“Sunsets and Surfers from the Lanai at Banyan Tree”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2008

We booked our stay at the Banyan Tree through the VBRO website listing 62727. Our unit was a second floor corner unit and leased for $1050 for the week plus a $135 cleaning fee. It is a two bedroom with two baths and we split the costs with our friends which brought them to around $90 per night! But that's not all..it has the best sunsets and is a favorite area for surfers. Incredible views, the sound of the waves, nice pool, great hot tub, are just a few favorites of ours. We have stayed at this property three times and will continue to stay there when we visit the Big Island. There is assigned parking under the building and a convenient elevator to access the floors above. It is 8 to 10 minutes into Kona and there is a convenience store right across the street for essentials. The condo itself has not been updated in awhile but has a large lanai due to its corner location. There is a grill outside that works great and the unit has a washer and dryer as well. There is no air conditioning but the breeze off the water is all we ever needed. Great place at a price that makes sense. I give the Banyan Tree the highest recommendation and this particular unit is just right for us.
