Top Floor Unit ~ Endless Ocean Views
average rating of 3.5 based on 18 reviews

Great view and great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience here. The property was well maintained. The view from lanai was perfect. The location was very good, right in front of Kamaore Beach I, where we enjoyed Snokeling, especially south end of Kam I. There are lots of restaurants around the property. They provide almost everything we need: paper products, shampoo, soap, towels, dishwasher and laundry detargent, beach chairs, cooler box, beach towels, body boards, etc. Kihei is very windy in the afternoon, but the property has air conditionings so it was confortable. The bed mattresses were too soft and linens and towels were little old. The property manager was very helpful and came to check our room when we experienced a minor issue. Overall, very good property.

A good bet

  • 4 of 5

This was our 4th trip to Maui in 5 years and our 3rd trip to Kihei. We enjoyed our stay in the condo. Reviews on the condo have been mixed, a couple of points.

1. Kitchen lighting has been addressed and no longer an issue

2. Road noise is present but is a concern for any oceanfront unit in Kihei - because they all front the same road which is a fairly busy 20-30 mph thoroughfare.

2. The views from the unit do match the pictures and are quite nice. The unit looks parallel down Kam 1 (or Camel 1 as my daughter would say) beach and includes the affronting ocean. The view is partially obstructed by a palm tree but overall quite nice and the tree does not detract.

The unit was recently remodeled and the work product was excellent. The condo is well designed, comfortably furnished and decorated, and family friendly. The beds were quite comfortable and the linens, towels, beach gear were all excellent.

At the time of my booking, it was an attractive price point. There are not a lot of oceanfront 2 bedroom units with AC in Kihei or elsewhere without spending a whole lot more than we did.

Two points for improvement:

1. The retro-fitted central AC has some issues (but 100% operational) and can make loud sounds that can disrupt sleep. Both condensate pumps can get stuck on and sound like they are being strangled. The only remedy was to disconnect the power and restart them. The unit never acted frozen.

2. I wouldn't come to the unit expecting adequate Wi-Fi. It appears to be a 3 MBPS plan based on my speed testing, which is about 15% the speed of the average mainland cell phone service. It was not adequately fast enough for me to do some cloud computing applications to stay up to date on my patient charts. For most people this would not be a concern, but most families traveling with adolescents now have multiple smart phones and other devices - even in wonderful Hawaii - and the current service isn't going to meet family needs. I also got a chuckle, because the condo welcome notes said the service goes down when it is windy - which just happens to be every afternoon in the summer in Kihei.

Even with those two points, I wouldn't have any qualms about returning to the unit.

Great location for our family. Snorkeling with sea turtles right outside your door!

  • 4 of 5

We are very glad we booked this unit. We love staying in Kihei because it is central to all other day trips we take on the island. We thoroughly enjoyed the two beaches and snorkeling with the family of sea turtles that inhabit the rocky shore just outside the Royal Mauian. This unit is also within walking distance to so many great places to eat! Staff was helpful and Claudia Garcia responded very quickly to our questions and needs. I had read other reviews before booking and am glad I didn't let them deter us. Road noise was not an issue for us at all. All we heard were the crashing waves at night. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was for the sugar ant problem in the kitchen. They are somewhat of a nuisance but we have encountered them before during our stays at other condo developments on Maui so we already knew they are a common issue no matter where you stay. They are manageable with ant traps and proper food storage. (Don't make it easy for them and you'll be fine)

Family Spring Break 2016

  • 4 of 5

I'm not sure where the previous reviewer was staying but the view from this property is phenomenal! We opened the door & were blown away. We would leave our master bedroom window open at night & listen to the waves crash. I'm usually more of a Hyatt girl, but with a family of 5 & wanting to stay in the Kihei area we went the condo route & we were not disappointed. The condo was clean, updated & spacious. The kitchen was very well stocked and there was everything we could want for the beach at the condo! The rooftop deck with BBQ's is a great place for sunsets & watching the turtles play in the rocks below. It was in a great location so my teen & young 20 kids could walk to things if they wanted. Claudia was so helpful & responded quickly to any questions, she even came over on Easter to fix a "problem" (it wasn't really a problem, she had been over doing some upgrades & forgot to switch a breaker back on). The small annoyances were squeaky doors that I worried would wake my 5yr old but I know Claudia will fix it when she reads this. The air conditioner blows warm air on the lanai, but the alternative would be no air conditioning so we delt with it. And, there are no window coverings in the living room, thankfully my son woke up early in the mornings but if someone is sleeping on the pull out sofa & want to sleep in they would probably be annoyed. Again, those are nitpicky things & there are nitpicky things ANYWHERE you go! I already have recommended this to several people who saw pics of my view on social media & our family would happily stay here again!

I expected to find accommodations equivalent to a luxury hotel. This was far from the case.

  • 1 of 5

I expected to find accommodations equivalent to a luxury hotel. This was far from the case.

Upon arrival we found the unit had not been cleaned. Shortly thereafter the cleaning person arrived and told us we were not expected until the following day. I showed her our confirmation which clearly indicated we were correct - cleaning took 4 hours so we effectively lost 1/2 a day of vacation - because we could not unpack and settle in.

We found both TV inoperative. This took two days to get fixed. I had to reach out to the rental agent (Claudia) several times as I found she does not return phone call promptly. For our trouble, in a voice mail, she promised to "buy us a nice dinner or something" ... I never heard from her again while we were in Maui.

The unit is advertised as "Penthouse" - my understanding of that word implies an especially nice unit on the top floor of a building generally bigger and offering more amenities than other units in the same structure. This penthouse is nothing more than one of the many identical units in the same building. The view featured in the lead picture is not a view from this unit. It appears to be a view from the building roof-top barbecue area. I find this misleading as the picture is labeled "Best view directly from your Lanai."

We found several items in the unit that needed maintenance, repair or replacement. For example one of the towel racks in the master bath is broken off the wall exposing large holes. The towel ring in the same bath falls off the wall when used. There is no light in the kitchen other than a very dim light on the hood over the stove. As a result, it is nearly impossible to use the kitchen after dark. The light switch in the second bedroom is broken. The light switch in the master bedroom does not operate a light. The ice maker in the refrigerator door is inoperative. The drain in the guest bath tub is partly plugged and drains very slowly. The drapes in the master bedroom look like they were purchased in Walmart 10 years ago. They are just rags hung from a curtain rod with no operating hardware; not what one would expect in a luxury penthouse.

The VRBO listing indicates the unit is equiped with a stereo. This is not true.

I summary, I expected to find accommodations equivalent to a luxury hotel. This was far from the case.

Unhappy with unite and VRBO

  • 1 of 5

When you review this listing ignore the first photo- full on of the ocean - it says "best view directly from your lanai". That view doesn't exist from this lanai.. When I challenged the manager on this issue, her response was that the view " is representative of the building!". VRBO is NOT supposed to be representative! You are supposed to get exactly what you see. This penthouse unit is very close to Kihei road. NOISY. Could not leave windows open at night so as to listen to the waves crashing. Just trucks and motor cycles. The 2nd phot is the actual view. We never had sun on the lanai for even a minute. The linens are well used as are the towels. The lounger on the lanai is stained and the kitchen lights - well don't seem to exist. There were four mismatched coffee cups, some with stains or minor cracks inside. Gross. If this unit had the ocean view I expected I would still have given it a low rating - maybe average. But the lack of sun, the noise and the second rate linens! I do not recommend this unit.
