Loved our stay ... so relaxing...nice sturdy modern seating for us and any visitors...my wife has a walker and it was easy for her to move about...pool is really nice with steps and handrail .. very clean unit and updated. Thanks for allowing us to stay at your condo. We used the mini market and lovely cafe on lobby floor several times. VRBO is the way to go! The bus line runs right past on Kuhio both ways and our parking pass was a real lifesaver many times due to no other parking in area. Only 1 1/2 blocks to the best beach! yeah.

Great value!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 young daughters really enjoyed our stay here. The condo unit has all the amenities for a family of four - including a fully furnished kitchen. And the DVDs helped keep the girls entertained!

The pool and play area was great for the kids too.

The beach is only a few minutes walk and the unit has beach chairs, parasol and toys for the kids.

We would definitely stay here again.

Great View!!

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I just spent 11 days in Sonja's condo, and we had a great time.

The condo was nicely updated, and we used the beach chairs, and towels every day. It is only a 8 min walk to our favourite beach area which is towards the aquarium. I will have to remember our snorkling gear for next time.

The view is fantastic, and the pool area would be very nice for young children, as it also has a large play area by the pool. We would definitely stay again.

The 3 'C's' : Cozy, Convenient, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The Banyon is a charming older building, and this little unit is exactly as shown in pictures. We found it to be clean, the linens were ample, and the amenities in the apartment generous . . . down to an iron and ironing board which I was thrilled to have as we had formal attire to freshen up! Appreciated the kitchen island for entertaining and mealtimes. Previous guests mentioned beds too soft (subjective of course) but at the end of long, very busy days, we fell into them and slept fine! (Did not end up using the fold-out couch so can't speak to it's comfort.) The pool deck is perfect for family groups, lots of room to barbecue, and for children to play. Sonja and her sister Corrie are a great team. All instructions are clear, Sonja is prompt in all her dealings and very professional, and it's nice to know that Corrie is available in person if a need arises. Parking is secure. Little store and coffee shop downstairs are a plus. The beach, restaurants, and shops are steps away. Even Diamond Head is a short bike ride away! The only 'not as stated' feature was the inability to be called by other rooms (would have been handy as we were there for a wedding). We were told room to room calling was possible for 'Hotel' guest stays and ours was a private stay, hence the 'blocked' recording? Not sure, but we made do, and if that was the least of our problems, we're still very satisfied. Wouldn't hesitate to deal with Sonja again. Aloha and Mahalo! P.S. Best kept secret: Warm Custard Malasadas . . . Leonard's Bakery on Kapahula . . . . DON'T miss them!

Owner's Response: It was our absolute pleasure to have had you and your family as our guests. It was such a delight and we absolutely loved your sharing the wedding information with us. Thank you so much for leaving such a thorough and thoughtful review. I am sorry to hear that Aston does not allow telephone calling to their managed units, unless you're calling from one of the units they manage. I thought each condo had their own individual telephone numbers. Oh,well....I am glad to hear you were able to work around their situation and that it was not too much of an inconvenience. Please do come back soon! Aloha to you all. And, p.s..........You're so right! Leonard's is simply --- the best!

Great Condo, much better than staying in a hotel

  • 4 of 5

This condo was great, had all the amenities needed and more. The kitchen was well stock, it had more than expected. We loved that we even have boogey boards and Tommy Bahama beach chairs. We rented a car and went about exploring the island, so the parking was very useful and also the blue book about Oahu was very helpful, We found some amazing hidden beaches. The lanai was beautiful thanks to the view. We had issue with the phone line but owner was kind to offer us a mobile while line was fix. The only reason I give it a 4 stars is because we thought the mattresses could be updated, too soft for our liking. The location is great, short walk to Waikiki beach and all the shops. We did not use the pool areas since we prefer the waves of the beaches. The property is very clean and maintain. We chose this condo because this was the most diligent and expedient person when dealing with questions and payment, super fast and efficient!��

Owner's Response: What a nice surprise to read your review! Please know it was our pleasure to show you the Aloha Spirit of Hawaii, and it's so nice to know it was appreciated. Thank you, also, for letting me know about the mattress. The beds are fairly new --- purchased less than 3 years ago and are rated "firm", so I won't be getting this brand/model again. Mahalo to you both, the "Tourists from England."

Amazing Memories at an Excellent Family Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great family vacation condo. We have a family of four including two young children. We took advantage of the games, boogie boards, beach toys and beach chairs. We made use of the kitchen when we wanted or went out to the multitude of amazing restaurants nearby. Pharmacies and grocery stores are close and we took advantage of the free parking spot. Nice to have everything you need close at hand. Sonja was a pleasure to deal with. My wife and I can't wait to return.
