Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4, King Size Bed, Queen Sofa Sleeper. Adjoining Studio

Our direct oceanfront Paki Maui condos (we have 2 Condos at Paki Maui, to see VRBO numbers for these click more detail below) are located in beautiful West Maui along the Ka'anapali coast above Lahaina. While relaxing on your Paki Maui condo's private lanai, you will have incredible views of the islands of Moloka'i and Lana'i and the breathtaking Hawaiian sunsets will be a lasting memory. Listen to the local sounds announcing sunset every evening by the blowing of the conch shells up and down the coast.

If your travels bring you to Maui from mid-December through April, you will be treated to the magical experience watching the migration of the incredible Humpback whales to the warm Maui waters. Watch these “gentle giant’s” frolic in the channel from your lanai or book a trip on a local whale watching boat where whale sightings are practically guaranteed during this time. Pods of spinner dolphins and giant green sea turtles can be seen year round.

The Unqiue Benefits of this Condo: As owners of these two units, we have checked and rechecked into vacation rental companies, and have decided to give it a whirl on our own. We did try a couple of them before we had renovated and they are just not good enough for us. We are way too fussy in the cleaning department. So if you are looking for somewhere that has taken extra care for your bedding, towels, dishes, floors and baths, you want to stay with us. We even ask that you remove your shoes. We want more for our guests than the big companies offer. We live in Maui and live only about 5 minutes away. If we are not available we have back up people (two) that can come to your every beck and call. About 50% of Paki Maui is run by Castle Resorts, and they man the front desk. About 25 % are people like us, or those that have chosen other Property Managers, and the remainder of the Paki is owner occupied.

Concierges Desk: You are free to consult the concierges’ desk in the front office, and they are happy to exchange bills for the quarters you might need for laundry. Other than that we run our 2 units by ourselves.

Our Condos at Paki Maui: We have 2 Condos at Paki Maui, a 1 Bedroom's and a Studio. You can get info on these a, VRBO 330040, and VRBO 330047

About Jannette Knowley

We are originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, we have lived in Maui for 15 years now, just up the street in Kaanapalii. We love Maui, and hope to stay here forever more. We have become active in the community. We belong to Lahaina Yacht club and participate in many activities benefitting the children (the Keiki) of Maui. We have been in the hospitality industry (we owned a large nightclub/sports bar) for more that 20 years and feel we know how to take care of peoples needs. We are very friendly people, and if time allows we could get together for a refreshment or two. Yes, many people from Salt Lake really do occasion a cocktail.

Jannette Knowley purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jannette Knowley chose Maui

As you already know, we have been here for several years, we have looked into many different locations and found that the Honokawai area and particularly Paki Maui to be the best of all worlds. Paki Maui has beautiful grounds that are exceptionally well maintained. It is located adjacent to a beach park. It is central to the Islands West side and has so much to offer within walking distance or a short drive. We are surrounded by beaches, golf courses, famous restaurants, the farmers market. Downtown Lahaina is only a few miles away where nightlife, shops and galleries abound. Whalers village is just a hop skip and jump away. Stop to see the Whalers museum and learn all about whales. If you are in the mood to stay in and enjoy the sunset from your lanai or the beach you have pizza, local cuisine, fresh fish, super market, deli's or numerous other food establishment only a short walk away.

What makes this condo unique

If you are looking for somewhere that has taken extra care for your bedding, towels, dishes, floors and baths, you want to stay with us. We even ask that you remove your shoes. We want more for our guests than the big companies offer. We are in Maui most of the time and live only about 5 minutes away. If we are not available we have back up people (two) that can come to your every beck and call. About 50% of Paki Maui is run by Castle Management, and they man the front desk. About 25 % are people like us, or those that have chosen other Property Managers, and the remainder of the Paki is owner occupied. You are free to consult the concierges’ desk in the front office, and they are happy to exchange bills for the quarters you might need for laundry. Other than that we run our 4 units by ourselves.

Great location, very clean, oceanfront, perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui for my 60th Birthday and Maui did not disappoint and especially this condo! It was perfect! Great location for what we wanted to do in Maui and right on the ocean....it was great listening to the ocean waves every evening. We had breakfast on the lanai every morning and it was very relaxing. Very clean and plenty of storage in the bedroom for all of our stuff (I always over pack :). Jannette and Kent were great, kept us informed and sent over information two weeks before we left that explained everything. I cannot say enough about how great the condo was and we will definitely be back!! Thanks Jannette and Kent!!

A breathtaking weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary in Maui and we decided we wanted to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the busy resorts and find a nice condo to relax in for a few days. We only had a couple of requirements: we wanted oceanfront property and also wanted to be comfortable in the condo. The pictures of Paki Maui #102 seemed promising and we decided to request a reservation. The owner immediately called me (on a weekend, no less) to say she was out of town but that she saw my reservation come in and wanted to make sure I knew it was received successfully even if she couldn't respond by email - this was the start of some of the best communication I've ever received from a VRBO owner. The owner was always in touch, provided me with more than enough information to make our stay comfortable, and was always a phone call away if we needed anything while on the island.

The condo itself was up-to-date and immaculate, but even so, it was nothing compared to the view you see when you first open the curtains to the lanai. A breathtaking view of incredible blue waters awaited us and left us in awe each and every morning.

