Recent Kauhale Makai - Village by the Sea reviews

  • Place worth coming back to

    "It is a very nice condo to stay. Easy to and from and just a mile from all the good eating places. As advertised 200 yards from the beach. Nice beach to walk and close to all the place you would like to eat at. The pool and hot tub were very nice and all the people we meet at the condos were also nice. Staff was very helpful as they did direct us to a medical facilities since my wife came down with a bad sinus infection. It is a slower pace then other parts of the island as Kihei is missing some of the monster hotels. Look for the local food establishments you will not go wrong. The Catholic church a mile away had a very nice for Saturday service."

  • Was perfect!

    "Couldn't have been better! The photos were just as listed, description matched as well. Communication with owner was quick and easy as well. It was a fantastic stay. The pool/spa in the courtyard was never busy, plenty of BBQs to use which were in immaculate condition, mine at home is never that spotless! The grounds were impeccable and the parking is right out front. The actual suite was great, nice new full kitchen with absolutely everything you could need, including a cooler to use for day trips, which we did use all the days we were there. The king bed is so comfortable to sleep on. No back issues in the am. Suite also had 2 additional Murphy style beds which we never used, but would be perfect for a family. After having a horrendous experience on the big island just a few days before, where the property we rented was a disaster and I am currently attempting to get my money back; I admit I was slightly hesitant when we flew into Maui. As soon as we pulled into this complex my apprehension went away. It's a beautiful complex, and the suite was spot on. Wifi in the suite was also great. I never used the tv but there are two, on in the living room and another in the bedroom. Central air conditioning was also well appreciated on those super hot Kihei days. Thank you very much, we had a great time in Maui."

  • Nice spot to hang your hat

    "Wonderful view, nice place. I've stayed in this complex before but wanted a two bedroom for this trip. The unit is on the end of the complex facing the ocean, very nice views from both lanais on this second floor condo. The kitchen and bathrooms aren't spiffy and new, but they are clean and have everything you need. The living room has a beautiful new floor and comfy furniture. I had some trouble connecting with the internet, I didn't think to look in the desk drawers, but figured it out. Russ, the owner was helpful and responsive. He finally got ahold of me to check in, even though he was traveling on his own vacation. He was also willing to work with me on extending our stay if necessary due to the hurricanes headed towards the islands. There were beach chairs, cooler, and other beach things in the hall closet to use. This is one of the perks I love when staying a condos, aside from the kitchens and larger living spaces. Complex has BBQs, pool and hot tub, none of which we used this trip, although others seemed to enjoy. Also has air conditioning in all rooms, a huge bonus when you need it. Many condos only have main room air. Bedrooms were nice, but honestly, can't say the same for the beds. My mom took the extra blankets and put them under her sheets, said it made it more comfortable. I was too stupid to do that and instead had uncomfortable nights sleep for seven nights. The plus side is it gets you out of bed and starting your day of adventure much earlier. Even getting some kind of mattress topper would be a very nice improvement. After our stay here we spent two nights in Hana in a small studio cottage, but even sleeping in same bed with my mom was more restful because the bed was more comfortable. Overall, I would gladly recommend this condo, especially if you like hard beds. It's in a great location, well priced, nice and clean, has responsive owners, wonderful view, all the kitchen things you need and several other little touches. Kehei is a nice place to stay, it's a great jump off spot for exploring the island by car. It has bus service right outside the door if needed. It's close to many great beaches for hanging out, swimming and snorkeling and minutes away from both large grocery stores and smaller venues."

  • Maui Paradise

    "Aloha, Marilyn As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Maui, and once again I really enjoyed your condo! Kauhale Makai is such a beautiful place, what with the landscaping, location on the wonderful Pacific Ocean, and all the amenities. #326 just makes it all the better. Coming off a 13 hour trip from Knoxville and walking into your place for the 6th time since 2005, tired and ready to rest, was like walking into my own place - everything was so familiar! I couldn't help but notice that your lanai is becoming more user friendly, what with the additional furniture. I LIKE IT! I spent plenty of time stting there in the late evenings, enjoying the critter sounds, listening to my iPod, watching things wind down in the pool, and looking at the sky. I even saw a really cool meteor one night. I did have the A/C running all day during my first few days while I was at the beach - it was very humid then - but I stopped that soon, after I discovered that leaving it off all day, then coming back and turning it back on when I returned, it de-humidified the air quite quickly. Thanks again for allowing me to enjoy your condo, Marilyn! You and your partners have a good thing going. Mike"
