Beautifully decorated in a modern Maui design style, the penthouse includes air conditioning throughout, a private elevator opening directly into the unit, and large ocean-facing lanai - you'll experience the true essence of indoor/outdoor living in this fabulous island vacation home.

The luxurious living space offers the same incredible ocean and mountain views. Open the sliding doors and experience the ultimate in indoor/outdoor living, as refreshing sea breezes sweep through the condo.

Later in the day, relax on your large private lanai sipping a cocktail watching the sun slide slowly into the Pacific. After dinner, curl up on the couch for a movie on the large flat screen TV.

Enjoy a fully equipped kitchen to prepare your favorite meals. Not in the mood to cook? Check out some amazing Maui restaurants right nearby or just a short drive away. Don't forget to peruse the local menus we’ve collected.

The penthouse also has a washer and dryer, making it easy to pack light. You’ll find beach umbrellas, beach chairs, coolers, boogie boards, toys, floats and more! Don't forget about our variety of board games, Wi-Fi, cable TV, and DVD player.

After a day of fun in the sun, enjoy the peaceful ocean-view master suite featuring a king size bed with tropical quilt, flat screen TV, and an elegant en suite master bath with large walk-in shower, luxurious jetted bath and dual vanities. The beautiful 2nd master suite is similarly furnished with a king-size bed, flat screen TV, and second full bathroom. Our third gorgeous suite offers a queen bed and full bathroom as well.

To ensure you make the most of your Maui holiday, we offer complimentary concierge services allowing you to easily arrange for activity & restaurant reservations, transportation needs, cultural experiences, spa services, and more!

Last but not least, your island oasis is conveniently located near the resort’s oceanfront swimming pool along with a two-station barbecue area.

About Kim Hembree

My husband Mack and I have visited beautiful Maui many times over the years. Finally, on our 25th wedding anniversary, we realized a long-time dream and purchased our first property in South Maui. We enjoyed hosting our extended family and friends so much, we decided to purchase additional Maui properties to share the aloha with island visitors. Over the years, we've rented homes and condos all over the island, and experienced everything from nicely outfitted places to those that have seen better days. So we've taken great care to design and decorate our properties to not only meet, but hopefully exceed your expectations. We look forward to providing a relaxing and luxurious home base for your island activities and adventures. As they say in the islands, Maui No Ka 'Oi! (Maui is the Best!) Warmest Aloha, Kim & Mack

Why Kim Hembree chose Maalaea

The Dolphin Penthouse is centrally located on Maui with excellent access to all parts of the island but just as importantly has spectacular ocean views! A spacious layout in the condo allows guests to spend time together, while also having the option of retreating to the privacy of their own bedroom suite. And, don't forget about the private elevator! The Milowai property has outstanding amenities including an oceanfront pool, barbecue grills and we're just a short stroll away from Maalaea Harbor where you can enjoy great restaurants, shopping and a variety of ocean activities.

What makes this Condo unique

The Dolphin Penthouse is centrally located on the island, making it easy to explore all areas of Magical Maui.

                                                                        Karen W.

                                                                        We've all been to places that don't live up to their pictures. This is the EXCEPTION! It was even more beautiful in person. I used a picture from the website as my screen saver for 6 months. When I arrived, I felt like I was at home. We were celebrating our anniversary with our 2 adult sons & spouses. The condo has just the right balance of common and private spaces. Each bedroom has a private bathroom. The master bath was especially gorgeous. The common areas were beautiful. A great place to hang out to eat and talk. The whole back had sliding doors that opened with a panoramic ocean view. My husband loved drinking his coffee on the balcony and watching the boats come & go in the harbor. You can't find a better centralized location. We were able to tour the whole island. The airport is less than a 15 minute drive. The best beach on the island is just a short walk away. You can walk for miles on the uncrowded flat beach. The beach chairs & towels supplied at the condo were high quality with nice umbrellas. We even saw a sea turtle come almost all the way up to the beach. The private elevator is a great plus as well. We had a few small issues and they were fixed asap. We also really appreciated all the communication before we arrived. They were very accommodating and allowed us to cancel one of our eight days. We also were given some ideas on activities. Just my husband & I stayed an additional night at a hotel on Kaanapali Beach. We were so disappointed. The lines were long for coffee. Screaming kids were everywhere. We could hear the guy in the next room snoring. The beach was crowded and hard to walk on. We kept saying, we want our condo back! We have traveled the world, and this is definitely the best place we have stayed. It's so nice to be able to get up & have your coffee when you want it and sit around all together in your pajamas! We walked down to the pier for our snorkel trip. There are several great restaurants at the pier as well and a wonderful aquarium. The highlight was our whale watching trip. It was just a short 25 minute drive to Lahaina. No doubt, if we ever go back to Maui, we want to stay at the penthouse condo!

Great location...quiet but active. Great restaurants and of course the General Store. Turtles every day in the cove. Whales everyday off the lanai. Harbor activity was entertaining.

                                                                        There were 3 couples on our vacation and we all expressed a desire to come back and stay at the Dolphin. Oh yeah, the private elevator was the topper.

Having 6 people, it was harder to find a 3 bedroom condo, but this place was completely amazing!! In addition to that, Roland was incredible at answering our questions and giving us many good referrals of restaurants, grocery stores, etc. He contact us throughout the stay to see how we were doing and made sure we were always satisfied. He got my sister and I an icecream cake to celebrate our graduations (which was the reason for the trip). He even txt me during the "THIS IS NOT A DRILL: BALLISTIC MISSILE HEADED TOWARDS HAWAII" false alarm to keep us updated on what information he had, which I thought was extremely thoughtful considering he had his own family to worry about. The penthouse was amazing and is true to every picture! We enjoyed watching the fisherman off the break wall and all of the sea life. I can't say enough great things about this place!!!

We had a little 15 month old and he made sure all of our needs were met. When baby is happy, we are happy! The location is wonderful. Easy to get to so many places, but without the frenetic pace of the big resorts. We so enjoyed the little beach, and just sitting and enjoying the sunsets and waves. Turtles were precious! The condo is so well equipped, and has a great floor plan. The kitchen was great for cooking family meals. The private elevator was such a treat! We would return again and hope to soon!
