  • Perfect

    "This will truly be your home away from home. The condo and surrounding areas are immaculate and absolutely beautiful. Rainbows, sunsets, flowers, birds, and an overwhelming sense of serenity abound. This unit is convenient - the BBQ and pool are mere steps away. You will meet many lovely people here! Every little detail has been included at the condo - even a waffle maker and rice cooker if you so desire.... a most comfortable bed and huge walk-in shower are great after a wonderful day exploring the island and beaches. Come prepared to have one of the best vacations ever thanks to your exceptional hosts, Buzz & Alex!"

  • Great stay in Maui!

    "After a long trip of about 15 hours, we arrived in Maui from Boston! We could not be more pleased with the location, the view, and the apartment. There was a reserved space for our rental car to pull right into (it seems pretty difficult to get around the island without one), and check-in at the desk took only a minute or two. We had everything we needed in the apartment- including beach towels/chairs, a cooler, plenty of kitchen supplies for baking, cooking (pots, pans, utensils, cups, blender, etc), or grilling. We used the kitchen a lot to save on going out to eat. I would recommend this for someone looking for a homey, quiet place to stay. They had quiet hours from about 10pm - 8am, which was nice because we were usually up early to go to the beach or do various activities and never heard much noise from the neighbors. The bed was very comfortable, and the tv comes with a DVD player, so we used that to watch a movie that we rented from the grocery store right down the street. There are nice beaches nearby in Wailea, and we drove about 40 minutes to the beaches of Kaanapali and went on a whale watch. It is also not a far drive from the airport or the Haleakala crater. I liked it because it was in the middle of everything with shops and restaurants right nearby, but it itself is in a quiet and safe location. We took morning walks on the beach (just cross a small grass area to get there!) with our coffee, and the view of the ocean and mountains from the lanai are fantastic. If we travel to Maui again, I would absolutely stay here and recommend it to others. I know I was wary of online booking, but everything worked out perfectly. Marilyn was a great help with emailing and even called me before paying to ensure there was a real person on the other end! Mahalo, Marilyn for a great stay! Tracey and Alex, Boston, MA"

    "The unit was clean and very comfortable, we have booked this condo several times and have never had a problem. The grounds are very nice and in a nice location to everything. The weather was absolutely beautiful the whole 3 weeks. I would recommend this condo to anyone. The owner is very pleasant and very easy to work with. We had no problems with anything during our stay."

  • Holiday to Remember in a Beautiful Condo

    "We were very pleased we had chosen to stay at Gem of Maui! As you enter, the building and grounds were very well maintained and the pool and hot tub were clean and a great place to relax and chat with other tenants. BBQ are was great too and there is a convenient designated parking spot. The condo itself was clean, tastefully decorated and furnished with everything we could think of (including a device for peeling pineapples and birthday candles!). Both beds were very comfortable and the lanai was large and had an exceptional view. Everything was in good working order and they were installing brand new washing machines on each floor during our stay. We appreciated the thoughtful touches such as plenty of toilet paper, plush towels supplied and oils and S&P in the kitchen. We wanted for nothing during our stay. Having never been to Kihei I was a little worried about how our location would be, but it was convenient, with a bus stop right outside and less than 5 minute walk to restaurants and a supermarket. Although you're very close to the ocean, the beachfront is not big enough/too rocky for relaxing. There is a small sandy beach area 2 minutes' walk away but the main beaches are a bus ride/drive away. All in all, we were very pleased with the Gem of Maui and would recommend it!"
