Overview

Maui Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4-5

The condo is located in South Kihei on Maui's sunny South-West side. The complex has a recently renovated pool and beautiful, well maintained tropical grounds. It is located within walking distance to everything, less than a 5 minute walk from Charley Young Beach, one of Maui's best swimming beaches, and Cove Park beach, one of Maui's best beginner surf spots. Shopping, restaurants, cafes and Starbucks are within a 10 minute walk as is Kalama Beach Park which has beach volleyball courts, a skateboard park, a roller skating rink, basketball courts and a playground. There's assigned, off street parking right in front of the unit.

The condo underwent a total renovation in 2011 and was updated again in October, 2015 with fresh paint, a new 18,500 BTU air conditioner, a new dining set, a new coffee table and new lanai furniture. The condo offers two real bedrooms (not a loft) and a separate living area. That makes all the difference when one person wakes up early from jetlag and you don't want everyone up!

The entire condo has been furnished and decorated professionally with a hotel like décor and contemporary furniture. New tile flooring throughout the unit helps keep it cool and comfortable. The master bedroom features a luxurious, four poster king bed and a luxury plush, serta-pedic mattress when you need to rest after a long day at the beach, the pool or sightseeing around the island. The second bedroom is the perfect hangout spot for kids with a twin bunk bed, plenty of space to play and a portable crib for the little one. The bunk bed can be separated into two twin beds. The living room is spacious, features a comfortable couch, chair and coffee table, as well as a small formal dining area. And all the entertainment options you need are provided with a new 42' LCD HD 1080p flat screen TV, Blu-ray player, 100+ cable TV channels (many in HD), instant streaming of movies, TV shows and music through Netflix, Pandora and Vudu (Vudu requires you to have an account), and of course there's free WIFI. The bathroom is completely remodeled in 2011 with a bathtub for the kids, a shower and a large vanity with room for all your toiletries. And for those beautiful mornings or perfect, warm evenings there's a table and comfortable chairs on our private lanai so you can have your breakfast and dinner outside with a view of the tropical garden and the pool.

The beautiful and functional kitchen with Corian countertops is fully stocked with everything you need to cook in your home away from home. The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, oven, gas stove, all necessary cooking utensils, blender, coffee maker, toaster, rice cooker and much more.

The condo is stocked with everything needed for a comfortable and fun stay. That includes beach chairs, umbrella strollers, coolers, beach towels, lots of towels, board games and some toys.

With two real bedrooms, the condo is just perfect for you and your kids. With two children of my own the condo has been furnished with everything I look for when traveling with the kiddos. The unit provides a luxurious hideaway for adults with a beautiful master bedroom, a functional kitchen and perfect entertainment system. On top of that, everything has been setup with kids in mind. It is all about keeping the kids happy so that everyone is happy! The second bedroom comes with a bunk bed and has a large open floor space so there's room to play. There is also a real wood portable crib on wheels that can fit in either bedroom or be moved around, as needed. There is a single and a double umbrella stroller. With a stroller, the nearby playground, beaches and restaurants are within walking distance for everyone! The condo is on the ground level and doesn't have any stairs so you don't need to carry anything or anyone up and down the stairs, or have anybody fall down. The condo is generally child safety proofed. The ladder on the bunk bed can be taken off making the top bunk bed off limits and there is a safety gate to close off the kitchen (or any room for that matter). No dangerous fall from the lanai as it's on the ground floor. Other things to make your stay enjoyable include toys, games, plastic kids utensils, booster chair, beach toys, and kids life vests (use at own risk). And I know your kids will enjoy picking their favorite TV show on Netflix when they need to wind down after an action packed day.

About Michael Nielsen

I live in beautiful Sammamish just outside of Seattle. I have two kids ages 7 and 9.

Michael Nielsen purchased this condo in 2011

Why Michael Nielsen chose Maui

When I moved to Seattle from Los Angeles a few years ago I knew I'd want to travel for sun during those long, rainy fall and winter months. I have stayed at various condos in Kihei, most I loved, one not so much! One of the first condos I rented was at Kalama Terrace and I was very impressed with the location, the people, and how well the grounds are kept. I knew it had to be a two bedroom condo for me to become an owner and over the years I've been looking on and off and finally this one came up. The condo was in a miserable state but I loved the opportunity to fully renovate the unit. I love the way it turned out and am sure you will too!

