We were here for nine days and had beautiful time here at unit 992 like usual. I believe this was our third time here at this unit and very satisfied
— Sung, Stayed 09/20/2022
We experienced excellent accommodations with a spectacular ocean view of Ala Moana and the boat harbor. Our family loves to surf and we could walk to some of our favorite spots and enjoy some great South Shore surfing. I would highly recommend the Ilikai Marina,... more condo 992 for its location, views, and it's bright modern living space. less

Ilikai Marina, Condo 992
Wonderful place to stay while the family enjoys Honolulu. Condo was just like the web site explained. Parking was available and easy to use. The view from this condo was amazing. The host (Jerry Eng) did an amazing job handling all the details of the... more trip. We hope to return to the islands soon and would like very much to stay in this same condo. less

Great location, clean unit
Tremendous location! The condo actually appears nicer than in the online photos. If there is one improvement that we could suggest… a dishwasher would add a lot to the convenience of the unit, otherwise it is a clean and convenient rental.
— Les, Stayed 07/15/2022
Awesome views in an excellent location
The condo has a fantastic view of the marina and the ocean. It is ideal for a couple, but comfortably accommodated four people - two in the bedroom and two in the sofa bed. Is is well-equipped with kitchen and bathroom items. The place is... more clean and furnishings are functional. A great feature is its excellent location - walking distance to Ala Moana Center, Magic Island, and Waikiki. I would definitely consider staying again in the condo in the future. Highly recommended! less
— Teresita Ramirez, Stayed 06/13/2022
This was a great condo. Very well equipped. It has a great view, easy check in. It has a lot of things that had I known I would not have brought with me in my luggage (blow dryer, straightener, curling iron). Super convenient! It also... more has extra blankets and towels to include beach accessories. They do not have trash bags and you’re required to throw out your trash so just grab a couple bags. Very easy to throw out the trash in their chute which I’d only open certain hours. Downside is you do pay for parking but you kinda do everywhere at least they have a garage. Another thing was there was kind of like a dirty carpet smell in the hallways of the building, nothing crazy. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would definitely come back. Highly recommend! less

Beautiful view but a bit noisy
We booked this location pretty last minute, since we waited to see if there were any changes to Hawaii’s COVID regulations. Thankfully, it was still available for us. Not only did we get a fantastic rate, but we got an oceanfront view to boot! The... more room was large enough for the three of us to relax in, had all of the amenities we needed, and was away from the hustle and bustle of the main Waikiki area. The only little negative we experienced was with some noise. Lots of yelling and laughing coming from some people down on the street level on the weekend. There was also a small knocking from the refrigerator as the compressor came on. Sounded like someone was knocking on a door. We just unplugged it at night and plugged it back in, in the morning. No big deal. Overall, it was very pleasant, especially in the mornings, when we opened the sliding door and enjoyed our breakfast watching the sun rise. And the sunsets are to die for! If you’re on a budget, but still want to experience the beauty of Hawaii, this place fits the bill. Just expect that there might be a little noise from inconsiderate people. less

