Property description

Big Island Vacation Houses presents: The Banyan House. This lush, tropical oasis is located in beautiful North Kohala and offers an immersive Hawaiian experience removed from the tourist traps and bustle of other locales. In fact, it may have you believing you're a local.

A large variety of lush flora envelopes and divides the property, including hibiscus, birds of paradise, orchids, ferns, palms, an awesome banyan tree and fruit trees offering the freshest mangoes, papayas, bananas, and avocados that are yours for the picking. Savor oceanic, pastoral or jungle views as tropical birds sing, geckos chatter, the island breezes caress the trees, and the resonance of the tide rhythmically whispering in the distance.

The Banyan House is two stories of luxury, housing an impressive 9 foot solid koa-slab island in the 1st floor kitchen, large first & second story lanais (including a screened in area on the second story that can be used as a third bedroom), two queen sized bedrooms, 2 full baths with 1/2 bath plus separate private outdoor Bali Stone shower that is great after a day at the beach.

You are a short drive from the historic town of Kapaau, home of the original King Kamehameha I Statue. The charming downtown area has great art galleries and several wonderful restaurant as well as Kamehameha Park which has great tennis courts, a public swimming pool, a skate park and wonderful children playground. There is even a small public golf course you can play on for a nominal fee. A short drive in the other direction leads you Keokea Beach Park, which is a great spot for a picnic. Continue on and you come to the end of the road at the stunning Pololu Valley Overlook where you can enjoy a spectacular view hike down to the valley.

A few minutes past Kapaau is the colorful town of Hawi, known as North Kohala’s biggest little town. It is home to a weekly farmer’s market that we think is one of the best on the island. Be sure to sample local varieties of popular fruits, like apple bananas, strawberry papaya and in season, super sweet white pineapple! Hawi is also the bicycle turnaround for the annual Ironman World Championship held every October and has a great selection of unique shops and tasty restaurants. The world famous Bamboo Restaurant is consistently voted one of the best restaurants on the island with a great lineup of live music featuring award winning Hawaiian musicians. There are also wonderful alternative healing practices located here, with massage therapists , acupuncture specialists, naturopaths, herbalists, and a variety of yoga styles represented.

North Kohala is perfectly located to take advantage of many fun activities including scenic coastal rides on horseback or ATVs, the Kohala Zipline, Kayaking the Kohala Ditch and hiking trails galore. Head up the mountain road to Waimea and experience one of the best scenic drives in the US, with incredible views of Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea and its observatories and a birds eye view of South Kohala with all its resorts and white sand beaches. The beaches in Kohala are the best on the island, including world famous Hapuna beach (Conde Nast rated it one of the top 10 beaches in the world), scenic Mauna Kea Beach, child friendly Spencer Beach Park and local favorite Beach 69.

This private Eden reveals three other private houses spread out over 2 acres and presents a variety of accommodations, as each house offers it's own distinctive floor plan. The entire property sleeps 18-20. Please view our other rental listings at VRBO/215410, VRBO/152916 and VRBO/452049. The listing for the whole property is VRBO/481173
