Amazing Kona Oceanfront location! Located directly oceanfront at Banyan's surf break. You can't get much closer to the ocean than this unless you are on a boat.!

Life can be so stressful ...enter the door to Banyan Tree 204 and leave your cares behind. Many vacationers have described staying at Banyan Tree 204 as a Hawaiian Bucket List Worthy Experience. The ocean views from your luxurious oceanfront condo are incredible! Then add the gentle breezes over the Pacific ocean and the swaying palms shimmering in the sunlight in the background...PARADISE! Sit down ocean views from the master bedroom, living room, kitchen, and lanai through the floor to ceiling wall of glass! You are literally 20' away from the gorgeous Pacific ocean!

Over $100,000 spent on complete top to bottom remodel, with new kitchen, baths, flooring, doors, plumbing fixtures, lighting, appliances, cabinetry, and furnishings. This spectacular residence has been fully equipped with everything needed to make your stay completely comfortable and features slab granite and solid wood espresso colored mahogany cabinetry in kitchen, hall, and baths, stainless steel appliances including microwave, FREE Long Distance to Canada and Mainland USA, large screen flat panel in living room.

This condo is tropically decorated and furnished and is perfect for a family or a romantic getaway or spacious enough for a family. There is a queen size sleeper sofa for additional sleeping. (And what a view from this sleeping space) We also did extra things when remodeling our vacation home like moving the small water heater out of the kitchen that most other units have at Banyan Tree and we added a large hot water heater a placed in the back of the condo that is big enough to provide water for a large home with several people. No running out of hot water during your shower here! We also expanded the kitchen so that you can open the dishwasher all the way and not hit the oven. We strive to make your vacation experience the very best experience possible while visiting The Big Island.

Watch the whales and dolphins, swim with the sea turtles and tropical fish right outside your door. There is seating for 5 on the amazing ocean view lanai.

Banyan Tree is the perfect location only 2 miles south of downtown Kona, as well as 2 miles north of the Keauhou shopping center, with all of the fantastic restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, but also several grocery stores, WalMart and even a Costco close by. We have the best ocean view pool in Kona or explore the many secluded beaches very nearby from sugar white to jet black sand.

Please feel free to contact Candace. She will be happy to answer all of your questions about our very special Kona Oceanfront condo Banyan Tree 204 or the Kona and Keauhou areas.

About Candace Remington Spinali

Aloha! We are Michael and Candace Spinali from Tucson, Arizona. Michael is a native from San Diego and Candace grew up in Michigan. We enjoy our little slice of paradise at Banyan Tree and we are very active as owners of our vacation rentals. We have been married for 28 years and we have two sons. Our oldest son is Michael and he is enrolled in graduate school at SDSU in Electrical/Computer Engineering Program. Our youngest son Cole attends The Wildcat Academy of Engineering at The University of Arizona. (Thus the reason we live in Tucson and left San Diego) We feel very blessed to own our vacation home and to be able to share it with families from around the world!

Candace Remington Spinali purchased this condo in 2007

Why Candace Remington Spinali chose Kona Coast

After exploring the Hawaiian Islands we narrowed our search for a vacation home to the Big Island. It took us three years of looking to finally find our getaway.(And several months of construction once we did find it!) Our 'had to have list' was extensive. We knew what we wanted because we had vacationed in so many other vacation homes. We had to be on the ocean ( we had to be able to view sunsets, surfers, and whales from the unit!), the lanai had to be private(no fishbowl) we had to have two bedrooms ...the master had to have a king sized pillowtop bed and the guest room had to be able to have two full beds ( our oldest son is 6'4' and still growing!) We love our sanctuary! The sound of the waves, the view from almost every room, the 40' wall of glass to let the view in, the pool is fantastic, and the local people are beautiful! We love The Big Island and look forward to returning every time we go...and then we hate to leave and we always plan our next visit before we even get on the plane to leave! It truly is's the perfect place to unwind and escape from everyday busy life! It is a magical place and we love sharing our island home with families from all over the world!

What makes this condo unique

Our Kona Oceanfront vacation rental is located close to everything, and so peaceful with the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep every night. It is close to everything yet a world away surrounded by lush vegetation and the serenity of the waves rolling in to the beautiful Kona Coast shoreline.

Perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and another couple spent ten days at this condo. It was perfect. It was so comfortable for the 4 of us and there was space for privacy when we needed it. The property was just as described and had everything we needed for our time in Kona-Kailua. We cooked several meals here and it had everything we could possibly need. It was clean, the grounds were pristine and the pool was great. I've already recommended this place to friends and we will return here on our next trip to Kona. We watched spinner dolphins and sea turtles everyday from our lanai. Like Candace indicated for her, the lanai was our "happy place" as well. The property is close to town but heading south a mile or two is a fantastic local park where the snorkeling and coral formations are spectacular. We couldn't have enjoyed this place more or recommend it more highly. This is an amazing place! A+++

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your awesome review! It warms my heart to hear that you enjoyed the "Happy Place" (The Lanai) The views are breathtaking! It hooks you from the time you enter the condo and makes you never want to leave. But I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the snorkeling and the beaches located so close to the condo. Remember, the " happy place" is always ready to welcome you back! Mahalo nui loa, Candace

