Enjoy an unforgettable sunset, witness whales breaching during season at Kahana beach. Watch turtles swim by. Listen to the roaring surf. Take a refreshing plunge into the deep, cool and shady pool.

About Maile Guss


I am a professional concierge/ travel director and event coordinator/manager. I grew up on the Big Island and recently returned after 15 years on Maui.

Maui is our second Island home that we love, enjoy and frequent often. I hand picked Pohailani when searching for a condo in Maui. I am so lucky!

Our 'Ohana (Hawaiian for family) enjoys meeting new friends, exploring the great outdoors, adventure, travel and more! We deeply appreciate the peace and tranquility of our property and look forward to sharing it and our knowledge of the Islands with you.

With gratitude, Maile and 'Ohana

Maile Guss purchased this condo in 2002

Why Maile Guss chose Lahaina

Lush and green, comfortable and quiet grounds with deep pool and bbq just across from sands of Kahana beach. Easy access to everything on Maui! A pure gem in what can be a crowded and busy Maui.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a very comfortable, well stocked condo. The kitchen had everything you need to cook. Nice lanai area to hang out in the mornings. The parking was really easy and close, that was really nice. It was spacious enough for 4 adults. It could easily accommodate 2 couples or a family. The bathroom is large and the washer and dryer were really nice as well. The grounds were really pretty and well taken care of. The two pools were fun and the beach is super close. We walked there daily and saw turtles and got in the ocean. Maile was really good at communicating with us and VERY helpful with all of our needs. The price was really good for the space and the location. The neighbors are quiet and everyone is really friendly. We hope to be back.

We really loved everything about staying in the condo and Maui in general. It's in a perfect location, close to beaches, shopping, eating and many other things. Even with all of this close by it was extremely quiet and peaceful. Thank you for the wonderful vacation in Maui!

Great Condo near Lahaina and many beaches !!

  • 5 of 5

Maile's cozy condo is located in a beautiful complex, with a wonderful garden and a large pool. We enjoyed our breakfast on the lanai every day with this great view of all the tropical plants around. The condo is equipped with everything we needed and nothing was missing. We spent great days here and if we come back to Maui, then Maile's condo is definitely our first address. Thank you Maile, for your perfect instructions and sharing the condo with us !!!

Very cozy and welcoming condo with a very friendly and helpful hostess.

  • 5 of 5

Maile's condo fit our needs perfectly! The place is warm, welcoming, has all of the basic necessities, and is perfectly located for all sorts of adventure and relaxation. The condo grounds are very well kept and include a large lovely pool and community barbecue area. Our stay was excellent but not nearly long enough. Our whole family enjoyed Maile's place and would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing homey environment for vacation.

We really enjoyed our stay in Maile's condo in Maui. The lanai was a great place to eat our meals. The beds were comfortable, and the kitchen has everything necessary. The condo is conveniently located. It was also easy to reach Maile by phone or text message in case we needed to. Thank you, Maile!
