“What a wonderfully relaxing get-a-way!”
From the moment we arrived, we received such a warm welcome! Every detail thought of: a welcome basket of fruit, beautiful flowers in the room & all amenities you need in the condo. We loved this unit & thought it was really cozy. The balcony view was fantastic & we could not get enough of whale & turtle watching along with all the daily boat activities.
Response from the owner Aloha, It was our pleasure to have you as our guests. I am pleased that you have enjoyed your stay and were comfortable. Ma'alaea Village is such a special location and our visiting Humback Whales make it even more special. Thank you for taking time to write a review about our unit. I do hope to have you back on Paradie soon and as our guests. A Hui Hou! Nikta
Nikta is undoubtedly the smartest, most caring, and most generous host that you will ever experience. My wife and I have been hosted by Nikta for over ten years, generally returning to Maui every spring. Nikta's condo is beautiful and it has become our second home. The view from her lanai is wonderful --- sunrises that cannot be found elsewhere on the island, whale pairs resting close to shore, and a very long white sand beach nearby (about a block away) for your early morning walks. You generally will see whales, turtles, and, sometimes, even a seal as you walk along Sugar Beach. We would not want to stay anywhere else on the Island.
Response from the owner Dearest Roger & Barbara, I have to say undoubtedly you are so special and caring. It has been a treat having you visit us every year and it has a pleasure to have you as one of our special guests and now dear friends. I feel lucky that I have been able to meet so many of your family members throught the years and will alway look forward to having you back. Mahalo nui loa for writing this review. Much love & Aloha, Nikta
“Beautiful, comfortable retreat”
If you want a lovely, comfortable, quiet place on Maui this is it. Maalea is convenient, but off the major tourist track. The Banyon complex is small but beautifully maintained -- lawns, pool, spa, and view are all excellent. Nikta's condo is absolutely lovely, elegantly but comfortably furnished. Far better than the normal budget furnishings found in most units. One of the great joys of staying here are morning runs on the miles long Sugar Beach. This place has become our "home" whenever we visit Maui.
Response from the owner It has been such a pleasure to host you for all these years. I always look forward to your return to Paradise and stay in your "second home". Thank you for taking time to write this review. Aloha Nui Loa! Nikta
“Comfortable,well finished and equipped and in a perfect location”
This unit offered everything it was advertised to have and the bonus is an owner who adds a personal dimension to a place in paradise.
Response from the owner Dear Lowell & Elaine, It was our pleasure to have you stay in our "honeymoon" suite condo. I'm so glad I got to meet you in person and I look forward to your return back on Paradise! Thank you so much for taking time to write a review. Much appreciated, A Hui Hou! Aloha Nui Loa! Nikta
“We love Maalaea and Maalaea Banyans!”
We love Maalaea because it is away from the crowds but centrally located so nothing is very far away. This is our third or fourth stay at this unit in Maalaea Banyans and it now feels like our home away from home. Side note: working with the owner Nikta is a breeze. There's a little sandy beach just below your balcony and while we were there, it was visited every morning at high tide by several hungry honu (sea turtles) feeding on the limu on the rocks. We could see their little heads bobbing out of the water as we sipped our coffee. The unit is just the right size for two people and it has everything you need. It has a complete kitchen (including a dishwasher), washer/dryer, and even wi-fi if you simply can't be away from your email. The unit is beautifully renovated and super clean. In the evening, if you open the bedroom windows and the screen to the balcony, a nice breeze blows right through. There is a nice pool but we didn't use it much because the beach is right there. The surf is very mild so you can swim and snorkel. We saw many people paddle-boarding and snorkeling. There's a bigger sandy beach at the end of the road (you can walk there in 3-4 minutes). Since we visited in November we were almost alone on the beach. If your idea of Maui is quiet relaxation, we would highly recommend staying here. We will definitely go back. Oh Nikta also added a keypad lock so you don't need to carry keys when you go down to the pool or beach. This was really convenient.
Response from the owner As always it is our pleasure to have you & Diana back in your Maui getaway unit! Thank you for taking time to write this review. I appreciate your comments and looking forward to your return trip back to Paradise! Next time I hope Papa will be coming with you ;) Mahalo Nui Loa! Aloha Nikta
“Return visit to Maalaea Banyans”
What an amazing condo! It is a comfortable as it is beautiful. From the moment you walk in you feel like you must be visiting your very best friends...everything you need has been provided. Even tropical fruit, chocolates, and exotic flowers. The grounds are very well maintained and the barbecue area offers a splendid place for preparing dinner and watching the magnificent sunsets. The view from the balcony is mesmerizing. It often includes sea turtles, porpoises, and whales. You will never tire of sitting on the balcony. My only wish is that I could stay longer and come more often.
Response from the owner It was our pleasure to have you back for a second time for your special family reunion and the opportunity to meet your beautiful family members. I look forward to having you return on Paradise soon. Mahalo for taking time to write this review. It is much appreciated. A Hui Hou! Nikta
“Paradise away From Home”
My wife and I just finished about our 25th trip to the Islands and our stay in Maalaea Banyans #219 was, again, "perfect". Owner Nikta Houston is possibly the best person that you will ever deal with and her skill in making your vacation a memorable experience is unquestioned. Her beautiful unit is like a second home to us and it is maintained and decorated to perfection. You will be looking out, over carefully manicured grounds, at a gorgeous water view, complete with whale activity, sea turtles, and sunrises which I think are the best on the Island ( see two of my favorite pictures on the Trip advisor website). Walks along adjoining Sugar Beach are a daily event for us and beaches of this length (something like plus six miles in length) cannot be found very many places on the Island. Nikta, plus the condominium management team, will always go the extra mile for you--- what a wonderful five weeks we had with them. Thank You, Nikta, for the wonderful vacation that you were such a large part of. Roger and Barbara from Spokane, Washington.
