Kihei Condo Rental Photos and Description

Ground floor (Bldg F), king bed, 2 double beds and sofabed; full kitchen; lanais

If you love to swim or snorkel in the ocean, if you love outdoor adventures, if you want to stroll on a beach with your family as the sun sets, then our clean-and-comfy two bedroom condo at the Maui Banyan in Kihei, across the street from the Kamaole II Beach Park, is your ideal vacation headquarters.

Our two-bedroom, ground-floor condo has a perfect layout for a multi-generational family get-together, two couples on a joint vacation or a family where the kids want some privacy from the grownups. One portion of the condo consists of the master bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen, while the other portion, separated by a heavy door, has two double beds and its own bathroom and lanai.

The air-conditioned unit has a new king bed in the master bedroom, two double beds in the second bedroom, two bathrooms (one a shower, one with bathtub), a fully-equipped kitchen, living room, dining area, washer/dryer, two private lanais and all the beach paraphernalia you might want. It's less than a two-minute walk from our door to the beach!

Without any daily 'amenity fees,' you have access to all the Maui Banyan complex's amenities, such as the tennis court, outdoor grills, two swimming pools, jacuzzi spas and more.

The pools and hot tubs stay open until 9 at night, and right out our front door is a semi-private grassy yard with picnic table and BBQ grill that is perfect for a Happy Hour or outdoor suppers.

You're within a 10-minute walk of at least nine restaurants - Mexican, Hawaiian, sushi, tacos, pizza, steak/seafood, Indian, natural food, a bistro/deli and more. (Indeed, so convenient is the location that some of our guests have managed quite well without a rental car.) There's even a three-times-a-week yoga class you can walk to.

Usual occupancy is 4-6 people - or 8 if two kids are willing to sleep on the sofabed in the living room. There is a $10/night/person extra charge for more than 6 guests.

The unit is cool and quiet, with blackout curtains that allow you to sleep late, two shady, lighted lanais where you can sit out during the day or at night (without bugs!). They've recently trimmed the foliage, giving you a view of the ocean from the lanais.

With a ground-floor location, you won't need to lug stuff up and down stairs or wait for an elevator. The condo comes with beach chairs and umbrella, beach towels, snorkel sets, boogie board and kids' beach toys. Parking is free, with a multi-story garage that keeps your car from heating up in the sun.

We have on-island management so you can enjoy a carefree Maui vacation. Please let us know if you have any questions - we are happy to hear your concerns.

You'll receive a reply to your inquiry within 12 hours, often much sooner.

Hawaii tax registration number: W11072302-01.

About Marcia

We live on a lake in Massachusetts, where we swim every day we can, and were looking for a spot where we could swim other months of the year. Hawaii was the 50th state we visited and Maui turned out to be perfect for us. Our Maui Banyan location is across the street from the best swimming beach in Kihei - no rocks, expansive, manned by lifeguards 7 days a week.

If you love to swim, bodysurf, snorkel or make sand castles, this is the beach for you. We love the fact that our unit is just a two-minute walk to the ocean, close enough to hear the waves when we are in bed, and yet far enough back from the road that traffic noise is not a major annoyance.

Marcia purchased this condo in 2010

Why Marcia chose Maui

Maui is an island with many microclimates, and our location gets much less rain and less wind than spots even a mile or two away.

We were lucky to discover the Maui Banyan on our first trip to Hawaii, and while we looked at many other condo complexes, we didn't see any others with its convenient unit layout, quiet tropical setting and unsurpassed beach access.

Some more high-end complexes require you to navigate a steep hill to get to and from the beach or offer distant ocean views but no walkable beach access at all.

Also convenient are all the shops and restaurants within an easy walk that remain open till 8 p.m. or later.

Within the Maui Banyan complex, our location on the ground floor of Building F is perfect for visitors without the energy or ability to climb a lot of stairs, who want to be far enough away from the road to enjoy a good night's sleep yet close enough to get to the beach in no time.

Whereas some Maui Banyan units get miserably hot because of their placement relative to the sun, ours faces north, so that the lanais stay cool all day, every day.

What makes this condo unique

Be sure to bring binoculars! During the winter months, you can see whales with the naked eye at the beach across the street; the binoculars show you the whales' antics more clearly.

