Marty and his daughter were so lovely for our 2 night stay with our friends who came into town for our wedding. Some from all over the world, it was the perfect location for us to relax, cook great food, have some drinks and lounge around the pool catching up. With beautiful views, lovely trickling of rain, lush landscaping and...

It was so nice to stay at this location. It was very comfortable and just far enough from the crowds to feel the sense of solitude, peace and quite. The amenities are very nice, pool, hot tub, and the grounds are absolutely lovely. We were a group of 12 that took up most to the rooms and cottages and we...

I know I know, We are on Vacation!!!!! However, I and another guest desperately needed constant internet access (work and school) and the internet was temperamental to say the least.

Beautiful property, great location, Marty and Helena were amazing hosts. Check out the yoga studio and the saltwater pool. Loved it. Will definitely go there again. The furnishings, art and history made me feel as if I was home and it a tourist.

I don't want to write this, because this perfect oasis of calm and rejuvenation will become in such demand tht I will not be able to find a reservation. But that would be selfish. If you want time away from the tourists yet be within 15 minutes of everything wonderful on Maui, then you need to make a reservation here.

Loved the property. Very peaceful, ample space, and just a 10 minute walk to Makawao. The ambiance is nice and the bedrooms are simple but that's also part of the charm. There's a pool, some swings and a hammock. The owner was very attentive to our needs. Great space for groups to cook, dine, and hang out in the living...

I was here 6 years ago, and Marty is such a great host. There is nothing that i could have asked for, except more time on the island. The property is so close to everything but far away from everyone. It was so quiet there and the Mock Orange filled the air. The pineapple that comes with Breakfast was the...

We enjoyed all aspects of our 5-night stay at Banyan B&B, especially the natural beauty. Our very roomy and comfortable Hibiscus cottage was surrounded by beautiful shrubs and flowers, which created a wonderful sense of privacy and delighted the senses. The up-country location in the very appealing town of Makawao was great, peaceful and serene compared with Maui's busy west...

Quiet, peaceful, well-maintained property with charming cottages, pretty pool/ hot tub, and excellent yoga studio is a wonderful place to settle in for the night - or even hang out all day! It's conveniently located near the main street in Makawao. Parking is not an issue, nor is safety. Proprietor Marty is mellow, laid back, and accommodating. Must like cats...
