A good value priced for this spacious unit. Other owners may charge less or many change raise up the daily rate depending on the season, however, the size, quality, furnishings, and location sets this vacation unit far apart.
Quiet here, too - very relaxing. Suggest while checking other units advertising online for Banyan Harbor, ask if on ground level near the road, & if air conditioned. Units offered near main road will experience vehicle noises from local island traffic that can be noticeable.

About the owner: Hi there - Greetings from Greg and Karen.
Fell in Love with Kauai, and always dreamed of living in Hawaii part time. Currently live in San Rafael, between San Francisco and the wine country in Northern California. For 10 years Karen is very involved in her Rotary service club. As a couple, we volunteer as Ambassadors for our favorite humanitarian Rotary project called Give Hope-Give a Hand project. We've travelled worldwide training fellow Rotary members to give out a FREE prosthetic hands in their own country. The LN-4 Prosthetic Hand is distributed at no cost to those missing a hand below the elbow to restore up to 35% daily usefulness and dignity. South Africa, Zambia, and Mexico have been our focus lately to teach and train non-medical volunteers who also want to serve and we are hosted by the local Rotary clubs. Greg and I enjoy adventure travel and hosting guests in our California home as well.
Why the Owner Chose Lihue: Banyan Harbor is a nice, well maintained complex. It is a low-rise (2 stories) not super fancy, which keeps the prices reasonable, great location and still had many bells and whistles. As the locals say: 'You can't build no taller than the Coconut trees.' Found the staff and manager of the resort were long-term islanders, and very friendly make our stays so enjoyable. The grounds & landscaping are well cared for. Tropical flowers blooming everywhere, with a few wild chickens that occasionally run through the property. Numerous places to walk a block away to grab a bite, watch the surfers, or shop. Our friends and family say they enjoy seeing the interaction of fishing boats, tugboats, and Cruise ships sail into the Harbor. We like the local small town atmosphere of Lihue area without having numerous cookie-cutter hotel chains as neighbors (except just one luxury Marriot at far end of the Kalapaki beach.) Centrally location for Kauai - just 25 minutes to Poipu Beach, or 5 minutes to in-town shopping, Costco & a shopping mall just 1 mile away to save $ on groceries and personal needs. Lots of good, inexpensive local Hawaiian places to eat in and around Lihue and Kaapa area (the island's two biggest towns.) Lihue is one mile drive, & Kaapa town about a 10 minute drive. Close to golf, swimming, kyaking, stand up paddle boards, surfing and activities. Watch birds, smell fragrant flowers and see an occasional gecko, in the early morning, on our deck while eating breakfast. YES- Pleasant for evening cocktails on the patio enjoying the warm weather and ocean views.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Interior is decorated Hawaiian style with local colors and décor with simple wall art, and comfortable furniture. A medium size pool sits hilltop of property with lounge chairs to sunbathe & see beautiful ocean views. Mainly we love the proximity to Kalapaki beach across the street to take a daily swim, and snorkel. Fun just to watch many paddleboarders, beach walkers or hang out at Duke's Canoe Club for a beer & light meal. Kalapaki beach offers many benefits: mainly one of the safest, clean swimming public beach in Kauai as it's protected by the Harbor. No fear of giant crashing waves or riptides if you have small children, elderly or a new to ocean swimming. Quiet. Relaxing. Romantic. Great for Honeymoons and Anniversaries!
