Why Sandy Szymanski chose Central Maui

Maalaea is Centrally located. You will want to see all of the island and this location is absolutely, hands down, THE BEST spot to make your home while exploring Maui.

What makes this condo unique

Not only are you centrally located for driving and sight seeing the entire island, you are within a 10 min (or less) WALK to sandy beachs, Haycraft Park, the Maui Ocean Center, Maui Sports Park, Maalaea Harbor (to catch all the boats for all kine excursions), multiple restaurants, shops for enjoyment, a fueling station, and even a convenience store. And you are NOT in the busy hububb of south Maui.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Aloha Sandy,



Thank you very much for renting your apartment to us for our stay in Maui. We enjoyed the location especially being able to see the whales and turtles from the lanai.



The little touches in the kitchen was also a pleasant surprise-- the spices, condiments etc. It may meal preparation a little easier and more enjoyable. The bed was comfortable and the unit was quiet and peaceful.



Overall, our stay in your unit was one of the most pleasant we have had on Maui.



Thank you again,



V. & D.

Absolutely Maui!

  • 5 of 5

From the first step inside this condo I was filled with happiness. The beautiful view of the ocean and the comfortable cool breeze. We relaxed immediately!

Clean and fully stocked kitchen, spacious bedroom and bath. Couldn't have asked for more!

Our fourth VRBO rental on Maui and by far our favorite!

  • 5 of 5

Although this rental appears "basic" in decor, it is everything needed for a relaxing, fun and affordable vacation on Maui. We have stayed at older and newer condos on Maui but this felt most like home and met our all of our needs for privacy, quiet, AC, washer/dryer, walking access to the beach, beach gear, assigned parking, incredible views, away from most of the tourist strips, and affordability.

Sandy is easy to work with and contact. Whole building water maintenance was scheduled during our stay and this was communicated before we arrived so we knew what to expect.

The condo is relatively quiet compared to other complexes we have stayed and the walled lanai gives you the privacy you need to enjoy the sights and sounds without strangers peering into your living area.. The lanai is southern facing so is enjoyable most of the day, getting a small amount of direct sun in the mid-morning hours. We enjoyed watching the canoe races and the sail boats.

Being from Seattle, which rarely goes above 80 degrees, we worried about the heat on Maui in July. This part of the island gets the valley wind and the temperatures remained comfortable. with constant air flow. Like most condo's, the AC unit is located in the safest window that is not accessible to the outside- which in this case is the living room off the lanai. The bedroom is the hottest room in the place but comes with a ceiling fan and oscillating fan. The windows can be open to catch the breeze but agree with others who have reviewed that you would not want to leave them open at night as it also catches the sound of the elevator and walkway. The living room has a futon that can be made into a double bed as well if you must sleep in AC. We found that we acclimated to the temperature by our third day and actually found the AC to be too cold at times and turned it off.

We loved Haycraft park which is at the end of the road about .3 miles east of the complexes. It is a long sandy beach where locals fish and turtles play among the rocks during high tides. We found one good snorkel spot at the beginning of the park. It has a bathroom and an outdoor shower as well so you can rinse off before heading home.

If we had one suggestion for making this an even better place to stay, it would be to have a screen on the front door to help better circulate air at that end of the condo. This one thing however would not stop us from coming again or highly recommending the place.

Five star view two star condo inside

  • 3 of 5

The view could not have been any better. Beautiful and private from balcony. I was very disappointed in the condo itself. Definitely ready for some TLC and did not feel clean.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear of your disappointment with our home and that it did not feel clean. I clean the home myself and I take great care to ensure our guests will be happy upon arrival. However based on your review I must have missed something and I am very sorry! You can be sure that this incident is the exception and not the rule. Don't take it from me, I welcome you to read our other guest reviews. Thank you for letting me know so I can improve the experience of our future guests. With Aloha, Sandy

This was our fourth year staying for the winter. We arrive the first week of Jan and leave to be home by Palm Sunday each year. We will continue this for the foreseeable future. Just a great place. Quite yet just a short drive to everything. Close walk to anything you need, beach, store, restaurants, sightseeing cruises at the harbor and much more. Everything you might need to cook a great meal is right there. When it is ready you can eat on the Lanai, 40' from the water and watch the whales, turtles and flying fish. A view you will pay dearly for at many restaurants. As many others have said, Sandy is wonderful to work with and will make sure everything you need is in the condo. If you want a quite peaceful place to spend a few days or a month to enjoy the Island, this is the place.

Quiet, clean, well appointed oceanfront condo

  • 5 of 5

This quiet, clean, well appointed condo is located within walking distance of many amenities (restaurants, bars, small grocery store, marina and aquarium) but is away from the major tourist areas of Kihei and Lahaina in the town of Maalaea. Excellent for those that do not want to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the larger centres. The views from the lanai are stellar - we saw whales breaching over our morning coffee! The beach is a very short (2 minute) walk from your door and the complex has a nice pool and barbeque area. Sandy is a very helpful hostess and is available should you have any questions. We were very impressed by how clean the condo was and happy for the starter package of coffee and basics that was provided. We would definitely stay here again - thanks Sandy!

Overall a 4.2 experience which could easily be raised to 5 with two mechanical repairs.

  • 4 of 5

The management deserves 5 stars for responsiveness, graciousness and professionalism.

The location and views are spectacular, allowing a 24 hr. tropical view/venue to raise one's spirits and dispell the fog of work and the pressures of our industrial society.

The design of the unit gets 4 because of the need to admit air through the bedroom involving louvered glass panes (whose adjustment levers were not operable) through which the wind shrieked and whistled all night, while noises of late arriving and departing visitors in the hallway combined with very early morning activity near the adjacent rubbish bins were disruptively audible throughout the night.

All-in-all a 4.2 experience.
