Construction Special - Scheduled for April 1, 2020 through September 30, 2020 - 25% off
Extensively remodeled. This is luxury living in paradise! NO RESORT FEES!
Sunsets, whale watching, turtles and a view of Molokai from the lanai. Newly renovated! The entire condo was completely remodeled with high end appliances and finishes. It is truly a place you'll want to spend your vacation. Hear the waves crashing while you sleep. Watch the most amazing sunsets Our 3rd floor unit gives you an incredible view of what you're coming to Maui to experience -- the ocean!
Comfortably sleeps 4 people. There is a king size bed in the bedroom and a queen sofa sleeper in the living room.
The reef in front of our building is one of the premier kitesurfing and windsurfing areas on Maui. When the wind is blowing, you are in for quite a show! One of the best surfing beaches on Maui is also within walking distance. It takes a North or Northwest swell for S-Turns to work it's magic for surfing! S-Turns has both left and right break and has a sandy bottom. A typical NW swell produces 4-6 foot waves that are perfect for longboarding. This is rare on Maui!
We can not accommodate check in or check out on Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years days. Our cleaning company gives their staff these days off. You are more than welcome to book your stay over these dates but be aware that we may require you to check in or out the day before or after these dates if another guest is already arriving or departing on these holiday dates.
Notice: Beach Access Issue - In October, 2019 extremely high surf and swell conditions caused damage to the beach access at our condo complex. The high surf undermined the landing to the north set of stairs and opened up a sinkhole on the north property boundary between our condominium complex and the neighboring property. Our HOA doesn’t believe that the stairs to the beach will be put back into service until sometime around September, 2020. This may limit the amount of area between the condo buildings and the ocean that are accessible to guests and it’s unclear if the landscaping in this area will be replaced immediately.
What this means is that access to the beach requires a detour. There is a beach access corridor just to the north of the condo. There are instructions on how to get to the beach access corridor in the “House Manual” inside the condo. And please be aware that all the beaches in Hawaii are public.
Construction Discount - The construction discount will automatically be applied to the total price. There is nothing additional you need to do to. Our normal nightly rates are between $225 to $245 per night.
Construction Notice (Updated): There is a seawall construction project scheduled for summer/fall 2019 at our condominium complex. Construction will also occur between April 1, 2020 and September 30, 2020 - these dates are also discounted.
We anticipate that construction will occur weekdays during normal work hours (Monday through Friday 8-5) and should not interfere with anything at our condo unit although there will be some noise during the day. There is no work being done on the buildings and does not interfere with access to the pool although there is a detour to access the beach. We have deeply discounted the prices on our calendar to reflect this issue. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the construction.
Our condo is a legal short term rental in the State of Hawaii and Maui. This is very important as there are many short term rentals that do not pay these taxes and could put your stay in jeopardy. We pay the Transient Accommodations Tax (TAT) of 10.25% and the General Excise Tax of 4.17% directly to the State of Hawaii. Hawaii Tax License/registration number: GET 177-444-2496-01

While we can't guarantee it, we encounter sea turtles on almost a daily basis in front of our condo. We enjoy whale watching from our lanai (balcony) If you like to snorkel, jump in the water there is great snorkeling right out front of the condo. We just learned to surf at S-Turns park which is a short walk from the condo.
Great restaurants are close by, we can give a recommendation if you would like.
There is a cleaning fee for each stay which is included in your total from Airbnb. We believe in paying a living wage to the maids that clean our condo. Hawaii is an expensive place to live and raise a family. We hope that you understand why our rates are what they are. We do not "mark up" the cleaning fee in any manner, it is the actual fee charged by our cleaning service.
Our on island management company requires that food items left in the condo be removed due to liability reasons, food allergies, health department codes, and religious or philosophical issues that may impact a guest. They will actually toss any perishable or questionable items left in the condo refrigerator or kitchen cupboards. Anything with sugar in it is also a problem due to the possibility that it will attract insects and pests. We make every attempt to provide the basics for your stay; salt, pepper, cooking oil, some spices, etc. Please remember, this a vacation home and we live 3,000 miles away - we can’t always ensure exactly what’s in the condo when you get there. Food safety is important to us and your health and we hope you understand.
We also provide, coffee for your first day, soap, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, and paper towels. We do not provide laundry detergent. Our kitchen does come fully stocked with all of the pots, pans and utensils that you will need to cook and we have a “Mr. Coffee” style coffee maker, blender, microwave, etc.
You should strongly consider shopping for your stay in Kahului (near the airport) if you’re planning on cooking or staying for an extended period. There is a Costco, Target, Wal-Mart, Whole Foods, Safeway and other “big box” stores in this area. We do have many local markets in the area but things are VERY expensive in Hawaii and Maui is the most expensive of all the Hawaiian islands. You’ll probably have “sticker shock” when you see milk for $7 a gallon for the first time.
There is public transportation. We are right on a bus line. Parking is included for one vehicle.
BUG SPRAYING - Our Home Owners Association (HOA) for our condominium complex contracts for pest control spraying on a quarterly basis, typically the first Wednesday of February, May, August and November. Termites are the biggest problem in Hawaii and do the most amount of damage in a relatively short amount of time.
Maui is a tropical location and has a lot of unwelcome bugs; ants, termites, spiders, roaches, mosquitos, etc. The pest management company uses “safe” pesticides to treat for these bugs. The pesticides used are water based, “pet safe” and approved for application in food handling establishments. The pest management company usually posts a notice a about a week before they are on site, near the elevators and stairwells to let residents know the date and time that pesticides will be applied.
Keep all pets, service animals and children out the area during the treatment and until the product has dried – usually about 10-15 minutes. By renting our condo, you acknowledge and accept the application and use of pesticides and insecticides on the property and within our unit. As a condition of renting our unit you will provide access to our unit when the application is scheduled. Failure to allow access to the pest management company will result in a fee of $75.00 for the pest management company to return at a later date. You will be responsible for this fee if you do not allow the pest management company access to our condominium.
If you’re at all concerned about the treatment and spraying for pests/bugs, you should consider other accommodations. Bugs are everywhere in Hawaii and almost every hotel, condominium and Homeowners Association requires treatment to ensure the protection of their home and property.
