“An excellent choice for Waikiki”
Reviewed August 28, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed in Ilikai Apartment 1842 for ten days. We normally stay in hotels but given the length of stay we thought that an apartment would be more flexible and it turned out to a very good decision as it was more relaxed and we could self-cater when we wanted to.

The apartment is exactly as the photos and information showed. The outstanding feature is the great unobstructed view across the Hilton lagoon and beach to the ocean. One advantage is that the direct sun leaves the lanai in late morning so you can sit outside in the afternoon and evening without getting fried! It is a great place for lunch and dinner, the fireworks on Friday night (probably one of the best views in Waikiki) and checking out the Hilton luau performances across the street.

To be fair the apartment's décor and fittings are not the most up to date but everything works well. The king size bed is very comfortable, the WiFi is good, the shower works well and the appliances (those that we used) are fine. When we arrived the apartment was supplied with a starter kit, bed linen and towels.

The location of the Ilikai is great. Essentially on the beach yet not in the middle of the rather frenetic Waikiki area and walking distance to the Ala Moana Shopping Center, supermarkets and restaurants. There is an ABC superette across the street and we found two good supermarkets with walking distance - the Food Pantry in Eaton Square and Foodland Farms at the Ala Moana Center. They had everything anyone would need to self-cater.

The owners Hal and Nadine were great to deal with. They provided excellent information and advice before we arrived and payments and the security deposit refund were dealt with immediately.

All in all we were very pleased with the apartment and would be happy to return if we stayed in Waikiki again.

“Awesome rental experience”
Reviewed February 8, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The condo owner Hal was the easiest person to work with. This was the first time we have ever rented a condo. The unit was as promised the view was spectacular and the location was just right for us. We could get to any place on the island from shuttle service to city bus. The staff at the Ilikai was very helpful. The location to the beach was perfect walk down from the building and your on the ocean. You can walk the beach for miles. We put on 5-8 miles per day. There are many restaurants in the area from national chains to local cuisine. I would rent this location again with out hesitation.

My husband and I have just returned after spending 15 nights in this home away from home condo.The location is amazing with the beach on the doorstep. The website description is a 100% accurate with everything you need on hand. Booking with the owner was a pleasure and his love of the island of Ohau apparent. Access to the apartment (collecting the keys)is very well organised and secure. We found the condo to be very clean with a extra large bed and beautiful white sheets and fluffy towels.
This condo is centrally located which makes the whole island easily assessable with most buses(trolleys) picking up outside the hotel. The hotel itself is beautifully maintained with all staff friendly and helpful. There is a Hula show every Friday night in the courtyard with lovely Hawaiian music.
There are many fine reasturants in Wakiki to suit all budgets,I would recommend visiting Sarentos at the top of the Illikai which has beautiful views of the city and also Dukes and the Top of Wakiki which is a revolving reasturant. You must try Snappers across the street from the hotel owners are from Green Bay WI so excellent sports bar.
Car hire is not required as there are many well organised trips available.
All in all beautifull condo lovely weather and a warm Hawaian welcome worth every penny.
Thank you Hal and Nadine for renting your "grass shack" and sharing this piece of paradise with us.

Aloha Mary & Joe,
Thank you for your nice review and for the restaurant recommendations. Sarento’s and Top of Waikiki are our favorites. We also love Cinnamons at the Ilikai and the Wailana Coffee House for delicious breakfasts, and the Harbor Pub, just next door is also fun and reasonably priced.
Mahalo and we hope you will come back soon.

My wife and I had a great stay at this condo. It has everything you need. Great views. Free wifi, nice condo. The owners Hal and Nadine are very nice and helpful. We stayed for two weeks. Beach is very close. If you rent a car you can park it next door at the Illikai Marina parking garage. All the five star ratings are true. We looked at many places to stay however I kept circling back to this condo.We hope to be able to stay there again one day. Hello to Hal and Nadine.

Three and a half weeks of true delight, staying in an 18th level Condo with the most wonderful view gave us a holiday we will never forget. A spacious room with full kitchen and a huge Lanai made our stay very comfortable. The extra large king size bed can be closed off from the sitting area by a concertina screen door for privacy if needed.
The position of the Ilikai Condominiums is great, with pool, lagoon and beach just a short walk away. It is an easy beach walk to Waikiki, the main shopping area and especially Ala Moana Shopping Centre.

The owners Hal and Nadine made our booking and payment extremely easy and their pre holiday information was great. We would highly recommend this Condo for a wonderful holiday.

It was my first trip to Hawaii, and I could not have imagined much better place to stay other than at. this unit on 18th floor of Ilikai. The Ilikai is by now is an old building but very well maintained. It is at the western edge of Waikiki Beach with easy access and proximity to many shops and restaurants. Practically all tour companies make stops at the entrance.
The location of this unit on the 18th floor with ocean view though by angle is great, from the balcony you have marvellous views and can see the firework show while sitting there.

The unit is spacious, very well appointed, and maintained. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom of adequate size. There is a full equipped kitchen which I did not much use.
Seating area was comfortable with TV. There is also free wifi, and internet connection with good speed.

As impressive as the unit is, more impressive were the owners Hal & Nadine. Not only they responded very quickly to all communication, they were extremely well organized and meticulous, making my stay much easier with all the detailed info they provided and having all pre-prepared in the unit , I arrived after ours but getting the keys and into the unit was very easy..

My guess I was lucky to find this rental place as my first place to stay in Hawaii, I recommend it highly, and certainly would return if I had the chance to.

I could not have found a better condo for our money. The views were stunning. We had front row seats for the Friday night fire works. We were within walking distance of every thing you could possibly need..restaurants, ABC's....which have everything you need..Fashion Malls, gift stores, Ice Cream shop..yummy!!! Everything and anything. We walked to the Cheeseburger and it was a great atmosphere, the best burgers ever and awesome views. We would head back there any time. The city bus picked you up right in front of the Ilikia. If you want to do tours..we did four awesome tours..with Roberts Tours, they picked us up first, right in front of the Ilikia and we were dropped off first! The condo had amazing ocean views, the huge Lanai to have coffee, read, suntan, Google with the free wifi. The king sized bed and hide~a~bed were very comfortable. The full sized kitchen had everything you could need. We never used the laundry facilities or pool.(We could see the pool from the Lunai and everyone was enjoying).but they were there for us. Our plane was delayed to the early hours of the morning..one easy phone call and it was easy access to pick up the keys, hassle free. Hal and Nadine answered all of our questions and needs. They helped us decide the best way to and from the airport, tours and about car rentals..which we never rented because of our perfect location, we didn't need! I can't think of anything we could have used on our Heavenly Vacation, thanks to Hal and Nadine!!!
