Amazing condo with a view
This condo was absolutely perfect. My wife and I were celebrating our son’s 1 year old birthday and this condo came with everything we needed (pack n play, portable high chair, etc). Being on the top floor and end unit made for a quiet and peaceful stay. We definitely appreciated all the updated appliances and decor. Would stay here again!
My children and I had a wonderful first visit to Maui, and the property. The condo appears exactly as the pictures represent. The unit is easy to check in to, tastefully decorated, and well stocked with necessities. While there isn’t a dining room table, the breakfast bar and lanai table were fine, and the property has a couple of outdoor tables by the bbq’s/pool/ocean, that were almost always available. While the private area of beach is difficult to swim at because of the lack of shoreline and rockiness, there is a beach park a block away and the pool lovely. The area is very quiet, and close to the marina and aquarium. That’s about it for walkable activities, though. However, the drive to resorts/shopping/surfing/good snorkeling etc. is only about 15 minutes, and I found it nice to get out of the fray of the resort areas. I couldn’t recommend the property more!
Aloha Amanda, Thank you for staying in our condo. We're glad that you had a wonderful time. Please come again.

Would definitely book again in the future.
This condo was very well situated, centrally located on the island, making it easy to get to all the sights, shopping etc in a short drive. The beach was nice, swimmable and walkable for miles. We saw lots of turtles out front and most mornings saw great shows of the whales. The area is generally quiet, and a short walk up the street there is a convenience store and a few shops and restaurants on the marina. The condo was very well outfitted with everything we needed. There were plenty of utensils, appliances and bbqs which made it easy to prepare our own meals or to pack up a picnic for a day out. There were also toys and snorkel gear, a bonus that we did not need to pack our own. The extra items provided were beyond what we expected. Very modern and beautifully decorated, the amenities were mostly brand new and more improvements were coming with installers arriving just as we were departing. In the end we did have a small misunderstanding which we were able to work out with owner and property manager quickly. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would book this property again in the future.
Thank you for staying in our condo. We're glad that you had a good vacation. Come again!

Well maintained and equipped condo on the ocean with spectacular view.
Lots of positives about this property. The unit is spotless; the kitchen is terrific - recently remodeled and well-equipped. There is a Bosch washer and dryer - very, very quiet - and the host provided laundry detergent! The lanai has a spectacular view of the ocean. The property is clean, not too big or too crowded. The location is ideal as a launching place no matter which part of the island you want to see. The Maui Ocean Center (not to be missed) is just down the road. And right next door is a wildlife refuge, meaning no buildings and a couple of miles of pristine beach to walk on each day (which we did each morning). That was divine. A few things to keep in mind. There is no dining room table - just a breakfast bar - so if, like one of our party, you like gathering "round" a table, you will have to look elsewhere. There is a small table on the lanai with bar height chairs but only 2 of them (there were 3 of us). We ended up putting some folding beach chairs on the lanai so we could sit together and enjoy our drinks and the lovely view. Also, while it is an oceanfront property and there is a sandy beach, the ocean floor was so rocky, the water not clear enough to see and avoid the rocks and the current so strong that we quickly abandoned ocean swimming for the small but uncrowded pool. There are lovely swimming beaches a few miles in either direction, of course - Big Beach is the best. All in all a very good value and a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.
Thank you for staying in our condo and for the suggestions. We are planning on adding an extra seat or two to the lanai in May.

Wonderful, masterfully decorated property. Saw many whales from the lanai!
Amazing view, beautiful condo, convenient location
This is a lovely, comfortable, beautifully decorated, well stocked condo. It is perfect for 2 couples or a family. My husband and I stayed here with our 2 young sons, who also loved the space. The condo is stocked with anything you might need for a child - a pack and play, booster chair with attachable tray, sand toys, and body boards. Everything you need for the beach is here, including beach chairs, towels, and a cooler.
The location of the condo is better than we could have hoped for. It is centrally located in Ma'alaea. While Ma'alaea has little to offer by way of restaurants (although the General Store in Ma'alaea has amazing fish tacos and delicious iced coffee), you can easily drive to towns in South or West Maui in about 15-20 minutes. It is also easily accessible to the airport, Hana Highway, Iao Valley, and many other attractions that would be much more difficult and time consuming to get to if you stayed in West Maui or South Maui. We debated staying in West Maui and are so glad we stayed where we did because of the easy accessibility to everything. With 2 young children, we try to minimize long car rides. This location made it possible to explore Maui and not be in the car for excessively long periods of time.
The unit is an end unit on the top floor (4th floor) so it is quiet. (And yes, there is an elevator to the 4th floor). The view is spectacular. We could see whales from the patio almost every morning and evening. The king bed and pillows are super comfortable, and we slept very well! There is access to a community pool and grilling area, but most importantly (at least to us and our children) there is access to the beach. The beach almost feels like a private beach since there are only condo buildings along this portion of the beach (no resorts). So the beach was wide open, which was wonderful.
Lastly, Luke is wonderful to work with. He is very responsive, proactive, and kind. The happiness of the people renting this unit really matters to him, which is refreshing.
I would absolutely recommend this unit!
Thank you for the kind words. We're glad that you had a good time on your Maui family vacation.
