Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo & were sad to leave. The interior is modern, clean & comfortable. Being on the ground floor was such an asset, being able to easily wheel in our suitcases & stroller. The unit is extremely close to the smaller pool and bbqs & only a very short walk from the larger pool. The AC & ceiling fans did a good job of cooling the place down, & the one bedroom without AC was not a problem for us as we had our 16 mo/old sleeping there & we preferred not having air on her during the night. The open window & fan kept her comfortable. We loved the beautiful stone shower & were so happy with the full amenity kitchen, including dishwasher. Having a washer and dryer was also important to us & all the appliances worked well! Wifi in the condo was great. There is full time maintenance at the condo, which we found out are very efficient: We came back to the condo one day to find water dripping into our bathroom from the ceiling. We called maintenance & within a couple of minutes, someone was there to check the leak and fix it from upstairs. The condo grounds are absolutely beautiful, & we enjoyed lounging around the pools, swimming & walking around with our toddler to smell the flowering plants & trees. The location, walking distance from Front street in Lahaina was perfect for us. We drove around most of the island, visiting all the other touristy areas & realized that our location was really one of the best. Also, being so close to 'Baby beach' was great for us. There were a number of beach chairs, 2 large umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys & a cooler (with ice pack in the freezer) to bring to the beach. Here are a couple of downsides, but nothing that would deter us from staying there: - There is not a lot of lighting in the condo. This is just the way the condos are designed (we saw another unit) & when the blinds are open, there is a lot if natural light. - It is a bit of a challenge to find street parking every night & we had to pay for parking in a lot a couple of nights. However, the majority of the time, we did find street parking by waiting for someone else to leave. - There isn't a table and chairs to have a meal, so all of our meals were had sitting on stools at the 'breakfast bar'. Again, this is just the way things are designed but the owners could possibly consider adding a table & chairs for extra comfort. Big thank you to Kirsti, for great communication & for providing us with a truly beautiful condo at a reasonable price.

Great Location, Great Unit

  • 5 of 5

The grounds were beautiful and the main pool was awesome as was the sitting area and cabanas around it. Two nice BBQs are located in the smaller pool area by the condo unit and only a few steps away from the back door. The condo is located a few blocks from Front St. where all the restaurants and shops are. It was very convenient and great to get out at night and just walk around and relax after a long day of site-seeing and beach-going.

Six of us stayed at this condo for a week (4 adults, 1 teen, 1 toddler) and were very comfortable. My only issue was not having an a/c unit in the second bedroom. It was stuffy and warm in there with the door closed. Other than that our stay was great. I loved the shower! There is a blow up mattress, which we utilized, that you can use instead of the sofa bed if needed. The washer and dryer was a huge bonus. There were plenty of bath towels and beach towels to use. I loved that there were beach chairs available in the unit. It made our beach outings much more comfortable. There are also two umbrellas but with the wind they weren't sturdy enough to hold up. There was snorkel gear but there were no masks. This wasn't much of an issue for us since we had our own gear and the other half of our party went out and bought an $8 set that worked fine for our short stay. There was also a pail of beach toys for the little ones.

Wifi is only in the main pool area and the front outdoor lobby. Parking was $20 or $21 but there were lots across from the property you can use for $12 a night vs the cost the property charges. There was plenty of parking available during our stay and we were always able to park near the condo we rented.

Kristi was very nice and answered all questions I had previous to our stay.

Location was probably the best feature.

  • 3 of 5

Pros:

Location, location, location. Condo was in a lovely facility which was a stone's throw to Front street & local shopping. It was great to get up & go on a walk or run to the store and pick something up. The grounds were nicely kept, 2 big pools. This unit is very close to pool #2. Great location. As to the facility, the kitchen was modern & did have all the amenities you expect in a kitchen. It was nicely furnished, complete with dishes, dishwashing soap, towels, paper towels and coffee. The bathroom was nice, plenty of towels and the washer/dryer in the bathroom was convenient. There were plenty of beach toys, chairs, beach towels, boggie boards etc. This part was awesome.

