Maui Kamaole

Reviewed September 3, 2012

This was our first trip to Maui and with 2 toddlers and grandma in tow, this condo made our trip a breeze.

The layout made it fairly easy to baby-proof. We baby-gated the front door and stairs to the loft bedroom with one gate. The main lanai with walls on either side and a lattice-style railing made for a safe outdoor space for the kids to wander in/out of. The kitchen cabinets do not have pulls on them so the kids never bothered them.

We put the newer washer/dryer to great use. And we really appreciated the kitchen and master bath upgrades with granite countertops and decorative touches.

The view is wonderful. Not only can you not see the road between the condo property and the beach, you can't hear it either. This condo complex is huge (2 pools!) and peaceful. It is spectacularly landscaped and so quiet.

When we come back to Maui, we will definitely stay here again.

This was our first trip to Maui and we didn’t have any idea where we should stay. After booking a resort but reading some less than flattering reviews, we looked into other accomodations and found Maui Kamaole in south Kihei.

Everything about this property was perfect for us: the location was convenient, whether to walk to Kamaole and Keawakapu beaches, or to go into Kihei town and pick up groceries at Times or have a bite at Coconuts. The waterfall pool, just steps from our lanai, is an oasis amongst the lovely grounds. We enjoyed having breakfast on the lanai while being amused by the birds and the geckos in the morning sunshine. The condo was very clean and comfortable, nicely furnished with a fully equipped kitchen and ice maker fridge, A/C, W/D, comfortable modern furniture, cozy king bed. Everything we needed for the beach, snorkelling gear, beach chairs, cooler, towels, boogie boards, was provided in the closet. When we asked if the tap water was ok to drink, which it is, the owners even provided a Brita filter.

Dealing with the owners Fred and Mary was a pleasure. The ease in making our reservation, communications regarding any questions or concerns, and the friendliness of the owners all made us feel completely welcome in their condo and we really enjoyed staying in Maui Kamaole. We cannot wait to go back.

We stayed in A204. It was a very nicely decorated 2 bedroom unit with a spectacular ocean view. The downstairs bedroom had twin beds which was perfect for my teenage kids and my husband and I had the upstairs loft bedroom which had a nice kingsize bed. Lots of closet space and hangers in the closets. The washer and dryer seemed to be new and were great to have. The kitchen was nicely renovated and had just about everything we needed. Nice stainless steel pots, cutlery, knives, glasses, etc. I usually end up contributing something to every condo we stay in, this time it was a plastic colander.

The owner, Jack, was great to deal with and helpful in providing tips on things to do. They have renovated the upstairs bathroom beautifully and plan to renovate the downstairs bathroom in the next couple of years. The downstairs bathroom was clean but my kids were a little perturbed as there were tiny miniscule bugs around the sink and on the counter. Not a big problem though. I'm sure it can be easily dealt with as there was a tiny place in the wall where they seem to be coming from.

The lanai was stocked with a medium sized cooler, snorkelling stuff ( we didn't use it as we had our own), beach chairs, beach mats, noodles, boogie boards ( my kids had a great time with these ) and there were beach towels in the closet. We had everything we needed.

The Maui Kamaole is a beautiful property and far enough away from the main road so that there are no issues with noise. High quality Webber BBQs all over the property and nice pools.

Great location. Only about 25-30 min from the airport. We drove everywhere. Safeway is very close and so is Coconuts Cafe - awesome fish tacos.

Overall, the condo was very comfortable and lots of space for a family of four.

Thanks Jack, we had a great trip!

Just got back from staying at the Maui Kamaole (I-205) with another couple. This was a two bedroom unit with two bathrooms, full kitchen, nice lanai, and good living room.

Configuration

This was a two bedroom unit. The main bedroom was in the loft area upstairs. It was open, but could be easily closed off with the large shutter blinds that gave privacy. It was a king sized bed with a great mattress and nice soft sheets and quality pillows.

The bathroom was nice and the shower was a walk-in with good pressure and comfortable. There was a lanai off the bedroom. This was not used much as we chose to use the main lanai.

