Property description

This luxury penthouse will take your breath away! Professionally decorated and remodeled 3 bedroom 3 bath 4th floor corner unit penthouse with private elevator that opens directly into unit.

***NOW OFFERING AN OPTIONAL CONNECTING SUITE** Yes, this highly sought after Penthouse, now offers a spacious 1700 sqft, 2bed w/additional 3rd room w/twin bed, 2 bath corner unit directly below the Penthouse. These 2 condos share a private elevator that has the ability to travel between each condo when rented together, or operated independently when rented separately. Each condo sleeps max 6 or 12 if combined. To find out more information about the optional suite, please visit http://www.Homeaway.com/4146143, or call me direct. Please note that the pictures posted may not reflect the current updates and changes made to the property with the goal of transforming it to resemble the connected Penthouse. ***

Now that I've explained the option of adding the newly purchased Suite with direct unit to unit elevator capability, let me finish by attempting to describe the Penthouse that the majority of guest believe can only be truly appreciated in person. As many guest posted reviews state, the Penthouse is beautiful and offered the most amazing panoramic ocean views from kitchen, living area, master bedroom, and master bath. The outdoor lanai expands the entire width of the condo (10'x30') This lanai opens to the living area and Master Suite giving you that indoor/outdoor living experience which is so desired, and the best way to experience island style living.
The condo is situated in such a way that you get the benefit of the most amazing fresh breeze flowing right through the condo by simply opening the front door and back doors. Most prefer this over the AC, but that option is also available. Each room can be controlled independently, so if someone staying in one room likes it at 75 degrees F, and someone in another room prefers 85 degrees F, this can be accomplished. The only thing you can't do is run the AC with the doors and windows open. This is for obvious reasons, but please inquire if you need further explanation.
I can offer you insight on the best places to dine, and the places you don't want to miss. If you're a romantic and need my assistance to make something happen, or have something ready in advance, it's my pleasure to assist. I'm available to every guest by phone from 8am to 10pm Hawaii time. If you're staying in the property, then I'm available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

If you're visiting during peak season (December-April) you will see Humpback whales breaching the oceans surface as they mate and breed here in Maalaea Bay yearly. But there is so much to do in Maui year round. Yes, there is never a bad time to visit Maui. Enjoy walking or running along miles of white sandy beach, or swimming with the turtles in the ocean. Directly in front of unit is the world famous 'Freight Trains' surf spot aka 'Maalaea Pipelines'. Walk to the Maui Ocean Center (a favorite Hawaii attraction), or Maui Golf & Sports Park- Enjoy this tropical miniature golf putting course, bumper boats (with water guns), rock climbing, and the x-treme trampoline. Great fun for everyone! If you like to snorkel, scuba dive, snuba, or sportfishing, then take one of several excursions that leave the harbor daily. The sunset dinner cruise is always a great romantic way to start the evening. There is so much to do within walking distance and don't overlook the location and convenience of staying in Maalaea. If you look on a map of Maui, you will see that Maalaea is the optimal central home based location for those who want to see all that Maui has to offer. No matter which direction you go, you are just a short drive to all of the major areas of interest.
If you're looking for that romantic place for that special someone? Look no further, The penthouse is exactly that and very private. All lighting is dimmable so, so set the mood to your liking. Relax and unwind in a jetted bath while overlooking the ocean, or lounge on the lanai while taking in Maui's beautiful sunsets. Order in a private massage, private chef, or ???. If you're planning a special occasion, such as a honeymoon, and want memories that you will treasure forever and never regret, then you found the right property. In fact, all of our properties are unique and special and very romantic.
These properties also come with my services to you. I can answer any questions you have leading up to your stay, and throughout your stay on Maui. I meet all my guests personally and help them up the private elevator with luggage and groceries. I personally give you a quick tour to get you familiar with everything that's available to you. I provide complimentary early check ins and late check outs when available. Ive made several things possible for guests that they didn't have a solution for. Rest assured that you are in good hands when you stay at any of our properties. I want your stay on Maui to be the absolute best it can be, so I'm available as much as you need to ensure your experience and expectations are exceeded. I love my job, the properties, Maui, and getting to meet some amazing people from all over the world and share the Aloha spirit to all I encounter and have the pleasure of serving.

As you can see, this property is absolutely perfect, and offers you accommodations you simply won't find elsewhere in the area. with an ideal location, luxury accommodations, unique ability to have the option of a connecting suite, and superior customer service with personal concern and caring for each and every guests needs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My parents have been coming to Maui for the last 25+ years and always loved it so much. On their 25th wedding anniversary they bought their first condo in Kihei. All of their family and friends enjoyed it so much that they decided to purchase more properties to use as vacation rentals. My wife and kids would travel to Maui annually and explore the island and dream of living here. My wife and I actually started a 5 year plan to make the move to Maui, but to our surprise, my parents offered me an opportunity to change careers and move my family to Maui to live in paradise. I was working as a Supervisor for Child Development Counselors in a residential treatment facility in San Diego that worked with children and teens with severe behavioral issues. I had some experience working in property management for parents when I was fresh out of high school and later retained my Real Estate Lic in California. It didn't take long to accept the opportunity and within 30 days we sold just about everything, rented our home out, and landed in Maui to start a new chapter in the book of life. I soon discovered how much I really enjoyed the hospitality business. I'm still helping people, but in a much different way. I enjoy making my guest accommodations and vacation the best experience possible. I try to get to know my guests and their interests and point them in the right direction and provide them with local insider tips to may their time on Maui as memorable as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Maalaea, HI, USA:
This property is undoubtedly one of the most unique rental properties available. The fact that it is a 3 bedroom, full 3 bath, 1,700 sf penthouse condo with its own private elevator, and 30' x 10' lanai makes it stand out alone. And, that it is decorated to 5 star standards adds icing to the cake.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Amenities offered to make your stay feel like a home away from home experience Centrally located on island. Next to harbor for all water excursions including scuba diving, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, sailing, kayaking, surfing, visiting local Maui islands. On world famous Freight Trains surf spot aka Maalaea Pipelines known for longest and fastest wave in the world. Also walk to the Maui Ocean Center, Top-Rated Attraction in Hawai'i (Zagat Survey's U.S. Family Travel Guide), provides an up close view of Hawaiian Marine Life without getting wet! Hospitality with Aloha and the desire to exceed you expectations.
