Aloha from Maui

I would like to begin by providing you with the latest Hawaii COVID-19 INFO.:

As I'm sure you are aware, the recent issues with Covid-19 have been developing day by day.

Hawaii continues to lead the country with the lowest numbers of COVID-19 cases (per capita), the lowest number of hospitalizations due to COVID-19 (per capita), and the lowest number of deaths due to COVID-19 (per capita).

Due to Hawaii's vulnerability as isolated islands with limited medical reources, our state is taking a cautious approach to reopening. With COVID-19 still so active and uncontrolled in mainland U.S. states and other countries, Hawaii has made public health and safety the top priority. We are excited about reopening to the world. We are excited to get back to work. We are excited to welcome our visitors again! But we need to do it carefully in order to minimize the risks. We need to keep our residents and visitor industry workers safe from potential infection and make sure the islands continue to be a safe destination for you, our visitors. You can help us when you're here by following recommended protocols such as social distancing, hand washing, and wearing a mask in public places (currently required in Maui unless you are exercising at beaches and parks or you are in the ocean or pool). With your kokua (cooperation), we can help keep Hawaii safe for everyone.

Before considering traveling to Maui please check the Hawaii State Department of Transportation's website and/or the sites listed below for the latest news regarding travel. Recommendations for visitors and residents are frequently being updated.

We take your health and safety very seriously and have put systems in place to keep our guests as safe as possible.

Hawaii implemented a pre-travel testing program that allows us to welcome visitors to the islands without quarantine if the current Hawaii requirements are met .

Arriving travelers who have a valid, negative COVID 19 test uploaded to the Safe Travels System and travelers who quickly download the AlohaSafe Alert App on their phone PRIOR to arriving into Hawaii will be EXEMPT from the 10-day quarantine. This means that if all travelers in your party (age 5 and older) are willing to get the test and have their negative results, travelers will be allowed to stay in this vacation rental condo and travelers will not need to quarantine.

On 01/15/2021, Governor Ige approved the Mandatory ContactTracing Requirement for all travelers from both the mainland and interisland to Maui. We have more details on when that starts and how it will work below.

New Contact Tracing Rules Start 1/19/2021 For Maui....

The latest emergency rules read as follows. “All travelers into Maui County, whether interisland or transpacific, who wish to avoid quarantine by pre-testing within the State’s Safe Travels Program, must additionally download either the AlohaSafe Alert application or another Google-Apple Exposure Notification System application, or enable their exposure notification setting on their mobile device. Proof of registration, such as showing airport screeners or any law enforcement officer, the application installed or setting enabled on a traveler’s mobile device, is required. Failure to register with an exposure notification system BEFORE arrival into Maui County shall result in mandatory quarantine, except for any individual under the age of 18 or who does not possess a mobile device. Only for those who do not possess a mobile device, at least one individual in their traveling party will be required to comply.”

Tip: You must quickly download the AlohaSafe Alert App on your phone BEFORE departing for Maui. If you do it on arrival, it’s too late.

ALL Out-of-state travelers arriving into the state of Hawaii must get a NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test) no more than 72 hours prior to their final leg of departure from any testing location approved by the Hawaii State Department of Health. Evidence of a negative test result must be provided before their departure into the state of Hawaii. Without this, all passengers arriving from out-of-state will be subject to the 10 day quarantine. NO TESTING WILL BE PROVIDED UPON ARRIVAL AT THE AIRPORT. The Department of Health requires an FDA-approved NAAT test from a certified CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment) lab. A list of approved labs can be found on the websites below.

All travelers will be required to upload evidence before their departure into the state of Hawaii by following the directions listed below. If possible, it is recommended that travelers also have printed or emailed pre test certification as evidence of a negative NAAT test result just as a backup.

Travelers will be responsible for the cost of their pre-travel test.

If travelers do not have their pre travel COVID results available before boarding the flight, travelers will need to remain in quarantine for 10 days (or their length of stay if shorter).

Travelers who choose NOT to get the pre-travel COVID test prior to traveling will also automatically be subject to the mandatory 10-day quarantine that has been in effect in Hawaii since March, 2020. The quarantine requires that all travelers stay INSIDE their HOTEL ROOM for the entire 10 days. Quarantined travelers are not allowed to rent vacation rental condos (they can only stay in hotels/resorts for quarantining purposes if pre travel covid tests were not taken before arriving into the state of Hawaii) or if results were not received in time. Quarantined travelers are also not allowed to rent a car, go grocery shopping, go to restaurants, go to the beach or hotel pool, or do anything outside of their hotel room. The quarantine is strictly enforced with hefty fines and/or arrest for those who violate the laws.

