There are only 2 downfalls to staying here. One, the very tiny bugs, my husband did not particularly enjoy these guys bit we were warned.
There is a pool area if you want to escape the sun on the beach, however I call this area The Voetex. It is very windy and not enjoyable for me.
There was a little matter i wanted to discuss and I tried calling the property manager but wasn't able to dial out for some reseon. Definitely user error but the owner was communicative via email. Good location! A perfect home away from home.
We enjoyed our visit and this is the perfect place to see whales, turtles and beautiful sunsets. Listening to the ocean every night makes you sleep like a baby.
The condo was clean. They do need to make sure there are enough blankets, we only had one for the bed and we were not able to contact anyone to bring another for the fouton.
Great experience and great location. Would definitely return.
Very nice condo. Second time staying in this condo. Would highly recommend.
We saw a lot of whales out in the distance from the lanai & Some turtles close to shore.
The owners were easy to communicate with and resourcesful. The condo was absolutely perfect and the location was beautiful. Stunning sunsets every night and short drive from anywhere you want to go on this side of the island. The sound of the waves crashing was so peaceful I had to find a you tube channel to mimic them when I got home. But you can't beat the real thing. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
The perfect home away from home! The pictures on this listing do not do the property justice. It was amazing. The bed was so comfortable, loved the updated bathroom, and the view was like no other. The grounds of the resort were beautiful. I was worried about not having AC but it wasn’t bad at all, we actually got a little cool in the evenings. Would definitely book again!
We had great time staying here. Location was perfect, 5-10 mins away from most popular location in Maui. I would highly recommend staying here.
We stayed 7 nights at this property. We loved every second of being here. The views from the balcony were incredible. We chose to eat many meals out here, as the full kitchen provided a great space to cook up fresh food from the local farmers markets. The bed was surprisingly comfortable & the sounds of the ocean along with the fresh breeze created a luxury sleeping environment. The bathroom was very nice, separate toilet/tub from sink was nice for 2 people getting ready. Many provided amenities (coffee pot, iron, toaster, etc.), all in great condition. Only thing to note is that there is no a/c. It did get slightly warm in the evenings when the sun was hitting the balcony. We found it to be helpful keeping the sliding door open all day, having the ceiling fans on & keeping the blinds on either side of the door closed at all time. The condo is a very short drive to Lahaina where there are many shops/ restaurants. There is not a ton within a short walking distance but we did enjoy the beach bar at the condos next door as well as the coffee shop in the strip mall across the street. Overall a great stay, would recommend for couples (2 people max. fit in this space)!
I don’t receive the code to entry in the room
Need to call the home owners to come for the code
I'm so grateful to have had a wonderful week in Jim's condo. The location is great near lots of places to walk to to eat and within 15 minutes of some beautiful beaches. The bed was comfortable and the provisions in the kitchen were excellent. Jim was very responsive and I couldn't have enjoyed myself more thank you so much!
Since we’ve been to Maui several times we’ve done the tourist things so we spend most of the time enjoying the view/water. The Murphy bed was very easy to use and we used the kitchen many times.

Our first time visiting Maui and first time using VRBO. All I can say is WOW!! Everything was easy from registration to excellent communication w/ Jim & Sue. Just amazing!!
Condo #307 was WOW! Super clean (I didn't have any communication w/ Shaka Cleaning but they did an EXCELLENT JOB..coming from a germaphobe) everything was clean, tidy, and in their proper place. The views from the room was SUPERB and just MAGNIFICENT!! You usually pay an arm and a leg for such AMAZING views. The best part was hearing the waves at night and waking up with the ocean view. It was WONDERFUL!! Thank you Jim, Sue, and Shaka Cleaning for a wonderful stay!! You made our stay simply MARVELOUS!
Absolutely beautiful views with daily turtle sightings! Condo is so easy to get to and spotlessly clean. Anything you needed was already there! Would definitely stay there again.
Great views and perfect location.
This unit made our first trip to Maui perfect. There is nothing comparable to sleeping to the ocean front sounds of waves and waking at sunrise to look out at the beautiful, breathtaking ocean and view of Molokai. Mahalo! Rick and Jenny
The apartment was clean, the views amazing, and the location great. Loved how easy everything was and how much information was given to us. So happy we decided to stay here!
