Ilikai Marina 786
1 Bedroom Oceanfront Condo
One of the best values for an oceanfront condo in Waikiki. Close to great Honolulu activities and a short walk across the Ala Wai Canal for quick access to Ala Moana Beach Park and Shopping Center. Faces directly west for sunset views year round... more Minutes from Waikiki Beach & Ala Moana Beach Park less ↑

Adequate, at best
The accommodations were adequate, at best. The condo is seriously in need of some TLC. Simple things need to be addressed such as the noisy air conditioner, the fridge that cannot be adjusted, the irregular shower pressure and in general the tired interior. We felt... more the “terrace” or lanai was oversold as it was incredibly small and potentially unsafe for more than one person. The location was perfect but again we feel these accommodations are in need of some basic attention. less
— Debbie, Stayed 12/27/2019
Debbie Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you were not fully satisfied with your stay. The air conditioning is centralized but I will pass on your comment about the noise to the building manager. Please be assured the lanai is safe but as you said small. Again, thank you for your feedback. Owner
One of the lightbulbs in the bathroom was burned out. The ceiling fan over the table wobbled and made considerable noise.
— Alana, Stayed 12/16/2019
We enjoyed our stay, Mahalo!
We loved the unit and it was everything we expected it would be! We will definitely rent again as I will be back in June.

Our Honolulu Visit Oct 12-19 2019
We enjoyed the room itself at the Ilikai Marina condo, it had every amenity you could have wanted, was clean and close to everything in Waikiki. What I didn't care for was hearing the noise from the restaurant/bar below all hours of the night and... more the dirty marina water that we looked out at from our balcony. The building is not in the best part of Waikiki but we also had the pleasure of traveling to all the beaches up on the North and South shores and on the other side of Oahu, which were much more beautiful than Waikiki beaches. Thank you for your hospitality! less

Great place to stay
We enjoyed our recent stay in Ilikai #786. We were there for 5 nights. It was a perfect spot to be able to go out and see the sights in Waikiki. The condo had all the items we needed and more: beach towels, dishes/cookware in... more the kitchen, beach chairs. The lanai, while tiny, worked out for morning coffee and evening sunset viewing. It's also the perfect place to watch the Friday evening fireworks! Thank you for the great stay, we'd stay there again & recommend it. less

Good place to stat
Excellent location and a very nice place to stay right on water with great ocean views. Good facilities and a little wear and tear noticeable but still a very comfortable and spacious stay. You will not be disappointed!
— Peter, Stayed 08/30/2019
This unit had a great view. There was a smell coming off the marina. most of the other items are in serious need of updating. Pillows very old in bed. I was expecting more. Being right at the marina and walking distance to most everything... more are strong pluses. less

Ilikai Maina Condo 786
Loved staying at the Ilikai was a great location and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay there again.

Memorial Day Weekend 2019
This was a great location with a beautiful view! The condo had everything as advertised and was walking distance to Waikiki or Ala Moana Center. Would definitely stay again in the future.
— Peter, Stayed 06/04/2019
We enjoyed our stay at this condo! It had everything we needed and more than expected (beach towels, beach chairs, ice chest, boogie boards, etc.). Location was perfect being walking distance to the hub of the city. The tiny lanai barely holds 2 chairs but... more we made it work and had no complaints as we were able to watch the boats in the marina, the fireworks and the ocean from our condo unit. The TV never did work for us (came on but no local stations) and the one in the bedroom was sitting on the floor. Of course we didn't come to watch TV but had a couple of times that we wanted to lounge and watch something before bed. Not a big enough deal to warrant a complaint. We would stay here again! less
— Steve, Stayed 05/22/2019
Excellent Views, Perfect Location
We had an amazing stay in this condo for 3 nights. It was very clean and had every amenity we needed. We used the beach chairs, towels and umbrella almost every day. You can see Friday night fireworks from the balcony which was a great... more bonus. It was neat to watch the boats coming and going. The only complaint I would have is the noise from the bar on the ground floor did wake me up every night, but we were so exhausted every day from our exploring that I was able to fall back asleep easily. We did eat there one night and had their pizza. It was excellent! We rented a car because we were spending the rest of our vacation on the north shore so we parked in the parking garage in the building. $23 a day which was nice to come and go as we pleased. Thanks so much to the owner for sharing their home. We would absolutely stay here again! less
— John, Stayed 05/11/2019
We enjoyed our stay very, very much, we wish we would have had a few more days. The condo was very well maintained, clean and had everything we needed. It was centrally located so we could access shopping, restaurants etc. We would definitely stay here... more again. less

Fun Fun Fun
We were here from March 1 to 10th, It was our 3rd time stayed here at unit 786. Like always we had great time!!!!!!!! Beautiful location and has everything you need

