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!

Very nice and right in Waikiki

  • 5 of 5

We found the condo clean and well furnished. The view of Diamond Head was great. Just a short walk to the beach. Roomy enough to have good meals created in the kitchen and enjoyed the balcony with its views. We were going to hire a car because the parking was free but found the bus, cabs and shuttles met our need to de-stress and let someone else do the driving. We would definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! In a few words you summed up the reasons why we bought this property: views, location, transportation options. We worked hard to totally remodel it so our guests would have a comfortable, clean, well-located home base to explore paradise or to just relax! Aloha! Steve

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. The condo was very clean and had plenty of room for our family of five. It was nice being so close to the beach just a short walk away. Steve was great to work with. Would defiantly stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you, we appreciate you taking the time to write a review. We don't pressure our guests for reviews after their stay so we love it when someones writes one (ESPECIALLY the 5-star ones!!!). We look forward to your return. Aloha! Steve

Better in real life than the photos

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults stayed in this condo for 7 nights over Christmas. As mentioned, the pictures don't do the place justice. The condo is recently renovated with a lovely kitchen which was equipped with everything you could possibly need. The living area was spacious and bedroom was large enough to fit two queen sized beds comfortably. Also this condo was spotlessly clean which is very important for me when choosing accommodation.

We hired a car and found the free parking a great bonus, there was always ample car parking spaces. The location is great, a quick few minute stroll to the beach and the main strip where you will be in the heart of all the action of Waikiki.

The booking process was straight forward and Steve was a pleasure to deal with leading up to us arriving, as well as checking in on us while we were there. I would highly recommend this condo to others.

Owner's Response: Aloha! Thanks for your review. I guess I am going to have to hire a professional photographer instead of relying on my own ability (or lack thereof)! Cleanliness is VERY important to us and after going through a few housekeepers we are happy with their work. This is a great building in a great location. We really enjoy sharing it with our guests. Aloha! Steve

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!

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.
