our seven day dream vacation
We stayed for 7 days in condo 790 at illikai Marina in May. We had great time with wonderful bed and views. We had my 94 yr old mother with us and she enjoyed the stay very much. Fold out bed slept great and even had foam pad if needed for it. Really quiet and liked security all the time. Don't take Roberts from airport. They will not ley you off or pick you up their. Make you walk 2 blocks from Illikai Hotel. Drivers not friendly at all. Greeters for them at airport were great, but changed as soon as got in shuttle. Wonderful tours through Discover Hawaii tours. Quiet there just like home and you can use Hilyon lagoon and beach to swim. It's only about 3 minute walk away. Enjoyed fireworks from Hilton on three nights from our balconey. Walked everywhere even to Walmart by ala Mona Mall only about 10 minutes. Abc stored very expensive worth the walk and they have bags in room to carry groceries back. Resteraunts everywhere with McDonalds only one block if u have children. Boards, swim equipment, chairs and beach equipment there to use. Very safe area and beautiful view if you like boats. Liked watching yachts come and go. Great price and great place to stay especially for older people.
Highly Recommend Unit 790
We stayed in this Condo for 6-nights and really enjoyed it. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures. The view from the 7th floor overlooks the quiet Ilikai Marina with beach views in all directions. The unit is clean and secure with friendly locals. Beaches are within walking distance. We rented bikes and rode to Waikiki beach everyday. There are restaurants and a small market nearby. The local Walmart has a grocery store.
The owner was very easy to work with and everything was exactly as she said in her emails. She was very responsive and provided good advice. Here are a few suggestions:
1. The City Bus is very easy to use and tourist friendly. We used it to go to the Pearl Harbor Memorial and the airport. Pearl Harbor is free but tickets should be reserved in advance. We did not get a tour and didn't need one. Everything is self-explanatory.
2. Bicycle rentals were a lot of fun and made for easy access to the activities around the condo.
3. Ilikai Park & Beach is a great place to stand up paddle and snorkel. The protected beaches offer the beginner a great place to see turtles and fish.
The location of the condo is perfect. It is just outside the noisy part of the waikiki, but close enough to have easy access to all the actions in waikiki. The condo itself is clean and well equipped. It overlooks the harbor and the ocean. I love sitting on the balcony and watching sunset. Parking is $20/night, which is not cheap. But good luck finding cheaper parking in waikiki.

Modern, well stocked vacation base.
Easy reservation scheduling. Clear instructions. The condo was very well furnished, spacious, and very clean. Well decorated, comfortable and contained all of the items needed for a Hawaiian vacation. Location was very convenient. Convenient parking. Easy in and out for destinations. Nice view of boat harbor and ocean. Least: bar downstairs. Best: Location, location, location. Well maintained and clean. Very secure and convenient door locks.
Response from Aloha Condos - 03/05/2013
Thank you for your nice review. We are so pleased you enjoyed our condo and hope you come back again soon!
Nicely located across road from the Marina so view of the boats and water is relaxing. Close to walk to alo Moana mall and 2 minutes walk from where the Trolley bus picks up. Also if renting a car, the alamo/National office is across the road. The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Nice pressure in the shower. Much nicer than staying in a hotel as the kitchenette was handy for breakfast. Place was clean. (altho the aircon vents could do with a brushdown). We normally always stay self catering but in Honolulu, dont think it is really worth it (for 2 persons) as eating out is cheap compared to back home in australia and groceries are expensive ie. Aud$4 for 1.8L milk, $4.25 for 250g cheese about the same for butter , sugar also expensive...I guess because it is an island, most things have to be flown or shipped in. If you are a family of 3 or 4, then it could be worth it. There is a Red Lobster downstairs and a nice buffet if you want to try a variety of foods at the Hawaiin Prince 2 hotels down towards the ala mall. $45 - but worth it. It was also a nice walk home after eating out in Waikiki, along the beach and you also get a good view of the Friday fireworks at the Hilton. If I went again, would stay again.
