Stayed early September 2016. The condo is a great location to get around island and had all amenities require including beach towels, 2 cool boxes, boogie boards. Also had water shoes and masks. We rented some for the week cause we wanted prescription masks and fins that fit. We used the recommended Tom Barefoot to book Pride of Maui to Molokini and turtle reef. The Barefoot booking got us a discount and I recommend the pride of Maui for those who might get seasick. They really took care of one of our party giving drinks of real ginger in seltzer water and getting her in the water before everyone else. The bedrooms were not private meaning that the two upstairs mezzanine bedrooms on the same level were either open to the front room or open to the downstairs bedroom. Fabulous view of the ocean right in front of the grass alongside the pool. Unfortunately our week was just after the rains that washed mud off the hillsides and the water didn't clear for the whole week. We even got to see surfers from our Lanai. Beautiful unused beach down the road from the condo great for walking along at sunset. We would stay at the condo again but I woul try and book at a time when it is not rainy season so we have the true benefit of the reef from our window.

We had a great time in Maui, and the condo was perfect! It was comfortable and had everything we needed to feel at home while on vacation. Also, I loved that the location was quiet and kind of tucked away, but also central to anywhere we wanted to go. Whether we wanted to sit on the lanai and watch turtles, or walk down to Sugar Beach and snorkel/play, or drive to Big Beach... or Kapalua (sometimes both in the same day, which also allowed us to stop in at the condo for snacks in between)... or run to Costco... everything was easy/not too far away! Even Hana and Haleakala, you can't get much closer for starting those adventures. It was everything we could have asked for.

We really had fun and can't wait to go back! Thank you again, for sharing your wonderful condo with us! :-)

Hi Joe and Karen,

We had a wonderful time at your "Condo in Paradise" during our recent vacation to Maui. The condo was very comfortable and perfectly furnished. We cooked in the condo, used the BBQ's downstairs, and went out a number of times to restaurants in Kihei, Lahaina, and Kula. We enjoyed coffee on the lanai every morning and wine in the afternoons. We also used the pool and hot tub and loved them both. The location of the condo (between Kihei and Lahaina) was great for us as we snorkeled out front and in nearby Kihei and also went to Lahaina for a number of activities. We loved having the marina nearby with Beach Bums and Hula Cookies and Ice Cream and would highly recommend the Aquarium to all visitors. In short, we enjoyed a perfect vacation.

Thank you so much for all your kindnesses - we appreciate all the good information and advice and the amazing hospitality you provided us.

Mahalo and Aloha for now,

John and Cathy George

Hi Joe and Karen,

We really enjoyed staying at your condominium. We understand how much you love Maui and your condo.
Unfortunately, it was too early to see whales but we spent a wonderful Christmas at your place.

The view from the condo was spectacular and we could see a beautiful full moon on Christmas Day. I really like the interior in the rooms. They are really nice, and I especially thought that the switch cover is very special.

For my mother, my sister and my younger daughter, it was their first time to go to Maui. I am sure they felt a big difference from Oahu and they love Maui.

I would like to recommend your condo to my friends, and I would love to go there again soon.

Kind regards,
Naomi

Thank you so much we couldnt have picked up a better location for our family.
The condo itself is fantastic. We really appreciated your promptness at answering our questions.
The beach at walking distance was lots of fun and relaxing at the same time. The condo area was quiet and calm. I appreciated the BBQ area where I could cook and enjoy a drink at night by the bay. We would love to return to your condo one day. We will highly recommend your condo to anyone we know. I agree with the comments of earlier users.

The condo is like Heaven on earth. The owners Karen and Joe Dorsey have done a wonderful job creating a great place to rest and recharge in Maui.

The Dorsey's commitement of excellence, makes staying at their condo such a great experience. I highly recommend to anyone to stay there, you will leave recharged and re-energized.

We stayed in 410 over New Years and had to best time! We stayed there with friends and family who we hadn't seen in a year and the condo made the perfect beautiful place to have that reunion. It is cozy and has the best view overlooking the south side of the island, including Haleakala and Molokini. The owners were great and kind to rent from, they are very giving and we are very thankful!

Thank you!

Joe and Karen,

Thank you for making our honeymoon experience so pleasant! Your condo is great and the view of the ocean is breathtaking. I joked to my wife that I could easily throw a golf ball from the balcony into the water! Very cozy condo with all that you could ask for in a vacation rental.

