Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I were travelling to Maui for a wedding and were looking for a place that met our needs: clean, good location, and budget friendly. This place met all of our expectations. The apartment is a cute, cozy little place that was the perfect size for two people who just needed a comfortable crash pad. The bed is very comfortable, the apartment is clean, and it was outfitted with everything we needed-- even down to snorkel gear. There was also a laundry facility on the premises but bring quarters if you want to use it. We also couldn't have asked for a better location. The apartment is situated very close to the great beaches/restaurants/bars of Kihei/Wailea, and is also close to the major roads that we needed to hop on to get to Hana, Haleakala, Lahaina, and Kahului. We did a lot of travelling all over the island and had friends that stayed more south than us in the Wailea/Makena area, and we were actually much happier with our location for the accessibility reasons. I will say, however, that renting a car was a necessity (for us anyway). Connie was so nice and accommodating, and she was a pleasure to be in contact with. I have nothing negative to say about the entire experience-- I would work with Connie and stay here again and again.

Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for affordable accommodations for my solo Hawaiian vacation and I hit the jackpot! I did not have any fancy expectations, I just wanted a clean place to stay near the beach. I expected to spend most of my time outdoors anyway! I found the condo to be clean and everything in working order. Plenty of towels and kitchen ware. There were plenty of beach toys, cooler, rackets for tennis, chairs, snorkel gear and sunscreen. The only thing I would have liked that wasn't there was a lightweight beach chair (folding, low to the ground). The bed was comfortable enough. There is a table on the lanai that I ate breakfast at and spent time reading in the morning. The condo sits on the main highway with the beach just across the street. Traffic quiets down at night and I found it to be quiet enough, the sound of traffic does pick up in the morning. There is some water staining on the curtains and the unit is not updated. If you care about that this is not the place for you. There is a small park and beach just across the street that I found to be a nice place to swim. Great for kids because the water doesn't get too deep and it's a little calmer as it is surrounded by a nice rock wall. Restaurants and groceries are an easy drive away. I walked a mile to eat one night but found the road to be very dark and a little hazardous to be walking on in the dark. Kihei is only about 20 minutes from the airport so I found the location to be convenient, but I recommend renting a car if you want to venture around for activities.

Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a place to stay on Maui that is comfortable and yet wont break the bank,, this is the place for you.. It was close to a lot of place to shop and get food. With in easy driving distance to many of the attractions.. Easy to find. The condo is nice and clean with a partial view of the ocean. Even though the weather was hotter then usual for this time of year, the air conditioning kept us comfortable. If we ever go back,, we will definitely try for this place again. Ps,, watch for the geckos,, even though we did not leave any doors open, we ended up with one inside,, poor thing got his or her tail caught in the door. Was easy to catch and put back outside though,, and they were fun to watch outside. Connie was wonderful to deal with,, even went out of her way to loose some sleep to get our reservation done since our time zones are a few hours different. Could not have asked for a better vacation.

Cozy condo for Great price!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this place. Location is perfect, with a beach in walking distance and just 5-10 minute drive to all the south kihei beaches, restaurants, and markets. Studio is clean and very cozy. This place is well-priced and with everything you would need for your Maui vacation. The property manager was more than helpful. We'd go back to this place again!!!

DIRTY PLACE

  • 1 of 5

I rent this place on may 2015 for 8 days. This place smell very bad, kitchen cabinet smell moody very strong. The mattress as reach the end of is life, completely unusable! I had the worst bad pain in my life in the time i sleep in that place. The sheet are very very dirty and tried. Me and my husband went tot target for buying sheet, pillow and bath towel, because honestly anyone want to use these things. I have picture of all but unfortunatly we can't attach picture in this review. Don't rent this place, it's not a place to sleep like other reviewer tell, go sleep somewhere else, please! lot of noise because the apartment are on the road.. We saw other appartement in this area very clean, it's just this unit i think.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry this guest felt that way. As soon as the guests arrived, she emailed me and complained about the stains on the sheets as well as mattress quality. She stated they would go buy new sheets. I immediately called Mary and Jerry who are the local managers for the unit. They live two doors (about 30 feet) away from the unit. They went to the unit right away. However, no one was in the unit at the time. The managers went ahead and changed the sheets anyway. They then left a friendly note on the door asking the guests to contact them if helps were needed. I then at once emailed back to the guest and stated we will evaluate the mattress quality. The guest replied my email which expressed thanks to the managers and informed me that they saw the note and told me “Don’t worry about this”. I was relived at that point. No further email from her thereafter. As usual, before their arrival date I sent them an email which had the detail instructions of how to contact local managers for assistance. Mary and Jerry have been managing the unit for years. They are always willing and able to help if they are contacted. The purpose of having the onsite managers is to provide effective aid for our guests. Efficient communications are very crucial to reach this goal. Unfortunately, even with the courtesy note on the door these guests never contacted the managers at all. The mattress is about 3.5 years old and it’s in good condition. The smell was never mentioned in her emails and during the stay. Nevertheless, the managers went to check the room and kitchen cabinet specifically for the smell. There was no smell noted. As of the road noise, it did not bother most of people. South Kihei Road is a 2 lane street with 30 mph speed limit. There are very few vehicles at night. However, it may concern some people who are sensitive to road noise. In this complex, units with ocean view are all located next to South Kihei Road. These units are highly preferred by most of the guests and home owners. Obviously, this level of the road noise does not override the benefit of having a view of ocean from the units. We genuinely strive to do the best for our guests to have a joyful stay. We also try to maintain a low rent for the people who want to stretch their money for more fun, good food and other better use on the island. The unit is designed for a basic pleasant short stay in Maui. Please feel free to contact me for any questions or concerns. Thank you.

affordable staying

  • 4 of 5

It was my first visit in Maui and I am glad to rent this unit. Its location is desirable to go anywhere in Maui( less than 20 mins by car from OGG Airport, about 5min drive for grocery shopping). It also provides free Wifi as well as beach items like a beach chair, a mat, floating boards for my teens. What I don't like to about it is its bath room which is outdated so doesn't look clean. However, considering its rate , I definitely will stay this unit again next time I visit Maui.
