Exceptional Maui location right on the ocean and directly across from Molokai. Watch sea turtles year round and whales in the winter and early spring directly from the lanai. Direct oceanfront, you look right down at the water. Drink coffee on the lanai in the morning watching the sunrise and have a cocktail watching the sunset in the evening.
NO RESORT FEES!
Our condo has been recently remodeled and is stunning! One bedroom with a queen sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress in the living room. This is not a big resort. Our condo is located about half way between Lahaina and Kapalua. We are walking distance to restaurants and a small grocery store.
There is a sandy beach right down the steps at our building. You can snorkel out front too! We have beach chairs, boogie boards and snorkel gear available. We are within walking distance of Maui Dive Shop if you need anything.
We can not accommodate check in or check out on Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years days. Our cleaning company gives their staff these days off. You are more than welcome to book your stay over these dates but be aware that we may require you to check in or out the day before or after these dates if another guest is already arriving or departing on these holiday dates.
Our condo is a legal short term rental in the State of Hawaii and Maui. This is very important as there are many short term rentals that do not pay these taxes and could put your stay in jeopardy. We pay the Transient Accommodations Tax (TAT) of 10.25% and the General Excise Tax of 4.17% directly to the State of Hawaii. Hawaii Tax License/registration number: GET 177-444-2496-01
The reef in front of our building is one of the premier kitesurfing and windsurfing areas on Maui. When the wind is blowing, you are in for quite a show! One of the best surfing beaches on Maui is also within walking distance. It takes a North or Northwest swell for S-Turns to work it's magic for surfing! S-Turns has both left and right break and has a sandy bottom. A typical NW swell produces 4-6 foot waves that are perfect for longboarding. This is rare on Maui!
Maui Brewing Company is "stumbling distance" from our condo. They have great food and beer! There is a local coffee shop, sushi, pizza, fast food and asian food too.
There is a bus stop and Uber is on Maui too. Most of the things you're going to want to see are significant distances apart, a car is almost necessary unless you just plan on hanging out at the condo!

There is a cleaning fee for each stay which is included in your total from VRBO. We believe in paying a living wage to the maids that clean our condo. Hawaii is an expensive place to live and raise a family. We hope that you understand why our rates are what they are. We do not "mark up" the cleaning fee in any manner, it is the actual fee charged by our cleaning service.
Our on island management company requires that food items left in the condo be removed due to liability reasons, food allergies, health department codes, and religious or philosophical issues that may impact a guest. They will actually toss any perishable or questionable items left in the condo refrigerator or kitchen cupboards. Anything with sugar in it is also a problem due to the possibility that it will attract insects and pests. We make every attempt to provide the basics for your stay; salt, pepper, cooking oil, some spices, etc. Please remember, this a vacation home and we live 3,000 miles away - we can’t always ensure exactly what’s in the condo when you get there. Food safety is important to us and your health and we hope you understand.
We also provide, coffee for your first day, soap, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, and paper towels. We do not provide laundry detergent. Our kitchen does come fully stocked with all of the pots, pans and utensils that you will need to cook and we have a “Mr. Coffee” style coffee maker, blender, microwave, etc.
You should strongly consider shopping for your stay in Kahului (near the airport) if you’re planning on cooking or staying for an extended period. There is a Costco, Target, Wal-Mart, Whole Foods, Safeway and other “big box” stores in this area. We do have many local markets in the area but things are VERY expensive in Hawaii and Maui is the most expensive of all the Hawaiian islands. You’ll probably have “sticker shock” when you see milk for $7 a gallon for the first time.
BUG SPRAYING - Our Home Owners Association (HOA) for our condominium complex contracts for pest control spraying on a quarterly basis, typically the first Wednesday of February, May, August and November. Termites are the biggest problem in Hawaii and do the most amount of damage in a relatively short amount of time.
Maui is a tropical location and has a lot of unwelcome bugs; ants, termites, spiders, roaches, mosquitos, etc. The pest management company uses “safe” pesticides to treat for these bugs. The pesticides used are water based, “pet safe” and approved for application in food handling establishments. The pest management company usually posts a notice a about a week before they are on site, near the elevators and stairwells to let residents know the date and time that pesticides will be applied.
Keep all pets, service animals and children out the area during the treatment and until the product has dried – usually about 10-15 minutes. By renting our condo, you acknowledge and accept the application and use of pesticides and insecticides on the property and within our unit. As a condition of renting our unit you will provide access to our unit when the application is scheduled. Failure to allow access to the pest management company will result in a fee of $75.00 for the pest management company to return at a later date. You will be responsible for this fee if you do not allow the pest management company access to our condominium.
If you’re at all concerned about the treatment and spraying for pests/bugs, you should consider other accommodations. Bugs are everywhere in Hawaii and almost every hotel, condominium and Homeowners Association requires treatment to ensure the protection of their home and property.
