Waikiki Banyan condo description

Enjoy spectacular views of the Blue Pacific (one block away) from our upgraded (new tile, bathroom, cabinets, appliances, fixtures) & tastefully decorated Waikiki Banyan 29th floor condo.

From our 29th floor unit on the ocean (west) end of Tower I (right next to west corner, best ocean views) , the Pacific can be seen stretching across the horizon high above the pitched copper roof and steeple of St. Augustine Church. Queen's surf break, Canoe surf break, the beach and palm trees are visible. There are also eastern views of the mountains, golf course, and canal. Tower I at the Waikiki Banyan is at a northwest angle and benefits from refreshing trade winds blowing from the mountains.

We prefer inquiries via e-mail so we can respond when we have our availability calendars on hand. No solicitors please.

This condo at the Waikiki Banyan is large, comfortable, air conditioned, and private. Breakfast on USABLE LANAI (balcony). Full kitchen including pots, pans, cutlery. All linens/towels provided. Beach towels at office. Fresh sheets and towels can be obtained in Suite 501 Tower I at the Banyan. Laundry room across hallway two doors down. FREE WIFI INTERNET. Phone with free local calls.

We installed for your convenience and privacy separate bathroom access from the living room and bedroom in our 29th floor Waikiki Banyan unit. NO PETS OR SMOKING PLEASE.

Our Waikiki Banyan condo is owner occupied part of the year, and we welcome vacationers who will take good care of it. We painted the walls in decorator colors and had an interior designer redo floors, cabinets, and wall decor. Condo has been totally upgraded with new cabinets, granite countertops, and tile throughout including tiled bathroom. This Waikiki Banyan condo has a queen sized bed in the bedroom with a comfortable memory foam pad and a microfiber double sized pull out sofa bed in the living room. The bedroom is separated from living room by sliding wood doors.

The Waikiki Banyan is a fun resort ONE BLOCK from the warm sands and blue water of the world's most famous beach. Soak up the sun, stroll on ocean board walk to lighthouse at foot of Diamond Head, swim in warm ocean (swimming area protected by sea wall), snorkel across from the Zoo in fish preserve, surf, or just relax on the Waikiki Banyan's comfortable lounge chairs on recreation deck near pool or in shade. Nearby churches. The huge recreation deck on the sixth floor of the Waikiki Banyan offers a large freshwater pool, jet spa, sauna & showers, putting green, coin operated electric barbecues, children's playground and take out/snack bar.

Making it exceptional our 29th floor unit is in the second stack from the west end of Tower I and has one of the best ocean views at the Waikiki Banyan, for which hotels would charge a small fortune per night. What's a vacation in Hawaii without panoramic ocean views, watching surfers from your living room, and spectacular sunsets! Each Blue Pacific view is like a unique work of art!

Bus stop one block away from Waikiki Banyan. Ala Muana shopping center is 10 minutes away by bus. You don't need to rent a car. Take Robert's or Reliable shuttle from airport to Waikiki Banyan ($22 round trip). Mini mart & snack bar in building. Walk to the Food Pantry supermarket at 2370 Kuhio Avenue.

Aloha Michael,

Thank You! You certainly have the best condos here in Waikiki. They are in a perfect location, spacious, clean and comfortable.
What a view! We have enjoyed our time outside looking at the ocean. This is our second visit to your Waikiki Banyan condos and we will be back. Thanks again. Mahalo.

Aloha Michael,

Hi Michael,

Just a quick note to let you know we had a fabulous stay at your apartment at the Banyan. It had great views and location convenient to everything especially the beach. So thank you.

Michael,

My wife and I had a wonderful 30 day stay in your Waikiki Banyan condo.The views were magnificent both day and night, and the location could not have been better.

We had no need for a car,with so many eateries,shopping,
the beach, and a beautiful park within easy walking distance. The bus stop at the corner took care of our travel needs.

We have visited five of the Hawaiian Islands and we enjoyed this location the most by far.

Hi Michael,

We had a very pleasant stay at your 29th floor condo. Nice view of the ocean and mountain. It is comfortable and close to everything plus a free parking space! We have been going to Hawaii almost every year since 1982 staying at different hotels and condos and we find your unit at the Banyan has the best value around. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Oahu.

Mahalo,

Hi Michael!

