Perfect Waikiki Location

Our family enjoyed our stay at the Waikiki Banyan. The condo had a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of towels (bath/beach), comfortable bed, and a complimentary parking spot! They also let us use their cooler and beach chairs, which we greatly appreciate. There was also a swimming pool and hot tubs with a snack shack for sandwiches and beverages. The check in process was easy and James responded quickly when I had questions. Waikiki beach was a quick block away so this is a great location! Thank you very much James and Kimi!!

Wonderful condo!

We had such a wonderful stay in this condo, it has all the comforts from home and more. Great central location, to restaurants, the beach, shopping and more. It is perfectly located if you want to use transit to get around, which we did as it's the easiest and cheapest way to get around Honolulu. James was easy to communicate with and responded promptly, we have stayed at the Banyan many times and James' condo was the best yet! Great value, for a home away from home!

Great Location

The condo made our brief trip to Waikiki a success. It was walking distance to beach, restaurants, attractions, etc., and had everything we needed. The place fit 3 adults comfortably --the mattress in the foldout couch was rough to sleep on, but the air mattress and couch worked fine. James was extremely responsive and accommodating to our travel schedule.

Our families and friends recently had a reunion over the Halloween week staying in several different condos in Waikiki. We all agreed that this was the best one overall. The location, facilities and free parking are very convenient. We had a good time at the pool, the children had fun at the play area, the adults enjoyed the barbeque facilities and the beach and shopping are a short walk away. The unit is clean, comfortable and, equipped with everything you need for entertainment. We really enjoyed the quiet evening views from the deck. The instructions from James were easy to follow and he is quick to respond to e-mails. We highly recommend this condo and hope to return soon ourselves.

Absolutely wonderful!

This was a great vacation stay! It was perfectly accommodated with everything you need while visiting Hawaii. Being so close to Waikiki beach and a bus stop was very appreciated to fully experience and enjoy our time in paradise. We will most definitely be back!

Great Stay

Very convenient to everything, beach, food, shopping. Located towards to the Diamond Head side, so you avoid much of the Waikiki traffic. James is very responsive to your questions and needs. The unit is clean and comfortable, everything you need is in the unit. The included parking spot is a big plus, especially in Waikiki. We had a family of 5 with 3 young adult children and we were all comfortable in the unit. We have been to Honolulu several times. Would definitely come back. TW from California

Great location, perfect for a family

The set up was great for travelling with an infant and the place was very close to the beach. An air mattress was provided, which came in handy, as well as wifi, parking pass and air conditioning. The only issue we had was promptly addressed, which was greatly appreciated. (The knob of one of the bathroom doors came loose and revealed the screw below, which was problematic since it was at the height of my niece's head. But it only took a quick call to the building manager and the screw was removed that same day.) Thanks, James for a great stay!

Loved it!

I stayed at James condo from 7/4/16 to 7/11/16. It was the first time staying at someone's condo and I really loved it. The condo is nicely decorated, cozy, clean and it has everything to make you feel at home. It has plenty of clean towels as well as beach towels. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you James!

Very pleased with our decision to stay at this condo!

ALOHA, Our family of 5 stayed at this condo from June 28th to July 03rd, 2016 and it was very nice! Our home away from home!! We were very comfortable, we had everything we needed and more, not to mention, the condo was immaculate... There was an air mattress available for us to use, a lot of clean towels/bedding, pool/beach toy's, nice seating area on the deck with an amazing view, the bed in the bedroom was very comfortable, as well as, the pull out couch AND the air conditioner worked like a charm. I loved the hanger's in the bedroom closet because they had hook's on them to hang pant's/skirt's and they had a luggage stand for extra storage. There, also was a plug-in "scentsy" warmer in the kitchen, which I thought was great. Another nice touch was the journal in the condo for everybody to sign and share their Hawaiian experience! It was neat to read through... The Waikiki Banyan is a nice facility and the world famous Waikiki Beach is literally a 5 minute walk right out the front door!! Our first time to Hawaii as a family, there were 9 of us total and hopefully one day we will be back! This, also, was our first time using VRBO to book a condo and James made it very, very easy-no problem's whatsoever! Mahalo James for letting us share your condo and for making us feel welcome...

