About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Imagine vacationing in paradise where unbelievable sunsets can be seen nightly and warm winds gently sway the palm trees. In season whales and their young can be viewed from the beach in front of the complex playing in the bay. Turtles are abundant in these waters.

In the tranquil waters of the bay outrigger canoes, paddle boarders, kayakers enjoy the beautiful calm conditions. In the afternoons when the warm trade winds blow the sea turns into a playground of colorful sails and kites of windsurfers and kite-surfers.

Great place to explore all of Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place to explore Maui. If you are looking to hang by the pool all day, this is not the place for you, as the complex is under going construction through 2019(?). Construction is done on this side of the building, according to office staff. It starts/ends at a reasonable time and was never an issue for us. Spend 5-6 hours at the beach and in the sun, turn the AC on and I can sleep through anything.

Location is great. Close to great dining, great beaches and centrally located so you can experience all that Maui has to offer. Road to Hana, Haleakala, etc. Unit is comfortable and a perfect beach getaway. Will definitely recommend to others.

Sun shades were definitely dated and in need of repair/replacement. The other equipment was serviceable and greatly appreciated. There were a few bugs, but it’s a tropical island. When I read cockroaches from a previous reviewer, I was expecting matchbox car sized bugs, but there was none of that! The bugs were small, slow moving and easy to dispose of. Found none outside of the kitchen, clean up after yourself and you’ll be fine. It would be nice if there was an additional set of sheets for extended visits, but there was plenty of towels. It would be nice to have an ottoman or something to prop your feet in the living room. Not sure if cleaning staff cleans out kitchen stuff, but there is basic sugar, salt/pepper, coffee filters. I’ve rented before and found other places well stocked with items leftover (oils, seasoning, etc.).

Pictures are accurate and unit is exactly as pictured. Parking lot is right off the lanai, but we found this convenient and not an issue. We still enjoyed morning coffee and winding down our day with limited distractions. Owners were very quick with communication and were easy to rent from. I highly recommend for people wanting to explore Maui.

Would not recommend

  • 1 of 5

After killing four cockroaches in three days we left seven days early to find a Marriott.

Before we arrived I asked about the view from the lanai which a friend told me faced the parking lot. When I asked if there were any other options (meaning another possible unit) the owner said "We can't move the lanai and we can't move the parking lot! If you would have asked the view from the lanai I would have told you!"

Owner's Response: It is a pity Kathryn did not tell the truth about the correspondence we had before they arrived. We were emailed by them saying their friends stayed in our condo in October and showed them photos of the view from the condo. They asked for an exact description of their booking. We answered that we were not quite sure how to answer the question, as they had photos from their friends and photos from our web site. But we told them that the lanai looks across a small garden to the parking lot. Their reply was “Is this the only option?” They had options, as everyone does, of canceling. As far as cockroaches are concerned, in a tropical country, leaving food, especially sugary, sticky marks, will attract cockroaches. In the nine years cockroaches have never been a problem. The condo is regularly professionally treated for cockroaches. On this website alone, we have 4.7 out of 5 stars from 68 reviews. The problem with social media and ratings, things like having a bad flight, a bad car rental experience, not seeing eye to eye with your partner, leads to bad reviews. The review below was received from another site we advertise on two weeks before Kathryn's arrival !!! Marianna Feb 18 - Feb 23 · !!! Deluxe Ocean Front Condo !!! Public feedback I would rate it 6 or 7 stars if I could. The place is simply amazing! Howard and Gloria are great hosts! It was extremely easy to communicate, they were ready to help and answered in minutes. The place located on quite the beach with a coral reef not far away, which is great for snorkeling. Stores, restaurants, ice-cream shop are in walking distance. Everything in the condo just perfect. We found boards, masks, snorkeling gear and beach chairs, a cooler, an insulated lunch bag, freezer had reusable ice-packs for the cooler, and so on. It was extremely clean and smelled really good. A kitchen contains new pots and very nice plates. This really made our vacation a whole lot more convenient. Thank you!

Good location, but had some issues

  • 3 of 5

The condo would have been great except for a few issues. First the good. The location was excellent. I could not ask for a better area to stay in while in Maui. Now the bad:

1. There were these small flies in the condo. They looked like sewer flies.

2. I tried calling the owner several times to inform him. I wasn’t able to get in touch with him. It wasn’t until I finially went to the office to complain they told me the owners were out of the country. I should have been informed when I checked in.

3. When I at last got in touch with someone they kept saying “this is Hawaii, they are bugs here”. I’ve been to Hawaii at least seven times and never had to deal with this kind of thing.

4. The owner never called to apologize for the problems, I think he could have at least done that.

5. I was never informed that there would be construction going on while we were there. They stopped at a reasonable time but during the day there was constant noise.

Great condo. Thank you for making our first trip to Maui memorable and fun.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in a great location to get easily to all parts of the island. Stores and restaurants nearby are super. Beaches are walkable and beautiful. All beach items are in the condo ready to be used. Owners take great pride in their condo, rightfully so. Only downside is that the building is going through major needed renovations, which take from the serenity of being in Maui. These should be done shortly.
