*** AUGUST CANCELLATION GIVES YOU OPPORTUNITY TO STAY AT THE PENTHOUSE! CHECK OUR CALENDAR FOR DATES! *** Banyan Tree Penthouse Condo 402 is a spacious, ocean front condo with an ocean view that will leave you breathless. Located on the quiet 4th floor, penthouse level yet so close to the water that you can actually look down and see tropical fish like the yellow tang! Sea turtles, spinner dolphins, humpback whales (when in season) and surfers often entertain you by day and the surf will lull you to sleep each night. The living room features floor to ceiling windows that look as though the ocean is coming inside! The private, tiled lanai is the perfect place to enjoy your coffee in the morning or to have a cocktail and watch a picture perfect sunset in the evening.

Inside you’ll find all the comforts of home. The oceanfront master bedroom has a comfy king bed and the second bedroom a queen and twin so the unit comfortably sleeps five. The fully stocked kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to make meals or prepare for the perfect "sunset happy hour"! Enjoy two flat screen TV’s with over 200 channels, a DVD library, Bluetooth speaker for your tunes and free WiFi. Beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, coolers and an umbrella are supplied for your beach days. Pack fewer clothes for your trip if you like because of the new full size Maytag washer and dryer. Air conditioning is throughout the condo to keep you cool on those warmer Kona days!

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 on the second floor with amazing views is available to all Banyan Tree guests for entertaining. Directly next door is a small, sandy beach where the locals access the Banyan Surf site, a famed stretch of water in front of the condo known for fantastic surfing and boogie 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. Historic 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 great 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. Also to the south is Two Step Beach, located near Pu’u Honua O Honaunau National Historic Park, which is a perfect snorkeling spot to explore the crystal clear waters of Kona’s coast. Since Banyan Tree is located about halfway up the Kona coast you can easily drive to either end of the island. When you're done just park in your designated parking stall and take the elevator to your penthouse retreat!

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

About Kim & Jon Bourgain

We are the Bourgain's from Littleton, Colorado and welcome to our "happy place"! We have been traveling to the Hawaiian islands for over 20 years. After spending time on all the islands we decided the Big Island was our favorite! It seems more laid back and to us more like we envision 'old Hawaii' When we take a beach vacation we always try to find properties where we can see the ocean from our condo and the pool. When we saw Banyan Tree it was the perfect fit!

Kim & Jon Bourgain purchased this condo in 2016

Why Kim & Jon Bourgain chose Kona Coast

We stayed at the Banyan Tree condos and were blown away by the views, the proximity to the ocean and how private it was. We also liked how it is centrally located on the Kona coast so it doesn't take long to go to the north or south end of the island. It's also right in the middle of many of the best restaurants, markets and shopping on the island. Now that we own Banyan Tree #402 we can honestly say we are even more impressed by the attention to detail that is paid to maintain and improve the property for the benefit of the guests.

What makes this condo unique

Direct Ocean Front. You simply can't stay any closer to the ocean. You won't find a beautiful pool any closer to the ocean. This is an ocean lover's paradise!

First time on the big island.

  • 5 of 5

We had great stay. This a very well equipped condo right on the ocean. Right on the Bamyan break, so we watched surfers every day. The only suggestion would be a room air conditioner for the back bedroom. The fans were ok, it was still very warm.

Great location, great view, great stay.

Owner's Response: Aloha Meredith! Thank you for taking time to write a review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We also love watching the surfers right behind the condo. So fun!! Yes, the condo can get warm on days without trade winds so we are excited to announce that air-conditioning is currently being installed!! We are also updating the bathrooms, installing new curtains, and replacing the interior doors!! We would love for you to come back some day and stay in our air-conditioned, newly updated condo!! Much Mahalo! Jon and Kim

Stunning views! The ocean right outside the door!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was spectacular need to tidy all the amenities you could ask for! The owners have really gone all out to decorate and accessorize the condo it's so relaxing and comfortable you feel like you are at home! Other than having no Air conditioning there are a lot of fans to keep it cool but the air conditioning as we understand it is on its way ! The pool was a wonderful way to wind down the day if you had been out shopping in touring the town rather than going to the beach - we travelled here with our five-year-old son and there was lots for him to do We would recommend is this vacation spot to anyone looking to get away ! Kona is a wonderful little seaside town with plenty of shopping and amenities lots to see lots to take in and the locals are very friendly and helpful - renting a car was a definite bonus because of the distance from the condo into the hub of downtown Kona - The Kona trolly will get you around town as well but it's a long ride if you're not expecting it - Scandinavian Shave Ice is a must go to spot! International marketplace there was hardly any shops left maybe worth the trip but don't expect much there are plenty of other roadside farmers markets if you can attend to that you can attend snd that have plenty to offer - One thing I would've preferred is a later check out because our flight doesn't leave until 10 PM we had to do a bit of scrambling to make the rest of our trip so if you are planning on staying here just remember check out is 11 am sharp ! Kim and Jon, thanks for the wonderful memories!

great ocean front condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this condo. Great views of the Ocean from the living room window and balcony where you can actually see fish, turtles, and dolphins swimming in the water below. There is great surfing and body boarding directly in front of the condo. With easy access to sandy beaches and downtown Kona, this was a ideal location. The owners are very attentive and want to ensure you have a great stay. We would definitely consider coming back here again!

Owner's Response: Aloha Sean and family! Thank you for the kind review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! We too enjoy watching the marine life from the condo and lanai. It's hard to believe you can actually see the fish swimming in the water from the condo until you experience it. It truly is magical!! We look forward to your return trip! Malaho, Jon and Kim

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at The Banyan Tree #402 - the view from the lanai just cannot be beat. Watching the surfers right from the lanai was so fun. The decor is so beautifully done, every time I turned a corner I'd see another piece of art that I loved. The kitchen was well equipped and the furniture and beds were comfortable. There are plenty of beach chairs and beach towels provided, as well as a beach umbrella and some boogie boards. The location was great - close enough to town and several great restaurants. Try the BBQ ribs they mention in their welcome book. Fantastic! We loved it so much, we've already told friends about it who plan to visit the island, and if we go to the Big Island again, we will definitely stay there again. Thank you so much, Kim!

Owner's Response: Much Aloha for the review Barb! I'm so glad you and your husband enjoyed your stay! We too pick up a rib meal at least once every time we visit the island. Yum! Thank you for noticing the art in the condo. We put a lot of thought and time into the furnishings and decorations hoping to create a tropical, colorful and happy experience. We look forward to your next stay! Mahalo, Kim and Jon

Historic Alii Drive is out the back door and great for an ocean walk. Ready for the beach? Magic Sands beach is less than a mile away. Kahalu'u Beach is only two miles and is an easy to access snorkeling spot where you can get up-close to beautiful reefs and abundant sea life. It's also a friendly 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. Also to the south is Two Step Beach, which is located just north of Pu’u Honua O Honaunau National Historic Park, which is a perfect snorkeling spot to explore the crystal clear waters of Kona’s coast. Please your palate with lots of great dining options. The famous Da Poke Shack is within a block and within a few miles there are tasty restaurants including including Jackie Reys, Splashers Grill, Island Lava Java, TJ's Barbecue and the Fish Hopper. KTA Supermarket is only a few miles south on Alii Drive in Keauhou. Snorkel Bob's, an easy place to rent your snorkel gear, is also just a few miles down the road.
