Outrigger canoe at Waikiki Beach. There are hundreds of shops within walking distance. The beautiful Kapioliani Park, a short stroll away. One of our favorite things to do is walk to the beach bars and enjoy a cold one. The more populated section of Waikiki Beach is great for people watching!

Waikiki Banyan condo description

You want a vacation. You NEED a vacation!

You want a clean home-away-from-home with a great location, enchanting views and lots of amenities. Well, this recently remodeled piece of paradise at Waikiki Beach with ocean and diamond head view is the perfect place for you!

Everything is new: appliances, tile flooring, linens, bedding and furnishings so it is clean, clean, clean! It is a comfy 600 square foot condo that sleeps up to five with 1 bedroom, 1 bath, full kitchen, living room and lanai. The bedroom has 2 queen beds and the living room has a sofa bed.

It is also close to the Honolulu zoo, Kapiolani park, Waikiki aquarium, restaurants, live music venues, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, hiking, farmers markets and many more activities.

If you have been to Waikiki before you will really appreciate that this property comes with free parking. And if you don't want to drive, it is right next to bus stops that give you access to the whole island.

If this unit is not available for your desired dates check out our 2 bedroom Penthouse in Waikiki (VRBO Listing # 491230).


VISITING OTHER HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
Many visitors to Hawaii like to visit more than one island during their trip. And for good reason. Each island has its own personality and features.

We have a beautiful custom-built home in Waikoloa Village on Hawaii Island (also known as The Big Island). It is located on the Kona side of the island near the South Kohala resorts. It features awesome beaches where you can get away from the crowds, access to the resorts, and top ranked golf courses. What sets it apart from other islands is viewing the active lava flow at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the observatories on top of Mauna Kea (the tallest mountain in the world when measured from its base under the ocean).

Please see VRBO listing #23146 for more information.


NOTE ABOUT REVIEWS FOR OUR WAIKIKI BANYAN CONDO
The reason there are so few traveler reviews for this property is because when we started renting it in June we were using a property manager that booked most of the summer reservations. He had his own web pages for the property so any reviews would have been on those pages. We are now doing our own booking and will be receiving reviews on this VRBO page starting in September 2013.

                      • Wow, there are so many things to see and do on this island! Of course number one on the list is waikiki beach which is only 250 meters away. Safe swimming for kids, surfing lessons and board rentals and people watching. The honolulu zoo and kapiolani park are only a couple of minutes walk. Pearl harbor is an important historical site and is the main reason some people come to hawaii....moreless

                        Excellent location. One block from beach, shopping, restaurants and attractions. Lovely modernized condo, very comfortable, clean, unit had everything we needed. Owner checked with us to make sure everything was good. We could walk to everything and everywhere we wanted to go. Would certainly go back to this condo.

                        My husband and I rented this condo for a week to visit my son who is a Marine stationed on Oahu. Our oldest son traveled along with us to make this a family vacation. When researching a place to stay, I came upon this unit that looked great but did not have many reviews. I e-mailed the owner and he called me immediately. He explained that the company he hired to manage the unit did not work out and previous reviews were not available. He explained that the unit was completely remodeled. All communication after that was done by e-mail. When we arrived, the place was better than pictured. Using a key code lock to get in was great, we never had to worry who had the key. The unit was like new and very clean. We liked the kitchen island to sit around to eat and play cards. I liked the fact that it had pocket doors that would close off the sleeping area from the living area and that the sink and mirror were separate from the toilet and shower. This made it very easy for the four of us to shower and get ready to go out all at the same time with some privacy. It is an end unit and very quiet. The view from the lanai is Diamond Head with a partial view of the ocean. It is a one block walk to the beach. Coming and going in the parking garage was easy. We walked downtown many times to eat dinner. Our favorite restaurant was theYard House. Great food and drinks with not as long of a wait as the ever popular Cheesecake Factory. Lots of shopping close by. I can't speak of where to grocery shop because we were able to get groceries pretty cheap on base. We are a family that likes to go on our own instead of booking tours. We hiked Diamond Head, Maunawili Falls, Makapu'u Lighthouse, Koko Head Trail, and Hanauma Bay. We went early to Pearl Harbor for free tickets to the USS Arizona. We also spent some time on the beach and at the pool. The pool area is very nice and has two hot tubs. Our week at the Waikiki Banyan was great. We had no problems with the condo and would definitely stay there again.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, people with disabilities, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                        Owner response: Aloha Rebecca, Thanks for taking the time to write such a thorough review. It makes us feel good that our goal of helping folks to have great vacations is being accomplished! Thanks for the tip about the Yard House. We haven't been there before and will have to check it out.

