Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Live Aloha in my dream home on the sea!!!!!!!!!!! You deserve to vacation here!!

Aloha and welcome to 'Livin the Aloha Dream'. Imagine vacationing on the edge of the ocean! From the lanai, all you see is the ocean, islands of Molokai and Lanai, palm trees, beaches, whales, sea turtles, sailboats, paddle boarders, windsurfers, parasailers, and last but not least rainbows. The magical sound of the waves will be music to your ears as you fall asleep. Watching the sun set between the islands is mesmerizing. Rainbows are breathtaking as the sailboats sail through them. Watching whales breach and spout from the lanai is a sight you will hold in your memory forever.

Kahana is nestled between Kaanapali and Kapalua and only a ten minute drive to Lahaina. There is a beach adjoining the property and there are many restaurants within walking distance including a coffee shop, health food store and farmers market. 'Livin the Aloha Dream' is a private get-away and hidden treasure from the hustle/bustle of the high-end hotels where you can kick back and enjoy your vacation your way - with Aloha!

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

About Cheryl Caleca

I have considered myself an island girl since I lived on the north shore of Oahu for ten years many moons ago! What a great way to spend my twenties as I attended the University of Hawaii. My quest to see the world after college took me to new jobs in San Francisco and Germany. Returning to the U.S., I worked for an Anheuser-Busch distributor for twenty five years before moving to San Diego to retire on my sailboat. I traveled to many countries including Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe but I always kept coming back to Hawaii for my 'happy place'. Wanting to own a slice of this heavenly island has been a dream of mine all of my life. Last year I made my dream a reality and bought this gem of a condo. I completely renovated the whole condo and started from scratch making it my home to someday live in.

I am currently living on my 49' Beneteau sailboat in San Diego and plan to vacation here in Maui several times a year during my retirement. To me, there is nothing in the whole world better than rejuvenating my Aloha Spirit and Livin the Aloha Dream in this heavenly slice of earth.

Cheryl Caleca purchased this condo in 2013

Why Cheryl Caleca chose Maui

'Livin the Aloha Dream' is simply what it says ... livin my dream and hopefully livin your dream.

I hope you will chose my amazing condo and live the dream with me a - a dream of a lifetime one dream at a time!!!

What makes this condo unique

This top corner unit is quiet, private and new. As you walk in the door, you will immediately feel a sense of calmness come over you as you go straight to the lanai and awe in wonder of its aqua marine beauty.

The lanai has comfortable seating for four and a dining table and chairs. It has lanai shades to pull down and clip on the rail if the afternoon sun gets too hot for you.

I added a large closet and built in drawers for your clothes. You can just 'move in' for your stay! You don't have to live out of your suitcase and step over your 'stuff'.

Another added feature is a safe for your passport, extra cash and jewelry. It just makes us feel better to lock our valuables away.

A keyless door entry alleviates you carrying a key with you.

A full size refrigerator and stove with oven will allow you to cook at home - only if you want to!

Having a washer/dryer in the unit as well as an air conditioner and dishwasher will make your vacation a real vacation. Who wants to 'rough it' on vacation? Not you!

Overall, I am in love with this unit and know you will be as soon as you see it. Maui No Ka Oi means Maui is the best. My motto is Livin the Aloha Dream No Ka Oi.

Loved our stay !

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for my daughter and I . It was clean , well equipped and beautifully decorated . We had amazing time . There's not much more I can say that hasn't already been said by others but to share how kind and accomadating the caretaker was. On the day of our checkout there was a tropical

Storm warning and the weather was pretty bad . Our flight didn't leave till that evening but they let us stay as long as we could without extra charges . Mahalo ! We will definitely be back !

Perfect condo with amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Cheryl's condo for our 10 year anniversary trip. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to call home for the week! Cheryl has thought of everything -from the fully equipped kitchen, to the washer/dryer, to the beach necessities...it was all provided! We also appreciated the binder full of menus and recommendations for various things on the island (shopping, restaurants, activities, etc). The condo is decorated beautifully - it looks like a page out of Pottery Barn! The view of the ocean is breathtaking and waking up to the sound of the waves was so peaceful. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai most mornings - it was a better view than any beachside restaurant! The location of the condo is great, as it is within walking distance or a very short drive to several beaches and restaurants. Maui has definitely become my happy place and when I think of paradise, "Livin the Aloha Dream" is what comes to mind! I cannot wait to return! Thank you, Cheryl, for sharing your amazing condo with us!

Relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this gorgeous condo at the end of May 2016 and couldn't have been happier with everything. I feel like a broken record with everything the other reviewers said, but it's all true. Cheryl was easy to communicate with and was prompt at answering any questions we had. I appreciated the full size fridge which made eating in really easy. Everything was clean and in such great shape. It's decorated beautifully, and I noticed new details each day we were there. We watched the turtles every morning on the lanai while eating breakfast. Neighbors were quiet, so we really felt like we were on our own. It's a short drive to Napili and Kapalua Bay which made it really easy to venture in and out. When we come back to Maui, we will definitely stay here again. Thanks, Cheryl!

Breathtaking view! Beautiful and comfortable accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation I have ever taken. The condo was wonderful. The location was amazing, not in the middle of all the big resorts but in a quiet little area. The feel of the condo was so comfortable it was like being at home. When I return to Maui, if it is available, I will stay there again. The owner, Cheryl, was very nice and always available if I had any questions or concerns. The view off the balcony was amazing. It was near enough to have the convenience of everything we needed on vacation. My daughters had a blast and said they could imagine themselves living there when they "grow up". Thank you for the great experience.

Above and beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a Cheryl's "Livin the Aloha dream" for 9 days. The condo was everything that you see in the pictures, and more. It was the perfect place to celebrate our 30 year wedding anniversary. The view was spectacular, morning coffee and breakfast on the lania, evening sunsets every night. Were just a few of our favorite things. We will be back next year.

Notes:
The condo's renovation was completed in June of 2014 with all of my special touches of design. This beautiful condo is somewhat modern yet has a comfy beach and coastal feeling. Everything in the condo is new including walls, floors, bamboo ceiling, cabinetry, bathroom, kitchen, living area, lanai and furnishings. The view is breathtaking - you can literally throw a shell in the water! It is now ready to share with you!!! State of Hawaii Transient Accommodations and General Excise Tax License W53540445-01
