About Janet Lydiatt
ALOHA , I am a retired R.N. living in Alberta Canada. I am widowed and have 3 children and 5 young and Joyful Grandchildren. My husband and I purchased this unit in 2010 to enjoy in retirement. I now spend a few months a year here. I am happy to share my "Maui Home "and its spirit of ALOHA with my guests. Maui No Kai Oi --- Maui Is The Best
Janet Lydiatt purchased this Condo in 2010
Why Janet Lydiatt chose Maalaea
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 here..it’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. "MAALAEA " is a HIDDEN GEM on MAUI.

Quiet Central Location
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.
Happy New Year Jodie :
Thank You first for taking the time to write this review of my “MauiHome”. Secondly, I want to Thank You for the perfect review.
I want my condo to feel comfortable like a home for my guests.
Maalaea area is always the Best kept secret.
I am glad you did take advantage of the quiet oceanfront Pool ....it often is like your own private pool.
When Maui is your holiday destination again I hope you choose my “Maui Home”as well.
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).
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
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!
Mahalo Nicole for submitting this very nice review to VRBO.
Yes, Maalaea is a terrific central location on the Island.

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.
Made To Feel At Home
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!!
MAHALO Maria for taking your time to write this wonderful review of my "Maui Home." I am so glad that you felt like home here. I always enjoy the marvellous view too. It seems like you ventured all over the Island and appreciated that Maalaea is CENTRALLY located. I definitely would welcome you back anytime.
The condo was just as advertised! The view was great. We had everything we needed for our stay. It was very quiet and relaxing throughout the entire property. We would definitely recommend renting from Janet. She was fantastic to work with.
MAHALO Jolene for writing this excellent review. I appreciate that you took the time to submit this .Reading the reviews is important to me when I choose my vacation rentals. Yes, the view of the ocean right out front is awesome. The area of Maalaea, with just 11 condominium buildings, has its own aura of peacefulness. You definitely relax when you come "HOME "at the end of your busy Island days. Thanks for choosing to stay at my "Maui Home". You and Chris are always welcome back .
