You want a vacation. You NEED a vacation!!!! Or maybe you have some work in Honolulu (lucky you), visiting family or considering a move to paradise (again, lucky you).

You want a clean home-away-from-home with a great location, enchanting views, many amenities, and NO RESORT/HIDDEN FEES!!! Well, this piece of paradise at Waikiki Beach with ocean and full Diamond Head view is the perfect place for you!

NOTE: THE SWIMMING POOL AND HOT TUBS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FROM APRIL 29TH THROUGH MAY 17 FOR ANNUAL MAINTENANCE. PRICES HAVE BEEN REDUCED FOR THAT TIME PERIOD.

We completely remodeled in 2013 with new kitchen appliances, tile flooring, cabinets with granite counters, and furnishings! It is a comfy 600-square-foot condo that sleeps up to four people. It has one bedroom, one bath, a full kitchen, a living room and a private lanai (balcony). The bedroom has two queen beds, and the living room has a queen-size sofa bed. In September 2022, we refinished the bathtub and shower walls.

For your convenience and security, we will ask you for a code that is easy for you to remember, and we will use it to set the keypad lock to the room.

The full kitchen contains all you will need for your stay: plates, glasses, silverware, a full-size stove, a full-size refrigerator, a microwave, a rice cooker, pots and pans, etc. We also have a Pack 'n Play available for a small child.

We provide a parking pass that gives you one free unassigned parking stall in the onsite parking garage with full in and out privileges.

In case you have to do some work during your visit (or have a LOT of photos to share), we have installed your own private free high-speed internet and WIFI so you do not have to share the network.

This unit is in the very popular Waikiki Banyan condominium with great amenities and is located just a 5-minute walk from one of the most famous beaches in the world! A large recreation deck on the 6th floor has a swimming pool, spa/hot tub, sauna, barbecue grills, tennis court, children's playground and snack bar. Every floor of the building has a trash chute and coin-operated laundry.

Great Property. Had everything we needed!!

This is a fantastic place to stay. Very comfortable, very clean, very nice. A great location, 5min walk to the beach and the shops, 2min walk to the bus stop. A great view. Facilities in the room and building were fantastic and user friendly. The only problem we found were the lifts can be very slow depending on the time of day. There needs to be more shade around the pool area…….but all I can say is pfft easy to work around it. Overall we rated it a five star, a fantastic place that made our stay even better.

This property has all the amenities you need for your stay in Hawaii. Easy walking distance to the beach and downtown Waikiki. Good value for money. Would definitely stay here again.

First time in Hawaii and loved everything about this place! First, the price made this trip possible for us. It’s not a lux apartment but we didn’t have to pay a lux price! It was perfect for our family of 4. The kitchen was very well equipped for making meals at the unit (note, no dishwasher but really not a problem!). The view was amazing and we loved the location … we walked to the beach. Very nice to have chairs, towels, boogie boards provided! The unit was clean when we arrived and nice to have a broom there to keep any sand at bay. Tiny mini mart in building was perfect for quick groceries and not far from Safeway … and Leonardo’s Bakery. Yum! Totally would stay here again!

We loved Steve's condo! He was easy to communicate with and attentive. The unit was very clean, well equipped and handy for strolling to the shops and dining around Waikiki, the beach, and the Zoo is steps away. We would defininitely stay here again next time we visit Honolulu! We were glad to have parking available even though we only rented a car for 2 days. Otherwise we took the bus which was cheap and easy with the bus stop just outside the building - bus 13 takes you straight to Leonard's Bakery and Safeway. Thanks Steve for a wonderful vacation!

Our family had a wonderful time staying at this condo. The location Diamond Head View was perfect and made our stay truly memorable. We were impressed by the excellent condition of the property which has many useful amenities especially beach items like bodyboards, chairs and so on. The owner Steve was responsive, enhancing our stay even further. He gave us detailed information about check-in and room facilities, and we were able to enter the room smoothly. We highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a fantastic getaway. Thank you for providing us with a fantastic vacation experience.

This condo was better than an expensive hotel stay on the island — had great views, was clean, had comfortable beds, well-stocked for our stay, and in a well maintained building with friendly staff. A mini store was convenient on the first floor for any extra items needed. Coffee shop in building for a quick Java or breakfast/lunch wrap came in handy. Steve was welcoming and provided all the information needed upfront to enjoy our week stay. He checked up on us to make all was well. Thank you for making our stay a memorable one and will refer it to anyone traveling to Oahu.

