May 8, 2017 Sweet time at Suite Pacific J219 2661 Kekaa Dr, Lahaina, HI, 96761, United States

Date of Stay Mar 27, 2017

My husband and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in one of our favorite places in this world! This was our 3rd visit to J219, and it was fantastic as usual. Another perfect time of beach/cabana, walks, restaurants and dining on the lanai with the fabulous sunsets to enjoy. Steve and Linda are always wonderful and gracious hosts. Thanks again for sharing your place in paradise. Linda's beautiful paintings always make it feel like home. Peggy RI Recommended for: Tourists without a Car, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway.

Fantastic stay at the Eldorado J219

2661 Kekaa Dr, Lahaina, HI, 96761, United States

Date of Stay Oct 18, 2016

This was our 6th stay at the Eldorado and our first at Steve and Linda's place. It was great! J219 is extremely comfortable and has a location that cannot be beat. The unit is equipped with everything one needs and more. Steve was an amazing host, checking in by phone with us when we arrived and leaving us a bottle of wine. The view from the lanai is beautiful. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Owner Response: Aloha Earl and Lucy Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on your stay in our Maui home. Linda and I are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and were happy with the accommodations. We try to make sure all our guests are comfortable. We look forward to having you as return guests on your next Maui vacation . Mahalo Steve and Linda

Serenity in Paradise

2661 Kekaa Dr, Lahaina, HI, 96761, United States Date of Stay Sep 21, 2016

This was our 5th visit to the Maui Eldorado and the first to J219. There is no doubt we will return! While all our stays have been wonderful and we have been fortunate to stay in nice units, there is something really different about Steve and Linda's Maui home. It really felt like a home, not a rental condo. They have taken great care to furnish it with warmth and a touch of tropical elegance. Linda's artwork is the frosting on the cake! No condo art here, but unique and lovely paintings. The kitchen has all the supplies you need, the bath towels and linens are of very good quality and the unit is immaculate. Steve was wonderful to work with during the rental process and really goes out of his way to make sure you have all the information you need. The welcome bottle of wine was a lovely surprise and a very warm gesture as was his welcome call upon our arrival. The view from the lanai was mesmerizing and the beach cabana a great place to park yourself for the day and enjoy the beach, snorkeling and swimming. We highly recommend J219....but please take good care of it because we will be back!!!! Mahalo Steve and Linda for providing a wonderful tropical retreat! Recommended for: Age 55+, Romantic Getaway,

Owner Response:Aloha Margherita Linda and I cannot thank you enough for your very kind comments about your stay. Linda is especially pleased with your comments about her paintings; they were all painted right there on the Lanai during our visits and she is delighted that her efforts have captured the feel of Maui. The unit decorating is all hers. We try to keep the kitchen stocked with all the little things that a guest might need and many of our guests contribute their own items and leave them for other guests to enjoy. Again thanks so much and we look forward to seeing you again on your next Maui vacation. Mahalo! Steve and Linda

Paradise found

2661 Kekaa Dr, Lahaina, HI, 96761, United States Date of Stay Sep 7, 2016

My wife and I had a wonderful stay for twelve days. This is our favorite El Dorado unit yet. The room was clean, comfortable, well stocked with kitchen necessities, and full of helpful perks. Having access to boogie boards, cooler, chairs, umbrella, extra towels, ethernet cable/wifi, tupperware, ice maker, trail guide as well as two other guides to maui, fish chart, recliner chair was truly beyond our expectations. We had a great view from the lanai where we usually ate breakfast and had dinner while the sun set. The unit is also a quick 5 min walk to the cabana/ beach which is visible from the lanai. The owner is attentive and easy to communicate with. We definitely look forward to staying here again. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway,

Owner Response" Aloha Erik Thanks so much for your kind comments, Linda and I are happy that you enjoyed your stay and all the extras that are provided. Like you, we never eat inside and enjoy watching the great sunsets from the lanai. We hope to see you both back at our home away from home next time you visit Maui! Mahalo! Steve and Linda

