Great location and amenities.
This was our second time staying at the Maui Banyan and we love the location. The pools and hot tubs are great. The BBQ areas by the pools are ideal for cooking meals and the covered eating areas are great as well. Our only complaint about our unit was the air conditioner. It was extremely noisy and the fact that it was not to be used at less than 72 degrees meant that our room was warmer than we would like for sleeping. The access to the outside at ground level was also ideal.
Aloha and happy to hear you had a nice stay in our condo. The A/C unit in the condo was just installed. It is only 2 month old. The reason for the temperature request at 72 degrees is because we have found that some guests set the A/C very low and do not turn it off 24/7. As a result the units don't ever have time to cycle off and they tend to freeze and not work well. Living on Maui we find a temperature around 75 to be very comfortable at night, so that is why we suggest setting the temp no lower than 72 degrees. You can lower it if you like but just make sure to turn it off when you are gone for the day that way the unit will work well when you are in the condo. The A/C also has many different settings. You can set the fan on low so that it is more quiet. Hope this helps explain how to use the A/C. My wife and I live five minutes from the property so if you need anything we are here to help make your stay better in anyway.
Central Location Near Beaches
My girlfriend and I had a great time spending 3 nights in this unit! The space, while not enormous, is more than adequate for a couple. There’s a pool in the condo complex, and the building is right across the street from a beach. It’s in a very central location in Kihei, so it’s easy to walking distance to a variety of beaches in Kihei and a short drive to Wailea and Makena. We would stay again.
Cozy & clean property. Walking distance to many restaurants and grocery stores.
Small but comfortable
We had a great time in a very convenient location. Tamara and Steve's place met all of our expectations and we were able to really enjoy Maui on our budget.
Cute cozy condo
We knew it was a smaller unit, more like a hotel room. That didn't bother us. We found the AC unit to be extremely effective by adjusting the settings, taking it off auto and eco modes to get continuous AC. Works really good if you know what you're doing. The patio was nice in the morning drinking our coffee. Having laundry in the unit was a freaking dream. Loved that. I echo a previous review concerning a musty smell in the bathroom. There is no way to turn on the fan if it even works. In my opinion it smells like the shower drain isn't properly vented and it stinks in a weird way. Since the fan doesn't work there seems to be evidence of mold on the ceiling. I'd love to stay there in the future or wholeheartedly recommend as long as that issue is resolved. Honestly that's the only down side. For this reason I gave less stars on cleanliness and only 4 stars overall. It really is a beautiful condo and is in a great location with clean, secure grounds.
Thank you kindly for your input on our condo! Just wanted to let future guests know that we have installed a new bathroom fan that turns on automatically with the light switch (previous fan was insufficient as it serviced the entire building - not just our unit). We plumbed the shower drain and also cleaned the ceiling and bathroom walls with bleach to remove any potential mold - we take guests comments very seriously and we take pride in the cleanliness of our condos. For future guests please be sure to contact us right away with any concerns so we can take care of them before your departure! Hope to have you back again someday.
