  • Right Next to the Shore and Very Close to the Beach!!!

    The condo is right next to the shore and very close to the beach.  The beach is clean and long.  Good for playing, walking, swimming and other activities.  You can even see turtles.  Howard’s information by email and his website and cards when you reach house helped us a lot to plan the vacation.  The house has everything you would need to enjoy your vacation.  Howard has taken care of equipping the kitchen with all the utensils and appliances.  We were surprised to find boards, snorkeling equipment, beach seats and lot of towels.  We will definitely come back to this condo when we come back to Maui.  Thank you for the wonderful stay.  We will definitely recommend your property to our friends and family.

  • The Condo was Peaceful, Relaxing and Welcoming!

    Aloha Howard, thank you for the wonderful accommodation, it was great! Our family really enjoyed our stay there. The condo was very peaceful and relaxing. The area didn’t have many people so it wasn’t too loud or crowded. The people who were there were kind and friendly and makes you feel welcomed. The pool was never really crowded so it was easy to swim peacefully and the view of the ocean was beautiful. It was nice sleeping to the sound of the ocean waves. overall it was a great experience and I would come back again. We left a couple of water bottles, fruit drinks and frozen chimichangas.  I’m sorry for the trouble, but we didn’t want to throw them away. We would definitely rent your place again whenever we come back to Maui.

  • We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend this condo

    Howard’s condo is in a great location. Being situated between Lahaina, Kihei and Costco makes it quick and easy to go wherever you want for your daily adventures. As for the amenities, we had breakfast and dinner at our condo using all of the great cooking appliances, tools, and BBQ.  The lanai is perfectly situated looking out at the ocean, gardens, and pool.  We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend this.  Howard’s beachfront condo was amazing.  We had all the amenities that we have in our home from a blender, juicer, BBQs and the list goes on.  Having two separated bedrooms each with their own on suites were great and the lanai was perfectly situated looking out to the ocean, gardens, and pool.  Howard, you are a great host.

  • FANTASTIC time at Howard’s place!!!

    We had a FANTASTIC time at Howard’s place!

    The location is great, not too touristy, but very convenient. The balcony and bedroom overlook the ocean, and we could hear the waves all night with the window open. There’s a pool, lawn, and BBQ at the facility too. The condo was completely clean, has all of the kitchen amenities you need (I recommend a run to Costco when you land), and he also provided TONS of resources for us.

    He gave restaurant recommendations, activities, directions, and even laminated info cards on the island. I highly recommend using Pacific Whale Foundation for all of your snorkeling and whale watching activities. They provide a great experience, and are around the corner (5 mins walking) from Howard’s place.

    Howard is a very forthcoming host, and not only was the communication above and beyond, accessing the place was really easy too. My group of 4 adults (2 couples) really enjoyed our stay, and Howard is one of the best hosts I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with on Airbnb. Howard and his condo are highly recommended!

  • Howard was Very Thoughtful to Describe Everything

    It was our family’s first time in Maui, and we felt ourselves lucky to stay here during our week-long vacation.

    We never once had to contact the host during our stay, as everything was well explained before our trip and there was detailed instructions for everything left in the condo.  Amenities in the unit (including the a/c, coffee maker, TV) worked great, the beds were comfortable, and we had a great sleep every night.  The photos of the condo grounds do not do it justice!  The views from the lanai are breathtaking, and the upkeep of the grounds are truly perfection. It does get windy in this area, but it’s better than the light rain that the Northern part gets, and I would welcome the wind during the hot summer months.

    Our itinerary was full of activities (less beach-only activities), and the central location was perfect to travel to all our excursions (Lahaina, Road to Hana, Haleakea, etc).  After long days of excursions, the central location and short ride home was so beneficial for us.

    For our beach days, it was only 10 min to get to the nice sandy beaches in Kihei. My parents have a very particular palate, so we cooked a lot at home and put the large BBQ on the condo grounds and the rice cooker provided to good use.  The unit had all the essentials we needed, and grocery stores were close by.  (Tip for Koreans.  Do NOT go to the Korean grocery first.  Go to Foodland first as their Asian products, including rice and instant ramen, are a LOT cheaper).  We had a great time, and our stay at Howard and Kathleen’s condo really helped make our vacation enjoyable.

    Howard was very thoughtful to describe everything about the condo and how to access from airport, from condo to beach, restaurants.  And the place was exactly like the pictures nice and clean and great view! My friends and I enjoyed it very much and loved this place.  We hope we can visit someday again!

