Jay's condo was amazing! So comfortable and well furnished with everything you could possibly need. The balcony has great views of the beach and Molokai - especially early in the morning when its clear. Wifi was fast and reliable and you're only metres from the beach snd water. Jay was easy yo vontact snd super friendly. Would highly recommend.
He apartment was perfect - modern, clean and spacious. The lanai was gorgeous, the beach and pool made a perfect stay! Jay was extremely helpful and very quick to reply to questions. I would definitely stay here again!
Jay's place was great for our 8 day trip! We came for a wedding and most other guests stayed at one of the resorts. We were looking for something more low key and this place was perfect. No reserving spots at the pool or beach in the early AM! We had one minor issue with a faucet and Jay took care of it as quickly as possible. He was very responsive and communication is key for us. It was our first Airbnb experience and we would 100% return to this place!
The condo was exactly as it is in the photos! Very comfy and had everything we needed. The beach chairs on the lanai were very much appreciated, not to mention the beautiful view! We ate breakfast at the table on the lanai most mornings as we watched the ocean waves. A short elevator ride down 3 flights and a few steps through the pool area and you're on the beach! The beach is surprisingly not too crowded most days, and we were lucky enough to spot 5 sea turtles just off shore on our last day there! The condo is very conveniently located with many shops, restaurants, beaches and fruit stands nearby. A short 10-15 minute drive and you're in Lahaina. Jay was very helpful and always responded super quick throughout the entire process. We would definitely recommend this condo to others and plan to stay here again! :)
It was a nice stay with magnificent oceanview from the lanai! The room was very relaxing and comfortable. Jay is very prompt in addressing your concerns, which is very much appreciated! This is where I would come back and stay if I visit Maui again.
Jay is extremely helpful and responsive! The place is very clean and has a great view. There is a tour concierge right at the lobby and easy access to a beautiful beach. Only con would be the funitures and deco are slightly old. Overall a nice to stay in!
Hey YeeWei, glad you had a good time in Maui.. All the furnishing in my condo is traditional Hawaiin furnishing.. They may appeared to be 'old' but it's definitely the look i am going for. The kitchen/ bathroom are all redone as well.. Hope you'll come back to Maui! Aloha, Jay
