About the property

McParadise Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

McParadise is a special place. It is small, quiet, cozy, comfortable, elegant and very Aloha.

We have a lovely bedroom with storage, a very nice bathroom, a new kitchen and family room. This is a place to relax and vacation in the truest sense of the word.

We have golf & snorkel equipment in the closet and we are usually by the pool or on the beach which is just a few steps from our patio.

The kitchen is perfect for preparing small meals although we have had dinner for six once.

The Sony television is hooked up to the cable service which supplies the wireless Internet connection. We have HP Laser printer, scan & fax machine behind the easy chair.

Parking is just outside our door and there is always a breeze blowing through our home.

About Edward McWilliams

We love to spend time at McParadise because this is the place where we can do nothing or everything. It is incredibly beautiful and quiet here. We have books on CD and a Internet connection. We go out to eat almost every night because the food here is so fresh and you won't believe the fish flavors here. We have two plastic lawn chairs on our patio that we carry to the water each night with a sunset cocktail.

Edward McWilliams purchased this condo in 2004

Why Edward McWilliams chose Maui

We bought this unit because it is a ground level unit. The upper units are locked out of Beach Access after 9:00pm. We have a beautiful lawn in front of our home that drops off onto a private beach that we enjoy late into the evening. Our end of the building is the quiet end and we love to sit out at night and cocktail with our neighbors.

What makes this condo unique

McParadise is in a hidden place of special beauty. We are part of a small boat harbor with a shopping center and the Maui Aquarium at the entrance. Our home is toward the end of a street that terminates in a small Maui County Park. We walk to dinner most nights and when we do drive somewhere it is only 20 minutes either North or South to wonderful restaurants and entertainment. We walk out our door with our snorkel gear in hand, go straight into the ocean and float around for hours then lay on the our private beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for five wonderful days at Maui. We were able to see so much from your patio.

The views are amazing.

Your place is cozy and comfortable and we are grateful.

Everything we wanted in paradise

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as presented in photos. It was less than 30 steps from the ocean and had a view with sunrises to die for. The owners were fabulous at getting back to us when we had enquiries and graciously shared all of their extras like a kayak, beach chairs, beach towels, cooler and more. A welcome basket was a touching gesture of kindness. The grounds of the condo are incredibly well kept and we were graced by a very friendly duck who waddled our way to say hello once or twice a day! The pool and hot tub are small but do the trick. For the most part we were the only ones in them. McParadise is located in a central location between Lahaina and Kihei which is perfect for providing opportunities to explore the island in all directions. It is in a very quiet area away from the busyness of town, shops and people so if you like it quiet... it is really quiet. No traffic noise- just the crashing waves. No light pollution- just hundreds of stars. What we loved best was that it was so close to a beach that went on for many kilometres. We walked it in the morning and at night where we loved watching dozens of turtles feeding along the shoreline. For the most part we were the only ones on the beach! We may meet a few people on our walks but felt like it belonged only to us. The beach also runs parallel to a magnificent boardwalk and wildlife viewing area. Many folks have to travel to visit this location and for us it was in our backyard. We were able to capture incredible photos and bird watching which was an unexpected surprise. Because the condo is located out of town we ate many meals here. We had everything we needed to create incredible meals cooked on the community barbeques that we ate on our waterfront patio. Ma'alaea has a couple of restaurants and a deli but that is about all that you will find here. Again- it is the quiet that made it the perfect place to stay for us. The whale watching and snorkelling boats leave from the harbour so a short walk has you on your way to an ocean adventure. We were thrilled to be in Maui at the end of whale season and were able to see whales from our deck as well as enjoy an excursion where we saw many whales leaping, feeding and splashing in the bay. We would like to thank Edward and Alexandra and hope that we will come this way again one day.

Great central location

  • 5 of 5

The Condo was very nice with newer kitchen reno, quiet, comfortable and very convenient as a central location to all areas of Maui. Everything you need is at your fingertips and the complex has two BBQs for the late night suppers. The beach front was fantastic, we would have coffee there every morning watching the whales splashing in the distance and the turtles peeking their heads up out of the water just feet from shore. The only negative comment i can say are the planes that travel overhead, however one gets used to them and we did not travel to Maui to stay in a condo anyway. We would be gone by 8am daily and not back until 7 or later. I would definitely go back and rent again.

Perfect location, amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Great condo has everything one needs to stay comfortably for days or weeks at a time. Comfortable bed, cozy furniture and very clean condo. The location was awesome, centrally located and easy to reach all of the places you would want to visit (Lahaina, Kihei, Hana, Haleakala, Paia). The aquarium is close, as well as mini-golf and a nice beach you can walk to at the end of the street. The view from the patio is amazing, you can see Haleakala across the bay. The beach in front of the condo has lots of sea turtles to watch float around in the waves. Great for adults and kids. We would definitely stay here again.
