This was our first trip to Maui. Trying to weed through all the listings to find just the right spot is a challenge, but I tell you this condo is PERFECT! It is pretty much centrally located, the community is quiet and hospitable, and the condo is very well kept and has everything one would need to feel at home. There is conveniences within walking distance and nothing seemed to be too far away...even Hana.
Although we just missed the whale season, we were entertained nightly by a group of sea turtles that had moved in. Ma'aelea Harbor is a 5 - 10 minute walk, convenient if you want to go out on a snorkel charter or sunset cruise. Ziplining is an adventure that one should experience at least once and we did the Skyline/Eco Adventures in Haleakala. If you're looking for a dinner out and a sunset, dining in Lahaina or at the Whaler's Village in Kaanapali is lovely. And although you are there to see the sites of the island, nothing beats the down time. Kicking back on the lanai, listening to the waves, and watching the sunrise or set is just awesome.
Ken and Lori are very helpful and accommodating. We really appreciate them opening up their second home for our well overdue vacation. Thank you. :-)
