"This condo was absolutely perfect for our week long stay in Maui! We were so happy to find it full equipped with all of our beach needs, water bottles, beach towels, chairs, & mats, a cooler, picnic supplies, snorkels, boogie boards, sun screen, bug spray and more! We didn't do much cooking, but the kitchen is indeed fully packed with anything and everything culinary (we did, however, make use of the FANTASTIC blender and the 10 ice trays quite frequently. I now have blender envy). The deck also became an important part of our stay. After a long day hiking in Hana or an eventful afternoon snorkeling and sunbathing at Maluaka Beach it was nice to have a peaceful and private place outside to enjoy an ice cold rum & POG.
The condo itself is very clean, cute, comfortable, and in great shape--it was perfect for our romantic getaway, but it could easily accommodate four. The location is also ideal; Kihei is a great town, packed with restaurants, bars, beaches, shops, and activities that were within walking distance or a short drive away from the KKN complex.
KKN is literally across the street from the Kamaole beaches and close to many others. As far as beaches, for snorkeling and/or sunbathing, we recommend Maluaka (our favorite), Makena Beach (Big Beach for snorkeling/swimming, Little Beach for tanning), Ahihi Nature Preserve, Wailea Beach, and Kamaole Beach III (walk along the Kihei Coastal Trail, past the boat ramp, to the rocks at the edge of the grass of Maui Surfside for great morning turtle watching!!!)
For drinks and food, we recommend checking out Maui Brewing Company's Kihei location, Da Kitchen, Eskimo Candy, Memphis Belle Coffee House, Sansei Sushi, South Shore Tiki Lounge, Monkeypod, Humuhumunukunukuapua’a (for drinks), and last, but not least, the Cinnamon Roll Place.
We also went scuba diving in Kihei with the company Scuba Luv and went on a snorkeling booze cruise to Molokini and Turtle Town that left from Kihei. Overall, the condo was perfect for our vacation "needs" and we will definitely be coming back!"
