My husband and I were lucky enough to visit Hawai'i Island for a week this past June. After much research, I decided the Banyan Tree was "the one". Our regular haunt, the Keauhou Outrigger, was sadly no more and we needed a new place to call home when we were in Paradise. I checked out many reviews both on Tripadvisor... More

Very handy to to downtown, yet easy to get out of town. It was great to be able to sit on the balcony and have our morning coffee while watching surfers or sea turtles. Sunsets were lovely to see also. And it's not far down the highway to the best coffee in the world. Very clean 2 bedroom apartment. We... More

This very clean and gorgeous complex nearly overhangs the edge of the ocean! Its also THE spot for local surfers to test their skills which makes for amazing entertainment...as do the fabulous...

My wife and I stayed in Unit 401 of the Banyan Tree for 4 nights. As has been mentioned in numerous reviews it is a great location right on the water a few kilometers outside Kona . It is in Ali Drive and is opposite the Banyan Mart which is shown in Google Maps. The design of the building means... More

What an amazing stay listening to the waves and watching the spectacular sunsets. The reviews are just what you get with no surprises. Lanai is huge, the pool spotless and BBQ's cleaned everyday. We will always think of the ocean view with fond memories of Hawaii. Thank you Ryan!

I stayed at this condo with my husband, sister, brother in law and niece. To borrow my niece's review of the place--AWESOME! Pictures on rental sites do not do this place justice. The views are SPECTACULAR! Floor to ceiling windows looking out over the Pacific. Surfers and body boarders every morning, gorgeous sunsets every night, dolphins swimming by mid-day and... More

My sister and I stayed in this wonderful condo in March of this year. We have been to the Islands many times and have a favorite condo on Maui and Kauai; now we have one on the Big Island: Banyan Tree #302! We always stay ocean front, so the view was what we expected. We watched surfers all day, and... More

What a wonderful place to stay! No wonder it books up so quickly! This condo was recommended by a friend who had stayed and loved it and we can only second her accolades. The view is spectacular, just a few feet from the ocean, and the wall of windows and doors maximizes the oceanfront setting. During our stay we loved... More

Let's start with the good, or great, I should say. THE VIEW. The unit is ON the water. Doesn't get much better. Your lanai overlooks the ocean. While no sandy beach area (just a rocky water's edge), there is a "public beach access" entry directly next to the property where local surfers and body boarders come every day. My husband... More

Great week on the Big Island. This condo had a great ocean view, and the sound of the waves blocked any noise from the road. Sunsets were wonderful, and I saw my first green flash. There was plenty of space for the two of us (we didn't even use the second bedroom), so this would be a good place for... More
