Welcome to our garden lanai! Take your morning coffee on the garden lanai and listen to the island birds start their day. Immerse yourself in a good book while you sip iced POG (a local drink of Pineapple, Orange and Guava juice) and feel the island breezes.
After 20+ years of vacationing in Maui we decided it was time to buy our own little slice of heaven. One of our top 3 criteria was a ground floor unit (the other two criteria were that our little slice had to be walking distance to Kamaole beaches and needed to be a one bedroom unit.)
We’ve stayed in dozens of condos over the years, and in the beginning we wanted to rent units on the upper floors to have the view. But we soon realized that we spend the entire day in the view as we’re on the beach or doing other island activities during much of the day. Then one year we rented a ground floor unit and fell in love with being able to sit and drink our coffee with the birds and among the tropical flowers in bloom and we never rented an upper floor unit again. There’s no railing to hold you in and you can get your toes in the grass and stroll in the garden. And being on the ground floor is great for families traveling with children or folks with limited mobility.
We not only enjoy our coffee in the mornings but after we’ve walked to the beach for sunset, we like to take evening cocktails on the lanai. It’s also perfect for dinner while enjoying the cool ocean breezes. If you like to grill your dinner, no problem, there are two barbecue grills located at the pool. Being so close to the grills is a huge convenience, no elevators to ride while juggling your dinner! For us it’s just a quick walk across the cushy lawn!
We’re approximately 15-20 steps to the private, gated pool and BBQs! So much convenience! Being so close to the pool is great when you want to refresh your drink, grab a snack, get a new book to read, no need to slog up and down the elevator. It’s just a few quick steps away.
