About the property

House,4 Bedrooms/5 baths and 3 cottages/3baths, 700 sq ft yoga studio

Removed from the hotel / resort beachfront crowds, the 2.1 acre Banyan Tree Estate simply overflows with peace and Hawaiiana. Giant Banyan, Monkeypod and Jacaranda trees create a peaceful, shady oasis a midst the fruit trees, flowers and wide open lawns. Several swings and hammocks hang from the trees offering comfortable private places . Our 50' salt water swimming pool and Hot tub offers spectacular ocean and mountain views. We have a 700 sq ft fully equipped Yoga Studio including full A/V equipment Permit # CP0000012

Furnished in traditional island style furniture, the living room, formal dining room and bedrooms will give you the flavor of old Hawaii.

We are just a short walk to the quaint Cowboy town of Makawao, and 15 minutes to Paia and Ho'okipa, the internationally-renown windsurfing mecca of Maui's spectacular north shore!

On the cusp of the wet and dry sides of the island, the Banyan Tree House usually is bathed in sunshine interspersed with occasional rain showers and heavier tropical rain. In the surrounding hills you have the finest hiking, biking and horseback riding on the island. There are two golf courses in the area. Telephone, fax, wireless internet and laundry facilities included on the premises.

Keywords: 9 Bed Room Estate. Consisting of 3 suites and a small bedroom in the Plantation house with 5 additional cottages, one of which has two separate bedrooms. all bedrooms have their own private bath

What makes this house unique

Most of our guests remark on how beautiful and relaxing the property is. Wide open lawns that are surrounded by sprawling old trees and flower gardens all help create the ideal restful atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family stay at the Banyan Tree House with our two young kids (under 10) and my parents (in their 70s). It was a delight! It is one of very few places upcountry that allows children and we were all welcome to swim in the large pool, play on the hammock and swing on the big lawn, play the piano on the screened lanai, and play ping pong. The historic plantation manager's home is roomy and gracious, and the kitchen is fit for throwing large parties! The yoga studio is a wonderful bonus for those so inclined to practice or meditate. Marty keeps the BTH sustainable, with a wind turbine, recycling, composting, and eco-friendly soaps (no detergents!). We felt quite at home.

The location is convenient: it is up the road from Paia, another quaint town with a great health food store, 1/2 hour from the gate to Haleakala National Park (1 hour to the summit), and right around the corner from Hali'i Maile General Store, an award-winning cafe that serves tasty local, organic dishes. I highly recommend the Banyan Tree House.

Great place for family reunions!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family reunion for 7 nights. Since this was a family reunion, we occupied the whole entire estate with just around 20 people (adults and kids). The grounds of the Banyan Tree House are beautiful. There are plenty of tropical floral plants and fruit trees all around. A huge "backyard" with a couple of tree swings for the kids to use. Being in upcountry Maui, the weather was nice with cool breezes blowing all around. It was a comfort to come back to the house after an excursion in Lahaina or Kihei, where it was hot. Furthermore, the location of the place gave us that quiet, homey, laid back feeling.

The beds are pretty comfortable. The kitchen in the main house was roomy with an oven and griddle combo and another oven/stove right next to it. All the bathrooms in the house and other cottages, are all upgraded. Marty the owner was very nice and kind to answer any questions we had. He also hung a bunch of tree ripened bananas for everyone to pick and eat by the entry way of the property. This is definitely a place that I would recommend and come back to stay every time I visit Maui.
