About the property

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Come and stay in our lovely studio condominium at the popular Maui Banyan Resort - aaffordable yet have all you could possibly need and more. This condo is in "G" building which is close to the beach but not right on South Kihei road. We also have a one bedroom condo in "G" building. There is a lovely tropical view with palm trees and Hawaiian flowers plus tasteful decor for an island-style experience. Unique to this "G" building Maui Banyan studio condo is a washer/dryer - it is the only studio condo at Maui Banyan that has one.

Our Maui Banyan condos are the closest rentals we have to the beach. It's a short walk through the lush tropical gardens to Kamaole Beach II, a gorgeous white sand beach great for boogie-boarding, surfing, snorkeling or swimming.

Maui Banyan has been said to be a fantastic complex for its location, friendly staff and quality facilities. The number one drawback according to guests has been its outdated decor and furnishings. As Steve and Tamara personally manage their units and want to provide a superior experience for their guests at a competitive rate, we have completely updated this unit.

You can also be assured your accommodations will be clean and comfortable. Live the easy island life -enjoy the spectacular Maui sunsets oceanfront across from this great resort.

Great,simple, affordable accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Maui banyan 204A. The studio was just perfect for my boyfriend and I for our four days in Maui. We loved having a fridge so we could grab few groceries to have on hand, but went out and tried some of the local restaurants around the island :)

Bed was super comfortable, loved the balcony, and nice renoed bathroom. Steve and Tamara were always helpful, and easy to contact if needed.

Thanks Steve and Tamara for the lovely accommodations and for making our last minute booking smooth and simple! Would recommend to anyway and we will be back!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was perfect for my boyfriend and I. It is a few minutes walk to the beautiful Kamaole beach and it has plenty of great restaurants near by, as well as convenient stores. The room is neat and clean and is equipped with things we needed for our 10-day stay. We appreciated the beach chairs and small cooler provided by Steve and Tamara. The cooler came in especially handy when we went on the road to Hana and hiked the Haleakala. We brought some light groceries for breakfast (the size of the fridge was perfect) and ate out for dinner - spending most of days out exploring different beaches and cool places. The studio is located at a convenient location making our longest drive to different destinations just 2-hours (and that was to road to Hana). Steve and Tamara were easily contacted when we needed new linens mid-way through our stay. We highly recommend Steve and Tamara's studio to anyone looking for a stay in Maui!!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Steve and Tamara's studio condo. It was just as the ad described. The condo is well equipped and the short walk to the beach along flowering bushes was great. Enjoyed sitting on the little balcony listening to the birds. Thanks to Steve and Tamara for the little welcome gifts...they were greatly appreciated.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in Steve and Tamara's studio condo. It was perfect for the two of us - the kitchenette was equipped with what a couple might need for a light breakfast, a morning coffee, keeping beverages cold, reheating leftovers, etc. We regularly made use of the beach chairs, towels and umbrella provided by the owners. The location is great - only a few steps from one of two quiet and well maintained pool areas (equipped with great loungers, very clean washrooms and BBQs). The beach was a short walk away as were plenty of restaurant options. Kihei is a great jumping off point to anywhere on the island. We hope to return one day soon!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st stay in one of Steve and Tamara's rentals. We were more than happy with the location with the beach, shops and restaurants being within walking distance. The unit was very adequately stocked with everything we would need. The pool was very close to our unit which was great. We took advantage of the Kihea boat dock being very close by and went whale watching and snorkelling. We have already booked for next year!

Amazing studio in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in one of Steve and Tamara's vacation rentals. It was very clean, comfortable and in a great location. Right across the street from the beach, and only a walk away to restaurants and shops. We also love that the G building is so close to the pool. It is a perfect vacation rental and we cannot recommend this unit enough!

Thank you for another wonderful stay and we can't wait to be back in Maui again!
