We were concerned about staying on busy Alii Drive. NO PROBLEM. Banyan tree is right on the water with a fabulous view and the sound of crashing waves all day and night. Just wonderful. You don't hear any traffic noise because of the surf sounds. The water is so clear you can see fish and turtles from your balcony. The...

We stayed in Banyon Tree 301 as guests of Candace. Everything was perfect. Lovely spot right on the ocean. Surfers, sea turtles, and whales were a daily view. Beautifully decorated with comfortable furnishings. We thought we might cook but never did. Banyon Mart was across the street for those ice cream runs and other needs. The poke shack about a...

Mahalo Kim for taking time out of your daily schedule to write your review. I love watching the whales. I am continually amazed when these large, beautiful creatures come leaping out of the water (at great heights to boot! ) and land back in the water only to do it again. And you can see all of this right from...

Wow!! Our stay in Banyon Tree #301 was amazing. We have been over to the Hawaiian islands many times, but this is the first time we have truly stayed in an ocean front condo. And, I mean ocean front! You can hear the waves and see the surfers right from the lanai. We had a palm tree outside our window,...

Had a great seven days at the Banyan Tree Condos unit 306. Really, what could be better than Kona Coffee on the lanai in the morning watching surfers do their thing??? Maybe cocktails in the evening watching surfers do their thing, and watching the sun set! The Banyan Tree Condos is a perfect location to go north or south on...

My husband and I spent a week in Kona and stayed in unit 302 at Kona Banyan Tree. We couldn't have been more pleased with our accommodations, ranging from its location to its comfort and functionality to its ocean view, which we couldn't get enough of. If you were any closer to the water, you would be standing in it!...

I am deeply sorry to hear that you had an unpleasant stay while celebrating your 44 years of marriage. Banyan Tree is a smaller complex of only 20 individually owned condos. Some owners manage their condos themselves while others hire management companies. Please be assured that your experience is highly uncharacteristic for accommodations at Banyan Tree. When this issue was...

“Units facing the ocean are wonderful, unless you are bothered by the sound of the surf, and if so, why travel to Hawaii?.”

  • No matter the time of day, the view is hypnotic, captivating. The sound can not be duplicated.

  • surfing day and night
