Our description is long. A Maui vacation is a big expense. I've added lots of photos to help with your decision. To enlarge, click them. I describe the benefits of our condo that sleeps up to 6 guests + a baby in the crib.

My Condo is 15 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes to Kihei, 20 minutes to Wailea and only 1/4 mile to the Maalaea Harbor for snorkeling, whale watching (usually early Dec - Apr 15th), or dinner cruises. At the harbor are restaurants, shops, the Pacific Whale Foundation and Maui's #1 attraction, the Maui Ocean Center.

The photo of our complex with the wide beach, was taken some years ago. Kanai A Nalu is rated #1 in Maalaea. On over two acres of ocean/beach-front tropical grounds, all on a quiet cul-de-sac with stainless steel BBQ's, a solar heated pool, a shower and a pool-side eating area.

During whale watching season you can see them out in Maalaea Bay from the lanai. It's an unforgettable experience. For guests who dislike swimming in the ocean, we have a heated pool. In winter, Maui gets Kona storms, with large waves. Our beach in front becomes rocky. Normally by spring the sand returns. As of June of 2023, our beach out front was still rocky with higher than normal surf, from the rise in sea level.

You can still enjoy the top rated "Sugar Beach". It is sandy (all year around). It starts right next door, just past our seawall. To get to this lovely beach, our guests can enter through the complex next door, past their pool or, if the sand is high, between our seawalls. See photos with the blue arrows.

Guests can also take a five-minute walk via the sidewalk behind our complex, or a 10 second drive. It ends at Haycraft Park. There are parking spots, picnic tables, toilets and showers. It opens directly onto Sugar Beach. The beach runs parallel to a protected wildlife refuge. No development is allowed, along this 4 mile long beach. The area is a habitat for Green Sea Turtles. Enjoy snorkeling there, and see the turtles (it's illegal to touch or harass them). On a morning walk you may only see a few locals. Be aware that the winds pick up in the afternoon.

Most people picture in their minds their “Dream” vacation, directly on the beach, with magnificent sunrises and romantic sunsets. My 1,050 sq. ft. condo, #117, at Kanai A Nalu could fulfill that dream. Owned since 2005, it's very personal to me. I've tried to make it the perfect Maui retreat for my guests and my family (3 grown children, plus 7 grandchildren).

When you walk in and see the view of the ocean from the living room, you will be delighted. When you go outside, the spectacular views will take your breath away. Every morning, relax on the lanai watching the sun come up over Haleakala and turtles popping up in the waves, right in front.

It has ONE of ONLY three, rare, double lanais at the complex. My unit has the only double, CORNER lanai. As such, the lanai offers amazing 180 DEGREE VIEWS of Maui's entire south coast and is only 15 steps from the shore. There are 2 tables (1 Lg./1 Sm.), 8 chairs and seating for 6. With less guests, they can spread out. OTHER LANAI'S ONLY SEAT FOUR AND ARE ENCLOSED BY SIDE WALLS. See them in the photos. A prior owner in a wheelchair was allowed to make this oversized, corner lanai. Level with the lawn, he could roll out overlooking the shore. The condo has wide doorways and is wheelchair accessible, but it is not ADA compliant.

Because we're on a corner, there's no neighbors on one side. With more windows, it's brighter inside. There are views of the shore from the main bedroom's front and side windows. Our corner condo is not like an interior unit that is sandwiched between two walls. They only have one window in their main bedroom. Their 2nd bedroom's window opens to the back, facing a walkway, or parking lot. Strangers can look in. The window in our 2nd bedroom faces the pool.

OUR CONDO HAS REMOTE CONTROLLED, CENTRAL AIR in the living room/dining area, main bedroom and 2nd bedroom. Each unit can be adjusted separately. With built in dehumidifiers, they remove moisture from the air. In summer Maui gets into the 90's, with the humidity at 80%. CENTRAL A/C is a MUST, a built-in dehumidifier is even better. We also have 6 cooling, ceiling fans. Some units with central air, only install it in the living room and main bedroom, ignoring the back bedroom.

Many condos only have a small air conditioning unit in an opening off the lanai, in the living room. On a 2 or 4-hour timer, every couple of hours you have to turn it back on. Their main bedroom is warm, their back bedroom is hot. A few condos have no air conditioning and offer highly discounted rates.