Ilikai Marina, Condo 786
We had good time here. The room is spacious and with good view. Alice, the contact we were given for any issue, was very responsive and pleasant. There are few things we would like to share to improve future guest's stay experience: - The oven's... more bake feature was not always working, it would turn off by itself before the set time and its baking coil was not on consistently. We ended up just using broil feature. - The fridge was cleaned but with very strong pinesol smell. Any food we left in fridge would absorb pinesol smell. - The main kitchen light switch was not consistently working. Sometimes it would turn on after few minutes delay after being switched on. Thank you! less
— Darlene, Stayed 01/11/2019
Great price - AMAZING View
First time using Home Away. I was very nervous, but Shahin was great! Condo was spotless. When first opened the door it smelled like it was just cleaned. Kitchen has everything you need to make a meal. The mattress is on the harder side, but... more my husband and I found the bed comfortable. A/C works great, gets cold really fast. I didn’t have an issue with the balcony door, didn’t find it hard to open or close. And didn’t have trouble with street noise. The condo had extra things that came in handy like, coolers, stroller, beach toys, and a pack and play that we used as crib for our baby. Let’s talk about the view, the view, oh my the view! My family and I loved looking out and watching all the sail boats. I’d recommend it just for the view! But the condo really was great. The price and service was great! Would stay here again. less
— Marina, Stayed 11/01/2018
Luxury view at affordable rate
The best things about Ilikai Marina 786 1. Total, 100% ocean view. Most Waikiki accommodations claim to have an ocean or beach view, but they are often obstructed by neighboring high rises or seen through a tunnel of concrete buildings. Here, you can enjoy your... more morning coffee watching rainbows, yachts, and fishing boats from the world's tiniest lanai. 2. Two televisions. When you tire of the ocean view you can choose between televisions in either the living room or the bedroom. More tech-savvy guests can take better advantage of that duplication than I. 3. Location. A short walk in the Diamond Head direction brings you into the heart of Waikiki; A short walk in the Ewa direction takes you to Ala Moana Park, Ala Moana Beach, and Ala Moana Center. . 4. A hot, high pressure walk-in shower. 5. Easy, affordable on site parking. What more could you ask for? less

ILIKAI MARINA CONDO
What a nice place. Super clean convenient ,right on the beach. Condo had everything what we needed and more. Mahalo. Helena
— Helena, Stayed 05/20/2018
Wonderful with a few exceptions
Traveled with father, flew in from San Francisco, rental car, and spent most of the time outside of Waikiki for business. Location - At the west tip of Waikiki, barely at the edge. If you want to be in central Waikiki this isn't it. ABC... more Superette was across the street which made buying basics easy. Also a McDonalds if you need one. We wanted a place away from the noise, so naturally facing the Marina should shelter us from the tourist buses, garbage trucks etc. For the most part, we were right, except for two things - 1. There is a lot of gathering of people on the street, chatting, and also partying on docked boats Friday night. 2. It wouldn't be so much of a problem except the window and balcony doors don't seal well, or at all. Noise comes in as if the windows were open. That noise also includes garbage trucks at 4am, and the occasional tour bus taking a shortcut. The Duck boat tour also launches nearby where they have to use full throttle to get back onto land. Very loud. Parking - Parking is really easy, within the same building. Cost is $23 a day, and you can prepay the entire stay the first time you exit the parking garage. Note that there are steps going to the elevator, at least in our experience. We didn't see a 100% ADA access to the residence part of the building. Elevators are fast, so there isn't much waiting time. Amenities - This condo has almost everything you could ever need. In the kitchen, everything plus some basics like cooking oil, salt, pepper, sugar. In the closets, baby crib, stroller, sunblock, bug repellent spray, extra towels, iron/board, you name it. Kitchen feels completely new. WIFI gets about 6mbps down and 2mbps up, like DSL speeds. Quality - If you're reading down this far, you'll be interested to know that a lot of the floor tiles are loose in the unit. I think the owner must've been scammed with a bad tile contractor, or there is an issue with the subflooring of the building. The flooring in the bathroom is really bad, with all most all of the grout missing, and the tiles clicking as you walk over them. There is a downslope towards the shower which is either bc the tile contractor didn't level out the floor first, or something is still sinking in that corner. Didn't really affect the stay, but was unsettling at times. My dad complained everyday about it. Also again, the windows and balcony door does not seal completely. Shower pressure/flow was pretty low. Meanwhile the bathroom sink didn't have any water saver devices. Furnishings - lots of furniture, very useful and placed effectively. Bed was decently comfortable, but the head board is loose and not mounted securely to anything. Long chair in living room was comfortable and where I spend most of my time. There is one small chair for the tiny balcony, which in the end we didn't use much. Conclusion - Would we stay here again to resolve our noise sensitivity - No. Do we think its a good value - definitely. I'd definitely recommend this unit for a family of 4 with a tight budget. less
— Lawrence, Stayed 04/30/2018
My husband and I stayed at the Ilikai Marina condo for 2 weeks and loved it. The location was perfect. We could walk to the Waikiki beach easily, as well as the Ala Moana Park and Beach. Our car was parked on the same level... more as the condo, making it convenient to load and unload the trunk. We were impressed with the congenial and helpful parking attendants.We thoroughly enjoyed the view of the marina, with the boats coming and going during the day. We sat on the balcony, with snacks and drinks, taking in the lovely sunsets many evenings. The laundry facilities were located one floor above the condo. All in all, we were very pleased with the condo, especially the location. We would happily return to this condo. less
— Marion, Stayed 04/17/2018
Great View and plenty of beach supplies
Great view of marina, sunsets and fireworks. The condo was well equipped with everything needed for our stay. We enjoyed the use of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and ice chest. Will definitely check this place for availability for our next trip!
— TC, Stayed 01/13/2018
Review for condo 786
We loved the fantastic view of the marina! The condo was very nice and very clean. It is such a great location because you can easily walk along the beach or go for swim in 10 minutes. It is located very close to the ABC... more stores and a grocery store we found within a 10 minute walk that we could pick up some items like milk and bread. All the people that work at the condo were very kind and friendly. We enjoyed our trip very much! Mahalo! less
— Sarah, Stayed 11/22/2017
Stay was okay
Pros: Beautiful view of Friday night Fireworks and sunset Parking underneath was easy Kitchen was fully stocked A/C was great Cons: Was unable to watch basic cable in living room although Roku was available was hard to navigate Basic cable in the room had to... more flip channels by standing next to tv. The remote was extremely sticky from God knows what! Plenty of loose tiles around the property. Outdated Chairs and table on balcony The bed had sand in it and me and my husband had a hard time sleepy because it made us itchy Sand in the drawers next to bed Sand all over the floor next to drawers like it was not vacuumed well Some plates were dirty in the cabinets and had to be washed before use less

ILIKAI MARINA 786
Fabulous location in Waikiki. The condo is clean, bright, and very comfortable for 2 people. Parking is a better price at this condo. Only issue was getting the key out of the combo lock. Other than that PERFECT stay!!!
— Kitty, Stayed 09/16/2017
Good location close to buses. Unit was clean. $20 a day parking. Unit had beach items available for use. Unit a little worn, but had everything we needed at a good price. Plenty of restraunt options close by.
— Jyl, Stayed 09/05/2017
Thanks for taking the time to provide feed back comments. I take my guests comments seriously. The unit bathroom and shower was remodeled in December 2016 and kitchen was remodeled in mid 2016. The bed mattress was replaced in early 2017. The living room and dinning room furniture were replaced in mid 2016. We regularly update and replace items in the unit as necessary. Hopefully, the guests will appreciate and enjoy the unit. Regarding parking, the building does not have free parking. The garage next door is very convenient. Unfortunately, the garage is not part of the building and as such I have no say about the daily rate. Again, thanks for staying with us and for providing your comments.
Great condo with all the necessary items
I was surprised that the pictures matched the suite. I was even more surprised to see just how fully loaded the place was. It had boogie boards, chairs for the beach, etc. Great place, I would return but would hope fresh batteries are supplied for... more the TV remotes. less

Ilikai Marina 786
Beautiful condo, amazing views, great location! We had an issue upon arrival due to a scheduling error but contacted Alice, the local manager, and she dealt with it immediately. We visit Honolulu often and look forward to staying here again.
— Angela, Stayed 08/25/2017
Excellent accommodation in a prime location. Phenomenal views and proximity to everything. Lanai is a bit small but it works - for 2. Comfortable, spacious and not noisy. Only negative for us was the excessive loudness of the bathroom ventilation fan. Highly recommend that you... more replace it or at least put it on a separate switch. Will definitely stay here again. We had a minor sink problem and Alice had it repaired immediately - good service. Overall - hard to beat. Aloha, DY less
— Donn, Stayed 08/03/2017
We had a wonderful visit to Waikiki and enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai Marina. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. And I appreciated the beach towels and beach "toys"! The large, spacious bed was very comfortable. Thanks for a great stay!
— Leslie, Stayed 07/27/2017
Always come back!
Always nice and clean the times we stayed there. Will always be our first choice.
— David, Stayed 04/08/2017
Great location, family friendly
We stayed here with our 4 year old and 2 year old. Great family space - lots of room for a one bedroom. Great beach toys, etc. Also a pack and play was in the closet along with beach chairs. Front row view of the... more fireworks on Friday night right from the balcony. Great location - short walk to the mall and beach and lagoon. Kitchen had basics (salt & pepper), coffee, few other things. Blender. A new dishwasher was installed when we were there. Smart TV so just log in with your Netflix :) Great place, and affordable. less
— Andrea, Stayed 03/18/2017
Want to give a 5 but can only give a 3
I really want to review this condo as a 5 because it is very nicely appointed and had everything we needed. We had everything we needed for the beach, the condo has everything we needed in the kitchen and the bathroom was renovated. However we... more slept TERRIBLY. The mattress appears to be new and we loved that it was a king bed. The problem was that the mattress was wrapped in the original packaging from the store. It was like sleeping on a plastic bag. Every time you would move the mattress would crinkle and it was hot!!!! I emailed the manager to see if we could remove it because we had not slept well at all. He claimed that the plastic was for protection of bed bugs. As a rental property owner myself I fully understand this concern however there are many products on the market for protection of this type of thing. It just seemed like they cheaped out and did not want to invest in the proper product for this type of thing and as a result we did not sleep well. I recommended that they purchase the proper product for this in future. If this problem is fixed in future I would 100% rent this condo again. Until this is fixed buyer beware of a terrible sleep! less
— Pamela, Stayed 03/04/2017
Thank you for your feedback. We have taken measures to address your concern.
Ruined our holiday
Two days before we were suppose to arrive (christmas day) we get an email cancelling our booking. Aparently due to water damage. So ended up having to book what i could find with such short notice. All money was refunded but paid alot more for... more inferior accomdation due to the short notice. Alohacondos were no help too just emailing back that they have no record of out cancelled booking. Never use them again. less
— Shannon, Stayed 01/07/2017
I stayed at Condo 786 for a week at the beginning of Dec 16, before I embarked on a weeks cruise around the Islands with my husbands family. I thought it was a great condo , and would definitely stay there again. Loved the position,... more so close to everything and the lagoon. Saw the fireworks from the lanai and as I am a sailor, looking over the marina at all the beautiful boats was amazing. The view was fantastic and you could walk everywhere. The Harbour Pub downstairs has great food too! There is an ABC shop up on the corner and a great Café with Wifi on the other corner. The facilities in the condo were good, lovely full kitchen, lounge & dining furniture, large bed was great, lanai was small, but still usable. The ensuite bathroom was great, but the fan is very noisy when the light is switched on. Also I couldn't get the main TV in the lounge to go to any TV channels, but maybe that was just my lack of expertise in technology. But the one in the bedroom worked just fine! I couldn't find the WIFI password, so rang Shirilan and he was very helpful etc. It is on the side of the modem. The only other thing I would have liked would have been a small radio, to listen to the local news and music. Other than that, everything was great and clean and I would love to stay in Condo 786 again. It was great and I loved my stay there!! less