Another Perfect Vacation in Maui

2661 Kekaa Dr, Lahaina, HI, 96761, United States (85116) Date of Stay
August 20, 2016 Helpful votes:0/0 This was our 3rd time to stay in this unit. We love staying in this condo that Steve & Linda so graciously share with Maui travelers. Welcomed with a bottle of wine, sparkling clean condo and personal phone call from Steve to make sure all was well. During our stay this year we were entertained by Hurricanes Madeline & Lester. Steve was the best to ensure we were ok; offering arrangements for us in case our departure was affected by the two tropical weather systems. Luckily Maui was spared any damage and our vacation was very pleasant. This condo has one of the best views of the ocean, golf course and summer sunsets between the islands of Molakai and Lani. Very convenient location to the parking structure and BBQ area for the J unit. We enjoy going to the Fish Market for daily fresh catch selections. Found Betty's Beach Café to be a new hidden gem for us. They have been there for 7 years we were told and have a great breakfast, lunch menu and views with a nice breeze right off the ocean. Steve is always available for questions throughout your stay and extremely helpful and pleasant to work with. Needless to say, we will continue to be on his return renters list. This condo can't be beat. Recommended for: Sightseeing, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway

Second stay, but not the last

This was the second time my wife and I stayed in this unit. The condo has a great view of the ocean and part of the golf course. The view alone is worth the price of the stay. The condo is very well equipped with all of the needed items to insure a great vacation. When staying in this unit, you are right in the middle of great dining, shopping, water activities and golf. This was our second vacation in this unit, but it will not be the last rental when we visit Maui again

Owner Response: Aloha David and Eva Thanks so much for your kind words and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay and the great view from our Lanai. We feel the same way and always look forward to the great sunsets. We try our best to be sure that the unit is stocked with everything that a guest may need and then some. Again thanks for choosing our unit again for your Maui vacation and we look forward to welcoming you on your next Maui vacation. Mahalo! Steve and Linda

Best rental of several we have made in Maui

We have stayed in the Kaanapali, Lahaina area 7or 8 times in the last 20 years. This condo was the best yet. We will to return again in a couple of years for sure. Restaurants and shops change but seem to get better every time we visit. Nothing is inexpensive, but the quality is first class. Condo has plenty of crockery, knives and forks etc. The appliances are high end and actually work well! Did not have a bedside table on my side of the bed so I used a convenient chair to put my night time noggin on.

Owner response: Aloha Neil Linda and I are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in our Maui Home and appreciate your comments that it was well equipped and the best out of several times you have stayed at the Maui Eldorado. With regard to no nightstand next to the bed , we have tried to find something that would fit in the small space next to the bed and have not given up looking. We look forward to seeing you on your next vacation to Maui and the Maui Eldorado Mahalo! Steve and Linda

Lovely condo and extremely convenient location

I booked this kind of last minute. We had never stayed on Maui, so we weren't sure of the exact location or what this condo community was like. It turns out the location was perfect. It's probably 5 minutes to Lahaina for restaurants, groceries, marina, etc. The condo is stocked with everything you need to cook if you don't want to eat out every meal. There are also boogie boards, beach chairs and snorkel equipment (we take our own, but it's there), beach towels, coolers, etc. Also, the washer/dryer was great to have. If you want to travel light, you can do laundry in the condo. The condo was very clean. The view is awesome! The large terrace overlooks the golf course with the ocean in the background. I was always up before sunrise, so I would make coffee and go sit out there until 8 0r 9 and then go to the beach. The beach cabana is great! You call the front desk and the golf cart shuttle picks you up at your building and drops you off at the cabana. You can also call the cafe that's there and they will deliver lunch to the cabana for you. The food was decent and the prices (2 hefty chicken salad sandwiches, chicken wings and a drink was about $20) weren't bad considering how pricy everything is in Hawaii. From the condo, you can drive north up the coast to several other beaches if you want better/easier snorkeling. Kapalua Bay is amazing! Lots of fish and several turtles each time we went there. We would definitely book this condo again!

