About Kathy Blackman

My husband and I live in the Seattle area with our 2 teenaged kids and a host of pets. I am a doctor and my husband is a physicist. We get very little time off but when we do we always go to Kihei Alii Kai. I owned the unit for many years before deciding to share it with visitors. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Kathy Blackman purchased this condo in 1984

Why Kathy Blackman chose Kihei

I purchased here because when I am in Hawaii I want to spend it on the beach and I truly believe this one to be unbeatable. While there are other condominiums near Kamaole this one has the unique advantage of also being quiet at night.

Walk to the beach - Disappointed with other features of the condo

  • 3 of 5

Pro: Condo is few minutes walk to the beach. Beach has soft and clean sand.


Cockroach dead on floor (I had a picture of it), extremely slow internet, rotten beach umbrellas, dark bedroom, broken beach chair, condo needs brighter light fixture (it is hard to read with current light fixtures/bulbs); old/worned bath towels

Before booking the condos, there was only one review and it was from years ago. I was hesitated to book, but decided to book because the condo was within walk distance to the beach.

We arrived at the condo around 11 pm after a long flight. There was NO shampoo or bath gel in the bathroom. I expected the owner would't provide lots of supplies, but at least , 1 or 2 days supplies should be provided. We had to take showers without shampoo or soap and bought our own shampoo and bath gel the next day.

Next, the internet was extremely slow. I was unable to use internet to see my gmail. It took a long, long time to surf a web page to find local business. We gave up and had to pay extra to use the data from our cell phones. After 6pm, the beach is dark, not much activities. You need to drive 45 minutes to Lahaina town or Kanapali beach for shops/restaurants/activities.

The bedroom has a window, but the window was open to the hallway. We had to close the blind all of the time. Since the light fixtures were not bright enough, the bedroom was dark.

The 2nd day, we found a dead cockroach on the floor. We were not sure if the cockroaches ran over the dishes inside the cabinet that we used for dinner!

We took the beach umbrellas to beach. When we pulled the cover, the umbrella clothes fell into pieces. I guessed they were rotten by the humid salt air. Disappointed, we had to carry the umbrellas back to the condo. Two adult beach chairs,one of them was broken.

The condo has an elevator, but you need to lift your luggages up several steps (about 8) before getting to the condo.

This was the 2nd time we were at Maui. The first time, we stayed at Hyatt hotel in Kanapali beach (45 minutes north). If we would come back, we will stay in Kanapali. Kehei has great beach, but not much activities.

I am not sure if the condo owner visited the condo lately. I hope the owner would take this review in a positive way to update their condo to make it a great condo for guests.

Owner's Response: THANK YOU for the constructive review. This condo has been fully updated in kitchen, new appliances, tile floor, new carpet in bedroom, , large lanai, new a/c, new bed & bedding and beautiful hand made wood bedroom closet doors. Do not know what more updates you mentioned needed. The cleaners does leave a start up supply of soaps, toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, dishwasher soap & laundry soaps. for guests arrival. Anymore beyond the start up supply of soaps is guest responsibility to provide. Yes, the complex has steps to access this owners condo. We do mention to everyone when booking. There are 10 steps to the elevator, then condo is on 3rd floor, then 5 more sets of 5 steps to the condo. We were never notified of any issues during your stay. for us to to resolve, beach chairs, beach umbrella and or roaches. This condo is very repeated condo due to all of the pride of owner has placed into their condo. Have a blessed day.

Great Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to find the unit to be as described in the ad. Great 3rd floor ocean view from the lanai including Molokini. The unit was well stocked with kitchen items, towels, and linens. The bed was very comfortable. Our teenaged son enjoyed being able to sleep on the lanai. The beach was a very short walk from the complex and it was convenient to carry down towels and chairs and boogie boards. Great organic grocery store was a short walk as well as several restaurants. Fabulous sunsets and every night there were turtles feeding down at the shoreline. In the early mornings the ocean was calm and it was great fun to swim at sunrise.
