We've stayed in several different units at the Ilikai Marina and
Everything met our expectations. We only had one small issue with the wifi but it was dealt with quickly. The koa decor is gorgeous and about as Hawaiian as one can expect! The location is what originally drew us to this property and continues to not disappoint. We especially liked the snack basket! What a nice touch! This will definitely be the first unit we try and secure the next time our travels take us to O'ahu.
Great View and a Comfy Stay in Honolulu
We really enjoyed our two nights at Ilikai Marina 1294. The view from the unit is great- I even saw a whale breaching! I appreciated all the little details the owners/managers have thought to include like welcome snacks and body wash, shampoo, and conditioner in the bathroom (and not the no name brands you normally get staying in a hotel). We liked staying on the edge of town, away from the noise and hustle and bustle of Waikiki but we also liked that it was close by enough to walk in at night for dinner.
For some reason I thought the property had a pool and it looks like the building we were in used to be able to use the pool at the hotel next door, but not any more. It wasn't a big deal though as the ocean water was as warm as a pool anyway!

Nani kōkī (supremely beautiful) Ilikai Marina #1294
Mahalo for sharing your beautiful "home away from home"! Perfectly appointed, extremely comfortable and gorgeous Hawaiian décor made for a beautiful place to stay. This end unit provided stunning, ocean front panoramic views from Diamond Head to ala Moana Park. Friday night fireworks from the lanai were an extra treat! An easy walk to ala Moana Mall or Waikiki.

A very enjoyable facility in all ways.
This lovely condo had all the amenities we would want while visiting Honolulu. It was convenient to beaches, shopping, dining out: all within reasonable walking distance. A lovely touch was the welcoming basket. The condo was clean, neat, comfortable, and quiet. One minor complaint was the amount of dust in the living room area. When we inspected the source, we found the problem originating from the "fresh air upright fans" on either side of the TV. The grills or slats were thick with dust, front and back. It appears they are not vacuumed or dusted, thus they blow dust out.
We would be happy to stay here again!

The condo was very well appointed, comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen. Location was the best though, easy walk toe ray thing you needed. Also easy driving . I would recommend this condo to anyone
The perfect getaway!
We had a great time in your condo it Ilikai Marina. The location was great and easy to walk to almost everything we wanted to see.
Only things that I would have added to help with the condo's amenities would have been some chairs for the lanai as well as maybe a couple of sand chairs, floaties, boogie boards or something like that that retnters could use. I bought an air matress while we were there and left it in the condo for future renters. Read more
Response from Aloha Condos - 11/10/2013
Mahalo for submitting a review and we’re glad you enjoyed our condo’s convenient location. We have many guests that prefer extra storage space and unfortunately storing boogie boards and other beach items takes up that valuable space

Womens Retreat... at the Ilikai Marina!
We reserved this awesome condo for our womens surf retreat in Hawaii. It was clean, modern, and the view... absolutely breathtaking! This unit is up-to-date with beautiful counter tops and appliances, lovely decor without being "cheesy hawaiian", and the lanai was a perfect place to relax and watch the surf from. A special feature?? The fireworks show explodes right outside the lanai, offering spectacular views for our guests. Sooo very happy with this unit, and we'll definitely be reserving it again in the future. A romantic, beautiful, and awesome rental... and the easy check-in and out, made it all the better. Thank you for our wonderful stay...we'll be back!

The Condo was spotless, and was everything we had hoped for. It was exactly as advertised. Good location, great views and magical sunsets.