Owner response: Aloha Cheree Thanks so much for taking the time to offer your comments about your stay in our Maui Home. Again we are happy that you had a great time for your first stay on Maui. We try to keep the unit stocked with all the things that will make our guests feel at home and you are right about the expense of eating out every day. We too enjoy sitting on the Lanai every morning looking at the beach and hopefully catching a whale breaching. We hope to see you back again soon Mahalo! Steve and Linda

Couldn't have asked for better!

We went for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. The location is great; short walk to the beach or to multiple shops and restaurants. Also, it's a short drive to Lahaina and other areas of interest. The Eldorado is nice, because it's quiet and doesn't have a resort-feel. The unit itself is the perfect size, cozy, with everything you might need on your vacation. Steve and Linda made the process seamless and were very accommodating and made sure that we had a great stay. This is a great place to stay and we would recommend it to any couple! Thanks for everything! Marcela and Josh

PERFECT!

We recently celebrated our 50th anniversary with a trip to Maui where we stayed at J219 at the Maui Eldorado. Steve and Linda provided a home away from home. We even received a call from them to make sure everything was as expected. Everything we could possibly need was available. The kitchen area had everything anyone could think of (and more). There was a generous supply of towels, linens & pillows. The washer & dryer was nice to have so that next time we stay we can pack fewer clothes. We spent many mornings eating breakfast out on the lanai while enjoying the beautiful view. Many evenings we sat on the lanai enjoying a glass of wine while watching beautiful sunsets. The cabana that is available is a definite perk. It was only a short walk from J219 to enjoy the cabana right over the ocean. I was expecting a small space, but was pleasantly surprised that the cabana had a full kitchen with use of the refrigerator for drinks & food you may bring. Plenty of lounges were provided on the deck or you could choose to use tables inside. The deck provided sun or shade; whatever your choice. My husband and I really enjoyed laying out on the lounge chairs as we read and enjoyed the ocean view with the sounds of the waves underneath the deck. Our anniversary dinner was at Leilani's on the Beach which was excellent. We would highly recommend seeing the performance of " 'Ulalena " at the Maui Theater to enjoy the music and dance of Hawaiian history. Another night we enjoyed the food and entertainment at Warren & Annabelle's. The magic tricks and comedy were amazing. The Eldorado is located in such a nice area of Lahina. And J219 has a terrific location in the resort. We will definitely return to J219 on our next visit to Maui. We had the most perfect time and thank Steve & Linda for sharing their beautiful Maui home. Jim & Karen

  Owner response: Aloha Jim and Karen We thank you for your comments regarding your stay in our Maui Home and happy that we helped make your 50th anniversary special. All your comments reflected our same feelings about J219 and how we enjoy the Lanai every day, the beach cabana with all it's amenities, and the great location of our home. We have been doing it since 1989 and never get tired of the experience. As for the well stocked kitchen and everything else in our home the credit goes to Linda and her efforts to make it a home rather than just a condo. We hope to see you again on your next Maui vacation. Mahalo! Steve and Linda

Great!

We went for our honeymoon...Steve was very communicative all the way through...the condo was even nicer than the pictures. The location was great (we didn't use a car, just the bus and taxis), and the view was outstanding. Thanks so much!

Maui Condo

We enjoyed our stay at Steve and Linda's condo. The Kitchen had everything we needed, lots of extras too! We had an awesome view from our Lanai. We were lucky enough to have a concert across the golf course while we were there (Jimmy Mac and the Cool Cats). We enjoyed the Cabana very much. There was snorkeling equipment in the condo, boogie boards. This was a great location as we were able to walk to Lahaina, Canery Mall. There is a free trolley bus that goes to Whaler's Village or many of the other hotels/condos. There is a city bus stop just outside the Maui Eldorado. Thank you Steve and Linda for sharing your lovely Maui condo.