I stayed here for 3 nights with my 2 teenaged granddaughters and their other grandmother. The location is wonderful ... just 2 blocks from Waikiki Beach's south end. Buses to anywhere can be boarded just around the block ($3 per person) The apartment was perfect for our needs, with a lovely view of Diamond Head and peaks of the beach. We did not eat in at all, so did not mind that there no spices, etc. Breakfasts were at the terrific little coffee shop on the first floor. (There is also a small convenience store on the first floor.) Would happily stay here again! Mahalo!

As advertised, good location. Could use a light to right of couch for reading. Several places I’ve stayed have had recliners so I think a recliner should be in every condo. There was not one here, but overall a nice place.

Small but comfortable condo. Urban environment, but very close to beach, bus, trolley, restaurants, and shopping. Free parking. Rental car agency right next door. Steve is a marvelous manager, responsive and helpful. Check in is a breeze. Coded lock… no need to remember keys! W/D on every floor so no waiting. You’ll feel like you live in Waikiki.

Property was awesome! Clean, cool, and spacious. Location was great- just a couple blocks to the beach and near all the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Steve was an attentive host and beach gear was a nice perk. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location, short walk to the beach, food options, and shopping close. I would stay here again. My only dislike was the chairs at the kitchen area, 3 of 4 where close to breaking or had broken parts. Only one did I feel comfortable sitting on and not afraid of falling apart when sitting.

The Condo was one block from Waikiki beach and so many businesses were within walking distance too. Steve was great and checked on us multiple times to see if we needed anything. Highly recommend.

The stay was exactly as described with many amenities (fresh towels, linen, beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella). The A/C was cool/worked well and the wifi was fast. I love the view of Diamond Head from the balcony and my 2 year old son enjoyed the pool and playground. Parking was free and everything was in walking distance (beach is 1 block away).

This property was really great, nice and clean, had everything we needed including high quality beach chairs, boogie boards etc. Easy walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Steve, the owner was very responsive and followed up with us to ensure everything was the way we wanted which was very nice.

Everything was as pictured with our rental. It was nice having the ability to be able to cook simple meals for our extremely picky 8 yr old eater. The pool was a nice area for him to play also. The rental is in a good location, not far from the beach and many shops and restaurants in the area.



October 2022
Exactly as described in the description! Short walk to the beach amazing view off our lanai!! If we ever get back to Oahu we would definitely stay here again. Thanks for some beautiful memories!!

Really enjoyed our stay. Steve is very communicative and answered any questions we had throughout our stay. Nice to have a kitchen to have a break from eating out. View from lanai of diamond head is as advertised.

My family had a great time stay at the unit. Kitchen has all the needs for cooking and utensils. A short walk from Kuhio beach to enjoy. Available parking is a plus. This place also has swimming pool and sauna. The host Steve was very responsive. Our overall experience was very good.

This property was in a great location. Walking distance to the beach and had a wonderful view. The check in process was smooth and the communication with the manager was great. The parking is super tight so small cars work better than the van we were trying to park. The property is dated. Everything needs a little TLC and the furniture needs replacing. Bed wasn’t comfortable, pillows super flat, shower sprays everywhere… etc. It’s a nice property just needs some replacements.

Property was in a good location. Not right on the beach vut very close and walkable to Waikiki and all the beaches and shops. Steve was very attentive to any needs we had. Highly recommend your stay here.

This property was wonderful for our family of 4. There were 2 queens plus a fold-out sofa. Kitchen had everything needed to store our food and to prepare simple meals. Property was clean. Beach was 2 blocks away, restaurants and convenience stores and excitement of Waikiki is right there, Ala Wai canal right there too and lovely to walk/jog along. Parking garage is a bit tight and it's harder to find a space in the evenings but its free and worked out great. Thank you Steve for a great stay!

Our overall stay was throughly enjoyed. Location was convenient for walking to the beach, local eatery and the ABC stores. Being able to quickly go in and out of the building parking lot was nice, and having free parking was a bonus.



May 2022
Its a nice little condo in a good location in Waikiki. Very short walk to everything you need and the condo has basically everything you need. Its a little tight in the bathroom but no real issue.

Steve does an excellent job communicating and responding to our questions. Liked that it was close to Queen's Beach where there is a more local group on people and the beach is not as crowded. The condo had every thing we needed

My family and I had an absolutely amazing stay here in Waikiki! We we’re two short blocks to the beach, restaurants, and shops. The view from the lanai was breathtaking. Steve was great about letting us know all the details ahead of time and checking in during and after our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. We would love to come back again! Thank you!!

