We booked this Unit through our Travel Agent. We were not disappointed in the Least. We stayed in Bldg 8, Unit 407. This unit had a 2 Single Beds on the Main Floor, a Full Bathroom and Washer Dryer. (We had to provide our own Soap and Fabric Softener, but that's not a big deal.) A beautiful Spiral Staircase leads to the loft, where there's a Queen Size Bed and an amazing Bathroom. There is plenty of Storage all over the Condo. Our family of 4 was able to empty all of our Suitcases into the Dressers, and closets with plenty of room to spare. We were about a 5 minute walk from the Beach, but that's the perfect distance as far as we're concerned. We were also less than a 5 min walk from the Pool and the BBQ stations. The Grounds are beautiful and well kept. The Pool is very popular and busy, but no different than any other resort we stayed at.
We found Beach Chairs, mats, a Cooler, snorkel sets and pretty much everything you'd need to enjoy the Beautiful beach Across the way. There's a nice little reef a couple hundred feet off the shore. We saw many beautiful Fish, Eels, and a few large turtles.
Bldg 8 is a nice distance away from the busy South Kihei Road, and about a 8 min walk from Fred's Mexican Diner. (Which is a nice family type restaurant.)
The Condo had everything we needed as far as cooking goes: pots, pans, cutlery etc.
The Condo also had a Desktop Computer in the unit, as well as free wifi. There's cable and a few TV's, so my son and I were able to catch the latest episode of the Walking Dead while we were in Maui.
The condo could use a splash of Paint, and some of the shelves in the fridge were broken, but we considered these to be of no consequence.
I'd highly recommend this condo. We're already planning our return trip, but may come down a month Earlier, in September. We are a family of 4, mom, dad, 18 year old daughter and a 12 year old son. We loved this unit. We're from Alberta, and did not look forward to returning to the -25 Temps that greeted us.
If you plan on being in Maui on a Saturday, make it a point to travel to the MAUI SWAP MEET at the College. Buy ALL your souvenirs there. You'll literally spend half the money you'd spend buying stuff on the strip. (and may even find some REAL Hawaiian Trinkets that don't say "MADE IN CHINA")
On a side note: 8 days is not enough time to spend in Maui. Please budget for a minimum of 10 days. You won't regret it, I promise.
I'm including a Picture of the Resort Map, which may be helpful in choosing the building that you may want to stay in.
