Description of the Listing
If you love to swim in the ocean, if you have kids who like to play in the sand and go wading, if you want to stroll on a beach holding hands as the sun sets, then our well-equipped, clean-and-comfy ground-floor condo at the Maui Banyan in Kihei is your ideal headquarters.
Our condo is less than two minutes' walk to the beach. In fact, at night or early morning, you can often hear the waves as you lie in bed. The condo complex as a whole is attractive and peaceful. Right out the door of our unit is a sizeable shaded, grassy area with a BBQ grill and stone table that feels quite private and is suitable for reading a book, playing with the kids or hosting a family reunion.
You're within a 10- minute walk of at least nine restaurants - Mexican, Hawaiian, sushi, tacos, pizza, steak/seafood, Indian, natural food, a bistro/deli and more.
From May through the beginning of January, it rents as a 2 BD/2 BA air-conditioned unit. This affords ample space for a family of up to six, or two couples and a few kids, to comfortably spread out and enjoy a thrifty vacation. It's on the ground floor, so you'll never have to lug stuff up a bunch of stairs or wait for an elevator.
You get a master bedroom with a king bed, a living room, dining area, fully equipped kitchen with stove/oven, full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, pots and pans, dishes, rice cooker, toaster, coffee maker, silverware and more, while the second bedroom has two double beds. The unit includes a washer/dryer, two full bathrooms, adjacent to each of the bedrooms, and two shaded lanais (patios), each with table and chairs.
There is a door between the second bedroom and the kitchen/living room that you can close to create privacy for the parents, kids or a second couple. The main bedroom has a ceiling fan and TV, and the living room sofa opens up for extra sleeping space. Parking for one car is free.
Included is a generous allotment of beach equipment: beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel sets, boogie board, pails and shovels for kids, and beach towels. Maximum occupancy for the 2-bedroom unit: 6 people.
By renting directly from the owner, you need not pay a "service fee," a "booking fee" or a "daily amenity fee," yet have access to all the Maui Banyan amenities, such as the tennis court, outdoor grills, two swimming pools, hot tubs and more. And either way, you get just about all the paraphernalia needed for a great beach vacation: at least four portable beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach towels, boogie board, adult and kid snorkel sets and a multitude of kids' beach toys.
Also included are sunsets so fabulous you'll want to arrange your dinner hour around them.
