About Darmic Waikiki Banyan

On-site managers available 8am to 6pm (808) 923 0370

Darmic is a family company and the only New Zealand owned company operating out of the Waikiki Banyan. In the late 1980's Dariel and Michael (the DAR and MIC of Darmic), had the opportunity to take their Hawaii experience a step further – and Darmic at the Waikiki Banyan was born.

Between 1990 and 2001 Dariel and Michael put their heart and soul into the business and the family again spent many wonderful weeks in Hawaii. In 2001 Jamie began working full time for them. As grandchildren started to come along, Dariel and Michael felt it was time to step down and in 2007 the business was sold. In 2014, a set of circumstances enabled Jamie and Robyn to once again take the reins and bring Darmic back to the family.

Being a family company, we are proud of what Dariel and Michael did to turn a small fledgling outfit into an internationally know vacation rental and property management company with many repeat guests each year.

Dariel and Mike instilled a very strong work ethic in all their girls and we are proud to continue the Darmic name on while our parents watch in the wings.

Now as we start our fourth year back in the family, we are excited to be evolving and offering even more to our guests.

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!

Beautiful apartment located in the perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this apartment, especially that it was renovated so nicely.

The location was wonderful and the apartment was very well equipped with everything we needed including all the extras that a lot of other apartments don’t have. Dennis and his wife were lovely and they answered all our questions whenever we called them.

Thanks again for the wonderful accommodation, we will definitely be back again and will be booking this apartment again for our next family holiday to Hawaii.

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.

The Waikiki Banyan is only a block away from the warm sands and blue waters of world famous 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 the beach and see the surfers further out catching the waves. Shops, bars and restaurants are within blocks 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.
