Why Dolores Smith chose Maui

Before we purchased this property we had been staying at hotels in Kaanapali Beach , and then we decided to try a condo so we could prepare our own meals. What a surprise we had with our rental at the Valley Isle Resort. Not only was the view spectacular compared with the hotel's but we were directly on the beach with the constant sound of the surf.Before we checked out of our rental that first time we purchased our 8th floor unit.

What makes this condo unique

Best view on Maui - two neighbor islands, Maui sunsets and whales in season.

the ocean front was wonderful. A little disappointed because of beach erosion. No beach

  • 4 of 5

Working with the owner Dolores Smith was wonderful. The condo is a little outdated has everything you need. Fully stocked kitchen, cable tv and wifi. We stopped by Costco and enjoyed breakfast on the lanai almost every morning. There is a sports bar directly across the street that has great pizza and a great happy hour. McDonalds is just around the corner for lunch on the go.

Can't go wrong!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at condo #807 for a week, May 18-25, 2016 and it was fantastic. Dolores is very kind and helpful. Basic bathroom and kitchen amenities but everything you could need. Big comfy bed which is right next to the lanai so we slept with the door open every night and listened to the waves. The lanai is AMAZING. Plenty of room for 2 and just above the palm trees so you have a 180 degree unobstructed view (can see all of Molokai and most of Lanai'i). The front door has a screen door too that locks, so much of the time while we were in the condo we left the front door open (with the screen door locked at night) and the lanai door open which created a nice funnel through the condo. The trades were blowing pretty much constantly so we had a nice cool room to sleep in every night.

Only one downside to our trip: The beach was eroded quite a bit this year and as a result the grass/beach on our property was unusable the entire time. It was a bit noisy as they had a back hoe working all day moving around huge sandbags; this all started the day we arrived so we could not use that half of the property. Luckily the beach runs from Valley Isle south for about 500 yards and its perfect! Great for swimming/snorkeling/paddleboarding. We also saw a TON of turtles. If we were on the first few floors it would have been a nightmare, but for us a minor inconvenience.... Construction supposed to last 3 weeks.

We would definitely recommend this unit. Great location, great unit, great owner. We will definitely be going back!

Right on the beach !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just retuned from a 3 week stay .. if you enjoy waking up to rainbows from the lanai and amazing sunsets this is the perfect condo for you! We watch whales everyday from the lanai and walked down the beach to a small cove to watch sea turtles swim in the ocean. The beach was never crowded, most of the time only about a dozen people . Dolores has everything in the kitchen to cook a full meal with including muffin tins and cookie sheets ! The sound of the surf all day and night was so relaxing , while laying in bed it was like you were floating in the middle of the ocean. The 2 elevators were so fast , we were never waiting at any time . We have been to Hawaii several times and was our first time renting Dolores condo... best condo we have ever rented, better than any 5 star resort. Dolores was a dream to work with , It was everything she said it was going to be and more ! Thank you again Dolores ,for making our vacation at your condo the best time in Maui ever ! We will be renting from you again and every time from now on! P .Surman from Michigan

Great home base with lovely beach view

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely visit to Maui and this condo was a great home base for us as we explored all parts of the island. The views really are as good as they look in the photos here. Sunsets from the lanai each day were a favorite part. Condo is right on the beach and the sound of the surf is great to fall asleep to. Beach is small and not crowded which we liked. Condo is as pictures reveal. Good size for two adults, perhaps a small child or two as well. Whole building was very clean. Dolores was great to deal with. If you're looking for a place to stay while you take day trips, enjoy being mostly outside, this is a great, great spot!

The view alone warrants the 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. After visiting Kona and Honolulu, Maui is easily our favorite spot. The pool is nice, the BBQ's were clean and new and the beach was not crowded with ok snorkeling. We did the road to Hana and were in Lahaina for several excursions including 2 whale watch tours and 2 scuba dives. We spent every minute we could on the balcony watching the whales play.Thank you Dolores for being so good to deal with. If we can swing it, we will be back.

Excellent view, Great place for a Maui vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in October to find unseasonably warm temps. There is no A/C in this unit but we found that exceptional airflow can be achieved by opening both the door (had a screen door) and the lanai. This unit is all about the view. Just an extraordinary view across the ocean to the neighboring islands. You could sit on the Lanai all day and just drink it in. Very nice to have a kitchen to produce some of our own meals and save a few bucks. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Brian for submitting your review. It is so important to me that my guests enjoy everything about the studio. The view is magnificent, some guests have said it is the best on Maui. I hope you will return in the near future. Dolores
