“Beautiful Quiet Centrally Located Hideaway”

We really enjoyed our stay in #218 for two weeks! Very centrally located to visit other areas of Maui. It's a short walk to the Harbor on one end and a short stroll to the other end is the Haycraft Beach Park access with miles of beach to walk! There's a shower area to wash off the sand at the park (& at the condo). It gets a little crowded on the weekends with the locals, but it's entertaining and during the week more private. My husband and I walked to Sugar Beach Resort a few times (almost 3 miles one way) and enjoyed a bite at Dina's Sandwitch (fun unique place to go - opens at 11:00 am). We agree with the other positive reviews so won't duplicate info. We would recommend this unit for a couple or single person, unless you want to use the pull-out bed, but it would be tight. We were able to watch whales from the lanai with our binoculars (the unit does have binoculars, but ours are easier to focus). The complex has it's own private smaller beach we enjoyed almost nightly watching the boats, some whales and turtles swimming. I would recommend getting your own oil/butter, coffee and all food essentials (Costco is close to the airport). The unit is well equipped with pots/pans, dishes, serving/cooking utensils, beach towels, etc. There are coffee filters, salt and pepper and some cooking sprays and one steak seasoning. Would also recommend shutting the drapes once the sunrise turns into direct morning sun, since it can get very warm for a couple hours (good time to hit the road/beach!); though once it passes, the breeze and views are wonderful the rest of the day! There is an air conditioner for those that prefer that, but we don't.

The Maui Dive Shop rents snorkel gear in the harbor, and is very convenient to return. The harbor also has a few eateries that were okay depending on the day. The Happy Hour at Three's in Kihei is a great spot with local shopping booths, also the Happy Hour at 5 Palms & great calamari (can rent paddle boards, kayaks, etc. too). Captain Steve's whale watching excursion was very good. Highly recommend the hike around Dragon's Teeth in Kapalua! The traffic during high season is the drawback, so be patient and go early to your destinations. There is plenty to see and do in Maui and two weeks didn't feel long enough; recommend reading the Maui Revealed book (there's an older release in the unit). The beauty of this condo is its stellar ocean-front view and sounds!!! Enjoy!

Aloha, Hum3

Mahalo, for such an extensive and wonderful review.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at our “Hideaway”.
We purchased our “Hideaway” because of the view of the ocean and the remote location, away from touristy areas, but close enough to drive to busy if you want. This is why you hear the sound of the ocean in the evening. This location is kind of the last bit of true Hawaii. . We also walk Ma’alaea / Sugar Beach every other morning before we start our day. We haven’t tried Dina’s Sandwich shop, but next time we walk Sugar Beach, we will be sure to stop in. Thanks for the recommendation. The other days we walk around the Harbor, where the snorkel boats launch and Ma’alaea triangle has a few interesting stores and restaurants. We often sit on our Lanai and go to our little beach out front to watch the tide pools come alive and see the plethora of turtles. In high season to watch the Whales Breach from the Lanai is a huge plus. You won’t get a better view unless you’re swimming with them or maybe a boat.
We try to keep or “Hideaway” stocked with as many essentials as we can, however some guests don’t replace some items, but you have a good base to start out with.

“A Pleasant Place to Stay”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The condo is well situated on the island, being about 15 minutes from the airport and inbetween Lahiana and Kihea. The condo is very quiet, neat and clean. Items to care for the condo and yourself are provided. The view from the lanai is beautiful. You can leave the windows open at night and fall asleep to the sounds of the waves as they lap onto the beach. Sugar Beach is a 4 minute walk away from the condo and that beach is great for walking and sun bathing. Also, a 4 minute walk away from the condo in the other direction, is the harbor shopping area with a few nice tourist stores, a restaurant and the aquarium. The condo is nicely furnished and the bed was very comfortable.
Though four persons can stay at the condo, that would be a little crowded. The couch in the living room folds out to a bed, but that makes things "tight" for everyone.
The owner was very responsive and very helpful. He was very helpful in his suggestions of what to see and where to go while in Maui and even sent us numerous brochures to help us decide what to do while there.
The condo property has a very small sandy beach, however, in the morning and evenings a number of turtles come very close to the shore and are fun to watch.
I would highly recommend this property to stay at while in Maui.

Maui getaway was perfect! The location was excellent, we have always stayed on the west side of the island, so this was a great location. This was our first time renting a condo, and we are so glad we did, I would definitely do it again. The views were beautiful, we were within walking distance from the beach which is where we spent every morning. Our favorite pastime was spent was watching the sea turtles, not many of those in Illinois. Our place was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Very sorry we had to leave, hope to come back again soon. Highly recommend!

Many Mahalo's for the kind review. We appreciate you taking time out of your day to this. We also walk Sugar/Ma'alaea Beach every morning before we start our day. We also walk around the Harbor. Ma'alaea is known for it's breezes which we cherish. We try to keep our "Hideaway" as up to day as possible. We have a few more items in store to update also. We picked the area of Ma'alaea because we felt it is one of the most centrally located areas on the Island. We also like the fact that is not filled with tourist which gives you the feel of true Hawaii. We can drive to busy and come back to piece and quiet with the sound of the waves. Again thank you for staying at our "Hideaway" and we can't wait to see you again.