And you'll be entranced by the breathtaking sunsets at our beach. Almost every night, the sun turns the sky orange, yellow and pink in a dazzling display of nature's beauty.

We have even swum with giant gentle sea turtles here. And it's a joy to observe families bonding over the construction of architecturally complex sand castles.

You are sure to bring home a treasure chest of memories from your Maui Banyan vacation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I enjoyed opening the sliding door and taking my laptop outside to the private patio The pool and beach were just a minute away, and an incredible variety of restaurants were within a 10-minute walk. Except for a slow Internet connection, the condo met all my needs for a trip combining business with pleasure.:

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this condo three times - once with the previous owner - and consider it our Maui "home away from home." Maui is awesome and we like having a familiar homebase, offering everything we need - especially portable beach chairs, plenty of towels and a good night's sleep! The current owner (their property manager, actually) was responsive with minor issues that came up - for example once some bulbs had burned out and got replaced within a few hours and another time we couldn't find any garbage bags. Not a problem in the grand scheme of things... We expect to keep coming back.

Large unit but needs renos. Perfect location.

  • 3 of 5

We didn't spend much time in the condo as we were out exploring. Maui is a beautiful place and the location of this condo is perfect. The beach across the road is fantastic and the surrounding restaurants, shops, etc. are within walking distance. Driving around both sides of the island is feasible (on separate days) leaving from kihei. The condo unit is large and we enjoyed the beach chairs, umbrella and cooler provided. The kitchen needs to be re-stocked as most things look very old and worn out. There were no wine glasses so we purchased some. The entire unit smelled like damp carpet and this musty scent did not go away despite having fans running, fresh air flowing and air fresheners sprayed throughout the week. The decor was outdated and the entire place could use a serious re-model. Everything looked very old. One of the bedrooms has see through doors so we had to put up sheets to cover the doors so that we could change and sleep in privacy. There was not enough toilet paper or garbage bags so we had to purchase some. I liked the layout of the place with the bedrooms being separated on either end of the unit and there were two bathrooms which was great. Having lanais was really nice but they could use some new patio furniture. The pool and BBQ area was nice as well. The key box entry was convenient and the parking was close to the unit (sometimes the lot was full but there was additional parking a short walk away). Overall the condo itself wasn't great (especially for the price) but the location was perfect and we didn't spend much time in the unit anyways. We really enjoyed our stay on Maui.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We will of course reimburse you for the wine glasses you bought (Maybe our previous guests left them at the beach when watching the sunset?). We have arranged for the carpet to be cleaned. And we will definitely take your suggestions into account when we plan for renovations. We're glad to know you had a wonderful Maui vacation.

Amazing location

  • 4 of 5

Our family spent 1 week at the condo and had a wonderful time. Everything was at our fingertips - pool and a short walk to the ocean, along with all the beach equipment one could ask for. We loved having the gas grill right outside our door for family dinners. Our 3 sons all married joined us and they indeed had a great time as well. We will return maybe sooner than later. Thank You Marcia

Clean, convenient, funtastic

  • 5 of 5

What a wow vacation! My wife and I, 3 kids (14, 7, 5) loved the beach, our almost-private BBQ grill, the pool and jacuizi, the beach chairs, various sized boogie boards and brand-new sun umbrella... and the Monopoly that we played during our one rainy day. The kids were able to watch whatever TV they wanted while my wife and I unwound in the living room by ourselves. The decor is a bit bland and dated but it was extremely clean. Thank you for a great vacation setting!

Fantastik location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

We met some friends here during our around the globe voyage from Denmark and had a wunderful time in Maui staying in this condo. It was surprisingly quiet for being very close to the beach, and we were also surprised at the outdoor grills provided, which gave us some merry dinners in the yard. It was nice to see electricity consorvation suggestion because we could see other units running the AC full throttle while they left their door open!! Anyway, we enjoyed everything here and would ricomend it to others who need two separated bedrooms and two WCs and one kitchen.

Our first time in Maui... 2 senior couples. We each had plenty of privacy, were able to cook together either indoors in the kitchen or outdoors on the grill. LOVED the fresh air lanais and the location being close to everything we wanted to do. A wonderful vacation at the Maui Banyan and I just wish we could go back again soon.
