Great value room with clean facilities and amazing view
Left on 06/21/2014 for a stay in June 2014 | Yi Z
The room was very nice. It was perfect for three people as there was a king bed and a sofa (however the fold out sofa was very old and uncomfortable, my mom just folded it in and slept on the "couch" portion). The kitchen and stove worked well, as did the dishwasher, fridge, and oven. Bathrooms were clean with extra towels provided. WIFI was fast enough.
This place is perfect if you know you're going to be out and about most of the day and will just be using the place to eat, sleep, and relax. The balcony and dinner table are perfect places to relax as the view is amazing. The place is a little small but you don't even notice because the right wall is completely covered in wall mirrors that reflect the ocean view making the place look and feel quite open.

Great view of sunsets

Really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. Kitchen well equipped and we appreciated the extras such as spices, cling-wrap etc which were a bonus.
View from the balcony was stunning and apartment was in close proximity to ala Moana centre, restaurants, beach etc.
Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed 8 days and enjoyed our stay. Between ala Moana and Waikiki, everything in walking distance and not noisy.
I go along with previous reviews concerning location, facilities, ..., kitchen well stocked, it is clean but some old spots on towels and blanket, should be replaced.
The overall rating (average) is because of the necessity of updating here and there (mattress, towel rack, blinds, sofa) but I recommend it. Read more
Mahalo for your stay and for your review. This property is now under new management. We began by having the carpets professionally cleaned, the pillows and towels replaced and the blinds repaired. We are working with the homeowners on updates throughout the condo in the coming months. We hope you will return to enjoy this property again.

Fantastic location and view. Good value for this prime spot.
Left on 01/26/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | Amy
We were delighted with the condo. Everything was as expected. Well managed and no false advertising. We did not need to contact anybody about anything because everything worked and condo was well stocked.
The reason I am rating the comfort as only average is that the hide-a-bed mattress was very saggy. Our roommate got a backache sleeping on it. Also the dishes were not great in the microwave and did not fit in the dishwasher properly. Everything else was excellent.
Fantastic - best condo in Ilikai Marina!!!
Left on 10/07/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | Nena
We vacation in Hawaii about twice a year to visit family. We love the Ilikai Marina, due to the location & floor plan. We have stayed at numerous condos in the Ilikai Marina, but this condo has been the best!!! It is beautifully decorated, completely stocked, super clean, and has everything you could possibly need. It is located on a higher floor, so has a terrific view of the ocean. We loved this condo, and will definitely stay at this one again! Aloha Condos was easy to book with, and we even received friendly emails from the owners. The location is at the beginning, and therefore more quiet end of Waikiki. It is within walking distance of ala Moana shopping center, and next door to the Ilikai and Hilton Hawaiian Village.

ever changing outlook

A very enjoyable stay of thirteen nights. Comfortable with ample space for two people. The mirrored wall really does give an expanded view (partially in reverse) with constantly changing water activity. Grandstand view of fireworks on Tuesday and Friday evenings. Kitchen is well equipped and convenient. Bathroom spacious with good shower and bidet seat. Bed very comfortable. Had no street noise problems during stay. Check in was simple - met alice who cares for condo - lovely person. Bus stops both east and west very handy.Beaches and supply stores easy walk.Only minor inconvenience was falling bathroom towel rails.
Room of splendid scenery
Left on 06/29/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Yoshihisa Ishida
It was a completely comfortable condominium!
The scenery to watch from a porch was very splendid.
The access to the beach was fairly convenient, too.
A lot of spaces were easy to use the loft for the parking lot.
I used the opposite side of the street aBC store several times in the middle of the night.
I write it down as follows when I am interested daringly.
There is the thing which a nail jumps out of to a seat part of the chair.
A sofa bed goes bad a little.
The electric bulb of the kitchen was able to cut one.
The smell of a considerably strong detergent did not come out of the room for a few days since I entered a room. Read more

A great place to relax after a long day
Left on 10/08/2009 for a stay in September 2009 | KT
The condo is perfect and has more than enough room
for a couple. It may feel a bit cramped with
additional people, though. The views are beautiful,
and the kitchen is well equipped (although we didn't
do much cooking, it was nice to have the option). The
bed is also super soft and comfy, and I loved having
the ample counter top space in the bathroom. Two
minor drawbacks: the shower isn't the most modern,
and the lanai is almost nonexistent. Neither of these
issues were that bothersome, however. I would
definitely stay in this condo again!

