Fabulous view, perfect location - older suite
Dealt with Ron via email - booking was fast, easy and efficient. Check-in was effortless, just grabbed keys from the lockbox, parked, and we were done. View from condo is incredible and won't disappoint. Condo building is older but well-kept, has loads of parking and is convenient to everything on island. Elevator could use some repair (horrible squeaking noises!) but we used the stairs as this is on the 3rd floor.
Suite was very clean, but is a bit older and could use some cosmetic touch-ups (lots of paint scuffs, worn carpets and plaster dings, etc.). That said, we had lots of supplies - towels, sheets, blankets, etc. - lots of spices and condiments were left for us to use, and the beach mats and chairs were appreciated. We never did find the boogie board, though. More paper towels / toilet paper would have been nice - we bought our own as we ran out after the 2nd day. Loved the in-suite washer/dryer - small, but works for holiday stuff! Free calls, wifi etc. was very convenient.
Pull out couch is very saggy and not suitable for adults but is fine for young kids - our 9 year old loved it. Main bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was spotless and a bit more modern than the rest of the suite. Lanai was fantastic and we spent a lot of time out there. Suite was fairly roomy for 3 but would be a bit crowded for 4 adults.
Location is very windy but we were expecting that, having stayed nearby previously. This unit is fairly well sheltered but the bedroom did get a bit noisy with the wind. We never had to use the A/C because the cross breeze is all you need to keep the unit comfortable.
Pool and hot tub were clean and we used both a couple of times. Pool is quite small, a bit cold and had several broken / missing tiles which made us a bit nervous about getting cut on them. Small sandy beach is great for beachcombing, although not the best location for swimming, but sugar beach further down was fine.
This is a great spot to stay if you want a home base from which to explore both Lahaina / Kanaapali and Kihei / Wailea beaches. Shops etc. are within walking distance (not much selection for groceries etc., better off going to Kihei for anything like that). Would absolutely stay here again, great value for the budget traveler, and unless you're spending a lot of time in your suite, the decor isn't really all that much of a concern and would be an easy fix for what is excellent value for an oceanfront condo.
