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 Maui

Will Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect! Everything was cleaned and neatly organized. The manager Hope had left us some goodies during our stay. You are pretty much close to everything. The beach, restaurants, and souvenir shops are within walking distance. This spot is good for people who are coming to Maui to venture off, not spend all their time sitting inside. Some of the reviews are right, you do hear the trucks early in the morning but it did not bother us. If peace and quiet is what you need them go else where. The value and location of the condo

Pleasant, affordable and all the comforts of home! PLUS across the street from a wonderful beach!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights and it was just perfect for our needs. We wanted to be close to the beach (right across the street). There is also a lovely pool, on site laundry facilities and the apartment was equipped with everything you could need such as beach chairs, towels, boogie boards - even sunscreen! The patio was wonderful for having breakfast and everyone we met was friendly. We decided to rent a car and it was no problem to park right outside the unit. We originally were going to rent a hotel room but I am so glad we decided to stay here instead. It was like a retreat center, much more laid back and homey!

The hostess checked on us regularly and provided awesome resource references both before we traveled and good materials in the apartment which we used! We would definitely return here if we make it back to Maui in the future.

The condo was very clean ,nicely decorated and was stocked with everything you would need for making your own meals and enjoying the beach .We enjoyed sitting outside on the lani listening to the birds .The beach is very close, just across the street.The pool was also very close and nice.We never met Hope but she was very friendly and helpful when we talked on the phone.She had some goodies for us when we arrived and also brought us some more treats later on .Thanks Hope! The trucks were noisy in the early morning but so were the birds It is best to get up early to enjoy the wonderful beach ,anyway .Thanks

Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

  • 3 of 5

Two Thumbs Up: pleasing accommodations, tastefully decorated, recently upgraded, and well-maintained. Property manager, Hope, is at your service! Location is great, directly across the street from the beach with a sunset wall where everyone gathers to watch the sun sink into the horizon and listen to the blowing of conch shells. Walking distance to great shops and restaurants - some of our favorites: Maui Tacos, Sensai, and Café O'Lei, along with Hawaiian Moons Natural Foods (a great find, as we treasure our organics!)

One Thumb Down: sprinklers that go off directly in front of the bedroom window somewhere between 4:30 and 6AM (depending on day of week - and they do go off on several days) Although we got used to it after several days, recommend to BRING EARPLUGS if sensitive to waking!

Another Thumb Down: the lanai faces the parking lot to the restaurants next door, and that means delivery trucks, at all times of the day, every day - except maybe Sunday. Although there is a plant wall between the properties to help visually, it does nothing for sound.

Would we go again? Maybe. With earplugs.

Owner's Response: Your review of our home is appreciated. Unfortunately, there a few things that are beyond our control so we make up for it with the little extras in the unit upon arrival as well as our price point. I will look into an ambient sound machine for the bedroom to create a more comfortable nights sleep.

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!