We have (driftwood look) porcelain tile floors in the living room, dining room and main bedroom. I'm constantly adding items to enhance my guest's enjoyment. I was at the condo in 2023 doing more upgrades. I added three, Roku Smart TV’s (for Netflix, Prime Video and more). We also have three DVD/Blu-ray players. Bring your children's favorite movies, or I have provided many to choose from. I removed older furniture in the living room for lovely, new pieces.

There is fast, secure Wi-Fi and a printer. We have games, books, movies (all ages), ice chests, snorkel gear, fishing gear, beach towels and sand chairs. Breakable Styrofoam boogie boards are banned as they damage the reefs. We have two "legal" body boards. Others can be rented at the harbor, at Boss Frogs.

FOR CHILDREN WE HAVE: A stroller, high chair, a Pac n Play, 3/4 size crib (with mattress & sheets), a booster seat, eating utensils/dishes for toddlers, a baby gate, sand toys, coloring books/crayons & puzzles. I have seven grandchildren, so kids are welcome.

There are two coffee makers, 1 for K-cups, and 1 for grounds, a deluxe 4-slice toast/bagel toaster, a 72 oz. Ninja blender (for smoothies) and new silverware. There's a digital washer and dryer, dishwasher, microwave, glass top stove, side-by-side fridge with ice maker, filtered water, a vacuum, iron & ironing board. We have a toaster oven, dishes, pots, pans, wine glasses and more. Hopefully I've provided, whatever you might need for your vacation.

Our condo has a "relaxed" island feel with bamboo and rattan furnishings. Many families rent our condo. Most of our guests like it, but those that expect it to look like a hi-end hotel room, could be disappointed. If you prefer a modern look, there are completely remodeled units that charge higher rates. Be aware that 25% of the condos at Kanai A Nalu have a "No Refund" policy, even if you cancel months in advance.

In the main bedroom is a "Sleep Number's" King. Each side can be adjusted to your desired firmness or softness. We added a new pump and digital remotes (making it more responsive). Some condo's main bedrooms are open to the living room with thin folding or sliding walls, offering no insulation from the noise of others. Our main bedroom‘s solid walls and locking door offers privacy and a quiet retreat.

The 2nd Bedroom has twins that can be converted to a king. Both bedrooms have central air, ceiling fans, Smart TV’s, DVD/Blu-ray players, views of the ocean, grounds and the pool. In the living room is a Queen Sleeper sofa with a comfortable memory foam mattress. The condo sleeps six guests plus a baby in our 3/4 size crib.

The main bath has an oversized, (wheelchair accessible) walk-in/roll-in shower, with both a hand held and a wall mounted shower head. There are new towels (2023) and rugs. The 2nd bathroom has a full-size tub with a hand-held shower head above, ceiling fans, makeup mirrors and wall mounted hair dryers.

Our condo is only steps from a free parking spot and the pool. Being a ground floor unit, you don't have to carry luggage upstairs or to the back of the complex for the elevators. The other 7 complexes down the street, towards the harbor, are on a reef. Two are next to the busy Harbor, with the sound of boat engines and exhaust fumes. Many have distant parking lots where you have to carry your bags a long ways. Many do not have air, and half have coin $$ operated laundry rooms. That can be a pain if you have to do laundry often. Our unit has a state-of-the-art FULL-SIZED digital washing machine (takes pods, liquid or powder) and FULL-SIZED digital dryer. We provide dish & laundry soaps, and extra paper towels & T.P.

I have tried to keep our rates reasonable, even with our ocean front condo having amenities other units don't, such as: Seating for six on a rare double-sized, corner lanai, being only 15 steps from the shore and 180 degree views. We also have cooling central air throughout, 3 Roku Smart TV's, 3 DVD/Blu-ray players, an adjustable Sleep Number's King, children and toddler items, and updated appliances.




Kanai A Nalu Condo Reviews

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at this beautiful and perfectly furnished oceanfront condo. The owner (Diane) provided us with everything we needed and more to celebrate our wedding anniversaries (my wife and I - 36 years) and my sister and her husband's 38 year anniversary (including some arrival gifts - fresh whole pineapple and box of delicious Hawaiian chocolates). The location of the condo was perfect for the things we wanted to do. (a few minutes from the Maui Aquarium and Maui snorkeling tour boat, restaurants, shops and more). Also, it was only 16 mins away from the airport. We really appreciated Diane's great communication and detailed information (of Maui attractions, restaurants, grocery stores, shops, etc).. The condo is only 10 steps away from the ocean and the ocean view from her condo was amazing. We had a wonderful 5 star experience at Diane's condo. Thank you very much Diane!

