About Tom Fountain & Michelle Kling
I grew up and still live in Reno, Nevada. I have owned this condo for over 30 years. I came to Maui on a business trip and purchased during the building phase. I love this location and make the trip at least once per year.
Why Tom Fountain & Michelle Kling chose Maalaea
Being right on the ocean is what draws me here. I can sit on the lanai for hours listening to the waves, watching the bay and simply relaxing.

Great and well equipped
Terrific condo on the water. Great views. Equipped with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing Hawai’i vacation including snorkel gear, sand chairs, umbrellas, cooler and even hats. Really nice and communicative owners too. We loved it as a base of operations for Kihei, Lahaina, and the upcountry.
Thank you for taking your time to write a review. So glad you found the condo perfect for your needs. We try to keep it fully equipped and in good condition for our guests.
First time Maui vacation
Condo was perfectly located so all parts of the Island were easily accessible. The view from the condo was fantastic. Most especially the Condo was clean and stocked with many kitchen items. We totally enjoyed our time there and we want to come back again.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The view is amazing - you can sit on the lanai and watch the ocean, see the sunrise (if you are up that early!) and totally relax - so glad you enjoyed it! And thank you for the comments on the kitchen. We cook when we are there, so we like it to keep it well stocked with kitchen items. Hope you do come back, aloha, Michelle & Tom
This was a perfect location for us. Close to everything yet non-touristy. Lovely park with fabulous beach 5 minute walk from condo. Water you can actually swim in without getting pounded. Great for older folks and children. Pool and grounds were wonderful and extremely clean and manicured. Condo was clean, very well cared for. Has been updated and has lots of amenities for beach time: chairs, coolers, umbrella. Quiet area. Five minute walk from Maalaea Harbor with shops, restaurants and excursions. Half way between Wailea and Makena Beach (stunning) and Kaanapali Beach which are lovely, but have tons of people and great waves for surfing. Great restaurants within 10-15 minute drive. Perfect place to come unwind and relax.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay here. The location really is a "plus" when it comes to exploring the island. We work hard to keep it well stocked and beach ready, so glad you found it accommodating. Maalaea Bay is good for excursions as it is close with lots of amenties. Thank you and hope to see you again! Aloha!!
The condo was perfect for a couple. It was clean and well-stocked with everything that you might need including beach towels, a cooler, beach chairs, etc. The owners were very prompt in responding to my inquiries. The location was incredible, in the middle of the island. It was a great base for traveling and doing day trips in every direction. There are several restaurants near-by which was very handy. It is also very close to a marina where boats offer dinner/snorkel cruises.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We feel the same about the location - it provides easy access to both north and south on the island. We try to provide ammenties to make your stay enjoyable and glad to hear it was. Hope to see you again, aloha, Michelle & Tom
Great location, excellent management
The only information I would offer is that it might be time for a really deep cleaning of the apartment. Don't get me wrong... It was clean... But getting somewhat dated and appears that it is time to clean behind and under appliances and furniture. The closets are completely full of items that previous occupants have left behind and other items that really do not add any positive attraction to the unit.
It is a nice unit and well located it certainly served us well and we may book it again in the future. My comments would only move it from a good unit to an excellent one.
Having scored several things like this I am not sure if the "left" star or the "right" star is the best rating. I will check the right star and assume it is the highest.
Thank you for letting us know your concerns. We don't get over as often as we would like, so it is helpful when we get feedback such as this. We are going over in October so will be able to clean out the closets and I will speak to our cleaning people about doing a deep clean in the next few weeks.
Otherwise, we are glad the location served you well and hope you overall enjoyed your trip to Maui. Aloha!
The condo is located on the Maalaea Bay within walking distance to Maalaea Harbor where many ocean activities are available including diving, snorkeling, whale watching, fishing, sunset sailing and dinner cruises. Also, just a short walk away are several excellent restaurants, the Maui Ocean Center, shopping and miniature golf as well as a delicatessen and small grocery store.
