                        We appreciated the location of the condo, it was a very quick walk to the beach. The condo unit was very clean, nicely decorated, fully stocked and well maintained. We enjoyed having the beach equipment for use. Lots of positives! One drawback for us was a "harder" than desired mattress in the master bedroom that we felt was uncomfortable. The second bedroom mattress was an improvement. A bigger drawback, however, was a nearby tenant (or renter?) that frequently smoked. Unfortunately, we often had to close the windows/patio door due to the strong, unpleasant odor drifting in. That same foul odor lingered in the stairwell. With that said, we were not in the condo much during our stay, but when we were, not being able to open the windows/door for the breeze/ventilation in the evening made for a stuffy unit. The A/C in the living room was helpful, but the bedrooms remained a little to warm/stuffy for our Washington blood. Third, we did not receive rental information, access code, etc. until less than a week prior to our vacation. One week prior to departure with no access info or contact, it took two emails and a phone message before we received the information. In the end, it all worked out without a hitch, but the timing was starting to make us nervous. Our other rental on Maui had the information for us weeks ahead of time and was very good about keeping in touch. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and the negatives of the unit did not dampen the enthusiasm of our vacation. However, the smoking issue is a deal-breaker, and because of this, we would not return. It is also possible that the offender was a visitor and others would not have the same experience. We spent more time in a different area of Maui after staying in this unit, and because we did not face similar drawbacks there, we found it much more enjoyable. I hate leaving a less than ideal review, but this was our experience. The bigger drawback for us (strong smoking odor from neighbor) is not something that can be controlled by the owner, but did have an impact on the quality of our visit.

                        Owner response: Aloha & thank you for your feedback and review. I am sorry about the negative experience with the smoking nearby. Our property actually prohibits smoking on the lanais, walkways, or within 20' of the buildings (per Hawaii state law) but from time to time there are people who disregard the rules, to the discomfort and detriment of neighboring condos. I spoke with the resident manager of the property and she did received complaints about smoking from a couple of other residents in that part of the building around the same time as your visit. It turned out to be a guest visiting an owner that was smoking on their lanai. As for the smoke smell in the stairwell that you mentioned, it is due to one specific unit in the basement where the tenants smoke inside (sadly not prohibited by our property rules) and the smoke smell does get into the stairwell. I typically use the other stairwell since our condo is in the middle between the two. I am sorry also for the concern caused by our sending the directions and lockbox info so close to your arrival time. We routinely change the door code for security sake, and thus don't have the new code available weeks in advance. Also, from time to time we get info about property wide maintenance such as pest control or inspections, and want to make sure to get that info to our guests should it fall during their stay, so we send our arrival info closer to guests' check-in date so everything is up to date and current. I am sorry that it caused you undue stress, however. I also apologize for the discomfort with the one bed mattress. Knowing people have different preferences we tried to get one a little firmer and one a little softer so that there would be a choice should people's preferences lay one way or the other. I'm glad that otherwise you found the condo clean and comfortable for your stay, and the location to be situated close to everything. I'm pleased that you did have a positive experience at the other place you stayed while on island, and hope overall your visit to Maui was pleasant and filled with great memories.

                        It was a great place for our weekend getaway to Maui. We had a group of 6 and it slept all of us just fine. The unit was clean and had all the accessories we needed. The pool and hot tub were open to 10pm, although the hot tub was either way too hot or way too cold. Would definitely come back and stay here again!

                        Owner response: Thanks for your review! I am so glad you enjoyed your weekend visit to Maui, and that you all were comfortable during your stay in our condo. I am sorry the hot tub temperature was inconsistent. I will let the resident manager know, as that is maintained by the property and beyond my ability to assist with. I know from time to time in the mornings the hot tub is cold because the routinely drain it to clean, and the refilled water takes a couple of hours to get up to temperature. :) Thanks for choosing our condo for your visit!

They also had some beach gear, such as body boards, snorkeling equipment, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc., so we did not have to buy anything to enjoy the beach fully. Everything you might want for a great stay in Maui! Plus, the beach is maybe 5 minutes walk." **review from guest who booked via Airbnb

On my day of checkout, my flight was a red eye flight and I had wanted to shower prior to departure. She told me I could have a late check out. The unit is very nice very clean. Walk down the drive way and you're on the beach. Alot of stores and restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay again. The price was excellent too! Thanks Kristen!" ** review from guest who booked via Arbnb

Perfect location, a very short walk to the beach (~5 min.) where some of the best snorkeling on Maui is, lots of room and stocked with everything you could need from beach gear to kitchen supplies. Super comfy beds too. Would definitively stay at Kristen's again! We had a great time :D" **review from guest who booked via Airbnb

                        "I highly recommend Kristen's place - our group of four really enjoyed our stay. We took advantage of the location by walking across the street to Kam III (beach) nearly every day. Lots of great restaurants were within walking distance or a short drive. Parking was right in front of the condo and a spot was reserved for us. The beach items, towels, kitchen supplies, and technology (TV, Wifi, and iPod dock) made it feel like home. There is a pull-out sofa so really there are three beds. Two showers made cleaning up after the beach much faster. Kristen also has made a helpful book with maps, phone numbers and house rules that was handy." **review from our guest who booked via Airbnb

Kristen was easy to reach, responsive and had a fully stocked condo with spices, dishes, condiments, blender, beach chairs, towels, instructions, etc. Condo complex had great bbqs with natural gas (didn't have to bring your own charcoal) and ample parking too. The Lonely Planet Maui book and wifi were great benefit planning our daily adventures. She even had restaurant menus for nearby takeout." **from a guest who booked via Airbnb

The place had everything we could have asked for (and more) - beach chairs and umbrella, snorkel gear, all kinds of kitchen things. Super comfortable beds, good location, easy 5 minute walk to the beach. We were there for my 30th birthday and a girlfriend had worked with Kristen to create a beautiful Hawaii surprise package on our arrival. She really went above and beyond. If we go back to Maui, I would love to stay here again!" review from a guest who booked via Airbnb

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We purchased our condo after falling in love the property and location during a visit to Maui. While our busy schedules with our children and work keep us on the go, we look forward to our visits back to the island, where we always feel At Home in Maui. Should anything come up that you need assistance with our property manager will be there to help you right away. Unlike some agents with multiple rentals, we have selected an experienced manager couple, Louise & Buck, who takes care just one rental, your perfect stay while in paradise.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kihei Shores:
                      The convenience of so many amenities, great beaches, and shopping withing walking distance of the condo was a big influence on our deciding to purchase. The property location being set off the main road away from noise but still close to everything was another plus. Our year round neighbors at the property as well as the staff and management make our place more than ever our island home, rather than just another rental in a vacation rental resort.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The views from front and back of the condo we never grow tired of. While is isn't ocean front, we still enjoy watching sunsets or looking for whales to spout or breach from the lanai, and looking for the rare glimpse of snow on the summit of Haleakala in the 'winter' while enjoying 80 degree sunshine at the condo. The best sunsets, however, are just a few steps away at Kamaole III, where this photo was taken. Everyday is a new sunset, never the same as the one before. Our kids enjoy the large open lawn of the park at Kamaole III for kite flying, swinging, endless games of tag, volleyball, soccer, and more.
