Oceanfront, 2 Bedrooms, 2 bath condominium, AC, large lanai, stunning ocean view
Breathtaking Oceanfront location! Located directly oceanfront at Banyan's surf break, yet located away from the beach park to offer a tranquil hideaway! A tropical hidden gem~ so quiet, so peaceful. No crowds ever found here! Tucked away in a quiet area, away from all life's craziness.
Banyan Tree 301 is a tropical dream Hawaiian Bucket List Destination. A Hawaiian oceanfront paradise, completely remodeled with breathtaking ocean views and AC! Your flip flops are guaranteed to be knocked right off from the moment you open the front door! The ocean view is breathtaking! And you are so close to the ocean! 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 vacation rental. 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. ( An
d so that you can completely open the dishwasher) We moved the small water heater out of the kitchen (making more storage in kitchen! ) and moved it to the back of the condo and added a larger water heater - so no running out of hot water here! Sleep like a baby on the new pillow top King Size Bed in Master Bedroom. (There are sliding pocket doors that close for extra privacy, separating the master bedroom from living area. They recess into the wall when opened)
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.
The lanai is one of the largest at Banyan Tree and there are two bar height tables with five bar height captains chairs. (No looking through bars here to see that beautiful ocean view! ) The whole family can eat outside together and watch the surfers, sunsets, turtles, tropical fish, and whales in season.
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. There is an elevator that services the building and BT 301 has its own reserved parking space in the covered garage. (Easy in, easy out!)
There is FREE password protected WiFi. We have over 200 channels including several Premium movie channels. We provide boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrella, coolers, beach towels, and even sand toys for your outings to all of those beautiful Big Island beaches.
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 our Hawaiian Oceanfront Hale.

About Candace Remington Spinali
Aloha! We are Michael and Candace Spinali from Tucson, Arizona. (We recently relocated from sunny San Diego) Michael is a native from San Diego and Candace grew up in Michigan. We enjoy our little slice of paradise at Banyan Tree and we are very active as owners of a vacation rental. We have been married for 29 years and we have two sons. Our oldest son is Michael and he is enrolled in graduate school at SDSU for Electrical/Computer Engineer Major. Our youngest son Cole attends The Wildcat Academy of Engineering at The University of Arizona. (Thus the reason we live in Tucson and left America's Finest City San Diego) We feel very blessed to own our vacation home and to be able to share it with families from around the world!
Candace Remington Spinali purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Candace Remington Spinali chose Hōlualoa
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 chose the Big Island Oceanfront because the water clarity for snorkeling/scuba diving is incredible, so many amazing restaurants, we love the people who live there, the convenient location of Banyan Tree, and we especially love NO CROWDS! 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 running around in diapers. 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 AC cools rapidly and is a de-humidifier for the entire condo. Just close all the windows, open the doors to all rooms that you would like cooled, and sit back and enjoy the view in comfort! There are also ceiling fans and tropical breezes for those days when AC is not necessary. The pool has to be oceanfront and have a view. With Banyan 301, you get all that and more.

Sensational Vacation Rental
The best vacation, ever! Wow, what a beautiful condo that is located right on the ocean and I mean on the ocean! Sparkling clean and decorated and furnished to the 9’s, Candace’s vacation rental is the bomb. The kitchen has every appliance and gadget known to man. You want to make frozen Mai Tai’s, there is a high speed blender. You want to BBQ steaks, there is a gas grill by the gorgeous pool. The place is vacation nirvana. Washer/Dryer, dishwasher, secure parking, big televisions with tons of cable channels, FREE long distance to Canada…WOW!!! The atmosphere is true Hawaii, swaying palm trees, crystal blue water, white sand. I traveled with a group of three families and we all stayed at Banyan Tree. The location is perfect, not too close to town (very quiet) but close enough to still enjoy all of the fantastic restaurants and shopping that old Kona has to offer. If you book at Banyan Tree, definitely try to get a unit on the second or third floor. The people on the 4th floor were always complaining about the heat and the 1st floor is parking. Our unit was cool and comfortable and had wonderful trade winds blowing through all day and night. I just can’t say enough about Banyan Tree and Candace the owner. You will not be disappointed renting from Candace.
Mahalo Jan for taking time out of your daily schedule to write such a kind review! I also love that Banyan Tree is close to charming downtown Kona yet far enough away ( 2 miles ) to be secluded and uncrowded. I love the setting, the ocean view, and the sandy coves located nearby. ( Walking distance! Wahoo! ) It is a great place to unwind, slow down, and enjoy old Hawaii as it should be! You were an amazing guest that I hope to have return someday!
Mahalo Nui Loa,
Most awesome place to stay on The Big Island
Let me just start by saying WOW!! The stunning view of the water is well worth the visit to The Banyan Tree alone!! Candace from the point of booking kept in touch with me, be it helping with a rental car to grocery store suggestions. She went out of her way to email and make sure we were ok when we had some bad weather forecast, she’s not just an awesome condo owner, but an awesome human being..... Thanks Candace!! The condo itself is situated perfect in my opinion, out of the Kailua-Kona hustle and bustle, but close enough you could walk to town for a few drinks. The Banyan Mart across the street was very handy, and the employees there treated us like locals from the first visit. Candace has this condo loaded to the nines with anything you may need as well. I am already trying to figure out when I can make it back for another few weeks!! Thanks for everything Candace!!
