Why Melissa Meeker chose Maui

Best value Ocean Front.

What makes this condo unique

The ocean view and the gentle trade wind breeze.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Our stay here was everything you promised!!! We felt blessed by the rainbows, the whale sightings, the sea turtles, and crabs who came so close we could watch them from the lanai!!!

The tours we took up the North coast and on around the island to the South most point provided magnificent photo ops yet got us back before dark.

What a joy this has been!!!

No need to look anywhere else-fabulous condo!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous condo! We absolutely loved your place, Melissa! You were so great to work with as I had many questions and you were very helpful. Your place felt like home, it was so cozy and comfortable with your decorations, wonderful bed and nice linens & towel. Your extras that you provide also came in handy, we used the boogy boards, the chairs, beach towels and coolers every day. We loved that we could make our meals in the kitchen, but also had several places nearby to eat at also. The location was great, you're able to get on the bus 1 block away that took us to Lahinia and Kaanapali Beach area and then came back to a nice and peaceful place where you can sit and hear the waves of the ocean all night long from your place. We have rented a lot of places on VRBO and loved yours, you obviously take very nice care of it and the top thing for us was that it was very clean!! We will definitely be back and book your place early so it's open. For anyone who is looking at renting this I would highly recommend! Mahalo!!

Better than home :)

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we've ever used VRBO and the first time we've been to Maui. When we first opened the door, we were greeted with beautiful ocean breezes, a sparkling clean kitchen and bathroom. The bathroom was fully stocked for any minor emergency. The kitchen was stocked with all appliances (except a dishwasher, but that was fine) you could need. Melissa even had a full bag of coffee for us - which was wonderful. The bed and couch were very comfy. There was basic cable - but we brought a roku, so we didn't use that much and watched netflix whenever we were in, which wasn't much. The view from the lanai was AMAZING. Grilling out at sunset was also really nice -- I can't believe more people didn't utilize the grill and picnic tables.

The location of the condo was super convenient. Within walking distance of a few restaurants, a convenience store, liquor store, coffee shop -- all within 5 min walking distance. Gorgeous beaches within walking distance as well. If you don't feel like going to the beaches - the pool across the street was nice, and pretty quiet.

Bottom line, I can't think of a better home away from home.

Awesome R&R

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed this incredible condo with the splendid view morning, noon, and night! We watched the turtles dining on the lower level oceanfront, even snorkeled with them! We watched the sunset from the lanai, followed by viewing the stars and the Milky Way, leading to a restful sleep in the very comfortable bed. A short walk to Kahana beach and Pohaku park for more snorkeling with turtles and colorful fish! This is the best location for R&R on West Maui! We highly recommend this condo and hope to return soon! Mahalo!

Awesome location, amazing condo

  • 5 of 5

This is THE place to stay in West Maui. Away from the crowds and right by great beaches, the condo has all of the amenities one could hope for. Great lanai/balcony, comfy bed, very functional kitchen. And it's there. I know that when we head back to Maui, we're absolutely going to try to stay here again.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Melissa's charming home is lovely. The important things, like the bed and towels, are top notch. The mattress was extremely comfortable. The towels were plush. The lanai could not have a better view. The lower property is accessible. Be sure to watch the turtles feast there. We did that for hours! BBqing right on the beach was a blast. You don't really need a car if you stay here as anything you need--food, booze, beaches--are walking distance. I highly recommend Melissa's unit and the complex as a whole.

Perfect location and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Words can't begin to describe how amazing our Maui stay was and it's all due in part to our stay in this condo. The condo is very comfortable and cozy, especially if it's a couple getaway. Everything you need is provided, including things like shampoo, conditioner, bath soap and dish soap. We especially loved having the two beach chairs, beach umbrella and cooler which we used every day. What makes this condo so nice is it's proximity to a lot of fun beaches. We typically stayed to north of the condo to visit beaches like Napili, Kapalua and Oneloa. All these beaches are honestly 5-10 minutes within each other. Each beach is great for certain things. For example Kapalua is great for snorkeling, but not for wave seekers. We found Napili and Oneloa the best beaches for waves. The only beach we visited to the south of the condo is Ka'anapali Beach by Whaler's village. The beach is huge and it's fun to walk the boardwalk which goes along the entire beach. This beach is about 10-15 minutes away from the condo.

I will mention that one thing we really enjoyed about this condo is how peaceful and quite it is. Staying in a nice hotel is fun, but its accompanied with A LOT of people and music. It was nice to go back to the condo after a day at the beach to just relax in peace and quite where the only thing you hear is the ocean about 20-30 feet away. You really can't beat that unless you want to spend some big money at a hotel.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay. Melissa was very helpful and very willing to communicate at a moments notice. From arranging the condo to showing up to use the condo, the process was very smooth. I definitely would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a place that is quite, beautiful and within proximity to a lot of fun attractions.

Thank you Melissa for letting us share in your piece of paradise and we will definitely look to use your place again when we come back.

Kahana is located halfway between Kaanapali and Kapalua. There is nearby Golf courses in Kapalua and Kaanapali, including Kapalua Golf Academy. There are many hiking and walking trails in the area. There are several restaurants, banks, shops, and a small general store within walking distance of the condo, including Maui Brewing Company, Dollie's, and a Sushi restaurant. There are several great beaches in the neighborhood, and several great snorkeling spots in the area. Honolua Bay is just north, and Ironwoods horseback riding is a 5 minute drive. Lahaina Harbor and Kaanapali Beach are close by and have boats that go sailing, snorkeling, whale watching (in season), and have dinner cruises. So much more...A guide in the condo will give you more info.
