Best Condo on Maui
Best Condo on Maui
My boyfriend and I loved this condo so much during our first stay back in 2008, that we decided to make it a part of our vacation again in 2010...and this time we brought his two kids. They loved it too! It was so wonderful to wake up in the morning and step out onto the lanai overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the islands of Lana'i and Malaka'i...and we even had some sea turtle sightings right off of the break wall just a mere 30 feet from the condo! Does it get any better than that??!!! Jack and Michael, thank you so much for, again, making our vacation on Maui the best it could be...we will definitely be staying in your condo when we are fortunate enough to visit Maui again. It was wonderful getting to meet you as well; SO GREAT! Thanks!!!

I can't thank you both enough for the opportunity to stay at your Maui condo. The name, House of Beautiful Skies, couldn't be more appropriate. It was so great to be able to enjoy mornings and evenings on the lanai. The house was neat as a pin, and had everything I needed for my first trip to Maui. I will definitely be staying here again, and wouldn't choose another place. The condo is so centrally located to everything, was warm, comfortable and above all, felt like home. Thanks again!!

"Best Vacation Condo"
"Best Vacation Condo"
Highly Recommended This condo is completely renovated along with all the amenities you need for a perfect vacation. Just come with your bathing suit, suntan lotion (beach towels & chairs included!) and of course, food and you're all set. Get up early, take your coffee downstairs and spend a fabulous morning watching the turtles feed on the lava rocks or sit on the lanai and watch the Maui morning come to life. You will find peace and serenity on your lanai watching the rainbows and sunsets but close to Kannapali and Lahaina if you want shopping or some night activies. The best of both worlds. This condo was "perfect" in every way.

A beautiful home away from home

Jack and Michael's condo was perfect for our Maui vacation. The view was spectacular and the location was convenient to so many great restaurants. We found the condo to be beautifully decorated, well stocked with everything you could possibly need, and sparkling clean. It's obvious Jack and Michael care for their guests by their attention to details such as beach chairs - and there was a cooler and cold packs too! Everything in the kitchen - including the appliances - looked brand new. We loved this condo and will certainly recommend it to our family and friends.

Personal and cozy

We had a wonderful time staying there for the first six nights of our honeymoon. Jack and Michael went out of their way to contact us numerous times before to give information on the condo and to ask what we were interested in doing so they could provide ideas, links to websites, recommendations, etc to help us plan our vacation. They put forth so much effort and made us feel like we were their only guests. From what I have read in other reviews, this seems to be how they treat all their guests. I recommend the Kahana area if you are not interested in staying near all the big and mass-produced hotels but are still interested in a neighborhood vibe (you can walk to Maui Brewing Company, Roys, and other restuarants). Also the view from the lanai is absolutely the best view in Maui. We had so much fun watching the sunset over frozen cocktails made in their blender. I would recommend this condo if you want personal touches to your Maui experience and not the same mass-produced experience that everyone else has. Jack and Michael will give you the personal experience to Maui so it can truly become yours. Aloha!

Jack and Michael, Thank you for opening up your condo to us, we loved every second that we stayed there and didn't want to leave! The little touches you added to the condo were just perfect. We still can't get over the awesome view of the ocean, something we wouldn't have gotten if we stayed at a resort. We also loved the fact that your condo was sooo quiet, which allowed us to be even more at ease and relaxed. Thanks again for everything and we can't wait to return to Maui! Daniel & Connie

Michael and Jack, the care and high quality of your condo was evident to us as soon as we opened the door. We felt like king and queen with our super comfortable bed next to the ocean breeze and rolling waves. We loved everything about Maui, and we especially loved returning to your condo to watch the sunset and cook dinner. Everything was perfect -- we would and WILL recommend your condo to all family and friends.

