ALOHA and thank you for considering our home for your Maui vacation! Our condo was completely renovated in Dec. 2011 and we hope you like what we've done.

Just 10 feet from the ocean and located on the second floor, you will not be disappointed! Upon entering the condo, you will be drawn immediately to our spacious lanai (balcony). The panoramic views of Moloka'i, Lana'i and the ocean are amazing! The sandy beach in Kahana is directly adjacent to the condo and provides excellent swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing.

Once you're able to pull yourself from the outside view (and the turtles that feed directly below our condo), the interior is also warm and inviting. The calm, modern setting is perfect for curling up on the couch in the cozy, living area. Relax while reading a book, catching up on the latest news or spending a romantic evening watching the sun go down.

When it's time to go to sleep, the comfortable king-size bed is not far away. Open all the windows to allow the sound of the ocean waves and breezes lull you to sleep. When you awaken feeling rested and refreshed, the ocean will be the first thing you see in the morning.

Our fully-equipped, modern kitchen and bathroom with full tub and shower have all the conveniences of home. The thought of staying in a hotel will become a thing of the past.

Pohailani is located in quiet Kahana, nestled between the bustling resorts of Ka'anapali and Kapalua. Within walking distance, you will find fine restaurants and shopping in the Kahana Gateway Center. If you prefer other options, you're only a short drive to Kapalua, Napili, Ka'anapali or Lahaina. Famous beaches, world-class golf courses, Whaler's Village, a farmers' market, grocery stores and other amenities are just minutes away.

We hope you will love our home as much as we do and come back year after year! Mahalo!!

Great accommodations, just as presented, a gem in Maui.

It was so beautiful and relaxing and everything all the reviews said it would be. The ocean is literally right off of the Lanai. The views at all the different times of the day were exquisite, the sunsets, the sound of the waves putting you to sleep at night all were so calming. We loved watching the sea turtles from the Lanai. And the condo was so comfortable with everything we needed. And, even though the beach is a 5 min walk we found when looking for other more famous beaches that the one closest to the condo was the quietest and had the calmest waves. Thank you for this lovely place for our time to get away. We needed it!

I really enjoyed the view and watching sea turtle coming on the shore every day. I totally loved it!

Located right on the ocean. Best views available sitting on the 2nd floor balcony. Saw many turtles, kite boarders and snorkeling. Condo was clean. Stores and restaurants nearby. Great sunsets too.

What a great location and THE VIEW!!! I will never forget the beautiful view from this place. Close to all the major places in Lahaina area and you get your own parking space which is a hard to find in Hawaii. Great place for a couple to relax and enjoy seeing turtles everyday from your own lanai (balcony). Highly recommended to everyone!

The condo was perfect for my husband and i for our honeymoon. You can not ask for a better location. Its right on the ocean with perfect sunset views. Lots of sea turtles and beaches in both directions. More cozy and private then the big resorts on either side as well.

Overall was a beautiful 10 days in this condo right on the water in Kahana. Wonderful sleeps listening to the ocean and the bed was great.

What an amazing week. Joe and Naomi's place is beautiful condo. Right on the edge of the water with stunning views and magnificent sunsets. Close to many beautiful beaches. Bob from Philly

Great view of of the sun setting over Molokai and Lanai from second story balcony. Convenient location. Parking space right at the bottom of the steps. Convenient access to the highway. Just north of Lahaina. Close to great snorkeling in Honolua Bay. Not very big, but a great home base for your daily excursions on Maui.

The view in this studio is to die for! You open the door and the first thing you see is the ocean. Literally right on top of the water! We watched turtles non-stop from the lanai. Everything you need is in this perfect little condo and the hosts are wonderful! It was truly a perfect stay.

Amazing stay! We were able to see turtles & whales from the lanai. Has all the necessities for a great stay, and close to great beaches.

Having been to multiple Hawaiian islands multiple times, my wife and I have stayed in a variety of accommodations from ultra luxury resorts to budget hotels. This is by far one of the best locations and accommodations we have ever enjoyed on the islands. The “on-the-ocean” view from the private lanai is remarkable. Countless whale sightings and sea turtles nibbling along the rocks was readily available anytime you walked out of the condo. A full sized well stocked kitchen provided convenient meal prep and dining space. The king size bed was incredibly comfortable and listening to the waves crashing through the night was hypnotically serene. The bathroom size, counter space and storage was ample for two. And the jacuzzi tub/shower was a plus. The final component that made our stay carefree and convenient was the reserved parking right next to the condo. The geographical location is also a BIG advantage. You are a 5-10 minute drive to Lahaina Town and 5-10 minutes away from top snorkeling spots on Maui. Be sure to check out Slaughterhouse Beach, just 7 minutes north for a beautiful beach framed by volcanic cliffs and magnificent snorkeling.

