What a view
We were are group of 4 staying here for 10 days. Woke up every morning to a beautiful view and perfect for whale watching. Saw whales almost every morning. A few staples in the cupboard and a welcome gift in fridge that included banana bread and coffee just enough for one pot. Beds were comfortable and portable air conditioning was sufficient. We really only had our breakfasts in the condo and returned at night, so it was a nice place for us to lay our heads and shower. We would stay again if we return to Maui. It would be nice if there was some sort of lightning on the patio for night caps. We bought a candle at Target and that was good for us. Another thing is throwing out all your uneaten food at then of your stay. I hated this, we asked some neighbors that appeared to be just arriving if the wanted some unopened food. They happily took it. All in all it was a good stay.
Maui 2020 Whales
Very nice older property. Beds and furniture were comfortable and kitchen was well supplied. Welcome gift in the refrigerator was a nice touch. Grounds were very nice and clean, parking and directions easy to follow. Absolutely the best whale watching view from the Lani that we have ever had in our many trips to Maui. Nice quiet property and very close to restaurants and shops as advertised.
Watch the whales!
Beautiful balcony that we would spend the early mornings watching whales (end of January visit). View cannot be beat. Very convenient location to see entire island and only about 20 minutes from the airport. Easy walk to Haycroft beach park. Easy drive to Kihie and south. Bedroom does have louvered door separating it from living room and private 2nd bed room. Would stay here again.
The good, bad and ugly
This property is a mixed bag. The good... Great location with easy access to the entire island and walking to the harbor and all it’s shops and restaurants. The unit is well supplied with dishes pots pans and utensils. The bad.... the interior is drab and the furniture is from way back in the last century. No lighting on the patio made eating dinner outside impossible and some of the patio chairs were broken. The ugly.... first the unit is advertised as air conditioned when in fact it has 2 portable floor units that don’t cool all the unit. Second it’s advertised with washer and dryer when in fact there is a coin operated laundry on the floor. Third, upon arrival we notified the owner that the louvered door to the master was missing a panel which made it pretty much worthless. While she said the handyman was fixing it and would come the next day to replace it he arrived 3 days later right before we were leaving the next morning. We additionally noted that bulbs were burned out and the spray nozzle on the kitchen faucet was hanging loose but the handyman stated he did not have bulbs and was not authorized to fix the faucet.
Overall we enjoyed our stay because of the great location but were very disappointed with the condition of the unit. In fact this was probably the poorest condition of a VRBO we have ever seen.
Aloha Charles and glad you enjoyed the location and well-equipped kitchen. That kitchen faucet can be a challenge and needs to be situated just right so it doesn't hang down.
Although we would love to say we have antiques in the condo, the living room furniture is only 2 years old and guest bedroom 3. The washer/dryer is located in a laundry room across from the condo's location and that is stated on the listing so guest's can decide ahead of time if this fits their needs. There are also laundry rooms located on all 4 floors for convenience.
It has been a challenge keeping up with repairs during the holiday season with guests arriving and departing on the same day. When we were notified of the need for the louver door repair our handyman needed to remove the one panel and take it to his shop for repair and returned it as quick as possible. A challenge for those of us who live here is getting used to the slower pace here compared to the mainland. And we can understand when guests prefer for us to wait until they leave to address items like light bulb replacement.
Thnaks for the heads up about some broken chairs on the lanai. Since we now are aware we'll have that checked immediately.
Sorry this condo was not a good fit. We want everyone to have the best time in our Paradise!
We loved our stay! The condo was just about perfect! We loved the beautiful views and central location! We would definitely come back to stay here again when we visit Maui!
