Clean, safe, great location, great view, AND great owner!

  • 5 of 5

Dolly was so great to work with! Everything went exactly like she said. It was our first VRBO rental but won't be our last. The view was great!

It was great to have on-location parking. Make sure to compare parking at the various places you are considering as others charge a lot per day that you will need to figure in your comparisons. Good location; even walking at night felt safe. It was exactly like the pictures she shows! We would rent from her again anytime!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay a time this condo at the Waikiki Banyon! The condo is well stocked with everything we needed for our stay, including beach toys and cooking equipment. The beach is just a few blocks walk and area attractions are close by. The pool and hot tub were nice as well, although it seemed like several of the permanent residents were annoyed by having kids in the pool. We had a great stay and Dolly was a pleasure to work with!

Perfect for my family!

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a great location. Easy walk down to the beach, shops, and restaurants. The unit was clean and well taken care of. We had everything we needed, plus some, in order to cook and clean in the kitchen. The owner thought of everything! She included a pack and play for our littlest, just in case we needed it. There were beach toys, chairs, and an umbrella. This made for a more enjoyable beach experience with the kids. Will definitely consider another stay here!

Best VRBO Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay in this condo. The condo was clean and in a great location (facing the beach and pool area). The unit was quiet (although the a/c unit rattled non-stop) and had the perfect amount of space. The kitchen was well stocked and the unit owner even had extras that made the stay so much nicer (i.e. beach chairs, toys, extra toiletries and kitchen supplies). The owner of the unit was so nice to work with and super responsive throughout the process. Would highly recommend this unit. Even my Aunt, who has stayed at the Waikiki Banyan for years, like our unit better than any she has stayed in previously. Thanks again!!!

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.