College Park, MD
Condo 790 had everything we needed for our stay. Kitchen was full of tools to prepare any kind of meal we wanted. Location was great, parking convenient as we could drive up to the 7th floor and just walk to the condo, great ocean view, and very quiet. Thank you Gillian and Vlad!!!
Response from Aloha Condos - 02/17/2013
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Come back again!

Better than I thought it would be
When I was doing research for our Hawaiian vacation and read all the glowing reports about Ilikai Marina Condo 790, I thought they had to be phony...nothing could be that good...had to be friends of the owner. Well, I was wrong...I also have no connection whatsoever with the owners. The place is truly as advertised...comfortable, great location, very reasonably priced, beautiful view, clean, and everything was easy about the rental. We also appreciated that the entire building was clean and maintained (clean garage, walkways, etc.) All the amenities were provided (beach chairs/towels/kitchen stuff/linens/laundry facilities/etc.) If you rent a car, you park on the same level as the condo although a bus stops right in front of the building and the touristy pick up place is 3 minute walk away. You see the Friday night fireworks from the balcony (although it is very small, two people can sit, drink, and observe the happenings.) You are high enough to see over the marina and see the ocean and amazing sunsets. Can't think of a better stay for the two of us.
Response from Aloha Condos - 01/26/2013
Thank you for the great review. We really got a laugh of you thinking beforehand our reviews were rigged! So glad you found out for yourselves! We look forward to your return visit.
Vlad & Gillian
Couldn't be better!!!
Having stayed here for 5 days, I could not understand why some people stick to hotel as accomodation in Hawaii.
If your itinerary is just to stay in one place and will not go out of it, then luxury resort would be an answer.
But if you want to enjoy attractions in Hawaii and to stay at peaceful accomodation, you should not miss this condo!
Location, Parking, Cleanliness... Everything's perfect.
You can get full ocean-view even in the kichen and don't have to go to Sunset Beach just to see sunset. On every Friday, Hilton will give fireworks to your lanai!
Response from Aloha Condos - 01/02/2013
Thank you for your great review. It is great staying in 790, we completely agree! Come back again soon.
Vlad and Gillian
Lovely atmosphere:-Right on the Waterfront
As we also stayed at the Ilikai next door for 10 days then moved here for the rest of our 3 week stay to Suite #790 I just realized that I had placed a review on Trip advisor and forgot to review here. Was looking to book again. We come from Sydney australia and stayed in #790 Ilikai Marina in July-August 2011. We had a wonderful stay . The apartment is located close to the car-parking floor and easy access to street level. Safe & secure. I was with teenage daughter and self staying after a major hip replacement and am in my 60's . I managed to walk to ala Moana Centre daily and to the beach easily. As mentioned by others, being next door to Hilton is a real bonus as it is almost a small town in itself. You won't need to go far if all you want to do is soak up the atmosphere. The location could not be more perfect and the apartment has everything that you would need. Just buy food. Also supplied though is all needed condiments. The bed was superb, brand new when we stayed so comfy. Wonderful aircon. No street noise either and across the road from the bus. The view is stunning,,, The staff at aloha Condos made such a difference, always exceedingly helpful. Easy check in and out. Just leave your bags at the Ilikai next door if you are there for the day before departing.. Perfect. Will stay again. Xx :)

We are happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to you and your daughter coming back again soon.
Gillian and Vlad, Owners
Great location, nice view, spacious and well furnished space.
Absolutely wonderful find. I would recommend this spot to anyone looking to be close to Waikiki but also out of the fray.
Response from Aloha Condos - 10/30/2012
Thank you for your kind words. We love our condo and we are always so pleased when guests enjoy it too.
