Great location, beautiful neighbourhood and condo well-maintained

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with two teens, the size of the condo was just perfect. The neighbourhood is secure, near everything you need. The property was clean and well-maintained. A beautiful beach is at a walking distance. I would definitively recommend this property to any family going to Maui.

Thank you Stephen for letting us stay in your wonderful condo.

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for sharing your home during our vacation it was exactly as advertised. It was well equipped for our needs. Nice and close to the pool and beaches. The beach equipment came in quite handy. We had everything we needed for our trip. Lanai with the BBQ was excellent and lots of space for everyone. The owner was very quick to respond to all our questions and made the arrival and departure very easy. We liked the restaurant recommendations. Monkey Pod was very good. Thanks for the great time.

Comfy Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were exceptional. It was well stocked and was even equipped with electronics, i.e. printer and iPod docking station. The location was perfect for a family get-together and conveniently located within walking distance to the beach, shops, and pool on premises was nice.

A perfect home base in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this impressive condominium! The unit itself was very clean and well maintained with all sorts of conveniences such as some cooking essentials (spices, oil, vinegar), coolers, beach towels and body surfing boards for the beach, a washer/dryer and even an extra propane tank for all the BBQing that we did on the large, comfortable Lanai! The complex itself is very well looked after and the pool made for a great place to relax later in the afternoon after a day at the beach. There are beautiful walking paths beachside nearby and the beach is just a short walk from the condo. Make sure you check out the Five Palms for Happy Hour about a 5 minute drive away. We would highly recommend this home for your next family getaway to Maui!

Relaxing Family Vacation with Great BBQ Evenings

  • 5 of 5

The unit is spacious, bright and clean, with a big lanai and a Weber BBQ.

We had delicious meals every night thanks to the Weber BBQ! We bought very fresh fish to BBQ from the South Maui Fish Company in Kihei. When they were sold out, our second choice was usually Times Supermarket in Kihei, which has good prices for fish...just make sure you check the "sell by" date on the fish there as they don't necessarily put out fresh fish every day.

The parking spot is conveniently located just steps from the unit's door, which makes it easy to transfer groceries, scuba gear and beach stuff from the car to the unit.

The unit comes with everything you'll need, including an ample supply of beach towels and paper towels. The housekeeper Simone was very quick to respond to our requests.

The unit gets a great breeze when you open the numerous doors and windows. We did not turn on the air conditioner even once.

From the lanai you get a great view of the grounds and a decent view of the ocean and mountains. From the high lookout overlooking the pool, you can watch the sun dip right into the Pacific during sunset!

The large bed in the master bedroom is extremely comfortable. I slept so well in that bed! No comments about the other bed and the sofa bed because I didn't try them.

If you like the beach, this is a great location. It's a 10-15 minute walk down to Mokapu Beach and Ulua Beach. Mokapu is great for boogie boarding, playing in the surf and relaxing on the sand. Ulua is great for snorkeling and scuba. Ulua even has setup and rinsing facilities for scuba. First class!

My only nitpick about the unit is the sliding louvered doors that separate the 2nd bedroom from the living area. While the doors do allow you to open them to get a great cross breeze into the unit, the downside is that they provide very little sound proofing. If you have children (or a light-sleeping teenager!), you may find it difficult to stay up late and chat or watch TV in the living area. If the weather is great, you can solve that problem by sitting on the lanai but if it rains (which it did a bit during our stay) that's not really an option. Furthermore, you can't make much noise on the lanai during later evening hours. However, if you have two adult couples with each couple staying in each bedroom, I would imagine that you'll all be going to bed at the same time, so the louvered door thing wouldn't be an issue.

Overall this is an excellent unit!
