3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths with Awesome Ocean and Neighbor Island Views

We wanted a second home on Maui and thought why not? – let's make this a vacation home for others to enjoy as well! Kevin grew up partly in La Canada, California and partly in Hawaii on the island of Oahu in the Kahala area while his father was a cameraman on the original Hawaii Five-0. He is a professional photographer of 35 years as well as a Realtor/Partner with John and sister Marion in The Fairbanks Group at Coldwell Banker. Ray is from the mid-west 'Indiana' and although home base is now California it is even tough to keep him off Island! John spent several years overseas in Germany with his family but calls Southern California his first love; he was raised a beach boy! Maintaining his successful real estate career in So Cal for more than 25 years (BTW - he will sell your house on the mainland and get you into a home in Maui; he decided it was time to begin a new life adventure! So here we are...without pets; our second home does not allow them. Our first home is resplendent with them! When not in our Kahana home, we live in Altadena, California close to Pasadena - home of the world famous Rose Parade and Rose Bowl and amazing architecture.
John purchased this Condo in 2012
Why John chose Lahaina
Perfect location for our favorite restaurants in West Maui. Love the uniqueness of the property with only 16 units right on the water away from the hustle bustle of the big resorts. Would love to live here full-time someday! During 'Whale Season' the view is spectacular...you can almost feel them on our lanai! In addition we have a rack for Kayak storage that is exclusive for our home and available for your enjoyment!
What makes this Condo unique
Ocean and island views from almost every room. Steps from the ocean. Private Paddle Board, Kayak or Surfboard storage; we have one designated rack to protect your equipment!

Great location and nice spacious unit. We loved that in lower tide the kids could just go to the beach in front of the condo. The pool was a great amenity to have as well. Overall a great place to have stayed.
When we arrived it was late at night but the next morning, when we looked out on the balcony the view was amazing! We felt so at home and this home had everything you need for a trip to Maui and more. We enjoyed beach days with nice chairs and equipment that were made available, that was the best because it made it easy to start snorkeling early in the morning! The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful and we would love to come back someday. Just an amazing place in Maui! Thank you John:)
WOW This is a fantastic property!
Our family of six adults, one child, and one baby were at this condo from July 26-August 3, 2019. We very much enjoyed ourselves. The property overlooks a pool and has an ocean view. It is located near some great beaches and not far from good restaurants. The condo was exceptionally clean( very important to the wife) and tastefully furnished. It was spacious enough that we did not feel crowded. We also appreciated the available beach items such as beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, and coolers. Since there was a baby we also appreciated that a pack and play, high chair and baby bath were available for use. The kitchen is fully furnished to cook a family meal. There are bar-b-ques at the pool to use. We want to thank the owners for the prompt responses to our numerous questions about the property prior to our trip to Maui. We had a great time and the condo and its location played a great deal into making our trip a success. The family's only regret was we had to leave after one week. TCCOOK family.
Great place to get away
Everything you need is here. There are only 16 condos on the property which makes it very nice. We were able to relax and enjoy all that Maui had to offer.
This was an amazing place for a 3 generation get-away! I cannot say it enough that the location, amenities, and hospitality were absolutely 5 Star. Our host, John, was beyond accommodating. The kitchen is indeed very well stocked with any cooking utensil you might need and we cooked every day. The supply closet with the toys was incredible... top quality snorkel gear, chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Plush beach towels for the pool and beach. The "emergency" closet had all sorts of fun and useful items (we did replace some of the items we used and left some others!)
Without hesitation we would rent this again!
When we travel we love to share local places with others, so here is the lowdown:
--"The Coffee Shop" in Napili - excellent coffee (try the blended coconut mocha with coconut milk).
-- Snorkel Bob's on Hoohui Road (just about a minute from the condo) had a great selection of excursions they will book for you. Monroe helped us both times we stopped in and was helpful and friendly.
--PacWhale Foundation dinner cruise was super! Great food, drinks and servers all hold biology degrees of some sort, and can answer questions about marine life, etc.
--If you are going to the road to Hana, stop in Paia at "Paia Bay Coffee & Bar". A bit hard to find, but worth it.
Again, if you are going to do the road to Hana, start early... we were out the door of the condo at 6am and at Paia Bay Coffee by 7am when they open. We were ahead of the crowds the entire day.
Stop at The Garden of Eden, it is worth the $15 per person entry fee.
Also, we looked at buying the CD or an app for the iphone. We went with the app "GyPSy Guide"...cost $5.99 and was amazing. Hooked it up through the car speakers (have a charging cord!!!)
We came to Maui for a family reunion. The condo was very nice and everything we wanted and more.
Perfect location between historical Lahaina, Kaanapali - Continuously named America’s Best Beaches by Conde Nast and Kapalua - recognized as one of the top ten golf resorts in the world.
