Why Sandy Szymanski chose Maui

Maalaea is Centrally located. You will want to see all of the island and this location is absolutely, hands down, THE BEST spot to make your home while exploring Maui.

What makes this condo unique

Not only are you centrally located for driving and sight seeing the entire island, you are within a 10 min (or less) WALK to sandy beachs, Haycraft Park, the Maui Ocean Center, Maui Sports Park, Maalaea Harbor (to catch all the boats for all kine excursions), multiple restaurants, shops for enjoyment, a fueling station, and even a convenience store. And you are NOT in the busy hububb of south Maui.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Aloha Sandy,

Thank you very much for renting your apartment to us for our stay in Maui. We enjoyed the location especially being able to see the whales and turtles from the lanai.

The little touches in the kitchen was also a pleasant surprise-- the spices, condiments etc. It may meal preparation a little easier and more enjoyable. The bed was comfortable and the unit was quiet and peaceful.

Overall, our stay in your unit was one of the most pleasant we have had on Maui.

Thank you again,

V. & D.

Five star view two star condo inside

  • 3 of 5

The view could not have been any better. Beautiful and private from balcony. I was very disappointed in the condo itself. Definitely ready for some TLC and did not feel clean.

I clean the home myself and I take great care to ensure our guests will be happy upon arrival. However based on your review I must have missed something and I am very sorry! You can be sure that this incident is the exception and not the rule. Don't take it from me, I welcome you to read our other guest reviews. Thank you for letting me know so I can improve the experience of our future guests. With Aloha, Sandy

This was our fourth year staying for the winter. We arrive the first week of Jan and leave to be home by Palm Sunday each year. We will continue this for the foreseeable future. Just a great place. Quite yet just a short drive to everything. Close walk to anything you need, beach, store, restaurants, sightseeing cruises at the harbor and much more. Everything you might need to cook a great meal is right there. When it is ready you can eat on the Lanai, 40' from the water and watch the whales, turtles and flying fish. A view you will pay dearly for at many restaurants. As many others have said, Sandy is wonderful to work with and will make sure everything you need is in the condo. If you want a quite peaceful place to spend a few days or a month to enjoy the Island, this is the place.

Quiet, clean, well appointed oceanfront condo

  • 5 of 5

This quiet, clean, well appointed condo is located within walking distance of many amenities (restaurants, bars, small grocery store, marina and aquarium) but is away from the major tourist areas of Kihei and Lahaina in the town of Maalaea. Excellent for those that do not want to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the larger centres. The views from the lanai are stellar - we saw whales breaching over our morning coffee! The beach is a very short (2 minute) walk from your door and the complex has a nice pool and barbeque area. Sandy is a very helpful hostess and is available should you have any questions. We were very impressed by how clean the condo was and happy for the starter package of coffee and basics that was provided. We would definitely stay here again - thanks Sandy!

Overall a 4.2 experience which could easily be raised to 5 with two mechanical repairs.

  • 4 of 5

The management deserves 5 stars for responsiveness, graciousness and professionalism.

The location and views are spectacular, allowing a 24 hr. tropical view/venue to raise one's spirits and dispell the fog of work and the pressures of our industrial society.

The design of the unit gets 4 because of the need to admit air through the bedroom involving louvered glass panes (whose adjustment levers were not operable) through which the wind shrieked and whistled all night, while noises of late arriving and departing visitors in the hallway combined with very early morning activity near the adjacent rubbish bins were disruptively audible throughout the night.

All-in-all a 4.2 experience.

Great value, beautiful ocean view and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Sandy's condo for 9 nights. The condo was very clean and well equipped. Sandy was very attentive to our needs. The condo is centrally located, and within a half hour drive to Makena Beach, Lahaina and Costco. We have enjoyed staying there very much, and will definitely stay there again when we return to Maui.

Wonderful location and ocean view!

  • 4 of 5

We spent 14 days in this wonderful condo. It is located in a quiet area between Lahaina and Kihei and is ideal for convenient travel to all parts of the island. The unit was very comfortable, spacious and stocked with everything that we needed. Haycraft Park is a short distance from the condo and we enjoyed our morning walks on the beach. We loved watching the sea turtles! We had an incredible ocean view from the second floor lanai and we enjoyed watching the sunrise and sunset. Thank you Sandy for being efficient, responsive and so accommodating to our needs. We would highly recommend this condo.