liking Marina Condo 993
Had. Great time and unit was clean and supplied with necessary equipment. Would stay again as we were very comfortable and it was quiet and peaceful with an awesome view. Thank you Jerry Eng for your help and understanding. Evangeline Aloha for now HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!... more 🍁🦃🙋🏽♀️ less
— Evangeline C, Stayed 11/21/2021
Comfortable and Well-Equipped
It really couldn't have been better. My first Hawaii surf trip since the pandemic was a little awkward because of the COVID restrictions, but the condo was perfect. The kitchen in particular was very well equipped - all the pots, pans and utensils I needed,... more plus basics like cooking oil, salt, pepper and a few other seasonings. This was important to me since I prepared most of my meals in the condo due to the aforementioned restrictions. The furniture and bed were comfortable, the TV is nice-sized, and it's location on the 9th floor means less street noise, not to mention a great place to check the surf from the balcony. I'll stay here again. less
— R, Stayed 09/29/2021
Loved my stay in this condo! Clean and comfortable with a beautiful view. Looking for to a return in the future.
— Cynthia , Stayed 09/05/2021
Awesome view little condo!
Starting to get out and about now that travel restrictions are loosening up. We usually go outer island but with the rental car issue in Hawaii we thought we’d try this area of Waikiki on recommendation from a friend. Everything we needed was within walking... more distance pretty much. Harbor Pub directly downstairs as a start. Spectacular view from our condo straight out to Ala Moana with Westside sunset color nightly. We’ll definitely be back, and will absolutely recommend this totally affordable, super clean and comfortable condo on Oahu to our friends! Thanks for the wonderful time and stay Pono! Joel less
— Joel, Stayed 07/26/2021
Perfect Home Away from Home!
Aside from the absolutely stunning views of the marina, Ala Moana Beach Park, sunsets, sailboats and surfers on the ocean this condo has everything you need for a very comfortable vacation. The kitchen is fully equipped with a full size fridge, oven, microwave, pots, pans,... more coffee pot, electric kettle and even a blender. The condo is spotless and decorated with beautiful Hawaiian decor. The building is secure and quiet, with a clean laundry room one floor down. Morning ocean walks are just outside the door. I highly recommend this unit and cannot wait to return. less
— Annmarie, Stayed 07/14/2021
Had a nice comfortable, enjoyable stay at the condo 992 and will definitely return! Condo was clean and immaculate! No complaints or issues! My husband and I are happy customers and will gladly stay at condo 992 in the near future and regularly if available!... more Thank you, Jerry and Alice!!! Just one suggestion, it would be nice to have a portable cart at your closet for the guests to be able to transport groceries and shopping bags to and from the garage and car rental. We found it 'very' difficult carrying grocery bags and/or beach/pool equipment to the elevator and long hallways. I didn't want to buy a cart because of the airplane fees to transport. So, if you can buy the condo a cart for guests that would be most AWESOME!! I plan to return in October 2021. :=) less
— Carrin, Stayed 06/23/2021
Let me count the ways: stunning view, convenient location, beautifully appointed (had everything we needed for a comfortable stay), tastefully furnished, and a host who generously accommodate our travel-related requests. We’ll be back!
— Elizabeth, Stayed 05/25/2021
Condo 992, Ilikai Marina
Excellent in every way: clean, magnificent view, excellent location, well appointed (with dishes, etc.), and very comfortable. Thank you.
— Robert, Stayed 02/10/2020
The place was great! Location, cleanness, size, and (must’ve mentioned) the sliding door that separates the living room from the bedroom. The balcony is a little tiny. Adding a dishwasher would be great. One of the two elevatorS for the upper floors broke down for... more several days. It was no issue for us. (We used the stairs). It could be a problem for some who can’t take stairs. I contacted by email “Ryan Hass” to see if we could extend our stay. I thought he can use PR lessons on communication. I wrote: Hello, I am looking to stay in HNL for 3 more nights (Jan. 2-5). I was wondering how much will it cost me if your condo is available during that time. Please let me know at your earliest convenience so I can weigh my options. Thank you for a prompt response. Best Yvette He wrote back: ”I do not handle anything to do with the bookings you would have to contact who you booked through”. Our stay was great! We will stay again. less
— Yvette L, Stayed 01/07/2020
Hello, I have stayed at Ilikai Marina Condo 992 past couple of times when I visit in Hawaii. This time, I feel like the floor was not swiped or cleaned. I could see the previous guest's hair all over the floor. Rather than the unclean... more floor, I was able to stay comfortably. less
— Shimami, Stayed 12/21/2018
The condo was perfect! Large kitchen, with all of the necessary kitchen stuff, in a great location right by the harbor with a beautiful view. We enjoyed the condo very much. Very quiet and peaceful, it was just a couple of blocks away from the... more crowds at the Hawaiian Village. The condo was well maintained and very clean. We loved it! less
— Karen, Stayed 12/10/2018
Great vacation location!
We enjoyed our stay at condo #992 at the Ilikai Marina. The unit was very comfortable, had everything we needed for our stay, and is in a perfect location. We enjoyed our stay there and look forward to coming back. (We would enjoy it even... more more if some detailed cleaning was done, especially in the bathtub area.) less
— Gerald & Mary, Stayed 11/02/2018
Great little apartment
We really enjoyed our stay here. Very comfortable apartment well appointed and comfortable.
— Phil, Stayed 10/11/2018
The condo is in a great location with a magical view across the marina. We also enjoyed watching the Friday night fireworks from the balcony. The unit was well stocked with everything we needed to self cater, and also beach chairs and toys.
— Louise, Stayed 09/23/2018
Great location and spacious condo
We were pleasantly surprised with the Ilikai Marina as we had stayed at the Ilikia Hotel before and expected a similar condo. The Ilikai Marina is much more spacious and still offers all the conveniences of being walking distance to the Hilton Lagoon and also... more Ala Moana Shopping Mall. Our condo had a great view of the marina and also the fireworks on the lagoon (every Friday night the Hilton puts on a 10 minute firework display), and was a good sized space for a family of 4. The bedroom was separated from the main lounge room by a sliding wall, which meant we were able to watch TV when the kids were asleep. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed (even a rice cooker!). When we visit Oahu again we will certainly be back. less
— Nicola, Stayed 09/13/2018
Great Location, Clean Condo, it has everything you need
Location..Location.. Location! The view is spectacular & the location is great, you can save by renting somewhere far from the beach but you will have to rent a car. This condo is the best location walking distance from all the places that you will need... more to visit frequently. We enjoyed our stay there. The condo was very clean. Everything we needed was there. Whatever was described on the website was there and even more. Our only comment that the sofa bed was not very comfortable but still acceptable and the washroom is old but still functional. The owner always respond whenever we called to ask any question. We look forward to stay there again. In Conclusion, we won't forget this vacation and we definitely recommend this condo to everyone. less
— John Kamel, Stayed 09/06/2018
My wife and I stayed in your condo for 12 nights. Very enjoyable! It is so nice to get up in the morning and just sit and look at the ocean while enjoying that first cup of coffee. We would stay at Ilikai Marina Condo... more 992 again. Thank you! John less
— John, Stayed 08/26/2018
Great location, but a little updating needed
We very much enjoyed our stay in condo 992. The views were stunning! The layout worked very well for our stay (couple with a small baby), and the spacious layout was great. The kitchen is huge! Improving just a couple of little things would make... more a difference... there were several lights either not working or not even wired in! So it was very dim in the evenings. Not usually a problem... we really only noticed it on the last night when we were trying to pack and would have liked more light to do this! Also, the bathroom is really dated and let's the whole thing down... it was the worst shower we had in Hawaii. If you updated the bathroom, this would be a five star review. We rented this condo while our family stayed at the Hilton and this walked well - just a short walk between the two, and other than being more modern, I don't think their apartment in the Hilton was that much better than ours for the money they paid! We walked everywhere. The central location, and proximity to the Ala Moana Centre (where many buses leave from) make it a great place to base yourself. less

