About Wen Allen
My husband and I live in Oregon. We both have a love of the ocean and we have purchased condos in great beach towns along the beautiful Columbia River. As a means of satisfying our desire to live near the water. Maui has always been at the top of our list of places we enjoy so it was natural for us to find a home on the island we have come to know so well. We definitely believe that 'Maui no ka oi' Maui is the best!
Wen Allen purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Wen Allen chose Kihei
Maui is the perfect combination of mountains, ocean, flora and activities. We love the blending of Hawaiian culture and the California beach vibe that is Maui. Living in the the long cold and rainy weather, we are so appreciative of the ocean, the humidity and the amazing tropical foliage that is everywhere. We look forward to the time when we are able to spend much more time in what we consider our home away from home.
What makes this Condo unique
Maui Kamaole has such a great location. We are directly across from the Kihei boat launch. We have walking access to 2 great beaches as well as restaurants in both Kihei and Wailea. Our complex has 2 pools, tennis courts, bbq's and a very helpful front desk. The landscaping is lush and we love that the buildings are not high rise condo towers. It has a very residential feel to the community. We were lucky enough to get a condo with great ocean and whale watching views. .

Overpriced and overhyped
I would say that this is a perfectly adequate condo. It was not, however, as advertised: a luxury condo in a amazing Hawaiian setting. Clearly, this is a money-maker for the absentee landlord who has yet to do some basic upgrading. Specifically, the rugs are old and stained (although recently shampooed, per the landlord), the woodwork is faded, water stained and scratched and various handles and doorknobs either fell off or were so loose that I spent time doing repairs just to open the door!
On the plus side, the condo was well cleaned although there was evidence that a monthly visit from an exterminator would probably be a good idea.
The view from the balcony showed only a partial ocean view view, otherwise you your looking at other condos or roads within the condo development.
Most frustrating, however, was the inability of the landlord to communicate details of our upcoming visit. It took multiple emails and telephone calls to get basic information from the landlord (directions, household information) as she was "very busy". Moreover, she declined to give access information until the very last minute as we were arriving. Our instructions were to call her for access information, but considering the difficulty we had in reaching her before, it was a constant worry that she would not be there to answer our call to provide access information. Thankfully, we were able to reach her this time. And to her credit, she was very pleasant whenever I was able to reach her.
All in all, given the premium price (about 1/3'd to 1/2 higher to other condos in the development) and the hyperbole of the property description, we expected a property along the lines of the local luxury hotel, but were disappointed.
As I said, this was a perfectly adequate condo, but nothing special. If it were priced appropriately and more accurately described, I would give it a higher rating. Be aware!
Great property, very well appointed.
The grounds of Maui Kamaole are beautiful, and very well maintained. The condo was wonderful! Spacious, very well appointed (grilled steaks at one of several grilling areas, and pleasantly surprised to see high quality Weber Genesis grills), leaving us needing nothing else to make great meals. The main living area's lanai had a nice view of the ocean through some trees. Honestly, I'd return here without any hesitation!
Great location and well appointed.
Great trip to Maui with the kids. Close to our favorite beaches and walking distance of good restaurants.
Wonderful location, condo itself could use some refreshing- owner a bit difficult to work with
This is the second time that we stayed in this condo and the views and location are wonderful. Generally the condo is updated, but it really needs some refreshing. Furniture, rugs and over all appearance could use some money put into it. The beach supplies are sorely lacking so be prepared to rent or buy your own. The owner is VERY particular about the check=in time. Don't remember it being a problem the last time, but it was this time. Don't plan to arrive early and be able to check in. We paid for 3 weeks accommodations and owner hassled us on getting into the condo an hour or so early. Also comments about the rug being just cleaned - Just not true.
Kitchen is very well equipped with both dishes, cooking items including some spices etc. Size of rooms etc. is very comfortable for 5 - 6 people. Maui Kamaole is a lovely complex and incredibly well maintained. The pools are a delight and you are in close walking distance to the beaches.
There are many nicer furnished condos in the complex than this unit. I suggest checking them out.
We also had a problem getting back our security deposit. Sent owner 2 e-mails and called with no response until I contacted Homeaway who placed a call to her. I think she hopes that people will forget to request the deposit back. Owner always seems to be in locations without cell phone service. First she is in Mexico and then in the "woods". Clearly this is a money maker for her and she doesn't put anything back into it. Also never informed the office that we would be arriving.
Guess we will be looking for a different spot the next time we vacation in Kihea.
Convenient location, clean house, beautiful beaches across the street and nearby. Family of 5 really enjoyed this location and this condo. Would definitely stay again.
