We had a great holiday - your condo was terrific - the views fantastic - enjoyed sitting on lanai with a glass in hand admiring the perfect location. It was great having a free parking pass
as we hired a car. All the best,
Maureen & Charlie, Sydney Australia
This is our second visit to your condo and we look forward to the third. Thanks for everything, towels thick and plenty for bathroom & beach. I also had fun with the noodle.
Mahalo, Best wishes
Great location, great condo! Very well equipped. We had a great time at the beach and pool. We are coming back! Mahalo!
J. family, Watchuag, New Jersey
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that we really enjoyed our 10 days in your condo on the 35th floor at the Waikiki Banyan. It was clean, very well equipped and in an excellent location. We spent many mornings and evenings out on the spacious lanai having our breakfast or dinner. The views are beautiful! The condo had absolutely everything we needed, including beach chairs and towels. It's a short walk to the beach, shopping, bus and the zoo. We had a wonderful time and would definitely rent your condo again!
Mahalo nui loa!

'We stayed so many times in different apartments at the Banyan, but this unit is by far the nicest and cleanest.'
Just a quick note to let you know that we had a wonderful time. Everything was great. We got to do a lot of different things, and it was really helpful to have a place to come and relax and see the beautiful view. It was also especially helpful to have a parking spot for our rental.

Just a quick note to let you know we had a fabulous stay at your apartment at the Banyan. It had great views and location convenient to everything especially the beach. So thank you.
Leon R. (Australia)
My wife and I had a wonderful 30 day stay in your Waikiki Banyan condo.The views were magnificent both day and night, and the location could not have been better.
We had no need for a car,with so many eateries,shopping,
the beach, and a beautiful park within easy walking distance. The bus stop at the corner took care of our travel needs.
We have visited five of the Hawaiian Islands and we enjoyed this location the most by far.
Betty & Al, Retired couple (Florida)
We had a very pleasant stay at your 29th floor condo. Nice view of the ocean and mountain. It is comfortable and close to everything plus a free parking space! We have been going to Hawaii almost every year since 1982 staying at different hotels and condos and we find your unit at the Banyan has the best value around. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Oahu.
Jason & Mary (San Francisco area)
I really enjoyed my stay at unit 2912 tower 1 at the Banyan. It was very nicely decorated, clean and updated. The view was very nice. I shall for sure go back to this unit. Thank you.
My sister and I had a great stay at your condo.
We really loved the location and the view.
We would certainly recommend it to our friends should they visit Hawaii and we will certainly stay again when we visit.

Michael Job, Broker-Salesperson, Faith Naluai LLC, Manager of Ownership purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Michael Job, Broker-Salesperson, Faith Naluai LLC, Manager of Ownership chose Waikiki
We bought this property because we looked at nearly thirty apartment complexes in Waikiki and picked the Waikiki Banyan because of its great location two blocks from Kapiolani Park at the foot of Diamond Head, one block to the best beaches in the world & great snorkeling in a nearby corral reef teaming with sea life (a fish preserve). Banyan is a "fun" lively building with great resort amenities including a pool, two jacuzzis, a tennis court. I chose this particular unit because of its incredible high floor unparalleled views, almost like a work of art.
What makes this Condo unique
The Waikiki Banyan has a large multistory parking structure connected to its two towers (37 & 38 stories). Parking goes for a premium in Waikiki & most guests have to pay extra for it. We offer free parking, free wifi internet, and a condo just upgraded with a new kitchen, new porcelain tile throughout, attractive decor, new cabinets, bathroom mirror, overhead light etc... The views of this condo cannot be duplicated.

Comfortable and very clean property,however there needs to be a few updates.Dinning chairs not very safe to sit in (wobbly backs).Pillows need to all be renewed,stained and smelly and mattress cover on bed by window stained,needs to be changed.The day we left the pipe under the sink started leaking,my husband tightened it so stopped leaking and had to use dirty towels to soak up water,no time to call maintenance before we left but did leave a note for Michael.Prime location to everything.We stayed at this Hotel over 30 years ago,although very old property,has been kept up well from what we could see.
Hi, thanks for feedback. We will immediately address all the issues you raised. We ordered two weeks ago new blankets, comforters, top sheets, bed skirts, pillows for all our units for a completely new, modern look. In the meantime we have asked our cleaners & maintenance firm, Koko Resorts, to replace pillows, clean the mattress cover by window (which is practically new ... was replaced March 1st), & examine chairs. The connection under the kitchen sink below the garbage disposal was tightened and I'm very glad you let us know. Don't want water leaks in a high rise. Much appreciated. Aloha,
Amazing view, well located
Mr. Job was very informative and helpful! Our arrival went smoothly, parking in the farage was easy. The apartment was spacious, beds comfortable. A/C unit was too loud to leave on at night...but other than that, this place has all the conveniences. A bit run down overall but everything was tidy. Very convenient to have washer and dryer access down the hall too! I would definitely stay here again!!
Great Diamond Head view, convenient Waikiki location, easy parking, good value.
Nice 1BR 1 BA condo unit on 35th floor with a fantastic view of Kapiolani Park, Diamond Head, and the ocean. Unit is clean, has an adequate kitchen and smallish bathroom but with a good shower. AC unit is a plus when it gets a bit warm but the unobstructed high floor allows for plenty of cool breeze. Pullout sofa has a really nice mattress. Parking in Waikiki is difficult and expensive so having a parking spot right in the building is a huge plus! The location is great, being on the Kapiolani Park side of Waikiki it's easy to get to from Kapahulu (instead of driving through Waikiki on Kalakaua Ave). 1 city block to the beach, easy access to walk the shops in Waikiki, plenty of restaurants nearby, grocery store, and food trucks. Some traffic noise from below but to be expected in a high-rise in a dense urban area and easily drowned out by the AC unit. Elevators were generally available with minimal wait and you meet lots of interesting people on the ride up. Wi-fi connection was consistent and strong. Plenty of clean linens. Plenty of space for 4. Overall, this is a very good value for Waikiki and a great alternative to a hotel room.
Really good location and view of diamond head and ocean
Great, convenient location and view!
Property was as advertised and quite comfortable for my wife and I. We did fine walking and taking rideshares from this location - lots of things closely and a bit less hectic than the center of Waikiki. Kitchen tools were basic but adequate for small meal preps. We had a maintenance issue with kitchen drain, but the property manager handled it in the best possible way, so we appreciated his efforts and compensation for our inconvenience. We would definitely consider renting this unit again.
We have stayed in several of Michaels condos and all have been wonderful. Our recent 2 week stay un 3511 Tower 1 was fabulous. The view of the mountains, Diamond Head and the ocean from the lanai and unit were truly breath taking. The unit was clean, everything you would need was provided. Michael called when we checked in to make sure all was ok. Would definitely stay here again
You are one block to the beach. The Waikiki Banyan has an Activity Desk where you can book all types of tours including snorkeling tours, cruise dining, Polynesian luaus,helicopter tours. I enjoy walking to Kapiolani Park two blocks away to the foot of Diamond Head or along the ocean boardwalk to the lighthouse at foot of Diamond Head. Daily snorkeling in the fish preserve across the street from the Honolulu Zoo two blocks away. See tropical fish, puffer fish, colorful eels, octopus, small barracuda, ono, tuna etc...
