This place is wonderful! This is our third time staying here and we won't hesitate to keep coming back. We stayed in building 3 and had the best view. We've stayed in other buildings before, but building 3 is the best as far as view goes. The unit is older but is very well maintained. The furniture is clean, the... More

We were so pleased with the time we spent here on our recent trip to Maui. We only needed one repair (a lamp) and it was done within an hour of our request. The condo was large, well-equipped, comfortable, and clean. It's in a great location and everyone there was wonderful.

We loved the sandy beach of this resort for our family vacation. We rented a penthouse unit with spectacular ocean view with tons of room for 2 families. The price for the size, view and beachfront was by far the best value in Maui North. The restaurant bar is good with a nice adult and kids pool on either side... More

This is a very nice place for the price. My family and another family who traveled with us stayed there from April 5 - April 12 this year. We were in room 154 (building 1, 5th floor, room 4). The room had two bedrooms and plenty of room for our two families to live very comfortably for the week we... More

This would be a one star except it does have. nice beach . The place was last updated in the mid 80's. No AC and every unit bedroom Windows's open onto a atrium shared with every unit and that is also the access to every unit, so if some group comes in at2:00 am everyone in the building hears it....

Came during Spring Break 2015 and rented through a private owner. Just FYI, Private owners will generally have A/C vs. RCI properties. Our room was nothing like a condo. It had a spacious living room and hallways. Made you feel if you were in an apartment not the typical tube condo. This unit was very nicely appointed and furniture comfortable.... More

Units are much larger than most any others we have seen in Hawaii. In general one-bedrooms should be avoided if you are interested in a view, since they are on the first floor (above the garage...so no patio). The units are nicely furnished in a relaxed style (if you want stainless steel and marble countertops, you need a large hotel... More

We are coming out at the end of November this year (2015) to SOK; we have been owners for 18 years. It is true that depending on where you are placed in the resort, your experience at SOK can be amazing---or dreadful.
