Beaches-: Maui is known for its beaches. There are several we like. ( Beach towels are provided. The sand can be a mess so please shower off at the beach or downstairs south side of the building or in the pool area.) The closest big beach is 'Airport' beach. As you head south toward Lahaina on the upper road (the one toward the mountain), it will be your second traffic light (across from the Sugar Train depot). Turn in. There are bathrooms and a nice big parking lot. One downside, it can be windy here. The next closest beach is at Whalers Village. This is in Ka'anapali proper. Turn right at the Ka'anapali traffic light (just before the golf bridge over the road and follow the road around to Whalers Village on the left. Park in the lot.. Walk through the shopping area to the beach, just past the Hula Grill.
Whales! Whales! Whales!:: During the season watch the Humpback Whale Shows right from the front deck as the adult whales teach their babies how to jump and play. No need to even go on a boat to watch for whales! This mountain-view condo has been popular for many years and has many happy and satisfied returning annual guests. We recently purchased from the last owner who had great reputation. We have upgraded all of the windows and doors and installed a new air conditioner, wireless with firewall protection. Annual guests will find out the condo now is even better!! Also, our unit has its own washer and dryer for your added convenience.
Only four stories high our property is relatively quiet set away from all the high-rise resorts and condominiums. Enjoy the advantage being on the top floor, nothing is between this resort and the OCEAN! Besides being 5 minutes away from world famous beaches, we also have our own small sandy beach cove that is just to the left of our barbeque area.
There is a nice sandy entrance into the water and you will usually find the current in this area quite calm for easy swimming. Enjoy the private snorkeling area right in front of your condo! Explore the incredibly clear waters of the Pacific Ocean where colorful TROPICAL FISH AND SEA TURTLES play! Be sure to enjoy all the wonderful restaurants in our area. Roy’s is just up the street and considered one of Maui’s best! Or, you may just want a nice relaxing dinner at home. You can barbeque on the OCEAN FRONT and listen to the soothing waves.
Breath taking SUNSETS year-round.: During the year the sunsets move back and forth from the islands of LANAI and MOLOKAI. What a sight! Words cannot describe what it is like watching sunsets from the front deck on the beautiful West Maui OCEAN EDGE and with the surrounding Pacific Ocean sound.
The Hawaiian GET License # is: W43740339-01.
This is Julia & Jack's place.
Becky Fuller purchased this condo in 2011
The condo complex is very quiet and relaxing. Great deck out front to enjoy the sunsets and see the whales & turtles.
What can you say! A week in Maui cannot get much better than that!
Beautiful weather every day 80* everyday and sunny - I might be moving here!
Super accommodations!!! We think it is the perfect spot that is central to everything.
We will definitely recommend to anyone coming over.
This property could use some work but it is good value for the price. The kitchen counter has cracked tiles and the grout is very dirty. On the other hand, the stove and fridge are new and the dishwasher is whisper quiet. There is wall to wall carpet except for the kitchen and bathroom. The carpet appears old and stained in places. The bed is extremely comfortable, the TV is good with lots of channels. The wifi works most of the time. The building is from 1975 and the wiring inside the building seems to be an issue for the internet connection during hours of heavy use. The telecom company can't do anything about this.
The property manager is extremely responsive to concerns. When I arrived, there were 2 can openers that didn't work and no baking dishes in the kitchen. These were provided the same day. The area under the bed had not been vacuumed - I found an old hair elastic under there. The upright vacuum does not fit under the bed - I tried to vacuum it myself.
The building is well-maintained including the pool. The lounging area around the back facing the ocean is great for watching the sunset. Although this unit has a tiny balcony, I found the traffic noise from the road did not make it enjoyable to sit there, so I went around to the ocean side.
Honokawai gets more rain than Kihei but it has a nice neighbourhood feel whereas Kihei feels like a strip mall. However there are 4 beaches with lifeguards on the Kihei side of the island. When high winds come up, swimming can be dangerous in the Honokawai area and yet be safe in the Kihei area.
There is a bus stop almost in front of the property if you don't want to rent a car. The Farmers Market is within walking distance and I also walked to the Times Supermarket which is a bit farther. If you do rent a car, the Safeway at the Cannery Mall is the best source of everything including organic and alternative types of items.
Overall this condo is comfortable and in a good location. It is good value for the money but not as "updated" as described. If the owner changed the carpet and the kitchen counter top, I would give it a higher rating.
My husband and I visited Maui for the first time with our 2 year old and had an amazing time! We were very pleased with this condo and felt the photos and description were accurate. The bedroom has a quality mattress and bed with a fan overhead to keep you cool. The window has a fabulous view of the ocean where you can watch the sunset and it allows you to hear the sound of ocean waves crashing against the rocks as you sleep. Dresser and closet provides ample space for storing clothing and such. This condo came with a pack n' play which is great because our daughter slept soundly on this.
The bathroom is very clean and the shower has great water pressure. No complaints at all about the bathroom. The owners have thought of everything by providing hairdryer, nail polish remover, shampoo, conditioner, etc. Towels were provided along with extra towels under the sink. There are also beach towels in the condo, along with a beach mat, 2 beach chairs, 2 boogie boards, an umbrella and more. Very thoughtful of the owners!
The kitchen is spacious and pots, pans, knives, dishes, utensils are provided. Dishwasher works well. Small ants are very common in the area of Maui so be careful to not leave any food or crumbs out that might attract ants. We were careful to wipe the countertops clean after seeing some ants the second day.
The living room is spacious and has lots of natural light from the huge windows overlooking Parking Lot A with a view of the mountains in the background. No problem with noise at all. The curtains can be drawn, but the sliding glass doors allow a nice breeze through. The TV has cable so you can channel surf away. The wireless internet was smooth and we didn't have any problems once we were connected. A relaxing condo offering everything you would need at home.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
We stayed pretty much whole August in this condo and that was fabulous! We stayed on mountain side but looking nice wide view of mountain was also spectacular. There is a small swimming pool attached to the condo so it also gives great opportunity to kids enjoying the stay. Like it says, everyday sunset is gorgeous and many times, kids enjoyed meeting with turtles just in front of condos. My family stayed more than 20 days but trully thought that staying this condo is just much better than staying hotels. It simply gives you just right feeling to spend long vacations!
We did not use air conditioning even once because breeze was just comfortable.
Clean, newly remodeled unit. Great communication and quick responses from owner/property manager. Would stay there again and have recommended to family and friends.
Golf: There are plenty of golf courses on Maui. Kapalua (3 courses) , Ka'anapali (2 courses) , Wailea (3 courses) to name a few resort courses. You can call them for fees and tee times. A good public course is Sandalwood in Waikapu (the other side of the West Maui Mountains) . Another is The Dunes at Maui Lani 873 0422. The Dunes is a links style of course and can be tough, but still a lot of fun. If you didn't bring your clubs, do NOT rent at the courses. I made that mistake once to the tune of $50 for the day. West Maui Sports and Fishing Supply on Front Street in Lahaina has very reasonable day and weekly rentals. Note: The rental manager is affiliated with Maui Lodging Properties, LLC (a rental management company) in the State of Hawaii
