We’d stay here again
The property was very comfortable, with a full kitchen, a king-size bed, and a lovely living room. The location was perfect, and the suggestions left by our host were very helpful. We’d stay here again.
My Favorite Maui Location
Fifth or sixth time to Maui and this is the second time we have used this property; although we always try to book.
Communication with the owners is very easy. The property itself is great as the unit comes with everything you need for a short weekend stay or an extended one. For me, the best characteristic is the location: right on the water, overlooks the whale preserve, centrally located to everything, and right next to the harbor is you want to do any whale watching.
It's a perfect place to stay get location loved every min we were there
Everything we needed was there and communication was great.
A wonderful place to stay.
We were very pleased with our stay. Barbara was quick to respond to questions before and during our stay. There was one small issue with our room, and she promptly addressed it. The description of the listing was accurate. The room had everything one would need for your stay. We arrived late and did not have a chance to go shopping before coming (and too tired to care). We were delighted to see some local coffee (enough for one-pot), a Pineapple, and some delicious banana bread along with cream and sugar.
The weather was a little challenging; It was one of the hottest weeks in Maui. The lack of the Trades Winds was a pain. The small AC in the room did a decent job of keeping the room confrontable along with the floor fan. Our last night, the Trade winds kicked in, and we were able to sleep well with windows open. There was no timer on the AC, as stated in other reviews.
If we ever get to Maui again, we would be happy to stay here again. Thank you.
Pluses and minuses
Absolutely love the complex and management. Have been coming here for years and always enjoy the central but quiet location, the spectacular ocean front views and the complete pool amenities. Turtles are a sweet surprise when they are around. The welcome basket of fruit, coffee and banana bread is a nice touch and Barbara and her staff are very responsive. Having a kitchen, beach gear and washer and drier are very useful. A few downsides of this particular condo: the couch is very uncomfortable (has zero support, sink right in), the bed on the other hand VERY stiff, we left sore and not well rested. Dining table super low, felt like eating in our laps. In other words, we tried to spend very little time there for lack of comfort, and more at the beach or pool. Nothing the management could solve at the moment, just is time for a few key updates. A few other small touches that would be nice to see: cleaning dusty corners, replacing moldy curtain, and rusty shower hooks, pest control (roach and ants) fresh towels ( ours smelt a bit funky). AC was good to have, but had to be coupled with the fan to get it into the bedroom to get any sleep. Not bad for the value. Definitely will be back, but perhaps to one of the other units next time :)
Aloha and thanks for the review! I am always available to help resolve any issues while here and could have remedied some of these. One option always available is moving to another space that would better fit guest needs. I share the love of living here also. Have for 15 years and wouldn't choose to live anywhere else plus being close for guests.
Sore guests are not what we want! Since different people have different sleeping needs there are modifications that can be made like extra soft mattress pads or bed toppers, all easily remedied if known.
Since we have dining tables in other condos we did a quick measure of others and they are all the same height as this. We'll address the cleaning issues mentioned with our cleaner and her supervisor. After condos are cleaned we have someone double check everything. Pest control is done quarterly for the whole complex and if any problem is noted in-between they will come and retreat immediately....just need to know if there's a problem.
A note for the future....this condo is changing ownership and is getting ready for many updates including new furniture, a more powerful AC system, painting, bathroom remodel, etc. It will be done in segments in between guests in the next months so as not to disturb anyone confirmed.
Cleanliness and guest comfort in the condo is our number one goal!
Great stay, great location
We really enjoyed our stay! The view from the porch (lanai) was excellent for watching the sunrise and is very open except for the tree to the right. It was nice having towels and chairs available. The location was also great as you are in the middle of the island and we were able to walk down to the marina for a snorkeling trip one morning on the Malolo. The bedroom is on the far end of the unit from the ocean side, so it got a little warm in there as the ocean breeze didn't really reach that far. Would definitely stay there again!
Whale Watching (in season), Turtle watching all year-round.