A very warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Upon our arrival, it was easy to find the elevator and access the room. The only confusing part of the property was where the garage entrance was located. Great location to the beach and shops. Plenty of "vacation amenities" needed to enjoy fun in the sun. Great communication and access to resources if needed. Overall process was seamless and very user friendly. Would definitely recommend and use again!

Great location in a great condo

Stayed here in early April for 4 nights. Just a short block to walk and you are at Waikiki Beach. The unit is in very good condition and the bathroom is fairly large for a small condo. Grocery store is fairly close. The kitchen had all the necessary cooking equipment. We were able to pack lunches, make dinner and breakfast in the condo to save money. There were beach towels, and other items to take to the beach handy. Loved the free parking included! There was plenty of room for the 4 of us; 2 in the bedroom and 2 on the pull-out couch. Not an ocean view, but the view of the mountains was spectacular. Did not hear any street noise at night. Air conditioner worked good, but we didn't' have it on all the time as we preferred to have the trade winds come through the sliding glass door to cool us. We didn't use the pool at the hotel as we prefer the beach. Seemed to be a safe part of the city. Security deposit refund was prompt. We usually visit Hawaii every couple of years and hope to be able to rent James' place again if it is available.

We would recommend it to our friends and family

The condo was good, as advertised. It is nice, clean, convenient location and close to the beach. I spoke with James on the phone and via email and he was helpful and accommodating. We had a great time in Oahu and our place was definitely worth the money. We would recommend James to our friends and family. Mahalo

First Time VRBO Users!

Discovered the condo very clean upon arrival! Well supplied with essentials for dining-in with grill ammenities; Close to the beach, local church, farmer's market & walking distance to several attractions. Easy access to major freeways on the island. Any situation that came up, owner & local housekeeper provided immediate attention. Parking for one vehicle was very appreciated. Thanks for the recommendation of an evening with enjoyable food & music listening to owner's family perform @Outrigger Reef. Definately would rent from Jim/owner again! Enjoyable stay!

Exceeded Expectations

Have rented several other units in the Waikiki Banyan over the years. James' unit is by far the best. The pictures did not do it justice. The unit was beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. Loved the view of the mountains. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. The included parking was wonderful and really saves a lot of money. James, thanks for providing the beach towels, cooler, boogie board and umbrella. We added a chair to the collection. We will definitely be returning to Hawaii and plan to stay here again.

A very nice condo with mountain and city view

This property is located two blocks away from Waikiki beach. It has a nice city and mountain view from the balcony. It is very clean and comes with free parking. The owner stocks up all beach gears for us to use while we were there, which is very nice. My family stayed there for a week and we loved it. We will definitely book this property again for our next Oahu vacation.

Really Enjoyable Stay

The first thing we noticed when arriving is that the condo was very well maintained and clean, which is always a concern when you have a 1-year-old traveling with you. The separte room was exactly what we were hoping for, and there was plenty of storage and closet space for our 8-day stay. Every appliance worked perfectly for us, and there are plenty of kitchen utensils, place settings, cookware, etc. to accomodate all of our meals (cook your own meals for most days if you really want to save some cash). The Banyan is literally two blocks off of the beach, which was great for us having to lug a stroller with us, and within walking distance of many shopping and eating establishments. Getting in and out of the parking garage was very easy as well. I think that the best part of this condo was James, the owner. He was super quick and responsive, very nice, and easygoing. If anything ever came up, I could text him and he'd respond quickly. He even attempted to purchase a crib to keep in the condo knowing we needed one, but couldn't find one that would work well for storing...no big deal, as we had planned on renting one anyhow. Okay, enough rambling--I would definitely stay here again and recommend James' condo to anyone I knew who wanted to stay in the Waikiki Beach area. Thanks for making our stay so comfortable, James. The only issues I can recall are concerning the faucet in the bathroom...the hot handle just keeps spinning when you shut it off (but works fine), and the cold handle is super hard to turn. But those are simple fixes and easy to deal with while there.