Great condo, nice and clean, with an incredible view! I've never had an unobstructed view of the ocean.....I could sit there and stare out the sliding glass door for hours!
The condo complex is nice and quiet, we never heard anyone else, and staying at a condo like this is so great because you don't get woken up by the housekeepers vacuuming and making noise. This condo is supplied with lots of things.....hairdryer (yeh!), vacuum, extra sheets, books on Oahu, a magnified mirror in the bathroom drawer.
Tips: You'll need $2 in quarters for each wash and dry. Bring your own detergent for laundry from home in a zip-loc bag....you'll save money and waste by not having to buy some there!
A few cons:
- The sofa bed is very uncomfortable.....it is impossible to sleep on due to bowing in the middle.....don't count on this as a sleeping option.
- The cost of parking at the condo is ridiculous, $17/day. The only other option is parking out near the marina, but it is metered and has time limits.
Overall, though, we were very happy with the condo, and would recommend. Wish we could own one just like it there!
Fantastic view, great help in time of need
Left on 09/13/2009 for a stay in August 2009 | Hattrick
We had gone online in search of a vacation rental for a week. All of the reviews we had seen were very positive, and our stay only reinforced that. It was a little confusing to find the building, but once there, using the lockbox to get in was extremely simple.
The view is incredible, and is definitely one of the selling points. The sunset over the water, combined with a glass of wine on the lanai is pure relaxation. The rest of the apartment is certainly very clean and well furnished, and we cooked several meals in the kitchen without problems.
On the second day of our vacation, our car was broken into (with our belonging in the trunk, with nothing visible inside the car) while we were on the beach at the north shore, and we lost our wallets and cell phones. The manager was just incredibly helpful at that stressful time, and even offered to lend us some money in the interim. She was very supportive, and helped in so many ways to get our vacation back on track. That was certainly above and beyond anything we had expected.
We will undoubtably stay at the condo the next time we return--the location, the furnishings, the view, and the hospitality are hard to beat.
Great oceanfront value!

This unit was clean, great location, fabulous view, and well equipped. It was a wonderful place to wake up in, and to come back to at the end of the day. We would hightly recommend it and would definitely come back again.

From the very beginning, Chuck was amazing! No detail was left out. Every amenity that could have been thought of, was. No detail was overlooked. We are looking forward to working with Aloha Condos again in the future. The unit was immaculate and the location was perfect, within walking distance to shopping, beaches, resturants. I highly recommend using this property!

This was the perfect place for me, as I was visiting our son & daugher-in-law & 6 month old grand daughter who live aboard in a boat in the marina below! Condo was very nice & clean.I was very pleased and hope to stay again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Ilikai. The room was just like the pictures. We loved the view, place was clean upon arrival, very nice decor. We would recommend this condo as well as Aloha Condos.com website. The only improvement we would suggest is the hideabed. It's day is done as a bed and as a couch. The whole experience with Aloha condos was positive and the room was great. We really liked the location.
Great location & Money Saver
Left on 04/17/2009 for a stay in February 2009 | TrailBunny
I own a timeshare, but decided to rent outside our company. We rented 2 condos. Found this place and line and jumped on the rental quickly. Pricing hotels, this was a much better deal. Being able to have even small meals kept the budget in check. Just the right size for 2, thought I guess some of the rentals do have a sleeper sofa.
2 things that I was a bit dissappointed with:
1. Towels...you get what you have and have to wash them during your stay. Not a huge deal
2. Laundry. I didn't see the sign for the times on the laundry room and got my loads locked up for the night.
Over all...I do recommend staying here and if we came to Honolulu in the future, I would rent here again

We always look for an apartment where we are not subject to Hotel timings & space limitations. We selected on line from quite a few options and were v. pleased with our choice: excellent view, comfortable yet high style design interior. Our sensation that the place might not be as spacious as it appeared on screen was unfounded. Good well managed space layout. Huge, maybe a little too soft, but v comfy bed. Though the bedroom did feel a bit claustrofobic when the sliding door was closed.
Any downsides? Yes, maybe - the a/c was not v. efficient and it was a bit un-nerving trying to fathom out how to get into the place when you 1st arrive & the so called security guard was zero help. Think that was the biggest negative - no help on the ground when you get there. And when you rang the number of the person who was meant to BE THERE FOR YOU, if needed, she was at best very distant and you felt you shouldn't have bothered her.
Otherwise, really pleased with our choice & the stay. And this was one exceptionally well equipped Condo. Enjoyed it enormously.
Great Condo !

A home away from home.
Left on 04/03/2009 for a stay in January 2009 | Bluebird
We spent a lovely ten days at this beautiful condo. It is close to the beach so we could easily carry beach chairs & a cooler(which were provided). The fully equiped kitchen made for some nice evening dinners. Shopping is near by so there is really no need to rent a car. Sitting on the lanai and watching the sunsets were beautiful. I highly recommend this rental condo. It truly was a home away from home. We will be back.

Home Away from home
Left on 04/02/2009 for a stay in October 2008 | Bob and Polli
This condo was clean, comfortable and convenient and so much nicer
for a week's stay than a hotel. The unobstructed view of the ocean
was one we never tired of seeing. The website (Aloha Condos) was
easy to use and the owner gave us complete and accurate information.
We would certainly recommend it.

THE VIEW FROM THE LANAI WAS SPECTACULAR. VERY CLEAN. WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF ALA MOANO SHOPPING CENTER, BUS STOP RIGHT ON THE CORNER TO TAKE YOU TO WAIKIKI OR WARD CENTER OR JUST ABOUT ANY PLACE ON THE ISLAND GREAT LOCATION. RESTAURANTS NEAR BY. WOULD RECOMMEND TO MY FAMILY & FRIENDS. PLANNING ON COMING BACK 2010. HAD A GREAT TIME
