So close to a great string of beaches, and a variety of shops, restaurants, markets. This cute and well-appointed studio hits all the marks and really packs a great value! I hope to stay here again.

Cozy, Comfy Studio

  • 5 of 5

Steve & Tamara have done a terrific job of making sure you're getting a lot of extras in this studio! We arrived to a clean room and a nice little welcome basket of goodies - a nice start to our stay. Everything we could possibly need to make some of our meals was there - toaster oven, heating plate, blender, coffee grinder, coffee maker, all the pots, pans, dishes and so much more. They've also got a cupboard full of extras to use (beach chairs, boogie board, noodles, beach towels, cooler, thermos, beach umbrella - they've thought of everything and are being so generous in providing these items to borrow. We didn't use half of what they've got.) A big bonus in this studio is the washer & dryer. I would definitely recommend this unit to friends who don't need a lot of extra space (or a lot of fridge space - it's a good fridge but smaller). If you're out and about a lot (which you should be if you're vacationing in Maui!) then this is a good deal because the price is reasonable. It might be cramped if you were hanging out in the studio for 2 weeks. Another thing we like about the location of this unit is that it's right across from the pool & BBQ's and also not far from the main entrance so a short walk to the beach. We were fortunate in that the two different parties staying in the adjacent G103 unit were quiet (something for people to take into consideration when staying in a studio attached to a one bedroom - they aren't as sound proof as a completely separate unit).

Beautiful, Well-equipped Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is like a beautifully decorated, well-equipped hotel room that includes beach towels and chairs, refrigerator, microwave, dishes--everything you would want in a Maui condo. And the best part is that it's literally a one-minute walk to a great beach--just head down the driveway, cross the street and you're there. Fantastic beach for sunset-watching. There is a wonderful natural foods store, Hawaiian Moons, with salad and hot bars, a 5-minute walk away. Great for quick, healthy and fairly cheap meals. And for the best fish tacos in Hawaii, Coconut's is also a 5-minute walk from the condo. The condo is in an ideal location, in my humble opinion!

Tastefully decorated, clean and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need for home base during your stay on Maui!

Tastefully decorated, clean and well equipped. Comfortable bed and seating. Across the road, less than 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach and a short drive to several others. I would highly recommend this unit and would stay here agaon. Very sad to be checking out today and heading home.

The property is beautiful & so close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable. Our room was clean & inviting. We didn't want for a thing. The only downside was people monopolizing the pool on the weekend. These weren't paying guests or residents they were friends of the people that work there. It wasn't that they were there it was that they didn't have to follow the rules. Running, jumping, eating & drinking (alcohol) in the pool. We called security & he did nothing! Rules should be followed by ALL!

Los Alamitos, Ca

Great! Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay for a small party. The condo is fully stacked with a small kitchen, washer/dryer, beach chairs, etc. We stayed here for 10 days and had no complaints at all. Perfect for me and my husband on our vacation here in Maui. Walking distance to several great restaurants and across the street from the beach.
