The Banyan Tree Bed and Breakfast Retreat

3265 Baldwin Ave., Makawao, Hawaii, 96768, USA

If a taste of rural Hawaii life in plantation days coupled with quiet time and privacy is what you crave, you can find it at this pastoral 2-acre property awash in tropical foliage, huge monkeypod, and banyan trees. The cottages (bedrooms, really, with updated baths, granite-topped kitchenettes, and private entrances) are simple and functional. The gem, though, is the 1927 plantation house, with its sprawling living and dining rooms, a commercial-grade kitchen, and a lanai that will take you back in time. The configuration of the guest units allows for several room-rental combinations, or you can rent the entire property for a family reunion or a retreat, with access to a large yoga and meditation studio, complete with audio and video capabilities. Guests can relax around the 50-foot, saltwater pool and in-ground spa that afford views of Maui's northern coast and Molokai.
