04/04/2016 Great Time in Maui from 3/24 -31.2016

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice time at your condo. Very clean and comfortable for the three of us. The shower in the small bathroom fills with an inch or so with water, doesn't drain properly but no big deal.

We were eating lunch one day on your lanai looking for whales and one young whale repeatedly breeched out of the water a couple hundred yards offshore. We really liked the location , when it was quite windy on other parts of the island we came back and barely could tell it was windy on the lanai since it faces south instead of west. We happened to have friends staying at the Marriott Kaanapali and we spent one day with them they needed to go out at 6:30 am to get a place by the pool or the beach , or no spots would be available. Yours always had lounge chairs available. Also at the Marriott we had to park in a large parking garage not even close to the condo , but your parking space was right in front of your place. I would recommend your condo to friends. Thanks !

Just returned from a FANTASTIC stay at Ma'alaea Kai with family of 5 (three teen kids). First, this condo has a gorgeous view of ocean. The grounds are immaculately maintained. Condo is centrally located providing quick access to all parts of Maui. You can walk from the condo to Ma'alaea Harbor for snorkel, whale-watch, or dinner cruise. Ma'alaea Harbor also has a couple of restaurants so you can stroll down for a cocktail overlooking the ocean. Essentially, you are close to everything while being peacefully removed from hustle and bustle you'll find in other condo-congested areas.

The condo had everything we needed (beds for all, 2 baths, heated pool, kitchen, laundry facilities, gas grill, fans, ironing boards, 2 beach coolers, couple of beach chairs - and we donated a boogie board and sand toys to the standing closet collection). There was even a crock pot! Marlon (the owners' son) was wonderful to work with, returning calls/texts promptly. He even arranged to push back cleaning service on day of our departure so we could enjoy a bit more time by the pool. Thanks Marlon!

This was the perfect condo for our family! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Hope to be back soon! Aloha!

Not exactly paradise

  • 3 of 5

We encountered a number of challenges with this location. First the owner did not send us the lock box number prior to our arrival. We arrived with our car filled with luggage and could not get into the room for several hours. VRBO was no help. They told us to find a safe place, they would send an email to the owners, and call back in 24 hours to their safety division which was closed during these hours and would be 24 hours from now. Several hours later we found the owners phone number and their voice mail was full. We continued calling until we could reach them. Once in, we found the kitchen sink was dripping and its handle was broken off. A note was next to the sink identifying this and other problems in the unit. None of the problems had been corrected. It took three days for the sink problem to get corrected. The AC was not working well and later in our stay completely stopped. Took three days to get it corrected. Miserably hot. One of the main reasons we had selected this room was it had a washer and dryer in the unit. It did, but we could not use it. Instead we needed to go down the hall and pay additionally to do our laundry. They corrected their advertising information after we complained. The hot water tank did not heat enough hot water for a hot shower. If you wanted a tepid shower, you might get it before the water went cold. The owner was originally unsympathetic and curt to our not being able to use the kitchen for food preparation, but later apologized and did refund some of the money we had paid.

The view was very nice. The grounds were well kept. The location was central to traveling to the many sights on Maui and within walking distance of the Maui Ocean Center and the beach-side of the wildlife refuge. We bought the annual pass and spent many afternoons visiting the Maui Ocean Center.

It would have been a much different experience if the maintenance issues had been corrected prior to our arrival and the owner had been on top of providing arrival and departure information as well as sensitive to our inconvenience.

It was a great spot and comfortable- we could not find anywhere in condo where the internet access was listed nor what the phone number was at condo - but it was not important at the time- they should have all that listed on the wall someplace though!! grounds are wonderful - owner was very prompt.

surf lullaby

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better view, completely unobstructed. Sounds of surf day and night, protected patio for meals and relaxing. So close to the Harbor you can walk to snorkeling excursions and meals. Spotless grounds and unit. Fast internet for planning day trips and adventures. Well supplied kitchen. Would love to return.
