Excellent experience, Everything we hoped for in a vacation rental and more. We will definitely stay here again.
We loved the location and the easy beach access. The sunsets weee spectacular and we loved the friendly turtle visitors that came to the beach there daily. Excellent host and property exactly as described.
This was the perfect vacation for our family! The condo was great- right on the beach and within close proximity to a food truck park, coffee shop, and other fun things!!
Our time at this oceanfront paradise was excellent. The condo is very clean and has everything you need for a short term or long term stay. The beach just outside of the condo is beautiful with plenty of sea life. In about waist deep water we saw tons of turtles, fish, and a huge lobster!
The place was in a great location. However, there was not much beach to walk down, very rocky with reef. The unit was not cleaned thoroughly...dirty bedding, counters had food on them, toilet had hair and debris on it, etc. It seemed as if the cleaners came in and tidied it up but didn't actually "clean". This was our first time on Maui and I was shocked to see as many homeless people as I did. They were tented up everywhere, even on the beach next to our unit. There was just a lot of trash in the area too. It was a bit surprising. The owners were pretty good at communicating; just feel they should have been more receptive about the cleanliness of the place. Our coffee pot wasn't working and I reached out to them and she said she would have someone bring one over, after she asked us to dig in her storage to find another one. There wasn't one. She then told us someone would be bringing one. Fast forward 5 days and we still didn't have one. I reached out to her and she asked us if we wanted to drive to Ace to pick up a coffee pot and she would reimburse us. I didn't care for this response as we were there for our anniversary and had our days planned out. It was a little frustrating. Eventually, the neighbor down below brought one up but it was the day before we left. I think he was supposed to have dropped one off two days earlier. We actually left 3 days early due to not liking it there. And no, we didn't ask for a refund or credit. I wouldn't do that.
Great location tucked away in a small beach town, yet close to the amentites offered at the big resorts.
Process was very easy and property was excellent, as advertised, well appointed and clean. Would recommend to anyone.
One of thee best places I have ever stayed! To be right on the water with kids made it a very easy, relaxing vacation. No loading cars and coolers and driving home with cranky kids! We had it all right at our feet! Amazing sand, water, loads of turtles and many performances put on by the whales! There are enough shops nearby to get everything you need and then just relax and take in the beauty of your surroundings! Friends that have been to Maui numerous times were very impressed by this gem of a place and will likely be joining me on my next visit. It truly did amaze me!
The stay was great, and is a great location
This is a delightful place to stay. The condo complex is small (12 units) with adequate off-street parking. There is a small but beautiful beach in front of the condo and a strip of grass behind the seawall. This is a second-floor unit and visibility to the ocean is uninterrupted, facilitating whale and turtle watching. Turtle occasionally hauled out onto the beach while we were there - a real treat! The unit itself is just right - it has all the desired amenities with the laundry being in a common area. Although not guaranteed, there was a variety of spices in the cupboard and abundant sunscreen products in the bathroom storage. It is well appointed but not overly 'formal' - it is easy to be comfortable here! With the loft, it is possible to easily sleep four. Nicole is a fantastic host and alerted us to a couple of occasions when routine maintenance issues were to be addressed by outside contractors. In addition she helped us out a couple of times with our inexperience with the electronic lock on the door. She responded within a very short time to any of our queries. We would have rebooked for next year, but the space was already committed. Thanks to Nicole for sharing her Slice of Paradise with us this year.
Great week long stay at the pikake. Have been here before and loved it just as much the second time. Thanks so much for a lovely week
The property was very good, exactly as advertised. We saw many turtles, whales, and dolphins from the lanai. Only thing, even with windows open, multiple fans blowing, the loft bedroom is hot!
Beautiful location with great privacy. The ocean is just a few steps away!
We had a wonderful time during our stay. Nicole was very responsive and the condo was perfect. The views of the sunsets, direct beach access, location and amenities provided were all great.
We loved every minute of our stay.
private and comfotable
We had a great experience working with our host from beginning to end. The property met all our expectations and the location couldn’t have been better. We enjoyed our first visit to Maui.
Aloha!!!! My husband and I stayed at My Slice of Paradise for 2 weeks. It was very clean, owners were available if needed and the view is breath taking. We enjoyed sitting out on the lanai watching the sea turtles, sail boats and breath taking!!! I would recommend this place and experience to anyone.

Had a wonderful stay. In a great part of town, fabulous views and access to the beach, overall amazing place to stay in maui
Condo was great, very clean spectacular views
We loved the fact that this was a small condo right on the ocean and not a large development. We also loved how the owners took great care to furnish the place with tasteful Hawaiian decor and warm wall colors. The place felt funky and fun! We met nice folks staying there and liked the west beach location. The owners provided a nice list of “must do” activities and dining suggestions. The sunsets were fabulous and yes, the turtles are right there frolicking in the water! We would most definitely stay here again.
Great spot to enjoy Maui. We really enjoyed the property and the beach. Lots of good spots nearby for food and drinks. Park 2 minutes away was amazing for our 1 year old. My only gripe was that the sun sail was broken for us so we didn’t have the option to retract it and enjoy views from the balcony. Property owner said that was being fixed though. Note that it definitely gets warm so if you or your kids need to sleep in AC or somewhere cooler this is not the place for you!
