You simply cannot beat the view!

This unit has a great floor plan.
Approx. 700 sq. ft living space and 96 sq. ft. covered lanai. The ideal place to relax or plan your excursions.
Cozy, inviting, yet spacious you will feel like you found your 'Home in Paradise'!

Greet the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai when starting the day. Have breakfast on your own private lanai while you hear the blue ocean rolling in and wine while you watch the sun set. Go for a swim, the outer reef protects the shore line right in front of the building. Or sit on a chaise lounge, under a palm tree.

This place is quiet! All you hear is the ocean.
There is a pool area, but it is not below your lanai.
There is a street but it is exactly on the opposite side from where you are.
The natural breeze between the landscaped inner court yard (with koi pond) and the ocean circulates the air and keeps the place at a very comfortable temperature even without A/C.
You will sleep well at night, as it is never as hot as in nearby Lahaina.

The master bedroom provides a queen size bed, the second bedroom has two twin beds. They all have high quality mattresses. Sweet dreams!

A friend and I stayed here for four weeks. We felt right at home. The condo was well equipped and comfy. The owners were immediately available for any and all questions. The beach was lovely. Nothing negative to say, except we were sorry to leave. Wonderful experience; I would gladly stay here again.

Thank you for sharing your Place in Paradise with us!! The location is perfect, we loved how quiet the complex is and we can’t get over the absolutely gorgeous view!! It never gets old! We had such a wonderful trip and made countless memories with our children. We are so grateful for this experience and are sad to leave. We will definitely be back! Thank you!

September 2023
The condo itself was well furnished, good beds, kitchen had everything you could want. But, the most outstanding feature was the location. On the water, every afternoon we sit on the lanai and watch turtles feed on the reef less than 50 feet away. An easy walk 1 block to a market, coffee store and three excellent small restaurants / take out places. Although no beach sand on the property nice small beach park is right next door.

The view was beautiful, the space was nicely decorated and well kept. It was in a very good location, very close to the farmers market and restaurants. Proximity to the beach was amazing.

This is a nice property but what we liked most was the ocean-front aspect. It was great eating breakfast on the lanai while watching and listening to the surf.

We had an amazing vacation and couldn't have been happier with the condo. The location is wonderful. The view from the lanai is stunning...we watched the beautiful sunset every night, and some rainbows too. We enjoyed the pool a few times and easy drives to local beaches, stores, Whaler's Village, and downtown Lahaina. Cannot beat having two bedrooms and two full bathrooms for a family of 4- plenty of room for all of us. Owners were quick to respond when we had some plumbing trouble and the issue was fixed right away. No complaints and would stay again in a heartbeat if we're ever lucky enough to get to Maui again!

Enjoyed our stay and the view, the only thing lacking was the air conditioning. We were not able to sleep well with the heat and the windows open to let more cross ventilation and us being visible to the hallway and anyone walking by.Unfortunately we will stay somewhere else with a/c and bedroom privacy.

If you want the best view in Maui look no further than this property! The unit was exactly as promised and was clean and ready for us when we arrived. The owner was incredibly communicative and very accommodating. We couldn't be happier with the location, experience, and memories made here. We will definitely be renting this unit again in the future! The winds off the ocean kept the whole place a perfect temperature the whole stay. No noise or other guest issues, and we could hear the ocean at all times. Super relaxing and perfect for what we hoped for.

WOW! The view off the lanai is spectacular! Probably the best of any place we’ve ever stayed during our many trips to Maui. We absolutely loved having our coffee out there every morning while watching the waves. Polarized sunglasses are great for cutting the glare coming off the water to make it easier to see the turtles cruising by. Depending on the tide, it can be a bit challenging getting across the rocky beach area to play in the huge sandy bottom part the ocean just beyond, but grab your water shoes and you’ll be fine. And the pool is great as well. The condo itself was clean and comfortable and a great home base for our Maui adventures. Multiple grocery stores within walking distance make it super convenient to save some money by using the kitchen to eat in. We had a small issue with the screen door latch being a bit loose, but Elisabeth and Doug were super responsive and friendly, and got it taken care of quickly (thanks for bringing the delicious mango along with your screwdriver!!). We hope we get the chance to stay here again in the future. Thanks so much for sharing your awesome place!