Owner is wonderful and provides great communication before and during stay. Condo had everything we needed and more! Beach access is a short walk and you can enjoy lounging on the patio at surf side. Great location for all things on island.

This is such an amazing condo! Everything we needed was provided. The ocean is just steps away and literally in your backyard. Owner was fast to respond to inquiries. We will definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at your condo, we had an amazing experience!

This beautiful condo is on the ground floor, only feet from the surf and was equipped with every kitchen, entertainment and recreational device one could want.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed Dianes condo. The location was perfect, both quiet and convenient. The views from the lanai are epic. The 2 bedroom 2 bath groundfloor unit is beautiful, clean and very comfortable. The welcome gifts are a super sweet touch too. Diane is a wonderful hostess and we communicated frequently. We could not have asked for a better vacation.

We had originally cancelled our plans to Maui as we were supposed to be staying in Lahaina. Then we considered going to another island but after hours of research and thought we thought that supporting Maui and staying on another part of the island felt like the right thing to do. I was thankful to come across Diane’s listing and booking a pretty last minute stay. We had an amazing time staying here and loved the central location. It seemed to be easy to get anywhere. Everything was no more than 15-30 min away. You cannot beat the view! The sound and sights of the ocean soothes my soul! I didn’t need to sleep with any noise machine or loud fan because the sound of the ocean was enough to lull me to sleep. Loved all the amenities like the beach chairs, boogie boards and sand toys for our little guy. Loved the smart TVs I’m every room! Sugar Beach next door was amazing! Thank you Diane :)

We had new towels with lots of beach towels and extra sheets if we needed them. Kitchen was well stocked. All appliances were new and worked beautifully. a few cleaning issues like food and dirt under the sofa cushions. the beach in the pictures wasn't there but I am wondering if that is a seasonal thing. I loved the location. Close to the Maui Ocean Center which is a must see. I would rent this condo again.

You can tell Diane takes a lot of pride in her property. Her communication was great and everything was easy to understand. You can’t beat this location and it is hands down the best stocked rental we have ever been to. There was beach and swimming equipment for our days on the beach, a cooler for our trek to the mountains. Can’t be beat. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again if we ever found ourselves back on Maui.

We also enjoyed the General Store (<1 mi.) for meals and drinks. Aquarium right next door was excellent as well.

Our Family just stayed for a week and really enjoyed this Condo. Breakfasts and Dinners out on the patio watching the waves and seeing Sea Turtles a few times. We had a couple small issues arise while we were there, but Diane took care of us fast and got them resolved as quickly as possible. The kitchen had everything we needed. The washer and dryer were a blessing to be able to take care of towels and swimsuits. This was the perfect place to be for our first trip to Maui. It was central and allowed us to explore all over the island and have a place to get back to easily. It was also very close to the airport. Highly recommend this place if you want to see everything Maui has to offer.

If you are planning a vacation to Maui with multiple activities all over the island, this is the place for you! It was perfect for us because we had activities planned all over the island. A great view with a very laid back environment! The owner is very organized and covers everything to make your stay great!

beautiful views, easy access to beach and great central location - able to easily explore and get to ahihi for snorkeling /Kam beaches going south and up to olowalu beach and black rock within 15-20 min each direction. Being near maalea harbor ( we dive ) was also a plus. very chill vacation away from the hustle and bustle of big resorts which is what we were looking for

for a family of 6 it was a wonderful stay in a quite neighborhood in the center of Maui. beach front, watched whales from deck! she has everything you would need for the beach. my family loved it and enjoyed it very much. the pool is great too. highly recommend and would stay here again!

We had a fantastic stay at this Condo. Everything was exactly as we needed. Lots of room in the condo, and everything was clean and orderly! The owner, Diane, was so helpful and attentive to everything. What nicer way to spend a vacation than starting every morning on the lovely Lanai looking over the ocean, it just doesn't get any better than this. The kids loved the swimming pool and LOVED going to the beach - playing in the sand and the waves. I honestly don't think we could have found a nicer place to spend our vacation. My only regret was that we didn't stay longer.

