"This condo is exactly what we were looking for for our stay on Maui! The location is very central and it is easy to get anywhere on the island from here: the airport/grocery shopping, Hana Hwy, Mt. Haleakala, Lahaina and beyond, and Kihei. The condo itself was great! Very clean with views of your car on one side and views of the pool and ocean on the other. Bathrooms were large and very clean. All windows may be opened for great breezes through the condo. We stayed 4 nights and only turned on the air conditioning 1 time for 1 hour to cut down some humidity. The owner was great to work with, responded quickly to emails, and his email with instructions sent before the trip was detailed and so helpful! Condo has everything you may need including dishes, linens, beach towels, boogie board, ice packs, cooler, beach umbrellas, and sand toys. Toiletries' that were provided were hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, and dishwasher detergent. There was also sunscreen but that may have been left by a previous renter. The condo complex seemed busy with families and kids were quite loud out by the pool during the day and early evening. However, things definitely seemed quiet by 10pm (except on New Year's Eve, not surprisingly), quiet hours and we never were kept awake at night by noise. The beach the condo complex on is great! You can walk a long way and it's pretty nice and sandy!
The nearby village of Ma'alaea was very cute with several restaurants, tourist/gift shops, and a little craft market with locals selling their craft items (pearl, stone, shell jewelry, soaps, and beach wraps and bags). There is also a branch of the Pacific Whale Foundation there where you can book boating excursions. We did the full day snorkeling and whale watching cruise, which was fantastic! We did not join the PWF but we did book online to save a small percentage on tickets. We also drove to Kihei one evening for dinner, which was a fairly quick drive. Pick up all the free brochures at the airport for lots of coupons for excursions, restaurants, and snacks. Also, check out excursion companies online, as they often offer discounts if you book online. We did this with the ziplining company Skyline Eco-Adventures Ka'anapali. Another great experience (note: don't buy the pictures ahead of time if you want them...just buy one set when you have finished your zip-lining)!
Thank you Daniel for a great vacay"
