The condo headline states beautiful one bedroom, one bathroom. Well, it's a studio not a one bedroom. I specifically screened out all studios because it doesn't work for our sleep patterns and I don't like sleeping in the kitchen. The last line of the description does say a bed in the living room, but I thought that was an extra since the bold letters at the top said ONE BEDROOM. Hugely disappointed but too late now.
My wife and I recently stayed here for a full week, in November 2017. It was our 1st time renting a condo, rather than staying at a hotel. We loved it and would do it again in a heartbeat.
Great communication with the owner Thomas, through the entire process. Checking in was a breeze, with no issues. The condo itself was very clean and up to date with all the amenities of home. Stove, refrigerator, microwave, washer, dryer, cable tv, chairs and umbrella for the beach, etc.. Location was great and close to many many different beaches, restaurants, shopping and other sights. So many beaches, so little time. Just a 7-10 minute drive into Lahaina. Balcony had beautiful ocean views and we loved sitting out there enjoying our beverages, just looking at the beautiful scenery.
We would stay here again without hesitation and so should you.
We booked this condo thru the owners, Tom and Vera as my hubby works with Vera and so glad we did! We arrived on July 26th and had to go home on Aug.1st as hubby had to be back to work the next day! You can bet we will return again in the future. For the size of this condo (on the 9th floor) it was amazing; perfectly laid out, had everything you could want or need. There is a grocery store just a couple miles away, many restaurants close by (I will review those under restaurants). The view from the condo on the deck is gorgeous. The beach below was quite small so we just went next door where it was a bit larger. The only drawback in my opinion was that it is quite a distance from the airport in Kahului and since it's basically a 2 lane highway to the condo most of the way and I was most anxious to get there, it seemed like forever with all the traffic (took 45 min.) so you need to take that into consideration going back to the airport; other than that we loved it!
Great ocean view! Ate most of our meals from the lanai. Saw turtles nearly every morning. AC and washer/dryer in the condo were very appreciated! The condo was well stocked with amenities needed to make our vacation enjoyable. Thomas was easy to communicate with and prompt in responding to us. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us for 2 weeks!
*Overall we found the building a bit loud/noisy compared with other locations that we have stayed at in Maui, but this is no fault of the condo owner. However, we have given this location a 4-star rating because of this.
We just returned from 10 days in Maui and stayed at this amazing condo. It is exactly like the picture. Up to date and clean. Lots of amenities- washer and dryer, coffee maker, full fridge and stove which was great for making breakfast and dinners at home.
The back pack beach chairs were awesome!
The view- just gorgeous!! I sat on the lanai every morning and evening and watched the whales play in the ocean. Breathtaking.
The beach right in front of the resort has been washed away and the staff was busy working on the retaining wall with sandbags and such. That being said there is beach access right next door so it's not an issue at all. Hardly worth mentioning :)
Also we went to different beaches each day - so many beaches!!
The location is perfect. Close enough to town but far enough away to have peace and quiet. We slept with the lanai door open and the sound of the waves lulled me to sleep each night.
I would go back in heart beat and would recommend to anyone to stay at Tom and Vera's lovely condo.

We were very pleased with the cleanliness and decor of the condo. We were able to watch the whales from the lanai. The location is great only 7 miles to Lahaina. Plenty of eateries from Kahana to Lahaina. Aloha Mixed Plate and Fleetwood's was our favorite. The condo was comfortable. Loved having a washer/dryer in the condo. Great place to stay. Thanks for making available your condo as a vacation rental.
