About the property

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 West Maui

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.

A wonderful relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a sweet find... the location is perfect... right on the water.. turtles everywhere. The condo had everything you need to just walk in and feel at home. The condo is totally decorated with Hawaiian spirit...

All the condiments were provided, spices, oils, and a bottle of Maui wine.

Washer and dryer came in handy for small articles.. soap was provided. There were four of us and I chose the queen sleeper sofa to sleep on. I loved listening to the waves at night. The complex is very secure with night security .. so I left the slider open and locked the slider screen and felt perfectly safe. Plenty of water noodles, boogie boards... beach chairs, picnic basket and beach umbrellas were available. We have booked for next year.. thank you Marge

Perfect place for our stay!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I absolutely enjoyed our stay at Margie's condo. Having the lovely lanai on the ground floor was like having an extension of our unit. We spent many of our evenings out there enjoying the wonderful view and sunsets. Oh, and watching huge sea turtles. Margie really has thought of everything one might need during a stay there, from spices (loved finding cinnamon) and condiments, to beach towels, to anything needed to cook or prep in the kitchen. Just countless little touches that were greatly appreciated. Also, the bed was mighty comfortable! In fact, the whole place was just that - comfortable and quiet. The location wasn't far from anywhere on the west side. Thanks so much, Margie, for allowing us to stay in your second home. It was a most memorable trip and we hope to be back!

Better than we expected! Perfect for a couple or a family!!

  • 5 of 5

We searched for weeks for the perfect get-a-way. We live on Oahu and had never visited Maui. We spent hours researching the Southside verses the Westside of Maui. THANKFUL we made the right decision. This place is in a wonderful location if you want to be away from traffic and yet surrounded by things to do. Being just north of Kaanapali and just south of Napili you have so many resturarnts and activites to choose from. Truly all you need within a few minutes. Speaking of all you need, this place had it all. We only needed our clothes and snorkel masks. Margie has EVERYTHING else you will need for a wonderful vacation. The first night we were greeted by 5-6 turtles just swimming around the area. There wasn't a day that we did not see turtles. The beach was perfect and just steps from the lanai. We enjoyed dinner on the lanai almost every evening at sunset. The tiki lights and the amazing views from the bbq add the perfect touch. In the morning we were met with crashing waves and rainbows...stunning views morning and night. We loved the people we met and did I mention the location is perfect. We enjoyed snorkeling at Kapalua Bay above all the other places we tried. We ate late lunches at Sea House during happy hour as the prices and the views were unbeatable. Seriously this place was great! Stop guessing yourself and book it!

Our fantastic 25th anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We thought we'd share our last email to Margie with anyone who was thinking of taking a trip to Maui and staying in this condo. We had a wonderful time and this was our cozy home base. If you make the trip, we wish you as memorable a time as it was for us.

Dear Margie

We are almost back home and we just wanted to tell you one last time how much we enjoyed the condo and our time in Maui. We took a catamaran trip and it was well worth it. The snorkeling, hiking, and ride on the water made the time pass too quickly. We also went up to the crater -view was amazing. However, I think I will always consider my encounters with the sea turtles that live in the sea behind the condo as the most memorable part of the visit for me - they are such peaceful, Zen-like creatures.

We fed the birds off the back patio - picked up bird seed at the local store and by the end of our stay we had quite a flock show up in the am and pm. Some of the doves (white ones in particular) tried to join us in the condo if we didn't pay attention or were a little late with the feedings. Felt just like home with our own spoiled pets...

We opened the bottle of wine to celebrate the last night that and toasted the sunset, Maui, the condo, and you - all the elements that came together to make it such a wonderful time.

I wish all of your guests the kind of experience that we had - it was our 25th wedding anniversary and a time together that we will remember for years to come. The condo was very comfortable and felt like home - great place to retreat, relax and just listen to the ocean after our various daily adventures. We were grateful to have it and appreciate the thought you put into making it so comfortable.

Mahalo and Aloha, until we cross paths again.
