About Diana Rodrigues

Our small Maui condo, isn't luxurious, and if you want room service, our place isn't for you! But if you are budget minded and would rather spend your money on Golfing, surfing, snorkeling, whale watching, dinner cruises, lauas, shopping, then our place is for you. Clean, comfortable, cozy and affordable. We feel comfortable in our little Maui paradise as you will.

Diana Rodrigues purchased this studio in 2003

Why Diana Rodrigues chose Maui

Timing was right in 2003 to purchase our condo in Maui. We fell in love with Maui on our first trip in 1999. Our second trip was in 2003, we rented in this complex and liked it. People were so friendly and helpful. There were several units for sale and we knew what they looked like, as they all look the same, studios, it is just how you decorate that makes the place homey and comfortable. So we purchased ours while on vacation.

What makes this studio unique

The complex is small, not massive and the people who live there are very friendly/helpful. You meet people from all over the world out at the barbacue! It is fun to talk to people while you are cooking your dinner. We often share what we are barbacuing with people we meet and talk to. The kids swim and the adults barbacue and talk.

I also love the feel of Kihei/Maui. Just a feeling I get when I arrive on the island. Some call it Mana! Not sure what it is called, but I love the feeling I have when I am there. And relaxed! When you are on the islands, it is ALOHA time. The locals are not in a hurry and it takes us about 2 days to wind down from our fast paced California lifestyle. But then we are in the spirit of the islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Diana,



I don’t know how to thank you enough for making your comfortable and immaculate studio available to me and others to enjoy while vacationing in Maui.



I hesitate to rave too much, as often people and businesses will raise rates if their particular services or product is much in demand, but I would be remiss if I did not tell you how much I enjoyed my stay in Unit 113 Kihei Bay Surf.



Most important to me, the unit was immaculately clean, and I guess you have Jennifer to thank for doing such a good job for you. Out of appreciation I tried to leave the unit as clean as possible, without doing a professional cleaning myself.



Important to me, also, were the fact that the unit had plenty of light, particularly in the living room/bedroom area. I read a lot and loved the fact that there was sufficient light for reading as well as plenty of light overall.



As a “budget traveler”, I cooked all but one meal in the studio, and I found everything I needed for preparing my meals; just like I might have been at home.



I don’t watch much TV, but appreciated the fact that you provide a nice size television with excellent reception and plenty of cable channels available for those times when I wished to watch news, the visitor channel or other programming.



Also, I had asked you about the bed, and as you stated, I found the bed to be just perfect; not too soft nor too hard. Your choice of sheets and bedspread felt very comforting and homey.



Somehow you have created an atmosphere in your home where one feels immediately “at home” when first entering. I feel that you and I may be alike in many ways.



In future visits to Maui, I hope your unit will be available to me again. I see that you are booked up way in advance, but I am hoping that if I am able to visit again next May, (or maybe sooner) that your unit will be available. As long as I am able to visit Maui, it would be my wish to continue to enjoy your hospitality.



I will be happy to leave a much shorter version of this message in the guest comments, if you wish.



Mahalo,



Penny M.

Hi Diana,

Thanks so much for all your help as we made plans to visit Maui. We found your condo to be clean and to have everything we needed for our stay. The bed was very comfortable- very important for aging bones. And there was a great beach for long walks, watching for whales nearby. We spent a whole week snorkeling the beaches to the south of Kehei and loved being so close to them. I was impressed when you e-mailed us before our arrival to see when we'd be arriving, in an attempt to allow the folks who were staying there before us to stay later since they had a late flight. Not many folks would bend over backwards, changing cleaning schedules to help in this way. We definitely have your condo on our list of places to recommend to friends and to hopefully return to some day soon.

Small and homey - loved the property and the slight separation of the entry and bathroom area.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Diana's homey little studio in Kihei. The size was perfect for my wife and I - we stayed for 10 nights on our babymoon. The pool area was perfect and we made use of the excellent BBQ facilities more than once!

Location was great! We liked being in the middle of everything - not too far to Lahaina, Wailea, Kahului or just the main strip of beaches in Kihei.

Diana was very accommodating and helpful the whole booking process! Would definitely recommend to friends and hopefully coming back one day!

Thanks Diana!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

We are a young couple traveling on a budget and had a fabulous three night stay in this condo. Very clean, very comfortable, and exactly as advertised. Diana was AMAZING about being in touch before hand with a lot of professional details and help, I felt like I was well-briefed and taken care of. The beach chairs were great and we watched a movie on the DVD player, perfect sized space to feel like you are at home, the bed was very comfortable, and clearly great pains are taken to keep the place clean. Since the bathroom is around the corner it also gives more privacy than a hotel room and it was great to have the full sized fridge and temperature control, and the beach right across the street! I could not be happier. We stayed in an airbnb afterward as well as a Lahaina Resort and still requested to come back to this one instead. I have been spoiled for what a vrbo should be like! The snorkeling was also literally 9 minutes down the road, great for an early push off. Thanks for the care you take.

Great Studio Near the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Maui. The place is exactly as described. It was perfect for our needs. We just wanted a place to make breakfast and sleep. We had no issues the 5 nights we were there. We would recommend this property to anyone who wants to be near the beach but on a budget.

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo!!! It is a studio, but is very spacious. The bed is very comfortable and the condo is very clean. Loved all the storage that this condo has as well. The lanai is quite spacious and we ate all our meals outside. There are beach chairs available to use which came in very handy. The pool area is very large and well taken care of. Appeared to us that the whole unit might have been recently painted because was so clean. Loved the location as well and is right across the street from the beach and the Whale Foundation. Dealing with the owners was a breeze!! Will being staying here again on our next trip!!