This was a good unit with a great view! We heard the waves at night, saw rainbows from the patio in the morning, and even cooked a few meals resulting in a nice relaxing week getaway. The building felt more like a hotel stay than a typical condo with the lobby layout. Jim and Sue were great hosts and sent over lots of helpful hints. Thank you for letting us stay!
We had a nice stay.
It’s with a heavy heart I’m writing this review. The owner Jim informed me his wife Sue had recently pass away. Prayers for her, Jim and their family.
I don’t like to write negative reviews but my fellow travelers deserve honest and accurate information on where to stay and the conditions they are getting.
This condo in its present condition is unlivable.
My teenage son and I spent 9 nights at Jim's Condo for the Christmas holiday. We were unable to sleep on the mattress or the sofa. Both are extremely old and dilapidated.
After not being able to sleep, I inspected the mattress. It's completely collapsed and has a piece of foam on top of it to keep you from feeling the springs. I sent photos and an email to the owner Jim who lives in Minnesota. He sent his friend Tom of 20 years over (he lives in the same condo complex) to assess the mattress. Tom took pictures, measurements and agreed the mattress was collapsed and needed to be replaced. I never heard anything else from Tom or Jim. We spent 9 nights at this condo.
Knowing his recent loss, I sent another email to Jim the day before we left to update him on other items that needed to be addressed. The toilet was running all the time and shower faucet handle was loose. Jim said he and Tom were going to do research for the mattress replacement.
* Sleeping on the floor was uncomfortable and the old carpet has waves in it like the ocean.
* The sofa sleeper has to be over 30+ years old and in worse condition than the mattress.
You can feel the sofa sleeper springs through the dilapidated cushions. Behind the sofa is a piece of plywood that fits under the sofa cushions so you don't feel the springs.
This condo does overlook the ocean- Please note there is no beach at the waters edge on this property. They have huge sandbags piled up at least 8 to10 feet high. The crashing of waves at night up against these sand bags sounds like thunder in a bad storm. Just don’t expect the sounds of waves to lull you to sleep.
*I have pictures but this review did not allow me to attach them.
*** We paid Premium Christmas pricing and was not even able to sleep in the bed or use the sofa due to owner neglect. Owner offered no assistance.
We enjoyed staying at Jim and Sue’s place. The views are amazing and the location is a short drive to beautiful beaches and restaurants. The condo has a homey feel and we were sad to have to leave! Definitely recommend and will check to see if the condo is available on our next Maui trip.
We loved the ocean front view and the sound of waves. The condo is neat and lovely as well. We enjoyed our stay and want to come back again.
Great location, beautiful ocean front view. Would definitely love to return.
We had an incredible time! Beautiful condo, perfect location, and the most amazing view of the ocean. Highly recommend :)
We had great communication with the Owners of the property. They allowed a late checkout, which was amazing!! The condo has everything that you need, several times we cooked, stayed in, and even used some of their beach essentials provided. It is on the beach, this particular beach isn’t one of the popular ones - we typically drove 10 minutes for another beach. It’s on the 3rd floor therefore the waves are loud. It’s nice! This is on the listing but I want to reiterate - THERE IS NO AC. We traveled the 8th-13th of September and with no AC at night it was probably in between 75-78 degrees. You’ll notice everyone leaves the front door open (with the screen door closed) and the sliding patio door open as well, this helps with airflow. If I used this place again I’d like ensure it was a cooler month. The no AC was certainly an adjustment for us. The community was friendly, quiet, and the check in desk staff were always friendly. The location it perfect-nothing was too far.
My partner and I stayed for 5 days and had a wonderful getaway! Going to sleep to the sound of the ocean is priceless ❤️
We stayed here for our 10 year anniversary. We appreciated the pace of Maui compared to Oahu. It was a nice location not too far from downtown Lahaina and Kaanapali. We enjoyed snorkeling, golfing and the road to Hana. The condo was clean and cozy. It was nice to have beach chairs and umbrella, boogie board and cooler. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again in the future.
