We love coming to Maui and only had 4 days so spend. Great location to experience the island. Beautiful sunsets, ocean just below us. Watching the turtles grazing among the rocks was a real treat. We had everything we needed for a perfect time.

Aloha! Our stay was spectacular! Beautiful view too! The place was so close to the ocean, spotted whales and turtles everyday! The walk along the beach close by, and falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean below, priceless! The place was so clean and had everything we needed! Loved all the ocean decor, from the color of the walls and tile to the wonderful pictures and mirrors too! We love the location of your place in Maui and can't wait to return! And we hope that will be very soon! Mahalo!

We have stayed at this property numerous times, and enjoyed it very much. We love to be on the lanai watching whales, sea turtles and magnificent sunsets. The studio condo. is comfortable and conveniently appointed. We definitely plan to visit again!

This is a large, pretty, well-decorated studio with a spectacular ocean view, sitting feet from the water. The lanai is also surprisingly spacious. I sat out there for hours watching whales in the distance. The condo is in an excellent location, minutes from Kaanapali (Black Rock beach), with other beaches nearby. Jamie and Will are excellent hosts: friendly and responsive, with lots of good tips. The bathroom is a decent size, though with its configuration, guests with mobility issues may have some problems. Also, there is no direct beach access in front, if that is important to someone. Otherwise, this is a fantastic choice for those looking for a place in West Maui.

We very much enjoyed our stay here. Clean, nice amenities, everything you need in the kitchen, plus lovely sunsets every night. The sun drops right into the ocean at the north edge of Lanai. The beach chairs, towels and cooler were everything for us beach bums to have an enjoyable trip. Thanks!

Perfect place for a getaway for two. Feels like an upscale hotel, easy check in and parking. Whaler’s store is an easy walk and has great poke. We also enjoyed walking to Miso Phat for excellent sushi! The rocking chairs on the lani were are favorite spot and we spent a lot of time watching the endless whales and turtles.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We have stayed other places on Maui & this is THE best yet! The pictures do not do it justice, you have to see for yourself what a beautiful location and property this is! Everything is so clean, perfectly stocked, and truly amazing. This is located close to beautiful beaches & our favorite restaurants we drove just minutes to. The communication from the Hula Hideaway staff was excellent, very attentive & above & beyond helpful. We just got back and are already recommending Hula Hideaway to all our friends and family. We’re planning on booking our next family vacation at one of the Hula Hideaway properties that’ll accommodate our kids. Thanks for helping make our 25th wedding celebration trip so fabulous with this gorgeous place we stayed at!!

Traveling to Maui for our 42nd anniversary. We want oceanfront & we got it! Big swells warning were issued so there were times we felt the waves hitting the sea wall. Whales & sea turtles did not disappoint! Unit itself could use some freshening up. Walking distance to several food/groceries/beaches. Overall we enjoyed our Maui getaway! Thank you!

Been using this same condo for years. Perfect location in a quieter neighborhood. The view cannot be beat. Close to any and everything you need. Be back 2026

This condo was amazing. One room condo that had fun, clean decor and plenty of space to spread out. But the view of the ocean/ bay (toward Molokai) was unbeatable. We just sat on the balcony (sorry, lanai 😀) and watched the whales breach in the distance. Candidly, we were a little apprehensive about the condo since it was so reasonably priced and photos can be deceiving, but my goodness, it was perfect and I would say we hit a homerun with it. The owner was very courteous. Close proximity to several nice beaches and restaurants and plenty of day trip opportunities from here. Can’t recommend this place highly enough (for two people)!!

Great location with everything you need for your W. Maui visit. On the ocean with a great view from lanai. It was humpback whale season and we could see them right from the lanai. Clean and comfortable and convenient. Would stay again.

Perfect location, with direct access to the ocean. Falling asleep to the sound of the water. Breakfast with a view of Whales and Turtles. The place was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The host responded quickly when contacted Would go back in a heartbeat

We had a wonderful time at Joe and Naomi’s oceanfront condo. It was wonderful eating breakfast on the lanai each day while listening to the crashing surf. We were able to see green sea turtles every day and could see whales pretty much anytime we were out on the lanai. Plus the incredible views of both Lana’i and Moloka’i islands. And don’t miss the best cinnamon rolls you will ever eat just down the road at Papi’s Ohana. The condo had everything we could ask for and we would absolutely love to stay here again the next time we visit Maui!

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this condo as part of our Maui vacation. The location and environment is excellent. The condo was very nice, exactly as advertised, with beautiful ocean views and comfortably furnished. I would recommend this property as a great place for couples.

This condo was everything as advertised. We were on the 3rd floor and were right above the water. The view enabled us to see whales, sea turtles and a great sunset. There was a great view of Lanai and Moloka'i. Our host was very, very helpful in us making our plans for a great 40th anniversary.

Carole S.

Our stay was amazing! Melissa’s place is immaculate and is set up for everything you need. The covered lanai is the perfect place to watch the whales. The one small drawback is no beach but within a short walk beautiful beaches to enjoy.

