Interaction with Guests
I live on Maui, on the north shore. I'm available for questions, but I will not be checking you in. This rental has a self check in policy with lock boxes.
Staying in the Ma'alaea neighborhood is all about experience the boat tours, and nearby aquarium and restaurants. There are deep sea fishing excursions, snorkel and sunset sails, and whale watching tours from Nov-April.
There is public transport, just a few min. walk from the condo. I also highly suggest renting a car at the airport, to fully be able to experience all of Maui! It's a large island!
This condo is located in a 4 level apartment building, please respect quiet hours of 9pm-8am, no talking on cell phone on patio as sound travels easily to neighbors. No pets, and smoking is prohibited as a Hawaii State law, smokers must be 20 feet from a building/restaurant/hotel, etc.
To avoid charging a cleaning fee, when checking out of the condo please strip the bedding, and place all used towels/linens in the laundry basket, load and run dishwasher of dirty dishes, and throw out the trash. Also turn off all lights, fans and the a/c unit to save on electricity. I greatly appreciate your help, thank you for staying and hope you had an awesome vacation!
Had a wonderful time in Maui. The condo was clean when we got there. It's a little dated but nice. Most of the items needed were available. There was no spatula however so I went ahead and bought one and left it for the next vacationers. There's a great restaurant and mini shopping villa within walking distance and a beautiful walking beach nearby. If you're looking for a place to stay and don't mind the dated decor, I would recommend this place.
My partner and I stayed at Nina's apartment for 3 nights, it was in a great location right by the beach and fairly close to the air port. If you are staying here I would highly recommend hiring a car as you are not really close to many shops. The bed was very comfy and Nina was very quick to reply to messages. The kitchen was perfect for us to store our food and drinks. We had a great time. Thanks Nina!!
Nina's place was just as we expected/needed. We were looking for affordable options in the area and the place worked out great. Easy access to the restaurants/general store and a tiny beach right by the complex. Very clear directions and easy to get to/park/etc. plus Nina checked in and was very helpful!
Our stay started a little rough, when the apartment had not been cleaned when we arrived at at 8 PM, due to the maid falling ill (and not informing the owner). Nina came down with new linen and cleaning supplies though, and she refunded us more than one day's stay for the trouble of cleaning the apartment ourselves.
The condo itself is a bit dated and worn, but has everything you need and is very airy and bright up there on the top floor, and the tradewinds were very noticeable in Ma'alaea for most of our stay, so we never had to use the A/C.
As others have noted, Ma'alaea is in a very central location on Maui; you have easy access to all parts of the island (well, except Hana :), and after staying in Kihei and Kahana, we appreciated being able to go almost anywhere within 30 minutes.
Overall the condo is a very good value!
Very nice well-managed complex in a great central location to Kihei, Lahaina, and Kahului. Also within walking to dive shop, craft booths, restaurants and ocean aquarium and Haycraft Beach State Park. Beautiful little beach and a nice, clean pool. This unit we rented is for sale and needs to be updated and thoroughly cleaned. For the price is was adequate.
