About Bano

Our family lives in Seattle and love vacationing in Hawaii, our favorite Island Paradise

Bano purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bano chose South Oahu

We visited Honolulu over the years and always chose to stay at the Ilikai hotel The location is perfect. Easy access. Lots of good Parking options. Large lobby. Restaurants. Very well maintained building. Two outdoor Pools. Hoped to buy a condo here someday and two years ago our dream became a reality. We are very pleased and hope to shre our home with others looking for the same 'Aloha feeling'.

What makes this condo unique

Walking distance to Restaurants and shopping.. Lots of good parking options. Heated Outdoor pool. Loungers and quiet spaces to read a book.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Communication was excellent-minor issues were sorted immediately. The location was amazing! Within walking distance to Ala Moana, Ross, Hilton shops, convenience stores, eateries, public transport, beaches, the beautiful lagoon. Kitchen well equipped, beds very comfortable, beach towels, chairs, umbrella etc supplied. Views to die for! The weather was very warm so the second air cooling fan was necessary.

Great Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a family holiday in March and stayed at this location. It was a wonderful location, close to all the stores and public transportation. Kitchen had what you needed, however you will need to go and purchase seasoning. We had a choice of swimming in the lagoon or the ocean and there was also a swimming pool. The lagoon was perfect for small children. We were 10 minute walk to the main area of Waikiki with all the shops and restaurants. The Ilikai Hotel also had shops and restaurants. We had a perfect view of the fireworks on the beach on Friday evenings. Bano was a wonderful host with quick responses. We had one little issue and it was resolved very quickly. We will definitively be returning.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as Bano had described. The Ilikai is right next door to the Hilton Hawaiian Villa. Parking was very easy to find on the street or in the lot close by. This was a big help as we were able to park for nearly half of what it would have cost had we parked in the Ilikai valet. The view from the balcony was perfect. You can watch the show from the Hilton across the way and also look out at the lagoon and the ocean. Bano was even was willing to allow us to enter the unit earlier on check-in date, if only our plane had not been delayed. Highly recommend this rental.

Great condo and great location. Close to everything. Walking distance to grocery store, restaurants and beach. Rental car place across the street, generally got around walking or using Uber. Rented vehicle for a day to drive around the island, highly recommend, phenomenal scenic views. Concierge is great and helpful.

The Ilikai Hotel is 50 years old and this fact can be seen everywhere. The condo badly needs a renovation. The pictures don't show the current condition.

The location of this property is ok and the ocean view is nice (but only sideways). Severe noise nuisance by air-conditions on every Lanai and by traffic.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our condo. The Ilikai was built in 1964. Viewers of old tv shows will remember this as the place where Jack Lord stood on the roof in the opening credits of Hawai‘i Five-O. It is a welll maintained hotel and received a GEM rating by Trip Advisor. We purchased our condo 2 years ago and put in a new kitchen, new floors and furnishings. I hope you do keep us in mind when you visit the Island again. Wishing you many happy Travels Mahalo Bano

Excellent Location. Rent a Paddle board and enjoy the Kahanamoku Lagoon at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Swim or sun bathe at the beach. Walk the bulkhead to the hot surfing spot, or do some surf fishing.

Enjoy Tuesday and Friday Night Fireworks on the beach.

Aroma coffee shop on the main floor of the hotel. Starbucks at the Hilton next door and Kimo Bean Coffee shop across the street is excellent. The Ilikai Bar and Grill on the outdoor deck is very popular. Dinner at the Sarento on the 25th Floor of the Hotel offfers a high end menu and happy hours deals so do Morimotos, Kobe Steak House and Red Lobster offer options within walking distance. Free parking is available along the boardwalk. There are 3 lots behind the Ilikai that offer $6.00 for 10 hours or $1.00 per hour. Valet parking is a bit expensive at $28/day. Planning to rent a car? discount hawaii carrental has good rates get some quotes from them on different dates to find the best rate. Advantage RentaCar is located in the lobby. There is also an Activity desk in the main lobby that can help you book tours. A tour desk across the street will help find the best rates. The pink-trolley station is by the main entrance of the Ilikai, alongwith the local buses. World Class shopping at the Ala Moana Mall is a 15 minute walk.