Kaanapali Paradise

Our stay at Steve and Linda's at Maui Eldorado condo was wonderful. The kitchen is well equipped for making meals using local produce, meat, and fish. The king size bed, sofa, and reclining chair are comfortable. With the ocean view we often had breakfast on the lanai. Walking around the grounds was easy with the paved pathways which also led to the beach walk. It is also a short stroll to Whaler's Village down Kekaa Drive. The cabana on the beach has chairs/chaises both in the sun and shade. In the evening, we enjoyed watching HDTV on the 50 inch flat screen, swimming in the Turtle pool, and on Thursdays having a Mai Tai in the Lobby.

Special Anniversary

Our stay in this unit was perfect. Spectacular views of the beach, sunsets and lush fairway. Short walk to a private beach with a well equipped cabana. Convenient to a variety of nice restaurants and shops in Kaanapali. This condo home was comfortably furnished and attractively decorated with Linda's paintings. The unit was clean, and well supplied with linen, dishware, and cooking utensils. Wonderful place to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary.

Perfect Spot for our Anniversary Trip!

This was our second stay at this condo. By far, the best in value, location, and amenities. The owners do a wonderful job of providing everything you'll need for a great vacation. Their description is spot on. The building is the closest in Eldorado to the beach and convenient to the parking garage. The condo itself, besides being clean and well appointed, comes complete with beach umbrella and chairs, snorkeling gear (although we bring our own), boogie boards, and a hair dryer that has enough power to dry long, thick hair! We discovered Maui travel books, CD's, DVD's in the room, and a deck of UNO cards that accompanied us to the cabana more than once! Steve has been attentive and efficient on both occasions to respond to any requests/questions throughout the reservation process and stay. We find the location to be perfect for us in being within walking distance to the Kaanapali area south of Black Rock, but without the crowds. A mile north along the beach is a great area to snorkel, Kahekili Park (by car, left turn at Kai Ala). Still our favorite find...Taco Tuesday at Leilani's. Thank you, Steve and Linda, for the welcome bottle of wine and for another memorable and romantic trip to your home in Maui!

Great Condo for Vacation

Location, location, location! This was our second stay in this unit. After many visits to the Maui Eldorado, this has become one of our favorites. Perfect view, amenities and owners. A bottle of wine to welcome you and a personal call from the owner to make sure all is as it should be. Community BBQ is just a short walk away and the kitchen is well stocked for all your cooking needs. Whalers General Store in the Fairway Shops is handy for those forgotten items. Times Market sells small boxes of laundry soap for those small load needs. Enjoy dinner at the Aloha Mixed Plate behind Safeway and listen to the Luau entertainment while enjoying the breeze off the ocean and a great meal. Fresh fish daily at the Fish Market is our go to choice for BBQ Fish night. Thank you Steve & Linda for sharing your condo with us.

Great Stay

My wife and I just returned from a great 11 day stay at the Maui Eldorado. This is our third time to stay at The Eldorado. We really like the location and features offered by the Maui Eldorado. Our stay in Steve and Linda's unit was our best. The entire process was very easy and professional. From making the reservation to check-out, everything went as expected. The room was exactly as shown on the web site. Everything was updated and in great working condition. There are many positives when you stay in this unit. The best thing is the view from the lanai. The view of the golf course and ocean is fantastic. We really enjoyed eating breakfast while enjoying the view. If you are considering staying at the Maui Eldorado, I can give you a 100% recommendation you will have a great stay in this unit. We will contact Steve and Linda to stay in their unit when we visit Maui again.

Great as usual

This was our 4th stay at Steve and Linda's J219. It starts with a nice bottle of wine and a welcoming call from Steve and gets better from then on. Very nice and comfortable studio unit with a great view across the golf course to the beach. The unit itself is always spotless (many upgrades over the years) with lots of extra amenities like beach chairs, cooler and boogie boards available for guests to use. The kitchen, with beautiful wood cabinets, has everything you will need. The bed is very comfortable with extra pillows and the spacious balcony is perfect for that first cup of coffee in the morning. The complex itself is very well maintained, the pool and BBQ faculties are great and the checkin/checkout process is very efficient. Just another wonderful stay and we hope to be back soon. Thanks again to Steve and Linda !

