The best thing about staying at The Ilikai is that is has a resort feeling with a beautiful open air lobby that includes the popular open air restaurant/bar Cinnamon’s and Aroma Cafe serving top notch Coffee. The building has Hotel rooms, Time Share units and privately owned condos such as ours. There is a Bell Desk that is serviced 24/7 so there is always someone to take your luggage or groceries from the car for a small tip. Did you know The iconic Ilikai was featured in the original Hawaii Five-O legendary TV shows in 1960s? You can see it in the opening credits of the show when McGarrett stands on the lanai of the Ilikai's magnificent penthouse. The Ilikai was also used prominently as a back drop for many scenes in the series that ran for 12 years. The new Hawaii Five-O Series also places McGarrett atop the Ilikai and the same penthouse lanai!

Every Friday and Tuesday nights there is a FREE Hula show in the lobby of The Ilikai and on Friday nights there is also a Fireworks show put on by the Hilton Hawaiian Village which can be seen clearly from the Pacific Terrace of the Ilikai where the Hula Show takes place. Don’t miss Friday night at The Ilikai!

Beautiful Waikiki Beach is just off the Pacific Terrace of The Ilikai. From the terrace you will find a ramp taking you to the swimming lagoon and just on the other side is Waikiki Beach. There are many water activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boards surfing and water cycling. There is also the Ala Moana Beach Park just a short walk away which is where the locals go…you won’t find any shops or restaurants there just natural beach and ocean. You may also prefer the Ilikai pool where relaxing lounge chairs await you. There are showers and changing areas in the bathrooms at the pool for your convenience (sometimes they come in handy if arriving earlier than check-in time or staying past check-out time). There is also a SPA in the lobby where you can book massage or facials with top notch service.

You will find our mountain/city View view condo very clean and well organized. The unit was completely renovated in 2007. It is on the 6th floor and the building has 5 modern elevators plus a Bather’s Elevator so you won’t have to worry about tracking sand in from the beach or carrying your surfboard on the main elevators. The kitchen is well equipped with range, full size fridge with ice-basket, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, rice cooker, pots & pans, dishes, glasses, cups, mugs and some other utensils. We always leave a clean sponge along with a supply of paper supplies for each guest. You will find state of the art TVs in the main living room as well as the master bedroom. The second bedroom has a pull out wall to close it off from the dinning and living room area. It can be made up as 1 King bed or 2 Twin beds and has an adjoining bathroom which can be accessed from the hallway as well. The master bedroom has it’s own private bathroom. The 2 bedrooms are situated on opposites sides of the 1,000 sq ft condo (plus 2 Lanais) for maximum privacy. The living room also has a queen sleeper sofa totaling the sleeping arrangements for up to 6 guests. Both bathrooms are full bathrooms with shower facilities and the master bathroom also has a tub. You will find individually wrapped soaps in the bathrooms, plenty of towels for bath or beach (pool towels are at the pool) and hairdryers.

There is a state of the art air conditioning system in the main room and in the master bedroom to keep you cool on warm nights but generally there is a beautiful breeze that you can enjoy just by opening the lanai sliding doors.

New easy to keep clean engineered hardwood flooring was installed throughout the unit in Nov 2014 (although some of the photos still show the carpeting).

FREE WiFi is ready for your use in the condo as well as in the lobby of the Ilikai. You will find the instructions on our “Welcome Letter” upon arrival.

A keyless entry system allows you to check-in with just a code and there is no chance of loosing keys. However, my mother, Joan Cote, lives in the building and is available if you need an assistance.

There are numerous restaurants and shops in the immediate area and beyond from the Diamond Head side of Waikiki to the Ala Moana Shopping Center all within walking distance or a short bus or taxi ride. The Hawaii Convention Center is just a short walk away.

Taxi’s are always available in front of the Ilikai and city buses are inexpensive and easy to use. Parking is only included on monthly rentals (from the 1st to the 31st) but there is convenient parking available for $28 per 24 hour period with valet or self-parking options. We recommend our guests rent a car for just 1 or 2 days so see other parts of Oahu. There are several rental car agencies in the immediate area including Advantage Car Rental in the lobby of The Ilikai.

There are coin-operated washer and dryers just down the hall and a supply of laundry detergent is left in the condo for your use should you need to wash cloths during your stay.

You will find our rates very reasonable for the market. We also offer 1/2 days rates of you want to check-in earlier than 2pm or stay later than 11am on the day of check-out.

