About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Not a Hotel, Not a Highrise, a 'Home'.

When we say it's a 'home', we're reflecting on the many comments our guests have fed back over the years. They've returned to their 'home back home' with suntans, rich memories of the tours and activities they've chosen to experience. But they also take along memories of just having been free to relax with no hassles or elevator rides, or lengthy walks to the beach, or the garage. Ours is a kickback place where you call the shots.

With only eighteen units in the complex, we offer seclusion and privacy if that's your desire, or, if you choose, you'll easily find some great fun right there on the premises. Here's a sample of what can be found:

Stairs to the water lead to snorkeling, board and body surfing, kayaking, surf fishing. All are enjoyed just off our shore.

There's whale watching in winter and early spring.

Turtles come visit and dolphins are seen jumping not far away.

You're invited to join the fun at our resident manager's weekly sunset PuPu parties next to the pool.

It's just a short walk to the three-times-weekly Farmer's Market.

Your daily needs can be fulfilled at nearby grocery and convenience stores, delis and locally popular take-out eateries.

Frommer's Travel Guide named our Hoyochi Nikko Ocean Condos as one of their highest recommended properties. Maui Revealed gives Hoyochi Nikko their prestigious Gold Bar rating for excellence. Independent rating service 'Family Trips' gives Hoyochi Nikko, the Hyatt Regency and the Sheraton Maui a B+. with a side note 'Great!' It's where I would want to stay in Maui!'

About Pam Steffen

My husband Jay and I live in the Northern California wine country, love the outdoors and our many return trips to our home away from home on the Maui beach front. We especially enjoy sharing our little slice of Maui Paradise with our guests, who continue to tell us how much they enjoy themselves during their stay. We welcome all our repeat visitors, and eagerly look forward to welcoming you first timers into our Island family. Aloha! Pam and Jay

Pam Steffen purchased this condo in 1999

Why Pam Steffen chose West Maui

First it was Maui, and our love affair with its unique variety of tropical landscape, country roads and dramatic ocean scenery. Add to that the wide choice of activities from snorkeling, surfing, championship golf, hiking, fishing along with plain old soaking up rays and napping on the beach. Our best discovery on Maui was when we stepped through the front door of our beachfront condo. We were treated to a postcard view of azure water with the sun setting between the islands of Lanai and Molokai. It was love at first sight. We now welcome you to that same experience. May it be everything you're looking for and more.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo (one of only 18 on the two-story oceanfront property) has often been described as 'The Honeymoon Nest' because of its top floor, end-unit privacy. Other benefits we brag about are: a 20-foot vaulted wood ceiling, a remodeled kitchen, bath and air-conditioned bedroom.

Very well equipped and beautifully decorated condo

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a stay at this condo and we were extremely pleased. It has a great bar table on the lanai to watch whales and the sunset. I would definitely stay here again!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are sitting on the lanai as I write this, watching the surf roll in and trying to motivate ourselves to go to the car and leave for the airport because we don't want to leave. We feel so fortunate to have found this place on our first trip to Maui. It's the kind of place you can look for in vain for years. We lucked out the first time. There is no need to search further. We will certainly be coming back.

Pam was terrific to work with as we booked the property. We arrived to a spotlessly clean, attractively decorated home overlooking the ocean and a marvelous view to the west, with unbelievable sunsets if the clouds are right. The building and grounds are very quiet and everyone staying here seems mellow and friendly. We experienced much of nature's variety, including the ebb and flow of our beach sand! Lahaina town is a short drive south - a charming place to stroll, look at art and get a bite to eat. We recommend a show in town called 'Ulelana for an amazing overview of Hawaiian culture and history by fabulous performers. Various necessities can be found about a ten minute walk south of the complex - a "Farmer's Market" and deli, coffee shop, places to rent snorkling/surf equipment, places to eat (we recommend the crab cakes at "The Fish Market, Maui"). Three or so miles up the road north, there are slack key guitar concerts at the Napili Kai resort every Wednesday night that we loved. Next door to Napali Kai is Merriman's restaurant - a place for a special dinner or pupus at the bar. We opted for pupus at the bar three times during our two week stay. Meriman's has impeccably great food, though it will put a dent in the pocketbook.

We could go on and on about the merits of this place, but we are a little reluctant to let the secret out.

Even Better the Second Time!

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Maui and to Pam's condo was three years ago, and it was so perfect we came back this year. Hoyochi Nikko is quiet, friendly, conscientiously tended by the resident manager, and the view from the condo is breathtaking. We spent many hours on the lanai, listening to the birds and watching the waves. We snorkeled right out in front (and to the right), and encountered colorful fish and several sea turtles! Pam's recommendation for fabulous take-out from Okazuya just up the road was spot on - we've been there twice and echo her recommendation. We found Prison Street Pizza in Lahaina, and would recommend it, too. Find your own Maui favorites - but Pam's condo at Hoyochi Nikko will be the high-point of your trip.

Could not ask for more! Amazing View, Private Beach, Beautiful Sunsets, Turtles & Only 18 units!

  • 5 of 5

When we started looking for a place to stay in Maui we knew that we were going to go VRBO, as we have stayed at several before and have had excellent results. We like quiet places that we can sit back and enjoy ourselves without the hustle and bustle of large hotels and resorts. So, I was super thankful, I can across Jay and Pam’s place! 18 units is pretty small considering it is Maui!

We got in late and was pleasantly surprised to see a welcome card from Jay and Pam and our Lanai open with the ocean right there just mere feet away. As tired as we were we wanted to check the place out and were happy to discover that it was well furnished and had all the amenities that we would need for our stay.

I do have to say the water in November was wonderful. (We could not do that in Oregon. Lol) We should have spent more time swimming than we did. It was great to be able to just walk a few feet and jump in the water. We did not see any whales but we did see lots of turtles and even a Pueo owl one evening. For us the weather was perfect and kept the nice big screen doors open the entire time. Loved hearing the ocean and smelling the salt air. The view is amazing and the sunset are gorgeous as well.

When we come back to Maui, we will be staying here! I would recommend Hoyochi Nikko #209 to anyone who is thinking about heading to Maui and is looking for a great place to stay. The on-site managers are super friendly too. They keep the grounds impeccably clean and beautiful. Thank you, Jay and Pam for allowing us to stay at your place. We had an excellent time.

A beautiful slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Hoyochi Nikko was absolutely amazing! Our condo was exceptional in every way; the moment we walked in we were wowed by the amazing view. The bed was comfortable when we finally laid down our heads at night. It was completely stocked with everything we could possible need. The grounds are beautifully kept and the onsite managers were friendly and personable. We enjoyed swimming with the turtles right in front of our complex. The Pu Pu party around the pool on Thursday evening was a great way to share experiences and meet so many wonderful people. We love the fact that the complex is was just what we were looking for and we found it! We will be back for certain!
