Overview

Property Details

Updated: Mar 25, 2015
3 bedroom, 3 bathrooms. sleeps 6

This luxury penthouse will take your breath away! Professionally decorated and remodeled 3 bedroom 3 bath penthouse condo with private elevator that opens directly into unit. Unbeatable ocean views from kitchen, living area, master bedroom, master bath, and a spectacular 30 foot x 10 foot lanai that is open to the living area and master suite. This penthouse is very romantic and private. Take a jetted bath while looking at the ocean, or lounge on the lanai while taking in Maui's beautiful sunsets. If you're visiting during peak season (December-April) you will see Humpback whales breaching the oceans surface as they mate and breed here in Maalaea Bay yearly. Enjoy walking or running along miles of white sandy beach, or swimming with the turtles in the ocean. Directly in front of unit is the world famous 'Freight Trains' surf spot aka 'Maalaea Pipelines'. Walk to the Maui Ocean Center (a favorite Hawaii attraction), or Maui Golf & Sports Park- Enjoy this tropical miniature golf putting course, bumper boats (with water guns), rock climbing, and the x-treme trampoline. Great fun for everyone! If you like to snorkel, scuba dive, snuba, or sportfishing, then take one of several excursions that leave the harbor daily. The sunset dinner cruise is always a great romantic way to start the evening. There is so much to do within walking distance and even more with Maalaea being centrally located, it makes for the best Maui vacation experience.

About the Owner

We have been coming to Maui for the last 25 years and always have loved it so much. On our 25th wedding anniversary we bought our first condo in Kihei. Our family and friends enjoyed it so much that we decided to purchase more properties to use as vacation rentals. Our son and daughter-in- law live on island and personally see to each of our properties. It has become a family affair.

Spacious 3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5
This penthouse condo was the perfect place for our family of 4 adults and 3 children. The condo is immaculate and beautifully renovated! The pics don't lie! The bedrooms are spacious and we really liked having separate bathrooms off each of the bedrooms. All amenities are provided for your convenience. John was very kind and gracious and provided us a very detailed informative review of local beaches and restaurants and sights. The central location was perfect as this was our first visit to Maui and we toured around a lot of the island but could go pretty much everywhere in 20 minutes to half an hour. Definitely would recommend this place and hope to go back again!!

Spacious condo and great centralized location for entire island activities

  • 4 of 5
This was our first trip to Maui and the location in the center of the island was fantastic. 30 minutes in either direction and you were somewhere new. Harbor right next door made for great ease and fun watching the boats and the "freight train" surfing spot. Easy in and out for car and good parking. Condo itself was very spacious, with the three bedrooms and full baths for each. It was just the two of us, but it would have plenty of room for 6. Beds very comfortable, kitchen was complete and had everything you would need to cook your own meals. The only con would be that a few items needed some care and upkeep, however that did not dampen the atmosphere. The lanai is one of the best aspects and we used every day. Turtles in front of condo all day long and if your brave enough you can get close enough with your GoPro and get some great shots. John was very easy to work with and responsive.

Owner's Response: I received details on the items mentioned that were in need of "some care and upkeep". One was an ottoman leg that was falling off and has since been epoxied in place. The other item was a loose cabinet door hinge that has also been repaired and is no longer an issue. I really do appreciate my guests feedback when it comes to repairs, especially when given the opportunity to repair or replace whatever is broken during their stay. I do my best to keep this property in tip top shape. Mahalo for your feedback.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in this beautiful condo. The photos don't lie- it really is that nice. Plenty of room for our 5 adults. Immaculate, and had everything we needed, and more. John met us at check in and explained everything so we weren't searching for things. Pool and beach area convenient. Location is wonderful, and quick to everything. Nearby restaurants made it easy when we got home from a day of driving and seeing the sites. We even carved out an evening of pizza and wine on the lanai while the kids went out for sushi- beautiful. Stay here if you can. Pricey but worth it !
