Our top floor (4th floor) penthouse is in a secure and private building with elevator, pool, spa and barbeque. It is the perfect vacation penthouse to enjoy the Aloha spirit of the Big Island of Hawaii.

When ceiling fans just do not cut it, don’t worry, enjoying the spectacular views from our air conditioned penthouse setting is the ultimate bonus. Our generously sized lanai is right off the living room so you can enjoy it anytime without disturbing other guests relaxing in the bedrooms.

Delight in ’front seat’ views of incredible sunsets over the ocean, watch in amazement as photo-perfect whales, dolphins, sea turtles and tropical fish pass close by. Enjoy watching expert surfers doing amazing water acrobatics - you will be entranced by all that you see from our spacious lanai.

Enjoy eating al-fresco in the gentle ocean breezes, deploy the retractable solar shades to enjoy the lanai in cool shaded comfort.

Enjoy the abundance of all that is fresh and tasty on this Island Paradise - go shopping at the nearby farmers’ market, cook a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen, and feast either at the dining table in the cool air conditioned indoors or outside on the breezy lanai with the ocean in the foreground.

Coming back to this air conditioned home will be an indescribable pleasure after a day out enjoying the Big Island great outdoors - whether you’ve been out surfing, swimming, cliff diving, whale watching, sailing, hiking, zip lining, sunbathing, shopping or simply exploring any of the numerous incredible Big Island sights.

This large modern penthouse has been fully remodelled and interior designed, no expense has been spared. It is a spacious, airy, penthouse with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms that can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests.

For privacy, the master bedroom is separated from the living room by a shoji pocket door. The second bedroom has two twin beds with posturepedic mattresses which can be converted into a king size bed upon request and there is also a queen sleeper sofa in the living room.

We provide quality beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkel equipment, umbrellas, cooler, etc. for your beach going pleasure.

Location, location, location!

About Bhavesh

We have owned and operated this property as a vacation rental since 2004. We truly care about our guest's experience and have a great team in Kona looking after the property and our guests.

Bhavesh purchased this condo in 2004

Why Bhavesh chose Kona Coast

We love Hawaii - a little unspoilt corner of this planet. This condo has an excellent oceanfront location, is really comfortable and beautiful, well furnished, clean, bright and very convenient to everywhere. The entire building underwent a major renovation in 2008 and the Homeowners' Association continues to improve and maintain the building. Even though there are just twenty units in the building, we have a great building manager living on-site looking after the building's common elements.

What makes this condo unique

Absolute Oceanfront Location, beautifully remodeled, very responsive owners, great team looking after the guests and property, large lanai.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The condo was great - really enjoyed it. No problems or issues at all as we found the property to be clean, in excellent repair and well-appointed. I would recommend this unit to others. The only very minor item to note is the vacuum wasn't functioning properly - not sure why.

We were very pleased with our recent stay at Banyan Tree condominiums. We brought our two boys, ages 10 and 14. They really liked having their own bedroom with twin beds. This unit is on the 4th floor and has an amazing view. The photos are very accurate. Every morning we relaxed with our coffee on the lanai and watched the surfers right outside our back door. When the tide was low we saw turtles resting on the tidepools at the condos next door. The condo is very clean, comfortable and well stocked. We enjoyed having the thick beach towels, the beach mats, and cooler. The beds were very comfortable (and we are picky about our beds!) and the sheets and bath towels are of very good quality. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of dishes, pots, knives, etc. We looked at a lot of places on VRBO and decided what we really wanted was a place with a great view of the ocean and this place did not disappoint. The location can't be beat - not too close to all the hub-bub of downtown Kona, but not too far that you can't drive down there in about 5 minutes. We really appreciated the assigned parking right under the building and the security of the building. We felt very safe leaving our windows open at night and falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The building has about 18 units from what we could tell; the pool is very clean and literally right near the ocean. There's a hot tub too. It's all beautifully maintained by the building manager, Dana, who is very helpful and friendly. We had the pool area to ourselves every day. The condo location served as a good launching pad for all our activities. We drove to Volcano one day, drove up north twice, visited several local beaches, tried out many dining places on the water and took a boat trip with Sea Quest, which was amazing. I highly recommend them. We rented snorkeling gear just up the street at Millers. Mark got us all outfitted in less than 30 minutes. We also ate at Da Poke Shack just around the corner from Millers. Very yummy. Bhavesh, the condo owner, was very accommodating throughout the entire process. He was easy to communicate with via email, always responding quickly. We had no problems at all and would definitely return. The only suggestion I would have is one more comfy chair to sit on in the living room area. Other than that, the condo is nicely furnished with a sofa, wooden chair, dinette set and very nice furniture on the lanai. We ate out there several times. We'll definitely return!