Hooked on Renting from Owner

We had a wonderful week here. We had everything we possibly needed at our fingertips in this fully equipped condo. More kitchen utensils than you could ever use, plenty of fresh linens, and even beach needs. The unit was clean, modern, and warm and welcoming with the décor. What a view! Seeing the golf course and ocean from the lanai while enjoying our morning coffee was fabulous. The owners were so accommodating and easy to work with. They called to check on us our first night and made sure we had everything we needed. Mahalo Steve and Linda!

Great time in Maui

This unit was perfect in every way. The space is nicely appointed with a large bed, full kitchen, bathroom with walk-in shower, flat screen TV, sofa, and a great balcony with a nice sized breakfast table and chairs. The kitchen has everything you need: toaster, blender, coffee machine, microwave, utensils, pots & pans, can opener, wine opener, etc. The ceiling fans allow for nice airflow throughout the unit. The unit is, in my opinion, located in the perfect spot within the complex – ocean and golf course views, close to the main pool and gas grill, and the parking garage is also nearby. A nice touch by the owner was the bottle of red wine awaiting our arrival. We can't wait to go back to this unit next year!

best view in the complex

We spent a week at Kaanapali Eldorado J19. It was paradise.There may be other suites with a view to equal this one but none any better than this suite.The suite was clean well equipped and within a short walk of the Cabana and the beach. Steve [The owner] was very easy to work with and and very accommodating. There was a phone call from him shortly after our arrival to make sure everything was in order and also a vacation welcoming bottle of wine.We will definitely stay in both the Eldorado and this suite again and recommend both to friends.

One of Our Best Maui Vacations

We have been visiting the Maui Eldorado over the last 40 years, first with our children, now just the two of us. Steve & Linda's condo fits the bill perfectly. The unit overlooks the Kaanapali Golf Course with a gorgeous view of the ocean and what spectacular sunsets we viewed every night. A very warm welcome and bottle of wine from our hosts; what a nice touch. The location is perfect for a short stroll to the beach or to the community BBQ grill. The unit is well equipped for "away from home" living. The kitchen is my favorite place to be and I was very pleased with the cookware made available in this unit. We admired the taste in the décor and beautiful Hawaiian artwork and was amazed to find all the pieces were done by our hostess...Beautiful! Steve was extremely helpful in answering my many questions and spot on with our needs including a personal call from him on our day of arrival. I think we just found our favorite unit to stay in when visiting Maui. Thank you Steve & Linda! We will be return renters for sure.

The Best Views

I have stayed at this condo several times. The studio is updated, clean, comfortable, quiet and the view is the best! You can see golf course, beach, walking trails, cabana, but best of all the sunsets. You are close to shops, restaurants and a very short drive to Lahaina or Kapalua. The beach is clean and uncrowded; the waters calm and water warm. The owners call to make sure you are comfortable and take care of any needs you have. I recommend staying here and I will return again.

Best Sunsets Ever!

My husband and I have been to Maui many times, and this is our favorite property. The beach cabana is a relaxing place to enjoy the sun, the beach and snorkeling at black rock. Unit J219 is a comfortabel studio that offered everything we expected during our 10 night stay. We were greeted with a bottle of wine from the owners and a beautiful sunset on our first night. The view from our balcony was perfect and we enjoyed eating outside and watching the ocean. The unit is very clean, provided nice extras such as beach towels and chairs and has a very well equipped kitchen. One night we cooked dinner in and relaxed with movie on the blue-ray dvd player (after watching a spectacular sunset). We would recommend both the property and this unit to our friends and family and look forward to our next trip to Maui and unit J219.

