The View From the Lanai Could Be on A Postcard!

We loved this place! The location is great! Kihei is a fun town with lots of shopping and dining with a bit of a local feel. The condo is in a good location, close to town, but it's not in a real crowded area, so there is space to relax. The building sits back enough from the ocean to offer a large lawn with tall palm trees which add depth to the beauty of the view-the green lawn and palms, the blue of the ocean and the tan/brown of the West Maui mountains that wrap around into the water-it's breathtakingly gorgeous. The beach is nice for walking-not crowded at all. There is plenty to do on Maui, but some days, I just longed to stay at the condo and relax and enjoy the beauty of this little piece of paradise.
We found the unit very clean, very comfortable and it had everything we needed. The kitchen is nice and well stocked with appliances, and everything we needed to cook and serve the meals. We enjoyed making smoothies in the blender with the wonderful local tropical fruit. The barbecue area outside by the pool is amazing-there are 4 huge grills and a griddle and cement picnic tables for outdoor dining. These are well maintain by the grounds keepers who scrub the grills meticulously every morning.
The pool is nice and also well maintained as is the hot tub and baby pool. The center of the building is open to the sky and the space is filled with tropical plants which are misted at night-so very pretty. The laundry rooms are also well kept and very affordable to use.
Russ was great to work with and was very accessible to us when we had a question. We could tell that he puts a lot of TLC into this place. There were also some helpful and interesting books and visitor helps in some of the drawers that we really appreciated looking at.
The people who worked in the office were very nice and helpful.
When we decided to stay for a month, I wasn't sure if I would get homesick before the month was up, but truly, this place felt like home to us.
Favorite places to eat in Kihei:
Breakfast: Kihei cafe, 808 Bistro, Fred's
Happy Hour: Tiki Lounge, Three's, Stella Blues on Thursday nights-live music with Ah Tim-Hawaiian guitar player with a strong, beautiful voice-one of the highlights of our stay.
We had a wonderful vacation. Thank you so much, Russ, for allowing us to stay at your wonderful condo.
