Amazing and unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

Yes, absolutely stunning ocean views .We come every year and we have never stayed in such amazing unit in the Waikiki Banyan . Rebecca our host came by to greet us,visited and shared fun things for us to do on the island. We went to Germain Luau and had a blast. My husband even got on stage and danced the hula for me. All sorts of restaurants within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed the rec deck on the sixth floor and even created our own masterpiece at the bbq grill. Mahalo Rebecca for making our vacation unforgettable!!! We hope to get so lucky to get the same unit next year. Jane Lorenzo

집처럼 편한 숙소

  • 5 of 5

다녀온지 벌써 5개월이 지났네요. 지난 8월 일주일을 집처럼 편하게 가족과 다녀온후 그 기억이 너무 좋아서 다시 하와이 여행을 계획하다 숙소 찾는중에 발견해 반가운 마음에 리뷰 남깁니다.

부기보드, 비치체어, 아이스박스등 유용하게 잘 썻구요. 여러가지 보드게임들 많이 있어 재밌게 지냈습니다. 수영장물도 깨끗했고 자쿠지에서 저녁때 바라보는 다이아몬드헤드 모습은 인상적입니다. 침대는 더블사이즈로 두개인데.. 4명의 가족이 사용하기에 아주 좋습니다.

하나 마이너스는 에어컨 사용시 물받이를 가끔 갈아줘야한다는것. 그런데 우리 가족은 창문 열어놓고 지내는것 좋아해 에어컨 사용을 많이 하지는 않았습니다. 좋은 추억 남긴 가족에게 훌륭한 숙소입니다

Awesome condo with a great view of the ocean and only a block to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo. Very nicely decorated and Sonja provided everything we could possibly need. Especially loved the beach chairs and coolers which we used every day! Access when we arrived was easy and having free parking in the garage was awesome. The beds were comfortable, bathroom had a nice shower with great pressure and the kitchen was fully stocked. As for the Waikiki Banyan itself, we thought the hallways were a bit outdated, but the lobby and elevators were classy! The mini-mart stocked everything and was convenient and open late and it was great having an ATM on-site. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Mahalo, Sonja. We had a wonderful time.

Great location, a home away from home:)

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 10 days and were very happy with the condo. The views are indeed fantastic especially considering this is not beachfront property. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai every morning as well as a glass of wine by sunset at night. As we had rented a car for the entire time the free parking was a bonus as well as all of the small details that I did not expect such as the picnic coolers. We only spent 2 days at Waikiki as we travelled to much less populated ( and by far more beautiful) beaches on the island and used the coolers to pack our lunches and water bottles. The beach chairs were also a very nice added touch. The kitchen is completely stocked with everything and more! We also took advantage of running every morning so the lock box on the door was fabulous so we did not have to worry about packing a key into our running shorts:) The only negative I have is that ( as mentioned previously) the beds could use some updating. The one bed closest to the windows sags terribly in the middle so my husband & I after 2 nights switched to the other bed which was better but not fantastic. If the mattresses were upgraded an idea worthwhile exploring would be to replace one with a queen and keep the other as a double as I realize square footage is a factor. Otherwise a really great trip with smooth & great communication!

Great stay right by Waikiki!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed a week at Sonja's condo and it was a great place to stay! Everything that she said was in the condo was provided and it is exactly like it is shown in the photos. We had no problems while we stayed there and communication was easy through the whole process with Sonja. We especially enjoyed using the boogie board and beach chairs provided along with the close proximity to the beach. Waking up to the beautiful view was amazing. Was a little concerned with the beds after reading the reviews but my husband and I like a softer bed so it wasn't too much of an issue for us. We did utilize the kitchen throughout our stay and she had everything we needed to cook as far as kitchen supplies goes. The only thing that we found a little annoying was that the barbecues available were ones you had to pay to use with quarters so we just decided to head back up and cook everything on the stove and in the oven. Other than that everything else was great and we would recommend her place to anyone! Thank you!

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure to show you Hawaii's Aloha Spirit! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay. I'm so glad to see that you love ones of the things I love the most --- the view! It's always enjoyable! --- In the morning while having a cup of coffe and watching the surfers; catching the sparkle on the ocean and seeing the boats in the afternoon; or while sipping a glass of wine seeing another amazing sunset. We look forward to having you back again as our guests. Aloha to you both! Mahalo for taking your time to leave your thoughtful comments.

Good Accommodation in Waikiki

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for almost two weeks in late June early July. Comments are as follows:

Pre Arrival

Sonja was excellent with her communications and responded in a timely manner to questions. No concerns at all with this aspect.

The Condo

The condo was found to be pretty much as described, very neat and tidy. Entry was easy and convenient. It was great to have the lock box for the key as we used this and didn't take keys or valuables to the beach. One day my wife's dress was stolen, so do be careful of what you take with you! The view from the condo was as described, very nice!

It has been renovated and is in good condition but isn't a luxury condo (which is fairly reflected by the price). It is perfectly suitable for families with young kids. The main selling point of the condo is the location to the beach which is good. Provides easy access to the beach and within walking distance (for most people) to all the main places in Waikiki. We did take taxis to get to the other side where our friends were staying.

One comment on the beds... There are two double beds in the condo and this is well described in the condo advertisement - no issues with that.

We were a family of two adults and a seven year old. How anyone could fit two people in one of the "double" beds is beyond me. They are not suitable for more than one person, perhaps with the exception of two kids. Additionally, the beds 'sagged' in the middle and probably need to be replaced.

The Building

The facilities within the building (pool / tennis court etc...) are ok but did have a bit of a run down feel to them. I'm not sure a lot of money is spent on maintenance particularly in regard to the pool area. Unfortunately the pool was closed for a couple of days as some kids had been tampering with it. The same thing happened the two days before we got there, so they're assuming it was the same kids. The building has a busy feel as would be expected but this doesn't detract from the quality of the stay.

We would advise people to be wary of the small mini market/shop which is in the building. The prices are ridiculous and completely exploitive of the largely transient population in the building. Also, my wife noticed the shop keeper over-charging on one occasion.

Overall, this is a good Waikiki option. Sonja was very easy to deal with and ensured the security deposit was refunded very quickly which was greatly appreciated.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in my condo! Thank you for your detailed and thoughtful review; I really appreciate your taking the time to do so. Please know that the Waikiki Banyan is currently in the process of renovating and making updates to the recreation deck to better address today's needs of our residents and guests. As you can imagine, the pool area gets a lot of use, and it is regularly maintained. It is unfortunate that some persons created disturbances (thinking vandalism is "funny"), and I do apologize for the inconveniences to you because of their actions. I am sorry that you found the beds to be not to your satisfaction. Although the beds were purchased less than four years ago, I will definitely look into replacing them again when I am in Waikiki later this year. Again, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! Mahalo for taking your time and such care to leave your your review. Much Aloha to you and your family!
