About pat and gil

I am a retired banker and now a professor in Emerging Markets at NYU and my husband is an ER Physician. Our family has vacationed in Kapalua annually since 1986 first as renters and later as owners. We always viewed it's the perfect way of getting away (mentally and physically ) from the daily stress while still remaining in the USA!

pat and gil purchased this condo in 2005

Best Place on Maui

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to most Hawaiian islands. Maui is our favorite. Pat and Gil's condo in Kapalua is the only place to stay. The views are terrific and it is nice to hear the ocean from your bed and enjoy the ever present trade winds. Their description of their property is very accurate, but you need to be there to experience the beauty.

Restaurants and beautiful beaches are practically at your door step. Some of the best snorkeling anywhere on Maui.

Just go and enjoy, you'll be delighted. If we could give then 10 stars we would.

Excellent Maui stay; the villa was really special. You can see and hear the waves hitting shore.

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly memorable stay. The villa has superb ocean views. Didn't want to leave bed with so many views that run almost all sides of the room. Each morning a sunrise view and then a few steps from bed the sunset view .

The villa is furnished simply and appropriately for the beach and was fully equipped with anything we needed, even an equipment room the owners allowed us to use with beach stuff- chairs , boards even some flippers and masks. The villa really is about location, location, location or more precisely views, views, views. We loved it and plan to come back next year . Also the owners were easy to work with and always available. No wonder most of their guests are return visitors . A wonderful vacation. We plan to come back next April.

Amazing stay at The Ridge

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation (20th Anniversary) at The Ridge staying in this condo. The listing was completely accurate. With the amazing cross breeze, we never turned on the air conditioner. This is VERY unlike us--but as advertised, it was unnecessary. The unit itself was a bit dated (you can also tell from the photos) but the view from both the bedroom and entire downstairs was fantastic. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with all sorts of cookware and dishware. The garage storage area had beach chairs (etc.) that we used every day. One of the pools was within yards of the unit and was almost always empty! The grounds were lovely and quiet. The owners surprised us with chocolates and sent flowers midweek. We enjoyed walking to the beaches for swimming and snorkeling with the turtles. Our favorite beach was Napili Bay. The only time that we used our car was to go to the grocery store and to drive to breakfast at The Plantation House. Other favorite meals were at The Sea House (dinners) and The Gazebo (breakfast/lunch). The Sea House has nightly specials and an Early Bird 3 Course Meal. We enjoyed walking and running on the Kapalua Coastal Trail (rugged at times). We've stayed at fancier resorts before, but none of them compare to this condo. It was spectacular!

A pleasure to deal with the owners Pat and Gil

  • 5 of 5

Unfortuntly I cannot write very much about the house, because my wife had an accident a few days before our trip to Maui.

But what I can say is how lovely and helpful Pat and Gil were when I had to cancel our reservation. They were so kind to immediately put our time slot on the market again in order to get someone else take it and they where successful, so they could return a big portion of the money back to us.

Dear Pat and Gil, I hope my wife and me can catch up with the travel in the beginning of 2018!

Very comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

We were at the Ridge at Kapalua in March of this year and we had a wonderful time! We were 4 people (me, my wife and our two daughters). We entered the property to be welcomed by some Hawaiian chocolate and a bottle of wine!

The property is a 1 bedroom two-story unit with the living room, kitchen and a bathroom downstairs, and a larger bedroom upstairs with its own bathroom. The living room sofa-bed made the living room a second bedroom. The carpet was worn a bit but it was not bad. The kitchen was well stocked with everything that is needed for stay – Hawaii is expensive, and so we appreciated the ability to buy and cook at least 1-2 meals a day. My recommendation is to visit Costco upon arrival (it is right next to the Kahului airport).

The unit is air-conditioned but in the 10 days or so we stayed there, we did not need it since the breeze was more or less continuous. Pat warned me that the breeze sometimes was strong enough to rattle the wall-hangings, and she was right! What we liked most were the two Lanai’s – one upstairs and one downstairs. The view of the Pacific was excellent, and many mornings, we saw whales breaching! I took a video of this since my friends wouldn’t believe me otherwise. The beach is a short 5-8 minute walk down, and not crowded. The unit provided towels, beach umbrellas, coolers etc. that we could take to the beach.

The Kapalua area itself looked exclusive and a bit on the posh side. There is a store in the neighborhood (The Honolua store) and quite a few restaurants not very far from there (including the Gazebo). The furnishings were comfortable (though the carpet could use replacement) and served our needs. The washer dryer in the unit made it possible to pack light. Pat was very gracious and had a tropical flower arrangement delivered to us the day after we arrived. 4.5 stars on account of the worn carpeting, but on the whole, you will not be disappointed with staying here.