Had a great visit at this perfectly located condo on the water. The neighborhood was wonderful, shopping close by, great parking, and well maintained grounds. The beach in front is great for a relaxing swim, plenty of lawn chairs for lounging and the bbq area kept clean. Thank you Elisabeth for hosting such a treasure!

This was my first time to Hawaii. We came for a wedding. Elisabeth’s place was perfect. I loved waking up and going to sleep to the sound of the waves. The view was beautiful. We saw turtles! I’d stay here again and highly recommend paki Maui

We had a wonderful week in Lahaina! The condo is very comfortable and well situated, with a health food store, cafes, and a supermarket within a block or two. The view is unbeatable. We saw turtles and whales almost every day from the lanai. It was really easy to communicate with the hosts, who made sure we were comfortable and had all the info we needed. Mahalo!

We had a fantastic stay at Elisabeth and Douglas's condo in Honokowai! The condo was exactly as described in the posting. It was very clean with a vase of fresh flowers on the dining room table upon our arrival. We thoroughly enjoyed going to sleep each night listening to the waves roll into shore. Even better was waking up each morning to sit on the lanai and watch the whales breeching and rolling in the morning sun. The condo is conveniently located in very close proximity to many local eateries and grocery stores. A grocery/deli called the Farmers Market located just across the street was an almost daily stop for smoothies, fruit bowls or delicious soups. The Maui bus system is a very easy, cost-effective way to get around the immediate area and the bus stops are very close by. The bus is a 30-minute ride from the great restaurants and shops in Lahaina and drops you off in the heart of downtown so you don't have to find and pay for parking. If your primary goal is to sunbathe, snorkel and hang out at the beach, the condo complex is a great place to be and if you want to explore the most beautiful beaches on the west coast of Maui, there are miles of beaches a short walk away. A heartfelt thank you to Elisabeth and Doug for sharing your condo with us!

Can't say enough about the view and location! Not only is the ocean RIGHT THERE, the sound of it is incredible. The unit itself is great and everything you need from pots & pans to boogie boards & beach towels is provided. The hosts are wonderful and accessible. Groceries, restaurants, coffee are all across the street and an easy walk. There is also a public beach right next door for a larger sandy beach. Can't wait to return!

This property had a gorgeous Oceanfront view from the lanai and living room. We saw whales from the lanai which was such an amazing sight. It was a relaxing, comfortable and well equipped two bedroom property. The location is perfect, close to restaurants and a grocery store. It has an authentic Hawaiian feel. I highly recommend this property.

We had an awesome time in your beautiful, comfy and well-appointed condo we wanted for nothing! We were so sad to leave, but super happy with all the memories made. We saw many whales and a handful of turtles. The view……OMG the view. The sunsets…….wow! The sound of the ocean + fountain in the pond sent us off to sleep each night. Mahalo Elisabeth for having us. We feel very blessed to have stayed in your little piece of heaven. It’s a shame the beach stairs are closed off as it does make it difficult for those less abled to swim in the ocean. That was the one and only negative thing about our stay.

This condo was wonderful. Two bedrooms (all very comfortable beds) and two full bathrooms makes traveling with family super easy. Elisabeth's condo is centrally located to shopping and grocery stores and we could get to Kaanapali within 7 minutes and Lahaina within 15 minutes. It is also located in a quiet building and has a fantastic view from the lanai. We saw four sea turtles one morning and numerous whale spouts. Bring your snorkeling gear because there are tons of fish in and around the rocks and reef. The condo was very comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, dishes and spices. It also has sand mats, beach towels, boogey boards, and noodles for the pool. There are chairs and chaise lounge chairs on the grass overlooking the ocean. If you aren't on your lanai at sunset, grabbing a seat on the grass is the next best place to see the extraordinary colors. There are ceiling fans in every room and extra stand alone fans to keep the air moving in the condo. We really didn't need anything else. There is a great coffee place, Cruzin Cafe, just a short walk down the street. Elisabeth was so easy to contact and work with. You won't want to miss out on this gem!

Location was very convenient to Kaanapali and Lahaina, as well as Kapala. Very easy to access main highway. Unit's oceanfront location was great! However, property itself needs TLC and updating.

We really enjoyed our stay, the fresh breeze made up for no ac, yes that was rough as it was 80 night and day but it was still a good time. Seeing the turtles right out front every day was just the best part. The beds were basic beds, it is pretty dated but I know they put in a lot of work making it nice over Covid. It was relaxing and in a good location. We would stay again.