Our stay at your condo was wonderful! We enjoyed the beautiful view from the lanai and we were even lucky enough to see a rainbow the morning we were leaving!!

— Joaquin, Stayed 08/23/2016
The unit was nice! I always have great stays here at the marina no matter the condo, though this time required a bit more patience, seems the bed frame wasn't put together properly and kept coming apart, we had to remove the mattress and box... more springs twice to attempt to fix them. And the unit had only one roll of toilet paper for the week stay, had to buy more and left the rest in the room for future tenants but overall still a great place and service is always top notch. Thanks less
— Brandon, Stayed 08/15/2016
Thanks for your feedback. We keep additional TP under the counter rather than putting them visible on the shelf. Sorry for miscommunication. The bed is new and we are not aware of any issues but we will re-examine the frame again. Again, thanks for your feedback. Shahin, owner
I rented this condo when I went to Hawaii to meet my son''s ship coming back from deployment. It was a great place to stay. The condo was very clean and everything worked great. The pictures on the website doesn't do it justice. Great location... more to access the beach. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the surfers, the boats and the people. less
— Theresa, Stayed 08/11/2016
We stayed in this condo two years ago so it felt like coming home. The location is a perfect base to explore O'ahu - and also great to watch the fireworks on Friday nights. There is understandably a little more street noise on Friday and... more Saturday nights but generally a relaxing location with the marina below. The condo is a great size for two adults and we had our 11 year old sleep on the double sleeper sofa. Two smaller kids could work too. We were very happy there and would definitely consider booking for a third visit. less
— Steve, Stayed 07/27/2016
Condo 786 is a nice place to stay when visiting Hawaii
I recently had a 9 day trip to Hawaii in which I stayed at condo 786. Although this was more of a business trip than a vacation, I look forward to taking a family vacation returning to Hawaii in the future and I would gladly... more stay in condo 786 again. It had all the amenities of a well furnished small apartment, overlooking the marina and an easy to access parking ramp right outside the condo. less