A Piece of Paradise
Renting this condo was easy and the staff who run aloha Condo's are very professional you don't have to worry about anything. You even get an email from the owners asking you to call them if there are any questions or problems. I did a huge amount of research before booking this condo. My mind was set at ease when I spoke to Chuck. The condo is as pictured and they do a very nice job of keeping it clean. The bed is really comfortable and you sleep very soundly. The noise from the harbor is almost nonexistent. The view from the 12th floor is very beautiful to wake up to. I wish they would clean up the harbor it was a bit trashy. Ladies there is more than enough closet and drawer space for all of your items. We were 3 women in the condo and still did not use all of the drawers. The Jacuzzi tub is nice to relax in. But be careful since it is deeper than a normal tub and requires some getting used to, to get yourself up and out, not much to hang onto. WiFi is easy to access. There are some extra's in the cabinet above the vanity we discovered a few days into our stay, like sunscreen, nail polish remover and hairspray. We were left a very nice "Welcome" basket to get our vacation started. Everything worked well and you have everything you need for a complete relaxing vacation. If you choose to stay here #1294 you wont be sorry. This condo is solid and so are the people you will have contact with.
Very anxious parents
It was exquisite and much enjoyed when we were there for our Daughter's wedding. Plan to stay on our return visits and hopefully it is available.
Great view and location.
My husband, daughter and I enjoyed our ten day stay in Condo 1294. This corner condo was quiet with a great ocean view. The view from our lanai also allowed us to watch the boats in the marina, the surfers beyond the marina, as well as the nearby beach. We had the perfect seat to watch the fireworks from the Hilton on Friday nights. There was plenty of room for all our clothes (no living out of a suitcase).
Mark & Mary
Great place to stay!!
It was our first time to Hawaii and the Llikai Marina was a great place to stay. The room was clean and had a beautiful view. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants.
This unit and the Ilikai Marina was a calm peaceful escape in th
This condo was more than we expected. It was spotless and finely appointed. The bed was very comfortable. We didn't prepare food there because there are ample restaurants within walkong distance but the kitchen was well stocked. The lagoon and Waikiki beach are a very easy walk away. But it is just far enough away that you don't get bothered by the throngs of people on the beach. The best part of our stay was the view. Between the bedroom window and the very large slider leading to the balcony, you get an amazing view of not only the marina, but of the coastline as well. We will never bother with the Waikiki resorts again. Ilikai Marina is the better option.
Location was great. Room was comfortable and clean. Our stay was excellent.
From Reno, NV
Stayed for four days and truly enjoyed the location of this condo. Very well stocked and maintained. Felt like home! Close walk to beach and ala Moana Mall. The only bummer was the parking being 20.00 per day, but well kept garage.
St. Paul, Alberta, Canada
Great View of Marina!
We rented a one bedroom unit for my husband, myself and 2 children and it was comfortable enough. The children had to sleep on a pull out couch and they did not complain about it at all. The room was clean except for inside some of the dresser drawers there were tags from the previous renters in the drawers so we did not unpack our clothing which was a pain! The carpet needed to be vacuumed as well, but other than that we were happy with the room. Not much of an entrance into the building which other condo's have and the halls had odors.
Great location away from the crowds
My husband and i just recently stayed 12 days at Ilikai condo 1294. We were first timers to Hawaii so we were ready to do some exploring and relaxing. This location was excellent! Each sunset was nicer than the night before and there is nothing better than havng coffee in your pj's while gazing out your lanai slidng glass door to see all the boats n the marina and the the beautiful ocean beyond. Fantastic. Everything we needed was super close by too. Car rental, restaurants, pub, groceries and ala Moana shopping mall - with the most amazing food fair ever! If you cant find something to eat there, you are not hungry. Lol
Chuck was very easy to deal wirh and professional. Everything was exactly as advertised. Mahalo Chuck!
Just like home
I appreciated the service in regard to the emails with all the necessary information to arrive at our room. The condo was awesome, clean and comfortable for our family of four. We had a great week. Thank you!
Ani & Adam
My husband and I stayed here for 7 days for our honeymoon. It was absolutly wonderful. The room is equipped with everything you could need. The view at sunset is breath taking. I have a picture of every sunset from the patio. The patiois the only downside to this lovely room. Its very small. My husband and I sat cross legged with no room to spare. But still beautiful none the less. The bed is very comfortable & has a flat screen tv although the big window looking out at the sea was all we needed. I loved the bathtub it had jets which were wonderful after a full day of activities. The location is awesome. Close to everything. If you opt out of renting a car the bus lines are very close. We didn't miss not having a car. We had the pleasure of meeting Natalie who takes care of the place. She was so extremely nice and welcoming. Gave us tons of info on best happy hours and places to eat. She was even able to be contacted for simple questions which is nice if your unfamiliar of the area. There are numerous bars and resturants all within walking distance. Chart House located in the same building is amazing for drinks and steak. The room is very quiet, clean and roomy. The welcome basket of goodies was the perfect touch. I would highly recommend this place to everyone looking for a wonderful condo to stay.
