was convenient - but you might want to get there earlier in the day. The layout and furniture of the condo was comfortable. We would definitely recommend Ilikai Marina 1182 to friends, family, and colleagues who are planning a trip to Oahu. Thank you for making our stay wonderful and relaxing - hassle-free. Thanks. less

Perfect Location for a Memorable Holiday
We were very pleased with our recent stay in Unit 1182, at the Ilikai Marina Condos. The condo is beautifully furnished and is very well equipped to make it a perfect home-away-from home while enjoying O'ahu. Besides being very clean and comfortable, this condo also... more has a magnificent view out over the ocean and near-by beaches. The location couldn't be better. It is at the quiet end of Waikiki, not too far from the airport, and within a few minutes walking to two wonderful beach areas. Ala Moana Center is also within walking distance. The lanai provides the perfect spot from which to watch the Friday night fireworks out over the lagoon. We have stayed in properties managed by aloha Condos for the past five years, and have found Chuck and Mary very responsive and easy to work with. We look forward to staying in Unit 1182 during our 2012 Holiday in Paradise. less
— DeeMacDee, Stayed 03/04/2011
What a great place to stay!
Not only was the condo as advertised, there were little surprises we appreciated. For instance, in the hall closet were beach chairs, mats and a cooler which we made liberal use of. The condo is beautifully finished in Hawaiian style. We docked our iPod in... more the stereo system, and enjoyed our playlists. The view over the marina was a fascinating. Not only were we perfectly positioned to see some beautiful sunsets, but we could watch the boats come and go in the marina. The beautifully maintained condo quickly became our home away from home. We would go back without any hesitations. less
— Cap'n Bill, Stayed 02/23/2011
We stayed at this cond the week of 1/16/11. Everything was as presented on the website. The condo is in a great location. Easy to hop on trolleys or bus pickup. Several great restaurants right below the building and the beach only a 10 minute... more walk. It was clean, Chuck and Mary will very responsivle to our requests. less

Great Value on Waikiki
After searching extensively online, I was really impressed with this particular condo, based on reviews by previous renters and by the photos of the condo online. Our arrival went smoothly thanks to the excellent instructions we were given via email. The view from the balcony... more was beautiful, overlooked the marina with a great view of the ocean, and the Hilton lagoon. We really enjoyed the fireworks (at the Hilton lagoon) which are set off every Friday night and could watch them from the balcony. The unit was very clean, beautifully furnished with a tropical theme, and was well supplied with everything we needed in the kitchen and bathroom. We let our friends have the bedroom and they said the bed was very comfortable. My wife and I slept on the sofa bed in the living room. It was relatively comfortable, considering no sofa bed is as good as a regular bed. The location was close to bus stops, shopping (the ala Moana Center was just a short walk away), and both the Waikiki beach and the ala Moana beach were just a very short walk away. Considering how expensive so many of the other accommodations are in the Waikiki area, we were thrilled with the location and the cost, as well as the quality of the condo. We would definitely consider staying there again if we go back to Honolulu. less

Excellent Stay from Beginning to End
My soon to be wife and I were planning our honeymoon and wanted to stay on Oahu, but looking for a place that is more mellow and away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. We found the Ilikai Marina and it was perfect! We... more contacted Chuck through the aloha Condo website and he was great. Answered all my questions through email within a day. We reserved the place and Chuck sent the directions and instructions on parking and everything else we needed prior to the trip. We got the condo and it was absolutely wonderful. Very clean and everything was great. I was surprised it was stocked already with some things like paper towels and ice trays...little things like that made it a nice touch. The bed was super comfortable and everything was so relaxing and perfect, I couldn't have been more happier! I will be staying her again when I return to the island. Great price for a great place. Thank you Chuck for making this part of our honeymoon so easy and enjoyable! less
— RK, Stayed 11/21/2010
The condo was extemely comfortable. The view from the lanai of the sunsets every night was breathtaking. To look out and see the sailboats just added to the calmness of the vacation. The location was convenient for traveling and the fireworks on Friday evening was... more an added bonus. less

Illikai Marina 1182
The condo looks just like the photos advertised. It's very clean. Instructions for check-in were easy. The view off the balcony to the marina and surrounding beach area was beautiful. Watching surfers was very relaxing. Two complaints: First complaint I have is that the unit... more smelled like curry the entire stay. Every time you walked in the door, the smell hit you. We tried airing by opening the sliding glass door the entire time we were in the unit, but that didn't help. The other complaint is that the advertising for a thicker sofa mattress is of no value. It was still uncomfortable less
— Craig, Stayed 09/04/2010
Dear Craig, Many thanks for your comments. Please note that our housecleaner has confirmed that there were no smells prior to your stay, or afterwards. They are very thorough with their cleaning, and they scour the entire kitchen, including stove and hood prior to each arrival. We believe the smell that you mentioned may have been the unfortunate, temporary bi-product of a neighboring cook at the time. We have not received similar complaints before. Regarding the sofa bed, we're sorry that it was uncomfortable for you. While we cannot expect a sofa bed to be as comfortable as our luxury pillow-top in the bedroom, we chose and purchased the finest sofa bed available on the island. It is far thicker and more comfortable than other less expensive offerings. Again, we have only received compliments from other renters - never a complaint. Ray and Elaine. Owners, Ilikai Marina 1182
Would recommend to friends
Lovely location with good resturants downstairs. Condo is clean and well equipped. Internet is fast and free with WiFi Furnature is a little old fashioned though comfortable and well looked after
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 08/05/2010
Thank you for your response, notlim2. Please note that all of our furniture with the exception of the end tables are less than two years old; we completely refurnished recently with high end, Hawaiian style furniture.....so although the furniture style is modern Hawaiian/Wicker, to call it 'old fashioned' is a bit of a misnomer. Ray and Elaine Blasing Owners, Ilikai Marina Condo 1182
I came out here for Military work stayed @ the Condo for the entire visit. The condo and the view were awesome. Parking was very simple and it was easy to pay up front.
— Lewis Spencer, Stayed 06/10/2010
The room and location were nice. This is the first time I stayed in a Condo and I enjoyed the experience. I liked not worrying about when housekeeping needed to get in to the room. I enjoyed having the kitchen especially for breakfast. we loved... more sitting out on the balcony feeling the wonderful breeze in the morinings as well as in the evenings.From there you are on Waikiki beach and have access to all the surfing and shopping within a few minutes walk. I would definately recommend a stay at this Condo! less

Welcome to Paradise
In late February, we stayed a week in unit 1182 at the Ilikai Marina Condos. We enjoyed a gorgeous view over the Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, Ala Moana Beach Park, and the Pacific Ocean. The condo is located on the quiet end of the Waikiki... more area, but within walking distance to the Ala Moana Shopping Center and the central part of Waikiki. There are also several lovely, sandy beaches to choose from, which are a few minutes walk away form the condo. Unit 1182 is comfortable and very well equipped and furnished. The kitchen contained everything we needed when we prepared meals, enjoying our own ocean-view dining area and lanai. There was a slight problem with a leaky pipe when we arrived, but it was taken care of very quickly by the Aloha Condos team. The condo building watchmen were also very helpful when we had questions. We had a great time while staying in 1182 and would definitely book this condo again for a future holiday. less
— Gary and Debra, Stayed 03/05/2010
near perfect spot at the Ilikai Marina
We enjoyed staying in this well kept and tastefully furnished condo in a near perfect location. We particularly enjoyed the harbor and sunset view, the Friday night fireworks and the easy access to Honolulu and Waikiki. The Ilikai Marina is a 5 minute walk along... more the harbor to the beach at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the rest of Waikiki beach. Nice for both walking and swimming. Our only wish for a relatively long stay would be some more self-help equipment for cleaning. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 01/27/2010
My sister and I really enjoyed this condo. I didn't get to see fireworks on the 4th of July, so I was elated when I got to see the weekly summer fireworks at the Hilton while standing out on the balcony of the condo! The... more location is awesome. I would go running at Ala Moana Park each morning. The unit was clean and the both the king bed and the foldout sleeper sofa were very comfortable. Mahalo! less

Beautiful presented magnificent views
The condo was just as shown on the website. Amazing views, neat and tidy. We had a great stay. A recommendation is maybe a guide/guest book in the room. We thankyou for the early checkin after a long flight. One thing I have to mention... more is that upon arrival the bed sheets had big brown dirt marks on them, they were clean but it looked like they were stained during washing. We used the spare set provided. Everything else was perfect! less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 05/19/2009
Thanks very much tk1, for your comments! Regarding the stained sheets, we're very sorry for your inconvenience. We've since retired one set of sheets, purchased another, and are paying strict attention to their care and cleaning. We've also placed a guest book in the condo - thanks for the great recommendation! - Ray and Elaine
Worth every penny
This condo has it all. Well maintained, well stocked, well furnished, and well suited for a family of 4. We really appreciated all the accommodations and amenities. The kitchen, utensils, appliances, plumbing, carpet, and furniture were all in top shape. You can't imagine how relaxing... more a vacation can be when you don't have to worry about household things going wrong. The location is excellent. Walking distance to Ala Moana shopping center and convenient route to bypass the heart of Waikiki. And don't miss the Friday night fireworks over at the lagoon. Also, very important, the internet worked! What a relief to be able to "google" our itinerary, finish up some overdue work, and complete a "last minute emergency" online exam. The only negative was the proximity to Yacht Harbor Towers (which was under renovation). It was rather noisy during the day, but, if you're out during the day, as you should be while on vacation, the construction was not a problem. We will definitely stay here again. Mahalo and Aloha! less

