Ilikai Apartments Condos in Waikiki, HI
Built in 1963, Ilikai Apartments is a 30-story high-rise "condotel" housing 1011 units. It is located along Ala Moana Boulevard and adjacent to the Ala Wai Boat Harbor, meaning many of these apartments have varying gorgeous views of the harbor, Ala Moana Beach, the Pacific Ocean, the surrounding cityscape, and/or the mountains. Thanks to its great location, Ilikai Apartments has quick access to many downtown Honolulu amenities including shopping centers, beaches, restaurants, cafés, parks, and more, which makes this building a popular choice for prospective residents.
This building is also one of the few Waikiki condos that allows owners to operate legal Honolulu vacation rentals, and it is likewise well known for being featured in the opening credits of Hawai'i 5-O.
Located just a short walk from Ainahou Triangle and Fort DeRussy Beach Park, Ilikai Apartments is located near the entrance to the main area of Waikiki. Fortunately, this means that residents and guests of the Ilikai Apartments are able to easily take advantage of both Waikiki and Ala Moana amenities, including the Ala Moana Center and Ala Moana Beach Park, Kalakaua Avenue and Waikiki Beach, and the aforementioned Fort DeRussy Beach Park. In fact, just a couple-minute drive North will bring you to the Ala Moana Center, which is the largest open-air shopping center in the world and home to hundreds of stores and restaurants. Just across the street is Ala Moana Beach Park, which provides more outdoor space for exercising on the tennis courts or beach volleyball court, picnicking with loved ones, or enjoying the beach located at this park.
On the Waikiki side, Ilikai Apartments sits West of Kalakaua Avenue, a popular street for shopping and dining. This street runs through the entirety of the main portion of Waikiki, and can even take visitors to the most popular beach in the area- Waikiki Beach. This incredibly popular spot is known for surfing, swimming, paddle boarding, sunbathing, and concession stands, as well as always being packed. For a more densely-populated option, visitors can instead go to the closer Fort DeRussy Beach, which sits South of Fort DeRussy Park. This long and wide beach has amazing views of the Waikiki coastline and Diamond Head, and it is often a popular option for those who want to avoid some of the "hustle and bustle" of the main Waikiki region.
In addition to the incredible offerings around the Waikiki area, Ilikai Apartments also features on-site amenities for residents, including:
- A swimming pool
- A tennis court
- A fitness center
- A recreation area
- 6 meeting rooms
- A circular restaurant above the top floor
Ilikai Apartments features studio, 1-, and 2-bedroom units with lanais, and some of the penthouse units offer 3-bedroom configurations.
Unfortunately, Ilikai Apartments is not a pet-friendly building.
