About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Maui...what a great place for a vacation and especially the Village of Ma'alaea! Check our calendar and come on over.

Relax oceanfront with temperatures in the 80's, trade winds blowing and the lanai chairs waiting for you. If you are awake just before the sun rises, you can see the turtle heads bobbing up for air....right from the lanai!

Our one bedroom, one bath, second floor condo has a magnificent and panoramic ocean view. One of the few places in Ma'alaea, where you can hear the sound of the waves as you sit on the lanai. You will have a hard time moving from the lounge chair on the lanai, to discover the Island's many gems. I've felt this way for many years and now I live on Maui!

If you don't see the dates you want available on my calendar, please contact me. I also help friends rent their condos and can probably find you an oceanfront condo for your stay.

We have covered, assigned parking and there is an elevator and carts in the building to help you move your luggage and groceries to and from the condo with ease.

Our location is so central to everything, you may want to do on your visit to Maui. After your day's sightseeing, you can come back to a swim in the pool or barbecue on the outside grills.

At the end of our dead-end road, you will find a 5-mile white sandy beach that is the longest walking beach on Maui. Since it is only accessible from our road, you will find it all to yourself many days. The beach adjoins a bird sanctuary and you will be treated to all kinds of rare birds unique to Hawaii. We also have a small sandy kiddie beach right in front of the condo.

The kitchen is fully equipped. The bathroom is clean and comfortable, and has ample linens.

The bedroom has plantation shutters and a ceiling fan to keep you cool. The comfortable bed will help you get a good night sleep, after your day of exploration.

Ask us about the 2-bedroom condos we have available for only $130 - $140/nt.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place had everything you could ask for and more. The sound of the waves outside made every second relaxing. The pool was very nice to hang out at after a long day of adventuring.

Barbara, Thank you so much for renting us your condo. We spent 5 wonderful days there, and I have to say we loved every moment. When we first pulled up to the building we both kinda thought 'oh, oh' but when we opened the door, we both started jumping around with excitement. The lanai and view were amazing. The fouton wasn't the best, but I insisted on sleeping there so I could fall asleep to the sound of the waves every night (I put the mattress on the floor). I got up every morning and sat on the comfortable lanai lounge chair and wrote in my journal as the sun rose. The condo was very well stocked - there was nothing we wanted that you didn't have. The BBQ and pool area were great too. After we arrived there, we found your Maui Revealed book and in it is warned against staying in Ma'alaea...why, I don't know. It's centrally loacted, and I liked feeling away from it all, unlike all the other touristy towns on the island. We took day trips each day -2 to the South Coast, one to the NW side and Iao valley, and one day to Hana. I hightly recommend the drive to Hana, it's absolutely amazing. We ate twice at the restaurant downstairs - DELICIOUS food, excellent service and amazing view. Again, thanks so much for making my vacation a wonderful one. I definately want to return to your condo one day.

Fantastic Condo in Maalaea

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed with Barbara for about the last 10 years now and won't stay anyplace else on Maui. We stay for 2 months each year and love the condo, location, and working with Barbara. It's definitely our home away from home and we look forward to ending our winters here every year. Everything you need is in the condo and if not, let Barbara know and she's quick to help you out. My husband and I highly recommend this condo if you want a beautiful, quiet, condo on Maui. You're in the middle of the Island, so close to Walmart and Costco, etc., also Lahaina, and Kihei.

Mahalo Barb, for the welcome aloha basket-so thoughtful! We love the condo and the view from the lanai. Of course, Milowai is our home away from home. There was nothing we needed that you haven't already thought of. The furnishings are delightful with the bright island colors from the pictures on the wall to the towels and the dishes. My favorite thing is the cool, white furnishings in the bedroom. Love the calm and lovely white and green.

Almost ruined our vacation.

  • 1 of 5

My wife and I arrived at this unit in the evening, which was a good thing. The darkness definitely aided in hiding the true appearance of this unit. Having such success with VRBO units in the past, we were shocked at what the sunrise showed us. There was mold around the refrigerator. The bathroom was disgusting. We had to cover the furniture with sheets to sit on it. We even went so far as to start cleaning it ourselves. When we finally reached the owner, she sent one of her people over and did not have the decency to stop by when she was in the building. There is definitely no pride of ownership nor any regard for the people that spend their hard-earned vacation money here. We saved for two years to celebrate Christmas in Maui amongst some other milestones in our lives. Unfortunately the were overshadowed by filth and grime. I caution you to rent this unit and say shame to the lady that offers it.

Owner's Response: Aloha, so sorry this guest felt their vacation was almost ruined but some clarifying facts need to be stated. First, the owner was not in Maui but lives on the mainland and is a gentleman who was not in the building while these guests were here so there was no owner neglect. Second, If the condo was "filth and grime' why was there no mention of this to the two contact people and three telephone numbers provided until 4 days before the guests were leaving and not immediately after the first morning sunrise. We do take pride in making sure all guests have a great experience on Maui including the cleanliness of the condo, however if we are not notified of any dissatisfaction, we can't immediately assess the problem and correct any situation. Third, upon notice of a perceived problem there was an offer of a solution which was rejected. The contact person went to the condo to assess the situation and was told by the guest that they put sheets over the furniture so they wouldn't get any suntan oil on the furniture...never that it was too dirty to sit on. It was also never mentioned there was a refund of the cleaning fee....even though it was hard to determine what it might have looked like when they arrived since so much time had passed. This guest could have also been moved immediately to another condo so as not to 'almost ruin a vacation'. We take great pride in providing a great experience for all guests and will take care of any concern....if we are aware of it.

Barbara, we had a great time at the condo! The welcome basket with the coffee and bread was very nice, especially since we got to Maui at 11:00 PM. The ocean sounds, the views were all very nice. And I must say the unit is well equipped...thanks we had a great time.
