About Steve Marcotte

We have owned and managed Hawaii Vacation Rentals since 1993 and helped many thousands of guests to enjoy their stay in paradise. We are a boutique rentals and sales company that focus our attention on a small number of properties.

Steve is a real estate broker and has been licensed in Hawaii since 1999. Iku is a licensed real estate agent and a native Japanese speaker. We have traveled extensively and this gives us an understanding of what our guests need to make their stay enjoyable and safe. And being owners of rentals gives us the experience to help others buy and sell rentals and second homes.

We founded a vacation rental company named A Piece of Paradise on Hawaii Island (aka The Big Island) in 1996 and managed wonderful vacation homes in a special area named Kapoho. In 2011 we sold A Piece of Paradise and began relocating to Honolulu. A multi-year search for properties followed, and our hard work paid off!

In addition to managing our own properties we also love to help others buy their own piece of paradise in Hawaii. Even if you cannot live in Hawaii full time, It is a wonderful feeling to know that you have property is here and you can come whenever you want. And when you are not staying at your property the rent can help pay the bills.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I just got back from staying in this condo. Steve was extremely helpful and answered our calls and questions quickly. The only negative that I can think of is that they were doing some kind of construction in the hotel and we were woken up very early (6am) on a couple of mornings. Other than that the experience was excellent.

Perfect Location in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. Love the Waikiki Banyan because of its location, easy walk to beach everyday, as well as near Kapiolani Park and zoo. So convenient to have the parking and free WiFi too. The condo is immaculate and updated nicely. Steve supplied the place with plenty of clean towels, linens and sundries. We would definitely return here on future Waikiki trips!

  • 3 of 5

you need new sheets that fit the beds and the towels need to be replaced or bleached and most of all you new a new couch it is very uncomfortable and some one needs to empty the sweeper we left the condo very clean so any money charged for damage control should be refunded for the most part we enjoyed the condo hope this is helpful since you do not live in it these are things you would not know hope it helps future people who do stay there

Owner's Response: Aloha! I am so sorry that you did not let me know about these issues when I met you at the condo. I always encourage guests to let me know if there are any problems so I can resolve them right away. I have passed your comments on to our professional linen supply company to ensure that they only provide high quality linens for our guests. This is the first complaint we have had about the couch and I will check it out as soon as we have a vacancy. I encourage anyone reading this review to please let the owner/manager of your rental know of any issues as soon as they happen rather than posting them in a review after you leave. Give them a chance to fix it while you are there.

Mahalo! Great stay.....

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at the Banyan. Love the proximity to everything. Our suite was exactly as Steve advertised and even more well equipped with 'little touches' that made it that much more comfortable and convenient. We appreciated the boogie boards, chairs, cooler bags, blender, rice cooker, lots of serving dishes, baskets for laundry..... We came with 7 other families, and ours was definitely one of the best equipped rooms. The full kitchen and proximity to grocery stores meant a significant saving, as eating out in Waikiki can get costly.

The view of sunrise over Diamond Head and ocean without getting out of bed, or with a coffee on the lanai was a great way to start every morning.

Everything was clean and went exactly as advertised. We had no need to connect with anyone on arrival - simply entered the agreed door code and we were in. Free parking and wifi are definite added bonuses!

World Famous Waikiki Beach!
Car: not necessary

Wow, there are so many things to see and do on this island! Of course number one on the list is Waikiki Beach which is only 250 meters away. Safe swimming for kids, surfing lessons and board rentals and people-watching. The Honolulu zoo and Kapiolani Park are only a couple of minutes walk. Pearl Harbor is an important historical site and is the main reason some people come to Hawaii.
