About Mary or Don Lerdahl
I have been visiting Maui for over twenty years, and each time I find something new to discover about this beautiful island paradise. The waters are warm, blue and filled with beautiful tropical fish. I enjoy golfing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Walking to the nearby restaurants, including Fred's Mexican Cafe (my personal favorite fun-spot!) is a great way to enjoy a night out after a day of activities.
Mary or Don Lerdahl purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Mary or Don Lerdahl chose Kihei
The Maui Banyan is the perfect location-my unit is right across from the Kamaole Beach Park II, yet within walking distance of restaurants, shopping and Wailea.
What makes this Condo unique
Taking a short walk across the street in time to sink my toes into the sand while watching the sun go down is one of my favorite things to do.

Great location, great facilities, great value!
Our arrival was seamless. We checked in at the front desk, and all of the keys, codes and parking information was provided. I had forgotten to obtain the wifi password, but went down later and had no problem receiving it. The condo was clean, tidy, and waiting for our arrival! The location can't be beat, and was the main reason for booking this condo compared to others similar to it. It is literally steps from the beach. We had no trouble carrying the provided chairs, towels and boogie boards the short distance to the water. Shops and restaurants are plentiful on the strip, some within a comfortable walking distance, others a short drive away. We did not use the pool or hot tub, but we heard from other guests that they were quite nice. The condo itself was spacious and well appointed. The kitchen had all of the necessary gadgets, although the garberator was also not functioning for our visit, but I contacted the owner and she nicely offered to have a repairman come to repair it during our stay. I didn't want to feel held back from my vacation waiting for the repairman to show up, and we didn't feel the need to use it during our stay, so we just let it go. We made due with the limited number of dishes, there was plenty of cutlery, but more coffee cups would have been convenient. Each bedroom was very spacious, each having their own fan and A/C unit, and balcony. The rooms were separated by the living/kitchen area, which provided ample privacy for the 2 couples travelling together. The shower in the bathtub also didn't drain well for us, probably due to the superfine sand from the beach. We did our best to rinse off as much of the sand from the beach as possible, it helped that there was a tap/shower head just at the entrance to Building A. Overall this was a great condo. It is exactly as the owner has advertised it. I would come back to it again the next time I visit Maui, and recommend it to anyone planning to stay in that area.
Thank you Kate for taking the time to write a review! I did address the garbage disposal and slow draining tub, so thanks for letting me know. Have a wonderful Christmas season, and I look forward to you staying with us again!
The property/trip was Amazing and as advertised!!
The condo was like being at home. We had everything needed to make our stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. We were able to make meals, had plenty of room, lots of closet space and drawers to unpack, a comfy king size bed, and even "My Pillows" (we have them at home and LOVED that we had them here). There were also beach chairs, mats, and an umbrella at the condo to take with us when we walked across the street to the beach. The evening sunsets were incredible and there were many shops and restaurants within walking distance. Our favorite places were S&Q's coffee shack, Da Kitchen, and Cafe O'Lei. As we were up early and made the most of every day, I was really impressed how quiet it was at night as we were able to open the doors to our lanai and listen to the ocean. The weather was better in Kihei with minimal rain. Overall, it was a perfect trip and the accommodations really made it worth the stay. As this was our first trip to Maui, it will not be our last. We are planning another one soon and will be sure and book this unit again. Everything was so very nice and well maintained and definitely exceeded our exceptions. A huge Thank You to Mary for everything and know we will be back soon!
Mahalo for your comments Deb! Glad you enjoyed the "My Pillows"; it is nice to have pillows that are not only comfortable but also washable! I try to make my condo as comfortable as possible for my guests, and I look forward to hosting you next time you visit beautiful Maui!
Lots of room, comfortable beds, and great location.
The condo was nice, but comparing it to the two that our two children and families rented, it was a bit funky, and lacking basic things, like salt and pepper in the kitchen. We thought it needs a bit of attention. The owner was very nice and helpful.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Sorry about the salt and pepper; it is amazing how often they go missing! I'll be at the condo in a few weeks and will look through to address those little things that do make a difference.
Absolutely Amazing Place to Stay....Fantastic Experience!!
I am not typically one to write reviews, however this condo was fantastic! The condo was extremely clean and well-maintained, exactly as described by the owner. All the amenities you could possibly require were available and the condo is very spacious! Mary the owner, was super to deal with - organized, professional and you can tell she truly cares about the people staying in her condo to ensure they have a great stay! We looked into a lot of places and by far this is also the best for the value. It is the closest to the beach without actually being on the beach! There are a lot of shops and great restaurants in walking distance. You can't go wrong with this place ...we recommend it 100%. It will be our first choice for sure whenever we travel to Maui!
Not for families with small kids
We've been in this unit in April with 6-months old baby. From the pictures, it looked nice - but the house smelled very bad (probably because the unit was not renovated for a while). We could not sleep well, and the ventilation system was not working properly. Also there were a lot of bugs coming from the kitchen, and we decided not to use it (and this is something that housekeeping cannot fix easily).
Because of that - we actually needed to move to the nearby hotel for three nights. I already communicated this with the owner, and since the description was not updated for families with small kids - I needed to post this negative review for the others.
I have been renting this unit to families with small children and infants for over a decade, and have never had a guest comment that it wasn't suitable for families with small kids, therefore I didn't feel it was appropriate to submit to the demand from this guest that I change the description of the unit to being unsuitable for families with small kids. I visit the condo at least once, and sometimes twice a year to address any needed issues, and the unit was completely renovated in 2007; new cabinets, appliances, tile floors, bathtub, toilets, sinks, etc. Since it is a tropical area little sugar ants can come out, especially if food has been left out on counters. Although maintenance regularly treats for pests, it can be an issue in any condo, home or hotel in any tropical area. There are three fully functioning air conditioning units, one in each bedroom and one in the living room. It is not a central HVAC system for the entire resort, which is different from a hotel. Staying in a hotel is different from staying in a condo and there are pros and cons to both. It is unfortunate that this guest did not respond to my phone calls and e-mails while at the property so that I could get further information to address his concerns.
PERFECT condo for a relaxing family vacation or a stay for two!
I have personally traveled to Maui many times throughout the years and this unit is my favorite place to stay by far! It's right next to the beach, clean, within walking distance to fun shops and eats (especially Fred's Mexican Cafe - Taco Tuesday and the DivaRita is a MUST!), and above all - the owner is friendly and quick to respond to any questions or concerns I might have. Right across the street at the beach there's great snorkeling, and you can go for a swim and not have to worry about being overcome with crazy waves. I have already booked for next year and can't wait to get my toes back in the sand!