Very much enjoyed our stay. Condo had everything you could need. Location was phenomenal near center of island with ocean just outside. Going to sleep with sound of the ocean was great. Highly recommend. Mahalo!

Our trip to Maui was a delight and Diane's property was a big part of our enjoyment. The condo location is next to Sugar Beach which was perfect for fun at the beach, walks on the beach and watching whales in the bay. The condo had a well stocked kitchen and comes with lots of beach gear and sand toys. My grandchildren loved the variety of kids games and toys. Diane was a very good communicator and host. We would definitely come back here again.

This main floor unit with its extra large patio area offers excellent whale viewing opportunities, as well as ease of access to the pool, barbeque, and sun bathing/shaded reading areas. If you enjoy meeting new people, this location cannot be beat as we were often greeted by other renters who were also enjoying this condo complex and eager to share their adventures and recommended island highlights.

We had a lovely stay at Diane's condo. She has it down to a science as far as clear organization and providing all the little items needed in a home. She was a friendly, helpful communicator, and I appreciated the guide she sent beforehand with info about the condo, the area, transportation, and local restaurants. We were walking distance to the Ocean Center which had a memorable 3D whale footage experience. We also walked to the harbor to book a snorkeling trip to Molokini which I highly recommend! The central location made it easy to take car trips to Haleakala, Lahaina, and Hana. The heated pool, which is just steps from the condo, was clean and open until 9 PM, so we spent a lot of time enjoying the stars in the pool. We came right after New Years and found great weather and less crowds at attractions. Diane's condo provided a great home base with a beautiful view of the ocean.

Steps from the beaches, whales and turtles everyday, and a clean well stocked home to come back to. Having all of the kids stuff was a huge bonus! We will be coming back!

Our family had a great time here. This was our second stay at this particular complex. The condo is centrally located on the island, so it’s just a short trip to anywhere you might want to go. The patio is steps from the water which has great views of the sunset and sunrise. Also, the shore fishing is great, my son and a caught a variety of species off the rocks near the patio. We will definitely try to rent this place for our next trip to Maui.

Tricia T.

The condo was as expected and wonderful. Very clean and centrally located for excursions all around Maui. We watched whales in the water in the morning from the back porch and swam with turtles at the adjacent beach! There was snorkeling equipment for adults and even our 7yo. Boogie boards and pool noodles too. All the basic spices and a fully equipped kitchen, including coffee machine, wok, rice cooker and ninja blender, even a coffee bean grinder for local Maui coffee beans. The grills in the courtyard were really nice too. We bought groceries at Walmart and Safeway, and got fresh local fruit, sauces, and coffee beans from the farmers market. We went end of November to beginning of December, and as described, the sand was out/washed away in front of the condo complex. This was explained in the VRBO description, so we were prepared and took the steps down the sea wall adjacent to the next property. This method was easy for us and our 7yo to navigate, but I wouldn’t suggest this way for people with unstable joints or unsteady feet. Rest assured there are other ways to get to that beach along a path at the front of the condo that would just take a little bit longer, and we did see people of all ages from moms with babies in their arms to 80 year olds taking the sea wall path. The condo complex and Maalaea were very quiet, which was our favorite part—it was a great place to relax, take long walks on the beach, drink a cup of coffee or glass of wine watching the waves. From Maalaea you can get anywhere on the island easily. Definitely recommend Kumu farm for fruit and treats, and the restaurant offers amazing food and gorgeous tropical Mountain view. Paia and Lahaina for gifts and souvenirs (don’t buy at whalers beach—same stuff but expensive!). The adjacent beach or Kapalua or baby beach in Lahaina for great family swimming and snorkeling, very calm for kiddos. Escape the heat and some really pretty hikes on West Maui. Beautiful sunsets and really cool tide pools in Wailea and Makena. We would definitely come back. The condo was wonderful and the trip was a dream come true. Mahalo, Diane!!

We were a group of 6. Husband, wife, 2 daughters 16 & 20 and their 2 friends. This space fit us perfect. We love sugar beach so much so it was nice to be-able to easily walk right to it. We are not morning people but hearing the waves out the bedroom window was an amazing motivator to get up early and sit out on the lanai. Watched several beautiful sunrises coming up over Haleakala. Did some snorkeling and saw some cool fish and while walking the beach one morning we saw some turtles trying to come to shore! The heated pool was a plus when we came back in the cooler evenings to swim. Diane was very easy to contact if we had any questions. Everything was just perfect! Thank you again for letting us stay in your condo!

