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 Lahaina

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.

Perfect location. Could hear the waves from our bed!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was tastefully decorated with everything you could need for cooking! We arrived early and, fortunately, condo was ready. We rented a small car (read reviews from others) and that worked fine. Loved having assigned parking spot, as it was ALWAYS there for us and a quick walk up the stairs and we were at our abode! I would only recommend 1 thing to be added: a ceiling fan on the lanai. The lanai was HUGE, but due to afternoon sun, also hot. Think a ceiling hugger fan would be amazing!

We have recommended to our friends and would DEFINITELY return.

Owner's Response: Thank you Colette for your nice review of our condo. We are here now enjoying everything you mentioned, turtles, sunsets, rainbows and of course the beautiful beaches. We did a snorkel trip to Lanai the other day and saw literally hundreds of Spinner Dolphins. It was pretty spectacular. Maui is such a beautiful island and we hope you stay with us again during your next visit. Mahalo Matt Georgene and Tim

We love this condo so much! We spent a lot of time on the big lanai looking out the ocean. We saw a couple of turtles were swimming just right under the condo. We had dinner and watched the sunset on the lanai almost everyday. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was fully stocked with cookware. Great location. All in all a perfect vacation for us. We highly recommend this condo and will definitely return.

The unit is tastefully decorated and is fully equipped with everything necessary to enjoy your stay here. The second story unit is literally feet away from the ocean! The location in Kahana is perfect! Many stores, restaurants and beaches are located In this area. We will definitely consider this property again for a future trip to Maui.

Amazing Condo, perfect for couples!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here on our honeymoon a few years ago, and decided to return to condo 209 for our anniversary this year. We love the condo- very nice accommodations, beautiful view. They have everything you need for a day at the beach. We love using the grill on site as well! We intend to return again in the future.

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.
