Guestbook comments from the owner

Whether you want to sit in the sun, read while listening to the sound of the waves or be on the move from morning until night this is the place to be. There is no better snorkeling anywhere than right here at the cove and it is right out side your door. Sea turtles are always there and they enjoy sunning themselves on the rocks of the cove. This unit has a fully equipped kitchen, a nice living room and two bedrooms. The lanai is the perfect place to drink your morning coffee. The condo has a pool and gas grills. We love spending time there. A great sandy beach is just a block away. This is a fantastic place.

Location is second to none! Old school Maui at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

If you want brand new sparkling Granite and marble then this is NOT the place for you! If you come to Maui for the abundant sea life, the world class snorkeling, the amazing scenery, the exciting boogieboarding and the seventies pace of life, this is the perfect place for you. We stayed with 4 adults and 2 kids and this place was magical! We were in the water less than five minutes and we had a whole family of turtles around us!! Amazing!! After having visited the Maui Ocean Centre, we now had an idea of what we were going to see in the water and we were not disappointed!! Dealing with the Varnells was a totally positive experience all the way through the booking process! They were very willing to let us in a little earlier as we were moving from another place and had food. A bottle of wine and snacks were awaiting us on our arrival, which was very much appreciated! I will be back!

The cove is everything they said it was. We saw so many turtles while snorkeling. The reefs are full of corals and fish. We had a great time staying here. The owners were very responsive and the unit was well kept and comfortable.

For us who loved to snorkel, this is one of the BEST LOCATIONS in Maui!! Sea Turtles everywhere!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a really great location. You can go right out your back door and swim with so many sea turtles! The very first day we were there we went snorkeling for about 1 hour and saw 9 Sea Turtles!! And tons of tropical fish as well. 2 years ago we stayed in Napili a few blocks north of this property and found this cove which the locals called “Turtle Cove”. We were happy to find this place which sits right on that cove. Air Conditioning is really nice to have which isn’t always available in Hawaii rentals. Carrie and Graham were super to deal with. We had a wonderful time.

Fun for family or group

  • 5 of 5

This end unit was perfect and very comfortable for a family or small group. The rooms were nicely furnished and the kitchen functioned admirably. The supplied snorkel equipment and boogie boards were a nice addition. We loved it and will return. The owners were accommodating and easy to work with

Quaint and comfortable Maui location

  • 4 of 5

Property was as described and the photos are accurate. It’s an older place so as long as that’s your jam, then you will be very happy. Lots of families and retirees use this as a yearly retreat. Wonderful memories will he created here. If you a cook that needs help, this may not be your spot as the kitchen is small. We would definitely return.
