About Chisato Kanazawa
We live in Tokyo and have been spending our vacations in Hawaii for the last decade. Because we love Hawaii so much, we decided to buy a condo in 2012. The condo was operating as one of the hotel rooms till we completed full renovations in June 2014. We are now renting it out on our own and would like to offer the best place to stay in Waikiki for ourselves and for everyone. We hope that you have an unforgettable, wonderful experience with us and enjoy the best vacation ever.
Chisato Kanazawa purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Chisato Kanazawa chose Waikiki
We've spent our vacations in many places in Waikiki and have come to conclusion that the Banyan is the best place for its location, people, the amenities, the unit structure, and friendly atmosphere. The Waikiki Banyan is perfect place for family, couple, friends, on special occasions or to simply relax and chill out. We are proud and grateful to own a condo in such fabulous building.
What makes this Condo unique
There is a recreational deck on the 6th floor where you can enjoy pools, jacuzzi, sauna, golf putter, basketball, BBQ, etc. Also, East Waikiki has shorter access to the beach compared to the West Waikiki and it takes only few minutes to the world famous Waikiki Beach. Short walks to the zoo and Kapiolani Park, as well as the shops and restaurants in the heart of Waikiki.

Great location, exactly as described. Basketball and flippers from the office on level 5 were a great bonus. Would stay again for sure. Super easy access with the door access code made coming and going easy for everyone in the family. Fold down couch worked well as extra bed. Sunset and a whale in the bay all from the balcony. it has aged a little since reno, but still very good.
Great like the reviews say
We stayed here on two separate occasions in a week on the island (we were on the North Shore for a few days in-between) and all of the good reviews are accurate. We didn't have to contact Chisato during the stay as the instructions were very clear and detailed, but communication beforehand was great. The property was clean, well-maintained and updated like the photos indicate. The views from the property were great, the location is a 2 block walk to Waikiki beach and within walking distance of some of our favorite places to eat, like Musubi Cafe Iyasume and Marukame Udon. We had a great time in Waikiki and would stay again in our future travel!
We have stayed in this building two years in a row now. The location is great for access to the beach and walking to stores. Unit was clean and sleeps 5 comfortably. A bit of confusion on exchange of towels for clean ones but other then that we found this unit pleasant. Great view also of the city.
Great location and unit
This is an excellent unit within walking distance from Waikiki Beach and the main shopping and dining strip. It is fairly easy to jump on to the highway as well. The building complex is a bit older but is well maintained and clean. Linens, detergent and basic cookware are provided with the rental. Beds are comfortable and the unit is clean and well-maintained.
This property was not as advertised!
This property was advertised as Newley remodeled but when I arrived it was not as the pictures showed! The couch is old and the imitation leather is pealing and some of the pillows are old and dirty. The bathroom floor grout is black and dirty. The microwave in the kitchen can't even be opened its so close and tight against the wall.
In my renters info it states that I can check out chairs, boogie boards etc from koko resorts on the 5th floor but when I went to do that they said they haven't done that for quite a while now. I had to then rent 2 chairs and an umbrella for 25 dollars for 2 hours. I feel there should at least be a few chairs and other minors things in the unit for guests to use. There also was a nail on the wall in the living room where a picture once hung but the picture is gone. I don't want you to think I took it so I am letting you know it's gone just in case you don't know about this.
I think the unit needs some care to get it back to what is advertised.
I contacted you to ask when I could expect my security deposit back and you said 1 week but I have since found out it is 2 weeks.
I don't know when you have visited your unit last but I think you should know things that need to be done.
Please feel free to call me if you want! I left the unit clean and sure hope nobody said I didn't as things in the unit are not as they are supposed to be.
You have always responded quickly and thank you for that. I hope this can help you out for future renting.
Thank you very much for your review.
Please note that we are in the course of replacing the couch and the cushions that have worn off over the last 2 years.
Also, we are currently working with the management office to make the bathroom floor look cleaner. Because our bathroom floors have a porous natural finish and it is easy for dirt and sand to seep in, the floors tend to look dirty despite the fact that the floor is completely cleaned every time our guests check out. We are considering to have a contractor do a seal treatment on the tile floor so that it would coat it and repel the water and dirt.
Please note that we are also getting beach amenities for the unit so that it can be used for our guests. Thank you very much for your suggestion.
As for the picture, it is currently stored in the management office as it got lose and was about to fall off. Our management office is getting necessary equipment so that the picture can be mounted on the wall more securely. This should be done very soon.
Thank you very much for your candid comments and suggestions. We truly appreciate it as we'd like to ensure that our unit is tidy and clean at all times. We'd like to continuously making improvements so that our guests can fully enjoy their stay.
Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Great host/great stay!
The condo is a great location and well equipped. If you want to explore the island via rental car, having a parking space is very useful! The owner is VERY responsive and super receptive to any and all questions. Highly recommend--all around excellent stay!
