As I write this review I am sitting on the lanai watching 18 surfers show their skills and taking in the salt air and ocean waves. Unit 405 is amazing and I would highly recommend it. Close to town, new everything, clean, convenient, and somy breathtaking. We will definitely be back!!!

Stayed in unit 405. When we arrived the temperature in the unit was roughly 110°. The biggest downfall of the unit is the lack of air conditioning. Kona is extremely warm and humid. sleeping in the unit was very uncomfortable. We had to go out and buy several fans then return them. It took at least five days to get... More

We stayed in #401 and it's great! The pool is nicely cared for and kept clean As is the got tub. This unit is located at the end of Ali'i Drive so you are away from the hussle of the downtown and just get peace & quiet but you are close enough to still be able to run in. This... More

We absolutely loved our stay in #302. It was beautiful, and the view cannot be beat! We loved just sitting on the balcony and watching the surfers. You can watch sea turtles playing in the surf from the balcony. Listening to the ocean an night was beyond soothing. Certainly better than any sound machine we've ever used! The only way... More

We went in Hawai for 2 weeks in july 2014 and have stayed in 5 different locations (all condos - Lahaina, Hana, Hilo, Kona and kihei) and I have to mention that this unit was the best condo unit we had on our vacation. It was the best by far and we would have stayed there longer. Why we liked... More

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

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!
