This unit is on the ground floor. We also have a one bedroom unit in "G" building Both our condos have a lovely tropical view with palm trees and Hawaiian flowers plus tasteful decor for an island-style experience. Unique to this "G" building Maui Banyan studio condo is a washer/dryer - it is the only studio condo at Maui Banyan that has one.

We personally manage all our own units and we live minutes away so if you need anything while you are here on lovely Maui, we can help. This way, we also get to inspect our condos regularly to make sure they are not only very clean but everything is in working order. Being an on-island owner is a huge plus. We hope to have you as our guests!

Tastefully decorated, clean and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need for home base during your stay on Maui!

Tastefully decorated, clean and well equipped. Comfortable bed and seating. Across the road, less than 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach and a short drive to several others. I would highly recommend this unit and would stay here agaon. Very sad to be checking out today and heading home.

The property is beautiful & so close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable. Our room was clean & inviting. We didn't want for a thing. The only downside was people monopolizing the pool on the weekend. These weren't paying guests or residents they were friends of the people that work there. It wasn't that they were there it was that they didn't have to follow the rules. Running, jumping, eating & drinking (alcohol) in the pool. We called security & he did nothing! Rules should be followed by ALL!

Great! Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay for a small party. The condo is fully stacked with a small kitchen, washer/dryer, beach chairs, etc. We stayed here for 10 days and had no complaints at all. Perfect for me and my husband on our vacation here in Maui. Walking distance to several great restaurants and across the street from the beach.

It was nice for the price

  • 3 of 5

For the price it was very nice. When I first got there the room was not completely cleaned. I did like that it was close to the beach. My view was the parking lot.

Owner's Response: Aloha Pamela, Thank you for your feedback. I do apologize for the lack of current greenery that usually covers up the parking area. The hedge needed to be taken down as it was diseased. A new hedge has been planted and hopefully it will grow quickly as most plants do here in the tropics. It so happens that I personally did a deep clean in the condo before you arrived (living on the island ourselves allow us to be very hands on) and you must have tried to check-in before the 3PM check in time. We do ask our guests to call us first if they would like to check in any earlier than 3PM. Often we need the time until 3PM in order to make sure the condo is 100% cleaned and prepared for your arrival. Mahalo, Tamara and Steve

Clean. Close to restaurants. Walking distance to beach. Nice sunset view.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this condo. Had everything we needed. For your washing needs there's a washer and dryer with detergent and dryer sheets. There's an ironing board and iron as well. For your beach comfort this room had a beach umbrella, beach towels, beach chairs and noodles. For your cooking needs there's a blender, electric burner, coffee maker, plates, mugs, bowls, glasses, goblets, some spices, pot and pans, conventional oven, microwave, mini refrigerator, silverware and utensils, plastic bags and wrap and other serving bowls. There's a hairdryer, curly iron and cleaning supplies as well. Nice area in the patio to sit and relax. We grilled several times in the pool area. Very nice and clean grills you can use anytime. It has a flat screen television, blanket, and several books you can choose to read. We sent text messages to Steve and Tamara and they responded quickly. Very quiet area.

Perfect little home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it here. Steve and Tamara really put so much effort into every detail that they had put into this condo. It was also very very clean when we arrived, and had absolutely everything you needed for a perfect stay in Maui. We loved it so much we found ourselves coming back with a red box or sitting outside the patio for dinner. Definitely relaxing! However, the times we did leave, we found everything to be right where you need it. Most places were only 30 min a way at the most, considering you were trying to go to the other sides of the island. There were so many food trucks and restaurants either walking distance or a few minutes drive. The beach was the best part! One right across and two others next to that. We found ourselves walking over for a swim every morning before our planned activities. When we come back, we will definitely be staying here again! Thank you so much for such a great place!