Ilikai Marina condo 992
We stayed at the Ilikai Marina Condo number 992 for 17 days in June 2018. We found the condo to be adequate for our purpose which was to visit with our two young granddaughters. We found the condo was clean and comfortable and the location... more was close to perfect. Close to shopping, bus stops (which we used to get everywhere) and the Hilton Lagoon for swimming. Some things could stand improvement such as some of the pots and pans for cooking and the bathroom really needed some updating. My wife found the mattress was too soft for her but I had no problem with it. I sure wouldn't like to sleep on the pull out bed in the living room, but our two young granddaughters didn't mind it. One thing we did miss was a lack of an on site swimming pool but it looks like the building has plans for one in the future. The view of the marina and ocean is really good but make sure you bring some binoculars to enjoy it to the fullest. Also bring a couple rolls of quarters for the laundry on the 8th floor. It's $2.50 each for wash and dry. There are plenty of towels, both shower and beach, and if you stay long enough for a interim cleaning they are all replaced with the cleaning. Although the condo is not as luxurious as some of the condos we have stayed at in NC and FL we would not hesitate to stay there again. less
— Howard Duff, Stayed 07/07/2018
It was OK
I have stayed at the Ilikai Marina several times before, never in this unit before. I love the location and was looking for something for 2 nights, so unit 992 fit the bill, but it was just OK. The cable went out the on my... more first full day. I know this can happen though no fault of the owner but after seeing other reviews, I think this happens fairly regularly. PROS: The 9th floor is high enough up so as not to hear noise from restaurant and foot traffic below, the bed was EXTREMELY comfortable and the A/C worked great and so was the water pressure (which can be a problem in Honolulu). The unit had a few extras for the beach (which I didn't use, but nice to have access to). I didn't use the sofa bed but the sofa was comfortable to sit on. CONS: The kitchen had the basics, but I didn't want to open cabinets too often because they looked and felt like they would fall off the hinges. There was a coffee maker but it would have been nice to have a bit of "starter" coffee (just a nice touch). There is still an open socket in the ceiling over the table, no overhead light. The only lighting in the living area was overhead in the kitchen and two table lamps in the living room, so using the table for dining or anything at night was not possible. This unit served it's purpose for 2 days and location at a reasonable price for Honolulu but I would have been very disappointed if I was staying there for a longer vacation or with my family. I will definitely stay at the Ilikai Marina again, but I don't think I would choose this unit. 5 stars for the Ilikai Marina, 2 stars for unit 992. less
— Donna, Stayed 05/21/2018
Love this older complex and have stayed in a few of the units. Unit 992 has a beautiful view, is clean, but could use a few upgrades. The bed is very lumpy and should be replaced. The slider to the balcony is very hard to... more open and close, and even harder to get the lock in place. Other than that it was comfortable and well equipped. less
— Donna, Stayed 05/14/2018
Great Floor Plan
We are in Honolulu several times each year and return to the Ilikai Marina frequently. The floor plan in this unit is my favorite. There is a vanity inside as well as outside the bathroom and access from both living room and bedroom. Lots of... more supplies for playing at the beach in the front closet and extra sleeping pads with bed linens if you want to bring children. You will find the kitchen well supplied if you want to cut a fresh pineapple, make a Mai Tai, or (heaven forbid) cook. I would have given a five star rating but some guests will feel things are a bit dated and the bed too soft. less
— Diana, Stayed 05/11/2018
The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. The view of the marina, beach and oceana are amazing! It was a quick 10 minute walk to Waikiki Beach & a few minutes from Ala Moana Mall. I’ve stayed in three different Aloha Confis at this... more location, and definitely be back! less
— Cheri, Stayed 04/24/2018
We had a great stay. The view from lanai is all I expected. The a/c was efficient and quiet.
— Judith, Stayed 03/12/2018
Ilikai Marina Condo 992
This condo building is located in a central location and easy to reach Downtown Honolulu and Waikiki Beach areas. We had a one bedroom unit that was clean and fullu stocked, but needed some minor attention. The bathroom towel bar was loose on the right... more end and the Towel rack also had a loose bracket on the right that needed attention. There was no celing light/fan in the dining area. There was an open receptacle for it but no fixture. It made it very dark in the unit if you wanted to eat after dark or play a game. Overall the unit was nice but did need some attention. less
— Charles, Stayed 03/07/2018
The unit was filthy I paid $135 for a cleaning fee and I’m not quite sure what that was for I took pictures in case the owner wants to see the condition of his condo it was awful my daughter would not even stay there... more she went back to her aunties to stay we only slept there and I tried to clean up before I left I hope no one else has this unfortunate experience less
— Robin, Stayed 02/28/2018
aloha, We are surprised to hear you were unhappy with the cleanliness of this condo. The cleaning fee is charged for when you depart to clean after you for the next guest. We wish if you were so unhappy you would have called us right away so we could have immediately sent someone by to take care of whatever your concerns were. We do take it very seriously and do reserve the right to remedy any issue that might arise.
Every Year Totally Great Vacation Condo
As usual we spent the first week of our vacation in Condo 992.at the Illikai Marina. It has a extremely comfortable bed. All appliances and TV work very well. It has daily sunshine coming in from the ocean view beyond the lanai which is right... more below us. All the small boats are lined up and active right below your lanai. Appliances all work well. There are the required kitchen accessories. Air flow into the condo makes it very comfortable and the thermomoter provides air and warmth. as required Friday night you can enjoy the fireworks from the close by Hawaiian Village right from your lanai. Another real treat is the beautiful and picturesque sunrise each evening overlooking the ocean, beaches from nearby hotels. The largest mall is quite close. Transportation for rental and city buses, as well as, top notch shopping, food, etc. are all within walking. less
— Melvin & Audrey Nehrkorn, Stayed 01/28/2018
Everything was terrific. The unit is not as updated as some I've stayed in, but very clean and had everything I needed. WIFI dudn't work. I was able to connect to the modem, but not the internet, even after resetting modem several times. It wasn't... more a big deal and I didn't contact anyone as a result. I'm sure it's an easy fix. I would stay again, and hopefully will. less
— Sandi, Stayed 01/18/2018
This is the second or third time I’ve stayed in this unit it’s a great unit it’s clean it’s modern has everything there I’ll always stay there when I can
— ralph, Stayed 12/15/2017
Had a very restful, relaxing week - the condo is an "open" feel with lots of sunlight and just the right amount of furniture: comfortable, firm couch and chair, glass dining room table near the glass doors overlooking the ocean. Kitchen has granite countertops, dishes,... more pots, frying pans. Comfortable king-sized bed, Toilet works well. Bathtub was adequate, but could use an upgrade. Had breakfast viewing the beautiful ocean with shades of blues and greens, the white waves cresting - could even hear the ocean! Friday night, we ate dinner in the condo and viewed the fireworks from the Hilton Hawaiian Village lagoon. There's ample parking, $20/night if you pay in advance the first time you exit. Will return! less
— Cheryl, Stayed 07/04/2017
Convenient Location to Ala Moana Center
The condo has nice views of the ocean and harbor. It was a 10 minute walk to Ala Moana Center for mall shopping and huge food courts. Walmart is across the street from Ala Moana Center and great to get souvenirs vs. going to the... more swap meet. less
— JT, Stayed 06/12/2017
We enjoyed the condo n location. The pictures are true to the actual Place. Needed a few minor repairs which we listed. They provided very nice, large thick beach towels. We would rent again
— Peter, Stayed 05/30/2017
Great View-Favorite Condo In Honolulu
This condo has been our choice in Honolulu for several years. It has a great ocean view from the 9th floor. Since our stay last year a whole new combination of coach, main chair, and 4 chair & dining table are a great addition. An... more expensive but complicated new thermostat has also been installed. We had to call the caretaker to learn how to use it and he agreed the 2 page instructions was very difficult to understand. The bed was wonderful. Got pictures of picturesque sunsets and shopping and eating places are all within several blocks either way. Would suggest an upgrade in all kitchenware to make the condo more attractive. . . less
— Melvin F, Stayed 01/31/2017
Aloha, We are so happy to hear you have enjoyed this condo for several years and keep coming back. Thank you for noticing all the great additions that have been made to this unit. The Ilikai Marina did undergoing a great transformation with brand new air conditioning units and thermostats. We did leave the instruction booklet near by as you are not the first to have a hard time with the adjusting of this thermostat. To take it a step further however, the owner, has decided to write up a new instruction sheet that will be easier to understand and will be installed on 2/3/2017. The condo was updated a while ago with several new kitchen stock such as cutlery, plates, glasses and cups. However we will send someone by there to see if perhaps there are any other kitchen items that might be needed or replaced. Thank you for your review and we hope to continue to see you return again and again. Thanks so much for your business!
Not impressed with the presention of unit
When I booked this accommodation it was for a twin share, however it was a king share that was given to me, also there was no toilet paper, no kitchen cleaning products, plastic glasses were scratched & appeared dirty, coffee cups dirty, difficult to fill... more jug as it would not fit under the tap. Unable to connect to WI Fi. I did contact the managing agent who was helpful & did address some of these problems. She said she would try & liaise with the owner for some sort of compensation but have not heard of anything further. Would not recommend this unit as it was not value for money. less
— Dianne, Stayed 10/02/2016
Cons -Lots of remodel happening on the same floor. -Condos are numbered not in order from smaller to greater they are just scattered. - Bedding should be replaced. -Pull out couch was flaking and also should be replaced. Pros -Loved the location and view of... more the marina. - Affordable. -The lock to get in with the code was very convient. -Parking $20.00 a day/night. less
— Makella, Stayed 09/10/2016
My family and I have been going to Oahu for the past 10 years every year. We love staying at Ilikai Marina because of its location and views. Condo 992 surely offered the comforts of home and good memories. It's clean and spacious. Although the... more furniture are outdated and worn out due to common wear and tear over the years, it still served as well. There were ample linens including towels. Just as our predecessors have done, we left beach toys for the next guests to use. Interim cleaning was very satisfying. I would recommend this condo for any family who would love to save money and enjoy an ocean view every morning. Parking is not included but public parking is available by the Marina. Go to Diamond parking office and inquire about monthly pass if your stay is 2 weeks or more. It's worth it. less
— Annie, Stayed 08/16/2016
The condo was well located but sadly the condo itself was not to the standard we expected. Bed linen was old and poor quality. Pillows were old and in poor condition. Only lighting in the bedroom was one poorly lit bed lamp. The divan was... more an old vinyl settee which was cracked and peeling. Throw cushions were becoming unstitched. ALL the kitchen cupboards had damaged hinges and stained interiors. Crockery was chipped and stained. The balcony was too small for two people to sit on. The furniture took up all the space. No sitting watching the sunset over a drink! Overall, it was typically an investment property, furnished with second hand cast offs. We did not feel that we were welcome as guests, just paying customers. We had stayed in two previous VRBO properties in the weeks prior which were of the highest standard, so we were very disappointed with the presentation. less
— Karen, Stayed 07/26/2016
The view was fantastic. Very good unit but the sofa needs to be replaced or recovered as it was shedding pieces when sat on. The security personnel was very helpful. Would return again.
— KAREN, Stayed 07/05/2016
Less than Ideal
We stayed 2 weeks in Hawaii, doing one week in Oahu, a half week in Maui, and 3 more days in Oahu to close our trip. We stayed in this condo during our second stint in Oahu. We found this condo through VRBO, but after... more inquiring, the owner charged us more than was quoted on the website. Upon arrival, several light bulbs were burnt out, leaving the room very dark. We had a later flight home, and asked for a few hours for a late check out, but the owner unreasonably tried to charge us half a day. Seemed like he was more interested in making a few extra bucks than helping guests enjoy their stay. I will say that the location was excellent, the view was beautiful, and the bed was very comfortable. However, there are many owners in this building that make their condo available for rent (we stayed in a different one for the first leg of our trip). less