Everything As Advertised And More!

My husband and I arrived to Kaanapali, Maui on our wedding anniversay for an 8 day stay. We had found this condo on the VRBO website and after reading reviews we decided this was the place for us. Owner Steve was great about answering our questions (there were a lot!) and providing information about the area, etc. We found this condo to be just perfect for us. We had been to this same area 3 years ago and stayed at a very nice hotel, but the lack of a kitchen and room to relax and feel more at home were the things we most missed during that stay. The decision to go with the condo was the best one we could have made! The condo is super clean and has so many little touches and supplies that they are just too numerous to mention. And the location is great for walking to restaurants, shops and the beach. The private cabana for the condo complex is really nice and is right on the beach. No worry about having a towel or a place to dry off after a swim or just to sunbathe. It is all right there along with a kitchen and bathroom, as well a cooler shady place to sit if you get to warm and want to cool off for awhile or aren't a sun lover. The condo lanai provides a nice view of the golf course and the ocean. We spent a lot of time out there; from morning coffee to an evening glass of wine it was just wonderful. We wil definitely stay in this condo next time we come to Maui!!! Thank you Steve and Linda!

Couldn't have asked for more!

This unit was everything described on the website and more. Perfectly located, quiet, well taken care of, well equipped, gorgeous view from the Lanai for morning coffee & and evening cocktails. We never want to leave, but we're pretty sure if we don't our paychecks will stop being deposited into our bank account. The owners of the unit are easily accessible, and great to work with. We received a welcome phone call from Steve on the day we arrived just to make sure we were happy with our choice of accommodations and to make sure we had everything we needed. That, and a bottle of wine waiting for us made us feel welcome, and confirmed to us that they really want their guests to have everything needed to enjoy their stay. We hope Steve and Linda are as comfortable having us here, as we are being here, because they have just created return customers for years to come. Steve & Linda, Mahalo for a spectacular vacation!

J219 - Maui Eldorado - AWESOME....AGAIN!

This is our second stay in unit J 219 and once again the location, cleanliness and overall comfort of the unit made our stay perfect! The unit is in the most desirable building, a very short walk to the beach and away from the parking lot of the Eldorado. The lanai is fantastic and was used every morning and evening to watch whales go by. The main reason that we returned to unit J 219 was that is was so easy to deal with the owners, Steve and Linda. Steve is super organized and honest. You can trust what he says that this is so important when dealing with a private rental. A bottle of wine awaits you upon your arrival and you can expect a call from Steve the first morning to make sure that everything is A-OK in the unit. He even has an on island maintenance person to call in case of emergencies within the unit. We highly recommend renting unit J 219 at the Eldorado. Book early!

Everything we hoped for!

We would recommend this condo to anyone staying in Kaanapali. The location is ideal, with the beach, shopping and restaurants all within walking distance. Steve was on top of everything and his communication was great throughout our stay. The kitchen is fully stocked with every gadget, utensil and piece of dinnerware you could ever need. Having our own laundry machine and dryer was also great. The lanai has great ocean views and having breakfast out there was the best way to start the day. You won't find anything in the area with these type of amenities for the price!

Another fun stay in Maui

It's always a great stay in this property. The owners, Steve and Linda have continually updated the condo. New granite, appliances etc. One of the nicest features is that the grounds surrounding J219 are perfectly maintained and best of all, the facility is quiet!. The wife and I have been to Maui many times, and stayed in several locations on Kahanapalli, this is our favorite. Access to the beach is simple, lots to do in the area, and the beach with its cabana is almost like having a private beach. Snorkeling is excellent, waves are safe for kids, and it's a great condo to rent. Highly recommended! Photos on the web are accurate, clean with every cooking tool you will ever need, wireless internet for free. Dukes happy hour a great deal, snorkeling by black rock good but crowded at times, loads of fish close to shore if you're a rookie, saw some huge turtles. Monkey Pod resturant near Makena Beach a great find, the best Mai Tai on the island, hands down. Hope to make J219 a regular stay every few years.

