Aloha and welcome to the Tranquil Turtle Retreat at Maui Banyan Resort! Our recently updated studio is located right in the heart of South Kihei close to world-class beaches, shopping and amazing restaurants. Enjoy Maui at its finest!The Tranquil Turtle first floor studio has been decorated and furnished in tropical beach style to reflect the unique atmosphere of Hawaii. The studio sleeps two, with California King size bed. It also features a small kitchenette (a fridge, a microwave, a coffee maker, a kettle, a blender and a tableware/silverware). Enjoy your morning coffee on a private shaded lanai. We offer cable TV, upgraded Internet connection and a high end Wi-Fi access point (the Internet connection is up to 400Mbps, WiFi within the condo is up to 5334 Mbps.) that beams all the way to the pool (Work-From-Hawaii ready).
Don’t overlook the fact that this studio uses a brand new 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 through window A/Cs in your sleep (yes, this is tropics!).
Please note that we don't have a washer/dryer in the studio (there's a laundry center in Kihei that we can recommend).
Pack lightly for the beach! The studio has beach towels, beach chairs, a cooler, a sun umbrella and even boogie boards.
Our studio 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.
Maui Banyan Resort offers its visitors 2 pools with hot tubs, BBQ areas, tennis court and plenty of parking spaces 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. 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 Lahaina, Haleakala Crater, Paia, Makawao, 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!!!
Need something more spacious? This studio can also be rented as part of 2bd/2ba.

Meet The Host

I'm very excited to have you stay at the Tranquil Turtle Retreat. My family first visit to Maui was unforgettable. We enjoyed the gorgeous beaches, warm ocean, amazing sunsets, local food, and the Maui Banyan resort we've stayed in. Buying condo on Maui wasn’t an easy decision for us but we don't regret it. Today, the Tranquil Turtle Retreat is our beloved vacation condo. While we're away our amazing on island agent cares for it and makes sure everything is running smoothly for our guests. We hope you enjoy your stay with us and find Maui to be a great place for fun, relaxation, or whatever it is that you need to return home refreshed and full of wonderful new memories! Spend your vacation with Aloha!
