About the property

1 queen bed, 1 sofa bed, 1 bath, full kitchen, WiFi, quiet, 2 min. walk to beach

Aloha! This charming condo is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac across the street from Sugar Beach in a small, 10-unit complex. The property is beautifully landscaped, and outdoor pool meticulously maintained. Guests are encouraged to use the 6-hole putting green, poolside barbecue grills, dining tables, and lounges. Free off-street parking is available directly behind the building. The central location makes it easy to explore all the incredible restaurants, shops, golf courses, and beaches Maui has to offer. While the outdoor features and location are sure to please, the interior is equally appealing.

Upon entering this 2nd floor vacation home, you will begin to notice the attention to detail and quality amenities selected with your comfort and enjoyment in mind. From the cottage style iron bed to the sleek granite countertops, you'll recognize instantly you made an excellent choice in affordable accommodations.


You will soon feel right at home in this sunny retreat with its understated tropical decor. The large 10' patio door in the living/dining area maximizes your view of the Pacific Ocean, pool, and courtyard area. The air conditioner with remote control features a quiet mode making it virtually soundless while keeping you cool even on the warmest days. A shared laundry building with washer, dryer, activity brochures, and books to borrow are just steps away. In addition, our on-call housekeepers and maintenance men are available to help make your stay as worry-free as possible. This 1 bedroom unit (not a studio), is comfortable for up to 2 guests. It is organized, clutter-free, and exceptionally clean and well-maintained.


The living/dining room has been furnished with a lift-top coffee table, full sleeper sofa, rocker recliner, and drop-leaf dining table. The corner entertainment center holds a stereo/CD player, DVD player, a large selection of CDs, DVDs, puzzles, board games, and playing cards. After a fun-filled day out and about, you'll be able to come home and enjoy the wall-mounted 32" cable TV.

LANAI (Balcony)

One of the best features of this condo is the lovely view. Take your coffee or favorite ice cold beverage outside and relax in one of the cushioned swivel chairs and soak up the sights and sun. A guest closet on the lanai provides storage for sports and beach equipment including cooler, tennis rackets, snorkel gear in all sizes, and sanitizer. Although smoking is strictly prohibited indoors, it is allowed on the lanai as long as it doesn't bother neighbors and the sliding door remains closed. If others complain, you will need to smoke at least 20' away from the building in the parking lot (it's the law).


Highlights of the fully furnished kitchen include granite countertops, built-in microwave, full-size refrigerator with ice maker, apartment-size dishwasher, and stove with easy-to-clean ceramic cooktop. To compliment the larger appliances, this room also includes a coffeemaker, coffee grinder, toaster, blender, slow cooker, popcorn popper, electric mixer, spices, cutlery, cooking and eating utensils, dishes, drinkware, cookware, bakeware, barbecue tools, linens, and cookbooks.


This restful space features a queen size bed with Sealy Posturepedic mattress and memory foam topper, quality bedding, queen size pillows, wicker nightstands, 2 alarm clocks (1 with dual USB ports and a multi charging cable for phones, cameras, and tablets), overhead reading lamps, wall-mounted 26" cable TV, CD player with iPhone/iPod docking station, and ceiling fan. Opposite the bed is a writing desk, phone for making unlimited free local and long distance calls to the U.S., Canada, and 30+ other countries, free high-speed internet, and wireless router. A bookcase stores a 2nd DVD player, Maui travel guides, children's reading and coloring books and crayons. Boogie boards are stored under the bed.


Adjacent to the bedroom is the pretty travertine tiled bathroom with granite countertop vanity and large medicine cabinet. Enjoy the spacious soaking tub/shower, soap, shampoo and conditioner, and over-sized bath linens. The shower caddy, hair dryer, curling irons, digital bathroom scale, and side table for toiletries/cosmetics are added bonuses.


No need to worry when it comes to storing clothing once you unpack. The walk-in closet has plenty of hangers and a 4-drawer chest. To help make your stay even more convenient, you will find binoculars, wall safe, iron/ironing board, garment steamer, mesh laundry hamper, vacuum, cleaning supplies, extra blanket, beach chairs, beach towels and tote bag, beach and rain umbrellas, and winter outerwear for sunrise/sunset trips to Mt. Haleakala. We have also provided an emergency tote with necessary supplies, collapsible water jugs, and directions to area shelters in the unlikely event you must evacuate the area for a tsunami, flash flood, earthquake, or hurricane.


Once you reserve your dates, we'll do everything we can to ensure you take home treasured memories to last a lifetime.

