Our Spring Break at the Maui Penthouse
This condo (it's actually not fair to call it a condo) is absolutely spectacular. The view from the lanai is exactly as it appears in the photos. We spent every moment we could out on the lanai. There are lots of seating options on the lanai, plus a hammock and your own jacuzzi.
The condo is well furnished (no cheap furniture here), and bright and airy. There were five of us and there was plenty of room. Frankly, we could have easily brought 10 or more. There are 3 beds (one is somewhat unconventional and out on the lanai in a storage area), and at least 4 or 5 blow up mattresses. Our 9 and 11 year old boys loved sleeping on the 3rd bed in the storage area, though the last 4 nights they simply slept outside on the patio furniture. I did as well one night and love it. Falling asleep while listening to the ocean is truly special.
It's hard to describe how well-equipped this condo is. Beautiful Weber gas grill and well equipped kitchen to use. I cooked many meals while we were there. Many boogie boards, snorkel sets, beach chairs, umbrella, etc., and they're all available for your use. There's literally a storage shed filled with beach gear. There's a gate that you enter the lanai through so that you don't bring all the sand, etc., into the house, and an outdoor shower to rinse off with. None of these are 'communal'. There are exclusively for your use as a guest of the unit. Gayle has really thought of everything and she makes you feel very welcome. She goes out of her way to ensure your stay is great.
I'm torn over writing such a glowing review because I'd really love to keep this Maui gem to myself so I can reserve it when I want to! We will absolutely be back. We're already talking about when we can go back. We had a fabulous family vacation and the place we chose to stay at played a VERY part.
