We all loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is fantastic! The location is amazing as it is right on the beach with very easy access. It is the last complex in the row and opens up to a public beach you can walk on for hours. Even though it was right next to a public park access, it was never overrun by lots of people and the ones who were enjoying the public beach were very respectful of the property lines in front of the condo which was nice to see. There was always nice options to set up beach chairs and towels.

The turtle watching was amazing both from the beach and the upper deck of the condo unit. We spent all of our free time on the beach, lawn or on the deck enjoying the beautiful Maui sun rise and sun sets.

The condo itself was very comfortable and well stocked. My sons loved the boogie boards and fins/snorkel sets. We loved the size of the complex. So many on Maui are very large but we felt safe and happy in this smaller beautifully landscaped complex.

We really appreciated Bill's updates as we came closer to our check in date. We had a question when we first arrived and he returned our call in about 2 minutes! Very impressive!

We would highly recommend this beautiful unit to anyone and will be excitedly sharing memories and recommendations to our family and friends.

Thank you Bill for everything!

Absolutely great

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very comfortable condo in Maui.

It was so lovely to sit on the lanai with the beautiful view, listen to the ocean & the turtles certainly kept us amused.

The condo is in a great location, lovely & quiet but central to other areas.

Everything had been thought of & provided for a wonderful holiday.

Thank you Bill & Cris.

Everything you need in paradise under one roof

  • 5 of 5

We loved the fact that this property is adjacent to a park and an undeveloped stretch of beach. While the park is really busy on weekends, it gets really quiet when the park closes at 7:00 PM and the noise restriction goes into effect. That meant that morning coffee on the lanai was a quiet time to enjoy watching the sea turtles feed on the nearby reef.

The condo is stocked with everything you could possibly want for a beach adventure and all the gear is clean and well maintained. We happily used the small cooler and ice packs for a picnic after snorkeling near Makena.

The galley kitchen is tiny, but had everything needed to take advantage of Maui's freshest produce and fish. There's a full spice rack and the cupboards and fridge have a wide variety of condiments. The owners also provided a lovely fruit basket, so I was able to grab some crushed red pepper and seasoned rice vinegar to round out the tropical salsa and marinade for marlin steaks. The knives were sharp and everything was of better quality and in better shape that what we'd had at the brand name condo we'd stayed at in Kaanapali. It's a cook's kitchen!

If you're looking for a clean, quiet place book this condo. We plan to stay here again on our next trip to Maui!

Awesome place! Every need is thought of and there for you to use!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome condo right on the beach! Bill is a great host! They literally have everything you need there for you to use. There is fresh fruit, POG juice, waters, coffee and cookies waiting for you when you arrive. There were coins for the laundry and laundry detergent! The thoughtful hospitality is first class! We loved sitting on the patio at the end of the day with a glass of wine listening to the waves. If we ever go back to Maui, this is where we will stay!

Great location with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful 10-day stay at this beachfront condo. The condo is true to the pictures, you really are that close to the ocean. The beach is practically private with very few tourists or locals and is great for long walks. Our teenage boys also loved playing in waves. All of the snorkel equipment, boogie boards, and beach gear (chairs, umbrella, etc.) are supplied and are a great convenience. The condo itself is very comfortable with nice beds, a functional kitchen and family area with good A/C. The location is excellent as it is centrally located to all of the island's activities without being in a crowded tourist resort area. The fresh local fruit and coffee for the first morning and the laundry change are nice touches to make you feel welcome. We would definitely recommend this property and would stay there again.