Mauidipity Happens Vacation Condominium (MHVC), is located in the 10-unit Wailana Sands complex in North Kihei. It operates legally and consistently with all current County of Maui zoning ordinances and state laws. Many Maui short-term vacation rentals and B&Bs, are not located in approved zoning districts and/or owners are not paying State of Hawaii Transient Accommodation Taxes and General Excise Taxes. Be aware that illegal properties risk closure and you could find yourself without accommodations, as state and county officials and inspectors work together to enforce new policies. Travelers can copy and paste the following link into any search engine to check whether a rental being considered is located in a legal zoning district: Approved zoning districts are designated as Hotel, Resort, H-1, H-2, or H-M, with very few exceptions. In order for illegal rentals to operate lawfully in other zones, owners must apply to, and be approved by the County of Maui for a Conditional or B&B permit, and possess Hawaii TAT and GET (tax), identification numbers. Owners must display their permit number, if required, and both tax ID numbers prominently in their unit(s) and on all advertisements such as VRBO and HomeAway. If unable to find those numbers within an advertised listing, you may want to verify the property's legality by asking the owner or manager for them before booking.

Wailana Sands (MHVC) Zoning: H-M Hotel District, Zone 3 / Legal--no permit required

MHVC Hawaii Transient Accommodations Tax ID: TA-020-719-2064-01 / MHVC Hawaii General Excise Tax ID: GE-020-719-2064-01

Another great extended stay!

  • 5 of 5

Recently finished up our third extended stay at this great property and already looking forward to next year. Janet and Allen have maintained an excellent condo that is very well equipped and thought out. Great attention to detail - wonderful, prompt communication. They also provide a myriad of information and recommendations for enjoying your time on Maui. The complex is extremely well maintained and the ten units mean that the pool is never crowded and you can actually get to know some of your neighbors, especially in an extended stay situation. A super walking beach right across the street. If you turn right, it's four miles of easy beach walk and to the left another two!

We have rented many condos on the islands and other states on the mainland, but nothing comes close to this!

Owner's Response: I couldn't ask for more thoughtful, respectful, and kind guests than the two of you are. I look forward to your arrival every year because you take such good care of everything while you're there. You even keep our electric costs low which is another way you show your consideration. It's satisfying when our guests notice and appreciate all our efforts to provide helpful information, and maintain and update our unit on a regular basis--thank you for that. Thanks very much for your awesome 5-star review--can't wait to have you back next year!

Perfect condo for a couple.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Allan and Janet for letting us holiday in their Condo.So well decorated and spotless. Nothing was missing. The bed was sooo comfy.

Friendly neighbors and clean warm swimming pool. We had our breakfast everyday on the deck overlooking the pool and all kinds of birds to watch.

We would recommend this unit to our friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind and thoughtful compliments and review, Robert and Cecile. We actually enjoy the same things you do. Allen and I love waking up with the birds at dawn and watch them from the balcony while having our morning cup of joe. If you're there long enough and pay close attention, you'll begin to notice their daily routines. We too appreciate having such nice neighbors at the complex and miss them when we're not there. Many of our repeat guests tell me they return the same time each year because they've developed close friendships with other regulars. The small size of the complex makes that pretty easy to do. The exceptionally clean pool and beautifully manicured grounds are just icing on the cake. Thanks again for your wonderful words of praise. I want to extend an invitation for you to stay at our condo the next time you visit Maui.

Definitely served its' purpose!

  • 5 of 5

All I needed for this trip is a place to sleep, shower, and to eat a light breakfast for a week. This condo certainly did the trick. It is clean, comfortable, fully stocked, and well maintained. The air conditioner certainly came in handy to cool off the unit in the evenings before going to bed. Janet was very informative and easy to work with. Her attention to detail is extraordinary. It's too bad I didn't have any time to lounge and have fun because those amenities are definitely available at this condo. Thank you Janet and Allen for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: You're welcome, Lois! We love sharing our vacation home with others. Even though your entire time in Maui was spent taking care of an ailing family member, I'm glad our condo served your need to unwind and rest. Thanks for all your kind remarks and appreciation for the job we do. We appreciate that very much, and hope you know you're invited to return anytime.

Perfect for an anniversary vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable studio condo with full kitchen & balcony overlooking the pool. Janet’s attention to detail was impeccable! We had everything we needed including beach equipment, snorkeling gear & bathroom amenities. The beaches in the area are known for snorkeling & relaxing. So if you are looking for a laid back place to unwind-this is it!

