We enjoyed our first stay (last November) at The Fish Condo so much that we could not wait for a return trip; and this one was even more enjoyable since our first morning began with a whale sighting/"show" (blows, breach, & flukes) from the lanai. This was a real treat as our stay was at the end of their season in Maui.
Situated between the Kaanapali and Kapalua resort areas, this extremely well-appointed and maintained condo is the perfect holiday getaway location. Anything that you might need or want (including beach-going paraphernalia) has been thought of and provided by its owners and Rose, their onsite housekeeper. The furnishings are charming and extremely comfortable, and the ceiling fans in each room provide excellent, additional air circulation and cooling. The lanai provides wonderful unobstructed views of the beach, ocean, and sunsets (of course).
Outside, not only does this modest-sized complex have an ocean-front pool and jacuzzi which are surrounded by a lush lawn and garden, it has access to a lovely, small, sandy, swimming beach which, when they come up to sun, the sea turtles do not mind sharing. There is also excellent snorkeling to be had as well.
What we particularly relish about The Fish Condo is that it provides a quiet, near-fully-self-contained Oasis away from the crowds, hubbub, and traffic of so many of the other options; yet it is within easy walking or cycling distance of shops, and within easy driving distance of other beaches, golf courses, restaurants, shops, sights, etc. Actually, with all of the comforts and amenities provided by The Fish Condo, itself, and the complex as a whole, you really never have to leave in order to have a truly FANTASTIC holiday! We are already looking forward to planning our next visit.
So, once again, many, many thanks to Linda, Rose, et al. Or rather, Mahalo!