we love Hawaii islands of people, weather, culture.....this was seventh times visit these magical hawaiian island. we always stayed at hotel when visiting these islands but we decided this time as some change renting this condo. this condo is so great as locationally, it is... more just near waikiki beach as well as ala moana beach. even ala moana shopping centre is walking distance..... another amazing advantage to rent this condo is you can enjoy every day breath taking hawaiian sunset from condo room.room is clean ,once week cleaning woman very cleaning up very well. no complain !! we found only one problem is that mattress is old and not comfortable.if this is replaced as new one, we give 5 stars rating as review. this is great condo to rent !!! less
— TETSURO SAITO, Stayed 02/28/2016
The owner of this apartment is a kind and generous man....thank goodness because we had a really sorry start to our stay at 786,there had been some miscommunication with the cleaners and the place wasn't ready when we arrived at the appointed 3pm. the impression... more was grotty and dirty and hot. lots of phone calls and juggling and vacating until the job was done. Then the air conditioning was broken and the wifi didn't work......and it was a holiday weekend so nothing until the 4th day into our stay. The bathroom was especially filthy, cupboard door handles were broken and there were exposed nails from cabinetry in the kitchen. the whole thing was second rate. less
— Sharon, Stayed 01/20/2016
I have two complains: 1) Air conditioned did not work during my entire stay ay Condo. It was hot. 2) There were insufficient toilet rolls provided. I had to buy more from ABC store. cp
— Chiau , Stayed 01/06/2016
Don't look any further!
What a nice condo. I Had everything I needed. Clean, Quiet and Comfortable ! The one thing I wished was that the Lanai was bigger cuz the view was amazing. I was on the 7th floor looking right over the Marina . You can hear... more the Hawaiian Doves call to you in the morning and watch some of the most beautiful Sunsets at dusk. I went to visit my dad who lives next door at the Ilikai . On Friday nights i just cross the adjoining bridge and look towards Waikiki and you can watch the Hilton Hawaiians fireworks. Or pull up a chair for the Hawaiian Music and Dancers And then.. Reeelaaaax ! Oops did I forget to buy a shirt, souvenirs or just need a Papaya for the next mornings breakfast? No worries , the ABC store is right across the street . And you'll never go hungry with the restaurant all around you. I Have to give a shout out to The Harbor Pub downstairs. I've been going there for as long as I can remember. They have good food and good drinks. A feeling of Ohana ( family) for sure! Let's not forget the most important thing. You pay a reasonable price. When I decided to add more nights after the price had changed, the Owner was kind enough to let me have those nights for the same price . Sadly my Aunts visited didn't use Aloha Condos. They paid over $100 more a night and didn't even get the view! Mahalo to Aloha Condos for making my stay pleasant. I'll be back for sure. Aloha 🌺 less
— Shari, Stayed 10/26/2015
Fantastic condo with a fantastic view
Everything was just as described. The location was fantastic: the beach, shops, restaurants and transportation were all very short walks away. The view overlooking the marina was as good as advertised. I would definitely book this condo again.
— Joseph A, Stayed 09/29/2015
"What a view."
Information/Directions to Condo 786 from Aloha Condos were clear and concise as was info. on gaining entry. Condo. was well furnished, if not a little old fashioned.Curtains need immediate attention. Everything we needed for a very pleasant stay was available in the Condo. Very comfortable... more bed and pillows. View from the large sliding doors was to die for,simply magical. Great position within walking distance to all major Waikiki attractions and Restaurants. A value for money Condo. less
— Allan, Stayed 09/18/2015
Great location and view!
This was our fourth stay at Shahin's condo on the Ilikai Marina and we hope to come back again. You can't beat the location at the end of Waikiki beach and the beautiful view every morning of the ocean and the boats on the marina!... more The condo is very comfortable with a King bed, sitting area, full kitchen and necessities that make it easy to head off to the beach. We always enjoy having a kitchen to cut down on the expense of eating out every meal. An ABC store is conveniently located right across the street where you can pick up almost anything. Great stay as always and excited to return! less
— Gretchen, Stayed 08/28/2015
Million dollar view
The entry through the given code and instruction was straightforward. The condo is spacious for two people with separate bedroom, lounge, kitchen and bathroom, with a tiny balcony less than a metre wide. The balcony is so tiny that it makes me feel uneasy to... more sit there and enjoy the panoramic view of the marina and sea. Hot water in the shower is good. The air conditioning is good. Though the unit is dated and the furnishing is average, it serves the purpose. Read the material in the folder for wifi/tv instructions, and info on restaurants, bus, etc. Our wifi connection was down for two days and the caretaker Alice was prompt in coming to the condo with an IT guy to fix it. One major problem was the bed with soft springs making the bed sag. Tv Chanel's are adequate, with good selection. The condo has a phone for free local calls. We used the phone to ring the bus help desk, airport transfer and Alice the caretaker. Location was superb. It is on the trolley/bus lines, and walking distance to Ala Monah for the food courts. We could also enjoy the walk to the eastern end of Waikiki, and watch the free Hula show at Kuhio beach. The ABC stores is more expensive (milk, cereals, soap, eggs, ice cream) compared to food pantry on Hobron, which is not far at all. Walmart is excellent and deserves a visit. We found it easier to locate by going to the men's section at Nordstorm in Ala Monah centre and walk out to Kapiolani blvd. Walmart is within 100 metres, with Ross Dress for Less on the other side of the road. Later, we only bought water from ABC. The country express bus goes from here to Waipahu transit centre and from there bus 433 takes you to Waikele factory outlets - all for $2.50 and in an hour travel time. It is reasonably easy to do. The locals are very helpful if you are lost at Waipahu. From the transit centre it is walkable to the outlets if you know the way. less

Perfect location for a Hawaiian vacation
We had seen photos online before we arrived but nothing beats the gorgeous outlook from this apartment. The condo was extremely spacious for the three of us (2 adults, 1 child on the sleeper sofa - two children on the sleeper sofa is possible as... more it is a large one). Our flight into Honolulu arrived at 2am but getting into the apartment was so easy, thanks to Shalin's excellent instructions. The apartment is equipped with everything you need, and more, from a folder of menu's from local take-outs and restaurants, and even a selection of paperback books to read. It is also a perfect location to watch the fireworks on Friday evening at the Hilton Hawaiian Village next door. We felt very much at home during the week we stayed there, and if we return, we will definitely hope to stay here again. less

Nice location, clean, very reasonable price, beautiful view
Really convenient, walking distance to a convenience store, parking in the building $20/ day ( normal in Waikiki) , beautiful harbor view from window. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you very much.