Shane your kind words are so appreciated and they truly warmed my heart! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay AND THAT VIEW! You were beyond awesome as a guest and I would welcome your return!
Mahalo Nui Loa,
We truly loved our stay at Banyan Tree condo #301! Just as the pictures and other reviews stated! We missed whale season but were greeted several days with sea turtles playing right outside. The lanai was perfect for morning coffee, watching the surfers, the sunset and those sea turtles. Just down the road is a great beach with soft sand and good waves for boogie boarding or just enjoying playing in the ocean. A little further down the road is another great location for snorkeling. Lifeguards are on duty at both locations. It was a short drive into the quaint town for shopping. We enjoyed so many activities on the Big Island that it is currently our favorite Hawaiian island. Never found ourselves sitting in traffic to reach our destination. We would gladly rent from Candace again! You won’t be disappointed. Great price, great location, great atmosphere and great service from Candace! Mahalo for opening your condo for vacationers to enjoy the Big Island with the comforts of home!
Mahalo Dawn for taking the time out of your "crazy back from vacation schedule" to write your review. I truly appreciate it. So happy that you enjoyed your lanai time and all the beautiful scenery. (Turtles, surfers, tropical fish ) You were amazing guests that I hope to have back!
Mahalo Nui Loa,
Fabulous Oceanfront Stay!
Our first trip to Hawaii and the Big Island started out with a wonderful stay right on the ocean in this 2 bedroom condo. And it is RIGHT ON the ocean. The sound of breaking surf on the lava and the view all the time of the surfers and boogie boarders really set the tone for an island getaway. The Banyan Tree is comfortable and has everything you need to explore the Big Island. Next door is a surf shop for rentals and advice. Next to that is Da Poke Shack for fresh seafood and pulled pork,,,delicious! Across the street is a Market that has just enough essentials (including Kona beer!) at a good price. Great beaches and snorkel spots are just south of the Condo and town is just north so you are out of the hustle and bustle but still very close. Can't thank Candace enough for her attention before and after the trip. The condo, by the way, had snorkel equipment, boogie boards, a raft, and beach chairs to use. Saves a lot on rentals and they were in good condition There is reserved parking and a pool with nice lounge chairs overlooking the surf. If you are looking for a more "at home" feel to a stay in Hawaii versus the resorts this is a fabulous choice!
Mahalo Jeffrey for taking the time to write your review. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Banyan Tree! I encourage all of my guests to get out of the condo ( yes, that means you would have to leave the lanai and that gorgeous view ) and go see a few of those Big Island beautiful beaches. And what is more encouraging is that you have comfortable Tommy Bahama chairs/umbrella, coolers, beach towels, and boogie boards. All Free, which who doesn't like to save money and be comfortable at the beach?
You were a great guest Jeffrey that I hope to have back!
Mahalo Nui Loa,
Great location right on the ocean!
We liked everything about this property! Amazing condo right on the ocean! Nicely decorated with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Property grounds were nice offering a pool and lounge chairs for overlooking the ocean. Designated Covered parking was extremely convenient. Located just a few minutes from Kona close to shopping, restaurants, sites of interest and beaches. Candace takes great pride in her unit and was very hospitable and communication was great. We would stay here again if on the big island!
Mahalo Jeanne for taking the time to write your review. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. The oceanfront swimming pool at Banyan Tree has one of the most amazing views in all of Hawaii. You can watch the sunset, the surfers, whales in season, and never miss anything! Having a designated parking space at the beach is a rarity and it sure makes your vacation much more easy that is for sure. You were an awesome guest and I certainly would love to have you back!
Mahalo Nui Loa,
We loved,loved,loved this condo! Candace has been so wonderful and easy to work with! The setting is breathtaking! Would highly recommend it to anyone!
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! This is the perfect Kona oceanfront location close to downtown Kona, as well as the Keauhou shopping center, with all of the fantastic restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, but also several grocery stores, WalMart and even a Costco close by. You are directly oceanfront, with nothing between you and the blue Pacific ocean. Unobstructed, panoramic ocean views.The Banyan Tree is centrally located on the sunny side of the Big Island in the town of Kailua-Kona. Right next door is a small sandy beach where the local surfers enter the water to access the famed Banyan surf site to surf and boogie board.
Historic Alii Drive is right out front and great for an walk along the ocean. Magic Sands beach is less than a mile away. Kahalu'u Beach is only two miles and is an easy to access snorkeling spot where you can see beautiful reefs and abundant sea life. It is also a friendly place to learn to surf. Perfect beaches such as Hapuna Beach and Kua Bay are to the north and Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park and Captain Cooks monument lie to the south. Also to the south is Two Step Beach, which is located just north of Pu’u Honua O Honaunau National Historic Park, which is a perfect snorkeling spot to explore the crystal clear waters of Kona’s coast. The famous Da Poke Shack is within a block and within a few miles there are tasty restaurants including including Jackie Reys, Splashers Grill, Island Lava Java, TJ's Barbecue and the Fish Hopper. Suoer J's which has been visited by Guy Fieri is just don the road. KTA Supermarket is only a few miles south on Alii Drive in Keauhou. Snorkel Bob's, an easy place to rent your snorkel gear, is also blocks away.
Some of the best surfers are surfing right in front of The Banyan Tree Complex. There is a small convenience store across the street. 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!
