One of the best condos in Maui (with the reviews to prove it)! (Hawaii Tax ID: TA-113-583-7184-01) Now with a new King bed (to replace the Queen)!
* Any bookings for 2020/2021 can cancel last minute due to a positive Covid test or if Hawaii changes the rules regarding quarantine. You must provide proof of the positive test. Unfortunately the VRBO cancellation policy doesn't show this info as I can't 'customize' it. But for any booking through 2021, if your Hawaii pre-test is positive you can cancel. Also, if you cancel 30 days or more before your stay, you'll get a full refund.
We're being extra diligent about cleaning and leaving at 24 hours between each stay. So you can expect a safe stay when you arrive! However, we are requiring guests to clean dishes, take out the trash and strip the bed. Check-in and Checkout times have been changed to 4pm and 10am, as the cleaning process is now taking longer. There is no increase in the cleaning fee however.
The beautiful pacific ocean is 25 ft away from your lanai! Listen to the waves and see the stunning views of Lanai and Molokai. During whale season, you can see whales all day long. The condo itself is designed as something I would expect from an upscale Maui resort. So it's very well appointed and very comfortable. Including a new high end Sterns & Foster King mattress! A vacation condo should feel like home and somewhere you look forward to returning to.
I've put a lot of work into the place and care a lot about the condo and your experience in it. You can see that reflected in the reviews! :-)
Watch the new 360 degree video of what it's like sitting on the sea wall in front of the condo! You can even see one of the turtles that visit us daily. Since it's 360, you can click on the video and move the camera.
Also, check out the beautiful, custom shower! Finally got around to remodeling the shower and it came out amazing. All slate, river rock, and quartzite. I'm stoked about it and you will be too. :-)
Note: There's been some erosion on the beach directly south of the condo. So the nearest beach requires a couple block walk. There are also plenty of beaches within a 5 minute drive of the condo. The sea wall and lawn directly in front of the condo are unaffected.
I keep my calendar updated. If it says condo is available, it is. I know it's frustrating when you see an available condo and it's just due to folks not updating their calendars.
Key Amenities: Air Conditioner, new high-end King mattress, 600 thread count linens, free reserved parking, wired/wireless super fast internet (100mb down/10mb up), flat screen TV, remodeled kitchen, remodeled shower, and lots of small amenities like a hair dryer in the bathroom and juicer in the kitchen.

My name is Jim Tierney and I recently purchased this condo to live in 3 months of the year. I recently finished remodeling it and it came out beautifully. Since I'll be living in it, the remodel was necessary to make it someplace I'd want to stay. So this is not a normal rental unit where everything was done on the cheap! I love the Westin and their Heavenly Bed, so that was my target in creating the space (minus all the noise and timeshare sales pitches :-).
I figure there's two things people want from a Maui vacation... 1) to see and hear the ocean from their lanai and 2) to get some sleep. :-) As for the ocean, the condo is 25 feet away from the ocean so you can sit on the lanai and watch the waves crash into the sea wall or the sun set over the wide pacific and disappear behind Molokai. When it comes to sleeping I'm pretty particular about the mattress I sleep on, so it was important to find a good mattress that rivaled what I expect from the Westin. It's wrapped up in designer bedding and 600 thread count sheets. In January 2020 I got a new high end Sterns & Foster King Mattress. It's amazingly comfortable and I think you'll find it's wonderful to listen to the waves as you drift off to sleep.
It's a wonderful, luxurious space that will give you everything you want from a Maui vacation. I look forward to having you experience it for yourself.
If you're into cooking, the kitchen has been completely remodeled with granite countertops and custom wood cabinets. You have all the cookware necessary for a complete meal and then some. The dishes, glassware, and tableware are all beautiful and will make having dinner on the lanai at sunset feel like a 5 star restaurant. You are also a couple minutes away from a market that specializes in local and organic foods, if you're looking for fresh ingredients.
There's also a brand new air conditioner, which is not common in vacation rentals.
Of course, there's the usual stuff, 32' flatscreen TV with DVD and cable, high speed internet with WiFi, speakers to plug an iPod into, hair dryer, small library of DVDs, and even a desk to write postcards on or check email (not that you'd be doing that on your vacation). There's also stuff like beach chairs, a boogie board, snorkel equipment, and beach towels. The couch becomes a queen sized, simmons sofa bed to accomodate kids or another adult. This IS a sofa bed. It's a nice one, but like all sofa beds it's not the paragon of comfort, especially for adults.
There are two pools. However, this is a residential condo complex (meaning folks live here year round) so the pools aren't resort quality. There's no waterslides, bars, spa, lifeguards, or attendants handing you towels. They are nice, clean pools, but more modest than you'd find in a resort. Of course, the condo has pool/beach towels for your use and it's easy enough to mix up your own drinks in the blender. :-) There's also a couple day spas a short distance away.
The unit is adjacent to a sandy beach which is great for swimming and snorkeling or just laying out. There's a grassy area directly in front with a gas BBQ, tables, and chaise lounges. You're one block from restaurants and shopping. It's an excellent central location to go north to Kapalua or south to Kaanapali, Lahaina town and the Lahaina Harbor.
The condo is non-smoking and is on the second floor, up one flight of stairs.