Location, view and amenities, this condo has it all!
The view out over the marina to the southwest is awesome. This does allow for some traffic noise. The condo is dated but everything including the fans, AC and all the kitchen things work well. We did not want while staying here. Plenty of beach... more things, a small library a great internet connection. Easy walking distance to all of Waikiki, the ala Moana Beach Park and Shopping Center. The ease with the business end of things was an added bonus. Great stay! less

Good value for Waikiki
The condo is nice with great marina views and lovely sunsets. It is conveniently located for the Waikiki area - Close to the ocean and lagoon and only 5 mins walk from the main mall. The condo is much more convenient than staying in a... more hotel with all basic amenities provided, a comfy bed and great a/C. This condo is really good value for what you get in the Waikiki area. Mahalo Shahin for our stay. less

Wonderful in every way.
We had a lovely 4 weeks at this nice condo. It exceeded our expectations in every way. It was clean, very well equipped in the kitchen, and more spacious than the pictures showed. The view was absolutely incredible looking out over the harbor. Excellent location... more for walking to beach, shopping mall, and even to the movie theater a little farther away. The building has a safe feeling even in the evenings. Plenty of casual and fine dining choices just out the door. The owner, Shahin, was excellent to deal with - he quickly responded to emails, and kindly helped with special requests. We would love to return to this unit on our next visit! Our most sincere thanks for a lovely condo. less

Great value for an oceanview in Waikiki, quick walk to ala Moana
For a condo with ocean views, A/C, view of fireworks (at the Hilton) and sunset views, this condo and its price can't be beat. Owner Shahin was wonderful to deal with. Our family enjoyed our stay, just note these items: - self parking is $20/day... more at the attached parkade (very convenient access to condo) - condo is somewhat dated (esp kitchen, we didn't use the microwave which looks rather ancient). Bath towels were also a bit worn. - bathroom fan is super loud, limited counter space, and shower is dark (bulb must be broken). Be careful changing the toilet paper, one end is loose and the entire thing will pop out. - closets are rather cluttered and not well organized, beach towels and extra pillows were stored in several closets - no tea towels in kitchen, no new dish sponge, etc. Thankful for full roll of paper towels. Overall, we enjoyed the condo during our 3nt stay. If you have any questions, Shahin will respond to them quickly. Mahalo Shahin! less

Great Location, Fantastic View, Good Value
We had a very nice stay at Ilikai Marina Condo 786. It is very conveniently located to Transpac Row in the marina and the rest of Waikiki. My only suggestion for improvement would be to post some of the relevant rules near the location that... more they apply. An example is "no stuff stored or hanging on the lanai" We found out by getting a polite "warning" notice and then corrected the issue. All-in-all, the condo was just what we needed in Waikiki. less

Convenient location at a fair price
We stayed in condo 786 for a week. The accommodations were as advertised. We appreciated the fully appointed kitchen, the beach chairs, boards, etc. that were provided. The mattress on the king sized bed may need to be replaced soon as it sags a bit... more in the middle. The condo is over a restaurant/bar and can be fairly noisy at night if one is a light sleeper. The condo is conveniently located near the ala Moana park and shopping center with easy access to Waikiki and bus service. I do not hesitate to recommend this as a good housing option for anyone on a budget as it is very reasonably priced. less

We love the location and the size of the condo. With full kitchen, big bed, nice size living room. it was perfect for the 2 of us. The only 2 things I don't like are: 1. It was very dirty under the furniture like bed... more and sofa. that needs to be cleaned. 2. The bed or the bed sheet smells (I'm not sure). We have to spray it at night and spread it out during the day. it's clean but there is a smell to it, I can't describe. The rest is all good. I would go back again. less

Nice place on Waikiki
Overall it was a good experience. The location is by far the best part of the condo. The amenities were good but not all that convenient. The condo was clean but it had a musty smell to it that lingered.It had items that you could... more use like body boards, snorkel gear, chairs and other handy things. That was nice to have. Overall for the price and location it was good. I would do it again. less

Perfect! Home away From Home!
Great condo! Gorgeous views. Second condo we've rented at the llikai Marina. Perfect location next to Modern Honolulu and the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Be sure to check out their Fireworks on the beach every Friday Night! Pre-pay parking at the garage. No pool but great... more beaches. Cute deck with outstanding views. We have found the llikai Marina to be a fantastic value and a perfect home away from home! less

amazing view, wonderful place to stay
We stayed here for almost a week and really loved it. It was nice being in a touristy area with all the shops and stores, but having our own private oasis among it all. The place was wonderful to stay at and had everything we... more needed to feel like at home. Though the air Conditioner was not strong enough for my liking and it took a few days to get used to the warmer sleeping situation. But my partner had no problem with the warmth. But once I got used to it, it was great. The parking lot is connected to the apartment buidling, which was great for moving stuff in and out of the building. It is about a 15 minute walk to were all the action is, so not far, but perfect distance to not be right in it. The view! the view, this place has the most amazing view, whether it is watching the sunrise to sunsetting, it is a dream to look out at. Make sure you book a Friday stay as you can watch the fireworks from the balcony. Overall, we enjoyed it a lot and the host was very helpful with all inquiries. less
— Patrick, Stayed 10/14/2012
Condo unit has view of marina and away from the main part of Waikiki but close to Hilton Hawailian Village. Parking is available within the building for $20.00/day prepaid with in and out privilege. Parking on the right floor will make it easy for unloading... more as condo unit is just steps away without taking an elevator. Unit is clean throughout with kitchen well stocked with everything needed for cooking a meal including spices. 2 set of bath and beach towels available for use as well as beach equipment (chairs, boogie board, snorkel stuff). The only item that would have been nice to have is a cooler. Overall, good place for us. less
— Andrew, Stayed 10/01/2012
Good location, but make sure the condo guests have access to the
Walk to the beach and the mall. Nice location and good supplies, including beach towels and chairs, boogie board, etc. The sofa converts to a pull-out bed. Appliances are outdated but functioning O.K. Bathroom looked recently renovated. For families, this is a very good place... more to stay. 4 people can sleep comfortably. The owners manual says the condo guest can access almost all Ilikai hotel's amenities, but the hotel staff says a different story. We got kicked out of the hotel pool. Also, the condo is on the dock, so it is very noisy in early morning and at night as well due to the traffic, garbage trucks and the drunks at the pub located on the first floor of the condo. That helped us to start days early. Parking is $20 per day, so expect to pay additional fees.Otherwise competitive pricing. Overall, good experience. less

