We stayed for 6 nights in December 2009. This place was perfect for us. We too had unit 203 and while the furniture is dated the location is spectacular and the rooms were nice and big. The best part is the lenai - big enough for an outdoor table and chairs, the perfect place to play a game of cards and have a glass of wine. The nice thing is that this place is quiet - no road noise, no noise from neighbors. They also have everything you would want there -beach towels, a cooler you can take for the day, beach chairs, (and a blow dryer for you ladies). Since it is a public park from the condo to the beach, there are many people there at sunset to watch the show - it is SO beautiful. We did not walk to any restaurants as there is not a sidewalk and at times the traffic can be busy, but within 2 miles there were many great restaurants. We loved Cuatro and also Sensei for nicer meals, and Antonios and Vietnamese Cuisine for cheaper spots. Maui is an expensive place to visit so this was really a good place at a great price - and a good way to save a few bucks by making your own breakfast and packing a few lunches. The kitchen has a full fridge and freezer and all the things you need to cook and eat. The other great thing about staying in Kiehi is that no attraction is very far from it - 90 minutes to the top of the crater, 3 - 4 hours to Hana (with many stops along the way)
I would also recommend going to the Big Beach, the Iao needle and the Nakalele blowhole. All close by and great stuff to see along the way. Another nice feature is the laundry facility there - about a $2 to wash and dry a load. Like others have said, if you like a resort atmosphere, this is NOT for you, but if you want a safe, clean condo with an awesome location, this spot is great!