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your thoughtful review, Norman. I enjoyed having you and Laurie as my guests and hope you had a fantastic time celebrating your 20th anniversary. I would like to gently correct a small mistake in your review for potential renters who may be reading this, however. Mauidipity Happens Vacation Condominium is actually a 1 bedroom unit rather than a 1 room studio. The difference is the bedroom is separated from the living area which gives more privacy and quiet. Thanks again for your 5-star review and for noticing all the details that make it so special. I invite you back the next time you visit Maui.

About Janet Young

I briefly taught 3rd grade, but chose to forgo my career to help keep track of 3 fun, active, test-my-patience children. They were born 1 year apart and together became partners in crime. While I chased after our little angels, my husband Allen, worked as a carpenter for General Motors so his family could take piano lessons, have straight teeth, and a decent roof over their heads.

Soon after everyone had flown the nest, Allen retired and we traveled to Maui for the very first time to celebrate. It didn't take long to fall in love with the gorgeous Valley Isle. Several weeks into our vacation, we attended an open house on a whim and met a sweet, hard-working real estate agent. Stacey showed us a sun-filled condo with a great view in need of a little TLC. After careful consideration, we decided to take the plunge. We didn't have a clue at that time how we were going to manage our condo from Michigan, but it felt like the right thing to do. Fortunately, Stacey offered to become our temporary housekeeper, and her fiancé agreed to be our temporary maintenance man (we have since hired permanent help). I manage our websites and rentals from home. Everything worked out quite effortlessly . . . an unexpected gift I feel was meant to be. That's how the condo name, Mauidipity Happens (a blend of Maui and serendipity), came about.

Even though Allen and I love to travel, there isn't anywhere else on earth we'd rather be. We enjoy sharing our vacation home with guests and hope they experience the same joy and contentment we feel each time we return to our little slice of paradise.


Janet Young purchased this condo in 2008

Why Janet Young chose Kihei

Personally, I feel the town of Kihei (pronounced Key-hay), in which our condo is located, is truly the best place on the island to vacation. It's a top destination for visitors who want to spend time on Maui without breaking the bank. Our guests tell me they love the beautiful beaches (some of the best on Maui), lush tropical plants, flowers and trees, homey feeling, convenience, and affordability. It is also known for being the sunniest, driest area on the island. In other words, Kihei has it all.

If shopping is high on your to-do list, there are no fewer than ten shopping centers of varying sizes in the area. Eating out is never a problem in Kihei either. While many visitors choose to cook their meals in the condo to save money, the town has a wide selection of restaurants from fast food and moderately priced eateries to a number of upscale dining establishments.

Bird watchers and nature lovers will also find much to enjoy. Visit Kealia Pond Wildlife Refuge and Visitor Center, where endangered Hawaiian stilts and coots thrive in a salt-water marsh. A short distance in the opposite direction, the Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary is an ideal spot to learn about the area's marine environment and watch humpback whales from shore during the winter months.

The nearby harbor at Ma'alaea is the launching site for pleasure boats taking visitors on charter fishing excursions, whale watching expeditions, and snorkel trips.

There is an excellent public golf course in Kihei as well as world class resort golf courses nearby.

Tourists find it easy to relax and enjoy the sunshine, surf, and sand which are hallmarks of the area. Due in part to its great central location, many savvy visitors repeatedly make Kihei their base to explore the beauty of Maui, and you should too.

What makes this condo unique

We love our condo because it's located in a small, well-maintained complex (Wailana Sands), with a very nice pool, beautiful landscaping, birds galore, and enclosed lawn area which is rare on the island. We're also very lucky to have the friendliest, most helpful neighbors anyone could ever ask for. It's especially fun gathering by the pool with everyone during happy hour at around 5PM. Guests are always welcome to join the group--you don't need to wait for an invite. We share snacks, exchange Maui tips and recommendations, and have friendly, not-too-serious discussions concerning ethics/politics/religion/current events, or wherever the conversation takes us. We swap life stories, laugh a lot, drink a little (BYOB or non-alcoholic), and learn about guests who visit from around the globe. If, on the other hand, you'd rather be left alone to relax and do your own thing, you're given plenty of space and privacy to do that, as well. What's not to love?

Guestbook comments from the owner

We appreciate all of your thought and effort to make our vacation enjoyable: everything we would need for the beach, the fully stocked kitchen, The Road to Hana audio tour CD, the reference books and all the helpful extras! It was wonderful staying in a clean place that is central to everything. Aloha!
