Most flights leave Maui late in the evening. We recommend booking your last day of travel in our accommodations, so that you will have a place to stay until leaving for the Maui Airport. The airport code for Kahului, Maui is OGG.

Late check outs are not available.

About Tim and Vicky Hailey

I have been spending time on Maui for over 28 years. 20 years ago, my wife and I honeymooned on Maui. She fell in love with Maui, as well. Since then, we travel there at least 4 times a year for a month at a time to do maintenance and upgrades on our 2 condos. When you stay in one of our units, you will sense the owner’s pride that we take in caring for our properties. We are not just property owners. We are Certified Maui Destination Specialists by the Maui Visitors Bureau and long-time members of the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau. Please inquire to find out why you won't find more luxurious vacation condos on Maui at our rates.

Tim and Vicky Hailey purchased this condo in 2004

Why Tim and Vicky Hailey chose Maalaea

We are walking distance from the Maalaea Harbor where you can take a snorkel cruise, dinner cruise, fishing charter, sunset cruise, or whale watch (in season). We are as close to the water as you can get on Maui (only 30 feet from the buildings edge to the waters edge). The Milowai is positioned to view Haleakala volcano, Molokini Island, Kahoolawe Island, entire South Shore of Maui, and the West Maui mountains (all from our condo and lanai).

We are in the most centrally located part of the island, close to all Maui attractions.

What makes this condo unique

Panoramic Ocean Views. Incredible dining walking distance away. The Freight Train world famous surf break directly in front of our condo. The most centrally located spot on Maui. Maui's best kept secret.

The condo is great and the view is amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in December for our honeymoon. The condo is excellent and the view is amazing. We watched the sun come up in the morning and saw so many turtles every afternoon . We celebrated Christmas and New Year's during our stay and were able to see fireworks from the balcony. The location is perfect, easy to get to everything, but not in the high traffic areas. Tim was great to deal with and his communication was excellent!! I would definitely recommend this property, and my wife and I will most certainly be staying there again in the near future. Thanks for a great honeymoon!!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a six night stay at Tim and Vicky's lovely condo. As mentioned in so many of the other reviews, the view was incredible! We woke up to the sound of the ocean every morning, and we saw sea turtles hanging out by the water's edge every afternoon. The building is older, but the condo itself is nicely updated (particularly the bathroom and kitchen). The complex is very quiet; we hardly heard our neighbors. While all of that is great, the thing we appreciated most was how well set-up the condo is. There were super comfortable beach chairs, as well as a good sized cooler with ice packs, available for us to use. There was even tons of tupperware containers we could use for our daily beach picnics. We cooked several meals at the condo, and never found we were lacking necessary kitchen equipment. I can honestly say that I've never stayed in a place that made being away from home so convenient.

As a final note, the location of the condo is very convenient. I was initially concerned that we might feel like we were in the middle of nowhere, or that it would be a hassle whenever we wanted to go anywhere, but it was actually very much the opposite. Being more or less equidistant from Kihei and Lahaina meant that is was relatively quick and easy to get to either place without getting tied up in huge amounts of traffic.

We loved every minute of our stay. Mahalo, Tim and Vicky!

A very special stay!

  • 5 of 5

I happen to be staying at Tim and Vicky's wonderful place when I learned that Hurricane Lane was headed towards us. Their concern for my well being was touching. They even refunded part of my rental money when I decided to leave early. I am thankful that the hurricane turned and was downgraded so that the island was not hit hard in most places.

The condo itself was spectacular with great views of the bay. My grandchildren came to visit me while I was there and we saw many sea turtles in the surf up close. I hope to be able to return and enjoy their home again. Thank you guys!

What a amazing place. It was everything that we needed. Amazing view. Amazing privacy.

  • 5 of 5

What a amazing adventure. Owners were great at communucation. The condo had everything that we could have possibly needed. The view was so great that we spent countless hours just staring off into the ocean. Turtles were visible from the balcony at all times. It was great to come back to the condo after a long day of exploring and have piece and quiet. Loved every minute of our stay. If we ever make it back to maui, we will stay there again.
