Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, sleeps 4.

Don't miss out on our newly remodeled 1 br, 2ba unit directly across the street from one of Maui's best family beaches, Kamaole 2.

Our unit has recently undergone a facelift with remodeled kitchens and bathrooms, new full sized washer and dryer, new painting and drapes. The kitchen boasts new appliances, kitchen ware and small appliances.

We are located in building G/H, which houses the registration and concierge desks. An elevator takes you to the second floor, and a luggage cart is handy for use while you unpack your car directly in front of the building. We have our own designated parking space directly across the driveway from the office in a large parking garage.

A king sized bed sleeps two comfortably, and a pull out sofa couch can accommodate two more. Two bathrooms keeps everyone from running over the top of one another, and the kitchen island and dining table combined with the lanai table provide plenty of seating options for everyone. We have gone out of our way to ensure that everything you need to cook or grill your meals is on hand, and have a book of our favorite places on the Island to give you suggestions on great off-property dining and activities.

The Maui Banyan complex is located within walking distance of great food, ranging from coffee and plate lunches to waterfront fine dining. Groceries, wine, and spirits can be purchased at the Whaler in the neighboring Rainbow Mall, where you can also find Kihei Aloha Ice Cream & Yogurt and the famous Cinnamon Roll Fair. Natural and organic foods can be found three blocks north, next to Maui Tacos and Snorkel Bob's. Great snorkeling and swimming can be had just across the street at Kamaole Beach II, but more adventuresome types can rent kayaks and stand up paddleboards a block away. Maui Dive Shop is located nearby, and great beach dives can be found within a 10 minute drive. Surfing and paddleboard lessons, as well as a children's park are both located a mile north at Kalama Park.

Just a 5 minute drive south of the complex is Wailea, with fine dining, golfing, beaches, and shopping.

For visitors wanting to go on one of the many whale watching excursions, Maalea Harbor is about 30 minutes away. Maalea is also where you can find the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium and family fun park with mini golf and bumper boats.

For groceries, most visitors will probably stop at the Costco which is right next to the Kahalui airport for major staples. Whole Foods has recently moved into Kahalui, and Safeway and Foodland are both a quick drive away for day to day needs.

We enjoy making a road trip to Lahaina, which is about 45 minutes away. Other day trips include the famous Road to Hana, heading up to the Haleakala Volcano, checking out Paia, or visiting the Iao Needle near Wailuku.

About Richard Tuott

We are retired schoolteachers and commercial fishermen from Alaska who have been coming to Maui for almost 30 years. After our third snowstorm in the month of April, we decided that coming to Maui every February wasn't going to be enough to keep us warm, so we decided to buy a condo in our favorite home away from home!

Richard Tuott purchased this condo in 2013

Why Richard Tuott chose Maui

We have been coming to Kihei since 1988, and after staying in many of the different condo complexes up and down the beach, we found the perfect place to relax at the Maui Banyan. The grounds are well maintained, people are extremely friendly, and the location directly across from Kamaole Beach II all combine to make the Maui Banyan ideal for family vacations. Our grandchildren, ages 7 and 6, love Kamaole Beach because of it's gentle slope and kid-friendly waves, and the grounds at the Maui Banyan are great to chase geckos and lizards. They've also fallen in love with the incredible cinnamon rolls in the morning and night time ice cream cones that can be found at the neighboring Rainbow Mall a short walk away.

Maui Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Rich & Peg, Thanks for giving us the feeling of being at home, when we first walked into your lovely Condo it felt Like it was our home.. It has made our vacation so much more enjoyable having such a comfortable place to live and enjoy.. You have provided all the amenities a person could ask for while on vacation or an extended stay.. The location being so close to the water was perfect for us and your suggestion of swimming early and driving in the afternoon worked very well for us.. We hope to return to Maui in the future and be able to stay at your lovely Condo once again..

