Why Kathy Benson chose Maui

This is the only place I have ever really relaxed. I come here to replenish my soul. You will replenish your soul too. Friends say they never want to leave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kerr and I loved our time in Maui. Your condo was well equipped and the views were amazing. It was clean, comfortable and the perfect get away! We appreciated the information about restaurants, the spa and the hiking trails. We made use of the beach chairs and the beach towels. That was a great plus! We will definitely recommend your condo to friends and would stay again.

Incredible Stay In Kapalua

  • 5 of 5

First - the condo is even better than it appears in pictures. It's spacious and light and the views from the balcony are incredible. We regularly rent through VRBO and Home Away and my husband commented that this was the best equipped kitchen we'd ever had. Our family of four had plenty of room (two teenage boys) and the extra bathroom was great. The pool is easily accessible and we barbecued there twice. Super close and easy drive to lots of beaches - our favorites being Honolua Bay, Napili Bay and Kapalua Beach. We were there for 8 nights, but will stay longer next time! Owners were super easy to deal with. We will definitely be back!

40th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your condo. We loved the view from the lanai; every morning and evening we had the pleasure of watching the humpback whales out in the bay. The open airy layout of the condo was perfect for us! Both pools at The Ridge are within easy walking distance from the condo. We found if one had lots of kids playing around typically the other would be nice and quiet for relaxing while reading a book. As an active couple we loved the fact we could go trail running, hiking, snorkeling, and body surfing without having to drive anywhere. Working with Kathy was easy and pleasant, the directions and instructions were very helpful. We had a great vacation and enjoyed out stay at your condo!

Maui Family Vacation 2016

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo Kathy!

We had an amazing time in your beautiful condo! The pictures do not do it justice. We appreciated all the extras (starter paper products, dish/detergent/soap, coffee, and on and on). The kitchen had everything and then some you could possibly need. Comfortable bed and an amazing shower. Our 13th year old son enjoyed the Murphy bed and his own bathroom. We all agreed this was by far the best condo we have ever stayed in. We can't wait to come back! Thank you again for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Many Thanks!

  • 5 of 5

What a great unit! You were right that we would not need the air conditioning as the breeze through it was very nice! You made it easy to acclimate to the Ridge with your written instructions and response to our calls for assistance. We very much appreciated the opportunity and your assistance to us. It is a great place and we thank you!

EXTRAORDINARY VACATION PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is out of this world! We have stayed on Maui many times but this was our first visit to Kapalua. The description did not do justice to how beautiful it is, the attention to details, decor, amenities, location--location--location! Fully stocked home! Towels, linens, complete kitchen, entertainment system, comfy couch and chairs, beautiful dining room table, beach supplies, lanai, comfortable king bed, and a master bath to die for! In fact, we are going to remodel our master shower to match this one! The beach & the pool are just a short walk from the condo. The beach is spectacular and the amenities in the pool/cabana area are more than complete and welcoming. Carl puts the most beautiful flowers in the bedroom, bathrooms, kitchen and dining. We just loved that little welcoming touch! Loved eating breakfast, lunch, dinner on the lanai--or just reading while relaxing on the recliners with a wee Mai Tai! It's true that the breezes come through the vented windows and sliding doors--no air conditioning was necessary--and the sound of the waves--enchanting! Kathy is so easy to work with. We had a conflict with dates due to our daughter's wedding and she accommodated us perfectly. Her attention to details with information and the outline of "how to's" in the condo was exactly what we like to know. We cannot say enough about the condo or Kathy's care of us renters. We will definitely be coming back here again and again! Thank you so very much Kathy!

Owner's Response: Yuba, I am so glad the two of you were able to relax in our home (because I know you needed that refreshment) and it sounds as though you enjoy it as much as us. I too love sitting on that balcony and watching the ocean and thinking how lucky we are. Hope to have you again.
