If you are looking for a budget friendly location, Kihei is it. We stayed at Kauhale Makai, a well kept condo complex. It has all the basic amenities (beach for walking, not swimming though). Definitely do your research on units, as there is a wide variety of quality here. Pictures on rental site (Maui Condo and Home) were very helpful.... More

We were there for 16 days, and are so glad we found Court's Condo to stay in. Way more bang for your buck than a hotel room. Like described there is everything you need in there. Decorated so nice, loved all the beautiful mirrors, Comfy bed, loved the shower, great kitchen, great view, BBQ area was always spotless, which my... More

The view wasn't that good. Out our unit the view of the ocean is obstructed by an ugly hill of hideous "grass". The rules for the pool are ridiculous. No toys no fins no splashing. The "putting green" is a small and a waste of space. The grassy areas have a lot of "potholes" I have personally have sprained my... More

This was our first time to Maui and did enjoy our time there. I'm sorry to say our condo did not meet my expectations. Please understand that I'm very fussy about a clean room. This condo was not clean. The plastic plants should be thrown out, there's coating of dust on them. There was a smell that came from the... More

This condo was comfortable and was a good price. It is a older building but was very clean. I had no issues with the condo and the property was great. The pool was cold so I never used it much besides to cool off a bit and the hot tub was good for the evenings. It was a quiet relaxing... More

Our condo was great with amazing views but if your children love swimming this is NOT the place for you. Residents patrol the pool for violations of their extreme rules. No fins, snorkels, balls, inflatables and no jumping into the pool. The pool is not heated which makes it very cold. Our children we're being respectful and not splashing anyone... More

Please note that every unit in this building may be different so this review is for #307 in the north building. This is one of the best deals in Maui. The unit was renovated, had a great balcony with a wonderful view of the ocean and great sunsets. The building is centrally located to the island so it's an easy... More

We have been timeshare owners for about 15 years and have spent 6 different great 2 week vacations here, mostly in February. We have stayed in 3 different rooms and have found them all clean and quiet. This isn't the Marriott, the Four Seasons, or the Grand Wailea, but you can visit these wonderful locations and do just about everything... More

I'm a frequent Maui visitor and always stay at "the village by the sea" also known as the Kauhale Makai . While this is a beachfront property,the beach is not the best but is just 5 minutes away from Sugar Beach to the north or Kam's 1,2and 3 to the south There are three quality supermarkets within a few minutes...

Where to begin? We stayed in unit 405, or aka The Love Shack. This unit was far above my expectations. Yes, I'd seen the photos of previous travelers but I feel like you just never know until you see it for yourself. With that being said, if you drive by Kauhale Makai itself you may just mistake it for an... More
