Heaven in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Ma'alaea Gem

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect location and beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

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.

The condo was beautiful and the owner was a great guy to work with.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Ma'alaea Yacht Marina very much. The condo was beautiful, the on site manager Matt, was helpful and works hard to maintain a beautiful property. Low key place to stay, relaxing. Russ the owner was great to work with, and made the process easy. He actually refunded us a nights stay, because the condo was still being cleaned (due to a mix up) when we arrived. No problem, we just went and had a drink and were able to get into the condo within an hour. If you need a one bedroom, this is the one to rent. Until next time...Aloha

Great place to stay on Maui!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location on Maui. It was central to everything we wanted to do. The condo was great! The owner was super responsive and although we had no problems , it was great to know if we had experienced any issues the owner was quick to respond. The view is wonderful! A super quiet neighborhood in a great location on Maui. The condo was updated with a nice kitchen area and bath. The airconditioning in the living area and bedroom was needed as we had some hot days. Not many condos have A/C. My wife and I have used VRBO many times and this condo ranks among the best. Trust me, you will not be disappointed with this condo.
