About the property

Small Complex With Everything Oceanfront- Heated Pool and Hot Tub

OCEAN FRONT BEAUTY! Feast your palate with this ocean front condo in the heart of Kailua Kona's "surf city". Spectacular early morning + evening sunsets awaits.

HAWAII AT ITS BEST! From the privacy of the extra long lanai (exclusive to 1-3 units), you will enjoy the perfect vantage point for watching whales seasonally, spinning dolphins, turtles, surfers, sailboats, and listen to the crashing waves. The small Banyan Tree condo complex is located midway between Kailua Kona and Keauhou. The Banyan Tree is a small, well-kept complex with only 20 units so it never feels crowded. The property is located as close as you can get to the Pacific Ocean. In fact new construction is no longer allowed to be as close to the ocean as Banyan Tree. The heated, ocean front pool has mesmerizing views and plenty of comfortable lounge chairs. Barbecue grills and a hot tub are also poolside. A spacious veranda next to the unit offers amazing views and larger tables for entertaining. Directly next door is a small, sandy beach which is a perfect entry for surfing, boogie boarding and paddle boarding.

Banyan Tree is centrally located on the sunny side of the Big Island in Kailua-Kona. Top rated restaurants like the Poke Shack and local farmers markets are minutes away. Downtown Kona, with galleries and shops is less than three miles. Alii drive, which is great for ocean walks, is right out the back door. Ready for the beach? Magic Sands Beach is less than a mile away. Kahalu'u Beach is only two miles and has easy snorkeling where you can get up-close to beautiful reefs and abundant sea life. It's also a perfect place to learn to surf. Postcard perfect beaches such as Hapuna Beach and Kua Bay are to the north and Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park and Captain Cooks monument lie to the south. Since Banyan Tree is located about halfway up the coast you can drive to either end of the island in about 30 minutes. When you're done just park in your designated parking stall and take the elevator steps away to your retreat!

This is an ocean lover's dream, we hope you visit soon!

Remodeled kitchen, Full size washer/dryer, Free Wifi, beach chairs/boogie boards.

Easy walk from the car to front door - NO STAIRS to hassle with. Security keyed elevator for your convenience and safety. What more can you ask for.

2nd floor offers a wonderful ocean breeze + newly installed Solar blinds keeps the condo cooler during the summer months.

Best location, off Alii drive.

Convenience store across the street for extra ice/spirits/newspaper, etc.

Excellent location, amazing views!

  • 4 of 5

Loved my recent stay at Banyan Tree! The location is super close to Kona town, but far enough away to offer peace and quiet, out of the tourist bustle. Plus, you are right next door to the Poke Shack! The lanai is basically almost on the ocean, loved seeing the blues of the water change as the sun rose. Surfers daily and amazing sunsets too! Condo was comfortable and had everything I needed. Appreciated the option of table seating or rocking chairs on the lanai. The covered parking is a bonus, such a treat to get a car that is not blazing hot. Dawn was very attentive checking with me to make sure arrival was smooth, and was available to offer suggestions as needed for recreation, I really loved that personal connection. The only reason for 4 vs 5 stars- I run hot, so I was highly dependent on fans while there. An A/C option, even a portable unit would have earned the fifth star. Overall, a great find.

Owner's Response: Betsy, Thank you for such a nice review. We have debated adding A/C but feel our unit with the double wide Lanai brings in the breeze needed to keep the condo cool. Kona was hotter than usual during your stay so continue to debate adding the A/C for these rare occations. Mahalo

Great location, lovely condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Banyan Tree. The condo is right on the water with beautiful views. Condo unit had everything you need (lots of beach towels, beach chairs, cleaning supplies,...) The lack of AC does take getting used to, but we were really only hot one evening. The nearby veranda is everything the owner described. We ate dinner and played board games all alone enjoying the breeze. Close to the heart of Kona but away from the downtown noise.

An Oceanfront Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I just returned from a week at this property and loved every minute! It is exactly as advertised. The condo is steps from the water, providing awesome views of turtles and surfers, as well as daily sunrises and sunsets from the balcony. It is close to town with shops and restaurants minutes away. The Banyan Tree is a small complex with an elevator and covered parking onsite....all welcome amenities! The unit is nicely furnished and well stocked with all the conveniences of home. We will definitely be returning to this hidden gem for our next Kona visit😎

Heavenly view and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The location allowed us to easily visit spots north and south. The view, lanai, and proximity to the ocean made it all the more special. Well appointed with everything you would need. Don't hesitate to stay at this lovely property.

Property was clean but old except for kitchen and bathrooms updated. Beautiful view from lanai!

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience was great! Thanks for having a complete kitchen with all the amenities! Loved the quietness, peacefulness and cleaniness of the property. Could use a few more fans! Some observations though there was a crack in the ceiling in master bath, holes in screen door, holes in tile on lanai. Overall we would definitely come and stay here again!

Beautiful view, great location-loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about this condo! The unit was very spacious and had everything we could need and then some. Having a washer and dryer made it even better. The complex was small which made our stay even nicer. Beautiful views and the sounds of the ocean were perfect! We cannot wait to stay here again :)
