About Melanie and Max Craddock

My mother's family is from Maui yet I did not visit until I was 18. The islands always appealed to me so my first big solo trip was to Hawaii. Of course, I loved it! A few years ago I was able to come back and make my dream to have a piece of paradise come true. My move to Maui brought a love into my life that is like none I've ever known. Max and I are partners in all things now and we love to share the beauty that is Maui with others. Let us know when you'll be here!

Melanie and Max Craddock purchased this condo in 2012

Why Melanie and Max Craddock chose Kihei

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Max and Melanie's property in Kihei. The location is awesome, right across the street from the beach and within walking distance to lots of eateries and fun places to hang out. The condo had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. Working with Hope, their property manager, was super easy and she accommodated all our needs. Thanks for a great stay!

Awesome property. Renovated interior. Close to beaches and restaurants. Great host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during the busy Christmas week. Had a great time in Kihie/Maui. The KKN complex is old but this unit from Craddocks is renovated, up to date, clean and comfortable. The local host Hope is awesome and followed up the next day as we arrived late due to flight delays. Thanks Hope for the Hawaiian treats. The unit has everything a modern family needs.

One suggestion to enhance the unit will be a dishwasher and a clothes dryer. Washer/Dryer will be handy after a visit to the beach. Alternatively, there is a community laundry room close by.

Clean, Comfortable, and Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

This unit met our expectations and was ideally located for our leisure stay. The unit had everything we needed (the supply of beach gear was a great touch) and the property itself appeared to be well maintained and managed. We would return and recommend it to other couples or singles. Mahalo!

Affordable, clean, remodeled, close to pool, beach, laundry, parking. Everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time on Maui. This condo was perfect for us. Very affordable for this great location, right across from Kama'ole II beach, and close to pool, laundry, and office. Clean, beautifully updated, organized well for late arrival, easy parking, personal touches and attention (treats!). Lots within walking distance and public transportation right out front. Thanks Max and Melanie for sharing your place with us, and thanks to Hope for her attentive service.

Wonderful value!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience staying at this condo in Kihei! The condo is nicely kept and decorated. It is literally just a few minutes to walk to a really nice beach which wasn't over crowded. There are several food and shopping options within walking distance as well. We enjoyed drinking our coffee on the lanai and bird watching in the mornings. The extra amenities such as beach towels, chairs and boogie boards were great to have for use. The property host, Hope, was wonderful! She was very helpful and had the perfect balance of making herself readily available but not being too pushy. We would highly recommend staying at this property.

Car: not necessary

Ideally located across the street from world famous Kamaole Beach II. We really enjoy snorkeling with sea turtles as well as taking in the view from the beach as the sun sets over the island of Lana'i. The second floor of Moose's pub is a good spot to take in the view and a drink. In wintertime, the whales join us all to toast the end of day. There is also the Maui Ocean Center in Ma'alaea harbor for up-close viewing of sea life!

Or catch a glimpse of them right from Kamaole Beach!