Hawaii is partnering with numerous testing partners, offering thousands of locations across the U.S. Examples can be found on the Testing Partner List on the websites listed below. There are also some airlines that are now participating and may be offering Covid tests at the airport prior to your departure. Please ensure they are on the preferred list of Hawaii Testing Partners.

***One of the BEST WEBSITES to go to for up to date State of Hawaii Covid-19 Travel Requirements and Other Important Information is HawaiiCovid19. Scroll down and kindly click on the "Safe Travels" link. This site is also where you will find a complete list of Hawaii’s current “Trusted Testing and Travel Partners”. :)

In addition, the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau site at GoHawaii is also a great place for reliable updates and details.

Kindly look under "Special Alerts/Notices" on the GoHawaii site.

Travelers can also check the Hawaiʻi State Department of Transportation’s website for the latest news regarding travel.

Recommendations for visitors and residents are frequently being updated, so please check information regularly.

By booking this condo, you are confirming that you understand that ALL travelers in your party (age 5 and older) will take an accepted COVID Test (administered within 72 hours from your final leg of departure into the state of Hawaii). You are also confirming that you understand that you must have your negative results in time in order to avoid the 10 day quarantine in a hotel or resort.

To avoid quarantine when travelling to Hawaii, guests must:
1 Set up a Safe Travels Hawaii account for each travelling adult at travel (dot) hawaii (dot) gov
2 Take the right type of COVID test at a participating location within 72-hours of the last leg of your flight into Hawaii
**3 Complete the online Travel Health Questionnaire on Safe Travels within 24 hours of your flight departure to receive a personalized QR code plus you must also download the AlohaSafe Alert App on your phone BEFORE departing for Maui. If you do it upon arrival, it’s too late and you will be subject to quarantine.
4 Display the Safe Travels QR code and negative test result plus download the AlohaSafe Alert App on your phone PRIOR to boarding the plane
5. Complete the final screening process upon arrival into Hawaii by showing the personalized QR code, negative test results, AlohaSafe Alert App, government ID, etc. Arriving passengers will also undergo thermal screening to check temperatures to ensure they are lower than 100.4 degrees.
6 Enjoy Aloha!

Important:
All guests traveling to Hawaii are required to complete the Hawaii Safe Travels form and have a personalized QR code to present, regardless of the intent to complete a pre-arrival COVID testing process.

If a negative test is not uploaded or manually verified prior to departure, guests will be required to quarantine in a hotel or resort for 10 days upon arrival or the length of their stay, (whichever is shorter).

See Hawaii entry requirements.

Plan ahead and be prepared for your whole travel party. These are unique travel times and we genuinely want you to enjoy and relax and be as stress free as possible once you arrive into Maui for your well deserved beach vacation!

Please research the Hawaii 10 day mandatory quarantine and the Hawaii pre-travel testing program so you are aware of the parameters as details may be subject to change.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ OUR REVIEWS FOR THE PROOF.....

COVID-19 Cleaning Precautions: Please know that we have enhanced both our cleaning routine and our cleaning methods to offer extra protection for our arriving guests. Due to the coronavirus, we’re taking extra care to not only clean but to also disinfect frequently touched surfaces and frequently touched household items between each reservation. We have allotted extra time and extra cleaners to complete these tasks to lower the risk of infection. We are using cleaning products and household disinfectants that are recommended as being effective against the coronavirus. We are also paying special attention to frequently touched surfaces like keyless entry pads, light switches, doorknobs, remote controls, microwave buttons, faucets, toilets, and kitchen appliance handles.

