Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Kona Oceanfront, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Amazing Ocean View, Hear/See The Waves

Awesome Kona Oceanfront location! Located directly oceanfront at Banyan's surf break.( For additional specials, photos or more info, checkout our website - click the link at the VERY bottom of this page, right above the car rental options.) Sweet tropical paradise~ You can't get much closer to the ocean than this unless you are on a boat.! Aloha and welcome to your Kona Oceanfront slice of paradise~ Banyan Tree 301!

Banyan Tree 301 is a gem! A Hawaiian oceanfront paradise, completely remodeled with breathtaking ocean views! Our passion is to make every stay memorable for each guest, and to make each visiting VIP feel truly welcome in our Kona Oceanfront Hawaiian Hale! Come relax and unwind in our Big Island slice of paradise, where everything is brand new! Your flip flops are guaranteed to be knocked right off from the moment you open the front door! The ocean view is breathtaking! The sunsets are amazing; you will be able to see turtles, dolphins, whales, tropical fish, and surfers all from this little slice of heaven. You can hear and see the ocean waves, they will lull you to sleep in your oceanfront Master Bedroom king size pillow top mattress every night. You have an ocean view from almost every room, all except the bathrooms.

Everything, and I mean everything, is new in this Kona oceanfront condo. For the aspiring chefs, there's a brand new kitchen here! We even made the kitchen a little wider to allow more space for the chef. ( And so that you can completely open the dishwasher) Sleep like a baby on the new pillow top King Size Bed in Master Bedroom. There are mahogany shoji pocket doors that close for extra privacy, separating the master bedroom from living area. There are two twin pillow top beds in guest bedroom. Upon request, we will happily push together the two twins to create a king size bed. We also have a portable crib and a high chair for all our little VIP guests. Gorgeous, original Hawaiian artwork throughout condo, three large- flat screen TV's in the living room and in both bedrooms. There is a large capacity washer/dryer in the unit, no trips to the laundromat needed.

Banyan Tree is a smaller complex of only 20 condos, so it never seems crowded. No getting up early here to run down to the oceanfront pool to place a towel on your chair to reserve your seat for the day! The oceanfront salt water pool is solar heated and has one of the best views in all of the Big Island! After a long day of sightseeing, enjoy a soak in the oceanfront hot tub and watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. There are grills and an outdoor shower located adjacent to the pool area. All amenities at Banyan Tree are free for all guests of 301 to use.

There is FREE long distance to mainland USA and to Canada and FREE internet access. We have over 200 channels including several Premium movie channels. There is a Xbox-360 with one controller, just bring your favorite games. We provide boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella, coolers, ice packs for the coolers, beach towels, and even sand toys for your outings to all of those beautiful, Big Island beaches. We have a reserved parking space in the covered garage.

Banyan Tree 301 is a perfect honeymoon destination. Also spacious enough for two couples traveling together or families (with kids!). If you are attending a Big Island convention, 301 is located approximately two miles from either Kailua-Kona or the Keauhou area.

If you should have any questions regarding the Big Island or Banyan Tree 301, please do not hesitate to contact Candace. Mahalo Nui Loa for your interest in my Hawaiian Oceanfront Hale.

We love sharing our condos with families from all over the world so that they can spend time as a family, reconnecting away from the hectic day to day life, and create cherished memories together!

Candace Remington Spinali purchased this condo in 2014

Why Candace Remington Spinali chose Kona Coast

Why did we purchase this Kona Oceanfront vacation home? That is an easy question to answer ~ THE VIEW! We also own another condo at Banyan Tree, #204 since 2007. We love the Kona Oceanfront~ the water clarity for snorkeling/scuba diving, the restaurants, the people who live there, the convenient location of Banyan Tree! Someday in the next few years, Michael and Candace hope to reside on The Big Island! It is truly a special place that we hold near and dear to our hearts. We have so many happy family memories of bringing our two sons here since they were just little guys. We hope that the memories you create on the Big Island are as special as they are for us!

What makes this condo unique

Why did we fall in love with our Kona oceanfront condo? Easy to answer, THE VIEW! Once you see the view, you will understand why. It is breathtaking! From the time you open the front door, you will walk into a brand new condo with one of the best ocean views you have ever seen! We have a 'must have list' ~ the master bedroom must have have an ocean view as well as a king bed (Michael is very tall). We like large, open spaces that allow our family to be together comfortably. ( Seating for everyone ) The pool has to be oceanfront and have a view. With Banyan 301, you get all that and more.

A Slice of Paradise on the Kona Coast

  • 5 of 5

The description does not do this condo justice. Everything about the unit is top notch. The furnishings are new and beautiful. It truly looks like a model home. The cleaning staff does a superb job, as the unit was spotless after they were finished. This unit is truly "ocean front". Many claim to be, but this one delivers! One of our favorite features was the master bedroom, which is on the ocean side of the unit. Hearing the waves gently crash against the lava rock below lulled us to sleep each and every night.

Candace is a jewel to work with. Every inquiry was answered promptly and courteously. She is on top of everything, from reservation to returning of your security deposit.

