This unit has more than met our expectations. The Owner has been amazing from the original inquiry to our next to last day (we're still here).

The unit is clean!! Lovely welcome gift - thanks Diane. The bed was amazingly comfortable with a memory for a topper - I usually prefer a slightly firmer one. We had all the kitchen implements we needed, some spices to start off with and all the beach gear we could use.

We shop specifically for the view and without a doubt our time on the lanai in the early morning and later afternoons/evenings is more than worth the price of admission. (So wish I could add our pictures!!!) We have watched the whales, can hear the ocean - early morning is best and the sunsets - beyond amazing. The back walk up area is wonderful for the sunrise over the mountains. There are no condos behind - a parking lot, road and single family houses on large lots. Bedrooms off the back can be concerning although we had no issues as there is a fairly large green space between the building and the road (never heard traffic). Quiet time is very well respected so people coming and going are rarely heard back there and the unit sits closer to the end so very few people need to walk by.

Unit is updated - furniture is comfortable, artwork, granite counters, etc.

Kameole Beach II is at the end of the driveway and has been a favourite beach for the last 7 years.

Given our location we have watched the maintenance workers in the morning at the pool / BBQ area. They test the water, clean the entire area and the BBQs are meticulously maintained.

All good things seem to come to an end and this will be a very cherished 2 weeks.

I would highly recommend this condo and certainly look forward to returning!!!!

Maui is now my favourite place

  • 4 of 5

This unit is very beautiful with lovely updates. We enjoyed the use of the beach chairs and umbrella. The view is very beautiful and we were not disappointed with that even if the picture shown in the ad is better. Maybe trees have grown taller. The unit is a fourth building in the complex and the furthest from the beach. It's very close to one of the complex pools so to and from that is very easy. One of the details in the ad information caught my attention was that this unit is at the quiet location in the complex. The very noisy bird that screeches at 6 am and on hasn't been notified. The unit next door had their door to the open walkway open and had loud company that were as clear as though they were standing in the room. Don't get me wrong, we did love it there I just want to set appropriate expectations. Our departure ended on a sour note as the code to enter our room was changed well in advance of our 11 am check out time. The on site office couldn't gain us access. The owner was unavailable by phone or email. We finally found information through the office for an off site rental manager whom when we reached gain us entry to get our belongings and bring relief to our sweating in the stagnant hallway air. This contact number could have been included from the owner and I would have had it on my smart phone and we would have gotten in much sooner. I never got a response from the owner. Unfortunate end to a lovely week. Yes, with these expectations I would recommend renting this unit. The many pluses out weighs the negatives.

Owner's Response: Aloha! It's unfortunate that your vacation ended as it did. I do send my personal cell number to each guest as well as the number of my on island contact who usually contacts me within minutes. Thirdly, the office does have access to each unit for emergency purposes. And I do inform guests in the arrival information that that door code does sometimes stop working a few minutes before check out time. So your experience was a first, but my biggest apologies. Sometimes nearby guests can be heard, but I find if I discuss the situation nicely, people are happy to be respectful of others. As for birds and trees, I'm afraid they are out of my control. Lol! Glad you had a good time despite these issues for you.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 days and what a great location close to everything. Quiet environment, very clean well equipped to go to the beach. Very cooperative and flexible owner Diane. My wife at time would of like an AC.

Thanks again Diane would recommend in a heart beat

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your nice words and I am happy you had such a great time. We do not have A/C for a few reasons. Having allergies, I am concerned about mold in the A/C units and breathing chilly air. With the cross breeze up on the 5th floor, the ceiling fans, and the sun shade on the lanai, the place to us feels just right. But honestly, the most important reason, is that I love to hear the birds and the ocean and smell the plumeria trees through the open windows. We discovered that at sunset, some plants emit a fragrance. I thought I was imagining it, but it turns out, it is true. I love the natural Maui and I try to help my guests experience that, too. My Aloha, Diane

This was the perfect place for us! We loved the location; it was convenient to many of the places we wanted to visit but also had a great beach right across the street. There are a ton of great places to eat within walking distance (definitely go to South Maui Fish Co. food truck, we went four times, and we are kind of food snobs). The condo comes fully stocked with all the beach paraphernalia you could want including coolers, which was very convenient. The picture are very accurate, the view from the 'leinai' or balcony is great, we ate breakfast there every morning but one. When we were on the island there was a constant breeze that was extremely pleasant, and because its on the 5th floor we pretty much left the windows open the entire time. All in all we thought it was a fantastic value and we would recommend staying there.

Extremely comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I looked for a very long time at properties online for a perfect place to celebrate our 30th anniversary and we believe we found the ideal condo for us at Diane's lovely place. We were looking for comfort and convenience and this condo had it all. The location was perfect with everything we needed in walking distance to just a short drive. We walked on the beautiful beaches every morning just across the street. Diane was so hospitable and left nothing to be desired. Our second honeymoon couldn't have been better. We will not likely ever stay in a hotel again. Thank you Diane for those special personal touches too. We would recommend this beautiful condo to anyone but especially for those wanting a more quiet, laid back atmosphere.