Hi Marcel, Thanks for asking. Everything was just great. Harold Sterling
— Harold, Stayed 03/11/2016
Time in Honolulu
Loved the location. The condo was more than adequate but some of the furniture needs replacing. We had some plumbing problems but aloha condos and Monica were prompt in solving the problem. There were major repairs going on in the building that detracted from our... more stay thus the 3 stars. less
— Janice, Stayed 02/09/2016
Weve been to oahu many times. But, this view tops them all. The location is perfect. The condo was great. Booking company was responsive and excellent yo work with. I highly recommend this place. Hope to go back :).
— debohra, Stayed 01/23/2016
Over all, we really enjoyed the condo. I found the bathtub area to be dated and not something I would feel comfortable taking a bath in. The view from the marina was wonderful! I appreciated having dishes and pots/pans for us to use.
— Nick, Stayed 11/12/2015
Aloha, We appreciate you taking the time to respond to our request for a review. We are glad to hear you were pleased with condo and you enjoyed the wonderful views from the lanai. The kitchen amenities as you mentioned are a bonus and very convenient if you prefer to eat in. We do strive to keep the units clean and comfortable and wish you would have been comfortable with using the bathtub for bathing. We hope you see you again in paradise!
Condo 992 in Oct. 2015
Let start with what I liked about the Condo 992. The location was good and the building as a whole is well maintained. Now as for the condo itself I would not stay there in the future. I found that the entire condo is really... more dated, worn and old. It is in need of a major renovation. A ceiling light was missing and I found the bathroom really in need of an upgrade. You cannot really call the balcony a balcony. The marina in front of the condo reminded me of a landfill floating in the water, much trash. The couch is really in bad condition and quite uncomfortable. The pictures of this condo on the website is quite deceiving. less
— Daniel, Stayed 10/28/2015
Great condo - great location
We really enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai Marina. The reservation and check in process was smooth and easy - and the location is great! Awesome view of the Harbor and Ocean. The condo was a little older than it appears in the picture,but still... more clean and a pleasant place for our stay. I would definitely stay here again. less
— Michelle, Stayed 10/03/2015
Ilikai Marina, Condo 992, Reservation #35752
This was the second stay at this apartment mainly due to closeness of Ala Moana Mall and some nice eateries nearby. The apartment was the same as when we there 12 months previously so all very familiar and added to our great stay on Oahu.... more Looking forward to another visit. less

The best bang for your buck in Waikiki
I have stayed in this building before in another condo through AlohaCondos.com and this is why I've come back. The building is situated in a very good location in Waikiki with very convenient parking and a great view of the marina and ocean. There is... more a Chart House with a great little bar, Red Lobster and Outback restaurant right downstairs. The Hotel Modern, Ilikai Hotel and Morimoto Restaurant is connected to this building by a walkway. A McDonald's, ABC store, and bus stop are conveniently located within a 5 minute walk. There is no pool here but you have the Hilton Lagoon (which is owned by the city of Honolulu at your disposal) and the beach is only a few minutes walk away. The condo itself was comfortable but the kitchen was a little dated but functional. Just bring a little extra soap, body wash, shampoo, lotion AND toilet paper as the owner only provides you enough (same amount you'd get in a hotel room daily) for a day or two. Just saying this as things are expensive in Hawaii. But to be fair, there were 2 beach chairs, towels and portable cooler for our use. There is a nice laundry room which cost $2.00 per wash and $2.00 per dryer, so bring quarters. You'll get a great view of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Friday firework display from your lanai. This is place is priced very reasonably for what you can expect to pay for something smaller without a view in Waikiki, go for it! less
— CART101, Stayed 07/08/2015
Another great stay ...
This was the second time we stayed at the Ilikai Marina Condos and again were more than pleased with our accommodation. The location is ideal for those shopping expeditions you simply have to do. Transport is so handy and the beach just minutes by foot... more away. The view from the marina view condos are great. I have recommended the condos to a few folk I know are visiting Hawaii and will definitely stay again next year. less

Aloha, Thank you for taking the time to post a wonderful review for the unit 790 at the Ilikai Marina. It certainly is a perfect location right in the middle of all you want or need. As you mentioned the views are something special and the sunsets are what memories are made of. We hope you do come back sometime in the future and thank you for your referrals to friends and family! Aloha and Mahalo, Kristen J. Greene PHD, Owner Vacation Realty Hawaii and Greene Guest Services
This was our 3rd time at the Ilikai Marina and 1st time at condo 992...and its become our favorite unit there! So much so, we've already booked our next stay! The view is gorgeous, the room is beautifully decorated and its the most relaxing place... more to come home to after a long day at the beach. Everything you could possibly want is within walking distance, no need for a rental car unless you want to explore the island, which we did for one day. We highly recommend this beautiful condo! less

I was a bit disappointed when I discovered that we were further away from Waikiki Beach than I had expected, until I opened the door to the unit and looked through the glass door over the boats in the marina to the ocean beyond. The... more unit contained everything that we needed. A bonus was being able to sit on the small balcony to watch the fireworks. You could take a short walk to the right and come to a beautiful beach with a great walking area OR you could take an even shorter walk to the left and reach another beach with a good walking area. Plenty of restaurants in that area or you can hop a bus to go to Waikiki Beach. the unit even had beach chairs. the owner was fantastic in communicating with us prior to our arrival. There is a sister hotel just across the walkway. You can check your luggage there for three dollars if you have an early arrival or a late departure. We had a perfect week and would return to that unit in a heartbeat. less

Aloha, Thank you for your great review! We are always so happy to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay and are wanting to come back again. The location is perfect and the beach to the left is Waikiki Beach as it borders the Hilton. Waikiki beach extends on down the coastline for about a mile or more but that is the beginning. The Marina does give a wonderful view and the ocean beyond. Thank you for booking with us!
This unit is a potential to be a nicer condo.
We are very disappointed on how dirty, unclean, and unmaintained this condo was on our arrival. The kitchen, bathroom, and floors were not cleaned enough. However, IIikai Marina is conveniently located to Waikiki, Ala Moana shopping center, and has a nice view of harbor, fireworks,... more and sunsets. This condo could be much more comfortable and welcoming if it were at the very least maintained and cleaned properly. less

Aloha, Thank you for posting your review of the unit 992 at the Ilikai Marina. We do try very hard to maintain each unit with a high standard of cleanliness and a presentable condition. We certainly hope you called, allowing us to respond to your concerns while you were there and rectify any situation that might have been of concern. We understand that you found the location to be convenient to everything and you were even able to enjoy the fireworks that were presented on Fridays nights at the Hilton and the incredible views! Thank you for your business. Aloha and Mahalo
Great place to stay
Very nice condo in good shape. The view from both windows and the lanai is amazing. You can see the Friday night beach fireworks from the lanai which is awesome. Very quiet and felt less "touristy" than staying in a hotel.

Good location at the Marina
A nice apartment with the basic needs for the economy traveler. Safe, clean and well-located. Has a great view of the marina and is just a short walk from the mall and the beaches of Waikiki.

Convenience and Value
Bright and conveniently located near the Ala Moana Mall. Lots of restaurants nearby (try Morimito's next door and the Cream Pot for fantastic breakfasts, Lapperts for ice cream) overlooking the harbor and wonderful view of sunsets. Appreciated the mats for the beach along with a... more cooler bag and the beach chairs, hair dryer and curling iron. Comfortable king bed with great sheets. Quiet. Parking extra but reasonable with in and out privileges. Pictures are accurate. Just need a few more wine glasses (only one) to make watching the sunset with friends perfect. less

A Gem of a Place
This unit was absolutely terrific, the location , the design and view from the unit! My husband, our 16 year old son and I were thrilled with this condo! We were in walking distance to all the action: restaurants, ocean walkway, my son's surfing lessons... more on Waikiki, the bus line to Pearl Harbour , Diamond Head etc. I was very pleased with the organiztion of the booking and the constant update emails about our payments and a detailed outline of procedures. The orientation of this condo gave amazing views of the harbour , the ocean and beautiful sunsets! Thank you to the owners for the opportunity to utilize their place, you definitely made our Hawaii holiday a success! less

Comfortable and clean
We stayed 5 nights July 13-17. Very comfortable and roomy. Room and view as pictured on advertisement. No disappointments. Beach accessories are provided like beach mat, boogie board and beach chairs and a beach cooler which we gladly used on our stay there. There is... more no pool in this building but the ocean beach is a 5 minute walk. All kitchen needs provided. The only thing I recommend is to add a new style blender for making smoothies and drinks. There is an older blender there but I think its a much older style from the 80s, but did not use it. Overall, this is a great condo, I would recommend it to anyone including my friends and family. less

Great place to stay with fantastic location!
My group stayed for a week and we really enjoyed it. It's in a great location and the parking garage was very convenient, although you should factor in an extra $20 a day or $40 for a holiday. The room itself was very nice and... more the couch that converts to a bed was actually great. Very comfortable. The AC did seem to run worse as we week went on but it wasn't ever too uncomfortable. All and all it was a great place for a very excellent price, and I'd stay there again in a heart beat. less
— Auntiem630, Stayed 07/10/2014
Aloha and Mahalo for your recent stay with us. We truly appreciate your comments and hope we can make future stays more enjoyable because of them. Building maintenance does quarterly A/C checks and they have filled up the freon, alleviating any air issues. In addition, monthly parking passes are $115 so if you are staying over a week , this is a great option! Aloha, Kristen J Greene PhD Owner, Vacation Realty Hawaii LLC
Perfect family holiday
Our first overseas holiday with our 15th month old baby girl. It was perfect! The condo had everything we needed. Was a great location for walking to Waikiki or to Ala Moana. Only thing with the condo was not being able to have the door... more open, as we didn't feel it was safe for our daughter to go out there. Would be great if it had a screen door. less

Great location, great value near Waikiki!
We stayed in this unit 3 nights from February 27th, 2014, until March 2nd. We had stayed in this same building back in 2011 but in a different unit. This unit was very clean, well kept, plenty of room for my husband and I (we... more slept in the bedroom) and my sister who slept on the pullout couch in the living room. The unit looks out on the ala Wai marina below, and is right next to Waikiki Beach. Short walk to ala Moana mall, there is an aBC store just across the street, great location from which to walk the length of Waikiki Beach and explore the entire area. Many choices for restaurants (the Chart House is on the lower level of this building and had good food, if a bit pricey, and a Red Lobster is also in the same building)and bars within walking distance. On Friday night we sat on the balcony drinking wine and watched the fireworks over the beach which the Hilton puts on every Friday night. We even happened upon a camera crew filming an episode of Hawaii 5-0 in the bar on the beach at the Hilton Hawaiian Village just a couple minutes walk from our condo. And the price can't be beat for a location this close to Waikiki! less

A relaxing no hassle holiday
Nicely appointed apartment overlooking the marina with a short walk to the beach and lagoon. Everything we needed was available and in good condition. Very handy to ala Moana Mall and the numerous aBC stores. The Red Lobster on the corner is a nice restaurant... more with lovely seafood. Also a great little noodle shop in the Hilton Hawaian Village with highly recommended Gyozas. Bus stops to and from the arizona Memorial (Bus 42 and 20) go right there are close to the apartments. The only downside was the early Saturday and Sunday morning (1am-3am) gathering of teens along the Marina Front which became quite noisy. There was a small problem with the toilet flush which was quickly dealt with by the local manager Valerie who was always easy to reach. However would stay in this apartment on our next visit if available. less

The perfect floor plan
My husband and I stayed in this condo for a two week vacation. The furnishings were very well placed, especially the table and chairs near the kitchen counter that made serving easy. We had friends in for dinner a few times and it was a... more perfect arrangement. The condo is bright and the furniture is comfortable - top quality rattan. Liked the long sofa too where my husband could stretch out as he is taller than average. The sliding door to close off the bedroom from the living room was a real plus in the evenings. Access to the bathroom from two directions saves many steps and allows access to both bedroom and kitchen.Lots of drawers in the bedroom. The kitchen is well equipped. We needed a new can opener and the staff provided a new one within the hour. Grocery shopping is a short walking distance away and instructions for that are included on a sheet on the back of the entrance door, along with other pertinent information. Basic toiletries were provided - very appreciated. The water views made this location perfect and walking over to the lagoon and surrounding area was so pleasant. This condo building is carefully maintained. We recommend it highly. Joyce less

Great Condo-Best View of Marina in Hawaii
We totally enjoyed the stay, the condo is in the best loacation. Great sunsets and sunrises over the water with it's boats and ships. Wonderful bed, very comfy. Place was clean as a whistle.

A home away from home
The condo was bright and cheery. The view was spectacular. I was surprised that the bed was a waterbed which I got used to quickly. The kitchen was well equipped. Everything was very nice except that it was hard to read or have an enjoyable... more dinner after the sun goes down. It needs a dining light over the table and one more standing lamp in the bedroom on the window side. Thank you for the nice unit. less

My husband and I have just spent two weeks at this condo. It was absolutely fantastic. The location is superb and the view spectacular. We overlooked the Marina. It was quiet at night, even more so if you closed the Lanai door and put on... more the ai rconditioning. The condo was great. Could definitely have done with a dishwasher and more tea towels but that seemed minor in the big picture. Bed linen could have been up-graded a little but it was definitely clean. Would we return to this condo? You bet we would. It would be our first choice for sure. The only downside was a lack of wine glasses!!! Very important to us wine drinkers....

Amazing view for a great price
We stayed in Condo 992 for 7 nights in Nov/Dec - what an amazing view! Even after a week staying there I couldn't believe what a great view it was. The condo was the perfect size for the 2 of us and it was really... more useful having the free wifi. The Ilikai Marina was the perfect location for us- 10 minutes walk to the main part of Waikiki one way, 10 min walk to ala Moana centre the other way. There is a great little bar downstairs ($1.50 beers during happy hour!), and it is only a couple of minutes walk to the lagoon and beach. The are 3 restaurants downstairs, and aBC Store, McDondalds, Subway etc across the street. We have already booked to come back to Hawaii in June we loved it that much, and will definitely be staying in the Ilikai Marina again, and would happily recommend it to friends. less
— Felicity, Stayed 12/30/2013
The location was convenient for our needs. We were visiting family and friends. Abc store was across the street with many restaurants to pick from. The room was spacious with full kitchen; the balcony was very small. There was a "no shoe" policy but the... more hardwood floor was vacuumed and not mopped so our white socks turned dirty every time we took off our shoes. There was toilet paper and tissues to last couple days and we had to buy supplies from the aBC store. Security was good and it was quiet and relaxing. Condo could have been updated with newer TV as it was fuzzy. But all in all, the room was comfortable with nice arrangement. The bathroom was small and the space between toilet and shower cramped. No big deal. We would probably return to this condo and recommend it to others. less

Great Oceanfront Value!
This condo is very comfortable and well equipped, including beach chairs, beach mats, a boogie board, insulated cooler bag, kitchenware, etc. The sofabed is the most comfortable one I've ever seen. For guests who are looking for a great oceanfront value, and would rather sit... more on the beach than at the pool (there is no pool in this building), this is just the ticket. less
— Sue, Stayed 10/11/2013
Great location and fabulous views
The apartment is excellent and looks over the Ilikai Marina with views of Magic Island and downtown Honolulu. Views from the Lanai of the sunsets were fantastic and it is the perfect place from which to watch the Hilton's Friday night fireworks. Although slightly away... more from Waikiki beach the apartment is only about 10 minutes' walk to the shops and restaurants of Waikiki and public transport by bus is very good in Honolulu/Waikiki. There is a pub and a separate excellent restaurant in the lower floors of the building. The whole process of booking and gaining access couldn't have been easier. Communications were excellent (which is important if you're booking from abroad). There was no problem with waiting to meet anyone for a key exchange because there is an access code. This is very useful if you arrive early in the morning. The apartment is well furnished and the only reason I have not given 5 stars is that the bathroom could do with a little bit of a facelift. It is a good size and functions perfectly, but looks a little tired. All in all a wonderful place and time and I highly recommend Ilikai Marina Condo 992. less

Perfect location, Cool, Cozy Condo!
It was so nice to take a walk amongst the boats, to watch the surfers, to nearby restaurants or the short walk over to the fabulous ala Moana Mall. Then back to our quiet, cozy condo with one of the best views in Waikiki. I'm... more picky about beds and the king size bed was very comfortable and the air-conditioning worked great at all settings. The kitchen was stocked with all of the necessary cooking implements. The condo does sit above some night-life establishments so there was a little nighttime street noise, but not excessively. We'll definetley be returning to this condo in the future. less

Great place, even better location. Beautiful view, all you need to get started. Pick up some supplies at the Food Pantry or Foodland (walkable) and you're set. Or drive to Don Quijote. Breakfast at the Harbor Pub and dinner and music at the Chart House.... more Take advantage of the beach chairs and mats and go down tot he lagoon or beach. Very comfortable and quiet.

