Reviews
Miss it already
We stayed here for 11 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. The view from the lanai was outstanding and to wake up in the master bedroom and be able to hear the waves was a treat. We loved eating breakfast on the lanai - a great way to start the day. The condo was very well equipped, especially in the kitchen. We never had to compete for the laundry room, either. The beach was a short walk away and we also enjoyed three of the nearby restaurants. It was a short drive to other beaches - we especially liked one we found in Wailea. We were able to pick up a sunset dinner cruise at the Maalea harbour. We liked the location - less than half an hour from the airport, Lahaina and Wailea. The Iao Valley was a short drive away as well. We hope to return one day! Thank you, Vikky! You were very helpful when we were making our arrangements and in terms of our follow-up requests!

While staying at the condo I was able to enjoy the beachfront pool and the beach itself. The view from the balcony was beautiful and the condo itself is in a great location. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen was spacey enough to make a big meal. Overall it was very clean and there is also a new refrigerator. While I was there we mainly made dinner but we also went to a near by Mexican restaurant and the city of Lahaina for dinner. The customer service was very prompt and reliable. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend or to family. I am excited to go back as soon as possible!

Wonderful week at this Maalaea unit. Enjoyed watching the turtles every evening barbecuing on the beautiful grounds. Love that the unit is centrally located for our various trips around the island. Walking distance to harbor, aquarium, miniature golf and a few restaurants, yet still the feel of paradise. Beaches and grounds are not too overcrowded. Looking forward to booking our next stay!

THE ABSOLUTE BEST!
We had a terrific stay in this wonderful condo. The view is absolutely breathtaking. Everything you would ever need has been included and this makes for a hastle free vacation. The location is ideal and this makes it easy to get to other spots on the island. We loved using the bar b q and enjoyed some wonderful restaurants that are within walking distance. We definitely recommend this condo -- its beautiful, comfortable, and the owner is so nice to work with. We hope to return.

Memorable vacation in paradise
The condo is nicely maintained and was exactly as the pictures and description stated. We enjoyed everything about our stay at your condo.The view from the lanai was amazing; we watched the sea turtles and surfers everyday from the lanai. If you are planning to tour the island, the location of the condo is perfect. It is central to all the key spots. The condo is off the main road so it’s quiet, other than the soothing sounds of the ocean.Vikky is great to deal with, friendly, responsive, and no hassles. If the dates you are looking for are still open, book it now. It fills up fast, and for good reason. Thanks Vikky , the use of the condo helped made what was a great vacation awesome.

5 of 5 stars
This is our first vacation in Maalaea Kai and first time renting a vacation rental condo other than hotel. This unit owner replied quickly to our inquiry sent all the additional information a fist time visitor should know and addressed all our rental needs. Vikky is the only owner willing to work with our budget and gave a best rate for our stay. We had a great stay and if we ever get a chance we will sure stay in this unit again. Thanks Vikky.
