About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 full Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

2BR/2BA - 1400 Square Feet-

Imagine - warm tropical climate, gentle sounds of waves washing ashore, palm trees swaying in the breeze, panoramic views, comfortable accommodations - is there any other way to experience Hawaii? You can't get much closer to the ocean, and this one is as close as it gets, the view is Awesome!! . People comment that they feel like they are on a boat !! Watch whales, turtles, dolphins, and surfers from your own private 400 square foot lanai only 20 feet off the ocean. Prepare meals as often or as little as you like in the fully-equipped kitchen, which includes a washer/dryer too. Take a dip in the ocean view swimming pool or relax in the Jacuzzi. This is the perfect location close to downtown Kona, as well as the Keauhou shopping center. Third floor unit ( yes there is an elevator)

Unit includes free wifi- free phone service-free covered assigned parking- all of the home and beach amenities you will need.

*******This is the only style unit in the building that has a private master suite. The bedrooms are part of the living room in the other units.

********Our lanai is three times larger than the rest of the units in the building. This wrap around feature also allows for the mountain to be viewed.


( Photos are recent- process of re-shooting video)


MOST OFTEN ASKED QUESTIONS: Are you near the beach ? We are located at Banyan Beach so the beach is right beside the building.There are also 4-5 pocket beaches in Kona. I would describe them as about 50 yards in length, some are white sand.Some are white sand and lava rock.

How close is the ocean to the unit ? If you were any closer you would be in a boat. Watch our video and you will see that Banyan Tree sits right on top of the ocean and this unit is located at the closest point to the ocean. We are at the closest point to the surfers.

I've been ripped off in Hawaii before, are you real ? I just got ripped off myself at a hotel in Pismo Beach, Ca. last summer so I understand where this is coming from. First off please read our reviews. They are totally controlled by Homeaway and are from actual guests. I am a licensed real estate broker with Remax in La Jolla, Ca and licensed broker in Hawaii also. I take a personal pride in the fact that the unit is exactly as advertised and that you are comfortable during your stay. W71118091-01 Tax ID Don 858-337-9396 Yuri 808-339-5130

I am so thankful for all of the gracious people that have stayed with us over the past seven years. Hawaii is the land of Aloha.

We look forward to sharing our oceanfront home with you !

About Don

Licenced real estate broker in California and Hawaii.

Don purchased this condo in 2007

Why Don chose Kailua-Kona

I haven't seen anywhere in Hawaii that the ocean comes in like it does at Banyan Tree. The people in Kona are absolutely the friendliest people I have encountered on the islands with the feel of old Hawaii still intact. Kona is my favorite city in Hawaii and in the future Banyan Tree will be my next home.

What makes this condo unique

This is the only style unit in the building that has a private master suite. Rest of building the bedrooms are part of the living room. Our lanai is three times larger than the rest of the units in the building, not only giving more space but adding a view of the volcano overlooking Kona.

Great Condo and Location

  • 5 of 5

If your looking to relax with the on top of the ocean , then you will love this place. ( The view is so much prettier in person than the photos show) Walking into the living room you feel like your walking onto the ocean. Clean rooms, very comfortable beds, full amenities, everything you would want for a place away from home. Not a large complex so it's never too busy at the pool or hot tub which are perfectly heated and maintained. Nice to return to our reserved parking spot.

It has a beautiful view being right on the water so enjoyed sunsets every night right from the lanai.

What a fantastic week we just had in this unit for the second time in five years!

Everything is exactly as described and the photos listed are a very accurate depiction of what you actually get. Look forward to our return.

The view from the condo is exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved whale watching from the lanai. Sleeping with the sound of the surf was great! We also enjoyed all the surfing we saw each day and one day there was a youth surfing competition! The pool area is nice and we used the grill one night. Don was easy to work with and even allowed us to check in early. The unit was clean but could benefit from a little "tlc" (tender loving care). However the view is priceless! Loved it!

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We loved being on Ocean front and the view was wonderful to behold at sunset. The owner, Don, was Very helpful and we were quite happy there. If we do Kona side again it is for sure that we will book the Banyon tree again.

Wonderful family vacation! Great Location on the Ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of six adults. Loved the location and will stay longer next time. It was like staying at a friends condo. Any thing we could have needed was there. My husband and I gave the bedrooms to the our adult kids and spouses. We took the fold out couch with the wonderful view and sounds of the ocean. The mattress is in need of replacement but they had foam in the extra bedroom we used and it was fine. It is everything you could expect or need in a beach house. The Views and watching the locals surf was the best! Don was really great to work with and I am so thankful he shared his Condo with us. Any future renters please take extra care when staying he has all rules and excellent suggestions for the area. I want this property to stay available!
