Aloha! This charming condo is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac across the street from Sugar Beach in a small 10-unit complex. The property is beautifully landscaped, and outdoor pool meticulously maintained. Guests are encouraged to use the 6-hole putting green, poolside barbecue grills, dining tables, and lounges. Free off-street parking is available directly behind the building. The central location makes it easy to explore all the incredible restaurants, shops, golf courses, and beaches Maui has to offer. While the outdoor features and location are sure to please, the interior is equally appealing.
Upon entering this 2nd floor vacation home, you will begin to notice the attention to detail and quality amenities selected with your comfort and enjoyment in mind. From the cottage style iron bed to the granite countertops, you'll recognize instantly you made an excellent choice in affordable accommodations.
You will soon feel right at home in this sunny retreat with its understated tropical decor. The large 10' patio door in the living/dining area maximizes your view of the Pacific Ocean, pool, and courtyard area. The air conditioner with remote control features a quiet mode making it virtually soundless while keeping you cool even on the warmest days. A shared laundry building with new front-load washer and dryer, activity brochures, and books to borrow are just steps away. In addition, our housekeeper and maintenance man are available to help make your stay as worry-free as possible. This 1 bedroom unit (not a studio), is comfortable for up to 2 guests. It is organized, clutter-free, and exceptionally clean and well-maintained.
The living/dining room has been furnished with a lift-top coffee table, full sleeper sofa, rocker recliner, and drop-leaf dining table. The corner entertainment center holds a stereo/CD player, DVD player, a large selection of CDs, DVDs, board games, and playing cards. After a fun-filled day out and about, you'll be able to come home and enjoy the wall-mounted 32" cable TV.
One of the best features of this condo is the lovely view. Take your coffee or favorite ice cold beverage outside and relax in one of the cushioned swivel chairs and soak up the sights and sun. A guest closet on the lanai provides storage for sports and beach equipment including cooler with wheels, tennis rackets and balls, beach chairs, and tote with beach towels. Although smoking is strictly prohibited indoors, it is allowed on the lanai as long as it doesn't bother neighbors and the sliding door remains closed. If others complain, you will need to smoke at least 20' away from the building in the parking lot (it's the law).
Highlights of the fully furnished kitchen include granite countertops, built-in microwave, full-size refrigerator with ice maker, apartment-size dishwasher, and stove with easy-to-clean ceramic cooktop. To compliment the larger appliances, this room also includes a coffeemaker, coffee grinder, toaster, blender, slow cooker, popcorn popper, electric mixer, spices, cutlery, cooking and eating utensils, dishes, drinkware, cookware, bakeware, barbecue tools, linens, and cookbooks.
This restful space features a queen size bed with Sealy Posturepedic mattress and memory foam topper, quality bedding, queen size pillows, wicker nightstands, 2 alarm clocks (1 with dual USB ports and a multi charging cable for phones, cameras, and tablets), overhead reading lamps, wall-mounted 26" cable TV, CD player with iPhone/iPod docking station, and ceiling fan. Opposite the bed is a writing desk, phone for making unlimited free local and long distance calls to the U.S., Canada, and 30+ other countries, free high-speed internet, and wireless router. A bookcase stores a 2nd DVD player, Maui travel guides, coloring books and crayons. Boogie boards are stored under the bed.
Adjacent to the bedroom is the pretty travertine tiled bathroom with granite countertop vanity and large medicine cabinet. Enjoy the spacious soaking tub/shower, soap, shampoo and conditioner, and over-sized bath linens. The shower caddy, hair dryer, curling/flat irons, digital bathroom scale, and side table for toiletries/cosmetics are added bonuses.
No need to worry when it comes to storing clothing once you unpack. The walk-in closet has plenty of hangers and 4-drawer chest. To help make your stay convenient, you will find binoculars, wall safe, iron/ironing board, garment steamer, mesh laundry hamper, vacuum, cleaning supplies, extra blanket, beach and rain umbrellas, day backpacks, and winter outerwear for sunrise/sunset trips to Mt. Haleakala. We have also provided an emergency tote with necessary supplies, collapsible water jugs, and directions to area shelters in the unlikely event you must evacuate the area for a tsunami, flash flood, earthquake, or hurricane.

IMPORTANT MAUI VACATION RENTAL INFORMATION
Mauidipity Happens Vacation Condominium (MHVC), is located in the 10-unit Wailana Sands complex in North Kihei. It operates legally and consistently with all current County of Maui zoning ordinances and state laws. Many Maui short-term vacation rentals and B&Bs, are not located in approved zoning districts and/or owners are not paying State of Hawaii Transient Accommodation Taxes and General Excise Taxes. Be aware that illegal properties risk closure and you could find yourself without accommodations, as state and county officials and inspectors work together to enforce new policies. Travelers can copy and paste the following link into any search engine to check whether a rental being considered is located in a legal zoning district: http://thehawaiistatecondoguide.com/maui.html. Approved zoning districts are designated as Hotel, Resort, H-1, H-2, or H-M, with very few exceptions. In order for illegal rentals to operate lawfully in other zones, owners must apply to, and be approved by the County of Maui for a Conditional or B&B permit, and possess Hawaii TAT and GET (tax), identification numbers. Owners must display their permit number, if required, and both tax ID numbers prominently in their unit(s) and on all advertisements such as VRBO and HomeAway. If unable to find those numbers within an advertised listing, you may want to verify the property's legality by asking the owner or manager for them before booking.
