I was "upgraded" to this property by Maui Condo & Home. I called the management company several times after I read several scathing reviews on line. I was assured that I would be happy with this property - and I was. It is clean, comfortable and more than adequate as a home base for work and play. The unit is... More

I just returned from a wonderful stay in Maui. Kauhale Makai unit 412 was just fully remodeled and the place is spectacular! Everything is brand new and it's just perfect. The views from every room are amazing and we could not have been more pleased with this slice of paradise. If you have a chance, you should treat yourself to... More

My husband and daughter and myself staying in unit 108 from July 2-9 2015. We had a wonderful stay here and enjoyed the condo very much. Very clean with everything you needed. The pool area was very clean and quiet. We rented a car to get around. Lots of sightseeing to do here in Maui, but it was nice coming... More

We (2 couples) stayed at Village by the Sea in unit number 514 for 8 nights/9 full days in June 2015. It was our first trip to Maui. We chose this condo mainly for two reasons: (1) its central location; and (2) two nice seemingly equal bedrooms both with full on ocean views (many 2BR condos have a second room... More

We arrived here the day they were fumigating the outside as well as the inside of the condos. Wasn't happy about that so we left for the day. Next day major construction in the vacant property right next door to our patio. This complex is located on the major road but is right on the beach. Bring something for your... More

The complex had all the usual facilities but our dining / living room was full of flying insects that congregated around the lights. They had some big ones that looked like beetles and they kept dropping onto the dining table. We ended up buying some bug spray. Sheets didn't fit the bed in the double bedded room so every morning... More

So the good: Very inexpensive and good location to activities. Front desk employee was very nice and helpful. The bad: Food on dishes and utensils; some brown crusty stuff on washcloths, "beach" towels regular size; looks right out, from all views on the lanai, at the parking lot; Scott from Waikiki rentals was a jerk and not helpful at all;...

We stayed for 5 nights in unit 335, and had a view from both bedrooms and a beachfront lanai - it was very relaxing. Loved walking on the beach during sunset and enjoyed the location of this property. This area of Kihei is a little away from the centre but still close enough to the various beaches. The atmosphere was... More

We stayed in unit 512 for 2 weeks. The unit is very dirty and is in need of major cleaning. I brought this to the attention of the management company, along with the fact that the couch is torn in so many places I'm not sure how long it will hold together for. Stay was ok, but could have been... More

Unit 634 has everything you need to enjoy a Maui vacation. Just bring your own cereal. The unit has extra towels and sheets for those who are staying longer than one week and there is a cooler, umbrella, chairs, snorkeling masks, and boogey board for the beach. The view from the balcony is outstanding and the sunset is directly in... More