This was a really good location if you want to be close to Waikiki (an easy two block walk) but avoid the sprawling resorts. Instructions from the owner were very detailed and spot-on accurate. Free parking on-site is a nice plus. Only drawback is that the unit could use a little attention. The black leather couch had black duct tape covering a large rip, and there were some drywall issues in the bathroom. I can comfortably give the unit an overall positive rating.

Great distance from Beach and shopping. We used the beach chairs and umbrella; we were very happy to have these available to use. The view of Diamond Head from our lanai was spectacular.

Everything was in working order. The furnishings were a bit worn but overall pretty comfortable. I enjoyed this unit as a base from which to work. Thank you to this accessible host.

I stayed with two teammates for a soccer tournament on the MLK long weekend. In addition to being well-priced, the unit was well-equipped: everything we needed including laundry (essential for three soccer players!) It was clean and ticked all the boxes, including great location and amenities (the patio/BBQ area was well-used). Bonus points for a comfortable sofa-bed! Check-in and check-out were well communicated and went seamlessly. Owner was available and attentive at the right times.


Ken D.

We were very pleased with the property. It was clean, well equipped, our grandchildren certainly enjoyed the pools, and the central location to Waikiki is excellent. We appreciated the fact that Steve was available if we needed his help with anything. Thank you for working through the WiFi setup with us Steve. We hope to book through you the next time we to return to Paradise.

We stayed here in a busy time of the year around Christmas so location wise it’s right in the middle of Waikiki - plus free parking which helps - property was good and property manager responsive to address any of our questions

Apartment is just a 5 min walk from the beach, and very close to the shops/resorts in Waikiki. Diamond Head Crater is just a short drive away, and there's a Safeway nearby as well. The location is definitely convenient for all the acitivies we did in our short stay. Big plus that the house came with beach chairs and beach towells! The apartment itself was nice enough. Unfortunately most of the dishes were dirty/poorly washed (food stuck on all the dishes we used). We had some issues with the Wifi -- host tried to help us as best as possible. Ultimately they had us call the ISP and we were able to resolve it with them (the wifi network/passwork provided in the check-in instructions was wrong). Free parking was also a nice plus, though FYI all the spots in the garage are small so if you have a mid to large sized car things will be tight (though they'll still fit).

We had our first half of our stay in Aulani and then second half at this condo in waikiki. It was hard staying in Waikiki after having so much fun at our Resort at Aulani but having relatives that are also staying in Waikiiki but at hotels I realized how fortunate we were because not only do we have a full size refrigerator, there was also a stove, kettle for hot water, and a microwave and free parking. You can't beat that. It's probably because of Covid but the hotels surrounding the condo removed microwaves from the rooms which was very inconvenient for our relatives during their stay. Even when we were staying at Aulani they didn't have a microwave in the room. The bathroom sink was draining slowly and I emailed Steve he called maintence that day and took care of the problem. This is my first VRBO rental. I would definitely rent through Steve again and rent through VRBO.

The condo was perfect for our needs as we had an infant and needed an enclosed room for nap time and early evening sleep time. A pack n’ play was on hand for the baby. Steve the manager was in constant communication with us from the moment we booked the condo. He explained thoroughly all we needed to know before, during and after our stay. We certainly received excellent customer service dealing with Steve.

We had a wonderful week at the Waikiki Banyan condo. We were a family of five who managed with the sleeper sofa which was very comfortable! We really enjoyed the location and did not have any problem walking to all parts of Waikiki. Free parking was awesome as we had a rental car the entire time. I was concerned that the one AC wouldn't cut it, but it did! The best part was our experience was working with the owner Steve. Always available, super helpful, and will take care of your needs. We arrived finding two, somewhat battered and broke boogie boards, and after a call that day, Steve arrived the very next day with two brand new boards. Our boys were thrilled. Thanks again!!


Lisa M.

The check in and check out process was so easy. Steve gave us a great information for a taxi service and other helpful information during our stay. The condo is in a great location, within walking distance to almost everything in Waikiki. The view was incredible of Waikiki and partial view of the ocean.


Angela T.

We stayed almost a full week at this location. The booking process and check in process was seamless. The unit was well maintained, clean and organized. I was a little nervous about how the AC was set up (as I HATE being hot inside of a home/hotel) but it was very effecient and definitely cooled the entire place. The location was very nice with a very short walk to the beach and ABC Stores.

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
