Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! 5 Stars!! Your condo is wonderful. I don't know how we will be able to sleep back in ATL. without the sound of the waves! "The Sunset" We've never seen a ore beautiful 'sunset'...thank you for doing all the little extra's to make our vacation AWSOME! The beach chairs, towels, boogi boards (oh boy..the girls loved those), all the cooking utensils a person could ever need! We used the Hawaii Big Island Revealed 4th Edition you recommended everywhere we went! Loved the comments and info you adde. We've stayed in condo's before, but yours by far has the beat. Most condo's will only hold a family of 4 and you've set your's up to hold more comfortably & I have to brag on the resident manager who showed us our first turtle! Thank you sooo much for the 5 star Stay!

Great ocean view

  • 5 of 5

The Banyan Tree condo was just as described. We watched the surfers while having coffee or wine on the lanai or just sat and enjoyed the wonderful view. The condo has everything one would need for the beach: chairs, boogie boards, snorkels, fins, towels,etc.. The kitchen also well supplied-we wanted for nothing. The complex is small, thus quiet. We were approximately 2 miles from downtown Kona-a nice walk. The owners are quick to reply to any of your questions. We would definitely recommend this condo.

Big, clean, bright and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here a little over a week in Jan. The place had everything we needed or or could want for meal and beach times. What a great view. The bed was very comfortable and only ocean sounds from the main bedroom area. I would recommend to other couples and stay here again.

The place was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the view and the condo as a whole! To have practically everything stocked was great! We left maple syrup behind for the next renters and restocked what we used a lot of too. It has one actual bedroom with a door and the other bedroom uses ceiling to floor sliding doors to create the second room. The location was really great for us and convenient to a lot of great restaurants and shops. The owners leave awesome recommendations in the room to reference too and which was extremely useful too! The hot tub was nice but the view from the lanai was amazing! I would recommend this place for anyone wanting to stay in the Kailua-Kona area. Thank you for having a great place to rent for our family vacation!

Banyon Tree week

  • 5 of 5

Condo is beatifully decorated with island decor and a view to die for .

Plenty of anything you could possibly want from boogie boards , beach towels, snorkeling gear to cooking utensils, dishes , pots and pans .

The only thing lacking was a hair dryer in second bathroom. Other than that a perfect condo to stay in. . Wishing our second week on the island was here as well!

Perfect Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

The oceanfront view from the condo is spectacular! Falling asleep each night to the sounding the waves made for a perfect nights sleep. The condo is immaculatly clean and very comfortable. Kitchen is fully stocked with anything you'd need to prepare a meal, you just supply the food. It's location is great, close to lots of delicious restaurants (try the privateers). We brought books to read, but never opened. From the lani, watching the waves, turtles and fish swim by, and enjoying the surfers, won out over our books. Parking in our reserved spot was handy. The sparkling clean pool overlooking the rocks and ocean was great for a refreshing dip in the evening. This condo is a gem and you will not be disappointed when you stay here.
