About Mike & Stephanie Jeffers
We are Mike and Stephanie Jeffers, and we live in Carefree, AZ with our 2 daughters. When we first visited Maui together almost 10 years ago, we fell in love with Maalaea Bay and began dreaming of owning a place here one day. After years of determination, hard work, and planning, we were finally able to turn this dream into a reality in October 2018. Our condo's name, Crew Rest Maui, comes from our family’s deep history in the world of aviation. Mike is a pilot, both in the Air National Guard and for Southwest Airlines, and several generations before him were aviators as well. The term “crew rest” refers to the appropriate downtime and rest required for a pilot to fly safely, and we like to think that our condo and this beautiful location on Maui provide that kind of relaxation and rejuvenation to everyone who stays here.

Why Mike & Stephanie Jeffers chose Maalaea
We fell in love with Maui the very first time we visited. This condo is a dream come true for us, and we treat it as a true labor of love. When you visit, you will see and feel the level of quality and comfort we strive to deliver. We have invested in new furniture, decor, household goods, etc to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. We've been staying in VRBO properties for years, and we understand the little touches that mean so much to guests. We've worked hard to incorporate those things into our unit to provide a superior vacation experience!
What makes this Condo unique
Our unit is VERY unique because of its location in the Kanai a Nalu complex. Our unit is one of the few corner units, which provide unique features that other units don't. One, you only have one shared wall, and in our unit BOTH bedrooms have ocean views. Be aware that in the majority of units in KAN, the second bedroom faces the parking lot. Two, the front door of our unit is at the end of the hall, with zero traffic in front of it. In Maalaea, you will enjoy leaving the front and back doors open to let the tradewinds blow through the unit thanks to the screen doors. But in most units, there's constant traffic in front of your door, with people peeping in. Our unit is at the end of the hall, meaning there's no traffic in front of your door. Three, our unit features unobstructed ocean views from the entire kitchen and living area. Depending on location, many units in the complex face towards the pool area or even other buildings. Look through our photos and you'll realize we have a superior view. You can literally see Molokini from the sofa and watch surfers while you load the dishwasher! You're traveling to Maui--get the best view possible!

Location location location
Communication with owners is quick, check in smooth, beds are comfortable and enjoyed listening to the ocean all night, view from lanai is lovely. The owners greeted us with a box of macadamia chocolates and a bottled water on the table. We were able to find a parking spot easily. There's an elevator with a luggage cart. The condo has beach towels, boogie boards, masks and snorkels, beach chairs, some spices, washer dryer, and more.
We loved this condo.
Family stay in Maui
We came for the Christmas break 2019 and enjoyed our time in this unit. The place is very well equipped and the new A/C makes things nice on the warm days. There are lots of beach towels and beach equipment so we didn't have to purchase anything. The kitchen is very well stocked so again there was minimum for us to purchase other than our groceries. The property owner/manager was very easy to deal with.
The only negative was the beach and beach access out front had washed away due to high surf leaving only the road access to the beach behind the property but what can you do about nature.
Perfect location and property
This was our first time on Maui and it couldn’t have been better! Crew Rest is in the perfect location and an absolutely beautiful place to stay. It was a perfect hole for a week away for our family of 6! The condo was clean and had everything we needed. The pool was a favorite with the young ones when the waves got too high. Breakfast on the patio and walls to the beach were amazing. Thank you!
Family of 5 stay in Maalaea Maui
Our family of 5 with 3 teenagers really enjoyed our stay at the property, especially the beds even the hide away bed. They were comfortable and allowed great night sleep except for the birds outside on a few mornings. The location is great if you’re looking for a quiet central location to go north, south or to the airport area. The condo was nicely decorated and modern with a few nice touches. The 3 individual zones A/C at night was great to cool things down at bedtime especially with the birds outside in the morning. When we visited, the fridge was pretty well stocked with condiments but we purchased 2 sets of snorkel gear and left them behind. The pool was heated and warm and the ocean waves were just feet from the lanai.
