“Everything about this holiday setting is absolutely lovely.”
Reviewed 9 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Everything about this holiday setting is absolutely lovely.

The condo itself is perfectly equipped with good quality items and furniture, and decorated with a Hawaiian warmth. There are ample towels, bed linen and kitchen table staples. We stayed for a month and didn’t reach the bottom of the piles.

The block of condos is spotless and extremely well curated by a competent caretaker. The pool is small but fine for a dip. The small stony beach at the foot of the lawn is great for turtle watching.

From the balcony the view of the bay and the Pacific is stunning. We saw dozens of whales each day from there, many close enough to observe easily without binoculars. We have never seen anything like it before and we are widely travelled across 5 continents.

Nikta was an excellent host, easily hitting the sweet spot between leaving us alone and offering support. She is friendly, thoughtful and charming. She left a generous welcome basket for our arrival.

Maalaea is a great location poised between the two sides of the island. A fantastic sand and rock beach starts 2 minutes along the coast from the condo, with an hour or so of uninterrupted beach strolling at your doorstep.

I certainly hope to return.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 18 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

What a beautiful place to vacation in, right on the ocean front, peaceful and quiet, well kept pool and grounds and above all Nikta's eye for detail. Everything in her condo was top notch, She just blew us away with her sense of style and quality of her furnishings. Nikta has gone above and beyond with the amenities in her condo.
We recomend her condo to anyone who appreciates the nicer touches in vacationing

“Excellent ocean front location, comfortable and well equipped condominimum!”

Unit #219 is an ocean front condominium with beautiful views from the lanai! We arrived to a very nice welcome basket of fruit from Nikta (thanks!. Watch the boats sailing out to Molokini for a great day of snorkeling, people surfing, or walk down to the beach and watch the sea turtles playing in the surf. One evening a sea turtle came out of the water to enjoy the beach. There is a pool and hot tub, and the grounds are peaceful. On our walk across the grounds we noticed a banana tree. We walked to the Maalaea Harbor to catch a boat out to Molokini (thanks Nikta for helping us connect with Scott for a snorkeling trip). Restaurants are close, and Kihei is about 5 miles from your unit. Lots to do! Feel like having lunch in Lahaina? It's about 15 miles up the road where you will have some awesome views along the way. Our host--Nikta--was so accommodating and knowledgeable. Nikta has stocked the unit with beach chairs, umbrellas, and so much more to make your trip to the many beaches very easy.

“Very nice and perfect location”
Reviewed 15 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

person found this review helpful

Coming fom Germany, I was the first time and only one week on Maui. Before arriving, Nikta helped me to organize my stay, for example to find and to book a fishing trip, which was a very exciting experience. The location in Maalaea was absolutely inviting and familiar from the first moment (I absolutely didn´t expect a welcome-basket!). Unit 219 is a completely equipped and clean household which was very nice decorated with flowers. A parking place for the rental car was included. Maalaea banyas is a good place to reach the different and interesting sights of maui because of its location in the middle of the island. From here, I started snorkling trips near lahaina and in the other direction to Haleakala and the eastern coast to the hana road. So I can absolutely recommend the appartment because of it´s central location for discovering the island and the most helpful owner, one can imagine. If I come back to Maui, it is no question where to stay.

“Paradise in the Banyans”
Reviewed 21 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My mother and I visited this wonderful home the beginning of April 2016. We were absolutely thrilled with all the special details and cleanliness of this condo. On the lanai you could view turtles feeding in the water less than 100 yards away! Nikta Houston was very sweet and a joy to work with. I know a lot of heart was placed into this home.

I loved the condo and Maui so much! You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

“Wonderful place to stay on Maalaea Bay”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

This condominium at Maalaea Banyans is the perfect place for my holiday when I travel yearly to Maui. First: the location: it is very quiet, with cane fields behind and the magnificent ocean directly in front. For me this is a real plus, allowing me to listen to the music of the waves and songs of the birds. I love to sit on the lanai and enjoy tropical fruits. Nikta Houston, the owner, always has a fresh basket to welcome her guests. She is also a wealth of friendly information and help - from where to buy more of that local produce, to timely events, contacts for arranging activities, etc. She checks in with me several times during my stay; as a woman traveling alone, this really adds to my feeling of security. A short 5-minute walk brings you to the end of the street & Sugar Beach. Often while walking in the morning, I have it practically to myself (one of my favorite pastimes; and the best time to walk. The condo is also quite centrally located on the island, so one can easily be in lots of different kinds of terrains and environments - of which Maui has so many varieties! Town or country, art/entertainment or natural beauty - all within a relatively short drive. This is great if you like to explore a place, as I do. The unit itself is beautifully decorated and completely equipped for all that one needs: great appliances in tasteful built-in bamboo cabinets. Lovely sage-green linens and towels, which complement the calming color scheme of the whole condo - even the soaps are high-quality & organic! I cannot recommend Maalaea Banyans #219, or its proprietor, Nikta Houston, highly enough. It's a lovely place, conveniently located, and Nikta is always delightful to deal with, start to finish. Lastly, for what one receives, I believe the price is quite reasonable as well.
