About Michael Job, Broker-Salesperson, Faith Naluai LLC, Manager of Ownership
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 hold a Hawaii Broker -Salesperson license with Koko Resorts. My wife is from Calgary, Canada, and was a registered nurse 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 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.
Michael Job, Broker-Salesperson, Faith Naluai LLC, Manager of Ownership purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Michael Job, Broker-Salesperson, Faith Naluai LLC, Manager of Ownership chose Diamond Head - Kapahulu - St. Louis
I 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 35th floor ocean views of both the Gold Coast and the surf breaks over St. Augustine's Chapel. My wife is from Calgary, Canada. We've lived in Colorado and central California on the coast. We like the fact that the unit faces west, so there is no morning sun waking us up. We bought this unit at the Waikiki Banyan because it is only one block to the beach and two blocks to a huge park in southern Waikiki. 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.
What makes this Condo unique
I just returned from staying in our condo last week. Every morning I took 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. Every afternoon I went 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.

The timing was unfortunate as many things were closed due to corona virus but other than that everything was perfect
We only wished that he pool and jacuzzi were not closed.
Fabulous stay in Waikiki
Unit was terrific! High floor with great view of Waikiki Beach only one block away. We travel to the area at least once every year and have stayed at various Waikiki hotels, time share at Ko Olina and numerous units at the Waikiki Banyan. These units are the the biggest bargain - a beautiful one bedroom apartment. Free parking, fully equipped kitchen, terrace, pool and use of BBQ units - all the comforts without the huge price. Will be back again.
Thanks for the great review and very pleased you enjoyed our unit. Look forward to having you stay with us again.
Waikiki Banyan high floor w view.
Love the view, closeness to the beach and Diamondhead. Lovely condo, nice kitchen.
Great ocean views, in a great location and a new air conditioner.
This was the second time we have rented from Michael and we could not have been happier.
One block to Waikiki Beach, one of the best beaches in the world. Two blocks away is Kapiolani Park with the Honolulu Zoo, an aquarium, large green fields. Walk through the park to the foot of Diamond Head or walk along the beach. Adjacent the park is a protected fish preserve you can go snorkeling in. Our property is one block from the beach. The main street of Waikiki with all types of restaurants from fancy to fast food & a wide array of stores is one block away. An area protected by a seawall is also one block away.
