|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
Welcome to our home! Enjoy the best beach and ocean views that Maui Banyan Resort has to offer from our top-floor, corner-unit, luxury home.
The ocean view from our condo is spectacular, one of the best the Maui Banyan has to offer. All of the view photographs in this listing were taken from our lanai, while sitting at the bar-height patio table. If you are familiar with the Maui Banyan property, we are the top-floor corner unit on the cool (north) side of the G building (#G-502). The G building is the 5-story building right in front of you as you drive up the driveway into the property from South Kihei Road, and our condo is the top-left unit you see as you come up the driveway. While there are three buildings between G and South Kihei Road (buildings A, B and F), they are only two stories high and they don’t impede the ocean view from our condo whatsoever. As I mentioned above, we are on the north side of the building, so the condo and the lanai are always nice and cool.
From the moment you walk in the door, you will feel at home in our completely remodeled condo. You will see the quality touches from the bamboo flooring to the vintage Hawaiiana artwork throughout.
Unlike most Maui Banyan properties, we offer two luxury Master Suites furnished with:
- Extra-large 'California King' beds with pillow-top mattresses. (NO need to sleep on two twin beds pushed together!)
- High thread-count sheets and bedding.
- Flat screen television in each Suite.
- Over-sized spa bath towels & relaxing 'rain drop' showers heads.
Make tropical drinks in our gourmet kitchen which includes:
- Cherry finished cabinetry and granite countertops.
- New top-of-the-line appliances throughout.
- Hawaiiana dishware and glassware.
- Fully equipped for whatever gourmet dish you cook up!
Our home has all the usual amenities that you would expect... and more!
- 3 flat screen TVs and DVD player
- Free wireless internet (Bring your laptop!)
- Air conditioning
- Ceiling fans throughout
- Full-size, front-loading washer and dryer (not the small apartment-sized, all-in-one units provided in most Maui Banyan condos)
- Large refrigerator and ice maker
- Ultra-quiet dishwasher
- Fully stocked linen closet
- Beach chairs and beach towels
- Covered parking
- And more...
We provide the check-in and check-out cleaning, but our home does not include daily maid service. If this is something that you are interested in, daily maid service is available at an additional charge. Just ask us!
And don't forget about all the things to do!
- 2 Pool areas with jacuzzis, lounges, several gas BBQs, & tables for dining pool-side.
- 1 minute walk to the beach for sun, snorkling, & coastline walks.
- 2 minute walk to lots of shopping and restaurants.
- 5 minute drive to the exclusive Shops at Wailea.
We were married on the beach in Maui, in a wonderful little ceremony attended by just ourselves and our parents. That was back in 1990 and over the years we have absolutely fallen in love with Maui, especially the south (Kihei/Wailea) side. While we are currently still 'tied to our jobs' on the mainland, our plan is to 'someday' retire to Maui. In the meantime, we would love to share our home with you.
Mahalo and aloha,
Julie and Randy

We chose the Maui Banyan Resort due to its wonderful location in south Kihei. The resort is right across the street from a gorgeous, white sand beach. Additionally, there are many wonderful food and shopping options within an easy walk from the resort (see three of our favorite restaurants highlighted on the map to the right!) Also, we love SCUBA diving, and the Maui Banyan is less than 1/2 mile from the Kihei Boat Ramp where all the dive and snorkle boats depart for Molokini Crater and all the South Maui dive sites! What more could you ask for? It's the perfect location!
The best thing about our unit (# G-502) is the view from the lanai. The exact location of our unit is marked by the green pin on the map to the right. We have the best ocean view in the entire Maui Banyan Resort, it is spectacular, and if you look at our guest reviews you will see that we're not the only ones who think so! Sitting on the lanai with a cool 'adult beverage' is one of our favorite Maui activties. Especially during the winter whale season, when we can spend hours and hours sitting on the lanai watching these wonderful animals play in the ocean! Summers on the lanai aren't too bad either with phenominal sunsets nearly every night.