First off, yes, ok, this building is an older building with no air conditioning. Let’s get that out of the way because that’s the only negative if you’re staying here in July. BUT, take a look out the balcony and your worries will be forgotten real quick! What a treat to wake up each morning to beautiful blue water and even more relaxing to listen to the soothing ocean waves at night! 2 bed/2bath was perfect for my family of 4. Cute little kitchen to make a meal for a night and great balcony to sit on when you’re bringing back something yummy from the food truck park down the street. The beach out front had many visiting turtles and many calm beaches along the ocean front for a nice walk at sunset. The owner was very nice and quickly addressed a minor issue with a light switch. All you have to do is follow the directions in the binder and all will be perfect! There is a pool and jacuzzi to rest your weary feet. And it’s an easy walking distance to various food options. I would definitely stay here again because it’s quiet and peaceful. Mahalo, Elizabeth!

Perfect stay! We are snorkelers and scuba divers. The beach right outside was wonderful with turtles everyday! Close to diving destinations. It was the right size for my family of 4 and loved the view, Beach, ocean, balcony. Food truck vendors right up the street were great for dinners. No AC but fans were adequate for us. Thank you for allowing us to stay for the week!

My best friend and I traveled to celebrate our 50th birthdays. This condo was everything we expected it to be! The beach was excellent, and we swam with turtles everyday! The reef provided shallow enough water, and yet still had a variety of fish to look at. The shops near by were great as well, especially the coffee shop and the fish market.. The only thing we wish would have been different was the size of the kitchen. Overall we rated our vacation a 10/10!

Leslie Y.
August 2022
Property was well stocked; appreciated the 2nd bathroom and all the fans but it was still really really warm. Could use A/C. Beach access was difficult as the steps were in disrepair. My kids loved the pool and perfected their underwater handstands. Our favorite thing to do was sit on the lanai, listen to the waves and watch the sunset. Truly paradise and we'll never forget it. Mahalo.

July 2022
This property is just as described. The location is convenient to many of the sights we were interested in. The beach area out front often had low tide so we were able to be on the sand and see tide pools, along with some snorkeling. The place was clean and perfect for a family of four. The two bathrooms was a nice feature. The place is kind of warm with no air conditioning. Even though the trade winds do blow frequently, the angle of the doors and windows didn’t seem to allow for a regular breeze to cool the place down. There are fans and they were enough to make us comfortable. We would for sure stay here again.

This condo was amazing. We had everything we needed from soap to towels, the room was quiet, the location was amazing, and the view was astonishing. There are multiple restaurants within walking distance that are more than worth the visit, as well as a grocery store and ABC store. Views from the balcony really are that good, and it was nice to be able to sit on the couch and listen to the waves every day. I’d definitely like to come back here one day!

Couldn’t get any closer to the water. Owner very helpful. Small kitchen but well stocked. Beach items/towels were very welcomed. Comfortable apartment though 2nd bathroom is awkward as the sink is part of the hall and not private. Beds comfortable. Some of the best sunsets I’ve seen right from the lanai.

This place is all you need for a great Maui vacation. It’s on a beach with great swimming, snorkeling, turtle and whale watching. Across the street from two of the best fish restaurants/markets on the island. There is no AC, but the ceiling fans and extra plug in fans work just great. Elisabeth, the host, is very helpful and quick to reply. I was told the rental didn’t have any beach equipment, but found it had two beach chairs, beach umbrella, and two boogie boards. Not sure if they may have been possibly left by a previous renter, but glad they were there. Larry, the office manager at the Paki Maui building is very nice and helpful too.

We just completed a two-week stay in this property and absolutely loved it. We watched whales, sea turtles, and beautiful sunsets from the lanai. The condo is nicely furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped for those who wish to prepare their meals. The owners provide helpful information and ensure you are well prepared for your stay. This was our second stay here and we would love to return for a third visit!

Lovely condo and owners. Responded right away to any needs. The view is amazing. Able to just watch the whales from the balcony. Love that there is a little beach area and easily can swim in the ocean. Good little area for snorkeling. Great coffee and farmers market just across the street and a bunch of food trucks just down the road. Easily able to walk to a lot of little shops. Quiet complex and lovely garden area in the center. Overall, great area and place for a much needed vacation.

