The Space

All prices subject to 13.42% Hawaii State Accommodations Tax (due upon arrival). Our nightly fee fluctuates, depending on season, from $67 to $107 per night for 2 guests PLUS 13.42% Hawaii accommodation tax. There is a one time $50 cleaning fee, and during the Summer months, if you book for one week, you get one free day; stay for 7 nights, pay for 6.

Fig Heaven is a private bungalow overlooking the fig orchard, the gardens, and the ocean beyond. There is a queen sized bed, a dresser, a large chair w/ottoman and a desk with a chair. There is also a clothes rack, a place to hang your clothes. The structure is designed so that two walls are solid and two walls are screened to give it an indoor/outdoor feel. It is protected from the wind and rain, and has roll down shades for privacy.

We have a healing sanctuary called Banyan Tree Sanctuary, and this is one of several structures on the property. You share a bath house with shower, sink and two flushing toilets, and a full kitchen in the community area. You are allowed to eat any fruit that grows on the property, within reason, and can purchase veggies from the organic gardens, if available, as well.

We are a vegetarian community, and we ask that while you stay here, you refrain from cooking or eating any beef, lamb, chicken, fish, turkey or pork products, including any type of bacon. We are also a NO SMOKING facility, so we ask that you please do not smoke in any part of Banyan Tree or on the grounds.

There is a lap pool that is salt-charged, (no chlorine) an ozonated hot tub (no chlorine) and an infra-red sauna that you can use, and property-wide wifi. There is also a 30' diameter dodecahedron we call the Mother Ship that has a 70" big screen TV and a great DVD collection, (and subscriptions to Netflix streaming and Amazon Prime) and you can use it for yoga, meditation, or just hanging out.

We encourage you to look at the photos and inquire about any questions that you may have. Guests staying with us for two weeks get one free night's stay.

The closest beaches are a 15 minute drive from our door, and are in the yacht harbor area. One is a very nice snorkel beach, especially in the morning, the other is a turtle sanctuary with a broad expanse of white sand. One of the top ten beaches on the Big Island is only a 25 minute drive from our door, and that is Kua Bay, about 4.5 miles north of the airport. We have a limited supply of snorkels, masks, and boogie boards that you are free to use on a first come, first serve basis. We ask that you rinse off the equipment with fresh water when you return from the beach, and if there are several guests staying here at the same time, to give everyone a chance to use the equipment.

We provide various healing modalities; many styles of massage therapy, yoga, meditation, dietary guidelines, etc. and we can set up your dolphin tour experience/manta ray night dive as well. We are long-time residents of the Big Island and know many special places that we can direct you to. We are only a 20 minute drive to the airport. We strongly encourage renting a car, as we are quite remote from any stores or beaches, and you would need to drive to get to those locations. Taxi fees are prohibitive; if you are unable to rent a car, it's probably best that you choose another location.

Because we are a healing sanctuary and retreat space, and many people come to us for the peace, quiet, healing and tranquility that we are able to offer our guests, we have chosen to limit the ages of children that visit us to 12 years or older. We are simply not set up to accommodate families with younger children, and we apologize for that.

Come to Banyan Tree Sanctuary to experience a different level of peacefulness on your next Hawaiian vacation!

Guest Access

Everything on the property is available, most at no extra cost.
The only things that are extra are the massages, prepared smoothies and other food items, and the organic vegetables from the garden.
There is no washer/dryer service on property grounds.

Interaction with Guests

As little or as much as our guests would like.

The Neighborhood

This is an exceptionally beautiful part of the Kona side of the island, it is actually called Kona Heavens! We are in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood and we are the very last house on a dead end road, so we truly are a sanctuary. There are wonderful places to stroll right out of your door, and it is a very safe neighborhood.

Getting Around

There is no public transportation to us. Please plan on renting a car.

Other Things to Note

At 1100', we are a little cooler than downtown, and get more rain, so bring an extra sweater and a poncho/umbrella. There is always sun to be found somewhere on the island, but it may not be right here. A headlamp/flashlight is also a good idea, although we have extras if you forget yours. Also a sturdy pair of shoes to walk on the paths is a great idea.

House Rules

We are a small group of people sharing a very special and unique property on the Big Island of Hawaii. Since some of the areas are shared; i.e. the main kitchen, the dining area and some living areas, we ask that you respect any and all common areas and pick up after yourself. This includes, but is not restricted to: wet towels, shoes, backpack, laptops and other electronic devices, clothes, etc. Certain areas are available on a simple reservation basis, such as the Mother Ship, by putting your name and time of requested use on a little whiteboard by the door.
We are a vegetarian community, and we ask that while you stay here, you refrain from cooking any beef, lamb, chicken, fish, turkey or pork products, including any type of bacon. We are also a NO SMOKING facility, so we ask that you please do not smoke in any part of Banyan Tree or on the grounds.
We have quiet time from 9pm to 8am, which means you are welcome to use the Jacuzzi, pool, sauna or common spaces after 9pm, as long as you are respectful and quiet in your movements. Although there is no requirement to do so, if you feel moved to spend some time in the gardens watering or weeding, we always welcome that kind of energy.