A beautiful view, a welcome basket of local edibles and a location in Waikiki that made walking to the zoo or ala Moana Center a breeze. Towels were big and thick. Kitchen was remodeled and cabinets looked like Koa wood. Beautiful!
In order to hit the excellent star, more practical amenities would have been nice. There was no overhead lighting in the hallway and the vanity lighting wasn't adequate. In the bathroom, as an alternative to a canvas hamper and extra towel racks, they might consider more counter space/toiletry storage and add decorative hooks for hanging towels instead. Long term, is the pocket door really necessary? Making that a wall would add considerable space to the bathroom for storage needs. Likewise, even though the kitchen looked stellar, it wasn't very functional as it had very limited counter space. With no dishwasher, and after washing dishes, there was even less counter space. The floating island seemed disjointed.
Service was first rate however, as they were willing and able to accomodate our early arrival of luggage. We left our packed luggage in the closets and enjoyed our day! We would most certainly return here and recommend this unit to friends! Read more
Response from Aloha Condos - 01/17/2013
Your comments are most appreciated. it is our goal to make our guest as comfortable as possible. We will certainly make improvements based on the most helpful suggestions you offered
Great location and view.
My husband and 2 sons stayed in 1294 for ten nights over the holidays.
We loved the location and the view. The condo itself was in great condition. Upgraded kitchen with everything we needed and upgraded bathroom. Convenient parking also available for our car rental. We've stayed in the same building before but without the upgrades; what a difference a new kitchen and bathroom makes! The condo was quiet, super clean and just the right amount of space for the 4 of us. Having the aBC store on the corner was a great benefit too. We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back next year. We would diffently stay here again.
Great view from lanai
This room with a great view, to stay in Honolulu was also a very convenient location.
Stay for the weekend, I was able to enjoy the fireworks from the Hilton, I said that view was not sorry about your stay at the Hilton.
John and Janie
Perfect location with very comfortable accommodations.
The location of this property is within walking distance of everything that you want or need in Waikiki. We were very comfortable and will be a repeat customer. You will not be unhappy staying here.
Very quiet and relaxing
This is our first stay at unit 1294 but we have stayed at three other condos in this building.The condo is very quiet and has a great view of a marina and the ocean.We had no complaints except the jacuzzi is too small to use as a bath tub.The condo is well equipted with just about everything you will need.We would stay here again. Ded
My husband and I stayed here because we were the Best Man and Maid Of Honour in our good friends' wedding...at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, which is very close. We decided to stay in a condo because we loved the idea of having a kitchen and a little more space. We weren't disappointed. Instructions for check-in were detailed and easy to follow...we had no problems finding the place or getting accesss. We found the location of the condo to be amazing...close to absolutely everything; restaurants of all kinds from McDonalds and Red Lobster to Kobe's. An easy walk to anything you could possibly need, like shopping or groceries, or a very affordable cab ride elsewhere. The condo itself was great too, with a big comfortable bed and fully stocked kitchen. Amazing views of the marina and ocean, very quiet(even with the lanai doors open you can barely hear the traffic), and private. We would definitely recommend this unit to anyone considering staying here. Also must try the Harbor Pub right downstairs for great pizzas, really cheap drinks and great service too!
Gold Coast, Australia
Beautiful views, clean and comfortable!
We would highly recommend this unit. It was clean, comfortable and had all ammenities needed for a small family to stay comfortably. Will definitely stay again in future.
We stayed at this condo for 5 nights. The layout of the condo is very practical, the king bed was very comfortable. Our children slept on the Sofa Bed and said it was not very comfortable. I think this is a good condo for 2 people. The location is pretty good. The service was excellent, we had an issue with the Internet and it was resolved within a day of reporting it.
