About Court Roberts

I grew up on the west coast of Southern and Northern California, I LOVE the ocean and sailing. Ever since I visited Maui I have been going back to vacation as often as I can. As our family traveled, I found Hawaii to be the perfect place. I couldn't get enough of the ocean. I was just amazed as a kid the first time I went snorkeling - I thought, 'Cool, it's like swimming in giant fish tank!' There was no question, someday I would live and vacation in my own 'Hawaii beach house.' I hope you'll enjoy all that Hawaii has to offer. I sure do. I think You'll want to keep coming back too!

Aloha and Mahalo nui loa

Court Roberts purchased this condo in 2007

Why Court Roberts chose South Maui

The perfect location. The floorplan layout of Village By The Sea rooms are not long rectangles like most Kihei condos – much, much better in terms of feeling like you’re in a home and not a box. You’re oceanfront on a sand beach also. Close to shopping and dining and a great oceanfront and mountain view right from the condo. We take great pride in providing our guests with a high quality, clean, comfortable and well stocked accommodation. You will feel very much at home during your stay. I am happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to hearing from you. The Weather in the resort areas of Maui (Kihei, Wailea and Kaanapali) is warm all year round. Winter high around 81 low around 64 ocean water 75 Summer high about 88 low about 69 ocean water 79 The most rain is in December and January, while the least rain is in June through September. When it rains in the resort areas of Maui, it sometimes only lasts 15 minutes, though it can rain all day in the winter. However, the weather can be completely different on another section of the same island. Each island has a windward side that gets most of the rain. On the chance that you might get a rainy day, you could bring a small umbrella or light raincoat. Call 866-944-5025 for Maui weather. Try many of the dozens of beaches. Go to Beach in the south part of Kihei, where it rains much less and If it is raining even in Kihei and Wailea, go further south, past the Makena Beach, to Big Beach (Makena Beach Park), where it practically never rains. Lots to see and do so try something new every day while visiting Maui Hawaii.

What makes this condo unique

Views!! The views from this unit are some of the best. Whale watching anyone? Close to Shopping, restaurants and amazing snorkeling and diving. Amazing Sunsets and Maui Hawaii Ocean Views.


Maui is composed of two half-islands (east and west), joined by a wide valley. Maui is 48 miles long and 26 miles wide, or six miles at the narrowest point of the valley between the bays (728 square miles). The population is 155,000 residents, plus 42,000 tourists. The largest city is Kahului (population 20,000). Maui is the second-largest Hawaiian island. Over 2 million tourists come to Maui each year. The airport you will fly into is in Kahului (airport code letters OGG), in the northeast corner of the central valley.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I had a wonderful time on Maui! Court's place was a comfortable and quite place to stay and we enjoyed many GORGEOUS sunsets from the lanai. We loved staying In Kihei and it made a great home base for exploring the island. Excellent restaurants and beaches near by, without all the traffic. The beach on the condo property was nice for a morning dip and beach walks in the evening. Everything we needed for cooking and going to the beach was available in the condo. We had a wonderful wonderful time here.

Great location, welcoming

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in units 523 and 501. Both had great things to say about them. The only thing I would have changed was 501 vertical blinds need to be replaced with a solid drape. Sun was coming through them. Also 501 really could use an armhour in the bed room to hang your clothes. But not a large inconvenience.

Outstanding stay start to finish!

  • 5 of 5

The instructions prior to arrival were detailed and spot on. We parked and got settled in with no problem. The condo is exactly as pictured and truly felt like someone’s home not a typical vacation rental. The grounds are meticulously manicured and the pool and hot tub were always sparkling clean and never crowded like a resort!

We enjoy cooking so it was a big plus that the kitchen was well stocked with all the pots/pans, dishes, bowls, glasses, cups, and cooking utensils necessary. The king size bed was so comfortable and the sheets were silky smooth and the bath towels were plentiful and lush. All the gear you could need for the beach, chairs, umbrella, coolers, and body boards – all in very good condition! Take my word for it, the amenities were higher quality than most vacation rentals.

The bonus of the Smart TV and watching our own Netflix was the icing on the cake!

The location of the condo is ideal. A short drive (or bike ride) to the town of Kihei with lots of beaches, restaurants and bars. Wailea and Lahaina are shorts rides, and only about an hour to the Haleakala Crater.

We absolutely recommend this condo and are eager to come back!

Perfect accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Court's property is as wonderful as advertised. Perfect location to access all parts of Maui, and the town of Kihei has plenty to do as well. We especially enjoyed Nalu's which Court recommended to us prior to our trip. The condo is well-equipped including helpful beach gear (chairs, umbrella, cooler) which we used each day. Court reached out prior to our trip to make sure we knew where to go and how to check in, was a phone call away if we needed him during our stay. This trip was especially memorable as we got engaged during the week on the beach near the condo, an experience we'll never forget.

A terrific trip and stay, I would recommend Court's condo to anyone looking to enjoy Maui and all it has to offer. Will certainly stay here again!

We loved this condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautiful! The owner was very responsive and accomodating. Great location, lots of extras like pool chairs and beach towels. My only "complaint" is that the air conditioning didn't go below 72 degrees. It was an ok temperature, but a little stuffy and warmer than we would have liked. Overall, very impressed and would definitely recommend this condo!

Very clean and well kept

  • 5 of 5

The grounds were cleaned daily. The condo had everything to make our stay very comfortable. Having the beach chairs, beach towels, cooler and boogie boards available was the best. The location was perfect to explore the West and North side of the island. Of course South Maui has the best beaches and snorkeling. Easy drive to dinner at Mama's fish house up North and dinner at Grand Wailea down south. The condo was immaculate with beautiful decor and great AC. The rain shower head was great and all the mirrors really made use of the ocean view. Having Netflix was great in the evening to relax after a long day in the sea and sun. Mornings on the balcony was awesome with view of mountains and ocean. Having an assigned parking spot was great and nice elevator to the 5th floor. So many nice details. Just fabulous!