Since the owner was terrific, we’re sorry to write this, but the condo needs a deep cleaning (though it was broom clean), fresh paint throughout, and lots of repairs and replacements (torn screen, taped window, missing and loose valences, frayed curtains) because the overall effect is shabbiness. And the beach access was not as pictured; it was precarious.

Shannon S.
October 2022
We could not be happier with our stay here. Diane was so helpful and provided all the info we needed. The view from the condo is amazing and the waves crashing up against the sea wall were gorgeous. Being able to walk out the sliding door onto the lanai and have a full view of the ocean and island was priceless. The beach, as stated in the listing, is a short walk past the next complex. High tide doesn’t leave much of a sandy beach but low tide reveals a bit more. It didn’t hinder us at all and we enjoyed walking along the beach in the mornings. It’s a short drive (15-25 min depending on traffic) into Kihei where there are lots of restaurants and shops and many beautiful snorkeling beaches. We really enjoyed Sugar Beach coffee, and the ABC stores had lots of souvenirs for home as well as basics. The condo itself was really comfortable with plenty of seating. I’d searched for a condo with enough places to sit for our group of four and this was perfect. We had plenty of space, all the things we needed (beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards etc). The kitchen is incredibly well stocked and we had all we needed. The beds were comfortable and the AC made it a cool retreat during the heat of the day. I would absolutely stay here again, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful spot to connect with family or friends that’s removed from the hustle and bustle of downtown Kihei. Also keep an eye out for sea turtles, they love to pop their heads up and check you out as you enjoy your morning coffee.

Condo was exactly as pictured and very clean. Diane has thought of everything you may need during your stay and you really only needs to bring your clothes and have a great time! Excellent communication from the time we reserved until the time we checked in, with upates on mask/vaccination requirements to recent storms. This condo is centrally located so it is EASY to get any place on the island with little drive time. It is also right ON the water! You probably would never find a closer unit to the ocean. The sound of the waves is constant here and was my absolute favorite. Only unexpected item was that people are constantly walking in front of the unit to get to the beach all day long. The amount of foot traffic didn't bother us as we also enjoy people watching, but make sure you close the curtains or you are decent at all times because you will look up and they are literally steps from the door. This may change when the seawall construction is completed, however for now you have access to miles and miles of beautiful, quiet, uninhabited beach right from your door. It doesn't get better than that! Overall, we were incredibly pleased with our choice and Diane was an excellent host. Already looking forward to returning. Thank you for sharing your lovely condo Diane! It was a family memory to last a lifetime!

The place was perfect for my family of 5! We were steps from the beach, literally!! The condo was clean and well appointed. I’ve use Vrbo for 15 years now, but Diane provided things that most owners make you get! It was wonderful, and we will definitely be back to her paradise!

We just stayed for three days. Right space for 5 people and a lot of useful things inside to go to the beach or for the everyday life, nothing missed. Quiet environment, not really a good beach outside but enough to splash. The owner is very responsive and answers any question almost immediately.

Unit was very central to activities on Maui. The walk-out lanai was great for watching others surfing and was adjacent to the steps going down to the beach. Unit was well stocked with a good variety of kitchen appliances, dishes and cookware. Air conditioning in each bedroom and living room worked great.

This property is so close to the beautiful blue ocean that the waves are a constant reminder to relax. A little tricky to get to the beach but once you figure it out, it’s act easy just be careful. Lovely property with shade right by the beach and a really nice pool. Good for travelers with kids. Also Maalaea Harber has good eats and many expeditions so close by. Great location. Washer-dryer came in handy and kitchen well-equipped. Love the new floor in LR, kitchen and master. We wondered why not also replace the old Looking carpet in the 2nd BR? We only used the AC units once or twice otherwise the breeze through the condo was enough and really nice. The only things I can say that could improve this condo is to renovate the bathrooms and do a more thorough cleaning Dryer lint trap was full and washer needs to have the clean cycle ran. We couldn’t get the sleep number bed to change at all but that could have been us.

