Jasmine purchased this condo in 2012
We fell in love with the Maui Banyan on one of our many visits to Maui, it is truly the best location for a little bit of everything Maui has to offer. Across the street from the best snorkeling, walking distance to excellent restaurants and shopping.
Centrally located near beaches, shopping restaurants, 24 hour security on site. Very quiet yet close to action of best beach on South Maui.
The location of this unit was great but we were very disappointed and a little disgusted by how dirty it was.I hope they get a new cleaning lady! The floor made our feet black, there was sand in the drawers in one bedroom, crumbs in one of the beds, hair and dust in the bathroom, goggles and papers under the beds in the room with double beds. We had to clean it ourselves. As well the deck hadn't been cleaned at all - sand, dust and kids finger prints all over the glass...again we had to clean it ourselves. As well, the faucets in both bathrooms leak, the towel rack in the master bath is coming out of the wall so we couldn't use it and the faucet in the kitchen is loose. We were offered 25% off our 'next' visit but we would not rent this again as they should have offered us 25% off this visit!
This was our second time in Kihei and were pleased with the accommodations, service and location! I agree the cleanliness leaves a little to be desired (bathrooms mostly) but everything else was great!! The owner graciously allowed us a late check out which was wonderful bonus since our flight was late in the evening.
The beds were comfortable! Our 10 and 12 year old daughters loved their own space, and the lanai was perfect for morning coffee and an evening glass of wine.
We also used the washer and dryer and had no problems with noise, which was nice since it is located in close proximity to the master bedroom!
There were coolers, beach toys, towels and all kinds of great amenities!
Thank you for sharing your vacation home! We'll be back.
Having stayed at this particular resort in different units twice before, we were confident about the location being central to all the activities we had planned. Close to the pool, the beach and shopping, we were pleased to see that the resort grounds were as beautiful as ever.
This unit was for us only satisfactory. The décor and furnishings are tired and need replacing. The room corners and baseboards should have a good cleaning. In the 2 bathrooms, the 2 fan vents were filthy with dust particles and other material built up and hanging down. My husband gave them a quick cleaning because he felt the air would circulate better. The last renters left some dirty pots for us to clean and the 2 large t-fal frying pans should be replaced as the t-fal is badly worn off. The drier squeals loudly when used and for that reason, we didn't try to do laundry in the evenings because we were afraid the people upstairs could hear the noise. Finally, the towels smelled musty and of mildew, as though they had been left in the washer for an extended period of time before drying. They had to be washed before they could be used.
Perhaps the problem lies with the cleaning service; I don't know! As Canadians with a dollar that falls 30% below the American dollar, we paid a lot of money for a unit that we can only rate as fair.
Great value as advertised! Owner has taken the opportunity to address small inconveniences in previous reviews. We found new cutlery and dishes for all our family and our dinner guests. Centrally located opposite Kamaole Beach II just a 1 minute stroll to see the best sun set in Maui. Easy access, great place for young family. Pool very close by. South looking view was somewhat obscured by foliage but did give privacy in return. Property was in good, clean appearance. Very well stocked with all essential needs to cook all meals in your own well light kitchen. Very quiet, yet so close to everything. Local contact to address any issues was convenient. I would recommend this property to any one with larger family.
My husband, daughter, son in law an new baby grandson stayed in this lovely condo and it was absolutely perfect. Having the second bedroom and bathroom was ideal . Having an in suite washer and dryer was great especially with a baby, and made for very little laundry when getting home. One of the best beaches in Kihei is right across the street, We packed up the boogie boards, umbrellas and chairs that were provided in a wagon that was there to make the trip across the street even easier. At night a quick walk across the street provided a beautiful spot to watch the sunset. The condo was located in an ideal area to walk to many great restaurants, bars and the flea market. We enjoyed pool time everyday at a lovely pool area and took advantage of bar-b-q-ing pool side several nights. We cooked in several times as well and did not find we were short of a single thing. Steve & Jasmine were wonderful owners and very helpful with any and all questions we had. It was a very nice clean well maintained property, we loved every minute and hated to see our vacation end.
We just returned from a 10 day vacation on Maui at the Banyan. The condo was accurately described by the photos. We had two adults, a 16 year old daughter and and 18 year old son. Having a second bathroom, 2 queen beds and a t.v. in the guest bedroom was great for them. A few things that kept us from giving this condo an excellent rating are the lack of privacy in the master (the doors that separate it from the living/dining area are frosted glass, and definitely do not dampen the sound from the living areas. There is no A/C in the master, and when it is too hot to have the sliding door open (which it was the whole time we were there) it is uncomfortably hot. The main area and the second bedroom do have A/C. The seating to chat or watch t.v. in the main living area is not comfortable for 4 adults. The coach is small, and there is only one arm chair. None are particularly comfy. A family of 4 or more would need a few more sets of silverware, cereal bowls (the dishes are mismatched), serving dishes and griddle. Though a view was referred to in the description, we found that the foliage has grown to block any sort of views. The windows face the side of the property facing one of two swimming pools. The grounds are well kept. The pool is right behind the building for convenient access. Though pools are small, they are clean, have clean bathrooms and clean, nice grills. This unit is on the second floor at the back/top of the property which was comforting with the threat of Flossie which came over us during our stay. The beach is a short hike to the front of the property and across the street. The beaches that run in front of the property are some of the nicest we saw on the island - beautiful, fine sand. The owners responded quickly each time we made contact. Breakfast at Kehei Caffe is delicious, and the ambiance is very "Kehei". The washer and dryer were large capacity and worked well. The water from the tap smells very chlorinated, so you may want to drink bottled water. If you plan to be out after 8:00 PM be sure to take the outer door card key they supply to open the door to the outside of the building. We didn't realize we needed a card to get in and were locked out our first night after taking a dip in the pool! The security guard let us in so it was only a small inconvenience. Overall this is a nice condo, if you want a nice quiet location it's perfect, if you want a view you will be disappointed.
Excellent location in quiet part of the complex, close to swimming pool and tennis courts.
