No point in repeating what has already been said. Great spot and Condo all around. The only thing will mention is you better love the sound of birds because during the daylight hours it is a never-ending song!! But we enjoyed it. Had a strangely calming effect. We had to actually think about hearing them.
Kudos to Brenda for staying on top of providing information and a well set up and stocked accommodations. We also the complex and access to it second to none!!!(that we have had the pleasure of renting in our years of travel)
Like being at our own place: beach front property, walking distance to groceries, restaurants and (unfortunately) medical clinics & pharmacies. It was a great change from our past trips to Maui, and Kihei is a fantastic location, centrally located on the island (without the massive resort complexes everywhere). The condo had everything we needed (and more) and was perfect for our trip (which is coaching of water sports activities). We'll book this again next year!
We used to go to Hawaii on a fairly regular basis, but have opted for more exotic-less touristy locations in the past several decades. As water sport coaches, we decided to scope out several locations in the Hawaiian Islands to potentially bring a group for training in the future, and selected Kihei as a "base" for our visit to Maui; being significantly less crowded/commercial than our usual places near Kaanapali Beach. After exhausting research for places to stay (daunting, with so many choices), we picked this location since it was beach-front, was only 2 story (with ours being on top to avoid noisy upstairs neighbors) and was centrally located on the island to give us a chance to check out all the beaches (and reasonably priced!). It was EXACTLY what we wanted! Aside from working out details on how to store our boards and equipment, it offered us everything we hoped for, without being around all of the high rise resorts and parking hassles. Fully equipped condo, with a great kitchen allowing us to cook our own meals when we wanted, but walking distance to some awesome restaurants when we ate out. Major grocery stores locally and one just across the street. The balcony provided a great view of the gardens, pool and ocean, and a lot of the amenities of the complex (gas BBQ's, etc) we never even got around to use. The beach in front of this property was never crowded (we used it every day) and sea turtles were everywhere (a few were even on the beach). Bedroom was air conditioned, so any potential outside noise was never heard while we slept (and we're light sleepers). Well maintained and decorated...we absolutely loved it, and it felt like our own place. Staying here really improved our view of Maui, and are planning a return trip in '18 to stay there! Barbara, the owner, kept in regular contact to make sure everything was to our satisfaction.
We spent 9 wonderful days in this condo. The interior is beautifully remodeled with new cabinets, granite counter tops, new appliances and beautiful furniture. There is an air conditioner in the bedroom that really does a good job of keeping it cool for sleeping. However, after the first few nights, we slept with the windows and doors open and it was very pleasant without A/C. The view from the lanai is of the beautiful gardens and the beach. It's on the north side of the building so it does not get the direct sun. Times market is right across the street so we would walk over every morning and get a fresh pastry to have with our fresh pineapple. Plenty of restaurants near by. Try Cuatro. Less than a mile. Right next to Foodland. Small, intimate and excellent seafood. Make a reservation. If you are a golfer, Maui Nui golf course is less than a mile. Very nice course. We are very happy we are staying here again next year - 2 weeks this time.
Condo was beautifully decorated and king bed was the best! Condo was well stocked with dishes, pans, knives, everything one would need to eat in. We enjoyed our time there and wish we could have stayed longer. Location was close to incredible beaches and condo even had its own beach; close to dive shop and boat dock, grocery stores, and the wonderful restaurant Coconuts Fish Café, which is not to be missed if you love fish tacos. Perfect for a couple!
We've just returned from our trip to Maui & had a fabulous time. The condo is in a perfect location a few steps through the gardens to the beach with a fabulous view from the balcony of the garden, pool & beach. With many properties in Kihei you have to cross a road to the beach, but this is in a quiet location on the beach. There's a supermarket & restaurants nearby so the location is perfect. The pool is a nice addition so if it is windy on the beach in the afternoon you can sit by the pool instead. The condo is really well equipped & furnished to a high standard. It has everything you need in the condo & also has beach chairs, an umbrella, beach towels & cool boxes. The large bed is really comfortable & the condo just felt like home for us. Brenda, the owner was extremely helpful & answered all of our queries. I would definitely book again & without doubt if returning to Maui we will book this condo!
We really enjoyed our stay in Kihei - location was great, close to the beach and shopping center. Very quiet area, great for a relaxing week. The free parking was great for our rental car and we could always find a close spot. It can get a little warm in the apartment during the day but the AC unit in the bedroom kept us very comfortable at night. Would love to stay here again on our next visit!
