Amazing Beachfront Property

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly as described and is a beautiful, centrally located, beachfront property. We spent 10 wonderful days here with our friends, celebrating multiple life events. We woke up every morning having breakfast on the lanai and watching the turtles play. The owners provide plenty of supplies with regards to dishes and cookware. In addition, they have many beach supplies that were put to good use. We rented a Jeep for the duration of our stay and, although the parking lot is somewhat small, parking was not a problem.

There are a couple general stores nearby for last minute items; however we stopped at Costco and Walmart as prices are more comparable to the Chicago area. There is plenty of shopping by the Maui Ocean Center and if you have a chance I would check out Beach Bums, their food is amazing! Road to Hana and Mama's Fish House (well worth the money) are additional must see's while in Maui.

We enjoyed our stay so much that the four of us have already started to talk about our next trip back. We look forward to returning to Maui in the future and hope that this condo will be available. It will be our first "go to" when we select dates for our next trip back.

Gorgeous condo with amazing beachfront views!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is beautiful and exactly as pictured in photos. The owners and management were very gracious and helpful; very easy process. This condo is truly beachfront with breath taking view of bay. We watched whales play every day from our lanai. The furnishings were perfect and plenty of dishes and supplies. I would highly recommend this condo to everyone! This was one of the best condos at this resort. I loved our stay and would go back in a heartbeat! Maui is a beautiful island and the condo was close to all areas-Lahaina, Kihei and other areas.

Why would we ever leave

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 day holiday at this unit.

Opened the sliding door to the lanai overnight to listen to the waves breaking on the beach. Turtle watching on the reef right outside the unit & complex. Whales surfacing and breaching just off the beach. Wildlife refuge next door with lots of bird watching - the Black Crowned Night Herons were spectacular! Walking distance to a great aquarium and decent restaurants.

Why would we ever want to leave?

Cons: Air conditioning unit upstairs continues to be very noisy.

Owner's Response: Yes, sometimes those portable A/C units are typically more nosier that the wall mounted ones. But.....Great news! The owners have already scheduled a split central air condoning system to be installed in March. YAY!

We loved the property. It’s right on the beach, so we could go for a long walk each morning. The loft views the ocean in the morning. It has 2 bedrooms, but bear in mind if with friends, the upstairs is a loft and you could potentially hear people below and lacks privacy. We were glad to be alone.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review! Just a heads up for future travelers, this condo will be getting a nice split system installed in the next month so each bedroom will also be cooled nicely for an even more comfortable night sleep. In addition the owners will be doing a bit of re-construction to the loft to provide privacy from below when needed but also the option to enjoy that beautiful beach view as desired (so master loft sleepers will have options for privacy, a quiet nights sleep and a beautiful view) :-)

A Fabulous First Time (but not last!) Stay In Maui

  • 5 of 5

We were completely unfamiliar with the island of Maui and so we weren't sure where to stay. This property was ideal! We were directly on the beach where we took long walks every day or swam in the ocean or in the property's well kept pool. This property is fairly central - no more than a 20 minute drive to everything including Kaanalauli, Lahaina, Wailea, and the start of the "road to Hana". And less than 15 minutes, we were at restaurants, a shopping mall and grocery stores, and the airport. So as for location, it was great. We found there were very few properties with immediate beach access for the price we paid. Each day we checked on the resident sea turtles and one day even saw a whale in the distance which is rare for mid November.

When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised with how clean the unit was and it's layout. As you walk in, there is a beautiful kitchen to the right with stainless appliances and granite counter, all the appliances, glasses, dishes, and cloths you would need. As you enter fully, there is a lovely sitting area with couches and chairs, a small desk, and what appeared to be a 65 inch television. Following that was the balcony (lanai) with patio furniture where we say most nights for dinner and overlooking the ocean. Also on the lower level was a washer/dryer, a lovely bathroom and bedroom with king bed. The staircase led to another full bathroom and a loft bedroom (overlooking the ocean). This layout was ideal for 2 couples sharing. The unit was also equipped with towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, goggles, etc.

The staff were great - we received a call from Andreas the day before arrival and he confirmed that everything was ready for us and that he would leave lights on since we were arriving late, and advised on how to reach him should we need anything at all. There was no need, as everything was up to (if not exceeded) our expectations. On the last day, we needed assistance from Amy and she was able to respond promptly and positively to our needs. Mahalo.

I would recommend this property to anything who is looking to relax in Maui but who also wants the ability to tour when they want. Bring your Costco membership card and purchase some english muffins/bread/butter and ground coffee (or Nespresso!) for mornings, and pick up some pre-made sandwiches for lunches. We did go out for dinner a few times but used the unit's BBQ for steak and potatoes a few nights.

We will definitely stay at this property again.

What makes this condo unique

5 miles of uncrowded beach, whale watching in Maalaea Bay which is the Humpback Whale calving and breeding grounds during the winter months (November through April) right in front of the property! Ocean swimming, boogie boarding and surfing (during south swells), and windsurfing! The Pacific Whale foundation is a 10 minute walk from the property so you can walk to your whale watch tour, or take educational classes without a car!