  • Amazing Time at Howard’s Condo—Everything Was as Expected

    I had an amazing time staying at Howard’s condo for the week. Everything was as expected and I really enjoyed our beautiful view. His recommendation cards were amazing and we found really great places to visit based on his recommendations. I would definitely return to Howard’s condo the next time that I am in Maui. Thanks Howard! ”

  • Picture-Perfect Oceanfront View– Everything You Need for a Beach Vacation on Maui

    We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Maalaea206.  The condo has a picture-perfect oceanfront view and low key vibe ideal for Hawaii, and is very comfortable and well stocked with everything you need for a beach vacation on Maui.

    We especially liked the location, which made exploring all parts of the Island an easy and quick drive.  After being out all day, it was great to enjoy the warm pool and setting sun.  The condo grounds are beautiful and immaculately maintained and the only noise you hear is the soothing sounds of the Hawaiian trade winds.  It was a breeze working with Howard.  He was very accommodating and made our overall stay on Maui a great experience.

  • This place is just perfect and we are so happy we got to stay at such a nice condo!!!

    Howard provided detailed information about all aspects of the condo and location.  Very helpful.  

     

    The condo was fantastic.  The furnishings, artwork, bedding, and towels were all new and the condo looked great. The condo was immaculate.  Everything was clean and the white tile floors were spotless.  There is a beautiful patio that overlooks the ocean and Haleakala.  It’s a picture perfect setting. We enjoyed our coffee and breakfast there every morning and a glass of wine every night. It’s the perfect place to relax.  The condo also overlooks a pool. The pool was used frequently by others in the condo building.  Kids used the pool but it was never too noisy and the pool emptied out by 9pm.  

     

    We cooked dinner at the condo 3 nights. There is a Foodland about 10 minutes away, so it made shopping easy.  Everything we needed to cook was available in the kitchen.  The condo is centrally located, so it took about 30 minutes to reach the start of the road to Hana, about 30 minutes to the base of Haleakala, and about 30 minutes to Lahaina. It’s about 20 minutes from the airport.  

     

    The condo is about a 10 minute walk from a beautiful, secluded, quiet beach that stretches on for several miles.  This place is just perfect and we are so happy we got to stay at such a nice place while we vacationed in Maui.

  • Perfect Example to Showcase a Maui Condo—Everything is Provided for a Wonderful Vacation!!!

    Howard and Kathleen are the best.  If Airbnb wants to showcase, they should use Howard and Kathleen as the perfect example.  First, they are excellent communicators.  Everything you will need and much more is emailed upfront which is extremely helpful.  Once we got to the condo, it is beautiful.  Every aspect of your experience is well thought out – the new furnishings, decor, comfortable beds and all the way to the real nice soft bath towels.  They also have beach towels, chairs, umbrella, snorkel equipment, beach toys for kid, mats, etc. for your trips to the beach.  Everything you need to do in Maui is in nicely laminated easy to follow directions pages that is very helpful.  We loved their beach recommendations and one of the beaches they liked was our absolute favorite.  We saw turtles swimming right outside the condo.  We had the best experience.  If you are going to Maui and need a two bedroom place, rent Howard and Kathleen’s condo.

  • Great Experience, Excellent Hosts, Wonderful Travel Tips!!!

    This was our first experience staying in a condo using Airbnb.  We were not sure how this would turn out specially since we were taking a trip to Hawaii and did not want to feel comprised.  However all the anxiety was over as soon as we signed this immaculate condo with our host, Howard.  Right from the beginning he made us comfortable by sending helpful hints regards eating places, beaches to see and travel and packing tips.  Until the end of our vacation Howard helped us with all our questions starting from the day we signed till the end.

    Very gracious host and we have nothing but all praises for the treatment and help we got.  The condo is very beautifully and tastefully decorated and we felt very much at home after our long travel from east coast.  Everything right from kitchen to bedroom and lanai was very well furnished and amply stocked.  It was a great experience and we want to thank Howard and Kathleen for being excellent hosts and want to thank for sharing their condo or their “second home” as they call with us.  We will never forget this wonderful experience and hope to come back with our family and friends in future. Again thanks for everything!!

  • Heated Pool is Warm and Perfect for Evening Swimming!

    Howard’s place is just as described in his online description.  Walking in, we got everything we expected and more.  The pictures do not do justice to the actual view itself.  It is breathtaking.  Everything was in great working order also.  We have kids ranging from 7 months to 11 years old and all of them enjoyed themselves.  One thing I didn’t notice on the reviews is the fact that the pool has to be heated because it is so warm and perfect!  My kids really enjoyed swimming in the evening time.  I would definitely recommend staying here anytime!

    Megan Galhouse

  • Attentive, welcomed, comfortable; Beach beautiful and as if we had our own private beach!!!

    Howard was very attentive, and he made sure we feel welcomed and comfortable.  The place was as described, roomy with a good view of the ocean.  The neighborhood was excellent.  The beach was beautiful but quiet, as if we have our own private beach.  We would come back again in the future.

