About the property

Kona Oceanfront, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bath Condominium, Ocean View, Sunsets, Free WiFi

Amazing Kona Oceanfront location! Located directly oceanfront at Banyan's surf break. You can't get much closer to the ocean than this unless you are on a boat.!

Life can be so stressful ...enter the door to Banyan Tree 204 and leave your cares behind. Many vacationers have described staying at Banyan Tree 204 as a Hawaiian Bucket List Worthy Experience. The ocean views from your luxurious oceanfront condo are incredible! Then add the gentle breezes over the Pacific ocean (Or turn on the AC!! ) and the swaying palms shimmering in the sunlight in the background...PARADISE! Sit down ocean views from the master bedroom, living room, kitchen, and lanai through the floor to ceiling wall of glass! You are literally 20' away from the gorgeous Pacific ocean!

Over $100,000 spent on complete top to bottom remodel, with new kitchen, baths, flooring, doors, plumbing fixtures, lighting, appliances, cabinetry, and furnishings. This spectacular residence has been fully equipped with everything needed to make your stay completely comfortable and features slab granite and solid wood espresso colored mahogany cabinetry in kitchen, hall, and baths, stainless steel appliances including microwave, FREE Long Distance to Canada and Mainland USA, large screen flat panel in living room. There is a washer/dryer in the unit, extremely comfortable beds in both bedrooms: Simmons Beautyrest pillow top mattresses, down substitute pillows, large beach towels, beach coolers, stone tile floors, glass mosaic insets in both showers, and plush bath towels.

The gourmet chef's kitchen includes coffee grinder, coffee maker, blender, microwave, toaster, heavy stainless cookware, rice/slow cooker. We also have a large pantry that provides storage for all your food, beverages, and special Hawaiian Treats. This condo is tropically decorated and furnished and is perfect for a family or a romantic getaway or spacious enough for a family. There is a queen size sleeper sofa for additional sleeping. (And what a view from this sleeping space) We also did extra things when remodeling our vacation home like moving the small water heater out of the kitchen that most other units have at Banyan Tree and we added a large hot water heater a placed in the back of the condo that is big enough to provide water for a large home with several people. No running out of hot water during your shower here! We also expanded the kitchen so that you can open the dishwasher all the way and not hit the oven. We strive to make your vacation experience the very best experience possible while visiting The Big Island.

Watch the whales and dolphins, swim with the sea turtles and tropical fish right outside your door. There is seating for 5 on the amazing ocean view lanai. ( A bucket list experience for sure ) There are two bar height tables and five bar height captains chairs. No looking through bars to see that beautiful ocean here! Completely private and secure, with covered parking and elevator. No stairs to climb. Spectacular ocean side pool with Weber gas BBQ's and an outdoor shower. Commercial ceiling fans in all rooms, FREE wireless high speed Internet...we have even included a family movie library so that you can have your own 'ocean view movie night'.

Banyan Tree is the perfect location only 2 miles south of downtown Kona, as well as 2 miles north of the Keauhou shopping center, with all of the fantastic restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, but also several grocery stores, WalMart and even a Costco close by. We have the best ocean view pool in Kona or explore the many secluded beaches very nearby from sugar white to jet black sand.

Please feel free to contact Candace. She will be happy to answer all of your questions about our very special Kona Oceanfront condo Banyan Tree 204 or the Kona and Keauhou areas.

About Candace Remington Spinali

Aloha! We are Michael and Candace Spinali from Tucson, Arizona. Michael is a native from San Diego and Candace grew up in Michigan. We enjoy our little slice of paradise at Banyan Tree and we are very active as owners of our vacation rentals. We have been married for 28 years and we have two sons. Our oldest son is Michael and he is enrolled in graduate school at SDSU in Electrical/Computer Engineering Program. Our youngest son Cole attends The Wildcat Academy of Engineering at The University of Arizona. (Thus the reason we live in Tucson and left San Diego) We feel very blessed to own our vacation home and to be able to share it with families from around the world!

Candace Remington Spinali purchased this condo in 2007

Why Candace Remington Spinali chose Kona Coast

After exploring the Hawaiian Islands we narrowed our search for a vacation home to the Big Island. It took us three years of looking to finally find our getaway.(And several months of construction once we did find it!) Our 'had to have list' was extensive. We knew what we wanted because we had vacationed in so many other vacation homes. We had to be on the ocean ( we had to be able to view sunsets, surfers, and whales from the unit!), the lanai had to be private(no fishbowl) we had to have two bedrooms ...the master had to have a king sized pillowtop bed and the guest room had to be able to have two full beds ( our oldest son is 6'4' and still growing!) We love our sanctuary! The sound of the waves, the view from almost every room, the 40' wall of glass to let the view in, the pool is fantastic, and the local people are beautiful! We love The Big Island and look forward to returning every time we go...and then we hate to leave and we always plan our next visit before we even get on the plane to leave! It truly is paradise...it's the perfect place to unwind and escape from everyday busy life! It is a magical place and we love sharing our island home with families from all over the world!

