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

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!

  • 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.

Amazing condo, amazing location, and amazing management, overall we would rate it #10 if we could!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked until we drove away...simply Amazing!!! We have been coming to Maui for over 50 years and this was, by far, our best experience yet. Melanie and Max's condo was terrific, we considered it our home for 28 of the most amazing days of our lives. And I must say...our host, Hope, was genuinely so kind and gracious. She treated us to goodies on a few occasions and we felt so welcomed. The location was absolutely perfect for us. A few reviews complained about the early morning noise with delivery trucks but we never experienced any unwelcomed noise whatsoever. We loved waking up to the sweet sounds of a variety of birds...almost as if we were in a tropical forest..just lovely. We loved the meals at Fred's and Mooses..just a few steps from our door. Parking was awesome, never experienced any problems of any nature. Laundry and garbage was close by as well. We highly recommend this condo to anyone wishing to find the perfect getaway on Maui and we would certainly stay in it again if given the opportunity. Thank you Melanie and Max for allowing us to use your home, we are not only renewed and refreshed but forever grateful and will pass on this experience to all we know. Mahalo Nui Loa and Aloha!!!

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!
