We bought this property because it is our favorite place in the world. As Mauians say "Maui no ka oi," which translates as "Maui is the best." We love the climate, the culture and the people.

Awesome condo, great location.
My wife and I stayed at Linda and Robb's place 1/31/18 - 2/4-18 for our wedding anniversary. 1st off we would like to THANK Robb and Linda for their gracious hospitality as they left a bottle of Champagne (happened to be our favorite brand of Champagne!) and a very thoughtful card. The Condo is full of great artwork and Robb and Linda certainly make the most out of their space. The view is super awesome and we saw many whales and turtles right from the condo Lanai. We loved the fact there was a speaker system that we could listen to music in the evening time and watch the sunset. In the morning you can watch the sunrise over Haleakala from the Lanai. The condo is within walking distance of the Maaleaa Harbor which is where many whale watching, scuba boats, and evening sunset cruises take off so it's very convenient if you are doing any of those things. Kitchen was great, we cooked breakfast everyday. The provided beach chairs were very nice, new and not falling apart like some chairs you find in rentals. There are some BBQ grills outside right on the property with an amazing view of the Harbor that we would recommend using. The only improvement my wife and I would like to see would be to provide a parking spot in the building's parking lot. We had to park on the street, which wasnt a big deal but did get annoying after a while. Overall we really loved this place and would not only come back but would also recommend to friends, or family. Thank you Robb and Linda for being so kind and sharing your awesome condo! We hope to come back again soon!!!
Wonderful location, had everything we needed
My husband and I enjoyed staying here. It was the perfect location for a first time visit to Maui. We enjoyed having such a perfect view from our bedroom. We made 80% of our meals in our condo and ate out the rest. We were ovewhelmed with the amout of stuff in the condo. Lots of extra clutter on counters, too much furniture and not enough light in the condo. The bed was very comfortable and happy with size and space in bathroom. We loved having some drawers to put our clothes in, but wished we could of had some space to put suitcases in. The wind coming through the condo was very much needed since there isn't any air conditioning. So having the front slider open and back door open was needed, but we were nervous some of the artwork would be blown off the walls. We enjoyed the artwork, just too much around in every space.
Would have prefferred to have another chair or two on deck for company. The ceiling fans were nice, but one did not have a light that worked and the other light was as bright as a nightlight. There wasn't any room in the cupboards to put food we bought, so the food ended up on the counters for the entire 2 weeks. Maui was a wonderful vacation and we enjoyed every bit. We loved that we could walk to the harbor and shops. It was central located to go to airport, Kihie and Laihina. We loved the wind coming through which kept it cool. The pool and grounds were amazingly kept clean. Loved the new tile around the pool. We loved this place also because it wasn't overcrowded with children. Very quiet by the pool, and ocean. Loved watchign the turtles in front swimming. We would definity reccommend friends to check out staying here.
Thank you for your kind comments regarding your July 12-23, 2017 visit. We have referred your decorating and lighting comments to our Decorator who will address them when she visits in October. We suggest that our guests move the bar stools from the interior bar to the deck when more seating is needed, rather than clutter the deck by adding more furniture to the unit.. We also will open up more cabinet space for food storage. We are glad that you enjoyed your visit and hope to host you and your friends in the future.
It was a perfect place to stay with a perfect view
They had an overflow of amenities. Chairs for the beach, towels, boogie board, etc. We had so much fun and were so cozy in the unit. Nothing negative to report. Would definitely stay there again!
Thank you for your kind review of yourJune 17-24, 2017 visit. We hope to host you again.

Not so Happy !
The only thing we really liked about this place was the beautiful views from the lanai which we enjoyed using every morning and evening. The sunrise and sunsets were beautiful as were the views of Mt. Haleakala. The condo is centrally located and is convenient to other parts of the island. Our opinion is that the condo needs a thorough cleaning! It seems to have been well used over the years and was "surfaced cleaned" before we arrived. The bed linins were well used and didn't seem fresh. Not having A/C for our June visit was tolerable in the evenings, mornings and nights, but uncomfortable in the day. The airport flight patterns were right above the condo, (not mentioned in the owners description). It was somewhat bothersome and disturbed the peace and quiet well into the night. You cannot park in the condo parking spaces (again, not mentioned in the owners description)! They are reserved for owners only. We were informed by the rental manager after reserving the condo that we could park on the side of the access road across from the condo. This off-site parking on the side road under trees and shrubs resulted in a daily bug infestation of the rental car. Very unpleasant! We suspect this was because the car was covered in flowers and leaves that fell from the trees and shrubs. In addition, there was daily noise for hours (8am till 4pm) from stone and tile workers working on the BBQ area walkways. We realize this is not an ongoing thing, but it did interfere with the peace and quite we expected for our 5 day stay (Mon. thru Fri.). The main TV cable box didn't work; wouldn't change channels. The contact manager Sharon was of no help. After contacting her, she said I should call the cable company and work with them. I did, and after an hour over the phone with them, they determined that the cable box needed replacing. OK, so we didn't come to Hawaii to watch TV, but it would have been nice to relax in the living room and catch up on news. However, the small TV in the bedroom did work and we able to watch a few channels. All in all considered, we were not pleased with our stay at Maalaea Maui Oceanfront Condo.
Thank you for your review of your June 12-17, 2017 visit. We are glad that you enjoyed the beautiful views of Maalaea Harbor and Haleakala from the lanai. You are correct that the location is very convenient for accessing other parts of the island.
We are sorry that you are not so happy with some other aspects of your stay. Let me assure you that our Island Manager thoroughly cleans the unit and provides clean linens before each new guest arrives. In our website we indicated that we do not have AC. Most people find the three ceiling fans adequate. We do not list onsite parking as an amenity. We are sorry that you found the on street parking a problem. No one else has had a similar complaint. You complained about the construction noise. You correctly noted that it was confined to 8:00 am to 4:00 pm according to our rules. The condo building has 79 units and common areas. From time to time owners remodel their units and common areas need to be repaired. Unfortunately such activities can be noisy. We are sorry that you were there when that occurred. We are also sorry that you had a problem with one of the TVs. Stuff happens! The remote has been replaced.
We hope you have a better experience on your next trip.
Robb and Linda,
Thank you for your positive review of your June 6 -12, 2017 visit.
We hope to host you again.
Robb and Linda
This is an adorable little condo with a lot of personality, and beautiful views. The owner and manager were both very helpful throughout. I've been to Maui many times, and have stayed all over the island, and this was my favorite place to stay. We will definitely try to stay here when we come in the future.
The location makes it easy to access everything on the island, and listening to the gentle waves really lets you know you're in Hawaii. There's also a breeze that makes even hot days comfortable.
Thank you for your kind review of your May 14-21, 2017 visit. We look forward to hosting you again.
