Guestbook comments from the manager

Been to Hana many times but never saw the humpback whales cavorting and breaching right in front while watching from our deck. Totally awesome.

Did the north shore drive all the way back to Wailuku. Amazing!

Even better than pictured.

This condo is spacious and beautiful with great views. My family and I could turtle watch from the patio or the large window from the upstairs master suite. There was a great breeze that blew through at night. We utilized the pool and grilling areas which were good as well. The condo is right off the elevator which was very convenient and there are bag trolley's for your use if needed. The trash chute is a little further from the unit and there isn't a market close by, but the unit had some necessities and if there was something we needed, we found it at the harbor store which is just around the corner from this complex. The harbor store also has great coffee, pastries, and other cooked food items. Barbara was fantastic to work with. She responded quickly to emails and phone calls and everything was set prior to our arrival. I'm originally from Maui and was home to visit family and friends. I needed something that wasn't outrageously priced like the touristy hotels, but also clean and comfortable. This ended up being a perfect fit for me/us. I will definitely be staying here again on my next trip "home".

Loved the View

  • 5 of 5

I loved this condo. It was exactly as described and very comfortable. I loved all of the eclectic furnishings.The upstairs bedroom was amazing.

We loved sitting on the lani and watching the turtles near the sea wall and the whales breaching in the bay. I cant wait to stay in this condo again. My suggestion would be to bring binoculars during whale season.

The owner/property manager was great.

Perfect ! Excellent value!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable condo (absolutely conform with the advertising pictures). Amazing vue facing the sea with surfing athletes in front of your eyes. Very well maintained building and area (pool etc). Quiet and respectable environment.Well localized with good services (supermarkets etc in Kihei) near by (need a car).

Con : biting moskitos prohibiting dinner outside ( at least during our stay ); no direct access to a beach.

We were suppose to get just a one bedroom on the beach further down, but got moved to this beautiful penthouse. I was concerned, because it wasn't on the beach. Our origianl condo was, but no problem here, with the ocean front. I just loved the view from your couch, much less the balcony. You can hear the ocean and watch sea turtles right from your couch. Has everything you need in the kitchen, and the rooms and baths are better than being at the Four Seasons. Had laundry soap ,dishsoap,towels and a cooler for the beach! If you stay here, you will not be disappointed! So close to Kihei and Lahaina. Walk to the aquarium and Beach Bums and the General store. Both have really good fish tacos! Barbara is great and so is Malaaea!! The area is not touristy and people are so friendly!! Go to Paia for sure and Lahaina! Fun funky nice towns. Will definately go back again when the whales are there! Thanks Barbara!!!

Lacked Cleaning

  • 3 of 5

My adult daughter and I stayed here for a week the first part of November. The condo is exactly as shown and I really like the layout of the place. We have stayed in this area before. It is convienent to all parts of the island, but this area is always very windy. The grounds are well kept. I would have probably given the condo 5 stars, but unfortunately upon my arrival I found the condo to not be clean. We have stayed on Maui for 20 years and I have never had this happen before. I called the condo manager upon arrival and she instructed me to leave a note of all the things that needed to be done. I left an itemized note of very specific and VERY obvious things that needed to be addressed. She had the cleaning lady come back the next day and still nothing was done, everything was just as before. The cleaning lady insisted the owner had been there and said he would clean. It was very obvious that nothing had been done as there were hairs on sinks, on toilets, footprints from wet feet were beside the bed on the hardwood, loose dirt on surface of the rugs, stuff stuck on counter surfaces, etc. I ended up cleaning and mopping the entire unit before my daughter arrived. Even though I let the manager know that nothing was done after her efforts to get the cleaning lady to return, no effort was made to refund my cleaning deposit. I am not sure what was going on, but I obviously was caught in the middle and paid for something I didn't get which was a cleaned condo. As I told the manager, I would stay here again as I did really enjoy the condo, but not if there was that much cleaning involved! That isn't supposed to be what vacations are about. So the physical condo was not a disappointment, but for our visit the cleanliness was definitely a negative.

Owner's Response: Aloha, yes I agree--this condo is terrific, in a central place in a great location on Maui. I wish it were always windy--I just experienced 10 days of no trade winds and couldn't wait until they returned! It only gets real windy when the whole state in under a wind advisory. We most always have a great breeze that keeps you nice and comfortable. The surfers and whales entertain you right from the lanai. I am so sorry for these circumstances regarding the cleanliness of the condo. It was an extenuating circumstance. The owner of the condo was here before the guest arrived and thought he would help us by cleaning the condo. The best intentions soured. We immediately went into guest satisfaction mode and sent the regular cleaner over to address a list of items. Since the condo was empty when she arrived, she took the opportunity to re-clean everything whether it was on the list or not. She was willing to return again if needed. There is very high end flooring in this condo and we were having a challenge with the finish on the master bedroom floor. It cleaned well but was leaving current guest footprints on it until it was cleaned again so someone could easily think otherwise. After many tries to remedy, we have discovered miniwax is needed each time we clean! We have a owner with great pride in his condo wanting to make sure you have the best time sharing his home. We are willing do whatever is humanly possible to make your stay spectacular! Aloha.

Fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

I just came back from visiting Maui with my family. This was a wonderful condo, with outstanding views from both the master bedroom and the main floor. We kept the window opened at night and listened to the waves crashing, lulling us to sleep. The condo was very well kept and had a very nice kitchen for cooking meals in order to save some money. There is no place to eat inside, which isn't a problem for breakfast or dinner, but it can get a little toasty on the balcony if you are eating out there during the mid morning to afternoon...but honestly, we were always out during the middle of the day at the beach or doing activities, so it really wasn't a problem. There are some great local restraunts within walking distance in the marina that you need to check out. All in all, this was a great place, and if we return to Maui, we would rent here again with out question.