Santa Cruz, CA
Top-notch place to stay in Waikiki
Ah, what a great condo! Wonderful view out over the Marina, just a short stroll to Hilton Hawaiian Village and beyond that the whole crazy strip, easy parking, quiet. My wife and I stayed here 4 nights and agreed it was the best place we've stayed in 4-5 trips to Oahu so far. The furnishings and decor are good quality and island-appropriate, with nice koa wood cabinetry in the kitchen. The kitchen was well-stocked with appliances and dishes, the bed was comfortable and king-sized, the bathroom was plenty adequate, etc. The building is an easy 10-minute walk to the Hawaii Convention Center, where I was attending a meeting.
The only improvement I'd make is to put a more room-darkening shade over the bedroom window; the marina lights and the full moon made the room pretty bright and I found it hard to stay asleep until I tried an eye mask. Otherwise, no complaints!
Our Fifth Decade of Travel to Hawaii
South San Francisco
1294 Continues To Be Our Favorite Waikiki accomodation
My wife and I have been fortunate to rent 1294 for our last three trips to Oahu. Over the last five decades we have stayed in many Waikiki hotels, but love 1294 the best. Making the reservation is a snap. We can honestly say that everything is provided for a perfect stay. The tropical Koa wood cabinets and furniture and the stainless steel appliance and granite counter tops are very pleasing to the eye. The jetted bathtub is very soothing after a long day of walking! The bed is very comfortable. All we need to do is bring food and drink and enjoy the wonderful condo and the great view. We were treated to perfect weather for our last 8 night stay, and even early morning rainbows. On Friday nights we really enjoyed the Hilton's fireworks
Good location for convention center but furnishings and amenitie
This condo is very convenient to the convention center and ala Moana Shopping Center and a comfortable walk to Waikiki along the beachfront. We could not find any good restaurants in the area, however, just chains or over-priced beachfront dives. The condos furnishings are OK in the bedroom, however, the living room sofa is broken-down and uncomfortable to sit on for TV watching. There are very limited kitchen utensils. Probably the biggest negative is lack of adequate lighting in the entire condo. We could not read in bed because the lighting is so poor. We had to turn on every light in the kitchen, living room, and dining room to have more than a dim view in the condo at night. Finally, we have never stayed in a condo where the owner did not provide a single bar of soap. The first morning, I had to walk to the aBC on the corner to buy a bar of soap for our morning showers! We were generally disappointed in this condo. Read more
Response from Aloha Condos - 04/03/2012
Deb, it sounds like you weren’t very happy and we’re sorry you couldn’t find a good restaurant in the Waikiki area. Our guests are provided with bar soap and liquid hand soap with extra supplies in the cabinet under the lavatory. Your instructions included local contact information, and you were invited to give us a call if you experienced any difficulty during your visit. I regret you didn’t give us that opportunity as we would have been happy to respond to your requests and improve the quality of your stay.
North Bend WA
We stayed a week in eary March 2012. The weather was far less than ideal, but the condo was excellent. The interior is elegant and the view is fantastic. Make sure to enjoy the great fireworks show every Friday and maybe Thursdays also. Balcony is perfect viewing. Condo was clean and comfortable. Check in is easy.
My mother rented this condo for us for our honeymoon and as we had never stayed in a condo before or even been to Hawaii we didn't know what to expect. When we walked in the room it was late at night and the room looked wonderful when we opened the door and the welcome basket was very unexpected but a lovely touch.
I have to say the room is very tastefully decorated and has every amenity you could ever want including a jetted tub which my wife made immediate use of. The furniture is of the highest quality and the bed was extremely confortable.
When we opened the curtains the next morning the view took our breath away and just added the cherry on top of the cake. It was a treat to sit and watch the boats come and go in the marina and to watch the numerous dragon boats come and go as they practiced out in the ocean.
We were thrilled with this condo and would definitely rent it again and recommend it to everyone we meet. It made our honeymoon complete and thank you Chuck for letting us enjoy it.