Gillian and Vlad, Owners
peaceful, relaxing, very accomodating, beautiful, and close to e
We were very impressed with the condo and the service was exceptional!! We loved the view of the marina, the convenience of restaurants, walking distance to shopping, and we received very prompt help when we had just one small problem! All through our process of renting the condo and planning our vacation, Vladimir & Gillian were great to communicate with and extremely helpful! This condo was lacking in nothing! Everything is provided for a very enjoyable vacation and nothing to worry about for accommodations!! We liked the location to the beach-a very short walk, and everyone was sp friendly in the comlex! We will be in touch with this vacility and hosts again when we come back!! I honestly cannot think of anything we did not like, other than the facility does not have a swimming pool, but that is just for the occassion you may want to stay away from sand and ocean--that doesn't happen very often!! Thank you for making our stay very comfortable, relaxing, and in need of nothing other than us buying our food!! We loved it!!!
Linda and Chuck
Awsome location and ocean/marina views to die for!!
You can't go wrong with this lovely 1 bedroom condo. Dealing with both Kat and Gillian was wonderful, they respond to inquiries and questions lighting fast. It is very tastefully furnished through-out, clean and comfortable. The king bed is one of the finest we have slept on, I think better than home. And although we didn't need it, there is a queen sofa bed for additional guests.
No hastle check-in, management is just a phone call away if needed.
We had one small issue when the power to the building went out on our first morning but, got through it o.k.
There are several very nice restaurants below and around the corner, Chart House, Outback Steak House, Red Lobster, and be sure to drop into the Harbor Pub below, the help is in the true aloha spirit.
Mahalo for a great stay, we will be back again
Response from Aloha Condos - 09/09/2012
That is great you had a good time and enjoyed the condo. We look forward to you coming back soon again!

Nothing but praise for Ilakai Marina Condo 790 and Gillian and V
I've been to Oahu 26 times and this was the first time not staying with relatives. #790 was like being home. 790 is a great unit, fully equipped, well located, and had a great view, and a very reasonable price. Condo or hotel? Condo is the way to go. Everything you need is here. Close to Waikiki but far enough to avoid the craziness. Resrevations and check in were a breeze. Gillian, Vlad, and Kat are qiuck to answer questions and guide. I stayed for 2 weeks and had a mid-stay house cleaning. Housekeeping did a great job and even folded clothes we had left out. The parking garage is attached and runs $20 a day. Pay ahead and save some hassle. $20 a day for parking in Waikiki is a steal. The unit is close to ala Moana Mall, nice beaches, and easy access to H1 and touristy locations. We love Oahu and will be reserving #790 again. Thanks to Gillian and Vlad for a great vacation.
Response from Aloha Condos - 08/11/2012
We are so happy you enjoyed the condo and had such a great time. We look forward to your return.

My daughter and I enjoyed our time in Waikiki and felt the time went quickly, although we did visit Molokai for a few days which was wonderful. Our stay in Condo 790 was perfect, it has all the conveniences of home which was tastefully decorated. To top it off we were able to drive to the 7th floor to the unit, very convenient especially when we needed to unload luggage and goodies, which shopping was very close by. The location was perfect and the view awesome. Thank you Vlad & Gillian it was perfect!
Response from Aloha Condos - 07/26/2012
We are so pleased you had such a good time. Come back again!
A lovely stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the sounds of the birds and the green and flowers all around the holiday home were great. Our daughter was very comfortable on the sofa bed. It was easy to walk over to the beach as well as to town.
Would love to come back one day!
Great views and conveniece of location
Lots of natual light, comfortable, has most of the conveniences you'll need... Needs better light in the bedroom for reading at night... Easy access...and close to Morimoto's restaurant, which you don't want to miss because the food is delicious... All in all, a fine vacation and very comfortable stay.
