Outstanding, every convenience (washer, dryer, mw, internet, cable TV), very clean and beautifully appointed. We stayed in 201, our adult kids had 207 and good friends stayed in 301...all where great (301 was the best) by just a smidgen. Could not believe that we were smack dab in front of the ocean--drop dead gorgeous views from all the lanais. Convenient to great shopping and Lappert's ice cream store, Peggy Sue's, etc. We had a party of 11 people, ages 12-70 and there were absolutely no complaints! We are ready to go back in a heartbeat.

This was our 4th trip to the islands and the accommodations were by far the best, no ka oi. Wonderful and great and quick correspondence with Linda B. A++++++++++

We stayed in unit 502 in late September 07 and had a great stay. We agree with the majority of the prior positive reviews. The unit was clean and extremely well equipped. The two a/c units kept all of the rooms very comfortable even with 89-degree afternoon temps. IMO, noise from the street is a non-issue unless you want to open the bedroom windows at night. Internet speed is excellent and the unit included an extremely long cable that allowed connection from any room in the condo. The only issue we had was an occasional smell in the bathroom but it wasn’t bad enough to affect our opinion of the unit.

We were very satisfied with the management team; they were helpful and courteous. Koa Lagoon was great value for the price. We also stayed at the Marriott Wailea and the Koa Lagoon is clearly the better value.

My husband & I have just returned from the most wonderful vacation ever. It was truly 10 days of HEAVEN ON EARTH! We stayed at Koa Lagoon (Unit 303)& could NOT have been happier. It was a wonderful experience from the beginning to end. This property has been so well maintained. The grounds are beautiful! The condo was very well stocked with everything we needed. The large lanai was our favorite. The view is unbelieveable. We loved watching the sunsets every evening. A must do in our opinion is the Warren & Annabelle show. You really can't tell someone about it, you just have to experience it. Call early because the shows sell out quickly! We are looking forward to returning as soon as possible & will definitely be staying at Koa Lagoon! In our opinion it is the best!

Just got back from hopping around the Islands... Koa Lagoon was by far the best of our stays! Peaceful, quite, felt like being home. If you are looking for the quite getaway with the very best views of tranquility... Koa Lagoon #503. Mahalo

Very well-run but laid-back older Kihei condominium project that makes the very most of its location. Koa Lagoon appears to date back to the 1970s, but a good maintenance program, a forgiving environment, and good original design combine to shave years off the building. Top-of-the-line views from the lanais complement a wonderful side-entrance unit design that avoids the usual "hallway-past-the-bedrooms-to-the-living-space" layout, and gives a very gracious and spacious feel to the units which, though smaller than more recently constructed condos, seem much larger. Lanais can have a quirky design that somewhat limits their usefulness, but there is still room for four or more to dine comfortably. The kitchen, in particular, was well thought-out with enough room for two-to-three people to work simultaneously. The entrances to the units are laid out to create a sense of privacy that many projects of this vintage lack, and the elevator was particularly welcome in this 6-story building. Koa Lagoon, like all other buildings to the south, are set back from the ocean by 200-300 hundred feet (perhaps because the land was created by dredging?) but this does not detract from the views. The neighboring project, Menehune Shores, is built right to the shoreline, but its bulk does not compromise the views greatly and the landscaping minimizes the visual impact of that very large structure. Much is made of the seaweed and beach problem at Koa Lagoon but we observed several swimmers and kayakers in the water. There is no surf to speak of and with so many world-class beaches only minutes away, we came to prefer the beach since it does not attract more than one or two visitors at any time adding to the peacefulness and serenity that seems to be the hallmark of this area. The site forces the building to be very close to Kihei road which has become much noisier in recent years due to increasingly numbers of knob-tired pick-ups and SUVs. Luckily, the units have window A/C units in each bedroom, the noise of which completely drown out any road noise--we slept perfectly. Overall the project has limited, though attractive gardens, and a miniature koi pond which was probably deemed exotic in 1975 and is now just quaintly interesting. The staff is friendly, helpful, efficient, accommodating, and non-intrusive again adding to the "we'll-leave-you-alone" atmosphere that my family came to love. Central Kihei location puts the entire island in easy driving distance and necessary shopping is close-by (Safeway at the Pi'ilani Plaza and Star Market at Kihei and Lipoa), though it is a distance to the nightclubs and bars at Kalama Center. Peaceful and tranquil, hard to give the property andything other than a top-rating.

We stayed at the Koa Logoon in June 2007. We stayed in condo 402 and had an absolutely wonderful time. Great location, nicely decorated, good price, not crowded. Huge, Huge lanai that we spent most of our time on. Linda Barron at the Realty Office was wonderful to deal with. Condo owners had beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, snorkle, fins, mask, beach mats etc all ready for us to use. Beaches great, excellent snorkling. Don't expect to swim at the condo beach as there is a seaweed problem, they do clean it up every morning, we had no problem with any bad smells. Condo pool and access to gas grills excellent.
If we do decide to go back to Maui, we will absolutely stay there again. We highly recommend this property to all.

Been looking for a long time for a place to stay in Maui, and finaly found it on this site, thanks for all the comments on this place. Its really amazing, got the perfect little place for what we needed.
Amazing view of the beach, Very well equipped. All you need is to go shopping for some food and stock up your fridge.
We rented a car and went to the wailea beach every other day because the beach over there is better. Other than that, amazing location. Close to everything, stores, airport, wailea, lahaina and haleakala. Kihei is almost in the center if you wanna tour Maui. Be sure to say Hi to Linda who was a lot of help in finding anything you need on this beautiful Island, we will definetly skip the hotels and stay there next time we go. we did not hear any streets noises as marked in other reviews.
