About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom + Bonus room, Oceanfront in Ma'alaea

Our condo is DIRECT OCEANFRONT, BEACHFRONT! You can't get any closer to the ocean than our condo! Maalaea village is a gem with its central location and its fantastic trade winds. They provide a cooling breeze that keeps the temperatures just right, we also have a timer controlled A/C just in case the cross breeze in the unit isn't enough for you. There are ceiling fans in every room also

From the lanai, gaze out and watch the sun rise over Haleakala (House of the Sun), the long dormant 10,000 foot volcano. Watch green sea turtles bobbing up for air and rolling in the surf, even sunning themselves on the beach. In the winter months (Nov-April) you will have a front row seat to breaching whales as they come back to the islands to give birth and nurse their young in the warm Hawaiian waters. In the summer months during a good south swell, you can watch surfers on the legendary surf break “Freight Trains”, the world’s fastest surfable wave.

Beautifully landscaped grounds with a heated pool will make any stress you have brought with you melt away. Slip into to the pool and enjoy the ocean view while you relax in the Maui sun.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and is fully equipped with cooking utensils, pots, pans, blender and all of the other basic supplies to comfortably enjoy cooking and eating in. There is also a great BBQ area oceanfront so you can enjoy the view while you cook up some delicious food!

Our Master Suite is styled to resemble a luxury hotel. We use 100% white cotton 550 thread count sheets, king size pillow top mattress king size pillows. You will be climbing into heaven after a day of exploring our stunning island.

Our bathrooms are beautifully tiled with a clean updated and stylish look. 100% cotton white bath towels and hand towels are of course provided. We do not provide wash cloths

Enjoy a meal on the private lanai or just sit out and enjoy the view with some Maui grown coffee.

At the end of our cul-de-sac is Sugar Beach, 3-4 minute walk from the unit, the longest stretch of sandy beach on Maui. 5 miles of secluded sand to walk, run and beachcomb. You won’t find any crowds here because access to the beach is protected from the road by the bird-filled-ponds of Kealia Wildlife Refuge. It is so amazing to walk this beach and literally feel like you have it all to yourself!

A 5 minute walk in the opposite direction takes you to Maalaea Harbor where you will find a small grocery store, deli, craft market, restaurants and the Maui Ocean Center (Maui’s #1 tourist attraction), the Pacific Whale Foundation, miniature golf, shopping and most of the ocean activities available on Maui (sunset dinner cruises, deep sea fishing, snorkeling tours & whale watching).

Centrally located Maalaea, makes getting anywhere on the island easy. 15 minutes from the airport, a 5 minute drive south and you are in the long village of Kihei and a bit further, the resorts of Wailea. Twenty minutes to the west is the old whaling village of Lahaina, with it’s magnificent Banyan Tree and shopping galleries. You couldn’t be in a better location to explore all Maui has to offer.

Other perks include:

~Beach towels

~Beach chairs


~Free parking

~Free WiFi

~Washer and Dryer inside the unit

~50" Flatscreen tv

Plan on packing personal toiletry items. Since we supply the initial supply of paper towels, toilet paper, and other dispensable items to get you started on your vacation, you should plan a trip to the grocery store to replenish these items, as you need them.

Did I enjoy our say....Not really. The view was beautiful and the beach, and grounds were beautiful.

  • 1 of 5

I can hardly believe that you have the audacity to charge this amount for this unit. It was in very poor condition. The walls were dirty, looked like they never were painted. There were knicks in the floor boards all over. The bathrooms were dated and in equally bad shape as far as paint and upkeep. The flooring had gaps in it which was due to poor installation. We have rented many condos and own a time share. NEVER have we been asked to supply our own dishwasher detergent, our own paper towels and toilet paper for a one week stay.

Three dishwasher pellets and one roll of toilet paper per bathroom does not cut it for six people. When we were using the pool and lawn area we were "accused of moving chairs out of their position." No regard for those of us who cannot sit in the sun all day due to skin cancer. The pluses though few were the clean pool, the great view and convenient walking to a little shopping area.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay in our unit. It is true our rates are higher in peak season as are everyone’s on island. We explain in our advertisement that we supply an initial amount of toiletries and after they run out you are responsible to purchase what you need. As far as the rest of it we never heard a word from you or a complaint from you during your stay which is puzzling. We state in our welcome book if you have any issues to please let us know immed and they are handled within 24 hours. The unit is as pictured and by stating it’s dated (redone in 2014) is something you chose from photos. It is exactly the same. Again we are sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay

Great location, nice unit.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we stayed at this unit and we absolutely love it. The location is perfect for whatever you want to do in Maui being 20 mins to Lahaina, 20 mins to Kahului and 20 mins to Kihei. The complex is quiet and great for relaxing and unit is designed tastefully. We hope to come again next year!

Cute condo, wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our group! We loved the location as it was in the middle of everything with a short drive to wherever you wanted to go. The pictures are a close representation of the condo yet I feel updated ones could be taken. We were under the impression there were 3 separate rooms but one of these rooms was a loft over the living room so privacy was a slight issue. There is only one window air for most of the condo which did a good job of keeping the main living area cool but the bedrooms were very warm. The one thing I feel could be better is that more household items should be available to the renters such as toilet paper, paper towels, soap and thoes such things. Overall, the condo really fitted our needs and provided us with a fabulous place in an excellent location to enjoy everything Maui has to offer!

