About Alan

We've been coming to Maui since we got together many years ago and decided to share our home with our wonderful guests and make them part of our OHANA (family). We love to welcome folks throughout the world to our ground floor direct oceanfront home!

Alan purchased this condo in 2003

Why Alan chose Lahaina

We fell in love with Maui many years ago and bought directly on the beach so we could wake up to the waves and the turtles and whales.

What makes this condo unique

This home is a ground floor direct oceanfront unit with a large lanai right on the water. We've been remodeling since we bought it so it has the look of hardwood floors and the look of granite plus new cherry cabinetry in bed and bath. Beach access is right next door. But also 20 beaches on our block with full facilities!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was perfect! The condo was exactly what we wanted. We had the perfect end to every day at the condo sitting by the water, looking at the sea turtles and watching the sunset. Every one was so nice and very helpful. We would definitely come back!!

Wonderful ocean front (literally) condo

  • 4 of 5

We spend 4 weeks in this condo and enjoyed it immensely. When we checked in we found the initial supplies (soap, paper towels, t paper etc) were adequate to generous - always nice when you don't have to make a quick run to the store! The king bed was comfortable and there were plenty of fresh towels. The condo was perfect for the 2 of us. I think you could add a couple of kids and it still would be comfortable. If in the future we would come back to the area, we certainly would consider this condo again.

Nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the condominium for our two week stay in Maui. We were able to do something via car about every other day. Examples are: that we drove to North Maui for some sightseeing on coastline; day trip to Kihei; day outing to Maui Ocean Center; visited the Kula Gardens; day trip to Haleakala Crater(clear weather at the top!). We also experienced an all day Mahalo Tour of the road to Hana and the southern tip of Maui. That tour is highly recommended if you can afford it. On other days, my daughter and boyfriend practiced snorkeling in swimming pool before venturing out in the ocean front area of the condominium. One day the saw some very pretty and varied fish in the ocean not too far from the beach area. Some of the fish were very similar to what we saw at the Maui Ocean Center. Another day, my wife and I took them to an area just north of the D.T. Fleming Beach Park(Kapalua) and they saw fewer fish but some pretty coral reef and a good size turtle. One morning, we all saw some dolphins off in the distance in ocean heading in northerly direction. Early in the stay, the young adults also saw few turtles near the rocky and sandy beach area to the south of the property. My daughter's boyfriend was very good at using the nearby barbecue and prepared some very delicious evening meals for us!. We experienced some very interesting and pretty sunsets during our stay.

We had an initial problem with few linen supply items our first night stay. However, we had immediate resolution to our concern the next day. Thank you housekeeping department. We did not experience any other issues during our stay. The parking lot area was a bit of a challenge for me because the spacing seemed tight for me, but I managed okay.

Shopping for groceries was fairly easy nearby.

A few days before our departure for return to Eureka CA, we met Alan and Steve (owners) momentarily as they were in the area to work on another one of their units. It was great to meet them.

We enjoyed our stay.

Nice stay in Maui

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay at this very nice one bedroom condo. Our last stay was 2-3 years ago. This first floor condo, is ocean front, with a retaining wall, not a sand beach in front. There are stairs you can access down to the water, ( the wall is currently under repair). The sea turtles like to come in and feed off the plants growing on the rocks, so look for turtles. The condo itself is nice, the sliding door and screen door are tough to open and could use either some work or replacement. There is AC in the main room, which is nice being on the first floor and the afternoon sun beats in and heats the condo up at night time. The kitchen comes with basic amenities. The Condo was clean, a few dead bugs but you are in a tropical climate, expect it. We enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back some time soon.

Great Location, but...

  • 2 of 5

Great location!! But... when we first arrived, the toilet was clogged, could not plunge it, had to call the repairman. Next, the lint basket in the dryer looked as if it had never been cleaned out. The vacuum that was provide, had zero suction and also needs to be cleaned out, so I ended up using the little dust buster. The lint was so packed in there, it was a fire hazard. The fold out bed had sand and blood spots on the protective cover. There was sand in the bathroom and that fan in the ceiling needs a good cleaning. Lightbulb burnt out in the fridge. I bought hand soap dispensers, papertowels and left them there along with a can of Lysol. There were 3 hairdryers…not one of them worked. From your details and requests that was provided, I assumed that the condo would be immaculate. I would suggest you find new housekeeping. The condo could use some TLC.

Owner's Response: We sincerely wish you would have told Allyn, our maintenance person, of your concerns at the time he was at the condo at your request to change your refrigerator lightbulb. He asked if there were any other issues and asked you to call him if there were. Neither he nor our cleaning crew were notified of anything else. Of course, it is difficult to address items if they are not reported during the stay. Our cleaning crew is a family owned concern and they have been with us for many years, with only positive comments. Neither the preceding guests or the next ones after you reported any such issues. We pride ourselves on our stellar ratings and love to welcome our new guests as well as our ever returning loyal family of guests back to our beautiful direct oceanfront Maui home to share in our spirit of Aloha.

All-around great place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week here in December. Location is within easy walking to various quick food places and <5 minute drive (or longer walk) to a large grocery market. ~10 minute walk to nice beach. 5 minute drive to brewery. Etc etc, location is great.

Place was clean and well-appointed, including some handy beach supplies. Kitchen with tools, stove, fridge, coffee-maker helped save some money and effort by letting us cook food and store Costco supplies. Bathroom was clean, bed was fine, ceiling fans kept us cool thanks to cooling winds. Breakfast on the lanai every morning looking at the ocean and birds (no feeding!) was great.

Wifi worked great, TV was ok (cable seemed odd) and the TVs let us sling content from our cell phones. Parking was easy. Pool looked nice but we never used it. Weirdly few bugs for Hawaii, the place is kept very clean.

Complex seemed quiet. Only noise at night came from the ocean. Not sure what else to say, A+ would rent again.

Peaceful and beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

Quiet residential setting. Wonderful view with a sense of seclusion. Honokowai is like a small town: accessible, friendly and relaxing. Yet close enough to a major highway that makes exploring viable. The condo was a comfortable home base.