My sister and I had a great stay at your condo.
We really loved the location and the view.
We would certainly recommend it to our friends should they visit Hawaii and we will certainly stay again when we visit.
Thank you

                        This condo has everything you need for a great vacation.Comfort,Cleanliness,Views,walking distance to the famous Waikiki beach, shops and restaurants. Straight forward instructions for arrival to the condo and loved the code pad so we didn't have to carry keys.Parking Space for those who rent a car(we did, and found some great places and beaches around the island)the bus stop is also outside to take you along waikiki to hotels,restaurants and the Ala Moana shopping center. The owner couldn't have been more helpful, he was very nice and pleasant to work with and even contacted us while we were there to make sure everything was ok. We would definitely recommend this property 100%. We didn't want to leave and will hopefully be back one day!

We have used VRBO at other locations and found here at the Waikiki Banyan "Paradise". Michael was easy to work with. There were no hidden surprises. Looking forward to another stay in this unit.

                        We have rented from Michael Job for several years.. We just spent 2 weeks in this unit and loved the view of the ocean and high rise hotels. It is so close to the bus so we never needed a car rental, although if you do rent a car there is a free parking pass. The condo is very comfortable and has a second TV in the bedroom. Koko Resorts who handle all the maintenance are always available for extra towels, bedding and beach chairs. They rate very high in the services they provide. The pool is ideal with a green grass turf all around the pool to eliminate slipping on concrete. All the stores are in walking distance of the condo. This unit has been upgraded with new granite and cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom. We are so happy to rent from Michael as he is a VERY honest person to deal with. We love to tell all of our friends about him and why they should rent one of his condos for their vacation. You cant't go wrong!!!!. Dick & Maureen, Edmonds, Wa

                        We stayed here in June 2013 and loved the unit. The owner was good to deal with and he always responded very quickly. The unit was clean and the view was amazing! You have an unobstructed view of the ocean. You can actually see the ocean from the balcony without having to lean over it. The balcony was great to have breakfast on. We loved having the beach chairs to take to the beach. The location was really good. A 5 minute walk to the beach and close walking distance to lots of great restaurants and shopping. The air conditioning worked very well! We never had any problems with noise. We loved staying here, and would definitely stay again and recommend it to friends and family!

                        This condo is one of the better values in Waikiki. Aside from the ideal location and ocean view, the unit is comfortable, well maintained and well managed. It was the first time that I have rented directly from an owner and the experience was flawless. I particularly liked the electronic coded entry system, which saved me the bother of carrying a key or entry card. The two entry doors to the bathroom and the separate vanity area are convenient if you have two adults sharing the unit and I found that the memory foam topper on the bed makes it as comfortable as the pillow top mattress that I have at home. The tennis courts were closed during my stay, but the public courts are only a couple of blocks away. In fact, everything is within easy walking distance. I highly recommend this property.

                        Two blocks+ to ocean, absolutely great location. Close so surfing, walking distance to almost everything. Parking was very easy, unit very clean and well-maintained. Appliances new and nice coffee pot. Coin operated washer and dryer just down the hall. View from ocean is if you are looking left out NW facing lani. Road noise is typically bad in waikiki, but this unit was much better than most. Disappointing was that tennis courts had been closed for two months and no date in sight for opening, there was no information about that from Banyan web site. Because I heard about work being done on the Banyan before booking I looked on their website, and even read over the owner's meeting minutes. The pool was also closed, but that was unscheduled and reopened our last day. Owner was good to work with, even when my mom accidently trashed the email with the door code! He was very helpful on the phone with our mistake. (I do wish we had notification about the tennis courts being closed, we brought 6 rackets to hawaii and expected to play each night.) Other than the tennis courts, my only complaint is the beds. A really bad mattress with a 3inch foam pad on the top. My husband ended sleeping on the floor using the crummy spring mattress from the sofa bed. I would recomend the Banyan.

