About the property

Beachfront luxury, professionally decorated, close to both Lahaina and Kihei

This elegant corner unit penthouse will take your breath away! Fully remodeled and beautifully updated, it boasts three bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom. Larger groups may also wish to reserve the unit below, which is connected to the penthouse by a private elevator. The lower unit (VRBO #4146143) provides two additional bedrooms and two more full baths, as well as a sitting area with a twin daybed and privacy doors.

Milowai Dolphin Penthouse is situated in close proximity to both south Maui (Kihei, Wailea, and Makena) and west Maui (Lahaina, Kaanapali, and Kapalua), the two areas most preferred by visitors to the island. Guests will discover that a short drive in either direction provides endless options for world-class dining, shopping, golf, spas, water sports, and other activities. Don’t feel like driving? Take a brief stroll to Maalaea Harbor, and you’ll find restaurants, bars, a market and other shops, the Maui Ocean Center aquarium, the Maui Golf & Sports Park family amusement center, and opportunities for sailing, whale watching, fishing, sunset dinner cruises, and other excursions.

From the moment you walk into Milowai Dolphin Penthouse, you’ll have a sense of tropical tranquility. The living spaces offer incredible ocean and mountain views, which are even more panoramic from the lanai that spans the width of the home. Open the sliding doors to the lanai and experience the ultimate in indoor/outdoor living, as refreshing breezes blow through the penthouse. Watch whales while lounging on the lanai, linger over dinner as you take in a gorgeous sunset, or sink into the sofa for a movie on the giant flat screen television.

The penthouse has a well-equipped kitchen with everything needed for gourmet meals at home. The unit is also equipped with a washer and dryer, making it easy to pack light. Guests will even find beach umbrellas, chairs, and towels.

The home’s master bedroom features a sumptuous king-size bed, walk-in closet, and flat screen television. The spa-like en suite master bath has a large walk-in shower and jetted tub with an amazing ocean view. The spacious second bedroom offers peaceful privacy, another king-size bed, another flat screen television, and its own lovely en suite full bathroom. The third bedroom is furnished with a queen-size Murphy bed, a beautiful office space, and its own flat screen television. The third full bathroom can be accessed either from this bedroom or from the living space.

Vacations at Milowai Dolphin Penthouse begin with a greeting by your property manager, and guest assistance is available throughout your stay. Concierge services also enable guests to easily arrange for activities, dinner reservations, a personal chef, massages, and anything else you might need. Relaxation and adventure await in this heavenly Hawaiian hideaway!

About Tom McPherson

We have been coming to Maui for the last 30+ years and have always loved it so much. On Our 25th wedding anniversary we bought our first condo in Kihei. All of our family and friends enjoyed it so much that we decided to purchase more properties to use as vacation rentals.

We hand selected these unique properties with families in mind. Our mission is to offer you the highest standards in your accommodations and top customer service. We are here to make your Maui dreams come true and create wonderful memories.

Tom McPherson purchased this condo in 2010

Why Tom McPherson chose Central Maui

This is one of the most desirable rental properties available on Maui. It is a three-bedroom, three full bath, 1,700-square foot penthouse condo with its own private elevator and large lanai. AND it's in an amazing location and has been decorated to five -star standards - what's not to love?

What makes this condo unique

Milowai Dolphin Penthouse is centrally located on the island, making it easy to explore not only south and west Maui, but central Maui (including the Iao Valley area), upcountry (including Makawao, Ha'iku, and Kula), and even east Maui (including Pa'ia and Hana). However, the penthouse has such stunning views and is within walking distance to so much that you may forget all about exploring other parts of the island! We have also made certain to provide all the amenities you might need to make your stay feel like a luxurious home-away-from-home experience.

Amazing penthouse. Great owners! We had a blast.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in June of 2017. We were between island hops from Hawaii and to Kauai. We stayed for 3 nights and absolutely loved the penthouse and its location. Located near the marina we could watch everything from surfers and snorkelers to boats coming in and out of the marina. There was a great coffe shop/general store and incredible BBQ. We drove the Hana Hwy around the island one day and surfed, snorkeled and cliff dived the next. I had my wife and 4 kids with me and everyone loved the time we spent in Maui!

Authentic Maui Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Feel like a local with this excellently located top floor penthouse. The photograph's provided in the posting- believe it or not are true to life.

We stayed here with my friend and his family for a week in October and I must say that this one is an absolute gem! Here's a list of some of the highlights

• management - professional and always available

• babysitters available


• location - location - location

• walking distance to beach which is great for families (safe)

• locally owned convenience store (free DVD rentals)

• personal elevator (great for up and down to the beach)

• turtles swimming up to the rocks near marina

If you're looking for a great group or family family vacation the 3 bedroom property will not disappoint.

Kind regards,

Absolutely beautiful condo and views!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and Courtney was here to greet us - she made sure we were all settled and left a lovely welcome basket! Thanks Courtney! The condo is absolutely beautiful- equipped with everything you need. The view from the lanai is amazing! Every day we could see whales and we also enjoyed watching the boats go in and out of the harbor. The location is perfect for exploring - easy access to all parts of the island.

And I'm glad you found the property to be comfortable and well-equipped - the owner has definitely taken every step to make sure it feels like a home away from home. Please come back to see us soon!

Amazing 5 Star condo in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful 3 bedroom 3 bath condo with great amenities.

Private elevator and two parking spaces make it a breeze to get around and/or have guests over.

Right next to the Harbor so you can walk over to catch the half day snorkeling trip to Molokai crater.

Would come back to Maui just to stay here!

Great location to take the back road to Hana, sunset viewing at the observatory, outrigger paddling at the Maui fish pond, and everywhere else on the island

The condo is beautiful, the view is spectacular ... My husband and I were delighted with everything!! The pictures are exactly what you're getting, amazing scenery, immaculate, lovely home! We had two weeks of paradise!!!! Thank You!

This luxury penthouse is ideally located, giving you especially convenient access to both south Maui (Kihei, Wailea, Makena) and West Maui (Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kapalua). Both areas offer world-class restaurants and shopping, as well as golf, spas, hiking opportunities, and all the water sports you can imagine!

Within walking distance from the penthouse is the Maui Ocean Center, one of the Zagat Survey's U.S. Family Travel Guide's Top-Rated Attractions in Hawaii. The Ocean Center provides an up-close view of Hawaiian marine life without the need to get wet!

Also just a stroll away is the Maui Golf & Sports Park, where guests can enjoy a tropical miniature golf course, bumper boats, rock climbing, and an extreme trampoline. Great fun for everyone!

Take a short drive and you'll find activities such as horseback riding, ziplining, historical sites, helicopter tours, and luaus. Many guests also enjoy biking down Haleakala Volcano or taking a day to explore the Road to Hana.
