Just What I Needed
Just What I Needed
I'm a business owner who came to Maui for business and decided to stay a few extra days. I've been to Hawaii many times before and I was REALLY in need of some peace & quiet in a beautiful setting and this condo was EXACTLY what I wanted and more. Ron & Shirley had everything ready for me. All I had to do was drop my bags and I instantly felt right at home. The views are spectacular and setting is so relaxing you'll never want to leave!! A special treat last night....I was sitting by the sea wall when a group of huge sea turtles decided to come and play in the water. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a peaceful and beautiful stay in Maui. If you have a car, it's centrally located from the airport to Lahina to Kihei. If you don't have a car, the harbor village provides everything you'd need for a stay of a few days. I highly recommend Jill's daily specials for lunch at the TradeWinds general store next door. Her food is delicious and reasonable. There's no reason to leave the area....just sit on your lanai and soak in some of the best views you'd find anywhere on the island. Wireless internet was a big thing for me and it worked flawlessly. I would definitely come back here and stay again. It's fabulous...overlooking the pool and the ocean with a backdrop of verdant mountains. What more could anyone want?

Owner response: Aloha Debra, Thank you for the wonderful review. I'm so glad you had an enjoyable and restful time on Maui.

Amazing stay - better than expected!
Amazing stay - better than expected!
The owners were very friendly and easy to get in contact with. Some things, like the balcony lawn chairs, had to be wiped down - but not a big deal. Everything else was super clean and ready to use when we arrived. It was also easy to check-out and no additional cleaning needed. We loved our stay and location was the best! Being right in the center of Maui allowed us to easily travel to Hana, Lahaina, and Kihei (all the places you need to visit!) Other pluses were the elevator, free internet, cable, full kitchen, laundry, the view, and parking spot.

I'm sorry that you had to wipe down the lawn furniture-we will train our housekeeping staff about the lanai prep. Please tell your friends about our wonderful unit and we hope to see you again in the near future. Thank you for allowing us to serve you!

Wonderful is not a good enough word to use for our experience in Maui. The condo had everything that we needed. Easy walking to fine restaurants and entertainment. Sea turtles swim all day in the ocean in front of the condo. Also saw eagle rays gliding through the surf. :) It felt like we had the pool and ocean to ourselves. We miss Maui already. The one problem is we keep bragging about our trip and condo to all of our friends. Now they want this site address to schedule their next trip. We have decided to share and give this rental our highest mark A+. Cecilia Noyes

Owner response: Aloha Marcus, Thank you for taking your time to formulate and submit a review. I'm so glad you had a great time on Maui. Thank you for the favorable comments regarding our unit Our beautiful unit coupled with the beauty of Maui makes for a fabulous vacation. I hope to welcome you back again soon.
Great place to stay for reasonable price - very comfortable; great view. The owners thought of every need (to include a nice bottle of wine). Would definitely recommend it - would be a bit small for a family but perfect for a couple. Comment - mold in the elevator vent but otherwise well maintained building complete with security.

I will let the building manager know about the soiled vent in the elevator. We hope to welcome you back again soon and thank you for choosing our unit for your Maui stay. Have a great summer-Ron
My wife and I spent two fantastic weeks at Ron's Milowai condo on Maui. The condo was evrything that was described. We have spent three other vacations on Maui and this was our best. The view from the condo was fantasic. We watched whales every day and saw beautiful sunrises each morning. The trade winds were very nice. The pool was a nice place to get in after spending time in the sun. The location of this condo made it easy to get to all locations on the island. The resturants close by had great food and service. Spent many "Happy Hours" at Beach Bums. Ron was very accomidating and helpful. We highly recommend his condo and look forward to going back!!!!! Jim & Robin

I spent a month in this beautiful Condo at Maalaea Bay! It was very convenient to everything on the Island and while it has an air-conditioner, it isn't necessary because of the Trade Wind breezes cool the Condo all the time! Perfect place to relax, cook, grill out, swim, whale watch and enjoy your time in Maui. All amenities! I would definitely recommend this unit and will stay again when I return to Maui!

Everything was perfect
Everything was perfect
Its hard to list everything, but this unit was absolutely perfect for a vacationing couple: - the unit was clean, and in great condition - the appliances, electronics and furniture was all newer and in great condition - the view from the balcony was unbeatable. - the building was quiet, we never heard any noise from other units - the shops at Maalaea have an excellent variety for places to eat, and is in walking distance. After a day of activity, its very nice to wlak somewhere close for an excellent meal - although Sugar Beach is not really a swimming beach, there are some nice areas that you can go in the water. Otherwise it great for walking and relaxing - beaches on all parts of the island are easy driving distance. - The owner, Ron, was incredibly easy to deal with If my wife and I come back, as a couple, we would go out of our way to book this unit again.

A beautiful condo on the water!
A beautiful condo on the water!
We tremendously enjoyed the condo during our stay. Although the waterfront is not best for swimming, it is centrally located a short car ride away from the best beaches described in "the book" as it is referred to here on the island. So definitely need to rent a car to fully enjoy this location. However, with a car, it is actually better than being on the sandy beach, as it is quiet and private in the evening and at night, offers amazing private dinner and breakfast opportunities right on the balcony. Ron is a great host and was helpful throughout the stay. Will absolutely return here.

Thank you Ron and Shirley for letting us stay in your condo. Your condo is very clean and comfortable, exactly what we wanted for our first trip to Maui. We really enjoyed watching the sunrise and the turtles every morning from the lanai. We would defiantly recommend this condo to anyone planning on going to Maui.

Why the Owner Chose Maalaea:
This is a very beautiful area as it is on a quiet dead end road and is very centrally located. Maalaea is 20 minute from Wailea, 20 minutes from Lahaina, and 12 minutes from the Kahului airport. The community is right on the ocean and right next to a very quaint harbor giving it a special feeling compared to some of the Monster hotels.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The views are magnificent. Maalaea Bay is a wondeful place to be. There is always some type of activity going on being the surfers, whale watch boats, and sometimes a whale or two breaching right in front of you to your disbelief. It a very relaxing place to be and our unit is very comfortable.