                        Owner response: Thanks for the review. We regret the tennis court was shut down. The Homeowner's Association is redoing the exterior including necessary balcony railing replacement of the west side of Tower II and for safety reasons shut down the tennis court. They've completed the exterior of the east side of Tower II and then will be working on the exteriors of Tower I. Since their progress depends on weather and extent of repairs necessary (only uncovered when contractor inspects on scaffolds the entire face of a building), we don't know when they will be working on a particular area. As our guest stated this is a temporary issue. No one previously told us bed is not comfortable . We have a high quality contour foam pad on queen sized bed and will examine the bed for adequate comfort. In one condo a guest asked us to install plywood boards under bed mattress for the duration of her stay as her husband had a bad back, which we removed afterwards. If this mattress needs replacement, we'll replace it. Mahalo.

                        Thanks Michael for a great stay at your condo on the 29th floor at the Banyan. The room was as represented in the write up and had great views of the ocean. Wi Fi was fast and really useful for sending pictures and emails home.The kitchen was well used by our family of 4 , provided everything needed for our meals, and the full size fridge was welcome. When an appliance broke down you were right on it and it was replaced that very same day; excellent service! We made use of both the bed and pull out couch, as well as the inflatable twin we asked for. We also really appreciated having our own beach chairs and boogie board to use. Surf boards and other beachy items we borrowed from the office downstairs, which was nice to have available for our kids. We also made use of the BBQs located on the 6th floor pool deck. It may have been a bit of a pain having to dig up quarters to use them, but we really liked having the option for our dinners that we ate in. Alll in all a great holiday and we were very pleased! Thanks again!

                        My wife two children and I stayed here for two weeks from July 29th, 2012 until august 10th. We chose this property for the views of the ocean, proximity to Waikiki beach, and on price. Needless to say we were not disappointed in any respect. Our younger children loved sleeping on the pullout sofa, while we found the dividing doors closing off the bedroom very nice for privacy and watching tv late in the evening. Michael was very helpful with anything we needed, and helped us greatly when we ran into a bit of car trouble (thanks again Michael). Overall you cannot go wrong with this condo, especially when comparing it to neighbouring hotels that charge an arm and a leg for a view like this condo has. Mahalo Michael

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I have an MBA from UCLA in international finance and for three years was employed by Credit Suisse, Los Angeles. Subsequently, I was employed by Twentieth Century Fox Film Studios as Assistant to the Controller. I've been in all facets of the real estate business thirty years. I've been married for 25 years and have two college age sons. My wife is from Calgary, Canada, and is a registered nurse and works in cardiac rehab. She also has a Master's in Health Education from Loma Linda University. I particularly enjoy snorkeling and swimming, which I do daily. I don't particularly like driving when on vacation, so the Waikiki Banyan, being one block from the beach, and two blocks from great snorkeling with restaurants and shopping everywhere is ideal. I hold a Hawaii Broker-Salesperson Real Estate License with Faith Naluai LLC

                      Why the Owner Chose Waikiki Banyan:
                      We bought this unit for the view. In 1962, as a ten year old, I stayed at the Princess Kaluani Hotel on the 12th floor (I believe) and was astounded at the incredible ocean view from the hotel room. Nearly half a century later, we bought this unit because of its incredible 29th floor ocean views as well as its views of the mountains, canal and golf course. My wife is from Calgary, Canada. We've lived in Colorado. We like the fact that the unit faces northwest, so there is no morning sun waking us up and this condo does not get the hot southern sun during the day. On most afternoons and early evenings the Trade Winds blow, so we don't have to use the air conditioner. We bought a unit at the Waikiki Banyan because it is only one block to the beach and two blocks to a huge park, Kapiolani Park, in southern Waikiki (close to open green space). We enjoy snorkeling and there is a large fish preserve across the street from the park with a beautiful reef and all types of tropical fish. The Banyan is a resort property with incredible amenities.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The condo's extensive upgrading has made it much more comfortable and attractive. The tiled bathroom, shower, kitchen, and living room give it a spacious, clean feel. By removing the center aisle kitchen counter, the condo has become much more spacious. You can take a 35 minute walk to the Lighthouse at the point on Diamond Head. The walk is along the ocean boardwalk, the Gold Coast, a quaint residential neighborhood, and up Diamond Head, bordering a scenic road. The view is spectacular. You can see great beaches with surfers below you. There are pathways down to the beautiful beaches. You can go snorkeling either in the fish preserve by the zoo and the park or on the reef to the north of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. It is an incredible, relaxing experience. The great advantage of the Waikiki Banyan is that it is two blocks from a huge undeveloped lush green park area.
