The weather was a lovely 75-80 degrees in December and only rained 2 out of 10 days. No whales yet in the bay but took a boat trip and found a pod. The condo is in a central location which allows easy access to whatever direction you need to travel on the island. A perfect vacation!

Just a quick note to say we had a great time in Maui as always. But being where we were, 4th floor,on the water, and the fabulous breeze blowing in, it was wonderful. To wake up every morning to the ocean staring you in the face, what could be better.
MAHALO!!!!!!!!!!!!!Joe and Karen!

We had a great time at Joe and Karen's condo for our son's wedding on Maui. We had friends from St. Maarten (where our son was born) travel all the way to Maui to stay with us. The condo was perfect. I enjoyed my coffee every morning on the terrace looking over at Haleakala. The tradewinds were so cool and comfortable that we never used the air conditioning and our daughter used the computer connection to do all her online homework for her Master's Degree program while we were there. The condo is a great location, central to everything and easy to find. Joe and Karen are perfect hosts and really easy to work with. We plan to come back (again and again).
The condo was perfect for our three generations get away in April.A TV for each of us when the long day was over. The location of the condo couldn't be better. You can tour the whole Island with the least amount of travel per day from this spot. Don't miss the Pacific Whale Foundation snorkel cruise. It is within walking distance from the condo. We saw whales, dolphins and sea turtles.The only thing negative was having to leave.
WOW! What can we say? This was better than we could imagine! From my first email to Joe about renting this condo, he provided over and above all the info we needed about the condo and Maui. The condo was spotless, comfortable, well furnished, private, beautiful and had plenty of room for 6 of us. The view from the Lanai was fantastic.
The pool was clean and clear, very relaxing and the grounds were lovely and well kept. High speed internet access was one of my favorite perks! Thanks Joe & Karen for providing a wonderful memory of Maui!
We stayed in the Maui condo for a week in early March, which is a glorious time to visit. It's still whale-watching season, so there's a lot to see from the lanai. The condo proved perfect for us. We had a 6-month-old baby with us and the Dorseys were great about making sure there was a port-a-crib for the little guy. It was a wonderful week in a wonderful place.

We stayed in Joe and Karen's condo from January 28th - February 11th. The condo was perfect and Joe and Karen are great about making sure everything is ready when you arrive and that you are happy with your stay.
The whales put on quite a show! The weather was nice, a few rainy cloudy days, but still warm. But, Maui is beautiful no matter the weather!
Many Mahalos for a great "home away from home."

We spent December 23 - 31, 2005 at the condo and had a wonderful time. Joe and Karen are such wonderful hosts. The condo was very clean. What a view! We watched a mother whale and her baby playing almost every day. During our visit, we couldn't have "special ordered" better weather with not a single bad day. We're looking forward visiting again and staying in Joe and Karen's "home away from home".

We just returned from our vacation in Maui. Joe was very prompt in answering all the e-mails we sent before we went. The view from the lanai was great, spotted a few whales and sea turtles. The condo was very clean and centrally located for site-seeing on the island.

Whether waiting for the sun to rise over Haleakala or dancing under the stars on the lanai, there could be no more beautiful spot than here in Ma'alaea in this condo. The condo itself is spacious, spotless and well equipped with cool ocean breezes that tickle you as you lie in the sun. The walk on the beach is endless and breathtaking and the owners are no less than passionately in love with Maui and committed to making sure you having a good time! They are a wealth of information and give it freely! We thank them heartily for sharing their paradise and their rainbows with us!

Aloha (Grin)This was our first trip to Maui and the Dorseys Made it amazing. From the time we began looking joe made it affordable for us with detailed emails from what to do on maui and how to cut expenses. Their place was clean comfortable with three rooms, DSL, and amazing view from the "Lanai" Porch (even better then the pictures on the site). And we had trouble with our flights and missed a night he even was kind enough to refund the cost.
I would suggest this place to anyone and everyone. Thanks Joe and Karen, Mahalo (Grin)
We just returned from a wonderful stay at this condo and a great time was had by all. We found Maalaea a wonderful spot from which to explore the island with grat views and a nice refreshing breeze. The condo had everything our we needed and the owners were gracious and accommodating at all times. We will come back in the winter and stay again. Terrific and a great value.
I have to say that Joe Dorsey went out of his way to make sure that our family had a great time on Maui. Just a wonder man. Had a DSL line installed so that I could be in touch with work and my youngest daughter could do her homework. He even had his sister hook it up before we arrived. Above and beyond.
Our family was looking at spending 5 days on Maui before going over to Hawaii. Being a family of five there are not that many 3 bedroom units on Maui. The Dorsey's unit was outstanding. Great views,(saw the whales) very clean, and quiet. Easy to get to from the airport.
Miles of white sand beach less than a block down the road. Great for swimming and long walks.
This was the second time on Maui for my wife and I and we wanted to make sure that the kids had a trip of a life time. The Dorsey's helped us be able to accomplish just that. From their hospitality to knowledge of the island. You will not find a better deal on the islands than this.
Many thanks to the Dorsey's