                        This was our first time traveling to Oahu, and we needed a place to accommodate 4 adults and 2 small children. Steve was awesome enough to allow 6 of us to stay here even though his condo says it sleeps 5. The condo was just as it was described -- it was clean, updated, and roomy enough for all of us. In the end, space didn't matter much since we were out and about most of the time. The condo was so convenient to everything -- 5 minutes to the beach, 10 minute walk to the zoo, and walking distance to restaurants and shops. If we are ever in the area again, I would definitely look this place up.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, tourists without a car.

                        Owner response: Aloha Micah, thanks for the review. Our goal is to have all guests enjoy the property as much as you did. We hope to see you again!

                        The apartment was perfect for us both. Apart from the minor issue over door code access ( which Steve was able to correct over the phone) we had no problems during our 8 night stay. We had friends staying in another apartment in the same complex and they were very impressed with our apartment taking Steve's name for future reference. We liked being close enough to the beach and also the park for the early morning walks. We'll be back I am sure!

                        This is a beautiful apartment. All is exactly as described. Lots of light and space with the ability to close off the bedroom or leave open. Owner is extremely easy to get hold of and responsive. Very accommodating when we arrived early with lots of luggage. Let us leave luggage and check in when cleaning complete. He almost feels like we know him which we don't. . Location of the actual unit at the end of the corridor makes it very quiet only one other apartment nearby so no noisy passing neighbours on the way to the lift. Lift is close but not so as to be noisy. heard no dump trucks which many reviews complain of for other locations. Sort stroll to great beach with sea wall to protect from high waves and also close to supermarket -Food Pantry to buy groceries meat and veg. Also many restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. Only thing missing was the iron and board but Steve says he will install pronto. We only had 4 nights there but would love to have stayed longer. Have no hesitation booking this one .

                        Owner response: Thank you for the review. BTW, I got the iron and ironing board and gave it to the guests following you. So next time you come it will be there! Aloha, Steve

                        We came as a family of 6 people. The place is bit crowded for us, but we were prepared for that. The condo is generally clean, and the kitchen is wonderful. My parents like to eat homemade meal, so we used the kitchen a lot. Location is good as well - close to the beach, bus stops, and shopping areas. The owner is very nice. He answered our questions /concerns right away, which made the booking process very easy.

                        Owner response: Thanks for the review Vicky. Yes, your group was larger than we normally allow. We should probably stick to our limit in the future. This is a new unit for us so feedback is very helpful. We hope you'll return (with a smaller party!) to our condo again.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: We have been in the Hawaii vacation rental business since 1993. After selling our former Big Island vacation rental company, A Piece of Paradise, we have relocated to Waikiki. We are licensed real estate agents and like to help folks buy their own Hawaiian piece of paradise.

                      Why the Owner Chose Waikiki Banyan:
                      We scoured Waikiki for months looking for just the right property and finally found this gem. Fantastic location, great views of Diamond Head and the ocean, awesome amenities, close to an incredible number of restaurants and bars and to top it all off, only a block from Waikiki Beach, the zoo and Kapiolani park!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The Waikiki Banyan has great amenities: large swimming pool, spa, sauna, tennis court, basketball court, nice barbecue area and a playground for the kiddies. There is a snack bar next to the pool and a coffee shop and convenience store by the lobby. And if you've been to Waikiki before you know what a great feature our FREE parking is!