Ocean views were spectacular. While sipping morning coffee on the balcony, you could quite literally see whales breaching offshore. Great location. Bad Ass Coffee across the street for morning coffee, and Fish Market Maui 100 yards down the street for delicious fish dinners. Wonderful, relaxing stay!

An amazing place with an incredible view! The unit is well equipped and very cosy. Everything was nice and clean.We also appreciated the little folder with the restaurant and take-out recommendations. We tried a lot of them and all meals were delicious- without spending a fortune. Elisabeth is such a warm and nice person! We had a wonderful time - it simply was the perfect vacation place!

You cannot beat the views provided at this VRBO, the ocean is literally just feet away from the building and the courtyard is a beautiful tropical garden with Koi fish and a little turtle that we would try to find everyday. The location is easy to access and not far from all of our activities that we had planned. Elisabeth was wonderful to communicate with. She was off island while we were there but was quick to respond to emails. We stayed 15 days and it literally became our home away from home.

If you are looking for a well-equipped place that delights your eyes with ocean views and morning rainbows this is the place.

This place is so amazing and awesome! The view is incredible and about as good as you could ever imagine. The building is quiet and tranquil, but when you walk inside the unit and open the large sliding glass door, the loud rush of the waves below and the ocean breeze fills the air and there's no place you'd rather be. We spent hours upon hours just lounging on the balcony patio taking in all the beauty. When we decided to venture out of the complex, there are numerous conveniences and cool spots nearby. Several times we visited bars and restaurants at some of the larger fancier hotels and that was a lot of fun, but we came to Maui to be in close touch with the ocean and it doesn't get any better than how close you feel to the ocean while staying at this paradise home. On top of everything, Elisabeth is such a pleasure to interact with and extends a warm and positive energy to every interaction. We can't say enough positive things about the experience staying here. Thanks!

Just open up the sliding glass doors and let the ocean waves gently rock you to sleep. Amazing location just steps away from shore. Thank you for being such a gracious host, Elisabeth. We wish you all the best.

The view is truly amazing. We did see turtles almost every day, and gorgeous sunsets every evening. And...the sound of the waves! The location is great, within walking distance to restaurants, a coffee shop, snorkel rentals and an ABC store. Wonderful hosts. Elisabeth was the most thoughtful and accommodating owner we have ever worked with. Hope to come back soon.`

My family can not say enough good things about this place. My wife, high school son, college daughter and I woke up every morning to the ocean views and finished our nights with the same! The kids played on the beach and sunned in the grassy area. Between the beach, pool and wash machine :) , we had plenty of water sports to preoccupy our time. The location is 10 minutes from Lahaina. Parking is plentiful here and the location is quiet. There is a front desk area, staffed by very friendly and informative people. Elisabeth sent over exact details on where to go, how to access and suggestions on what to do, plus some Hawaiian words. Our family would highly recommend booking this location! Mahalo to Elisabeth and Douglas! To those heading this way - Aloha and have fun!

Beautiful view, but apartment is dated and stale air inside apartment. There is no A/C. Also very old rugs so beware if you have allergies. Some of the outlets also do not work. The positive here is the view was wonderful!

Our condo was perfect for the three of us. Beautiful ocean/beach view. Althought it was not air conditioned, we still felt comfortable with the breezes and fans provided. Only negative - and this is not the condo but the property itself - is that access to the beach was almost impossible. Stairs were not adequate because of hugh rocks. Other than that our stay was perfect and we look forward to a return visit.

If you like hanging out on the deck and listening to the waves it's difficult to imagine a better location. It also has good access to a swimmable beach, restaurants across the street, and comfortable chairs you can relax in by the water. Bedrooms are a bit dated - but I think you'll only want to sleep in them anyway. Elisabeth (one of the owners) could not have been sweeter - she was very responsive to questions, and gave us a bunch of awesome tips that make our trip even better.

Fantastic views right from your own private Lanai. We enjoyed watching sea turtles on the reef in the afternoon. Relaxing and quiet atmosphere. Comfortable accommodations. Perfect for families who want a low key, ocean front experience without the hustle and bustle of the big high rises nearby. We consider this the perfect vacation spot for our Maui adventures. Within 10 minutes to all our favorite snorkeling spots, beaches and shopping. Incredible sunset views every evening to wind down from a day on the beach! Fantastic Farmers Market with yummy, local and natural foods right across the street within walking distance!

