Why Jim and Kathy Dow chose Lahaina

We have been vacationing in West Maui since 1976 and absolutely love it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a glorious vacation! We have visited Maui a number of times and this is by far our favorite spot. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place with us. From the first day here we have been planning when we can bring our husbands. The ocean view is like no other. We adore the warm quiet pool and everything is within a few short steps. This is a gorgeous hidden treasure.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing! Perfect, quiet location with water, beach and grass right in front. We loved watching the whales from the lanai. Everything was clean and exactly as explained. Would love to go there again!

408 was our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our entire 3 week stay in 408! The location was amazing. From coffee on the lanai as we watched the turtles and wales, the sounds of the waves crashing, meeting all kinds of people from all over, easy access to the water, BBQ right out our door. Easy access to walk to the farmers market, the grocery store and Maui Brewing. I could go on and on. It was perfect for us and cant wait for our stay next year. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with us.

Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for my wife and I. I think it would be a little crowded for more than 2 people. It is not extravagant, but everything worked like it is supposed to work and the unit was clean and had everything we needed. As a regular renter of properties through VRBO, I appreciate it when the property has the little added things that are useful to enjoy our vacation like beach chairs, a small cooler and a bag for taking things to the beach. This property had all of these items and we used them everyday.

Amazing Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jim & Kathy once again for a lovely stay in 407 & 408. We had a wonderful relaxing time just what we all needed for our Maui Christmas. We missed the beach in front of the condo, but enjoyed other beaches and of course the pool. We saw lots of whales and of course Turtles. We love this place and can’t wait to come back again.
