Overview

Photos and Description of this Waikiki holiday condo

Located just one block from world famous Waikiki Beach, the Waikiki Banyan is a perfect spot for your vacation, be it energetic or relaxing. The complex is made up of over 800 privately owned condos. It can be lively, bustling with holidaymakers going to the beach, playing on the tennis court, which doubles as a basketball court), swimming in the large freshwasher pool, soaking in one of the two Jacuzzis or the sauna, or watching the children having fun playing in the playground. Enjoy quiet evenings on your private lanai sipping a cocktail – or prepare your evening meal on one of the coin operated gas barbeques and dine el fresco.

Darmic Waikiki Banyan unserviced condos are one bedroom, one bathroom with a fully equipped kitchen and lanai (balcony). Each sleeps up to 4 people with a variety of bedding in the bedroom (depends on category) plus a queen size sofa bed in the living room. A 5th person can be accommodated at an extra charge. The condos come with a fully stocked kitchen including flatware, crockery, utensils, pots, pans. Our apartments are unserviced during your stay so you are not interrupted by housemaids. Ample supplies of additional bed and bath linin is provided and there are coin operated laundry rooms on each floor. Smoking and pets are not permitted in Darmic condos

All onsite facilities including the recreation deck, mini mart and café are available for your use – NO RESORT FEES! Darmic guests are able to have unlimited parking on site for a flat fee of only $10. A Security Deposit of $110 is required to obtain a parking pass then US$100 is refunded on return of the pass to our staff. A lost permit will cost $100 to replace, hence the need for a security deposit.

A short 5 minute walk takes you to the warm sands and blue waters of Waikiki Beach. Swimming is safe for children in a lagoon style area at the end of Ohua Ave, then further down the beach are fun waves to play, body surf and boogie board in. Take a short stroll along Kalakaua Ave and see the surfers further out catching the waves. Shops, bars and restaurants are within a few minutes walk of the property, with budgets and styles to suit everyone. Explore the stalls in Dukes Lane, marvel at the high end stores on Kalakaua or simply stroll around Kapiolani Park. For the more energetic, climb Diamond Head for amazing views of Waikiki and surrounds, or venture further afield on a guided tour around the island.

Darmic staff are on site to welcome you and upon whom you can call for assistance and knowledge of Waikiki and Hawaii. We pride ourselves on our friendly service to all our guests, as we want you to have a great stay in Hawaii and come back to us for your next vacation.

About Jamie Carter

Darmic is a family company and the only New Zealand owned company operating out of the Waikiki Banyan.

Dariel and Michael first began Darmic in 1990. In July 2014 their two daughters Jamie and Robyn began their ownership of Darmic, so the business has gone full circle within the family.

Our family own a condo in the Waikiki Banyan and we are excited to be part of your own vacation plans.

Jamie Carter purchased this condo in 2014

Why Jamie Carter chose Oahu

The Waikiki Banyan is a great place for families who love spending time enjoying the outdoors. The condos are just like a home away from home for your holiday or vacation and we enjoy greeting so many of our regular guests each year.

What makes this condo unique

Darmic has on-site managers who are available to help you with whatever queries you may have while on vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Jamie,

Just a note of thanks to say how much we appreciated all the timely arrangements made by you (DARMIC) for our recent one-week visit, the warm reception (and send-off) we received from Mike and Dariel, the lovely, super-clean unit (3109, T1, with the great view of Diamond Head, the park, and ocean), and the pleasant balmy breezes and scenic venues in Hawaii! It was great to back at the Banyan and in Honolulu. Many thanks for accommodating our late-check-out request as well. That made a huge difference on our last day/evening before our red-eye flight home. All the best to you and the company. We look forward to returning again in the future!