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

First, let me say the ocean view from this condo is absolutely breathtaking beyond words. Everything about this unit is exactly as the owner described, and it is exactly what my husband and I anticipated...and more! The unit is beautifully decorated with comfortable, high end furnishings throughout. What you see in the photos really is what you get, and more. The kitchen is fully equiped and well adorned with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances...and the ocean view again from here is awesome! Our son is 14 and loved his own room which was also tastefully decorated and comfortable. He was happy with the Wi-Fi and never turned on the TV. The Master bed was comfortable and the gentle roar of the ocean was like a soothing lulliby every night we were there. In addition, the owners had a nice selection of water toys; boogie boards, snorkle gear, an Umbrella, beach chairs and mats, and a cooler that we used to pack lunch and drinks while we were traveling around the island. The unit is quiet and close to everything. We used the pool and the hot tub every day and the grounds were clean and well maintained including new grass and a very nice new rock wall that was recently replaced. Everything about this condo was perfect for us. We stayed for two weeks and it wasn't long enough..We are now planning another trip to The Big Island for three weeks and there is no need to look any further...this is definately the place to stay. Mahalo Candace!

A beautiful condo on the strip

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for something in the heart of the tourist area, you can't beat this place. It offers beautiful sliding glass doors that open to the ocean, amazing views, and all the comforts you'd expect in a vacation condo. While not unique, I'd recommend it for young families who are looking to center their trip around the tourist strip and a family friendly, beach-front pool.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Daniel for submitting your review. I have reached out to you to make sure that you submitted a review for the right condo, but I have not heard anything back. I totally understand how crazy busy you must be after arriving back home from your Hawaiian vacation! Because you were there only two nights, you probably visited other islands and stayed in other condos so it can all get very confusing. For future guests reading this I want to clarify: Banyan Tree is located 2 miles south of Kona in a sleepy little beach area. No tourist strips here on The Big Island like Maui or Oahu ; so for future guests looking to stay on a tourist strip, this is not the place! There are only 20 condos at Banyan Tree so it is never crowded. Which is one of the main reasons we decided to purchase our little slice of paradise. We live in San Diego and when we are on vacation, we do not want large crowds, we get enough of that everyday! Although I do welcome families with children, I have a large amount of empty nesters, honeymooners, couples traveling together, and empty nesters with grown children that stay in Banyan Tree 204 throughout the year; as the 32 foot- floor to ceiling, wall of glass that overlooks the ocean is breathtaking! Extremely peaceful, extremely calming! And you certainly can't stay any closer to the ocean. You are SO CLOSE HERE! The views are for sure amazing! Banyan Tree does have a beautiful, solar heated, saline oceanfront pool. It is not located on a beach but it sure is close to the ocean! ( Yep, some more amazing views from here) So happy that you enjoyed your Hawaiian adventure Daniel and I hope that you can return someday for a longer stay! Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

The view from the balcony is spectacular. I could get enough of it. Watching the surfers while enjoying my breakfast became a morning ritual. I will truly miss this place.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to write your review. It is truly appreciated! ( And you wrote this while still on vacation! ) The view is a jaw dropper. It is so hard to leave the lanai as that view hooks you every time. You are as close to the ocean as you possibly can get that is for sure. So happy to hear that you enjoyed your island time at Banyan Tree. You were an amazing guest that I would love have return! Safe travels home, Candace

A beautiful setting right on the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Kona many times, but our condo was in a great location. We had a fantastic view of up to 20 surfers riding the 10 - 15 foot waves. It was awesome!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking time to write your review! The surfers in front of Kona Banyan Tree are known as "The Show". It is like watching a continuous surfing movie, except that you are there in person hearing/seeing the large waves, feeling the breeze from the trade winds, and watching the palm fronds dance in the sunshine. So special. I am so happy that you enjoyed your "front row seating to the show"! You are as close as you can get to the ocean when on the lanai of Banyan Tree 204. You were fantastic guests and I hope to have you back! Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Simply Incredible!!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at the Banyon Tree #204 on May 4-12, 2017. It was incredible! The view is amazing, and you are right there at the edge of the Pacific. We were able to watch surfers every day, as it is a great spot for surfing. The condo is in a perfect location... we went south and visited the volcano one day and hit some incredible beaches. We were able to enjoy Kona every day. And then we also went north to Hawi and hit beaches to the north as well. The condo is set up to take full advantage of the view! The kitchen had everything we needed, and Candace even provides beach towels and chairs, an umbrella, boogie boards, flippers, binoculars. Candace was amazing to work with also! I plan to go back and this is exactly where I'll stay!

Owner's Response: Aloha Cinda! Mahalo for taking time out of your schedule to write your review. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay on the ocean. It is definitely a bucket list worthy experience. To be able to sit on the sofa or sit on the lanai and watch the surfers, the dolphins, the turtles, the tropical fish, and even the whales in season is an experience that you have to experience because there are no words to describe. (You are so darn close to the ocean!!! ) It is so special and it is definitely my happy place. You were an awesome guest that I enjoyed getting to know. I look forward to having you return with your hubby. Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace
