The condo was wonderful! It looks exactly like it does in the pictures, but they just don't give the view, the ocean breeze, the constant rolling of the island waves, and the comfort level of the bed justice. The location was perfect, away from all the hustle and bustle of Lahaina and north enough so we were closer to the more "offbeat" sights including Napili Bay, Dragon's Teeth, and the gorgeous (and almost scary) north shore drive with all it's stunning hidden gems. We had everything we needed in the condo for our stay including more than enough storage for 2 people, a roomy regular-sized fridge, working washer and dryer, pool noodles that we took down to the beach to be lazy on, and sorry but I seriously couldn't get enough of that view.. We were able to stargaze at night and watch the whales (Feb 2015) from sunrise til sunset all from the balcony!! :) Carol was a great host, one of the best we've had. She was available via airbnb messaging the whole time and was always super nice and informative with lots of aloha sprinkled on top! Mahalo for everything Carol, we will be back again one day.. A hui hou!!
Carol is great to work with & extremely helpful! Two thumbs up all the way!
The room and view are just as advertised and more! Carol made me feel right at home and a part of the family. When I mentioned that I was disappointed I didn't see any sea turtles on my snorkeling trip, she took me out to a turtle cleaning station the morning before my flight to fulfill that wish. I had a wonderful stay!
Very clean and modern space. Smooth check in/out. A+
The pictures in the advertisement were taken in a different unit than the one provided to my wife and I for our visit; the unit we stayed in was quite nice though so no problem there.
Slight annoyance: our airbnb was not ready for us until 4:15, we were told it would be ready by 3:00.
Takeaway: the condo we stayed in was very nice, but there were several small inconveniences throughout the process of renting that I attribute to this being an airbnb arrangement, and not a professional hotel company. I would rent from Carol again, and would recommend any friends or family do the same.
Overall, experience was really good. The image listed in the review looking down on the pool isn't exactly where the unit is, it's a bit further back, but you still get a view of the ocean. Unit was relatively clean with some mildew in the bathroom. Bathtub floor also had a substantial amount of water underneath the surface, but Carol was quick to offer options. Speaking of which, Carol was really great about all communication throughout the trip. Great to deal with! Considering the price and location, I'd make a return trip here.
This rental was absolutely perfect for our week in Lahaina. It's 3 blocks walking distance to basically anything and everything! Loved everything about this rental. Parking did come at $20 a day, but we knew that in advance and loved having direct parking lot access from our ground floor unit. I would highly recommend this apartment to any of my friends or coworkers heading to Maui for a vacation!
The Aina Nalu resort was fantastic! Our condo was even better than we'd hoped. This is a great place to stay for a Maui vacation. We loved how close we were to Front St. and Baby beach. We were able to walk to restaurants and the harbor very quickly. The condo was very well set up for four people. We appreciated having two bathrooms and laundry available. We would definately stay here again in the future.
Carols friend Juliet actually stayed at our place and she was really a great guest. Very quiet, clean, considerate, and sweet. We didn't get a lot of time to visit as we were both going full spreed, but I would recommend her anytime and would welcome her back!
