About Randy Boomhour
We live in Canada, but we LOVE the ocean and the beach. Ever since we honeymooned in Maui we've been going back to vacation as often as we can.
Randy Boomhour purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Randy Boomhour chose Lahaina
As our family grew, we found Hawaii to be the perfect place to go - all the amenities of home (and then some), in the backdrop of one of the most beautiful tropical islands in the world. We just couldn't get enough of Maui and the ocean.
What makes this Condo unique
We love to snorkel and boogie board. We never wanted to go home at the end of each trip. There was no question, we had to invest in our own little piece of Maui paradise. We hope you'll enjoy all that Maui and Hawaii has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back too! Randy & Patti, Calgary, Canada

Perfect, Gorgeous Location
Our family of 6, including a 1 and 4 year old had a wonderful time in this perfectly located condo. This unit probably has the best views in the complex. Wonderful ocean breezes and sounds. Great pool. Nearby almost private beaches...The condo had was well supplied and had good appliances. It does need some work....one toilet has a broken handle, many floor tiles cracked , some missing. Windows could use cleaning on the outside. There obviously had been some type of ceiling issue in the middle bedroom, because it didn’t have a fan and smelled musty. The maintenance people, when called, came promptly and helped with some problems.
This was a great find.
I'll start off with the Pros. This condo is so spacious!!! There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, plates, bowls, etc. The beds were comfy. Plenty of towels for all which also included beach towels! The location was wonderful. We would have our coffee on the lanai and watch the rainbows forming across by Molokai. It was a great way to start the day. Nice pool area and gas grills. Very quiet and peaceful. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
The Cons: The condo is dated. There were some broken/loose tiles in front of the washer/dryer. A few loose ones in other areas as well. Just normal wear and tear for any house. Parking if you have 2 vehicles, is not the best. One of our vehicles parked on the street since there are only 3 guest spots. It was a short walk and we had no problems. Just making the comment.
Thank you for allowing us to rent your condo! We had a great time!!
A view that can’t be beat!
Comfortable accommodation with oceanfront situation in a cozy complex. Some upgrades needed (broken tiles in floor, for example), but overall a great choice for a relaxing getaway.
Very poor management
First the positives: really lovely complex, lovely pool. Amazing views and overall a beautiful setting. We enjoyed the location a lot. Now the negatives:
1) Communication: I tried to message the owner the week prior to our visit to confirm a few things. No response. Once we arrived, the AC unit in the master bedroom was broken. We called maintenance, who reported they had tried to contact the owner but didn't hear back. We then tried contacting the owner directly, left messages, and did not hear back- we actually never heard back from him during our entire stay. We managed to fix the unit with some very MacGyver-y methods. But what if there had been a true emergency? We apparently wouldn't have been able to reach him.
2) Ants. Tiny little ants everywhere. Yuck.
3) Floor tiles coming off the floor in several rooms. This created problems for us, as we were with an 18 month old who could have easily been injured on all the broken tiles. Some tiles would pop out just by stepping on them.
3) Weak AC even when working. Even with all the bedroom units blasting around the clock, blinds down and windows closed, we couldn't get one of the bedrooms below 80 degrees. Livable, but not ideal for a baby.
Overall, the unit is priced below other units in the Kahana Outrigger complex, but it was still in fairly poor condition. But the poor communication was concerning. Wanted to give the owner the benefit of the doubt not hearing back from him right away, but when we didn't hear back for 8 days... hard not to see a problem with that.
There is no WiFi at the condominium. The WiFi provider said they didn’t provide service and the local contact could not explain why there was no service.
A few things needed fixing (easy fixes), otherwise great location and we (my husband, son, daughter, son in-law, grandson and I preferred this place rather than a high rise resort.
In addition to the very private beach at your door step, you have your pick of some of the best beaches on Maui. Napili Bay Beach is just a few minutes north of us and has some of the best snorkeling conditions on the west side. Just beyond Napili is the famous Kapalua Bay Beach which has been rated the #1 Beach in American twice! Also minutes away are Flemings Beach, great for surfing, and Honolulu Bay, a natural marine life sanctuary.
