The condo was nice and clean. Maybe a little smaller than I expected but we didn'tspend much time inside so Ok with that. I wish the master bedroom had a a/c unit. The a/c in the living room never cooled the bedroom, especially if we shut the doors at night. Easy walk to the ocean and beach. Easy drive to shopping and other beaches. We never checked out the pools. Overall, nice and convenient place to stay.
Fantastic family vacation at Maui Banyan

We were a family with teenagers and a grand-parent for a three weeks stay. We loved the layout of the appartment. Everyone had their space and three television sets for relaxing at night after a full day of activities. The location of the unit was very practical location(right accross the beach and the pool). It was very clean and well equiped for all of our vacation needs (AC, washing machine, spotless BBQ, wifi, towels, kitchen, beach gear...) We also loved the ground floor lanai, very calm and shady. Fantastic service.
Perfect location and layout!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Maui Banyan and this condo had everything we needed for a group of 7. The room sizes were great and you can't beat the location, right across the street from Kam II! It's also a short walk to many shops and restaurants. The whole process was amazingly easy and stress free!

This condo is very well-maintained. We actually booked F-201 upstairs as well for our family of 12. The finishes (countertops, faucets, appliances, hardware, decorations, linens, etc.) are nice and clean. There was ample room for 6 people. Everything worked great. There are 3 separate doors to the outside, which really sort of made it feel like we booked 2 separate rooms. The patio has a nice view of the courtyard, which is very well kept. The master does not have a window unit, but it really didn?t cause a problem - the temperature was fine despite the fact that it was in the upper 80s during the days.
There is a pool (have to call for the gate code) with a hot tub, grills, and lots of seating. This property is right across the street from the very fun Kamaole Beach Park II (the condo provides pool toys/chairs/beach towels/etc. in the closets). My family and I had lots of fun there. There are plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance (it?s kind of like a primitive, more-scenic Waikiki).
It was very hard to find a parking spot near the property (we had 3 cars), but there is parking garage close by, so no big deal.
The property management company (Maui Condo and Car) is very well-run, very responsive, and very detailed. I called about a month prior to request a late checkout (on the downstairs unit only), and they were very prompt and responsive. And it was a reasonable price as well. I also called them when we got there to ask about the lack of a window unit. They were very responsive and professional when they reminded me they had told me that a year earlier when I booked (which they had - I had forgotten).
Overall, this is an excellent value in a prime location.
Favorite condo !

We have visited Maui and stayed at Maui baynan 3 times and this was by far our favorite condo. The condo was well equipped with needed dishes and it was wonderful to have the extras of beach items. The location made it so convenient to easily access the beach and pool areas. We definitely will be booking this condo in the future.

We were quite happy with our condo just a few minor maintenance issues such as the closet door in the lockoff was not fixed properly and kept coming off and an old tv set left on the living room floor. Otherwise a very good location and the ladies at the activities office were very helpful.
The condo was great but the sofa bed is terrible.

Location was great, condo was great, everything was just fine but if you need anyone to sleep on the sofa bed, I would not suggest booking this room (even for kids). The mattress springs are terrible on the sofa-bed!

Nice place, great location, spaceous rooms, has some beach chairs and umbrellas. However owner could provide more beach towels, and more paper towels and toilet paper (one package of paper towel and a package of toilet paper would be nice). A/C in master bedroom needs more freon, and need a new toaster. Found and killed two roaches on first day but did not see any other bugs after that.
Location, location, location!

We stayed here for 6 days. The ground floor location made it great for coming and going from Kamaole beach (which is right across the street). You can drop all of your gear on the Lanai instead of having to bring it through the house as you would on a 2nd floor or higher unit. The property in general is well maintained and very clean. The pools are maintained perfectly and the BBQ's are disturbingly clean. (How they do it, I have no idea).
My only issue was with the basic supplies that came with the unit. There was only one extra roll of TP. With 2 adults and 2 kids, we had to head out after only 2 days to buy extra. Also, there was only one cycle's worth of dishwasher detergent available. Again, we had to go buy our own. For the convenience of parties that are staying for more than 2 days, the additional provided supplies would have been nice.
Nice unit in an excellent location, minor complaint about the supplies. That won't prevent us from booking this unit next time we come, we'll just know to pick up some additional supplies on our way in. We'll be back.
Maui condo review

Front desk was very helpful in reservation process by telephone. Condo was great, as was location. There were more steps required than was described and the around the building pathway to avoid steps was difficult, as the ground was unlevel - not a good things for folks with bad knees. The pool rules also were ridiculous. There were pool toys left in the condo for guests to use; however, no balls, noodles, squirt guns or other toys were allowed. My grandchildren were the only 2 in the pool when using the squirt guns and were not squirting water outside the pool or on anyone other than the 2 of them. Many were complaining about the unreasonable rules, and many even took photos of the posted rules. These need to be changed for a condo that is supposed to be child-friendly. Current rules were made for a retirement facility - and even then would be too strict!