Joe and Naomi’s place has really nice oceanfront views. We enjoyed watching the sunset every evening from the lanai. We watched whales one morning, and that was an enjoyable experience. We appreciated the King size bed, four large ceiling fans, a large size fridge, and the beach chairs and coolers we could take to different beaches for snorkeling. We would definitely consider staying there as long as the price stays reasonable in the future.

The lanai is amazing for whale- and turtle-watching. The space is perfect for two people, and the location is minutes away from some of our favorite beaches on Maui. The second-story corner unit is great for quiet mornings and evenings, and included everything we needed: Beach chairs, umbrella, cooler. Would highly recommend!

This cute space salvaged what was otherwise a rough trip. It had a beautiful view at all times of day and night - we enjoyed watching the whales play in the horizon every morning. Several beaches close by were nice for relaxing during downtime.

We enjoyed our stay at your nice home! The view and wildlife sightings can not be beat! Whales and turtles every day! And had everything we needed in one place! Thanks so much for the wonderful week!

The view from the linai was wonderfully with Lina’i to the left and Molakai to the right. My only complaint was the very noisy neighbor directly below us. People can hear him at Honolulu. Other than that, the condo was exactly what we wanted.

November 2022
I couldn't of been happier with this location. Not only were we able to see sea turtles eating off the rocks every morning but we were just steps away from the shore. The unit had everything we could ever need and was local to stores/restaurants. Very safe and quiet but still close enough to night life. When I go back to Maui, I will be staying at this unit. It will not be my home away from home. Super pleased with the whole island experience!!

This is an absolutely fantastic spot. We were blown away by the view and how it is quite literally right on the ocean. This place has everything you need and is about 5 steps from the beach. Very clean and easy to check in/out. Thank you to Joe & Naomi for making things so seamless!

Photos of this property do not do it justice. As soon as you walk through the front door, and look through to the balcony, all you see beyond that is the ocean - and a few turtles popping their heads up to say hello! Location is perfect. The property has everything you need to be completely self sufficient - all the way down the beach chairs and umbrellas to make your days at the beach even better. If I was to return to Maui, I would definitely stay here again!


Fairen S.

What a sweet stay! Loved the location and the view was to die for! Going to sleep with the sound of the ocean waves each night was a dream come true!

My husband and I went to Maui for his 30th birthday and honeymoon and Joe and Naomi's property was better than we could have ever imagined! It was literally on the beach, which was very secluded and intimate. We swam next to two turtles and woke up one morning to one laying on the beach right outside our door. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! It was a walk away from the grocery store and awesome restaurants. We barely had to use our rental car. It was very clean and they had all the necessities. We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon thanks to Joe and Naomi! :) We plan on returning to Maui in the future and hope to stay at their place again!

October 2022
Our experience with this property was tops! The owners were very responsive and provided excellent information about the unit, the neighborhood, directions around the island, and more! Comfy amenities, excellent ocean front balcony where we could hang out and watch the turtles all day long. There were so many! There is a beach right next door to the unit. The parking space is right next to the unit as well- it's all right there! The pool in the complex is super relaxing and beautiful. I would absolutely stay here again and again!

The quintessential Maui place to stay. The quieter part of the western side with lovely bays and resorts very closely. The place itself is amazing, well equipped, a great lanai, a view to die for. Got all the amenities you’ll need too. If I were to nitpick, the ac unit is very very loud but not really an issue if you’re used to white noise.


Bruce C.
August 2022
Great location - a bit quieter than Kaanapali, but still close to Lahaina, Whalers Village, and right beside a nice swimmable beach. Lanai is spacious with turtles swimming right in front of the Lanai every day. A great place at a reasonable rate!

Stayed here back in 2015 and really enjoyed it. Now that covid is "going away" we decided to come back to maui. Saw it was available again and immediately reached out to get it this year. It's just the right size for a couple. MASSIVE lanai to watch the sunset from, watch the turtles and the SUP folks doing their thing. Parking is my #1 pet peeve in hawaii and this place has it's own private spot right next to the stairs. The location is perfect with plenty of places within walking distance and even more within driving distance.

