Creature comforts
Enjoy the comforts of home—including flush toilets, showers, and a kitchen.
We are an adult only facility, no children under the age of 18 are allowed. This is primarily for safety reasons, and for the comfort of all our adult guests. We have been the stewards of this aina for over 21 years. When we purchased it in 2002, there were only several varieties of fruit, now there are over 30 and growing. We make our own soil, and have trucked in many hundreds of truckloads of mulch to do that, and constantly make soil with our composting efforts. We are on a dormant volcano, Hualalai, that last erupted in 1801. The weather is ideal for growing most types of tropical fruit and many varieties of vegetables.

Truly a sanctuary
Our stay at Banyan was one of our favorite parts of our time in Hawaii. We adored the attention to detail in the space, which was beautiful and relaxing. There is an incredible view from the sanctuary and the lanai. The pool and common areas were pristine and welcoming, and we enjoyed wandering the grounds. Everyone there was so kind and accommodating. I hope we get the chance to visit again.

Manta Ray Suite Private Bath Lanai
Highlight of the trip!
The Manta Ray suite was perfect. It had everything you could want or need, and more. Including a hot tub, pool, sauna, spacious outdoor kitchen & living room, perfect balcony, and welcoming hosts. Even more so, it’s situated in a nice secluded road, surrounded by lovely people, houses, and environment.

Loved the ocean view and privacy from my lanai. Wonderful suite with a huge shower. Great amenities, salt water pool, spa and infrared sauna with the outdoor shower was awesome. Community kitchen and living spacious and everything you need. I will be coming back. Oh, the Farm Tour with Benjamin was fun, educational and tasty. Antoinette

Soul Replenishing ♥️
The moment we walked through the doors at the banyan tree sanctuary, our spirits were filled with peace and contentment! The beautiful bright colors filled our hearts with happiness. The other guests and residents (including the kitties) were welcoming and enhanced the environment. Benjamin played Beatles and Grateful Dead songs for is while we made meals in the refreshing and well stocked kitchen. We enjoyed mouth watering fresh fruit from the farm, cooled off in the pool during the day, and star glazed from the hot tub at night. We strolled around the farm and took in all the beauty. If you have the opportunity to stay here, don't pass it up!!

Banyan Tree Sanctuary is a gem. It is quiet, peaceful, and homey. It is just 15 minutes away from the airport and yet we felt like we were deep into the province. We felt so at home. Rae and Ben were so welcoming from the moment we arrived. Will definitely stay again.

Tree Sanctuary - soul connecting
Our stay was short yet incredibly sweet! Exceptionally warm and welcoming hosts. Rae ensured all the details were in place for our late check in. Being this was our first time to Hawaii that was worth its weight in gold to help us feel secure! Our room was vintage style, clean and equipped with essentials of home away from home. Beach equipment was available to use on our outings which again so wonderful as we didn’t know where to rent. There was fresh coffee, fruit and veggies off the land and macadamI nuts to snack in-I’ve never eaten a banana so sweet and avocado so buttery! Some of the people we met are there for longer stays and helped welcome us also-Janice was so sweet and helpful 💕 The property was exceptional, from the view off our private lanai and from every spot you walked or sat in! The hot tub was perfect under the moon and stars. We didn’t have a chance to use the pool however it was lovely and clean. The atmosphere was peaceful, serene with amazingly good energy which was exactly what we needed after a long battle against COvid as a frontline worker. Lastly, Benjamin touched our hearts and souls when he sang and played his guitar during our last morning’s breakfast. Somehow he knew just what to sing which brought tears of joy and gratitude for both of us. Beautiful people beautiful property - soul correcting and connecting! Mahalo Benjamin, Rae and Maggie Dancer for the restoration and love the Tree Sanctuary brought to us 💕🙏
