Four generations of the island-based Black family have owned and loved this special oasis by the sea, presided over by the oldest and largest banyan tree in Puako. The family’s handiwork is present in the ocean-side groves of coconut palms soaring 15 to 35 feet high: on the right are palms named and planted by individual family members, many as young children, or in honor of special friends; on the left, special events are marked by a separate grove. Together, the palms frame sunsets and the neighboring island of Maui, dominated by the 10,000-foot-high mountain of Haleakala.
The property was chosen by the family matriarch in the early 1950s for its location along some of the best tidal pools in Puako, where children can swim, fish and play, protected by a perimeter of ancient lava flows. The adjacent “Big Rock” rises above the pools, setting the stage for social gatherings and sunset watching. Turtles come to call daily, feeding on the seaweed at the Big Rock’s edge. In the winter, humpback whales pass by, 100-plus yards offshore, cavorting with their young. With the constant sea breezes, the rustling coconut palms and waves provide a natural rhythm of music to this idyllic setting.

Ten Days in Paradise
Our family (two couples and one two year old) just enjoyed ten days at Beach Banyan, truly a paradise house and location. First of all, the house has everything we needed and more, from kitchen and all household amenities, to needed beach items like chairs and boogie boards. Every room is oriented towards the million dollar view. Snorkeling is right off the rocks right in front. You can walk to nearby hotels. The large lawn is great for kids and adults too.
A huge new BBQ is steps from the kitchen. Puako is a great neighborhood, quiet but convenient, with a small nearby store for last minute needs and just a couple of miles from a large grocery store. It's our third time staying in Puako and we love it. Beach Banyan is about as perfect as it gets. The rental agents make everything easy too.
The Ideal Retreat for Our Three Generations of Family! We are in LOVE!
"Wow...what a treasure we stumbled upon. From toddler to grandma EVERYone in our three generations of family simply adored this sweet Beach Banyan hideaway! We stayed a week and ended up throwing half our travel/adventure plans out the window preferring instead to rest, read, cook, eat, sunbathe, converse, play, explore, and snorkel all from the comfort of our private and beautiful home away from home! The beachfront property with lava rock tide pools and sand for little ones to play in was ideal. The birds, mongooses, geckos, coconut palms, flowers, fish, tide pool invertebrates, and sea turtles made it seem like our own private slice of untouched nature. Beach gear including toys, cooler, chairs, snorkel gear, towels, and umbrella were all provided. A constant gentle breeze through the screen doors and windows along with the ever present sound of crashing waves made for seven of the best nights of sleep we can remember. The breeze also kept the house nicely cool even during the hottest parts of the day.The house was clean, sweetly decorated, incredibly well stocked, and all communication and logistics were as smooth as we could have wished. We quite literally did not want to leave. So much gratitude to 2 Papayas and to the family for sharing their little piece of paradise. Mahalo! We'll be back!"

Perfect Big Island vacation
We loved this house and its absolutely beautiful setting! The house was perfectly located, right on the ocean with lots of big lounge chairs on a big lawn leading to the ocean, a hammock, comfortable, attractive furnishingsinside, a very well-equipped kitchen, and beautiful, airy bedrooms overlooking the ocean. We rented the little house in the back, too, which was also really nice with a great view. No need to go any further than just out front for amazing snorkeling. The staff was very accommodating to our needs which was very much appreciated. We will be back!
