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!

A true paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Jim and Kathy,

We truly appreciated our stay in your condo's #407 and #408! They were clean, comfortable, well stocked and in the perfect location for us to enjoy Maui. It was also great to meet you upon our arrival.

With the recent loss of my sister, we all needed this get-away. Having the adjoining units allowed my son and his wife to have some time for themselves while giving us the option of being together as much as we wanted.

We ate dinner in one of the units every night after enjoying the sights and sounds of Lahaina & the western coast during the day. We met some interesting people and saw both turtles and whales (even tho our stay was slightly before the season!) Some weather challenges prevented us from doing everything we had hoped to experience - but relax we did! I am sure we will be back to enjoy this paradise and your great property.

Thanks again,

Marla & Mike

Met my expectations

  • 5 of 5

The pictures provided are very accurate...and yes, the beach is literally outside the patio door. Very comfortable bed, plenty of hot water and towels. This property is just a few miles from the Front St. strip in Lahaina where there are miles or restaurants, coffee shops and shopping.

The resort has excellent onsite security and gates which require keys for entry. Each night, the facilities team lights tiki torches throughout the grounds which creates a special feeling of the spirit of Hawaii.

Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful 5 night stay. This place is such a gem! The grounds are beautifully maintained and the pool is very inviting. The condo had everything you need for a comfortable stay, including snorkel gear and beach chairs. The view from the lanai is just amazing!!! I’m going to miss that the most. We will definitely be back.

WOW!! There simply are not enough words available to describe what an incredibly amazing experience this was. It was our first trip to Hawaii, to Maui. The condo fit us perfectly: close to turtles, BBQ's, and pool. It had a comfortable bed, air conditioning, and leftover sunscreen. It was our "come home to place" after snorkeling with the turtles or shopping or Hana or aquarium or luau's or anywhere on the road. We woke up every morning to birds and turtles greeting us and every night enjoyed some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world, the lighting of the tiki torches and the blowing of the conch shell. This condo is in just the right spot - we will absolutely be back!!

Just one word, Beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely beautiful. We spent 17 nights there in august. Every where you turn the views never stop. Flowers and plants, perfectly landscaped. Just stunning. Now for the review about the unit. This unit is in the best location I think on the property. You walk out of the back door through the floor to ceiling high sliding glass door that opens real wide. There is gas grills to your left and the walkway down to the beach and snorkel ladder. There are two nice 350 lb rating zero gravity chairs to relax on on the porch. (I looked them up on internet because I wanted some for my House) The kitchen has all the pots, pans, utensils that you would need. A dishwasher, garbage disposal, coffee maker, microwave and everything you need to grill out. The frigerator works great and kept my beer ice cold. The sofa was comfortable and looks like it was just purchased. We never turned on the tv so I can't tell you about that. There are these roll up shades that will help block the sun in the afternoon and also the side window in living room allows more air flow from the trade winds. We opened the front door, the side window and the back door and had nice airflow through the condo. The bathroom is large. The shower had plenty of space and the water preasure was plenty strong to wash the soap out of my wife's long hair. Toilet and all the sinks drained with no problem. We did not see any bugs or insects in that unit. Very clean. The bedroom review. The bed I believe is a king size and it is comfortable. The ac unit in the bedroom will freeze you out if you keep the bedroom and bath door closed. I Like the pocket doors in bdrm and bath. We had four suitcases and had pleanty of space. Just two of us. The only thing that the unit needs is a box fan. We are from Georgia and for me I like airflow at night. But that's me. I'm sure in the winter months you don't need it. Everything worked in that unit. We were very satisfied with the decision to rent from Kathy and Jim and not from a high rise hotel with elevators and far from the beach. When sitting on the sofa, door open, you can hear the ocean.

We covered maui from one end to the other, talk to a lot of people. It seems like it depends on were your staying if you see sea turtles or not. At our condo, right outside about 50 feet to the water we saw sea turtles everyday. You can see them swimming from the porch. I snorkeld With them. this property is very quiet and peaceful. You can relax here.
