COVID Update Click here.


Since 1965, Marina Hawaii Vacations has offered the best places to stay on the island of Oahu. Marina Hawaii Vacations’ more than 300 privately-owned condominiums are located in the Ilikai Hotel, the Ilikai Marina and Discovery Bay. So what sets us apart from other vacation rentals and hotels on Oahu?


1.     World-class location

With ocean views, yacht harbor views, beachfront access, and world-famous Waikiki at your doorstep, what’s not to love? Public transportation makes getting around town simple, and Ala Moana Shopping Center is just a short walk away.


2.     Individually-owned condos

Each condo has its own unique style, plus our standard amenities . Condos are available in various tiers (economy, standard, and deluxe) to meet your needs. Many of our owners stay in their own condos periodically to make sure everything is in top shape, and to keep their décor up-to-date. Most of our condos feature full kitchens, which makes your vacation or extended stay feel a little more like your home away from home.


3.     No resort fees and efficient booking

It’s as simple as that! We’re not big on small print or hidden fees, and when you book a reservation with us, we will give you a breakdown of charges to make sure everything is clear and in the open. If you aren’t sure what type of unit to book, we will walk you through the options and provide you with quotes and suggestions to suit your needs.


4.     Convenient amenities

Laundry facilities are available in all of our Waikiki properties, whether in the unit, or within the building. All condos are stocked with a starter kit of bathroom toiletries, as well as kitchen necessities. Kitchens are outfitted with dishware and cookware, and all units are supplied with bath towels and linens. The Ilikai features a saltwater pool, and Discovery Bay features a pool and barbecue area.


5.     On-site, reliable guest services

Need a hairdryer or extra hangers in the closet? Did the toaster burn out on you?  Wondering where to grab dinner in the area? Hop on the elevator and come down to our lobby-level office in the Ilikai, or give us a call. We are the only on-site property management in the area, and we work to ensure our guests have the most comfortable stay possible. If a repair is needed in one of our units, we have our own maintenance team on property. If you need to print boarding passes, we have a computer and printer just for our guests. Or, if you just want to chat or learn a little more about the island, our friendly staff is on-site Monday-Saturday to greet you with warmth and Aloha.


For any questions about Waikiki vacation rentals, please contact Marina Hawaii Vacations and an agent would be happy to assist you. We can be reached at 808-946-0716 or

Best kept secret in Hawaii - Oahu island

Whether you are going to Oahu for the first time or have been coming here for many years, this is the best kept secret on the island. Located on the east side of beautiful island Oahu, Waimanalo Beach is one of my favorite beaches to visit. As you all might know, this island is small and it only takes about 30-minutes driving from Waikiki to get to this destination.

I go to Waimanalo beach almost every weekend to just relax and get away from my regular weekday routine. You won’t see too many tourists at this place, but you will see a lot of locals who live in the area or just enjoying their weekend journey. The water is a beautiful light blue and the sand is fine and white most of the time.

Waimanalo Beach is located in the east side of Island of Oahu and about 30-minutes driving distance from Waikiki. If you are driving, you can hop on H-1 East from Waikiki and continue to go straight and you will see these beautiful beaches on your right side. You can also search “Waimanalo Beach Park” on the google maps and they will give you the guide to get there.

“You might think this beach is little far, but trust me for great scenery and relaxing time…..”
