Ilikai 1818 - This is our second time staying at Ilikai and it didn’t disappoint. Firstly I want to thank our owner Mr Chen for agreeing to extend our credit from before Covid hit. Unit was clean and as described. 2 bed and a pull out lounge; loved having the kitchen so we could eat come meals at home. Massive balcony overlooking the beach and lagoon. Beds were comfy, bathroom adequate, shower just needed a little more pressure but was ok. Close to the lifts and laundry room which are now card activated.
Ilikai 1818 - Our fourth holiday at Ilikai through Waikiki Beach Rentals and again.....what a wonderful holiday. Such a pleasure to sit on the balcony watching the sea and the action - cruise ships, surfers, paddle boarders, container ships and much more. Looking forward to returning in April for the Hapalua and again booking at the Ilikai. Would love a unit where the TV just simply came on... but that is such a minor problem when holidaying in such a wonderful place. Thank you to the Condo owner and WBR. Patti
Ilikai 1818 - What a great holiday we had, the condo was perfect, had everything and we felt like we were in our own place. It was bigger than I thought. Great and safe idea with the press button security lock on the door. Ala Moana was just 10 minutes walk, waikiki was 20 minute walk, and the restaurants around were really lovely. Especially the Red Lobster, great food, price and staff were very friendly. Could not fault anything about this place. The view was perfect everyday, we had breakfast on the balcony every morning. The condo was sound proof as we didn't hear any noise inside only when we were on the balcony. Was very quiet late at night and great for sleeping. July is a great time to travel to Hawaii. I will be recommending this condo to lots of people. perfect- will be back. 2018
Ilikai 1818 - Our 2 week stay in march was a wonderful experience and the condo unit that we chose (#1818) was ideal. it would be truly difficult to find a better location for walking, beach activities, swimming or simply enjoying our lanai. the ilikai soon began to feel like home and we especially appreciated the ability to stay 'at home' rather than always dining out at the end of a busy day on the beach and in the surf. Should we do this again next year?......my wife says, "Book it, Dan-O"
We found Ilikai 1818 to be a wonderful condo for my wife & I. It is very well maintained and contains all the modern conveniences you will need. Great kitchen appliances, free wifi, good bathroom, comfortable bed AND a great view! You have the choice of swimming in the pool, lagoon or beach at your fingertips. There are plenty of local restaurants and cafes and for anyone of moderate fitness downtown Waikiki, with all its eateries and shops, is a pleasant stroll away. Don't forget to look out for turtles as you wander along the waterfront!
My wife and I stayed in Ilikai Unit 1818 for two whole weeks and loved every minute of it. Spacious, clean, lovely historical building (think Hawaii 50), fantastic location. Beautiful white bedding, plenty of white fluffy towels, great sized TV (if you ever sit still long enough to watch it). There is a laundry on every floor, a mini mart downstairs and a multitiude of shops and restaurants. The lanai is LARGE - perfect for pre-dinner drinks or simply sitting and enjoying the stunning view across Hiltons Lagoon and the ocean. A very easy walk to Ala Moana shopping centre as this unit is at the quieter end of Waikiki Beach right next to Hilton Hawaiian Village. The pictures are exactly what you get. No hassles, quiet all the time, easy to use entry to unit and great staff, We definitely recommend it - great value for money.
Hi ! We just got home after a superb vacation in Honolulu in unit 1818. The accommodation was a perfect fit for our needs. The room was clean, well appointed, with all the gadgets and tools we needed for the kitchen too. The view facing the lagoon and ocean was stunning & just as shown in the pictures. Entry to the unit was easy. The free long distance phone helped us stay in touch with family over the holidays. We are ready to book again! We had a fabulous time. No disappointments at all!
Just returned from a amazing 12 days stay at the Ilikai and want to thank Scott and his team. We were in Waikiki for a wedding and family and friends from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, UK and US including the bride and groom all stayed at the Ilikai. Most of us booked through Oceanfront Rentals who made the booking and stay seamless . Most of our needs were accommodated and we got late checkout in one of our units which really helped as our flight was not until 11.30 pm. The Keyless entry, free wi-fi, free calls to Canada and US together with all that we need to make our stay feel like home away from home was in each unit. The kitchen was well equipped for all meals . There were nights when we would cook for more than 10!!! Waking up to the beautiful view from our room was priceless. We watched surfers and whales at play. Friday nite's firework and watching the shows from the Hilton Luau from the comfort of your own lanai was a bonus. The beach and lagoon were clean and so easy to get to. The property was well maintained and beautiful. Everything was within walking distance. Happy hour at the Yard House. Shopping at Ala Moana Mall or International Market. We already have friends looking into this place for their vacation. More than 30 of us had nothing but praises about our stay at the Ilikai. Thank you
Thanks! Just want to say my family and I stayed at Ilikai Unit # 1818 and we had a fabulous time! The condo was clean and very open. The view is spectacular overlooking the beach and the pools. Surprise treat, we got to see the Luao show every night from our deck for free. It was walking distance to everything! The condo was clean when we arrived! The beds were comfortable,Location was perfect close to shops & restaurants. We had friendly service during our stay!
Greetings from Cape Cod. We are writing to tell briefly about our stay at the Ilikai over Thanksgiving. This was our first trip to HI. We stayed in unit 1818 and we were not disappointed. Everything was as or better than advertised. No bad surprises. The room was great, including the bath, kitchen, and TV. The beds were fine. The view is spectacular. We could see the kids below at the pool, out surfing at canoes or over at the lagoon. The staff was friendly, mellow and professional, and we were granted a delayed checkout to prepare for the long trip back to MA. We were able to bring our surfboards up to the room via the wet elevator without hassles. We've been burned before by renting what looked like great condos on the internet that turned out to be turkeys. The Ilikai is the real deal. We stayed the week of t-giving and had a blast. Don't hesitate. Concentrate on the other details of your trip, like spending the extra $$ on the bigger airline seats and your car rental, etc.
I must say that the trip was awesome. The condo we booked 1818, was wonderful. Everything we could have expected. The view was spectacular and exactly like the website showed. The entire stay at the Ilikai was great. We enjoyed the close proximity to the lagoon and the beach not to mention the restaurants and the shops. Thank you again for making our stay in Hawaii a great one. If the opportunity presents itself, I would go back to Hawaii and I would also use your site again. There were 11 of us staying in several of the condos and we all agreed that we would recommend you to all our friends/family etc.
