Perfect location for anyone who wants to explore both south and west Maui. Condo was beautiful and quiet. We appreciated being out of the main tourist area but in short driving distance to restaurants, hikes and beaches. Beautiful view from the lanai and condo was nicely furnished and well-appointed. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend!
The condo was clean and very functional, but we had a very negative experience upon check in. This lack of attention to details makes it so that I cannot recommend staying here. A week before our arrival I emailed with the owner to understand how we would access the condo and was given an elevator and door code. Unfortunately, I was given the wrong elevator code, so that when my husband, 2 year old son, and I arrived late in the evening we were not able to access the condo. The host was on a plane so I could not get a hold of him and VRBO was not able to provide this information. We waited outside for over an hour trying different variations of the code until the crying of my 2 year old woke a neighbor who was able to provide this information. Other small details were also left unattended--the alarm went off really early our first day; we didn't think to check that it was on as that's not something we typically have to worry about. Another thing to call out is that some of the photos in the description are of areas around Maui and not the beach or area immediately around the condo.
My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at Russell's condo for the last week of March and first week of April. Our stay could not have been more perfect. I'll start with location: This was our first trip to this island, and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Ma'alaea is small but has all the essentials, perfect for people like us who truly want a vacation. There are great places to eat within a three minute walk (Beach Bumz has amazing food!). Tons of tours depart from the harbor right outside your door-no driving or parking. It took 10-15 minutes to drive to Kihei and Wailea and under 30 to get to Lahaina. The condo is on a private beach (never saw more than three people there at once) and every single afternoon about 20 or more sea turtles came in to the rocks on the other side of the beach and sometimes into the beach area! Beautiful! The beach is very sandy and is protected from waves by a rock wall-perfect for snorkeling or just lounging in the water. Now the condo: It's EXACTLY like the photos-you will not be disappointed! The polished floors are beautiful and cool underfoot. The stainless steel gourmet kitchen was a dream to cook in-everything is provided! The bathroom had a rainfall shower head and handheld shower-best of both worlds! Oh and the bed-probably the best sleep we both have had in YEARS! You aren't sleeping on cheap, scratchy bedding in this condo. The furniture is very comfortable and the center island is huge with four barstools that provide plenty of room to spread out and eat. The big screen tv was beautiful, although we never turned it on-who would with that view! We spent most of our time on the lanai literally watching whales breach from sun up to sun down. It was like a dream. Since you're on the top floor, you never hear anyone moving around above you and we never heard anyone next to us, either. It got very hot one afternoon and we turned on the a/c units, which ran perfectly and cooled the entire place very quickly. Russell thoughtfully stocks his condo with everything-beach chairs and umbrellas, snorkels and fins (no renting!), mats, even pods for the Keurig and laundry detergent! A binder in the condo is full of all sorts of useful information-above what most provide-which I thought was a really nice extra. This was such an enjoyable experience for us-we can't thank Russell enough for opening his home and allowing us to experience the magic of Maui, oceanfront! We will definitely be back! Mahalo!
Everything about this condo is as described and pictured. We have been coming to Ma'alaea annually since 2002 and have stayed at several of the facilities in this district. (Some good and some bad). This is hands down our favorite. It is exceptionally well appointed, super clean and very inviting. You certainly felt like your were expected and welcome in this place. Beautifully upgraded and cared for. Excellent kitchen and properly equipped to meet all needs. We love to go the local markets and cook most dinners and breakfasts in the condo. Not only does this save us lots of money, it allows us to linger and relax on the lani listening to the sounds of the ocean. The ACs work perfectly and quiet (only ran them for about 20 minutes one afternoon). The airflow passing through the unit was perfectly adequate to maintain a comfortable climate. The lani view of the ocean was great and the sheltered location of this lani made it very comfortable to sit on anytime of the day or night. We love sitting there to watch the sunrise and sunsets. We will certainly try to arrange our next trip to Maui with this condo's availability in mind. Highly recommended (except the week we are planning to be there, lol). Mahalo

This property was perfect! The condo is exactly as described and shown in the pictures... clean, well-maintained, and had everything we needed. The view is amazing! Sitting on the lanai, we were able to see whales and sea turtles everyday. I chose this property because it was centrally located on the island, and close to everything we wanted to do and see. (Close to the airport, luau, snorkeling, Road to Hana, grocery store, etc). Russell was very thorough in the information that he provided and answered our emails promptly. Not only would I recommend this property to my friends, but I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Russell for making our vacation perfect by providing an amazing place to stay!
My husband and I stayed here while visiting Maui for our honeymoon. We enjoyed watching the whales right from the balcony with the Binoculars provided in the unit; it was truly an amazing way to start every day! This condo was the perfect location, basically right in the middle of any place you wish to visit while on Maui. We had great communication with the owner as well, very easy to deal with. We highly recommend this condo to anyone visiting Maui.