~ RESORT LIKE AMENITIES include a high powered air conditioning system, keyless entry, twin robes, triple sheeting with very soft and luxurious custom bedding, Cariloha Resort 100% bamboo bed sheets: $259 sheets, 1200 thread count designer duvet cover, a super comfortable, ultra plush, king sized pillow top mattress (almost every single one of my guests say this bed is the BEST BED they have ever slept on!), 100% bed bug protection, pollen protection, and dust mite protection through very expensive and advanced zippered allergen barrier mattress and box spring fabric encasements that are also 100% pesticide and chemical free, and tons of fluffy and fresh down filled pillows. The condo is also equipped with TWO flat screen TVs (50” Smart TV with video streaming capabilities and a 32"), plus high speed wireless internet. In addition, you will find two DVD players (including Blu-ray, Netflix, Hulu, and other Video Streaming), over 150 awesome DVD movies (all genre types, including tons of new releases), a Boston AM/FM Acoustic Stereo System with optional Ipod hookup (including the IPod cord), Cable TV with 80 channels, a private, full-sized wet bar done in sparkly granite, under cabinet lighting, glass blocks in the bar area which include rainbow, twinkling LED lights you can turn on or off as needed, plus romantic mood lighting in the bed area above all crown molding. There is also a slate covered lanai with a view perfectly centered on the ocean, a Playstation 2 with over 25 fun games, a Sharper Image Sound Soother Machine, an Espresso Machine, a Brita Water Filtration System, and even a built in Digital Safe that lets you choose your own code.

~ On-site, you will also find a large collection of informative Maui books, an assortment of interesting Maui magazines, several creative & fun card and board games, and a very special and popular Hana Road Tour CD for your vehicle that you can help yourself to during your vacation.

~ For your convenience, there is also a very affordable coin operated laundromat on site with 20 full-size machines.

~ We also provide plenty of fluffy, soft, oversized bathroom and beach towels, hand towels, and wash cloths. You will also find beach chairs, a beach umbrella, coolers (one large, one small), tennis rackets, tennis balls, a glow in the dark Bocce Ball Set, a beach paddle ball set, yoga mats, binoculars, a luggage rack, an iron/ironing board, a magnifying vanity mirror that lights up, a hair dryer, a fully stocked First Aid Kit, back and neck heating pads with aromatherapy, and even an insulated, custom picnic basket (complete with a cutting board, cheese knife, corkscrew, and special compartment for a bottle of champagne or wine). We also supply a Sewing Kit, a Tool Kit, batteries, light bulbs, and plenty of cleaning products.

~ We happily stock AMPLE dish soap, garbage bags, sponges, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, Qtips, cotton balls, coffee filters, tea, and hand soap. In addition, we provide "starter kit" supplies in the bathroom and the main kitchen. Upon arrival, you will find 2 fresh rolls of toilet paper and 1 fresh roll of paper towels for the kitchen. This will be enough to get you "started". Our goal by providing "starter kits" for household paper products is to prevent the necessity for you to have to shop for these items during your first couple of days in paradise; after all, you are on vacation. There is also a "Pay It Forward" shelf where guests are welcome to leave their unused, non-perishable grocery items.

The premier location, coupled with the over abundance of amenities we provide, will hopefully make Tracy's Tropical Treasure the TOP CHOICE for your Maui Vacation! Most of our guests have commented in the Home Journal that the condo was better than staying in a five star hotel or luxury resort! In fact, one guest even said that their room at the Four Seasons in Wailea paled in comparison to Tracy's Tropical Treasure.

~ I absolutely hate checking into a new place that is not already stocked with supplies, don't you? That will never happen if you stay at Tracy's Tropical Treasure. SAVE TIME AND MONEY BY BOOKING NOW....

~ I just can't understand why anyone would want to pay triple the price to stay in a cramped hotel room without the convenience of a full kitchen. Did you know that almost all hotel rooms in Maui are under 300 square feet?

~ Also, with our 600 square foot place, on-site parking, unlimited AC, cable TV, an in room safe where you choose the code, the 14.42% mandatory Hawaii State Tax, and unlimited WIFI have already been conveniently factored into your daily rate. There will never be any last minute surprises! Don't you just hate that, I know I do. In Maui, unexpected fees can add up fast, especially when most places charge $25 per day for parking plus additional (hidden) resort fees, and even daily fees for WIFI and the use of the in room safe. Give me a break!

~ My fees are totally upfront: the mandatory accommodation tax in the state of Hawaii of 14.42% that everyone (no matter where you book) has to pay has already been included in my daily price. That just leaves a departure cleaning fee of $145 plus Airbnb charges a small service fee (roughly 9%) for using their site. That's it!

~ Don't take chances, I've got the place you've been searching for at the BEST POSSIBLE PRICE WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF HASSLE. THIS IS IT, FOLKS!

~ Still not convinced....

~ The BEACH, a nice PARK, and Maui's only WHALE EDUCATION CENTER, complete with viewing telescopes, are directly across the street (IN LESS THAN 150 STEPS FROM YOUR FRONT DOOR, YOU CAN NOT ONLY BE AT THE BEACH, BUT YOU CAN ACTUALLY BE IN THE OCEAN). How cool is that?