Excellent Stay

My husband and our teen sons rented James' condo at the Waikiki Banyon for 10 days. The condo was immaculately clean, which is always my primary concern. I was pleased with the condition of the condominium in this regard. The Waikiki Banyon is a mix of residential, condominium rental, and hotel rooms. There is a coffee shop and a small store with an ATM in the lobby. There is also a pool area, as noted in the photos, a sauna, and a barbecue area for pay ($2, I think). There are washers/dryers on each floor, also $2. There is a reception desk, as in hotels, in the lobby, and the staff was very helpful. The condominium has newer furniture, in very good condition, and an awesome kitchen, better stocked than many homes, including mine, LOL, in terms of pot sizes. All the pots were T-fal, and new. Wifi was excellent, which was important for teens, as one can imagine. We did not feel cramped at all, even on days when our sons did not make up the sofa bed. The photos are very accurate representations of the property. Like other posters, we had a car, and parking was provided, which was very convenient. The parking lot is enclosed and safe. For those who do not have cars, the bus, including the trolley, passes right in front of the building. There are stores, as well as numerous restaurants within walking distance of the condominium. There is a farmer's market 2 blocks away on Saturdays, though we drove to Safeway, which is about 2 miles away. The condo is less than 2 blocks from the beach, and within walking distance of everything along Waikiki Beach. Beach towels and boogie boards were also provided, which was appreciated. I recommend this property for anyone looking for a clean and safe place to stay on vacation. This property helped make our vacation memorable, and if we return to Honolulu in the future, I would definitely rent this property again, and will recommend it to anyone I know who plans to visit Honolulu.

Perfect for a relaxing vacation

We had a very relaxing vacation here. The condo is stylishly decorated with all the comforts of home - exactly as the pictures show and describe. Everyone was very responsive from arranging the reservation to while we were there. We also had a car during our stay so the parking stall was very handy and easily accessible. Perfect location, nice building with great amenities, friendly staff. We have fond memories of having our morning coffe on the lanai - hope we can do it again soon! Thank you so much for sharing you home with us.

Great rental!

I grew up in Hawaii and returned for a family vacation. This rental property is in a great location just a few blocks from busy Kalakaua and close enough to walk to everything - shops, restaurants, beach, zoo, etc., but away from the noise and traffic. The full amenities made you feel right at home and if you needed anything, the local contact was very accommodating to your requests. Great stay for a family of four.

Wonderful Waikiki

We loved our time in our VRBO rental at the Waikiki Banyan. The condo had everything we needed and more! The view from the lanai was beautiful and the cross breezes were lovely after a fun day at the beach. The location of the Banyan is great, close walk to most everything, yet tucked away from the noise of the city. Thank you for making our time in Waikiki so enjoyable!!!!

This little condo is exactly what it says it is. Its centrally located, has free parking, nice little kitchen to eat in and a pool. it was in good condition and clean and the owner was easy to work with. You are getting what you pay for here, its worth they money. If you are looking for a 4 star hotel, this isnt it but you aren't paying 4 star money either. I would definitely go back. THere is laundy on the same floor too which was a plus. Its steps away from Waikiki beach and all the stores/restaurants.

This is definitely the nicest and most comfortable of the condo's we've stayed in in Waikiki. We stay at the Waikiki Banyon once or twice per year for two weeks at a time. The condo is very clean, very comfortable and very quite. Everything you will need in the kitchen and lots of towels and pillows. Jim is very accommodating. I'm booking for next year shortly.

May 2014

This unit was absolutely fabulous! The kitchen was fully stocked, we had nice thick bath towels & beach towels (we really didn't need to bring ours). The storage had a great assortment of things for the beach (ice chests, blow up tubes and mats, boogie boards, beach chairs..). The location of this unit is ideal, it's walking distance to the beach, zoo, Kapiolani Park (where there are often events being held) and the main strip where all the shops are. Loved the free parking, always a must for us because we stay for over a week and we are constantly in and out exploring the island and visiting family and friends!

Great place, great owner

This review is very late, we booked this unit for my son and fiancé for 2 1/2 weeks in April 2014. Working with James was fabulous, he responded very quickly to all our needs. The condo itself was as pictured and had all the amenities you could want. My son is a chef so he cooked a few incredible meals there for us. The building is central to everything. No need for a car. We would definitely book this condo again with James. Mahalo.

Perfect for family with EVERYTHING close by.

Dad and 2 late teens, close enough to everything. We had a great time. Accomodations perfect for us for a family. Clean, tidy, safe, easy access , VERY accomodating hotel staff, never done a room rental this way and now I will definitely go right back to James. Left a tiny mini-SD card in room(my fault) and got back to Canada made a call and I got it back; honest staff.