Comfortable/great value near Waikiki Beach
My family of 3 stayed in Condo 786 for a few days as we were passing through and catching some sights around Oahu. The owner/manager was very helpful getting us the information needed to check in/out. Condo was well stocked with beach necessities. Great location,... more 5 minute walk to Waikiki Beach without having to cross busy streets. Minutes away from all the Waikiki excitement...food, shopping, fun, just take the free Waikiki shuttle. We paid $20 a day for parking in the Ilikai's garage, which was well worth having our vehicle just steps away. less

Ilikai Marina 786 is fine!
My family enjoyed staying in this unit. It has what we needed. Having the full kitchen made life much easier as we could prepare the meals we wanted to prepare. This cut the potential food expenditures in half. It is well-equipped with a few additional... more beach items. Being well located between ala Moana Center and Waikiki was a bonus. I highly recommend this unit as a superb alternative to a crowded hotel room, or two hotel rooms. The owner, Mr. Shiralian, is considerate and friendly. He allowed us a late check out as the unit was unscheduled and our flight had a very late departure. Give this unit a try. I am sure you will be pleased. less

Convenient and complete
My boyfriend and I stayed at Illikai Marina room 786 for 14 days. I highly recommend this place of stay for several reasons: 1. As a woman, I like my breakfast with all the amenities like a skillet, pots, utensils, etc. This room had it... more all! 2. The room was spacious and comfortable. I especially enjoyed the sunrise and sunset in the room... Just breaktakingly beautiful. 3. I don't think this room left out anything... We needed a beach towel and they had it! Awesome! I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family. less

Well equipped, very clean, & a good location
This condo is prettier than the pictures, and very well equipped.It's at the end of the Waikiki area, but still convenient to shops, restaurants, the beach, & the bus line. (About a 10 minute walk to ala Moana shopping center- buy your groceries there, as... more well as anything else you can possibly imagine). The bed was very comfortable, and when we had trouble getting the t.v. working,the local contact for the condo responded immediately & helped out. A great value for the money, although the cleaning fee (for a 3 day stay) seemed a bit high - but it is Hawaii, where nothing is cheap, and the daily condo rental itself was very reasonable. less

The condo overlooks the yacht harbor. You can also see the ocean and Waikiki beach from the bedroom window. The unit is good for two to three people. The location is ideal for shopping, access to beach, dining out and other fun activities. Convenient location... more for tour bus pick-up (at Ilikai Hotel) across the street. Paid parking available attached to Ilika Marina. The condo is close to everything you would need; we did not need to rent a car except for one day. We did not use the kitchen much but it would help to have newer dishes. Bathroom is on the smaller side with only a shower stall. There is no tub in the bathroom. There was enough linens and pillows. The sofa bed was quite comfortable. Wireless internet is available and free. less

Ideal view, location and value. The best Waikiki accommodation
I've visited Waikiki 4 times over the years and stayed in various levels of accommodation namely the Waikiki Shore appartments, Sheraton Waikiki and the Outrigger on the beach. In my opinion the Ilikai Marina represents the best combination due to being an apartment with full... more kitchen, having a perfect unobstructed ocean+marina view, conveniently located between the Hilton lagoon and the ala Moana shopping center. Then there is of course the significant price advantage over a hotel stay or even other comparable apartments. The apartment itself is fully equipped with everything you could require. My only slight misgiving would be the size of the lanai which although serves its purpose is a little small (room for two chairs and a small table only). The other significant plus is the owner Shahin who is very easy to deal with and provides first class support for any questions or issues you may have. I would certainly stay in condo 786 again. less

Ideal location and absolutely wonderful views
My first visit to Hawaii was most definitely enhanced by our stay at Condo 786. Waking up to views across the marina to the ocean was a great way to start each day.Watching the fabulous sunsets from our lanai was a great way to finish... more the day. A small disadvantage of this western outlook was the sun streaming in during the afternoon necessitating drawing of the curtains. See-through climate control blinds would have been appreciated. Nevertheless, close proximity to beaches and shops of Waikiki, and pickup points (for local and tour buses) made daily activities easy and pleasureable.Our compliments to alice, the local manager,who handled a small maintenance issue with speed and coutesy. Email negotiations and contacts with the owner made the booking arrangements easy and personal. less