What a terrific spot for a family vacation. We shared the two bedroom condo with our daughter and her husband, great privacy for two couples. We have stayed at the Maui Banyan on two previous occasions, rented thru Aston, this unit was far superior to those of our earlier visits. Such a great upgrade, we particularly liked the absence of any carpet, so often we have encountered dirty carpets in vacation rentals. The views from the lanai are special, Margie observed whales breaching offshore right from the lanai. We enjoyed the proximity of the beach directly across the road from the unit, and the shops and restaurants nearby, walking distance! Snorkeled often, saw turtles at beach nearby, espescially enjoyed Ulea Beach and the Ahihi Nature preserve. Cars are a necessity when staying anywhere on Maui, such natural beauty to be seen, don't miss Haleakala at sunrise. Randy and Julie, you do such a good job of communicating with your guests, even though we have been to Maui many times in the past, we appreciated the information you provided us prior to our arrival regarding sights, activities and restaurants The next time we travel to Maui we will try to book this unit again, no better place to enjoy Hawaii!. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo.

Thank you for a fabulous stay! Randy and Julie's condo was much more than we expected. This condo has amazing views! Being a front corner unit, we were spoiled everyday with our ocean view. So nice that the lanai chairs are taller so you can see over the railing. The condo has beautiful upgrades, and a nice mix of modern style yet maintaining an island feel. We can tell there was much thought put into all that was available for our use. The kitchen was well equipped with all we needed to have our own 'home away from home'. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, including the close proximity to the beach, how well the building and grounds are taken care of, having coffee on the lanai, making some awesome meals...just waking up to see what the day might bring.
Kam II beach, road to Hana, Haleakala crater, 'Iao Valley, Hula Grill in Ka'anapali, Bistro 808 (you can bring your own bottle of wine), Old Lahaina Lu'au, Blue Hawaiian Helicopter ride, seeing turtles at Ho‘okipa beach, Willie K at Mulligans on the Blue and much much more!
Loved our romantic getaway! Communication with the owners was excellent. Right from the time we inquired about the unit, booked our stay, they touched base during our stay and followed up when we left. We would definitely come back and stay at this condo.
Mahalo Randy and Julie!
Randy & Julie's condo is everything you could expect and more! The view is amazing and the condo is exactly as described. We were two couples, staying for three weeks...it is perfect for both private space and togetherness. Thanks Randy & Julie for sharing your home and making our stay so perfect.
This condo is everything that we could have hoped for! We stayed here with another couple the week of our 20th anniversary and had an absolutely wonderful time.
The condo is exactly as described and the location is only steps from the beach. Everything looked just like the pictures - no they are NOT too good to be true. The owners responded promptly and checked with us our first day to be sure there were no problems. They also followed up afterwards to be sure everything was okay and met our expectations. There was ample parking, and check in/out was simple. But enough about the administrative stuff.
The condo is stocked with whatever you might need at the beach - from beach towels to beach mats to chairs to a cooler. We left a couple of boogie boards behind as well (just in case). There are plenty of towels, sheets, and lovely appliances. There is also air conditioning, glorious air conditioning - while you don't need it always it sure was nice to have when you did. The lanai looks out over the beach and you can sit and greet the start of the day with your cup of coffee. Walk to Fred's for breakfast and then across the street to the beach - life in paradise!
The owners also provided a list of local places to try and the best of Maui list. We only were able to try a few of the places, but all of them were wonderful - Mulligans on the Blue, Feast at Lele, Trilogy Snorkel Trip to Lanai'i, the Ioa Valley, a day trip to Haleakela, lunch in Paia, touring at Lahaina with lunch at Cheeseburger in Paradise, etc etc etc Everywhere we went was fun!
I really can hardly wait to go back and the best part of the entire trip was going home to our little condo on the beach. You can't go wrong staying here.
This was the first time on Maui for our family and we really really, really liked this condo, its location, the amenities and the service that Randy and Julie provided. As it turns out, we started the week with 2 hurricanes heading to Hawaii and we were wondering if our dream vacation was turning into something different. Well long story short we had 2 days of not-so-great-weather and nothing else. Randy stayed in contact with us and sent us helpful links as the storms approached. The location of the condo is outstanding, the view is stunning and we were able to walk to the a very nice beach everyday. The restaurant listing from Randy is great and we were able to find a few that our family really enjoyed.
The best compliment that I can give anything is that I would do it all over again, and I definitely would do it all over again with property.
My family of 4 (two adult children included) recently stayed at this beautiful apartment at the Maui Banyan. Randy was extremely accommodating since this was our first time traveling to Hawaii. He gave us suggestions on what to do, where to eat etc and was very prompt with communication. The apartment itself was beautiful! Ample space, extremely clean, quiet, kitchen with all the amenities and great location. We had a beautiful view of the beach from the balcony and there was plenty of restaurants within walking distance. I would highly recommend Randy's place to family and friends and hope to return again soon!