Our flight was cancelled for the first night of our honeymoon - imagine that! It was a big disappointment we had to miss one night of our honeymoon, but Joe graciously refunded our money for that first night. Who does that these days?

These are great people to rent from and we recommend them highly!!!!!

Thank you and bless you both.

Shirley and I arrived back from Hawaii on the weekend. We had a great vacation. The condo experience was excellent. Everyone we met was very congenial. Proximity to Ma'alea Harbor was a real bonus as we could just walk down to catch whatever water excursion we booked (four I think). We only tried the beach at the condo once (snorkeling) but used the state park beach two blocks away almost everyday. The pool and hot-hot tub were well used. Having a complete kitchen really helped as a few family members have food allergies that make eating out sometimes a challenge, The condo was very well equipped and at a great location to get around and enjoy all that Maui has to offer. We would not hesitate to recommend it to all our friends and acquaintances

Once again, Thank You

The condo was great. We didn't miss for anything. We loved making coffee in the morning and watching the sunrise. Most mornings my husband and I got up, made a cup of coffee, then went down to the beach to watch the turtles eat. There were usually 6 or 7 munching away every morning. It was awesome.

There were a couple days where there was no wind and the condo got a bit warm but the fans helped with that. The condo is close to the elevator and being a light sleeper I was concerned when I arrived. However - even though the condo is located near the elevator there was no issue with noise keeping me awake. The complex is pretty laid back and relaxed.

We hope to return to Maui and will certainly look to see if this condo is available. The condo location was great, made it easy to go anywhere. We did a couple boat trips so it was nice to walk to the marina. Took 10 minutes to walk. The road to Hana was an experience and the sights were great. We did several hikes around the island which we loved. There are a couple great restaurants near the condo that we walked to.

For future guest, some ideas on what to do: we did the 6:30am whale watching with the Pacific whale foundation (PCF) - it was outstanding. I know it seems early but it was worth it. The other boat trip was with the PWF as well, but it was a snorkel trip to Molokini and Lanai. The fish were amazing and the water was so clear. Highly recommend that trip.

Joe is amazing to work with and truly cares about his guests having a great time. Thank you for letting us use your condo during our stay. It was a great place to come home to at the end of the day.

Joe & Karen,

We had a great time in Maui, and were extremely satisfied with your condo. The central location of your "little grass hut" was great. It was awesome seeing whales from the condo balcony!!

You were very helpful and accommodating, and we greatly appreciate all you did to make our trip enjoyable. Also, thank you for the great tips both on your website, and that you sent prior to our leaving. These tips were extremely helpful.

My wife is already talking about another trip to Maui, but without the kids!!

Thanks again for all you did to make our vacation enjoyable and memorable!!

We LOVED our stay at the condo. The condo had everything we could have needed including beach towels. The kitchen was fully stocked, which was great for us staying in for many of our meals and we loved grilling out down by the pool and the ocean. The location is great, near the Ocean Center and near Maalaea Harbor, which is the location for our snorkel cruise's departure. Central enough to drive anywhere we wanted to as a day trip (though we didn't have as much time for stops on the road to Hana as if we'd stayed a night on the east side of the island). The beach accessible via the park just down the road provided hours of walking along the beach picking up tiny seashells and looking at tiny crabs.

Joe was a great host from afar - answering numerous questions and flexible when we didn't know our exact travel dates. Highly recommended!

Hi Joe and Karen - we had a wonderful time in Maui and really enjoyed staying in your little grass hut. If there was only a more comfortable and shorter plane ride we would love to go back more often. Loved how centrally located the condo was to all parts of the island. We would definitely contact you in the future should we head back to paradise! We have told everyone about what a spectacular place Maui is and about the condo, so we will give anyone that asks your information to contact you. Attached is a photo of our beautiful wedding day (taken on a cell phone, so not great quality, but one of our favorites). Until we meet again - Bill and Christi Scholz

We are back at home after a wonderful stay at your condo. We really liked the central location so we could explore the large island with minimal travel. Although some travel books criticize it, we really appreciated the breeze at Ma'alea. We are not used to humid weather, so getting back to the condo after traveling to other parts of the island was really refreshing. We spent much time on the balcony enjoying the fantastic view, watching the sea lion feeding just off-shore, etc. Thank you for sharing your place with us.