Overall Good value condo
Loved the location of condo. Upgrades in condo were nice. Bad things: airconditioner works so poorly as to make condo almost unbearable in the evening hours, especially since the roll up blind for the sliding glass doors is totally broken- the blind has torn off from the roller part of the blind. The sun heats up the apt alot and makes evening sleep rather difficult. Read more
Response from Aloha Condos - 09/23/2011
I apologize for the blinds and they have been repaired. As I mentioned to you in our last correspondence, the windows have a “lock-out” system to prevent the AC from cooling if not tightly closed. At any rate we are having the AC checked to be sure it is functioning properly. We provide all of our guests with a local contact phone number to call for assistance during their visit. Glad you liked the location and upgrades and I hope you will return.
More than we expected
Thank you! it was more than what we expected.
it was our first time to stay at condo in Hawaii. Since we were traveling one year old child, we needed somewhere we could feel like living at home. there was everything we needed. it was perfect for our holiday in Hawaii.
we would definitely recommend it.

The Best of Waikiki
6 stars! Over the years I have stayed in most of the hotels and lots of condos in Waikiki and Chuck provides the best. I arrived a day early and Natalie buffed the room out on her Sunday afternoon for me. This property is a 5 minute walk from major shopping and the heart of Waikiki beach and night life but out of the traffic and noise. The photos on the website seem too good to be true but believe it! Price compare it to hotels with "mountain view" and this is ocean front. You can't get any closer. Full kitchen, great towels, full a/V in bedroom and common area with free hot spot and very nicely furnished. Lots of extras in the closet for kids and adults at the beach. Parking isn't cheap ($17/day) but there were always spaces and it is half of the going rate at hotels. $8 airport shuttle from the Ilikai concierge. If I owned this condo, I wouldn't change a thing. I will ask for 1294 every time I come to Oahu.
We vacationed with our 2 month old baby, who we had sleeping in the living room. This condo is in a great location close to the Marina and walking distance to all the resorts. It was well appointed and clean. The building was quiet. The hallway outside had a strange odor and was a bit dingy, but none of this came through to the condo. We would definitely stay here again.
Perfect condo for our stay
The condo was well looked after, clean on arrival with a mid stay clean. At the end of Waikiki so in a nice quiet spot but still close enough to everything if you wanted. It was expensive but then it seems Hawaii is so cheap wasn't really an option and you made up for it by being able to cook for yourself a few nights a week. It was however on top of one of The Chart House, a great spot for eating, drinking and watching the sun set.
Joyce, Don, & Carolyn from Connecticut
Perfect location and lay-out, excellent amenities!
It was an easy walk to Wakiki beach with the provided beach chairs/mats/towels. Loved looking out over the marina! The aBC Store was so convenient for groceries. The ala Moana Mall was within walking distance; we stopped there to pick up another pair of shorts and had dinner at the food court - inexpensive but good food. We opted not to rent a car on Oahu, and took the bus everywhere we wanted to go. The bus stop was right at the corner across from the aBC Store. It may have taken a bit longer to get places, but was interesting and a lot less expensive. We only had 3 days, but went to the USS arizona Memorial and the USS Missouri Memorial at Pearl Harbor, went to Diamond Head, and went snorkeling at Hanauma Bay, and spent time on Wakiki beach. Ilikai Marina Condo 1294 was a perfect location, very well maintained and had all the amenities we needed! And we loved the welcoming gift basket!
San Diego CA
Great first Hawaii visit!
The condo was great. Walking distance to many, many places. We rented an SUV and saw the whole island. Was lucky enough to enjoy the opening of Morimoto restaurant next door. Fantastic food and ambiance! Experienced a luau, North Shore, shrimp truck, Turtle Bay, Waikiki Beach, Polynesian Cultural Center, Pineapple Express, and many more.
