Maalaea condo description
This condo is located in the Milowai condo complex, come enjoy that warm Hawaiian sun, the trade winds blowing and the ocean right in front of you. In fact the only thing between you and the water is the warm air! There are no streets to cross, no 'peek-a-boo' views -- you are direct oceanfront.
If you don't see the dates you want available on my calendar, please contact me. I also help friends rent their condos and can probably find you an oceanfront condo for your stay...one, two and three bedroom condos.
Our one bedroom, one bath, oceanfront, second floor condo is very special to us and we would like to share it with you. It was here we first visited Maui years ago and fell in love with the blue ocean steps away and the soothing sound of the waves breaking on the shore right in front of us.
We fell in love with the view from the lanai - watching the bright, warm sun rising over Haleakala volcano each morning we were mesmerized by the view, while we sipped coffee and read the morning paper. The lanai even has a rocking chair.
Hey, ask us about a 2-bedroom for rent for only $140/nt plus tax and cleaning. It's oceanfront also!
We have ceramic floors, mirrored walls, and you'll see the local sights of Maui on the walls through my photographs.
We have vintage Hawaiian furniture throughout, our new kitchen has white cabinets, new appliances, all new dishware, new silverware, new cookware, and all new linens.
Our bedroom has mirrored closet doors and white plantation shutters. These shutters allow you to open the top for a great breeze that is always present in Ma'alaea while giving you the maximum amount of privacy. There is a screen door on the front door and the main front door has an adjustable door stop so you can open it with various degrees of openness.
We have two ceiling fans, one in the bedroom and the other in the living room.
Our queen size bed features a comfortable mattress and box spring and you'll sleep on our 400 thread-count linens. There is a mountain view from the bedroom.
If you want to relax in the condo, you'll find a large selection of DVD tapes of all varieties of movies. You'll never have to take a trip to the video store!
The view from the lanai is the gem of our condo. There is only one word to describe it--OUTSTANDING! Watch the sailboats, snorkelers, surfers and swimmers put on a show right in front of your eyes.
In the winter you will be entertained by the humpback whales from the lanai and if you really want to get up close with the whales, walk the one block to the harbor and board a whale watching boat.
On the walk back visit the many award winning restaurants for a snack or full course lunch or dinner.
There's a small kiddie beach in front of the condo complex, at the end of our dead-end street is a five-mile white sandy beach.
On the beach you can choose to sit in the warm inviting sunshine, or under one of the broad, wide shade trees. There's never a crowd here, just the friendliest people you can imagine. You can even arrange to have a massage right on the beach!
The Ocean Center (Aquarium) is located one block away and there's a mini-gold course, rock climbing wall and plenty of shops for you to spend some time. There's a convenience store located there for some quick pick ups of food. Larger stores are just 15 minutes away.
As you can see, this is our special place and we want to share it with you to make this your home away from home.
No Smoking (and that includes the lanai) or pets, please.

Comfortable but dated

I do not have any major complaints about the condo. It has all the amenities listed on the site. The location is central to Kahalui and Lahaina. The patio has a side view of the sunrise which can be view once outside. The master bedroom got warm at night since there is no air conditioner but there was an occasional breeze that flowed through to cool things off a bit. The decor and furniture were dated and dusty. There was an overall sense of mildew in the air. Overall, the room accomplished its function, but first impression was not good!

Owner response: Aloha and thanks for the feedback. This was a last minute rental, day before arrival, and just had some tile work done the week before so will send in a special cleaning crew to check on the furniture.
We could only say WOW! We had a wonderful time in Maui, it was our first visit. The Condo was everything the listing stated. It had everything we needed in it. The view was awesome! Barbara was great to work with, she always responded back to our questions. We loved that most of the activities where in walking distance away. Thanks Barbara for a wonderful time in Maui.

