Koa Resort condo description

Aloha e komo mai! Welcome to our hale (home)! Maui is magical and there is no better place to experience it than our condo in sunniest part of the island: Kihei, in South Maui. Not only is Kihei sunny virtually every day, but it's location is central to exploring the entire island! Our ground level condo has New features for 2014 including new second sofabed in the living room, new bed linens from Macy's elite hotel line, new artwork, tiles in living room, free wi-fi, and new flat screen TV with tons of channels, DVD player and some of my favorite Hawaii themed popular movies!

Wake up in your KING SIZE FOUR POST BED (a $3000 Simmons Beautyrest pillow top mattress) and a stunning view of Haleakala (Maui's 10,000+ ft volcano). If you wake early enough, you'll see a fantastic show of colors in the sky from your bedroom window! Enjoy coffee on the spacious tiled lanai (patio) as you sit in the chaise lounge or at the table that seats 4. Take a quick stroll (about 40 steps) to the gigantic bluer than blue pool...Take in the lush grounds covering over 5 acres and overflowing with plumeria, hibiscus, ginger, banana, palm trees and other tropical plants. Walk out the front door to catch a glimpse of the ocean or stroll across the street to see curious sea turtles or playful whales (during season) or a beautiful sunset. Shops and eats are just 1/2 mile South. Farmers Markets, local crafts nearby. Take a quick drive 2 miles south to Kalama Beach Park or Charley Young, Kamaole I II or III, or 7 miles down to our favorite Makena Beach, or any of the 33 miles of amazing beaches nearby. If you're not in the mood to drive, there is a bus stop just across the street on S Kihei Road. Or shoot up north to take the infamous ROAD TO HANA, or head up to the spiritual IAO VALLEY PARK, upcountry to the vineyard, or go west to explore Kanapalli...it's all a snap coming from Kihei!

We gladly offer TOMMY BAHAMA beach chairs and umbrella, a cooler, skim board, boogie board, etc for your use during your stay.

Relax in the outdoor hot tub poolside after a perfect day of beach activities, hiking, exploring and unwinding. Then rest peacefully in the comfy Simmons Beautyrest pillowtop motion control bed and wake to another perfect day in paradise!

The open floor plan of the kitchen and living room allows for the inside of our home to blend with the outside and makes it easy to share the company of friends or family. Our home is keiki (child) friendly (since we have two now) and we have a high chair, pack-n-play, greco stroller with shade, jumperoo, toys, books, and booster seat all available upon request. Our home, filled with love and great energy is also perfect for a couple (newlyweds, retired, or other). The stone shower will wash away your worries and the daily trade winds will whiz away your stress. If you're in the mood to cook, we have a full kitchen with all the comforts of home, as well as BBQ grills at the Cabana - which can also be reserved for larger group activities (easily seats 30) and includes a small library of books, table tennis, picnic tables, over head lights and fans. World famous restaurants like Cafe O'Lei, Da Kitchen, Monkeypod, Amasia, Gannon's, Mulligan's on the Blue, Jawz Tacos, Five Palms and tons more restaurants are also nearby, and Mama's Fish House is 20 min away, a foodie's paradise!

Our small resort community consists of 54 units, mostly owner-occupied, scattered throughout the lush 5+ acre property. Each building is only 2 stories, making you feel the ohana, 'family' atmosphere and Aloha spirit.

We are concerned for the environment and use only green cleaning products, soaps, detergent, etc. in our home. We've installed energy efficient appliances, provide filtered drinking water from the fridge, as well as cloth bags for shopping and ask that you kindly recycle. It's the perfect place for our family to escape stress and re-charge our spirits and we hope our home will do the same for you!

Although we moved nearby, Koa Resort will always have a special place in our heart as it was our first home and we still love to stay here for a weekend getaway and for our children to play on the grounds and in the pool. We look forward to having you stay in our Hawaiian Hale!

PLEASE NOTE: YOU HAVE THE OPTION OF USING A REUFNDABLE $300 SECURITY DEPOSIT INSTEAD OF $49 nonrefundable VRBO insurance. Please email me if you would like a quote to include a security deposit INSTEAD of the insurance. My 'minimum stay' is FLEXIBLE, so if you only need a couple nights I may be able to accommodate you, depending on availability.

With warm Aloha,
Deb and Family

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: I have family living in Hawaii and have been in love with the islands and the people since my first visit in 2002. In Hawaii, we have celebrated many happy times: Our wedding and honeymoon, my 30th birthday, Kai's Baby Blessing, among countless other adventures before finally moving here full time. Our dream of having a place to truly call home in Maui has come true and we'd love to share our home with you. With the birth of our second son, we moved to a home a few minutes away. We put a lot of love into our special Koa Resort hale and still love to take a 'vacation' here on some weekends. It is our quiet, peaceful escape from life's stress and troubles and hope you experience the same. Aloha e Komo Mai a Hale o Kai Ohana... Warm greetings and welcome to Kai's Family Home!

                  Why the Owner Chose Koa Resort:
                  We love our condo community because it's family friendly, it blends in with the land, mostly owner-occupied, the people that live here are loving and friendly and we immediately felt at home when we pulled into the parking lot. The swimming pool is super big, sparkling blue and tons of fun for all ages. We've been all over Maui and cannot find another place like Koa with our large condos and lanais and such large, well-maintained grounds. Koa Resort is so unique and it's a joy to spend time here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The bed is amazing. We spent a lot of money on it because we want to be well rested so that we can drink in every once of beauty that Maui has to offer. If your partner moves, you don't feel it. It's firm yet really soft. The position of our unit allows for the trade winds to blow from the lanai through our home, to the front door, quite strong at times, which we find extremely refreshing. I love dinning on our lanai and looking out on the lawn with all the flowers and colors. It's so relaxing!
