Overview

About the property

Breathtaking views from ALL Bedrooms and living Room.

Never have you stayed in a condo such as this. There is a wall of glass so you have a panoramic view of the ocean and beyond!

Maui has been consistently ranked as the 'Best-Hawaiian Island' and '#1 Island Destination' by the readers of Travel & Leisure or Conde Nast for over a decade. Centrally located off-the-beaten-path retreat. Just ten yards from the water and with sweeping multi-island views across Maalaea Bay from both bedrooms and the front room balcony, our third floor piece of paradise offers the relaxed, yet elegant, quiet side of island life.

The warm, caressing Trade Winds make West Maui's low humidity weather unfailingly sunny, warm and comforting. Picture yourself dining on your balcony gazing at the near by Molokini Crescent rising out of the blue Pacific and noticing a pod of Humpback whales; or scanning near shore for turtles as they rise for an early morning snack; or walking along a warm ocean and suspending time simply to listen as the waves toss laughter into the air; or lounging together on a sandy beach or around a spacious pool overlooking a blue tropical ocean; or hearing the surf as you fall asleep and waking to it. The simplicity of this genial, peaceful and romantic setting brings people back to our home-away-from-home year after year.

Your vacation home is located on the western side of Maalaea Bay, the quiet side, across the bay from the tourist-dense Kihei area; just 20 minutes from Kahului Airport. We have made an effort to anticipate our guests' needs and make them feel at home in fresh and clean surroundings.

If needed, weekly cleaning services can be arranged.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful condo, so nicely equipped. And what a view!! It was such a treat to be right on the waterfront but also have the privacy we were hoping for. Your condo is truly a gem and we will always cherish our memories of this trip here.



We took Barbara's recommendation about the Maui fishpond. It was wonderful!



We also enjoyed Kula and all the smaller towns on the Island!



Mahalo and God bless you.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Everything is perfect. We enjoyed our stay very much. The condo is exactly as described. We arrived to a clean home with all the comforts of home. Super location. Barb let us know she lived on the premises if we needed anything, which I thought was very nice, but she never bothered us.

Barb- I hope to be fortunate enough to stay in your beautiful condo again. If so, I would love to meet you. :). Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

This was perfect for us!!

  • 5 of 5

We were here for the wedding of a niece and had charge of our 86 year old parents - one who needs a walker to get around. This place was absolutely perfect for them. They sat on the lanai for hours - watching for whales(we saw several) and turtles ( there were lots of those too!) The view is spectacular and the wall of glass is truly that! The rooms are spacious - the kitchen is equipped OK - there are no baking pans except a muffin tin and the knives could use sharpening. But there is a luggage scale that came in handy! Barbara was available to answer our questions. The elevator was not very reliable, but the stairs are easily accessed. (The elevator did break down as we were leaving so we had to carry luggage for five and get Grandpa down several flights of stairs. It was also out of order when we came back one evening, again resulting in an arduous climb for Grandpa. Going up is easier than down for him!) In all we were very pleased - it is clean and spacious and the location was centrally located as the wedding was in Kihei and we had some festivities in Lahaina. If you have to get to Lahaina, make sure you give yourself plenty of time, especially in the late afternoon. We went earlier and it took us 20 minutes. We went later and it took well over an hour-almost missed our bachelorette sunset cruise! So go early! Beach Bums and Seascape had good food. A 10 minute drive up the road took us the the Maui Tropical Plantation - The Mill House is pricy, but amazing! And the plantation is fun. We also visited the Sugar Mill Museum just up the road. The General Store is cute, although the coffee was not great and the creepy Halloween wolf at the door was a little weird. We were told that the aquarium is excellent but didn't have time to check that out. The lawn below the condo is a great place to sit. If you want a sandy beach, a short walk to the end of the road leads to a little park and miles of sandy beach. LOTS of turtles everywhere! In all this was a perfect place for us and we would definitely come back and highly recommend it!

Gorgeous views, amazingly well-stocked, central location for driving

  • 5 of 5

Entire family loved this place!

THUMBS UP:

- Kitchen has everything!

- In fact, this place overall has everything... if you need or want it, it's probably there (boogie boards, books, extra toilet paper, etc.)

- Helpful welcome email and in-house notes

- Kind and flexible owner

- Outstanding AC

- Very large balcony

- Convenient to harbor and cute/tasty shops

- House feels spacious, is well-appointed with tasteful art and comfortable furniture

- Maalaea is a short drive from lots of great stuff in Maui (stores, restaurants, dive shops, etc.)

NITPICKS / CAVEATS

- Wifi seemed a bit pokey/fussy

- No free HDMI inputs on living room TV

- 2nd bedroom bed suboptimal for those who like firm mattresses

- Beach not swimmable (but can walk 10 minutes for that, and tons of awesome beaches are a short drive away)

- Maalaea is, as many have noted, a particularly windy region of Maui (but it's a warm wind, of course).

---

This was a great place to start our Maui vacation. The views are truly breathtaking every hour of the day, and we appreciated that the owner was responsive and thoughtful throughout. Highly recommended!

We love Milowai!

  • 4 of 5

We had stayed in this building before but wanted to get closer to the water. This unit does not disappoint, the highlight every day was watching the turtles from the lanai! The proximity to the harbor was great as we took two charters out that week and it is not even 3 minutes to walk there. Beach Bums is a great place to eat as well and nice that you don't have to drive. When we got to the condo we were impressed with the cleanliness and the welcome basket from Barb. The unit is well equipped with great appliances and new bathrooms and all the extras that you could ask for. We would definitely come back to this unit again. Thanks also Barb for accommodating our late check out as our departure was not until 11 pm!!! Your response time with questions is also super fast!

Turtles in the Bay

  • 5 of 5

Ease of access to the highway allowed for easy travel around the island. Proximity to Lahaina and the Wailea beaches made this the perfect spot to explore and enjoy the island. The Pali trail is walking distance and one of the best views on the island.

Magnificent views of the bay are extraordinarily both day and night, with turtles and various marine life right outside your lanai.

Lots of space in the condo to relax and enjoy the gorgeous Maui evenings. Really comfortable beds, spacious showers and a washer/dryer combo that came in handy.

We enjoyed this condo so much we spent many evenings playing games and star gazing from the Lanai.

Walk up to our small harbor where you can take boats out snorkeling, on a sunset or reggae cruises, deep seas fishing and just about anything you can think about! Visit the Aquarium, a small water park with mini golf and some shops and restaurants....all a short walk from the condo.

At the other end of our quiet, dead end road is a 5-mile sandy beach....the longest walking beach on Maui....sometime you are the only one there!