Great amenity and Location
We spent 7 nights in Condo 790 and it had everything we needed. I agree with others that the no key combination lock is a bonus. the views were lovely, plenty of room for the two of us and while the kitchen is dated- it has everything you need and the condo was very clean. Great location out of the full on bustle of Waikiki and great to be near the shopping centre, bus and eateries. We loved our walk down to the beach. We think this condo is excellent value for money and had a great time. The cupboard with all beach gear, tennis rackets etc was a plus. wi-fi and local phones calls were also included.
Response from Aloha Condos - 06/06/2012
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back again!
newly retired couple
Incredible view and location!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was attractive and homey with a fantastic view of the yacht harbor and ocean. We walked to beaches and restaurants. We would definitely stay there again.
Great Sunset View
This condo is in a great location at the west end of Waikiki within walking distance of beaches restaurants and shopping. It has a beautiful view of the the Ilikai Marina and sunsets.
The Waikiki Boat Harbor and the Ilikai Marina are wonderful disc
Condo 790,like all the Marina condos, faces directly out to sea at the water's edge, whereas the main Ilikai building faces out diagonally. There is nothing like waking up and seeing the full ocean panorama at sunrise. The Marina is ideally located between Waikiki beach and the ala Moana park and shopping center. 790 is well-equipped and well-maintained. Owner's emails helped us to locate the Marina and move in after a late-evening arrival. You will notice that 790 has a better combination door lock than other condos on the floor - it eliminates the hassle of a lockbox and separate key when you walk back to the condo with an armful of groceries from the nearby Foodland supermarket. We would happily return to 790 for another stay in the future.
Nice condo & great location
The condo was nice and comfortable. We had plenty of room for 4 people and the sliding wall separating the bedroom from the living area was perfect for a kid's earlier bedtime.
The location was wonderful as it was located a short walk to the Hilton lagoon and a nice beach. A short walk to a bus was a nice option when we went to the aquarium and a 1-day car rental was close when we wanted to explore more of the island.
There were a couple of very small cleanliness issues that need improvement such as replacing musty-smelling small kitchen rugs. For my stay, I simply put the rugs in the cleaning closet and left a note for the cleaning staff.
Overall, the condo was a great fit for our family.
The condo is situated overlooking a beautiful boat harbor. It is very clean and comfortable. It has all the comforts of home. It is close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. We had a terrific vacation and would definitely stay here again.
Had a great time! The location of this unit is perfect for beach, shopping, restaurants, and the view is wonderful. The staff we met were very helpful, and the unit itself was all we needed.
The kitchen is a bit tired and needs updating and better lighting. The sofa is done and needs replacing.
Rooms were clean and the bed was fantastic want to go out and buy one like that. Friday night fireworks was great for my grandson. Will be back again soon.
Great Value & Location
The only reason I did not rate this 5 Stars Overall is because the balcony is so tiny that it was barely large enough for the two small chairs placed on it. We would have loved to have been able to lounge outside. Otherwise we were very pleased with our marina/ocean view, location, and comfort. We would definitely recommend this site; the owners were very good to deal with.
Good Location, Comfortable accommodations
The condo is located in a quieter area of Waikiki and just a very short walk to the beach. Kids loved that it was soo close to the ala Moana shopping center! The condo was adequately supplied and the king size bed was great. This is a good, affordable alternative to a hotel if you want to cook a few meals and have some extra room.
The Brown Family
Just what we hoped for.
We were happy that the condo was everything that it was advertised as. It was very homey,clean and comfortable. When we first arrived my daughter noticed that the shower drain was plugged. We called management, and a plumber arrived and fixed the problem right away. The manager even called back later to check on the situation, which we really appreciated.
We were on the island for our sons' wedding, and most of our family members stayed in nice hotels. We were quite happy with our decision to stay in the condo.
The rent was very reasonable and we were able to fix some of our meals there.
Our daughter and her friend said that the sofa bed was not the most comfortable, but they managed to sleep ok. My husband and I were very comfortable in the king sized bed.
We really enjoyed the Marina view and the location in general.
