Aloha! We are Steve, Marie, Tyler and Dalton Preitauer. While we wish we could say we live on Maui all year, we actually live in Colorado and spend time on Maui as much as possible. While Steve was a Mid-western boy growing up, Marie is a Colorado native. Both our sons were born in Boulder, Colorado, and we live just a few minutes outside of Boulder today. We are your typical working class family, but one that decided that Maui was part of our future, so why not start now? Someday, Maui will be our forever home, but not yet... We look forward to having you stay in our home and learn to love Maui the way we do. Aloha!!
Marie purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Marie chose Kihei
Maui Banyan was our second purchase on Maui, and we love, love, LOVE it's location. Maui Banyan has beautifully landscaped grounds, two terrific pools and even two hot tubs. You don't stop to think you will enjoy a hot tub at the end of the day on Maui, but you DO! The Aloha spirit is very evident at Maui Banyan, and makes it my favorite get-away on Maui! One of the other things I love about our condo at Maui Banyan is how QUIET the property is at night. I can sleep with the lanai doors open and enjoy being awoken by the sounds of the birds in the morning. I love the sound of paradise!!
What makes this Condo unique
Maui Banyan is across the street from one of the best beaches on the entire island, Kamaole II. It is also easy walking distance to several other terrific beaches and lots of shops, bars, and restaurants. It has the central location and Hawaiian feel that makes you feel instantly relaxed and on vacation. We have decorated our condo at Maui Banyan to feel tropical without feeling cliched. We hope to see you in Paradise!

Absolutely Amazing In Every Way
I can't say enough about how awesome this place is. It has everything you need. Stocked kitchen, beach supplies, towels, blankets. The selling part for me was 2 bathrooms. I had my own bathroom and my 2 daughters shared the other one. We were able to completely unpack because there is a huge closet and dresser. It was our Maui home for 10 glorious days. We loved the vibe and would stay again!
Mahalo for staying in our Maui home, and for your great review. It is always great to know we played a part in making people’s dream vacation a reality. Aloha!!
Great location in South Kihei
This was a great spot to stay for our family of four. You were able to make many meals at home, wash our clothes and have comfy beds to sleep in. There are beaches across the street and shops and restaurants within walking distance. We visited south past Wailea and up to the northern tip of Maui from this location. It was a bit far to Lahaina and Kaanapali from here, but they are doable day trips. The room was stocked with snorkeling gear, boogie boards, sand toys and beach towels, although some were in very used condition. There is a pool, although we didn't find time to use it. We would absolutely stay in this unit again. Great experience!
Back to Maui
Maui Banyan is one of the best locations in Kihei. The beach is directly across the street. As well there are a number of restaurants within easy walking distance. Pools are excellent. The condo is well equipped including any beach items you may need.
Amazing family friendly spot!
Property had a fun look to it, had all the beach supplies we could possible ask for, and very family friendly. Easy access to the beach. Would definitely stay here again
Amazing place to stay in Kihei
We spent almost 2 full weeks on Maui during our honeymoon, staying a few different places every 2-3 days. Out of all the places we stayed, Kihei was the one we want to come back to. The town was amazing, the beaches were spectacular, and the condo we stayed at here was the only place that really felt like home during our entire stay. The kitchen was great and well stocked, the couch was comfortable, and AC was an amazing break from the usual on Maui, and the bed was huge and very comfortable.If we ever come back to Maui, we will likely stay here.
Mahalo for staying with us, and for taking the time to write a review. It was our pleasure to have you, and we hope to see you again someday! Aloha!!
Great place at a great price!
We're also VRBO owners, so we are fairly particular when renting properties. We were only in town for a quick visit (two short nights) so we didn't have the opportunity to experience all the condo had to offer.
However, here are some of the things we especially liked:
- Great location...not too close to the crowded main part of town, but walkable to many good restaurants. And, close access to the beach!
- Well stocked kitchen (including drip coffee maker and Keurig); beach towels and coolers for our use; liked having soap/shampoo in the bathroom
- Ceiling fans and air conditioner...we actually only turned on the AC when we first arrived to cool down the place but then were able to keep windows open and fans on for most of the rest of our time.
- Nice to have a washer/dryer to dry swim suits and towels
- Balcony was nice for early morning coffee or late evening wine
- Good communications/instructions from property manager.
- Easy parking
The furniture is a little tired, including the Master bed (you could hear the springs creaking when you turn over), but nothing was uncomfortable and, hey, this is the beach after all.
We would definitely return again!
Mahalo for staying in our home, and for writing a review! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay on Maui and at the Maui Banyan! My husband and I arrived just after you departed, and we immediately noticed that the mattress had seen better days. The first thing we did was locate a brand new, luxury mattress that was delivered a few days later. It is amazing! We also spent some time tightening legs on chairs, polishing wood surfaces, etc. so that everything is feeling great again. Lots of painting was also on our schedule. Gotta love taking it easy in Hawaii, right?! Mahalo again for your time with us, and we hope to see you again, someday! Aloha!
Our condominium is located in Building H of Maui Banyan. The lanai faces South towards the upcountry mountains. The South-facing units overlook the courtyard, not the driveway and parking structure, making the location very quiet. The elevators make it very convenient to get in and out with your bags and groceries, as well as with all of your shopping finds!
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing
