About the Property
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
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 bought this condo for its ocean views.
FREE PARKING in the Waikiki Banyan's garage is included as well as FREE WIFI INTERNET service. Absolutely NO SMOKING.

Beach towels at office. Laundry room across hallway two doors down. FREE WIFI INTERNET. Phone with free local calls. Alarm clock/radio. Cable TV. DVD/CD player.

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 two queen sized beds in the bedroom as of June 1, 2016 and a microfiber double sized pull out sofa bed in the living room. We installed a LED flatscreen TV. 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 (in residence guests only, four per condo maximum on pool deck) 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 Speedi shuttle from airport to Waikiki Banyan ($25 round trip). Mini mart & snack bar in building. Walk to the Food Pantry supermarket at 2370 Kuhio Avenue. Walk to Parkshore Starbucks across from beach. Longer walk to new Safeway at 888 Kapahulu Avenue.

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.

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.
Leon R. (Australia)
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.
Betty & Al, Retired couple (Florida)
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.
Jason & Mary (San Francisco area)
I really enjoyed my stay at unit 2912 tower 1 at the Banyan. It was very nicely decorated, clean and updated. The view was very nice. I shall for sure go back to this unit. Thank you.
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.

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 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 Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis, Honolulu, HI, USA:
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.