August 2022
My wife and I chose this location for our anniversary vacation. I don't know if I can do justice to the amazing week we had here. Rainbows every morning, sunsets every evening, and turtles every day! The location is perfect, just past the main "resort row," allowing easy access to shopping (both souvenirs and groceries) and dining but without constant traffic outside. You are literally feet from the ocean, but the second-story setting gives an even better view, along with additional privacy. There was a TV and A/C, but we never felt the need to turn either on, the natural setting and climate was that perfect. We don't get to Hawai'i as often as we'd like (how many mainlanders do, really?), but when we do we would definitely stay here again. Thank you, Naomi and Joe!

August 2022
My husband and I have stayed in this area often (and even in the same complex), but this unit definitely had more to offer than the others we have rented. The owners graciously had beach chairs and umbrellas and even coolers that we could take on the beach. It was perfect for our vacation.


Destiny K.

We had a wonderful time at the condo! Great location, with a waterfront view! We loved the sound of the waves breaking right outside our door. Condo was comfortable and clean, would definitely stay here again.


Linda L.
July 2022
Had a wonderful time on my honeymoon. The home was even more beautiful in person. We spent every morning and sunset on our lanai, which really felt like you were floating on the water. We fell asleep to the waves every night. Joe and Naomi had all the beach supplies we needed and it was an amazing stay. I still miss looking for turtles every morning. Highly highly recommend!


Gary J.
June 2022
The location is beyond description! The view from the balcony is so stunning and beautiful that I cannot describe it with words. If you want to impress your sweetheart then this is the place. Everything you need is there including what you need for the beach. Close to restaurants, shopping, grocery, golf. The owner was very nice to us too. We can’t wait to get back there!

The condo was well furnished. The location is great. The check in was super. We are leaving it cleaner than we found it. There were dust piles and candy wrappers behind the night stands, piles of dirt behind toilet. But all in all a good experience.


ROBIN L.

Delivers on everything! From the moment you enter the unit you are welcome with the amazing ocean view. Location felt secluded enough for a quite romantic time ( celebrating 18th Anniversary), but within minutes from everything. It was our 1st time in Maui and we cant wait to go back. Thank you Joe & Naomi for sharing your beautiful home with us.

This is our second stay at this VRBO and once again we were very pleased with the location. There was a small hiccup with the cleanliness of the property when we first arrived - it did not appear as though the floor had been swept we found sand everywhere. The cleaning service also did not leave beach towels. A quick email and this was resolved the next day. We were treated to a high surf warning towards the end of our stay - this lasted 2.5 days with some very impressive waves crashing against the sea wall. If you love storms like we do, this was just an added bonus to our stay. Since the last time we were here, the property management added LED lighting to the ocean side of the building - unfortunately - this creates so much light, that you can no longer see all the wonderful stars when sitting on the lanai. This was probably done for safety reasons but actually took away from the overall experience. Even so, we are planning our next trip back here next year as long as costs don't skyrocket.

Everything about our stay at Joe and Naomi’s place was wonderful! Perfect location. Close enough to lots of Maui adventures, restaurants , shops etc. , but away enough to relax in a peaceful place each evening. The ocean waves, turtles and sunsets were our favorite memories from their special place. Thank you for Joe and Naomi for your patience and flexibility and for allowing us to experience this bucket list vacation! We’d love to return someday!!

We really enjoyed our stay at the condo, the ocean views were spectacular!



April 2022
This place is perfect! The ocean is so close it occasionally splashes up on the lanai! We slept every night with the lanai doors open letting the ocean sing us to sleep. The condo was clean, had everything we needed and the lanai was big and spacious. We spent every morning and evening there watching sea turtles, whales and a Hawaiian monk seal. The sunsets were amazing, as were the rainbows with both Lanai and Molokai in view. We are already making plans to return.

This is a studio condo but very large. Perfect for two adults. We spent most of our time on the spacious lanai. Very clean, comfortable furniture, great bed - a wonderful month stay.

We were very pleased with this unit. Waking up to the sound of the ocean and watching the whales breech was the icing on the cake .It doesn't get any better than this .The Washer and Dryer were a big plus . Overall a very nice unit . We hope to be back soon.

