This large, 3.500 sq ft. oceanfront estate home sits on 2/3rds of an acre and has 5 bedrooms and 5 baths (sleeps 12). In addition, It also features an expansive (1,100 sq. ft.) covered ocean view terrace with a large seating and dining area, including a Weber gas barbeque. VRBO is not able to price out options so the price you see on this website is for the house only which sleeps 12. If you have a larger group you may also add our optional (1,000 sq ft) apartment (an extra charge of $195 per night) on the estate which adds another bedroom and bath, sleeping up to 5 more, and brings the total accommodations to 17 for both home and apartment. This apartment offers you a great deal of flexibility as it is optional, and may be added later if your group becomes larger than originally planned. If you don't use it the apartment will go empty to maintain your privacy. You will always have exclusive use of the property.
If your group gets even larger we also have a beautiful 1,080 sq ft two bedroom two bath beachfront condo available just down the beach from our house which can accommodate up to 6 guests. It is apartment G-10 at the Maalaea Surf Resort and photos of our condo are included on their website. Contact me for reservations.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This home is a legal vacation rental property, and has been officially approved and licensed by the County of Maui.

The County of Maui Enforcement Division is aggressive in shutting down illegal vacation rentals.
Our home is located on the south-west coast of the beautiful tropical island paradise of Maui. The house was originally built as a beach getaway for a wealthy Maui family living on the slopes of the nearby Haleakala volcano. Built on 2/3 of an acre, and fronting the beach and ocean, the house has the feel of old Hawaiiana with its lava rock walls and fireplace, high beamed ceiling, large covered lanai, expansive lawn, private pool, and beautiful tropical landscaping, which includes a wonderful old Banyan tree, large Monkeypod tree, tropical fruit trees, and 10 palm trees. With its expansive grounds and sleeping capacity, it is perfect for extended family groups, reunions, anniversaries, and other celebrations. Weddings or receptions are not authorized, but low key family celebrations such as birthdays or anniversaries are welcome but attendees are restricted to guests listed on the Rental Agreement.
The moment you walk through the double door entry you will be treated to an expansive, 180 degree ocean view with the white sand beach just 50 feet from the front of the property. We face West and you will enjoy amazing sunsets and during the whale season lots of whale sightings from you lanai. Our home offers everything you could want in a large, luxury beachfront vacation rental.
With its lava rock wall, and electronic entrance gate, you'll enjoy complete privacy and security. There is secure off-street parking for up to 6 vehicles. The home is perfect for extended families, and a great place to host celebrations and other events, however we want to stress that this is not a party house, and we do ask that, in respect to our neighbors, noise levels be kept moderate at all times, and that quiet hours are maintained from 11 pm to 7 am. All events and special celebrations must be approved in advance by the owner, and in some cases there may be a special event fee included.

Our Estate Home has a full laundry room and two refrigerators to handle the crowd. A third refrigerator is in the apartment.

We've added many upgrades in the last few years including a 55 inch HDTV, all new major appliances in the kitchen, new outdoor dining tables with 12 chairs, an outdoor lounge seating area, six pool lounges, and new bedspreads and drapes in the bedrooms. Three bathrooms have been completely remodeled in 2018. In 2019 all 5 bedrooms had new floors and base boards installed. Outside the landscaping has been upgraded as well.
The white sand beach in front of the house is one of the best swimming beaches on the island, with gentle waves, and is very child friendly with no undertows or currents. And if you like to walk the beach, there's over four miles of uninterrupted sand, all the way to Maalaea Harbor!
Our service staff will be on the property from time to time during your stay, but will be as unobtrusive as possible. Our caretaker will drop by to remove the trash on Sunday and Wednesday night, and our landscaping service and pool service is scheduled for every Friday morning. Our cleaner uses the laundry room in the garage weekly to wash and dry towels and bedding, and occasionally other service people will arrive to make repairs, etc.
