Our freshly remodeled ground floor studio unit is located in the A building, just steps to the beach. This serene location is perfect for relaxing and enjoying your island vacation.

The Maui Banyan is an ideal and popular vacation getaway, conveniently located in South Kihei, just a short walk from the beautiful Kamaole Beach Park II and the nearby shops and restaurants. The grounds are beautifully landscaped & exceptionally well-maintained, offering 2 swimming pools, 2 hot tubs, a tennis court & two outdoor BBQ areas.

Our rates are very competitive and our newly-remodeled unit outshines most others with its fresh upgrades. We have invested an extraordinary amount of effort, time, and attention to detail to make our studio a truly comfortable "home away from home" for our guests. We sincerely hope that from the moment you arrive until your stay comes to an end you feel as if this was exactly the sort of place you were hoping to spend your vacation in.

While this studio sleeps up to 3 people, we also have an adjoining unit (Property ID: 1119315) that can be rented together for up to 8 people. That unit is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo with complete kitchen, dining area, living room, and lanai.

About Jackie Bowen

Hello! My name is Jeff and I have been a Hawaii resident for the past 24 years. My girlfriend Brooke was born and raised here on Maui, the granddaughter of legendary waterman and big-wave surfing pioneer Woodie Brown. We live in Kahului together with our two young boys just a few minutes from the fire station where I work as a Captain on a Special Operations unit. We bought this condo with my long-time friends Devin and Jackie, and together we hope to provide you with a great place to stay while you enjoy all Maui has to offer.

Jackie Bowen purchased this studio in 2017

Why Jackie Bowen chose Kihei

This is among the most well-maintained and best located resort properties in South Kihei. It's the sort of place we would like to stay if we were visiting on vacation.

What makes this studio unique

The Maui Banyan is literally just across the street from one of the best beaches on Maui--Kamaole Beach Park II. Other great beaches in Kihei and Wailea are just a few minutes drive away. There is a great variety of restaurants within walking and short driving distance, world-class golf, a well-maintained tennis court on property and--of course--pools, hot tubs, BBQs, etc.

This rental puts my Airbnb listing to shame!

  • 5 of 5

This condo (since it feels bigger than a studio) is extremely well organized and well equipped for its size. The location is perfect, just a brisk walk to Kamaole beach II, which is calm, with outstanding sunsets and ideal for snorkeling. We were amazed by the gigantic turtles we swam with there. We enjoyed many restaurants, grocery store (including a natural and organic one), food trucks and outdoor activities rentals all within walking distance. Jackie is a great host, checking in was super easy, the instructions were clear and she even accommodated us for our departure. The room was quiet, the lanai is intimate and the BBQ is really close by. With the ocean being almost closer than the pool, we did not even use it. A nice perk was all the beach gear included (chairs, umbrella, cooler, snorkel, towels, boogie boards, etc), everything came in very useful. Parking is easy, a few spots are not available for renter's use, but the worst case scenario is parking on the 3rd level of the parking structure close by, so no stress. We cooked a lot during our stay, although the kitchen is smaller than at home given the space but I must say it is very well equipped, all new and it was easy to manage. Obviously everything is super clean, everything is brand new. We loved our stay in this little paradise, we wish we were still there. Highly recommended place. Mahalo Jackie for a perfect stay.

Nice and clean place, just need more towels and lower the price a bit.

  • 3 of 5

It was a nice and clean place. Only problem was there was not enough towels if your staying for 6 to 7 days if you plan on going to the beach often. It was a bit pricey for not having a full kitchen, washer and dryer.

Owner's Response: Kelly, thank you for saying that our place was nice and clean--that is exactly what we strive for! There are a few other studios at Maui Banyan that are a little less in price, but we invested a lot of money into this unit to give it that brand new clean and modern feel that most of the other units there don’t have. Plus, this unit is in the building directly across from the beach, unlike the majority of the other units. While none of the studios at Maui Banyan have a full kitchen or washer/dryer, the studios are all less expensive than the bigger units that do offer those added conveniences. If you ever decide to come back to Maui Banyan, we have a couple of those larger units as well that might better suit you. I wish you would have called Jeff on Maui and asked for more beach towels. He would have been happy to deliver more to you, as he has done for the handful of guests who have made similar requests over the past couple of years. We aim to please, so we encourage all our guests to contact us if there is anything we can do to make their stay more enjoyable. Aloha!

A beautiful renovated studio suite!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in two other units at the Maui Banyan but we absolutely loved our stay in this unit. It was newly renovated and the owners had thought of everything a Hawaii vacationer would need. Everything was new and well thought out. Very clean, bed was comfortable, loved sitting out on the private lanai. The air conditioner was new and quiet. Lots of beach gear (towels, snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella). Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and they even thought to have unbreakable dishes so they could be taken to the pool. Thank you to the owners for making our week in Maui extra special.
