Lihue has Better weather. In between going north up the east coast or heading east and going up the east coast. Banyan harbor has a friendly staff and is very clean, minimal chicken infestation (hahahaha). Take one home, PLEASE!! Be aware of the major roadway and the location of the unit you are staying in. Also know that there are...

We stayed for 5 nights and ended up coming back for a sixth since we liked it so much (and it was raining on the north shore). Banyan Harbor is in an amazing location - a two minute walk to Kalapaki beach (Nawiliwili Harbor). The beach ended up being one of our favorites - perfect waves for kids to boogie...

We have been to Kauai over 20 times and have stayed many places on the island. We visited Kauai 3 times last year. This was our first visit to Banyan Harbor. We liked it and would stay there again. We do not care to stay at a higher priced fancier property because we don't hang out at the pool and...

If you want an inexpensive larger two bed, two bath unit on a busy road, a 10 minute walk from the beach, fronting an extremely busy parking lot beneath a unit where you can hear every footstep your neighbors take, ALL NIGHT LONG, stay here. The 'lanai' is a deck which provides a view of said parking lot and an...

Aloha and I am so sorry your visit to our property was less than acceptable. From your comment, it appears you may have rented from an individual owner represented by a Realtor through VRBO. FYI we do not advertise our managed vacation rental units through VRBO. Your comment is correct as the few ground floor 2 bedroom units at Banyan...

have stayed here twice in the past and going again 2015. I personally like it here, I prefer the rooms away from the road because if you are near them you have a very noisy atmosphere where the motorcycle trucks cars etc accelerate going up the hill by the road not good! But I enjoyed staying on the other side...

My husband and I did an RCI exchange for the week. The place was very spacious, clean, nice views of the ocean, outside deck, nice kitchen with all of the necessities, and Kiki was very helpful at all times. The pool house was convenient and a nice place to lounge, grill and included a salt water pool.

Nice 2 floor Condo with 2 rooms. Quite and located near the airport (5 min drive). We found a dirty kleenex under our bed, other than that the Condo was clean, convenient and spacious. Staff is friendly. Kiki is very helpfull and knows very well the island. Five minutes walk from Kalapaki beach and from famous Duke's restaurant.

The units are clean and well equipped in every way. But it's the location that is perfect. Across the road from Kalapaki beach that's great swimming for all ages even surfing if you want it. Dukes and other fine restaurants in walking distance. Love the Kalipaki Beach Hut for Breakfast and Lunch. Grocery stores are a short drive as well...
