"We were very comfortable in Nikta's well cared for and thoughtfully equipped condo. It was clean and nicely furnished. The beds were very comfortable, there were plenty of linens, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals, including an assortment of spices and basic ingredients in the pantry. The appliances are all fairly new and modern. The gas grills by the pool were clean and well maintained. There is also a collection of beach gear such as chairs, mats and toys on the Lanai. It was truly a home away from home.
Nikta had a welcome basket with fruit, snacks and coffee waiting for us as well as fresh flowers in all the rooms. The view from the Lanai is very nice, overlooking Ma'alaea bay and facing towards the northwest. We opened the windows on both sides of the unit and enjoyed the cooling breeze during our stay. We only needed to turn on the AC the first night we arrived, because the windows had all been closed.
We appreciated the location. Ma'alaea is quiet and conveniently located between Kihei and Lahaina, but without their crowds, and only about 20 minutes from the airport. It did get very windy some of the days we were there, but as noted above that keeps it cool. There is not much beach in front of the condo, but the sandy beach at nearby Haycraft park was fun and only about a 10 minute walk away."
