Don't miss out on our newly remodeled 1 br, 2ba unit directly across the street from one of Maui's best family beaches, Kamaole 2.
Our unit has recently undergone a facelift with remodeled kitchens and bathrooms, new full sized washer and dryer, new painting and drapes. The kitchen boasts new appliances, kitchen ware and small appliances.
We are located in building G/H, which houses the registration and concierge desks. An elevator takes you to the second floor, and a luggage cart is handy for use while you unpack your car directly in front of the building. We have our own designated parking space directly across the driveway from the office in a large parking garage.
A king sized bed sleeps two comfortably, and a pull out sofa couch can accommodate two more. Two bathrooms keeps everyone from running over the top of one another, and the kitchen island and dining table combined with the lanai table provide plenty of seating options for everyone. We have gone out of our way to ensure that everything you need to cook or grill your meals is on hand, and have a book of our favorite places on the Island to give you suggestions on great off-property dining and activities.
The Maui Banyan complex is located within walking distance of great food, ranging from coffee and plate lunches to waterfront fine dining. Groceries, wine, and spirits can be purchased at the Whaler in the neighboring Rainbow Mall, where you can also find Kihei Aloha Ice Cream & Yogurt and the famous Cinnamon Roll Fair. Natural and organic foods can be found three blocks north, next to Maui Tacos and Snorkel Bob's. Great snorkeling and swimming can be had just across the street at Kamaole Beach II, but more adventuresome types can rent kayaks and stand up paddleboards a block away. Maui Dive Shop is located nearby, and great beach dives can be found within a 10 minute drive. Surfing and paddleboard lessons, as well as a children's park are both located a mile north at Kalama Park.
Just a 5 minute drive south of the complex is Wailea, with fine dining, golfing, beaches, and shopping.
For visitors wanting to go on one of the many whale watching excursions, Maalea Harbor is about 30 minutes away. Maalea is also where you can find the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium and family fun park with mini golf and bumper boats.
For groceries, most visitors will probably stop at the Costco which is right next to the Kahalui airport for major staples. Whole Foods has recently moved into Kahalui, and Safeway and Foodland are both a quick drive away for day to day needs.
We enjoy making a road trip to Lahaina, which is about 45 minutes away. Other day trips include the famous Road to Hana, heading up to the Haleakala Volcano, checking out Paia, or visiting the Iao Needle near Wailuku.

About Richard Tuott
We are retired schoolteachers and commercial fishermen from Alaska who have been coming to Maui for almost 30 years. After our third snowstorm in the month of April, we decided that coming to Maui every February wasn't going to be enough to keep us warm, so we decided to buy a condo in our favorite home away from home!
Richard Tuott purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Richard Tuott chose Kihei
We have been coming to Kihei since 1988, and after staying in many of the different condo complexes up and down the beach, we found the perfect place to relax at the Maui Banyan. The grounds are well maintained, people are extremely friendly, and the location directly across from Kamaole Beach II all combine to make the Maui Banyan ideal for family vacations. Our grandchildren, ages 7 and 6, love Kamaole Beach because of it's gentle slope and kid-friendly waves, and the grounds at the Maui Banyan are great to chase geckos and lizards. They've also fallen in love with the incredible cinnamon rolls in the morning and night time ice cream cones that can be found at the neighboring Rainbow Mall a short walk away.

First class condo
Spacious, clean, well stocked and nicely furnished. Great view from the Lanai of gardens and the Volcano. Two pools, hot tubs and grills. After sightseeing all day, most nights we enjoyed eating in simple meals which was relaxing. Would love to return someday. Richard was very helpful with his tips and welcoming when we arrived. Our flight was possibly to be canceled and we were able to stay one more night if needed. If we don’t return in the near future it’s just the long flights from Boston. We loved it. Aloha!
