Banyan Guesthouse is a spacious (400 sq. ft) studio cottage in a private, serene, garden setting a block and a half from world famous Kailua Beach on Oahu's windward side. The former artists studio is newly renovated, beautifully furnished and finished in natural woods. It is very private with off street parking, WiFi, private entrance, private bath and a well equipped kitchenette. It sleeps two adults plus one or two children.

The space

The studio is a comfortable, live-in gallery of the contemporary arts in Hawaii. The walls display a colorful array of original serigraph prints and photographs by the artist-hosts and their friends. Fine handcrafts are both decorative and utilitarian accessories for guests use.

Guest access

We are delighted to offer guests private showings of our arts and handcrafts collections and to help them connect to the island art scene of galleries and artists studios. We invite you to step into the beauty that is Hawaii.

Interaction with guests

The owner lives on the property and is very responsive. You can expect to be greeted checking into the house. We will be as involved as you'd like.

The beach cottage is located within walking distance to Kailua town and Kailua Beach Park! No need to drive anywhere. The host was very friendly while also giving my friend and I our space. Overall a great place that I would recommend to anyone.

Banyan Guest House was a nice place to stay. Kailua town is a nice location away from the worst of the traffic and crowds. The beach is beautiful. My wife and I drove to the beach every morning to watch the sunrise. They said the town and beach are within walking distance and I suppose they are, but we preferred to drive. The cottage was nice and clean but the patios could use some cleaning. Although I thought the walkway was a bit overgrown, my wife loved it. My wife said the bed too hard but I thought it was perfect. The TV is inconveniently located with no place to sit and watch. I'm glad we didn't need it. We were there for eight nights and I would stay there again.

Lovely place with beautiful natural breeze. Loved being surrounded by lush gardens and the neighbourhood is very quiet. Great location! So close to the amazing Lanikai beach! Highly recommend getting a car to explore the island of Oahu properly. If I had one minor negative comment it would be that the wifi is very poor, but that's a great excuse to switch off and enjoy the beautiful surrounds.

This little guest house is a wonderful combination of old Kailua style and hospitality plus today's convenience and access to the best of modern Kailua--both town and beach. As a frequently returning kama'aina, I look forward to experiencing the comfort and beauty of Banyan again.
