This condominium is a great value for your vacation dollar. While staying in our unit you can relax on the lanai and enjoy an unobstructed ocean view. You will be centrally located on the island, have a five-minute walk to the beach, a ten-minute drive to the airport, and be close to shopping and restaurants. Banyan Harbor Resort has private swimming pool, barbecue, tennis courts, shuffleboard, and they are a two-minute walk from this unit.
The fully-equipped kitchen allows you to prepare everything from a simple breakfast, picnic lunch for the beach, or a full coarse meal. The 'in-condominium' washer /dryer provides the ability for you to 'pack light.' This was totally updated in January 2006.
We bought this property because the ocean view!!
Nicely appointed, centrally located, ocean view
I would leave a five star rating but there were just a few small issues that came up during my stay.
First the pros: This condo is conveniently located within a five minute drive to the airport. There is also many small shops and restaurants within walking distance. You get a beautiful view of the harbor and can watch the cruise ships come and go from the lanai. It was fantastic to have a kitchen, dishwasher, washer and dryer! We did minimal cooking, but there are ample kitchen supplies including pizza pan, coffee maker, and pots and pans. There are some beach supplies on the deck such as snorkel fins, chairs, boogie boards and bamboo mats. There is also a local mall within a 10 minute drive. There, you can find Costco, 2 supermarkets, many small restaurants and the best shaved ice at Uncle's.
The cons: (all minor issues)
Check in time was 4pm, but I tried to check in around noon. The room wasn't ready, so we did some sight seeing first. Returned around 3:50, but the room wasn't ready until 5:30.
The Wi fi went down and was a bit slow. Being on such a beautiful island, wasn't much of an issue during the daytime 😉
The lanai door can be difficult to open sometimes.
There is no central AC, and the 2 small units in the bedrooms can be a bit loud.
The larger bedroom has a bit of traffic noise, and you can't get away from the crowing roosters no matter where you go on the island. By the end of the trip, I barely noticed the noise.
Although the owner requests people take their shoes off before entering, it does appear that the carpets have managed to get a bit worn/stained.
Last, the dryer does seem to emit a lot of lint. Be sure to put some water in the small receptacle at the top to help alleviate some of the particles from flying in the air 👍𣐮
I would definitely refer others to stay here.
Amazing condo! Two floors, beautiful balcony over looking the ocean. Clean as can be! With two upstairs bedrooms, one with AC, two bathrooms in total. Laundry machine. Sleeper sofa. Nicely stocked kitchen. All centrally located in Lihue. What more can you ask for?
Barb's condo was more than expected. Sometimes Vrbo listings exaggerate the properties and can lead to disappointment. I this case it is exactly the opposite. The pics clearly show a beautifully modernized kitchen that did not disappoint and the appliances are top notch and worked perfectly. What the pics have a hard time giving a sense of are the miscellaneous appointments that make the difference between an Ok (or worse) place and the kind of place you really feel at home in. The furnishings and artworks are very high quality (much better than expected in a vacation condo rental. The electronics are modern and professionally mounted in a way that makes for optimal viewing in the kitchen, living room and master bedroom. Even the WIFI worked perfectly which is often not the case in vacation rentals. The beds were very comfortable (again often not the cast. From what I experienced, I assume that Barb must stay there often herself and that she furnishes and maintains the property as a place she wants to live. The primary reason we picked the condo was it's central location and we were not disappointed. an additional surprise was the closeness to the pool (only about 100+ feet away and much closer than most of the Banyan Harbor complex.
The local manager (Tivoli from Prosser Realty)nwas an absolute jewel the couple of times we needed something extra.
The pride that Barb takes in her property, combined with the great location and super responsive local management combine to make this a place I will stay on all future visits to Kauai.
To put this in perspective I have stayed in 6 other VRBO properties in the past and It's I prefer to remain silent when I have a negative experience and provide a review when I have a good one. This is the first time that I feel my experience has warranted a full and positive review.
The condo worked out perfectly for my husband and I. It's modern and clean, the kitchen was complete, living room and bedroom (and bed!) were comfy. We loved having the little deck to eat our breakfast on. We were grateful to have the bedroom room air conditioner since it felt much hotter in Hawaii than we expected. The in-unit washer and dryer were a big plus since we were in Kauai for 10 days. We would highly recommend this property.
Perfect location, close to shopping, beach, and main city. Clean condo with all you need. Kitchen has everything you need as well. Condo is located close to the pool. Pool area is clean with BarBQ grills for those hot summer days. Would highly recommend this unit. Best bang for your buck!
Barbi was terrific at responding to my emails with questions! We loved sitting on the balcony enjoying the fabulous view of the ocean. The condo was very clean, organized, and comfortable-- loved having a rice cooker, slow cooker and such a nice stovetop and fridge. The beds and sheets were very comfy!The owner definitely goes out of her way to make this a very special place to visit and the location is terrific with the beach only a block away.
The Kalapaki Bay in front of the Marriott, across the street and a 10 minute walk is a great place to learn padddle boardi
