Beautiful accommodations would recommend the condo to all my family and friends. Their condo had everything you would need away from home. The welcome gift in the fridge absolutely perfect. The condo was a very quiet setting with quick access to the beach. The morning walks on the beach made my stay so peaceful and relaxing. I could go on and on. All I can say is the perfect condo for your stay on the island of Maui!
Our family of 3 just had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful condo. It is spacious, very clean, nicely furnished and has everything that is needed for a good time. The complex is located on a quiet street and right next to the beach. Beautiful view from lanai. Great big clean pool. Complex is small and most if the time there were just the 3 of us in the pool.
Walking distance from Ocean Center, nice restaurants and shops at the Maalea village. You can also book tours there. Easy access to freeway and great location to explore an island.
Amazing contrast to crowded Kihei and Lahaina, but just as comfortable and 10 minutes away from both. 10-15 minutes from grocery stores and Tropical Plantation with its farm stand where you can by fresh papaya and pineapples as well as vegetables and eggs.
Phil and Cris were very attentive, they sent us instructions on how to get to condo and how to go around and called about 1 day before the arrival to check if we are all set. They even left some food in the fridge when we said that we were arriving late at night.
If I ever go to Maui again, I will try to book this apartment again.
We loved staying at this beautiful condo. As this was our first family vacation via plane, I was a bit nervous to ensure we had everything we needed for the kid. Phil and Cris were amazing in letting us borrow toys and a lifejacket for him. The condo was more than well-equipped, and so appreciated, down to the laundry quarters and nail clippers. The condo itself absolutely gets 5 stars.
Everything else I'd rate at a 4 stars:
The location is central to the island, which is nice for day-trips, but is kind of hard if you just want to go down the street for food or to the grocery store, there's only 1 sit-down restaurant. We planned a simple menu ahead of time and cooked most of our meals at the condo.
There is a beach park next door, it was never too busy or noisy while we were there. There's enough sand space to build castles, but it's not an expansive beach. The waves were too big for our little dude (4yo) most of the time, and the wind can pick up quite a bit. It's the best beach on the island to take a long walk down.
The condo community is very quiet, or was when we were there. The pool was surprisingly unheated, so we didn't use it much.
Bottom line - this is a good place to just go hang out near the beach with a book.
The condo is just 10s of feet from the beach and nearly everything, except Hana, is within a reasonable drive. This condo was immaculate, everything you need to live comfortably, like your own home. We were amazed with all of the little details that Cris and Phil included: shampoo, beach toys/towels, and much, much more! We were absolutely blown away with the personalized card and goodies they left us too. I can't wait to come back and stay in their condo again!
Dear Phil and Cris,
Thank you so very much for a fabulous two weeks in your condo. It felt just like home. You have it stocked so thoroughly and thoughtfully we didn’t want for anything. We were even able to host local family visitors with no problem. We really appreciated how caring you were checking in on us during the local flooding and road closures too! We were sad this time next year is already booked, but I’m sure we’ll return soon.
Stayed in Cris and Phil's condo last October and had such an amazing time that we stated we would be back. Never thought we would be back a year later. We wanted to come back so much sooner that thought due to the amazing accommodations at this rental. You cannot beat the hospitality and service from Phil and Cris. They have thought of everything and are there for their renters. Cris checked in with us to make sure we were ready to arrive and if we needed anything. She also called again the night before we left to see how the trip was and to remind us of how to close up the condo. The POG juice and breakfast items were very delicious and appreciated after the long day of travel. Same as before we loved the beach chairs, coolers, and fins which were used everyday at the different beaches we went to. I recommend this rental to everyone I can get to listen to me rave about it.

My vacation rental was pretty last minute. I saw this place on here years ago and was sad it's not available often, but now I know why! Phil and Cris couldn't have mad our stay better. They were the most respectful owners/renters I have ever met. They called the day before our departure to make sure we didn't have any questions. They offered advice on what to pack and told us what would be there provided for us. From shampoo and conditioner, aloe, sea turtle molded soaps, hand and dish soap, bathing and beach towels, goggles for the ocean with flippers and boogie boards, a cooler, beach chairs, every appliance you could imagine with printed directions in the kitchen, and laundry soap if you wish to wash clothes before leaving, to postcards with a photo from their backyard beach as well as beautiful artwork throughout, a comfy bed with lots of extra blankets and plenty of space. The icing on the cake was arriving after a very long flight (13 hours) and having a fresh pineapple, Danishes, coffee, creamer island chocolates, water and POG juice (a Hawaiian delight) left in the refrigerator to greet you so that you can just run off to the beach without having to worry about breakfast. Phil and Cris made our stay so wonderful we are considering making Maui a home away from home until we can relocate there for good. My husband opened the lanai door at a bad time and didn't close it quickly enough and a few mosquitos got in. I let the Peacocks know and they were there as soon as possible (with my permission which they asked for respectfully) to inspect Windows and make sure we didn't have a leak. They also kindly brought over bug spray for us and a fogger for outside because this isn't usually a problem. I figure we are on an island, there will be bugs and never expected this much fuss over a few mosquitos but they insisted to make sure we were happy with our stay. They are the kindest people and very caring. They also called once we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed and to make sure we didn't have any questions. They also recommended the best shows and restaurants and even how to find lower cost activities so we could enjoy our stay without breaking the bank. We met them for lunch our last day there and they couldn't have been friendlier. They told us all about their moving to Maui story and made our dreams seem realistic to relocate there. We are so happy to have found them, as our friends paid a similar price and were very disappointed with their landlord- (their owners showed up unannounced and walked in to check on the place while they were in bed as well as told them they had a known problem with their air leaking). The Peacocks would have none of this. They only came with our consent and when I told this to them, they both looked at me funny and said "well then they should fix it." Which seems to be what I would think is normal as well. Everything in their property worked well and I know if I had a complaint, they would address it immediately. Their air worked very well and kept us very cool on the hottest days. Such simple but lovely touches made this place truly feel like home. I want to recommend this place to everyone I know, but I sure hope there is a slot for me to rent again because I will surely be coming back here!
