Waikiki Banyan Building Enhancement Projects

The Association of Owners of the Waikiki Banyan are very diligent and proactive when it comes to maintaining the building. We as owners are very pleased with how they continuously keep an eye on things that need to be maintained. Included in these projects are pool improvements, replacements of drain lines, and other repairs in different areas of the property that may require some water shut-offs for a number of hours on certain days. These maintenance schedules are created by the Association and we are not responsible for water shut-offs and pool and other closures to the building amenities that need maintenance. The Waikiki Banyan Association does its very best to work fast to reduce inconvenience to both owners and visitors.

My Daughter calls it our, "Hawaii Home." Great location, price, and accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we opened the door both of my daughters ran in circles, in pure excitement. My wife and I were wowed by the views.


-Parking is included! (This saves you up to $250+ per week)

-It's a 5 min walk to the beach, shops, and restaurants!

-The owner, Dolly, was extremely helpful

-Full kitchen with pots, pans, utensils, even ziplock bags!

-Water toys, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, coolers, and floats included.


-Towel service isn't part of the hotel since the unit is privately owned, but laundry detergent is provided and is 2 doors down the hall. Not really a con, but some people are lazy. -haha

Overall, our stay was great! I just wish the weather was better. Will definitely consider booking this place for future visits!

We loved our stay at Dolly's condo. Everything was well though off. Dolly was very fast to answer our questions and she puts a lot of effort into details. Very clean, well furnished.

The only thing, and we forgot to tell Dolly (I am sure she would have taken care off it), is that a blanket would have been nice for the pull-over couch. Otherwise, it is an easy place to recommand. You are close to beach, you have a pool for the child, AC, etc.

You wont regret it!!!

Excellent condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The unit was extremely clean and in a great location. In addition to being in the heart of Waikiki, we also enjoyed the option of having some down time at the pool and basketball court. The Banyan Grill on the 6th floor also offers some tasty treats at a reasonable price. Well done!

Great location and cute condo!

  • 4 of 5

We quite enjoyed our stay! The pros include great location to walk to the beach, Waikiki promenade, very clean condo, great view from the condo, close proximity to washer and dryer, responsive owner, and the Parking space!! Cons the A/C was loud and very finicky, pool area not utilized as too overrun with alot of kids, bedding/pillows too hard and not comfortable.

Overall we quite enjoyed our stay!! Loved the fact that we were able to drive Oahu every day with a car and knew we had a parking spot when we returned and not affected much by the traffic. The condo view of the beach was outstanding and loved that!! Would recommend a stay here.
