"Really Nice place to stay!!!"
Left on 06/15/2013 for a stay in March 2013 | KellyReviewed Jun 15, 2013Stayed Mar 2013
Would definitely recommend this place. This condo is Very nicely decorated, very clean and everything you could need was provided. Enjoyed sitting on the lainai watching the surfers and just relaxing. It is well located, not fare from Kona and the little store across the street was convenient. Read more
Thank you so much for your review on Banyan Tree 204. I love the lanai and watching the surfers too! I so appreciate you taking time out of your schedule for your kind words. With Aloha,Candace
"5 Stars are not Enough!"

I would give 100 stars if I could! Anyone who is searching online for a condo rental in Kona, do yourself a favor, and don't waste any more time! We had the best experience staying here~ Not only was the condo in perfect shape! Up-to-date with high-end furnishings and decor, extremely clean and fresh, comfortable beds and pillows (usually we get stuck with a hard bed and a flat pillow!). Words cannot express how wonderful, and how "taken care of" we felt~ It was nice to not have to run to the store the second we got in for the 'everyday' type things- Laundry soap, dryer sheets, kitchen spices, trash bags, aluminum foil, etc. We also made good use of the extra beach towels and coolers, boogie boards, beach umbrella~ We rented snorkel sets before we realized there were already 2 sets in the closet~ Save yourself some money~ I could go on for days about how perfect it was staying here. Not only was the condo unit awesome, the entire building was extremely well kept up. The pool was spotless. The pool chairs even lined up exactly perfect, just like you'd see in a magazine ad! It was quiet at night (except the crashing waves right outside). No rowdy people "hoopin and hollerin". I could keep going on for days, and it was the best vacation we've ever had. Honestly. The only thing bad about it is... I miss it, and wish we could go back! Read more
Wow, what a wonderful review! Mahalo for taking time out of your day to write such an awesome review for Banyan Tree 204! I visit the Big Island often and I try to keep my condo in the very best condition possible so that all my vacationers will have a great experience. I am so happy that you had a great vacation!!

"Amazing View, Amazing Vacation!"
Left on 10/26/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | Charlotte CushmanReviewed Oct 26, 2011Stayed Aug 2011
We had such a great vacation. We absolutely did not want to leave. I am not one to write reviews but I had such a great experience renting this condo that I had to share with everyone! My husband and I and our two teen aged sons entered the condo and our mouths hung open. It was the best ocean view ever! We couldn't believe our eyes! I wanted to take the furniture home with us. And the boys loved the Xbox 360. And we also loved the Xbox too because my husband and I had time alone at sunset to sip a mai tai or two while they played Xbox and it was so romantic! The view from the master bed was amazing. We could have stayed at the condo and never left. But we did and the Big Island was beautiful. We are going to recommend this condo to our family and friends..and we will definitely be back! Read more
Mahalo for your awesome review of Banyan Tree 204! The condo does work well for families and equally as well for a romantic getaway. Even with kids there, I also think that watching the sunset with my hubby is just so romantic! I look forward to your return~ With Aloha,Candace
"A True Ocean Front Paradise"
Left on 10/13/2011 for a stay in August 2011 | ChristyReviewed Oct 13, 2011Stayed Aug 2011
We never rented from an owner before and stay mostly in luxury hotels. We were so happy when we arrived and walked through the front door...wow, what a magnificent vacation condo! You can literally see the ocean sitting down in every room. The view is a 10, simply incredible. The place has everything you need and then some, fully stocked kitchen with every doodad imaginable, blender, coffee grinder(nice),toaster, pots, pans, glassware, etc. Boogie boards and beach chairs provided (really?). The interior is like a suite at a luxury hotel with attractive furnishings, soft beds and fluffy towels. The place is also spotless and the cleaning staff they have folds the towels into little shapes along with the ends of the toilet paper...honest. They even give you paper towels and dishwashing soap, so thoughtful and convenient. We had one of the best vacations ever and we will be coming back for sure.
Mahalo for your awesome review of Banyan Tree 204! That view is amazing. The condo's floor plan flows around that view! With the floor to ceiling glass oceanfront, your ocean view is spectacular whether you are standing or sitting. With Much Aloha, Candace

We travel a lot and we have staying in all kinds of accommodations all around the world. We walked into this condo and my daughter gasped, " Wow! You didn't tell me we were staying someplace this beautiful!! It's hard to imagine but it's even nicer than it looks in the pictures. Michael and Candace, you have a wonderful Hawaiian home and I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay here. The location is ideal for access to restaurants, movies, and a short drive to Magic Sands Beach and Kahaluu Beach. The condo is stocked with everything a parent could want or need for a day at the beach: toys, boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs, and coolers. We stocked up on most of our food at Costco and Sack and Save. We bought our delicious fruits for cheap at the farmer's market down on alii Drive. We cooked at the condo and ate dinner on the lanai most nights because the view of the ocean is spectacular! The kitchen was equipped with every pot, pan, and gadget that I could have possibly ever needed. It really was a home away from home! I can't wait to stay here again and I will absolutely recommend it to friends and family! Read more
Mahalo for your amazing review of Banyan Tree 204! Your daughter's response warmed my heart~ The view from the condo/lanai during the day is spectacular but the view in the evenings is equally as mesmerizing. I love to watch the waves roll in during a full moon, the way the moonlight shines on the water, there is always a slight breeze swaying the palms, and the distant scent of plumeria..it is magical! Yep, I like the view in the evenings too! With Much Aloha, Candace

