"We have stayed in this unit for seven years now. The owners are super nice & easy to work with. They keep the unit well stocked & maintained. They take pride in their little piece of paradise & it shows. This time we noticed they had gotten a new water heater (not sure why as the other one worked great last year, but they keep this place up), nice shiny new air conditioner that kicks butt...plus there is an "Eco" mode which works great & uses less energy, new black out type curtains. They try & have the essentials there for you. Little things like laundry detergent, zip locks, dish detergent, coffee filters...surprisingly these little touches really add up in Maui. Have you ever shopped at any of the local grocery stores, expensive. The bed is amazing! The linens (sheets & towels) are great. Not cheap hotel type stuff. I think it was last year they got a new sofa, it is a pull out bed & comfortable too. You can tell that they use their unit as well & want to be comfortable when they are there as well. Another guest wrote that the pictures do not do this place justice...Ditto that! They are always updating & maintaining & I am guessing that they don't always take updated pictures to show off what they have done. There is a "toy" basket with plenty of masks & snorkel gear (only a few fins, but you can rent those cheap) boogie boards, taller chairs, low chairs, mats, etc...The pool / hot tub / BBQ area is a hidden gem & best kept secret. We were there nine days this time & used the hot tub every evening, there was never anyone else there with us! The owners have great suggestions for different adventures just ask them. We have never gone in May, but they had such a great deal for our stay we couldn't pass it up. Yes, this is street side unit, yes you hear the road noise during the day, but about 5:30pm the road noise really dies down & trade winds pick up. It is perfect to set out on the lanai & eat dinner & drink a fruity drink. This unit actually has a very nice view of the ocean. No it isn't what it used to be, but nothing to complain about. Awesome sunsets! When we first started renting this unit I asked the owners why Kihei Bay Surf & they both said location. They hit it spot on, this location is perfect. Basically everything is about 20mins away...No not Hana, but that's Hana. Thank you for sharing your place with us. Ready to head back next year! Aloha"