We were happy to see all the beach gear. Our 10 year old granddaughter and her papa tried out the boogie board for the first time. They had a blast. The kitchen was well equipped, beds comfy and thank goodness for the efficient AC! Was right across the street from the beach and 2 others were within walking distance as were many eateries.
Very nice time in Kihei

I stayed in this property with 4 kids and two other adults. We were very comfortable with plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen was well appointed and we even used the grill one night. Appreciated that there were beach towels.

This place is a steal for the price. We had a family of 5 and it accomadated us all very well. There is plenty of room for all. The room also provided cold Air Conditioning which was a plus due to humidity. We also had Netflix that was provided by the condo on our lazy days. Good internet also. The rooms and kitchen are a bit dated but we had many plans that we just used it to crash and sleep. The pool is a good 75 yards from the condo and the ocean is just right across the street. Maybe a 3-4 minute walk. The condo also provided 2 great Tommy Bahama beach chairs and a decent umbrella(a little broken but it works), kids snorkeling gear, boogie boards and sand toys. My kids loved it. Overall a very great location and price. Management was great and answered all my questions during my stay via email
Very wuickly. I would stay here again without a doubt.
Basic unit for a great stay in Kihei.

This property was great for my family of four. This was our second time staying in this unit. It is what I call a basic condo, it has all that you need in it, plus some helpful extras (beach chairs, umbrella, toys for the kids, boogie boards, etc). It is an older unit that is showing some wear (especially the carpet which should be replaced), but it is decent, roomy and just fine for a comfortable stay. The Maui Banyan is a very nice complex with a nice pool. Our only suggestion for improvement would be to have the complex supply more umbrellas around the pool... It is too hot there to only have 2 umbrellas around the pool. Kihei is a great place to stay and we love the Maui Banyan. Love this unit (F103) too, if you can do without upgrades.

Everything about our trip to maui was great. My lower ratings on the condo only represent the condo's need for an upgrade to the floring and furniture. The maui banyan property was kept in great condition, the pool was fantastic and we could hear the waves crashing in at the beach. The layout of the condo was really nice and roomy. All the equipment you need for a beach day was provided and when you got home the kitchen has all you need to make any meal you want. I would love to rate our condo higher and would definately highly recommend a stay here if the cosmetic upgrades are done. If i knew an upgrade was done i would look no further into other condos and stay there again next time.

Easy access to quiet condo, no need to check in! Close to many eateries. Great kitchen with many small appliances, silverware, and dishes. We ran out of toilet tissues (2 small rolls for a couple, staying 5 days were provided. You need to purchase your own supplies if you run out.) Beds and furniture were sufficient for our use. A couple of the pillows could be changed; they were badly stained. One of the tubs could have been scrubbed better; perhaps it needed a bleach soaking. Management asks that you wash a couple of loads of sheets/towels, etc. before you check out. It was difficult due to the small size of the washer/dryer. There were a few carpet stains which could have been removed, if cleaned. One of the bathroom's drain stopper was not working so my husband had to reattach the lever to the stopper. Many sand toys and boogie boards were provided; even a few toys for toddlers. Overall,the condo was fine.

We had a fantastic time and the condo was perfect! We had 6 people in our group and found we had more than enough room1 My only suggestion is that you provide enough towels and beach chairs for the amount of people the condo says it can hold. It was a little dissapointing to have to go out and purchase extra towels when it had said they would be jprovided. The management staff was excellent, we had a problem with the lock on the door and they came right away and fixed it for us! Everyone was excellent and we would happily stay here again!
Entry Code Screw-up
Reviewed on Sunday, November 23, 2014
We were given the wrong code for the lock box so were locked out when we arrived late at night with 4 tired children. Security couldn't help and when we called the office we got a message to call back during normal business hours. We finally managed to get an emergency number - after about 3 unsuccessful tries, someone finally answered and was able to give us the correct code for the box so that 2 hours after arrival (1 am by this point) we finally got inside. Not a great start. But after that everything was great. Loved the units location and was great for our kids to have such easy access to the outside.
