Makawao house description

Removed from the hotel / resort beachfront crowds, the 2.1 acre Banyan Tree Estate simply overflows with peace and Hawaiiana. Giant Banyan, Monkeypod and Jacaranda trees create a peaceful, shady oasis a midst the fruit trees, flowers and wide open lawns. Several swings and hammocks hang from the trees offering comfortable private places . Our 50' salt water swimming pool and Hot tub offers spectacular ocean and mountain views. We have a 700 sq ft fully equipped Yoga Studio including full A/V equipment
Furnished in traditional island style furniture, the living room, formal dining room and bedrooms will give you the flavor of old Hawaii.

We are just a short walk to the quaint Cowboy town of Makawao, and 15 minutes to Paia and Ho'okipa, the internationally-renown windsurfing mecca of Maui's spectacular north shore!

On the cusp of the wet and dry sides of the island, the Banyan Tree House usually is bathed in sunshine interspersed with occasional rain showers and heavier tropical rain. In the surrounding hills you have the finest hiking, biking and horseback riding on the island. There are two golf courses in the area. Telephone, fax, wireless internet and laundry facilities included on the premises.
