Why LYNN AKER chose Maui

This is a small, 6-unit property in more of a residential type of area than a heavy tourist area with large hotels and condo complexes. Its grounds are beautiful and well maintained. In the gated area in the middle of the complex there is a lovely solar heated, saline swimming pool, and a commercial quality outdoor kitchen/bar area for guests to enjoy. It is just a half a block from the longest walking beach in Maui, where you will see the most beautiful sunsets Maui has to offer due west from the beach. We make our owner's closet available to our guests, with beach towels, snorkel gear, beach chairs and mats, umbrella's, etc.

Our property is very nicely located--roughly 15 minutes from the airport, within minutes of the many beautiful beaches of Kihei, Wailea and Makena, and approximately a half hour from Lahaina. There are many restaurants, stores and shops within minutes of our place.

What makes this townhome unique

Only a few steps to the beach, the pool and parking.This is a quiet intimate property ideal for rest and relaxation. Never a crowd at the pool. It is truly Maui's best kept secret.

Private Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as listed - quiet, private, clean, comfortable, close to everything. Located just off of South Kihei Road, about 50 steps to the beach, the condo was very easy to find.

The main floor has a kitchen that is fully stocked with pans, cutlery, glassware and small appliances, kitchen table, couch and TV. Sliding doors lead out to your two lounge chairs, table, BBQ, ice maker and bar area. Upstairs has a king size bed, bathroom, and a Juliet balcony overlooking a beautiful pool, and a second balcony with lounge chairs.

Even though there are 4 other condos around the pool, it was very quiet and we often felt like we were the only ones in the complex.

The condo is about a 15 minute drive from Wailea as well as a 15 minute drive to Kahalui in the opposite direction.

The pool area is a highlight. Solar heated, the shallow end is about 4 feet deep and the deep end about 6 feet. Beautiful spot around the pool to lounge during the day and automatic ambient lighting around the property during the evening made for magical moments.

We bumped into the owners who were around making sure the area was in top shape - replacing and positioning lighting and managing contractors who were working on other maintenance items. They were helpful and willing to share information with us and seemed to truly appreciate us as clients and want to make our stay everything it could be.

We would love to return and would encourage others to enjoy this little piece of paradise!

Beautiful property, but poor communication

  • 4 of 5

Property itself is great. Awesome outdoor space with great saltwater pool. Clean, quiet condo that is equipped with all of the essentials. The only complaints I have is that communication was poor. No info was provided for check-in so we were scrambling around trying to find contact info day of. Luckily, one of other guests was able to help us out by providing a phone number, but we were stuck in the parking lot for an hour or two trying to sort it out. Additionally, no info was given regarding 'rules of stay' (you need to supply your own toilet paper, they are a bit picky about items allowed in and around pool area, etc.). Nothing too overboard, but it should have been provided up front and wasn't. Overall, we had a great stay, and highly recommend it, but it could have been stellar had communication been up to snuff.

A Little Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

It was the reviews we read about this property that sold my husband and me on staying here, and they are not wrong! We loved the place. Beautiful pool literally steps from your door, private and secluded, right across the street from the beach, and wonderfully landscaped. It was very windy the first couple of days we were there, and the trees and lush foliage surrounding the property made for a very welcome windbreak, along with giving the property its air of seclusion and privacy. The unit itself made us feel at home the moment we walked in and has everything you could want to make your stay comfortable and inviting. The location in Kihei can't be beat - close enough to everything, but away from the busyness of Wailea. Thank you, Edward, for your thoughtfulness and kindness!

The property was well kept with a fabulous outdoor grilling space for all to use. The condo was clean and bedding quite comfortable. Edward was helpful and answered questions quickly willing to provide suggestions upon all requests.

Great Time on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo Edward for a great vacation!

The unit is exactly as described - the only surprises are pleasant ones: ample towels (and beach towels), beach chairs, coolers, good quality snorkel and boogie board equipment... really everything you need to have a great time on Maui. The only thing I think we were left looking for was an ice cream scoop.

If you're debating staying on the West Side vs Kihei or East side, we found that this side of Maui has less people, easier access and activities to do, and less of a "commercial" feel than the West side. That being said, it also feels less "resorty".

The location of the unit was great for us: located North of the "busy" section of Kihei, with access to a great walking beach across the street.

Our favourites:

- Surfers and windsurfing at Ho'okipa

- The crowd around Paia, Haiku and Makawao

- The big beach at Makena

- Snorkeling and sea turtles around Makena

- Haleakala summit

- Learning to surf at Kalama

- Walking the beach to Maalea Harbour (about 3 hrs round trip)

Looking forward to returning sometime soon!

Great Stay, can't wait to return!!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled extensively and stayed in many VRBO rentals over the years. This condo far exceeded our expectations. We loved the fact that there were only 6 units and from the time you walk into the gated entrance, you feel like you've entered a wonderful Hawaiian boutique property. There is a lovely pool area that is fully equipped with a grill , refrigerator, dish washer, sink and ice maker. There are several seating areas that are great for eating dinner outside, including a bar with bar stools . The condo was spacious and we loved the fact that the living area is downstairs and the bedroom/bathroom area is upstairs. You have no upstairs neighbors so it is very quiet. The bedroom has a beautiful lanai where you can sit and read or have coffee in the morning. There is also another smaller lanai so you have a good tropical cross breeze.The grounds are wonderful and very tastefully done. We can't imagine staying anywhere else and look forward to returning soon! We found the Manager and Owner to be very accommodating and very quick to answer any questions!
