We stayed at Dan's condo for 5 nights. We can say that it easily exceeded our expectations. Better than what pictures show.

Bedrooms : Both bedrooms are nice size and have nice ocean front views as does living room. Morning tea on master bedroom lanai was perfect to kick start our days followed by beach walk.

Bathrooms : Nothing great about bathrooms but have everything that you need to have shower after long beach days.

Living room : Decent size and plenty of furniture for a family of 4-6 people.

Kitchen : Excellent. It was well stocked.

Other : I liked the idea of extra air mattress Dan had arranged. It came very handy. Also, lots of snorkeling equipment, beach towels, chairs were nice to have. Kids were very happy with beach at few hundred feet ( as were we :-).

Overall, we had comfortable and memorable stay at his condo and would gladly come back on our next trip.

Amazing views - but lack of responsiveness really put a damper on it

  • 3 of 5

I was hoping to say that we loved our stay here in Dan's condo. I could have been that way but lack of responsiveness when there were some things that needed fixed in the condo put a damper on it. We were there for 6 nights and our room the main bedroom never did get fixed. Having to clean up after the repair guy did fix the 2nd bathroom was inexcusable. It took 2 days for the repair guy to get there in the first place and then he ignored what needed to be done in the other bedroom. We were told that they just had a terrible tenant, well I guess we paid the price for that. This was all after I informed Dan immediately of the issues. The plus to the condo was the amazing views. We enjoyed our time on Maui, its too bad my first experience with using VRBO/Homeaway couldn't have gone better. Dan did credit us back the cleaning fee but not until I had to follow up again with him as he had forgot.

Owner's Response: To our guests. This guest had every right to the review she wrote. I am ashamed to say I dropped the ball during her stay. I take great pride that our guest can write great reviews after a wonderful stay. Its not an excuse but I was severely ill and was not paying enough attention. Please know that I make every attempt to respond quickly to guests requests. again my apologies to Connie and her family. Dan

Nice condo with great facilities

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this condo. The ocean views were beautiful and the sunsets were breathtaking. The condo is really well supplied with everything you would find in your own home and more. Ample towels, kitchen appliances, water gear. Netflix included. Laundry on same level. Reserved car spot nearby. Pool is good enough. Only negatives: some upkeep needed: towel rails and toilet roll holders falling off walls. Not a fan of slate floors that are hard to clean. No broom supplied and vacuum ineffective. We bought a broom and left it there. Relatively small things though in the scheme of how great this condo is. Highly recommended.

Nice but not spectacular

  • 4 of 5

The unit did have an ocean view and looked out over the common areas which was nice. There was a large sea turtle that came up on the beach every evening which was fun to see. I didn't think the unit was particularly clean but certainly not filthy either. Areas behind doors were not addressed and although the slate floor was nice, it was definitely dirty as evidenced by our socks. The slate floor was also poorly installed and is uneven. My friend stubbed her toe twice. The two bed rooms were decent size and the beds were very comfortable. Each bedroom had it's own bath area which was a plus. I didn't enjoy the room my husband and I had because there was no real privacy between the bath area and the bedroom. One other thing that really bothered me was the bath towels. I think they were older and definitely looked dingy. I expected nicer for the money but they weren't a deal breaker. The kitchen was stocked nicely. The unit was big enough for the four of us to enjoy comfortably. The air conditioning was difficult to regulate. It seemed super cold or uncomfortably warm so we went with cold. One thing safety wise that concerned us was the key pad entry. You could easily tell which numbers were used, they might want to change the code up. Finally, I didn't realize the laundry wasn't in the unit. There were pay washers and dryers located on the floor near the elevators. The location was okay. It was a little bit of a hike to get to shopping and take out but was only about a 5 minute drive. The front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. The check in and check out was quick and smooth. All in all it was a nice unit.

Pleasant stay. Older bldg. but owner, Dan Huffman, updating interior. Would stay again.

  • 4 of 5

The unit was spacious. Older bldg. but owner has updated kitchen. Beautiful view of ocean from the lanai but for old timers a bit of a walk. The only disappointment was the lady at the front desk was only there for a limited time during the day. When returning to Maui would rebook the unit. Thanks Dan for being such a honest person!

Amazing location and amneties

  • 5 of 5

This condo is awesome. Love the second floor location; easy walk up and parking available. Kitchen has everything needed and absolutely loved the closet full of beach accessories (chairs, umbrellas, etc.) We even added sandpail and toys for the kiddos. My son loved the pool and kiddy pool. We loved the access to the beach and how close everything is in Kihei. I'd absolutely look to rent this condo again when we return to Maui in the future.

North Kihei is a fantastically convenient central location for seeing all of Maui. If you really want to experience the whole island with the least amount of driving this is the place for you. But at the same time north Kihei is away from all the high traffic high congestion areas.
