Aloha and welcome to Tranquil Turtle Retreat at Maui Banyan Resort! Our updated owner-managed condo is located right in the heart of South Kihei close to world-class beaches, shopping and amazing restaurants. We have thought through all the details to make your Hawaii vacation careless and comfortable, so bring your family and enjoy Maui at its finest.

The Tranquil Turtle first floor condo has been decorated and furnished in tropical beach style to reflect the unique atmosphere of Hawaii. This home away from home features an island-style furnished bedroom with California King bed, a cozy living room with a Queen size sofa bed, a remodeled and fully stocked modern kitchen, a central eating area with a table for four and a two seat island and a recently remodeled bathroom with a walk in shower. The bedroom may be closed off from the living area with frosted glass pocket doors and additional curtains to allow more privacy.

We offer cable TV, upgraded Internet connection and a high end Wi-Fi access point (Work-From-Hawaii ready: the Internet connection is up to 300Mbps, WiFi within the condo is up to 5334 Mbps.)

Don’t overlook the fact that this condo uses a premium split-system for air conditioning. Not only this provides you with an elevated level of comfort, it also means no tropical insects or any other living things will be entering the condo through window A/Cs in your sleep (yes, this is tropics!).

Pack lightly for the beach! Our condo is stocked with all the necessary: beach towels, beach chairs, a small cooler, sun umbrellas and beach toys for kids. All of that fits into a convenient cart that helps you take all the gear to the beach in no time.

Our condo is on the "quiet" side of the resort, away from the traffic noise of South Kihei Rd and the parking lots of the resort. Because it is toward the rear of the resort, it is very private with much less foot traffic going by. There is also a second (less busier) swimming pool located right across this building. This way you can watch your family play in the pool without leaving the comfort of the condo, while enjoying the view of wonderful local plants from the lanai.

Park with ease in your reserved spot, conveniently located near the building.

Maui Banyan Resort offers its visitors 2 pools with hot tubs, BBQ areas, tennis court and 24/7 security, but the best part of it, is it's location. It is right across the street from one of the best beaches in South Maui, Kamaole Beach 2, where you can take long walks on the sand, snorkel with sea turtles, watch Humpback whales swim by, have a picnic, work on your tan, and witness a world famous Maui Sunset. The Kamaole Beach 2 has a lifeguard on duty during the day.

If you feel like taking surfing lessons or trying stand-up paddleboarding, rentals are a 3-minute drive away at the best beginner surf spot on Maui. There are also lots of other activities close by including scuba diving, kayaking, and world-class golfing.

Feel like an evening out? You are a short walk to some of the most popular restaurants and shopping in South Kihei including Cafe O'Lei, Coconuts, Fred's, Moose McGillycuddy's, just to name a few. There are also lots of quick bites, food trucks, a health food store, a convenience store, and a supermarket close by plus plenty of souvenir shops.

Wailea is also only a 5-minute drive to the south where there are plenty of upscale dining options (Ko, Ferraro's, Monkeypod, Mateo, Spago, Duo) and high-end shopping at one of the resorts or the Shops at Wailea.

You are also in the perfect location to explore the rest of the island. Day trips to Haleakala Crater, Paia, Makawao, Kaanapali and Hana are all very easy from our condo's central locations. The Welcome book we send to all our guests contains Day Trip Suggestion, Best Beaches, Best Snorkeling Places, Best Local Restaurants and other information that makes planning your stay a breeze. We also have Maui Revealed and Maui Day by Day books in our condo that are highly rated by many tourists and will help you to discover the best of Maui.

If being close to everything is important to you and you prefer to walk rather than drive, then our condo is the perfect place for you! Welcome to your South Kihei home away from home!!!