We spent a week at the Ilikai unit 992. The condo is a 1 bedroom with a slider to close off the Bedroom from the living room so it worked beautifully with our Grand Daughter sleeping on the large sofa ( more than adequate for... more a large adult) The condo was a bit dated but clean and well maintained. The condo has great views of the Marina and is within an easy walk to the lagoon and ocean side. We had several meals at the Chart House which is in the building and was a great location for watching the Fri fire works. (make a reservation and request a lanai table. Overall a great vacation ! less

Clean, spacious...fantastic views
Considering that we spent an additional fifty bucks one night earlier at an airport hotel that promised much but delivered little, there was a collective,audible sigh of relief as we first entered 992.Clean hardwood floors and an immediate and expansive view of the marina and... more the ocean greeted us. The kids were impressed with the chocolate kisses left on the bed for us - a very large, comfortable bed one should add. The wall mirrors seemed to amplify the space and doubled the splendor of the view.The furnishings were simple, elegant and comfortable. The Ilikai Marina as others have noted is somewhat dated however everything functions well and the staff we met were friendly and helpful. To be fair I should mention that the lanai is indeed very small - it would probably seat four medium sized pigeons quite comfortably -however it almost seems churlish to point this out given that our overall experience here was so positive. The location is excellent and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone. In fact I would return here without question...someone invite me please ;-) Aloha. less

We loved our stay!
Aloha! Condo 992 was a great home away from home for our stay in Waikiki. Very comfortable, clean and nicely decorated with views of the boat harbor, Ala Moana park, beach and gorgeous sunsets. We enjoyed having breakfast on the lanai each morning and watching... more the sun go down in the evenings. It was nice surprise to find the beach chairs and cooler bag which we used everyday while swimming and snorkeling. Nightly strolls on the beach were a must since it is so close. Convenient location to shopping and restaurants. This was our 2nd time staying at the Ilikai Marina and we wouldn't choose to stay anywhere else. Already thinking about next years vacation and hoping that we will be able to reserve this condo again. Mahalo! less

Everything we had hoped for!
This condo was perfect for our stay in Honolulu! It has wonderful views, very spacious, full kitchen, beach towels and toys and chairs. It is a little bit dated, but we didn't mind one bit and fulfilled all of our needs. It is walking distance... more to everything (beautiful beaches, restaurants, nightlife, markets, etc), But if you need a cab they were usually located right outside. We would definitely recommend this condo and would love to stay there again in the future! less

Great Waikiki marina view unit for the price!
Our family enjoyed our stay in condo #992. The view is spectacular and we had a great spot to watch the neighboring Hilton Hawaiian's Friday night fireworks - and got a special treat to the July 4 ala Moana fireworks (it was like the show... more was just for us)! The kitchen was roomy and had all the essentials we needed. We would have liked having a dishwasher. Our children found the pull-out bed comfortable but linens a bit worn. The bathroom was fine but a little dirty & dated. We especially appreciated the beach toys, etc. These condos are very much lived in, so there were some pungent cooking smells coming from the hallway into the unit. This was mostly alleviated by opening the sliding glass door, however, I was bothered by the smell when it got too hot and we had to close the door to run the a/c. I also noticed a stale smell anytime we entered the unit after it had been closed up for a few hours. I will add that I do tend to have a very sensitive sense of smell and nobody else was bothered by this. The unit is very close to the beach - you can walk over the sky bridge on the 2nd floor to the Modern hotel, then take the walkway from the Ilikai next door to the lagoon and beach. The only other downside was the parking. We knew and expected to pay $20 per day for parking, however, on July 5, the garage ran a $10 for 10 hour "special,” which they charged us extra for, even though we never moved our car! They claimed this was their standard procedure that that they even charged condo residents the extra amount. This is a very unfriendly policy and one I think the rental owners should subsidize. I would like to add that the onsite caretaker for this unit was great to work with and was very responsive. All in all, it's a great unit for the price - you get a roomy place in downtown Waikiki with a spectacular view that won't break the bank. I would definitely consider staying here again. less

We completly enjoyed our stay at Ilikai Condo 992. It was in a great location and was fairly priced compared to other places.

Great Price Even Better Views
We have stayed at the Ilikai Marina 7 times over the last 5 years. The location is excellent and the prices are always great for Waikiki. In the past we have chosen the studio units that face ala Moana Blvd., but this trip we decided... more to upgrade to the one bedroom unit facing the harbor. Much quieter and loved the extra space. My husband works in Hawaii so he goes to bed a little earlier than myself, loved being able to close off the bedroom with the sliding wall divider. Never heard a peep from any other neighbors. Plus you cannot beat the views and food at the Charthouse restaurant on the first floor. This place is a hidden gem. less

condo was okay, priced right
Had access issues, owner gave us the wrong code to get in, and owner also advised us that keys would be inside and there were no keys.

Beautiful Sunset, Great Location, Watch Firework from Balcony
I originally booked a double queen bed room from Ilikai Hotel. After I found out this reasonable priced condo with living room, kitchen and view, I immediately booked this one and canceled the other. I was skeptical until the minute I stepped into the condo.... more Wow!!! What a beautiful sunset and ocean view! We couldn't believe our luck. We also enjoyed a magnificent firework show at the balcony right in front our eyes. Our applauding scream was echoed by the horns from boats and cars near and far at the end of the show. felt like celebrating New Year Eve. Btw, the firework show is from Hilton on every Friday night. One more tip, my husband found free parking space on the street. However, be very cautious. My brother couldn't find his car after he finished dinner at China Town. He paid his ransom, including taxi, fine and towing fee to get the car back. To make it short, My family had a wonderful time staying here. The suite is comfortable and of good size. I highly recommend this rental and will definitely come back again. less

