Absolutely the best kept secret in Kihei. Kihei garden estates is only a 20 minute drive from Kahului (OGG) airport. Situated in the heart of Kihei, this condo is the end unit allowing for perfect Hawaiian breezes to flow throughout. Enjoy the spacious lanai overlooking the pool, hot tub and pavilion. Beach access is half a block away where you can drink your coffee and watch the sunrise on those peaceful morning walks. Restaurants, shops, and fitness center is only a short walk away. Kihei garden estates is situated directly behind Times Market (grocery store) making those meal decisions effortless.
Our upscale condo has just been completely remodeled with the best of everything. The entire condo was redesigned from cabinetry, tile floors, granite counter tops, lights, fixtures, and stainless steel appliances. Including, all beds and pillows with dust mite and bed bug mattress protection encasement, linens, curtains, towels, and furniture.
My family of 2 adults and an 11 and 14 year old stayed here in April. First time to Hawaii. Condo has been renovated nicely. It was clean and we did not see any bugs in the condo. Beds and bedding are very comfortable. Complex grounds are very clean and the property management is continuously outside cleaning and maintaining all day, every day. Birds singing outside the windows in the mornings. Air conditioning is perfect for the main living area but is not strong enough to cool the back bedrooms There are fans in every room that were ok for cooling. The lanai is a great size and we appreciated the couch for late night lounging or early morning coffee. The condo had everything we required for our stay (except snorkeling equipment which you can rent all over the island). Not once did we hear from the owner or property manager to make sure everything was going well so I found that lacking in customer service. Just thought it would be nice to be treated as a special guest rather than an income. The owner did allow us with early entry our arriving day which I appreciated alot. Most spices left in kitchen are expired and need to be garbaged. WIFI is strong and consistent.
The condo community is very quiet. It is an older demographic so there were not many kids seen through our 8 days and most people visiting the pool are over 50. The pool has a ton of rules (no marco polo, no jumping into the pool, etc.) so my kids didn't use it much. My 11 year old was down there a couple of times and it was fairly boring for her. I swam with her one day and it was very warm water which was nice. The barbeque facilities at the pool were great and they were never too busy.
The walk to the immediate beach is a little sketchy. People passed out in the grassy areas or even right on the beach, hidden bottles of booze stashed in the bushes. We did not frequent this beach. We walked down a couple of evenings to watch the sun set but I would not spend any more time at this beach than that. The drive down to Kam 1, 2, and 3 is very short. There is fast food and convenience shopping very nearby (within walking distance).
Definitely visit Mount Halaekala-incredible views! Stop by Malaaela Harbour and watch the turtles, great boogie boarding at Polo Beach, Kayaking/snorkeling was worth the money, rented bikes for a day which was fun. Husband and son explored the lava tubes (caves) during their drive to Hana. Eat at Coconuts or Tiki Lounge - great food! Shave Ice is yummy
This condo has everything you need. The location is unbeatable and it has all the amenities you could want. It is the perfect size for a family of four.
This was our 3rd trip to Maui in past 6 years and first time at Kihei Gardens. We are parents with a 13yr old and an 8yr old. Initially we missed the view over the beach to the ocean but the complex made up for that. Besides it is a very short walk to the beach. The complex and the courtyard are well laid out making the complex feel smaller than it is. The entire complex did not appear to be too busy even though it was March, perhaps many of the units are not rented. There was some voices from the pool area, but we didn't mind it, especially if our kids were making some noise too. The hot tub was nice as our previous condo only had a pool. The pool and complex are well maintained with staff cleaning the grounds every morning. Lots of vegetation made it appear very lush and tropical.
The condo was very well stocked (best we've ever had) and well decorated; it was much appreciated. Mahalo DJ.
There was some noise coming from the S Kihei Rd (vehicles, sirens) but it is an urban area. We do not expect solitude here, we go to Hana for that.
We toyed with the idea of renting surfboards and/or SUPs for several days but had no place to store them as there is no storage in the condo or the complex. They would have to be left on the vehicle.
We loved the location as it is central to going anywhere - West Maui, North Shore, Haleakala, Wailea - and the Times Supermarket was a quick walk.
We would definitely go back.
Had a wonderful stay, location in the complex could not have been better for our 2 year old being so close to the pool. We loved the beach close by and playground just down the road. The condo amenities were fabulous and so appreciated the beach and pool toys provided. The only thing to our dissatisfaction was we were only provided 2 rolls of toilet paper for our week-long stay and were told we needed to buy extra. I'd never experienced that with a vacation rental before. Overall it was a great stay and we will certainly be back.
My friend and I stayed in this condo the last week of October (after stays on Oahu and Kauaii).
It is newly remodeled and very lovely. We enjoyed the pool at the condo. Location is very good. Conveniently located to grocery stores, restaurants, beaches and everything else you could need. The unit does not have central air, but there is a wall unit. It did the job for us just fine. (And I think the weather was exceptionally hot while we were there).
We enjoyed Happy Hour at Five Palms and highly reccomend the Old Lahina Luau (vs. the Wailea Marriott Luau), worth the half hour drive. The trip to Front Street in Lahaina is enjoyable and definitely worth it.
The bedrooms face the parking lot and the style of the windows let in quite a bit of noise. Not very good if you want to sleep in but when you are in paradise being awake is better than anything you could dream about!
The condo was sprayed for pests while we were there, which was not much of an inconvenience, but there was a giant dead cockroach on the floor when we returned. But I had read in my research before our trip that there are cockroaches in Hawaii and you just have to deal with it. Hey, at least it was dead!
Overall it was a great stay in a great location! Owner was pleasant to deal with as well.
My family and I stayed at this condo for a week from 8/04/15-8/10/15 and had an amazing time! It is a perfect location (away from the crowds and highrise hotels) and close proximity to the beach (which is very quiet and low-key). We also had the chance to catch the sunset every evening and saw turtles bobbing around in the ocean. I chose this location because it feels like you are a part of the island and not closed in. We happened to be there during an unseasonably hot and humid time (I'm told this was a bit out of the ordinary for this time of year) and while the a/c was great to have (and it was used). The 2nd bedroom which, while beautiful, light and airy, had the sun in the early morning and evening (it stayed a bit warmer in there too). So if you need a darker room, the master is perfect! The beds were extremely comfortable. I slept like a log. The pool area was used a couple of times, as well as the laundry facility, and I had no problems with either of them. We frequented the local market directly behind the complex, walked to a few shops at the local strip mall. We used the beach towels on our snorkel trips. These were provided in the condo as well. All in all, I'd say it was money well spent and was such a fantastic experience that we are already planning another trip next summer. This time it will be longer too. Mahalo DJ!