We had a wonderful time at this Maui property. The owner is very responsive so check in was easy. The view of the ocean and sunsets were exactly what we were looking for. We were originally looking for a first floor unit, but the second floor turned out to be much better. It was much easier to see the turtles next to shore with the elevated vantage point. The kitchen was well stocked and came in handy to cook the Mahi that we caught. The location was great with a fish market and awesome food trucks a short walk away. We would recommend staying at this Paki Maui property.

As first timer visiting Maui we got a real million dollar view, we enjoyed to have breakfast on the Lanai while have the waves close by. Sitting in the afternoon and watch Turtles at the Reef,. We highly recommended that well equipped condo, the communication with the Owner Elisabeth and Dough was our best experience ever.

Fabulous location. Great to be right beside the park, beach walking/running trail, farmers market, bus. Loved the pool for a cool dip and hot tub for after snorkeling. Fantastic view. Owners friendly and accomidating. Lovely grass area to relax in front of the ocean. Two single beds great for kids. Clean unit with all you need for a great holiday!

Thank you so much for opening your home to us. Our vacation was outstanding... we have only one complaint... our stay was too short!! Your home is beautiful and the view is abosolutely amazing!! It was really hard to close the lanai doors and say goodbye. We hope to vacation again there soon - already looking into next year!! You've been a pleasure... polite and prompt with email responses... and the security deposit was refunded in a timely manner. Thank you again for sharing your slice of paradise with us!! Oh... and we did have the amazing pleasure of seeing three sea turtles... what a treat that was!! We have an abundance of memories to cherish forever!! Warm Regards... Wally and Katherine

The location is beautiful -- it really is right on the water and the view is spectacular! If you do nothing else (which is unlikely, but still), you can just sit on the couch in the living room, or on lanai and look at the ocean -- it changes constantly and every morning you are bound to see several beautiful full-span rainbows. During low-tides (mornings) people swim and snorkel right in front of the property. Otherwise, Kaanapali beach is 3-5 min drive away (parking was abundant and free) -- fantastic snorkeling there. Property is located on a quiet street - if you like to walk or jog, it's perfect. There's a nice laundry room on the floor; elevators, and a business center downstairs where you can print your airline boarding passes for free. The inner courtyard of the property looks and feels like a tropical garden complete with exotic plants and a fish pond. The unit itself is perfect -- the photos and the descriptions are spot on, though, they don't do it justice -- it's even better in person. It's very clean and nicely decorated; lots of mirrors make it feel more spacious and extend that beautiful view that I mentioned. For our family of 4 with 2 kids, it was great to have that second bedroom with twin beds for the kids. There are 2 modern bathrooms and a contemporary kitchen that has everything you might need. Ceiling fans in every room create a gentle breeze -- it was never too warm or hot. There's high speed Internet and a wireless network. We appreciated the detailed instructions and a list of useful information that we got from Elisabeth, as well as the binder with restaurant recommendations and other fun/relevant facts. Communicating with Elisabeth was always a pleasure -- we'd recommend this property and its owners to anyone; and we'd love to return sometime soon :)

We really enjoyed your condo. Being in Hawaii my entire life, I have never stayed in a place that close to the water before. It was modern and clean. It was GREAT! Thanks again for a carefree vacation rental, great communication, and opening your home to us for a relaxing week.

We were a family of four with two teens and the place was perfect! It was large enough to accomodate everyone, with two bathrooms, and even a fold out murphy bed in the living room. It was super clean, had everything one would need, including coffee pot, beach towels, hair dryer, and internet. The ocean view is perfect! And in front, there is a grassy area for lounging as well as a beach. I would totally recommend this to anyone coming to the west side of Maui, near Lahaina and Kanapali.

March 2012
We had an excellent stay at your place and the location is the best possible, we went to a few beaches and found that the one next to the place was the best still as it was baby friendly and snorkeling was good for beginners like me! Thank you again, I hope we can return here in the near future!

I never new Maui was so crazy beautiful! And your place was absolutely fabulous! Perfect perfect! I loved how close the ocean was to the condo and that little protected shallow area for snorkelling and swimming. The condo itself was very clean and contemporary looking. You have a great place and would love love love to rent it again next year!

