Support and Rebuild Maui! #MauiStrong

Right on the ocean! Super Clean! Great Location! High-speed WiFi, Free Parking, NO RESORT FEES!

Fortunately, our condo was not affected by the fires in Lahaina. There are still restaurants, grocery stores, and amenities within walking distance to our condo. Front Street Lahaina is approximately 8 miles from the condo and Ka'anapli Beach/Whalers Village is approximately 6 miles from the condo.

☆ Sorry, no check-in on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, or New Year's Day. You'll have to book and check on the day before or after the Holiday. Our Cleaning Company gives their employees the day off. Thank you for your understanding.

Our condo has been recently remodeled and is stunning! One bedroom with queen size bed and a queen sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress in the living room.

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!

NO SMOKING in condo or on Lanai. Smoking only in designated areas outside (in parking lot next to the street). Failure to follow this rule will result in forfeiture of your damage deposit.


Maintenance and Service Issues

Renters understand and agree that from time to time owner's maintenance staff and other contractors may enter the condo. When you leave, leave the keys in the unit. Please do not turn off or unplug the wireless Internet. If anything is broken, needs repair or you can’t find something you think should be there, please contact us.


Air Conditioning

There is no air conditioning in ANY of the 88 condos in our building. It is really not necessary in this area of the island.

We are fortunate to be in an area of the island that gets the tradewinds VERY reliably which keeps the condo at a nice temperature - usually 70-74 degrees. We bought this condo because of the area knowing that the west Maui trades blow through here. Electrical power is about 5x what it is on the mainland so choosing a location like this instead of Kihei or Lahaina where the temperatures average 10-15 degrees warmer makes a huge difference in affordability for both us and our guests.

However, there are times when the wind doesn't blow. It's rare but does happen. It's tropical here and a bit different than what you're probably used to. The temperature averages between 70-82 F during the day. It is pleasant but not stifling humid heat! We have personally experienced about 3-5 "uncomfortable" days in the five years we've been in the area so we don't want to tell you it can't happen.

We do have fans in the living room and the bedroom although we rarely use them.


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 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.
Cleaning Service

Your stay includes a cleaning service after you check out. If you desire cleaning during your stay you will need to contact Trinity Maid Service directly and make these arrangements on your own. You can contact Trinity at: 808-667-6938


Beach Gear

There are usually some beach chairs, body boards, snorkels, fins, sand toys, coolers and other stuff that you are welcome to use. This stuff is usually out on the lanai. There should be at least 4 beach towels in the condo too.

The stand up paddle boards at the north end of the condo are individually owned by others in the condo complex. Unfortunately they are not available for use.


Parking

We are allowed one parking space for our condo. If you have more than one vehicle, you will need to make your own arrangements to park the extra vehicle(s). Parking permits are required, please fill out and leave on dashboard. Fill out dates of arrival and departure on the temporary parking permit


Washer/Dryer

The Washing Machines and dryers are behind the office on the ground floor. Please clean up after yourself in laundry room after every use. Sand goes in trash, not down drain or in washers. Clean lint trap. You will need quarters to operate these appliances. The great news is that you can usually do an entire weeks worth of laundry all at once with all these washers and dryers at your disposal.

Great stay. Condo was perfect for us. It would be too small for two couples. We kept our suitcases in the living room. Otherwise perfect vacation for us.

Overall, the property was as advertised. The views were awesome and we enjoyed watching the whales from the lanai. The turtles also stopped by for their daily feedings by the sea wall. It would be nice if the owners added baking sheet pans to the unit. We were able to borrow some from friends that were staying in another unit.

We really enjoyed our stay and how helpful our hosts were. What a gem!

Great condo, we loved being on the corner with the ocean right out front. We saw sea turtles most mornings. The condo had everything we needed, perfect for a couple. We rented a motorcycle and rode up Haleakala, drove the rental car to Hana and my wife visited every store on the island (or it seemed so.)

This condo is in a superior location. The beach is literally your backyard. Each morning we sat out on the lanai and watched storms roll in across the island of Molokai which produced rainbows that were out of this world. This was almost everyday. There is a constant breeze from the trade winds that you should take full advantage of. Open all the windows (and front door- it is screened) and let the winds do the rest. No need for air conditioning. Full kitchen with everything you need. We decided to use the sofa sleeper in the living room so we could hear the ocean waves at night. Area has plenty of little shops and places to eat that are easily driveable or within walking distance. Neighborhood was very quiet and safe. Location is about 40 minutes from the airport. Very secluded area with beautiful beaches all around you. Room was a little dusty when we arrived but nothing that hampered our stay. We would come back again!

Very nice space and the ocean was very close and loud. Had almost everything we needed and the shared grills were excellent. No BBQ accessories but we figured it out. We used the pull out couch on our first night just to be near the Lanai and ocean

I could go on and on about this great property, but for the sake of your time as a reader, I will just hit the high points. 1. Full modern kitchen with everything you need 2. Amazing view from spacious second floor lanai 3. Because it is an end unit, two extra hall windows create extra air flow. This was the coolest non air conditioned condo I have ever stayed in during my many trips to the islands. 4. Very short walk to a sandy beach 5. Comfortable bed with a oscillating room fan 6. All the beach play gear you will need 7. Great communication from the owners Mahalo and aloha Maria and Rhett!

We loved being right on the ocean with beautiful west view of Molaka'i and Lanai. Waves crashing day and night provided endless sounds and sights which combined with the endless fresh air created perfect sleeping conditions. Almost every time I scanned the horizon I would see whales. We took full advantage of the two top quality four burner barbeques at the complex and the high capacity laundry facility was great. One day a turtle came to sleep on the beach beside the complex. We are already making plans to return.

Cute, clean 1 BR end unit in Kahana. Host gave use lots of useful info prior to arrival so we were well prepared. Close to great beaches and snorkeling. Onsite washer and dryers so leave some of that extra clothing at home. You’ll enjoy the stay like we did

The owners were exceptionally responsive. Ocean waves crashing all night. I was just a tad disappointed in the neighboring lot. But everything else was fabulous

We loved our stay in #222. We stayed at a different unit in the same complex last year and this one was far and away the better choice! We loved having the end unit for privacy, quiet, and the benefit of the side windows for air flow. The living area was spacious and the kitchen outfitted with everything you'd need. It was nice that the soda/beer/spices left by previous guests were available to us! The view from the lanai can't be beat and the ample beach gear was great. The only (very small) thing I would mention to folks is that there isn't a lot of space to store large suitcases as the bedroom and closets are very small. But I will take that tradeoff for the larger living room area any day! The book of info about the condo and places to go/things to do was very helpful. Walkable to several places for dinner/groceries and a short drive to Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua. Altogether a fabulous stay and we will definitely come back! Mahalo.

This is a older property well maintained. Very clean. Enjoyed that it is not crowed. View from the balcony was so beautiful & you are so close to the ocean. We saw many whales and turtles from the balcony. Unit is well stocked. Would stay here again.

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
