Koa Resort condo description

Remodel will be finalized by May 15th, 2012! Every single furnishing is brand new as of May 1st 2012. We designed this unit to be clean and modern, but still have a vibe of the islands.

We purchased and set up this 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo primarily so that our two daughters could grow up and have Maui be a big part of their lives.

Our program is that we load up our girls, ages 8 months and 5 in the morning at our home in the Columbia Gorge, fly out of Portland International and arrive in Kahului in early afternoon. We then rent a car, load up the suitcases and head to Kihei.

My wife and I typically bring along a sibling and/or friend and their family because the condo can easily accomodate 2 families. Once we arrive at Koa Resort, we simply enter a door code for the condo and we're in. Then it's a mad dash to dig out swimsuits and either head to the beach across the street or the gigantic pool on the grounds.

My wife and I typically take the loft master bedroom. It has its own bathroom and a king size bed with a tempurpedic foam mattress.

My sister and her husband set up camp in the downstairs bedroom that has a queen size bed. The palms right outside its window make for a cool effect, especially as the trade winds rustle their leaves.

The kids all quickly begin squabbling over who gets which bunk. All 4 bunks have memory foam mattresses and all beds in the house have mattress and pillow protectors that get cleaned between every use along with every scrap of bedding. Suitcases get unpacked haphazardly and long pants and shoes get replaced with swimsuits and bare feet.

My twenty something year old sister gets the couch in the living room.

The fast movers in the crew (kids) round up the easiest pushover adult they can find and immediately b-line it to the pool. Barring the Grand Wailea, the pool is probably one of the coolest kid pools in all of Maui. From the bridge to the hot tub is shallow enough for 2-5 year olds to wade in. This makes things WAY more relaxing for the adult(s) supervising. Behind the pool is shuffleboard, and showers disguised as bamboo are incorporated into the landscaping.

After about a half an hour the adults get unpacked and make a game plan for gearing up the condo for the trip. Fortunately, there is a ton of shopping close to the condo. We throw soft racks on top of the rental car, load up some surfboards and then round up the kids. We usually don't bother drying them off from the pool and throw them in the car and head toward Kalama beach.

The wind swell makes perfect little waves for kids or learning how to surf here. A couple of adults now run to Safeway for supplies, while the rest of us kick it on the beach and take turns pushing the kids into waves. After about an hour or two when the shopping is done we all head back to the condo.

We now unpack groceries, people take showers, and we plan dinner. Even though the kitchen is freshly remodeled, we typically barbecue outside in one of the common areas. The trade winds and tropical landscaping make it hard not to. There is also ping pong and tennis right next to the gas grills that the kids mess around with while we cook.

Usually the men get stuck grilling with some of the kids, while the moms mix up Pina Coladas back at the condo. They are kicking it on the huge lanai while the little kids watch a quick video on the new flat 52' LED flat screen TV w/PlayStation 3.

During dinners we usually plan the following day. There are copies of Maui guidebooks in the condo to help you do the same and you'll quickly learn there is always something for everyone in Maui.

Our familie's focus is being active and the ocean, but even after living in Maui and countless follow on trips, we always find something new. Know that kiteboarding, windsurfing, surfing, stand up paddling, whale watching, snorkeling, sunbathing, shopping, restaurants, and bars are all within a couple of miles of the condo.

We can't wait to go back and if you stay at Unit 3N hope you feel the same.

Aloha,

Gabe, Esina, Oceana, & Indie

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: I am a former airline pilot that now works with unmanned aircraft and my wife is an executive. We have 2 amazing daughters, ages 2 months and 6 that Maui has already made a big impact upon. Our last trip was especially memorable in that the five year old made some big strides in surfing and became confident enough with her mask and fins to look at fish and turtles at turtle town without assistance from Mom and Dad. The baby made big strides in not only eating sand but also collecting it in all of the crevices of her Michelin man physique.

                  Why the Owner Chose Koa Resort:
                  Location combined with the extra room that a 3 bedroom unit provides were the main factors. Koa Resort only has 52 units on 5+ acres. The pool and proximity to beach, restaurants, and shopping sealed the deal.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  This location is central to everything on Maui. We can cross the street to go kiteboarding or stand up paddle, walk to restaurants/coffee shops, or drive to either Lahaina, Kahului, or even the North Shore easily.
