Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Jolene and Greg have been traveling to Maui for more years than they'd like to admit. Greg grew up surfing, and Jolene, despite an irrational conviction that she's sure to be eaten by a great white, likes to paddle out on a soft-top to practice her version of the sport also.
It has been Jolene's dream to have a place on Maui. When the time was right - Jolene hired a realtor, Greg drained his retirement account and in 2013 they bought a place.
Now Greg spends his time reminding Jolene that this was her idea! Luckily they bought a very popular rental and it fills up fast. It helps that all our visitors seem to really like the place!
Why the Owner Chose Kauhale Makai - Village by the Sea: We looked at a lot of complexes, but none had that 'tropical island' feel that Kauhale Makai does. The grounds are beautiful and the horizon is nothing but ocean and open space. Even though 'town' is very close, when you're here you don't feel like you're in the middle of it.
Also, this unit has been a rental for many years. It is HUGELY popular with travelers. We feel very fortunate to have a vacation rental with so many repeat customers. Even so, we keep trying to make it better!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Views. The views from this unit are the best in the building! Whale watching anyone?