Terrific location and view at an unbeatable value!
My husband and I decided to book this condo during our first vacation to Hawaii for our anniversary. If you want to stay in Waikiki but don't necessarily want to be in the heart of all the action, then this location is perfect for you.... more Very convenient to ala Moana Shopping Center, Ala Moana Beach Park, Hilton Lagoon area, and more. The condo itself was great, with only very minor cleanliness issues (i.e. I had an item roll under the bed, and noticed it did not appear to be vacuumed under there - quite dusty). Other than that though, everything you could need comes with the condo: towels, sheets, beach chairs, a boogie board, wide assortment of kitchen items, roll of paper towels, 3 rolls of toilet paper, a bar of soap, and dish soap. Bottom line: I would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat when visiting Hawaii in the future. less

This condo provided everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped. Bed was comfortable, as was the pullout couch. Be prepared to pay for the parking. Close to beach, park and shopping for walkers and right on the trolley transit route. Beautiful view of the... more ocean just over the tops of sailboat masts - not through them. The restaurant/bar below was not too loud to bother us and we actually enjoyed the sounds of jazz sax on a few nights while sipping a beverage on the lanai. Our only observation that could be changed is that the bathroom fan sounds a bit like a plane taking off- it is quite loud. The internet met all the needs of our 15 year old son and it was great to be able to make local calls from the unit. We had other family members come over for supper and the table expanded nicely - there are only six chairs so we had to improvise for the two others we needed. We were ther over New Years and it was great to be able to stay in the comfort of the condo and our own beverages to watch the fireworks from the lanai. The lanai is small only two people but there is plenty to see, susnsets. whales, surfers, planes, sailboats, birds, and of course there are always a few people to watch on the street below. We were glad that we chose the ocean view as the other view looking towards the mountains overlooked a parkade. the condo provided beach towels and we left a boogie board there,couldn't quite figure out the red beach chair. All in all yes we would stay there again. less

Excellent location and accommodations
We loved staying at Ilikai Marina Condo 786. It is located within 5min from Rainbow Hilton Tower and Hawaiian Village. Condo was neat and cozy. We were surprised to find more kitchenware that we could possible hope for and all needed beach supplies (towels, chairs,... more etc). Unit also had TV and unlimited WiFi access. Ac worked quite well. Laundry room was available in the building, but not on the same floor as condo. Would highly recommend, if you would like to spend quality time for less. less

Great location for a reasonable price.
We really appreciated the location. We enjoyed a harbour/sunset view without paying the price of a hotel on Waikiki beach. It was convenient/close to the great bus system on Oahu. It was also within easy walking distance to the ala Moana shopping mall and the... more Waikiki strip. The bed was king size and comfortable - always important! The unit was spacious and comfortable. The lanai was very tiny and not really good for spending any time on, but the view was great. The kitchen was very functional but the stove wasn't working when we were there so a hot plate was provided. We had planned on cooking but couldn't really so eating out was necessary and that is expensive. The hot plate was not great as it took a very long time to boil water for a cup of tea! I also called the cleaning service as one of the bedroom side lamps was broken. She said no problem, but never came to fix or replace it so we had to move a living room lamp to the bedroom for the week. The cleaning service fee is way too high. less
— Kathy, Stayed 09/04/2010
Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately the glass surface stove broke when another guest dropped a heavy object on it. To my surprise, there was no similar stove on the island and I had to order one and wait for it to arrive. ;-( I placed a hot plate during the wait period. Aloha, Mr. Shahin Shiralian, Owner, Ilikai Marina, Condo 786
Great way to go for those with no need for room service!!
3rd year using alohacondos.com. Good value due to the accessibility of Waikiki, ocean view, fairly large one bedroom with most amenities, $120 service charge for cleaning slightly excessive but overall good value.

July 2010 Visit
Had a wonderful time in this condo and its location met our needs very well. However the only "downer" was that when we arrived there was a note stating that the previous people had broken the stove and it was not available for use. We... more had planned on cooking all of our meals during our stay to minimize our vacation costs but were unable to. That's one of the reasons we prefer condos over hotels; the mere fact that we can cook our own meals instead of going out each time for a meal. The hot plate that was left for our use just did not cut it. So unfortunately we ended up with quite a sizable increase in expenditures that we had not planned for. Other than that, your condo was very enjoyable and we will certainly will want to rent it once again in the future. Thank you very much for making it available. Mahalo and aloha less

I stayed previously at this condo about a year ago. At the time I forgot to leave a review. This time I didn't forget. As one year ago this condo experience was great. Great location in Waikiki, very close to shopping and entertainment. Beach is... more just steps away and an incredible 180 degree view from the patio. The condo is clean, has a full kitchen, wireless internet and cable tv. The bed is huge and extra comfortable. The owner of thee unit is a real gentlemen, I assure you that. He will always try to make all your requests possible. I will be back in Unit 786 very soon. less

Best Location and Views in Waikiki
A wonderful place to stay for spring break with my daughter, and 5 year old grandson. The views of the marina, ocean and sunset are unbeatable. The unit was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. It felt spacious and I liked the way one could always... more look out at the amazing view without being over-cluttered with too much furniture. The Lagoon and Beach were really close, and an easy walk for a 5 year old and so we could easily go to and fro during the day. It was really good value, and I would recommend this as a great place to stay for anybody less