February 2024

We had a great week at this condo. Check in and out was easy and the place was very clean. It was very quiet as we didn't hear any neighbor or road noise. I add my voice to the other reviews that the location was amazing. We absolutely loved watching the many whales in the distance from the balcony and even loved using the binoculars that were in the dresser drawer. We ended up wanting a beach chair and since it was the same price to rent one as to buy one, we bought one and left it in the closet. Because we were there for 6 days, the only thing I would wish for was another set of bath towels to have fresh ones after a few days. Other than that, the accommodations were perfect!

This place was what I was looking for, some place to rest, relax and reset. The views alone were amazing, but the attention to little details exceeded our expectations (board games, beach equipment, stocked kitchen). The daily rainbows and whales in the distance left us in complete awe. We cooked and dined on the lanai as we enjoyed the melodic sounds of the waves. The location of the condo was perfect for the activities we wanted to do. Mahalo Jamie and Will for making our stay memorable!

Amazing property. Ya really can’t get any closer to the water without gettin wet. Oh and breathtaking sunsets too.

February 2024

Perfect. Condo looks almost new - very well appointed, all the little details. Location is perfect - short walk to little market or short drive to Nāpili Village and the big market, Joeys Kitchen (yum) and Boss Frog. But the best is the lanai - literally 10’ from the sea wall and on the third floor so you have 180 degree views of Molokai and Lanai and in season fantastic whale watching. We saw spouts all day long and LOTS of breaches, fin slaps and flukes. Wonderful stay.

Overall an enjoyable stay. Nicely appointed studio condo fully equipped with everything you need. An older unit and complex, but maintained and in working order. AC was quiet and cool. TV and internet worked great. Owner was responsive to communications.

Melissa's condo was perfect for the 2 of us. We loved the location. Restaurants, stores and everything you might need are within a short distance. The condo itself was clean and modern. We spent a lot of time on the lanai whale watching and enjoying the sunset. We would definitely stay here again!!!

Great place, literally right on the ocean. The view is amazing and mostly all you hear is just the sounds of the wind and the waves. Very relaxing and the condo itself is very well equipped. We'll be back!

We loved everything about this condo. It was the perfect size for the two of us....sitting out on the lanai watching whales and surfers, listening to the waves. Very nicely updated kitchen and bath areas, comfy bed, and easy access to beaches, shops, coffee shops, dining, and the main road back into Lahaina.

Daily whale and turtle watching from the balcony are fabulous! Feeling the ocean breeze and smelling the ocean sea throughout this beautiful condo are sublime.

Love visiting Maui Hawaii and enjoyed our condo and to die for views!!! Best selling point was the Lanai and being 20’ from ocean. No beach but the nearest is just a block away. Very comfortable bed and ceiling fans were all we needed to stay cool.

Our stay at The Maui House 207 was nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with a space that exceeded our expectations, offering everything as promised and more. The breathtaking view that unfolded before our eyes was a sight to behold, a symphony of natural beauty that left us in awe. Each morning, we indulged in the simple pleasure of savoring breakfast on the lanai, accompanied by the soothing melody of the ocean waves, a lullaby that serenaded us throughout the night. The location of the property was ideal, allowing us to easily explore and immerse ourselves in the wonders of Maui. Moreover, the owners' exceptional communication added an extra layer of comfort and assurance, ensuring that our every need was met with utmost care. Our experience at The Maui House 207 was truly unforgettable, a testament to the perfect blend of tranquility, luxury, and hospitality that made our stay an absolute delight.

I absolutely loved this property! I can hardly wait to come back. I plan to come back to Maui next November. However, I will have a friend with me and wonder whether or not you might possibly have a two bedroom at the same location on the water. Thank you for an absolutely wonderful stay. I wish I would’ve stayed here my whole trip.

Great spot! Very quiet, clean and comfortable. Everything was within easy walking distance, beach, restaurants and stores. And the view from the lanai of Molokai and Lanai was outstanding. Definitely looking forward to returning

Myself, my wife and daughter booked this accommodation for December 28 & 29, 2024 during our vacation at West Maui. Check in procedure was very smooth and as per guidance. Inside of room was clean and nicely decorated. View of ocean was fantastic from the room as well as lanai. I like the place very much.

We loved falling asleep every night to the sound of the ocean waves. The bed was comfortable, which is invaluable to me since I have fibromyalgia. The space was inviting and everything we needed it to be.

A handful of issues. Microwave worked, then it didn't. Worked and it didn't. After monkeeing around, found that the outlet behind the frig only half worked. Had to run an extension thru the bath. Light above the sink was burnt out, but replaced by Charles. Nice guy ! Nice computer, but not hooked up to anything. Looking to turn on the TV, but there were 3 remotes. Really ! Got directions on my phone that said " do this and that " if that didn't work, try this. Either is works or it doesn't .How about a universal remote ? Charles took care of this. Great view, bed and pillows. Tenant above was horrible. Felt like they were coming thru the ceiling every step, Assigned parking spot was fine, as long as you liked to have your car covered in bird turd every day.