Chuck & Judy
Great view, very quiet
The condo had a wonderful view of the marina with the ocean in the background. Beautiful sunsets from the balcony every night. Great location, close to everything. Lot of it walking distance. Very quiet. Chuck Buser was a gem in coordinating everything from the rental to getting us information on a wheelchair delivery. Hawaiian Medical had a chair waiting in our room when we arrived and picked it up the day we left. Nice laundry facilities and building itself was very clean. David, the office manager was most helpful and friendly. The public parking attendant at the condo was equally as nice.
Very convenient to Waikiki, shopping at ala Moana Shopping Mall and dining. The parking garage was very convenient and easily accessed. The unit had a beautiful view, was clean and nicely decorated. The welcome basket of goodies was appreciated. Great a/C!
Spectacular 4th of July
Truely enjoyed our stay although just 1 day we would do it again.I believe the check in should be earlier than 3:00 pm as the vacate deadline is 11:00
Stay in paradise
A pleasant stay in paradise
We enjoyed a wonderful stay in 1294. The only area of malfunction during our stay was the toilet. The issue did not significantly affect our stay. The property manager advised on our arrival that the toilet required maintenance...this was schedule for during our stay but was not undertaken.
Gig Harbor, Wa
Loved our stay with a couple caveats
We had a wonderful 8 day stay at the Illikai marina. The location was perfect for a family with young children. The condo was clean and very nicely decorated. We stay in alot of vacation condos and location alone will keep us coming back to the illikai marina.
Unfortunately there are some caveats.
1. Even though we asked the aloha condos staff about the deck railings looking like they ended awfully far from the building, they assured us the spacing was no more then the railing spacing.. that was incorrect. *IF* you had the condo slider open all the way blocking off 2 inches, that was true. If you closed the slider part way then the spacing was 8 inches! Not only that, but there is a small ledge, so I would never recommend leaving the slider open with children under 8-10. I cant comprehend how it could have ever met building codes. Now, saying that, we would still stay there again because we love the location and the a/c works great. :) But we would have brought a travel gate so that we could feel safe opening the sliding door.
2. The kitchen didnt have a stitch of tupperware -none of the perks that you usually find in a rental... sugar, or left over foil that the last folks left bring those from home.
3. Towels!! We (3) were provided with 1 bath towel and 1 beach towel for an 8 day stay. I dont know about you, but I dont use the same towel every day for over a week.. especially when vacationing in a beach location that is very warm. We had to wash the towels, which was a first at any rental we have ever stayed in. The washer and dryers at the illikai ate $5 in quarters. There is no change machine. ABC store will only give 3.00 in quarters with purchase. It was a big pain. Dont use the stacked w/d & bring plenty of quarters. It cost 2.25 each load to wash and an addtl 2.25 to dry. The washer only fit 6 of the large towels and a few hand towels.
Again, we would stay there again and feel it was a value, but wish we would have known the above.
We loved our stay at 1294 at the Illikai Condo. It was clean, tidy and very quiet. It had a kitchen which was fully equipped if you wanted to stay in and cook. Otherwise there was a Red Lobster down stairs, pub and other places within walking distance. Great location which was a 10 min walk to Waikiki beach so you weren't in the hussle and bussle. It also was 10min walk to Ala Mona shopping centre which had fantastic stores. There was cheap parking for $6US for 12hrs which is great if you had a car for a few days. We parked at the condo's which was $17US per day and worked out better for us as we didn't have to keep moving the car after 12hrs.
The only downside is that there was construction work happening at the Ilikai Hotel across the road so could be a bit noisy in the day, however if your in Hawaii you wouldn't really be staying in your room!
Would definately stay here again and recommend it to family and friends.
So much like home - it was tempting to stay longer!
This condo is the perfect size with the perfect amenities! And quiet, save for the fireworks on Friday night of which I had a fantastic view. It was comfortable and clean and close to a lot of things - mall, quaint shops, restaurants, beach, etc. Finally, the owner is very prompt in his responses when you have questions - I really liked working with him as well. And, by the way, the candy, nuts, and coffee on arrival were nice touches! Thanks, and I will definitely stay there again, should the opportunity arise.

Great Condo with a priceless view. Close enough to
Waikiki beaches without being as busy
San Francisco, CA
Perfect Location- Great Vacation!
