Picturesque views of the Pacific are yours the moment you enter Milowai 105.

This condo’s convenient location affords you easy access to the airport, shopping in Kahului, Lahaina, and Kihei and is walking distance to major attractions such as the Maui Ocean Center and Aquarium, whale-watching and snorkel tours, or sunset dinner cruises from Ma’alaea Boat Harbor. Walk for miles along the white sands of Sugar Beach, arguably the best beach in Hawaii.

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!

This condo was everything it said it would be.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as we had hoped it would be. Included everything you could need. The description was right on par. We have had exaggerated descriptions of places before, but this one was spot on. It was nice to have a Beach Bums walking distance away. Oh, and the happy hour is a must.

The bed was a delight. So comfortable. And big. Slept well each night.

Met Ashlee when we arrived. Such a sweet gal. Thank you for stating out our vacation with a smile.

Thank you for opening up your second home. You have done an excellent job in decorating and comfort, and at a reasonable price.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this condo and the location. It was very clean and we had everything we needed. We met some great condo owners next door.Fred and Bev and had several nice visits with them. The location was out of all the traffic which was great. We did have some very noisy neighbors two floors up,which is no fault of the owners,and something they can't control. They are great owners by the way 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 aren't too lazy to walk a few blocks,there is a wonderful beach and not overly crowded. All in all you can't go wrong with this condo. I would definitely stay there again.

Where to begin? John and Nancy's condo was perfect for our vacation! The attention to detail with the beautiful well equipped kitchen, comfortable king sized bed with ample storage in the bedroom, plentiful towels, beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, this condo has it all! Laundry in the unit is an added bonus. We explored Maui but also spent many days just enjoying the condo and the lanai watching the surf and the sea turtles. Very peaceful and relaxing.
