“Beautiful apartment, attentive owners, great location”
Reviewed 20 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017
person found this review helpful

Our family of 3 just had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful condo. It is spacious, very clean, nicely furnished and has everything that is needed for a good time. The complex is located on a quiet street and right next to the beach. Beautiful view from lanai. Great big clean pool. Complex is small and most if the time there were just the 3 of us in the pool.
Walking distance from Ocean Center, nice restaurants and shops at the Maalea village. You can also book tours there. Easy access to freeway and great location to explore an island.
Amazing contrast to crowded Kihei and Lahaina, but just as comfortable and 10 minutes away from both. 10-15 minutes from grocery stores and Tropical Plantation with its farm stand where you can by fresh papaya and pineapples as well as vegetables and eggs.
Phil and Cris were very attentive, they sent us instructions on how to get to condo and how to go around and called about 1 day before the arrival to check if we are all set. They even left some food in the fridge when we said that we were arriving late at night.
If I ever go to Maui again, I will try to book this apartment again.

“Little piece of home”
Reviewed 18 January 2017 for a stay in November 2016

We loved staying at this beautiful condo. As this was our first family vacation via plane, I was a bit nervous to ensure we had everything we needed for the kid. Phil and Cris were amazing in letting us borrow toys and a lifejacket for him. The condo was more than well-equipped, and so appreciated, down to the laundry quarters and nail clippers. The condo itself absolutely gets 5 stars.

Everything else I'd rate at a 4 stars:
The location is central to the island, which is nice for day-trips, but is kind of hard if you just want to go down the street for food or to the grocery store, there's only 1 sit-down restaurant. We planned a simple menu ahead of time and cooked most of our meals at the condo.

There is a beach park next door, it was never too busy or noisy while we were there. There's enough sand space to build castles, but it's not an expansive beach. The waves were too big for our little dude (4yo) most of the time, and the wind can pick up quite a bit. It's the best beach on the island to take a long walk down.

The condo community is very quiet, or was when we were there. The pool was surprisingly unheated, so we didn't use it much.

Bottom line - this is a good place to just go hang out near the beach with a book.

Management Response
19 Jan 2017
Valerie, thank you for your review; so glad you and your family had a good time staying in our condo on Maui. Wanted to mention other restaurants at the Harbor Shops at Ma'alaea. Beach Bums is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with great food and prices and live entertainment at happy hour. Seascape is another terrific place to eat for lunch, but they're only open from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm. Cafe Del Vino has excellent Italian food, open for dinner between 4:00 pm and 9:30 pm, also has live entertainment. Ma'alaea General Store and Cafe is another place to grab a bite between 6:00 am and 6:00 pm, outdoor seating only or take out; it's also a good place to pick up a few grocery items. And of course there's always Carl's Jr. by the gas station, which has both sit-down and drive thru for fast food. Hope you'll come back again soon.

“The ultimate condo rental”
Reviewed 30 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016
person found this review helpful

The condo is just 10s of feet from the beach and nearly everything, except Hana, is within a reasonable drive. This condo was immaculate, everything you need to live comfortably, like your own home. We were amazed with all of the little details that Cris and Phil included: shampoo, beach toys/towels, and much, much more! We were absolutely blown away with the personalized card and goodies they left us too. I can't wait to come back and stay in their condo again!

“Fabulous home for two weeks!”
Reviewed 29 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Dear Phil and Cris,
Thank you so very much for a fabulous two weeks in your condo.  It felt just like home.  You have it stocked so thoroughly and thoughtfully we didn’t want for anything.  We were even able to host local family visitors with no problem.  We really appreciated how caring you were checking in on us during the local flooding and road closures too!  We were sad this time next year is already booked, but I’m sure we’ll return soon.
Happy Holidays!

“Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else on Maui”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016
person found this review helpful

Stayed in Cris and Phil's condo last October and had such an amazing time that we stated we would be back. Never thought we would be back a year later. We wanted to come back so much sooner that thought due to the amazing accommodations at this rental. You cannot beat the hospitality and service from Phil and Cris. They have thought of everything and are there for their renters. Cris checked in with us to make sure we were ready to arrive and if we needed anything. She also called again the night before we left to see how the trip was and to remind us of how to close up the condo. The POG juice and breakfast items were very delicious and appreciated after the long day of travel. Same as before we loved the beach chairs, coolers, and fins which were used everyday at the different beaches we went to. I recommend this rental to everyone I can get to listen to me rave about it.
