Property description

One of the best condos in Maui (with the reviews to prove it)! (Hawaii Tax ID: W89686450-01)

Stay for only $129 night during September! On sale now!

The beautiful pacific ocean is 25 ft away from your lanai! Listen to the waves and see the stunning views of Lanai and Molokai. During whale season, you can see whales all day long. The condo itself is designed as something I would expect from an upscale Maui resort. So it's very well appointed and very comfortable. Including a new high end Sterns & Foster Queen mattress! A vacation condo should feel like home and somewhere you look forward to returning to.

I've put a lot of work into the place and care a lot about the condo and your experience in it. You can see that reflected in the reviews! :-)

Save 8% of the rental cost! - If you want, you can book directly through me. You don't have to use the HomeAway/VRBO Book Now system which will charge you an 8-10% service fee. Send me an email first and I can send you a PayPal invoice that can be paid with a credit card. Just want to make sure you know you have other payment options and don't need to pay the fee. I've been on VRBO a long time and you can pay with confidence. I used PayPal before VRBO had a payment system and am happy to use it again. Of course, you're welcome to pay through VRBO/HomeAway.

Check out the beautiful, custom shower! Finally got around to remodeling the shower and it came out amazing. All slate, river rock, and quartzite. There's also an Alsons shower head that provides a 'rain' effect or more traditional water flow. I'm stoked about it and you will be too. :-)

Note: There's been some erosion on the beach directly south of the condo. So the nearest beach requires a couple block walk. There are also plenty of beaches within a 5 minute drive of the condo. The sea wall and lawn directly in front of the condo are unaffected.

I keep my calendar updated. If it says condo is available, it is. I know it's frustrating when you see an available condo and it's just due to folks not updating their calendars.

Key Amenities: Air Conditioner, new high-end mattress, 600 thread count linens, free reserved parking, wired/wireless super fast internet (100mb down/10mb up), flat screen TV, remodeled kitchen, remodeled shower, and lots of small amenities like a hair dryer in the bathroom and juicer in the kitchen.

Check out the Google Map below with some great recommendations for eating and activities. See the video for the view off of the lanai.

My name is Jim Tierney and I recently purchased this condo to live in 3 months of the year. I recently finished remodeling it and it came out beautifully. Since I'll be living in it, the remodel was necessary to make it someplace I'd want to stay. So this is not a normal rental unit where everything was done on the cheap! I love the Westin and their Heavenly Bed, so that was my target in creating the space (minus all the noise and timeshare sales pitches :-).

I figure there's two things people want from a Maui vacation... 1) to see and hear the ocean from their lanai and 2) to get some sleep. :-) As for the ocean, the condo is 25 feet away from the ocean so you can sit on the lanai and watch the waves crash into the sea wall or the sun set over the wide pacific and disappear behind Molokai. When it comes to sleeping I'm pretty particular about the mattress I sleep on, so it was important to find a good mattress that rivaled what I expect from the Westin. It's wrapped up in designer bedding and 600 thread count sheets. In February 2016 I got a new high end Sterns & Foster Queen Mattress. It's amazingly comfortable and I think you'll find it's wonderful to listen to the waves as you drift off to sleep.

It's a wonderful, luxurious space that will give you everything you want from a Maui vacation. I look forward to having you experience it for yourself.

If you're into cooking, the kitchen has been completely remodeled with granite countertops and custom wood cabinets. You have all the cookware necessary for a complete meal and then some. The dishes, glassware, and tableware are all beautiful and will make having dinner on the lanai at sunset feel like a 5 star restaurant. You are also a couple minutes away from a market that specializes in local and organic foods, if you're looking for fresh ingredients.

There's also a brand new air conditioner, which is not common in vacation rentals.

Of course, there's the usual stuff, 32' flatscreen TV with DVD and cable, high speed internet with WiFi, speakers to plug an iPod into, hair dryer, small library of DVDs, and even a desk to write postcards on or check email (not that you'd be doing that on your vacation). There's also stuff like beach chairs, a boogie board, snorkel equipment, and beach towels. The couch becomes a queen sized, simmons sofa bed to accomodate kids or another adult. This IS a sofa bed. It's a nice one, but like all sofa beds it's not the paragon of comfort, especially for adults.

There are two pools. However, this is a residential condo complex (meaning folks live here year round) so the pools aren't resort quality. There's no waterslides, bars, spa, lifeguards, or attendants handing you towels. They are nice, clean pools, but more modest than you'd find in a resort. Of course, the condo has pool/beach towels for your use and it's easy enough to mix up your own drinks in the blender. :-) There's also a couple day spas a short distance away.

The unit is adjacent to a sandy beach which is great for swimming and snorkeling or just laying out. There's a grassy area directly in front with a gas BBQ, tables, and chaise lounges. You're one block from restaurants and shopping. It's an excellent central location to go north to Kapalua or south to Kaanapali, Lahaina town and the Lahaina Harbor.


The condo is non-smoking and is on the second floor, up one flight of stairs.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Cleaning $100
  • Tax Rate 13.4%

Notes:

Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed.

Lower rates may be available for stays of 7 days or longer, last minute stays, or other situations. The VRBO rate is provided as a convenience, but I recommend contacting me to get the best available rate.

The $300 deposit is refundable if the reservation is canceled prior to 45 days of your stay. Within 45 days it is not refundable. Once the full amount has been paid (due 30 days prior to your stay), it is also non-refundable. If you do cancel within 30 days, we will make every effort to re-book the condo as we would prefer not to charge guests that don't end up staying. If so, you'll be issued a refund for the amount that we are able to re-book. Unfortunately, last minute bookings are somewhat rare. Most folks plan Maui vacations well in advance so most likely we will not be able to give you a refund.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Hi, I'm Jim Tierney. I live most of the year in San Francisco and escape to Maui whenever I get tired of the foggy weather. I run a small software company and have the good fortune of being able to work anywhere there's an internet connection. Luckily that's the case with Maui, so whenever I get an urge for whale watching, diving, or laying in the sun it's no problem coming over. I love diving and the diving in Maui is spectacular, there are some really beautiful spots. I also have a passion for photography, particularly whales and outdoor scenes, so you'll see some of my work on the walls of the unit. I hope you'll check out my place. I put a lot of work into it making sure it was a livable space for when I'm there. So I think the standards I have for the condo is much higher than most rental units.

Why the Owner Chose Lahaina, HI, USA:
I bought this because I'll be there about 3 months of the year and I wanted something on the ocean. A friend of mine lives in the same building so I was very familiar with the property and all it offered (ok, so mostly it offered the ocean about 20 feet way :-). It's amazing to watch the sun set during the summer, see the whales during the winter, and listen to the waves all year long.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
A wonderful view (did I mention you're 25 feet from the ocean :-), a high-end, very comfortable bed, a full kitchen, and air conditioning.
