Best stay in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the location and how quiet and safe the condo location was.

What most impressed us, however, was the cleanliness and attention to details. We are very clean, tidy, and organized and to find your location met every one of our standards blew us out of the water. You had extra towels, bedding, snorkeling and swimming gear, and even travel location guides all readily available.

We have already discussed coming back next year and want to stay again at your location.

Thank you for impressing us!

Great place, conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently celebrated our 10th anniversary in Milowai #105. It was the perfect condo! John and Nancy have done a great job remodeling and updating this place. It's not a huge condo, but spacious enough for two. The condo itself has everything you need, and then some. We made daily use of the well-stocked kitchen, the great hi-def tv & bluray player, and the beach supplies. We really liked the reserved parking off-street parking and the keyless entry to the condo. The location is wonderful, right next to quaint Ma'alaea harbor, which has activities, dining, and shopping. Be sure to check out Beach Bum's happy hours (good Mai Tais). The condo was really well taken care of and obviously cleaned by someone who knows what they are doing. We have rented various other condos through VRBO and it always makes a difference when the owners frequently use their unit. The Normans have made this place a perfect home away from home. We highly recommend this place!

Pleasant stay!

  • 4 of 5

This condo was very clean and incredibly well stocked. There were so many things we did not have to buy because they had everything there. Location was perfect! Pictures of condo are slightly misleading as there is a pool house blocking your view of the ocean. We also were not able to sleep in the bedroom because it was uncomfortably warm and had to sleep on the pull out couch the entire week. Pool was also closed for the majority of our stay. Owners were super sweet and were quick to respond to any questions and emails.

Great Condo, Good Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed this condo and the location was centrally located to drive to anywhere on Maui. It was very clean and we had everything we needed. The attention to detail and the cleanliness were top of the line. The location was out of all the traffic which was great but requires a rental car for sure. It's a very windy part of the island but you appreciate it at night. The owners are great and answered several emails with questions we had about the area and things to do. They generally responded in a couple of hours or less. There is no direct access to the beach, but if you are willing to walk a few blocks, there is a wonderful beach and not overly crowded at the end of the street that the condo is on. We plan to return to Maui and would definitely stay there again.
