We absolutely loved this condo! The minute we walked in, we could hear the crashing of the waves, music to our ears! The decor is very classy but very comfortable! We loved watching the surfers and the beautiful sunsets from the lanai with a bottle of wine and some amazing poki from Da Poki Shack! The condo is very well... More

The Kona Banyan Tree property is located right on the water, has ample parking, and provides the amenities found in a big resort without the hustle and overcrowding of a large resort. The grounds are kept in great condition and the pool a sparkling blue. What you can't beat however are the crashing waves lulling you to sleep every night... More

We stayed in unit 305 for slightly over a week. Pretty typical type unit for the Hawaii coast.The unit has recently been renovated and they did a nice job. Two bedrooms and bathrooms. One of the bedrooms had small twin beds. Washer & dryer. If there were two adult couples it might be a bit crowded. No real privacy in... More

konasunsets, Manager at Kona Banyan Tree, responded to this review

Mahalo for your response. You'll be happy to know that the entire building has been re-wired so that all owners can now get internet and cable starting Dec 10. With the old wiring, there was a limit as to how many units could be supported. It is unfortunate that the guests above you were not good neighbors. Some people do... More

There is nothing much in life that compares to the sound of the ocean’s crashing waves. You will find that calming sound throughout much of condo #302. The decor, the view and all of the comforts of home were truly loved and appreciated. The condo comes fully stocked for cooking, including spices and condiments. Fully stocked for several people to... More

We just returned from a wonderful stay in Kona. We were there for two weeks, and despite the daily ominous predictions by the weatherman, we had great weather. We stayed in Unit 405 of the Banyon Tree and would awaken each morning to watch the surfers from the lanai. They were a constant source of entertainment throughout our stay from... More

As I write this review I am sitting on the lanai watching 18 surfers show their skills and taking in the salt air and ocean waves. Unit 405 is amazing and I would highly recommend it. Close to town, new everything, clean, convenient, and somy breathtaking. We will definitely be back!!!

Stayed in unit 405. When we arrived the temperature in the unit was roughly 110°. The biggest downfall of the unit is the lack of air conditioning. Kona is extremely warm and humid. sleeping in the unit was very uncomfortable. We had to go out and buy several fans then return them. It took at least five days to get... More

We absolutely loved our stay in #302. It was beautiful, and the view cannot be beat! We loved just sitting on the balcony and watching the surfers. You can watch sea turtles playing in the surf from the balcony. Listening to the ocean an night was beyond soothing. Certainly better than any sound machine we've ever used! The only way... More
