Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was great - really enjoyed it. No problems or issues at all as we found the property to be clean, in excellent repair and well-appointed. I would recommend this unit to others. The only very minor item to note is the vacuum wasn't functioning properly - not sure why.

We were very pleased with our recent stay at Banyan Tree condominiums. We brought our two boys, ages 10 and 14. They really liked having their own bedroom with twin beds. This unit is on the 4th floor and has an amazing view. The photos are very accurate. Every morning we relaxed with our coffee on the lanai and watched the surfers right outside our back door. When the tide was low we saw turtles resting on the tidepools at the condos next door. The condo is very clean, comfortable and well stocked. We enjoyed having the thick beach towels, the beach mats, and cooler. The beds were very comfortable (and we are picky about our beds!) and the sheets and bath towels are of very good quality. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of dishes, pots, knives, etc. We looked at a lot of places on VRBO and decided what we really wanted was a place with a great view of the ocean and this place did not disappoint. The location can't be beat - not too close to all the hub-bub of downtown Kona, but not too far that you can't drive down there in about 5 minutes. We really appreciated the assigned parking right under the building and the security of the building. We felt very safe leaving our windows open at night and falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The building has about 18 units from what we could tell; the pool is very clean and literally right near the ocean. There's a hot tub too. It's all beautifully maintained by the building manager, Dana, who is very helpful and friendly. We had the pool area to ourselves every day. The condo location served as a good launching pad for all our activities. We drove to Volcano one day, drove up north twice, visited several local beaches, tried out many dining places on the water and took a boat trip with Sea Quest, which was amazing. I highly recommend them. We rented snorkeling gear just up the street at Millers. Mark got us all outfitted in less than 30 minutes. We also ate at Da Poke Shack just around the corner from Millers. Very yummy. Bhavesh, the condo owner, was very accommodating throughout the entire process. He was easy to communicate with via email, always responding quickly. We had no problems at all and would definitely return. The only suggestion I would have is one more comfy chair to sit on in the living room area. Other than that, the condo is nicely furnished with a sofa, wooden chair, dinette set and very nice furniture on the lanai. We ate out there several times. We'll definitely return!

Owner's Response: Sarah, many thanks for a wonderful review. On your recommendation we purchased and installed two new beautiful bamboo chairs for the living room. Also we now have air conditioning in the unit.
In addition, we have a new sofabed and a new mattress pad for the sofabed to make it even more comfortable. We have installed new ductwork for our dryer so that it now vents through the roof instead of into the condo. There is a new flat screen HD LED TV and an internet enabled blueray DVD in the guest bedroom.
The swimming pool and patio area was completely refurbished in September 2013. The garage had new asphalt laid in September 2013 also.

At the Banyon Tree you will find the best views of the ocean from the west wall of windows. In the mornings, catch the surfers riding a morning wave. The unit overlooks one of the few spots for surfing on the whole west coast. This balcony is also ideal for viewing the last rays of sunshine as the sun sets over a gorgeous ocean. Watch for the green flash!
If you are the adventurous type, you will be happy to know that you have easy access to some great adventures; Kayaking, surfing, hiking, sight-seeing, and my personal favorite, cliff-diving. Just south of the Banyon Tree you can find a place to challenge your inner fears of falling. Take the plunge or just enjoy the scenery. Either way, I encourage you to find The End of the Earth.
Being a vegan makes life as a tourist a little more difficult. At the Banyon Tree I was able to cook my own meals with simple ingredients that are found around the corner.
Come back to the Banyon Tree after a long day, clean up, and set out for an interesting night on the town for food, music, or shopping.

Everything else was great as well. Nicely furnished..good kitchen..nice pool. Owner called just after we arrived to make sure everything was good. nice!
We will return here for sure!

We had an amazing vacation and loved staying at the Banyan tree. The location is awesome and the building itself is fairly small and quaint. Bhavesh, owner, was great to deal with and his condo had everything we could need for our stay. Our family of 2 adults and 3 children were very comfortable here and had a blast. We will be back!!! Thank you for letting us stay at your home!

A brilliant Condo in a fantastic location.

This Condo was just as advertised and exceeded our expectations. We arrived late at night after a long journey from England and Bhavesh, the owner, kept in contact through E Mail and phone until we were safely installed. This excellent communication started at the booking stage and he was very helpful with local information.
We stayed for a month and couldn't have asked for better facilities or equipment. From everyday cookware to coffee machine everything was provided. It was wonderful to sit on the Lanai with its fantastic view and enjoy a meal or drink. So nice not to have to always go out to a bar or restaurant to sit by the sea. The Condo was very clean with a large fridge freezer and oven which made storage and cooking easy. The bathrooms were of a good size with excellent hot showers. Plenty of power points to charge up all our devices and cameras. The internet worked well even with three of us on it a lot of the time. The air conditioning worked well and there were extra fans available if needed. We sat on the Lanai and watched the brilliant surfers every day. We saw turtles in the shallow pools and a couple of times spied a jumping dolphin. The most entertaining were the whales. We watched them several times a day and got expert at seeing them spouting. We saw them breaching and doing tail flips - one did 43 in a row! The sunsets were beautiful and the noise of the sea very enjoyable. The Condo was in an excellent location and we walked into Kona once which took about an hour. We could have walked to the beach park but had too much to take. We went into Kona by car which only took a few minutes and ate in several restaurants and bars.Da Poke shack, 2 minutes walk away was brilliant for fresh fish. Three large supermarkets were about a ten minute drive and there was a useful farmers market in Kona centre. Everything was really accessible and we drove north to some nice beaches (Hapuna and Spencer Park).The beach chairs provided were really useful. We went to Hilo and the Volcano Park (over the Saddle road) on one day and by leaving early we were there and back in daylight. We visited Kahalu'u beach park, which was a few minutes drive, several times and it was fantastic to see so many colourful fish and swim with the turtles. The pool and parking space were good to have.
An amazing holiday, excellent Condo and brilliant location on the sea.

From the Owner

We love Hawaii - a little unspoilt corner of this planet. This condo has an excellent oceanfront location, is really comfortable and beautiful, well furnished, clean, bright and very convenient to everywhere. The entire building underwent a major renovation in 2008 and the Homeowners' Association continues to improve and maintain the building. Even though there are just twenty units in the building, we have a great building manager living on-site looking after the building's common elements.