A touch of paradise
The Ilikai Marina is well-located with convenient parking, ABC mart for groceries close by, restaurants when one doesn't want to cook, walking paths along the marina, the park, and the lagoon. We had a rental car and, with the exception of the security checks for... more the apec conference, had no problem getting around in the city. The ala Moana shopping mall is near as is the Hilton Hawaiian Village and several other hotels and businesses. Our condo was great! It was very clean, had a wonderful king-sized bed, lovely furniture, immaculate wood floors, convenient kitchen with a granite countertop, and best of all a front row view of the harbor and ocean; watched the sunsets every evening. Service for parking, parcel deliveries, etc. was excellent. I recommend this residence to a single person or a couple wanting to visit Honolulu with flexibility. We decided to return here on our next visit. Highly satisfied customers. less

Great view, great vacation, condo is dated
This condo is close to two nice beaches, great restaurants (reasonable breakfasts in building Harbor Pub) and is centrally located. The view is fantastic of the marina, ocean and sunsets. We could see a fair on the park point light up at night with the... more sun going down behind it. The one bedroom condo is well layed out but parts are dated (built in the 60's). The kitchen is fine with all the neccessary utensils. The livingroom couch is uncomfortable to sit on (never tried it as a pullout bed). Other chairs are fine. No golf channel on TV and took two days to figure out how to remove "Closed Captions". Living room needs a area rug as floor is hard and cold. Worst part of condo was the bathroom. It was dirty when we arrived and had to call cleaning service to clean tub/shower and give us some face cloths and a second hand towel. There was only 3 bath towels for our 6 day stay and no bath matt. The tub did not drain properly but found the plunger and it helped. There are no laundry facilities. The cost was reasonable until you added the $20/night parking (which we were told was $17/night) less

We appreciate your feed back as we strive to provide excellent service. We wish to provide some facts. There is a laundromat in The Ilikai Marina on the 8th floor. It is coin opertated so need to bring quarters and soap. The futon sofa is brand new and it came from a high end furniture store in Honolulu. It turns into a Queen size bed. The wood flooring is also brand new. Carpeting and rugs are a second choice in vacation rentals because hard flooring is much more sanitary. 992 has received continuous upgrades and replacements. All units are cleaned by a professional housekeeping company after every check out. Two complete sets of towels( bath, hand, wash cloth and beach towels) are standard set up per Guest. A local contact phone number is provided for our Guests and we respond immediately to any Guest concerns.
Great value with a fantastic view!
We stayed one week at condo #992. Owner was helpful in getting the payments completed prior to arrival. Great king bed, kitchen, and amenities. Fantastic view of marina and ala Moana surf spot. The coffee pot quit on second day. But after calling the manager... more we had a new one within a day. Downside is the funky carpeting in the hallway. But that's probably a building ownership issue. Also the keyless entry was different. But once we got it we liked it. Also missed having a mini clothes washer and dryer in room. But the complex has several pay washers and dryers on the 8th floor. less

Fantastic location for the value
It was a perfect location for us and well set up with the basics for our holiday. It was easy to get provisions from the ala Moana centre which was only about 10 minutes walk away. The bus system around this island also allowed us... more to explore nearby and the whole island for about 6 dollars each a day if you buy the 4 day bus pass. The biggest problem is that the unit smelt really bad and the only way we could put up with it was leaving the windows and sliding lanai door open all the time we were in the unit. Also the wirelss internet was so inconsistent that it became a real problem to stay online for any period of time. If these two problems were fixed it would have been perfect for us!!! less

Hallways were dark and univiting. For the first two weeks one of the residents left their door open when cooking as well as the Exit door was propped open. Very distasteful odours in the hallway from their condo when cooking. This however was rectified after... more we mentioned to Kat. The condo was very clean however the condo was "tired" and needs to be renovated. The lanai was too small for our liking. We did like the bedroom seperate from the living room.Our concerns were dealt with when we called. Overall a nice stay at the condo. less

Clean Condo with Great View
If you want to be near Waikiki but don't like crowded beaches this is a good location as you can walk over to Ala Moana Park which has a great beach and is never crowded during the week. The kitchen of the condo was fully... more equiped with cutlery, utensils, and appliances, with one exception. We took all our meals in the condo and a dishwasher would have been a welcome appliance. (I hate doing dishes) The shopping cart provided was a very helpful extra. less

Needs some work...
Nice unit, great view. The plastic liner on the pull out bed was low quality, even our 4-yo daughter complained about it. The carpeting is pretty worn. It would have been nice to have housekeeping come in after the 7th day to do the towels/sheets.... more This was done for another unit we stayed in the previous year. We stayed a total of 13 days. The shower was a little dingy. This end of the building is subject to street noise from people outside of the restaurant below. less

We appreciate the feedback. The carpeting is always washed on a normal basis and should not be a problem. We have not heard any complaints about the plastic liner on the pull out bed but will look into it. Interim cleanings are schedule at the guest's convenience. Just give us a call and we will let cleaning know to come in. I'm sorry the street noise was too much for you to bear but usually the noise isn't bad at all and does not cause a disturbance. Thanks again for the feedback!
Close to everything
Everything about the experience was turnkey. Received outstanding instructions when reserving and again prior to arriving. Great view and layout but could use a new mattress in Master Bedroom and updated bathroom. Would definitely rent again.

Great spot, top value
We spent our last 5 days in Hawaii here, and would highly recommend it. Great views, an easy walk to Ala Moana shopping and International Marketplace. The apartment was well provisioned with all the little things you need. Onsite laundry was very handy as well.

Gem in Ilikai Marina
I recently had the pleasure of staying at this condo at the Ilikai Marina. First off, the view was fantastic, right alongside the Ilikai Marina with the clear blue waters of Waikiki to the left. After a long day of trekking around Oahu, sitting out... more on the private patio overlooking the marina was a great end to a day. The condo is centrally located at convenient distances from both the Ala Moana center and Waikiki, but still very quiet and peaceful in the evenings. The condo itself is very clean and well-kept with spacious and bright rooms. The wireless internet was very convenient for scouting out the day's activities. I didn't have a chance to take advantage of the surprisingly large kitchen, but it was a great plus to the condo's amenities. All in all, an amazing find and I would definitely would return a second time and recommend to friends. less

nice for the price
pretty nice view. close to beach and shopping mall. It would be perfect if you can get a higher floor.

Value with a View
THE VIEW IS SPECTACULAR. There is an excellent restaurant right downstairs. The place is easy to find, and conveniently located between Ala Moana (main shopping area) and Waikiki (main tourist beach). Good location and value for a vacation in Honolulu. The kitchen is a nice... more one if you have to cook. Only thing is that that parking fees are quite high. You can consider street parking, abundant close by. Finally, the check-in procedure, or the lack thereof, is nice and smooth on first and last day - saves a lot of time. less