Beautifully updated condo unit within walking beach access and a responsive & caring owner
The condo home is beautifully equipped, stocked and maintained and in a very desirable location with easy walking access to the beach. Very nice appliances, kitchen and bathroom counter tops are gorgeous. Nice bathrooms and showers. The attention to detail -- from the welcome folder filled with useful check in and local Maui information, comfy bed, sheets and towels, the Dove bathing gel, Lubriderm lotion, snorkeling gear, beach chairs and quality beach umbrella, beach toys (which our toddler loved), sunscreen, aloe, washer/dryer, laundry soap, even the quality toilet paper -- was much appreciated. We felt right at home, comfortable, safe, and clean. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive prior to our trip. Even the welcome phone call after our check in was much appreciated. We wish we had more days to enjoy the lovely home and Maui. We hope to be back one day. We highly recommend this unit. Aloha!
Than you very much for your review of our unit. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.
Excellent vacation condo
We have been vacationing at the Banyan for many years. This unit is our new favourite one bedroom.
This unit is very clean and fresh. It shows meticulous attention to detail. Our favourite features: tile floors throughout, nice appliances and furniture, the expanded lanai, great location, and everything you might need for the beach. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend to any friends or family. Thanks Richard for a great vacation.
Thank you for your positive comments about our unit. We appreciate the fact that you were pleased with what we provided for our guests. We would love to host you again in the future.
Perfect in every way!!!
Family of 4 with kids ages 9 and 13 stayed here from July 12 - July 17. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer. We loved Maui and this location. The condo itself was roomy and perfect for us. This was our first time booking with VRBO and Richard was a gracious host who answered all of our questions in a timely manner and went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was a good one. Richard provided us with advice on where to eat, which beaches to go to, where to find sea turtles, and more. All of his suggestions were spot on and much appreciated. The condo itself is in a perfect location. The Kam II beach across the road is fantastic. We loved having the beach toys, chairs, etc. and put them to good use. The property is well maintained and we even met some very nice residents at the pool who we enjoyed chatting with. The view from the balcony is peaceful and lovely and everything in the condo is comfortable and in perfect condition. The Washer/Dryer combo was great to have as well. I would give this more stars if I could - would absolutely stay here again if we are lucky enough to return.
Perfect place in Kehei!
We are a family of 4 (2 young boys) and this place was a great fit! Close to the beach, can walk to dinner, & get great shave ice. We truly enjoyed our time and would love to stay again soon!
Beautiful condo, owners are the best!
Our first trip to Maui was amazing, thank you Rich and Peg! We had never used vrbo, but Rich not only took the time to explain the process to us, he answered any question (and I asked several) without hesitation. The condo is beautiful, stocked with everything you would have at home, and need for Maui, beach chairs, cooler bags, fully stocked kitchen and the list goes on. The condo is a 5 minute walk from the beach, shopping, eating, very convenient location. Rich stayed in contact with us throughout our planning and even made sure we made it safely. We can not say enough kind things about Rich and Peg, you are a big reason our vacation was so enjoyable! We will definitely return! Thank you!
Thank you for the kind review. We are glad that you enjoyed your vacation to Maui and hope to host you again in the future. Thanks again.
Rich and Peg
We love snorkeling the reefs at nearby Kamaole beaches 2 and 3. There is a wonderful variety of fish, and turtles and eels are often seen. The coral formations are fantastic. Walking the beach at sunset allows opportunity to view Maui's amazing sunset. We often visit the little town of Makawao which has wonderful galleries and quaint restaurants. An early visit to the general store might reward you with delicious cream puffs, a delicacy that is highly sought after. A stop at Sherry Reeve's gallery usually finds the artist in residence and at work on her latest project. You will be sure to find a lovely souvenier of your Maui stay. You will also have an opportunity to watch glass blowing at the glass shop down the street. Further down the road is the interesting and historic town of Paia with more shops and good food available. Near Paia on the road to Hana is Hookipa beach where you can watch the surfers and wind surfers tackle the breathtaking waves.
