Definitely Not Newly Remodeled

  • 1 of 5

Our stay in this unit was disappointing at best. Upon arrival we found it had not been cleaned and presented as very old and dingy. We immediately contacted the rental agency and the owner to request someone to properly clean the unit. As the Owner had not replied in a timely manner (not the first time), the Rental Agency did and suggested using their team to clean the unit and they did an excellent job. This place absolutely needs some serious attention, especially the kitchen and secondary bathroom to name a few. Living room furniture is old and needs cleaning. The tile floors, flat screen TV, and granite counter top may have been renovated in the past 4 years, but that’s about it. We expected to walk into a clean updated unit as described and it was quite the contrary. The location and view are wonderful. If you can put up with old and dingy for this price then this place will meet your needs. We cannot in good faith recommend this unit due to its condition. However the location, grounds, pool, restaurant etc. are all excellent.

Owner's Response: We strive to make every stay at our property the very best it can be. Unfortunately some individuals are very difficult to please and seek out unwarranted discounts. As vacation rental property owners, we are very familiar with folks who are seeking the best possible deals and sometimes do not consider the other side of the coin as we depend on the income from our rental properties. We would love to give deep discounts but if we did, we couldn't keep this property going. Because of that, some people will get upset and become vindictive, which can result in an over-exaggerated negative review such as this one. We take much pride in our Maui property, but this is NOT a hotel room but rather a small apartment style condo that lets you prepare meals and do laundry as needed, all while enjoying a gorgeous view on one of the best pieces of land on the island. To be fair, we do understand there was an issue with the cleaning service and it has been dealt with appropriately.

Condo Description/Pictures Misleading - Not Newly Renovated!

  • 1 of 5

We recently stayed in this condo and feel compelled to relay our displeasure with the condition we found it in.

Even though we arrived late at night we could tell immediately the rooms were not clean and the place itself dated and run down. The following morning we contacted the rental agency to request someone to properly clean the unit so we could unpack and settle in. The person who arrived spent little time there and primarily cleaned the floors though other areas were in need particularly the bathrooms.

The place requires an overhaul - a deep clean and complete renovation. Dated is one thing, cleanliness quite another. We expected more for the money we paid. The saving grace was the location.

Owner's Response: We understand that there have been issues with the cleaning crew and the situation has now been dealt with appropriately. As far as the unit being "dated"; this is a matter of personal opinion. Also, one must keep in mind that beach/tropical decor does not always scream "modern". We would hope that our guests spend as much time as possible on the beach and enjoying all of Maui's splendors as generally this is what our guests visit for! Mahalo nui loa!

We had 3 adults stay in this condo and it was perfect! The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook meals in. Bathrooms are clean & come with a blow dryer & extra beach towels. It is nicely decorated with very comfortable beds. (Pillows could have been a little softer). We spent every morning walking the beach South to Wailea or North to downtown, all accessable from walking on the beach, just steps from the condo. This condo has one of the best beaches in Kehei, private parking spot, on site laundry room, 5 Palms restaurant, deli, sports shop for other rentals and much more! We would highly recommend this rental for couples, freinds, families up to a party of six. We have stayed at other condos that were less expensive, but you had to walk a few blocks and cross S. Kehei Road to get to the beach which is not very convenient. Thanks Joyce, we will be back! Vikki, Richard, Randy

We had an amazing stay in this unit. The location is fabulous; steps to a beautiful, quiet, sandy beach with easy access into the water (no steep drop-off). Beach was fantastic for all ages & snorkling was great right in front of the building. Water is calm enough in the mornings for kids & inexperienced snorklers to feel comfortable. Pool was great for the afternoons when water was rougher & in the evenings. The five palms restaurant was great for happy hour & the occasional meal. The property itself is beautifully maintained & there are paddleboard & kayak rentals right in the building. The unit itself is very comfortable, clean, nicely decororated & the kitchen well equipped. The lanai was amazing (we ate nearly every meal out there) & facing away from the sun & wind makes it usable all day long. The large screen doors allow lots of fresh air & we kept them open during our entire stay (falling asleep & waking to the sounds of the ocean was amazing). The unit is in an ideal location in the building where you can hear the ocean at night but not the noise from the restaurant. Beach chairs in the unit were very handy as lounge chairs from the building cannot be taken onto the beach. Several boogie boards, pool noodles etc also available in the unit added to the fun. Property is in a great location & provides easy access to all the places we wanted to visit. Owners were easy to deal with & I would highly recommend this unit. I look forward to returning!

Awesome views, great condo and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were a little hesitant as this was our first time booking accomodations through Home Away but we would definitely do it again. Joyce was very easy to work with, provided us with lots of local recommendations regarding restaurants, activities, etc. which was helpful. The condo was beautifully decorated and the views from the lanai were awesome. It was spacious enough for 6 of us. Plenty of boogie boards, etc. We loved falling asleep to the surf.The beach was wonderful no crossing the street to get to it and and the hotel staff was very helpful. We were close to so many beaches and actvities, but our beach was not busy like some in Wailea.We loved our condo and stay at Mana Kai Maui! Thanks!

All the great Maui stuff is close by. Play golf from Makena to Kapalua. Relax the day away at still hidden 'Big Beach'. Hit all the great local restaurants including the Five Palms restaurant, a gorgeous open-air restaurant with amazing food, located in the building, or Sarentos, a five star Italian restaurant located next door. Maybe stay forever? This has the best view of the best beach in all of Maui. Come and enjoy!