March 2012
We are a family of 4 (with 2 teenagers) and this was our first trip to Maui. Wow!! We'd come back in a flash. The condo was clean, comfortable and had a spacious feeling with the mirrored walls. I liked the granite counters! The listing description was accurate and the kitchen was well stocked! Appreciated the BBQ area. We loved the balcony with a full view of the ocean where the whales were a special thrill to see (bring binoculars). The location was fine for us; it was very quiet and no street noise could be heard. Elisabeth was a pleasure to deal with. Her directions to the condo made it easy to find. Her 'Good to Know' information sheet very helpful. The binder in the condo with restaurant menus very much appreciated. The Farmer's Market a few steps away was fun.....great to buy locally made jams/soaps/coffee to bring home! Beach was suitable for snorkelling, with a rocky entry in places. All of us felt very much at home here. I would definitely recommend it to family/friends. Mahalo Elisabeth! Can we come again?

January 2012
Dear Doug and Elisabeth, Thank you very much for renting us this beautiful condo. The two weeks we spent were absolutely breath taking. From biking down the volcano to lazing around in the surf in front of the condo. The experience was great. Once again, thank you for having us. We had a great time.

This condo met our needs completely. It was extremely well equipped (someone has given a lot of thought to what visitors might need during their stay), clean, and the view was tremendous! The condo was perfect for myself and my husband plus my mother in law and one of our daughters. Everyone had a comfortable place to sleep and the mattresses and new wall bed were great. The constant background noise of the crashing waves made me always aware that I was indeed on holiday! The view of the ocean off the lanai was remarkable and I loved having my coffee and just staring at the waves - I kept forgetting to read my book. The condo is well located. We particularly enjoyed the farmer's market across the street. The is also a fabulous spa (Zensations) that I would also recommend. We spent some time touring the beaches of the island but found that we were quite content to stay on the property to enjoy the ocean, beach and pool. The BBQ set-up was great and made all our meals special and easy. Thank you to Elisabeth for her hospitatlity and warmth. We couldn't have asked for a better break from our Canadian winter.

We had the most wonderful vacation with our family and the accommodations were extremely comfortable!! The pictures posted on the listing are beautiful and accurate, but the condo and the views are even more beautiful when you are actually there!! Words can hardly describe the incredible view from the lanai and the sunsets are truly amazing. We would plan our days around being at the condo to see the sun go down every evening. The location is quiet, beautiful, comfortable and close to anything you want to do, whether during the day or in the evening. We were able to walk to the grocery store. There is a fabulous fresh fish market right across the street, and then we would cook our dinner in the outdoor grilling area. We had the best crab cakes ever!!! Falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of the ocean were two of our son's favorite moments of the vacation, as he took full advantage by sleeping on the Murphy bed in the living room. Down one flight of stairs and across 20 feet of grass will bring to your own personal ocean paradise with gorgeous fish and sea turtles. We spent many hours snorkeling, not only right outside the condo, but just north of this location in Napilli Bay and Kapalua Bay. It was amazing!!! I could go on and on, but I will end by saying that we would absolutely come back and highly recommend Doug and Elisabeth's condo to anyone!!! The vacation went by way too fast, but it also gives us so much to look forward to when we return to Maui :-)

There are three things about this condo, which suited my family of four well. First, the Marine life right outside the condo is spectacular. We went to the aquarium, which is exceptional, and I was able to see most of the marine life in the coral reef you see in the above picture including turtles, eels, and many surgeon fish. I swam with the turtles almost everyday, and I mean within three feet (don't touch them though). Secondly, the location to Lahina and the rest of the island is perfect. Grocery stores and parks are very close, but not too close. Three, the lodging was great. My wife and I enjoyed listening to the waves so much that we slept on the murphy bed every night and the kids each enjoyed their own room. The kitchen is very hospitable for cooking and the lanai is very enjoyable. Elisabeth was great to work with and highly recommend this condo.

Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your condo. It was the cleanest and best equipped unit we have ever rented. The view was beautiful. We saw sea turtles in the morning and afternoon and were able to enjoy the beach as well as the pool area. The sunsets were stellar. Having two bedrooms and two bathrooms was a bonus for our family. This unit is well worth the money and the location was wonderful. It is well worth the cost as it has many amenities. The grounds and pool area are well maintained.

