A memorable 2 week stay at the Maui Island Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
You cannot go wrong with the Maui Island Hideaway. Because the "Hideaway" is so close to the water we could hear the sounds of the water literally 24/7. Our day began with a wonderful walk on the beach and back to the lanai to have our morning coffee. Many mornings we saw the whales dancing, along with a group of turtles peaking their heads out of the water. The breeze coming through the condo was wonderful and it made sleeping so comfortable. This condo is well taken care of and nicely decorated. The location of the "Hideaway" is very central to the west and south side of the Island which for us was perfect. We had a wonderful 2 weeks at the Maui Island Hideaway and we will be back.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Ann W
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 pick the are of Ma'alaea because we fell it is one of the most centrally located areas on the Island. We also like the fact that is not fill 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.

Love the Banyons!

  • 4 of 5
We have stayed at the Banyons 5 times before with different owner (sold his units so had to find another). This unit was very nice-all the amenities and the water filter pitcher was very nice-saved a lot of bottled water that we would have purchased otherwise. We would definitely come back to thus unit!

We appreciate your kind review and it was a pleasure having you as guests. We bought the Brita for the very reason you mentioned. Not having to purchase water bottles all the time. Glad you noticed. We try to keep up on the amenities for our guests to enjoy. Thank you for spending the time to review our "Hideaway" and we can't wait to have you back.

Fantastic Location and Beautiful View So close to the water!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the Hideaway! This was a anniversary and whale watching trip for us and the location could not have been any more perfect! Wendall told us that we could see the whales from our lanai and in fact we did spend several hours each day enjoying the beautiful view, and several whale and turtle sightings! We did take a sailboat cruise out on the bay to get up close to the whales and it was the highlight of our trip. The cruises leave from the dock at the end of our block which made it so easy. The condo has everything that you need is updated, decorated very hawaiian, clean and very comfortable. We used the grill out by the pool one afternoon and it was great. The pool area is very nice, and the beach area is very private and comfortable for sunning and viewing the sea turtles up close. Most times we sat at the beach outside the condo there was maybe one other couple out there you really have it all to yourselves. The public beach is a short walk and perfect for a long stroll on the beach. The location is perfect being so close to the water, we really enjoyed out stay and would love to go back when we have the opportunity. Thank you Wendall & Sally for sharing your home with us!

Unforgettable Beautiful Experience

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 unforgettable weeks at Maui Island Hideaway –a comfortable condo with direct access to the beach and beautiful ocean front view! The location is very quiet and at the same time very central. You can reach Kihey, Lahaina und Kahului in only 15 min by car. The owners Wendall and Sally are extremely generous and very helpful. So we felt like in paradise and therefore we will use any opportunity to come back again! Mahalo for everything. See you next time. Best regards from Zurich, G&Y

This is where you want to be!

  • 5 of 5
Location: We travelled all over the island, seeing every little nook and cranny. What we realized was that our home base, the "Hideaway" is ideally located on the island. You're centrally located between Kihei (our favourite town), the airport, Lahaina, et al. You're also near some of the best beaches around, including Sugar Beach, the one on which the Hideaway sits, which has one of the best views on all of the island.
One suggestion is to stop to get supplies from one of the major grocers near the airport, when you first arrive, to get a firm base of what you need: beer, snacks, meat, veggies, etc. Then you can shop at the nearby general stores for convenience or 10 minute drive to Foodland for following shopping needs.

Amenities: The "\Hideaway has everything you need to operate comfortably: dishes, utensils, bedding, beach supplies, cleaning supplies, washer/dryer, brand new oven/stove, brand new TV/sound system, etc. The balcony has the best view. The unit being on the second floor is great in that you get an elevated view but you're still quick to access parking or the pool by elevator or stairs.

Facilities: The pool area is superior in its craftsmanship and comfort. It has the only Jacuzzi in the area. You wouldn't think something like this would be necessary in a hot area but it's amazing, especially in the hot, bright sun.
One of, if not the biggest highlight about this building is its proximity to the ocean. Not only is there no road between your balcony and the ocean but you're so near to it that you can see the sea turtles floating by. Apparently this luxury of being so close to the ocean is not something you'll see anymore on Maui as they have changed their regulations so that buildings need to be built much further from the ocean.

Owners: Accommodating to the max. Wendall and Sally only want you to have the best possible experience on Maui and in the Hideaway. I can't even go to the lengths at which Wendall went to make sure our stay was excellent, suffice to say that it couldn't have been as good without having them to help us out.

Conclusion: If you can get in to the Hideaway, go with the opportunity and you will be happy you did.

Beautiful retreat in paridise!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this condo for my God daughter as a suprise for her visit. I found this unit on VRBO and only had the photo's from the site to go by. It was everything I had hoped for and more. My God daughter was thrilled to say the least. The unit was very clean, and well appointed. The view from the lanai is wonderful, and was perfect for watching the Humpback Whales frolic in the bay. I would surely recommend this unit to all who are looking to relax in Maui. Also, the owner Wendell, is very professional in his booking, and easy to work with. Mahalo and Aloha.
