This condo building is in a fabulous location overlooking Ma'alaea Harbour. Nina provides enough basic equipment for self catering but there are some good restaurants in the harbour. It's right next to Maui Ocean centre and the launch berths for several whale watch and snorkel outfits.
Some of the furnishings and fittings are a bit worn and dated , there is also residual noise which I guess is pretty much the norm for this type of accommodation... But don't let this put you off. Remember location is everything and for Maui this is great value.
We had a great stay at Nina's condo. This is a very quiet community with easy 15 minute drives to most of the places you want to visit on Maui. The two local attractions within walking distance of the condo are the aquarium and Pacific Whale Foundation tours. The 80's style furnishing in this very clean condo are adequate since you will be spending your time out and about. The air conditioner is a nice bonus on those hot nights when you need to cool off. Our only complaint was that the bed needs a new mattress and the sheets were not very comfortable. Other than that if you are looking for a place to stay away from the resort areas, but still centrally located I would highly recommend this as an option.
My husband and I stayed here for our week-long Maui honeymoon, and greatly enjoyed ourselves! While not being particularly luxurious, the condo is wonderfully located and quite comfortable. You're getting what you pay for. Here are the things we took note of during our visit:
-The location is superb, in a quiet harbor on the South side of the island. It's a short walk to gorgeous Big Beach, and there are some restaurants and convenience stores nearby. A short drive to most everywhere else.
-Very clean, well-stocked with linens, dishes and supplies.
-Remarkably quiet and private, with friendly respectful neighbors.
-Easy check in/out (despite the obnoxious lock-box), and it was very easy to reach the host (Nina) with questions.
-A/C and cable, comfy King bed, peek-a-boo view of the harbor off the lanai.
-The shower has very low water pressure, and is built for someone 5'5" or shorter. The tall husband practically had to sponge bathe every morning.
-The DVD player has to be jerry-rigged to work by jamming a coaster under its cables, it freezes often, and the remote is missing its batteries.
-The fitted sheets and mattress pad don't fit the bed properly, so they pop off the corners the second you roll over (no fun waking up on a bare mattress every morning).
-Many kitchen supplies are half-broken (one dead stove burner, knife blades loose on handles, coffee pot lid missing latch, etc)
-The phone rang several times a day, every day. We were told they were likely sales calls, but it was disconcerting with it not being our condo.
Overall, the condo was more than worth the price, and if you're not looking for a fancy resort but a comfy little home for your visit, this is a great choice!
We had a great time at the condo. It was a great location central to many of the places we wanted to visit. The condo was clean and spacious and had everything we needed. We enjoyed utilizing the BBQ's that were available in the courtyard area. The pool was great, clean, and very inviting. All and all the trip was fantastic. The only thing that was a problem was as others had mentioned in their reviews. . . the crinkly mattress pad. It made it very hard to get much sleep with the noise that it generated.
There was a very nice steady breeze while we were there which made it quite nice as it kept us from over heating.
All in all I would recommend this condo to to others looking for vacation accommodations.

We had a great time at Nina's condo. The location was fantastic for us (close to our family in Maui and convenient to everything we wanted to go to). I will say that the pool is cold because it is in the shade for the morning so the water does not warm up naturally, but we ran into the building manager and she told us they are redoing the pool soon (and putting in a heater). Also, the shower head in the bathroom is fairly low (which was fine for us, we're shorter, but someone taller than say 5'8" or so may have difficulty). Otherwise the condo was great. Very quiet and relaxing with everything we needed for a nice stay. The laundry room is right next door to the unit, so very easy to do some laundry, but I couldn't hear the machines at all when they were in use (so they didn't bother us at all). Everyone we ran into in the building was very friendly.
I have already recommended this location to other family members and will hope to stay here again on future visits.
We stayed here from Sep 26-Oct 1, 2013. Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much.
The apartment is open and comfortable and is located in a quiet area. We enjoyed having the kitchen and cooking equipment available to prepare meals, and to be able to eat out on the balcony.
It is located in an area that has a small harbour and a few stores around it - quick drive to Kihei, Lahaina, Kahului and lots of beaches.
Nina was very responsive; we would stay here again.
Basic apartment for a reasonable price - the main criticism would be that there is no air con in the bedroom. Great location by the harbor - lots of trips leave from here. You get what you pay for - thanks for a lovely stay Nina!
Excellent stay on Maui. Directions to the location were great and we found it easy. Discovered the local general store for breakfast. The apartment is quite central for the island as a whole so all in all was an excellent choice. The building manager looked after our lost suitcase for us which American Airlines delivered whist we were out and that was an unexpected but very welcome bonus.
Great location, spacious and clean condo!
