About Pat Braun

My husband and I grew up in the mid west and moved to California in the early 70's. We fell in love with Maui in the late 80's, which took us over 20 years to go back and purchase our piece of Paradise. We have in the last 3 years painted every surface, put in a tri-zone A/C system, new windows and slider, new woven wood window covering, tinted the windows to eliminate glare, pocket door for easy entry to the guest bathroom from living room, updated the kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops in the kitchen and bathrooms, removed the popcorn ceiling, and added new furnishings.

Pat Braun purchased this condo in 2011

Why Pat Braun chose Maui

Maalaea Kai is one of the nicest condo units on Hauoli Street. Breath taking sunrises facing the Haleakala Mountain. A quiet, tranquail and restful location with sugar cane fields behind us and the oceanfront out the lanai, are a perfect location to relax from the busy life styles of most individuals. This centrally located condo is within 10-20 minutes driving time to Kihei, Lahaina, Kaanapali, Wailuku, and Kahului.

What makes this condo unique

One will experience a breath taking view of the ocean from the Lanai. Relaxation begins immediately when you open the slider and see the beautiful, eye-catching, spectacular view directly facing the Haleakala Volcano and the calming ocean waves. Enjoy your morning coffee or tea on the Lanai with sensational sunrises. This couldn't be a better way to start your aloha day.

When dining out you will find culinary delights within walking distance from the condo at the the harbor, where you will see several nice restaurants.

Activities: Biking, snorkeling, golf, fishing, shopping, restaurants, swimming, diving, sailing, wind surfing, kite surfing, tennis, hiking, shelling, whale watching, ocean kayaking, churches, mini-golf, Maui Ocean Center/Aquarium, horseback riding, racquetball, fitness center, gym, wildlife viewing, museums, sightseeing, water-skiing, para-sailing, jet skiing, rafting.

Very kind owner

  • 5 of 5

This is not a review of the property as I never actually stayed there, but of it's owner, Pat. We booked with her for a 5 day stay, and then had "circumstances beyond our control" just 3 days after booking. I contacted her to let her know and within the week she had refunded our entire deposit, not just the part I was expecting. Thank you, Pat for the honesty and consideration!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband and parents absolutely loved the condo. Very spacious, quiet and cozy. Definitely a home away from home. Located in a perfect area. Close to just about everything you could possibly want. The condo patio has breath taking views. No complaints here. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind comments. Maui is a magical place. Our quiet, centrally located condo has some great views and a relaxing atmosphere. We are close to excursion trips out of Maalaea Harbor that has some nice places to dine. Hope you can book again soon.

Another great experience in Maui

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Pat's beautiful condo, which she continues to improve. Pat is a wonderful host and very helpful in answering questions and offering sightseeing and restaurant suggestions. The condo's central location in Maalaea gives the traveler short drives to Kahului, Lahaina & Kihei. The next time we return to Maui, we will not hesitate to book Pat's condo again.

Maalea Condo.

  • 3 of 5

Beautifully decorated condo. The biggest negatives were the fact that you had to keep waking up to reset the AC, as it would shut off after 4 hours and the fact that you only had a partial view of the bay due to the condo wall to the right. It was also the only condo that we rented through 20 plus years of renting at Maalea bay we have not had in unit laundry facilities.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately Raymond we have had renters go off and leave the A/C running. Our cleaning crew is not always there to turn it off so I am sure you would also have put a timer on the unit to keep electrical costs low. We did not advertise having a laundry unit in our condo. It says that in the written info that is on VRBO. Infact our condo association does not allow new laundry units on the 4th floor for newer owners. However, the public laundry for the 4th floor is less that 25 foot from the condo. As for the view we stated that it has a great view of Sugar Beach not the Bay Area. We have worked very hard on our condo to make it comfortable plus all the extras left in the kitchen, which you will not find in other condos in this area. It is with great regrets I allowed you to check in over 6 hours earlier without an additional charge.

A happy vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week. The area is quiet and relaxing as well as being convenient for going anywhere on Maui. We loved sitting on the balcony and being able to see whales in the bay. The condo is well equiped for cooking with not only the dishes etc but having spices too. It is nicely laid out. Pat was wonderful to deal and had seen to every detail in making our stay the best it good be.

Owner's Response: I am happy you could get away from the bitter cold in Michigan and were able to enjoy the great performances of the whales. Maui is a relaxing place especially the lullaby of ocean surf to help one drift off to sleep. We love to cook in when in Maui and enjoy making sure those who also like to do that have a well equipped kitchen n not have to run to store for the extras. Mahalo for renting our condo!!! Hope you can visit again in the near future.
