Recent South Kihei (Kamaole I & II Beaches Area) reviews
Affordable, Great Location, Comfy Bed, Well Stocked!
"My husband and I left the kids behind for a 5-year anniversary trip and it was truly a great getaway!
We arrived at Kihei Akhai at about midnight in our arrival date. The late check-in process was quick and painless. The condo was perfectly located for the activities we would want to do during our stay: beach, pool, golf, scuba, tennis, etc. It was also close to restaurants and groceries. We would say the location was "excellent" and that is the most important thing to us.
The condo was by no means spotless, but it was clean enough. I knew what to expect based on the pictures provided in the ad and the pictures were accurate. I was, however thrown off by the following statement in the ad:
"It has been completely renovated in the last year. Almost everything in this beautiful unit is brand new." As a renovator and landlord myself, I feel that this is a deceiving statement. The only thing that we could see was "new"ish is the carpet in the living room and bedroom and maybe some furniture. Everything else was very very dated. Coming back to my comment re: cleanliness, I felt that it was as clean as it could have been considering the sheer age of the shower, counters, tile, appliances, etc.
The condo was well stocked with beach gear, which is something that we appreciated! Also, we were provided with plenty of towels and cooking utensils.
The air conditioning cooled the living room and kitchen very well and with the assistance of the fan in the bedroom we were also a good temperature when we slept. There is a window above the closets in the bedroom that leads out to the hallway and it is not a fixed pane of glass. There wasn't very much sound proofing from the hallway and when someone walked down the hallway talking it sounded like they were in our room! However, this seemed to be a common form of "window" throughout Maui.
Our flight did not leave until 11:30pm on our check out date so I requested a late checkout. I was denied which was a slight disappointment. It would have been nice to have a nap and shower in the early afternoon to make the most of our day. Just a suggestion for future renters: request your late checkout on your first day. Maybe they will be more accommodating?
Anyways, we had a fabulous time in Maui and enjoyed Kihei Akhai very much. We would stay in this property again and would suggest it to others. If you plan on spending a lot of time in your condo, perhaps pay the $200+/night for luxury. if not, this is perfect! Thanks!"

"We had a wonderful time at the Royal Mauian. The weather was unbelievable for 14 days not a drop of rain.
The ocean was warm and a beautiful golden sand beach. The condo is everything as promised and as shown in the photo review. There is nothing to bring other than your swimsuit and some casual clothing the condo has everything else you need for a fantastic holiday. We highly recommend this condo for the view and comfort.
We highly recommend it to our friends. Thank so much for your hospitality and a wonderful holiday.

"Enjoyed our stay here in this lovely clean and quiet condo. Fully equipped kitchen,comfortable king size bed and a great step-in shower.Nicole thought of every detail to make this condo feel like "home away from home". Perfect location; close to restaurants,
shops and beautiful beaches. Steps away from the 2 pools and great barbecues. Loved sitting on the lanai with our morning coffee, listening to the birds doing their best to entertain us. Because we like to keep in touch with family and friends,free wifi and free calling in Canada/U.S.A was a real bonus. We would come back here in a heart beat!!!"