Owner's Response: Sarah, many thanks for a wonderful review. On your recommendation we purchased and installed two new beautiful bamboo chairs for the living room. Also we now have air conditioning in the unit. In addition, we have a new sofabed and a new mattress pad for the sofabed to make it even more comfortable. We have installed new ductwork for our dryer so that it now vents through the roof instead of into the condo. There is a new flat screen HD LED TV and an internet enabled blueray DVD in the guest bedroom. The swimming pool and patio area was completely refurbished in September 2013. The garage had new asphalt laid in September 2013 also.

Hawaii Luxury

  • 5 of 5

At the Banyon Tree you will find the best views of the ocean from the west wall of windows. In the mornings, catch the surfers riding a morning wave. The unit overlooks one of the few spots for surfing on the whole west coast. This balcony is also ideal for viewing the last rays of sunshine as the sun sets over a gorgeous ocean. Watch for the green flash!

If you are the adventurous type, you will be happy to know that you have easy access to some great adventures; Kayaking, surfing, hiking, sight-seeing, and my personal favorite, cliff-diving. Just south of the Banyon Tree you can find a place to challenge your inner fears of falling. Take the plunge or just enjoy the scenery. Either way, I encourage you to find The End of the Earth.

Being a vegan makes life as a tourist a little more difficult. At the Banyon Tree I was able to cook my own meals with simple ingredients that are found around the corner.

Come back to the Banyon Tree after a long day, clean up, and set out for an interesting night on the town for food, music, or shopping.

An idyllic rental

  • 5 of 5

There’s nothing better than waking up to the crashing waves of the ocean and that’s exactly what you will get at the Banyan Tree Condos.

We stayed at 401 (a 2 bed 2 bath 4th floor condo) for 5 days and we all found it extremely hard to leave! Cozy, clean and comfortable with all the creature comforts you would expect at your own home, this is the perfect spot for any Kona vacationer.

There are only two units with AC at the Bayan and with the Hawaiian humidity during our visit, I certainly wanted that luxury, which I discovered is a rarity with a lot of condos here. The owner, when I contacted him, responded within 20 minutes of emailing him (a huge plus) and answered all my questions and although I was still researching my options, something about the pictures I had seen, other traveler’s reviews, location, and his attentiveness kept it atop my list and with 2 hours of contacting him, I booked the property and I wasn’t disappointed. Once you open that front door, you are greeted with a fantastic view of the ocean (see pics).

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans of all sizes, there a blender for all green smoothie drinkers, DVD movies, board games, a crock pot, a coffee peculator, dishwasher/washing machine, hairdryer, towels and even some plastic containers incase you want to take food on the go. There’s even washing detergent which we used and made sure we replenished it. I love the fact that the owner calls the first day to check on you and ensure you are comfortable and answers any questions you may have.

Great condo, great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this great condo during our visit to Big Island with a family of four. We had a lovely time and the views are amazing.

Especially we were super impressed with the professional, safe and responsive service by the owner. Great job!

The condo is clean and has most things you'll need for a great stay.

We're giving this four very big stars - this could have been a 5-Star property, but the condo decor needs an update.

An Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property is oceanfront. There is a surf break right out in front of the property that is popular with local surfers and so we woke up most mornings and prepared breakfast to the sound of the surf and the sight of surfers catching the waves. The owner provided boogie boards, a cooler, snorkel gear and beach towels with an umbrella and so it was nice to not have to rent these items or bring them along( these may have been left by previous tenants, but they were still very useful). The sunsets from the lanai are fabulous and having air conditioning was a big plus for this condo because many, in Kona do not ( the weather is such that you could get along comfortably without it, but it was nice to have for sleeping) Additionally, there is a full size washer and dryer which made it easy to pack light. It also has a clean updated feel due to an apparent recent remodel. One more thing that made this property appealing, was a convenience store right across the street where you could pick up anything you forgot at the grocery store.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kona at this condo and have to give it a 5 star rating.

Amazing location, beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation at this property. The location and view were fantastic! The owner provided several beach chairs, boogie boards, fins, and an umbrella.

This could have been a 5-Star property if there had been some extra amenities and updated decor. (e.g., more than the bare minimum paper towels, TP, kitchen items.)