Thank you so much Jack and Michael for the opportunity to stay at your lovely condo in Maui! It was the perfect way for my husband and I to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We had a great time in Maui, and found your suggestions on things to do very helpful. We especially enjoyed the Feast at Lele. We also drove around the north coast of the island which was very beautiful. There were hardly any other cars on the road, so we felt like we had the whole island to ourselves. We stopped in the small village on the north coast (can't recall the name right now) and tried Julie's famous banana bread - we highly recommend it! Another highlight of that drive was hiking to the blowhole. Also, just past mile 8 toward the end of the drive, there is a pull-off with a non-marked trail; we hiked down and found a few pools and a waterfall, very beautiful! My husband took a dip in one of the pools which was crystal clear. We highly recommend the drive to others, if you are not scared of a few hairpin turns and one-lane roads. Last, but not least, we had a great time driving south and stopping at beaches to snorkel along the way. Thanks again Jack and Michael for all your customer service!Erin and Shawn Naber

Dear Michael and Jack, Harold and I got home from Hawaii yesterday, and we are in the process of trying to adjust to "not being on vacation in paradise". We so appreciated having the opportunity to stay in your beautiful condo. It was so comfortable and beautifully decorated. The Hawaiian music CDs and supurb DVD collection enhanced our free time. Our favorite thing to do was relaxing on the lanai. The whales were a delight to watch during the day and we were awed by stargazing at night. Because you were already booked we spent our last two weeks in Kihei. We missed your condo so much! We missed listening to the ocean waves and the quiet neighborhood. We hope to someday return to your little piece of heaven on earth. Our best wishes to you and our heartfelt thanks for your warm hospitality and attention to every detail. Aloha, Lana and Harold

Michael & Jack. We sure enjoyed your beautifully decorated condo. Had a wonderful time doing all the usual things. The road to Hana is one of the great drives anywhere. Had to go get some of Julia's famous banana bread and it was great. Honolua bay snorkling,Hyatt Luau, Whalers village were all great fun. The most exciting thing was just sitting on the lanai and watching the Sea Turtles swim by and the whales breaching out beyond the waves. As I was writing in your guest book there was a beautiful double rainbow. What a way to end a great albeit far to short vacation. Joyce is ready to go back today but I think we will wait a while. Aloha & Mahalo Derrol & Joyce

This was our first trip to Maui and we were there to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The condo was beautifully furnished and we had an awesome anniversary. The view was breathtaking and even our pictures cant describe the awesome views. We enjoyed waking up to the beautiful sunrise and having breakfast on the lunai. Michael and Jack was very helpful to us months before we left and we had the pleasure to meet them before we left Maui. We have already recommended their condo to some friends of ours for future stays. We look forward to returning to Maui!!! Aloha!!!

Most deepest gratitude from the two most gracious hosts Jack and Michael. Mahalo nui loa for sharing your beautiful home with us. From the sign at the door you know this is a special place. Not only does this place have stainless steel fridge, dishwasher, working AC (this is huge), comfy bed, tv, and all of home's luxuries, but its the Hawaiian details that makes this condo a class of its own. It has a very welcoming and warm feel that can't be taken in pictures. Every peice of furniture, handle bar, turtle figure, kitchen towel, bathroom mirror ... (its true i can go on and on) you can tell has been chosen with the utmost care. From the lanai, - not only do you see a nearby island, and occassional rainbows, but the most beautiful sunsets - Maui has the best. Also you are two minutes from stepping door to sandy beaches. Empty out your digicam, you'll need lots of space for these pictures!! Absolutely breathtaking. As two people, getting married in Maui which we've never been to, staying at a condo for the first time (not a hotel) Jack and Michael with their fountain of knowledge and thoughtful emails helped set our mind at ease. I recommend this place to anyone who have never been to Maui or have been to Maui many times before. You will be satisfied! Can't wait to go back!

This was our fourth visit to Maui and by far the most relaxing and enjoyable. We had always stayed in resorts or condos near the more touristed area of the island. This was our first stay in Kahana and we really appreciated the peace and beauty of this area of the island. We practically lived on the lanai....great views of the ocean and surrounding islands, and amazing sunsets every evening. The condo was very comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped. We look forward to staying at the condo again in the future. We had a great vacation! Mahalo Michael and Jack!

