It's a short walk through the lovely tropical gardens to Kamaole Beach II, a gorgeous white sand beach great for boogie-boarding, surfing, snorkeling or swimming. Enjoy the spectacular Maui sunsets oceanfront across from this great resort.

Maui Banyan is walking distance to shopping and fantastic restaurants. Maui is also known for its excellent windsurfing and various water sports.

Our own family loves it here and stays two months a year. The care and attention put into these condos for our family to be comfortable is apparent. We hope others will treat them as their own.

This is a great place to stay on Maui!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this condo for 6 nights. What a great choice we made!

This condo is very spacious, nicely decorated and in a great location.

The bed is very comfortable. We slept great every night. The pool/jacuzzi area is just steps away. So, getting to this area takes a minute. It's very convenient to get back to this unit when you're done swimming.

Even though this unit is close to the pool area, we heard no one. It's VERY quiet during the day and night.

We didn't meet Tamara, but we did meet Steve. He's a great host! He's very communicative, helpful and a very nice person.

He even installed a brand new air conditioning unit for us because he discovered that the old unit stopped working. He didn't want us to be uncomfortable.

The kitchen has everything that you'll need to cook, make coffee and store food.

The shower has constant hot water and worked great.

We will definitely be back to stay at this unit when we come back to Maui.

Just a couple of restaurant recommendations for dining in Kihei. Cuatro Restaurant in the Foodland shopping plaza is great! Everything is fresh and very tasty. It's a BYOB place. Just a $10 corkage fee.

Another great place is The Paia Fish Market. Nothing fancy, but VERY yummy fresh fish. Highly recommended. Mahalo!

Convenient Location Excellent Condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on beautiful Maui and this condo suited our needs perfectly. The location of the condo is very convenient with lots of free parking nearby. The condo is nicely furnished and we appreciated the lovely new appliances which were clean and easy to use. The king size bed was very comfortable. The condo is located across the street from a lovely, sandy, safe swimming beach but far enough from the street that we did not hear road noise and it was very quiet at night. Although we did not use the pool it is just steps away from the condo. Barbecues are new, always clean and conveniently located near the condo. The kitchen was stocked with all the utensils we needed. There are numerous restaurants and convenience stores within easy walking distance. The property was clean and well maintained. The owners were easy to communicate with. We would definitely stay in this condo again and would highly recommend this unit to family and friends.