~ In less than 30 steps, you will find the pool with restrooms, an extra large, outdoor jacuzzi, a barbecue area with picnic tables, an outdoor shower area, tennis courts, and tropical, lush courtyards bearing fruit trees that offer TOTALLY FREE limes, bananas, avocados, and papayas.

~ Once a regular destination for Hawaiian royalty, Kihei is home to some incredible views and six miles of stunning beaches. It is a known fact that sunny Kihei has the best climate in Maui – warm weather year-round with the lowest precipitation on the Island! In addition, Kihei is known as the pivoting point to all Maui activities. With six miles of sun-kissed beaches, it's no secret why Kihei has boomed into the island's largest tourist destination.

~ This condo is situated in a perfectly central location. It is within easy walking distance (less than 2 miles) to EVERYTHING: shops, restaurants, beaches, public parks, grocery stores, gas stations, kayaking, surfing, snorkeling, wind surfing, fishing, the "Triangle Night Life", medical facilities: you name it! It's all literally around the corner. In addition, you are just minutes away from Wailea, and only 10 miles from the airport in Kahului. For your convenience, there is also a bus stop within 100 feet from the front door.

~ You will be DIRECTLY ACROSS THE STREET from one of the most popular wind surfing beaches in all of Maui, and you will have a DIRECT OCEAN VIEW from the lanai, living room, dining area, kitchen, and sleeping quarters. It's truly a picture perfect, romantic setting which is conveniently located near the FRONT END of the property. Please note the unit does parallel the road, so there is a bit of road noise; however, I have added a Sharper Image Sound Soother Machine that features 20 digital, calming sounds to help you experience maximum relaxation throughout your stay).

~ Did I mention that during whale season, you can actually watch the whales breach from both the comfort of your bed or while enjoying a meal on your lanai? I can assure you that this isn't a "peek a boo" ocean view: this unit arguably has the best ocean view in the entire complex (see photo).

~ Your fully equipped, heavily stocked, ULTRA FABULOUS GOURMET KITCHEN FIT FOR A CHEF includes full size appliances, maple cabinetry, under cabinet lighting, and beautiful granite that sparkles in the Maui sun. There is also a microwave, plenty of cookware, a coffee maker, a coffee bean grinder, a blender, a toaster, a rice maker, an espresso machine, the Nutri Bullet blender, Henkel knives, a variety of BBQ accessories, and even a toaster oven. In addition, basic supplies like Olive Oil, Pam, an assortment of hot teas, salt, pepper, approximately 20 other spices, aluminum foil, saran wrap, coffee filters, and miscellaneous baking ingredients can all be found on site.

~ The custom designed BATHROOM features beautifully tiled walls, and a perfectly polished river rock floor. We were definitely going for a "Peaceful and Serene Spa Experience" when designing the bathroom. This bathroom is guaranteed to delight all of your senses!

~ The private, slate tiled LANAI boasts a breathtaking ocean view where you can watch graceful whales play, the kite surfers dance, and catch the most fabulous, panoramic sunsets and vibrant, rainbow-striped skies. It is truly postcard material! The lanai is equipped with a teak table, two super comfy, oversized chairs, and two ottomans: perfect for resting, reading, and/or outdoor dining. In addition, you are less than two blocks away from the world famous Sugar Beach – the only FIVE-MILE BEACH WALK in all of Maui!

~ Lots of personal and professional touches have been used as well to enhance the Island atmosphere and we have even proudly partnered up with a local vendor offering Maui activities, adventures, and experiences at incredibly low and affordable prices, saving our guests even more money. Kevin’s personal contact information will be shared once your reservation is confirmed. He offers highly discounted rates for all of our guests on Luaus, Molokini Snorkeling, Helicopter Tours, Whale Watching, Zip-lining, Parasailing, Jet Skiing, Dolphin Snorkeling, Dinner Cruises, Horseback Riding, Raft Trips, etc. ;)

~ Isn't it about time to experience the true feeling of peaceful Hawaii? WELL, THIS IS IT, FOLKS!!!

~ At these bargain rates, days are going to go fast, so please don't wait to pay. Check the calendar and if it's open, please pay right away…that way you are guaranteed your dates. The first one to pay secures the dates, so don't delay, as we experience multiple emails each day.

~ If you have any questions, feel free to email me anytime. I will answer all questions within 24 hours - GUARANTEED!

~ Sorry, but no smoking allowed INSIDE the condo or on the lanai.