"I Love This Place!"
Left on 08/10/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | Jack and JulieReviewed Aug 10, 2011Stayed May 2011
We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here in May. We were so very impressed with the level of service we received from the very friendly owner, Candace that we had to write a review to let everyone know this is the place to stay. This condo is first class all the way. Having never rented a vacation condo from a private owner before, we were a little skeptical but Candace made us feel comfortable from the beginning. She followed up with emails, answered all of our questions and even provided us a list of her favorite beaches and restaurants. The view is the best we have ever seen...bar none. You are literally hanging over the ocean, maybe 15 feet away. You are so close you can see the tropical fish and turtles swimming around. We rareley left the lanai although you have a view from just about every room. The place was super clean and very luxurious. It was beautifully furnished and equipped with everthing you need for your vacation. Very relaxing with all of the comforts of home and then some. The location was perfect, very close to downtown Kona and all of the attractions but yet far enough away so you feel secluded. The weather was perfect and the ocean breezes always kept the place cool and comfortable. We will definitley be back again as soon as we are able. Thank you for the best vacation in years. Read more
Mahalo for your review of Banyan Tree 204! It warms my heart to know that you enjoyed your time while staying in my little slice of heaven. I personally train my cleaning staff so that each one of my special vacationers is super comfortable during their stay. I truly appreciate your kind words. With Aloha, Candace

"Five Star Condo...Absolultely Fantastic!"
Left on 08/03/2011 for a stay in July 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 3, 2011Stayed Jul 2011
I agree completely with Fred. This place is the best in all of Kona. You need to see it to believe it. We travel to the Big Island and have stayed at this complex before. This unit has the best placement in the complex, not too high up and no trees or other obstructions, just the blue Pacific. The condo itself is so much better than the others we have stayed at it is almost hard to describe. It is on the quiet side of the complex. It is very peaceful except for the crashing waves...perfect! The place is roomy and spacious and the tropical furnishings are out of this world. The place has a big "wow" factor when you walk in, recessed lights, high end fixtures and appliances etc. You have an full ocean view from every single room, even the kitchen. Everything is included here, boogie boards, coolers, beach towels chairs, Xbox 360, movies, cable tv and everything else you could possibly want. It is close to downtown Kona and all of the Restaurants and activities as well as beaches and excellent snorkeling spots. The kitchen has every appliance and gadget imaginable, even a coffee bean grinder for fresh Kona coffee! The price is ridiculous for what you get, the place is easily worth twice what we paid. We also already booked our return trip to this wonderful condo. We can't wait to return. Thanks for the best vacation in years.
Mahalo for your review of Banyan Tree 204! I am so happy to hear that you had such a wonderful vacation and I look forward to your return! With Aloha, Candace

My family just returned from the best Hawaiian vacation we have ever had. We go to Kona every year and finally found this place. Absolutly incredible and it is less money than we paid last year for a so-so place. Take it from someonw who has stayed at many properties in Kona, this property is far away in a totally different class than all the rest. No comparison, period! First, you are right on top of the ocean, 15 feet away maybe. It has an unobtructed ocean view (one of the only in the complex that is not blocked by trees), quiet...all you hear is the crashing waves. The interior is out of this world, rich dark wood cabinetry and thick granite slabs everywhere, stone flooring, ornate tile work in the baths, stanless steel appliances in the kitchen, dark bronze fixtures. Get the picture? The place is like a model home! How about fluffy linens, towels and sheets, dark wood furniture that looks like it came out of a Tommy Bahama furniture ad. To top it all off, these guys provided boogie boards, beach chairs and coolers! I probably would have spent another $200 to rent these items for the 2 weeks I was there, but they were included free! I am not done, they actually have an Xbox 360 with 2 controls and Tv's in every room. My boys were in heaven. My wife who cannot be out of touch on her computer, yes free wireless internet is included as well. A really good selection of movies and books (including The Big Island Revealed guide book)that tells you all of the hidden beaches and places to explore. The place was spotless when we arrived and looked like it was never rented, like brand new. Great location close to everything just outside of Kona about half way to Keahou with a ground level garage with your own parking space. It was nice to have an elevator for unloading the suitcases, groceries, etc. We are going back to this place every year. We already booked for next year. The very friendly owner Candace told us over half of her renters are returning guests. Read more
Mahalo for your awesome review of Banyan Tree 204! I am glad you enjoyed all of the guide books and especially Hawaii: The Big Island Revealed. I provide an updated copy of this guidebook in all of my condos as I think this book is such a great planning tool. I look forward to your return in the near future!( 12 months to be exact! Wahoo!! Can't wait to have you back )~ With Much Aloha, Candace
