Maui No Kai Oi --- Maui Is The Best

Janet Lydiatt purchased this condo in 2010

Why Janet Lydiatt chose Wailuku

1.It is Oceanfront.

2. it is situated central on the Island in Maalaea Village

3 It is so Peaceful and Quiet here .Maalaea has only 11 condo buildings on its shoreline.

4 Sugar Beach is a 5 minute walk away...a 4 mile stretch of undeveloped sandy beach.

5 Maalaea Harbor is right’s interesting to watch the tourist boats . The Maui Aquarium is here. 3 restaurants are within a 5 minute walk.

What makes this condo unique

Directly oceanfront with a small sandy beach.

Located Midway between the Resort areas of

WAILEA and LAHAINA , KAANAPALI, therefore the drive to either area is shorter.

The ease of accessing all activities in the Harbor ...just a 2 minute walk away to snorkelling tours, whale watch tours and dinner cruises.

Our stay in Maui

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from another amazing vacation in Maui. This time we stayed in Maalaea. You were 100% accurate in your description of your unit. The place was quiet, well cared for, clean and comfortable and equal distance (about 20 minutes ) from everything. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning on the lanai with the view. Walked to Sugar beach which was a short walk and LOVED the turtles that were out every morning just right next door! Beach Bums at the Harbor was a great place to eat. I would definitely recommend this unit. Valerie

Owner's Response: Val, first thing is, I want to say “MAHALO” or THANK YOU for taking your time to submit this very good review. It does sound like you took advantage of the Oceanfront location of my “Maui Home “by enjoying the lanai each morning and then walking out front to watch the big turtles bobbing around in the surf and rocks... how they don’t get injured amongst the rocks always puzzles me. I appreciate that you will recommend my unit to your friends and family. I hoe you get to come again to create more Maui memories. MAUI NO KAI OI .......MAUI IS THE BEST ..... Janet Lydiatt

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Maui. Great view from the 2nd floor and a comfortable space. Walking distance to the beach and the aquarium is about 200 yards away. Also whale watching tours are within walking distance from the room.

It was easy to get to any part of the island within about 30-40 minutes (except Hana of course).

Thank you!

Quiet Central Location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay in this condo. It was fully stocked with everything we needed for our vacation. After spending most of our days on the beaches in the Kihei area, it was always a pleasure to return to the quiet condo where we could relax by the pool-most days we had it to ourselves-and enjoy the sunset from the lanai. Its central location made it easy to travel to all areas of the island in a short amount of time. My husband and I would definitely stay here again.

We absolutely loved Janet’s beautiful condo. So much detail has gone into making her guests feel welcome.The location was perfect for accessing the rest of the Island. We enjoyed watching the fisherman everyday from before dawn onwards. By far the best condo we’ve rented over the years.

Amazing location + views

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent a wonderful 6 days in Janet's home and we both agreed, we couldn't have picked a better location! We loved how central Ma'alaea is to everything on the island; we weren't more than 20 minutes from anything we wanted to do! We also enjoyed the marina, shops & restaurants (particularly the convenience of the Ma'alaea General Store), all just a 2 minute walk away. Janet was so easy to work with and so welcoming for our first trip to Maui - she provided great recommendations and stocked her home with every amenity we could have needed. We also learned Ma'alaea is a great pocket for weather; it seemed it was always sunny there, even if it was raining on the rest of the island! We spent most of our time between Lahaina, Kihe & Wailea; our favorite beaches were Sugar Beach and Big Beach.

Thank you again, Janet! Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Nicole for submitting this very nice review to VRBO. Yes, Maalaea is a terrific central location on the Island. The Maalaea General store and the Tradewinds Store do provide easy availability of some common grocery items or "To Go" snack lunch items. You have chosen terrific well loved beaches for your favourites. It sounds like Maui was a good vacation for you. Thank You for being such great guests for me Nicole. .... I hope Maui entices you back someday. JANET

Made To Feel At Home

  • 5 of 5

The minute we walked into the condo we felt like it was home. It was beautifully decorated, a marvelous view of the ocean, and every comfort made available from kitchen amenities to beach chairs and towels. The proximity to all locations on the island was perfect (NSEW) within 20 minutes to beaches, site seeing locations, shopping and great restaurants. The complex was quiet and a great place to relax after a busy day. Michael, the day manager, was very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to visit. We definitely will return for another visit!!