~ ALSO, THIS SPACE IS LIMITED TO NO MORE THAN TWO PEOPLE. Sorry, this is a condo association rule, and unfortunately, we cannot make any exceptions.

~ Oh yeah, parking is right on-site and totally free!

~ After booking, always remember to consult your local insurance provider about the benefits of travel insurance.

~ As a special bonus, daily maid service and/or mid stay cleans are available for an additional fee. All information is conveniently displayed inside the condo.

~ THE TROPICAL VIBRATIONS & MAGIC OF MAUI AWAIT YOU...

~ If you are traveling with a group, it may be possible to book all 4 of my units in the same complex at the same time. They are all within 100 footsteps, and Tracy's Tropical Treasure #3 is just two doors away. :)

~ I am looking forward to speaking with you and sharing my ALOHA spirit. Thank you for taking the time to read my lengthy property description!

~ Mahalo nui loa! Malama pono!

Location

Kihei, Hawaii, United States

Maui has been voted the "Best Island in the World" for over 23 years. With daytime temperatures ranging from roughly 85 degrees F during the winter, it's easy to see why Maui is such a popular destination choice and the #1 island in the world.

Here’s why I think the South side of the island (where Kihei is located) is the best place to stay. South Maui really has it all! ;)

The sunny South shores of Kihei offer 6 miles of popular, sun kissed beaches with warm, balmy days and cool, tropical nights.

Typically, humidity levels in Kihei are VERY LOW and the annual rainfall in Kihei is LESS than anywhere else on island. :)

Kihei is a sizable beach town with plenty of places to eat and fun things to do. Kihei is definitely the hub for Maui surf lessons and is considered the true pivoting point for all of Maui’s popular outdoor activities.

Most of the accommodation options in Kihei will be condos with full kitchens (enabling you to save even more money if you choose to cook a couple meals at home).

Kihei is definitely less crowded and more affordable than the West side.

The beaches in Kihei are more plentiful, also less crowded, and quite a bit more accessible than those on the West side. You will definitely find more parking and better marked beaches in South Maui. In addition, most of the beaches in Kihei can be seen right from the road and Kihei offers totally free parking unlike the West side. ;)

Kihei is closer to Haleakala (hiking), the road to Hana, Iao Valley, and the airport than the West side.

Kihei is more private, intimate, and affordable than the West side.

Kihei is also closer to Paia, Makawao, Upcountry, Kahului, and Maalaea than the West side.

Kihei has the least amount of rain of anywhere on Island and is more laid back. It is not only drier but it is also sunnier. ;)

Kihei Boat Ramp is only a couple of miles from the condo. There are numerous snorkel and dive excursions that launch from this popular boat ramp every single morning offering options that include exploring the coral reefs at Molokini or swimming with the turtles at Turtle Town.

The only beach in Maui that used to be reserved for Hawaiian Royalty is directly across the street from the condo (less than 150 footsteps from your front door). It is a very popular beach for canoeing, kite surfing, viewing sea turtles and whales, or simply basking in the sun. Picnic tables, grilling areas, free parking, and outdoor showers are all available at the beach across the street. Do as much as you want or as little as you desire. ;)


~ The National Humpback Museum and Whale Education Center for Maui is just steps away (directly across the street from the condo). They offer free educational classes and plenty of free, outdoor telescopes so you can get an up close and personal view of the Humpback Whales swimming and jumping in the ocean just in front of the museum.

The longest beach walk in all of Maui is in Kihei (within 2 blocks from the condo).

Within a few miles from the condo you will also discover additional white sand beaches, fun ocean activities, several parks, loads of restaurants, groceries, shopping, banks, ATM machines, live entertainment, skate parks, basketball, tennis, and volleyball courts, surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, diving, yoga centers, the Kihei Town Shopping Center, the Kihei Boat Ramp, Farmer’s Markets, dance clubs, live music, nightclubs/bars, Craft Fairs, and even several open-air Maui Marketplaces.

Hop in the car at the condo for a very short drive (less than six miles) to three, world class, championship golf courses as well as the popular and breathtaking Wailea resort area offering upscale shopping, incredible sightseeing, and romantic dining options.

Higher end resorts like Four Seasons, Andaz, Grand Wailea, and Kealani are all in Wailea which is just 5 miles South of Kihei. Wailea also has an award winning spa at the Grand Wailea (best spa in Maui).

