Penthouse Ocean Front is a Stretch

  • 1 of 5

This could be a cute place, though to describe it as a Penthouse Ocean Front is a stretch. Yes it is on the top floor, but one unit way from the busy S. Kihei Road, overlooking a parking lot with a peak-a-boo view of the ocean. The bed was the worst we have ever stayed on -- sagging and lumpy and to top it off it smelled like pee. When we went to examine the mattress, we removed the mattress pad and found a large pee stain in the center of the bed. It is a one sided mattress so it couldn't be turned over.

There was a good TV and radio and though the dishes were a hodge podge of styles, it was a functional kitchen. It could use some wine glasses and a working cork screw. It definitely needs more light in the living room. Overall, it really needs some serious TLC.

Hodge - Podge

  • 3 of 5

As experienced by another customer in Feb 2016, we too arrived for a nine-night stay around midnight and after 14 hours of travel time to find the condo had not been cleaned... dirty sheets on the bed and a laundry basket full of wet dirty towels in the middle of the bedroom floor. Totally disgusting !! To top it off, there was only of couple sheets of toilet paper left on the toilet paper roll. First thing in the morning, my husband went out to buy toilet paper (great way to start a vacation), while I checked in at the office. The office had no record of our visit & assured me they had not been informed of our reservation. I called Carlos, the on-site contact. Carlos apologized & informed me that he is responsible for the condo cleaning. He repeated several times that it was not his fault, as he had not been informed by owner of our reservation. Carlos cleaned the condo a couple of hours later. We were not offered any compensation whatsoever, not even a “sorry” for the aggravation. It annoyed me even more, as the owner (contrary to the VRBO reservation form) required payment in full 2 months prior to the start of our stay with no refund if cancelled. We have stayed at various VRBO properties in Hawaii on at least twelve different trips & have never encountered a payment policy this strict.

As far as the property:

Beautiful sunsets from the lanai

Air conditioning quiet and worked great

Laundry facilities conveniently located on same floor down the hall.

Unit was quiet in spite of being right off of a major road

Great location with dedicated parking spot


There is a folding door separating the living room & bedroom which does not completely close. This is a problem if one person wants to stay up & watch TV, & the other wants to sleep.

Minimal kitchen accessories – two dish towel for nine days

Surfaces of pots and pans have burn marks & finishes are worn.

Eating utensils consisted of 5 knives, 9 forks, 1 salad fork, 1 table spoon (bring plastic spoons if you come), 2 soup spoons, & 8 large serving type spoons.

If it wasn’t for the condo not being cleaned, we would recommend the unit as a fair value for the price.

Top Floor View! Everything you need, but not truly luxurious.

  • 4 of 5

A spacious, top-floor condo in a great location, this rental would have earned five stars except for some minor issues. None of the issues, by themselves, would downgrade the unit but together they are just enough to keep it from getting the very top marks. I have to agree with one of the other reviewers that the word "Penthouse" conjures up a bit more luxury than this delivers: the furnishing are comfortable and cozy, but slightly dated. The missing drawer pulls, glued-together vase, chipped tableware and lack of teaspoons leave a person who is expecting a "Penthouse" to be a small bit disappointed. BUT - the place has everything you need to feel fully at home. It IS comfortable. It IS quiet. It DOES have a fabulous view. And the location could not be better. There are even chairs and coolers to easily take a day at the beach. By the time our stay was over, we weren't noticing any negatives at all. In fact, we can't wait to go back.

Reasonable accommodation -- ocean front with views

  • 4 of 5

Each of these units are individually owned, so your experience may differ depending on the particular owner. Since they are individually owned and maintained, you cannot compare these to a commercial Marriott, Wyndham, Hilton, etc. We have stayed at this complex twice. Once in a two bedroom unit, and once in a one bedroom with sofa bed. They are stocked with all the kitchen-ware needed. Furniture is dated, but functional. Often previous renters have left paperback books, snorkel and beach gear, coolers, etc., that can be used.

In summary: Things are functional, but dated. As long as your expectations are in check, in general, no big surprises.

This one is ocean front, but there is about 100 foot grass yard to the beach. Beach is walkable, but not really swimable, as it gets very rocky just below the water level. Short drive to grocery, swimable beaches, restaurants, etc. Overall a reasonable place to stay.

Awesome Stay !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo mid-november and everything was perfect. Everything was as shown on the pictures.

Absolutely nothing negative to say except that it would have been nice to have a few more kitchen tools available... wine glass and plastic recipient in particular.

Thanks to the Anderson family !

Comfortable, clean and quiet

  • 5 of 5

I loved this condo. I was traveling by myself for a wedding and this condo fit my needs perfectly. As a woman staying alone I was a little apprehensive at first, but I felt very secure here. The furniture and bed were comfortable and the wifi was very easy to access. I didn't have a need to cook, but the kitchen had everything I would have needed for utensils and cookware. The parking spot is very close and in a great position relative to the unit. The air conditioner cooled the place down so quickly that I only needed to run it while I was actually in the unit. I loved being on the 6th floor. My unit had a lot more privacy than the 1st floor units.

Just one warning, almost all the parking spots on Maui are on the small side. I had a Nisson Ultima and some spots even seemed small for that car. So be careful to choose a vehicle that is not too wide.

The complex is located close to restaurants, shopping and beaches. The beach in front of the property is not great for swimming, but was fine for walking and wading. I enjoyed watching some people surf sailing at that beach. Swimming beaches are a few minutes drive away. I was there during tropical storm Darby and except for some strong winds, a day of cloudy weather and a little rain the weather was beautiful. This is definitely the dry spot on the island. The pool is on the small side and was not heated. When there were kids there I wasn't able to go in the pool without getting splashed. Overall I would recommend this complex and especially this unit as very nice place to stay.
