The space

Aloha E Komo Mai. Welcome to our vacation rental at the Waikiki Banyan.

The Waikiki Banyan is one of Waikiki's most popular resort condominiums for vacation rentals, located one block from the beach in the heart of Waikiki.

Located on the 31st floor in Tower 2, our 1 bedroom corner unit is the perfect home away from home while vacationing in Waikiki and Honolulu. Enjoy the conveniences of a vacation rental by owner plus all the comforts of home in our newly renovated, 700 sq. ft. fully equipped and comfortably furnished suite. Free parking in the parkade, free long distance calls to the US and Canada and free WiFi is included with your rental. Ours is a non-smoking condo, both in the unit and on the lanai.

Our suite has just been completely renovated from top to bottom and decorated in Hawaiian style. It has a separate bedroom with a new Simmons King size bed and windows on three sides to catch the Tradewinds and the stunning views.

The newly renovated kitchen has granite counters, a window looking directly out to Diamond Head and is fully stocked with everything you could need including microwave oven, rice cooker, coffee maker, blender, dishes, cookware, etc.

The spacious living room has a new Queen size sofa bed with a firm, comfortable mattress, a love seat and a chair for plenty of seating. A large lanai with table and chairs offers fabulous views of the mountains, canal and Diamond Head. The lanai gets the morning sun and the afternoon shade.

The bathroom has a separate vanity area with granite countertop. Behind a pocket door is the toilet area and the brand new, glass door walk-in shower, featuring easy to clean solid surface quartz walls and a top of the line Grohe shower system. Taking a shower has never been more pleasurable.

There is a 42” flat screen tv in the living room and a 28' LED tv in the bedroom with full cable programming. The new porcelain tile floors keep the unit cool and easy to clean.

A coin-operated laundry room is just steps away, diagonally across the hall from our front door. There is a laundry room on every floor so machines are always available.

The recreation deck on the 6th floor is perfect for the whole family with a large heated swimming pool, sauna, 2 hot tubs, barbecues, a putting green, children's playground, basketball and tennis courts and poolside snack bar. There is also a convenience store and an internet cafe in the lobby area.

While the Banyan is a child-friendly complex, our suite is located on the opposite side of the recreation facilities (in Tower 2 or Mauka, facing the mountains), providing a peaceful retreat for those who are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

We just purchased our condo in 2012 and lovingly renovated it with comfort and relaxation in mind. This is our home away from home and we look forward to welcoming you with aloha. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Mahalo Nui Loa.

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay in this condo. First off the view from the place is amazing. You get the mountains, beautiful sunrise every morning, and diamond head. The condo itself was very roomy and comfortable. Had pretty much all the amenities you would need. The host even has couple beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, farmers market bags and more that can be borrowed during the stay. We were so thankful to have this stuff! The host was very kind and easy to contact. Checking in and out was easy, and there's plenty of information made available about the place and how to go about around the island. Beach is a very short walk away. I highly recommend this place and I would most definitely stay here again; I'm already looking forward to it!!!

Cathy was a great host! There were little helpful notes everywhere to help you along your stay. Love the free parking, because parking fees along Waikiki Beach will cost you an arm and a leg. Short walk from the beach and The Bus stops if you're planning on using public transportation. Oh, and the view overlooking the mountain homes, Diamond head, and the golf course could not be beat! 5 stars!

Catherine's place is exactly as pictured. A beautiful view from the balcony and an easy walk to the beach. Well-equipped kitchen. Comfortable bed. Great use of space & clean. Free parking is an added bonus! We really enjoyed our stay.

We spent five days in Waikiki at this magical place. The views were stunning at both night and day, it was immaculately clean and had gorgeous Hawaiin decor. The location was fantastic with transportation just a few metres from the place and a couple of blocks from the beach and shops. Thank you Cathy for your hospitality, you went out of your way to help us with an alternative check-in time and had heaps of helpful tips for our trip. Mahalo!

I’ve just come back from a fantastic stay in Cathy’s condo in Waikiki. Where do I start? The condo was perfect! Spotlessly clean, equipped with pretty much everything you could possibly need or want and the most comfortable bed you could imagine. It is a corner unit so it is very spacious and you can open the windows on both sides so the nice Hawaiian breeze just flows through. It is beautifully decorated in Hawaiian style, and so comfortable that I really felt at home. And the view is amazing! Cathy the owner is such a pleasure to deal with and she truly cared that I enjoy my stay and have everything I needed. I really felt like a valued guest. I recommend Cathy and her condo highly and I am already planning a return visit soon.

This was our first AirBNB experience, and what a wonderful experience it was. Clean, bright and well stocked condo located just a block away from the Waikiki beach. Free garage parking is really convenient. Lovely view from the lanai oversees the Ala Wai golf course and mountain, and view of Diamond head from the bedroom. Catherine extremely lovely to deal with, very organized and responsive to our inquiries. We can tell she put of a lot of love and care into her place, and it clearly shows. We would love to stay at her place again in the future, and recommend others as well.

I live in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada with my husband and our Golden Retriever, who you see here. While I was born in Canada, I've lived in many places, including Italy, where my husband is from, and also lived and worked on a passenger cruise ship for 5 years, which is where we met.

We bought our condo at the Waikiki Banyan on the island of Oahu, HI in 2012 with the plan to retire there. In the meantime, we love sharing our home with other visitors to Hawaii and hope you will allow us to welcome you to paradise and help you experience all that Hawaii has to offer.
