The owner of the condo that we stayed in added some personal touches, such as nice photos of attractions from around the island, a ukelele in the livingroom, and lounge chair on the balcony. Having a full kitchenette and washer and dryer almost made the place seem like home. Nice view of the cruise ships that dock in Nawiliwili Harbor....

This property is well located and beautifully maintained. The pool area has gas grills, clean restrooms and a great view. Try the coffee / gellato store across the street in the little shopping mall - it's great!

This condo was good value for the money. It is located central in Kauai which is nice if you want to do traveling. The unit we stayed in was older, kitchen had been renovated and the flooring. Beds need to be replaced as the mattress was not very comfortable. We had a ground level entry so no stairs to enter...

If you plan to visit Kauai consider Banyan Harbor Resort. It's affordable and a short drive from the Lihue airport. There's an outdoor pool, two bedroom apartments with full kitchen, cable tv, wifi, washer and dryer. The concierge is very energetic and helpful with info on island attractions. Banyan is a 5 minute walk to bar/restaurants, a small shopping mall...

This well established and maintained resort was a very pleasant surprise. We only booked three days as a fill in between other bookings. Next year we will plan to stay longer. We also liked the location and the helpful office staff.

We stayed in January 2017, in a two bedroom two story place. It was really well equipped with kitchen stuff. It was comfortable, clean, lots of space. our unit was updated, had Jacuzzi tub in master suite, washer and dryer. Easy location, close to harbor. Obviously, like anywhere in Kauai you need a vehicle.

Good location to get everywhere. Keke is the lady at the front desk. She is super fun and helpful. She saw us on her day off while we were shopping and drew us a map to a pier near by. All the staff were helpful and pleasant. The property is clean and the suites were clean. You hear city noise...

Mahalo for your comments about our "Activitys Wonder Women" Kiki....

I just finished spending three weeks at the Banyan Harbor Resort in Lihue, Kauai and loved the place. With professional friendly staff in a very clean environment (rooms & grounds), it made the stay very enjoyable when I arrived back from Kalapaki Beach every day or after traveling around the Island.
