Lahaina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Paradise Awaits! Maui is an Island that delivers everything you want in a tropical vacation. Gorgeous scenery. Endless Golf. Spas to rejuvenate your mind & body. Romantic coves & beaches. All the seclusion or night life you might prefer, and friendly people everywhere!

Located in beautiful West Maui, 'The Pikake' is located directly on the ocean. You will have fantastic, unobstructed views of the Islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i. This is the very best place to be for those spectacular Hawaii sunsets.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ location for whale-watching, turtle-watching, swimming, snorkeling & boogie-boarding. Guaranteed to see Turtles resting & sunning themselves on our beautiful beach. There is a coral reef just a little off-shore which makes the beach calm enough for children to play.

Our new kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need to whip up a fantastic meal, or a casual snack. There is a grocery store just a short walk away. There is also a laundry room right on the grounds with brand new large capacity front load washers and dryers available for your use. We now have high-speed internet access. Bring your laptop, and stay in touch with friends & family back home.

Absolutely beautiful! You will want to make this Condo your home away from home.

About July Benson

July & Charlie Benson, Owners.

July Benson purchased this condo in 2004

Why July Benson chose Maui

We had been traveling to Maui for several years after honeymooning there in 1994.

We looked and looked for years, and finally found the perfect place in West Maui. There is no nicer property on the west side.

a wonderful gem right on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this one bedroom apartment that is literally right on the ocean .. we even had a couple of giant sea turtles swim in our back yard while we were there.

Everything was as described and everything was clean.

We will definitely come back !

Very good stay with some caveats

  • 4 of 5

This was a very good place to stay, and I think that we got a good value, but there were several issues with this place that made it less than perfect. All in all, a four star review is fair in my opinion.

The Positives:

+Waterfront, waterfront, waterfront

+ Nice location next to many places.

+Neighbors were all very nice.

+There were tons of turtles in the water directly in front of the condo. Very cool.

+Good parking.

+Good value.

The negatives

- Construction was happening next door. Although this is not the fault of the owner, it definitely detracted from the property. Jackhammering and excavation would start at 7:00 AM and didn’t end until the afternoon. You would be forced to close up all the windows (without AC) or deal with the noise. Hopefully they will be done in the near future.

- The condo had some signs of wear. Some examples of deterioration included rips in the curtains and a non functioning living room fan.

- The Wi-Fi signal was rather weak and did not work well in the bedroom.

- The owner’s email response time was pretty slow and/or sometimes non-existent. Texting appeared to be the best way to get a prompt response from her.

I have loved the West side of Maui and have preferred to stay up on the Napili shore. I have found a new favorite! It is perfect for my little family. July is awesome and so helpful. We will be back no doubt about it!!!

Wonderful location right off the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. The condo was clean and provided everything we needed during our stay. The best part was being able to wake up and jump right in the water. The neighbors were very friendly. The location is perfect, near the farmers market and Honokowai Beach Park (great location for snorkeling). My favorite part about the trip was swimming with the turtles and whale watching from the lanai. I would definitely recommend July's condo and will be staying here again in the future. Thank you July for sharing this piece of paradise!!

Never wanted to leave....

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maui and we were in total awe of the fantastic view! We had a wonderful time and to have the beach only 20 steps away was amazing. From the turtles to the beautiful sunsets it was very hard for us to leave after 3 weeks. July and Charlie made us feel so welcome and almost like a part of the family. We were in walking distance to an organic market, coffee shop, ABC store, bike rentals and more. We didn't have to travel too far for anything if we didn't want to. Totally recommend this place and we can't wait to make a return trip!

This was such a wonderful place to stay! It was quiet, clean, and the view was stunning. We had so much relaxing fun just sitting outside the condo and watching the activity. We saw a complete rainbow that lasted at least 3 hours along with turtles that came close to shore. My husband and I both have trouble navigating steps but with this condo, the parking was close to the building and easy to get to and from. Everything we needed was just a small distance away so we felt good about being able to explore the area. I guess the best recommendation is that if we have the opportunity to visit Maui again, we most certainly would stay here. We will have such good memories of this place. Thank you!
