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.

The condo is in a very popular building with great amenities and is located just a block from one of the most famous beaches in the world. 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.

               

              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!
