Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Ocean front 2 Bedroom /2 Bathroom Sleeps 4-5

Direct ocean front: this amazing condo sits just 40 feet from the ocean with 180 degree panoramic ocean views looking out to the neighboring islands of Molokai and lanai. Renovations were completed September 2013.

The two bedrooms are private with a king bed in the master and queen in 2nd bedroom. The master suite has a 32' tv, desk area, and a separate dressing area from the walk in shower. The second bedroom has a queen bed.

In winter and early spring you can watch the whales right from your two private lanais- one off the living room and one off the master bedroom. Enjoy your morning coffee while reading a good book in a lounge chair on the grassy ocean front lawn or watch the turtles feed from the reef in front while having an afternoon cocktail on your lanai. You are in the perfect location to see every beautiful maui sunset! You will be lulled to sleep with the sounds of the ocean waves and wake up to a most amazing view.

The nearly 1000 sq. Foot of island living space boasts high quality furnishings and custom finishes throughout. It is fully furnished for all your vacation needs. The living room has a 42' hd tv with extended cable and complimentary wireless is offered in unit. An i-pod dock allows you to play your favorite music. FREE long distance calls US and Canada.

Your kitchen is fully equipped and ready to prepare your own meals.

Although there are many great snorkeling spots around the island, you can swim and snorkel right out front!

Paki Maui is a small ocean front complex on the west side of Maui conveniently located minutes from the heart of Lahaina town, between Ka'anapali and Kapalua. Right next door is the Honokowai beach park where the kids can enjoy the beach and playground. You are walking distance to farmers' market, grocery stores, restaurants, and a beach front board walk from our condo. You can relax on property your entire vacation and never have to drive anywhere or take advantage of the many things to do on Maui- upscale shopping minutes away at whalers village, hiking the ocean trail in Kapalua, diving, paddle boarding, wine tasting upcountry,& zip lining, just to name a few.

Paki Maui offers guests a small pool, hot tub, and barbeque area including patio area to dine pool side. One unassigned free parking permit given at check-in.

About Owner/Property Manager Ellen Gerl

We fell in love with the tropical feel of Maui from the first time we visited 20 years ago. When we had the opportunity to purchase a vacation home there was no question it would be the West side of Maui. Elaine & Chris are from Wisconsin and Ellen & Bob from Oregon. We know you will love our little part of paradise here at Paki Maui 201 while we are on the mainland!

Owner/Property Manager Ellen Gerl purchased this condo in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager Ellen Gerl chose Maui

We narrowed our search to the west side of Maui after spending time in other areas of the island over the last few years. We were excited when we found this unit at Paki Maui. Paki Maui is a small 4 story resort with beautiful ocean front grounds, a tropical garden, pool, hot tub, and barbeque area large enough to entertain. Our unit is directly ocean front with 180 degree unobstructed ocean views looking out at Molokai and Lanai. Having two private bedrooms and two seperate lanais was a big selling point for us. While there are many great snorkeling spots on the island, we love being able to walk right out in front of our unit to snorkel. We enjoy sitting on the lanais in the late afternoon watching the turtles swim and feed off the reef.

What makes this condo unique

*Ocean front grassy lounge area

*Two separate direct ocean front lanais

*views of Molokai and Lanai

*Snorkeling right out front

*Whale watching right from our Lanai at Whale season

*FREE unlimited long distance phone US and Canada

*Walking distance to Farmers Market and restaurants

Guestbook comments from the owner

We certainly enjoyed our stay. Your place is gorgeous and your kitchen is supplied with almost everything one could desire – we didn’t have to buy spices or tools.

The condo is lovely and the recent updates have made it beautiful. The doors and screens work flawlessly. The maid service appeared on schedule and did excellent work.

We were reluctant to rent it again until we had had the opportunity to stay there. Now we wish only that we could have rented it for next February also.

The lawn in front of the building is perfect and there are more than adequate recliners.

We stay ocean front to see the whales and to listen to the surf. We came home with many pictures of humpbacks. The only down side is the intense crashing of waves at high tide. On a few nights we had to close the doors to sleep.

Great Location, Fabulously Updated Condo.

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained condo with Fabulous views of Ocean, steps away from swimming, snorkeling and beautiful sunset. Minutes away from shops, restaurants and tourist attractions. Could not be happier with our decision to stay here with our family, much better than being in a high rise hotel!. Owners were easy to work with as well.

Paradise Awaits You

  • 5 of 5

This condo and location can't be beat ... and I've been to West Maui many times. The unit was absolutely gorgeous and exactly as shown in the photos, and the VIEW from the two large lanais was breathtaking! It was also very warm during most of our stay but the ceiling fans in every room kept us very comfortable. The condo was impeccably clean, had high-quality linens, and so beautifully decorated. Across the street is a market filled with lots of local fresh fruits/veg, as well as my favorite vegan foods. The rock formations directly in front of the property create a large protected "lagoon", which was a wonderful surprise for me because I'm not a good swimmer but I thoroughly enjoyed being in the ocean here every day. We will most definitely be back. Mahalo!!

Owner's Response: Aloha Alison, Mahalo for the wonderful review! I hope you will be able to return soon. I agree it is nice to swim out front between the two reefs and I see you found the vegetarian Market across the street by Farmers Market. Aloha, Ellen

Slice of heaven - so relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo! Everything was as pictured. Great layout & amenities. Two ocean front lanais with the perfect vantage point for watching sea turtles play on the reef all day, and the beautiful ever changing vistas of the islands of Lanai & Molokai as the sunlight and clouds interplay throughout the day to create rainbows, vivid swirling surreal ocean colors, and gorgeous sunsets. The farmers market across the street was super convenient for local fruits and homemade breads. We also enjoyed being able to walk along the beach in the mornings and evenings, with low tide giving access to even more coastline. This is our favorite section of the island, within a few minutes drive north or south to amazing snorkeling locations and delicious dining options. We will definitely be staying here again.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 11 amazing days in this clean, beautifully decorated condo. it is just what you see in the pictures. We were there at an extremely hot time and with the doors open it helped to keep the breeze going. The pool was great, it was refreshing and at times you had it to yourself. Many people cooked on the grills located right next to the pool. Tables were there to eat at or your place was close enough to go back to the condo. The best part were the sunsets from the 2 lanais. Each night we would watch the sunset, listen to the ocean and take lots of pictures. We also liked that the building was set back away from the street so you were away from the chaos and congestion, we didn't hear traffic. We loved your place and will tell our friends about it :-)

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family visits Maui almost every summer and try and stay at different locations each time. We found this condo clean, well equipped, and is located in a very centralized part of West Maui convenient to just about everything.

Great views from both the living room and separate master room lanai's. I would say that this very cozy unit is perfect for a couple or family of four and would not disappoint as it is well represented in the VRBO photos.

The owner was a pleasure to deal with every step of the way and did everything needed to make sure that our stay was pleasant. Leaving Maui is always tough especially when you are staying at a place that makes you feel like home!

Owner's Response: Aloha Michael It was also a pleasure communicating with you during your stay also. We appreciate conscientious renters like you. Be sure to request a discount on a future stay/ that is if you decide to repeat our condo rather than trying a new place. Aloha Ellen

We had a wonderful stay! The condo location was close to everything we needed...and away from the chaos and congestion that can be found in Lahaina. The view of the ocean and sunsets made the 2 lanais magnets for us. We snorkeled just off the property and sea turtles were within view of the condo. The kitchen was well equipped and we kept finding thoughtful and helpful items...even a CD for navigating our trip through the "Road to Hana".
