If you want an inexpensive larger two bed, two bath unit on a busy road, a 10 minute walk from the beach, fronting an extremely busy parking lot beneath a unit where you can hear every footstep your neighbors take, ALL NIGHT LONG, stay here. The 'lanai' is a deck which provides a view of said parking lot and an... More

Aloha and I am so sorry your visit to our property was less than acceptable. From your comment, it appears you may have rented from an individual owner represented by a Realtor through VRBO. FYI we do not advertise our managed vacation rental units through VRBO. Your comment is correct as the few ground floor 2 bedroom units at Banyan... More

have stayed here twice in the past and going again 2015. I personally like it here, I prefer the rooms away from the road because if you are near them you have a very noisy atmosphere where the motorcycle trucks cars etc accelerate going up the hill by the road not good! But I enjoyed staying on the other side... More

My husband and I did an RCI exchange for the week. The place was very spacious, clean, nice views of the ocean, outside deck, nice kitchen with all of the necessities, and Kiki was very helpful at all times. The pool house was convenient and a nice place to lounge, grill and included a salt water pool.

Nice 2 floor Condo with 2 rooms. Quite and located near the airport (5 min drive). We found a dirty kleenex under our bed, other than that the Condo was clean, convenient and spacious. Staff is friendly. Kiki is very helpfull and knows very well the island. Five minutes walk from Kalapaki beach and from famous Duke's restaurant.

The units are clean and well equipped in every way. But it's the location that is perfect. Across the road from Kalapaki beach that's great swimming for all ages even surfing if you want it. Dukes and other fine restaurants in walking distance. Love the Kalipaki Beach Hut for Breakfast and Lunch. Grocery stores are a short drive as well... More

We went there by exchanging the week with RCI. The staff was helpful. Concierge Kiki is good and helpful but is usually there only till noon. The units were outdated. Beds hard, sofa was dirty and stunk. Slider for balcony was broken and very hard to open. There were cockroaches in the kitchen and bathroom. Wifi never worked and we... More

Loved the place. Clean upgraded appointment. Location prefect for every thing. Very quiet at night we had a view of the harbor. Staff friendly (KiKi booked some great stuff for us.) We will book a longer stay next time.

I have owned 2 weeks here for about 3 years but always used them for trading. This was our first time at Banyan Harbor and on Kauai. While this was my owned week, I didn't stay in my assigned unit (76) as we had another family with us and we wanted two units together. I had traded another week in... More

If you are going to spend a lot of money on travel to Kauai, and allocate money for food and activities, please do your homework on the place you'll be sleeping! My wife and I were very disappointed with the condition of the Banyan Harbor "Resort" in Lihue. Actually, we could have made due, but we invited friends to stay... More