The 2nd bedroom was on the main floor and had a very comfortable 4-poster queen with a really good mattress and again nice sheets. It had a TV and again a nice lanai, which we didn't use.

The 2nd bathroom was good with a bathtub and nice shower again with good pressure. It only had one sink but my wife and I coped!

The kitchen was nicely appointed with good appliances. It was a bit small if all 4 of us were working on dinner but that was a small thing.

The TV room was nice - big 50 inch TV that had all the channels. The couches and chairs were the only downside. They really were not comfortable (the couch turned into a bed if you need it) if we all were there.

The lanai was nice with a retractable awning that was nice when the sun was really hot.

Overall the unit was clean with little extras like beach chairs and boogie boards available for use.

The Location

The unit is just above Kamaole III beach that was a 1 minute drive or 5 minute walk. The beach was great and we spent tonnes of time there. Overall the location was good and most stuff just a quick drive. We spent a few days at Big Beach which was 10 minutes away and other days just going ziplining, surfing, or paddle boarding.

This was a great condo that I can easily recommend.

My family and I stayed at Maui Kamaole (unit M-110) on our first trip to this island. The unit was well equipped for a comfortable stay, it's beautiful, clean and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. The pullout sofa has extra pad for a comfortable & restful sleep. We enjoyed the lanai and a wonderful view of the lush garden. The swimming pool and spa are just a few steps away. Beautiful beaches are close by; Kamaole I, II, and III are very close. Beautiful Wailea and Makena are about a 5 mile drive south of Maui Kamaole complex. The restaurants in Kihei are all very close to this complex. Surf lessons at Kamaole Beach I are about a 5 minute drive away. Kamaole Beach III is about a 5 minute walk away, lots of rental shops for paddle boards and surf boards on the way. Beautiful sunsets can be enjoyed from these beaches. Airport is about 20-25 minutes away. Overall, I can't wait to go again.

Room Tip: Units in back are closer to the nicer pool and spa. Get a unit that has beach gear; towels, boogie...

My husband and I and our teenage boys stayed at the Maui Kamaole on our first visit to Maui and the entire family was extremely pleased with the condo complex and unit which was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. Unlike most hotels and many condos, Maui Kamoale consists of multiple small buildings. The building where we stayed consisted of 2-1 bedroom units downstairs and 2-2 bedroom units upstairs. We stayed in D211 (a 2-bedroom, 2 bath) and it was very quiet even with folks occupying the adjoining 2 bedroom unit. Our teenage boys enjoyed having their own bedroom and separate beds. And the loft bedroom and bathroom were perfect for my husband and me.
It was nice to be able to make coffee and breakfast every morning in the well equipped kitchen which included a coffee grinder. We spent our mornings on the lanai enjoying the beautiful grounds and sat out there in the evenings, listening to the surf and marveling at the brilliance of the stars and the milky way. Being Texans, air conditioning is very important to us; the AC units in this condo worked great. The wireless internet was fast.
The condo is equipped with beach towels and beach equipment such as noodles and boogie boards. Having a washer and dryer was very useful after taking hikes on muddy trails or playing on the beach. The rental price was very reasonable and the owner was great to deal with. I would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to all of my friends looking for accommodations in Maui.

Room Tip: This unit has a Foodland Maika'i tag. Using the tag resulted in good discounts on groceries.

We stayed in A-106 from July 2 - 6, 2012 and were wowed by the location and decor of this unit. Someone spent a great deal of time and effort to decorate and furnish this unit. It was like staying at home. I would challenge anyone to try to find something they would require at their own home and rest assured you will find it here. Even spices, tea bags, corn syrup etc. etc. and I even found a strainer in the kitchen drawers. A complete set of beach ware, chairs, surfboards, sandals and even lots of sunscreen lotions. The location and view of the ocean is fantastic and you can enjoy the sunset from your backyard... I would love to go there again.... the check-in late at night was a breeze, just picked up the phone, the girl on the other side guided to open the locker to pick up my envelope that had thee code to our condo.

Simply superb...would go there in a heartbeat to stay.
