Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this unit for one week and wished it could've been a month or more. Our family of five had plenty of room and we were so comfortable. Felt like our home away from home, except better. The unit had everything we needed and then some. It was so clean, well stocked, super comfortable beds, awesome kitchen with a full on view of the sunset as we prepared our meals. The two full bathrooms were a huge plus, the grounds were so beautiful and the pool/hot tub/ BBQ area was a great place to hang out. We loved the location, right on the beach and so close to town and many activities. The huge grassy field out our back door was lovely. We definitely will stay here again and again. Thank you!

just like the pictures

  • 5 of 5

it was so refreshing to walk into the condo and see that it was exactly like the pictures! The site was gorgeous, clean and well maintained. The host pushed the twin beds together for us which made for an OK king size bed. The bathrooms were clean and well stocked. Plenty of towels for the beach. The kitchen had a pretty good variety of utensils, pans, and dishes. Only complaint was the dishwasher didn't hold very many dishes.

The extras like beach chairs, noodle and boards were a fun addition.

The lights and fans were a bit unique but we learned to live with it.

I would recommend it in a heartbeat!

Everything went off without a hitch. We enjoyed the room, the property, and the island. The condo was very well equipped and very nice to stay in.

Loved the location, loved the island, loved the beach but NOT this condo.

  • 3 of 5

This is an unobstructed view, beautiful property that is kept in great shape.

This particular condo, left lots to be desired in terms of the cleanliness.

I spoke with Malinee while at the property.This condo was dirty. Upon arrival we felt we the need to purchase some Lysol wipes and get at it. The phone was filthy, the fridge was dirty, doors were dirty. Drawers in the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen were not cleaned properly.

We had to wash some dishes before use. Night table in the master had something spilt on it. We cleaned it up.

I also want to point out, there is a difference between, a used item and one that was dirty.

Use you expect when using rental properties. Dirt you do not.

We are Canadian travelers and this unit cost us about $400 a night with exchange. We accepted that as a part of our travel plan.

We were greatly disappointed with the condo condition upon arrival.

I was told by Malinee, that we were in high season and it is difficult to keep the units at there best with quick turn arounds. I was told by people around us, the last people in this condo were the owners and they had left 3 days before us. Malinee did say this unit was up for a deep cleaning. Malinee asked what I felt would be the solution. I felt the deep cleaning should have been done before we arrived. There were 3 days in between.

Too ensure we were not being over the top picky, we actually checked out a couple of other units on the property while there. One was in the condo rental pool, one was another vrbo. Both were in far cleaner condition than this unit.

To be sure it is understood. We loved everything about Maui. Even the location of this property. The property as in the grounds, pool, bbq's, etc are in great condition.

This particular unit was dirty, no question about that.

We absolutely would return to this property as in Luana Kai again, but not to this unit.

While we loved our time and the island, the accommodation was very disappointing.

When I read through the comments, I see little in reference to what we were feeling about the condition and I also note, not everyone comments. Rather than just walk away and say we would not return to this unit, provides no appropriate feedback for the owner and other travelers to this unit. I feel it very important to pass the info on.

I trust this will be posted.

Thanks for the opportunity to provide the feedback.