Great location, just a few miles south of Kona Town. Great underground parking. A small store across the street suitable for filling the need for a snack or refreshments. You can not go wrong at Banyan Tree #301 and Candace.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind review! I truly appreciate the time you took out of your busy daily schedule to write such kind words~ To lay in the master bedroom on that comfy pillow top king bed, to gaze out the windows at the beautiful ocean. and to hear the sound of the waves rolling in toward the shoreline, all while drinking a great cup of Kona coffee .... paradise heaven! You are absolutely right, staying in a condo located directly on the ocean is special and should be on everyone's bucket list to try at least once in their lifetime ~ Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Lovely condo, beautifully appointed with exceptional view from the lanai.

  • 5 of 5

There are so many glowing reviews I feel like I am repeating them. I would like to say that if you choose this condo you will be very happy. To begin with one can not ask for a nicer more helpful person to correspond with than Candace, the owner. From our arrival to departure and now home everything went smoothly. The condo is lovely, very nicely decorated, exceptionally clean, comfortable beds. I was a little concerned about noise because of being right on Alii drive and next to a spot where surfers hang out. Neither was a problem. The surfers were quiet and polite. Even though there is a lot of traffic on Alii drive we did not hear it at all. The grounds including the parking garage were kept very clean all the time. The view and sound you see and hear from the lanai was superb. Watching turtles, dolphins, surfers, and at times some good size waves was a real thrill. We saw some gorgeous sunsets also. A perfect place all the way around. We have been to the big island many times, it is our favorite. The snorkeling is fabulous if you like that. A final note is we have stayed in many condos around the Big Island, some very expensive condos and they have ALL had bugs of some kind. We excepted it as being in a tropical setting. There was not one, NOT ONE bug in Candaces' place. Her condo was our favorite among all of us who travel together. Thank you Candace for a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your amazing review! It made me so happy to hear that your stay was a great one. Banyan Tree is such a special little complex that never feels busy and couldn't be any closer to the ocean unless it was in the ocean! Probably the reason why the view is so jaw dropping and knocks your flip flops right off! The Big Island has amazing water clarity for snorkelers/divers. I am so glad that you had a chance to see the amazing sea life under that gorgeous blue, blue, blue water! So, so happy for your visit and I look forward to your return someday.

Million Dollar View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo from 3/28/16 - 4/6/16. We have been to Hawaii several times and never had a view like this one. It was neat to sit on lanai in the morning and watch the surfers. The unit was very nice and well equipped. Everything that you could need. Great location and reserved parking. Candace was a delight to work with. Very helpful and responds very promptly. We recommend this property and are looking forward to our next visit..

Owner's Response: Mahalo Ed and Diane for sharing your review! I truly appreciate the time you took out of your daily schedule. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed that view!

(No stress here) I enjoyed meeting you over the phone and I look forward to your return. Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Wonderful in every way

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic condo with an unbelievable view. You are truly right there on the water directly in front of Banyans surf break. Candace was a fantastic communicator and made sure every questions was answered and that everything was ready for our visit. She sent lots of great info about the island and surrounding area. The condo was very nicely furnished and had everything we needed, including snorkel gear, nice boogie boards, cooler, beach umbrella and beach chairs. Da Poke Shack is right down the street and is delicious. I would definitely return to this condo on another trip.

We loved this Condo. It was amazing to wake up to the ocean in the morning and watch the sun set. Clean and a great location for exploring the Big Island.

Great service from Candice.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Doug and Lesley for taking time to submit your review. The view at the beginning of the day watching the sunrise and highlight the waves as it rises over the Kona mountains until the spectacular sunsets as the surfers continue to show their talent and the turtles swimming about near the shoreline, continually amaze me at how beautiful the view is throughout the day. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and I hope to have you back! Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Excellent property!!

  • 5 of 5

The property description was accurate and we were very happy with our choice. The home was very comfortable with all of the amenities you could as for. A great property for a family. We enjoyed the sunset and views from the decks. Sunsets to die for. We also liked the surfing activity and watched as many as 15 surfers battle the waves. We had a great time in Hawaii and we always looked forward to coming "home" after a day at the beach or from visiting the sites.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking time out of your busy schedule and vacation catch up to write such a wonderful review! The lanai is definitely the happy place to be when visiting Hawaii. It is hard to describe in words how magical the setting truly is. I love to sit in the "directors" chairs (they are bar height for a reason, no staring through bars to watch the surfers) The color palette for sunsets are so beautiful. Sunsets are not to be missed! I am so happy that your stay was a great experience and I look forward to your return. Mahalo nui loa, Candace

Located directly oceanfront in a neighborhood south of downtown Kona; the surrounding area is peaceful, and lush. Amazing sounds of the ocean waves rolling in the Kona Coast shoreline and the views up toward the mauka hills covered with coffee bushes! Some of the best surfers are surfing right in front of The Banyan Tree Complex. There is a small convenience store across the street and Da Poke Shack is located in the hotel adjacent to Banyan Tree. The ocean has amazing clarity in Kona and the snorkeling is spectacular. You can snorkel in front of the condo or go to a protected reef/cove if the waves are too large located 1.5 south of the condo. It is the Kahaluu Beach Park and it is a black sand beach with amazing snorkeling. If peace, quiet, beautiful views are what you desire for your stay on The Big Island, look no further, you have found your vacation home in paradise!