All housekeeping in covered by the cleaning fee so you only have to lock the door behind you when leaving. The condo is professionally cleaned after every check-out.

There is a high-chair and a play pen for families with babies.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay at this condo. It was so perfect for our family and we felt completely at home. The condo was spacious and clean and had absolutely everything we needed. The location was perfect and was close to the ocean, swimming pool and the Lagoon too. The views from the balconies are nice and the beds are very comfortable. I will definitely stay here again and tell all of my friends about Christy and Joan's condo. Christy and Joan were very easy to communicate with and the booking process was very simple. Joan made us feel welcomed when we arrived. I will never stay in a hotel again after staying here. Thanks again ladies!!

The Ilikai

  • 5 of 5
We were extremely happy to arrive on the island and find the condo suite as advertized, and more. Christy and Joan showed us just the right mix of helpfulness and privacy.
The location allowed us access to the Waikiki strip and all of it's shopping, dining and sights of interest. The Hilton lagoon and beach, only a short stroll from the Ilikai, were a perfect combination that we relished daily(including three fire work shows).
Also, I must say, we did almost all our vacation using "The Bus". To sum it all up, my wife & two boys( 5 & 17) would do it all again in a heartbeat.

Mahalo, Stuart.

Perfect Hawaiian Condo

  • 5 of 5
As an experienced traveller, I was extremely impressed with everything from my first contact with Christy though to arriving and enjoying the condo. The condo has everything you'd have at home. You just have to stock the fridge! I stayed with my sister and we loved having a room and bathroom each! I love shopping and was pleased that the Ilikai is a maximum 10 minute walk down the road. The Ilikai is next to the Hawaiian Hilton Village so you can enjoy a variety of restaurants and bars. The pool is lovely but get there before 11am to get your spot! There is a car rental place across the road. The trolley and bus stop out the front is very handy. A lovely 15 minute walk to the main shops in Waikiki. All in all I highly recommend staying here!

Ilikai Condo

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I rented the condo for a week in September as a vacation getaway from our busy schedules. From the beginning, Christy was very kind and patient with answering all my questions. Upon arriving in Hawaii, Joan was just as welcoming, allowing my group to take our time getting our car rental and parking passes situated.

The condo itself was very clean and spacious. When we walked into the condo and looked out the windows, we almost thought there was no glass in between. The city view was actually very gorgeous at night and allowed for some wonderful pictures. In the morning, we were also able to see the sunrise peak out from behind some mountains and buildings. One of my girlfriends loved the balcony view and even did yoga there because it was so nice.

The location was also prime because we were near many attractions. The Hilton lagoon was conveniently right behind the condos and was a few minutes walk, as was the beach. There were stores and restaurants right outside and across the streets in case we needed some amenities or a quick snack. Unfortunately, we missed the Friday fireworks as we had a luau scheduled that night, but it just means we'll have to come back again. :)

Would definitely recommend this place in the future!

What a wonderful world Ilikai

  • 5 of 5
Arriving after an all night flight to Christy & Joans condo was like arriving home.Warm welcoming and comfortable.
The condo was just perfect for our month holiday. My wife likened it to her childhood memories of family beach side holidays. Joan and Christy are the perfect hosts who are only to egar to help in any way to make your stay as pleasurable as possible.
We holidayed with our cousins (4 Adults in total ) and the condo just worked so well, plenty of room and always a comfortable breeze to cool the condo down ,summer has never been so good!
We would recommend this condo to anyone !!!
We are over 55's and enjoyed every minute.

Our stay at the Ilikai

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 12 and 14 year old daughters and I stayed at the Ilikai in July 2011. Christy was very easy to deal with and her mother, Joan, was very friendly and easy to contact in case we needed her.

The City view was not our first choice, but as we entered the unit, the view was actually breathtaking. The room was very spacious and had everything we needed. The markets were within walking distance as well as restaurants and beaches.

My daughters especially enjoyed the Hilton Lagoon which is very close by with brilliant fireworks on Friday nights. I can go on, but I will end with thank you, Joan and Christy. We hope to make it back to Oahu soon and will definitely want to stay at your place.

Owner's Response: Yes, the Hilton Lagoon (open to the public) is a great place for swimming and water sports. The Fireworks on Friday night are fantastic and FREE! You can just sit on the Pacific Terrace or have dinner in the restaurants and see the fireworks from there...especially nice if you are in the rooftop restaurant, Sorrentos!
