Hawaiians staying in Kihei
Reviewed on Tuesday, August 23, 2016
We enjoyed our stay in this condo. The condo was clean, equipped with everything that we needed, beds to accommodate everyone, extra sheets and blankets, alot of extra towels and laundry soap too. The best part about this condo was that there were 2 AC units. 1 in the Twin room and 1 in the main area. One thing i did not like was that the twin room bathroom hardly had hot water every time it was time to shower. It seemed like the hot water heater was not connected to the twin room but only to the main area and other shower. It was very dissapointing when we came back late to the condo after a long day of volleyball and had to shower cold water. Parking on the 3rd floor was a little pain in the butt but it was doable. Other then the hot/cold water issuse, my party enjoyed our stay. The price for this condo was awesome and within all our budgets. Kihei is a beautiful place to stay. Mahalo nui loa.

After spending time at resorts in Kaanapali over the years, this is our first experience in Kihei and would absolutely recommend the Maui Banyan to everyone. There were 4 in my group, my husband, two children (ages 11 & 15) and myself. The kids had the separate bedroom which had two twin beds in it. Perfect! There was a pull out sofa bed in the living room but we didn't use that. Our room was the master and it was perfect too. When i first got into the unit- I went out onto the lanai and took wonderful ocean views. Yes, there is a parking garage directly in front of me but to the left is the ocean views. The parking garage has flowers all over it so it really was not a distraction at all. We were able to walk a block to the beach (has lifeguards too!) and the unit supplied 3 boogie boards, 4 beach chairs and an umbrella which was great. There are also beach toys but my kids are too old for that now. One thing I really like about south kihei is that we can walk everywhere--restaurants, deli's, shaved ice, gift shops, surf renting shops, salons... The beaches all have restrooms and showers. We did drive to Ulea beach where the snorkeling was great and that was only a 5 min drive into Wailea-we did this 3x...We did drive up to Lahaina & Kaanopoli for a Lua and to see the penguins at the Hyat, Haleakala crater, road to hana, zipline, snorkeling to molikini crater and turtle town...We packed in many activities and still stayed within our budget. We cooked at the condo every night except for 2x out of our 7 night stay and we bbq by the pool. We played tennis there too which was a very good court. Very pleased and will stay here again! Thank you Maui Condo and Car for making our experience here on Maui a very memorable one and we will cherish these memories forever:) The Burmaster Family

Check in went well and keys and lock boxes worked great. Condo is dated but was clean on arrival. The coffee maker had an old filter and water in it and it was full of green mold. We had to purchase a descaler and clean and sanitize everything to do with it. There was no mop to wash the floors or patio, just a broken end mop missing the scrubber.The AC units are old and outdated but maintained the comfort zone well, very noisy though.There are scrapes in the paint on the walls that need attention. when you run the dishwasher, there is a distinct sewer gas aroma in the area, trap problem needs to be addressed.Lanai has early and late day sun, comfortable with great views, sunset and rise.Excellent beach directly across road from complex and easy access to everything.All in all, aside from a couple physical things listed, condo delivered well.Internet in the room, slow and laggy but available when required.
Don't even think about having fun

While the rental itself was great, though it could use a little updating and better beds in the spare room, it was the on site amenities that were disappointing. We were there visiting with all of our family--kids included. The pool rules were asinine. Instead of the many donts the should just post NO FUN ALLOWED! The security guard basically harassed us and essentially said that if we bribed him he would be lenient. I find that unacceptable. The remainder of our trip he made every opportunity to seek us out and be rude.
Convenience, location and amenities!

Four adults and two kids took over this condo for three nights. We were pleased with the space, the view, the books, the free tennis courts, the pools, and the proximity to the ocean. It was a great place to rest during our fun-filled days in Kihei!

Great complex and great location. Condo was basic viper feet for our needs. Had some baby toys and we left some extras. I will definitely return.

Maui Banyan Stay

My two teens and I were in Kihei for just over a week and this was a great home base for us! Close driving proximity to Safeway and walking distance to some great dining options. Kitchen was great for breakfasts in the morning (blender for smoothies!)and making dinner. Didn't use the pool facilities as we were across the street from the beach! Parking is convenient and plentiful. Amenities are very basic but comfortable as we didn't spend much time during the day in it. Would recommend and stay again!

We loved the location of the property. It was so close to the beach it was so nice to be able to walk to the beach. Plus the beach was nice not rocky. We really enjoyed the conscience of the beach chairs that were available in the condo. The view frrom the lanai was great. i

Like everything about the condo, except the 125 dollar cleaning deposit as I thought that was too high for only 3 days.

We enjoyed our stay at Maui Banyan. It was furnished very nicely and close to restaurants and mini malls and the beaches. The only thing I missed was being able to hear the surf at night.
