This 2 bedroom & 2 bathroom condo is located in ground level close to the pool and BBQ area and easy access to the beach and parking areas. Condo is a bit dated and general cleaness of the property isn't quite up to our expectation, however, in general I would give 2 thumbs up for the location of the condo. Please be aware that there are black mold formed in on all 3 A/C unit. I would highly recommend this condo with smaller children and seniors.

Our experience was great at the Maui Banyan G-101. After giving up an ocean front timeshare in Maui last year it was difficult to determine a place to stay. We were pleased with the location and the condo itself. We had our 80 year old mother and she was able to get around well.

My family of four stayed in G-101 for ten nights and thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations. We loved the location as it gives you quick access to the lower pool as well as the many shops and restaurants along South Kihei Rd. Its proximity to the lower pool allows for quick and easy retrieval of pools necessities left in the room. There is a fair bit of foot traffic along the path behind the condo but it is less bothersome than you might think as the lanai is elevated above the path level. Being the first condo in the building makes it very convenient to unload your luggage/groceries at the side entrance and bring them easily to your room. This is not often the case at the Banyan. There are a number of boogie boards, beach towels/toys and umbrellas in the condo that came in very handy throughout our stay. Jeff at Maui Condo and Car was very helpful and would get back to me with an answer to my questions very fast. We have stayed at the Maui Banyan a number of times and this condo is definitely one that I would book again.
Lovely view of the ocean.

Property itself was good. It was difficult to keep the lani area clean.
The lava rock was dirty from the dripping air conditioner units above and a rain shower. We would suggest that the lava rock be replaced with something more suitable and family friendly . New greenery and shrubs would also improve the area.

It is equipped pretty good. It would be nice to have a cooler to use and a serving tray for going in and out and to the barbecue . The easy chair is not very comfy and could be replaced. The dryer is very slow. We had trouble with the controls on the dishwasher getting it to start .All in all it is a great unit. Hot afternoon sun and a beautiful view of the ocean and sunset Mahalo.

This property is perfect for two couples visiting Maui. We loved the location as it was super close to the beach and the pool as well as several restaurants and shops. The beach is steps away (Kamaole II) and we found it to be one of the best beaches we have been to - snorkelling was amazing! We also very much enjoyed the pool and hottub area.
We found the condo to be exactly as advertised and didn't have any issues during our stay. I liked that the lanai was slightly elevated and if felt a bit more private than the other ground floor units. The AC timers have been changed to 6 hrs which was great and most nights we only really needed it for the first few hours. A fan in the second room would likely help reduce AC requirements as well.
Some minor suggestions we had would be to include travel mugs for beach / pool (although we brought our own based on previous reviews) and digital clocks in the bedrooms. Storage in the condo was a bit of a challenge but not sure what could be done to improve that - ideally there would be a main storage closet that could hold the cleaning supplies so the bedroom closets could have more useful room. There were a couple drawers on the second bedroom dresser that were broken as well that should be repaired.
Overall we loved our vacation and would rent this condo again!

The location is excellent and very easy to walk to shops, beaches and restaurants. Compared to other condos i've stayed at in Maui, the supplies were low here. May I suggest a mini cooler for future guests for their outings, some travel mugs for early morning excursions. and a new boogie board because when we got there the boogie board was broken. Also, a second squeegee for the second bathroom would help too. I know it's alot but these items would have been useful to us. Overall we were satisfied with our stay. Thank you for having us.

Our stay at Maui Banyan G-101

Our family of 6 stayed at Maui Banyan G 101 for 8 nights. Overall, we were pleased with the property. The unit and property were clean and well cared for, the management company was helpful and attentive to needs that arose during out stay. The location was represented well. Our chief complaints were that the supplies in the unit were very limited. Two sets of dish towels, very few pieces of silverware, not enough beach towels--4 towels for a unit sleeping 6 (the management did supply us with 2 more upon request), very limited cooking utensils available. Other than that, we had a good experience staying here. Lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance, also beaches. A nice, central location for daily excursions to see the sights on the rest of the island. The unit didn't have a great beach view, but we knew that when we booked. The pool/grilling area was very nice. More parking outside of the covered parking would have been nice as well. However, most of the time we found a parking space closer to our unit outside of the parking garage.

We were 2 couples who rented this condo because of its proximity to the Main Road and the beaches (Kam II). Building G is the first main building you see directly in front as you drive into Maui Banyan. It's close the the pool and ground level makes carrying groceries and beach equipment so easy. The two rooms, each with their own bathroom was clean, private and comfortable. We spent our days at the beach mostly or walking around the main road that runs along the beach. We really had nothing bad to say about this condo! Our vacation was perfect!

