We purchased our condo after falling in love the property and location during a visit to Maui. While our busy schedules with our children and work keep us on the go, we look forward to our visits back to the island, where we always feel At Home in Maui. Should anything come up that you need assistance with our property manager will be there to help you right away. Unlike some agents with multiple rentals, we have selected an experienced manager couple, Louise & Buck, who takes care just one rental, your perfect stay while in paradise.

Louise purchased this condo in 2006

The convenience of so many amenities, great beaches, and shopping withing walking distance of the condo was a big influence on our deciding to purchase. The property location being set off the main road away from noise but still close to everything was another plus. Our year round neighbors at the property as well as the staff and management make our place more than ever our island home, rather than just another rental in a vacation rental resort.

The views from front and back of the condo we never grow tired of. While is isn't ocean front, we still enjoy watching sunsets or looking for whales to spout or breach from the lanai, and looking for the rare glimpse of snow on the summit of Haleakala in the 'winter' while enjoying 80 degree sunshine at the condo. The best sunsets, however, are just a few steps away at Kamaole III, where this photo was taken. Everyday is a new sunset, never the same as the one before. Our kids enjoy the large open lawn of the park at Kamaole III for kite flying, swinging, endless games of tag, volleyball, soccer, and more.

OUR RENTAL EXPERIENCE...MUCH GOOD, BUT SOME NEGATI

  • 3 of 5
We appreciated the location of the condo, it was a very quick walk to the beach. The condo unit was very clean, nicely decorated, fully stocked and well maintained. We enjoyed having the beach equipment for use. Lots of positives!

One drawback for us was a "harder" than desired mattress in the master bedroom that we felt was uncomfortable. The second bedroom mattress was an improvement. A bigger drawback, however, was a nearby tenant (or renter?) that frequently smoked. Unfortunately, we often had to close the windows/patio door due to the strong, unpleasant odor drifting in. That same foul odor lingered in the stairwell. With that said, we were not in the condo much during our stay, but when we were, not being able to open the windows/door for the breeze/ventilation in the evening made for a stuffy unit. The A/C in the living room was helpful, but the bedrooms remained a little to warm/stuffy for our Washington blood.
Third, we did not receive rental information, access code, etc. until less than a week prior to our vacation. One week prior to departure with no access info or contact, it took two emails and a phone message before we received the information. In the end, it all worked out without a hitch, but the timing was starting to make us nervous. Our other rental on Maui had the information for us weeks ahead of time and was very good about keeping in touch.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and the negatives of the unit did not dampen the enthusiasm of our vacation. However, the smoking issue is a deal-breaker, and because of this, we would not return. It is also possible that the offender was a visitor and others would not have the same experience. We spent more time in a different area of Maui after staying in this unit, and because we did not face similar drawbacks there, we found it much more enjoyable.

I hate leaving a less than ideal review, but this was our experience. The bigger drawback for us (strong smoking odor from neighbor) is not something that can be controlled by the owner, but did have an impact on the quality of our visit.

Owner's Response: Aloha & thank you for your feedback and review. I am sorry about the negative experience with the smoking nearby. Our property actually prohibits smoking on the lanais, walkways, or within 20' of the buildings (per Hawaii state law) but from time to time there are people who disregard the rules, to the discomfort and detriment of neighboring condos. I spoke with the resident manager of the property and she did received complaints about smoking from a couple of other residents in that part of the building around the same time as your visit. It turned out to be a guest visiting an owner that was smoking on their lanai. As for the smoke smell in the stairwell that you mentioned, it is due to one specific unit in the basement where the tenants smoke inside (sadly not prohibited by our property rules) and the smoke smell does get into the stairwell. I typically use the other stairwell since our condo is in the middle between the two.

I am sorry also for the concern caused by our sending the directions and lockbox info so close to your arrival time. We routinely change the door code for security sake, and thus don't have the new code available weeks in advance. Also, from time to time we get info about property wide maintenance such as pest control or inspections, and want to make sure to get that info to our guests should it fall during their stay, so we send our arrival info closer to guests' check-in date so everything is up to date and current. I am sorry that it caused you undue stress, however.
I also apologize for the discomfort with the one bed mattress. Knowing people have different preferences we tried to get one a little firmer and one a little softer so that there would be a choice should people's preferences lay one way or the other. I'm glad that otherwise you found the condo clean and comfortable for your stay, and the location to be situated close to everything. I'm pleased that you did have a positive experience at the other place you stayed while on island, and hope overall your visit to Maui was pleasant and filled with great memories.