J219

Our vacation to Maui was amazing mostly because of our decision to stay at the Maui Eldorado unit J219. The unit itself is clean and updated with the amenities necessary to feel at home. The location to the Whaler's Village is a convenient ten minute walk and the beach is approximately five minutes down a path. Every morning, we loved sitting on the Lanai eating breakfast while looking out at the ocean. Overall, the property is quiet, comfortable, and clean. I especially appreciated that the owners of this unit were always available to answer phone calls and emails and eager to offer dining and activity suggestions. We will definitely suggest this unit to all of our friends and family, and when we return to Maui, we plan on staying in J219 again.

J219 is in a perfect location. The condo is tastefully decorated. Everything you could possibly need is supplied. Within walking distance is Whaler's Village which has some very good restaurants and unique shops. The beach here is one of the best on the island. There are wonderful views from the lanai. It was our favorite spot for watching sunsets every evening. We would definitely recommend this condo to friends and family traveling to Maui. When we return, we will stay in J219 again!

Wonderful condo in a perfect location

J219 is just as it looks on the website. The condo is very close to the ocean, with a great ocean view from the lanai. A short walk to Whaler's Village which has some very good restaurants and unique shops. A welcoming bottle of wine, and a phone call from the owners the first day we were there, was extremely thoughtful. The condo had everything supplied that anyone could need. Every pot and pan you could want, a vegetable peeler, a steamer basket, lots of utensils. Probably better stocked than my kitchen at home! We loved the fact that there was a washer/dryer in the unit.. That way, you don't need to pack quite as much. It is nice to get back home and not have to do a lot of laundry. We would recommend seeing the Haleakala Crater and The Road to Hana (we took the tour) Snorkeling was lots of fun. The water is so crystal-clear and the fish and coral very colorful. The highlight of snorkeling for us was seeing the green sea turtles. We ate in quite a lot, especially enjoying breakfast on the lanai. Restaurants we enjoyed are The Hula Grill and Leilani's in Whaler's Village (a short walk) and Milagro's in Pi'ia. When we return to Maui, we will definitely stay in J219 again. It is the a wonderful condo in the most perfect spot on the island. Close to everything we wanted, quiet at night. One other plus, is parking in the covered garage.

Romantic Anniversary Location

We just returned from a wonderful three weeks at J219 and it was everything we hoped it would be; excellent location, clean, well-appointed, equipped, and maintained. Steve was very helpful and attentive to our questions and needs every step of the way. We took a photo that looks very similar to the sunset on the listing...beautiful! Since we enjoy the water, this location is excellent for snorkeling at Black Rock or up the beach at Kahekili Beach Park, a long swim up the coast, or just relaxing at the cabana. Whaler's Village is within walking distance for restaurants and shopping. A particular favorite find this trip was the Taco Tuesday happy hour at Leilani's; delicious and a great spot for people watching. We also enjoyed buying our fresh fruit (for breakfasts on the lanai) at the farmer's market in Honokowai. If you're looking for activities and amenities nearby, but quieter than the area between the Sheraton and Hyatt, this is the place. Loved every minute and hope to return again soon!

Exceptionally beautiful studio

My husband and I recently completed a twelve day stay in J219, May 8-20. We were pleasantly surprised by this studio condo. It was updated beautifully, well-equipped, and very tastefully decorated. Overall, it had an upscale appearance and appeal. The artwork in the suite is beautiful and adds to the serenity and classiness of the unit. The king size bed was comfortable, and the entire place was in pristine condition when we arrived. The lanai had a gorgeous view of the ocean, cabana, and the golf course. We spent many hours relaxing on the lanai, morning, late afternoon and evening. The sunsets viewed from the lanai were breathtaking. The owners, Steve and Linda Celona, are magnificent to deal with, and do their best to make the stay easy to facilitate and comfortable to enjoy. All in all, this rental exceeded our expectations. We definitely recommend J219 to anyone interested in a studio rental. The Maui Eldorado staff do a great job keeping the grounds maintained, and we found everyone we came into contact with very friendly and accommodating. The convenience of having a beach cabana, fully equipped with a kitchen, and beach towel service, not to mention washrooms and ocean front lounge chairs was such a well-appreciated perk! Guests could even phone up beach side service for beverages and sandwiches etc. Wow! Although we didn't use the shuttle service to go to the cabana because we enjoyed walking down to it, the shuttle is a wonderful convenience to any guests who need the ride for whatever reason. I honestly can't say enough about how wonderful our experience at the Maui Eldorado was. We hated to leave, and plan to return some day!

