I've stayed at a few different condominium complexes around Kihei and this has been my least favorite. The beach it's on is so disappointing. It's rocky and full of dead broken coral. I never even got in the water because you can't see the bottom and you'll probably cut up your feet on all the ruble. The only people using... More

We booked our honeymoon plans and thought this would be a good value and we wanted to have a full kitchen. As soon as we arrived, we felt cheated. There was a bait and switch of epic proportions. The room we stayed in "205" was nothing like the pictures it was a smelly, outdated roach motel. We checked in at... More

For us the condo experience was a bit different from the traditional hotel since the room appeared to be organized differently, in the sense that it 'forces' you to feel at home so your things get very easily scattered around lol... it was quiet and the desk staff was very responsive to our requests. The location is excellent because it's... More

Condo is in a great location and very well maintained. We stayed in #629, Larry & Joan Laity are the owners. Great ocean view, close to restaurants. Kihei is a great location to stay while in Maui. It is not in the resort areas (which we did not want to be close to), but close enough to drive to the... More

I stayed in unit 623 and it was perfect. Newly updated and very comfortable and inviting. I loved the unit and the view from the lanai. They provided everything I needed. I had no need to cook, but there are grills by the pool and they seemed to be nicely set up. I thought the pool was too small and... More

It's always a chance you take renting a condo with an individual owner but the management company made it easy to do. This unit was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit and very roomy. The master shower wasn't as big as the other bathroom but useable. Everything was in good working order and clean. The beds were extremely hard and... More

Nothing at all against the owners of the condo we stayed in, it was lovely, but the resort is a whole different story. I like to refer to it as"Kihei Correctional Facility". There are SO many rules and regulations, I don't have room to list them all, so I'll point out the highlights. First, if you are a smoker or... More

This was our first trip to Maui and the condo was inadvertently booked as we normally stay in a regular hotel. I used Trip Advisor for the booking process, which went very well, in and of itself. So, my other half was a bit apprehensive to say the least. However, the large studio apartment worked out very well. It was... More

Maui is an enchanted island, as millions of travelers already know, but it has remained unspoiled in so many ways. When you book a condo you're 'at home' on the island and able to relax with a nice balance of locals and tourists. Maui is so easy to navigate and people are very friendly and helpful if you have a... More

Just got back from a wonderful anniversary trip to Village By the Sea. Booked thru VRBO, first time ever using them. Great first time experience. Our condo was exactly like it looked in the pictures. Everything we needed was there....cooking supplies, chairs, umbrella, beach towels. The sunset from the beach out front is simply amazing!! We used the gas grills... More