PERFECT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
It was a great place for our weekend getaway to Maui. We had a group of 6 and it slept all of us just fine. The unit was clean and had all the accessories we needed. The pool and hot tub were open to 10pm, although the hot tub was either way too hot or way too cold. Would definitely come back and stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! I am so glad you enjoyed your weekend visit to Maui, and that you all were comfortable during your stay in our condo. I am sorry the hot tub temperature was inconsistent. I will let the resident manager know, as that is maintained by the property and beyond my ability to assist with. I know from time to time in the mornings the hot tub is cold because the routinely drain it to clean, and the refilled water takes a couple of hours to get up to temperature. :)

Thanks for choosing our condo for your visit!

I did not have the great fortune of visiting Hawaii recently but have to rave about the thoughtful hospitality of this location's management, Louise.

My friend was visiting for her 30th birthday. I reached out to Louise to see if she'd be willing to put together a little welcome package as a surprise for my friend's arrival. I got a speedy and helpful response, gave her a price and some details about my friend. A few days later I was BLOWN AWAY when Lousie emailed me pictures and a full list of the amazing items she selected to greet my friend. Everything you could ever want or need for your first trip - and totally nailing my friend's taste and style.

Needless to say, my friend was thrilled, felt incredibly special and I felt great to be able to provide such love from far away. Seriously so awesome. Side note - my friend said the accommodations were fantastic and well-styled.

Thank you again Louise!

Owner's Response: Aloha Chelsea-

Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to help out with your birthday gift from across the ocean. We have always been open to providing the extra mile in service to our guests, from ideas of what to see, do, and eat on Maui, to arranging for tours, or grocery shopping for arrivals. This was a fun project to work on. It was great fun putting it all together and we are so glad that it made her birthday extra special, island style. Hopefully some day you both can come visit Maui together. We'd be happy have you as our guests.

PERFECT CONDO FOR YOUR MAUI ADVENTURES

  • 4 of 5
My friends and I recently stayed in Kihei for a week and this was the perfect place to use as a home base. The location is fantastic, a couple minute walk down the long driveway and you're at Kamaole III beach (do not miss hanging out on the large lawn there for the most incredible sunsets). The condo location offers you a perfect launching point for your adventures- it is close to great snorkeling spots and beaches south of Kihei and is it's easy to explore other parts of the island from there such as Lahaina and Hana. What really impressed us is that the condo has everything you need! We were so pleased to find it stocked with all of those things you would need at home- beach towels and chairs, cooler, kitchen gadgets, dish soap, spices and oil for cooking, cold beverages, etc, etc. Louise was a super host. She was extremely attentive and was really easy to communicate with. Also the place was spotless thanks to her diligent care. The only thing that I would suggest is that they include a larger table for dining. There is a patio table on the Lanai that seats only two (if you find yourself there you can often see whales breaching while you enjoy your coffee or happy hour) but there is not a place to sit at a table that would accommodate more then two. This was not a deal breaker for us though, we made do and will definitely return to stay at this terrific condo! Thanks Louise!

Owner's Response: Aloha Sara-

Thanks for the great review, and for being such wonderful guests. We truly appreciate your understanding about the sink drain repair in the second bathroom. (nothing like having it break just hours before you check in, right?) You left the place in great shape and I loved the photo of the rainbow from the lanai! We opted against a dining table initially due to space constraints, and went with the TV trays & bar seating instead. Not ideal for group dining, I know, but we are glad you were able to work it out just the same. We would love to have you back as our guest the next time your travels bring you back to Maui.

Much aloha!

NICE CONDO, GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
A friend and I were recently vacationing for a week in Maui and this was the perfect place to stay. This condo is nice, clean, and fully stocked with all necessities, including a dishwasher, in suite washer and dryer. The living space completely met our requirements; we each had our own bedroom and bathroom for privacy, there was never any need to wait to clean up when returning from the beach! The condo is located within walking distance of the beach/park and close to shops and restaurants. If you wish to venture on local transit, there is a bus stop just around the corner, and the cost of each bus ride is $2. We also found great convenience in access to parking for our car rental. The only small draw back during our stay was renos being done to the building, which we were not aware of until scaffolding went up along side our lanai the day after we arrived, but did not interfere in our stay. Definitely recommend and will return if opportunity presents itself! Mahalo!

So please you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for sharing the information about the convenience & proximity of the local bus, as I know many visitors would need to know that. I'll have to be sure to add details to our listing. :)

Sorry about the unexpected arrival of the painting crew's scaffolding. They were originally planning on painting another building but I was told the schedule changed to accommodate the prevailing winds (trying to stop over spray onto cars). Thank you for your gracious understanding of this property project.

We hope to host you again someday should your travels ever bring you back to Maui. Much aloha and happy holidays!

A GREAT CONDO IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect vacation rental for our needs. No longer will we stay in hotels on Maui. This condo was safe and secure. It had plenty of amenities including: washer/dryer, dishwasher, Netflix, flat screen tv's, lanai, and even beach chairs with built in coolers! Plus, a boogie board and plenty of baby gear: stroller, crib, and toys. The property manager was superb and friendly, tending to any need. This condo helped make our stay wonderful. Highly recommended!
