About Mike & Stephanie Jeffers
We are Mike and Stephanie Jeffers, and we live in Carefree, AZ with our 2 daughters. When we first visited Maui together almost 10 years ago, we fell in love with Maalaea Bay and began dreaming of owning a place here one day. After years of determination, hard work, and planning, we were finally able to turn this dream into a reality in October 2018. Our condo's name, Crew Rest Maui, comes from our family’s deep history in the world of aviation. Mike is a pilot, both in the Air National Guard and for Southwest Airlines, and several generations before him were aviators as well. The term “crew rest” refers to the appropriate downtime and rest required for a pilot to fly safely, and we like to think that our condo and this beautiful location on Maui provide that kind of relaxation and rejuvenation to everyone who stays here.

Why Mike & Stephanie Jeffers chose Maalaea
We fell in love with Maui the very first time we visited. This condo is a dream come true for us, and we treat it as a true labor of love. When you visit, you will see and feel the level of quality and comfort we strive to deliver. We have invested in new furniture, decor, household goods, etc to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. We've been staying in VRBO properties for years, and we understand the little touches that mean so much to guests. We've worked hard to incorporate those things into our unit to provide a superior vacation experience!
What makes this Condo unique
Our unit is VERY unique because of its location in the Kanai a Nalu complex. Our unit is one of the few corner units, which provide unique features that other units don't. One, you only have one shared wall, and in our unit BOTH bedrooms have ocean views. Be aware that in the majority of units in KAN, the second bedroom faces the parking lot. Two, the front door of our unit is at the end of the hall, with zero traffic in front of it. In Maalaea, you will enjoy leaving the front and back doors open to let the tradewinds blow through the unit thanks to the screen doors. But in most units, there's constant traffic in front of your door, with people peeping in. Our unit is at the end of the hall, meaning there's no traffic in front of your door. Three, our unit features unobstructed ocean views from the entire kitchen and living area. Depending on location, many units in the complex face towards the pool area or even other buildings. Look through our photos and you'll realize we have a superior view. You can literally see Molokini from the sofa and watch surfers while you load the dishwasher! You're traveling to Maui--get the best view possible!

Family of 5 stay in Maalaea Maui
Our family of 5 with 3 teenagers really enjoyed our stay at the property, especially the beds even the hide away bed. They were comfortable and allowed great night sleep except for the birds outside on a few mornings. The location is great if you’re looking for a quiet central location to go north, south or to the airport area. The condo was nicely decorated and modern with a few nice touches. The 3 individual zones A/C at night was great to cool things down at bedtime especially with the birds outside in the morning. When we visited, the fridge was pretty well stocked with condiments but we purchased 2 sets of snorkel gear and left them behind. The pool was heated and warm and the ocean waves were just feet from the lanai.
Central location. Clean and comfortable. Oceanfront.
This condo is in the perfect location. We drove over 600 miles in 8 days visiting various beaches/landmarks and because of its central location, we still managed to spend the mornings on the lanai and evenings at the BBQ.
Although all units in this complex have an ocean-view, there is something special about having direct oceanfront. We loved hearing the sounds of the ocean at night and watching the waves crash against the seawall at high tide.
We were grateful to have A/C during the evenings that were extra muggy because it took the humidity out of the air, but on the nights that were more dry, it was nice to open up the windows to feel the trade winds.
My kids thoroughly enjoyed the heated pool. You would think that a non-heated pool would be sufficient given the climate, but it would have been chilly in the morning or evening without the heating element.
It was so nice to have a washer/dryer in the unit. I will never stay anywhere that doesn’t have this as an option (who wants to waste vacation time in a community laundry room)?
The sofa mattress was very comfortable, the kitchen was well-equipped, and the condo is at the end of a hallway and on a dead-end street, which makes the unit feel safe and quiet.
Stephanie was proactive in communicating and responded quickly to our questions. You won’t regret your choice to stay here and we hope to be back sooner than later!
Everything we needed for an awesome stay! Literally on the beach! Very responsive owners
Stephanie was excellent with communication, responded to my questions quickly & thoroughly. Unit itself was clean & very well kept, new AC & other amenities as advertised. Vacationed here with 3 teenagers, and was enough room for all of us. The sofa sleeper was super comfy, too (again, as advertised)! We had everything we needed & enjoyed our stay so much! Overall property is older construction, and needed to hop in the car to get to most places, but centrally located on the island, which is a plus. Loved our ocean view & hearing the waves crashing right outside our balcony...definitely worth the price, as you cannot get this close to the ocean staying in a traditional hotel without paying an outrageous amount for it. Enjoyed walking on the beach, but had to time it if coming straight from the unit, as it's tricky when it's high tide, since property is so close to the water. There is a long stretch of beach adjacent to the property, but the beach immediately in front of unit is not ideal for play or snorkeling...amazing for enjoying the view. If you go further down the beach a bit, there is more sandy beach area for play...it's literally steps away. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We loved it!
Fabulous ocean front location. Very clean and owners flexible and easy to work with. Would definitely stay again.
A great stay central to all of Maui
Crew Rest Maui at the Kanai a Nalu Condos in Ma’alaea was the perfect choice for our first trip to Maui. We were centrally located to both West and South Maui and all of the other activities we wanted to do on the island. The area was quiet and peaceful, yet had several restaurants and shops at the harbor within walking distance. We were on the island with other family members who also stayed at Kanai a Nalu, and all agreed that our unit was the best of the three. From the tasteful decor, to the waterfront lanai, to the split A/C, we were very happy with our stay. If you are considering Maui and aren’t sure if you should stay west or south, this is the perfect spot in between, and Crew Rest was the perfect unit! We hope to return someday!
Property was amazing! The view was beyond words perfect! Rent a car because there is only so much you can do in that area, but still very nice. Uncrowded and beautiful. The owners are very responsive to any message and made the stay so comfortable for my husband and I.
