“Peaceful, private, welcoming”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Sue's Cottage was delightful. Very spacious and well equipped- space to be private. The grounds were beautiful. Marty and Mona were outstanding hosts- full of knowledge and respectful of privacy. The pool and hot tub were a wonderful benefit. The morning breakfast was always a treat.

Room Tip: Sue's Cottage is private, quiet with lovely views of the grounds from all the windows.

Staying at the Banyan Tree B&B is always a beautiful experience, Marty and staff are the best! The rooms are always roomy, the grounds are amazing, the location is perfectly placed between all of the upland communities.

Perfect place to enjoy the more rural side of Maui. Close to Paia but not too close. Closer to Makawao which was ideal for meals and groceries. The facilities for yoga were superb, with sound and video capabilities.

We booked Gardenia Suite. As we checked-in our room was already given away. The host put us in a bigger room, the Sue’s Cottage. The cottage was quite spacious. It was quiet. I think also because we didn’t have any direct neighbors with a sharing wall. The premises were nice with lots of plants and flowers. The pool was nice too. Although the water hoover was always in the water. The hosts were very friendly. In the morning the host put the break-fast in front of your door. It’s only some fresh pineapple, papaya, a muffin, apple juice in a tetrapak. Coffee you make yourself in the kitchenette. Comparing to other accommodations in Maui I found this too expensive. You are a bit closer to Haleakala National Park than in other places but it is still at least an hour’s drive up to the summit. So therefore and what was offered we thought the rates were too expensive.

My wife and I recently got married on Maui and spent a few nights at Banyan B&B. Marty, the owner, could not have been more gracious and generous. We found the room to be modestly comfortable and the aura of the compound relaxed. Mahalo for making us feel welcome. We will definitely be back.

E malama pono,

After spending five nights at a big resort in Wailea, we wanted to spend some time "upcountry" and we chose the Banyan B&B where we spent three great nights (12/9-11/13).

The grounds are lovely and our room (the Gardenia cottage) was comfortable, clean, and well-stocked with whatever we needed especially to enjoy the continental breakfast with fresh pineapple and mango. We were struck how tranquil and quiet it was there.

The property is a great gateway to upcountry, especially Makawao which is a 10 minute walk or really short drive away, and Kula. It was also close to Pa'ia.

The owner, Marty, was exceptionally nice, pleasant, and welcoming. His recommendation of eating dinner at the Hali'imaile General Store (which was excellent) was spot on.

We would certainly come back.

I arrived rather spontaneously in Paea and for the first days struggled to find a peaceful, reasonably priced room. Then I found the Banyan Tree and found deep peace in an attractive, tranquil setting. I was very happy with my large room( Hibiscus) which was clean and bright with a very comfortable bed. The owner, Marty, was particularly warm and friendly to me and helped me out a lot during my stay - sorting me out with a car, giving me some good tips, lending me his snorkeling gear, cracking opening coconuts for me, kindly driving me to the airport and much more. A really great guy.
The air is wonderfully fresh up here and it's generally a great location to unwind, swim in the nice pool, enjoy the jacuzzi and be a little away from the business that is Paea.
Highly recommended - Thankyou Marty.
