                            WE HAVE FOUND THE PERFECT PLACE FOR US. FROM THE BEGINNING, WE FELT AT HOME. THE APARTMENT IS JUST AS BEAUTIFUL AS DESCRIBED AND AS SHOWN IN THE PICTURES. IT IS CLEAN AND WELL MAINTAINED. THE OCEAN-VIEW FROM THE LIVING ROOM AND THE LANAI IS AMAZING. WE WOULD RECOMMEND THIS LOCATION TO ALL OF OUR FRIENDS. WE LOVE THIS PLACE AND WE COME BACK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. MANY THANKS TO DEBBIE AND LARRY. THEY ALWAYS WERE VERY HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY. NICOLE & PASCAL

                            We spent a month in this rental and it was everything we had hoped for. Kihei is a great base to explore the entire island, as well as an interesting town on its own. My mouth fell open when we entered the condo and I saw the wall of windows looking out onto the lawn/park and ocean. The condo was clean and the listing photos were accurate. We used the lanai every morning for drinking our coffee and tea (I purchased a small electric kettle for tea and left it for the next renters) and reading or just enjoying the view. Our friends stayed on the futon for 3 nights and reported that it was comfortable. The a/c was out during our stay but it was an issue only if you were in the condo in the middle of the afternoon or on particularly hot nights. For the most part, the breeze through the apartment and the floor fans were enough to keep you perfectly cool. The owners went above and beyond trying to think of everything that would make your stay perfect. We used the lawn chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, beach towels and tote bags every day. The pool was a wonderful place to read, nap and cool off. I will say that this particular complex is not what I would call "kid friendly". The walls are quite thin and even jumping into the pool is banned. We were a group of older adults so it did not matter to us. Kimo, the on-site maintenance guy, was extremely helpful and friendly and made us feel welcome. We participated in the free yoga class on the lawn in front of the condo every Wednesday and Saturday; rented stand-up paddle boards and kayaks from the Maui Sunset next door; and wandered out to the water to watch the sunset each night. Although the ocean in front of the condo is not really a swimming beach, we used a guide book (Maui Revealed) to visit a different beach each day and most were within 5-10 minutes drive. We often stopped at little cafes and picked up lunch to take to the beach with us. We rented a car through Kihei Rent a Car and payed almost half of what the national companies were asking. We drove the Road to Hana, did sunrise and sunset on Haleakala, drove the Kahakuloa road around the west end, saw three wonderful dinner shows with local artists, enjoyed the "4th Friday" activities, and had many other experiences during our month there. We loved this condo and Maui and have recommended it to all of our friends. We hope to be back ourselves someday soon!

                            We had the sincere pleasure at staying at Debbie & Larry's fabulous condo in May! What a great experience! Everything you could want or need was readily available for our comfort. We stopped at Costco on our way to the condo from the airport to pick-up food and libations for the week. The condo was well-stocked with all the comforts of home - even spices in the kitchen! The beds were very comfortable and dressed with very nice linens. The place is immaculate and very well maintained. We had a designated parking spot that was close to the stairs. Great location and close to everything! The view from the lanai faces the ocean and the sunsets take your breath away! Can't wait to go back!!! Thank you so much for your kindness and sincere hospitality!

                            excellent stay in Kihei - well located - ocean front property. the unit was clean and spacious - we were able to open all the windows on the view side of the condo for a warm breeze off the ocean - newly remodeled space was as advertised. having a full size washer / dryer in the unit was a great plus. also the assigned parking space for this unit is very close - which is great when hauling luggage or dive gear from the unit to the car. we will be back again soon. Cheers

                            My family of 4 spent 9 amazing days at Larry & Debbie's condo. From start to finish we had a great time. The condo provided everything we could possibly need for comfort, convenience and fun. We saved a lot of money by preparing some of our own meals. It was aparent the owners put a lot of thought into stocking not only the kitchen but the entire condo with all the comforts of home and then some. The view of the ocean and sunsets is something I'll never forget. Walking along the beach at sunrise with a cup of coffee is one of my all time favorite things to do and this beach is perfect for that. And as they say the most important thing is location, location, location... this condo has that as well. A short walk or quick drive and you're in town to pick up groceries or a bottle of wine, have dinner out or shop for souveniers to take home. Drive either north or south (just up the street) and there are incredible beaches, parks and local farmers markets along the way (Turtle Town included). This place is an A+ and I can't wait to go back.

