Our 3rd stay

  • 5 of 5
We have just recently enjoyed our third annual stay in Candace's condo. The oceanfront view from Kamoa Point to the south to the Kailua Kona harbor to the north with all of the surfers on the Banyan Break in front of the condo has to be the best on the Kona Coast. Our days started on the lanai with a cup of Kona coffee and reading the West Hawaii newspaper from the convenient Banyan Mart across the street. We took daily walks both up and down the coast on Alii Drive, and sometimes ventured mauka to the residential neighborhoods for an uphill workout. This year we took two excursions with Hawaii Forest and Trail who do an excellent job of not only showing us the sights, but also explaining the Hawaiian history of the area. Our favorite dinner site this year was the Kona Inn and for a sunset sandwich we like Humpy's. This condo is a very comfortable place to get on island time and relax, enjoying the excellent Kona weather. Thanks Candace for a wonderful stay! D & L

First, let me say the ocean view from this condo is absolutely breathtaking beyond words. Everything about this unit is exactly as the owner described, and it is exactly what my husband and I anticipated...and more! The unit is beautifully decorated with comfortable, high end furnishings throughout. What you see in the photos really is what you get, and more. The kitchen is fully equiped and well adorned with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances...and the ocean view again from here is awesome! Our son is 14 and loved his own room which was also tastefully decorated and comfortable. He was happy with the Wi-Fi and never turned on the TV. The Master bed was comfortable and the gentle roar of the ocean was like a soothing lulliby every night we were there. In addition, the owners had a nice selection of water toys; boogie boards, snorkle gear, an Umbrella, beach chairs and mats, and a cooler that we used to pack lunch and drinks while we were traveling around the island. The unit is quiet and close to everything. We used the pool and the hot tub every day and the grounds were clean and well maintained including new grass and a very nice new rock wall that was recently replaced. Everything about this condo was perfect for us. We stayed for two weeks and it wasn't long enough..We are now planning another trip to The Big Island for three weeks and there is no need to look any further...this is definately the place to stay. Mahalo Candace!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words. I so appreciate the time you took to write such a wonderful review. And I am especially happy to know that your time spent on the Big Island and your stay in Banyan Tree 204 was a great experience! I am happy to hear that my free concierge service was helpful. (This is a service that I provide to all of my vacationers) And all my vacationers love Wendy! As a guest/ visitor to the Big Island, it is nice to know that there is a person only a telephone call or email away that will help arrange your activities or answer any questions She saves you so much time and money. She lives locally so she knows the island extremely well. And yes, the view from the condo is breathtaking. The lanai is definitely my happy place. Again, I truly appreciate your review and my island home (and the lanai) is always ready to welcome you back!

Aloha, We enjoyed our stay at the Banyan Tree unit 204. The view is spectacular! Loved listening to the ocean waves. We watched the surfers, whales and turtles from the lanai. The condo is beautfully decorated staying with the Hawaiian theme. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The grounds are well maintained. We were offered concerige services from Big Island Vacation Services. They gave recommendations and made our reservations. We would strongly suggest The Blue Hawaiiann Helicopter 2 hour tour. The Banyan Tree Market is right across the street and they carry many items plus Kona beer was cheaper than the main grocery store. Absolutely would recommend this condo to anyone visiting Kona, HI. We loved everything!
Mahola Candace for all your advice!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind words! I so appreciate the time you spent to write such a wonderful review. The view mesmerizes me every time I am staying in paradise. I love to watch the ocean waves roll in and having whales, turtles, and surfers to watch makes it all that more magical. The Banyan Mart is one of those hidden gems along Alii Drive. They have many items inside that little convenient mart. I do offer all of my guests a free concierge service from Big Island Vacation Services and I am so happy that they were able to assist you. They are awesome ladies that live locally and I have found them to be very good at arranging activities and saving people time and money. It truly makes my day to know that you enjoyed your stay and I hope to have you return some day.

Candace's condo is lovely. We found the unit to be exactly as presented in the listing. A gorgeous condo...with great amenities and an amazing location/view! I thought the cost was super reasonable. The location was great...easy to get into town and anywhere else. Close to lots of things. Unit was very tidy & clean. Great layout inside and the lanai is a great bonus. Snorkeling on the Big Island is absolutely amazing. We took our kids (ages 12 & 14) snorkeling in some nearby locations and they LOVED it. The only thing I did not note when booking was whether or not the unit had air conditioning - it does not have A/C, though the 3 ceiling fans make it much more comfortable. Our kids absolutely loved the condo pool. We enjoyed using it day & night. Overall a wonderful stay. Candace was very responsive to any questions we had prior to arriving. And she did great follow up after our stay. I would absolutely recommend this unit to others. Thank you Candace!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! It definitely is amazing, even during the hottest time of the year when you were there, at how comfortable all of the ceiling fans can make your stay. The trade winds off the ocean are heavenly. I think that is why 99% of the condos that are oceanfront in Kona do not have AC. (For future travelers, as a correction, there are four commercial ceiling fans not three :) ) My kids love the pool too and the hot tub. I think the pool/hot tub at Banyan have the best view in all of Kona! I am happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Banyan Tree and I look forward to your return!
With Much Aloha,


From the Owner

After exploring the Hawaiian Islands we narrowed our search for a vacation home to the Big Island. It took us three years of looking to finally find our getaway!(And several months of construction once we did find it!) Our 'had to have list' was extensive. We knew what we wanted because we had vacationed in so many other vacation homes. We had to be on the ocean ( we had to be able to view sunsets, surfers, and whales from the unit!), the lanai had to be private(no fishbowl!) we had to have two bedrooms ...the master had to have a king sized pillowtop bed and the guest room had to be able to have two full beds ( our oldest son is 6'4' and still growing! ) We love our sanctuary! The sound of the waves, the view from almost every room, the 40' wall of glass to let the view in, the pool is fantastic, and the local people are beautiful! We love Kona and look forward to returning everytime we go...and then we hate to leave and we always plan our next visit before we even get on the plane to leave! It truly is's the perfect place to unwind and escape from everyday busy life! It is a magical place and we love sharing our island home with families from all over the world!
