About Helen Welm

Aloha from Helen and Karl Welm

Northern California and Maui are our home locations

Helen Welm purchased this condo in 1999

Why Helen Welm chose Wailuku

We bought another condo in Maalaea originally in 1981 but sold it when our kids were in college. When we could afford it again we shopped all over the island but returned to peaceful Maalaea.

. The beautiful quiet beach, peaceful location, and cooling breezes called us back.

What makes this condo unique

Since we planned on staying there ourselves a lot, we did some serious upgrading to the place; a flat screen TV in every room and a modern kitchen were a must. We opened up the kitchen so you could see the ocean from there,modernized with cherry wood and granite and installed a whisper quiet Bosch dishwasher as well as a modern quiet washer and drier since we don't want to be disturbed. We love it there and we are sure you will too. Check out our guest book when you visit and leave us your comments

We have also installed a new system that provides free WiFi (with our private security code) and FREE worldwide Long Distance from our in condo phones!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were at the condo for ten days, what a great location! It had everything we needed. The central location was great, close to larger towns, restaurants, stores, etc. Great pool area and grills. We walked the beach from the front of the condo and saw whales in the bay! Awesome!

Amazing location with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect spot for being central in the island. I spent the week traveling all over and was always happy to come back to the quiet condo and beautiful beach. There marina and restaurants are within walking distance and you have easy access to the highway if you rent a car. The condo is furnished with everything you need and didn't think you would ie. cooler. The main floor is ideal and I would highly recommend this unit. I would not hesitate in renting it again. Thank you for your hospitality.

Great location, wonderful unit, friendly host, but condo has a few deferred maintenance issues

  • 4 of 5

This area of Maui is underrated in my opinion --- it is close to just about everything by car and you can walk to the Maui Ocean Center and a few local eateries and a little store/deli. There are strong breezes almost all the time in this area, but this makes the condo (which does not have central air) very cool and comfortable. The location is very quiet --- even with the windows open it was easy to sleep at night. The view from the lanai is spectacular, and the condo complex has wonderful grounds and access to a long (5 miles!) stretch of beach. I do have some concerns about the condition of the condo, and I have mentioned them to the owners. It is my hope they will respond and fix them soon. As of early June 2017, the condo is showing signs of a lot of use and it looks like it is time to replace some of the interior furnishings: the appliances, dishware and linens, and the mattresses have all seen better days. In addition, the condo was not as clean as it could be. If the owners can address these things, it will be a 5 star rental once again. As it is, it is still a great value for this location on Maui and well worth renting.

the condo was very nice, good central location

  • 4 of 5

For the most part the condo and property was very nice. The parts that needed work was the bed in the master was too soft and the sides would collapse making it hard to sleep, and also the stove in the kitchen was very efficient

efficient, took too long to reach tempe t ature and hard to fine tune. I understand i am used to gas when cooking