Wailea is a resort community just south of Kihei that includes several mega beachfront resorts, some nice condo complexes, world class restaurants, and an upscale outdoor mall. The whole area is extremely lush and artistically manicured and looks just like the Hawaii of your dreams. When I’ve driven people down to Wailea after seeing other parts of the island, they’ve said “now THIS is truly PARADISE and what I envisioned all of Maui to look like.” To me, Wailea is the epitome of luxury. ;)

The Shops at Wailea is the nicest shopping center in Maui and it is only 5 miles away from the condo (very upscale).

A few more miles South in the car and you will discover the world renowned Makena area, where many famous people choose to reside.

Lahaina and Ka’anapali (West side) are a one hour drive from the main airport, and Kihei is only 15 minutes. In addition, the condo is only 9 miles away from the main airport in Kahului. ;)

Finally, worth mentioning, is the fact that there is only “one road in and one road out” for the West side of the Island. When that road gets shut down due to a car accident, you will be trapped for hours and hours (sometimes even overnight). This is one more reason why I always choose Kihei over the West side. :)

Maui has been voted the "Best Island in the World" for over 23 years. With daytime temperatures ranging from roughly 85 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter, it's easy to see why Maui is such a popular destination choice and the #1 island in the world.

Aloha from Maui! Congratulations on your decision to book a vacation in sunny Maui, Hawaii; the #1 island in the world for over 25 years. :) I would be honored to help you choose accommodations in Maui that fit your needs, desires, and budget. As a full-time resident on Maui for over 13 years, I am very familiar with all that this wonderful Island has to offer. I absolutely love my job and the fact that I get to help others plan their Hawaiian vacation and/or relocation to the magical island of Maui. If you are wanting to purchase property on Maui, I am a licensed realtor in the State of Hawai'i, own a property management company in Maui, and am also a certified Home Staging Expert. In addition to managing lots of amazing properties directly across the street from the awesome, sun kissed beaches of south Maui, I am also the proud owner of my own vacation rentals. The condos I own are called Tracy’s Tropical Treasures. They are listed on Airbnb as Tracy's Tropical Treasure #1 (Ocean View), Tracy's Tropical Treasure #2 (Corner Penthouse), Tracy's Tropical Treasure #3 (Ocean View), and my newest addition, Paradise Awaits you at Tracy's Tropical Treasure #4 (Ocean View, Central A.C., and double pane windows, so no road noise inside the condo). *Tracy’s Tropical Treasure #3 and Tracy's Tropical Treasure #4 both house up to 4 guests. :) In 2016, Tracy’s Tropical Treasures were Named the #1 Vacation Rentals in all of Maui. In November, 2019, I was RANKED #1 again. ;) I have worked very hard for these achievements and on both occasions, it was one of the best days of my life when I received confirmation that I had won the awards. I look forward to speaking with you, helping you with your Maui vacation/relocation, and sharing my ALOHA spirit. I have been in the hospitality industry for over 25 years, and it's really how I choose to live my life. Pampering guests is my #1 priority! * With over 1000 bookings on the 4 rentals I own, I am extremely proud of the fact that I have NEVER had a negative review. Please feel free to check out all the reviews on Airbnb for the proof. * I am also very proud that I have been with Airbnb since 2009 and have also been a "SUPERHOST” since the program was created. In January of 2020, I earned Superhost status for the 23rd consecutive time. Airbnb is, without a doubt, the BEST vacation rental platform of all! When Airbnb was first created, I was one of only 8 listings on Maui. My claim to fame is that Brian Chesky, himself, actually called me. Brian is one of the three Airbnb founders. Back then, I had also listed my car on Airbnb, and Brian said I was the first person to ever list a car on his platform. He thought it was interesting, and we had a very nice telephone conversation. By the end of 2020, Maui had over 18,000 vacation rental listings. The Airbnb platform has grown exponentially. I am truly honored to be a part of it all. Everybody, no matter where they are, can live ALOHA. Maui is a great way to unlock the positive spirit within all of us..... Make it a great day!

  • Policy number: GET/TAT License 103-948-6976-01 This is a LEGAL vacation rental. ;) Please note that new laws went into effect for Maui on Jan. 1, 2019. Illegal vacation rental operators will now face stiff penalties and $20,000 fines, as enforcement is being kicked up several notches from our current $1000 fine in 2018. Rest assured that you will not be bothered or forced to vacate by county officials during your vacation, as this condo is already a LEGALLY ZONED vacation rental with a Hawaii State Tax ID Number that is already registered with the Department of Taxation for the State of Hawaii. :)