We had the best time at Joe & Naomi’s property. It is directly on the water, and the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful views. The location was perfect - a short drive to restaurants and coffee shops, as well as so many amazing beaches. Joe & Naomi were easy to communicate with and handled any issues that needed to be fixed. Highly recommend their beautiful condo, hoping I can get back there soon!

We stayed here to watch the whales, and this didn't disappoint. Clean. Didn't like the copper pans so I bought my own. Didn't like the window over the commode. However, I would stay here again for the amazing view. Beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers were a big plus.

This place had everything you need in a studio. We loved being able to sit out in the patio and watch the sunset and the morning rainbows. It was nice they had chairs and a cooler we could take to the beach. We slept with the patio doors open and can’t believe how loud the waves were at night.

We love this condo and location. The owners are easy to communicate with and we’re very fair in giving us some options because of the COVID stuff going on. Everything you need. The parking spot is a little tricky for me, but my husband is great at backing up. So he always drove when we were headed back to the condo. Turtles everyday right outside the lanai. My favorite phrase to my husband, “ I’m sorry I can’t hear you over the waves”.

Joe & Naomi were amazing hosts for our vacation to Maui. Their rental was perfect and absolutely beautiful. We will definitely be back!

This VRBO had the best views of the ocean as soon as you wake up in the morning. We loved having breakfast on the lanai and it being pretty central in Lahaina area. It was great they supplied beach chairs and umbrella. Only downside was that they had to shut off hot water due to a leak which was out of their control on our last full day. Would stay here again

My wife and I loved this spot. It was our escape and our (delayed) honeymoon after a crazy year and we couldn’t ask for a better location. We woke up and fell asleep to the sound of the waves, watched sea turtle swimming with our morning coffee and the sunsets from the lanai were incredible. We would absolutely return and/or highly recommend. Thanks for the memories!


Rachel F.
June 2021
There is truly nothing like waking up to the sound of the ocean and going to bed after watching a beautiful sunset! Small private beach just a few minute walk away however we often drove the 8-10 minutes to other beaches including Lahaina and napilli bay. Condo was nice, good for price point; appliances and features slightly outdated however we spent the majority of our time when at the condo on the wonderful lanai.

My husband and I just returned from a 5 night stay in this beautiful studio condo. It is actually as pictures describe and other reviewers also. We explored in our rental car all over Maui; Road to Hana (definitely take motion sicknesss med if prone) and another day on the southern route. But seriously you could spend your days at this condo and never leave. Spend your evenings too, with groceries because you can grill or cook in. Beautiful sunsets beautiful sunrises, comfortable bed, indoor and outdoor furnishings. Proximity to ocean cannot be better! Trust me when I say this unit is the best for comfort and views of ocean.


Tim R.
March 2015
This was a fantastic set up. Quiet street, awesome view of the ocean - saw a lot of whales while dining on the lanai at sunset. The only downside, which ended up being significant, is the waves crash against the concrete wall below the condo. It often shakes the whole building and there is no sound barrier in this airy condo. We ended up having to sleep with ear plugs in and run the A/C unit just to try to cover the noise and get a good night's sleep. If not for that, this would have been a 5 star rating for sure. But hard to rate high when you can't sleep.

We just returned from our very first trip to Maui and stayed here for 5 nights. It is conveniently located and the price is very affordable. The view is amazing!!! My favorite time was morning coffee on the lanai where we saw whales and turtles every day :). It is a corner condo on the second floor of a two story unit, very quiet and very private. As advertised, it IS literally 10 feet from the water. The second floor gives you a better view than those on the first floor. When we were at the condo, mainly early morning and late evening, we spent the majority of our time on the lanai so the efficiency of the space was perfect for us. The bed is good. Very nice place and I highly recommend it! Would definitely stay here again.


Duncan G.
February 2015
We spent two weeks in this lovely condo. The view is fabulous! From the lanai, you are only feet away from the ocean. Sea turtles swim directly below the lanai. The condo is on the second floor of a two story building and we found it to be very quiet even though there is a busy street directly behind the building. The sound of the ocean waves totally drowns out any street noise. The assigned parking spot is the best it can be - right beside the stairwell to the condo. It can be a bit tricky getting into or out of the parking spot because of the traffic and it's also located right on a bend in the road. We found it best to back our car into the spot. The condo is well stocked and a great amenity is a washer and dryer right in the unit. Beaches are close by and we were able to go to quite a few beaches within a few miles. We found Joe & Naomi great to deal with and we would definitely visit again. The pictures are exactly how it is!!


