Building Analysis - Waikiki Banyan: The twin towers of the Waikiki Banyan is a popular investor choice for a condotel in Waikiki. The building is just few blocks from the beach and since the units have full kithcens they tend to be easier to finance than some other condotels. Aston manages the hotel program but owners are free to manage the unit themselves, hire a 3rd party manager, or live in the unit.
Waikiki Banyan was originally zoned has a hotel but has since been rezoned as a residential building. As a result, only owners that have maintained a non conforming use certificate to allow for overnight rentals may legally rent their units out for less than one month, Honolulu's Department of Planning and Permitting maintains a list of Non Conforming Use Certificates here: http://www.honoluludpp.org/Portals/0/pdfs/HotIssues/NUCreport.pdf
