“Home away from home”
Great condo in a great location. The amenities of this apartment were exactly what we wanted and is as promoted. Very comfortable king size bed and living area with all the appliances and more that you would need for a holiday. My wife and I would have no hesitation in re-booking and will probably do so the next time we go to Hawaii. Communications with the owner and local assistant were excellent - very easy and prompt. We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment. thankyou GayAnn, Bob and Yvonne.
“Another Fabulous Stay!”
Once again we had the privilege of staying at GayAnn and Bob's condo during our recent visit to Honolulu to celebrate our anniversary. The first thing that always greets us when we walk in the door is the gift basket that GayAnn leaves for each and every one of their guests. Not only is it such a lovely gesture on their part, but you can also tell that a great deal of thought and care was put into preparing the baskets. It is truly a lovely way to be greeted when you first walk in the door, and a wonderful way for them to welcome us to their home. Each and every detail of this condo is well thought out and you can tell that they put a lot of effort into making their condo, and your stay, the best that it can be - from the lovely décor, the amazing bed and practically anything else you can think of to enjoy your stay in paradise - they have thought of it all. We absolutely love this condo and the owners, and this was our third stay in the last four years. Quite frankly it would have been our fourth stay if someone else hadn't beaten us to renting it last year. (Insert smiley face here). You know this condo has to be special if people are vying to rent it, and trust me when I say that this place is wonderful. Another great year staying here, and yes, we hope to be back here again next year.
“Best in the Banyan”
this is the second time we have stayed here. We feel like we r in our second home as soon as we enter. We love the super comfortable King size bed, the full kitchen, the beautiful morning sun on the lanai with a breath taking view of Diamond Head. We love how everything is stocked and it's fun to c what other travellers have left and what surprises we can leave. The location is great and walking distance to everything. Bob and Gayann are wonderful to deal with we totally trust them with the finance end and every detail is attended to. They have at a phone call away a manager to attend to needs no matter how small including light Bulbs!!!! Thankyou for the lovely gift basket and homemade card! Staying in yr condo makes our vacation so special memorable n relaxing. We hope to be there again next year!!!!
“Wonderful condo in Waikiki”
From beginning to end, our experience here was awesome. Booking through TripAdvisor, the owners were so friendly and responsive. The communication prior to our trip was great as we were a little nervous booking a rental for the first time. It was so easy to find and the free parking was great! It was such a relaxing experience, and it was wonderful home base as we explored the island. We had done a Costco run upon our arrival in Honolulu in order to stock our kitchen with coffee, snacks, bottled water, and other things to make meals. The kitchen was FULLY stocked with any amenity you could think of. It was a pleasant view from the lanai, we had our coffee out there every morning. Check out process was very easy and our security deposit was refunded so promptly. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to any single or couple looking for a place while in Hawaii. Thank you Bob and GayAnn!!! :)
“DO NOT HESITATE TO BOOK! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!”
My husband and I found this condo online while we were searching for a place to stay in Waikiki. Most of the hotels that were within our budget were already booked, so we decided to look at condos when I came across this one. I immediately contacted Bob and Gayann, who had a very quick response time and were also very kind and professional. Before we arrived in Waikiki Gayann gave us specific instructions to help us get to the condo and park. It was very easy to find and her instructions were very clear and helpful. Once we saw the condo in person, it was absolutely beautiful and had a wonderful location. The condo was clean and welcoming and we almost felt like we were "living" in Hawaii! We cooked some dinners in and also got meats and bread from Safeway so we could make sandwiches and take picnics to the beach. There were tons of utensils and condiments provided as well as pots and pans for cooking dinners. The condo also had a pool and barbecues on the 6th floor. We didn't use either of these two things very often but we did use them once or twice so its nice that they were there. We also really appreciated the beach chairs and snorkelling gear that were provided, which we made use of every time we went to the beach! The condo also has a really nice little patio with chairs and a table where you can sit outside in the mornings and just take in your surroundings and the beautiful weather. Man is it hot out there though! The location is perfect. Located within a 5 minute walk to the main strip of Waikiki beach, where there are hundreds of restaurants, malls, and shopping centres. To say this condo is in a great location is an understatement!! We did rent a car because we wanted to drive to other areas of the island, but there are bus services that run right in front of the Waikiki Banyan. We found that it was cheaper for us to drive most places because the buses cost $5 per person for a return ticket. We drove to Diamond Head and Pearl Harbor in the mornings and had no problems with the parking garage or traffic outside of the condo. I will say to be careful in the parking garage because it is very tight and has very small corners to maneuver so if you are renting a car and staying here for a week or so, then try to get a medium or small sized car if possible. One thing I would like to note is that this condo is such a great value for its location and amenities. In Hawaii, most hotels or resorts charge a resort fee as well as a parking fee, which could easily add $60 a day or more onto the cost to rent a room. At this condo, you don't pay a resort fee or a parking fee, which makes it a really good value. We had one small issue with the condo (which was not the fault of the owners or the condo itself) and when I notified Gayann about it, she quickly resolved the matter in only a few hours. When we got home we had received a really nice handmade card from Bob and Gayann. Overall a great experience! If we return to Waikiki one day, we will stay here again!