What makes this condo unique

I love the condo, because everything is so accessible. This is great for everyone, but a life saver when traveling with kids. The beach, the park with the playground, shops and restaurants are all a short walk from the condo and the pool is just a few steps across the lawn from the lanai. I also love the fact that it is an end unit and it feels like we have our own little private area.

Basic Needs Met

  • 3 of 5

This condo was well advertised on the internet but you get what you pay for. This is an older condo that was nicely decorated with an updated kitchen and bath. It felt more like an apartment complex with interesting but nice neighbors. It was a very quiet complex. The AC unit in the living room works quickly to cool down the front room but it is very loud and does not cool down the back bedrooms. There was only one floor/stand-up fan even though the guest book said another guest had bought a second fan and left it in the unit. We put this fan in the hallway and pointed it toward the bedrooms. Really hard to cool down the back rooms. There are ceiling fans in each bedroom but they don't cool the room down. For safety reasons we did not leave the windows open at night. The dump trucks will wake you up by 5am. On Thursday they were the loudest with a dump truck passing by every 5 minutes it seemed. The boogie board was broken and there was only one child and one adult snorkel mask. The adult mask had a white sticky substance all over it and it was unusable. We ended up spending $100 on snorkel and boogie board rentals for the week. It was frustrating we had to buy so many basic items like bar soap, garbage bags, TP, etc. When we called the property manager about our few concerns she just kept saying this was a cheap rental for Maui and we were getting a great deal. Okay.... We never used the pool so unable to make a comment. There were too many rules and my daughter did not want to use it. As she puts it, "if you can't do a cannon ball then what's the point?" The on-site manager was nice and helped to explain one night that we couldn't have the oven and the stove top on at the same time for safety reasons. We did appreciate being able to cook most of our meals at the condo. I would have appreciated a dresser in the kids bedroom. The bunk bed was dismantled so I used the second bed to lay out clothes. My daughter was sad the bunk bed was not put together. She was really looking forward to sleeping on the top bunk. The king bed mattress was too lumpy / soft for our backs. We are used to a very firm bed so we run into this problem often while on vacation. This is a good location and we found it easy to navigate to other parts of the island. It's hard to recommend this condo. Depends on what you need. Maui is expensive and this condo helped us to stretch our money, so that is a good thing.

Great family vacation location!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with a toddler and this condo and location were perfect. We really appreciated all the family friendly gear in the condo! We were able to walk to the beach and numerous parks around Kihei.

Great place, location, owner.

  • 5 of 5

We just recently spent 10 days at the Maui family condo and we loved it. The location for us was great as it was a very short walk to Charlie young beach even with a 2 and 5 year old. There are also other beaches very close by. We found it very central and close to everything. The place is as advertised and well kept. Michael is great do deal with and responds quickly when emailed. The two bedrooms worked great for us and the king in the master was very comfortable. The place is quite and close to the pool if you choose to use it. We spent all of our time at the beach or touring so never took advantage of it. Just up the street there are great restaurants and lots of shopping to do. We will definitely stay here again if we are able to make it back to Maui. I was a little nervous being a first time VRBO user and Michael made it so easy and was able to answer any questions I had. Thanks again and we will be back hopefully sooner than later!!

Maui Family Condo - Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

Well kept and renovated condo. Michael has done a nice job renovating and furnishing the condo. The grounds are well kept as well and we had a lot of privacy in our lanai. Short walk to Charlie Young Beach to watch the sunset after happy hour on our lanai. We tried lots of different beaches south of where we stayed and it's only about a 10 minute drive away at most.

We had a fantastic time in Maui. Thanks for having us Michael!

Cozy condo near the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a lovely and relaxing ten days in this family condo near Charley Young Beach at the north side of Kamaole 1. The condo is within a five-minute walk to the main Kamaole stretch, and slept our family of three easily. There's a common pool between the two buildings, and a peaceful sense of quiet because of the condo noise rules. The kitchen was efficient and easy, the beds extremely comfortable, the location easy to drive to almost anywhere. Just off of the main drag, South Kihei Road, we were able to get away to Kaanapali/Lahaina, Paia and the Road to Hana, Wailea, and well, it's quite perfectly situated. The beaches, are, quite simply, spectacular, and you're right there. It was the perfect base for all our beach and water activities, tennis, paddleboard and snorkeling, eating out, shopping for food and souvenirs, and wonderful restaurants and snacks. A great getaway!
