  • Aloha

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Lovely view of the ocean and sunset from the back deck. Close to good snorkling beaches, restaurants and grocery stores, scenic sights. Loved being able to participate in out-rigger canoeing at the harbor ! The front desk staff was very helpful when my friend's delayed luggage arrived. We had a very relaxing time and good weather the 2nd week in April ! (Had trouble with the lock box on the front door of the unit which held the door key-- perhaps too much salt air -- eventually the lock box would not open with the proper combination of numbers used)"

  • Beautiful Condo with Amazing Ocean Views!

    "We enjoyed our stay at the Banyan Tree #302. The condo is beautiful decorated and has breathtaking views of the ocean. The condo was well stocked and had everything we needed from kitchen supplies to beach gear - towels, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, and chairs. The tips from Janice and Robert on things to do and places to eat were so helpful. I loved the Big Island Revealed book. So many great tips and advice. The Banyan Tree was very conveniently located for our excursions going north and south along the coast. We enjoyed watching the surfers. We attempted to ride the waves but be warned it is pretty rough out there. If you go out make sure to use the stairs. We went out by the small sandy beach and got caught by the rocks. We saw turtles which was a treat! The only negative is that when we were there it was humid. Even with the windows open and the fans on it would get a little stuffy when we were sleeping. Overall we loved the condo!"

  • Absolute Private Bliss!

    "When renting a condo for vacation, we are always hopeful that the place lives up to the expectation we build up in our minds. This condo exceeded our expectations! When we first walked in, we were overtaken by not only the coziness and nice design of the condo (it feels like a Hawaiian getaway!), but by the overwhelming sound of the ocean! We couldn't believe how well stocked the place was - it was just like being at home! I was so impressed that the kitchen was stocked with nice plates and glasses, coffee maker, pots and pans - not cheap hand-me-down looking stuff! The were lots of towels, more than we needed. And having the washer and dryer there was great (by the way, this was the first time anyone actually supplied washing detergent for us! :) Let's not forget to mention that amazing lanai! This was absolutely our favorite time on the island - just sitting out on the lanai, sipping on a drink, listening to those amazing waves.....ahhhhh! What a great spot to watch the surfers and the boat go by. We brought our own binoculars, but were surprised to find even a set of binoculars were supplied! Holly was an absolute delight, and she was super attentive to any need that we had. I don't have a single complaint about our visit, and I miss being there already! I cried when it was time to leave the lanai, and that beautiful view. We definitely plan to return - thanks for making it such a relaxing, enjoyable time! :)"

  • Loved our stay here!

    "This was our first visit to the Big Island, and we spent a week here celebrating my birthday. We're not exactly the resort variety, and we like to immerse ourselves in the local culture. With that in mind, we found this place to be perfect in that aspect. Our favorite things about the unit: - As was mentioned in the other reviews, the large lanai. We spent most of our mornings and evenings here enjoying the view and the sounds of the surf. The lanai overlooks the famous Banyan Beach surf spot, and we enjoyed watching the surfers. The view from the living room and bedroom were excellent as well. - "Da Poke Shack" is right downstairs! This place is consistently ranked as some of the best poke on the Big Island, and it was the first place we ate upon arriving. - The unit is fully stocked (especially the kitchen). We're "foodies" so we didn't spend much time preparing food here. However, there were a few occasions where we made breakfast, as well as some fresh Kona coffee (there is a grinder and coffee maker), and we found everything we needed. We could have just as easily prepared food here all week with how well stocked it was. We also found the washer/dryer very useful as well as the laundry basket. - The free Wifi. - The air conditioner in the bedroom. We stayed here at the end of July, so there were a few nights we ran it when it was especially hot/humid. As somewhat of a side note, I believe somebody in another review mentioned it was on a 2 hour timer. It is actually a 12 hour one. - The Big Island Revealed book under the coffee table (among the many other useful guide books). This especially helped us with our exploration of the island. - The ample parking. A couple of other notes: - As a friendly note to future renters, the ceiling fans in the bedrooms are on speed switches with a scale of 0-4 (with 0 being off). In the excitement of everything, we set it at 4 the first night thinking this was the fastest setting. They only ran at medium speed though. It didn't occur to us until the next morning that 1 is actually the fastest setting. - Liane (the owner) was very responsive, helpful and friendly. We will undoubtedly consider her units first when we return to the Big Island. Thank you for making our stay a wonderful one!"