Great Location and View
My wife and I came for a 5 day visit for our anniversary and very much enjoyed our short stay in unit 790. The location and view are outstanding! The bed is very comfortable as well. We have enjoyed this location (Ala Wai Marina) for many years because it is convenient to the activities of Waikiki, yet it is somewhat removed from the crowds and traffic. Added pluses are its access to parking right in the building and the short distance to the ala Moana Park and Beach area which are virtually "next door"!
Comfort & Convenience with a Gorgeous View!
My spouse, 2 year old son and I stayed in this condo for a full week and it was perfect for us! Definitely large enough for a family of 3. We were very happy as soon as we walked into to find the sweeping views across the Marina/Ocean and the clean/spacious condo! As others have stated the condo is stocked with kitchen supplies, books about Oahu, beach towels, sand toys, boogie board,etc...
The updated bathroom was great and also, the king sized bed was very comfortable!
The reservations, check in, check out, etc was effortless! Definitely recommend this condo for those looking to stay very near, but not in Waikiki! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
The Perfect Stay in Honolulu
On the days mentioned above, my husband, adult daughter and I stayed in condo number 790. We were not excited to be in the business of Waikiki and so were very glad to find that your condo was in such a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. The parking garage was handy for in and out parking and oh. so convenient. The very best thing about the condo was how perfectly it was stocked and supplied. I can't imagine what we could have needed that wasn't provided for us.
Thank you so much! If ever we are able to return to Oahu, we'll be in touch with you right away to secure a return visit to condo number 790 at Ilikai Marina.
Our daughter left her camera and Mary found it and promised to send it to her. Of course we will pay for the shipping. Susan will be so glad to have her camera returned. She takes a lot of pictures and actually sees her vacation in more detail through her photography(she has very low vision). So many thanks to Mary for her kindness in finding a pretty important part of our happy vacation.

Clean, fresh, well equipped, great location and view.
My wife and I have been visiting hawaii for over thirty years and have stayed in various accommodations. 790 at the Ilikai Marina has to rank one of the best from our experiences.
We very much enjoyed our stay here at a very clean,
fresh and well equipped unit with very tasteful decor and quite adequate room space;
The view is superb, the Marina, the ocean, palm trees, sunsets and all - its Hawaii!
We found the owners to have very professional and hospitable approach to dealing with setting up the rental, providing very courteous and timely e mail information, etc., couldn't be easier.
We liked it all and have no complaints; Mahalo !

a carefree place to stay
The condo was clean, the bed comfortable,it had all the amenities needed in the kitchen and bath. The view was fabulous and we enjoyed being so close to beaches, shops and entertainment. The price was great as well.
First time in Oahu
Walnut Creek, CA
Great Location Condo
This tiny condo was perfect for us because we only sleep there, and enjoy walking to restaurants, beaches and parks. Too bad parking there is so expensive ($ 17.00 a day??) The kitchen could use a sharp knife or two for those of us who like to cook. Looked like they decided not to provide them because sommebody obviously used the formica counter as a cutting board. Beach towls and umbrella were a plus. Bathrooom remodel,impressive. Very quiet neighbors.Management needs to implement its well posted NO SMOKING policy to thr hired painters who worked all week when we were there and stunk up the parking garage which affected the hallways.
It is a great location and view. It is walked from there by Ala Moana beach and Ala Moana Center. It is good condo of the comfort that can be relaxed very much.?And very reasonable. We were able to enjoy Hawaii stay.
Great location right on Waikiki! a quick walk to the beach and a fantastic view of the marina make this a great condo.
we had a family of 4 and we all enjoyed the easy walk to beach along with all the amenities that waikiki offers.
Service was great though we did not need much help as the condo had all the basics that one would want.
Edmonton, Ab. Canada
Great Location but noisy
The location was great, the condo was adequate.They definitely need a new sofabed, it was very old and uncomfortable.
The main problem we had was the street noise,coming from the bar below and the garbage trucks very early in the mornings.