My husband & I would like to give our deepest thanks to Jack & Michael for our recent stay in their Maui condo. We can't imagine a more delightful place for us to have stayed for our 1st visit to Hawaii. We felt as though we truly discovered a "gem" among the many large condo complexes surrounding this one. Everything from the beautiful decorations to the gorgeous view from the lanai, to the MANY small thoughtful touches Jack & Michael provided, made us feel so very well cared for. And this care started WELL before our stay, with the many responsive E- Mails Jack & Michael sent, with loads of informative suggestions on ways to make our stay in Maui as enjoyable as possible. Not only their knowledge of the facilities, but their deep respect of the culture of the people of Maui made their suggestions so valuable to us. The only thing that would have made our stay in Maui more enjoyable would have been having Jack & Michael with us, to share a Mai Tai with!! We sincerely hope we'll be able to do this someday. We definitely know where we will want to stay when we return to Maui in a couple years. Thanks so very much, Jack & Michael, for a memorable stay in your wonderful condo! Therese & Mike Vogel

We really enjoyed staying at Michael and Jack's condo for our honeymoon. The view was spectacular and the location was central. They were also just a phone call away for the entire trip to answer any questions we had about restaurant, hikes, waterfalls, you name it. We would definitely stay here again as well as recommend it to our friends and family. We loved watching the turtles in the water from the balcony and were also pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of neighbors. We were even invited to a Hawaiian tea at sunset. Thank you again Michael and Jack - I look forward to doing business with you again. We love you guys!!

We celebrated our honeymoon this past week at Michael and Jack's condo in Maui. It was amazing. We loved staying in such a cozy place and being able to feel away from the world. It was so nice to be able to cook some of our own meals and eat them with the beautiful scenery on the lanai. Michael and Jack were so helpful in helping us find activities that suited us. Thank you so much and we would love to return. Sean and Jessica Herrin

What a way to celebrate our 25th Anniversary! Suite 207 was so welcoming upon our first-ever arrival in the Hawaiian Islands. But the great spirit of welcoming did not start at our arrival - it started months and months before when I began my search for places to stay on Maui. Jack and Michael were always responsive to our emails and phone calls. The info they provided was very helpful to planning our trip. My husband, who has a bad back, appreciated the good mattress in the suite. I was looking for a home away from home and knew I found it by the professionalism and warmth of our hosts. Thank you for making our time on Maui more wonderful!

On May 31, 2009 we arrived at your home on Maui for the second time. When Dave and I walked through the door we felt like we were back home. Jack and Michael you have more than the Aloha Spirit. We can't thank you guys enough, for sharing your little piece of paradise. We had so much fun watching the sea turtles. And on the last day we saw a sealion right in front of the condo it was like he was waving Aloha to us. It was so cool.The condo is very clean and tropical looking. If you need rest and relaxation and want to forget your troubles. This is the place to be! This is the best place. Thank you both for the gifts and flowers. Your kindness is overwhelming.

Round two! We recently returned home from our second stay at the condo and absolutely loved, which is really no surprise, because everything about the condo feels like home – except the fact that we’re sitting on the Pacific Ocean with the most beautiful view and warm sunshine. Really though, on our first day there, my husband and I were sitting on the couch and he looked at me and said, “We’re home. This feels like our home.” And, he’s right – walking into the condo and settling in, feels like home.We were impressed with Jack and Michael’s constant willingness to help plan our trip and make it exactly what we wanted. When we arrived to the condo it was sparkling clean with all the amenities needed (including a cooler, beach chairs and towels, Hawaiian CD’s, all the kitchen supplies you could imagine, extra pillows, an iron – the list goes on). My husband and I were in Maui for my best friends wedding. We hosted a small party one night – everyone loved the condo and was so impressed not only with the location, but also the interior decorating. The biggest bonus of our trip, second to the wedding of course, was meeting Michael and Jack! Meeting the two of you was so exciting for us! We feel like we’ve ‘got to know you’ over the last two years with both our trips to Maui – so it was so wonderful to finally put a face to a name. You are just as charming in person as you are over the phone. We can’t wait for our next vacation to Maui! Without a doubt, we’ll be staying at Michael and Jack’s condo! Mahalo for a creating a beautiful paradise and sanctuary within your condo. We loved calling it home!

