Most central and convenient location on Maui - 15 minutes drive to the airport, 30 minutes to Lahaina/Kaanapali, and 30 minutes to Wailea/Makena. Take a stroll on one of the longest beaches in Maui - just a short walk away. The Maui Ocean Center/Aquarium, snorkel tours, fishing trips, restaurants, gift shops, and shuttle service are in walking distance as well.
Fifty feet of windows and an open floor plan provide amazing panoramic ocean views - even from your bed and shower. This is a spacious, one bedroom, two bath, newly remodeled Condominium that can sleep up to four. The penthouse suite has a pull-out dividing wall for privacy if you travel with four guests. This fourth floor unit offers great whale watching when in season and a full view of majestic Haleakala Mountain. The granite and marble throughout adds a luxurious touch. It would be the ideal place to enjoy your honeymoon, anniversary, any other special occasion or simply a well deserved vacation.
We were given ten days at this WONDERFUL penthouse. It was so much more than we could have hoped for. It contained everything that we might need. The kitchen was fully equipped and the furniture was so beautiful especially the dining room table.
The view was wonderful. I was told by a friend how wonderful it was but It is beyond belief. The view from the balcony at sunrise and sunset is breath taking. I hope to visit there again many times in the future.
Andreas suggested many wonderful activities to us. We had always heard that Maui was heaven and now we know that the penthouse is where it is.
Livin at the beach in South Carolina, I thought we had the best but after our vacation I would recommend the penthouse and the beaches at Maui.
Above all, I was attracted by the spectacular views of the “Oceanfront Penthouse” and next by the luxuriousness of the interior decoration - I love discovering owners who strive to impart character, charm and comfort, in addition to practicality and convenience, into their vacation rentals. Andreas Romer is such a one.
First of all, the location was convenient to shopping, tour boat departures and the fascinating Maui Ocean Center. The tour book “Maui Reveled” even recommends Maalaea as a great location for those wanting to explore the island in depth.
As for the penthouse itself, it was impeccably clean and tastefully appointed and we felt we were in the lap of luxury. The living room sofas were very comfortable with plenty of pillows for relaxing after the day’s activities and the large flat screen TV and Internet service were very satisfactory. The king sized bed was great and it was truly wonderful to fall asleep and awaken to the sound of the ocean waves lapping the shoreline and to the feel of tropical breezes bringing with them the purest air in the world.
The kitchen has plenty of pots, pans, utensils, dishes, silverware, etc. all of excellent quality and just about everything else you might need for dining in, including cloth place mats and napkins. If you do find anything missing, Andreas will get it for you. We mentioned that an apron for cooking would be nice, and the next day there was one for each of us! There were also a few basics like salt, olive oil, butter and spices as well as some refreshments in the refrigerator – rare finds in a vacation rental!
We also kept the two beach chairs and the beach towels provided in the trunk of our rent-a-car during our stay so we were always ready for a stop at any beach we chose to explore – the swimming was wonderful! We also hiked to fantastic waterfalls along the Road to Hana and visited the Haleakala Volcano. (The in-house washer/dryer kept the towels and hiking clothes ready for daily service!).
We usually had breakfast and dinner out on the lanai and in the evenings we delighted in the colors of the sunset and later we’d watch the moon rise over the water. There is also a beautiful dinning room table with seating for six inside if you have company.
We have stayed at many nice places but none were cared for with Andreas’ attention to detail and no owner has shown more commitment to making sure we had everything we needed and that we were enjoying our stay. We'll definitely be back!
This gorgeous penthouse is a five-star luxury property in all respects. We spent eleven January nights in this beautifully appointed fourth-floor one-bedroom condo situated squarely on the oceanfront, revelling in eye-popping 180-degree-plus views of Ma’alaea Bay, Molokini Islet, the Kihei shoreline, and the majestic backdrop of 10,000 foot Mount Haleakala. Frisky humpback whales were a near-continuous presence, and a contingent of local green turtles regularly paddled in with the late afternoon high tide. While dining on fresh seafood on the spacious lanai, we were treated to nightly moonrises over Haleakala while being warmed by ocean breezes and serenaded by the soothing (and sleep-inducing) rhythm of breaking surf. Andreas was a gracious and knowledgeable host who showed genuine interest in our comfort. We wanted for absolutely nothing during our visit. The Ma’alaea village – showcasing a couple of first-rate restaurants plus a marina -- is situated no more than a five-minute stroll from the building, with the local beach park similarly close at hand in the opposite direction. The shopping malls of Kahului (Whole Foods is best for groceries), the residential and resort districts of Kihei and Wailea-Makena, the Ka’apalani coast and the Haleakala summit are all readily accessible from Ma’alaea by car – and a visit to the truly paradisiacal Hana can be managed in a day-trip (although we would advise an overnight stay, as the return Hana Highway drive can be a trifle stressful if ventured in a single day). Altogether this penthouse ranked among the best and most memorable vacation rentals we have experienced over many years of travel. Thank you for your generous hospitality, Andreas. We hope to return in the very near future.
The view is jaw-dropping, and you really can watch whales spouting from just about any spot in this luxurious condo. The amenities are perfect, the kitchen is well appointed, and the decor is unique and personalized. We would definitely return, whenever we come to Maui. We loved the restaurants within walking distance, and the snorkel trips from the harbor... so several days we didn't even get in our car. But when we did, we drove to Hana and around that remote part of Maui, which is a stunning contrast.
It doesn't get any better. This penthouse has it all, location, beautifully appointed, well equipped and spotless. Fabulous views and the sound of crashing waves...awesome.
We just returned from our third stay here and can't wait to return. Andreas and Stephanie are fabulous hosts. This is a 5 star +++
As amazing as it sounds, this property is even better then the pictures! We spent an amazing two weeks relaxing and enjoying the condo and surrounding area and couldn't be happier with our choice. Andreas made the whole experience easy and the care and attention they put in is obvious. If you're looking for something that goes beyond the ordinary Maui condo experience, this is the place to stay. Our thanks for a great stay.
