Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Not a Hotel, Not a Highrise, a 'Home'.

When we say it's a 'home', we're reflecting on the many comments our guests have fed back over the years. They've returned to their 'home back home' with suntans, rich memories of the tours and activities they've chosen to experience. But they also take along memories of just having been free to relax with no hassles or elevator rides, or lengthy walks to the beach, or the garage. Ours is a kickback place where you call the shots.

With only eighteen units in the complex, we offer seclusion and privacy if that's your desire, or, if you choose, you'll easily find some great fun right there on the premises. Here's a sample of what can be found:

Stairs to the water lead to snorkeling, board and body surfing, kayaking, surf fishing. All are enjoyed just off our shore.

There's whale watching in winter and early spring.

Turtles come visit and dolphins are seen jumping not far away.

You're invited to join the fun at our resident manager's weekly sunset PuPu parties next to the pool.

It's just a short walk to the three-times-weekly Farmer's Market.

Your daily needs can be fulfilled at nearby grocery and convenience stores, delis and locally popular take-out eateries.

Frommer's Travel Guide named our Hoyochi Nikko Ocean Condos as one of their highest recommended properties. Maui Revealed gives Hoyochi Nikko their prestigious Gold Bar rating for excellence. Independent rating service 'Family Trips' gives Hoyochi Nikko, the Hyatt Regency and the Sheraton Maui a B+. with a side note 'Great!' It's where I would want to stay in Maui!'

About Pam Steffen

My husband Jay and I live in the Northern California wine country, love the outdoors and our many return trips to our home away from home on the Maui beach front. We especially enjoy sharing our little slice of Maui Paradise with our guests, who continue to tell us how much they enjoy themselves during their stay. We welcome all our repeat visitors, and eagerly look forward to welcoming you first timers into our Island family. Aloha! Pam and Jay

Pam Steffen purchased this condo in 1999

Why Pam Steffen chose Maui

First it was Maui, and our love affair with its unique variety of tropical landscape, country roads and dramatic ocean scenery. Add to that the wide choice of activities from snorkeling, surfing, championship golf, hiking, fishing along with plain old soaking up rays and napping on the beach. Our best discovery on Maui was when we stepped through the front door of our beachfront condo. We were treated to a postcard view of azure water with the sun setting between the islands of Lanai and Molokai. It was love at first sight. We now welcome you to that same experience. May it be everything you're looking for and more.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo (one of only 18 on the two-story oceanfront property) has often been described as 'The Honeymoon Nest' because of its top floor, end-unit privacy. Other benefits we brag about are: a 20-foot vaulted wood ceiling, a remodeled kitchen, bath and air-conditioned bedroom.

Exceptional hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Out of the five properties that I stayed at throughout the Hawaiian islands, Pam and Jay's place was by far the best. The location is excellent. The condo is well-kept, very clean, and supplied with all of the necessities for a pleasant stay. The A/C in the bedroom was an added, and very welcome, bonus.

The beach that fronts this property is small, relatively private, and very clean. If you snorkel, there is a wide variety of fish to see. Even if you don't snorkel, you can't miss the green sea turtles that snack on the rock outcroppings and rest on the beach in front of Hoyochi Nikko.

The resident managers keep the grounds in great condition. But the best part of this unit is the owner, Pam. She is responsive, helpful and kind.

The property was veryour well maintained, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

HN 209 exceeded our expectations. The condo was stocked with everything we needed and more. The property is beautiful. We enjoyed the daily sightings of turtles, several even came up onto the beach! We can't wait to come back. We are already planning for next year and will definitely stay at Hoyochi Nikko again!

A fantastic location for a Maui Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic visit to the Hoyochi Nikko property, and enjoyed staying in Pam's condo. The location is great, just north of Lahaina with easy access to the many great beaches and activities along the west coast of Maui. The property has beach access we took advantage of everyday, and enjoyed lying out in sun as we read books and took in the view.

The condo itself was great. It is well maintained, clean, and covered all our needs. There is fully equipped kitchen, which we took full advantage of, making breakfast in the mornings and taking to the balcony to enjoy the beautiful view. There are communal gas grills that maintained by the building management, and worked great for grilling up a few dinners. The bed was a comfy king size mattress, which is perfect for 2 adults. The bathroom is a good size with a tall shower head that even my 6'9" frame was comfortable under.

Pam is a fantastic owner, and was great to work with. She answered any questions we had promptly, and provide us with loads of information about things to do and places to explore. The experience was smooth, and a lot has to do with the excellent customer service provided.

I highly recommend renting this unit for your stay in Maui. It is perfect for place a couple to get away to. We hope to stay in Pam's unit in the future.

Perfect Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at the Condo and loved every minute of it. Great location just north of Kaanapali and Lahaina making trips into town and adventures further north super easy. This is our second time at Hoyochi Nikko and love the quiet laid back pool area/beach steps away from the Condo. Great place to lay out, read a book and watch the turtles swing by all day. Condo was perfect with everything we needed and a beautiful view from the patio.

Pam & Jay were very responsive in coordinating all details of the trip. Will definitely be back!

Beautiful, peaceful view!

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home at this condo. It was perfect for the two of us. The view was amazing and we also had some privacy. The barbecue and pool were conveniently located. The complex was small enough that I never saw the pool or barbeque crowded. The kitchen was excellent to cook in and we made a lot of breakfasts and cookies after a long day. I liked the convenience of a washer and dryer. The beach was perfect and we had the best sand. It was relaxing to see people enjoying the ocean. Parking was tight at first but even with a trans am rental car we were able to access it.

Absolutely Great

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in this condo and it won't be our last visit. The views, the location and the people we met were all fabulous. When we got home I realized most of our clothes were clean and all were DRY. It was wonderful having a small washer and dryer in the condo. We packed lighter because we did not have to go to a laundromat (miserable way to spend an afternoon on vacation). While our clothes were washing I sat on the lani and watched the waves and the occasional turtle. It is a corner unit on the second floor so it has great ventilation and complete privacy. We did not use the air conditioner once but it was nice to know it was there. We meet the owner and she is great, friendly and helpful. The book of recommendations and the comments from other guests were very helpful. We took many of the suggestions. Thanks Pam for the great condo!!
