Maalaea Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Stunning ocean and volcano views distinguish this corner unit in the seaside village of Maalaea. The central location of Maalaea makes it the perfect spot to spend a vacation on Maui. Both living room and bedroom face the water with 25 feet of windows spanning both rooms. 107 Milowai is also 25% larger than the typical one bedroom due to its unique floor plan. This non-smoking condo has an elevated first floor location that is six feet above ground level from the living room and 10 feet above ground level from the bedroom windows - providing very close proximity to the ocean (literally 40 feet) with considerable privacy and panoramic ocean views.

The spectacular marine vista greets guests from both living room and bedroom; the warm, tropical colors of the condo complement the ocean setting. Breakfast on the lanai is a special treat as you watch the bay come alive with surfers, sail boats, snorkelers, and the occasional whale. Snorkel in your own backyard or stroll to a beach eight minutes down Hauoli Road. Grill fresh island fish at the barbecue while watching the Maui sunset.

2 HD TV's 50' in livingroom and 32' in bedroom with all HD programming and HBO. Record HD movies and shows in livingroom. Access your netflix account for download and the interenet with the smart TV in the livingroom. Use your ipod or MP3 player to play music on the Sony music station.

Our condo is professionally managed by Bello Realty, Inc., providing thorough cleanings and excellent customer service for the past 30 years.

See 'Links to more information' below to view our condominium website with rental calendar, map, floor plan and many more detailed photos of this condo.

Please note that we only accept payment by credit card. We not accept eCheck payments. Unlike many condo, owners we do not add the cleaning and management fees ($165) to the reservation price; we included these costs for all bookings of 7 nights or more. However, if you make a reservation of less than 7 nights, you will pay a pro-rated portion of the cleaning and management fees in addition to the nightly rate. Thank you.

This condo has improvements done regularly. In July of 2014, the 3 ceiling fans were replaced, the lanai chaise lounge was painted and re-strung, the lanai chairs were re-slung with a new semi-sheer fabric. The livingroom couch and chairs were re-upholstered with new fabric. A new microwave was installed above the stove and new lights were added above the kitchen sink. The lanai windows and sliding door were replaced in August, and a ceiling fan will be added to the lanai in the next few months. We continue to make important improvements for our guests' enjoyment. We also stay at this condo regularly, so we have a vested interest in keeping our vacation home in good working order. We have created a home that we enjoy immensely. Aloha!

About Frank Russo

In Nov. 1992 Brian made a down payment on our Maui condo with a convenience check from our credit card company. I could have killed him! 19 years later it has turned out to be a wonderful place that has given us so much pleasure throughout the years. We are amazed at how every time we arrive the stress of big city life evaporates with the first soft and fragrant, tropical breeze. The view we experience from our condo is un-matched anywhere on the island; we call it our 'forever view'.

Frank Russo purchased this condo in 1993

Why Frank Russo chose Maalaea

The location is so close to the ocean that you feel like you're on a yacht. And the view of the volcano and the bay is so beautiful that many guests just stay put and enjoy the view!

What makes this condo unique

You can hear and see the ocean from everywhere in the condo. The condo floor plan is very open with a 25-foot panoramic view through windows that stretch from the bedroom to the livingroom. Most one bedrooms feel like narrow caves with a view at the end. With 107 Milowai, you have your bedroom right on the water...where it should be! I built a partition for the bedroom with a large opening and shutters so that you can separate the bedroom from the livingroom if needed while leaving the shutters open during the day for that beautiful panoramic view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

[Here's another unedited email from guests who stayed at our condo in October.]Hi there Frank, Just wanted to extend my thanks again for sharing your condo with myself and family. We had a fantastic time; enjoyed every minute we spent there. Did a lot of local snorkling and beaching (as much as you can do with a 5 mth old) as well as morning yoga on the grass. You have invested in a beautiful property on a heavenly island and we look forward to visiting again in the future.

Just a little note that perhaps could be of some benefit to your future guests which we found could have helped us in our pre-visit grocery shopping. There are alot of the same condiments in the fridge and cupboards that were obviously purchased by previous guests unknowingly (ie: 3 containers of mayo, 2 containers of mustard, 2 sets of salt and pepper etc.). Aside from eliminating waste, hopefully this will help out guests in the future.

I've attached a few pictures from our time in Maalea (my husband C. and daughter N. watching the surfers and myself and N. on the lanai)

Once again Mahalo! Karen M. and Family

Aloha Frank,

Well, our two weeks here will soon be coming to a close and I must tell you how absolutely perfect your beautiful condo was for us.

I had wanted a quiet place to stay with a view and after looking at what seemed like a thousand condos for rent I was fortunate enough to find yours.

The amazing view, the sound of the surf to lull us to sleep every night......I simply cannot say enough!! Mahalo, mahalo, mahalo!

The condo was very well-equipped and clean and the immaculate grounds were an absolute delight. Being centrally located , we were easily able to enjoy the whole island on day trips. My helicopter tour of the island was awe-inspiring as were Haleakala and Hana.

I hope to return next year and have already recommended your condo to friends.