Let me start the review by saying Diane is one of the best hosts guests can wish for: she is so meticulous, attentive and responsive the moment we contacted her for booking! She provided me with a complete booklet full of useful information which helped ensuring my Maui trip to be a wonderful one. Browsing through her property pictures and notes/markings also helped me to visualize surrounding views of the property, which presented a beautiful panoramic ocean scene with a promise of peacefulness. The property is in a prime central location: about 19 minutes south of the airport and offering shorter distance for driving east or west of Maui. Diane's condo rendered a homey vibe with cleaniness and comfort. Its wide lanai boasting a nice ocean view is a wonderful place for me to start my day with a cup of hot coffee in the early morning, and with a glass of fine wine in the late afternoon after a long day exploring Maui. I definitely come back some day to this place to see the whales from this lanai during winter months!

The condo is amazing with everything you could want being supplied. The additional area of concrete on the patio is wonderful and allowed for everyone (3 adults, 2 children) to sit on the patio and enjoy meals without feeling crowded. We were able to see a few whales in our stay while sitting on the patio and even saw one jump out of the water. The property is centrally located to many different attractions and allows short travel times to get to anywhere on the island. Thank you for having such a wonderful condo and having it available to rent! I will highly recommend this location and will look to stay here again in the future.

I did not realize this is not beachfront property in March. The access to the water was washed out so is now impossible for an older person. We had to drive a very short distance to use the beach. Approx 3-4condos down.

Perfect property for whale watching in February. We saw our first whale from the front room looking out the sliding glass door within 10 minutes of entering. The condo itself was so closet situated to the ocean we could listen to the waves as we fell asleep. Dianne was also very considerate in providing many of the little things that are easily overlooked. We enjoyed our stay at this condo greatly.

Brenda J.
February 2022
We had a wonderful two weeks in this spacious and well equipped condo. We enjoyed the location, just steps away from an expansive sandy beach with relatively few people on it. We were enthralled with the humpback whales, which we saw from our lanai just about every day. The breaching, fin slapping and tail smacking was very entertaining! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

I can’t find a better location than Diane’s place. We sleep soundly every night with real wave background sounds. The 2nd day around noon, a group of whales came near, and the same afternoon we spot a turtle swimming around very close too! Tell me about being lucky! Clean, convenient, the condo has everything you need. I can’t say enough about this magical place, all I can say is any length of vacation would still feel too short. Dream about coming back soon!

Beautiful view with short walk to the beach, beach has shade and is long enough for a nice walk. Location felt safe but there wasn’t anything close by for grocery shopping or essentials except 2 tiny stores. Good check in instructions, owner very responsive, well equipped, A/C in both bedrooms and LR, needs some updating and 2nd BR is small. We couldn’t get the sleep number bed to work. Sand chairs were very uncomfortable. Good location to get to most attractions.

December 2021
Perfect location if you want a central location, viewing of turtles and whales, and a quiet community. Right on the beach. In the winter it is just a short skip to the side property to enter to the beach. The ocean center is right there in the community harbor which is fabulous! Short drive to Kihei for shopping etc. Short drive back to the airport. Area was clean and well kept. Grounds were nice. There are a lot of rules for the pool so read ahead of time! We had a large storm role through the entire HI islands, extremely abnormal for the Maalaea area. There was excellent communication with the owner to keep the condo in good shape! Would definitely stay here again if we are back in Maui!

Can’t beat the location of this condo. It’s the most beautiful place. Steps to the ocean and/or the pool! The owner, Diane was so easy to work with and great with communication. The condo has everything you can think of from utensils, extra sheets, games, colored pencils to boogie boards and beach chairs. We will be back for sure! Thank you for the wonderful vacation!

If you have young children try somewhere else. to many rules against things kids like to do. Other than that it's a great place to relax and enjoy the view and beach.

One of the greatest things I love to do while coming to Hawaii is to listen to the ocean waves crashing in. it is absolutely the most meditating, calming experience. This condo had the best location for doing just that. We selected this condo because it was centrally located away from all our activities. Diane was amazing to work with and I would whole heartedly recommend this condo.

We really enjoyed this home, Amazing location and located next to the harbor! It was so nice to sit outside and drink coffee while the sunrise rises over the island. Owner was very quick to response with questions or concerns, we had the best week.

Diane's condo is lovely and very comfortable. The proximity to the beach and the view are exceptional. Sea turtles are constantly in sight. The water is clear and refreshing. The aquarium that is within walking distance is awesome. It's small, but we stayed there for three hours. We couldn't have asked for a better location.
