Great place to stay in Maui

Stayed: May 2013
My wife and I (along with our almost-2-year-old son) just finished up our one-week stay here. Simply put, it was wonderful. The view was great...one of the best parts of each day was having dinner out on the lanai. In case you are wondering, I can verify that the condo looks exactly as it does in the photos on this site. We cooked a lot of our meals at the condo, usually using the on-site gas grills, which were very convenient.
The beach in front of the property was perfect for our little guy, with enough room to build sand castles, and surf that was calm enough that (after the first day or so) he was totally fine playing in the water. There was also an area about 100 yards down the beach that was sheltered a bit, so during low tide it served as sort of a shallow pool in the ocean.
Yes, the condo is not in one of the main towns, but we loved the centralized location, and found that it was very easy to get to other parts of the island.
The only real negative I can think of (and it really wasn't that big of a deal) is that we just so happened to be there while they were harvesting the nearby sugar cane fields. There was no burning, though, so it was just a matter of trucks running into the night. And apparently this only happens for one week every two years, so it's really not something most people will have to worry about. Most importantly, our little guy slept through it all anyway.
We will definitely look to stay here again on subsequent trips
