About Matt, Georgene and Tim

Having been in the travel business for 30 years, The Hawaiian Island was our speciality. We were married on the Big Island and managed a timeshare on Kauai and Maui. Once the timeshare expired, we purchased the condo from the Owner/Builder of the Pohailani Complex. It has been remodeled with Tiled bath, Lanai, hardwood floors and complete kitchen remodel.

Matt, Georgene and Tim purchased this studio in 2007

Why Matt, Georgene and Tim chose West Maui

As previous stated, we purchased our condo from the owner/builder of the Pohailani Complex. We love the location of West Maui. It's close to the many activities Maui has to offer and the Oceanfront location makes it spectacular to view the beautiful sunsets from our huge Lanai. It's like a seperate room with a double lounger.

What makes this studio unique

Whales off your lanai during the winter December-March and watch the Turtles that feed below from the Lanai. Walking distance to everything you need and minutes by car or bike to the best beaches and golf on the islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved mauicondo209! It was very comfortable and clean. The huge lanai was a great place to relax and have meals. The view was incredible! If we did nothing else, we could sit for hours and stare at the waves and the turtles. It is centrally located on the west side of the island, so it's any easy and short trip to Lahaina and Ka'anapali. Parking was a cinch. It was free and conveniently located to the unit. We definitely give it two thumbs up!

Looking forward to our next visit.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful studio condo with a fabulous huge lanai! Although ideally, this would be a perfect studio for two people, we were there with our children. With the huge lanai, it didn't feel cramped. It was almost like having a second room. Definitely much bigger than a hotel room, with the added bonus of a kitchen. The price and the view made this a wonderful affordable option for our family! We spent many many hours just watching the turtles and whales put on a show from the lanai. Note that there is only two beach towels and a limited amount of bedding if you are using the sofa bed. We bought boogie boards at Costco for the kids to use and left them at the condo. Hopefully future guests will enjoy them. Very close drive to Napili Beach which quickly became our favorite place. Great snorkeling with turtles and fun boogie boarding when the surf is up.

Fell asleep at night to the sound of the waves in the very comfortable bed. Can't wait to return one day!

Everything we could have asked for

  • 5 of 5

After an extensive research of different units in Maui, we chose to stay at Pohailani Maui unit 209. We wanted to stay as close as possible to the water and unit 209 was the closest we found. The view was AMAZING! We watched the sunset every night from the Lanai (balcony). The unit had everything we needed - several bath towels, beach towels, umbrella, chairs, cooler, boogie boards. Thanks to those who left the boogie boards, we definitely enjoyed them. We added a child boogie board to the collection that my son used. Bed was comfortable. We woke up refresh each morning with no back pain. Although the parking spot was small, it wasn't a hassle for us. We rented a 4 door Nissan Versa. We dropped passengers out before we pulled in the spot. Easy peasy! Definitely rent a small car though so it won't be a problem. We would definitely stay in Unit 209 again the next time we are in Maui.

Honeymoon cocoon

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast staying at this place, overlooking the beautiful ocean and creating romantic memories with the sunset right in front of us, unobstructed. The house has everything you need, the bed is comfy and the kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed and appreciated that the owners had provided beach chairs and umbrella, cooler and snorkeling gears for our use. I would love to stay there again. Much much much better than a hotel.

Best Place. Best Stay..

  • 5 of 5

A " Great Value." There is nothing left to want. This place is. Clean, Comfortable, Very well equipped, They have thought of everything to make your stay GREAT.. Turtles at your front door. Great Snorkeling at your front door. Big reefs to explore. This has to be both the best value, and the best place to chill out. Now, the parking spot. It is tight, but it is a pull thru spot. Pull up dump your people / stuff off. Back in passenger side close, and get out. I am 6-4, 265 LBS.. I had no problem This is as close to the stairs as you can get.. The parking I thought was great.. Will go back in a heart-beat.. Thank You for providing such a Great place to stay..

Amazing, spectacular

  • 5 of 5

This condo was amazing! It was very clean and well equipped with everything you need to cook with. The view from the porch was spectacular! We had dinner almost every night on the porch watching the gorgeous sunsets. We loved visiting the sea turtles in the backyard every evening. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Maui :) This condo is perfect!

We had an incredible stay in Maui! Since we left we keep asking ourselves, "Remind me again why we don't live in Maui?" :) The condo was awesome. Beautiful, smart, comfortable set up for us as a couple. We spent most of our time on the huge lanai watching the water directly below: breakfast/coffee in the AM, dinner/wine in the PM. The lanai faces west so you get the sunset over the water every night! There is no beach, per se, right outside the condo, rather a stone wall against which the waves crash. But about 100 ft on either side of the complex you can access the water and swim. There were turtles there EVERY DAY and we snorkeled next to them on multiple occasions watching them eat! The parking spot was indeed tight. I knocked the side mirror off my rental twice the first day. Thankfully they pop back on. But if you get someone to guide you in/out and line up beforehand as straight as possible then you can do fine and squeeze out of the car. The WiFi was spotty so I ended up using my phone as a hot spot for my laptop. But those difficulties pale in comparison to how much we enjoyed the condo. If it were for sale, I'd probably start pawning everything I had in order to buy it. Can't wait to come back! Mahalo!
