I thoroughly enjoyed my week-long stay in this condo. I took my elderly mother to Maui for a mother-daughter vacation, and we had a great time. This condo was terrific and offered a lot of privacy for each of us, as the master bedroom/bathroom is on the other side of the condo from the guest bedroom/bathroom. The kitchen has granite counters and high-end appliances, which made the cooking we did in the condo a real pleasure. The living room was very comfortable, with a large TV which had a lot of channel options.
We ended up staying in the condo without venturing out for many days because I came down with a nasty cold which I think I caught on the plane trip over to Maui. It was so nice that the condo was so large and comfortable, since we didn't leave the condo for about three days while I recovered from my cold. My Mom spent most of the days I was sick in bed out on the patio with a book, or just enjoying the lovely view of the golf course. She really enjoyed her time on that patio, and knowing that she was enjoying that lovely space and the lovely view lessened my guilt over being sick.
The only problems we experienced were minor, and had nothing to do with the condo itself. Specifically, one night there were about five teens and pre-teens playing loud, boisterous games in the pool, including "marco polo". We could hear their screams and yells even with the sliding glass doors closed. The complex rules clearly state that no loud games are allowed, so after about an hour of listening to the screeching I went to the pool area with a copy of the rules and asked them to stop. To their credit, they did quiet down quite a bit. The other issue we had was the loud partying late one night of the people renting the condo next to us, but this occurrence only happened once.
Having the Fairway shops within walking distance was very convenient. We ate at CJ's Deli three times, and found the prices to be very fair, the food very good, and the service very pleasant. I highly recommend CJ's Deli. We also ate an awesomely delicious pizza at Round Table pizza, also located at the Fairway Shops. I also recommend Round Table.
I highly recommend this condo for anyone wanting a luxurious two-bedroom, upscale condo with a lovely view for a very reasonable price. To top it off, the owner, Joe, is very easy to work with and I appreciated his quick responses to all my questions. I'll definitely be renting this condo again the next time I'm in Maui!
