We agree with all the good comments from previous visitors. The location of the condo is superb, and Ron really does take care of everything. What is NEW, is a complete remodeling of the entire unit. All new appliances, new cabinets, new furniture, new bed, beautiful new tile. We highly recommend this as the perfect place to stay on Maui.
This is our fifth year in a row coming to Hawaii, and we usually go to Kauai. However, we came to Maui this time for a wedding. Maui is more expensive, but this place was a good deal and as others have said - Ron was great to work with.
This condo complex is great because it is small, quiet, and has a wonderful view. It has an enclosed lawn which was great for our 18 month old son to run around on, and the pool was fun for him too. The views are amazing and the wildlife watching is out of this world!
The room was just perfect for us. Washer and dryer (THANK GOD!), dishwasher (HALLELUJAH!), and full size fridge and freezer. Everything was very clean and nicely set up. I will echo the comments of others - all the toilet paper, paper towels, soap, etc. that you could need which is SO nice. We did a lot of cooking in the room and had a very easy time of it. We did a lot of laundry and also had an easy time of it.
Overall this place was awesome and we plan to book again if returning to Maui in the future (and I think we will). Don't listen to the comments about this place not being updated, etc. It has a nice fresh feel, and you shouldn't be spending a lot of time in your room staring at any chipped paint, anyway! Lol :) Thanks for a great stay!
This was my husband and my second trip to Maui, first for our sons, aged 14 and 15. The unit was perfect, and Ron was great to work with. He was friendly and helpful. Our stay was 12 days and was our first VRBO venture. I have decided this is the way to go! It was so nice, after a long day of exploration, to come back to a place that felt like home! We could see the whales every morning, as well as the sea turtles in the water just in front of the right side of the beach. I would absolutely rent this unit again!
It was very a very good experience woking with Ron; via email or phone. He was very informative, helpful, and flexible. The view of the condo was breath taking; right on the ocean- we could see whales from our balcony, enjoy the sunrise view every morning, watch sea turtles on the beach right in front of the condo, and have the calming sound of ocean waves. The condo is very well maintained- the manager , Darren, is very nice and helpful (even gave us very helpful tips about popular sightseeing places.)
We particularly liked the location; it was 10 minutes drive to the busy tourist area of Kihei while, back to codo, you could just relax on your balcony where there is no noise of cars/crowd !
The unit is generously equipped with what you need to spend a week or more with family( kids); supplies, dishes, etc. A wonderful place to stay for a relaxing vacation!
Ron was easy to work with, he provided all the paper products. The unit is older and has not been updated, but for the price, it was ok. Everything worked, the toilet flushed, the drains drained, the washer and dryer also performed. The hideaway couch needs to be cleaned, the upholstery was tacky to say the least. The five chairs in the unit although sturdy enough need to be cleaned as well. All were dirty. Even though the unit has a 180 view of the Pacific, I would not rent this unit again. The reason being is the unit is directly over the pool and spa. At times it was very noise and being right over the pool infringed on your privacy when you are on your lanai.If you do not share these these concerns, then renting it might work for you. Lastly the unit was stocked with all the basics and the managers, a husband and wife team called Darren and Sharlee were super. I had one problem with people smoking on the lanai immediately under me and it was handled promptly.
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.