Rock to the Roll of the Surf! is a lovely condo on Maalaea Bay, very quit, with a view off the bay and centrally located. Everything we needed was there and more, a nice secure and cool parking spot in a well kept building. This was our 6th trip to the Hawaiian Islands and the second best, but the only one better was 3 times the price. Barbara is very quick in responding to any question or wishes you might have and great to do business with. Only downside we have with the Milowai complex is the pool, compared to other locations we stayed in the temperature off the pool is freezing. (but maybe that is just me) We are all ready planning our next trip to Rock to the Roll of the Surf! Mahalo Nui Loa Barbara, and until the next time. Jake

I didn't really know where to book in Maui but Barbara's condo in Ma'alea was absolutely perfect for us! Her condo was authentic Hawaiin style which we loved - bamboo furniture, tile floors, even Hawaiin dishes! The kitchen is totally equipped with everything you need - in fact when we discovered the corkscrew broken Barbara showed up within a couple of hours with a new one - that is how awesome she is! And of course all the goodies she had in our fridge on our arrival was so special. We had a fantastic time! The most amazing part though had to be the lanai (balcony). It's ocean front and is fantastic - I could have sat there all day! The chaise lounge on the lanai became a favourite spot of mine to relax. Beach bums restaurant is right by the harbour a couple of blocks away, has happy hour, great food and live entertainment - we enjoyed that! All in all, we would go back to Barbara's condo in a heartbeat - but there again, maybe we should try one of her other condos... either way, you know you have a great hostess when you book with Barbara!

Loved staying out at Maalaea in Barbara's condos. Very quiet and private- not like staying at large resorts or busy hotels. Each condo offers oceanfront views and well equiped kitchens- as well as having other ammentities that you wouldn't find at local hotels. Imagine not having to overpack your suitcase with clothes for your staycation....having your own washer and dryer in each unit allows you pack the bare minimum...and no lugging dirty laundry back home either. Great for couples and families on a budget.

My husband, 19-month old, and I visited Maui for the first time. We initially looked into Kaanapali since there was a possibility of using a timeshare there. We decided to look around before committing. Boy were we glad we held out! We found Barbara's condo, read up on Maalaea, and decided that with the awesome price and the surrounding atmosphere it worked better for us. I loved the personal touches with the coffee and banana bread. If I didn't have gestational diabetes I'm pretty sure it would've been gone before our trip was over! The condo had a great layout and I loved that the lanai overlooked the ocean. Even being able to watch my husband from the lanai as he BBQ'd by the ocean was great! The location was wonderful too. The furthest we had to drive was 40 min. to get to the locations we wanted to visit. That is a big deal considering we had a little one that needed to be back before naptime. I also loved how quiet the building was. There were never any worries of our daughter being woken up by drunken tourists or other outside noise. Overall I thought Barbara's condo was great. The occasional ants were a bit of a bother but that just meant we had to be careful what we left out.

Great location - great value!

We spent 8 days of our honeymoon in Barbara's condo. The condo is as described, comfortable, nicely decorated and includes many extras like the beach chairs, umbrellas, books, DVDs, binoculars, and many more. The view from the lanai is fantastic. The location of the condo is very convenient. Many different places on Maui like Kihei, Lahaina or Kahului can be reached with a short drive. So we could visit many different beaches during our stay. I would recommend the condo to anyone seeking a relaxing time. Thank you Barbara!

This was a great place for us. The view is terrific. The condo is comfortable, clean and well furnished. The central location made day trips easy. And the beach just down the road is beautiful. We could even watch whales from the deck.

We stayed in you Condo for 3 weeks in Feb./Mar. 2010. Our first reaction upon arriving and looking out toward the ocean was WOW. We loved the condo, Very central, in the village of Ma'alaea. We enjoyed breakfast while watching the whales cavort in the ocean. The condo was so well supplied. Washer and dryer were great. We also appreciated the heads up warning on "tsunami day". Looking forward to seeing you next year. Helen and Henry St. Albert Alberta

We spent a week in this condo unit. While the condo is not new, it was very clean and very comfortable. Everything we needed was there and more! We hated to leave. Can't wait to go back and stay here again. Went to sleep every night to the sound of the surf.
