When you walk into this oceanfront townhouse the first thing you notice through its expansive windows is the shimmering sea, which is so close it seems to fill up the room. Your eye is drawn across the channel to the neighbor islands of Lana`i and Moloka`i, green mountains looming out of the water. When able to drag your gaze from the panoramic exterior view, you notice the interior color scheme—watery blues, seafoam greens and energizing coral set against a backdrop of light, cool gray. It is then you realize that the colors inside echo the gorgeous vista outside. Simply jaw-dropping.
Now you’ll want to take your time absorbing each element of the Coastal themed interior design. A Sunburst mirror hanging over a Chevron wooden cabinet greets you at the entrance, signaling an of-the-moment scheme. Walking into the contemporary kitchen you take in the stainless-steel appliances, custom cabinets and high-end quartz countertops. You see a beautiful aquamarine beveled mirror covered in capiz shells, anchored below by a wooden dining table with slipcovered chairs and sapphire blue upholstered bench. Pulled toward the ocean, you walk into the living room. The sectional sofa sitting on a hand-tufted wool rug looks inviting with its overstuffed cushions and designer throw pillows. A shagreen cocktail table, mother-of-pearl floor lamp and gently distressed oyster media cabinet make it obvious that you are not in an average rental property. Your eyes linger on a textured teak lounge chair wrapped in rope that sits in an enviable, all-windows corner of the room. You think, “The perfect place for whale watching!” With a last glance before leaving, you notice that while the giclée art hanging over the sofa reflects a lovely lagoon and reef image, it cannot begin to compete with the image you see through your very own windows.
You soon discover that the remaining rooms of the home mirror the quality and beauty you have already seen. With extra-large windows, skylights and vaulted ceilings, the space is open, roomy and light as air. While you enjoy the soft breeze of the Tradewinds in an open-air environment, you also appreciate the fact that the home is cooled by a Daikin Multi-Zone air conditioning system. Your practical side also cheers the full-sized washer and dryer for your private use inside the home. With a playground like Maui at your disposal, the less time spent on laundry, the better.
Upon inspection, you see that most of the furnishings are high quality brands you recognize: Lexington, Palacek, Tommy Bahama and Massoud. You see art by Gray Malin, lighting by Hinckley and Tech Lighting, rugs by Jaipur, and bedding by Hotel Collection. When reserving you knew that the home had recently undergone an extensive renovation and refurnishing, yet the result exceeds your wildest expectations. You can hardly believe that you were fortunate enough to find such a place!
How satisfying for you to learn that the three bedrooms are well separated geographically, ensuring your privacy. The fact that there are two Master Bedrooms (each with king beds) makes sharing the home with another couple easy and comfortable; and the third bedroom with its two queen beds and the queen sofa sleeper in the Living Room offer ideal sleeping solutions for children or single adults in your party. This home-away-from-home can comfortably accommodate up to 9 guests! The thought of housing your entire family all under one roof during your Maui vacation is especially meaningful.
The two lovely bathrooms are large and well appointed, with a walk-in shower on the lower level and an oversized soaking tub/shower combination on the upper. Custom tile work, quartz and granite countertops, and windows with views of ocean and sky make you want to linger, even in these rooms. Thick towels, complimentary soap, hair dryers, and even makeup mirrors are generously provided for your use.
Deciding to more fully explore the kitchen, you open the dark gray, soft-close cabinets and find them fully stocked. Lovely China dinnerware, high-quality stainless-steel flatware, stemless wine glasses, cutlery, cookware…the list goes on and on. There are even some spices left by thoughtful previous guests, providing one less thing for you to purchase. It suddenly occurs to you: Oceanfront dining is always a special treat! Right away you plan for your first meal to take place on the Lanai.
You barbeque local fish and enjoy cocktails at the new pool side grills while some in the family swim in the pool and the children play on the grassy lawn nearby. Upon returning home, you all sit down together at the dining table on the Lanai. It seems easy to offer up a prayer of thanks or join in a toast of celebration as you watch the sun sink over the ocean, turning the sky into a blaze of color.
Later, when the sound of waves lapping the shore has almost lulled you to sleep, you realize that you have not been this relaxed in a very long time. Thank goodness that the end of your first day in Paradise brings with it the promise of more to come. Your vacation is only just beginning!
