About Melanie and Max Craddock

My mother's family is from Maui yet I did not visit until I was 18. The islands always appealed to me so my first big solo trip was to Hawaii. Of course, I loved it! A few years ago I was able to come back and make my dream to have a piece of paradise come true. My move to Maui brought a love into my life that is like none I've ever known. Max and I are partners in all things now and we love to share the beauty that is Maui with others. Let us know when you'll be here!

Melanie and Max Craddock purchased this condo in 2012

Why Melanie and Max Craddock chose South Maui

We love the long stretch of beach, perfect for morning walks. The location is great, so close to everything you need for a relaxing, fun vacation.

Amazing condo, amazing location, and amazing management, overall we would rate it #10 if we could!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked until we drove away...simply Amazing!!! We have been coming to Maui for over 50 years and this was, by far, our best experience yet. Melanie and Max's condo was terrific, we considered it our home for 28 of the most amazing days of our lives. And I must say...our host, Hope, was genuinely so kind and gracious. She treated us to goodies on a few occasions and we felt so welcomed. The location was absolutely perfect for us. A few reviews complained about the early morning noise with delivery trucks but we never experienced any unwelcomed noise whatsoever. We loved waking up to the sweet sounds of a variety of birds...almost as if we were in a tropical forest..just lovely. We loved the meals at Fred's and Mooses..just a few steps from our door. Parking was awesome, never experienced any problems of any nature. Laundry and garbage was close by as well. We highly recommend this condo to anyone wishing to find the perfect getaway on Maui and we would certainly stay in it again if given the opportunity. Thank you Melanie and Max for allowing us to use your home, we are not only renewed and refreshed but forever grateful and will pass on this experience to all we know. Mahalo Nui Loa and Aloha!!!

The condo was perfect! Everything was cleaned and neatly organized. The manager Hope had left us some goodies during our stay. You are pretty much close to everything. The beach, restaurants, and souvenir shops are within walking distance. This spot is good for people who are coming to Maui to venture off, not spend all their time sitting inside. Some of the reviews are right, you do hear the trucks early in the morning but it did not bother us. If peace and quiet is what you need them go else where. The value and location of the condo

Pleasant, affordable and all the comforts of home! PLUS across the street from a wonderful beach!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights and it was just perfect for our needs. We wanted to be close to the beach (right across the street). There is also a lovely pool, on site laundry facilities and the apartment was equipped with everything you could need such as beach chairs, towels, boogie boards - even sunscreen! The patio was wonderful for having breakfast and everyone we met was friendly. We decided to rent a car and it was no problem to park right outside the unit. We originally were going to rent a hotel room but I am so glad we decided to stay here instead. It was like a retreat center, much more laid back and homey!

The hostess checked on us regularly and provided awesome resource references both before we traveled and good materials in the apartment which we used! We would definitely return here if we make it back to Maui in the future.

Car: not necessary

Ideally located across the street from world famous Kamaole Beach II. We really enjoy snorkeling with sea turtles as well as taking in the view from the beach as the sun sets over the island of Lana'i. The second floor of Moose's pub is a good spot to take in the view and a drink. In wintertime, the whales join us all to toast the end of day. There is also the Maui Ocean Center in Ma'alaea harbor for up-close viewing of sea life!

Or catch a glimpse of them right from Kamaole Beach!
