Let the trade winds gentle breezes lull you to sleep in your choice of King, Queen or one of the two twin beds. Soak those tired muscles from the day of ocean kayaking in the hot tub while the kids play in the heated pool, while the plumeria blooms pinwheel past you. Or walk across the street to view sunset just a minute away. You can experience a vacation of a lifetime here. Relax, heal, regroup and renew!

About Debbie

Debbie is an event videography who produces in conjunction with capturing moments video iphone travel applications for the islands. In the itunes store you will find her app “Virtual Maui Guide” a complete travel book on your phone. Debbie and her husband Jeff, lived here at Koa for 5 years. Betty Ann, my cousin that enjoyed visiting us to vacation for the last 5 years, decided to invest in Koa resort to retire in some day. So sit back and relax with your own “insider local” tour guide to the islands. We really enjoy seeing the island through new eyes when you visit. This condo has been totally remodeled by us to fit all your needs on vacation. Our condo home in sunny Kihei and is the perfect place to call home while you explore!

Debbie purchased this condo in 2002

Why Debbie chose Maui

Kihei is centrally located to the island. If it is raining in Kihei, it is raining all over the island. Very dry area of the island, it is perfect for all water sports. My husband, Jeff is a scuba diver great dive locations here close as well as great places for me to kayak out to watch whales! Not to mention the best beaches on Maui!

What makes this condo unique

Love the mix of residents, from young and old alike. Some retired living their dream retirement, some working on the island, some coming to enjoy the island for the first time, some coming to marry or honeymoon. The property is build with a pool that never gets crowded. Property promotes activities with two tennis courts and cabana for parties or just grilling with the family. Shuffleboard is a family favorite around the hot tub and pool area. Always something to do with plenty of wide-open space so you never feel like you are in a condo complex. Central parking lot means no one drives up to your door. Beautiful winding tropical walk ways back to the buildings, with so many plumeria trees and other Hawaiian tropical’s blooming year round, scent the breezes as you make your way back to your private unit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The following was sent February by way of a text message to my iphone!

"Just wanted to say the condo is fabulous!! Beautifully done...Thank you for a such a wonderful place to stay...."

The following message was left in our condo upon their departure:

"Paradise found!"

We stayed here for two weeks in February and loved it! Debbie went above & beyond to make sure we had everything we needed/wanted for a wonderful stay. The condo is beautifully decorated. The attention to detail is amazing. The pride of ownership shows!! We saw several other condo's in the complex while we were here, and this was far the nicest one. Location is great as well. Hopefully we'll be back soon...Mahalo Debbie!!!

Home away from home!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your lovely condo! It was so well equipped with everything we needed. Debbie has truly thought of everything you might need. The kitchen was perfect for making breakfasts and lunches, and we took advantage of the 2 BBQ's for cooking dinner. The lanai was large and private, and gave us the feeling we were sitting in a tropical garden. Our only complaint was road noise from South Kihei Road. If the windows were open at night, we were awakened early with commuters. But other than that we were very happy with "Eat, Drink and Be Maui!"

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to hear of your complaint. Let me see if I can explain as sounds are a very local part of living on island. Maui is an early-morning place. While Living in Kihei I was always amazed at how alive everything becomes quickly in the morning. All ocean activities begin at sun rise, when the ocean and wind is at its calmest. Things wind down early as well with only a few places that remain open late. I would suggest if you like less activity on Maui to stay off the beaten path in Hana. If you want a really quiet island off grid stay on the Big Island or a sleepy rainy place tucked in on The island of Kauai. But then you might also be awakened by the wild Roosters or peacocks! I have also been jolted awake by the little franklyn hens screams or noisy mynah birds. They can be much noisier than traffic! Something I am afraid , can't be helped unless you shut windows and run the A/C. Please keep these things in mind next time you would like to stay up late and sleep in. Maui is an early morning place. One of our favorite breakfast spots Kihei caffe opens 5 am! Embrace your morning person side and get out there and enjoy.

Absolutely Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! We stayed 4 nights here, and 4 nights at another place on a different part of the island, and I wish we would have stayed here the whole time. I went to Maui with my sister and my cousin, and we all agreed that we would stay here on future trips. They have thought of everything in the way of supplies, cooking needs, and personal needs. The unit was delightful, comfortable and very quiet. We all slept really well, beds & pillows were comfortable. Plenty of bath and beach towels. The patio was wonderful to sit out on at any time of day or night, with beautiful tropical foliage providing privacy. The pool was very close, and rarely had others swimming, so it felt like our own private pool when we used it.

Debbie was great to work with, and provided us all of the information we needed. It was easy to find, and in a quieter part of Kihei, while still being close to restaurants, shops and beaches. It's central to all activity on Maui, and you can get anywhere on the island and back in an easy day driving excursion. We loved the decor, tropical, tasteful and lovely. When we were at the unit, we had the doors and windows open to allow the wonderful breeze to come in and keep the place cool. Thank you Debbie, for making our stay at your place perfect!

Wonderful Hawaiian Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 9 nights and loved everything about it.

The location was ideal for going south to the beaches or north to a Lahaina luau. The condo itself had everything you could possibly need. We had 5 people staying in it and it fit us well.

Its a beautiful place and very well appointed down to shampoo if you should need it.

It was just like home..only with exotic bird sounds as you wake up in the morning out the lanai. The grounds were lush and the lanai private.

It is artistically decorated too. I wasn't looking for a "hotel room" experience.

I would highly recommend Eat Drink and Be Maui for your Maui stay!

We had a group of 4 (one couple and two ladies), and it suited us perfectly for our first stay on Maui. Central location made it easy to get to island attractions either North or South, and we enjoyed the pool and spa when we got back "home". Had all the amenities we needed, was beautifully decorated in island theme, and was certainly worth the price (not on the water, but not priced like on the water either). The owner provided a list of recommended activities, beaches, restaurants, and shopping which we used and found to be very helpful. She even alerted us when there was a Severe Weather Alert, and suggested activities during the less than perfect swimming weather. We recommend it!

Cozy family condo

  • 5 of 5

A very clean and beautifully furnished condo. The perfect size for our family of four, it provided us a very relaxing stay. And the lanai offered privacy but also easy access to the pool and amenities.

Owner's Response: Koa resort is a great place for families with the biggest pool in Kihei. The central location on island makes it a good home base for exploring the wonders of Maui. Thank you for your review, so glad you felt relaxed and at home.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The resort has every amenity we could hope for and is well located close to beaches and local services. The pool is lovely and everyone has enjoyed relaxing there. The gardens are very well kept with an array of colourful Hawaiian plants. Parking is easy and every other aspect of the condo has been spot on. We are very glad we chose this accommodation and would happily stay again.
