Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

*** I do not list on Craigslist so if my condo is there, it's fraudulent! ***

Our upgrades to our condo include:

- bought new in Sept 2016: 48 inch LED Internet-enabled HD TV (you can stream Netflix movies for free)

- free wireless internet connection

- good couch and chairs (couch pulls out to Queen bed) - bought Sept. 2015

- washer and dryer so you can do laundry in the comfort of the condo

- ceiling fans

- and in Oct. 2016 we bought a new Port-a-Crib and collapsible stroller for guests bringing their smaller guests

We are the proud owners of this 2 bedroom/2 bathroom condo located on the west coast of Maui in the Honokowai region. Located 5 miles north of downtown Lahaina, the Paki Maui condo resort is oceanfront and right next door to Honokowai Beach Park, where the kids can enjoy a playground and beach. Enjoy the ocean views of Molokai and Lanai'i from the Paki Maui lawn: sip your morning coffee while watching the waves come in or sometimes turtles feeding on the reefs (or even watch humpback whales November - April) and come back later with a Mai Tai to watch the beautiful sunset over the Pacific.

We consider our beautifully remodeled condo as our second home, and yours: you won't be roughing it as you'll enjoy the modern amenties, from the granite kitchen countertops and tile floors throughout to the claw-foot bathtub great for bathing the little ones after a day at the beach. As well, we've installed a 48 inch Samsung LED HD TV (Sept. 2016) where you can stream free Netflix movies from an online library, using our Netflix account. Enjoy breakfast on the private lanai off the family room or take a well-deserved afternoon nap on one of the chaise lounges on the other lanai off the master bedroom.

Our intention is to provide a great value for families - affordable yet upscale at the same time. The master bedroom has a Cal King bed, the guest bedroom has a Queen bed, and the couch in the family room has a comfortable Queen size fold out bed (bought in Sept. 2015). Plus in Oct. 2016 we bought a Port-a-Crib and collapsible stroller (remove child first!) to accommodate guests with small children so you don't have to haul those items from home. And you'll notice that we won't charge you for additional guests - our unit sleeps up to 6 people yet unlike other condo owners we won't charge you a fee for each person up to the 6. You can all cool down with the trade winds coming through both sliding glass doors, as well as ceiling fans in every room. We also have free wireless in the condo, high speed internet access, and cable HD Internet-enabled TV for streaming Netflix movies in the family room. As well, we had a washer/dryer installed in the condo.

Directly across the street you'll find the popular Farmers' Market every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning for fresh local produce, fruit, breads and the like! Feel free to meander to the deli/market, grab some coffee at the Bad Ass Coffee company and shop at a number of stores across the street.

The Paki Maui grounds are meticulously maintained, with mango and banana trees, a tropical garden with exotic Hawaiian flowers, as well as a koi fish pond with waterfall. You will enjoy the pool and jacuzzi on the grounds plus can relax on the resort's lounge chairs on the lawn at the ocean and under the palm trees. And feel free to prepare your own meals on the gas BBQs available in the swimming pool area.

So come enjoy this piece of paradise on Maui - you'll love the relaxing, family experience at Paki Maui. Mahalo! Jill

About Jill

I am a legit owner! The law requires owners to post Hawaiian tax numbers (my HI Tax ID #’s: TA-172-083-2000-01 and GE-172-083-2000-01). I have lived my whole life in northern California and have great memories of family vacations to Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Santa Cruz and sometimes even Maui. I work in Silicon Valley and enjoy spending time with friends, neighbors and family, including my rescued Great Dane, Lily.

Jill purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jill chose Lahaina

We love the ~5 mile proximity to downtown Lahaina if we want that tourist experience, yet Paki Maui isn't in the middle of that hustle and bustle.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoyed watching the whales on our trip in March 2011 and February 2012. And the turtles are a favorite too! Quite simply, going down to the resort lawn in the morning with a cup of joe to watch the whales and turtles is magical.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband & I stayed in your condo with Kathy & Rick the week of Sept. 3rd. I know she already thanked you but I wanted to tell you, also, how much we enjoyed it. It was so perfect for us, definitely quality, but we really enjoyed the new mattresses. At our age, that's important and I wasn't expecting to sleep in such comfort. The condo was beautiful, comfortable, and well-stocked. Thank you for your gracious hospitality!

