Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights here and it was wonderful! The location is fabulous--so close to the ocean, pool, and Castaway Cafe. We could easily walk to other resorts, restaurants, and Whalers Village.

The condo is well-stocked, comfortable, and clean. There's a lot of storage and some great beach gear on the lanai. The view from the lanai is beautiful.

We rented a cabana for the day and it was so nice to relax by the beach in comfort! Had some great fish tacos and shared a pineapple fruit plate from the cafe.

Gina was easy to work with, quick to answer questions, and very helpful. The front desk staff was also very friendly & helpful.

We've stayed at several different locations on Maui, and this was a favorite for sure. Highly recommend!

Maui Ohana

  • 5 of 5

We hesitate to give this review, lest the secret get out about this wonderful slice of paradise in Maui. The location is perfect, amenities top notch, beautifully decorated, modern and very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay at Joe & Gina's. Perfect.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the condo and the complex's grounds and amenities. Just beautiful and so relaxing....everything one needs to enjoy their vacation. The view is unbeatable, the condo is nicely furnished, the pool area is relaxing, and the onsite restaurant is affordable and good. Joe and Gina are excellent to work with and very helpful. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Maui.

Paradise at the end of Rabow's Rainbow

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful location! The pictures in the description are great but they don't show the trees swaying gently, the little birds flying around, the sound of families playing in the pool, or the waves crashing in the distance. What a wonderful experience. We felt right at home from the very beginning. We actually spent more time on the lanai than we did inside. (although the inside was beautifully decorated!) We were able to walk to Whaler's Village for dinner and shopping, and ride the cute green tram when we had too many shopping bags to carry home.

We will definitely return!!

Best Honeymoon Spot Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay here for our honeymoon, and it was nothing short of paradise. The condo is immaculate and extremely well kept—absolutely beautiful. The views from the patio are amazing, probably one of the best of all the units. The location is close to anything you might need from town, very convenient; however, it’s tucked back by the beach, so it’s quiet and private. Also has an amazing pool with outdoor café/restaurant and bar. It’s less than 2 minutes to walk to the beach, and there is a place to rent paddle boards, kayaks, etc. (reasonably priced). We can’t wait to return to our home away from home in Maui!

Great position and amenities but dark and a little dated

  • 4 of 5

This unit is in quite a good position in the resort, only 1 flight of stairs overlooking the pool and ocean just behind the pool. Well stocked with everything we needed from beach chairs umbrella, pool toys etc, which was great. Owners fantastic to deal with, communication excellent. The negative for me and it was quite a pain, was this unit is very dark, and the lighting poor. If getting up early go go on tour it was difficult to find things. The unit has all dark wood which seems to make it worse. I had to go downstairs to the resort bathroom for better lighting or out on the lanai if there was enough light to get some decent lighting for makeup etc which was a pain. Lighting in the bathroom terrible.It all appeared a little dated, but I suppose we don't spend a lot of time in the room.

That is my only negative with this property, and for us it was not ideal. conveniently

Located with access to free shuttle to shops and restaurants ( 7 mins) you could walk it if energetic.

The pool is lovely, plenty of deck chairs and shade.

The beach is clean and a pleasure to swim in. It was great having the deck chairs for our use.