My family and I stayed in unit 1294 for 9 days on a recent trip to O'ahu. The condo was perfect for us! My husband was attending a conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village just two hotels down from us- less than a 10 minute walk. From the Ilikai Marina I could walk with our 14 month old to the beach, to the lagoon, to the Ala Moana Mall (where there's also a full grocery store), or take a longer walk down into the "heart" of Waikiki. It was also a convenient starting point for driving to other parts of the island, like the North Shore and to Hanauma Bay.
The condo itself had everything we needed and we loved having a full kitchen. The view from the condo is fantastic and on our last morning we were treated to a gorgeous full rainbow just outside. The bed was comfy, the air conditioning worked great, it was easy to park and easy to make all the arrangements with Chuck, the property manager. We rented baby equipment like a high chair and pack-n-play from a local company called www.babytravelmadeeasy.com. They provided a great service.
The only drawback to the condo is there is no dishwasher. Since we did a lot of cooking ourselves, this was one convenience that would have been nice to have. Also one of the standing lamps in the living room had a burnt out bulb and the toilet tank seemed to have a leak so the water would run more than it needed to. We used the washer and dryer in the building twice during our stay and that was really nice to have nearby.
We would definitely stay here again!
Very nice place
Great place to stay with a very nice view of the ocean.
Sort of clean - Wonderful views - Lovely setting
The condo was picked up and sort of clean. There were food scraps in the kitchen sink, the refrigerator was not wiped down, the kitchen had been swept, but the dustpan was not used to complete the task, the windows toward the extraordinary view were not clean, the glass top tables and furniture were dusty, there were visible dust clusters under the bed, and there was an empty candy wrapper on the bed.
I called the owner within minutes to let him know the condition. I also called the individual in charge of cleaning. She did come a few hours later, and cleaned the sink and floor.
I paid a $120.00 cleaning fee, and asked that the fee be reduced or waived. The owner did not call back either that evening or during the following 3 days.

COULDN'T HAVE BEEN BETTER
THIS WAS THE GREATEST EXPERIENCE OF OUR LIVES. WE WERE CELEBRATING OUR 10TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY AND COULDN'T HAVE PICKED A BETTER ISLAND OR CONDO TO STAY AT. IT WAS CLEAN EVERYTHING WAS ON HAND THAT WAS NEEDED. SCENERY WAS SO BEAUTIFUL WE COULDN'T STOP LOOKING AT IT. WAIKIKI BEACH WAS IN WALKING DISTANCE AND CAN BE SEEN FROM THE CONDO. YOU WERE SO ACCOMODATING TO US AND IT WAS APPRECIATED. WE WERE THINKING WE WOULD LIKE TO STAY THERE AGAIN SOMETIME. WE ARE PLANNING ANOTHER TRIP NEXT YEAR WE MAY GO TO MAUI BUT IF WE COME TO OAHU WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTACT YOU. (There was one thing that I was thinking would be nice. If you were able to put up a long mirror on the back of a door so we could get a good view of ourselves, maybe that is vain but I would have liked to see myself in full view) THANK YOU FOR THE MOST WONDERFUL VACATION OF OUR LIVES.

Beautiful view of Waikiki
When my family and I arrived at the Ilikai Marina, we were surprised at how
close it was to so many sites. We were within walking distance of Waikiki
Beach, Ala Moana Mall and Park. We had a great view of the marina and a
beautiful sunset every night. The room had enough room for the four of us
and amenities like a kitchenette stocked with dishes and appliances, a bathtub
with a jacuzzi, two TV's with cable, and a sofa bed for the kids. It was a great
central location to all the places we wanted to see. We had a blast. The only
thing I could not figure out was how to turn on the showerhead, but the
jacuzzi made up for that. After a long day of sightseeing, the warm jets of
water soothed my sore muscles and helped me relax on my vacation.
We found the room to be very pleasant, with great views of the Ocean and Marina. The location is perfect with the heart of Waikiki, the Ala Moana Mall, and the Convention Centre all within a very short stroll!

