Family Friendly Holidays in Maui - Holiday Lettings
“May never stay in a hotel again” Excellent ocean view. Good location, midway between major towns and popular beaches. Nothing is far away. No hassle rental process. Condo was full of amenities you would never have guessed a vacation rental would have. Very nice modern bathroom and kitchen. They thought of everything! Was literally like home away from home. Was quiet a peaceful everyday and night. Excellent beach short walk away. Watched small fish floating in the reef everyday. Restaurants/bars/shops within walking distant with great views. I am BBQ critic, and Beachbums restaurant had some of the best BBQ ribs I've ever tasted, and portions are huge. Because it was breezy everyday, we didn't have to use the air conditioner. We opened the front door and let the breeze blow through screen door. Free parking space is underground and out of the sun. Excellent rental. Hope to return soon.
“Perfect!!” This condo was perfect for our first stay on the islands! It was very comfortable and really felt like a home away from home! All of the amenities were nice and we made great use of them, especially the cooler and boogie boards. The location is perfect, right across from a beautiful beach and you can walk a block or two up or down the street and find places to shop and eat. The hospitality was amazing and the owners were very accomidating. We enjoyed ourselves so much and couldn't ask for a better place to stay. We will be back ever summer from here on out, and hope to stay in the same spot every time! I can honestly say that I have no complaints! Thank you so much! Mahalo!
“Lovely condo and wonderful vacation” My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary with a 2 week trip to Hawaii. We stayed at this lovely condo for the last 6 days of our 14 day stay. It was just as it was described and pictured in the website, very comfortable and a nice change after 8 days of hotels. There is a beautiful view and we ate many meals on the lanai. The owners provided lots of great suggestions and the wifi in the condo was great, so we could use our iPad to discover other local gems. The location on the west side of Maui is near many wonderful snorkeling sites, and snorkeling became our favorite outing of the trip. The beach towels and chairs also added to our comfort and enjoyment of the beaches.
“Our Second Visit, can't Wait for the Third!!!” This was our second visit to this wonderful condo in less than two years. For us, it is the best location to stay on the island. The condo had been updated with new furniture and appliances since our first visit, which was a real nice surprise. There are many amenities in and around the condo. The kitchen is very well stocked with dishes, utensils, etc. We just stopped by the grocery store on the way in from the airport for our food. We also took advantage of the many casual and finer dinning options, many within walking distance. There is a/C, but we never turned it on. The 2 ceiling fans were all we needed. The photos on this site are accurate, and we have been so pleased with this Maui Banyan condo, that we now want to go back twice a year, but unfortunately we can only go every year and a half or so. We have already planned for our next visit in 2013. Some people may like a resort, but for us, the comfort and cosy intimacy of your own place on Maui makes the visit there, so much more enjoyable and memorable.
“Awesome Rental!” We had a great time. Wished we could have stayed longer. Location is excellent. Walking distance to groceries, beach, park, souvenir markets, scooter rentals, etc. Very clean. Very spacious. Met owner and his family. So gracious. We would definitely stay here again.
“Great Condo, Awesome Location, Terrific Owner!” We rented Jean's 2 bedroom condo in Luana Kai and absolutely loved it! Jean was wonderful to work with, she was so attentive and answered all the questions I had without complaint. Everything described in her ad was as promised or better. When she said that she had all the little things we would need (ie: condiments, cooking spray, beach towels and chairs, coolers, etc...) that was an understatement! The only things you need to bring are your clothes, toiletries and food - every single other thing is there for your use. It's a good thing we arrived late and didn't have time to shop until the next day, as we would have bought a lot of things that Jean already had there. All of the appliances look new and the kitchen has been gorgeously renovated. Jean even thought about the lanai and how to get the best view of the ocean. She has a taller table and chairs outside (taller than the railing), so when you are sitting you can see the ocean perfectly! We so enjoyed looking at the water every morning and every night from that great vantage point. We spoke to a lot of people by the pool and some were not happy with their accommodations in other units. Either they were very dated, or they used the resort cleaning staff (Jean has her own cleaning person who is meticulous!), or their unit was not what was promised. That is not the case here at all, we could not have asked for more. Wanted to mention how great Kihei is too - lots of great stores, a fresh fruit/veggie market just down the road and all kinds of good restaurants if you want to eat out. Tip: Shop at Foodland (ask for their discount card), best prices on the island. We found the produce at Costco to be very disappointing and wished we had just shopped at Foodland in Kihei from the start. We have stayed in Kaanapali before and love Kihei so much more! Thanks Jean for sharing your condo with us, we have given your info to a few friends already and we will definitely be back!
