Waikiki Condo Rental Photos and Description

Diamond Head/ocean View, Remodeled 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Lanai, Free Parking

You want a vacation. You NEED a vacation!

You want a clean home-away-from-home with a great location, enchanting views and lots of amenities. Well, this recently remodeled piece of paradise at Waikiki Beach with ocean and diamond head view is the perfect place for you!

Everything is new: appliances, tile flooring, linens, bedding and furnishings so it is clean, clean, clean! It is a comfy 600 square foot condo that sleeps up to five with 1 bedroom, 1 bath, full kitchen, living room and lanai. The bedroom has 2 queen beds and the living room has a sofa bed.

The condo is in a very popular building with great amenities and is located just a block from one of the most famous beaches in the world. It is also close to the Honolulu zoo, Kapiolani park, Waikiki aquarium, restaurants, live music venues, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, hiking, farmers markets and many more activities.

If you have been to Waikiki before you will really appreciate that this property comes with free parking. And if you don't want to drive, it is right next to bus stops that give you access to the whole island.

If this unit is not available for your desired dates check out our 2 bedroom Penthouse in Waikiki (VRBO Listing # 491230).

VISITING OTHER HAWAIIAN ISLANDS

Many visitors to Hawaii like to visit more than one island during their trip. And for good reason. Each island has its own personality and features.

We have a beautiful custom-built home in Waikoloa Village on Hawaii Island (also known as The Big Island). It is located on the Kona side of the island near the South Kohala resorts. It features awesome beaches where you can get away from the crowds, access to the resorts, and top ranked golf courses. What sets it apart from other islands is viewing the active lava flow at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the observatories on top of Mauna Kea (the tallest mountain in the world when measured from its base under the ocean).

Please see VRBO listing #23146 for more information.

About Steve Marcotte

We have been in the Hawaii vacation rental business since 1993. After selling our former Big Island vacation rental company, A Piece of Paradise, we have relocated to Waikiki. We are licensed real estate agents and like to help folks buy their own Hawaiian piece of paradise.

Steve Marcotte purchased this condo in 2013

Why Steve Marcotte chose Waikiki

We scoured Waikiki for months looking for just the right property and finally found this gem. Fantastic location, great views of Diamond Head and the ocean, awesome amenities, close to an incredible number of restaurants and bars and to top it all off, only a block from Waikiki Beach, the zoo and Kapiolani park!

What makes this condo unique

The Waikiki Banyan has great amenities: large swimming pool, spa, sauna, tennis court, basketball court, nice barbecue area and a playground for the kiddies. There is a snack bar next to the pool and a coffee shop and convenience store by the lobby. And if you've been to Waikiki before you know what a great feature our FREE parking is!

Clean, comfortable and convenient accommodation in Waikiki.

  • 4 of 5
Modern kitchen, roomy lounge area and all appliances that you could wish for included.
Apartment is clean and well maintained.
The building itself, although over 30 stories high, and well occupied, generated very little noise - in fact it was very quiet, however on several occasions we were woken by shouting from late night/early morning revellers from adjacent buildings making a lot of noise.

Owner's Response: Aloha and than you for taking the time to write a review of our piece of paradise. We're glad that you enjoyed our unit so much. That was our goal in completing remodeling from floor to walls to ceiling after we bought it in March of 2013. I'm so sorry that you experienced some rude people in another building. This is the first time we heard of that happening here. It has happened to me when I've traveled to other parts of the world. We want to prevent that happening at our place and is one of the reasons we limit the number of guests and do not allow parties or gatherings there.
Aloha,
Steve

Fabulous condo.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in Steve's condo for 3 wonderful nights before heading to Maui for our daughters wedding. The condo was exactly as described with everything we needed. The location was great within walking distance to the beach, great restaurants and shopping. We did have a slight problem with the door code not working when we first arrived but Steve had the problem fixed within 10 minutes. I loved Oahu and this condo and hopefully can come back soon. Thanks Steve.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your thoughts with other folks that may be considering staying at our piece of paradise. I'm sorry that you experienced the inconvenience with the door lock and I am glad we were able to resolve it quickly.

One of the great things about hosting vacation rentals is hearing how much guests enjoy our unit and the area. We love the Waikiki Banyan. Such a nice building and great location.

We had rentals on The Big Island for 20 years and now enjoying experiencing Waikiki since we moved 2 years ago.

Aloha!

Perfect stay

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 4 stayed in Steve's Waikiki Banyan suite and thoroughly enjoyed the extra space, full new kitchen, and great location. Recommend it to anyone who's looking for more room than a hotel but in a property that still has a large pool, hot tubs, etc. With a great view of Diamond Head, easy beach access, and grocery stores and restaurants all close by, we couldn't ask for anything more. And parking included made it a great deal as well!

Great proximity to the beach

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time in Waikiki and enjoyed staying at this condo. We enjoyed being a block from the beach, waking up and seeing Diamond Head every morning (and being close enough to Diamond Head to walk to and from it...which after seeing the limited amount of parking there, I'm glad we walked cause I certainly would not have wanted to wait in a queue to park!) and being able to walk to shopping and restaurants. The condo was clean and roomy enough for the five of us (5 adults) and all of our luggage. The owner of the condo contacted us early in our stay to check on us and make sure everything was okay upon our arrival...I found this to be a nice personal touch! The one downside (and it is so minor) is that we weren't told ahead of time that the laundry was $4 in quarters ($2 to wash and $2 to dry). The Safeway near by would only exchange $10 for quarters and a bank we went into almost wouldn't exchange $10 for quarters since we weren't customers of the bank. Not sure why quarters are such a hot commodity there but had we known, we would have brought some from home.

Great value and location

  • 5 of 5
My family and I enjoyed our stay here. It's close enough to the action of Waikiki (just a short 5-7 minute walk to the beach) but yet far enough away that you don't get any street noise at night. It's a great value for the money. The condo was exactly as described in the listing, it's very clean and comfortable. Steve is very nice and responsive, and everything ran smoothly during our visit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this condo.

Exceeded expectations .....

  • 5 of 5
...... everything was as described when we booked this condo.

The owner was more than helpful, answered all my questions promptly and was a joy to deal with at all times.
All details were emailed to me before leaving the UK and the check-in procedure (including the parking) went smoothly.
The condo was immaculately clean and tidy, the views were terrific, the location excellent, the furniture and linens were spotlessly clean and good quality.

The lifts were fast and readily available and we had no difficulty finding a space to park in the attached, secure garage area at any time of day or evening. The garage areas were clean as were the public corridors.

If I visit Oahu again in the future I would not hesitate to stay here and would definitely recommend this condo (and the owner) to anyone - be it friends or family.

A top rated experience.

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.
