Why Susan Fereira chose Maui

Purchased this property for its unique, relaxed and 'old Hawaii' feeling. Centrally located, oceanfront and on whale sanctuary with panoramic views. Love to watch the movement of the boats.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came to celebrate our 25th anniversary and had our best ever time on Maui. The non-stop whale

watching from the lanai kept us riveted! My only complaint is that I only had time to read one book-couldn't take my eyes off the bay long enought to read.

We felt comfortable and private and the non-stop breezes meant the lanai was a perfect cool place to relax after revisiting all our favorite places.

Mahalo-hope to be back next year

love love love this unit!

  • 5 of 5

Have been renting units in Maui for the past 15 years and this is the only unit I will stay in. Just returned for the 3rd year and looking forward to coming again next year. The owners are very easy to work with and the personal attention they provide make your stay perfect! This unit is "over-the- top" in comfort and décor. You will want for nothing. The best part--the lanai. Hard to leave as the lanai swivel rockers are so comfortable and the view amazing. Please, don't ever change them. Just sitting and enjoying all the boats cruise in and out of the harbor. So interesting, fun and always something different to watch, like I said, "The best part". The little private beach in front was perfect, didn't have to drive, just walk out the door.

Loved sleeping to the soft sounds of the palm trees and waves. Very relaxing and quiet. Looking forward to my next stay.

Outstanding in Every Way!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Susan and Bill's beautiful Maalaea condo for our week on Maui. We were celebrating a high school graduation, a college graduation and a 25 year wedding anniversary. I have to say that this unit is exceptional and the pictures here do not do it justice. It is furnished like a home a we felt very much at home here. Everything we needed was provided and the permanent residences of the complex were very nice welcoming people. I loved the location on the Marina, central West side of Maui. Nice and quiet. 20 minutes North or South and you are in the more tourist heavy areas so very easy to get to that if that's your taste. You can't actually see the sunset because of the topography of the surrounding area but the sky lights up beautifully over the Marina in the evening so sitting on the Lanai with a cold drink is a great way to end the day. The complex has a newly surfaced salt pool and two new Webber grills in the pool area. We used the grills a couple times and they are kept clean and in good working order. Every evening we went out and sat in the chairs on the grass lawn and watched the sea turtles in the surf. Just amazing! We also loved walking over to Beach Bums for happy hour; $3 mai tai. Susan is great to respond to emails in a very timely manner and Bill called and checked on us mid week. They are great hosts and seem like very nice people. The complex has an onsite property manager (Digger) who is a nice guy and offered lots of suggetsions for good local restaurants. We went on a snorkle excursion to Molokini with the Pacific Whale Foundation and used Tom Barfoot information provided in the condo to book at a dscount. I highly reccomend the PWF because they are a non-profit and the money they make goes to protecting the sea and education programs. Our crew was great and the crater which you can see at a distance from the condo lanai is beautiful. The road to Hana was an experience I suggest also. Plan your stops and get started early. Don't let anyone talk you into returning on the back side of the island! It is beautiful and interesting for a while; amazing (and dangerous!) views of the sea. But the road is in horendous condition and not paved in stretches. I was very worried about blowing a tire. I would just return back the same way you came and save a couple stops for the return trip. I have used VRBO to rent many condos and homes. I am confident in saying you can't go wrong with this unit.

We really enjoyed our view.

  • 5 of 5

We found the condo in excellent condition, the pool was in excellent shape. The grilles we ideal, and we did use it one night. There was lots of space and it had everything we needed, plus lots of extras that we hadn't even thought about. It was so nice to find a cooler to take with us on our day trips. I also found the CD to use in our car that walks you through step by step on the trip to Hona, it was an excellent guide. I think you can also down load a phone App that works well. The Condo was excellent. The amenities were perfect. This location was low key as it is away from most of the big tourist areas, but yet it was close to everything. I enjoyed that we could walk down the harbor and see all the boats coming in and out. It was great to see the fish that some of the boats were bringing in. It was also a short walk to Beach Bums to get a bite to eat. Everyone we met was so nice. The locals were excellent and shared so many ideas. This was our first trip to Maui, but it won't be our last. If your thinking of booking this Condo, you are in for real treat. I would book this place again in a heart beat. If you get the chance to meet the weekend maintenance guy Tony, stop and chat with him. He helped give us ideas and steered us towards some great places. If this is your first trip to Maui, be prepared for color shock. This place was every color that you can think of. Don't for get to go snorkeling, the fish were beautiful and friendly. Thank you for sharing your home with us! I hope we can rent it again some day.

Impressed From the Moment We Walked In!

  • 5 of 5

There was nothing we didn't like about this beautiful penthouse condo. From the minute we walked in and opened the curtains and saw the gorgeous ocean right out our windows we were in heaven. It is tastefully updated and the bathrooms and kitchen are gorgeous. We found everything we needed for our 8 night stay.The king size bed was extremely comfortable and you can even lay in it and look out the large window at the ocean. The patio was extra large and we spent most of our time there watching the turtles and the boats coming in and out. I will say there is a lot of activity at the Marina. We were on an early morning schedule so it wasn't a problem for us.

The location was great as we traveled from one end of the island to the other almost every day to golf. It was convenient to be smack in the middle. We also found the shrimp food truck a couple of lights away and fell in love with the parmesan garlic stuffed shrimp. All of the food was delicious if you don't feel like cooking. If you do want to cook, you should find everything you need to get the job done. We used the bbq down by the pool and met some of our neighbors too!

The little sandy beach area was a great protected place for swimming and snorkeling. I found some fins and masks out on the patio. Not a ton to see in the bay but great for just a quick snorkel. Afterwards you can shower by the pool before you head to your condo. I have to say the pool was nice and warm after floating around in the ocean. I also got to do stand up paddle boarding in the bay for my first time. I am hooked and came home and bought two boards!

I highly recommend this condo and we will definitely be back. Mahalo, Susan!

A Wonderful Condo in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting Hawaii since 1981 and stayed in many condos. This was by far one of the nicest and best equipped units I have stayed in. It is very well maintained, clean, decorated and everything worked. The kitchen had every possible cooking utensil that would be needed and an abundance of dishes, cutlery, and pots and pans. The owner also provided coolers, beach chairs and umbrellas which was appreciated. The Lanai has magnificent views and the furniture very comfortable. The building and grounds are very well maintained and clean as well.

The location is very central to all of Maui and made sightseeing in any direction quite easy. The building is on a dead-end road with little traffic unlike some of the more popular tourist areas. Susan, the owner, was very pleasant to work with and responded quickly to any communications. I look forward to returning for another visit.

Outstanding!! The condo was as comfortable as our home!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot express how the condo's location is just a perfect location on the island of Maui!

The marina and the bay just outside the condo is a very interesting place.

The action was fun to watch. From the boats to the manta rays!

Overall the area is free of the hustle and crowds you find in the tourist areas of the island.Yet, your a half an hour away if you want to enjoy those areas!

Just a Great Place!! We will be back!!