Took the grandkids with us. Great location and view. Beautiful sunsets every night. Place was comfortable enough for 2 adults and 2 young teens. It was clean and well equipped with things we might need to eat in once in a while.
— Beach lovers, Stayed 04/23/2009
Our first visit back in 10 years. This apt. was well furnished - new furniture and bed very comfortable. Kitchen was adequate for our needs since we ate out most of the time. Bathroom needs to be updated - especially the shower doors. Lovely view... more from the patio and we found the bldg to be well looked after with 24 hour security. I did read that someone had a problem with noise from the restaurant below, however although it was busy the whole time we were there we were never once disturbed by noise from the restaurant. I would not hesitate to recommend this apt. to other visitors. less
— Janet, Stayed 04/16/2009
Janet, many thanks for your comments! Your suggestion that we update the bathroom was spot-on. We're happy to announce that we've recently completed our major bathroom remodel. We've expanded the room, and have completely renovated it with top end materials. It now has beautiful tiling and slab granite throughout, a new cherrywood vanity with expanded counter space, as well as modern fixtures and improved lighting. Look for updated pictures and a revised floor plan on our website in early 2010. We're really excited about this renovation, and are confident that our guests will really enjoy their stay, now more than ever. Thanks again! - Ray and Elaine
Fabulous, clean and well appointed. What a view!
Just as the online pictures promised: a spacious, well-appointed and nicely decorated unit with a fabulous view of the Yacht Harbor and Magic Island. Our 3-yo daughter loved the pull-out bed and we enjoyed being able to retreat to the bedroom. The bed was luxurious... more and fresh. We can't recall the last time we slept so well. Although there is nightlife along the marina, the unit is high up enough so it is quiet. The bathroom had plenty of towels and the housekeeping crew does a great job. There are even spare towels and a couple of folding chairs for the beach. There are laundry facilities on site. The kitchen has everything and there is enough space to make pretty good meals and enjoy them. The dishes and utensils were good quality and the appliances worked well. The unit has free wireless Internet and it was not hard to set up: there is a cheat sheet that has all of the log-in info. The building is located near the HHV lagoon (renovated in 2008) and it was a short walk to the lagoon and the adjoining beach. We were in the water every day and our 3-yo could walk each way. The Chart House, located off the lobby, has nice atmosphere and great food and service. There is a casual pizza place around the corner that has a friendly bar. There are several other dining options within a block of the building. If you are renting a car, there is convenient covered parking in the building. You can sign up for a monthly pass at the booth if you are staying more than 10 days (cheaper that way and no tickets to lose). We'll be back. What a find this was. less

Too much , to little
We were told there was a pool.......Not! There was too much kitchen for us. All we needed was a coffee pot, microwave, and fridge. The beach chairs were heavy as lead and as soon as we got to the Hale Koa beach we rented chaise... more lounges, umbrella, ice bucket with water. And still had to lug the heavy chairs back to the car. The manager told us there had not been a pool access for two years. I believe part of what we paid was for access to a pool. Cooking smells permeated the hall. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in. The other furniture was some of the most uncomfortable we've ever tried to relax on. No, we would not stay in 1182 again or recommend it to anyone. It was overpriced for what we had. less
— jjellison, Stayed 04/03/2009
Dear Mr and Mrs Jellison, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay. Please know that we've recently upgraded our condo with a beautiful new sleeper sofa, which has a very comfortable (and extra thick) queen size mattress. We've also upgraded our kitchen supplies, and installed a living room stereo with iPod capability. New lightweight beach chairs will arrive within a week, to replace the older, heavier chairs.

This was just the right size condo for our 2 parent 2 kid family. The location was great, with a terrific view of the marina and all the nearby watersports. Easy access to transportation and we also rented a car for longer day trips. Parking... more is very convenient. The restaurant in the downstairs was a little noisy for light sleepers on Friday night before we left on Saturday. The kitchen is well-stocked and laundry was easily accessible throughout the week. less

Great Location and Comfort
We found the Illikai Marina Appartment suited our vacation needs very well. It was convenient to the Major Shopping Centre, close to Waikiki Beach activities, and promenade and tour pickups were right outside. The unit, while compact, was well equipped and comfortable, with great views... more and convenient wireless internet access. We would reccommend it for small families on a budget and first time visitors to Oahu in particular. Brian & Lyndall, Australia less
