Three-minute walk to the beach!

This was my first trip to Maui, hopefully with more to come. Staying at this condo made the trip very relaxing and enjoyable. Upon our arrival, there was chilled filtered water waiting in the 'fridge -- a welcome sight for weary travelers. It was also great being able to buy fresh food and cook in our own kitchen. I loved that it's an end-unit (on the left side as you're facing the building) -- lots of light since there are windows on all three sides. It's also very spacious -- we had four adults and it never felt crowded. The view of the beach is inhibited only by a thin palm tree, so the ocean is always visible. The walk to the beach literally takes about 3 minutes, depending on your pace and how long it takes to cross Kihei Road. The beach across the street is very private -- I saw at most 5 people every time we went over. There's a daily farmer's market about a 5 minute drive up Kihei road (walkable along the beach if you prefer), and a daily craft fair about 5 minutes the other direction, where we found fresh coconut, beautiful hand-made jewelry, and incredibly wonderful local crafts-people. And when you want to leave the car in the parking lot, try the Maui Bus to get around the island -- $2 to ride all day! In sum, I think if you want peace and quiet, off the beaten path (in a good way :-) and great proximity to shops, food, and beach (did I mention it's 3 minutes away? :-), this condo is a must. Thanks for reading!
