Our condo is DIRECT OCEANFRONT, BEACHFRONT! You can't get any closer to the ocean than our condo! Maalaea village is a gem with its central location and its fantastic trade winds. They provide a cooling breeze that keeps the temperatures just right, A/C just in case the cross breeze in the unit isn't enough for you. There are ceiling fans in every room also
From the lanai, gaze out and watch the sun rise over Haleakala (House of the Sun), the long dormant 10,000 foot volcano. Watch green sea turtles bobbing up for air and rolling in the surf, even sunning themselves on the beach. In the winter months (Nov-April) you will have a front row seat to breaching whales as they come back to the islands to give birth and nurse their young in the warm Hawaiian waters. In the summer months during a good south swell, you can watch surfers on the legendary surf break “Freight Trains”, the world’s fastest surfable wave.
Beautifully landscaped grounds with a heated pool will make any stress you have brought with you melt away. Slip into to the pool and enjoy the ocean view while you relax in the Maui sun.
Our condo has beautifully plastered walls, used for its natural insulation as well its beautiful look, keeps the cool air in and the hot air out. During our remodel we added some great features.....
The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, Sub-Zero refrigerator and is fully equipped with cooking utensils, pots, pans, blender and all of the other basic supplies to comfortably enjoy cooking and eating in. There is also a great BBQ area oceanfront so you can enjoy the view while you cook up some delicious food!
Our Master Suite is styled to resemble a luxury hotel. We use 100% white cotton 550 thread count sheets, king size pillow top mattress king size down pillows (hyper allergenic upon request). You will be climbing into heaven after a day of exploring our stunning island.
Our bathrooms are beautifully tiled with a clean updated and stylish look. 100% cotton white bath towels and hand towels are of course provided.
Enjoy a meal on the private lanai or just sit out and enjoy the view with some Maui grown coffee.
At the end of our cul-de-sac is Sugar Beach, 3-4 minute walk from the unit, the longest stretch of sandy beach on Maui. 5 miles of secluded sand to walk, run and beachcomb. You won’t find any crowds here because access to the beach is protected from the road by the bird-filled-ponds of Kealia Wildlife Refuge. It is so amazing to walk this beach and literally feel like you have it all to yourself!
A 5 minute walk in the opposite direction takes you to Maalaea Harbor where you will find a small grocery store, deli, craft market, restaurants and the Maui Ocean Center (Maui’s #1 tourist attraction), the Pacific Whale Foundation, miniature golf, shopping and most of the ocean activities available on Maui (sunset dinner cruises, deep sea fishing, snorkeling tours & whale watching).
Centrally located Maalaea, makes getting anywhere on the island easy. 15 minutes from the airport, a 5 minute drive south and you are in the long village of Kihei and a bit further, the resorts of Wailea. Twenty minutes to the west is the old whaling village of Lahaina, with it’s magnificent Banyan Tree and shopping galleries. You couldn’t be in a better location to explore all Maui has to offer.

Lovely and well-appointed
We had everything we needed for a lovely stay. The home was decorated nicely and had all we needed for dishes, towels, etc. Plan to hang your clothes to dry, however - the combo washer/dryer wasn't very efficient as a dryer. Plenty of hangars and closet space to hang-dry, though, so no real trouble, just a small surprise.
Property was well kept, very beautiful. The pool was nice. No one hung out at the beach!
My husband and i stayed here in September 2017 on our honeymoon. Location is great! The condo is very nicely decorated. How ever, i did read all the REVIEWS before our stay and they were all pretty much TRUE! It's not really a "luxury" condo when you walk in and notice the floor is DIRTY and in the bathroom of all places. It was DISCUSTING and to top it off there wasnt any toliet paper either. When you spend top dollar and rent a "luxury" condo it should be spotless and there should be toilet paper!! So needless to say the overall cleanliness of the condo was in question. I started wondering if the shower was clean, if the sheets were washed ect. Ect. I read in a couple of the reviews that the walls were dirty and that was true, also there was blood stains on the pillow cases, also true. It was GROSS!!! Another huge disappointment is the laundry machine was a washer and dryer in one. The dryer cycle took 3 hours to dry your clothes. By the time you took them out our clothes were destroyed. Imagine what would happen to your clothes if you left them in the dryer for 3 hours! So again we improvised and dryed a lot of our clothes and towels on the patio outside. I did enjoy having a full kitchen but i washed everything before i used it. The beach was Rocky and seamed dangerous. We never seen anyone hanging out there. We had a car and drove to other beaches every day, Black Rock beach was our favorite we seen turtles all the time there!! We thought we'd spend more on a nice "luxury" place to stay since we were celebrating our honeymoon but next time we rent a condo in Maui we definitely figured out we don't need to spend that much just for a place to lay our head at night to sleep. There are other nice cheaper condos for like $125 -$150 a night in this building that we will consider renting next time we come back.
Great location on the island
This condo is located on the center of the west shore and is no more than 30 minutes from just about anywhere you want to go north, south, or east (except Hana or the top of Haleakala, of course). Better for adults since there is no real beach access off the property - we like the quiet. Walk to Ma'alaea harbor (boat excursions) and the general store. Reliable internet. Ground floor location makes everything easy. Trade winds blow through and cool condo nicely - didn't need to run A/C a single time.
One issue - the clothes washer/dryer does not dry clothes completely - they come out still somewhat damp. We just hang them up and then head for our snorkeling spot. This is a small minus compared to the many pluses of this location.
Awesome Maui Vacation
Overall a very nice condo. Clean, very quite and nice grounds.
The listing description was accurate. Good location. A beautiful beach a short walk away.
I would recommend this property . I only have one comment ... the refrigerator runs constantly. I think it might need to be repaired.

Enjoyed our stay
Overall my husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Banyans. The view from our condo couldn't be beat and the regular condominium tenants we interacted with were very pleasant and friendly. The location was fantastic at only 15 minutes from the airport and around 20 minutes from Lahaina and Kihei for shopping and dining! The local Beach Bums restaurant in Maalaea was tasty and convenient too. The small, rocky beach front was nice for beachcombing and we saw some sea turtles at the nearby sandy beach. We also really enjoyed the use of the pool and hot tub and took advantage of them regularly. The biggest bummer there was that the pool and hot tub were not lit up with fun, colored lights as pictured.
The condo itself was a bit more worn in than we had expected- a little Mr. Clean eraser could go a long way with all the scuff marks on the walls! The dryer never quite dried our clothing no matter what setting we tried and we ended up hang drying most everything. A second set of beach towels would have been helpful during our stay. And, a Swiffer Wet Jet mop would have been nice to clean up the floors during our stay- a broom can only do so much.
To those looking to stay in a condo in Maui I would recommend it. We loved the location and really enjoyed the use of the pool and hot tub. My biggest recommendation to prospective guests would be in regards to the checkout. If you, like us, have an evening flight out of Maui then the 11am checkout leaves you with several hours to kill before your flight and nowhere to store your luggage but your car. The condo does not offer luggage storage and, as such, I would recommend paying for a late checkout time if you have the extra cash for it. We did not and ended up leaving our bags in the car while spending the afternoon at the nearby Maui Brewing Company.
Ma'alaea Banyans is located on the longest stretch of white beach in Maui and directly behind a turtle refuge. Here's some of our favorite activities: Golfing, Fishing, Hiking, Windsurfing, Paddle Boarding, Kayaking, Miniature Golf, Rock Climbing, Maui Ocean Center Aquarium, Snorkling, ATV Tours, Helicopter Ride.