“I'm so glad I found this site” I no longer have to search for hours looking for and still not sure what I'm going to get. I just get ahold of Rick give him my dates and they do the rest and I get the best.We stayed in 3 different condos of there's,all of which were perfect.Everything is in the kitchen you need.The only little thing is they dont have soap or shampoo so bring some or pick it up at store,thats always the first thing we do after check-in.We will have the pur water filter also,thats for anywhere you stay at least in Lahaina area.The ladies at check-in are the best,make you feel at home. If you want to spend more on the trip than for the trip without missing anything than there is no other place or people to look for.Rick and the gang are it.In fact I cant wait to call him and give him more dates and money.That's crazy but true.I tell people all the time and they cant't believe the prices.I always feel like I got some lifelong friend price and Rick assures me thats just how they roll around there.Again Thanks Rick, we'll be talking soon going back in July,Get our condo ready!I know excellent is easy but try it you'll be saying the same.
“great place” this condo looks exactly as shown in the pictures. it is furnished very cozy, with comfortable beds, nice quality furniture, a well stocked kitchen, beautiful bathrooms, three beautiful lanais. closet is stocked with umbrellas, chairs, fins, snorkels, boogie boards and coolers. the grounds are kept tropical and immaculate. the owners are professional and easy to deal with. kamaole III beach is a longer walk away, but it's a beautiful family friendly beach.
this is a good value for the money.
“Paradise Found!” My husband, daughter, boyfriend and myself just returned from spending 8 glorious days at this unit. From booking the reservation to checking out, Ryan (the owner) was extremely prompt in returning emails, answering questions and making sure we were informed about our stay. Upon stepping into the unit, we were thrilled to see that the photos on the website are exactly what the unit looks like. The view is direct oceanfront, literally 10 feet to the seawall and the ocean beyond. The condo itself is updated and has a very nice kitchen, bath and 1/2 bath, nice tile floors and great outdoor furniture on the lanai. The bedrooms are at the back of the house, but we could distinctly hear the waves crashing all night long; very relaxing way to fall asleep. The little extras like boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach chairs, umbrella, towels, cooler, etc. all helped to make beach days easy and affordable. The purified water system allowed us to refill our water containers each day and save money by not having to purchase bottled water. We spent most nights at the condo cooking dinner and watching the sunset. We also watched movies and listened to music on Ryan's awesome T.V. and sound system. The condo is tasteful, updated and comfortable - perfect for 4 people. With the 1/2 bath, there were 2 areas to get ready in which made having one shower doable. The location of this condo was perfect. We could go one direction and be in Napiili or the other and be in Kaanapali or Lahaina, all within 10-15 minutes. There are shops nearby within walking distance. My husband and I spent many mornings walking the beach walk located only a couple blocks from the condo. Maui Sands is an older complex and the pool, pool furniture and laundry facilities are quite outdated but the mature grounds and beautiful landscaping are awesome. Overall, this condo was exactly as described and in a perfect location. We'd love to rent it again in the future and I highly recommend this gem in Maui.
“Fantastic place, really close to the beach!!” Aloha! We had a great time at this condo! It is very close to the beach and made walking out for the sunsets really convenient! Everything you need for a relaxing time is here!! Views from the lanai are good!! Kihei is centrally located and made getting around the Island very easy! The concierge at Village By The Sea is very helpful and will get you some of the excursions for a discounted price...always nice!! The owner of this condo was very helpful and accommodating...can't thank him enough! We can't wait to come back!! Mahalo!!!
“Had everything we needed!” The 2bed/2bath condo in Maui Vista was lovely! The place was spotless, and the kitchen was organized and stocked with every kind of ware you might need for cooking, grilling, storing leftovers, etc. It seemed every time we needed something ("I could really use a paper towel, ziplock bag, tin foil, ice cream scoop,..."), we'd find it there! No need to constantly run to the store.
The location was perfect for us - across the street from a fantastic, uncrowded beach and about a mile away from what is, in our opinion, the best restaurant in Kihei (Cuatro).
If I have a chance to return to Maui, I'd absolutely book this place again!
“Wonderful well kept unit with a gorgeous view!” We stayed at Papakea Resort, Unit G-407 in October. My husband and I along with my older son had a great time in Maui. This unit is very close to the ocean front with a full view. We had drinks and many suppers on the Lani, watching the sunsets. G-407 is on the top floor.
It has a very nice loft with two single beds or one king bed, along with an additional bathroom which was handy. Nobody was fighting for the showers. The kitchen is fully supplied, with wonderful cutlery, pots, pans, dishes, wine glasses, coffee maker and many other things that most vacation rentals don't have. They also had body surf boards, umbrellas and beach towels. This unit was recommended to us by a friend. I would highly recommend it to anybody. We were in Maui for a wedding and everybody that came to our unit loved it. Upon arrival it was very clean. Parking is also convenient with an easy check in procedure.
This is where I am hopefully staying every time we come to Maui.
