I've rented a lot of different Kihei condos (almost every year since 1981) and this is the first time I've bothered to leave a review.
Even my wife, an obsessively fussy person who was initially shocked by the absence of granite countertops(!), loved it.
Among the bits we liked best:
An exceptionally clean and well maintained unit with lovely grounds and a convenient parking arrangement.
An excellent location, just steps to the beach. You have to watch that in Kihei, because some of the properties stretch way up the hill -- away from the beach.
A large unit with 2 good sized bedrooms AND 2 good sized bathrooms.
A great scale to the property. Only 60 units and they all have a close-in view of the beach and a recently renovated pool area. A nice sense of community.
An excellent onsite manager/caretaker who keeps the common areas and pool area in immaculate condition.
A very friendly and obliging unit property manager who is only a local phone call away. Useful to people like me; people too stupid to figure out how to the operate the ceiling fans.
A very large lanai (full width of the unit) with sliding doors that open wide enough to give you the sense that you are living in a tropical tree house.
And a very friendly, helpful and honest owner. If you are a first-time VBRO renter, this is more important than you think.
So, don't hesitate to select this property if it suits your timing and budget. You won't regret it.
