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
Verified Stay

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!

Aloha Pualani, Gardenia suite was more than expected. This is a beautiful small, quiet resort. Having the pool and BBQ area directly out the patio door was great! The location is easy for going anywhere on the island, the beach is a short walk away. This resort would be great for families and couples. The owners were such a pleasure to meet and easy to deal with. We loved our stay and thank you Mike and Lynn for making our stay so nice! The Gateman's

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.

Owner's Response: Aloha, I am so sorry you had a bad communication expierence. I really don't know how that could have happened. I know the owners son (Ed) told his Dad that everyone had their check in information. I think it was us that the neighbors had you call (we own the others) to help you get in. We took over the first of the year(after your visit) so I can promise that if you give us another try you will not have that problem again and you sure should never of had to supply your own toilet paper! Again I am sorry! Lynn

A Little Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

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!
