About Richard

We live in Southern California and work in real estate and property management. Our kids are growing up and we are looking forward to enjoying Lahaina more often!

Richard purchased this condo in 2008

Why Richard chose Maui

We first visited Lahaina in 2006 and stayed in a first floor one-bedroom unit with our kids. We loved it so much, we booked another trip about 6 months later, and we were hooked. When this Oceanfront unit came on the market, we made an offer immediately and I flew out to close the deal. We spent the next 90 days having it remodeled (a very close friend/contractor lived in Napili at the time and he oversaw the gutting and remaking of our unit.) Many of the other units in the building have been modeled after our unit, but none have the personal charm and decor that my wife has put into our condo and home away from home!

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the location of the condo. Beachfront and ocean facing. At night we leave the sliding glass doors open and fall asleep to the crashing waves. Every morning we take 30-minute walk along the beach, going as far as we can east toward the million-dollar homes on the beach, and then turn around and walk all the way to the Port of Lahaina and watch the young surfers taking their lessons along the way. We snorkel right off of the beach in front of the building on days we don't want to drive to Kapalua or take a boat out to Molokini Island and Turtle Bay.

(Update March 2016-The heavy storms this winter took a toll on the Lahaina Port area which caused erosion along the beach next to the Port. We were not able to walk all the way to the boats, etc., along the beach. We had to cut through the park and walk along Front Street. We feel bad for the homes next to the port, they lost their beach.

everything and more

  • 5 of 5

there were no surprises at all, in fact, words can not describe the resort and the views. It was everything and more. we were so delighted to have been able to stay at a nice spot, enjoy breakfast and sunsets on the balcony. Richard was fantastic to deal with and we will be coming back to this, if, it is still in the rental market. The grounds were well cared for and the people working in the resort were super nice and friendly.

As Arnold says, "ill be bach".

this was truly a great spot to stay at.

thanks to Richard and his family for such an incredible stay.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting the islands every year since 1985, and this was one of the very best stays!. This condo is clean, well stocked, and there are no bugs! very rare in the tropics. The view is forever, and the lobby staff are so pleasant and helpful. The resort has an activity person and I was referred to a wonderful spa, The location is perfect for solo travelers, plenty to do in walkable Lahaina, great restaurants, the wharf, and surfing lessons next door.

Condo

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo. We will definitely stay here next year. We arrived a couple hours early and called the owners to see if we could get in our room early. The owners called us back within 10 minutes and said yes the room was ready. Great, as we had been up since 4am traveling. Clean room, updated and lots of extras. Owners are easy to get hold of and great to work with.

Excellent Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

If I could give these owners 10 stars I would. While sadly we are not able to stay in their condo due to construction, I was quickly contacted and new reservations were made. They even went above and beyond to send video of the property and scope out neighboring condos to make sure construction would not be an issue. EXTREMELY thoughtful for people I have never met! All questions were answered and more! No "shady business" here! Book this condo with confidence! Thank you again! :)

A Great RELAXING Stay with gorgeous views.

  • 5 of 5

Writing this review while still in the unit. Our 7 week stay nearing an end. This unit is well equipped for short term stay. The included WIFI enabled me to continue with my banking and other business items. Beautiful views and walking distance to the entire town of Lahaina. Car required if you want to golf while your here but the bus system will take you most places for $2. a ride. Recommended unit for 2 persons. Modern appliances and laundry on site. Owners are great communicators and easy to deal with. Already looking to book for next year.

Notes:
Next door at 505 Front Street you can enjoy The Feast at Lele music from the condo's Lanai. Enjoy a more 'Americanized' luau in Kaanapali because the food served at The Feast of Lele is very authentic and our kids don't like it (neither do I, only my wife likes it, but don't tell her that!) There is massage therapy at 505 Front Street, Mina Moghadam. You don't want to miss an opportunity for her Lomi Lomi massage! 808-205-7751, but book early! We walk to Old Towne Lahaina, the Banyon Tree park, shopping, restaurants and most everything we do. We do get a car because I hate waiting for taxis and shuttles, plus we have a routine once we land. Get the car, stop at K-Mart for dry foods, sun screen, bathroom products, etc., and then go the condo and unpack. We then hop back in the car and head to Safeway (on the west end of Lahaina about 7 mins by car) and load up on perishables, etc. If it's early enough, I get a coffee at Starbucks too.
