Great place to stay in Maui, celebrating our anniversary. The view is beautiful from the Lanai, and the place is comfortable. Loved being on the fourth (top) floor.
We were surprised by how small it seemed when we first walked in. However, after settling in, it was plenty big for two of us. The condo had everything we needed, including plenty of plugs. Opening the front and lanai doors allows cooling breeze. Sue was awesome and responsive!
The view of the ocean is beautiful. The view straight-out and to the right are unobstructed of the ocean. There is a building to the left, but you can see the ocean past it. It was fun to watch the sea turtles swim past, including one that was the largest we've seen. Sunsets are gorgeous.
There is some nice snorkeling right out from the room. It is a little difficult to get to the water. The steps down were cordoned off, and it is rocky as you go out into the water. However, it was easy enough to maneuver for us. We picked up some snorkel gear right across the street at Boss Frogs.
The facility doesn't have a beach. There is a lawn area right in front of the water, with some comfortable chaise lounges and chairs available. There is a small beach right next to the condos that is easily accessible if you're looking for sand. There are also other beaches nearby.
Short easy drive to Lahaina. We loved Honokowai Okazuya restaurant across the street. Grocery store was very close.
Highly recommend for your stay in Maui!
We loved this property. We had breakfast and dinner every night on the balcony and listened to the soft sounds of the ocean waves crashing on shore. I would highly recommend this place to any couple or family with small children, which was the case in our trip. I wouldn't suggest this for 4 adults or family with teenagers as it will be crowded due to the size. The location was great. We were not far from anything you would want or need. Sue was amazing and was very nice. She reached out to me via phone call to make sure a small issue with the tv in the bedroom was resolved. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Sue.
Enjoyed every minute. Would go again in a heartbeat.
Wonderful ...just as it was described and more. Awesome view and great meditation garden.The bali themed furniture and decor is a nice touch. We would give it the highest rating! Close to all we like to do.Would love to return sometime soon.
The location was perfect, overlooking the ocean we had beautiful sunsets , sea turtles , beautiful palm trees and a variety of birds and flowers. The garden and koi pond in the center of the complex were well tended and lovely. The location was great, quiet but walkable or drivable to entertainment , historical Lahaina and many great beaches . The house amenities like snorkel and beach gear, well supplied kitchen, travel guide and suggestions , ease of parking, nice linens made the stay comfortable and easy. Everything was very clean and well kept.
Sue provided us the warmest welcome and her condo made for a perfect stay! She was the best to work with providing us with welcome letter that included Maui Cruisers contact info to rent our car, which they are also fabulous and also super easy to work with! Condo is right on the water, pool and hot tub very short walk to. Beach literally on other side of property. Highy recommend Boss Frogs located across the street for all rental needs!! Fish Market across street for good eats. Condo has many dishes, pots and pans, glasses, flatware what ever you need it's there! Thank you again to Sue for making are vacation such a great memorable experience!!! Also, note to lodgers definitely read the book Maiu Revealed provided by Sue, has all the information you will ever need, best maps!!! Mahalo
Wonderful accommodations for our Maui getaway! A great location with an amazing ocean view!
We had a great time staying at the paki Maui.. the unit was well equipped, bed was comfortable, unit had all necessary kitchen tools and beach chairs, umbrellas, etc.. View was amazing... So many whales.. plus spending a day lounging on the lawn and swimming in front of the complex was awesome when we didn't feel like heading out a few days.. there are tons of beaches, restaurants and day activities within a close drive or walk.. we look forward to coming back soon!!
I was solo on this trip, so the smallness of the place was perfect for me. I think it would be crowded for more than two people though. That being said, I loved my stay. The unit itself boasts a gorgeous ocean view with prime viewing for sunsets each night. Did I mention watching sea turtles and whales from your private balcony? It was amazing. In the mornings and evenings, i left the doors open to enjoy those amazing ocean breezes. The unit has no A/C, but I didn't really miss it. Shut the blinds in the afternoon to keep the place cool during the midday sun. You can snorkel right outside of the condo. Every morning is low tide making it a great snorkeling opportunity. Grocery stores are close. An ABC Store is walking distance. The Fish Market across the street is great! You are close to Lahaina without being in all of the Lahaina chaos. I did day trips to South Shore and Upcountry. The layout of the island means driving anywhere can take longer than normal. Enjoy the drive. You're on Island Time. There is no rush! Sue was a great host who made sure I had everything I needed. I would certainly stay here again. Highly recommend if you're looking for a quiet getaway.
On a mother, daughter trip. We managed to see hundreds of whales and three turtles from the lanai. The view was beautiful and the sunsets astounding, not to mention the sunrises out the front door.
We could not have chosen a better place for three people to experience Maui. It was so nice to have our own beach that was not crowded. There was always enough lounge chairs and the reefs helped keep the waves from getting too strong while floating in the waves.
The hot tubes was a nice bonus.
The host was very quick to respond.
