Picturesque views of the Pacific are yours the moment you enter Milowai 105. The unique oceanfront setting, just steps away from the beach, offers unsurpassed views of the bay, the islands of Molokini and Kaho'olawe, and the gently sloping silhouette of Haleakala Volcano. Enjoy superb whale watching in the winter months and sea turtle viewing year-round.
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.
No expense has been spared to make your Hawaiian retreat comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable. From the carefully chosen artwork, area rugs and granite counters to the hotel quality linens, a true escape from the everyday has been created just for you.

John and Nancy have vacationed on Kauai, Big Island, Oahu, and Maui, but they love Maui best, and particularly Maalaea Bay. They keep choosing Maalaea Bay as a place to vacation because it is quiet, serene, romantic, and relaxed. They purchased Milowai 105 in 2011 and have completely renovated it. They are active owners who are constantly upgrading their unit to make it a special vacation experience for their guests.
This is a well maintained condo. Not close to any popular tourist location but can get to most popular place whithin 20 to 30 mins by car.
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.
We had a wonderful time at the condo and would absolutely stay there again! We loved it! I appreciate the owner's attention to detail. The condo had everything we could have needed, and more. Great central location for exploring, close to everything! We will be back!
Bien situé, très propre et bien équipé. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour à cet endroit. Seul bémol, l'unité de climatisation est située tout près du divan-lit donc peu utilisable si quelqu'un y dort...
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!
About us. We are turning 70 and have used VRBO for 20+ years, everywhere we go. New York City, La Jolla, Outer Banks, Olympic Peninsula and so many places in between. Hawaii, last year too. We’ve probably stayed in 25 places. There are always issues. We are pretty picky; expect what is sold to us.
We'd spent eight nights on Kauai, and switched over to Maui arriving at Milowai 105 surprised at how immaculate and well designed the apartment is. We arrived early so walked to a great restaurant/bar, Beach Bums, no more than five minutes away for a relaxing lunch before move in. There are shops and other restaurants in that same close by area as well as a terrific aquarium. Walk everywhere and watch the boats in the harbor.
We returned from lunch and entered a hall to a king bedroom on the left (extremely comfortable bed,) left our bags to look over the place. The bathroom followed down the hall with granite and a large tub shower that provides tankless continuous hot water. Very nice. Throughout is the nicest wood plank style tile that extends out on to the lanai for a continuous flow. Nice touch.
The kitchen had EVERYTHING. Ever need something and ask what can we use instead? Not here. One of the best equipped kitchens we have seen in more than 20 years. Dishes/flatware are top notch and thanks for the dishwasher. A granite kitchen bar/counter faces the living room and the lanai. Very comfortable sitting area for nice tv viewing.
On to the lanai with a glass top table and four chairs plus two other chairs and small table. There are tons of coolers beach towels and best, a washer/dryer.
Ok so that’s the over view. I said above we are picky and we were a tad surprised there is a small changing room building for the pool that blocked some of the view of the shore line, not the water. There were no prior visitors comments, so I guess it’s us but we were surprised. John and Nancy had emailed us and we were pleasantly surprised they offset some of our rent which we didn’t expect. The view across the water to Kihei and Wailea and up Haleakala was spectacular, especially at night when the moon reflects off the water. Anyway, this minor obstruction was not ruinous, just a small surprise.
We used the close by grills several times and ate in. A nice extra. If you want a nice quiet place with ALL the amenities, consider Milowai 105. Perfect location and great apartment. Oh, Safeway is 20 minutes away as are the towns of Kihei and Lahaina. Great restaurants.
