“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 Maui Sands is an older complex and the pool, pool furniture and laundry facilities are quite outdated but the mature grounds and beautiful landscaping are awesome.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.
“best stay in Maui” The cottage is between 7 pools and Hana. It's great- private full views of the ocean and every thing you need to have a fun restful stay. Chuck wants everyone to have a good stay and will fill you in on where to shop for great food and fun places to visit. It might seem too far out, but a week is almost a minimum. The back porch is terrific. pictures don't do it justice. We'll be back
“Perfect in every way for our first trip to Hawaii !!!” We stayed at "The Cottage" March 31-April 8th to celebrate 35 years of marriage, 2 retirements, and a birthday and it was perfect in every way! We knew as we drove down the citrus and flower-lined drive to the sign pointing our way to the cottage that we had found Paradise! But only for 8 nights!!
When planning a vacation and where we will stay, we look at location, cleanliness, views, amenities, and price. The cottage was near grocery stores, beaches, towns, and the best restaurant on Maui, "Mama's Fish House". The cottage was spotless and we could have eaten off of the floors inside and also outside on the lanai (deck). It was amazingly clean! The views of the water, mountains, pastures, flowers, fruits, sunrises and sunsets were unbelievable. We loved sitting on the lanai and also inside we could enjoy the views. The personal touches from our perfect hosts were something that did not go unnoticed or unappreciated. After booking, Barbara sent us a highlighted map and typed directions to help us get from the airport to the cottage. There was a magazine rack full of guidebooks to help us plan our days. Barbara had typed directions to grocery stores with comments about what they sold. The Welcome Basket was beautiful and delicious and I loved the fresh flowers on the soap and candy dishes! Hank had also left tools under the the sink, if needed, and they had laundry detergent for us to use on the front-load washer and dryer. There is so much more I could say about how wonderful our visit to the cottage was...Paradise is just the best way. My husband said we would go back next year for 2 weeks! I can't wait! Aloha Ya'll!
“Perfect!” Our stay in your condo at Kihei was absolutely great. Wonderful porch, beautifully decorated, comfortable, and convenient. Who could ask for more. So close to the beach and restaurants - a perfect place. Thank you for letting our family share it. I cannot think of a thing we didn't have!
“Convenient and affordable” This condo was ideally arranged for feeding a family a meal or two each day to keep down costs. The condo had all the basic necessities plus other helpful items like kick boards, chairs, beach towels, and snorkels-masks. Being able to park right out front meant we were in the van on on the beach without wasting much time. It was also great to be able to do laundry, so that we could pack light. The condo was clean and well-maintained. The park across the street was a great place for watching the sunset. Great coffee and a farmers markets steps away also was a real treat.
“Excelent value” Excellent value

We had an absolutely wonderful time at this three bedroom condo at the Kamaole Beach Royale. It was such a nice experience, being close to the beach and having the barbeque area on the 7th floor. We had 14 members of our family at one point and it was a very nice location to have a family get together. The suite was very spacious with comfortable beds and insuite laundry. We would certainly stay there again.
Recommended for:People with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, adventure seekers, sightseeing, families with young children, age 55+.
“Magical Maui” Tracy's Tropical Treasure was our home away from home. She has provided everything in this unit that you could ever want, even things we didn't know we would need. It was clean, bright and cheery and most of all, convenient to not only the beach right across the street, but also to the restaurants and shops in Kihei. The pool and hot tub were never crowded and having the barbecues closeby, made cooking those steaks just a few steps from the front door.
“The most amazing trip!!!” We stayed in 401 and absolutely loved every minute. The views were awesome from the living room and bedroom! The beach was wonderful, it wasn't crowded and there were free beach chairs. Great location and friendly people everywhere! We will be going back and this is the only place we will stay!!
