We were visiting Maui for the first time and quite weary of staying in any condo as we have never done that and there were no reviews for this specific unit.We decided to look as we have kids now and ABSOLUTELY wanted to have a beach view. We were not disappointed at all. This was a GREAT place to stay.
Outside: Easily found. Ample parking. Right across is a convenience store and a farmers market that has most day to day items. Right next door is Maui canoe club which has canoeing for $30 per person (goes to charity). Must do. It looked like any normal apartment complex with a single elevator. Walking on the fifth floor from the elevator to the unit you get a great view of the mountains and Kehei town. Although at first look it may feel like being on a motel walkway it is quickly quelled by the stone side wall and the sounds of the ocean waves and the breeze! The door opens with a number code which is helpful as I have tendency to lose keys :-)
Once you open the door you immediately realize that you did ok with booking this condo and once you see the view you are elated! You enter in to the kitchen which is very well equipped with all the noted amenities above. They also have a blender and at our mention Barabara immediately arranged for a rice cooker too. There are plates, cups, utensils everything you need in the kitchen
The living room has plenty of space and is exactly as shown in the pictures. Well equipped with cable TV (it was playoff weekend with championship games...) internet etc... Then comes the real delight the balcony and the GREAT view. The pictures above do not do any justice but I understand it is difficult to capture short of posting a video. You hear the waves crashing and then look below -- the beach is RIGHT in front of you- literally 3 feet away!!! We had taken many a long walks on several beaches in Maui and can guarantee you that there is no other condo that is closer to the beach than this. From the lanai you can also see the ocean and occasionally whales and turtles. The view of the mountains with windmills and the clouds passing by is really great.
The bedroom and bathrooms were also as the pictures show. There are ample clocks with alarms along with one iphone charging station. Finally they have beach chairs, towels and a common space with pool and beachbeds.
All in all you cannot go wrong taking this condo with its perfect location. I know where I an going to stay if I visit again! website places limits detailed review
