My husband, 11 yr old son and I stayed for 10 days at 205 Milowai and it could not have been any better. This was a one bedroom (queen bed) condo with an additional queen size pull out sofa. Barbara, the owner, gave us great information and advise before we arrived and it all proved to be very useful and beneficial. It was great to have a washer and dryer handy right in the apartment. The wifi proved to be reliable. The apartment was not "fancy" (afraid to actually live in it), but was very clean, well supplied and wonderfully comfortable. On our arrival, we found banana bread, a pineapple and kona coffee that Barbara had left us as a welcome to Maui gift. Very sweet.
There were also plenty of beach toys available for our use. Buckets and shovels for the kids, sand chairs for us, boogie boards, flippers, etc. It was a great treat that made our beach time even better.
Maalaea is a bit off the beaten path, so it's the best area on the island to relax. It is not invaded by hoards of tourists underfoot. It's quiet and very low key. Every morning, I was able to sit out on the lanai with my coffee and watch the humpback whales frolicking in the bay right in front of me.
The location is perfect, central, with an easy drive to Lahaina or Kehei (which we liked). If we ever return, it would seem silly to stay anywhere else. We really lucked out with this one.