From the time of booking right through until our stay and sadly, checkout..our experience was excellent! Steve was most accomodating, checking to make sure our vacation choice met our expectations. The unit was spotless, updated, well stocked. Awesome ocean view from the lanai...close walk to beach. The beach cabana is unique to Maui and can't be beat...we spent countless hours there totally relaxing! Unit J219 is walking distance to many quality restaurants and shops. We even went on a whale whatching cruise and got picked up right on the beach..a short walk away from the condo. We'd highly recommend this unit..although we'd also like to keep it our little secret! ;)

Cozy condo in Ka'anipali

We found the studio condo to have everything we needed for our three week stay. It was very clean, tastefully decorated and even included beautiful paintings on the walls. It sits on Ka'anipali Golf course with a great view of the sunset from the lanai. While separated from the row of hotels, it provides a quiet refuge if you want it but you are only a few minutes walk from all the action of the boardwalk. We'll be back! We recommend the rental of a car to allow you the opportunity to drive the road to Hana, go up north to see the spectacular waves and blow holes at high tide, shop at Costco in Kahului, watch the windsailers, surfers and turtles east of Pai'a or see the world from the top of the volcano. We also used the Maui bus to go to Lahaina as parking can be a problem some days.

Excellent property. I have stayed on Maui 13 times and in this complex 8 times. This was by far the best condo I have ever stayed in . Large screen TV and internet provided ( which both worked perfectly!). Description by owner was accurate and the property clean and well maintained. If you look at the photos, you get exactly what you see. Ocean view was awesome and price was better then other units with no ocean view. I would recommend this to friends and relatives and I plan to return and rent this unit myself. Best accomodations I have ever had on the Island of Maui. Plenty of silverware and other utensils to eat in whenever you wish. This condo is fantastic!!

Wonderful!

We had an amazing holiday, due in large part to our accomodations. The information is accurate, giving confidence to your choice. The condo exceeded our expectations - being very clean and super-equipped to make our stay as comfortable as being at home. The kingsize bed offers great support making for restful sleeps. Wonderful views and the privacy and quietness from the balcony made relaxing so enjoyable. The owners were most helpful and offered great suggestions for eating out and excellent activities. The books and magazines at the condo were thoughtful and helpful for planning. We definitely plan on returning and staying at this property. Highly recommend this condo for a couple looking for a memorable holiday. Mahalo Steve and Linda for sharing your home with us!

Great Kanapali Vacation

Unit was exactly as owner described and more. Recently renovated and well maintained, the kitchen and bathroom were top notch, the king bed was very comforatable, and the lanai had a great view of hole 4 and 5 of the Kanapali North Golf course, with an ocean view in the distance. If we had any questions, the owner or the front desk answered them promply and accurately. Easy walking distance to the beach (beautiful sand) and Whalers Village. My wife and i would stay here again, and highly recommend it.

What an awesome location!

Thank you Steve for allowing us to stay in your suite, this past week. Your location (and the view!!!) is one of the best in the complex. The unit is so well equipped and maintained we had everything we needed to feel right at home. We stayed in your suite based on recommendation from a friend, and we will ensure that our other friends know of your unit, and highly recommend it. The Italian restaurant just minutes away from the Eldorado remains one of the best meals we have when in Maui. Thanks again.
