Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! 5 Stars!! Your condo is wonderful. I don't know how we will be able to sleep back in ATL. without the sound of the waves! "The Sunset" We've never seen a ore beautiful 'sunset'...thank you for doing all the little extra's to make our vacation AWSOME! The beach chairs, towels, boogi boards (oh boy..the girls loved those), all the cooking utensils a person could ever need! We used the Hawaii Big Island Revealed 4th Edition you recommended everywhere we went! Loved the comments and info you adde. We've stayed in condo's before, but yours by far has the beat. Most condo's will only hold a family of 4 and you've set your's up to hold more comfortably & I have to brag on the resident manager who showed us our first turtle! Thank you sooo much for the 5 star Stay!

Beautiful Condo with Amazing Ocean Views!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Banyan Tree #302. The condo is beautiful decorated and has breathtaking views of the ocean. The condo was well stocked and had everything we needed from kitchen supplies to beach gear - towels, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, and chairs. The tips from Janice and Robert on things to do and places to eat were so helpful. I loved the Big Island Revealed book. So many great tips and advice. The Banyan Tree was very conveniently located for our excursions going north and south along the coast. We enjoyed watching the surfers. We attempted to ride the waves but be warned it is pretty rough out there. If you go out make sure to use the stairs. We went out by the small sandy beach and got caught by the rocks. We saw turtles which was a treat! The only negative is that when we were there it was humid. Even with the windows open and the fans on it would get a little stuffy when we were sleeping. Overall we loved the condo!

Outstanding Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband spent eight wonderful days at the Banyan Tree #302. I can't imagine a nicer place to stay. It was without question the best appointed condo I've ever stayed at, and the view was so wonderful, I could of stayed on the lanai and watched the waves and surfers all day.

I like to run, so a simple step out of the elevator and you are running along the route of famous Ironman competition, two and a half miles down the road and you are surrounded by the beauty of Kona.

It's a great place to refresh your soul and a perfect place to call home base during your Hawaiian adventure.

Bnayon Tree #302 exceeds expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We read all the reviews before booking. All we can say "ditto". The condo exceeded our expectations. We have rented others in the past, but this is the best equipped (from kitchen to beach stuff) that we have ever seen. The owners are responsive and well-organized. From booking to checkout, you knew just what to expect and do, If you want to enjoy the best of the Big Island, this is a great place to start. Mahalo, Janice and Robert, for sharing your beautiful condo with us.

MOST AMAZING CONDO EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed at many condos on each island and have learned that “oceanfront” has a tendency to be over-used a lot, but it’s still Hawai’i so we never cared. However, this trip was planned as an eye-opener for my parents & best friends who are perplexed by our “obsession” for leaving the mainland. So we REALLY wanted to give them that “Wow” factor, but without the city-like Waikoloa area which would also bust the bank!

PROS:

I COULDN’T HAVE BEEN ANY HAPPIER with our decision! When I saw the view at Banyan Tree #302 in person, my mouth literally dropped open! It’s floor to ceiling windows of solid water & horizon views! Only a couple of feet of rock are visible if you hold yourself almost over the railing, which had honu munching on the limu every morning!

The condo can sleep 6. Two in the main bed, a second room with 2 twin beds, & a fold-out bed in the living room which can be privatized by build-in shoji screens that retract into the wall. The kitchen is amazingly stocked, as is the laundry room & bathrooms, which is nice since most condos only leave one-time use sundries. Also, this is the first time that we’ve never rented our own snorkeling equipment, as usually what is offered is old, busted, or limited in sizes. Not the case with Banyan Tree #302! There was almost an obscene amount of snorkel gear, fins, beach towels, swim noodles, boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs, ice chests, etc.

CONS: This is difficult, but I’ll throw a few nit-picks in just to assure people that I’m a real renter

1.) I had the most difficult time getting my ex-surfer father to get off the lanai & stop watching the waves, surfers, & the ocean in general!

2.) Shoji screens, although beautiful, they are paper-thin, and the makai side stays open about 8” or so, so no hanky panky! ;)~

3.) As with EVERY condo on Ali’i Drive, road noise can be an issue for the back bedroom. This was easily alleviated with fans & “noise machine” on the iphone.

This condo had everything you could ask for to live in complete comfort with a million-plus dollar view to boot! There just isn’t enough time in the day to list every amenity about this amazing property! Staying at the Banyan Tree #302 has certainly helped us to realize exactly what we’re in search of when looking for our little piece of paradise! Robert & Janice, our sincerest thanks for sharing your amazing property with my Ohana, and we hope to visit again next year. Mahalo!

Amazing Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This location and condo were just amazing. I can't rave enough about it. I added it onto our family vacation, a little last minute during the planning process so I wasn't sure how it would pan out but with the high ratings I had high expectations. Let's just say, this place far exceeded what I expected. The views are amazing! Literally right over the waves. We even saw whales one early morning (they provide binoculars!!) and the sound of the waves put you to sleep each night. Not only that but this place comes just about fully stocked! Need beach chairs and umbrellas, snorkel gear, towels, sunscreen, bags or a cooler, they have it. The fridge and pantry also come with snacks or seasonings left from other guests so you don't have to go out and buy a whole new thing of salt just for one dinner. Have questions during your stay? Janice and Robert are quick to reply and help you out. Overall, this place made the start of our week long stay on the Big Island an extremely relaxing and enjoyable one. Would definitely stay here again, highly recommend it!!

((However, this location did spoil us and made our expectations extremely high for the rest of the places we stayed on the island...wish we stayed here the entire week.))

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

We planned this family vacation for 3 years and it was 100% worth the wait! Janice was extremely helpful in the planning process and always responsive to any questions we had. The condo was amazing!! The view every morning when waking up is priceless. You couldn't have been any closer to the water. I think most of our pictures came from just sitting out on the lanai at sunset because the view is breathtaking! We loved getting up every morning and watching the surfers and bodyboarders. The condo is clean, nicely decorated, and fully furnished. We were thrilled when we first walked in and saw the huge shelving unit stocked with every beach supply imaginable (flippers, snorkeling gear, towels, chairs, fishing supplies, coolers, etc.) We didn't have to pick up or rent one item during this two week vacation, because the condo has it all! I was even able to do laundry everyday and avoid the hassle of coming back to a huge stack of laundry at the end of our trip. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone planning a vacation to Kona!
