If you love to swim or snorkel in the ocean, if you want to stroll on a beach as the sun sets, if you want to spend evenings relaxing in the on-site hot tub while not spending a fortune, then our no-frills studio unit at the Maui Banyan in Kihei, across the street from the Kamaole II Beach Park, is your ideal headquarters.
Our air-conditioned rental comes with all the beach paraphernalia you might want - beach umbrella, portable beach chairs, boogie board, beach towels and more.
By booking with us, you avoid a $20/day amenity charge for using the acclaimed Maui Banyan resort, yet have complete access to all the facilities, such as the tennis court, outdoor grills, two swimming pools, jacuzzi spas and more. Onsite parking is free with your booking.
You'll have two double beds, a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, private bathroom with shower and a private lanai (patio), where you can eat a quiet breakfast or lunch with a near view of the ocean through the palms.
Although the interior decor is not luxurious, you're much closer to the beach than you would be at many of the nearby five-star resorts that cost three or four times as much. (According to the Maui News, the average nightly room rate in Maui County in 2018 was 432 buckeroos.)
You're within a 10-minute walk of at least 10 restaurants - Mexican, Hawaiian, sushi, tacos, pizza, steak/seafood, Indian, Thai, natural food, a bistro/deli and more. (Indeed, so convenient is the location that some of our guests have managed quite well without a rental car.)
Usual occupancy for the studio unit: 1 or 2 people. It is perfect for either a couple or two friends traveling together. It can also work for a family with one or two small children.
NON-SMOKERS ONLY, PLEASE! There is no smoking allowed either inside or on the lanai.
The unit is cool and quiet, with blackout curtains that allow you to sleep late, a lighted lanai where you can sit out or eat at night (without bugs). The lanai is always shady and cool. With a ground-floor location, you won't need to lug stuff up and down stairs or wait for an elevator.
We have on-island management so you can enjoy a carefree Maui vacation.
We offer secure online booking and respond to all inquiries within 12 hours. If you select the 'Book It' option, please tell us about yourselves and your vacation plans so we can make sure there's a good match.
Because this unit doesn't include a full kitchen, laundry facilities or daily maid service, the longest booking we accept is for two weeks.
