About Joseph

Purchasing our condo in 2008 was a dream come true. We had been vacationing in Maui for years and had always hoped to have a place of our own. The condo was in need of an upgrade, but it was in an excellent location and had a great floor plan with plenty of space. We set about making it our tropical retreat - stylish, yet comfortable. In 2009 we did a major renovation with high-quality finishes and contents - things that we would want in our own home. In 2013 we did a further renovation and purchased additional new furniture. We are constantly improving and tweaking things to make the condo even better.

After several years of traveling to the condo multiple times per year from California, we decided that we wanted to be in Maui full-time. In March of 2012 when we left Maui, we returned to California and sold our home there. Then we sold, gave away or donated 80% of our things and moved to Maui where we bought a house not far from the condo. We were settled in our new home by June of 2012. It was a wild time, but we could not be happier.

Our goal with this condo is to provide our guests with a very clean and comfortable Maui experience with a lot of style and high-end touches thrown in. We have traveled a lot and know what we like and and what we miss when away from home. We strive to anticipate the needs of our guests and provide them with all they may require. We are on-island owners and pay close attention to all of the details, big or small. We want our guests to walk into the condo and say, 'Wow.' And many do just that. Providing this tropical oasis to our guests has been very rewarding and the guest reviews we receive give us great satisfaction. We invite you to contact us to discuss this special place on Maui.

A treehouse view in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, well maintained and perfect condo for two that can actually hold two more. It is close to the beach and walking distance to numerous restaurants as well as an organic grocery store. The owners live close by and are easy to reach. We would definitely try to book this place again as our first choice.

This is a great property

  • 5 of 5

Haleakala Shores is a lovely, well managed complex in an excellent location for beach, restaurants and activities. This unit is bright, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The owners take great care to ensure the unit is well maintained and upgraded when indicated.

Definitely home away from home, with the addition of a fantastic scenery

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Hawaii and we had a fantastic time thanks to the great apartment of Joseph and Marlowe!

The view is fantastic and the place is very quiet at night. We especially enjoyed the peaceful and beautiful lanai to have breakfast or dinner up nestled in the trees. The condo is very well equipped with everything you might need to make your stay enjoyable. Having a pool within the complex was also very nice.

Joseph and Marlowe were always very attentive at making our stay enjoyable: they always had good advices for places to go to (in addition to the full guestbook they provide) and went above and beyond to have the baby equipment we rented available when we arrived and picked up after we left. This is something we really appreciated (as we traveled with our 1 year old).

The condo is ideally placed, with the beach and many shops at walking distance. That was also key for us.

All in all, we would definitely recommend you stay at Joseph and Marlowe's place, it is really home away from home!

Great Condo for a Family!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for us, a family with two kids. It is spacious, with two nice rooms, very comfy beds, very well equipped and super clean! It has Netflix (the kids were very happy!), and DVD player. It also has some board games (my son played scrabble several times). The kitchen has everything you need to cook; bathrooms have also soap and lotion, and even supplies for the beach: a beach chair, umbrella, small ice chest...

The property is very beautiful and well cared. We loved the pool! There are for BBQs but we never used them.

The beach is only a few minutes away, and it is a very nice beach. Other beaches are also close. There are many restaurants and supermarkets around the condo. Joseph and Marlowe even called us to be able to enter the condo a little early! They were very nice. They have a great binder with a lot of useful information about shops, trips, and restaurants.

In summary, we loved it there and if we came back, we surely stay again in this condo. Really perfect! I would recommend it to my friends and my family!

We have found the perfect Maui condo!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed staying in your condo. We hope we get the opportunity for a return visit.

In particular, we really appreciated your attention to detail in everything provided at the condo.

-the beds were super comfortable

-the sheets and linens were top quality

-the Tommy Bahama chairs and umbrella were great, nice ice chest

-you provided a perfect supply of laundry soap, tp, dish soap, foil (we have been to other places where this is totally skimpy)

-lovely soap and other bathroom accoutrements

-the condo was very, very clean

-the condo was very quiet

-convenient location, lovely view, beautiful and thoughtful furnishings

We really appreciated the care that was given to all of the property. The property manager seems very strict and this has certainly paid off in keeping a beautiful and safe setting for all guests as well as owners.

perfect condo for a family of 4 - excellent place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect place for us (family with 2 kids). It is in a great location in South Kihei and in a really quiet complex. The apartment had a really good layout, was very clean and very well equipped (even for the beach was everything there: beachchairs, umbrella, cooler, sandtoys, big beachtowels). The kitchen was very well equipped too - nothing was missed (even a blender for cocktails ;-)). We loved to eat and relax on the pantio. You had a great view toward the coast and could hear and see tropical birds and big butterflies.

It is just a 3-5 minute walk from the apartment trough the complex and over the street to one of the best beaches of Maui - Kamaole Beach III (even with a playground in the park by the beach). We went to the beach several times a day - for a morning snorkel with the turtles, later a dip in the water and play in the sand with the kids and in the evening for a great sunset. The location is just so conventient for that. Other great beaches are really close too. Around the complex are several really good restaurants and shops - so you can walk everything.

We also really loved the pool. It was a great place to spend the whole afternoon. It had all kind of tropical plants and trees around it. Everything was really well kept. There are two barbecue places near the pool - but we never used them.

The Host (Joseph and Marlowe) are very friendly and helpfull. The Informationpackage in the apartment had tons of hints and really usefull informations.

We loved everything on our stay and will come back for sure - hopefully next year!