Great location and beautiful sunsets overlooking the ocean
We had a very relaxing and lovely vacation staying at this location.
The view was amazing, right on the beach!
Don and Candy P.
The ocean front view was breathtaking. We really enjoyed setting on the lanai and enjoying beautiful sunsets, we saw many whales.
Great experience staying at this condo. Very clean. Super comfy bed. If you enjoy starting your day with coffee on a balcony overlooking (practically on top of!) the ocean, this is your place. Nice central location too. Great communication from management company & at front desk.
My family and I had such an amazing time in this rental. We were very grateful for the opportunity to stay here. Sue was amazing and such a sweet lady! My husband and I would love to stay here again. The view from the room is outstanding! My parents have owned a unit in the same complex as this one for 20 years and it is definitely our favorite place to be. All the other guest that stay here as well are so nice and you get to meet some great people down at the pool and bbq. Thank you for having us Sue!!
Right on the water. Convenient neighborhood with beaches and shopping nearby.
The kitchen Sink drain is intended for a bathroom not a kitchen. I strongly suggest this is fixed.
The sliding doors for the closet need to be fixed.
a closet organizer is needed
The outside of the building and the waterscape are in need of some work.
The view is amazing.
The stand up fans are a waste
The windows in the bedroom whistle with the wind.
We found this small one bedroom unit to be just right for us two. It had everything we needed in a waterfront location. Everything was in walking distance. King bed was very comfortable. Lanai was a great size and we spent most of our time there. Glad to have stayed here
This place is great for 2 guests - gets very tight if you have more. The main photo of the living room is a bit deceptive in that there are no drapes on the sliding doors and therefore makes it look a little bigger - but still plenty of space for 2 guests.
Easy parking and the location is great to walk across the street to one of the better fish market shops on this side of the island (appropriately called "the Fish Market".
All in all excellent place and definitely would go back!
The place was nice. Very quiet and the view was stunning. It was smaller then it looked online but was sufficient. The place does not have a/c and it gets hot. I would not have stayed there if I had realized that. I am spoiled.
The location was perfect. Five minutes by car to Ka'anipali and close to the great snorkeling areas. The Fish Market, across the street had great food at very reasonable prices. The condo was very clean, and comfortable. The view from the lanai was absolutely incredible at sunset. We would love to stay there again, hopefully during Humpback whale season.
Nice and clean apartment. The owner was super nice. We loved the lanai. We had a great view of the channel between Maui and Molokai. We saw many whales. The beach on the property is fairly rocky. The apartment was well equipped and enjoyed the snorkeling gear. I would highly recommend this place if you are doing a lot of activities on the island.
The condo is well appointed with a great view of the beach. The beach in front of the condo is good for snorkeling. There is a really good town beach less than 2 miles away. The convenience of the local boardwalk for a morning walks was great.
Fantastic views and just steps to the beach. This property has beach access and plenty of amenities that made our stay fantastic. Sue the property owner was easy to work with and very responsive .
It is perfect for two! Might get a bit crowded with more than that but it was perfect for what we needed. Lots of amenities in the unit and the views are stunning.
Loved it 😊 plan on staying there again hope next year if all goes well.
We enjoyed whale watching from the lanai and decided to stay in nightly for meals so we took advantage of the well stocked kitchen or walked to the nearby food trucks, restaurants or the grocery to bring food back. The property was very quiet and everyone was friendly. The mattress was so comfortable that we found the name brand so that we can search it to purchase for our home. Most days we saw a rainbow on the mountains behind the condo.
This condo is small but the location is great. You won’t find many condos that have a ocean view with whales and turtles cruising by, beach access with ocean water you can snorkel, swim or lay in the sun.
The pool, hot tub and bbq was also great.
Free parking, walking distance to coffee shops, ABC store, shaved ice and food trucks.
And yes it has elevator access to the 4th floor or take the stairs.
The owner was available for our questions the day we arrived.
We enjoyed our stay.
a little tight for 4 people. ideal for 2.
appreciated the items left in the kitchen from previous guests, we left some also.
enjoyed this property overall and would recommend
Great communication with the property owner, this was helpful throughout the whole booking and rental process. The building complex and unit are a little dated, however the sunset views from the lanai are beautiful.
This was our first time renting from VRBO. We liked the fact that the owner communicated with us well ahead of time informing us of the paperwork necessary to travel to Hawaii during CoVid. Everything was in the rental as promised except a cooler. I contacted the property manager, and one was delivered the following morning. This condo is very small, and well suited for two people. The ocean views are breathtaking! We would definitely rent this unit again!
