"My wife and I just spent a wonderful week in Stans condo. I can't tell you enough how perfect this location is for a couple to get lost in the ocean, the view and each other! We spent hours watching whales in the morning and evening. The view is out of a movie at sunset. During the day we walked right down to the beach and snorkeled for hours. It's also a short drive to plenty of shopping areas(Whalers Village), golfing and snorkeling.
The accommodations were perfect for cooking on the bbq, or the stove(although we did not use the stove). Plenty of pots, pans, cooler(s), and wine glasses which were both glass and plastic depending on the time of day :) I didn't expect fresh towels and fresh sheets each day going in, so when we had this service it was absolutely wonderful.
While the maui kai does offer coffee in the morning, I loved my morning at Java Jazz just next to the condo. It's a short walk and wonderful coffee in the morning. We also went over to Java Jazz for happy hour and at night once for live music. It may not be for everyone, but we loved the atmosphere.
Lastly, the we loved the location of the condo in terms of beaches and people. There was a good mix of locals, tourists and those who are transported locals(living there part time). It felt much more at home than the large luxury resorts.
I couldn't recommend Stan or his condo enough, and we can't wait to go back.
* I have seen people mention the walkway and people walking by. It really isn't an issue. People walk by but most do not even look up or if they do it's a smile or a nod and they move along. It certainly isn't a parade of people that would cause distractions or annoyance."
