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

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 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.

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!

Average studio - good for the basics. Very comfortable bed!
This place is best for the type of traveller that wants a good nights sleep and to have a small kitchen available, but not to spend a lot of time at the place. It was far enough away from the road such that it was very quiet. Property manager was helpful. Tennis court is not very good in the complex but there are others in Kihei that can be used instead. I would recommend it to others.

GREAT LOCATION, ADORABLE DECOR!

  • 5 of 5
I loved Jessica's condo. It was clean, really nicely decorated, and everything that we needed. The location was fantastic. Because it was so central, basically anywhere you want to go on the island is a 20 minute drive. The retail/restaurant area down the street was also fun. We went to the Kihei Caffe every morning, and I am definitely still missing their papaya delight!

SMALL, BUT QUIET, CLEAN AND GREAT VALUE FOR MAUI

  • 5 of 5
As a studio, Jessica's place should be compared to a hotel room with a small kitchen. If you need a full-size condo this isn't going to be satisfactory. But as a base camp for a single person exploring Maui it worked very well. It would be good for a cozy couple too; forget trying to cram more than two people in here. The main room has been updated comfortably, the bathroom and kitchen were pretty basic but perfectly acceptable and the whole place was very clean. The Kihei Bay Surf complex is certainly dated but it's well-maintained. I liked that this unit is tucked toward the back of the complex, so no noise at all from the rather busy street, and parking was always available literally within a few steps of the door, no stairs or elevator to negotiate with luggage or groceries or beach gear. (The busy street is no fun to walk on; you definitely need a car as the closest commercial area is more than a mile away and the way Kihei is stretched out you'll want to go to restaurants and beaches farther than that.) Before and during my stay Jessica responded almost immediately to my e-mailed questions. I can't go to Maui every year, but I'd definitely look this place up next time.

BUDGET FRIENDLY AND CLEAN

  • 4 of 5
For the price and location we couldn't have asked for more. It was great having a kitchen while in Maui and Kihei is great location. We watched amazing sunsets in Kihei and only had to walk across the street. This is great place for anyone who is on a budget and doesn't plan on spending a lot of time at home. We spend most of our trip hiking and exploring what this beautiful island has to offer.
