July & Charlie Benson, Owners.

July Benson purchased this condo in 2004

We had been traveling to Maui for several years after honeymooning there in 1994.

We looked and looked for years, and finally found the perfect place in West Maui. There is no nicer property on the west side.

  • 5 of 5
Not much to say that hasn't been said, beautiful property in a beautiful location at a very fair price. I Was in Maui for a weeding and all my friends and were jealous of our condo, most were staying in time shares and big resorts and wanted to spend all there time at our place, swimming in the ocean and eating on our lanai. Thanks July.

SENSATIONAL, JUST BOOK IT NOW.

  • 5 of 5
Hello:
My husband and I stayed at this property from March 10 to the 22nd. We wish we did not have to leave. I am not sure where to even start. I will say that arriving and opening the door, I thought I might cry with delight. You could here the waves and feel the ocean breeze through the open windows. What a welcome! We immediately ripped off our socks and shoes, opened the back door and literally walked the 20 or so feet to the ocean. It is hard to belive when you see the pictures, but indeed, that is how close it was. This was the best part of the condo. There is no describing the delight felt every single day sitting out on the lanai watching the whales, turtles, rainbows, boats etc. As I sit at my desk, my blood pressure goes down just thinking of it.
A couple of things to be aware of: on our first night, because of the time change, we did wake up early and hear a few cars passing on the road. I had a small niggle at the back of my brain that this might bother us the next night, but belive me, it did not. The sun, surf, good food and beauty has you sleeping like a baby in the nice confortable king size bed. I only say it so that people are aware that you are near a road, but it is not heavy traffic, nor does it impair your visit at all. In fact, you leave your front door, walk down the road 3 minutes and find the perfect strip mall with a lovely market, art store, mexican food store, coffee shop and surf shop(all recommended). Further down the road, and within easy walking distance is fish store(fabulous), pizza place(very good), ABC etc etc. This condo is in the perfect location!! We loved this spot more than any other place we visited on the island and we did a great deal of exploring in 10 days.
The condo is not perfect, there are a couple of things that need attending to, but it felt exactly like my home! July is aware of them and is working on getting them fixed. My point in saying this, is that this is THE MOST COMFORTABLE spot I have ever rented. Everything, the sofa, the bed, etc are comfortable and clean. Nothing is pretty to look at but not functional. I hate when you see a piece of furnture and it is gorgeous but then you sit on it and it feels like torture. Everything in the condo is pretty and comfortable. We felt like we were at home and wished it were ours.
There is not one reason I would say not to book this condo and a million reasons to say 'book it'. We adored our stay and will be going back.

SLICE OF PARADISE! WORTH TWICE THE PRICE!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about our stay. Very comfortable condo and the perfect location. Actually rented the 1 bedroom and the 2 bedroom directly above. Worked perfectly for our extended family vacation. July was a joy to work with and the condo was well outfitted. We watched whales from the lanai and turtles playing in the water right in front of us. In fact 2 turtles beached for a short time during our stay. And there is a county park just one complex over.

We stayed at the Pikake 3 years ago on our honeymoon. I was worried that the pictures were deceptive. Not in the least. This is a small complex just steps from the water.

Thank you for a great stay and wonderful memories!

I WISH YOU WEREN'T READING THIS

I say that because the Pikake is a little piece of paradise I wish few people would know about. Yet, July Benson's hospitality and generosity really leave me no choice but to return the favor to her by leaving my feedback about our wonderful stay at her condo.

1. It really is oceanfront. In fact, as you'll have already read by now, it doesn't get any more oceanfront than this, as the ground floor unit patio ("lanai" in hawaii) has sliding doors - that work very smoothly by the way - that open right up to a beautifully-manicured small lawn area, and a couple more steps takes you right to a private beach.

2. The Pikake has a private beach. The beach is shared by other tenants at the Pikake and neighbors from the condo complex nextdoor, but it was hardly ever used during our stay. I was told by other residents there in summer months the ocean level is a bit higher, which turned out great for us, since we had a full 15 ft or so of beach length during our winter stay there. At high tide the water came up close to the seawall but otherwise you had at least 6-10 ft of dry sand you can lay on. We checked out other condos nearby and it's a gem in the Honokowai area to have a private beach.

3. It has a wonderful patio area. My favorite part of the stay was probably the patio, as I really enjoyed sitting in the lanai in the mornings reading and sipping on kona coffee, while listening to the ocean waves and enjoying the cool sea breeze. Sounds nice, doesn't it? It is. Beyond the semi-private lanai is that small well-groomed lawn that adds a touch of class to the Pikake, as each unit has exactly two reclining beach chairs and a small table inviting you to sunbathe once the sun breaks over the east side of the building around 10/11am.

4. The aquatic life. You can't beat the fact that during our mid-Dec stay we had big sea turtles hanging out on the private beach for up to 12 hours at a time in order to sunbathe and get away from the water. You also can't beat watching the most beautiful and colorful sunset, while you can see huge humpback whales off in the distance blowing air and arching their backs out of the water. Finally, snorkeling in your own "backyard" included seeing all sorts of colorful fish and even swimming with 2 turtles!

5. July and her cleaning lady Denise do a wonderful job of keeping the place spic 'n span. July provides you with everything you need: cooler, binoculars, & other little details.

Can't wait to go back.

LOVED THE UNIT!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent 8 wonderful days at this condo. We loved it! The listing pictures looked so inviting, and the photos didn't lie. It is nicely decorated and equipped, and very clean. The view is absolutely breathtaking! The sunsets are fantastic! The beach is steps from the lanai, and we watched turtles swimming in very close to the shore every day. The grounds were in perfect shape and very beautiful. The laundry room was handy and clean as well.We enjoyed the fact that it was a smaller building and very quiet, private, and peaceful. It is in a very good location, with beaches, shops, and restaurants in easy walking distance. July was very helpful and easy to contact, answering our questions and giving helpful information. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! I would highly recommend this unit to anyone making the trip to Maui. Thank you July for sharing your property with us. I hope to return one day!

WONDERFUL 55TH ANNIVERSARY

  • 5 of 5
We just spent two weeks in this wonderful property and our only comment in July's guestbook was "see you next year"!!! There was everything in the unit that you would need and what can you say about how close the water was? Our daily visits by the sea turtles, the passing of the whales and the evening blowing of the conch shells at sundown are lasting memories too.... What a great bunch of people we met and fortunately there was a good organizer in the crowd so we enjoyed a pot luck and two Pupu parties... Pikake is special because of it's intimacy... no huge crowds to deal with and you don't have to walk far to get your feet wet... visits to the farmers market kept us in fresh veggies and fruit and the local fish market is worth a visit not only for bringing fish back to grill but also for their fish tacos.. Don't pass up a chance to visit The Gazebo at Napili Shores for their pancakes either.. Just sorry we didn't find this place sooner...