2BR Gem in West Maui/Kaanapali

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this condo. Especially for those who love fresh air, nighttime sounds of ocean waves, great location, and lots of fun. The condo was well stocked and we cooked and served several great meals combining a great kitchen with the poolside gas grills to create an abundant feast. The owner has a well stocked locker with tons of beach goodies which help provide the tools for comfortable and fun days by and in the ocean.

Highly responsive owner, can't say enough good things, we loved it. Only complaint was that our vacation, like all, had to end.

Plenty of fans to draw and distribute the cool evening air. No central air and it's really not necessary as temperatures in West Maui cycle ideally between comfortably warm days and just cool enough nights.

The condo is at the far Northeast corner of the property and one side is near the road, but overnight, we rarely heard any road noise. Can hear trucks and busses during the day, but not so significantly as to detract from the beauty or peace that surrounds you in Maui.

Great location but Noisy!

  • 3 of 5

Owner very helpful with questions. The Paki Maui is in a great location regarding stores, food and beaches. However, the second bedroom is more appropriate for kids than adults as its small and no wifi. The rental is right next to the road which was very noisy. Other than that, it's a good bargain.

Owner's Response: Aloha Cindy, I’m glad you appreciated my attention and responsiveness as well as enjoyed the nearby beaches and other attractions. I haven’t heard from others that the second bedroom is small (it does have a Queen size bed) nor a WiFi issue, sorry if you struggled with it. I take pride in being an affordable option for families – my rental rates are much lower than a comparable condo right on the water. So I guess it’s a trade-off for the guest: my partial ocean view at a much more affordable rate or right on the water for much more money. Actually, I’m in escrow on another unit that’s direct oceanview so (fingers crossed!) I will be able to offer future potential guests a choice. 😊? Again, sorry the stay wasn't perfect in your eyes. I do my very best to make sure guests are happy and we respond ASAP if there's an issue that we can control. From this point, I can only send you my best wishes! Mahalo, Jill

Great place to stay in Hawaii!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great week, in Maui! The condo we rented from Jill was fantastic! You can't beat the location. Many small stores and places to eat nearby. The condo was enjoyable and relaxing. It had everything we needed for a week of fun in the sun! Please consider this condo, if your headed to Maui, you will not regret it! We hope to be back in the near future.

Owner's Response: Aloha Francisco, I'm so glad to hear you all had a super time at my condo! I do like the Honokowai area for the reasons you described; I've looked at other parts of Maui and always come back to the Ka'anapali area where Paki Maui is. I look forward to hosting you again! Mahalo, Jill

The property is somewhat run down.

  • 3 of 5

It was easy to work with the host. Cleanliness was a bit lacking in the tub and shower curtain and spider webs in window. Layout was good. I felt for what I paid that I won't stay there again. Pool was not heated.

Owner's Response: Aloha Carol, I'm glad you found me easy to work with but I'm sorry you weren't completely satisfied. I'll point out to the cleaning team that the tub needs better attention. I admit I use the other shower and just changed that curtain when I was there last month; in my most recent visit (I arrived 3 days after your departure) I did not experience any issues--I thought the condo looked great!-- and I had not pre-warned the cleaning staff that I would be there). Sorry the stay wasn't perfect in your eyes. I do my very best to make sure guests are happy and we respond ASAP if there's an issue. From this point, I can only send you my very best wishes for a Happy New Year! Mahalo, Jill

Wonderful apartment.

Thank you Jill for providing a beautiful place to stay! The corner apartment was comfortable, spacious, cool and breezy. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone that want an extremely pleasant stay. We will be back to Maui and this will be our spot.