                            Just wanted to take a moment to say Thank You for letting us stay at your awesome Condo. It was the perfect place for us to get-a-way. Your place is so comfy and cozy and I really appreciated that it is so centrally located. When I go on vacation, I don't want to spend half my time trying to get somewhere (like the beach or the stores, etc). I loved that about your place. Also, I really enjoy being able to say that I stayed in a Condo that was owned by one of the Doobie Brothers! Thats Rock and Roll Royalty! And I heard the stories of other Big time musicans hanging out there,... what a cool place. That added to our experience and I would definately come back. Thank you so much for renting it out.

                            This centeraly located waterfront condo was roomier than we expected, and had everything we could have wanted. Free wifi was available but only in the back half of the unit, but I could always work from the pool where the signal was strongest.

                            We stayed at this beautiful Kihei condo for 10 days in March. It was a sweet property located right on Waipuilani Park & the Beach in Kihei. It was well appointed with everything we needed for our end of winter vacation. We found a great breakfast joint in the Kihei Caffe just down the road. We visited Ulupalakua & the Tedeschi Winery, also the Maui Ocean Center as well as exploring what other activities the island had to offer. We liked it so much that we spent a day going to open houses to see what was available in the Kihei Real Estate market. We did not find anything that measures up to this property but we are still looking. Until we find something that measures up we will continue to book vacations at this property.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, romantic getaway, sightseeing.

                            Owner response: Thank you to another of our delightful (and delighted) guests! We're thankful and proud that our guests view appreciate the convenience, cleanliness, relaxing nature and views our property has to offer. We look forward to their next stay.

                            We just got home from a 10-day trip to Maui and this condo fit our needs perfectly! We come to Maui for our family vacation every year and this condo was centrally located, which was very nice. We had 3 single adults and 1 child, and this unit gave everyone plenty of space. It was great having the washer/dryer in the unit, as well as televisions in every room. There are plenty of beach towels, a cooler and boogie boards to use as well. No need to bring beach towels from home! The kitchen is also fully stocked with the necessities. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets from the balcony as well as from the lawn area below. It's a very-short walk from the condo to the ocean/beach, and the beach is very long, which makes a great morning or evening walk. There are a lot of locals that live in this complex and they are very friendly and extremely respectful of the 10pm to 8am quiet hours. We never got a chance to use the pool or the BBQ's but the area is kept very clean and the BBQ looks like new. The only disadvantage I can see is that the unit is on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator, so this could be tough for parents with little children or anyone with disabilities. I would HIGHLY recommend this unit and would definitely stay here again!

                            Recommended for: Adventure seekers, romantic getaway, girls getaway, families with young children, families with teenagers.

                            Owner response: We are glad that so many guests have found the same qualities in our vacation condo as we have found. Thank you!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: In 2004, my Daughter had the opportunity to pick a Dream come true from Make-A-Wish and she picked going to Maui. On that trip we stop at Cheese Burger in Paradise to have dinner. While we were there we met a lady, Gail Swanson, who was singing and playing her guitar for the place. We have always kept in touch with her and my daughter and have became a very good friends. Besides being a very good singer and song writer, Gail became a Realtor on Maui. In 2011 I asked to her to help us find a 'home away from home' to share with friends and family and maybe spend half the year there. Gail and I spent the day together visiting places at near the water, but none of them impressed me enough to buy. Then, Gail told me about some good friends of hers that wanted to sell but the condo was not on the market. Gail arranged a visit... As soon as I walked in, I fell in love with the condo and the view.

                          Why the Owner Chose Waipuilani:
                          Since first visiting Maui in 2004, we've returned 3-5 times or more each year. We love Maui! Whether relaxing at the beach, visiting friends, or shopping, Maui is our vacation spot and Kihei the center. For us, Maui has the right combination of attributes that have us coming back for more - romance, quietness, small town, urban, country, relaxing, and nearby activities. We've found the local residents to be very friendly and giving. This particular unit is as close to the beach as most other condos, but you'll cross only Waipuilani park, not a street. Waipuilani park is a big plus - a well-maintained county park that is little-known, but has public tennis courts, a volley ball court, and huge lawn with well-spaced mature palm trees.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Our frequent visits to Maui have allowed us to make many local friends of all professions and walks of life. The great diversity keeps this vacation spot enjoyable.
