About Jessica Carpenter

Hello! My name is Jessica, and I grew up and still live in the small Eastern Washington town of Chewelah. There are about 2000 people in Chewelah, and I like to think our town is one of the world's best kept secrets. I love the four seasons; I love swimming, boating, hiking and camping in the summer, and skiing, sledding, and snow shoeing in the winter. I went to pharmacy school at Washington State University and graduated in 2010. My husband, Mike, was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma in April 2011. I left my job as a full-time pharmacist to take care of him and he passed away less than 6 months later in September 2011 at the age of 27. He was the best thing that ever happened to me, and our 8 years together made me the luckiest woman alive. After he passed away, I took more time off work and traveled around Hawaii, Australia, New York, St. Lucia in the Caribbean, the East Coast, Tanzania, and Amsterdam. Most of my time traveling was spent alone. Maui held a special place in my heart, and I made it a goal to own a condo there that I could use as a second home as well as an investment. This goal was realized when I purchased this condo in August 2012, at 28 years old. If you're interested in reading my blog, you can find it at www.myfeetwillleadme.com

Jessica Carpenter purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jessica Carpenter chose Kihei

On my second trip to Maui, I looked at a number of condos, but honestly, a studio was the only thing I could afford. This unit was within my price range and showed potential. With little hesitation, I purchased it. I didn't come back to Maui to see it again for 5 months, at which point I panicked because it was in worse shape than I remembered. I was only scheduled to be in Maui for two weeks, and I had my work cut out for me. With no experience in remodeling myself, I was blessed with the help of so many friends and family living in Maui who were willing to donate their time and experience to my project. I met a lot of people, learned a lot, and had fun in the process, but it was a lot of work and stress. The two week deadline proved to be insurmountable, so I returned to Maui about a month later to finish furnishing and decorating the condo. I feel very happy with the outcome, and am thrilled to have accomplished such a goal.

What makes this condo unique

What makes this property unique, is I had a vision and it turned out exactly as I imagined. There's something about Hawaii that makes me feel like I need less in life. A space that is comfortable, somewhere to sleep, eat and shower, and somewhere to store stuff. That's all I really need. For me, the space is perfect for all that is needed in Maui. I designed the interior of the condo to be sophisticated and inspire a sense of adventure. I hope you feel inspired by the space, but mostly by the way of life in Maui.

Great little condo

  • 4 of 5

Condo is modern and nicely decorated. It is compact but fine for two person. You have pretty much everything you require for your stay. You require a car at this location, although it is only a 1 mile walk to the nearest retail area which has shops, restaurants etc. The condo complex is quiet and well maintained with a swimming pool, bbq area and laundry. The condo is a perfect location for travellers who want to go out and explore. This condo is not suitable for those without a car. The condo does have some funny rules though such as no clothes to be dried on the patio which made it difficult to dry wet suits and swimming costumes etc. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it

Owner's Response: Thanks Stephanie! I'm glad you had a good trip and thank you for your review. And yes, I agree, you should be able to dry wet clothes on the patio (and personally, I wouldn't care if you did), I just have to repeat the condo association's rules. Again, thank you for staying and I hope you return in the future!

First getaway in Maui

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our first experience in Maui, especially knowing that we always could run back <home> to this lovely place. It was a perfect location. We could choose to do ANYTHING from here in Kihei, be beach bums on Big Beach, explore the long but beautiful road to Hana, visiting unique Paia, discovering the major tourist area of Lahaina, the sunrise on Haleakalā National Park, whale watching from the Whale Sanctuary...you name it and we could drive there from this location with ease.

We also greatly appreciated all the information given to us by Jessica. It was great that we could communicate with Jessica, she was fast at answering any questions we had before and during our stay. The only <bad> thing about our stay, and I use the word bad LIGHTLY, was that we had trouble with the mattress of the bed. Not the biggest fan of memory foam but definitely could be due to the first night excitement.

Otherwise, it was a great cozy place that will forever be apart of our first experience in Maui.

Mahalo again Jessica and we hope to stay here again! :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! I'm glad you experienced many adventures during your time in Maui. I totally understand the memory foam issue. I've had some good and bad experiences with it myself. I guess I would suggest to future guests to just take the memory foam mattress topper off in the future if it presents a problem. But again, thank you for choosing to stay at my place and for writing a review!

Absolutely lovely place to stay, super clean, cute and comfy. The studio had everything we needed for our vacation. The location is perfect, great area and easy to get to all parts of the island.

It worked perfectly for us. Thanks so much Jessica for everything and for your prompt response.

Super friendly owner!

Mahalo!

Thanks for a great place and an affordable rate!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at your place and we love Kihei Bay Surf. The pool and barbecue area were great to use after a day of hiking and beaching. The staff at KBS really made us feel welcome and the condo owner was great, even when we forgot to return her parking pass...thank you :). The accommodations were good and the owner was friendly and professional. she promptly and effectively communicated with us throughout our stay and rental process. My hubby and I are tall so some things were a little awkward, like the height of the mirrors, the kitchen table, and the over stove hood...the shower was nice and tall, though :). All in all, it was a great place to stay and it lived up to our expectations! Thanks! This place is certainly on our list for future travels to Maui.

Excellent landing

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, quiet, clean and comfortable bed. Sweet condo right across from a small public beach, and the Whale foundation next door had a lovely porch perfect for early morning coffee. Jessica was so nice to let us check in early because of the hurricane, She was very communicative and helpful. We would stay there again.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This condo is small but cozy, perfect for one or two at most. The best part of the condo is the location away from all the tourism yet so close to the beach. We fell in love with the Kihei Area and it was a small drive from Wailea were we attended a Luau at the Grand Wailea and visited the clearest waters at Big Beach. (Be careful with the Shore Break and BIG Waves)

The condo has a pool which we were able to have all to ourselves a majority of the time. They were remodeling a few units while we were there so I bet the property is going to increase in value soon! Honestly if you want something budget friendly but don't want to sacrifice comfort this is the place for you. The bed was so comfortable we hibernated half the trip, which was alright if you're not out swimming, snorkeling or surfing you have this cozy place to shower and sleep.

The condo also had all the amenities to cook; pots, pans, dishes, full size fridge they didn't miss anything from what I saw not even the salt / pepper / spices.

We loved our stay and hope that if you're looking to stay in a good comfortable area you check out this property. It literally a walk across to the beach, which we also enjoyed to ourselves the week we stayed.

Mahalo Jessica!
