Recent Maui reviews

  • All the comforts and conveniences of home!

    "As soon as we arrived we were surprised by a welcome basket of local goodies. (Thank you Kanako!) Just like Maui, the unit is more impressive than photos - the ceiling in the living/dining room is nice and high and the view from the balcony at sunset is breath-taking, especially with the beautifully kept golf course in the foreground and mountain and ocean in the background. Our family of 6 adults stayed here. The master bedroom is nice and spacious with a generous bathroom. There is a door separating the toilet from the sink and shower, however there is no door separating the sink/shower from the master bedroom. The third bedroom with 2 twin beds were pushed together to form a king sized bed (as requested) and worked nicely for us. The rooms were comfortable and clean. As other reviews have noted, there were plenty of bath towels and beach towels to use. We really liked the convenience of the kitchen - it allowed us to prepare breakfast and midnight snacks at our leisure. This was much better for us than having to wait for everyone to be ready in the morning before going out for breakfast. We saved a lot of money that way. The kitchen has everything you need, including pots/pans, dishes, cutlery, spices, soap, and dish cloths. You might just have to get more paper towel if you use up the roll provided, depending on the length of your stay. (Same goes with toilet paper!) Having access to a washer and dryer on the balcony was also really convenient. The machines looked brand new. We purposely packed less clothing knowing that we could do a quick load of laundry there. The internet and cable was very adequate. Keep in mind that the wireless internet does not have a password. A/C window units quickly cooled the condo. Note, there is no A/C in the 3rd bedroom, but every bdrm has a ceiling fan. The condo included fun for the beach - boogie boards and 8 beach chairs. The chairs were really useful when we went up to watch the sunset at Haleakala. Grounds of the Grand Champions are beautifully and constantly maintained. There is a security guard who walks around at night. There is a car-washing station that allowed us to rinse off sand from trips to the beach. Communicating with the owner was easy. Kanako always answered my emails and was very kind to mail us our toiletry bag when we discovered that we left it behind. (THANKS AGAIN KANAKO!) Overall, we were very happy that we stayed here and would recommend it to anyone!"

  • Great condo

    "Condo was great! Very quiet, great view of the ocean and other islands. Saw many whales off in the distance. Loved watching all the sea turtles right out front. Condo was very well stocked. Great beach towels, cooler, snorkeling gear...we so appreciated all of that. Kitchen was well stocked and we loved being able to bbq down at the pool."

  • Great place, great location!

    "My family and I just spent a great week at this condo and had a wonderful time. Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived. The kitchen had everything we could need for our stay. The washer/dryer were very convenient and easy to use. With two small children, it was great having all the beach toys, towels, cooler right there for us to use as well. Being right across the street from the beach a big help too. There were plenty of restaurants that we could walk to as well. It was nice not having to load the kids in the car everytime we wanted to go out. The view of the sunsets from the balcony was also wonderful. If we weren't watching the sunset on the beach, were were sitting on the balcony. The general location in Maui was also really convienient for us with the kids and not having to spend a ton of time in the car. It was a short drive from the airport. When heading out for day trips, it was so easy to get to a whale watching excursion in Maalaea, quick to get to Lahaina or to Iao Valley or Makena State park. We also made a trip up to the Surfing Goat Dairy for a tour and cheese tasting that the kids loved and Haleakalā National Park for sunset. So, we would definitely recommend this condo to friends/family and for our next trip to Maui. Thanks Bill and Sue for opening your home to us!"

  • 12 Days Wasn't Enough

    "We just returned to the mainland after 12 fabulous days staying in this condo. Our time in Kihei was perfect. This condominium complex is perfectly located within walking distance of everything you could possibly want or need. Grocery store, ABC store, Marketplace shopping, restaurants, shave ice stands, BEACHES, surf lesson/rental shop right next door, I could go on. I recommend this condominium complex highly. Working with Jim and Ed were effortless and they were always quick with a response. The condo was clean, updated beautifully, and comfortable. Mahalo, Jim, Carolyn! We cannot wait to return to your gorgeous island paradise!"

Maui Travel Tips

As the second-largest Hawaiian island, Maui, or the “Magic Isle” as they like to call it, boasts a large diversity of lush green valleys, historic whaling villages and stunning national parks. Let’s get oriented on the island and find out the best things to do.

The Hawaiian island’s beaches are enough of a pull on their own with amazing sand and stunning crystal, warm waters. They are the perfect place to take surfing lessons, build an impressive sand castle, go for a swim or just relax in the sand. Each beach offers various beautiful views as well as a different atmosphere. Whether you’re looking for something quiet or crave a little more action, the beaches of Maui are sure to deliver.

In between trips to the beach, enjoy exploring the rest of the island. Try out different restaurants to experience traditional Hawaiian fare or stop by a museum or two to learn about the island’s history. You even take a hike to the top of a dormant volcano. Don’t forget your camera!

Known as the “Valley Isle,” Maui provides many experiences the whole family can enjoy or plenty of romantic settings where you and your significant other can celebrate your love.

Beaches of Maui

Kaanapali Beach: One of Maui’s best beaches is Kaanapali Beach, with three miles of sandy shores to enjoy. The northernmost section of the beach is a great place for snorkeling where you can see the different creatures living in the area up close and personal.

As one of the signatures of Kaanapali, cliff-divers love to jump off the beach’s northernmost edge, Puu Kekaa, or Black Rock. The ceremony occurs every evening at sunset to honor King Kahekili. Watch divers light the torches on top of the cliffs before they leap into the waters below. It is a spectacle you won’t want to miss!

Wailea Beach: If you’re looking for a good place to take a dip, check out Wailea Beach. This area also comes with restrooms for convenience and rental equipment so you can try your hand at different aquatic activities. Wailea is a short walk from some of the best restaurants and shops in the city, so after a day of sun, meander over for a souvenir and a meal.

Kahana Beach: If you’ve ever had an interest in windsurfing, Kahana Beach is the place for you, as if offers excellent windsurfing conditions. There are lifeguards on duty so safety won’t be an issue. The beach also features convenient restrooms and showers for a quick change as well as picnic tables so you can enjoy a meal as you gaze out onto the ocean.

Hana Beach Park: For a terrific family-friendly beach day, you won’t want to miss out on Hana Beach Park. This is another one of the most popular swimming beaches on the island. There are also many local community events held at this beach, so check one out to see how the locals enjoy themselves.

Kaihalulu Beach: For a truly unique experience, don’t miss Kaihalulu Beach, Maui’s red sand stretch of sand. It was the site of a fortress and temple as well as the birthplace of civil leader Queen Ka’ahumanu. Kaihalulu is one of the new red sand beaches in the world, made so by the abundance of iron, and with the rich contrast against the blue waters, it’s truly a sight to see. The cinder cone behind the beach is constantly eroding, making the cove bigger and more fun to explore.

Things to Do in Maui

Whalers Village Museum: For a top-notch Humpback Whale education, stop at the Whalers VIllage Museum. Volunteers here can answer any questions about the animals. The 40-foot sperm whale skeleton located near the entrance is sure to impress, and it sets the scene for a trip inside in the museum. Learn about the history of whaling on the island and check out collection of harpoons, tools, sea chests, sailor journals and ship logs. Take a self-guided audio tour in many different languages as you look at artifacts, photo murals, movies and graphics depicting the life of sailors. You can even see a scale model of a whaling ship with an exact replica of the living quarters of a 25-member whaling crew.

Maui Arts and Cultural Center: To get a taste of Maui’s culture, head to the Maui Arts and Culture Center, a performing arts complex. Check out live music, an art exhibit or a variety of other events that celebrate creativity in its theaters, outdoor performance space, gallery concert stage and courtyard with bistro dining and food and beverage bars.

Old Lahaina Luau: You can’t leave Maui without experiencing a traditional Hawaiian luau like the Old Lahaina Luau. You’re sure to feel the Hawaiian values of hookipa (hospitality) and pookela (excellence) as you enjoy a delicious fire-roasted feast.

Kepaniwai Heritage Gardens Park: Bring the whole family to Kepaniwai Heritage Gardens Park to learn about the island’s cultural and ethnic heritage. As you move through the park you’ll see a traditional Hawaiian hale, a New England-style missionary home, Japanese gardens with stone pagodas, a Filipino farmer’s hut and a Chinese pavillion with a statue of Sun Yat-sen, a revolutionary hero.You and your family can enjoy a lovely meal together in the park’s picnic area surrounded by natural beauty. The park also features the Hawaii Nature Center, where kids can experience exhibits geared toward them. The center also offers two-hour rainforest walks.

Haleakala National Park: At 10,023 feet above sea level, Haleakala represents Maui’s highest peak. The park reaches from the southern to eastern coastline, and makes up more than 30,000 acres of public land. In Hawaiian, the name Haleakala means “house of the sun,” originating from legend when the demigod Maui lassoed the sun across the sky from the top of the volcano to slow its descent and make the day last longer. Whether you want to hike to the apex looking out above the clouds or go horseback riding in the moonlike basin of the volcanic crater, this national park has got your day of adventure covered. Don’t forget to check the weather conditions before you head out, as the high altitude can cause heavy rain and gusty winds. It is also noticeably cooler in the park, so be sure to bring a jacket.

Royal Kaanapali Golf Course: If you like to hit a round of golf, don’t miss the world-class courses at Royal Kaanapali, designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., and Kaanapali Kai. Both offer pristine fairways and Bermuda grass on the greens, yet the 18th on the Royal can be a real doozy. Royal is often referred to as the Tournament Course, since it hosted the LPGA and Senior Tours during the 1980s.

Hana: Get away from the waves of tourists in Hana, a small town on the eastern point of the island. There’s a famous road to the town that cuts through 52 miles of vast rain forests, amazing pools and narrow bridges. Despite its size, Hana is packed with plenty to do. Snorkel at the breathtaking black sand beach of Waianapanapa State Park, or swing by Hale Piilani, which is the state’s biggest temple. Bring the kids for a day of swimming and layin’ low at Hana Beach Park.

Lahaina: Though it was once an historic town, Lahaina is now speckled with contemporary art galleries, hip restaurants and shops. Take a stroll down Front Street to visit some of the old sites, such as Seaman’s Hospital and Hale Paaho, which was the Lahaina Prison. If you’re vacationing here during the winter months, the humpback whale-watching tours are a must!
