The other reviews were correct! The pictures didnt do it justice! The condo is HUGE! Wonderful view too. We walked to the grocery store that was across the street (better prices than safeway too) and purchased breakfast to make in our fully equipped kitchen! Had our breakfast on the balcony almost every morning. The only thing the kitchen was missing was some pepper!! haha So we bought some and left it there!! All the beach items; chairs, mats, boogie boards and ice chests made our day trips so much easier. Made it feel like a real home! The snorkeling right out front was also really good-lots of coral, sea urchins and fish! Quick drive down to Black Rock were the sea turtles which a guy would be feeding from time to time around 3 ish-but dont touch the turtles even if the guy feding them does! Steve even called and checked in on us the day we arrived to make sure everything was satisfactory! Another couple that arrived 2 days after us were quite jealous of our condo compared to their efficiency! Very comfortable!
Location of the condo was great-quieter beach but a 2 minute drive to whalers village and you got the shopping, restaurants and busier beach in front of the Sheraton/HIlton/Hyatt. Then a 5-8 minute drive to Lahaina for a strip of shops, restaurants, bars, art exhibits and the beautiful banyan tree-a must see. It's also where a lot of the boat trips leave from and or surfing lessons. Cheeseburger in Paradise-ate there twice!
Found a secret snorkel spot (Honolu'a Bay) really close too!! take north hwy 30, about 1/2 a mile past marker 32 you will see a metal gate down in a wash. Park there, walk around the gate through the trees. Black rock beach with roosters and cats (it is somebodies property but he alllows use for travelers-dont forget to leave a tip in the tip box) Thats where I saw my first turtles and other AMAZING fish, octopus and coral. There is another secret snorkel spot I believe around mile marker 30-you will be able to see this one-more room for cars to park with stairs that take you down to a nice cove of almost white sand beach.
I could go on and on! Nothing disapointed my husband and I while we stayed at Steve's condo so obviously I recommend it to couples, singles and families!