  • Accommodations were exceptional: it’s truly what you see pictured on the site

    This was our first trip to Maui, and the accommodations were exceptional.  It is truly what you see pictured on the site.  Out away from the towns, but just far enough.  Quiet and well maintained both inside and out, a true home away from home.  The rooms were well appointed, having everything you might need to start your vacation, except for the food… lol. Really!!!  The trip to Costco or wherever can wait until you get settled.  Bath soap, shampoo, conditioner, insect repellent (should you find the need), and even blow dryers in the bathrooms, and community BBQs out by the ocean are provided.  So, no problem if you happen to arrive in in the evening, there is nothing to get except dinner along the way.

    A quick drive down the highway from Lahaina, and we even took a snorkeling trip from the wharf within walking distance right up the sidewalk.  There is a small, yet convenient, shopping area in the same area as the wharf, and a great inexpensive bar and grill with outstanding BBQ entrees, awesome drink selections, a Happy Hour, and live entertainment every evening.  We even had time to visit the Up Country (another short drive), after checking out and before catching our flights back to the Mainland.

    We found so many things to do and places to go within just a short drive.  One thing I especially liked of the many others, was the packet of cards that was conveniently placed on the coffee table that had all the information about the condo, from help with the TV to the nearest Grocery stores, the distance and directions to the beaches and other attractions of interest, as well as types of fish commonly found in the area.  There was a neat little notebook left for the renters to fill out, telling about their stay that was great to read and we enjoyed adding our experiences to it also.

    Also, the owner is very hands-on with advice both before, during and after your stay. He (they) make(s) you feel comfortable asking about anything.  I would definitely recommend this condo as a place to stay to anyone, couples or families, wanting to experience Maui at its best.

  • Great location, comfortable condo; ideal for two couples

    We stayed in this condo for 12 days and found it to be ideal for two couples.  With bedrooms and ensuite [bedroom with adjoining bathroom] at either end of the condo, we were each able to have our own space when we needed it. The condo is well set up with all holiday needs and its central location proved to be ideal for driving around the island.

    There is a great restaurant/bar close by and fishermen are well catered for with a large selection of charter boats in the harbour.  Golfers have a large choice of courses within a ten minute drive and more affordable than some of the big-name courses.  Overall I would highly recommend this condo for your stay on Maui.

    John Tunbridge

  • Great place to stay and centrally located!!!

    We enjoyed our stay in Maui and found the condo to be a great location for all our day trips around the island.  We are a family of five (3 teenagers) and didn’t want to feel squished into a tiny condo or hotel room and Maalaea 206 provided us with plenty of room.  Thanks to Howard and Kathleen for providing boogie boards and snorkeling equipment– had so much fun with those at the beach!

    Watching the sunrise on the lanai every morning was such a tranquil way to start the day and we enjoyed many walks down the beach– you can literally walk for miles.

    We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a condo in Maui.

    Karen Ethier

  • Great—Perfect location for staying in Maui:  will stay in condo again!!!

    The condo is in a perfect location for staying in Maui. Close to the airport and centrally located on the island.  Howard, the owner, is awesome to work with and very customer service oriented.  They supply the toys for the beach including chairs, towels, boogie boards, and a cooler.  Our next trip we will definitely stay in the condo again when we come back to Maui.  There is a great restaurant near the aquarium “Seascape” that has wonderful food and ambiance and is a short walk from the condo which makes it nice if you want to have a drink or two and not drive.  Thanks Howard for being great to work with and taking care of our needs at the condo.

  • I can’t say enough good things about Howard and his condo!!!

    We had a wonderful time at Howard’s condo.  The condo is in a quiet, low traffic neighborhood, and the view of the ocean was breathtaking: you just can’t get enough of it.  The lanai is a great place to sit and relax and a couple of times, we were able to spot whales!  Howard is a great host and is very easy to get in touch with by email or text.  He was very helpful long before our trip with information and tips of the neighborhood and island. In the condo, there are laminated sheets of all the information you need about everything– grocery stores, beaches, restaurants etc.  What a great resource!

    The condo was very clean and tastefully decorated, and we really appreciated the box of chocolate covered macadamia candy left for us.  What a lovely and thoughtful gesture!  The kitchen is well equipped and cleaning supplies are provided so you don’t have to buy anything.  There’s plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys, mats, a cooler, body boards, anything you can think of bringing to the beach.  It’s made our vacation so much more enjoyable.  I can’t say enough good things about Howard and his condo.

  • Perfect location, Perfect hosts!!!