Fantastic condo!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at many condos throughout Europe and the United States and we have NEVER been in one as great as Rich & Peg's condo in Maui. It was in perfect condition and stocked with so many items that you don't usually find in a rental. The cupboards were full of all kinds of spices/condiments, travel/pocket books, board games and toys for children, a variety of toiletries in each washroom and everything one would need or want for the beach--chairs, towels, water toys, snorkel gear, boogie boards, etc. We were overwhelmed with all the extras in the condo and the welcome chocolates on the table. There was also a binder left for guests with many suggestions for site seeing and restaurants in the area that was a great guide for us. From the moment I contacted Rich through VRBO, I felt comfortable renting from him. He kept in touch until we arrived and even phoned us while we were in Maui to welcome us and to see if there was anything we needed. Wonderful vacation!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay in Rich and Peg's lovely condo. It is extremely well maintained and feels like home as soon as you walk in the door. The welcome gift of coffee and chocolates is a lovely touch.

Everything we needed was supplied including paper towels, cleaning supplies, laundry products, coolers and much more. While we didn't use the water sport equipment supplied, they are available for the avid water lover. The kitchen is well stocked with enough dishes and cutlery.

The unit is quiet, the bed very comfortable and the dim out drapes keep the condo dark enough to sleep comfortably (a plus if you need a dark room to sleep in). Both bathrooms are very nicely designed with big showers. The raised air conditioner works well and keeps the unit at a comfortable temperature.

The washer and dryer are new front loaders and work well. You can pack lighter because of this. The expanded lanai makes it very comfortable to sit and enjoy being outside. The outside table and chairs are very nice.

The condo has a dedicated parking stall that we enjoyed using. This was a definite plus.

Rich checked in with us a couple of times during our stay just to see if everything was going well. This was very much appreciated. We will definitely be staying in this unit in the near future. We highly recommend it and give it a 5 star rating easily.

Thanks so much for letting us enjoy your condo once again.

Mahalo many times over for sharing your Maui home with us Rich and Peg.

We really appreciated how well designed and maintained and stocked things were, from the extra bathroom to the washer and dryer to the king size bed right down to the ample water toys and kitchen supplies - it's very obvious that this is your home, not simply a rental property.

We've stayed in a few condos on Maui and yours is by far the best, and so is your attention to making sure all was well by calling us a couple of times.

We'll be back for sure.

Wonderful Experience! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time at the Maui Banyan and first time staying in this condo. Rich and Peg are wonderful hosts and made our vacation plans so easy! Their condo had everything we could possibly need - the bed is very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped (even had soap, paper towels, plastic wrap, etc.) and lots of beach/pool supplies (towels, chairs, snorkel gear, coolers...). The condo location is nice and quiet as it doesn't face the parking garage. The Banyan's pools and BBQ's are well maintained and a beautiful beach is just across the street. The sunsets are fabulous! Easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. We highly recommend this condo and we're looking forward to returning here next year! Thanks Rich & Peg for a great vacation!

Memorable Maui Trip

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the use of this lovely condo. It was clean and well organized. The owners put a lot of thought into gathering and sharing information on things to do and where to go. There was plenty of supplies at our disposal. Beach towels, boogie boards, snorkeling gear,beach chairs ect. The washer and dryer came in handy We enjoyed it so much and highly recommend this to others interested in renting this condo. The location was great. We were able to walk to a few restaurants and stores. We took uber a few times to go further into town and it was very reasonable. We would definitely rent this condo again :)

Kamaole Beach II
Car: recommended

We love snorkeling the reefs at nearby Kamaole beaches 2 and 3. There is a wonderful variety of fish, and turtles and eels are often seen. The coral formations are fantastic. Walking the beach at sunset allows opportunity to view Maui's amazing sunset.

We often visit the little town of Makawao which has wonderful galleries and quaint restaurants. An early visit to the general store might reward you with delicious cream puffs, a delicacy that is highly sought after. A stop at Sherry Reeve's gallery usually finds the artist in residence and at work on her latest project. You will be sure to find a lovely souvenier of your Maui stay. You will also have an opportunity to watch glass blowing at the glass shop down the street.

Further down the road is the interesting and historic town of Paia with more shops and good food available.

Near Paia on the road to Hana is Hookipa beach where you can watch the surfers and wind surfers tackle the breathtaking waves.
