About Michell and Blair, owner

Aloha, I am a retired Interior Designer, now enjoying my grandchildren, family and friends. I still love to create unique spaces and keep busy with my own remodeling projects.

I don't get to travel to Maui as often as I'd like but I love when our guests share their stories of their adventures while staying at our unit. I treasure the volume of guestbooks we have collected over the years. I am so grateful for the extended Ohana we enjoy through our guests. This condo has been a magical place for our family for nearly 40 years, we hope it's special for you too.

Michell and Blair, owner purchased this condo in 1979

Why Michell and Blair, owner chose Lahaina

On our first visit to Maui my husband and I knew we were coming back! We fell in love with this condo for the amazing view and the powerful and peaceful sound of the waves. That hasn't changed in 30+ years!

When we remodeled the unit we wanted to be facing the ocean as often as possible while still creating a living space. We intended to spend half of our time here which is why the unit has a unique apartment feel to it!

We love this property for the same reasons you will which are: the unbelievable view and all the ocean-life we see just from the lanai, the convenient location which takes us away from the hustle of the rest of the island and private feel of the unit.

What makes this condo unique

Oceanfront!! 15 FT from the water's edge!

Convenient location.

Impressive Maui sunsets, rainbows over the ocean, swaying palms, warm tradewinds, soothing surf, unobstructed breathtaking views of Moloka'i and Lanai, whales play and jump.

Location

Car: recommended

The Kahana area is ideally located between Kaanapali and Kapalua Golf Resorts and just 10 minutes from Lahaina. You're close to amazing shops, restaurants and snorkeling spots but just far enough away from crowds.

Very Nice But...

  • 3 of 5

Overall the property was very nice. Plenty of room and a spectacular view. However, it did not have AC nor were there window coverings to keep out the heat. The room was VERY hot in the evening and night making it quite difficult to sleep until well after mid-night. As we learned, most units have AC. Maui can be quite warm and AC is really a necessity. It would have been nice if we had been notified that there was no AC>

Owner's Response: Aloha Bonnie and Jack, We were so sorry to read your review and discover that you were so uncomfortable during your stay. We were disappointed that you didn't reach out to us so that we could make every attempt to make your stay more enjoyable. We feel a personal connection with our guests and work hard to promptly resolve any guest issues. We were surprised to hear that you were unaware of the lack of a/c in the unit as you had shared with us that our neighbor recommended our unit to you; they have actually toured our unit with an interest to purchase. November is typically mild weather and I did note that the evenings were about 72 degrees, we again are sorry that the ceiling fans and portable fans brought no relief. We have asked our HOA in the past about installing a/c and were met with resistance. Our personal experience with the unique set-up of the unit, is that the cross-breezes provide very nice circulation. It seems that the floor to ceiling window coverings on the sliding glass door were also not helpful. After reading your review I immediately went to our site and added (in four new areas) that we do not provide a/c. Prior to my additions this information was provided on the pages I've filled out for guests who may want to know more details about the unit. The lack of a/c is one of the reasons our unit is more affordably priced than most listings that attempt to offer what we offer. Again, we are sorry that your stay was not what you'd hoped but thank you for your feedback. Mahalo, Michell and Blair

The studio felt like home. View from the lanai is extraordinary.

  • 5 of 5

Great attention to detail. The studio is equipped with everything you could possibly need. Michell is a fantastic resource. She quickly responded to texts/emails before and during my stay. There was a major storm that knocked out power on the entire island of Maui. I travelled solo, and greatly appreciated Michell's concern for my safety. She's a wonderful host.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is lovely. We loved watching the turtles swim every morning as we drank our coffee on the lanai.

There was a little goodie basket with coffee, nuts and chocolate that was such a treat. Parking is very conveniently in the shade and right beside the stairs to the condo.

Michell was very helpful.

Exactly what we needed! Amazing stay in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our Maui getaway. It was the best view we could find for watching the sunset and watching sea turtles float by in the morning. There were options for food and activities that were in walking distance, otherwise almost everything was within a 10 minute drive. Waking up to the view was priceless and the balcony was our favourite place to hang out. The condo had lots of amenities, including beach towels and beach chairs. We loved having this place as a "home base", it was hard to leave! Michell is incredibly accommodating and responds promptly to questions and concerns. She also offered clear driving directions and plenty of recommendations for exploring the area. Thank you so much! Our trip to Maui was amazing and it would not have been the same without this condo!

Great Location, quiet

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 5 days during July. Great, convenient location to everything on the west end of the island. We were lulled to sleep every night by the waves.

Great location and AMAZING view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is great! Owners were excellent to work with and made the process super easy. The pictures showing are exactly what it looks like. You're as close as you can get to the water and the view is a million dollar view. Condo fully stocked with everything you need to cook, relax and spend the day at the beach too. Sunsets on the lanai are breathtaking and the daily visits from the sea turtles, whales and dolphins are so neat to see. We had a hard time leaving this morning and are already planning our next trip back. The only down side if we had to find one would be the occupants (don't know if renters or locals)up stairs got up daily at 5:30AM and it got loud each morning with them moving around and when the breeze died down it got warm quickly in the condo. But, with that being said it would be a no brainer for us to stay here again next time we go to Maui.

Owner's Response: Mahalo mio for the kind review. We're so happy that you enjoyed your stay and delighted to host you again. We will reach out to the owner upstairs to address the noise, we apologize that this happened during your stay. We are also looking in to a shade for the Lana to help with warmer days. Thank you for the feedback. With much aloha, Blair and Michell
