    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We loved our stay in the property and were wishing that we could have stayed longer. It was clean, the beds were extremely comfortable. Having the pantry stocked was a lovely touch as we were able to do our own cooking with ease. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property."

  • This is THE place to stay on the Big Island!

    "We spent 5 amazing nights in this condo. As two couples, the set up of the unit was perfect. The kitchen was well-stocked with all our cooking needs. The appliances were all top-notch..including a great coffee maker! This was such a great setup..much better than being confined to a hotel room..even the upscale ones are limited. The living room had a great TV and sofa/loveseat setup. We enjoyed just relaxing and chatting with each other as the cool tropical breeze came through all the lovely windows. There is an air conditioner but the trade winds coupled with the large number of windows made it unnecessary. There were two large bedrooms on each end of the condo so there was lots of privacy. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was much more luxurious than mine at home! I felt totally pampered and taken care of. The owners were nice enough to have a couple of beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel, 4 very large beach towels…and best of all was a large ice chest that we made use of as we did our daily trips around the very large Big Island. The best part of the condo was the lanai. There was a great BBQ and lovely round dining table with comfortable chairs. The second-story view was overlooking the golf course and had a wonderful vista with the setting sun over the Pacific Ocean. We carefully checked for the condo that would have that vista. The Hawaiian sunsets are what I was looking for in this vacation. The Hali’i Kai condos are immaculately taken care of. We joked about how long it would take them to tidy up a fallen coconut frond..not long. The grounds are very pleasant to walk or do a quick run. The Lava Lava Club in the Waikaloa area was wonderful for a sunset dinner (Seared Ahi was amazing). The best adventure we had was a morning snorkeling experience on the SeaQuest..the boat fits only 10 people. It is a ‘fast’ boat so those of us with seasickness tendencies had NO trouble. They also took care of the newbies (use the foam ‘noodle’) and had very well fitted snorkels, masks. The owners were very helpful with the booking and planning. They suggested stopping at Costco after the airport and just as you leave Kailua-Kona. I cannot begin to tell you how great their condo is. Obviously, they are pros at this. Instructions were very clear on how to operate everything (AC, BBQ, etc). All in all (I had to cut this short..running out of room)..this is the place you want to stay on the Big Island!"

  • Delightful Retreat

    "We had a lovely time at the Banyan House. The house is delightfully tucked away down a secluded driveway, and we couldn't have been happier with the setting and privacy. The house is clean and comfortable, with a magnificent kitchen, a killer outdoor shower, a stocked closet of beach toys, and endless Lanais. At first we were disappointed with the distance of the ocean view, but we came to enjoy the contrasts of land, water, trees, and sky we could see from the upstairs Lanai. We found the sunny backyard perfect for morning yoga, and spent the evenings eating and talking around the enormous kitchen table. Each morning at the Banyan house brings an absolute cacophony of bird song at dawn. We enjoyed it, but it might be disturbing for some people. The house was ideally located for exploring the wonders of North Kohala. We loved walking the cliffs at Koekea beach park, and the quick access to Pololu Valley and both Kapaau and Hawi town. The drive to the Kohala resort areas and beaches, and up to Waimea wasn't bad. But it was a bit far for trips to Kona, or Hilo/Volcano. We enjoyed being surrounded by the beauty and tropical lushness of North Kohala, but if your vacation plans include the rest of the island, be prepared to spend some time in the car."

  • Home Away From Home

    "What a wonderful place to stay while visiting the beautiful island of Hawaii over the holidays. The photos included represent the condo perfectly. The Condo was clean, roomy and well equipped with towels, sheets, beach toys and kitchen items. Everything we needed was there. It is within walking distance of a grocery store and places to eat and is located on very well maintained and beautiful grounds. Breakfast at Lava Java and dinner at Pueo's Osteria was fabulous. The owner Amanda was very helpful and always available. Since we were traveling over the holidays she alerted us to local store hours and their locations. Our 2 week vacation could not have been better."
