This finely appointed and newly renovated oceanfront condo provides a comfortable oasis during your visit to Maui. See it on our website below. Enjoy a direct view of the ocean with stunning sunsets from your own private lanai. Or, barbecue fish on the nearby deck.

Located on a beautifully landscaped, quiet 52-unit 2-story complex, this upper-level townhouse condo is a short stroll to the pool and ocean.

With 2 bedrooms and two baths, this non-smoking condo comfortably sleeps 5. The lofted suite has a king bed, and the open style continues in the newly renovated kitchen.

About Joe Opray

Over the past 30 years living in Washington state, our family has enjoyed many trips to Maui: one of our favorite destinations. Whether on a romantic getaway, or a family vacation with our two sons, the breathtaking scenery and relaxed pace of the island has always resonated with us. We acquired this wonderful townhouse condo in February of 2011, after my retirement from a thriving dentistry practice. It was during a trip to Maui for our 30th wedding anniversary, when we decided to take a leap of faith and buy a condo in one of the most exotic and picturesque places on the planet - and we’re so glad we did.

We believe in “paying it forward”, and it’s been deeply rewarding for us to share this special place, where our guests can build memories of their own.

Joe Opray purchased this condo in 2011

Why Joe Opray chose Maui

Beyond the fact that the natural beauty of this area and its accessibility are amazing, we chose this location because of it's 'vibe'. This property is located just north of Kaanapali (a popular tourist area) and just south of Napili and Kapalua. It has close proximity to popular destinations, but remains far enough away to maintain a quiet atmosphere - perfect for those who are looking to escape the bustle.

Great and beautiful place to stay in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

Joe and Marilyn were the most wonderful, helpful, and gracious hosts! Everything was just as they said it was and the grounds are clean and very well maintained. Their condo is located in a perfect setting with an ocean view from the living room and lanai where we enjoyed our breakfast every morning overlooking the green lawn, swaying palm trees, and blue ocean. Most evenings, when we weren't out and about, we loved watching the beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed the comforts of home as the kitchen was fully equipped for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The new hair dryers and the bedroom vanity in the downstairs bedroom came in handy. Our beds were comfy and we all slept to the sounds of the ocean and cool breezes. The fans and open windows along with the cool breezes outside were sufficient to keep us cool as the weather never went above 84 degrees and the nights were around 70-72 degrees. The intermittent mild rain was pretty cool as well.

We visited Maui for a wedding at Olowalu Plantation along with our 3 grown children. We all felt at home and quickly got acquainted with the northwest side of the island thanks to the mounds of information Joe provided us prior to our stay. One of our favorite and fun things to do at the condo was to go out and watch and video all the big and amazing turtles that swim and sun on the rocks and beach. What a treat! The pool was nice and a quiet place to read also. We visited quite a few beaches that Joe recommended and all were awesome! We love seafood so we treated ourselves to dinners at Mama's Fish House and Duke's. We also loved the Farmers Market, only a 10 minute walk from condo, Dolly's Pub for pizza, fish tacos from The Fish House, take-out at Okazuya, burgers at Cool Cat's on Front Street (where we shopped a few times), and breakfast at the Gazebo! Walking the Kapalua Trail was beautiful and the scenery breathtaking! We had a wonderful time!

Thank you, Joe and Marilyn, for such a memorable trip! We hope we can visit again in the future! We will certainly recommend your condo to our family and friends!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks at VRBO/Home Away property #180612. I was a bit nervous committing to stay two weeks at a place we've never stayed before. It was wonderful, and we'd definitely book this property again. It has the ambience of a friendly neighborhood, and in fact there are people who return every year to the same location. We met some people who book the same condo during their current stay, for the next year. There is a couple who stays 3 months every year! And others who stay 3 - 4 weeks every year. That says a lot for the property. The onsite property manager, Jeff, is friendly & helpful. The condo owner provided the most thorough, detailed, and helpful information I've ever received from a rental property. The location is just north of Lahaina - we easily walked & jogged to Kaanapali Beach regularly. An easy walk to the Farmer's Market Deli, Maui Massage & Wellness, the Fish Market, ABC Market, among others. Two close grocery stores: The Times and Safeway. This property is close to awesome surfing, snorkeling, and swimming. On the property you can watch sea turtles that swim right next to the shoreline. People paddle board daily. We visited March 3 - March 17. The first week we saw whales all day long, breaching, flipping their fins and tails. AMAZING SUNSETS! The second week friends joined us, they stayed in the 2nd bedroom - it worked out great for us. There is plenty of room for 2 couples. There are 3 grills next to the pool, accessible for anyone who wants to utilize the grill. The night after we arrived there was a Pu Pu party for interested guests - we each brought an appetizer and BYOB, someone pulled picnic tables together, there were 2 people with ukele's - it was a lot of fun! And a great way to meet the other guests. We spent some time hanging out by the pool, a couple hours would fly by as you spent time talking with people. It was a super nice group of people staying at the property, another reason I wouldn't hesitate to rent here again. The location is close to some fabulous beaches - we drove north a few times and watched the amazing surfers who regularly surf on the other side of Honolua Bay (great for snorkeling). If you're staying on the west side of Maui, this is an ideal location. Anytime I e-mailed a question (before/during our stay), the owner promptly responded and is friendly, courteous, couldn't be more helpful. Maholo!

I would not stay anywhere else on Maui

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this property in 21 months...over Christmas this time, our first ever Christmas away from home.

I could go on forever about this place. You know when you read the owners' blurb "selling" their property and you think to yourself, "yeah, right, it can't be THAT good!"? In this case, it is. And then some.

It's obvious that Joe & Marilyn are in love with their home in paradise because they do their utmost to make sure you love it too, right from booking stage to arrival and beyond. The condo is comfortable and well-equipped - it's great that there are beach chairs and snorkel equipment and we enjoy that the kitchen has every bit of equipment you could need plus those little things you need once or twice - Ziploc bags, tin foil etc. Our family includes three kids of 14, 13 and 11 and it is plenty big enough for us...and my son said he found the Tommy Bahama sofa bed to be extremely comfortable. That's rare and appreciated (we end up using lots of sofa and foldaway beds).

The surrounding resort has a very intimate feel. We spent lots of time at the little sandy beach by the condo and we saw turtles every day swimming around there. The kids love the pool. I enjoy just sitting on the lanai or the lawn and just looking at the view, which again this time included watching whales. It's just a magical spot. And it's great value. Trust me, I've researched this: you simply will not find anything comparable in West Maui for the money.

Thank you again, Joe & Marilyn. See you in 2017!