Prior to reserving Jack & Michael’s condo in Maui, I had done a lot of research in regard to the location of where we wanted to stay. When I found their condo on VRBO I could tell it was exactly what we were looking for. Everything was just as it is described on their web site. All the reviews are absolutely accurate! Jack and Michael were so helpful and provided a lot of beneficial information about the accommodations, directions and interesting sites on Maui. You can be assured if you stay at this condo you will not be disappointed.

We are still reeling from our wonderful week in your hale in Maui. Your pictures and ads do not do your condo justice. It will always be fondly remembered as will the celebration of our 45th Wedding anniversay. Your recommendation for the Feast at Lele was perfect and we wound up with front row seats because we reserved early as you suggested. Your recommendations and advice for activities went far beyond what was expected. We felt like family. If we can ever figure a way to come back you will be the first to know.

Your condo is fantastic! Especially loved the view of Molokai and the ocean from your lanai, and it was a huge boon to wake up every morning to that. I would definitely recommend your place to friends! Also, we found very useful all the information you sent about the island and the places you like best. Recommendations were great (like the luau and cool beaches to go to). Thanks! Farida and Eric

It's been said before but it's really true. The condo is BETTER in person than what you see on the pictures. The place was great. Clean, conveniently located next to a moderaterly upscale mini strip mall with gas station and coin laundry (almost walking distance). Our first day, I lost my condo key and rental car key. Jack was great and prompt about getting a replacement. I called him, and then he took care of getting me a key that same day delivered via rental company. Also, Island lock and key (I hope no one has the occasion to use them) was super super NICE when they replaced my car key. We were locked out and late for Old Lahaina Luau (which was great and probably the best luau went to all trip on any island). They came by in their van, picked us up at Canoe beach where our car was parked, drove us to our luau, and when our luau was done, they actually delivered our car to us at the parking lot ready to go with a new key. I think Loreen is the wife, say hi to her if you have to use their services. One last Maui adventure note. Hana drive is nice, but we think the north coast drive is better (and more dangerous). Try that drive too and get yourself some banana bread! Definitely recommend this place.

Michael & Jack, Just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed evety moment, from our very first contact inquiring about your lovely "Hale a u Lani" (House of Beautiful Skies) almost a year ago, to the e-mail contacts providing information about your home and Maui, and now our one week's stay enjoying your little hawaiian getaway! This was our 4th visit to Hawaii, 2nd to Maui. We have never experienced the beauty, comfort and graciousness you/your condo provided us. Your home is truly Paradise on earth! One minor disapponitment, we were looking forward to visiting the waterfalls along the Road to Hana. As our host I feel like it was YOUR responsibility to make sure there was some water in them, but there was not. Please make sure that when we come back the next time that they do. Other than that, everything was just PERFECT! We visited every part of the island, several beaches, Haleakala, the Road to Hana & Oheo Gulch, Laperousse Bay & so on. Mahalo for the recommendation concerning the Feast of LeLe, it was just lovey too! As we have discussed, we would love to return asap to be able to visit during the Whale season. Also, a big "Mahalo" for sharing some of your hawaiian phrases.... A hui hou..... Aloha Pumehana (until next time.... warmest regards) Betty & Ron of Shreveport, Louisiana

Aloha, Jack and Michael We really enjoyed our vacation at your beautiful hale on Maui and felt at home from the moment we walked in. The tropical furnishings were lovely, the view was spectacular and the sound of the waves put us to sleep each night! The condo was clean and bright and had everything we needed including great dishes! We appreciated all your help and suggestions while planning our trip and look forward to another visit in the near future.