    A perfect experience in a beautiful place.  We traveled to Maui for our daughter’s wedding and included elderly and young people, with a lot of activities all over the island and found the condo to be in great proximity to it all.  Beautifully furnished, supplied with any and all beach going items you will need and the onsite staff and support to keep everything in tip top shape.  A great view of the turtles, whales and other ocean life from your balcony, left us a with a amazing view both morning and night.  The sound of the waves and the ocean breeze at night was lovely and the complex was very quiet and with the adventures supplied at the marina and beaches within minutes in either direction.  We would definitely stay again and look forward to returning soon.

  • Beautifully maintained property with all the amenities and a fantastic view

    Howard’s place is exactly as described in his listing.  It is a beautifully maintained property, all the amenities you could possibly want, fantastic view.  Howard was so responsive in communicating with us, answering all our questions.  He supplies all the extra things:  snorkel gear, beach towels, cooler, sunscreen, insect repellent and the welcome box of chocolates.  If you stay at Howard’s place you are fortunate.

    It is in a great location on the coast with great restaurants nearby.  As an added bonus we saw whales from our lanai every day.  Thank you Howard for sharing your beautiful spot.

  • Excellent place to stay on Maui!!

    We so enjoyed staying at this condo! Having the beautiful view and sound of the waves was fantastic! Pictures and descriptions on this site were excellent and right on!

    The location was nice and not far from the airport, shopping or restaurants. The beach was steps away as were a few stores, restaurants and the aquarium.

    The furnishings were very nice and having a fully equipped, full size kitchen was also a plus. Everything was clean and well maintained. Beds were comfy and the complex was quiet.

    Pages of information provided by the owner before we left home plus more pages of information in the condo came in handy and having an onsite property manager is always nice. The owner has answered any questions almost immediately.

    We would return in a heartbeat.

    Such great memories! We were really sorry when we had to leave Maalaea206.

  • Beautiful Setting in Paradise!!!

    I stayed here with my Husband and my Dad.  The place was exactly as it was shown in the pictures. Very nice and clean – the grounds were very well kept.  The owners were very easy to work with and answered all my questions and had good ideas for us during our stay.  The whale watching was spectacular!!!  And the turtles were awesome.  It was very nice and quiet and had everything that we needed.  I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a beautiful setting – and a nice relaxing vacation.

  • The Condo is Next to the Ocean and Our Stay Was Wonderful!!!

    I stayed a month at Howard and Kathleen’s condo and it was wonderful.  The property is right next to the ocean.  We saw whales while sitting on the lanai. The condo was exactly as advertised, clean, newly decorated, plenty of towels, boogie boards, snorkels and beach toys for the kids.  The grounds at the complex were immaculate and the pool was quite large and very refreshing.  It never got crowded.  If ever I am fortunate enough to return to Maui, I would have no hesitation in renting this condo again.

    Cathy Little

  • Fantastic Location, All Needed Amenities, Beautiful Antiques

    Fantastic location, easily drivable to most parts of the island.  If you like being by the water, this condo is great for falling asleep with the waves crashing in the background. Also right next to the whale watching harbor. Ideal for families, seniors, or folks new to the island looking to be in a central location to explore everything.  Howard also does a really good job of explaining what is available to in terms of local sites to visit.  The condo is also in great shape with all the amenities you need, along with beautiful oriental antiques.

    Katarina Maloney

  • Excellent Comfort, Amenities and Location!!!

    The condo location, comfort, and amenities were all excellent.  My family really loved being away from crowded places, and at the same time being within a short driving distance to many popular beaches– and of course very close to the Maalaea recreational harbor.

  • Perfect 2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom with Pull Out Sleeper! Excellent Ocean Views!

    This is a perfect 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom condo with wonderful Ocean views! This was my first ever trip to Hawaii! We traveled the week of Thanksgiving, and rather than staying in a resort we through to rent a larger, more personal space. I am so glad we picked this unit!  There is plenty of space and you can’t get any closer to the ocean!

    This property is perfect and has everything you need! The bedrooms are big and and both have large closets with plenty of storage.  Not only is there plenty of storage, both bedrooms have large private bathrooms.  The kitchen is great and has everything we needed (we cooked a Thanksgiving meal) and we made great use of the two very nice outdoor gas grills on the property.

    This being my first ever trip to Hawaii I was a little worried about what to do during the day.  Not to worry — this unit is in a great location and we never had to drive any further than 10-15 minutes to schedule surfing lessons and snorkeling trips!

    I would highly recommend this property to anyone!

    Thank you!!

  • The PERFECT Vacation Rental

    My husband and I could not have asked for a more comfortable, beautiful condo to stay in for our honeymoon trip to Maui.  We absolutely loved the location of the condo. It felt like we were right in the middle of all the island attractions.  Being close to the boat harbor was a huge plus for us since we booked a deep sea fishing trip and a snorkel trip all leaving from the Maalaea Harbor. The condo is about 15 minutes from cool towns like Lahaina and Kihei.  It’s a short walk to an awesome beach!  We walked to the beach nearly every day and it was never very busy. The sand is soft and the waves were tame.  We also spotted sea turtles!

    The view from the condo is spectacular!  Sunrise and sunset paints the sky with the most beautiful colors.  We loved being so close to the ocean!  We watched sea turtles from the lounge chairs for hours and let the sound of the waves put us to sleep at night.

    The condo itself is very spacious and comfortable.  It felt like a place to live in (as opposed to a hotel) and came with everything we needed: dishes, kitchen appliances, towels, snorkel gear, etc.  The decor was great too!  Definitely felt like a beach vacation-type home.  There was beach information and directions as well as guidebooks inside the condo that were very helpful!

    We will recommend this condo to all of our friends and family!

    Andrej and Kristin Sokolov

  • Fantastic time in Maui

    What a great vacation condo!  The view is stunning and only steps away to the ocean. Great cross breeze with the front screen door open and locked and the sliding door open.  Used the AC at night just for better sleep. Beautiful, big sea turtles hang out near the waterfront, so our days always included a visit with them! The condo itself is beautifully decorated and cozy.  The beds are extremely comfortable and the seating in the living area was more than adequate: a comfy sofa and several chairs which worked quite well for four adults. The towels were large, soft and luxurious.

    Can’t say enough about the great customer service provided by the owner and the helpful onsite manager.  The laminated information sheets and maps were really useful and helped us countless times.  A large 4 mile long beach is a short walk away. Great for boogie boarding, long walks, a swim, or contemplation.  Almost forgot to mention the chairs, cooler, towels, boogie boards and snorkel equipment available for your use.  What a great place!  Would we stay here again? Definitely.

  • Very clean and comfortable with spectacular views

    Howard was extremely accommodating providing lots of information about the condo and the area. The condo was exactly as descried.  We loved it and the location. It was very clean and comfortable with spectacular views.  The grounds of the condo were very well maintained. Staying at Howard’ s started off our Maui trip perfectly and we would highly recommend this as a great place to stay while visiting Maui.  Thanks Howard for sharing it with us!

  • Already looking forward to my next stay!

    Howard did a truly fantastic job before, during, and after our stay.  The property is equipped with every amenity you’d need, the location is perfect, and the views are absolutely beautiful.  I would recommend this listing time and time again, and I’m already looking forward to my next stay!

  • We recommend this condo to everyone and we thank our hosts for a great time!

    Our stay in the beautifully decorated and very well equipped condo unit (including snorkeling equipment, bodyboards, beach towels, etc.) was delightful.  Howard was kind and generous!  As our host he provided a lot of communication from the beginning and gave us a wealth of information about the accommodations, its amenities, Maui and the surrounding areas.  The apartment inspired us with its cleanliness, expected appliances and an incredible view of the ocean (with very many turtles!  So, from the start we felt at home. Everything about the condo was properly organized, straightforward; and the condo also includes a parking space right outside the front door, a nearby laundry room and a swimming pool with direct views of the ocean.  Staying at Howard’s place really enriched our vacation—we recommend this condo to everyone and we thank our hosts for a great time!

     

    Translated from German:  Unser Aufenthalt in der liebevoll eingerichteten und sehr gut ausgestatten Unterkunft ( Schnorchel, Bodyboards, Strandhandtücher, …) von Howard war wunderschön und ließ keine Wünsche offen! Unser Gastgeber hat von Anfang an sehr viel mit uns kommuniziert und uns eine Fülle von Informationen über sein Apartment, Maui und Umgebung gegeben. Die Wohnung begeisterte uns mit ihrer Sauberkeit, landestypischen Einrichtung und dem unglaublichen Blick auf den Ozean(sehr viele Schildkröten!:-), sodass wir uns von Anfang an Zuhause gefühlt haben. Alles organisatorische war unkompliziert geregelt und zur Wohnung gehören außerdem ein Stellplatz direkt vor der Haustür, eine Möglichkeit zum Wäsche waschen und trocknen, sowie ein Pool mit direkten Blick auf den Ozean. Der Aufenthalt bei Howard hat unseren Urlaub wirklich bereichert – wir können diese Unterkunft ohne jeden Zweifel jedem weiterempfehlen und bedanken uns auch auf diesem Wege bei unserem herzlichen Gastgeber!

  • Wonderful time in Maui at your condo and we hope to be back!!!

    The condo was wonderful. From the astonishing views of the ocean and mountain, to the cleanliness of the entire apartment, to the comfortable beds, to the overall convenience; we had everything we needed for our stay and much more. We were a party of three and it was nice to have two bedrooms with their own bathrooms. The place is nicely decorated. There were also plenty of beach towels, which was so useful for our Road to Hana trip. There were also some very helpful guide books and materials to explore the area. The condo is in a great location, walking distance to the harbor, where we leave for snorkeling trips, as well as to convenient stores and restaurants. Howard was very easy to communicate with and very attentive; he provided all the information and details needed for a great stay. Thank you very much Howard and Kathleen, we had a wonderful time in Maui at your condo and we hope to be back!!!

  • Fantastic condo in a great location on Maui for teenagers

    We just returned from a fantastic family vacation in Hawaii which started off in Maui. The condo was great for our family of 5 (3 teenagers and 2 adults) and had everything we could have hoped for including fantastic views!!!  We really appreciated the advice and suggestions from the owners as well as the comfortable, clean accommodations. We would highly recommend this property, and suggest it to any friends we had travelling to Maui. Mahalo!!

  • Very comfortable for six of us—we had everything we would ever need

    Howard’s condo on Maui was everything and more of what we expected.  The location was just what we were looking for, quiet and very beautiful.  The condo was very nice and was very comfortable for six of us.  We had everything we would ever need, plenty of beach toys and towels, a fully equipped kitchen, just a quick walk to the beach.

    We really enjoyed getting up and having our coffee out on the balcony watching the sun come up—this was truly relaxing and beautiful.  We will return one day and would love to be able to stay in this beautiful condo.  Thank you Howard and Kathleen for sharing you wonderful piece of paradise with us.

  • View from the lanai was spectacular. We will be back!!!

    Our stay in Maui, at Howard’s condo, was a fabulous experience.  It was perfect!  It has everything you need.  It is In a nice quiet complex that is close to the popular spots, should you want “action.” The grounds surrounding the complex were impeccably kept.  The view from the lanai was spectacular!  We couldn’t have asked for a better place to vacation. I guarantee we will be back!!

  • We loved our time on Maui and would definitely stay here again!

    We loved our time on Maui.  The condo really added to our enjoyment.  The condo was very accommodating to our family of 6.  It was well stocked with kitchenware and the stuff we needed for our trips to the beach.  When we were not out exploring the island, the pool and open grassy areas were very nice for our kids to play in.

    The crashing waves just outside from the lanai and the constant breezes really made the condo comfortable. W e loved the central location of Maalaea and the quiet area that the condo was in.

    The owners of the condo were very responsive to any of our inquiries.  The website that they have set up for their condo is well put together and offers a lot of useful information for first-timers to Maui.  We would definitely stay here again if we are able to go back!

    Brandon Ayers

  • Quality of the linens, decor, and accessories were top notch!

    My family and I were very happy to have stayed at Howard’s beautiful condo for 4 days.  The ocean view was an awesome treat every morning while drinking coffee on the lanai.

     

    The place was exactly what the pictures described, and I think the space was bigger in person.  I loved watching the turtles hangout and eat along the rocks off the condo.  The area is quiet and private.  Quality of the linens, decor, and accessories were top notch!  Communication with Howard was easy & quick. He made sure to provide us with information early and often!  Having AC was very nice, but the breeze from the ocean kept us cool most of the time.  I would recommend having a car to get around, since places to eat are limited in Maalaea; we found ourselves going into Kihei (15-20 min drive) for dinner.

     

    For my family, Maalaea was the perfect location for our planned activities, in the middle of West & South Maui. Of the three places we stayed at, including a resort, Howard’s condo was my parent’s favorite!

  • Perfect Family Accommodation!!!

    Perfect family accommodation.  We stayed for 5 nights on a family holiday with my husband’s parents & our 1 year old daughter.  We couldn’t have found a more perfect location.  Fantastic beach front, without the busyness of Kaanapali.

     

    Perfect ocean views from the balcony & main bedroom.  We even saw turtles swimming out the front most evenings.  The condo was a great size for our busy toddler to roam & play.  It was also so well stocked with everything we needed.  The kitchen has every appliance you need.  An abundance of beach towels.  Even children’s beach toys & boogie boards.  The toiletries that were provided were an additional nice touch.

     

    The condo has air conditioning, but it was not needed since a beautiful breeze blew up from the ocean.  We hired a car so we’re able to drive around to all of the popular tourist locations. If you want to leave Maalaea you really need a car, the local convenience stores don’t stock much so you also need a car to drive to grocery store.

     

    The local residents were all so helpful & friendly also. We made a lot of friends while playing on the grass area and swimming in the pool.  All in all a perfect family holiday.  Would recommend to everyone.

  • Delightful, Peaceful, Attractive Condo! Loved It!

    I highly recommend this condo for anyone. It is beautifully decorated with an Hawaiian theme.  It has new attractive furniture, comfortable beds in the 2 bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen, living room, and a porch overlooking the sea. The condo association has a lovely outdoor pool, a beach close by, even a restaurant you can walk to and hear music.

    Maalaea is well situated, both quiet and peaceful, but minutes from places to go boating, diving, snorkeling, surfing, rollerblading, biking, hiking.  The owners provide lots of ideas of places to see and possible activities, complete with maps and detailed information. The owners are easily accessible and helpful.I give this a 5 star rating.  I would return and urge others to visit!

  • Stunning Views, Clean Elegant Furnishings and Peaceful Surroundings

    If you are looking for stunning views, clean elegant furnishings and peaceful surroundings this is the place for you. Howard and Kathleen were easy to contact, they left a great manual on the condo. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. The condo supplied us with most everything we needed for day trips when traveling around the island. We loved our stay in Maui!

  • Beautiful Oceanview Condo

    Clean, comfortable condo with immaculate property grounds located pretty much in the center of Maui island activities. Quiet and peaceful. Beautiful ocean views from the balcony. It was oceanfront but tucked back from the waters so that it wasn’t noisy. Had all the amenities to make the stay comfortable. Will consider to stay here again.

  • Howard Was Very Helpful and Responsive

    Howard was very helpful and responsive when we needed to extend our stay in Maui on short notice. All of the necessary information regarding access to the apartment and parking, as well as contact numbers for questions and emergencies were provided as part of his initial informational communication. Extras such as beach towels, sand toys for children and so on were provided as part of the stay. The ocean front view from the apartment was great, the sound of the waves throughout the day and at night, and the nearby beach made this a great place to spend time.

     

    The location is also convenient to much of the island, from the beaches on the west coast, to the beaches on the south coast, as well as shopping for necessities in Kahului only fifteen minutes away by car. The beds were comfortable, easily accommodating three adults and a small child. The kitchen was stocked with dishware, utensils, knives, and pots and pans to make cooking for several people possible. Lastly, TV and internet service were solid and easy to use, and allowed me to deal with work when I had to extend my stay on Maui beyond my anticipated return date.

     

    The location was really ideal for our needs, and the rapid turnaround and informational email and binders were very much appreciated. The view and the sound coming from the ocean were very soothing…. The grounds of the property were very nicely maintained and relaxing, and I liked that the beach park at the end of the street was off the beaten path, seemingly enjoyed primarily by locals.”

  • Very Nice Condo!!!

    After a very long flight from Sweden we arrived to this wonderful condo with a terrific view.  We had a lovely vacation here and were able to both watch whales and swim with turtles.  The condo was perfectly cleaned and had nice furniture and a fully equipped kitchen.  Before we arrived we got a lot of useful information.  We can really recommend this condo!

  • Great View from the Living Room and Master Bedroom

    My family had a great time and enjoyed our stay here.  The apartment has everything we needed, and is in a very convenient location.  The view from the living room and master bedroom is definitely great.  Though the condo is very close to the ocean, it’s pretty quiet; we all got really good sleep during our stay.  (I spent a day in another ocean-front cottage hotel, there is a very big sound of waves and winds!)

    The only nitpick is the reserved parking slot is little bit narrow for our mid-size SUV. So, just be careful when parking your car.

  • As Advertised, Very Pleased, Will Return

    Just returned to Washington from our two week stay in Maui.  I’ll start by saying the pictures you see are real, and the first one Labeled “View from Lanai” is exactly what you see.  I would guess it’s about 40 yards to the water.  The owner is first class and very easy to communicate with.

     

    Even though it was only late November, we did manage to see a few whales from the lanai and grounds.  And the big surprise was the turtles!  I’m told by the locals, this is a new feature.  There were only one or two days when we did not see turtles right in front of the condo.  At times we were watching up to eight at a time. And sometimes right up against the rock bulkhead feeding 15 feet away.  I’m sure there’s no guarantee when they’ll be around, but this was pretty cool, and contributed significantly to my sunburn.

    The grounds are well kept, as is the pool and two gas grills.  All the residents seemed to respect the place.  The stainless steel grills were clean and we picked up on the unwritten rule, wire brush the grill when you’re done so it’s clean for the next user.  We bought some inch thick pork chops at Costco and they turned out to be about as tender as I’ve ever had.  Low setting flipped three times, around 20 minutes total.

    I’ll also throw in an unsolicited plug for Beach Bums, a restaurant about a 5 minute walk away at the harbor.  We ate there a lot.  Fish tacos, BBQ ribs, prime rib, all good.

     

    The condo’s AC worked great.  We didn’t use it much during the day, only a bit at night (used to 70 F at night).  During the day, opening the doors, and the kitchen window really kept the place nice.  Maalaea can be windy, and this is a good thing, as you don’t feel the humidity with the breeze flowing through the condo.  That also kept us acclimated to the outside air temp as we spent a fair amount of time on the lanai and out sightseeing.

     

    We walked down the road to the beach almost every day.  I’d recommend wearing sandals or flip flops through the park as there are thorns from the local trees on the ground.  Once on the beach no problem.  My brother and I walked almost every day about 2 miles down this beach toward Sugar Beach.  This put the finishing touches on my sunburn.

    All in all, no complaints.  We will stay here again, and I will recommend this to friends.  This is a nice place, respect it.

    With aloha,

  • A Home Away from Home

    Maui is a beautiful island to visit and this property definitely put you on island time.  The unit is very clean and nicely decorated.  You will feel like you are staying in your own home.  The common areas – the ground, pool and gas grills – are very clean. We saw the maintenance folks cleaning daily.

    It is centrally located providing easy access to Kahului, Lahaina, and Kihei with beautiful views of the ocean and mountain Haleakala.  It is a short walk to the beginning of the 4-mile long beach running along the town of Kihei and steps away from the Maalaea Wharf and Harbor.

    I would stay here again on future visits to Maui.

  • A Great Place to Rent in Maui

    We have stayed at Maalaea previously and love the area.  Very central and easy to get to all parts of the island if you have a car.

    We came in one of the hottest months (September) and made use of the air conditioning.  Closer to Christmas we would have gotten by with the trade winds blowing through the apartment.  But for us we were becalmed!  No trade winds!

    The apartment is well maintained and fitted out with modern appliances. The bed is fantastic.  A great sleep is a plus on a holiday and there were no problems sleeping at all.  The apartment is very close to one of the elevators and the laundry (which is very handy).  The appliances made it feel like home—we enjoy cooking where we stay and did not want for any utensils, pots, etc.

    The bottom line is….. would we stay here again?  In a heartbeat!

  • Amazing Place to Stay on an Absolutely Gorgeous Island

    Howard was prompt and thorough with his communications with us. The condo was exactly as he described and perfect for two couples as we each had our own en-suite bathroom. The full kitchen enabled us to eat at home for 80% of our meals.  The master has a safe in the closet. The guest room has a cooler, beach towels, chairs, snorkels/masks for use thus saving valuable suitcase space.

    The crashing waves are a mere 50′ from the balcony and we enjoyed the daily surfers. The condo is in the perfect spot away from the noisy tourists but close enough to everything. The gas BBQs are new and the pool is cleaned daily. Amazing place to stay on an absolutely gorgeous island.  ALOHA – Go and Enjoy!

  • Fabulous Condo!!!

    What a fabulous condo you own!

    My family and I had a wonderful time staying at your beautiful condo, which we found out was in one of the best complexes in the area, with a breathtaking view of the ocean!

     

    We loved the landscaping surrounding the condo, and the complex’s swimming pool was amazing!!  Our 3 year old wanted to be in the pool 24-7!  We enjoyed a good amount of time by the pool at the patio.  Also, the condo was decorated beautifully and had all the amenities that we needed and so much more (i.e. rice cooker, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels and toys).  We so much look forward to our next visit to Maui, and if your condo is available, we’d love to stay there again and we would definitely recommend your condo to our friends and family.

    Thank you!!

  • You Must Say at This Condo!!!!

    We were extremely happy with the beautiful condo and the immaculately kept grounds.  We brought friends who had never been to any of the islands and what an incredible impression it left for them.  We will definitely return and hopefully Howard’s condo will be available to stay at again.

     

    Everything in the fully stocked condo to the abundant plush bath towels, we felt right at home and enjoyed the ocean breezes that flowed through the home.  Howard was most helpful and accommodating to our needs for a late check out. Check this place out, you will not be disappointed!!!

  • No Better Place to Relax

    My wife and I were privileged to stay in this condo during a ten day trip to Maui.  It could not have been more outstanding.  Everything about the unit was exactly as promised. It was comfortable, beautiful and provided everything we needed for our stay. The setting is outstanding if you want a quiet place away from all of the hustle and bustle of the resort.  One of the things that we enjoyed was the fact that we were minutes away from anything we wanted on the West Beach, the South Beach and the North Shore, but when we were finished, we could escape back to a quiet place for relaxation and sun.

     

    Maalaea is a perfect little Village.  There is an outstanding aquarium, a few excellent places to eat and a small shopping center area.  We were able to walk to an outstanding place for snorkeling and whale watching excursions.  The thing that my wife enjoyed the most during the season we were there was that we could sit on the lanai in the mornings and evenings and watch the whales who took advantage of the bay during migration.  We had a perfect Hawaiian vacation.  I could not rate this rental opportunity more highly.
