Great news for travellers to Oahu, Hawaii over the next few months!…/mayor-caldwell-says-oahu-…/

The City and County of Honolulu has a specific framework for reducing the spread of COVID-19 on Oahu, with criteria set for loosening and tightening restrictions on businesses and activities to keep the residents of Honolulu healthy. There are four tiers, Tier 1 is the most restrictive and Tier 4 is the most relaxed.

Oahu is currently in Tier 1 but if the seven-day average of new cases and the average of positivity rates continue to meet required metrics for another two weeks, then Honolulu will move on Oct. 22 to Tier 2 restrictions.

This means that “Legal short-term rentals” such as Darmic Waikiki Banyan can once again operate for our short-term guests.

Our guests safety is our top priority – and both Darmic and the Waikiki Banyan are following all applicable city, state and federal statutory and regulatory requirements – as well as offering contact-less check-in (and check-out) and full sanitizing cleans between bookings.