We decided to stay at a condo for our honeymoon rather than a hotel, mostly because we didn't want to eat out for every meal and didn't need room service. We shopped around and read tons of reviews. When we found this one, it really seemed like a "no-brainer"...and we couldn't have been more right! It was so easy, after smooth booking online, not having to "check in" when we got there and instead going right upstairs and having a code to enter (no key to carry was awesome.) The condo was very clean and up to date. We had a lovely welcome basket with instructions and phone numbers. When they say it's fully stocked, they mean it!! Everything we needed to cook, clean, relax, play, it was all available. They provided beach towels, snorkeling equipment, even flip flops and hats if needed. The kitchen had every appliance imaginable and some unopened food supplies from previous guests (such as a box of pasta, spices, condiments, etc.) Everything was in working order, from the appliances to the A/C to the TVs. The wireless internet was very handy, although we could not figure out how to use the wireless printer (which wasn't a problem because the coffee shop downstairs near the lobby offers internet and printing for a small fee.) The bed was very comfortable and king size, and the rest of the apartment furnishings were comfortable as well. The lanai had nice furniture and was my favorite reading spot. They even had a selection of books, "take one/leave one," I left my Stephen King and grabbed a Nora Ephron. ;) There is one coin-op washer/dryer at the end of the hall, $2 for each for one load, bring your own quarters. Laundry basket was provided. It was nice ending the trip with no dirty clothes!! There is a store downstairs next to the elevators that carries lots of supplies (including laundry detergent, sunscreen, collapsible coolers, etc) and some food items, as well as beer/wine/liquor, and stays open until 11pm which is a plus. The pool and spas on floor 6 were meticulously clean when we arrived. They are strict about the 9pm closing time. We did have to endure construction noise during the week because they were tearing apart the putting green, but they never started until after 9am. Not sure what they plan to build there. There is an advertised snack bar but it was shut down for the duration of our stay, not sure if it's closed permanently. The aforementioned coffee shop on the ground level is a little pricey but very good quality and a nice selection of food & drink (open 5am-7pm). We did not use the BBQ section of the recreation area but it seemed pretty popular and clean. The unit did offer BBQ supplies as well. We did not have a rental car, but that was fine because most of the time we walked, were shuttled, or took a taxi (which are always available right in front of the building.) The beach was indeed a block away which was so convenient. Lots of stores and some restaurants within walking distance, and the zoo was a short walk away. GayAnn and Bob were very professional, prompt with their responses, helpful, and made the whole experience just wonderful. Our security deposit was refunded very quickly. The whole transaction was quite smooth and kept us virtually worry-free. We had a great honeymoon. If we ever were able to come back to Hawaii we would absolutely want to rent this condo a second time. I may in fact try to convince him to do it again sometime. :) Mahalo!!
Our expectations were met in every way. Unit was exactly as described. Spotlessly clean, great location. Bob & GayAnn were fantastic providing all information needed and very helpful. Would recommend to anybody. Would definitely stay here again.
“Perfect location. Perfect condo. Perfect visit.”
Having lived on Oahu before, I knew exactly where I wanted to stay and this condo fit the bill perfectly! On the edge of Waikiki, it's within walking distance of everything - beaches (I suggest Kaimana Beach or Sans Souci), restaurants (Tiki's, Moose's), supermarkets (Safeway and Foodland are a short drive away), and Kapiolani Park, which is a beautiful park to walk in and around at any time of day. If you feel like going into the heart of Waikiki, it's a short walk and you're in the middle of everything. Personally, I like driving out to Manoa Falls and Valley of the Temples, so I was thrilled to have a parking permit for the condo garage!! Parking isn't cheap in Waikiki, so this is a huge bonus. There is a large recreation deck, complete with pool and hot tub. Both of those were closed for maintenance during my stay, but that wasn't a big deal to me because I wanted to jump in the ocean every chance I got. :) The bed was very comfortable and I greatly appreciated the extra touches that GayAnn and Bob have added. They made me feel incredibly welcome. Communication was always easy and prompt... as was the entire process. If you're coming to Honolulu and looking for a great condo in a completely walkable location, you must check out this condo! Aloha and Mahalo, GayAnn and Bob!
“A must to stay here.”
This is a great place to stay.We recently stayed here for a week apr,2014 and we were so very pleased.As soon as I started to explore this condo on line,The owners were very helpful answering any questions we had and also gave us lots of info on the area as well. Upon arriving,as soon as we walked in the condo was very clean and the aroma in the unit was very spring like. The owner also had a welcome basket which was very considerate.She also emailed us the next day to see if everything went ok checking in.I really liked not having to worry about carrying around a key,as it was a passcode lock. The location was excellent,a great view of diamond head ,and that is a must to walk up diamond head,but do it early morning before it gets too hot,takes about 45 min. to walk up,but well worth it!!Also we were only one block from the beach,and lawnchairs or beachmats were available to use in the condo .We really enjoyed the lanai as well ,with a bit of waterview. The condo was very well equipped ,there was not a thing missed .the owners seemed to be very organized with this rental,even had a list of everything that was in the unit. I would highly recommend this condo to stay,and applaud them for their excellent cleaner . The only negative thing we would say,and which is not the owners fault,is the pool and hottub close at 9pm,the gates are padlocked.We .sometimes like to go in hottub later in the evening.There is also a lot of barbecues to use at a small cost. So don,t hesitate about renting this condo.!!!
“Everything and More than one would expect”
What a fantastic condo to stay in. Gayann is so accommodating. Always very prompt with her responses when you have any questions. So pleasant. Wish I could have met her in person. The condo is very clean and decorated with a lot of love. The keyless entry was a plus, not having to worry about keys. The condo is well equipped with many amenities, such as shampoo, soaps, lotions, cleaning products, paper towels, Kleenex, toilet paper, laundry detergent, kitchen spices, etc. it was great that we didn't have to go out to buy them when we got there, like we did many other times when we stayed in other condos. The bus system is fantastic & easy to get around on. Gayann is so thoughtful, she even had a "Welcome Goodie Basket" on the island when we arrived, with a couple of muffins, some delicious home made Chex mix and other goodies. We would definitely recommend this condo & will use it again, should we come back. Oh, I forgot to mention, the king size bed was one of the most comfortable beds we have slept on.
