Overview

About the property

HUGE direct Oceanfront views of the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai.

Great place to relax and unwind. Watch whales, turtles, and sea life – right from your own lanai!

Located between Lahaina and Kapalua. Direct oceanfront, you would have to be on a cruise ship to be any closer!

Our 2nd floor unit give you an incredible view of what you're coming to Maui to experience -- AMAZING views of the ocean!

Completely renovated, our condo is a touch of luxury in paradise. The condo has been luxuriously appointed for your stay. Enjoy coffee on the lanai in the morning and a cocktail in the evening. From sunrise to sunset you'll enjoy your stay here.

Hear the waves crashing while you sleep. Watch the most amazing sunsets! While we can't guarantee it, we encounter sea turtles on almost a daily basis in front of our condo. We’ve seen many whales from our balcony/lanai. And there is great snorkeling right out front.

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!

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!

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

Great restaurants are within walking distance; Maui Brewing Company is "stumbling distance" from our condo. They have great food and beer! Hawaiian Village Coffee Shop is very close. Mi-So-Phat Sushi is about a block away. There is also pizza, fast food and asian food close by too. Make sure to get reservations at Mama’s Fish House in Paia early! This is the toughest place to get into on the entire island!

We have a very descriptive information letter that we send to all of our guests with information on the area; what to do, beaches, out of the way things to do, “secret beaches”, hikes, where to eat, what restaurants need reservations, etc.

We are less than 5 miles to Old Lahaina Town and the Kapalua airport is less than a mile away. Endless activity options are just steps away. This is a perfect location for your Hawaiian getaway.

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.

There is public transportation. We are right on a bus line. Parking is included for one vehicle. Uber is now on Maui too!

About Maria Russell

We are business owners in the Seattle Washington Area. We have two kids and three dogs. We travel 3-4 times per year and like to go some place warm at least once a year -- because it rains a LOT in Seattle! We do a lot of our business through e-mail and "the cloud" so great Internet access is a MUST HAVE for us.

We like culture, music and off-beat things. Especially if it involves good food!

We own multiple condos in the area. We love this area of Hawaii and Maui in particular. We know almost all of our neighbors and have spent a lot of time hiking and eating our way around the island.

The tropical plants around our building are amazing which is what brought us to this particular condo.

We are here as much as possible and around the area almost all winter.

Maria Russell purchased this condo in 2017

Why Maria Russell chose Lahaina

We work hard and need a place to relax and get away from the hustle and speed of everything. This is it!

Maui is an amazing place and it's hard to find a property that fits our personality. We love this area on the West Side of Maui because of the tradewinds that blow through here and that it is more tropical than other areas of the island and not as hot.

It's not in the big resort areas but there are some GREAT restaurants within walking distance and the snorkeling and surfing are world class right out front!

What makes this condo unique

West Maui is quiet and the beaches are a lot less crowded than other areas on the island. The best part of this area are the calm trade winds that seem to blow most of the time and keep the area comfortable.

And we are very close to many good restaurants, beaches and surf breaks - All of the things we like about Hawaii!

Beautiful condo that lefting us looking forward to returning.

  • 5 of 5

The condo exceeded our expectations. The very first thing you noticed when you walked in was the clean smell. Everything was top notch, first class. We have stayed in this complex before and knew that we would be able to sit on the deck every morning and watch the ocean, see some whales and turtles. The complex is extremely quiet and very well maintained. The proximity to the small beach is perfect and we were often the only people on it. We look forward to returning to this condo at our first opportunity.
