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.

NOTE ABOUT REVIEWS FOR OUR WAIKIKI BANYAN CONDO

The reason there are so few traveler reviews for this property is because when we started renting it in June we were using a property manager that booked most of the summer reservations. He had his own web pages for the property so any reviews would have been on those pages. We are now doing our own booking and will be receiving reviews on this VRBO page starting in September 2013.

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

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!

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!

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.

This condo was clean, convenient and comfortable. The upgrades to the unit made it a great place to stay. It was perfect for a family of 4 with 2 young kids. Steve, the owner, was easy to keep contact with and very prompt in responding to any inquiries. Will definitely stay here during future visits.

Owner checked with us to make sure everything was good. We could walk to everything and everywhere we wanted to go. Would certainly go back to this condo.

Great Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this condo for a week to visit my son who is a Marine stationed on Oahu. Our oldest son traveled along with us to make this a family vacation. When researching a place to stay, I came upon this unit that looked great but did not have many reviews. I e-mailed the owner and he called me immediately. He explained that the company he hired to manage the unit did not work out and previous reviews were not available. He explained that the unit was completely remodeled. All communication after that was done by e-mail. When we arrived, the place was better than pictured. Using a key code lock to get in was great, we never had to worry who had the key. The unit was like new and very clean. We liked the kitchen island to sit around to eat and play cards. I liked the fact that it had pocket doors that would close off the sleeping area from the living area and that the sink and mirror were separate from the toilet and shower. This made it very easy for the four of us to shower and get ready to go out all at the same time with some privacy. It is an end unit and very quiet. The view from the lanai is Diamond Head with a partial view of the ocean. It is a one block walk to the beach. Coming and going in the parking garage was easy. We walked downtown many times to eat dinner. Our favorite restaurant was theYard House. Great food and drinks with not as long of a wait as the ever popular Cheesecake Factory. Lots of shopping close by. I can't speak of where to grocery shop because we were able to get groceries pretty cheap on base. We are a family that likes to go on our own instead of booking tours. We hiked Diamond Head, Maunawili Falls, Makapu'u Lighthouse, Koko Head Trail, and Hanauma Bay. We went early to Pearl Harbor for free tickets to the USS Arizona. We also spent some time on the beach and at the pool. The pool area is very nice and has two hot tubs. Our week at the Waikiki Banyan was great. We had no problems with the condo and would definitely stay there again.

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.
