#404 is an easy place to relax after a day of exploring Maui. The living room has a flat screen tv with Net Flix capability, a blu ray player and surround sound. There are over 400 movies and concerts to enjoy and over 300 are blu ray movies with a very large genre of titles. The large L shaped, comfy couch makes it perfect for 2 to stretch out. The ocean is just a few feet away and the wonderful swoosh of the palms in the breeze. Our view is Lanai and Molokai and the channel that runs between them.
One of my hobbies is cooking & we eat many of our meals on the lanai. The 2 large, cushioned, swivel, rocker, Tropitone chairs are very comfortable. On the lanai is spacious glass dining table is seats 4. Lots of room for you newspaper and breakfast plate! The sun rising over the top of the building, with a cup of coffee and watching the fishing boats setting out in the mist is one you won't forget. And a full moon on the water is AMAZING! And the gorgeous sunsets as they move across the channel during the year between Lanai and Molokai changing the sky from pink to green!
The building is cinder block, making it very sound proof and cool. #404 has been sheet rocked and painted with soft decorator colors. We have carpet and tile. We have purposefully stay away from large hotel style cleaning services so we can offer colored sheets and towels for a more home like experience.
Since we have set up the unit for 2 people and it is our second home you will find nice extras you won't find in a typical rental. Down pillows, a small safe in the closet., Minka fans and mood lighting in every room, local art (original and prints), lots of
books to read. We like a well stocked kitchen with items like a waffle iron, rice cooker, a local bartender recipe book and some of my fav recipes while on island. The Euro queen pillow top bed is top of the line. The bedroom has a closet. The bedroom has a wall mounted flat screen and dvd player. There is a cd stereo alarm clock for the days you must get up or just want to enjoy some local island music. In 12-2018 we installed new ADA toilet and installed a new quieter bedroom ceiling fan w remote. A KickAss fan was installed in the living room with remote in 2018.
We supply towels, sheets, hair dryer, liquid body shower soap, beach towels, a couple of body boards, beach bags, binoculars & small sand chairs. Each trip we refresh and replace items to keep the unit fresh and new for guests.
We love our whimsical items that give a personal and friendly feeling. The 2 sliders facing the ocean are always open when we are there. The sound is so relaxing when you are direct oceanfront. You really appreciate the seas power and beauty.
The West Maui beaches are getting pummeled causing lots of land erosion. In Spring our white sand beach should come back after the harsh winter waves. It is a great place to sit and soak up the Maui magic, swim, snorkel, kite surf or paddle board. 2019 brings us ecological study as to how we will preserve our beach.
The whales are easy to spot as are turtles from the shore. The channel leads to Oahu between the islands of Lanai and Molokai is your view off the lanai. Cruise ships glide by a few nights a month, sparkly with white lights like a Christmas tree.
