About Carole Eiserloh
Lothar was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and Carole was born in Brooklyn, NY, but we both spent our early years in Los Angeles, and went to UCLA. We moved to San Francisco in 1967 where Lothar was a Juvenile Probation Officer, and Carole a high school English and history teacher,librarian and community college instructor. We made our first trip to Hawaii in 1975 and decided it was where we wanted our vacation home. We have 2 sons, Eric, an educator and Kris, an architect, who has given us 3 lively grandsons and a beautiful grand-daughter, ages 24 to 8. The whole family loves swimming and snorkeling, and We spent many years SCUBA diving around the world. Now that we're retired we spend most of the year in Hawaii enjoying its beauty, the beaches, the weather and the wonderful Aloha spirit of the people.
Carole Eiserloh purchased this Condo in 1991
Why Carole Eiserloh chose Kihei
We fell in love with our Kihei Alii Kai condo at first sight. Spacious rooms, a cathedral ceiling and the property amenities were many. We loved the spectacular ocean views and easy walking distance to the Kamaole Beaches - among the very best in Maui for swimming, snorkeling and boogie boarding, or just relaxing on the soft white sand with a good book. The property amenities, the ease of traveling to any point on the island and proximity to our shopping needs all made Kihei Alii Kai a perfect vacation home for us and our family. We now have a new hiking trail which begins at the Kamaole Beaches and continues all the way to Wailea. The path is easily traversed and is completely off the roadway. There are wonderful views and beach access is readily available. Restaurants dot the path in Wailea so stopping for a bite to eat or a drink is easy to do before your trip back home. Our son Eric enjoys paddling with local canoe groups and Kris has his choice of golf courses within minutes of our condo. Our grandkids race to the beach each morning and spend the day boogie boarding, swimming and playing in the surf. We also love to jump in the ocean each morning and snorkel to see the turtles and explore the reefs.
What makes this Condo unique

We want them to have all the comforts of home, including a renovated kitchen, a 42" Smart cable TV and Wifi.

9 Days at Kihei
We really liked the location. Close to nice beaches. Great snorkelling just down the hill from Condo. Saw 7 sea turtles one morning. Carole was very good at following up on any questions or concerns. When we had an issue it was resolved immediately followed by a text and phone call from cleaners, and a call from the owner to ensure our satisfaction- Wow! Enjoyed sitting on lanai taking in the view. Was 33 C everyday so we utilized the air conditioning to cool down unit after being out. Good central location for access to many of the attractions in Maui. Awesome vacation.
So glad you enjoyed your vacation. Maui is a wonderful place, and we agree that our location is ideal. We love our Kamaole beaches too. In the winter you can actually watch the whales blow from our Lanai. Hope you'll be able to return.

Awesome week in Kihei
Carole is a terrific hostess. She is easy to communicate with and quick to respond to emails. She also lays out the instructions beautifully and makes the arrival effortless. The unit was as described and the view was better than I ever expected. The lanai is stocked with everything you need. Coolers, snorkel gear and beach chairs etc. Well stocked kitchen with everything needed to cook at home. Great washer and dryer for doing laundry and freshening beach towels midway thru your visit. The beds had super soft sheets and very were comfortable.
The pool was immaculately clean with new BBQs adjacent to it and additional BBQs closer to the unit. Easy parking and the location of the condo is fantastic. We saw turtles every day at Kam I and could easily walked to the beach with the backpack chairs. We would also walk to dinner and shopping. Many great restaurants, coffee places, bars, the ABC store and natural food market as well. Kihei is so centrally located that it’s faster to tour other parts of the island from there as well. We did the glass blowing in Lahaina, snorkel boat to Coral Gardens, Iao Valley hike and also Mama’s Fish House in Paia. One of the best vacations we have ever had and we would for sure stay in Carole’s unit again.
Mahalo Gayle for the lovely review. I’m so glad our condo met all your needs. We have always tried to make our guests feel at home, with a terrific view to add to their enjoyment. I do hope you’ll be able to return to enjoy more of what our beautiful island has to offer. With Aloha, Carole
This was the best ever
Renting from Carol was the best experience ever ! The beds were so comfy and she had everything you could ever ask for in the condo . She was so accommodating! I definitely stay there again ! Thanks for the best stay we have had to date ❤️❤️❤️🥰�
So happy you enjoyed your stay. We always want our guests to feel at home.
Absolutely loved the view!
I kept coming back to this listing because I loved the view from the condo. It didn't disappoint; every morning it made me feel so happy to see it. I also loved the fact that it was on the 4th floor (the top), and had a natural setting in front of it. We got to enjoy a variety of birds and small lizards, rather than parking lots, or street views and noises.
The elevator was very handy, as we usually had beach equipment & coolers (provided by the owners) and groceries to haul around. The location was very convenient to the best beaches (in our opinion) that were just below the condo across the street. It was also close to many restaurants and bars, as well as a variety of stores. We always had plenty of parking spaces at the condo, although we often walked to many places nearby.
We appreciated how well stocked the condo was. It was very easy to cook meals and clean up as everything was provided that we would need for that. I was able to wash our clothes, beach towels, etc. with the large washer & dryer, and again, a new bottle of detergent and dryer sheets were there to use. It was so nice to not have to go out and buy all those things.
Our bed was very comfortable and all the rooms had ceiling and table or floor fans. Most of the time we just opened the screen door and ran the fans, which kept the temperature just right. On a few very humid days we ran the AC for a short time. The shower had plenty of hot water and good water pressure.
The TV had many choices of things to watch - but who wants to do that when you could walk down the street to the beach and watch the sunset?
We appreciated having the opportunity to email back & forth with the owners, and they answered my questions about places they liked to eat, buy fresh fish and produce, etc. We followed their advice and we were very pleased in each case. Thank you Carole and Lothar for sharing your condo with us, and for your friendly advice on places to go and things to do in Maui! We enjoyed our stay very much!
Mahalo Lisa and Larry for your lovely comments. We are so happy you enjoyed staying in our condo and that everything was to your satisfaction. We do want our guests to feel completely at home. We're glad you loved our ocean view as much as we do - and how close we are to our wonderful Kamaole beaches. We hope you will be able to return again soon.

The owners were very helpful and easy to contact. The condo was very well stocked, clean, quiet and close to the beach.
We always try to meet the needs of our visitors. What did we miss to earn a 5? You are the first 4 we’ve ever received, and we are curious as to how we fell short, especially since your comments were all positive.
