About Carolyn Butterfield
I just purchased this unit and am new to the rental business. Because I've always been a renter and not an owner, I think I have a good grasp on what is expected when you're renting. I get it that this is a big investment when you book a vacation property. I want to do everything possible to make your stay a memory that will last a lifetime.
Carolyn Butterfield purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Carolyn Butterfield chose Maalaea
I've stayed at this complex many times and couldn't believe my luck when an oceanfront unit became available to purchase. I'm not getting any younger, so a ground floor unit was especially attractive as this complex does not have an elevator. The close proximity to everything on the island as well as the million dollar oceanfront location are everything I've ever dreamed of and more.
What makes this Condo unique
You can sit on the lanai in the morning with a cup of coffee and watch the sunrise over Haleakala. You can walk the beach in the early mornings and sometimes not see a single other person. It's truly what you dream of a Hawaiian vacation. There is a banana tree right next to the lanai, so feel free to pick one to go on your morning cereal. This is a smaller complex, so there is never a crowd in the pool. I usually have it all to myself. There's hardly ever more than 3-4 people on the beach, so you can feel free to stretch out, surf, paddleboard or snorkel. The turtles hang out all day on the reef that is within wading distance. Often they come up onto the sand to sleep so you can see them up close.

Lovely in every way.
I am hesitant to tell all about this condo. We want to come back often and stay longer. I would be sad if this particular unit was unavailable because it gets such great reviews. Fabulous location. Wonderful recent renovation. Beautifully decorated. The jewel of this complex. Our hostess has been easy to communicate with and most welcoming.
Amazing views and comfortable condo!
The views were amazing from the lanai. The condo is very comfortable and has everything you need. You can literally walk out the door and down the beach. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
Thanks for staying! I'm really glad that you enjoyed your vacation. I hope to see you again. Mahalo, Carolyn Butterfield
Wonderful location and just right for a quiet restful vacation. Indoor fans need better controls and it would help to have a little brochure about the workings and location of things in the condo.
Thanks for the input. I sincerely appreciate you letting me know what I can improve upon. Since I'm a relatively new owner I've had my hands full trying to make everyone's stay as comfortable as possible. I was at the condo recently and left some instructions for the remotes for the cable, Wi-Fi and fans. I also left a little note on how to start the dishwasher. Hopefully that will help! I hope to have you as a guest again in the near future!

Great location, very clean unit with all you need
Overall the property was very clean, everything we needed was provided. The location was fabulous, right on the beach and short driving distance to Kihei and Lahaina.
The only thing we kind of had a problem with was that with the unit being where it is, all the chairs and bbq area were right in front of our lanai, so there were always people congregated right outside our lanai and bedroom window, making it hard to sleep in in the morning because of all the noise, or have much privacy at all.
Carolyn was very helpful with any questions we had and answered our emails in a timely manner.
During the high season there tends to be people on the front lawn. We do have a patrol at night that makes sure that the pool closes at 9 pm and all noise has to be at a minimum at 10 pm. I find myself alone on the lanai most mornings until after 7:30 am, and then it's usually Thomas (the groundskeeper) and a few people enjoying a morning cup of coffee.
The pool doesn't reopen until 9 am, so it's normally pretty quiet in the mornings.
Thanks for being my guest!
Low key, casual and comfortable corner unit
Very clean, lots of light, quiet, breezy, comfortable, good location away from the hustle and bustle of larger centres, yet easy access to main highway.
10 minute walk to guided whale watching and snorkelling excursions at Ma'alaea Bay.
Welcoming and friendly owner and approachable staff at main office.
Only downside is the location is directly underneath flight path.
Thanks for staying at my condo. It sounds like you had a great time. Unfortunately, we are on an island and the flight path is pretty hard to avoid. Depending on the trade winds, the airport shifts the approaches and departures. I can go for days and not hear a plane, then the next day, I hear 5 or 6. I guess I've gotten used to it, or just let the sound of the waves drown it out! lol
Great location and wonderful condition.
We stayed at this place just before Christmas. Would definitely recommend it to anyone: condo itself is clean and comfortable. Close to the airport. At the end of the Street, pretty quiet. Maui aquarium is a short walk away. It has everything you might need for cooking. The beach is right outside, steps away. We have seen lots off whales right of the shore. Turtles come every morning and night, so you can swim with them all you want. Sugar Beach, that starts right there, stretches for several miles. Long walks on the beach are priceless.
I would definitely recommend this to my friends and hope to go back eventually.
I'm so glad you had a great vacation and I would love to welcome you back at anytime.
Centrally located on a quiet dead end street. Only 15 minutes from the airport, 12 minutes to Kihei, and 15 minutes to Lahaina.
