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 Lahaina
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Location, location, location! - the perfect home away from home
This condo served as the perfect home for my family of four including two 19-year-old children. The condo was clean and well-stocked with kitchen supplies as well as everything we needed for beach outings (snorkel gear, beach towels, coolers, chairs, a boogie board, and a beach umbrella). The owner goes above and beyond in providing recommendations regarding, activities, restaurants, and day trips. We didn't have a lot of time to plan due to some family emergencies before our trip so the owner's trip recommendations were priceless and helped us to make the most of our stay. He also quickly responded to questions. The condo is located in a beautiful, private setting. We walked to the nearby, quiet beach every day to watch the turtles swim. While many parts of Maui were busy, we always felt like we were away from it all. We cooked meals in the kitchen, used the grills in the common area, and enjoyed the nice pool. The grounds are well-maintained and the ocean views are pristine. Definitely the perfect place to relax and unwind. It was a 15-minute walk to a nearby outdoor farmer's market where we enjoyed coffee and purchased fresh fruits/veggies. Also a short drive to Lahaina. (Based on the owner's recommendation, we stopped at Costco near the airport when we arrived and stocked up on food. This is a good option if you are going to be there for at least a week. Otherwise, the Safeway near Lahaina is a good bet. Be sure to get the club card for savings.) Our favorite eateries - the Sea House for reasonably priced happy hour appetizers. And the Beach House Grill at the Sands of Kahana for lunch - large portions, delicious food, and a great view. Try the Monte Cristo sandwich. We would highly recommend this property. Thanks so much to our hosts!
Quiet condo on the ocean
The location was great. Not too far away from places but far enough away from people. The ocean view was wonderful and we enjoyed watching the sunsets nightly.
Beautiful, breathtaking and perfect location! So much more than what we expected!
First off, Joe and Marilyn are such wonderful people and made this whole process so easy and welcoming. Joe sent a welcome packet full of helpful information, places to see and do, beaches to try out, dining, etc. Joe gives so many helpful tips to make the trip easier. He is a life saver and told us to hit up the Costco right by the airport before going to the condo. We even picked up some souvenirs there too! Joe had a few of his favorites he provided information about and we booked in advance to go to Warren and Annebell’s magic show and it was awesome! I am so glad we went and watched this show in Maui! It’s a must see! Thank you Joe for all the helpful information!
The condo itself is beautiful and amazing! So much more than what we had anticipated! The grounds are picturesque and the views are breathtaking. We saw turtles everyday, snorkeled and saw exotic fish and played at the beach by the condo everyday! We saw the most beautiful perfect rainbow one morning drinking coffee on the lanai, saw a group of dolphins go by. We loved sitting on the lanai in the mornings and at night. Watching all the birds and listening to the ocean. It never got old! The pool is awesome and we swam in it everyday. We checked out a top rated beach nearby which of course was beautiful and nice but to be honest we liked the beach at the condo so much more and didn’t check out any other beaches. We enjoyed the little hike over to the beach everyday and would check out the turtles a long the way and the tide pools.
Joe has everything you need at the condo. The beds are so comfy and all the decor and finishings are so neat! We would love to go back to Maui someday and we are definitely going to stay at Joe and Marilyn’s condo! We had an amazing experience in Maui thank you Joe and Marilyn for sharing your amazing property!
Aloha Joe and Marilyn
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful condo! Owners have thought of everything and it was much appreciated! Scores of turtles, whales in the distance, sea urchins and crabs in the tidal pools.... even a snoozing/sunbathing turtle on the little beach! Walked to the farmers' market, enjoyed restaurants recommended, and the sights and sun of Maui! Sunsets to die for from the condo lanai and surf sounds in the quiet of the night! With suggestions from Joe, no need to run the air conditioning. Plenty of room for the four of us with everything provided! Thank you so much for letting us share your property! Mahalo!
Our Home Away From Home!
This was our third trip to Joe and Marilyn's lovely condo and I shared with them it is starting to feel like our home away from home.
The attention to detail, decor and comfort are top notch. There's snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers and all the amenities to make your stay a great one. I love the welcome packet that they have lovingly put together with maps and details about places to eat, best burgers, fine dining, snorkel, golf, luau you name it!
We are looking forward to our 4th trip back next year.
Mahalo Joe and Marilyn
Very spacious with great ocean view
This unit had everything you would need. It was spacious, and stocked with all your needs. Beautiful ocean view, pool was nice and people were friendly.
It rained the first 2 days that we were there, but it was nice sitting on the covered deck and enjoying the view. There was a couple of restaurants within walking distance
Whales, turtles & dolphins often seen from property, (Almost daily you are able to swim with turtles in front of our resort --'Better than Turtle Town' has been our guests responses).