What makes this condo unique

Our Kona Oceanfront vacation rental is located close to everything, and so peaceful with the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep every night. It is close to everything yet a world away surrounded by lush vegetation and the serenity of the waves rolling in to the beautiful Kona Coast shoreline.

THE BEST ON THE BIG ISLAND

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I arrived from California, we arrived 2 hours before the designated check in time. The very helpful and friendly owner Candace, gave us an early check in which made it soooo much easier after a long 8 hour flight. (Layovers are tough! ) When we opened the front door we were stunned. The place was out of a travel magazine. Beautiful furnishings, gorgeous interior, and the condo was literally on top of the Pacific Ocean. When Candace says it is on the ocean, it is ON the ocean. The view is an absolute 10! The kitchen has everything you will ever need including a coffee grinder which we really appreciated as the first thing we did was go up the hill to the Kona Coffee farms to pick up our weeks worth of Kona coffee. The condo is stocked with boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, beach towels, pack and play crib, high chair...Candace has thought of everything. Please be advised that this unit is on the second floor. We have friends that booked a unit on the 4th floor and they said it was very hot even with AC. I understand the second and third floors are the desired rentals. There is no first floor as that is the parking garage. My wife really enjoyed the fluffy sheets and towels and the unit was squeaky clean and smelled fantastic. Take our advice and don't waste your time with other units on the Big Island. This place is the best and we will be back next year.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking time out of you daily schedule to write such a beautiful and truly appreciated review. I try really hard to make sure each guest has the very best stay possible while on vacation. I know that many people have crazy, busy lives and they just need some down time with no hassles....just vacation time to rejuvenate. The view from Banyan Tree 204 is very special and totally makes one forget about their busy lives! It feels like you are on a boat but there isn't any movement! I love my coffee too so a coffee bean grinder is a must here on The Big Island. You have warmed my heart Wade, many mahalos for being such an awesome guest! ( I hope to have you back ) Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

First, let me say the ocean view from this condo is absolutely breathtaking beyond words. Everything about this unit is exactly as the owner described, and it is exactly what my husband and I anticipated...and more! The unit is beautifully decorated with comfortable, high end furnishings throughout. What you see in the photos really is what you get, and more. The kitchen is fully equiped and well adorned with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances...and the ocean view again from here is awesome! Our son is 14 and loved his own room which was also tastefully decorated and comfortable. He was happy with the Wi-Fi and never turned on the TV. The Master bed was comfortable and the gentle roar of the ocean was like a soothing lulliby every night we were there. In addition, the owners had a nice selection of water toys; boogie boards, snorkle gear, an Umbrella, beach chairs and mats, and a cooler that we used to pack lunch and drinks while we were traveling around the island. The unit is quiet and close to everything. We used the pool and the hot tub every day and the grounds were clean and well maintained including new grass and a very nice new rock wall that was recently replaced. Everything about this condo was perfect for us. We stayed for two weeks and it wasn't long enough..We are now planning another trip to The Big Island for three weeks and there is no need to look any further...this is definately the place to stay. Mahalo Candace!

Absolute Paradise

We stayed at Candace's condo for 10 days. So relaxing, we woke up every morning and had breakfast on the Lanai, the most beautiful sunsets and we slept with the doors and windows open, gentle breezes and soothing waves. the place is great place for a family vacation.

Owner's Response: Many mahalos John for taking the time to submit your review! I always make sure to arrange my day around the beautiful sunsets. They are truly a show stopper! And they are so beautiful from the condo, whether you are inside on the sofa watching through the floor to ceiling windows or on the lanai watching from the comfortable captains chairs! The sound of the waves lull me to sleep! Heavenly for sure. So happy that you enjoyed your stay. You were wonderful guests that I hope to have return! Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

A beautiful condo on the strip

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for something in the heart of the tourist area, you can't beat this place. It offers beautiful sliding glass doors that open to the ocean, amazing views, and all the comforts you'd expect in a vacation condo. While not unique, I'd recommend it for young families who are looking to center their trip around the tourist strip and a family friendly, beach-front pool.

The property is all that was promised and more.

The view from the balcony is spectacular. I could get enough of it. Watching the surfers while enjoying my breakfast became a morning ritual. I will truly miss this place.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to write your review. It is truly appreciated! ( And you wrote this while still on vacation! ) The view is a jaw dropper. It is so hard to leave the lanai as that view hooks you every time. You are as close to the ocean as you possibly can get that is for sure. So happy to hear that you enjoyed your island time at Banyan Tree. You were an amazing guest that I would love have return! Safe travels home, Candace

A beautiful setting right on the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Kona many times, but our condo was in a great location. We had a fantastic view of up to 20 surfers riding the 10 - 15 foot waves. It was awesome!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking time to write your review! The surfers in front of Kona Banyan Tree are known as "The Show". It is like watching a continuous surfing movie, except that you are there in person hearing/seeing the large waves, feeling the breeze from the trade winds, and watching the palm fronds dance in the sunshine. So special. I am so happy that you enjoyed your "front row seating to the show"! You are as close as you can get to the ocean when on the lanai of Banyan Tree 204. You were fantastic guests and I hope to have you back! Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace
