This is a wonderful complex of two buildings. It has unobstructed fews of the ocean and is also a short walk over a lawn to get to the ocean. The pool and bbq areas are always well maintained as are all of the grounds. There are handy laundry rooms in the complex as well. If you have not visited Maui... More

As our first VRBO, the accommodations at this unit have set the standard very high. I am almost hesitant to write such a great review as this place was phenomenal and reasonably priced! When dealing with the owners, I found them to be very courteous, accommodating and have great attention to detail, ensuring that guests feel very welcome to their... More

What a wonderful find! I did quite a bit of research to find the perfect place for us to stay while we were in Maui. I was looking for an ocean view at a reasonable price in a nice setting. I was a little hesitant about booking through the owner and not an established company, but what a delightful place!... More

The apartment complex seems a bit older, however our unit had a brand new bathroom...very pretty. It is just seconds away from the beach. The pool area was nice and clean with a hot jacuzzi. There is also a great BBQ area with several-easy to use gas grills. We enjoyed it there a lot.

What a great set up at the condo with perfect location and views as well as appointments necessary to enjoy our week - the fact that this was a penthouse unit closest to the water only enhanced the experience. This is a two-bedroom, two bath unit nicely laid out. Easy access from and to airport - maybe 15 minutes. Everything... More

We rented directly through the owners for this unit and have loved it! We only have a couple days left of our 10 day Maui vacation and we are so sad to leave. The condo is well stocked with everything you will need. We bought groceries but will have to leave quite a bit for the next guests. The condo... More

Without doubt we will go again, centrally located. Lot of couples we met were spending 4 to 5 bens a night. Unnecessary just need a place to... More

We were able to get a great deal on our condo room #222 through orbitz which was awesome being a young couple on a budget. Even though the views from the lanai wern't spectacular being on the second floor, we spent most of our time doing outside activities and by the beach. The value of the condo was amazing for... More

Dear future guest, I am sharing my experience with this owner. This was the reply I received, after inquiring about a quote for my trip with my 14 year old son. Not booking for a teenager group vacation, just a father son trip (returning travelers in this complex). Here it is the reply: "Dear XXXXXX, My condo is not child... More
