About Marie

Aloha! We are Steve, Marie, Tyler and Dalton Preitauer. While we wish we could say we live on Maui all year, we actually live in Colorado and spend time on Maui as much as possible. While Steve was a Mid-western boy growing up, Marie is a Colorado native. Both our sons were born in Boulder, Colorado, and we live just a few minutes outside of Boulder today. We are your typical working class family, but one that decided that Maui was part of our future, so why not start now? Someday, Maui will be our forever home, but not yet... We look forward to having you stay in our home and learn to love Maui the way we do. Aloha!!

Marie purchased this condo in 2007

Why Marie chose South Maui

Maui Banyan was our second purchase on Maui, and we love, love, LOVE it's location. Maui Banyan has beautifully landscaped grounds, two terrific pools and even two hot tubs. You don't stop to think you will enjoy a hot tub at the end of the day on Maui, but you DO! The Aloha spirit is very evident at Maui Banyan, and makes it my favorite get-away on Maui! One of the other things I love about our condo at Maui Banyan is how QUIET the property is at night. I can sleep with the lanai doors open and enjoy being woken by the sounds of the birds in the morning. I love the sound of paradise!!

What makes this condo unique

Maui Banyan is across the street from one of the best beaches on the entire island, Kamaole II. It is also easy walking distance to several other terrific beaches and lots of shops, bars, and restaurants. It has the central location and Hawaiian feel that makes you feel instantly relaxed and on vacation. We have decorated our condo at Maui Banyan to feel tropical without feeling cliched. We hope to see you in Paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the use of the condo. It is very close to all our friends here at the Banyan. Will be back in 2014! Weather was great. All our friends especially enjoyed the look of yoru condo. Mahalo, and see you in two years!

The condo was perfect for us! It had everything we needed including all kinds of stuff for the beach. The linen closet was stuffed full of blankets, sheets and towels. The building was clean and quiet and the view from the balcony was pretty good!

I can't wait to go back!!

Great Location ,Great Price

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in Marie's Classic Kihei Condo residing in the Maui Banyan complex located in the south end of South Kihei Street

Firstly the building and grounds are meticulously maintained which I am sure is a daunting task considering the beautiful lawns ,flowering trees and plants everywhere .

The pool and hot tub area were once again spotless and a truly great place to absorb some of the famous Maui sunshine . As a bonus there are no less than 8 Weber Genesis II outdoor grills ( which I used almost every night ) for use by residents and guests.

Lastly the condo provided all that was required from a fully outfitted kitchen to the comfortable king bed with a large sliding door opening up to the deck and green space with so many birds and their associated chatter ...really outstanding waking up to those amazing sounds !

The unit is equipped with a washer and dryer which is so handy and truly allows guests to travel light ( I was able to fit everything I needed for a 2 week stay in Maui into a carry on bag !!)

The beautiful beach (a 3 minute walk ) right across the street from the complex and the many eating establishments and bars all in close proximity only adds to the reasons to stay here .

My wife and I highly recommend this unit and would not hesitate to return and do it all over again .

Thank you Marie well done !!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review! I really do appreciate when people take the time to let me know how I am doing! I think I may have been the guest right after you, and tackled many of my yearly projects. This year included new toilets in both bathrooms, all new towels, new sheets and quilt set for the King bed, among other projects. Mahalo for your feedback, and I hope to see you again!

Can't beat the location if you want the beach every day

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Maui Banyan. The condo has all the items you would need and then some. Plenty of kitchen wares for the cooking we did. Washer & dryer (really, pack less than you think you will need and just do a load of laundry). We were very surprised and happy to find the "beach toys" closet that had coolers, chairs, mats, boogie boards, beach towels and more for our fun in the sun time. It was about a two minute walk out the door and down the driveway to get to the beach and about 8-10 minute walk to get to some shopping and food. If you don't hit up Costco on your way in, there is a Safeway about 2.5 miles away.

If I had any issue at all, it's that the a/c is on a 4 hour timer. During the day that's not an issue as we were gone most of the time. During the night however, I would wake up when it got warm and would have to walk into the next room to turn the timer back on again. I totally understand why the timer is there, electricity on the islands is $$$, but wish it wasn't there. I also wish there was a/c in the bedroom but what can ya do?

We would happily stay here again the next time we are in Maui.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your stay and feedback! I, too, wish that the timer on the a/c wasn't necessary, but it is. Far too many people run the a/c 24/7, even with the lanai doors open, unless we provide some limits. My family is not a large corporation with bottomless pockets that can afford $500 electric bills. That said, I get it. I really do. I typically run the a/c when we go to bed, and almost always when it goes off, it is cool enough outside to open both the lanai doors and sleep with the cool, island breeze flowing through. That has the added benefit of allowing me to hear the island birds first thing in the morning. It is a fabulous way to wake up! Mahalo for being a guest and for giving your honest feedback. It truly does help us to be better hosts. Aloha!!

Car: recommended

Our condominium is located in Building H of Maui Banyan. The lanai faces South towards the upcountry mountains. The South-facing units overlook the courtyard, not the driveway and parking structure, making the location very quiet. The elevators make it very convenient to get in and out with your bags and groceries, as well as with all of your shopping finds!

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing
