About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Aloha E Komo Mai. Welcome to our vacation rental at the Waikiki Banyan.

The Waikiki Banyan is one of Waikiki's most popular resort condominiums for vacation rentals, located one block from the beach in the heart of Waikiki.

Located on the 31st floor in Tower 2, our 1 bedroom corner unit is the perfect home away from home while vacationing in Waikiki and Honolulu. Enjoy the conveniences of a vacation rental by owner plus all the comforts of home in our newly renovated, 700 sq. ft. fully equipped and comfortably furnished suite. Free parking in the parkade, free long distance calls to the US and Canada and free WiFi is included with your rental. Ours is a non-smoking condo, both in the unit and on the lanai.

Our suite has just been completely renovated from top to bottom and decorated in Hawaiian style. It has a separate bedroom with a new Simmons King size bed and windows on three sides to catch the Tradewinds and the stunning views.

The newly renovated kitchen has granite counters, a window looking directly out to Diamond Head and is fully stocked with everything you could need including microwave oven, rice cooker, coffee maker, blender, dishes, cookware, etc.

The spacious living room has a new Queen size sofa bed with a firm, comfortable mattress, a love seat and a chair for plenty of seating. A large lanai with table and chairs offers fabulous views of the mountains, canal and Diamond Head. The lanai gets the morning sun and the afternoon shade.

The bathroom has a separate vanity area with granite countertop. Behind a pocket door is the toilet area and the brand new, glass door walk-in shower, featuring easy to clean solid surface quartz walls and a top of the line Grohe shower system. Taking a shower has never been more pleasurable.

There is a 42” flat screen tv in the living room and a 28' LED tv in the bedroom with full cable programming. The new porcelain tile floors keep the unit cool and easy to clean.

A coin-operated laundry room is just steps away, diagonally across the hall from our front door. There is a laundry room on every floor so machines are always available.

The recreation deck on the 6th floor is perfect for the whole family with a large heated swimming pool, sauna, 2 hot tubs, barbecues, a putting green, children's playground, basketball and tennis courts and poolside snack bar. There is also a convenience store and an internet cafe in the lobby area.

While the Banyan is a child-friendly complex, our suite is located on the opposite side of the recreation facilities (in Tower 2 or Mauka, facing the mountains), providing a peaceful retreat for those who are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

We just purchased our condo in 2012 and lovingly renovated it with comfort and relaxation in mind. This is our home away from home and we look forward to welcoming you with aloha. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Mahalo Nui Loa.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We live in Vancouver, BC, Canada and have been vacationing in Hawaii for years. We fell in love with the Waikiki Banyan and all it has to offer. We love the separate bedroom, gorgeous views and full kitchen. We knew we wanted to be on the quiet, cool side of the building, with views of the mountains, canal and Diamond Head. After much searching for the right unit, we bought our condo in January, 2012. We lovingly renovated it from top to bottom. We look forward to welcoming you to our home and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. (Our local contact while on island: Steve Larson, Koko Resorts, 808-922-0707)

Why the Owner Chose Waikiki, Honolulu, HI, USA:
The Waikiki Banyan is one short block from world famous Waikiki Beach. We are a short walk to Kapiolani Park and the Honolulu Zoo. There are many shops and boutiques just a short stroll away and there is a bus stop right outside our door, with buses covering the entire island. Great cafes and world class restaurants are all within walking distance. We think it is the best location in all of Hawaii and the amenities are great.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Please contact us to inquire about renting this beautiful oasis in Waikiki. To help us in welcoming you into our home, please tell us a bit about yourselves - number of adults (young couple? mature, older couple? on your honeymoon?); any children (remember, our condo is not child-proofed for safety and is therefore not suitable for toddlers or young children) and anything else that will help us to make your stay with us as wonderful as possible. We look forward to welcoming you with Aloha.
