The link is located at the bottom of this page in the amenities section, below "Notes" and 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!

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.

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.

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

Location and view are awesome...

  • 5 of 5

Initially I was trying to be closer to Kona. I rented Banyan, however because of the proximity to the water and the reviews. I found nothing even close to it for the price more proximal to Kona. We stayed 2 weeks. As it turned out for us, the location was about perfect. Kona is a small town and you can walk most of it in a half day to orient yourself. After that most of what you are doing is away from Kona. And much of that is south, which make Banyan Trees a perfect jumping off point. The KTA grocery store a few miles south in the Keauhou Shopping Center was the best Grocery in our opinion, and it was just 5 minutes away by Car. You are less than a mile from Magic Sands Beach, one of the best places to relax Ocean side, Though it is very busy over the Holidays. The best part for us was having a front row seat to watch world word class surfers every day.. Amazing. The Condo itself is very well organized and comfortable. It lacks nothing really, that I can think of. The beach Chairs are Backpack beach chairs, so they can hold your stuff if you decide to go check out 609 beach or Pine trees. (Highly recommend) Enjoy! We certainly did.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking time to write a review. I truly appreciate it. The view from the lanai is totally like sitting in front row seating for ESPN Surf Competition viewing! It is spectacular. The lanai comfortably seat six and has a drop dead gorgeous view of the ocean! ( It should is only 15 feet away ) I am so glad you liked the Tommy Bahama chairs. Their are useful and comfortable. ( And I love the fabrics! Way island chic! ) Happy 2017....I hope to have you back. You were all awesome guests! Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Excellent accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Banyon Tree 301. The condo was very comfortable and provided everything we needed for our two week stay. Large master bedroom is right off the lanai; leave the door or window open to fall asleep to waves hitting the shore. Surfers all day in the water right off the lanai; fun to watch any time of day. Location was very convenient to most things yet away from the busy north Ali'i area. Candace was great to work with. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review! Having a master bedroom with a comfortable pillowtop King Size bed, an ocean view from your comfortable bed, and hearing the sound of the waves rolling in is always a wonderful way to fall asleep! I am so happy that you enjoyed "The Show" (The surfers!) and that your stay was a great experience. I hope to have you back. Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Having never experienced a VRBO before, we were a little nervous before our arrival. However, true to her word, Candace provided us with a beautifully-decorated, very clean, and perfectly placed condo in Kona. Her emails to us before we arrived contained all the information that we needed to have a truly relaxing vacation. This information included beaches to visit, free things to do in the area, and many different types of restaurants to try (they were all good!). The condo has all new appliances, comfortable furniture and dreamy beds where we were able to fall asleep to the sound of the waves right outside our windows. The only downside to us is that the condo is not air-conditioned and it was very humid while we were there, but it did cool off enough in the evenings that we didn't have any trouble sleeping. We would still recommend this condo to anyone looking to have an extremely pleasant experience, and given the chance to return to the Big Island, we would definitely stay at this condo again. Thank you, Candace, for helping to make our vacation one to remember!

Very nice condo. The closet full of beach equipment was great. We arrived right ahead of the tropical storm, which caused all of Kona to be very hot and humid. Without the storm, the normal breezes kept the condo very comfortable.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to submit your review! So happy to hear that you were comfortable while staying in the condo despite the outdoor conditions due to an approaching storm. I know for sure you saw some amazing surfing going on right in front of the condo. The silver lining of a tropical storm - Big Waves - awesome surfing! We hope to have you back.

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. 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!
