About Uma Silbey

I have been living in Maui for nine years and loving every one of them! I am a Maui artist working with jewelry and carved stones, showing my work in island-wide craft shows as well as selling on my own web site and galleries, wellness centers and gift shops worldwide. I've published four books and have also recorded over 18 music and guided imagery CD's. I live upcountry in Haiku where I have a small macadamia nut and tropical flower farm and lots of gardens growing local produce. I spend lots of time at the beach where I love to swim, snorkel and catch waves. When you're visiting, feel free to ask me for recommendations about my favorite places on the island.

Uma Silbey purchased this condo in 2007

Why Uma Silbey chose Maui

I chose this condo because of it's fabulous location. It's hard to find a condo that's any closer to the ocean than this one is. Not only that, but it's close to all of Kihei's restaurants and entertainment, but well away from it's noise and activity, so you've got the best of two worlds...privacy, peace and quiet with amenities!

What makes this condo unique

I stay at this condo myself when I want to get away from the rain in Haiku. It's almost always warm and dry. Since I love to be in the ocean I especially enjoy being able to just step off my lanai and into the water. I especially like the sunset views and the rooftop deck. There are only two Maui condos that I know of that have the rooftop deck. From here you can see all over the island and it's great for having gatherings. Every evening as the sun sets someone blows a conch shell for the most lovely sunset 'salute.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Where to begin! First off, Uma wasn't kidding when she said that the pictures don't even do the view justice. These aren't stock photos of a perfect Hawaiian sunset, taken from SOMEWHERE on the island of Maui; they are in fact EXACT pictures taken RIGHT from that Lanai. You could not possibly get any better- we woke to that sunrise and that sunset every day, and we left the island feeling 10 years younger. Uma's place is super clean, super convenient, and comfortable. The house was very well stocked with cooking supplies/utensils, allowing you to dine in in case you didn't want to eat out every meal. This property wasn't lacking in anything, and we were certainly overly satisfied and would recommend her whole-heartedly to future guests. Uma also took the time to suggest nearby gyms, restaurants, and other things that she thought we would enjoy, as well as extending the invitation to meet her at her art shop up the road. All in all, it made for a very personalized, very intimate, very PERFECT father-son trip; I have to say this is the BEST father son trip we've been on- have done Alaska, two other of the Hawaiian islands, etc- but the setup here was ideal for an older guy who didn't want to go up and down stairs to access the water. 62 size 10 steps from being able to drop your cellphone into the water, I'm not kidding you on that. Still gushing about this place, again, would recommend without a second's hesitation.

Ground floor condo in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This review is a bit late, as I left a previous review but it never went through.

This condo is in a great location, ground floor with a nice lanai, and just steps to the ocean. Actually, there is a sea wall directly in front of the condo, but a few yards to the North is a protected fish pond and beach, and to the South is an open beach. Beautiful sunsets are visible each evening.

The condo is small, but perfect for two people and adequate for four. We had a very nice time here, close to shopping and dining, Indian restaurant on the premises, and a beachfront location. I gave a four star rating only because it could probably use a little updating. But for the price it's really a great deal.

AMAZING VIEW!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property nearly a year before my vacation, so it is easy to say that I forgot most of the property details by the time I came to the island. I was with a friend, and we opened up the email with check-in instructions, and noted the unit number. My friend said he hoped that it was a unit on the top floor. I laughed and said I think we are on the first. We did some scouting, and found our unit. We walked in, and the storm shutters were closed, so the place was pretty dark. The first thing we did was open the shutters, and I was completely shocked. I had no idea how beautiful our view would be! We walked off the lanai, straight onto the grass overlooking the beautiful beach! Needless to say, we spent most of our "home" time out on the lanai, just watching the amazing view, and feeling the wonderful breeze.

Thank you Uma, this has been an unforgettable experience. While I have been to Maui several times before, I never had a stay quite as relaxing as this one. I do believe I mentioned several times during my stay that I will be booking my future Maui vacations around the availability of this rental property.

Mahalo!

Superb View, Superb Location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed July 22-25, 2016. We chose the condo based on pictures and reviews from other guests. Everything was exactly as depicted. The first floor lanai offered a stunning view of the Pacific and palm trees. My husband enjoyed walking right out of the lanai onto a beautiful grass lawn. We had easy walking access to a beach on the left and another on the right. The condo is a short drive to restaurants, shopping, snorkeling sites, and grocery stores. Famous Lahaina is located about 30 mins away, along with other west Maui beaches. It is also a fairly good location is you want to visit Haleakala Crater.

The interior of the condo was tastefully decorated with comfortable couches, a large flat-screen TV, and ceiling fan. A full kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed for any type of cooking. The bed was VERY comfortable, and the bedding was good quality. The unit is not air conditioned (that seems to be the usual on Maui), but we were able to get good cross breezes and were comfortable for the most part. We were there in July, one of the hottest months for Maui. The unit was very clean, but we did get black feet and socks when we walked on the tile floor. We did wish that the checkout time was 11:00 instead of 10:00. The 10:00 a.m. check out was earlier that our other Maui accommodations.

We would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Hi Janet, Thanks for your wonderful review. Yeah...if there is any wind, the dust and sand from the beach gets on the floor. (This happens all along the southern coast.) As always, our cleaner is available by phone. I am so happy that you had a great time here at my condo and in Maui! Aloha, Uma

Wonderful Location - Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was a great stay - had a couple of extra hot days - but then the trade winds kicked back in and cooled everything off nicely. The Condo was well appointed - really comfortable mattress and the living room area had two great seating options. We used the outside table to have our early morning coffee and watch the waves come in. It was quite restful.

Spending time with family is what was most important to us and between all of our families we rented 4 condo's at Menehune Shores, so we had fun dropping by each others home away from home and sharing groceries, BBQ'ing and trying out the Indian restaurant together. (It was great and the service was wonderful!)

Would definitely book this location again!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful place to stay and the view was outstanding! We definitely want to go back next year sometime. We were there for my husband's 78th birthday and we had dinner at the Cafe O'Lei in Kihei and it was yummy! Mahalo to Uma!
