Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very neat 1-bed apt close to the beach and everything. Parking is easy in the garage. The location is very convenient. And the apt is clean and includes everything you will need. We spent one week here and we were very satisfied.

Great Condo Value - Lovely View

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of this unit - enjoyed the view of water and very easy walk to beach. Enjoyed sitting on the Lanai in the morning, absorbing the view and drinking our coffee. Also liked the quieter end of Waikiki, super easy to get to freeway access, Safeway, Leonards Baker & Kono's for Kahlua Pork. Unit is next door to laundry room so was very easy to keep up with beach wear when we got in after our activities (yet we never heard any noise). Free parking is a great benefit (just head straight up to 4th floor to always get a good spot, spaces are tight and we were glad to have a Toyota Corolla.) Beds were very comfortable, granddaughter slept on the pullout couch & was ok. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals, with good set of pots and pans & utensils. The Tommy Bahama beach umbrella and chairs were wonderful to have, plus small beach cooler with blue ice. The unit was very clean and we had enough linen/towels for the three of us. Dolly provided easy instructions and info. Excellent value and we would love to stay again . . .

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

The place clean, comfortable, and located within walking distance to beach. The beach chairs and umbrella was excellent to have too. This was a home away from home. Thank you for such a great trip.

A very understated, amazing, totally complete gem

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a condo for my group of 3, each of whom slept in a separate bed. That eliminated 75% the units in Waikiki right off the bat. It was impossible to find a unit with 3 beds and free parking, but this unit has two full beds, a Queen pullout bed and free covered, 24-hour attended parking.

I wanted a unit with a complete kitchen, not just a microwave, because I like to cook. I'm also a clean freak who lives in a very quiet neighborhood, so I wanted a clean, well-maintained, quiet unit. Dolly's condo seemed to fit the bill, so I went back and forth with her, asking many questions. Dolly wrote back in a timely, thoughtful manner and I loved that fact that her responses addressed every question and concern I had very candidly in a way that expressed her sincere desire to represent her condo accurately and to accommodate our requests.

When we arrived, every little detail was spelled out for us in Emails from Dolly, as well as in a book that she left for us on the entry table. Her condo was immaculate and so complete that I was stunned. I expected to have to buy consumables, but she even included suntan lotions, many types of kitchen bags, foil, wrap, soaps, everything I could have asked for. There was also a delicious box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts waiting for us.

We stayed for two weeks, so we had to do laundry and clean. Dolly's condo included two vacuum cleaners, cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, bleach, and laundry instructions (the laundry room is nearby and is available at most times).

When it came time for the beach, I was again shocked because Dolly had provided 4 beach chairs (2 of which are Tommy Bahama backpack chairs), an umbrella, 2 boogie boards, fins and masks for snorkeling, and 3 beach towels. There were two First Aid kits, extra blankets, a scale (allowing us to fill our luggage to exactly 50# so we could take gifts home for friends), everything and anything you would have in a complete home.

The view was great. The entire building is well maintained and runs like a well oiled machine. The 6th floor has an exercise room (which we never used because we go to a serious gym, so I can't comment on that), as well as a gigantic pool with huge decks, 2 hot tubs and many gas BBQ grills. The pool is large and outdoors and never crowded. They drain the hot tubs and clean the BBQ grills daily, and there is always ample room for a group to sit outside.

DOLLY AND HER CONDO ARE SIMPLY AMAZING!

Great unit, Great Service

  • 5 of 5

Our family comes to Hawaii every year and this was the third time we rented a unit at the Waikiki Banyan and it was the best unit so far.

The amenities were very useful including the wifi, beach chairs, parasol and snorkeling gear.

The beds and furniture were comfortable.

The views are awesome.

The hard floors made it easy for cleaning the sand when coming back from the beach.

The laundry room is right next door which was convenient since we have small kids and were doing wash every day.

The electronic door lock was great - never have to worry about losing a key.

And Dolly was very kind - she knew what time our flight was coming in and send us a text when we arrived to ask if we wanted to check in early since the unit was open - as we were coming in from an international flight with two small kids that was a huge help.

Also, I had lost my credit card during my travel and Dolly was very helpful in providing the support to get my new card delivered to the management office so we could enjoy the rest of our vacation with no stress.

We enjoy the Waikiki Banyan as is offers great public amenities including the tennis court, kids play area, pool/hottubs and bbq grills. All with only a block away from the beach.

For those traveling with children, I highly recommend the Waikiki Banyan as all the units are 1BD with full kitchen which is a great help to manage your meals - you dont have to go out for every meal, make reservations, wait in lines etc. There are several ABC convenience stores within a couple minutes walk to get your staples like bread, juice and milk and there is also a large grocery store about 10 minutes walk from the building.

We hope to be able to stay at Dolly's unit again next time we come to Hawaii.