Cons:

Not sure if it was a typo but tv situation was false. The living room did have a flat screen tv, but the remote was sporadic, often times it would get stuck. The master, a 1980's reject tv, tiny & hidden in a giant hutch type piece of furniture (with no remote). The guest bedroom did have a decent tv. Now, one might ask, who needs a tv in Maui? But with kids & after a long day at the beach, I want to take a shower and veg out b/fore bed. Not so in the master bedroom, & barely possible in the living room. We also stayed during the "Iselle" hurricane time, so it was rather frustrating to be stuck inside w/crappy tvs. Doesn't matter anyway, the a/c units were so loud it would have been impossible to hear the tv. The sofa/sleeper, I wouldn't put my worst enemy on it. Really, it is not even fit to sit on, yet alone sleep. My teenager couldn't take it, and he can sleep standing up! Fortunately, there was a blow up mattress in the closet, & while it took away the space in the living room, my teen was able to at least sleep.

Internet was only available in the pool area & lobby and was extremely spotty. Trying to rearrange last minute things to do b/c of the storm was very frustrating b/c the internet was just plain awful. We were not told and only found out by chance there as a concierge on the premises and fortunately she was able to arrange a few things for us. I knew the parking situation going in, but frankly, looking for parking at night on a dimly lit street is not safe or sound. So by day 2 we gave in and forked over $20 a night for parking. Not sure why that has to be the case. There was PLENTY of parking on the grounds.

If none of the above cons bother you, then I'd say, from a location stand point this is a nice place.

Owner's Response: If I am contacted with issues, like the remote, I can fix them. It just needed new batteries. We have replaced the t.v. in the bedroom with a flat screen. It had a flat screen and the sound went out. We borrowed the "1980's reject" t.v. from another owner until we could replace it with a flat screen. I'm sorry you got caught in the interim of the replacement. We installed free wi-fi in the room 9/24/14 for the convenience of all our guests! I'm glad you enjoyed the location!

Perfect location for our family

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family. We have 3 teenagers who took full advantage of walking to Front St. without their parents, and a 4 yr. old whose favorite part of the whole trip was having a pool right outside of our "house".

As far as the "cons"...

The second bedroom, does not have A/C, and it did get pretty warm at night. Two of our kids slept on the hide-a-bed. They didn't complain about it, but when I sat down on it, I realized that I wouldn't have been able to sleep on it. However, that's the nature of them. They just aren't comfortable.

There aren't really any drawers to put stuff in, but there are luggage stands. I like to unpack my stuff and settle in, I wished I'd had more hangers to be able to just hang everything.

The kitchen was well equipped for our needs. We went to Costco before we went to the condo and stocked up. We then filled in the holes with stuff from Safeway. I wished I'd taken some small ziplocks of spices with me. There was salt and pepper, but really nothing else. I like to cook with a variety of flavors, but it was too expensive to purchase everything we needed there.

All of that being said, we would certainly recommend this property. When we arrived, we called Kirsti to see if we could arrive a few hours early. I had a migraine and were needing to get settled. She replied right away with a code for the door. I talked with her over the phone prior to our trip and got recommendations and extra info about the property. She was great to work with.

For the cost, we were so very pleased! I actually gave the property info to a lady on the airplane on the way home. We loved the ability to do all our laundry there and we're able to bring home suitcases full of clean clothes!

Wonderful Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

So peaceful! Enjoyed both pools and hot tub. Convenient location. Just a short walk to Front Street for shopping and dining. Loved the sunsets. There is a grocery store and a Starbucks close by too! The bus is a block away and goes anywhere we wanted to go and very reasonable! Went to Kaanapali beach by bus and shopped and ate and swam with the turtles. Free Wifi at the pools and front lobby was great. We were in the Master bedroom and woke up to birds singing.