Cindy V.
February 2015
Our stay was excellent !! Being right NEXT to the ocean is the best. Breakfast on the lanai is so peaceful and relaxing. Quiet also. The 2nd floor is the top floor so no one above you, and on the end of the building. Nice beaches close by. Would stay here again.


Glen and Laurie M.
December 2014
Loved the condo. Very clean and well stocked. Kitchen was great to cook in and the air flow was great so no need for air condtioning. The Lanai was a good size, but be aware that you are so close to the ocean that even though you are on the second floor the waves still hit the balcony, especially at night. The rocks below did allow us to see turtles from time to time, which was a special treat. Our only complaint was the parking, it was very difficult to pull out of the parking spot due to the cement walls being so close together and the blind spot on the road both ways. The owners were very nice to deal with and the bed was very compfy!


Laura M.
August 2014
We had such an amazing stay in this condo and it was perfect for our honeymoon. The kitchen was well stocked and the lanai was our absolute favorite spot. Seeing the sea turtles was a highlight for us. We loved how close the beaches were and it was very close to several restaurants and bars. We will miss this spot very much but can't wait to visit again!

Greetings Naomi and Joe, We had a fabulous stay in your condo while visiting West Maui and we would be delighted to return again soon. The condo is very well equipped and modern so that nothing is left to be desired. Too, it is so well placed, just feet from the Pacific Ocean and super water activities, yet is very accessible to Lahaina's attractions and amenities as well as those of the other coastal areas. It was just perfect! The highlights of our stay, however, will always be those beautifully quiet, tranquil early morning coffees on the lanai, listening to the gentle lapping of the waves while taking in the gorgeous sunrise reflections off Molokai. So different from the prairie lands of Alberta and the hustle bustle of our city streets. Thank you for making us feel so welcome through your friendly emails and for sharing your lovely bit of heaven with us. We look forward to a return stay in Condo 213.

Don't let the exterior of this condo complex fool you. While the outside is a bit dated, the inside has been recently renovated and is gorgeous. The photos for the interior are spot on. The kitchen and bathroom are both spacious. The sitting area has new modern furniture and the bed is very comfortable. The in unit laundry, wi-fi and cable TV are also a bonus. The best part, however, is the view from the lanai. This unit probably has the best view in the entire complex. You are literally about 10 feet from the ocean. The 2nd story location gives you a great view over the wall. You can turtle watch in the afternoons and be lulled to sleep by the waves at night. If we ever get back here during whale season this is where we would stay! The downsides (and there are always downsides) to this unit are very minor. This unit is on the 2nd floor and I am not sure there is elevator access. Also, there is not a lot of storage for unpacking and storing luggage. However, we were able to make due by putting suitcases in corners and in one of the chairs. I would definitely stay here again! Great quality for your money.

It was our honeymoon. I wanted 5 star resort but that is expensive in Maui. My bride found this place. This has all the 5 star resorts beat hands down! It is private. Parking is simple and right next to your door. Sunsets are amazing. Waves crash at night while you sleep. Made breakfast and ate on the balcony over looking the ocean. Huge turtles are right outside your view. You can go right down and touch them but dont unless you want to go to prison.. seriously. It is located close to everything. We had the most amazing time in Maui and the relaxation and beauty this condo brought us had a lot to do with it. Skip the over priced resorts and get this condo. If you want to visit a resort they are only a short drive away. This place even has AC. You can walk to a lot of cool eats too! Want a great burger... 5 min walk to Shark Pit. Pizza your thing... 5 min walk to Dollies. Maui Brew co is close too. Not a bad thing to say about this place.


Wayne S.

This is a very cozy spot right on the water. From the lanai, Sunsets every night, watching turtles every afternoon and breakfast every morning. Beaches are within walking distance, world class snorkeling beaches a short drive away. This location is best with shops/restrarants within walking distance.

