About Ralph

My family and I have been traveling back and forth to Hawaii for many years. We all work hard all year and like to be able to relax far away from our normal routine. By the way, we always go with the 5 of us, and the 5th sleeps on an air matress!

Ralph purchased this condo in 2007

Why Ralph chose West Maui

We looked and looked and waited for just the perfect unit. When I first saw the unit, it was perfect. The view was exactly what I wanted. Directly in front of the ocean. It was on the ground level which makes it so convenient. The building is kept so clean with pride. So myself and my husband knew we had to have it.

What makes this condo unique

We all enjoy cooking our meals, so the first thing we do after landing and securing a rental car, is going on a COSTCO run and buying food and drink we will use during our weeks stay! Being steps from the bbq, It is so easy to prepare your food and then walk right back to your 'lanai'. It must be difficult if you rent on the 2nd or 3rd floors to carry the food down and then up quickly, before it gets cold. It's just like you would BBQ at your home. The pool is also very conveniently located, so you can take a dip, run to your condo fro a drink, and back on the lounge in 2 minutes! Snorkeling is the 'big' thing here. We provide 5-7 pairs goggles, snorkels, and fins, so usually, our 'vacationers' don't have to bring them. Honlu'a Bay, Black Rock and Napiili Bay are 3 of the 6 best places for snorkeling in Maui, and those 3 are each less than 10 minutes away! There is plenty for the whole family to do; since the kids are getting older they can enjoy the pool and beach while we golf and visit the local landmarks and the beautiful natural surroundings that the Islands have to offer. We usually go into Laina a few nights to eat, Bubba Gumps and B.J.'s Pizza are great, with many other restaurants and bars available. Our condo is 5 minutes walking distance to Roy's, the Brew Pub, and 'OkaZuya' our favorite 'take-out' place!!! With the 'wall' separating the condo and pool from our unit, you're close to evreything but far enough away if you need to be. If you want to 'lay out' and read, un-disturbed then suddenly you want a drink, you are right there, you don't have to 'trapse' upstairs! Location, Location, Location!

Perfect location, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the moment my husband and I arrived, we knew we'd chosen the right place for our stay. We recently spent 4 wonderful weeks at this condo, with our adult children and their spouses joining us for 2 different weeks. We were all quite comfortable, but as usual, we spent most of our time out and about. The Lanai was perfect, and is really only steps from the BBQ, pool and ocean. The view is amazing. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai as well as most of our evenings while listening to the waves crashing, whale and turtle watching and also the occasional visits from spinner dolphins. You'll find the closet is well stocked with snorkel gear, boogie boards, beach chairs and coolers. The location was just what we were looking for. Location is so great as it is close to grocery stores, restaurants, farmers markets, shopping and so much more. The grounds were kept very clean, and Tim the manager always friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again and looking forward to another extended stay. Thank you Mary for your help with our booking and every need. Aloha!

Everything that was promised was delivered.

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful stay. Close to everything but private and beautiful. Every sunset amazing. You could see turtles everyday from our lani. Made friends as well with other residents. We will be back.

Money well spent!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect and the atmosphere was wonderful. The westward view led to watching the sunset nearly every evening we were in Maui. We felt that this was the perfect place to stay as we were surrounded by fun activities, but our condo was very quiet. The price of staying here allowed us to conclude that this was one of our best vacation values and we hope to be back soon.

I loved this place.

  • 5 of 5

The location could not have been better. I loved being on the ground floor, and being able to walk out to the seawall and the view. The condo was spotlessly clean when I arrived. The green granite counter tops are a really nice touch. The bed was comfy. Parking wasn't a hassle like elsewhere, and there was a gas station and grocery store just a couple blocks away. The place just worked. I would definitely go here again.

Great location.

  • 3 of 5

The picture of the ocean you see is exactly how it is. We enjoyed having our coffee looking out from our rental every morning we were there. This rental, in my opinion, is great for young families. Pool is very close. There are beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards and some snorkel equipment. I used one of the snorkels but it leaked so I would not count on them working but I didn't try the other two. There is a snorkel rental place very close by. The kitchen is remodeled as is the bathroom. We had a bit of a problem with the doors. The slider was rusty and difficult to use and lock. The front door security screen did not lock so we couldn't leave the door open for air. We are not tech savvy so when the TV's gave us trouble we could not work them, there wasn't any instructions. We decided to leave because we are too old, and I'm a bit spoiled, I don't want hassels on vacation. I spoke to Ralph and he was very concerned. He refunded us and immediately had the things I talked to him about taken care of. It's a great place for the price, the view is amazing. Thanks Ralph. Let me know when you get a new couch, something not too dark. "I did mention I was spoiled". Aloha

Great Views!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent Dec. 15 - 31, 2017 at Ralph's condo. We had stayed here 4 year's prior. We LOVE it!!!!!! The views are awesome, the snorkeling (when the weather is good on the Islands) are fantastic!!!! Ralph sometimes can be slow in replying, but don't let this discourage you from staying here.

Being able to stay in a ground floor corner unit is the BEST!!!!!!! If you walk to the sea wall, usually no matter the time of day, you will be able to see Green Sea Turtles having a snack of algae on the rocks. Make sure you take your camera out there, but be quick, when they come up for air, they only stay on the surface for a couple seconds. If you are lucky like we were, you may have one sunning on the beach.

Ralph keeps gear in the closet, but you may want to bring your own. That way, you know that it will fit properly. He also has a few beach chairs for use. The best part is that the bed is extremely comfortable.

I'm sure you will have a wonderful stay as we have. The only day you will regret staying here, is the day you have to leave.

We plan on coming here every 2 years. Mahalo, Ralph!!!!!!
