This could be a really nice vacation rental but the neither the owners or the management company have any interest. Upon arriving the place was filthy with stains and dried substances in the tub/shower and dust everywhere. They have turned off the cable and only one TV has Roku, which is worthless since they have the cheapest DSL possible at <5Mbs, which is impossible for streaming. Everything in the apartment is cheap and old. The white refrigerator with rust stains on the side looks like it was picked up off the side of the street. There IS a laundry room on the floor but it only has one washer and one dryer which as inoperable the 5 days I was there. The property manager not only isn't good with the cleaning but it's impossible to get ahold of a local person and the corporate response is only "We'll have a local supervisor contact you.", which they don't. I've had many experiences with home shares and very few disappointments but this place is definitely the worst that I've stayed in.
Hi Mr. Fullmer, we completely understand your frustration with the weak internet signal, preventing you from completing your work during your stay. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by the lack of cable and non-functioning washer/dryer. We will be contacting our local staff to address these items immediately for repair. Your reporting of these concerns is deeply appreciated. Thank you.
The condo was as described. Good location, close to Kapahulu Ave. so easy access w/o having to travel the full length of Waikiki to get in or out. Well outfitted and clean. Nice view even if parts of it are blocked by other buildings- it was great to have a lanai on the 38th floor. Parking was a plus but beware it is tight- a small car is best. For some reason there was an entry card left there- I don't think it belongs to the unit. You get into the condo via an access code on the door. To get from the parking garage to the interior of the building you need a key that is in the condo waiting for you. The door is unlocked during the day but locked at night. So, if you first arrive at night, you'll have to walk down the stairs to get to he lobby and then retrieve the key latter. Laundry room at the end of the hall was great (quiet hours are after 10PM. Here is what could be better. 1) There is a foam mattress rolled up and hidden behind the couch. I can't think that anyone would use it and it just takes up valuable space. Get rid of it. 2) The bar stools at the kitchen island are much too high for the counter height, so its not really a great place to sit and eat. 3) the refrigerator should be replaced. Yes, it works but it's loud and annoying. 4) The TV or signal should be looked at- picture is not high quality. Now that its a known quantity I would re-book this unit if and when I travel to Honolulu again.
Once again the accommodations lived up to our was pretty clean though we had to do some light vacuuming upon arrival. The view was stunning.
It was my boyfriends first time to Hawaii and I wanted us to stay somewhere special. Our penthouse suite was INCREDIBLE! It has everything you need, plus a panoramic view of Diamond Head to downtown Honolulu. Comfortable beds, fresh renovations, dish washer. It has everything to make your stay super relaxed. 10/10 would stay again!
Loved the view and the space from this penthouse suite. The view, the remodel of the kitchen, the fans, the view, the comfy bed, the view, the beautiful floors and fresh linens... did I mention the view?! Booking with the rental agency was easy - and they communicated so well. Other than perhaps providing more than two rolls of TP for a 5 day stay, it was a delightful, spot - and worth the elevator ride every time.
This room has nice view of ocean, very clean and wide kitchen space. Also,there ware a lot of modern lights, so we enjoyed the party with lights of calm lighting at night.
The suite was very well maintained and clean. Best of all was the incredible view of Wakiki. Chelsea is always very friendly and professional as is her staff.
We rented both 3804 and 3802 for a family vacation and found it suited us perfectly. The suite was clean and comfortable. The view was fabulous. However, from past visits we were aware that this suite is getting a bit run down. For example, there was only one deck chair on the lanai, and the shower drain was sluggish. The owner should spend a few hundred dollars on new deck chairs and sprucing up some of the tired items in the suite. That said, we love the Banyan, and we're not looking for luxury.
The views were better than the pics would lead you to believe. I could sit in bed and see the ocean and clouds. Could also hear the ocean, but also sirens and traffic noise at night with windows open. There is no dishwasher in this unit, so the kitchen is a bit less functional than others in this building. If you are mostly eating out, fine; if a family that needs to cook a lot, maybe bring your favorite utensils and spice mixtures from home. 90's decorating in a 70's building. A great location tho and a perfect place to relax. The free parking is a real perk in this area, and it's two blocks from the beach.
Suite was on top floor, ocean facing...outstanding view! Room was clean and well maintained though shower may need a little upgrade in the future.
