About the property

3rd floor studio condo, just steps from the beach. Perfect vacation stay for 2.

Enjoy spectacular unobstructed 180-degree views from our direct oceanfront vacation rental studio condo at the Valley Isle Resort, located directly on the beach in beautiful West Maui. Swim, snorkel, relax by the heated swimming pool or just enjoy the breathtaking oceanfront views of the islands of Lanai and Molokai, rainbows, windsurfers, and whales (in season).

The condo includes a large, private lanai, cable TV, DVD, CD/MP3 player, and private phone. The living room furnishings include queen-size sofa bed, and a comfortable desk to set up your laptop and stay in touch with home using the free high-speed wireless Internet connection. The condo will be cleaned prior to your arrival and all bed and bath linens are provided.

With the unbeatable view, you may choose to enjoy your morning coffee on the lanai, mix up a tropical drink and watch the sunset, or prepare a special romantic dinner. Our up-to-date kitchen has everything you need whatever your culinary endeavors. It is fully stocked with a variety of small appliances, dinnerware and cookware, in addition to the full-size range and refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, and disposal.

Our 3rd floor studio features a queen-size Murphy bed with hotel quality Serta mattress and box spring, which pulls down from the wall for a comfortable night's sleep and stores easily during the day to provide a spacious living area. Ceiling fans in the living area, kitchen and bath, and the security screen door allow for excellent circulation of the tropical breezes to keep you comfortable without the need for air conditioning, so you can fall to sleep to the sound of the waves. A laundry room is located just down the hall.

Resort amenities include heated pool, gas BBQ grills, free on-site parking and a friendly front desk staff to help you enjoy your stay on Maui. Golf, tennis, sightseeing and shopping are within minutes of the quiet, tropical surroundings. A variety of dining experiences are within easy walking distance of the Resort.

Whether your stay is to celebrate a special occasion, share time with family and friends, or just take a much needed break, our comfortable condo at the Valley Isle Resort will make you feel at home and provide unbeatable oceanfront living at a very affordable price.

Due to rising tides, we have had to sandbag our beach area to protect the building. During limited times of the year, depending on currents, our beach may vary in size. Even when our beach is not at its best, you can explore the many other beautiful beaches on Maui and come back to enjoy the spectacular oceanfront views and sunsets from our lanai, and have the waves lull you to sleep at night.

About Jim & Sue Keithahn

We took our first trip to Hawaii for our honeymoon in 1982, and we fell in love with Maui. After several annual visits we decided to purchase a Maui condo so that we had a place to call home for our return visits. In 1986 we purchased unit #307 at The Valley Isle Resort, totally redecorated it, and placed it in a vacation rental program. After many years of personal enjoyment and very good rental experience, we also purchased unit #1009 in 1997.

We take great pride in decorating and maintaining both condos, and we try to give them our own personal touch. We know how important it is to us to have all the comforts of home while we are on vacation, and we try to provide that same experience for our rental guests.

Both of us have lived our entire lives in Minnesota. We both had long computer related careers with a large Twin Cities based insurance conglomerate. When the company offered an early retirement option in late 1992, we took advantage of the opportunity and retired from the working world. We continue to live in Minnesota, and never have any trouble finding ways to fill our retirement hours.

We have four grown sons. The oldest lives in Vero Beach, FL with his wife and 2 children. The next oldest lives in Seattle with two children. Third in line lives in the Twin Cities area and is married with no children, and the youngest lives in the Franklin, MA with his wife and 3 children.

We spend much time traveling, to the West and East Coasts to visit our kids and grandkids, and to Maui at least twice a year for a month or so at a time to enjoy and to maintain our condos. We enjoy traveling and our travels to foreign countries include China, Germany, Switzerland and Austria, Italy and surrounding countries(Mediterranean Cruise), New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland.

Jim & Sue Keithahn purchased this condo in 1986

perfect place with great location and unbelievable views

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this condo. The bed was super comfortable. The views from the lanai were beautiful and amazing everyday. A wonderful location in west maui north of lahaina that was close to a couple of beautiful less crowed beaches we visited for snorkeling and relaxing on the beach and frolicking in the waves. Highly recommend staying here. Our only regret was that we couldn't afford to stay for six months and only stayed for a normal one week vacation. Contact with the owners was great and informative. Super easy check in and tons of parking. Don't let this one pass you by. We can't wait for our next visit. Thanks so much.

Amazing value for Maui Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this condo. It was the perfect size for my husband and me. We never felt cramped, despite it being a studio. The Bed was soo comfortable, which I was not expecting for a murphy bed. It does not have AC, but you do not need it. Just sleep with the patio door open (screen door) and we were very comfortable. Plenty of fans in the condo too. The lanai was huge and we loved sitting out there whale watching. The condo is soo close to the ocean, it was amazing to hear the waves from anywhere in the condo. There was also a cooler and beach chairs available for us to use as well. The beach in front of this resort is eroded due to a recent storm, but we were able to use the beach right in front of the next door resort- no issues since all beaches in Hawaii are public. The pool was heated and plenty warm. We also used the BBQ area for some dinners. We found the location to be good for any west Maui activities/beaches. Only about 10 mins from Lahaina Area. Overall we thought the price we paid for this unit was excellent given the amenities and Ocean front location. Jim and Sue were very helpful hosts and we hope to be able to return soon!
