About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Aloha! Please enjoy the following photos of this wonderful condominium. I know you will enjoy your stay with us. Our private residence has one of the most spectacular views on the island. This vacation home is directly on the oceanfront and is a bottom floor unit.

This condominium has been remodeled and redecorated with authentic tropical-style Hawaiian furniture and art. You can hear and see the ocean from the living areas and

the lanai. The view and sound is just mesmerizing.You can hear the ocean as the waves are rolling into shore, reminding you that you have arrived!

We also have a private snorkeling area located here at the resort as well as one of the largest pools. The gardens throughout this small nature friendly complex are the most beautiful and well maintained as well. And if you are looking forward to dining at an exclusive one of a kind setting with the most incredible views and atmosphere, then we suggest dining on your own romantic lanai.

The tiki torches are lit up as the sun goes down and there is no better place to be than in your own private paradise. During whale season this home has the advantages of optimal views of the whales as well as the islands of Molokai and Lanai.

If you enjoy local tropical produce and like to walk, the farmers market is not far away and is across from a beach park. This vacation home will please the most discerning individuals and is of the highest quality, detail, and is offered at the absolute best value to be found. We are sure you will be happy with your decision to vacation here. Please be our guest, come feel the Aloha! You may read remarks from our guests in our guest book on this website

Why Margie Chiechi chose Lahaina

I saved my $$$$ for a long time to buy a piece of paradise. I fell in love with this complex because it only has 118 units, lovely landscape, wonder pool and this unit is ocean front ..feet from the beach. I totally remodeled the condo. It not only has a Hawaiian flare, once you walk in you feel like you are home.

What makes this condo unique

lower level ocean front view

wash and dryer

flat screen TV's in bedroom and living room

high power binoculars on tripod

plenty of water toys - noodles - boogie boards - fins for snorkeling

detergent for washing

fully stocked with all necessary condiments

a bottle of Hawaiian wine will be waiting for you upon arrival

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Margie, What a coincidence. When you email arrived I was just looking at the pictures again you had sent us of your condo.

We felt everything was just perfect. I cannot offer any suggestions at all as it was clean, updated, well stocked with food, dvd's, cd's, binocs, etc. We really appreciated all the info you sent to us re: directions, airport hints for getting the rental car, local grocery stores and restaurants, etc. And we especially enjoyed the thoughtful wine offering and the Maui tour book. Our visit could not have been more pleasant. Thank you again for making it so perfect. We had trouble thinking of going out to eat because your place was so perfect so never did get to a restaurant and enjoyed every meal at our home away from home looking at the view and the whales. We'll definitely return there. Thanks again.

Great location on the the ocean

  • 4 of 5

Great scenery out back and access to ocean. One bedroom, kitchen, bath & living room. Had everything we needed for the 2 of us. Close to retail and restaurants. But we alaways cooked in for breakfast and just enjoyed the view and getting to see the turtles in the morning. Only pain was the very tight parking. Would we stay here again - definitely!

Perfect condo in a gorgeous setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Margie's condo. The best thing about it is the setting. Walk right from the living room onto the grass and stroll 20 yards to the beach. There is also a great pool, ocean front BBQs (which we used almost every night), shuffleboard and a sea ladder for ocean jumps and snorkeling with turtles. The little beach on the other side of the property also had turtles coming and resting on the beach regularly. The condo was very comfortable for our family of two adults and two kids (6 & 3) and had everything we needed as well as snorkeling gear, beach toys, boogie boards and beach chairs. The location is ideal - short drives to beaches (Kapalua, Napili, Lahaina, Baby Beach), restaurants (Honu's (delicious!), Mala, Hula Grill, Miso Phat, Sea House) and shops (Safeway, Times).

Margie was also a brilliant host, providing all the above recommendations and ensuring our stay was perfect. We will be back!

Steps away from a private beach!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay here. We sat out on the lanai and watched the sunset and listened to the waves. We saw sea turtles swimming in the water. A couple of sea turtles even came up on the beach to recharge. We were able to get a close look at these giant peaceful creatures. We swam and snorkeled right off the private beach in front of the condo. In the evening, we took a swim in the private pool on the grounds. The condo was cozy for 4 people but it had everything we needed. If you like nature and privacy, this is the place to stay. We loved it!
