  • Family with Kids (Vancouver BC)

    "We have never used VRBO before and we were extremely pleased with this property. Jay and Judy were great to deal with. The property is exactly as described, an immaculate updated 2 bedroom condo with ample room for the 4 people. The interior was clean, with new appliances, an extremely well stocked pantry and an abundance of beach necessities. The property has a beautiful view of Kamaole II beach and Molokini can be seen clearly off in the distance. We spent many evenings socializing on the Lanai watching the sunset and looking out at the waves. The 2 pools and barbecues are kept very clean. Kihei Akahi is situated directly across from Kameole II and a short walk to Kameole III which are very kid friendly beaches with calm waves. No air conditioning, but no need as all the windows open up which allow the trade winds to blow through the condo cooling it off nicely.I would not hesitate at all in recommending this property to my friends and family."

  • WONDERFUL CONDO

    "My good friends recommended this condo and we were not disappointed. We stayed at the condo for 10 days. It was clean, nice floor plan, had many extras (chairs, coolers, ice packs) that are useful for day trips to the beach, steps away from the pool and bbq area. Very nice walk straight to the beach, 5-10mins depending on how long your legs are. The owners responded to my ignorant emails :) quickly and friendly. My wife to be and I are considering having our wedding in Maui and if we do we are definitely going to stay at this condo again. Highly recommended!"

  • A Little Piece of Paradise

    "Thanks Don & Jennifer for the use of your condo, it was 2 weeks of great relaxing & enjoying the island made possible by a very nicely appointed condo in a well located area of the island. The morning coffee on the lani, walking the beach, using the pool and barbeque facilities and happy hour(s) on the lani at the end of the day was a routine easily adapted too and quickly missed after we left. The staff & other tenants were all friendly and helpful with "those little things" that new arrivals aren't quite sure about. The nearby amenities made shopping & dining out as easy as a short walk away. The beach provided great access to watching whales breeching off shore, turtles in close and on occasion out of the water on the beach and some very spectacular sunsets. We were two couples staying there and the condo easily accomodated everything we wanted to do. Thanks again."

  • Amazing Maui Getaway

    "Like most people, i read the reviews on this property before booking, and what they all say is true! What you see in the pictures is very accurate. This rental cottage was amazing for our honeymoon. We felt right at home right away. We went and bought some groceries but everything else we needed was right there for us. It was so nice having a washer and dryer available for use because it helped us pack less. I was a little disappointed we didn't get a visit from the cat everyone else talked about, since we were missing our cats as well. The pool was great, and the bedroom stayed very cool. After a long day of activities, which are all very close by we loved being able to go back to our secluded place. Amazing view for stars at night as well. We would highly recommend this property in maui,and only hope we can come back some day!! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful property with us!! Stacie and Eric"
