I live in New York City, but have been coming to Maui for the last 18 years. My friends ended up purchasing a home on the island and spend 6 months a year in Paradise. My husband and I came every year him for a month and I was able to sneak away for 10 days... Finally we purchased our condo. I loved it at first sight... but it needed some TLC. After a lot of TLC, one thing lead to another and the next thing you know I completely gutted the unit. It's fantastic and we love it. I spent 35 years in the fashion industry and I currently sell Real Estate in NYC. Ron is a former NYC policeman and retired from the NYFD- fire department.
Joan purchased this condo in 2007
This property is great... centrally located. If it's raining somewhere on the island chances are it's sunny in Kihei. The unit has great light and fabulous views, too. The sunsets are also fabulous and we enjoy watching them from the backyard, lanai or the hot tub. We are close to our favorite beaches in Wailea too.
"We enjoyed our stay here on Maui, as always. We were here to celebrate our 10th anniversary and also as a "pre-deployment" vacation for my husband.
Your condo is very nice and we were quite comfortable here!
We did most of the tourist type stuff like Hana, whale watches, surfing and zip line adventures. After surfing I found out that Dr. Candy at Kihei chiropratic is pretty darn good in case that helps anyone else while they are here. Tomorrow its home to Wisconsin and 2 degrees F, oh boy!
Our stay was to be 7 nights. We picked this one as it boasted an ocean view and beach access too. My husband was quite disappointed as the view was over 80% parking lot but there was a glimpse of the ocean so technically it was an ocean view. The beautiful picture on the website 'view from the living room' certainly seems suspect - perhaps was shot with a telephoto. The beach is a long trek across the grounds, probably a good couple of hundred yards.
The unit itself was quite adequate - although again, the website claims it to be 'completely renovated' perhaps, but not in recent years. The air conditioner worked well and there were lots of towels and even snorkels and beach equipment - but we didn't use it. The bed was comfy but the bathroom could use a redo. After a couple of days my husband became so disappointed with the lack of view and beach access, we inquired if we could possible check out early after 4 nights. He had connected with friends up island and wanted to go there for our last 3 nights. And so we contacted Joan and she graciously agreed to allow us to do so even though "the contract" apparently has restrictions on this. We were so impressed with her cooperation we thought we would certainly be giving her a 'thumbs up' review. Then the communication began to break down, first regarding the amount of credit we were to get (We were to get 3 nights but she offered 2 until we pointed the math out to her) and then about the condition in which we left the apartment became an issue and is still ongoing. Apparently the management company reported to her that we were filthy people. Yes those exact words. WHAT! we were astonished and offended. What on earth is she talking about? Then we got an email saying she was going to charge an additional $100 because we were filthy. We have never been so insulted in all our experience as travellers. We asked for proof of this terrible accusation, but to date we haven't seen anything ....we went over and over in our minds what she could possibly mean? Granted, we used the bathroom and shower, we dirtied dishes but did load up the dishwasher. Granted, we did NOT make the bed and my husband left the towels in the bathtub as this is usual practice at hotels? Were we supposed to do more? Perhaps mop and vacuum? So besides feeling totally violated and depressed about or 'Hawaiian Experience' we are also out an additional $100.
If we EVER use VRBO again, we will take photos of everything and cover our tracks to
We are very happy with our stay. We loved the kiddy pool since we have our 3 yo daughter. The location is great. Very close to everything from the grocery store, gas station, restaurants, Ulelani shave ice. The owner and management were very responsive and helpful. We definitely would consider using the property in the future.
Ice cold a/c
Big tv with DVD player
Great for two people
Kitchen was lacking some of the basics (i.e. Non stick pan(s), limited quantities of eating utensils)
Shower water temperature cycles from warm, hot, to cold, back to warm.
In a perfect world the shower could use a remodel. Didn't seem to match the level of the rest of the condo.
Beautiful island escape with a perfectly appointed kitchen, allowing us to enjoy many meals in. We enjoyed coffee, homemade breakfast and other delicious home cooked meals on the lanai!
Lovely decorations are up to date and themed perfectly throughout the condo. The comfortable king size bed, bedroom ceiling fan, cold A/C and the large flat screen TV in the living room made for cozy indoor relaxation. The grounds are beautiful with gas BBQ grills, pool, sand volleyball court and a short walk across the lawn to the ocean allowing gorgeous sunset photo ops. There were beach chairs and some other beach equipment in the condo to assist in making our stay wonderful!
The condo was on the parking lot side of the complex, allowing views of both the ocean and the mountain. While the view includes the parking lot, this worked out ok, as we were on the quiet side of the complex. Our friends that had nicer views overlooking the courtyard and pool area also had to deal with a lot of courtyard noise from festivities below. Our lanai was quiet in the evenings, providing a beautiful and peaceful ambiance.
The only additions we would suggest would be luggage stands for our suitcases, a fan or someway to move air in the living room as it gets hot with the sliding door open, and some Hawaiian themed CDs. We ended up using our phones with Pandora for music, which is a shame with all the great entertainment technology provided.
We were surprised and disappointed that the complex allows large groups of (non resident) families outside the complex to use the bbq area and pool, most nights it was hard to find room to bbq before dark and the pool was very crowded.
Other units had much more hands on owners, some even called during Tropical Storm Darby and included an Emergency kit, ours did not, which is fine. We're self sufficient people. I did enjoy the nice amenities and the proximity to the elevator and parking spot. Other than the somewhat disappointing view, (the one picture from the balcony has the parking lot cropped out) it was a beautiful condo. We did not have a great experience booking through VRBO so we will probably book directly through an owner next time.
All in all, We would definitely rent this condo again!
Our overall experience was great. The condo was well-stocked and comfortable, with plenty of space for our family of 3. We appreciated having a concierge on site at the condo complex to help with reservations and recommendations. Joan was very flexible about allowing us early entry to the condo. The location is great - very convenient to everything you'll need. It was our first trip to the island and I definitely think Kihei was the right choice because of its central location.
One thing we did realize is that the layout of the condo complex - two buildings in a loose V shape - creates a wind tunnel between the two buildings, which is right where the pool is. One day we were convinced it was windy everywhere in Kihei, but then realized the windiest spot was the pool, and the entry to the 6th floor condo! Other than that, it's a great deal and I recommend it!
Joan's condo if perfect for a couple. If you are looking for easy access to Kihei's restaurants, and walk- out accessibility to the beach, pool, hot tub, and grill area, then this is a great choice. The unit is newly renovated and clean, and we loved being on the 4th floor where the ocean breeze cooled the condo in the evening. The Lanai was private enough for morning coffee in our robes. You cannot beat this unit for the price, and Joan is wonderful to work with. Our stay went off without a hitch!
