Hiking & Walking Holiday Accommodation in Maui - Holiday Lettings
“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.
“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.
“The best condo on Kaanapali Beach” We just returned from a 7 night stay in Condo 802 at The Whaler. The condo and the amenities were everything I expected, and I was expecting the best . I looked at so many places in Maui before I booked 802. JaNell and Simon have provided so many amenities for their guests. The condo looks exactly like the photographs on their website, and it is in the most desirable location of Ka'anapali Beach. The beach has no rocks so it is easy to walk into the water to swim. It is right next to the Whalers Village shopping and restaurants, and close to other hotels for visits to their restaurants and bars. JaNell is very easy to contact, and very helpful. The views from this corner unit are gorgeous, and the Maui sunsets are spectacular. If I get the chance to go back to Maui again, I would definitely stay at JaNell and Simon's condo, but I would go when the whales are migrating because I am sure that I could see them from the lanai !!!
“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.
“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.
“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 Vacation Spot!” A big "thank you!" to Kristin for allowing my husband and I to stay in her vacation home for our Hawaii trip! It was absolutely perfect! I have told everyone who will listen to me brag about my experience about this condo. It was very easy working with Kristin making the arrangements, and her recommendations came in very handy since we had never been to the islands before. We had a perfect view from the balcony and the condo has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. If you are planning a trip to Maui, then I highly recommend this condo!
“A Vacation In Paradise” The description and photos of this rental unit and resort amenities are extremely accurate. Exceptionally clean and very well maintained, this property exceeded our expectations. We never tired of early morning coffees and watching the beautiful sunset in the evening from the lanai. Close to Dukes and Whaler's Village, there was never a shortage of good resteraunts and with the beach as our front yard, we enjoyed countless walks.
The owners, Jill and Terry are wonderful to work with and replied quickly to all e-mails -answering all questions very thoroughly. I recommend this property to others and I hope to return sometime soon
“A magical week!” Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had everything we needed, including beach chairs, boogie boards, and most of all, an incredible view. We saw turtles every day in the water and on the beach. We highly recommend barbequing at sunset for one of the most amazing meals you will ever have. The location is close enough to everything we wanted to do, but without being near the crowds. This was our first time staying in a condo/home and we would never stay in a resort again. We started and ended every day at the beach just below. We were not even close to being ready to leave. I strongly suggest staying more than one week. We look forward to returning and would gladly stay here again!
