About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy spectacular views of the Blue Pacific from this 35th floor unit Waikiki Banyan Tower II condo. Our unit has ocean views (from living room, bedroom and balcony), probably the best at the Waikiki Banyan (and the our annual property tax bill seems to confirm it), of both the Golf Coast and Canoe and Queen’s surf breaks over St. Augustine Chapel. We also have a partial view of Diamond Head and a view of Kapiolani park adjacent to the Honolulu Zoo. This high floor Waikiki Banyan unit faces west and has direct, frontal panoramic ocean views. Of our five condos, because of its unparalleled views (not reflected in photos), the Hawaii County Assessor sends us for this condo the highest property tax bill every year.

Our unit has a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioner, DVD & CD player, free wifi, and free unassigned parking in Banyan's large attached garage structure. There is a lanai (balcony) facing the ocean with a table and two chairs for breakfast.

In residence guests can enjoy our sixth floor pool deck with a large swimming pool, two jacuzzis, a sauna, tennis court, electric coin operated (quarters) BBQ grills, lounge sunning chairs around pool, children play structure, fast food booth. Up to four persons staying in a condo can use the pool deck at any one time.

Unit has a cheerful island motif and was upgraded March 7, 2017 with new kitchen maple cabinets, kitchen center island, granite countertops, tile floors throughout, new oven & microwave, new wall art work. Bathroom was enlarged and upgraded two years ago (granite counter top, new cabinet, cast iron tub, travertine tile). We installed a new flat screen Sharp 40 inch TV. This will turn "standard condo" to "deluxe condo." Free unassigned parking in Waikiki Banyan's attached multilevel parking structure and free wifi.

The bedroom has a very comfortable king sized bed and the living room has a pull out queen sized sofa bed (comfortably sleeps one) . We can also bring in a high quality inflatable queen bed, twin bed(s), or play pen. There is a full sized kitchen with a microwave, large assortment of pots, pans, dishes, glasses etc... All linens are provided. The laundry room is down the hallway on the right. We supply hair dryer, iron & board, beach towels, some toiletries.

We don't supply beach equipment (too diverse and short lived) however our guests leave us a steady stream of it which is available for use.

Our condo does not get the morning sun waking you up. Each exquisite view is a work of glorious art!

Mahalo, Best wishes


Great location, great condo! Very well equipped. We had a great time at the beach and pool. We are coming back! Mahalo!

Aloha Michael

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that we really enjoyed our 10 days in your condo on the 35th floor at the Waikiki Banyan. It was clean, very well equipped and in an excellent location. We spent many mornings and evenings out on the spacious lanai having our breakfast or dinner. The views are beautiful! The condo had absolutely everything we needed, including beach chairs and towels. It's a short walk to the beach, shopping, bus and the zoo. We had a wonderful time and would definitely rent your condo again!

Mahalo nui loa!

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 Faith Naluai LLC (808)395-0127). I've been married 25 years, and have two college age sons. My wife is from Calgary, Canada, and is 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sitting on the lanai, casting a contemplative gaze at the ants (way below on street) scurrying among the ABC stores in consideration of cheap jewelry, I was momentarily distracted by two warm soft compassionate eyes gazing back at me, from the chair next, with a hint of distance. The eyes showed total relief from the winter of their discontent. The eyes are my vacation. And the eyes were comfortable, safe, and ready for adventure. The eyes were HAPPY with my selection of accommodation. The eyes enjoyed:

-The View

-The Location: close enough but sufficient away; High away from the traffic and the spring break .......

Great property next to the heart of Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little condo that's close to everything Waikiki. It's on the eastern edge of Waikiki, two blocks from the beach and within walking distance to anything in Waikiki. It's probably a 20 minute walk to the western edge of Waikiki.

The condo itself is the perfect size for a couple, with all the amenities that we required. The lanai (balcony) was spacious, we spent a lot of time on it. The view is great, there are a few tall buildings between the condo and the ocean, so I'd say about half the ocean is blocked from view, but you can still see plenty of surfers and boats go by. The only issue we had was that the condo had a bit of a musty smell when we first got in, I suspect that it hadn't been used in a while. We just aired it out for a day or two and the smell went away.

You can't go wrong staying here, it's close to everything and yet being two streets over from the beach means it's a bit quieter. You could get a place with better views and closer to the action, but you'd probably pay 2 or 3 times as much as this place. Highly recommended.

Great Holiday Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We loved the room. The tile floor is modern and low maintenance. The large kitchen island was excellent. Having an oven with the stove gave us lots of cooking options. All appliances worked well. Air conditioning also worked well. The king size bed was very comfortable. All this is topped off with a lovely view of the ocean. Room comes with a free parking pass (but we had no car so did not use it).
