The description of the accommodation was accurate and everything was fairly user friendly.
A small issue with the toilet was attended to promptly. Mike was helpful with suggestions about activities and the neighbourhood.
We had a great rest away from our winter.
The location of the apartment was ideal. We were somewhat familiar with Honolulu but this accommodation was exactly what we needed, preferable to a couple of hotel rooms. Having a full kitchen was great.
The apartment was a great place to rest after a long day of activities. It was close to the beach and shopping which was an added bonus for us. Parking was easy and having the kitchen was great. Instructions for how to get into the place was also very thorough and helpful. Thanks for giving us a great first time experience with Airbnb.
The Waikiki Banyan was very enjoyable for my family and I. The location of the condo was supreme and within walking distance to everything. The "Las Vegas Strip" of Beach and Mall is literally a 5 min to 15 min walk. It's only a 25 min drive from the Airport, which in many cases I recommend taking a very early flight or have pre-arranged transportation services due to the overwhelming long lines for car rentals. Just a reminder, this is a privately owned condo and all the items needed to stay in a home is dependent on you. Washing and Drying is $2 per load. In a nutshell I would definitely recommend this condo to family and friends. Thanks Mike!
For a family of 4 and it being our first time in hawaii, this place was ideal. It came with boogie boards for the kids to swim with, the kitchen came equipped to meet your cooking needs & the place was just as described. A few blocks away from the beach it was an ideal location. The view was amazing & the parking spot helped as we hired a car. Thanks mike for a wonderful stay :)
Mike was great - we had a lot of communication prior to our arrival, which was useful given our unfamiliarity with condo living in Waikiki. All the information was thorough, detailed, and accurate. The condo was just as described, and it was really nicely appointed with A/C and fans. The kitchen was well stocked and we really appreciated the water filtration system set up in the fridge.
Mike was responsive to several inquiries we had during our stay, and always helpful. He connected us with a babysitter so we were able to have a little date time, too!
Mahalo for an great stay and comfortable home.
glad we could be of great service to you in providing a place of comfort and rest. Yes the night lights are really neat, almost looks like lava coming down from the hills. Also glad Coleigh could support you in your childcare needs for a few nights out on the town.
We loved staying at Mike & Nicki's mountain retreat. The hosts provided clear instructions for everything so our stay and checking out was a breeze. This is like a home away from home as my daughter calls it. The kitchen, the comfy big bed and the views are spectacular! You are 2 blocks from Waikiki beach so the location is convenient. We had so many questions prior to arrival and Mike answered all our questions pretty quickly. Wanted to know whether or not to rent a car, we ended up renting anyway but there are buses everywhere! Loved every minute at the mountain retreat, super clean and the staff downstairs are super helpful as well. Definitely recommend!!!
What a wonderful spot to stay on our Hawaiian vacation! This condo has a gorgeous view of the mountains on Oahu but is located conveniently in Waikiki and just a couple minute stroll from the beach. We specifically wanted a place with a kitchen and we certainly weren't disappointed. We had all the cookware we needed as well as both a stove top and oven. The condo was clean and stayed cool throughout the day with a lovely breeze coming in from the balcony. The place looked to be recently updated, the bed was super comfy and our stay made for quite an enjoyable and relaxing week.
