Very nice and perfect location

Coming fom Germany, I was the first time and only one week on Maui. Before arriving, Nikta helped me to organize my stay, for example to find and to book a fishing trip, which was a very exciting experience. The location in Maalaea was absolutely inviting and familiar from the first moment (I absolutely didn´t expect a welcome-basket!). Unit 219 is a completely equipped and clean household which was very nice decorated with flowers. A parking place for the rental car was included. Maalaea banyas is a good place to reach the different and interesting sights of maui because of its location in the middle of the island. From here, I started snorkling trips near lahaina and in the other direction to Haleakala and the eastern coast to the hana road. So I can absolutely recommend the appartment because of it´s central location for discovering the island and the most helpful owner, one can imagine. If I come back to Maui, it is no question where to stay.

Perfect vacation spot in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Maalaea Banyans ocenanfront condo #219 for 6 nights. This is in central area and it is so convenient to go around the island. It has unbelievable view and you can see and hear wave crashing onto the shore. We really enjoy having breakfast on the lanai, hearing bird chirping and wave gentlely crashing onto shore. Fortunately there is full moon during our stay. The view of the bay under the moonlight is so magical. The unit is well decorated and owner pay a lot of attention for detail. The shower floor is an piece of art. The owner Nikta is so helpful and friendly. She truly make this unit is home away from home. She welcome us with terrific fruit basket. She make you feel so welcome and connected. We can not ask for a better place to stay on Maui. We definitely will stay at the wonderful unit again when we come back to Maui.

Married on Maui

  • 5 of 5

We flew to Kahului from the other side of the world 🌍 (Vienna/Austria) and we found the wonderful and romantic ❤️ place on Maui 🐚, we ever could find! We had best ocean view, we could see green turtles 🐢🐢🐢 and whales 🐋🐋. The condo is soooo close to the sea, that we couldn't sleep well because of the rush and the waves 🌊 😉. No, it was so heavenly to sit on the lanaii and enjoy the breeze 😍. The view is spectacular! Every morning we could't believe that the 🌴🌴 palm trees blow gentle in the wind and the birds 🐧 twitter.

It's thanks to Nikta (the owner), that we had such a perfect vacation👌🏼. The fridge was filled with everything you need for a good breakfast (fruits, homemade banana bread, coffee, ...) 😳. If we needed help to get somewhere special, she replied immediatly or helped on the phone 📲

From Maalaea Banyans you have a very good point to get everywhere on the island and it is very, very quiet!!!

We married 🎩👰🏼 on Maui, so it was a very special vacation for us, but we know ... We will come again VERY SOON to live this ALOHA LIFE 😎 again, again and again! Mahalo Nikta 🌺

Wish You the best,

Christina & Klaus 👫

We were looking for an ocean getaway and found the perfect place in this wonderful one bedroom condo with its serenity and ocean views. We could take a drive to anywhere on the island to see the sites and have delicious meals, but come back to the peace and quiet of this condo. We could see turtles and whales right off the lanai.

It was equipped with almost anything you might need short of fresh food: condiments in the frig, sunblock, shampoo, hair dryer, spices to cook with and plenty of equipment for a beach stop (towels, cooler and snorkel stuff). We were minutes away from a coffee place, the harbor to take a whale watching trip, a little market (high prices but soooo convenient) and two blocks from the Aquarium.

The owner was a delight to work with and gave us many suggestions for sightseeing and dinner ideas. We took them all to heart and enjoyed every one of them. We especially enjoyed the Maui swap meet she told us about at the University, where we got fresh fruit and artwork from the locals. She worked with us to fit our schedule, as well as welcomed us with a huge basket of Maui goodies like fruit, coffee, chips and chocolate macadamia nuts. We felt right at home from our first moments in this condo. She was very responsive to our every need.

Suffice it to say, it was one of the best holidays we have ever had and a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. We booked again for next year before even leaving the island😘 Thanks, Nitka🌴

As if Maui and all of Hawaii isn't beautiful enough, this condo is the icing on the cake! As others have said, the views of the Pacific Ocean are magnificent and the whales are right in front of you. This one bedroom unit has every upgrade you can imagine and the owner, Nikta Houston, makes sure your stay is beyond comfortable, even purchased a crockpot for us to use when only asked if she had one! Did I fail to mention the goodies on the kitchen counter upon our arrival? This owner has thought of EVERYTHING and truly goes out of her way to make sure her guests love Maui as much as she does. More icing on this cake? Make sure you have the opportunity to meet Nikta, a Maui treasure for sure!!

A perfect place to stay on Maui

  • 5 of 5

This condominium at Maalaea Banyans is the perfect place for my holiday when I travel yearly to Maui. First: the location: it is very quiet, with cane fields behind and the magnificent ocean directly in front. For me this is a real plus, allowing me to listen to the music of the waves and songs of the birds. I love to sit on the lanai and enjoy tropical fruits. Nikta Houston, the owner, always has a fresh basket to welcome her guests. She is also a wealth of friendly information and help - from where to buy more of that local produce, to timely events, contacts for arranging activities, etc. She checks in with me several times during my stay; as a woman traveling alone, this really adds to my feeling of security. A short 5-minute walk brings you to the end of the street & Sugar Beach. Often while walking in the morning, I have it practically to myself (one of my favorite pastimes; and the best time to walk. The condo is also quite centrally located on the island, so one can easily be in lots of different kinds of terrains and environments - of which Maui has so many varieties! Town or country, art/entertainment or natural beauty - all within a relatively short drive. This is great if you like to explore a place, as I do. The unit itself is beautifully decorated and completely equipped for all that one needs: great appliances in tasteful built-in bamboo cabinets. Lovely sage-green linens and towels, which complement the calming color scheme of the whole condo - even the soaps are high-quality & organic! I cannot recommend Maalaea Banyans #219, or its proprietor, Nikta Houston, highly enough. It's a lovely place, conveniently located, and Nikta is always delightful to deal with, start to finish. Lastly, for what one receives, I believe the price is quite reasonable as well.
