Exceptional Maui location right on the ocean and directly across from Molokai. Watch sea turtles year round and whales in the winter and early spring directly from the lanai. Direct oceanfront, you look right down at the water. Drink coffee on the lanai in the morning watching the sunrise and have a cocktail watching the sunset in the evening.
Our condo has been recently remodeled and is stunning! One bedroom with a queen sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress in the living room. This is not a big resort. Our condo is located about half way between Lahaina and Kapalua. We are walking distance to restaurants and a small grocery store.
There is a sandy beach right down the steps at our building. You can snorkel out front too! We have beach chairs, boogie boards and snorkel gear available. We are within walking distance of Maui Dive Shop if you need anything.
Why should you stay in our condo? It's hard to compare our condo to other vacation properties from just the pictures. All of the condos in our building are unique. While they are all in the same building, many are dated and well-worn, the ground floor units suffer from privacy issues. And many owners defer maintenance and prefer to treat their properties like a hotel with little regard for the guest experience. We take great pride in keeping our vacation home clean, well maintained, comfortable and in top condition! Our condo was recently remodeled using high quality materials by a top contractor and it shows! When something wears out or looks dated, we have it replaced or repaired immediately. We provide beach towels, snorkel gear, binoculars for whale watching, boogie boards, beach chairs, extra pillows, soaps, shampoo and conditioner and much more! We have new “smart “TV’s with Netflix, even Bluetooth speakers so you can listen to YOUR music. We have installed screened security doors so that you can leave the doors open and listen to the wind and waves! There is really no comparison to most of the other condos in our building (or area) and the things that we provide for your vacation experience. Please read our reviews!
Construction Notice (Updated): There is an emergency seawall construction project scheduled for summer 2018 on the south 30-40 feet of seawall of the condominium complex. This is a small project and we anticipate that construction will occur weekdays during normal work hours (Monday through Friday 8-5) and should not interfere with anything at our condo unit although there may be some noise during the day. There is no work being done on the buildings and does not interfere with views, access to the pool, or beach access. We have deeply discounted the prices on our calendar to reflect this issue. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the construction.
Our condo is a legal short term rental in the State of Hawaii and Maui. This is very important as there are many short term rentals that do not pay these taxes and could put your stay in jeopardy. We pay the Transient Accommodations Tax (TAT) of 10.25% and the General Excise Tax of 4.17% directly to the State of Hawaii. Hawaii Tax License/registration number: GET 177-444-2496-01
The reef in front of our building is one of the premier kitesurfing and windsurfing areas on Maui. When the wind is blowing, you are in for quite a show! One of the best surfing beaches on Maui is also within walking distance. It takes a North or Northwest swell for S-Turns to work it's magic for surfing! S-Turns has both left and right break and has a sandy bottom. A typical NW swell produces 4-6 foot waves that are perfect for longboarding. This is rare on Maui!
Maui Brewing Company is "stumbling distance" from our condo. They have great food and beer! There is a local coffee shop, sushi, pizza, fast food and asian food too.
There is a bus stop and Uber is on Maui too. Most of the things you're going to want to see are significant distances apart, a car is almost necessary unless you just plan on hanging out at the condo!

There is a cleaning fee for each stay which is included in your total from Airbnb. We believe in paying a living wage to the maids that clean our condo. Hawaii is an expensive place to live and raise a family. We hope that you understand why our rates are what they are. We do not "mark up" the cleaning fee in any manner, it is the actual fee charged by our cleaning service.
Our on island management company requires that food items left in the condo be removed due to liability reasons, food allergies, health department codes, and religious or philosophical issues that may impact a guest. They will actually toss any perishable or questionable items left in the condo refrigerator or kitchen cupboards. Anything with sugar in it is also a problem due to the possibility that it will attract insects and pests. We make every attempt to provide the basics for your stay; salt, pepper, cooking oil, some spices, etc. Please remember, this a vacation home and we live 3,000 miles away - we can’t always ensure exactly what’s in the condo when you get there. Food safety is important to us and your health and we hope you understand.
We also provide, coffee for your first day, soap, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, and paper towels. We do not provide laundry detergent. Our kitchen does come fully stocked with all of the pots, pans and utensils that you will need to cook and we have a “Mr. Coffee” style coffee maker, blender, microwave, etc.
You should strongly consider shopping for your stay in Kahului (near the airport) if you’re planning on cooking or staying for an extended period. There is a Costco, Target, Wal-Mart, Whole Foods, Safeway and other “big box” stores in this area. We do have many local markets in the area but things are VERY expensive in Hawaii and Maui is the most expensive of all the Hawaiian islands. You’ll probably have “sticker shock” when you see milk for $7 a gallon for the first time.
We are usually available by phone, email or text. We may also be on the island too.
