This was a perfect place for us to stay. It was pretty much smack in the middle of both directions we wanted to go. We overlooked the water from our Lāna’i and the grounds were beautiful! An extra joy was watching all the sea turtles playing in the waves right there at the edge of the water. The kitchen had everything you could need and our unit had beautiful decorations and a washer and dryer, It was Fantastic!

The Maalaea Banyans are conveniently located and quietly tucked away from the crowds, noise, and traffic that plague most of Maui these days. It's also right on the water, providing excellent views. The trade winds keep it consistently cool compared to other spots. We stayed in Kihei for years until we discovered the Banyans, and we have been staying there ever since. It's the Maui experience we always wanted.

Maalaea Banyans resort is the perfect central location! We stayed in Unit 310 and the view the minute we walked in set the tone for our stay! Beautiful ocean view, quiet and peaceful setting. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The a/c unit was for the living room, but the ceiling fan in the bedroom did more than enough to keep us comfortable. In fact we used the a/c very little.

You get a good breeze through the condo when you open the bedroom window and the sliding door to the lanai. Only negative was minor and it was that the bedroom window faced the elevator which is brightly lit at night. There are good black out curtains to block the light, but I would have rather slept with the window open - just my personal preference. We did find out that this part of the island is a bit windier than other parts, but it did not detract from our vacation at all. If we ever get the pleasure to go back to Maui, we would not hesitate to rent this unit again!

It was great to have a home to come to inbetween a full day of adventure and beaches. Everything one could need is here. They even have beach towels, toys, and other necessities. We enjoyed being able to cook our own meals and not go out to eat for every meal. I came with my 11 and 12 year old sons and they would say “when are we going back home”? I think that says it all. This is a great quiet place away from all the hustle and bustle of the larger tourist areas, but is only a short drive to all the action of Lahaina.

At first I was surprised how dated this little condo felt but then I grew into it and really enjoyed it. I also found that the datedness of the decoration is very common in Hawaii. If you are looking for a super smart apartment that feels like a modern hotel then you will be disappointed but the bed is very comfortable and the view extraordinarily beautiful.

If you are new to Maui then this apartment is very well located as it is centrally located for reaching all the centres of Maui - but you definitely need a car. You go in one direction to the intensely tourist area of Kaanapali and Lahaina (excellent outlet shopping) about 14 miles away and driving the other direction you come to the laid back area of the North Shore (Paia and Haiku) which is reminiscent of Australian beaches in the 1960s. Paia has a great foodstore which is much much cheaper than Wholefoods and really good food and restaurants.

All in all I enjoyed this little apartment and would stay here again.

Beautiful and well equipped condo, grounds are awesome. Whale watching right from your patio. Sea turtles frequent the rocky harbor. Quieter area, but centrally located and easy drive to Lahaina and other tourist areas. Maui Beachfront Rentals made the booking process easy, and it was even easier checking in and out. It should always be this simple. They were also helpful in answering any questions re: area, activities, or Maui. I would definitely recommended this condo and the management company!

This was exactly the ideal vacation we had in mind. The view was amazing, the amenities were exceptional, the unit was very clean and it really felt like our home away from home.

This condo is centrally located to everything. We previously stayed on the West side of Maui and had quite a long drive each day to get to the south side beaches so we couldn't have been happier. There was only one choice of restaurant for dinner at the harbor (Beach Bums) so it would have been nice to have several other options within walking distance. The Italian restaurant is no longer open and the other option closes at 3:00pm I believe. I do highly recommend Beach Bums on Friday night for lobster night. Their BBQ is amazing as well. The washer and dryer worked great. Glad we didn't have to go in search of quarters.

I read in an earlier review that the harbor was windy and I would agree, however I didn't see that in any way as a deterrent. We welcomed it on those 89 degree days. The couch and bed were very comfy, the kitchen was so easy to cook in and we utilized the grill one night.

The one air conditioner worked pretty well - the ceiling fans helped. We were only a bit warm one night, otherwise we slept perfectly. Michelle, your office manager, was so helpful throughout the whole process. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner. I would absolutely recommend this unit to anyone considering it and could see us staying there again in the future.

This was our first stop on our dream vacation to Hawaii and, I have to tell you, it set the bar really high. We arrived very late at night and we immediately wandered a few steps out to the ocean to listen to the waves and stare at the stars and knew immediately that we had selected the perfect location. The unit is sized well and easy to keep clean. The furniture is clean and comfortable. We watched the Super Bowl on the huge TV and listened to the other Denver fans enjoy the game. When we weren't out sightseeing we were sitting on the lanai watching the whales in Maalaea Bay. The location suited us well, we were away from the traffic in Kihei. The pool is heated and very well maintained. The nearest Beach is within easy walking distance for the morning stroll. Beach Bums restaurant is close by. They have good food and the folks that work there were extremely friendly and accommodating.

Review by Kylie J.

This was our first trip to Maui, and we hit the jackpot. Everything was of the best quality, the owners thought about everything and on top of that the management company was very easy to deal with. It was the first time my girls did not complain about sharing a pull out bed, it was huge and very comfortable. The location of the unit was perfect, quiet with a nearby beach not packed with hordes of tourists. You will need to drive about ten minutes to get to more of a selection for restaurants and shops. It was to be expected, and we didn't mind - it's was only a few mile drive. This is truly a piece of paradise. Will definitely go again. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
