Real Wheelchair Accessibility
We understand what true wheelchair accessibility looks like and means.
Bruce is a C5/6 quadriplegic and we have set up a wheelchair accessible condo in a Hawaiian paradise. We and other disabled people know that a good holiday for the disabled person starts with good accessibility. If accessibility is hard, then the disabled person cannot relax and totally enjoy themselves. I am not talking about wheelchair accessibility that an able-bodied person says is accessible but TRUE wheelchair accessibility. This accessible home base allows you to explore and enjoy the beautiful, magical island of Maui. Other disabled support services available on Maui include accessible van rentals, medical equipment rentals and access to attendant care which make a holiday to Maui easy to plan. Other positive aspects of Maui, besides the tropical beauty, is that you are in the USA and protected by its laws (ADA) and no passports are needed for American citizens. There are direct daily flights from the North American mainland, you have access to a modern medical system and the true peace of mind that you can drink the water and that people communicate in English.
If you are interested in traveling to Maui, please read our website as it contains lots of useful information about our condo and Maui in general and if you have further questions or want to reserve our condo for your dream vacation please contact us and we’ll help make it happen.

Ground floor, 2 bed 2 bath unit.
Our condo is an ocean-view, beachfront, ground floor, 2 bed 2 bath unit with a queen sleeper sofa in the living room so our unit can sleep up to 6 guests. It is less than 100 feet from our lanai to the ocean. There is a split A/C system that works great for keeping the entire condo cool and comfortable.
Our condo is decorated with a tropical flair including a wall sculpture of the Hawaiian Islands and beautiful quilted tropical flower wall hangings in the living area. Amenities include a 32-inch flat screen cable HDTV, Blue Ray DVD, free wireless Internet and free telephone calls to the mainland and Canada.
Our renovated kitchen is well equipped with all the necessities like a coffee maker, toaster, microwave plus lots more including rice cooker, coffee grinder and tools for barbecuing on the complex’s oceanfront 2 barbecues.
There are details that I know about wheelchair accessible accommodations after all these years of being in the chair that a non-disabled person doesn’t know. We have done our best to make our unit as wheelchair accessible as possible.
The most important detail of all is that our unit has an accessible master en suite bathroom. It has a roll in shower with grab bars, roll under sink, an ADA toilet with grab bars and a 5-foot turning space, which provides ample room to turn around with a wheelchair.
Other wheelchair accessible features include front door and lanai door level entry, level entry from the lanai to the complex grounds, levered door handles on the entry and master bedroom door, remote control ceiling lights and fans, touch control table lamps, remote control living room and master bedroom drapes, and tile floors (no carpeting).
Subtle details such as kitchen plates and dishes in lower cabinets for easy access, not in the higher non-accessible cabinets, and furniture placement to enhance maneuverability, not hinder it. Place all these details and more in a nicely appointed 2 bed 2 bath unit that can sleep 6 only 100 feet from the ocean on Maui and you have a truly fantastic holiday for anyone who is disabled or has a family member who is disabled.