We had a wonderful experience. Very good location for everything
Stunning sun sets and large balcony to enjoy them, Is the perfect combo. An ideal romantic getaway spot to enjoy the laid-back local feel of this Hawaiian town. Awesome tacos and crabcakes from across the street as well a block away one of the best coffee shops on the island. It's adjacent to a local park that is dog friendly and fisherman worthy . Basically just a neighborhood vibe worth noting and appreciating. Food trucks down the block and local tour operators nearby makes this a nice and inviting stay.. There's two reefs That make a protective area to snorkel or a little ones to enjoy the ocean. It has a well-maintained pool and hot tub as well as eating area with two grills they were a joy to use. The unit itself has a coffee maker and full-size refrigerator as well as a microwave confection oven, and a electric stove top PS just hit +30 that's the start button. Granite countertops throat and one of the best viewing areas to experience the sunsets. I would recommend staying here and also appreciated the great communication that Sue and I had to make my stay worth every moment of it
We very much enjoyed staying in this unit. Although it is quite small, it was adequate for my wife and I. Very clean, beautiful views, well appointed condo. Easy access to the beach/grassy area with ample beach chairs and shade. Good snorkeling too. We would just caution future renters to note the size. Would be tight for more than 2 people. Thank you!!
Planned a week at the condo to get away from the craziness of every day life and celebrate my birthday. It was fantastic! The relaxation from sitting on the lanai and listening to the waves, along with the beautiful breeze really set the mood. The beautiful condo provided us all we needed to enjoy our time at the beachfront and in the condo. The condo was close to grocery stores, some restaurants and only about 10 mins from Lahaina, where we did excursions, shopping and dining. Sue was awesome to work with and the process was easy. Definitely a “go back to” place!
Snorkeling right out of the building was fun
Very nice location. Condo has everything you need in order to cook and eat some of your meals there. Pool is well maintained and the ocean view and access is amazing!
Beautiful and immaculate!!
Definitely worth it.
We had a wonderful time! The condo was perfect for our trip.
Fabulous stay, great property, unbeatable view. From the fourth and top floor you can see everything... Turtles, whales, nice sands, people at play, and stunning sunrise and sunsets. Bring water shoes for the rocks. Well furnished apartment with everything you need. Mahalo and enjoy!
This property was beautiful but the views were incredible our only disappointment was that the furnishings were extremely large for the space
This was a very nice quaint romantic unit with an outstanding view. The view on the balcony was like you were sitting on the balcony of a cruise ship. The room was comfortable but small. So there was not a lot of room to unpack. We left our suitcases in the hall. The kitchen has a stove top, convection microwave a refrigerator and dishwasher. There is no oven and laundry is coin operated down the hall. Wi-fi was excellent and parking is included. There is no air conditioning in the unit and it did get warm during the day for the few hours that we were in the room during that time. However, the nights were comfortable. The Fish Market just across the street is an excellent place to eat and Front Street is less than 5 miles away. Overall a very nice cozy place. So, pack light.
Loved it, extremely well appointed and equipped. Great for a couple. Not good for those who want to be on a swimming beach or people who like pool sitting. Beautiful walk or short drive to Airport Beach which is great for swimming. Time spent on balcony watching surf, surfers, sail boats, canoes, and even an occasional whale or turtle was absolutely divine. Most affordable ocean front accommodation I’ve found after years of travel to the islands. Balcony gets very hot in the afternoon.
Fantastic location and easy access to everything you need. The condo is furnished perfectly and the views are outstanding. We lost count of all the whales that we saw. Great place, great communication and very responsive to any questions - I highly recommend it.
Beautiful well maintain property, great location for watching whales and doing nothing , walking distance to everything you need.
We loved the view, and sitting out on the lanai morning or evening. Beautiful sunsets...we were able to see whales, especially using the binoculars provided. Sue the owner was responsive to requests. Wonderful unit and location!
We enjoyed our time at this condo at the Paki Maui. The unit is attractive, well furnished, and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked. The views from the balcony are gorgeous. Sue was very responsive and great to work with. We definitely recommend Sue and this condo!
Working with Vrbo was great--no problems. Our only disappointments that the place was advertised as a luxury condo. We were disappointed in the size of he apartment. With the mirrors on all the walls, the place looked much bigger than it really was. After we arrived we re read all the information about the place and noticed that they did not list the sq footage. I would recommend that the owner do that so that renters would know. The location was great and the condo was very nice. Just did not meet expectations.
My husband and I took our first vacation together without the kids in 10 years. This was the most enjoyable thing I've done in ages! The condo is well kept, nicely stocked with necessities and you can literally sit on the patio and watch the whales depending on when you go! We were there mid January and sitting on the patio with morning coffee watching whales quickly became our favorite. The view is spectacular and the condo area relatively quiet. I highly recommend renting a car while there - we were able to do many adventures during our stay. From the road to Hana, to watching the sunset on top of the volcano, discovering Little Beach as well as what became our favorite little eating spot of Captain Jack's (excellent Mai Tais) walking through the shops, and learning local history, this was a vacation to remember. We will happily stay here again in the not too distant future!
The photos of this unit do not show how small it really is. It was suggested by the owner for us store our suitcases and other items in our car. The bed was very comfortable and the owner was responsive when we had questions.