Beautiful ocean view
Fanastic location and view, walking distance to Waikiki. Very quiet. We didn't eat in, so lack of dishwasher was only a minor inconnvenience to us.

This place was fantastic!! Everything we expected and more. Very Clean. Great View. Convenient to all. Chuck @ Aloha rentals was also great to deal with. He had great follow up on everything from start to finish. This unit made our vacation to Oahu even more enjoyable and having breakfast every morning overlooking such a wonderful view, made it very difficult to leave.
We needed a place close to a relative's apartment with easy access and
near-by parking. The location was exactly what we were looking for
and parking couldn't have been easier. We could walk out the door of
the apartment, take the elevator, and be in the parking garage in less
than five minutes. The view of the marina was delightful. The
apartment was well furnished, the bed was comfortable, and the
kitchen seemed stocked with all the plates, cups, glasses, and flatware
anyone would need. It met our needs exactly.
This was a great place to stay, if you want an ocean view, with a full kitchen without paying for an overpriced hotel.

We discovered a gem of an accomodation!
My wife and I have been coming to Oahu for every 40 years. We usually stay in hotels or with friends. For many years our parents rented condos at the Ilikai Marina. We looked for a gem and we found it.
Great view, beautifully appointed accomodation exactly as depicted in the internet video, and the location inspires exploring Ala Moana and the Waikiki area on foot.
We are definitely returning to this unit!
San Mateo, CA
Really enjoyed our week at this condo. Close to main streets, ocean, restaurants and shops, but quiet.
wonderfull location very good equiped
Wonderful condo in Honolulu
My family experienced the magic of Hawai'i at Christmas and New Year's from this waterfront condo in Honolulu. The condo was in exceptional condition, and the service was first rate. All of our questions were answered with speed and curtesy, and basic needs were anticipated without our asking! From the great views, to the great accomodations, we could not have asked for a more perfect vacation. Mahalo to Aloha Condos!

2nd Time at This Condo
- Absolute Ocean Front (not just 'ocean view')
- Convenient Location
- Updated Interior
- Would be really nice to have a kettle.
- No full-length mirror.
- No shampoo/Linse/body wash (some condos supply these amenities)
- There was no welcome gifts/snacks (that was in the condo the last time we rented).
- Dish-washing sponge was too dirty and old to be useful ( I would use that sponge to do my dishes at home)
- There was only a little bath cleaner.
- There was no medium-size towel that was there the last time.
- No dish washer.
- Could have used another set of bed sheets.
Oak Creek, Wis
Condo was not cleaned from previous occupant and had to call for service. Also, garage charged for 4, 24hr. periods when we checked in after 11am on the 1st and had to be out by 11am on the 4th. The sign posted at the gate clearly states per 24hr period. Would also have liked a lanai large enough to enjoy sitting on and a pool! Location was great and condo itself was otherwise comfortable, MUCH better than unit 394 which rents for same rate. Also liked the convenient check-in procedures.
Chino Hills, CA
Ilikai Marina Condo 1294
It is a wonderful place to stay. Just 5 minutes of walk you can get to
beach. This room is oceanfront and it has a beautiful view of the
ocean with lots of boats. Fireworks occasionally can be seen at night
from the small balcony and they are spectacular. The hotel is quiet
and you can have good sleep. The kitchen has a good set of cooking
utensils and you can save money cooking yourself. We have a very
good time with our then-4-year-old son there. Would like to go back
there sometime soon :)
As much/as little stimulation as you want!
The condo is very tastefully decorated and the view is spectacular. We especially enjoyed watching the sunset from our lanai overlooking the ocean. The Ilikai is located within walking distance of Waikiki Beach to the south and Ala Moana shopping mall to the north. Next year will be our 3rd year returning to this beautiful location - the condo has such a warm homey feeling, just perfect for the two of us!
San Diego, California
The condo was better than advertised. Great accommodation, close to the water and a view to forever. Appliances were just like home and easy to use. The little extras were great for beach use and even a printer for the laptop.
I would do it again.
