About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 4)

The the popular SKY apartment has been remodeled, repainted and refurbished by the new owner in May 2014 and has a whole new luxurious style. The proud owner has spared no expense to make it a very special place to be.

Of course the incredible ocean view from the 33rd floor has not changed and gets a lot of attention.

Besides a comfortable king bed it now also has a designer queen sofa sleeper , a real dining table with 4 chairs , flat screen TV (which can be watched from either room) . The addition of Shade blinds has given the living room an amazing contemporary look and now gives the apartment a soothing light even in sunny afternoons. Even closed you can see the beautiful blue ocean shine through. One of the very special features about this apartment is that it has lots of light and views from 3 windows. The lanai doors and the bedroom windows face the ocean . A 3rd window in the bedroom faces West. Only certain units have this added window and it makes a big difference. The 02 units of tower 2 have a particular popular location because it is an end unit and has the open view of Ohua street towards the beach.

A brand new quiet AC was installed, or keep your door open and let the Trade winds cool you naturally. The lanai is a perfect spot to take your breakfast or Happy hour drink and watch surfers and boats. In November the Lanai furniture was also upgraded , 2 new comfortable chairs and cocktail table .

Even the new color palette , a lagoon blue, rain forest green and sand , is a happy new change .

and last not least the totally renovated light and modern bathroom with a beautiful walk in shower and more spacious vanity area was just completed in October 2015.

Children are welcome , 4 guest maximum

Parking is free (a big savings in Waikiki), coin operated washer dryers on every floor.

Wifi is also provided at no charge as well as local phone calls.

The kitchen has been loaded with all new and pretty dishes and good cookware. counter top appliencesa are a Cuisinart, a blender, toaster, coffee maker and french press. Plenty of toys to enjoy some home cooking. There are many farmers markets in the area, the best one on Saturday at the KCC college behind Diamond Head

The Cafe in the lobby has bank machine and also a coin operated phone . Bring your cell phone to make calls from the room.

If you like to watch movies bring your Netflix sign in code. The TV is programmed to download movies from your account.

The building has a very large recreation deck with a big pool and gas grills

Great Location and Views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. It is in a very nice location near the Marriott. 1.5 blocks to the beach. The unit is on the 33rd floor and elevators can be a hassle to get as there are only 4 and most make many stops. The unit is a comfortable place to stay. Kitchen is a bit dated and the laundry location is a bit misleading. The laundry is shared at the far end of the hall and you need $2 in quarters for a wash or dry.

There are plenty of ABC stores close by to pick up some essentials. The nearest grocery store is about 6-7 blocks away. The pool area is ok, we didn't spend much time there. The free parking was nice, but getting in and out of the garage could be a hassle at times. The condo was well stocked with towels, beach stuff, and kitchen pans and small appliances.

The views from the balcony were quite good in two directions. You could see the ocean and the zoo. Overall we liked the place and it is a good value for the money.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this unit. Perfect view, clean, great sofa bed and king size bed. Equipped with all kitchen and bathroom supplies. It has all you need and more. One recommendation, it would be great to have some hooks in the bathroom to hang some clothes, towels and shower needs either a sliding door or a curtain. Water gets all over the floor when taking a shower. Highly recommend this unit.

WOW! This condo is amazing. From the view to the overall condition of the unit.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything you needed to the bedroom with the king bed and dresser for you clothes and tons of room in the closet. The bathroom was fantastic and very modern.The only thing that I would recommend is a hand held shower and a few hooks to hang clothes on. Within walking distance to shopping and restaurants a car is not required or if you want to drive the island - which I recommend they have free parking. Have been to Oahu many times and have stayed at the Waikiki Banyan and this unit is at the top of my list. Highly recommended.

Thank you to the owners for sharing their wonderful home with us. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful view and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the condo.

It has a great view (from the balcony as well as directly from the bed) and a perfect location close to the beach, the zoo and the beachwalk.

The included parking is a plus in Waikiki.

Very good communication and support from the host. Also possible in German for Germans who prefer that.
