Located in beautiful West Maui, 'The Pikake' is located directly on the ocean. You will have fantastic, unobstructed views of the Islands of Lanai and Molokai. This is the very best place to be for those spectacular Hawaii sunsets. This is an ideal location for whale-watching (Dec-Mar), turtle-watching, swimming, snorkeling, boogie-boarding, etc. There is a coral reef just a little off-shore which makes the beach calm enough for children to play.
Our kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need to whip up a fantastic meal, or just a casual snack. There's a grocery store just a short walk away. There is also a laundry room right on the grounds with washers and dryers available for your use.
We have wireless internet, if you want to bring your laptop.
Absolutely beautiful! You will want to make this Condo your home away from home.
Activities: There are brochures and pamphlets located in the laundry room. These activities include: Mountain-Biking Down a volcano, Horseback Riding, Para-Sailing, Surfing instruction, Snorkeling tours, Dolphin tours, Kayaking, Jet Skiing, Sunset Cruises, Helicopter tours into the Rain Forest, Drive to Hana, etc.
Dinning Out: There are so many fantastic Restaurants in Maui.
There are menus & brochures in the laundry room for every restaurant on Maui. From $ to $$$$
Some of our favorites: Longhi's, Kimo's, David Paul's, Roy's, Maui Brewing Co (Fish & Game), Kobe's
favorite breakfast: The Gazebo at Napili Shores. Beautiful view of Napili Bay and the best Macadamia nut pancakes you'll ever have, guaranteed! Try 'em with their famous coconut syrup and a glass of POG (Passion, Orange, Guava juice) yum. My husband loves their omelets but tell 'em light on the cheese, they can really cheese it up.
Beaches: We have a beautiful Beach just 20 steps away, but there are many famous beaches close by. I like to valet my car at the Sheraton Black Rock and go snorkeling. You can rent lounge chairs & umbrellas or a cabana from the Beach Rental Shack. If you eat lunch at their fabulous outdoor grill restaurant they will validate your valet stub.
Napili Bay. Park at the Seahouse Restaurant and walk down the stairs to another beautiful beach. Just across from the Gazebo.
I had rented both the upper and lower units for my family during the end of September and what a lovely time we had. The weather was gorgeous on this side of the island, and from my understanding it generally is better on the west side rather than the east. I am particularly fond of sunsets instead of sunrises which makes this unit ideal. Because the two units are located right on the beach, it was wonderful to watch the sunset paint the sky with so many different colors.
What sold me was the direct access to our own private beach which makes it so easy to pack and play for our 2 year old daughter. No need to haul a bag with clothes and food for the day, nor did we have to contest with overcrowded parking and beach space. For the most part, my family had the privilege to enjoy the whole beach to ourselves.
In addition to this, every day there would be sea turtles lingering near by eating off the rocks and coming to shore to take a rest and soak up the sun. It was so awesome to see them come to shore or swim beside you - I had one swim so close to me he/she touched my foot with its flipper.
The units themselves offer everything you possibly need such as snorkel gear and binoculars. There was nothing that we lacked while we were there. Beautiful location and wonderful time. Would I go again, most definitely.
We had a wonderful time staying at this one bedroom apartment that is literally right on the ocean .. we even had a couple of giant sea turtles swim in our back yard while we were there.
Everything was as described and everything was clean.
We will definitely come back !
This was a very good place to stay, and I think that we got a good value, but there were several issues with this place that made it less than perfect. All in all, a four star review is fair in my opinion.
+Waterfront, waterfront, waterfront
+ Nice location next to many places.
+Neighbors were all very nice.
+There were tons of turtles in the water directly in front of the condo. Very cool.
- Construction was happening next door. Although this is not the fault of the owner, it definitely detracted from the property. Jackhammering and excavation would start at 7:00 AM and didn’t end until the afternoon. You would be forced to close up all the windows (without AC) or deal with the noise. Hopefully they will be done in the near future.
- The condo had some signs of wear. Some examples of deterioration included rips in the curtains and a non functioning living room fan.
- The Wi-Fi signal was rather weak and did not work well in the bedroom.
- The owner’s email response time was pretty slow and/or sometimes non-existent. Texting appeared to be the best way to get a prompt response from her.
I have loved the West side of Maui and have preferred to stay up on the Napili shore. I have found a new favorite! It is perfect for my little family. July is awesome and so helpful. We will be back no doubt about it!!!
We really enjoyed staying here. The condo was clean and provided everything we needed during our stay. The best part was being able to wake up and jump right in the water. The neighbors were very friendly. The location is perfect, near the farmers market and Honokowai Beach Park (great location for snorkeling). My favorite part about the trip was swimming with the turtles and whale watching from the lanai. I would definitely recommend July's condo and will be staying here again in the future. Thank you July for sharing this piece of paradise!!
This was our first trip to Maui and we were in total awe of the fantastic view! We had a wonderful time and to have the beach only 20 steps away was amazing. From the turtles to the beautiful sunsets it was very hard for us to leave after 3 weeks. July and Charlie made us feel so welcome and almost like a part of the family. We were in walking distance to an organic market, coffee shop, ABC store, bike rentals and more. We didn't have to travel too far for anything if we didn't want to. Totally recommend this place and we can't wait to make a return trip!
We are just a little North of Ka'anapali. The town is called Honokowai. We are so close to everything! 10 minutes from Olde Lahaina Town to the South and 10 minutes from Kapalua to the North. You will love this location as much as we do. It took us 8 years to find it, and boy are we glad we did!
