Kamaole One condo description
Searching for 'Paradise?' You've found it! A perfect Condo, ON a perfect beach, on the perfect island. Maui's sunniest corner enjoys more than 300 days of sun each year. Kamaole One (#8) is located on the secluded end of Charlie Young Beach, which the locals consider to be one of the finest on Maui. From the lanai you can view the islands of Lanai and Molokini. It's ideal for swimming. Snorkeling, and boogie-boarding. A four mile walk along the beach takes you to the luxury hotels of Wailea.
This is not your typical condominium complex. Kamaole One has only 12 units, and they are all right on the beach. Second floor units such as ours view the ocean through two stories of ceiling to floor, wall to wall glass. The view is equally spectacular from the living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and lanai. You not only see the ocean but you can hear it. It would be impossible to find a deluxe hotel room this close to the beach.
Our kitchen has all the amenities for gourmet cooking. We also have an electric grill on the lanai. We have a large flat screen TV in the living room. Wood floors in driftwood white are used throughout the unit including the kitchen and bathrooms. The loft master bedroom boasts a double sink vanity with hollywood lighting and corian countertops and shower, three way mirrors, ceiling fan, and the same sweeping views of the beach and ocean as seen from the lanai.
This is our home and we are looking for individuals who will appreciate the peace and beauty of our home and who will leave it exactly as they found it. A maximum of four adults may rent our unit- no children allowed. Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the Condo or lanai.

Could have been better

The location and condo where really nice. The beach was really great. However, the air conditioning did not work and even with all the windows and doors open 24/7 (which I wasn't really comfortable with) it was still 82 degrees inside. It was cooler outside than inside!!! It was very hard to sleep, especially with a sunburn! I contacted the owner the day after we arrived and b/c it was a Friday a repair company could not come until the next week. She said they would come on Tues but did not need access to the unit. We happened to be there and they did need into the unit. They were in and out for over 2 hours and still could not fix it. It was an inconvenience that the a/c did not work and also hanging around for 2 hours while workers were in and out of our bedroom. They wanted to come back the next day with more workers but it was our last full day and we didn't want to spend it inside while they were trying to fix it again. Other than this problem the unit was nice and right on the beach which was very nice. I would recommend this unit to a friend ONLY if the a/c was in working order. As it was WAY too hot inside and not comfortable.

Owner response: The air conditioning units at the Kamaole One condos are tested quarterly. This test took place two weeks prior to our guests arrival. It is always unfortunate when there is a mechanical malfunction especially on a Friday night with the weekend looming. Everything that could possible be done was done to make the repair and it is currently awaiting parts. Fortunately there is an amazing natural air conditioner called the trade winds in Hawaii. Most guests find the ocean breezes and the ceiling fans to be the method of choice for cooling so as to enjoy the sound of the ocean. We're very sorry for the inconvenience caused by the air conditioner not working, but hope that our guests enjoyed the beautiful ocean, the location and our condo.

What a beautiful property & unit! Small, quiet, intimate, but spacious and airy. A perfect location on one of my favorite beaches on Maui. This condo had everything we needed for a week of blissful ocean breezes and relaxation. The beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable. Nice towels in the 2 bathrooms as well. Kitchen utilities fully stocked, we wanted for nothing. Covered parking too, much appreciated on hot, sunny days. Every day we walked downstairs right onto the Kamaole One / Charley Young beach and enjoyed the surf & sun. This beach has sweet waves but also an easy incline for those with trouble getting in and out of the water. It's a great place to walk especially at dawn or dusk, peaceful, serene. On our laid back days we'd sit on the lanai, sip cocktails fresh from the blender and watch all the action. Swimmers, dogs, kids, surfers, paddle boarders, outriggers and everything Hawaii right in front of us. That included the whales playing just off shore (winter only). The unit has a convenient washer/dryer combo and central AC, but we liked opening up the windows to let the trade winds through. It's also close to shopping and some great restaurants. Free wifi worked great, flat screen TV in the living area, small electric BBQ grill on the lanai (George Foreman style), ceiling fans, two story views of the ocean, etc. Across the beautiful green ocean front lawn there's also a nice outdoor yet private shower for when you come up off the beach. Very picturesque all around. My only complaint, the drapes could have used a cleaning, but everything else was immaculate. Open those drapes to take in the spectacular sunsets while sipping a Mai Tai or Lava Flow. Perfect. The owner was very responsive via emails & phone. The listings photos don't do justice to the property, it's even better in person. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a memorable getaway.
