Waikiki Banyan apartment description

BLUE BANYAN is a dream come true which the owners Eva-Maria and Gudrun are happy to share with you. Their 1 bedroom apartment on the 10th floor of Waikiki Banyan (Tower 2) was recently completely remodeled from a standard condo into a cleverly redesigned vacation rental. If you appreciate a memorable setting for your Waikiki vacation and are looking for a stylish home away from home - you will be very happy here. Treat yourself and your partner to a special place where you can relax and feel good after a busy day.

The hip designer furniture, very comfortable queen size bed, blue walls to match the ocean views - they thought of everything. The unusual wicker chairs are very comfortable and swivel in any direction . The DESIGN WITHIN REACH day bed/couch is a perfect place to enjoy the great view but it can become a comfortable king size bed in seconds - ideal option for 2 singles. This apartment is not suited for families with small children. The Art is far from generic and most of it are photos taken by Eva in Hawaii.

The gourmet kitchen is set up with personally selected dishes, fine glassware and circular cookware, - a treat for hobby cooks - everything is pretty, fun and yet functional and of course very clean. Even cooking will be a pleasure here. Of course it has a dishwasher, a very quiet Bosch - after all you are all on vacation.

Enjoy brand new appliances , flat screen TV - DVD player. Private phone with free Oahu calls and free internet access with WIFI - ( also access in the Internet Cafe in the Banyan lobby in case if you do not want to bring a laptop). Shared washer dryer located on each floor.

The smooth tropical bamboo floor makes this apartment extra special and soft on your bare feet and very easy to keep clean. Custom made curtains from Europe are another brandnew beautiful addition and so is the modern lighting. In this apartment every detail has been thought of and nothing is standard. If needed this unit also has a new AC - but most of the the time the trade winds will keep you cool so you can enjoy the soft Hawaiian air day and night with doors wide open. The apartement is surprisingly quiet because the location is off the main street.

The bathroom was completely remodeled last October and now features a good size walk in shower. Plenty of quality towels are of course provided.

From every part of the apartment the ocean view is quite stunning, a lot of blues in every shade. Watch sailboats float by, surfers catching waves and enjoy sunsets in every color. Have a Zen moment and read a book on the ocean view lanai or watch surfers play in the water of Waikiki Beach. This is no beige place - come to Blue Banyan to fill up with Hawaii's happy rainbow of colors. Certainly at Sunset time!

The building offers many amenities, including pool, tennis and grills - as well as a Cafe offering delicious Sandwiches, salads and sweets.

Free self parking is provided to our guest - a daily savings of about $25

Stroll to Waikiki Beach in 3 minutes, enjoy a wide selection of international restaurants on and off the beaten track. Walk to Kapiolani Park, Zoo, Aquarium and even Diamond Head . At Blue Banyan you are never far from Fun in the Sun. And don't miss the wonderful Saturday farmers market behind Diamond Head.

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About: Eva and Gudrun saw this Banyan apartment and fell in love with the view and bought it right away. Every piece of furniture was soon replaced with something that they would enjoy , a bamboo floor was installed and the typical white - beige color scheme was transfered into a warm and welcoming palette of tropical colors which mirror the sea , the sun and the fauna of Hawaii. They would like to welcome you to enjoy this little paradise in Waikiki. Many guest have returned several times already , many come from far away - and nobody wants to leave.

                      Why Waikiki Banyan:
                      the location close to Kapiolani Park is perfect and the weather nearly always sunny and with a tradewind to cool things down. Fantastic sunsets, great restaurants of all styles and tastes, and so much to do close by. Waikiki has so much more than high rises and like most world famous cities has become much more stylish. All the famous historical Hotels have been renovated and are shiny stars along Waikiki Beach. Many uncrowded beaches are very close by - just explore the Diamond Head and Kahala area for miles of empty white sand beaches, or walk around the park or Diamond Head. Fantastic Farmers markets for your food shopping are close by and of course great shopping in a relaxed boulevard atmosphere .

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      you can get along here without a car, but since parking is free at the Banyan we recommend that you take a car at least for some days during your stay. Only with a car will you really enjoy Oahu and will be able to visit the most beautiful areas this beautiful island has to offer. Coastal drives or up into the mountains and valleys will make your stay so much more interesting, but if you can't drive - Waikiki and all of Oahu has a very good public transport bus system.