Cheers and aloha,

Victoria B.C. Canada

Owner's Response: Mahalo, Judy, we appreciate you taking the time to comment on our condo. People always tell us that our central location makes seeing the island very easy. Our condo is close to everything and yet is a very peaceful place to relax and enjoy the view. We recently replaced the vanity in the bathroom, and added a bar table with bar chairs so that people have an elevated view from the kitchen counter and the new table. We also added wireless internet and a new LCD TV for bedroom. Aloha, Frank

Frank, Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us! It was everything and more than we expected. The location was fantastic! We easily went anywhere on the island, but perfect that we also had the option of walking to the harbour and restaurants. Maui is breathtaking and listening to the waves every moment of the day and night was incredible! I am already starting to save for our next vacation and will be praying your condo is available for our next visit! Also, I want to thank you for being so responsive when we were booking our vacation. Since it was our first visit to Maui, of course we had a million questions and you were always very quick to respond and so gracious. Plus, I am a very detailed person and all of the information you provided for our stay was fantastic, everything from driving directions to details on the television. It was a perfect stay and loved it that I didn't feel the crowds of a tourist resort! We enjoyed our walks on the beach each morning and evening! We didn't want to leave! Thanks again for everything! Angie B.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience with future guests. We have enjoyed this condo so much over the years. 107 Milowai is truly a unique experience because the condo is so close to the water and the view so enchanting. On our last trip I spent many mornings just watching the sun rise over Haleakala and the sea turtles swim for food 50 feet away. After 22 years, my response is that I understand what you mean when you say you want to return. Please do, and we will make sure to offer you a competitive rate. Aloha!

Thank you so much for sharing your awesome condo! It is in a perfect, central location for easy access to anywhere and I love that it's somewhat secluded. So many places on the island are overwhelmingly touristy and it was so nice to be away from all of that.

The view is gorgeous, whether you're sitting out on the lanai or waking up to a beautiful sunrise in bed and the turtles were everywhere! I was especially excited to be able to watch whales breaching and slapping their fins in the bay straight out from the lanai!

I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend it for anyone who wants a homey, private, non-resort-like place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks Angela. I agree that it is not like many resort locations. The first time we went to Maui in 1988 we stayed at a faux-waterfall, tiki-torch-like resort in Kaanapali. I hated it so much that I made Brian cancel the rest of our stay and we went to 107 Milowai three days earlier than we were supposed to. Hurray! It was just what I imagined staying in Hawaii would be like....a beautiful garden setting with tremendous views. We had a great trip and on our next stay at the end of 1992, we purchased the condo. Please come back. Aloha!

This condo had everything you could ever require. It was within walking distance of the harbour (whale watching, snorkelling/scuba, coffee shop, bar, restaurant) and within 15 minutes of Kihei, 30 minutes of Lahina, and a million beach spots in between. The lenai was exceptional as the ocean was 40 feet away - listening to the waves through the picture window screens while sleeping was unbelievable. We watched whales, turtles and boats while sipping our coffee on the beautiful grounds in front. We would surely come back to this home away from home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and your review really describes what makes our condo a great vacation spot. We were there in December for 11 nights, and we had a great time. The whales hadn't arrived yet, but the turtles were there every morning and evening. The sunrises over Haleakala volcano were magnificent. I am always amazed at how much I enjoy our place after all these years, and everything you mentioned is exactly why we enjoyed it so much. We ate in restaurants near Maalaea Harbor and lots of places in Kihei. It was so easy getting around, and we always looked forward to getting home and sitting on the lanai to watch the view and everything going on. We are making some more improvements to the condo this year; we are committed to keeping this a wonderful place to stay. Aloha and mahalo. Please return.

Fabulous Month

  • 5 of 5

Aloha, We were so lucky to have found your home and what a joy making it our home for a month. It is a perfect location to go anywhere on the island which we did quite often. What a wonderful surprise to watch the turtles and whales while sitting on the lanai, that we did every day. Your condo had everything that anyone would ever need while visiting. It had been several years since we were on Maui and the information you emailed to us before our trip was perfect. Thank you for opening up your home and sharing this wonderful condo with us. We loved the "Beach Bums" as it was just a walk away and we could enjoy our drinks and some good food. We went to Lahaina and Kiehi often as well as the Pacific Whale Foundation for many cruises. This was a trip we won't forget and have some wonderful pictures to share. We loved everything! Mahalo!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Rich & Jean: We have been renting 107 Milowai since 1993 and over the years have made many improvements. We also have an excellent cleaning crew, window washer, handyman and management company. All these components make for a wonderful experience; not much is left to chance. And if there is an issue, we can get someone out there to fix it very quickly. We stay at this condo approximately 8 weeks per year; it is our home away from home. We are constantly taking care of it and doing the types of tasks that owners would do for their own property. We want our guests to have a quality stay, and of course the condo has a wonderful location both on the Island of Maui and in the condo building itself. We are close to all major activities and the building is right next to the water, yet it is still private and relatively quiet. We encourage our guests to return and give bigger discounts to regularly returning guests. This condo has also been very successful because of its incredible 120-degree panoramic view of Maalaea Bay and Haleakala volcano, clearly visible from both the bedroom and living room. Guests find themselves having a wonderful experience because of the of the condo's location and view coupled with a very well maintained and equipped condo. The combination is unbeatable! Please come back. Mahalo!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

The only word that should be used to describe 2888 is "Perfect". Perfect location, perfect condo, perfect weather, perfect scenery. This unit has everything and anything youj want or need to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable in every way. The views from the lanai and the sound of the surf make this a relaxing place to be. The location enabled us to see the entire island of Maui in great comfort. We will definitely return.

The 50' TV can be used to access downloadable TV shows and movies through Oceanic Cable. You can also record movies for later viewing using the 100+ digital channels and HBO. NO DVD player. You may setup the TV for internet access by editing the Wifi configuration using the Wifi settings provided at the condo. Then, you can download movies through your own personal Netflix account or access movies on Hulu through the Internet. I did not use these features myself since there are lots of HD movies to record on cable and HBO.
