Nice location, great views tired unit

  • 3 of 5

The location is great, beautiful ocean views and close to everything. The unit is older, quite small and the furniture is clunky and uncomfortable.

Maaelea Kai 308

  • 4 of 5

Very nice unit had all the amenities that were needed. Size of the complex is really nice. Views of the bay from the lanai were excellent. Pool was nice. Nice to be able to walk into town. Only issues were; the slider and screen doors are in need of updating-off tracks and hard to slide. Air conditioner filter needs to be changed. Would stay there again.

Read Reviews, not just stars before you book

  • 2 of 5

Please review other past reviews who had issues and they are genuine. I wish we had done that.. This property needs quite some maintenance and it seems that owner wants to suck out every penny out of it without spending a dime!

Few issues to mention -

- insects crawling near toilet walls.

- Dirty bed sheets and pillow covers.. looked like they were not washed/replaced for a while.

- On a scale of 1 to 10 (Excellent) for overall cleanliness of the property - our rating will 5.

- Clogged bath tub.

- Lack of enough toiletries and basic kitchen stuff.

- All kitchen appliances just garbage (need replacement).

- Missing keys in the lockbox when checking in.. had to wait another hour to get it. Lucky enough to not to have reached Hawaii on a late evening flight which usually is the case for most of the flights getting there.

Lessons learnt for future - we really need to read the best and most importantly bad reviews both to get an idea what you are getting into..

Good thing about this property - superb location!!

30th wedding vow renewal

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location, was plenty of room for our party of 3, really enjoyed sitting out on the lanai and looking over the pool and right out to the ocean. Saw turtles just out the back by the sea wall. There was some really pretty Christmas lights on the bushes out back by the pool. We really enjoyed our stay while on the Island. Would definitely go back and stay again.

Great location & view

  • 3 of 5

My mom and I just spent a week here. The view is to die for and location very central to Lahaina, Kihei, Wailea and airport. It is always quite windy in the harbor area, according to the locals. November must be the "windy" season! There was one day when it was still. As you drive to other areas it can decrease. The balcony was actually a shelter from the wind. Parking space was a real plus. The grounds and pool were immaculate!

There were a few glitches. No info prior to our arrival as to how to access condo but owner quickly responded to my phone call. No cable or internet access instructions so had to call owner again. Again prompt to respond. There are post it notes on a kitchen wall as to how access internet and phone number to call cable support. The cable box had been unplugged (according to cable support) and had to be rebooted. Be sure to have owners' info handy so you can provide it to support. Just like at takes a while to resolve. I don't know if the housekeeper unplugged something so she could use the outlet or if previous renters did. There were several maintenance issues that I shared with the owner as we were leaving. She had preferred my contacting her earlier in our stay but I didnt want to have to wait for repair men or them having access while I was gone. As a homeowner, I understand how these issues can get away from you when you aren't there.

It would have been nice to have a book or something with instructions it eliminate all the phone calls, although Chris was always nice and responsive, I didn't like to bother her.

Bottom line, we enjoyed our convenient location, the phenomenal view, and overall stay!
