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.

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 :)

quiet, updated and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay here while visiting from Oahu. The condo was clean and well furnished. Just to be aware the Master is part of the open floor plan but can be enclosed with sliding doors. Not an issue, however some might need to know this. I would recommend this condo to others and would stay again.

I've stayed in several condos on the Big Island and other Hawaiian islands and this property is one of the overall bests that I've stayed in. The location is nice and quiet and there is a small market across the street if you need anything. The condo itself was clean and modern and the kitchen was nicely stocked. We had everything we needed. The view out the lanai is the best I've had. You're right on the water and you get to go to sleep each night with the sound of the surf. In fact, the surf can be so loud that we couldn't keep the patio door open and watch TV. Right outside the lanai is one of the best surfing location on the Big Island, that's what I've been told. Every day there were surfers to watch. We also saw several sea turtles. About the only complaint I have is that the lanai is a bit small, while it does go completely across the condo, it is only 5 feet wide. Since there was only 3 of us, we didn't have any problems pulling up an extra bar stool to the small table when we had dinner, but if there had been 4 of us, it would have been pretty crowded. Overall, a great value for the money and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your nice review. Next time you come there is a large veranda next to my unit that is ocean front and offers large round tables to enjoy nice oceanfront dinners with lots of room. We use it like it is our private Veranda, no one else uses it since it is only convenient for my unit. I bought my unit because of being next to this large beautiful oceanfront Veranda.