I could go on and on, but I'm going to save me and you some time: You may be looking at this VRBO listing and wondering if the pictures and description are accurate. I will tell you now, not only both accurate, they probably don't do justice to the experience that awaits you. The pictures don't share the sound of the ocean waves hitting the shore right outside your lanai. The pictures don't show the friendly shops and amazing restaurants that are right across the street. The pictures don't show how fully stocked the kitchen is (really - they thought of everything). And finally, the pictures don't show how welcoming and caring the owners really are - how their only goal is to make you feel like this condo is just an extension of your own home, so that you can get on with whatever event or celebration brings you to the unforgettable island of Maui.

Thank you for sharing your home and giving us an unforgettable 10 year anniversary get-away. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Aloha Charles and Ronda. Wow are you an author? How very eloquent. Your review simply blew Kent and I away. Wow, how incredible. Thank you for thinking of everything, even the items in the kitchen cabinets. I so very much appreciate the time and effort you took into telling people what we have to offer. We love them lots too. AND we LOVE guests like you two. You two have made us very happy and now we hope we can bring more of that happiness into more of the hearts of our future guests. We just sold 402 and 402A, we are in hopes that all those folks will come stay with us in 102 and 102A ha ha. We sure hope you will be back before your 15th anniversary..... mayby try for the 12th???? Ha we hope to see you soon regardless. Many thanks once again and of course Angels on your day,.

Home away from home in Heaven

  • 5 of 5

I had such a wonderful time during my stay in Maui thanks to Jannette and Kent, they were always so responsive and provided all the necessary details way in advance prior my trip. The condo was spotless (being a clean freak I really appreciate it that) and you can find everything you need and even more!! Beach chairs, umbrella etc. are all waiting for you ... The view from the lanai is unbeatable, simply just can't get enough of it! I loved having my breakfast outside in the mornings. If you don't feel like driving anywhere, there are shops, restaurants, and a Bad Ass Coffee place just around the corner

I just can't thank enough for Jannette and hubby Kent for sharing their little gem and I would definitely stay here again if I ever return to Maui. I would highly recommend the place for anyone, both singles, couples of all ages

Angels on your day

Owner's Response: Aloha My Little World Traveler. I certainly hope you will come back to Maui, I must meet you face to face. You left the condo in absolutely excellent condition, Thank you. And Mahalo for all the kind words. Our condos are our world right now, and we love making people happy and content while they are there.. I very much appreciate your words, it makes us feel good too. Many Angels on your day. Promise me you'll come back or at least I'm going to keep you on a contact list, so I can say where in the world is my little traveler. Ha ha.

Great condo with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast in Hawaii and our trip was made even better by Ken & Janette's condo. The views from the lanai are beautiful, you can see the coast of molokai and in the afternoon turtles hang out just off the beach (which is literally right there).

The owners gave great recommendations and the place was very clean. We would definitely stay there again!

Owner's Response: Aloha Michelle: Many mahalos for your review. We love your opinion. It also helps tons of potential guests. We think it's most important when they can hear what a previous guests thoughts are. AND true that ocean is right there. Many people can't believe how close it really is. Thanks for "just saying" Ha. Also you'd be interested to know that family of turtles has been there for a very long time. NOAH has them all marked and they are very happy right there. We certainly hope you come back and see us real soon. Angels on your day Jannette and Kent

Great condo, unbeatable view!

  • 5 of 5

This is the kind of place where you don't feel bad about hanging out in your condo, because you still feel like you're right on the beach. From the lanai there are fantastic views of molokai and the water is literally a few steps away. The turtles like to float just off shore in the afternoon.

The condo is very clean, cute, and has everything you need. The owners are great and very helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Aloha MC: Mahalo for the great review. I can't tell you how often people want to know how previous guests felt about their stay with us. Our reviews are so very helpful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for yours. The condo proximity to the ocean is unbelievable. Truly it is. Many times people don't get the full reality of it from the web site. You have been totally helpful. We hope you come back again real soon. Angels on your day.

Great rental choice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beachfront condo for 5 nights and enjoyed our time. The views and the location are just awesome. After walking up and down the beach, it's clear that a building directly on the water like this one, just doesn't really exist. So if you want a beautiful balcony/views/directly on the water, this is the place. Newer hotels, resorts, condos are all set back significantly from the water - probably due to building code changes. Yes, the rest of the unit is great too (well stocked, lovely hosts, etc), but the pictures don't do the place justice on the views. Sit on the couch or balcony at night and just listen to the waves / watch the sunset. Also because the condo building is small you are in and out in no time - 1 minute to the road. No long elevator rides and 10 min walk to the car. Restaurants across the street are great - fish market in particular is highly rated.

While we found the unit to be quite comfortable for a couple, it wasn't huge and probably not suitable for 4 people.

Owner's Response: Aloha Anita and Chris: Many Mahalos from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate your words more than I can say. You two were great guests too. I love how you told everyone about our proximity to the ocean. We are so close, it's hard to describe to people where they don't think we've got 12 heads right? Like right you are THAT close? Ha well yes we are, as you have described it beautifully. Thanks also for telling folks about the condo and quickly you can be on your way, yet having it all pretty darn nice on your way out. I hope you two will come stay with us again real soon. Remember we give return guests 5% discount. Again, thanks for staying with us, and thanks so very much for the review. Angels on your day. Jannette and Kent