Best,

Patsy & Lawrie

Such a great place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I was very hesitant at first to give my money to someone without being able to use a credit card, and all the security features they offer. However, I quickly learned that they can take credit cards over the phone. we did that for the deposit, and paid cash on arrival for the balance. I would recommend that the Darmic family find a way to accept credit cards easier, since it makes people feel more comfotable - a PayPal, a Square, something. But still, the condo was AMAZING!!! There is a Safeway about a mile away, and we walked to Waikiki Beach every day. We were also within walking distance of the zoo. This condo has amazing views of the ocean & Diamond Head. My kids were excited about the body boards and beach equipment they left us to use, and we will definitely stay here again should we come back to Oahu. Jamie was amazing to work with, answered all my questions quickly and put me at ease, and Colin was a delight to meet at check-in. Thank you Darmic, my 2 boys (8 & 9), my niece (21), and I had an amazing time in Honolulu thanks to you :)

Owner's Response: Aloha, thank you so much for your lovely review. You will be pleased to know that while I was in Hawaii last month I implemented a credit card system for payments on arrival, which opens up a more secure method of payment for our clientele. I had hoped to meet you at our guest BBQ - I had travelled to Hawaii for a week with my mom Dariel (the DAR of Darmic) and it was going to be a nice way of meeting everyone. Oh well - next time hopefully! Take care and thank you again. Jamie

Darmic at the Waikiki Banyon Condos Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo, lovely & clean all amenities needed, great swimming pool & BBQ area only short walk to beach & very central for getting to where ever you want in Waikiki. This would be approximately the 10th time we have stayed at the Waikiki Banyan & have to say the service from Darmic (especially Jamie) was fantastic as we have found before. Nothing was a problem & just so helpful with all our requirements. For a lovely relaxing holiday with plenty of sunshine swimming & shopping I would recommend this place & Darmic for their great service anytime.

Darmic at the Waikiki Banyon Condos Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was lovely & clean & everything we needed . Waikiki Banyan is central to everything you want to do & just a short walk to the beach. We have now stayed there approximately 10 times & still enjoy every minute of our stay. I would especially like to thank Darmic for all their help with arranging our bookings especially Jamie for the wonderful friendly service & being so helpful in organising everything we needed. Would recommend place & service anytime. Robyn Brown.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My family of husband, adult son and myself, have just returned from a wonderful week staying at the Waikiki Banyan in an apartment/condo which we rented through Jamie at Darmic. Our apartment which was on the 25th floor had everything that was needed for a delightful stay. We had a double bed and a double Murphy bed which pulled down from a cupboard in the wall in the lounge room, just perfect for our adult son. The two rooms are separated by a bifold door to give privacy. And although our apartment was directly opposite the bank of lifts it was amazingly quiet, we heard neither lift nor neighbour.

The location of the hotel is ideal – The Bus stops right out the front of the hotel which takes you everywhere on the island, you are one block away from Waikiki Beach, and the views of the ocean from this particular room are superb.

The Managers meet you in the foyer and Maureen showed us around the apartment. She is very friendly and helpful.

The kitchen was very well equipped and the added amenities like dishwashing detergent, bath soap, hand washing liquid, extra toilet rolls, the welcome pack of tea coffee milk and sugar were very much appreciated so that the first thing you don’t have to do is rush down to the supermarket. The towels – plenty of them – were thick and plush, even the two beach towels which were also supplied. There is a wall air conditioner and two ceiling fans in the apartment which were switched on and running on our arrival, and the complimentary fast wifi was very much appreciated.

There is a very nice pool area with hot tubs and BBQs which we could see from our apartment but didn’t use, which seemed to be very popular with families with young children.

There is a washing machine and dryer on each floor which charge $2 per load, or a clothes airer in the apartment to dry off your swimmers etc.

These apartments are privately owned and the one we had could have done with a bathroom upgrade, but other than that we had no complaints. This is our fourth time of staying at the Waikiki Banyan through Darmic and we will definitely be back again.

Room Tip: Tower No 1 has partial ocean views, Tower No 2, although behind the first tower, has full ocean view...
