"With the magnificent Pacific views and elegant Maui condos along the beach, our stay here was magical."
“STAY HERE if you go to Maui”
We recently stayed in #1604, a 2 bd 2 shower beachfront upper floor condo with renovated kitchen and loved the view of the "point". The kitchen was well equipped with good dishes, flatware, glasses, utensils etc. We spoke to Destination Resorts about one scratched and slightly warped frying pan and a new replacement arrived immediately.
Although the nearby restaurants prepare superb breakfasts I wanted to cook up some pancakes using a macadamia nut mix from the ABC Store. Next visit I'll just eat the fancy pancakes out because the mix was not even close.
This unit is close to the older small pool which surprisingly we liked better than the larger new pool by the beach. The smaller pool is warm and very relaxing, and not crowded. The new pool had screaming children doing cannonballs during the 4 to 6 PM "quiet time". If you bring children they will have more fun when the other kids are there, but if you prefer serenity, try using the beach pool early in the morning.
The north side of the beach has fewer and smaller waves than the south end, so it is popular with snorklers and divers. The south end was used by boogie boarders and a rare surfer. The covered beach chairs on the point are gated with a security code, and it's a great place to read a book or look for whales.
The grounds are very well maintained with an abundance of flowers and tropical plants. The condo is a 1 minute drive to the Shops at Wailea, which was also fun to explore. We were crazy about the condo we got, and did not hear any noise from the Andaz hotel construction or the street. The sunsets are beautiful. My advice is STAY HERE if you can.
