Property Details

Updated: May 16, 2015
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Maui...what a great place for a vacation and especially the Village of Ma'alaea! Check our calendar and come on over.

Relax oceanfront with temperatures in the 80's, trade winds blowing and the lanai chairs waiting for you. If you are awake just before the sun rises, you can see the turtle heads bobbing up for air....right from the lanai!

Our one bedroom, one bath, second floor condo has a magnificent and panoramic ocean view. One of the few places in Ma'alaea, where you can hear the sound of the waves as you sit on the lanai. You will have a hard time moving from the lounge chair on the lanai, to discover the Island's many gems. I've felt this way for many years and now I live on Maui!

If you don't see the dates you want available on my calendar, please contact me. I also help friends rent their condos and can probably find you an oceanfront condo for your stay.

We have covered, assigned parking and there is an elevator and carts in the building to help you move your luggage and groceries to and from the condo with ease.

Our location is so central to everything, you may want to do on your visit to Maui. After your day's sightseeing, you can come back to a swim in the pool or barbecue on the outside grills.

At the end of our dead-end road, you will find a 5-mile white sandy beach that is the longest walking beach on Maui. Since it is only accessible from our road, you will find it all to yourself many days. The beach adjoins a bird sanctuary and you will be treated to all kinds of rare birds unique to Hawaii. We also have a small sandy kiddie beach right in front of the condo.

The kitchen is fully equipped. The bathroom is clean and comfortable, and has ample linens.

The bedroom has plantation shutters and a ceiling fan to keep you cool. The comfortable bed will help you get a good night sleep, after your day of exploration.

Ask us about the 2-bedroom condos we have available for only $130 - $140/nt.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place had everything you could ask for and more. The sound of the waves outside made every second relaxing. The pool was very nice to hang out at after a long day of adventuring.

Barbara, Thank you so much for renting us your condo. We spent 5 wonderful days there, and I have to say we loved every moment. When we first pulled up to the building we both kinda thought 'oh, oh' but when we opened the door, we both started jumping around with excitement. The lanai and view were amazing. The fouton wasn't the best, but I insisted on sleeping there so I could fall asleep to the sound of the waves every night (I put the mattress on the floor). I got up every morning and sat on the comfortable lanai lounge chair and wrote in my journal as the sun rose. The condo was very well stocked - there was nothing we wanted that you didn't have. The BBQ and pool area were great too. After we arrived there, we found your Maui Revealed book and in it is warned against staying in Ma'alaea...why, I don't know. It's centrally loacted, and I liked feeling away from it all, unlike all the other touristy towns on the island. We took day trips each day -2 to the South Coast, one to the NW side and Iao valley, and one day to Hana. I hightly recommend the drive to Hana, it's absolutely amazing. We ate twice at the restaurant downstairs - DELICIOUS food, excellent service and amazing view. Again, thanks so much for making my vacation a wonderful one. I definately want to return to your condo one day.

Almost ruined our vacation.

  • 1 of 5
My wife and I arrived at this unit in the evening, which was a good thing. The darkness definitely aided in hiding the true appearance of this unit. Having such success with VRBO units in the past, we were shocked at what the sunrise showed us. There was mold around the refrigerator. The bathroom was disgusting. We had to cover the furniture with sheets to sit on it. We even went so far as to start cleaning it ourselves. When we finally reached the owner, she sent one of her people over and did not have the decency to stop by when she was in the building. There is definitely no pride of ownership nor any regard for the people that spend their hard-earned vacation money here. We saved for two years to celebrate Christmas in Maui amongst some other milestones in our lives. Unfortunately the were overshadowed by filth and grime. I caution you to rent this unit and say shame to the lady that offers it.

Owner's Response: Aloha, so sorry this guest felt their vacation was almost ruined but some clarifying facts need to be stated.

First, the owner was not in Maui but lives on the mainland and is a gentleman who was not in the building while these guests were here so there was no owner neglect.

Second, If the condo was "filth and grime' why was there no mention of this to the two contact people and three telephone numbers provided until 4 days before the guests were leaving and not immediately after the first morning sunrise. We do take pride in making sure all guests have a great experience on Maui including the cleanliness of the condo, however if we are not notified of any dissatisfaction, we can't immediately assess the problem and correct any situation.

Third, upon notice of a perceived problem there was an offer of a solution which was rejected. The contact person went to the condo to assess the situation and was told by the guest that they put sheets over the furniture so they wouldn't get any suntan oil on the furniture...never that it was too dirty to sit on.

It was also never mentioned there was a refund of the cleaning fee....even though it was hard to determine what it might have looked like when they arrived since so much time had passed. This guest could have also been moved immediately to another condo so as not to 'almost ruin a vacation'.

We take great pride in providing a great experience for all guests and will take care of any concern....if we are aware of it.

Barbara, we had a great time at the condo! The welcome basket with the coffee and bread was very nice, especially since we got to Maui at 11:00 PM. The ocean sounds, the views were all very nice. And I must say the unit is well equipped...thanks we had a great time.

Great Stay, great location.

Our family of 4 adults stayed at Barbara's apartment in Ma'alea for almost a week. Our stay was fantastic and the apartment had everything that was promised. The ocean-front view was excellent. Since most of the non-water attractions are towards Kahului, the location is more convenient than other rentals which are further north. Also, the boats depart to Molokini from Ma'alea harbor, which is walking distance from the apartment. Parking is in the basement and very safe. Towels were clean and the furniture is nice. The patio has an excellent view of the water. Barbara returned our phone calls promptly and was very pleasant to interact with.

Barbara was very thoughtful and had a fresh pineapple banana bread for us.

Thank you Barbara for a terrific stay. We hope to come back again soon.

Just returned home after spending 6 weeks in this condo. I can't say enough good things about the place , the view is the best, everything you could need in the kitchen . Lots of linens and cleaning stuff. Barbara is a delight to deal with. This is our 4th time staying in her condo and we have reserved it for another 6 weeks in 2013. I think that speaks volumes about the place and the owner. See you next year (10 mths but who is counting.

The dream honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I grew slightly anxious about Ma'alaea prior to our trip b/c the area received mediocre/poor reviews from traveling guides due to high winds and the remote location. We couldn't beat the rates for this condo, however, and for young newlyweds I have to admit that money was the deciding factor to stay here. After 10 days in Barbara's condo, we realized that the harbor community is in fact Maui's best kept secret! There is no other place on the island that would allow us to stay in a fabulous oceanfront condo only minutes from the best sand beach in Maui. If you enjoy staying in an area "off the beaten path" and want to get the best value for your dollar, then this condo is for you!!!

The bed was very comfortable, and we even spent several nights on the pull out sofa with the ocean serenading us to sleep. The pool was extremely quiet and relaxing - in fact the entire condo is quiet, which was very important b/c windows must be open to allow the tradewinds through.

This location is central to any activities you want to explore on the island, but it also allows you to escape the "tourist" feel of other towns. We made several friends with Hawaiian natives at the beach and the local staff at our favorite bar/grill BeachBums were amazing! Walk to the bar during the day and Travis will provide you with lots of drinks, jokes, and good times.

We can not wait to return to the island, and I've already referred the condo to others!