The building is quite old and could use some updating.Seeing cockroaches when we came out of the stairwell on the main floor was rather gross, considering that is where the restaurants are located.
We would likely stay there again, perhaps on a higher floor.
Response from Aloha Condos - 01/12/2010
The Ilikai Marina is in fact a quiet location. There is only a single lane access road separating the building from the beautiful Marina. The garbage truck comes and goes in the morning. If one is super-sensitive to sound the easiest way to avoid the truck noise is to shut the lanai door in the living room for that period of time. The bedroom is completely quiet if you shut the sliding door separating it from the living room. As the building is concrete construction there is no noise transfer between the units.
For sleeping the sofa bed is not as comfortable as the King size Simmons Beautyrest bed in the bedroom. However as sofa beds go it is extremely comfortable as a day time sofa. Extra foam has been added to make it more comfortable for a good night's rest.
The Ilikai Marina is always kept to a high standard of cleanliness. The ground floor has attractive landscaping, and is completely open to the outside, which is one of its charms. The building is treated for insects on a regular basis.
great condo !
we are traveling with a baby and condo is great
choice for us because we can cook or heat some simply
food for baby and us. The condo has great view, we
love to see the sun in the morning and sun set in the
afternoon. we love this condo!
Beautiful view, beautiful room.
We were very impressed with the quality of the accomadations and the location of the condo. We visit Honolulu for an annual business conference and we will definitley try to reserve the condo again for next year.
Gillian and I have stayed in our condo for little over two weeks. It was our first chance to fully enjoy the condo after we bought it in May 2009 and completely renovated it. The weather was great and every morning we went to the beach in front of the Hilton for a long swim. This beach is probably the best swimming beach in Waikiki. We managed to view three sets of Friday fireworks from our lanai. Our condo experience fullfilled our dreams and expectations.
Good location & good price (at least in 2007 - don't know what it is now
Lions Bay B.C,Canada
We found everything to be just as advertised. This was our second time staying at this condo, and it met our needs perfectly.We were within walking distance to everything, or we could hop a bus.We had a wonderful view of the ocean and Marina. The bed was so comfortable, just like home. We liked being able to get our own meal if we so wished. The kitchen was well stocked with everyhing we could every need. It truly felt like a home away from home, and help was only a phone call away if we needed anything.
frozen in alaska
great location and view
Location is great. Can walk to events, fireworks, beach rentals, and boat harbor. Good restuarants and stores nearby. Secured parking garage is very convienent.Worked great for us and a seven year old. well equiped condo.
bugs in the kitchen
At first sight the suite looked great, comfortable and clean. Then we
found some small bugs racing around the kitchen counter the next
day. A couple of days later we saw a cockroach on the kitchen wall.
We told the manager of the building and she gave us some bug traps
which did nothing to get rid of them. We decided we would just avoid
the kitchen and not let these critters spoil our vacation. After we came
home we sent photos which we had taken of those bugs to the
person/company that we had corresponded with to secure the rental
suite. No real apologies came back.
My advise to to find out if they did anything to the bug problem since
November of 2007.
Response from Aloha Condos - 09/20/2009
The condo is now under new ownership and management.
In the summer of 2009, the condo was completely renovated with all new furniture, new flooring, a new kitchen and a new bathroom.
There has not been any evidence or reports of bugs this year (2009).

We've stayed in this unit for a week and had a great time. The location is perfect, the view is beautiful. Parking is not a problem, we always found a spot in the free area nearby but if you don't, you can park in the attached garage for a fee. Waikiki beach area is walking distance, shops are walking distance. This is just a great little place to stay if you do not want to stay in a hotel or you want to save a little money. The unit is a bit outdated but clean, comfy and nothing was broken. You will find everything in the kitchen what you need for cooking. Bring beach towels though since those in the unit are small and not the best quality for water absorbtion. We highly recommend this unit to stay in, and we will deffinately return one day!!!
