“Great Vacation Condo #302”
Reviewed 2 July 2011

We loved the condo. It was clean, well stocked with everything we needed for the beach, snorkeling, great guide book, food prep in the kitchen,nice beds and decor, PLUS it overlooks the Banyan surf spot. We would sit on the lanai drinking our Kona coffee in the mornings watching the surfers and boogie boarders, then at the end of the day we would sit there and watch the sun set as we had a drink or ate dinner. The view was amazing. The condo was centrally located to the town and the main roads and highways and we never got lost. Best vacation we've had. Would definitely go back.

My husband and I have just returned from renting Condo #302 at Banyan Trees Condos in Kona on the Big Island. We so loved staying there that we called Janice and Robert and told them to keep our deposit...we were coming back next year!

The view is SPECTACULAR! You have the best seat in the house to watch the surfers surf on one of the most premier surfing beaches on the Big Island. We could also see sea turtles and watch the fish.

The condo is accommodated extremely well...every need was thought of, from the pantry to the "toys" to play with while on the beach. Dana, the on site manager, was also attentive and helpful.

You will have an amazing vacation when you stay at this condo!

We stayed in Banyan Tree #405 in early February 2011. This is a very nice, renovated unit with lots of amenities. We stayed with another couple and had plenty of room. We used the well-equipped kitchen for almost all our meals. It has granite counter tops, updated appliances, and a great view of the ocean through the living/dining area and lanai. Internet is provided but we could not get the wireless connected and had to use our cable to connect.

We particularly enjoyed the surfers, boogie boarders, and paddle boarders right out in front. They provided all day entertainment. The pool area was great with a hot tub and comfortable furniture. While there is only one gas grill we experienced no waits, grilling 4 nights out of 7. Security is excellent with a code required for the elevator and the pool area. We felt very safe here. We appreciated the elevator to haul groceries and luggage.

There are a few negatives: noise from Ali’i Drive in the second bedroom (moderated by the layout of the building); a narrow lanai that does not facilitate outside dining by more than two people; and, a master bathroom without a door to shut it off from the kitchen/dining area. Even a curtain across the doorway would help the situation considerably.

Stayed here in unit 32 in May 2010 with my wife and three small children. The apartment was fantastic and much better that i was expecting. Right on the ocean. There were lots of little extras like boogie boards, snorkels & flippers, coolers, multiple guide books, etc. The kitchen was well stocked with spices, sugar, coffee and many other things that other people had left.

It was very nice to sit and watch the surfers on the waves. The surfers were out practically all day.

Unit 32 was furnished to a very high level (much better that some of the other units). The master en-suite shower has these funky lava heads around the wall of the shower and a cool pebble stone floor. I would definitely stay here again. My children keep asking to go again!

My wife, Niece and I spent 10-days at this beautiful ocean front condo (#302) in January, 2011. We found the view/proximity of the ocean spectacular. The condo is tastefully decorated from top to bottom, including the travertine bathrooms/showers. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well equiped. The condo is equiped with WiFi, flat screen TVs and every other entertainment gadget one may desire. The printer came in handy for printing boarding passes for our return flight home. The condo is well-stocked with all things related to snorkeling/water activities clear down to foot protection for exploring the lava rock tidal pools adjacent the property. We found the on-site manager (Dana) to be very pleasant/helpful with local directions, activity suggestions, etc. Parking (covered) is very convenient to the building elevator which was very helpful in lugging in/out all those must-have vacation items/groceries, etc.

We would definitely book this condo again and certainly recommend to family/friends.