If you've ever traveled, you know that finding accommodation to a place you've never been is the hardest task in the whole vacation planning process. The city is new, you don't know where everything is and so you may as well have your eyes closed while finding a place. Well, open your eyes and book at the Maui Banyan. The condos are clean and comfy, the pool is lovely, the lawns and gardens are gorgeous and the beach is a 2 minute walk away. Kehei is no Lahaina, but you can jump in a car and explore rather than having to jump in a car to go to the beach (which anyone with kids will understand is a godsend). Some of the condos are a little outdated, but they are all kept up immaculately and will be everything you need for you stay. Book it already!!

We stayed at the Maui Banyan for our two week Cristmas break 2014. The unit is right across the street from Kamaole Beach Park 2 (our favourite) and close to the pool, so we thought it was the perfect location. We met so many nice people-residents and many repeat renters. The fact that these people keep coming back to the Maui Banyan year after year says a lot about the family friendly feel of the place. The unit was clean and has a recent kitchen and bath upgrade. The kitchen is stocked with the essentials. There are also beach towels, toys, and chairs to use. We would stay there again.

We have stayed at that complex once before. The grounds are well maintained as well as the common hallways. The pools are very clean as well as the BBQs. We would sit on our patio and look at the ocean. The sunsets could be viewed from our patio and windows. It is centrally located so we were close to everything we needed and more. The suite would fit 6 comfortably but there were only 4 of us.

This condo was used along with G201 for a group of 12 family members. The two condos worked great as it included 4 couples and 4 kids. The second bedroom could be locked off and separate entry if needed. The beach was just a short walk across the street, the pool was close and very convenient to resturants and shopping. Beds were very comfortable. Two small children slept on the hide-a-bed - not as comfortable - but hey it's a hide-a-bed, never have found a comfortable one. We had a wonderful vacation.

We were happy with our stay, we had trouble with the patio doors staying on track and they should be replaced. Also the hide a bed couch had springs sticking out of the cushions and the bed was not fit to use, it was broken and needs to be replaced. We had friends try to sleep on it, and it was awful, We sure hope that you buy a new one for our next stay with you next year. We slept on a LazyBoy hide a bed at Kamole sands and we would recommend a hide a bed like that. We didn't have any beach chairs when we got there and we called and we had two new ones delivered right away which was great. Great service. Thank you so much
The only other thing i could recommend is some plastic plates to use for the barbecue area. I bought paper ones.

Overall it was a satisfactory experience.
However, there are a few issues that could be addressed in the condo that would certainly enhance the experience.
1) The maximum time limits on all the A/C units should be increased to at least 4 hours.
2) There should be ceiling fans in the living room and the second bedroom (#101A).
3) All the siding doors should be cleaned and lubricated for easy opening & closing.
4) The hinges on the door from the living room to 101A should be lubricated to eliminate a very loud squeak.
5) The remote for the TV in 101A should be replaced . It only turns the TV ON or OFF and the volume down.
6) There was no key for the safe on 101A.
Thanks to Natalie for arranging to get the timer on the A/C in 101A changed to a 4 hour maximum.

Condo is amazing! Completely renovated and located right at the front of the resort, ground floor but above parking lot so no headlights & noise. Super close to pool & beach which makes it (in my opinion) best location in the resort. We have stayed at Maui Banyan serveral times over the years and this is by far the best unit we've gotten.
We rented this condo through a management company, Maui Condos & Cars. They were really pleasant to work with - very nice & very helpful.
Nice place, good location
Reviewed on Tuesday, September 3, 2013
Pros: Location on property is ideal. Kitchen and furniture is all new and quality stuff. Very pleasing. Good communication, no (meaningful) surprises except that the location was better than we expected.
Cons: Bed too soft, patio screen doors are old and one screen door entirely broken (potential mosquito & access problem). Management only provided 5 day supply of incidental household goods (trash bags and dishwasher soap balls) for out 8 night stay. These incidentals are only sold in 1 or 2 month supplies. To my surprise, they balked at bringing more. It's petty of them to, by design, make every longer-term renter go buy a 30-60 day supply to make up the extra 3 days they lacked. Also; they must have loads of supplies, why not just spend an extra 75 cents a day rather than making us spend $20 plus our time and frustration at running out.
NOT BAD, OVERALL!

We arrived at the condo a little early and found that is was still being cleaned. When we returned at 4pm the person was still in the unit cleaning. The beds in this place NEED TO GO.

Plus, there was no mattress pad or warm blanket for it. The kitchen was only so-so equipped in terms of cooking pans, trash bags, dishwasher soap and silverware. The pools weren't anything special but the grounds are lovely and the place has plenty of nice gas bbq grills. Definitely livable, clean enough, but nothing super-special or welcoming except the lovely views, landscaping and location.
