About Alan

We have been renting our three condos for 12 years now and have met the greatest guests. One of our great pleasures is to share our Maui Home with folks who wouldn't ordinarily be able to enjoy a home otherwise. Our guests know of our experience on Maui and know that we can answer most questions based on our love of the Hawaiian culture, Maui and the track record of our experiences.

Alan purchased this condo in 2008

Why Alan chose West Maui

We only own direct oceanfront properties because when people come to Maui they come to enjoy the beautiful ocean and beach. There are 20 beaches on our block including 4 public beach parks, all within walking distance! The property is located in the best part of Maui, North Kaanapali Honokowai section. Shops and restaurants are right on our block, and the boardwalk begins at the beginning of our block and goes all the way through Kaanapali. We are 1 minute to Whalers and 5 minutes to Lahaina.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your condo. Our home away from home had all the necessities needed to enjoy our vacation. Your location is central to everything we wanted to do. we loved the views from the Lanai and the ocean waves that lulled us ever so gently to sleep! Mahalo

Adequate place to stay

  • 3 of 5

To say it's the best little penthouse in Maui is quite a bit overstated. If you want something simple and reasonably priced, it's not bad and is reasonably clean, but it's nothing special. The view is pretty good, though that area is quite a bit windier than other areas nearby, nearly all the time. There is no beach access at the property--the waves come right to the edge. We had a problem with the only key provided--there were supposed to be two. The one key provided easily broke off in the deadbolt lock the first time we used it. No one was available to help, and we had to get the broken key out of the deadbolt with tweezers we had to buy at a drugstore. Fortunately, one key is left outside in a lock box, and we wound up having to use that the entire stay as no key was provided otherwise, despite my asking multiple times. Anyway, that was a bit of a nuisance, but luckily manageable.

Owner's Response: Dear Paul: I’m sorry that your key broke off in the deadbolt. Fortunately you had a key in the lockbox to use for your entire stay. Had we known, we would have resolved the issue immediately. I have three numbers listed that you could have called: the property manager on site, our handyman next door and my own as I was also next door on island at the time. We received no reports or the key would have been replaced right away, of course. Again, I’m sorry that you felt inconvenienced. We strive to provide the best in direct oceanfront living having, among other things, a new kitchen, new cabinetry throughout, hardwood floors and a spectacular view of the ocean and island of Lanai as the pictures show. There are twenty gorgeous beaches on the block. In our ten years of ownership, all of our wonderful guests are like family and love the Penthouse and return year after year.

Best little Penthouse in Maui indeed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the Best little Penthouse in Maui! The lanai was perfect, from the Oh no! we forgot the binoculars to the last breakfast before coming home, the lanai could not get better. The Condo has everything you need, the kitchen is well stocked with a cooler for beach lunches, the bed and pull out sofa comfortable, the linens were of good quality and the bath and beach towels big and thick. The only kitchen items missing were a couple of plastic serving trays to transport food to and from the BBQ and a couple of plastic wine glasses. A favourite time for us was BBQ dinner down by the pool. It was never a one person job to BBQ. We would grab a glass of wine or drink and head to the BBQ by the pool. We chatted and exchanged stories of our daily adventures snorkeling and touring the island with other vacationers and owners while grilling our dinner and then up to our lanai with a view that could not be matched at any restaurant! Perfect! Other properties we have stayed at either had the BBQs tucked in a corner somewhere or not set up to in a way conducive to meeting and mingle with others. The location of Hale Ona Loa was also perfect. If the ocean is right you could swim right in front or a quick if the surf is too much a short walk along the sea wall will take you to a sand access. Other great beaches with public parks are within a short walk as are a coffee shop and grocery store. A couple of the best snorkeling spots are within a 10 min drive. Kapalua being a favourite. Swimming with turtles almost became common! Driving a bit further up the island takes you to DT Flemming beach to play in the surf and try out the body boards provided in the condo for a little body surfing! To top it all off Alan was wonderful to deal with responding quicker than expected to our inquiries before and after arrival. He is also thorough covering things you haven't even though of yet ensuring your stay is as best as can be. We have stayed at other vacation rentals in Maui, Kona and Kauai and Alan has been the best with which to work. Mahalo

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great trip! It was my first trip to Maui and as I walked into the condo, I immediately saw the ocean and palm trees and I knew my time there was going to be perfect. The condo is decorated in a very relaxing island style, with hardwood floors and a great kitchen. The bed is very comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. The mirrors enhance the ocean view from all spots in the condo. There's a great outdoor table set on the lanai where I ate breakfast in the morning, and watched spectacular sunsets in the evening. I even saw humpback whales right from the lanai! The grounds of the condo complex are also beautiful, and very well-kept. Thanks Alan for the wonderful time. I will definitely be coming back!

It doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We stayed at Alan's lovely condo for 10 days but could easily of stayed a month.

The condo is spacious, extremely well equipped and well located just out from the busy part of town. The location provides great access to many great swimming and snorkeling spots. The grounds of the resort are very well maintained and the pool was refreshing after a big day of sightseeing. What can we say about the lanai and views that haven't been said before?

The views are mesmerizing and many hours were spent indulging in good food and drinks while soaking up the vista. Alan clearly takes great pride in providing his guests with the best experience possible at a very reasonable price. His communication is excellent and he couldn't of been more helpful if he tried!

We can't thank you enough Alan for everything and you deserve your "excellent" rating.

Hope to visit you again

much Mahalo

Fabulous Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd trip to Maui and our favorite condo so far! We would highly recommend this property to future renters! Quiet, clean, superb views, lovely grounds, spectacular views of the ocean, whales, sea turtles and sunsets. We choose to mostly cook versus eat out, and the kitchen is wonderful! Everything we needed to prepare lovely meals. The bbqs and outside seating were fantastic! We also enjoyed the patios for up close views of the ocean, marine life and sunsets. Near by Farmers Market and Miso Phat sushi restaurant provided everything we needed. Many hikes, snorkeling, paddle boarding and surfing opportunities near by. Laundry facilities were great! This condo had everything needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxing.