We just came back from a week's stay at this unit. It is well furnished with updated kitchen. It really felt like we were right in the water. What we also liked about this condo was that it is not too large, low key, and very family friendly. (The same goes for the town of Honokowai as well.) In fact, my 5 and 8 year old daughters made lots of new friends there just hanging out at the swimming pool, and it made the stay all the more enjoyable for them. Town of Lahaina is only a short drive away, and we went in there for a stroll and nice ice cream or shaved ice treats several times. Ono ice cream was outstandingly good! (Thanks, Elisabeth, for your recommendation!) The location was good for visiting some interesting sights - the dragon's teeth, blow hole, swinging bridge, etc. Over all, we were very pleased with our stay, and if we have a chance to go back to Maui, we will definitely stay at this condo again! And last, but not least, the owners are wonderful people. Elisabeth was very responsive to my e-mail inquiries and requests, and it was the most pleasant experience to communicate with her both by e-mail and phone. Very highly recommended!!

We walked into the condo and paniced as there was no air. We opened the windows and doors to the lanai and instantly knew why no air. It simply was not needed. The constant breeze from the island trade winds was so refreshing I can't imagine ruining it with artificial air conditioning. Everything was provided, we only needed groceries. Comfortable bed and room for at least 6 to sleep. Our only complaint is that the clock seams to run way too fast here! Mahalo! to Elisabeth & her husband.

You can't better than this when it comes to ocean views. We woke up every morning to ocean waves right off the Balcony. Saw turtles swimming too! Wonderful location! About 5 min to downtown Lahaina. The kitchen came in handy when it came to making our own most know food is not cheap in Maui. When we did go out to breakfast, the Gazebo was only about 5 min away(best breafast place on the island very close the the condo). We also used the bbq grill near the poolside. Our daughter got to swim in the pool while we fired up some steaks next to her. There are tables there too so you can enjoy your dinner while watching the sunset. The condo was updated and very clean. You don't get that funky out of date 70's style with this place. I was very surprised how nice it was. The description was very much accurate. We really enjoyed our time here and if you have 1-2 kids, this cozy place is perfect for you! Elisabeth the owner was very helpful with anything we needed. She even gave us tips on where to go when taking the ferry to the island of Lana'i. You won't be dissapointed with this condo. We definitely plan on staying here again when we return! Thanks for a wonderful time!

Douglas and Elisabeth, Thank you! We had a wonderful vacation and we just loved staying in your beautiful condo! We loved listening to the ocean - and you just can't beat this view! Thank you again! Aloha. The P. Ohana

I have visited the island many times over the last forty years, from my days as a backpacking camper, to staying at some of the fancy shmancy resorts, where you have to watch your Ps and Qs closely. My two visits to this Paki Maui condo have been the best, by far, for many reasons. The condo is spotless, pretty and affordable, with their own private garden and Koi pool. We could relax like we were at home. We watched whales jump while breakfasting on our patio and saw beautiful sunsets over Molokai. We snorkled in the calm, reef protected area, swam in the pool and sun bathed in the soft grass. It was nature in her purest form. The neighborhood is wonderful, from the fresh fish restaurants across the street to the specialty stores and gourmet coffee shop, across from a park, a block away. We found the owners to be far more than landlords. They were friends. They know their paradise inside and out and gave us great tips on places to go. There really is something to the Aloha spirit. "At the end of the day", we love ending our day at Paki Maui. Thank you for having us. We'll be back!

SEASIDE PARADISE The days began with breakfast on the lanai having a direct view of the ocean, often seeing whales and sometimes sea turtles. The temperature was between 70 and 80. Usually we took a beach walk starting at the nearby park and then went down to the comfy Paki Maui lounge chairs on the grass right next to the beach for sunning, reading, and swimming in the protected ocean area. We did some shopping, enjoyed good nearby restaurants, heard good jazz, and played some golf, but always tried to be on our own quiet lanai for the gorgeous sunsets. The condo was perfect -- beautifully renovated with a smashing kitchen (we do like to cook!) The beds were very good, the place was very clean, and the grounds were lovely. Being on the second floor had the best ocean view, and though there is an elevator, we always chose to walk the one story down to the beach. We Midwesterners love Maui and hope to return to this condo next year -- and would certainly recommend this property to friends.
