Charming, comfortable, supportive
Everything about this holiday setting is absolutely lovely.
The condo itself is perfectly equipped with good quality items and furniture, and decorated with a Hawaiian warmth. There are ample towels, bed linen and kitchen table staples. We stayed for a month and didn’t reach the bottom of the piles.
The block of condos is spotless and extremely well curated by a competent caretaker. The pool is small but fine for a dip. The small stony beach at the foot of the lawn is great for turtle watching.
From the balcony the view of the bay and the Pacific is stunning. We saw dozens of whales each day from there, many close enough to observe easily without binoculars. We have never seen anything like it before and we are widely travelled across 5 continents.
Nikta was an excellent host, easily hitting the sweet spot between leaving us alone and offering support. She is friendly, thoughtful and charming.
Maalaea is a great location poised between the two sides of the island. A fantastic beach starts 2 minutes along the coast from the condo, with an hour or so of uninterrupted beach strolling at your doorstep.
I certainly hope to return.
Mahalo Nui Loa for your time to write such a kind review. It certainly was our pleasure to host your stay. We’re looking forward to having you back on our Paradise again. I’m so pleased to know that you had an enjoyable stay.

Nikta's Condo #219
Our stay at #219 Ma’alaea Banyans was great! We are veterans of condo rentals, and this one was better equipped than any we have visited. From blenders to cheese graters, beach chairs to beach towels, it was all there. As stated by other guests, the view of the ocean, trees and bay cannot be beat. Our stay was 14 days and the A/C was turned on 3 times at most due to the wonderful tropical breezes.
The condo was perfect for two people, and we loved the walk in shower. Ma’alaea is perfectly positioned to travel west to Lahaina or east to Kihei and is walking distance to 2 restaurants, and small stores.
We plan to make Nikta’s condo our Maui “home” on our next trip back to Maui. She takes great care of her condo, and of her guests!
Aloha Dear Dean & Jeanne, It was our pleasure to host your stay...I'm so pleased to know you were comfortable in your Maui condo and had an enjoyable stay.
Thank you for taking time to write such a nice review. We appreciate your comments and looking forward to your return back on Paradise!

Very nice Condo with an excellent location
We had an extremely nice vacation in Maui for my wife's birthday. Nikta has a very nice condo and was very well appointed. The fruit basket and chocolate treats were a very nice touch. Everything we needed was supplied and the view from the balcony was amazing. We would definitely come back to this location again and hopefully sooner than later.
Thank you very much Nikta for everything and is was very nice meeting you. Aloha
It was my pleasure to host your special trip to Maui. I'm pleased to know that your stay was enjoyable. I'm looking forward to having you back on Paradise soon!

Fantastic location and all the comforts of home
The unit had everything and more that we could have wanted/needed during our stay. There was a fresh Hawaiian pineapple and papaya as well as a delicious mac nut banana bread for our arrival. I loved the way the condo was decorated. So many nice Hawaiian touches everywhere. My favorite spot was the lanai which faced onto the bay. Outside palm trees swaying and a fantastic breeze that negated us having to use the a/c in the unit. This is how Maui should be experienced.
Mahalo for taking time to write such a nice review. I'm so pleased to know that you have had an enjoyable & cofortable stay with us. We look forward to having you back in your Paradise condo soon!.... Aloha
Very nice and perfect location
Very nice and perfect location
Coming fom Germany, I was the first time and only one week on Maui. Before arriving, Nikta helped me to organize my stay, for example to find and to book a fishing trip, which was a very exciting experience. The location in Maalaea was absolutely inviting and familiar from the first moment (I absolutely didn´t expect a welcome-basket!). Unit 219 is a completely equipped and clean household which was very nice decorated with flowers. A parking place for the rental car was included. Maalaea banyas is a good place to reach the different and interesting sights of maui because of its location in the middle of the island. From here, I started snorkling trips near lahaina and in the other direction to Haleakala and the eastern coast to the hana road. So I can absolutely recommend the appartment because of it´s central location for discovering the island and the most helpful owner, one can imagine. If I come back to Maui, it is no question where to stay.
Aloha Thomas, It was my pleasure to host your stay. I was so amazed that you would consider coming all the way from Germany to Maui to spend the only week you had off!
I am pleased that I was able to assist you with some of your activities and to know how much you enjoyed your short stay with us. Looking forward to your return back to USA/Maui.
Mahalo for taking time to write this review and your kind words.
Happy 2017 :-)
Perfect vacation spot in paradise
We stayed at the Maalaea Banyans ocenanfront condo #219 for 6 nights. This is in central area and it is so convenient to go around the island. It has unbelievable view and you can see and hear wave crashing onto the shore. We really enjoy having breakfast on the lanai, hearing bird chirping and wave gentlely crashing onto shore. Fortunately there is full moon during our stay. The view of the bay under the moonlight is so magical. The unit is well decorated and owner pay a lot of attention for detail. The shower floor is an piece of art. The owner Nikta is so helpful and friendly. She truly make this unit is home away from home. She welcome us with terrific fruit basket. She make you feel so welcome and connected. We can not ask for a better place to stay on Maui. We definitely will stay at the wonderful unit again when we come back to Maui.
Aloha Paul & Ann, It was our pleasure to host your special Maui trip. I'm so pleased to know that your stay was enjoyable and felt like home away from home! Thank you so much for taking time to write such a nice review. I'll look forward to your return back to our paradise & your Maui condo.
A Hui Hou....