You guys have done an amazing job remodeling this fantastic place! We've stayed here before (knew the previous owners) and loved it then because of the unbelievable location. But when we saw what you've done with the place ... WOW! Kudos! It's absolutely gorgeous and I truly don't know if you could have done any better! :) All of the small details are fabulous as well. Nice to have it so fully stocked with high-end furnishings, linens, dishes, etc. We were very impressed. You made a phenomenal place on Maui even better! Thanks so much! It's always been our very favorite spot on Maui and we owned a unit in that building for several years as well. Maui no ka oi. (Maui is the best.) Your unit: no ka oi. :)

What a pleasant surprise! We needed a place to stay for 3 nights while we were waiting to check into our primary Maui destination. This place was affordable and on the water and it exceeded our expectations! Joe and Naomi are outstanding owners and have really made this studio a nice home away from home. The furnishings and decor were very comfortable, the kitchen had all the right utensils, dishes, and appliances, and if you like the sound of the surf and a spectacular view of the ocean, this place has it. We had some minor problems with the sliding doors, we shared this with Joe and Naomi and they were already considering a fix. Also the sea wall was under construction while we were there so we didn't have use of the bar-b-q area. That didn't interfere with our second floor view and shouldn't be a problem for anyone else as they were nearing completion. Also expect a bit of road noise since the condo is close to the road. We saw turtles right below our lani every day and whales in the distance. There is a great beach about a half block north. The trail is a bit hard to see if your driving, but just walk up the road and you'll find it. The condo provided beach chairs, coolers, and beach towels. We snorkeled from Honolua Bay to Makena and found turtles everywhere. Our favorite places to dine included our condo, my wife is an awesome cook so with regular stops at the Farmer's Market for fresh fruits and veggies and Foodland Farms for Poke and beer we enjoyed the best of the island. We also enjoyed Pupus at the Seahouse, Pad Thai at Star Noodle, and to get the most for our money the pulled pork at Beach Bums at Maalaea. Also don't miss the Slack Key Show, lots of fun and gave us a real appreciation for Hawaiian guitar.

This condo is in a great central location of Maui. It's clean, it's modern, and the bed is very comfortable. Pride of ownership comes to mind when you look around at the updated interior. All the furniture pieces are nice, the kitchen is completely stocked with good quality dishes & cookware. The view cannot be beat. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive. In fact, I emailed them because I had a question and I received a response within minutes! I highly recommend this condo for anyone who wants a nice place to stay and a reasonable price.

We felt very lucky to have found this condo. Everything was comfortable, fully equipped AND we had a million dollar view! We would stay here again! Perfect for a cozy retreat. D & J

My girlfriend and I stayed at Pohailani in Lahaina for 7 nights and the property was just wonderful (exactly as described in the posting). The unit has all the necessities that you need and was very clean. It is in a great location in northwest Maui, close to beaches, rental shops, restaurants and grocery stores. We travelled the entire island and this is the area I would have chosen to stay. We cooked our breakfast in the unit almost every day and ate it out on the lanai, which is less than 10 feet from the ocean. We saw sea turtles most mornings, crabs, and people surfing and paddle boarding. Hearing the waves crash all night is very soothing. There are a few boogie boards to use in the unit (but some are broken). I would just rent snorkel gear and boogie boards for the week (very cheap from rental shops). Only small warning I have is watch your toes and shins on the bed frame, it sticks out past the mattress OUCH!!! Overall an amazing stay, I will book the same property for my next visit to Maui.

Mahalo for opening your beautiful home and allowing us to stay there! The pictures don't do it justice. We loved sitting on the lanai in the morning eating our breakfast watching the turtles swim just feet away from us, and watching the beautiful Maui sunsets at night. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could need, and it was the perfect home base location for our trip to Maui! We will definitely be staying here in this condo again on our next Maui Vacation!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Poihailani. The condo was outfitted with everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable. The setting was absolutely fantastic with gorgeous sunsets and turtles feasting right below us. We had never stayed in West Maui before and very much appreciated the close proximity to great beaches, snorkeling, hiking, and restaurants. We will be back!

Aloha Naomi & Joe, We had a fabulous time in Maui and your condo was the perfect home away from home. We couldn't have asked for more; superb oceanfront with beautiful sunsets, incredible lanai views, comfy chic accommodations and the list goes on and on. The location was excellent making it easy to explore West, South and Central Maui. The daily sea turtle sightings from our lanai was a real treat and the easy access to so many wonderful beaches in the area made our honeymoon unforgettable. We were quite content to prepare many of our meals at home in the lovely equipped kitchen and we also appreciated the opportunity to throw in a load of laundry when needed; definitely an added bonus. Thank you for sharing your gem in Maui!! Mahalo, Nadia & Gaetano
