                          This is the perfect oceanfront location close to downtown Kona, as well as the Keauhou shopping center, with all of the fantastic restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, but also several grocery stores, WalMart and even a Costco close by. You are directly oceanfront, with nothing between you and the blue Pacific ocean. Unobstructed, panoramic ocean views.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Michael and Candace Spinali, San Diego , California. Michael is a San Diego native and Candace is from Michigan. We have been married for 25 years and have two children. Our oldest son Michael graduated May 2014 from SDSU (Electrical Engineering) and is now enrolled in graduate school. Our youngest son Cole is in the 11th grade and loves to play volleyball 24/7. We have been going to Hawaii for over a decade now! We enjoy our island getaway. Our condo is our sanctuary..peaceful,private,tranquil.. and a definite detox remedy for life in the fast lane! It is our special place that we reconnect as a family, and we feel so blessed to have so many happy memories of Banyan Tree and the Big Island.

                          Why the Owner Chose Banyan Tree:
                          After exploring the Hawaiian Islands we narrowed our search for a vacation home to the Big Island. It took us three years of looking to finally find our getaway!(And several months of construction once we did find it!) Our 'had to have list' was extensive. We knew what we wanted because we had vacationed in so many other vacation homes. We had to be on the ocean ( we had to be able to view sunsets, surfers, and whales from the unit!), the lanai had to be private(no fishbowl!) we had to have two bedrooms ...the master had to have a king sized pillowtop bed and the guest room had to be able to have two full beds ( our oldest son is 6'4' and still growing! ) We love our sanctuary! The sound of the waves, the view from almost every room, the 40' wall of glass to let the view in, the pool is fantastic, and the local people are beautiful! We love Kona and look forward to returning everytime we go...and then we hate to leave and we always plan our next visit before we even get on the plane to leave! It truly is paradise...it's the perfect place to unwind and escape from everyday busy life! It is a magical place and we love sharing our island home with families from all over the world!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          The location is close to everything, and so peaceful with the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep every night.