We chose this property to be close to the ocean, BEST decision ever! Our kids stayed in the resort ***** and they said next time, they're going to book this place, by far better than staying in a resort! 10 Stars to the HOSTEST with the MOSTEST! Definitely stay here if you want to have beach view every morning with coffee, BBQ on the beach, watch turtles (we missed whale season, I've been told you can watch from your balcony) and walking distance to plenty of food and shopping :)
Absolutely loved the location of this unit. Being right on the ocean with your own private yard that steps down onto a nice size beach with a resident turtle and listening to the waves at night…no words can do this justice.
The loft bedroom is just adorable. The kitchen is nicely setup and nothing needed was missing.
Easy to book and communication with owner exceeded expectations.
Definitely recommend and hope to return.
We had the best week here! Everything was perfect and sleeping to the ocean breezes and sound every night was so nice!
We enjoyed our stay. The condo was well equipped with all the necessities for a beach vacation. The view is stunning and we spent every morning and evening on the balcony watching the whales and turtles in the distance. One to keep in mind is the upstairs loft gets very warm, might not be most comfortable sleeping arrangement in the summer. The downstairs bedroom stays nice and cool !

Great quiet place with wonderful views and beachfront access.
This VRBO started off our family vacation perfectly. The lanai was literally our favorite place to be for our entire trip to Maui and The Big Island. We wouldn’t change a thing about the location or condo because it was walking distance to anything we needed(check out the Maui fish market and a local market with legendary açaí bowls)and the beach was gorgeous, the perfect combo of snorkeling and kid friendly boogie boarding. I would highly recommend staying at this condo and if we come back to hawaii will try to stay here!
We have stayed at the Pikake three times, this was by far the most enjoyable. Would definitely return.
This listing was exactly as advertised and the communication from the owner was great. Overall this was a great vacation and the location cannot be beat. I’d definitely stay here again and would like to do so but for a longer period but it was already booked for the time period my family and I would like
We had a wonderful time at Pikake and Nicole was an amazing host. The views from the room are breathtaking. Love Pikake - will be back soon!!
We had a short but wonderful stay. Location can’t be beat, right on the water with lovely views. The kitchen has everything you need and more. Easy check-in. Our only issue is that we wish we could have stayed longer!
Great property, very quiet, yet close enough to everything, and easy parking. The Oceanfront View from the Lanai is as Maui as it gets!
The Pikake is a great complex. Small and intimate, but close to so much in west Maui. We loved the beach and saw one or two turtles everyday. The unit was clean and felt very open. We loved our stay!
Had a nice stay. Location was very close to so many things. Property does state there is no AC, please note if you don’t do well with heat because it does get very warm in the afternoon.
This place is good for the value. Nicole responds very quickly to any questions.
I can’t say enough great things about my stay at the condo. Waking up to the sounds of waves crashing and the most beautiful view was an incredible experience. The location is so convenient to everything you need like coffee shops, grocery and great beaches. I can’t wait to come again. I know where I’ll be staying! Also the hosts were super helpful and kind. I felt like I was staying at a friends home.
Beautiful home with beach facing spectacular views made us feel right in the middle of the ocean. Kids had a lot of fun playing in the private beach. Would love to visit again!
Had everything we needed and more! The view can't be beat. Watching the turtles in the water at sunset was fantastic. Will definitely be back!
We didn’t see much variety in the sea life, although it got better as you went farther out. Close to some pretty fantastic beaches. When we were in the condo, we spent a lot of time on the balcony which has a great view. All our interactions with the owner were top notch.
Don’t rent this unit if you go to Maui when it’s over 80+F! There’s NO A/C so it’s as hot as in an oven upstairs in the loft, even with all the fans on. Our teen kids could not sleep there so we had to bring the mattress downstairs but the landlord was not happy about it and told us to take it back upstairs right away. We had 2 night left so they had to sleep on the non-pullout sofa and on the floor. We are ourselves landlords of 5 rentals in Oregon and know that flexibility and a little compassion go a long way sometimes under certain circumstances. Needless to say we couldn’t wait to leave this property and will rent from someone else next time.
Just a wonder experience
The condo was perfect. Clean, roomy, and trade winds flowing through kept it comfortable. The location was ideal. Out of the bustle of Kaanapali but close for restaurants. Beach in front of the unit had decent snorkeling and lots of sea turtles. The whole rental process was easy and the info packet very helpful.
To say we loved every minute of being in this condo is understatement. We fell in love with this place. Everything was perfect, the condo itself, it was equipped with everything we needed starting from kitchen, bathroom and even beach and snorkeling equipment. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful condo! We made great memories swimming in the ocean with sea turtles!
Everything was perfect.
You just can't beat the view. Super easy access to the water. The size of the condo was suitable for 2 couples, there is only one bathroom but we made it work. Great kitchen space and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony drinking coffee watching the waves. Walking distance to food, groceries, coffee and stores.
Loved our time at this condo! Clean, great view, everything we needed.
The property was just as shown and explained. Actually beats the expectations.
The convenience of a private beach for a morning or evening swim fabulous.
Thank you for letting us enjoy your property.
