About Patricia Stillwell

We bought our condo in 2003 as a second home for us while we wrapped up our lives in Carlsbad, California in anticipation of moving permanently to Kihei. The neighborhood offered everything we wanted--great beaches, proximity to good restaurants and stores. In 2004 we retired from the mainland careers, bought a home a few blocks away from the condo and moved to Kihei to recreate ourselves in paradise. We spent the first years remodeling our home, hiking and snorkeling everywhere, going to school, volunteering and getting to know our new island and the beautiful Hawaiian culture. We now have stress-free part time fun jobs at the Grand Wailea lu'au. Jefferson is an artist and is usually in his studio creating unique masterpieces of fun art. Patricia is an avid gardener and cook. We both stay physically active and enjoy all the spectacular outdoor activities that Maui has to offer. Maui is magical, healing and peaceful. We like to share that feeling with our guest.

Very nice, bright and homey!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived and everything was perfect, even had a welcome basket! The unit is an end unit so the additional windows in the living room and bedroom really make the unit bright. It also has great ventilation because of the additional windows and we never turned on the AC for the entire two weeks! The unit has everything you need and very comfortable, clean, and everything works. It is nice to park your car and walk straight into your unit. The location is awesome as a very uncrowded beach is directly across the road. There are 5 restaurants, shopping and even an ice cream parlor all within one block. Very safe, clean, quiet and super friendly guests. We loved it. Thank you Patricia. Aloha and enjoy!!!!

Great Maui VRBO, best condo and location yet.

  • 5 of 5

Just back from two wonderful weeks in Maui. Our third time at this Kihei development. This was the best unit we have rented yet. The description was totally accurate, very clean and recently updated. Lovely welcome basket on arrival and prompt help from owners when needed. This Kihei location is perfect for good restaurants, best safe swimming beaches and largest pool for those poor beach days. If you like to do some of your own cooking the kitchen comes well equipped, as does the apartment. Would recommend it to couples and small families as the best value on Maui. One bonus is the cross breeze as this is an end unit with good views and lovely breezes, so that you don't need the air conditioning.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review for us. It means a lot to us especially since you've stayed in several different units at Kihei Kai Nani and found our unit to be your favorite. We try hard to ensure our guests have a perfect spot to relax and feel at home. The ocean views, cooling breezes and ideal location all help! We truly appreciate how neat and clean you left our condo, too. We'll see you again on the next visit! Cheers, Patricia and Jefferson

Great Maui vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 11 wonderful days in Kihei in this lovely condo. The condo is very clean and has recently been renovated and is tastefully decorated with quality furnishings and artwork. The bedroom has a comfortable king sized bed and a huge closet. The condo stayed cool with the ocean breezes and the ceiling fans.

The condo is an end unit on the top floor so is very private and quiet. We loved sitting on the lanai for our morning coffee and our evening wine.

There is plenty of parking available at the front of the condo.

Patricia was great to work with and lives nearby and responded very quickly if we had any concerns. She booked our tickets for a luau which was very enjoyable.

The kitchen is well stocked and there was even a lovely basket of goodies and fresh flowers to welcome us!

We would love to stay here again and highly recommend this condo in Kihei.

Owner's Response: Aloha Shirley and Mike, The question we always ask ourselves is "If we were to rent this condo, what would make it even better?" Then we act on that to be sure every guest feels it's worthy of a 5 star rating. We thank you for taking the time to write the review for us and letting us know that we hit the mark. We hope you'll spread the word and come back soon. We enjoy having you! Have a great holiday season. Aloha, Patricia and Jefferson

Wonderful Kihei rental near the best beach in Maui

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this rental during our vacation in Kihei to celebrate our anniversary. It is a 5 minute walk to Kama'ole Beach, our favorite beach in Maui, and within walking distance to lots of restaurants. We really appreciated Patricia's personal touches which included a welcome phone call, a gift basket and beautiful flowers placed in every room. Patricia is very easy to communicate with and quick to respond to questions.The condo was spotless, extremely comfortable, and had everything you needed. The condo had high quality furnishings. You can tell that the owners really care about the condo. It has air conditioning but we never needed it because of the cool afternoon breezes. It was wonderful to wake up to birds in the morning. We enjoyed our mornings on the lanai with the distant ocean views. We will definitely return and highly recommend this unit!

Top choice!

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to Maui for many years and Kihei has become our favorite place. We’ve stayed in several different condos and this is one of our new favorites. Patricia and Jefferson are the nicest people and have made sure every detail is covered. The remodel is beautiful and the layout is spacious. The lanai gets some morning sun when it’s still cool and is in the shade the rest of the day which makes it nice to sit outside for meals. The kitchen and bathroom are well equipped and stocked with many items that saved us money, saran wrap, foil, baggies, spices, paper towels, generous starter items of toilet paper, soap, shampoo, conditioner, even a travel deodorant! It’s great to get you through the first few days and more generous than most. They even had a wonderful gift basket with chocolate macadamia clusters and fruit from their avocado and Meyer lemon tree. Plenty of beach equipment is provided including chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, games, etc. The king sized bed is comfortable with an ample supply of pillows. And the view from the lanai and out the living room window are both spectacular, especially at sunset! The location is great as you are walking distance to all the best beaches and can easily come and go from the condo to the beaches, as well as the fun restaurants and bars within walking distance. A car is convenient but not necessary. There are nearby grocery stores within walking distance, depending on how far you like to walk, or there is a bus that runs every hour to all of them. Highly recommend!
