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 is costantly updated. For 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. We continue to make important improvements for our guests' enjoyment. 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

Beautiful condo in Maui with spectacular view of the Haleakala

  • 5 of 5
Love the condo. It has everything anyone would need while visiting Maui. Beautiful view of Haleakala from the living room and bedroom. The condo is very well equipped with nice up to date kitchen. We had our breakfast every day here. We even cook 2 dinners here. It also has washer/dryer which is very convenient after a day at the each. Frank is also very nice. He called before we left home to tell us about a broken microwave. He also sent a very nice inclusive information package for our trip. Absolutely love it. We'll definitely recommend it to our friends.

Owner's Response: Since we purchased this condo in 1993, we continue to make upgrades. The new microwave broke recently and it is being repaired by Samsung. All the windows have been replaced. Our cleaning people have been with us for 5 years and do an excellent job. The windows and screens are washed every 30 days, and we have an excellent handy man who fixes anything that breaks. We also have our condo managed by a fine, on-island, management company, Bello Realty, Inc. in case of emergencies, etc. After 21 years managing this condo, we do not leave anything to chance!

Ahoha Frank,

When we first got to condo and opened the door and saw the view from the lanai it was breath taking. We literally dropped our bags and went straight out to the lanai to see the view. WOW The condo was very clean and had everything you would need. We had great sunrises and sunsets, cool ocean breezes with sea turtles to great you every morning! We spent every morning enjoying the lanai and really missed it when we went home. The condo is very centrally located on the island and there are many beaches to snorkel or swim that are not too far away. We recommend the snorkeling cruises in the Maalaea Harbor close to the condo. It was amazing! Very easy access to the airport which was very nice after a long flight. We would recommend your condo at Milowai it was our home away from home. We definitely will come back! Thank you for taking good care of us, Frank.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time. We just got back ourselves from Maui, and we made a number of improvements, especially on the lanai. All the furniture has been reupholstered. New lights and microwave were added to the kitchen. The lanai sliding door and windows were replaced with new windows this week. We keep doing upgrades to make the condo feel nicer in addition to the wonderful views and location. Aloha!

Spent our first trip to Hawaii for our Birthdays and would definitely recommend Frank and Brian's "slice of heaven" to stay at. The pictures of the place are very accurate. We found it be clean and suited our needs. Enjoyed the mornings and time before supper watching the turtles and whales from the lanai, the view was amazing and you can't get much closer!! Recommend the helicopter tour through Mauii Helicopters. We ate most of our meals at the condo, Costco and Safeway were convenient! Can't wait to go back again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful and accurate review. We do consider 107 Milowai our home away from home since we visit every year. We continue to make changes and improvements to the condo. For instance, this year we are changing all the windows on the lanai and re-upholstering the couch and chairs. Above all the wonderful features of our condo, it is the view of the ocean, the volcano and the islands that are outstanding along with the sound of the ocean everywhere in the condo. We think our condo may be one of the closest to the ocean on the island (both bedroom and livingroom), and it certainly has a large, open floor plan which is NOT usually the case for most one-bedrooms.

Thank you so very much for giving us a taste of your wonderful condo! My wife and I have been to maui before, but have never exprienced anything like this before! The views as you first walk in almost buckle your knees!! We were in awe watching the turtles and whales breaching right in front of our eyes! No kidding, whales breaching just beyond the wave break! The condo itself was big for a one bedroom. The pictures on the web site do not give it justice. The instructions you gave us were perfect and easy to follow and everything went great! My wife and I did not want to leave, but all great things come to an end for now. My wife and I will be back for sure in the near future! Thiis is a diamond in the rough!! A big mahalo from us, mark and barb

Beautiful Maui

  • 4 of 5
Beautiful views, very clean, and very quiet except for the expected lapping of water on the shore line. The condo building is not new or "modern" if that is what you are looking for but we found it to be delightful. Everything was as advertised. We enjoyed our stay very much. The owner was also a pleasure to work with and very responsive. We would recommend this unit to friends and family.

Owner's Response: We continue to make upgrades and improvements to our condo. Our proximity to the ocean is hard to beat. The condo building was built in 1979; condos are no longer allowed to be built 40 feet from the ocean. Most new condo buildings are approximately 100 yards from the nearest body of water. The condo building is well-maintained and in excellent working order. The grounds are also well maintained.

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.
