"We have just returned from having spent a most enjoyable month at the Waikiki Banyan in a completely and comfortably furnished condominium. Imagine receiving a call from from the owner shortly after arrival to ask if there was a anything she could do for you. She couldn't, it had already been done. Everything that we needed or enjoyed using was there. Both the Northerly and Easterly views are wonderful. If ten is the highest on the scale, we'll give Cathy's and Stefano's place an eleven ."

"This home even comes complete with pots, pans, dishes and glasses. Even cleaning supplies, paper towels and toilet paper. Some spices are also in the cabinets.
Hiro, our property manager, was very accommodating. I traveled from Florida, so at first getting in touch with the 6 hour time difference took a minute. Be patient. He is very gracious and helpful, and literally lives next door (a stones throw away).
The property has complete privacy, and the scenic views are incredibly breathtaking. The house does not come with central air conditioning, but the master does have a window unit a/c. The guest bedroom (my room) did not, but by late evening the guest room does cool down. Being on top of the mountain, it does have a constant breeze with ceiling fans throughout the house. Also the guest bedroom has a twin bed, so if you're traveling with another couple, it may be cramped, but with younger children or a single adult it should be fine. There are 2 sleeper sofas in the living room for additional people.
The views looking down on Honolulu, Diamond Head and Waikiki are amazing and the sunsets are gorgeous. You are literally 10 minutes away from grocery stores and restaurants, and 15-20 minutes away from Honolulu.
I would highly recommend this property not only for the price, but for the privacy as well."

"Cindy was a pleasure to deal with and the apartment was everything as advised in the website - very stylish! We arrived early 9.00am, after disembarking from a cruise, and the very helpful agent allowed us to book in early. The apartment was very clean and well maintained and the decor delightful - we loved the wooden flooring, the very large shower and comfy large bed! The beach towels were also a welcome bonus.
Dishwashing & dishwasher liquid, paper towels and coffee filters were provided but we wished that salt & pepper and sugar could have been included - we left ours behind for the next guests. Hotel soap/body lotion/shampoo and coffee/tea were also provided.
Ilikai is close to Ala Moana shopping centre which is only a 10 minute walk away but as Foodland is no longer there we used The Pantry in Hobron Lane and the ABC Superette across the road for staples.
We definitely recommend this apartment as it is in a prime position in Waikiki with a wonderful view. We enjoyed our walks to and fro from Central Waikiki. Bonus entertainment was provided by the Hilton via their nightly luaus and Friday & Saturday night fireworks."

"The Condo was nicely upgraded. Close to everything. I liked being in the beginning of Waikiki which makes it easy to get to the freeway or Ala Moana. It was a bit noisy at night, But It is Waikiki!!... So I understand there's nothing to do about that. There was a minor issue with the TV, and the property manager came to fix it that evening, Thank You. The beach is in walking distance and easy to get to. The pool at the condo did not look appealing to swim in. But overall, my family and I had a great stay. I would stay there again, very reasonable and quick return of my deposit."