Adequate but old, a bit dirty, and lots of gnats

  • 3 of 5

This place was adequate for our needs. The beds were very comfortable. The pool and spa was nice, and the view of the ocean was great to see. But when we walked in there were lots of bugs flying all over the condo and this continue throughout our entire stay. The bugs diminished as our week ended. We made sure all our food was in the refrigerator and garage thrown in the chute. This condo needs a paint job and extra cleaning, as it was dusty when we arrived. It had all the beach items we needed for the day at the beach. There was soap, shampoo, and a small amount of dish and laundry soap for two loads. Each bathroom had two rolls of toilet paper. The air condition was just a box instead of central air so it was very loud and hard to converse during meals. The upstairs bedrooms were stuffy and hot and there wasn't any drawers or closets in them. We ended up using the small bedroom for our suitcases and clothes. I would not choose to stay at this particular condo again, but did like the location of it. Next time I would hunt for a different condo in the same area.

Worst VRBO Experience Ever!

  • 1 of 5

We‘ve stayed in many VRBO homes and condos and this was the worst. I will say the view was amazing. That’s the only reason I gave it 1 star. That aside, there isn’t anything positive about this condo. The pictures make it look clean inside and it is actually old and in dire need of new furniture & painting. The washing machine is extremely loud. The A/C blasts directly onto the couch directly onto people sitting on it. If the living room was set up with appropriate furniture that wouldn’t be a problem. When lights are turned on in the kitchen, there are little ants all over the stove, sink and wall.

The most serious issue is that the toilets barely flush and the downstairs toilet wouldn’t even flush toilet paper without doing it 3 times. Seriously, the upstairs toilet is the only one capable of flushing properly. ANYONE THAT RENTS THIS CONDO NEEDS TO CLIMB STAIRS OR BE WITHOUT A USEABLE TOILET.

My daughter left a favorite shirt behind. We messaged the owner on March 2. The owner explained that she was waiting for housekeeping. Then she said she had to return from a trip. I had to ask 2 more times for the picture that she said she’d send. Today, March 14, I received a response saying that she’d send a photo when she returned from a trip. The owner then told me it would be $15 to ship. That seems high for a shirt to be sent, so I went to USPS and found that from Maui, shipping would be between $6.65-$7.15 for flat rate shipping. I forwarded this information to the owner and said I’d send a check. However she told me that it would be $15 to ship because “her staff’s time isn’t free. We are an extremely busy company and I apologize this isn’t the outcome you want but it’s the best I can offer at the moment.”. Seriously? This difference is something to split hairs over?

Given that we’d spent a LOT of $$ to rent the condo, with all of the obvious overdue repairs, combined with having to send repeated messages to get her to even respond about the shirt, frankly we had no reason to believe that she’d follow through with sending it back. We’ve rented from VRBO for years and have never been treated this way. The fact that the condo was rented with only one barely-functioning toilet, the kitchen was infested with ants, and the owner isn’t interested in working with customers and let us know clearly that guests aren’t worth her time, I don’t recommend this condo and suggest VRBO remove it from the website!

Pictures lie - Oldy moldy - Bugs included

  • 1 of 5

We've rented through VRBO for several years and have never experienced anything so disappointing. This unit is old, tired, unkempt and lacking basic necessities that are commonplace with other VRBOs.

The ocean view from the condo is spectacular & Ma'alaea Banyons common grounds are impeccable - the only reason for 1 star. Inside the condo was another story. Mold is visible in many areas and A LOT of ant-like bugs crawled around the kitchen area nonstop. The walls are dirty and in dire need of paint (do not believe the manager response that "they're plaster & supposed to look like that"). No - it's dirt & mold. The woodwork is the same needing repair & paint. The hall closet doors barely work due to rotted wood and broken hinges. The washer shakes uncontrollably (loud) & even the "Quick Wash 30 Minute" cycle takes 1 hr 45 min. Light fixtures are full of dead bugs. The furniture is horrible - stained, torn & dirty...think "thrift shop clearance isle".

The upstairs bathroom shower is adequately sized for a 5 year old. Getting into the refrigerator is difficult - count on hitting your head many times. The wifi didn't work inside the condo on either PC or Mac devices - one day we were able to get wifi on the lawn. There are barbeque grills in the common areas but no utensils are provided to actually barbeque with. Very limited storage containers for food.

Our party included 4 adults for 10 days. We were supplied 6 bath towels - no hand towels or washcloths. We contacted the manager & asked where the hand towels/wash cloths might be and received no response. Please see paragraph above regarding washing machine times...we didn't travel to Maui to wash towels daily. We ended up buying towels to get us through our stay.

Between the 4 adults on our trip, we've been to Maui a combined 10 times. Never have we experienced mold. Never have we experienced nonstop trails of bugs. Never have we had to buy towels.

We wish we could post pictures here to negate the pictures posted by the manager/owner. The advertised pictures are beautifully staged and do not depict the actual conditions of the unit.

Unfortunately we do not recommend staying here and will never return. Never have we felt dirty and looked forward to getting home.
