About Vikky

It was love at first sight. Our first visit to Maui is with our toddler and our experience was absolutely fantastic. We fell in love with Maui and enjoyed every minute we stayed there. The time spent building sand castles, playing on the beach and quiet dinners watching the sunset (while the T-Rex is sleeping) made us long for Maui the moment we got on the return flight. Our two year old repeating 'Aloha' and calling himself 'Keiki' after coming home sealed the deal for us. We bought our Maui home to enjoy with our son and kids to come.

Vikky purchased this condo in 2012

Why Vikky chose Maui

We stayed in Maalaea before we bought the property and the convenience of the location cannot be overstated. It is centrally located and so we don't have to drive long with a squirmy monkey in the car seat. We chose Maalaea Kai for its exceptional views and access to Sugar Beach. Maui Ocean Center is where kids can have fun while learning about the unique marine animals and their habitats.

What makes this condo unique

Maui is a fun place for all ages. Maalaea Harbor is so close we can walk with kids to take snorkel trip, fish charter or dinner cruise. Maui Plantation is with-in few mins drive and it is beautiful place to learn about what grows in Maui. They have a cool zip-line for 5 year old too. Endless activities are available for both kids and adults alike. You can go Golfing, Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Kite Surfing or just kick back and relax and have a drink.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(Copied from previous listing for this property. http://www.vrbo.com/58258)



This condo is centrally located on Maui. Perfect to explore the island! The area where the condo is, is nice and quiet. The view from the lanai is outstanding, especially during whale season. Booking a whale watch, fishing, sunset cruise or many other activiities, is a nice 15 minute walk or very short drive away at Maalaea Harbor. The descriiption of the condo is accurate and working directly with the owner Mary, is a real pleasure. She is always available to answer any questions you might have. A 4 mile long beach starts right next door. This beach goes all the way to Kihei and is never crowded. The kitchen is very well stocked and we ate all our meals on the lanai. Eating out on Maui can get very pricey and having the full kitchen is great. Also, having the washer and dryer in the condo, is really handy, you don't have to take as many clothes. Whether you are here for a short stay or longer stay, this condo is just like home, but probably with a much better view. Stay here, you will not be disappointed.

We'll be back!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I greatly enjoyed the condo and location. Close proximity to the airport, Costco, the ocean center, and a few restaurants was appreciated. This fourth floor unit affords a wonderful oceanfront view and we enjoyed watching whales and marveled at all of the sea turtles right below us. The pool was scantly used and the outdoor grills were very clean and handy for grilling steaks and vegetables. We did call the owner with a question upon arrival and were pleased that she quickly answered the phone and our questions. The local contact Jennifer was very accommodating with a solution when we noted the DVD player was not working.

Condo was well equipped throughout, the complex overall was quiet and clean and we would definitely like to return!

Perfect for 2 couples or family with teen

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this condo was wonderful. Very clean. All the kitchen dish ware needed for grilling/ dining in. We ate all meals on the lanai while watching whales spout and turtles swim in the rock trench at the edge of the water. Grilling station and pool area clean and easy to access. Very good location to get to both Kehei beaches or Lahania. Loved having 2 bathrooms!

CONDOMINIUM COMPLEX IS VERY NICE.

  • 3 of 5

OUR EXPERIENCE WAS NOT VERY GOOD. WE FOUND CONDO ONLY SURFACE CLEAN WITH DUST, ETC. UNDER NIGHT TABLES, UNDER BEDS, BEHIND COUCH.

FLOORS AND WINDOWS AND SCREENS WERE VERY DIRTY. MY WIFE WASHED WINDOWS AND SCREENS TWICE AND LANAI FLOOR 3 TIMES. WE UNDERSTAND PROBLEMS NEAR THE OCEAN AS WE HAVE A HOME ON THE OCEAN. HOWEVER, THIS OWNER IS BEING MOST LIKELY CHARGED FOR "CLEANING" WHEN SOMEONE CHECKS -IN, CHECKS-OUT. CLEANING IS MORE THAN GOING OVER SURFACES AND CHANGING THE SHEETS.

FURNITURE AND CABINETS NEEDED REPLACEMENT. CONDO WAS WELL PAINTED AND BATHROOMS HAD BEEN UPDATED. I EMAILED THE OWNERS TELLING THEM ON THE THIRD DAY OF OUR STAY THAT THEIR CONDO WAS NOT CLEAN AND THAT I FELT THAT THEY WERE NOT GETTING A GOOD CLEANING FOR WHATEVER THEY WERE PAYING. I DID NOT RECEIVE A REPLY FROM THEM.

I WOULD NOT STAY AT PROPERTY ID 447292 AGAIN. THERE ARE TOO MANY OTHER CONDOS IN MAUI WHICH ARE MORE APPEALING AND CLEAN AS IS EXPECTED UPON ARRIVAL AFTER HAVING PAID TO USE THE FACILITIES.

Owner's Response: Hi Lionel, Sorry for your bad experience. Unfortunately, I did not receive your email. I think we were having email issues even before you checked-in. Remember, I had to send you the condo details through VRBO because you didn't receive any of my emails. If I had your email, I would have sent the cleaning team right away to take care of anything that you needed. That said, so far I never had any complaints about my cleaning team. I will work with them and see what went wrong for your stay. The winter season is a very busy month and we hardly get a day gap between each check-in. We will do a deep cleaning as soon as we get a break in the calendar. Thanks for giving your feedback.

Maui Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5

Pros:

-Overall condo was nice

-Great views and true to pictures posted

-Location is central to all locations in Maui

-Owners are very responsive to reservation and questions

Opportunities for Improvement:

-New Couch would be nice. The one there seemed somewhat dirty.

-Kitchen could use some updating but meet the need and worked just fine for what we needed.

-Would be nice to have shades that roll down on the lanai. It gets very hot in the morning and we could not sit outside to long for breakfast.

-Cleaning deposit seemed excessive, especially when guests are expected to clean everything, wash dishes, wash towels, etc.

-Check out time should be later than 10:30. Noon would have been nice.

-The garbage and recycle is on the other side of the building compared to directions given (just needs to be updated in email correspondence)
