About Laurie Armstrong

We own a wedding business on Maui, and have been in business since 2004. I am a state licensed officiate for the state of Hawaii, and have performed over 600 weddings and vow renewals. My wife is a property manger of property we own on both Maui, and in California. We have a home less than ten minutes from our condo which we live in year round.

Laurie Armstrong purchased this condo in 2004

Why Laurie Armstrong chose South Maui

We lived in this condo from early 2004 to the middle of 2005, so it's more like a home, than a vacation rental

What makes this condo unique

Having an end unit gives our guests a great cross breeze, with windows on three sides. It also has new air conditioning in both the living room and bedroom, if need be. We are a minute walk to the ocean, and the pool, BBQ, and laundry facilities are 30 seconds away.

Perfect place to enjoy your Maui vacay

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Kehei. The condo is so comfortable you'll feel at home immediately. The kitchen is great for cooking your meals when you don't feel like going out...there are spices and condiments and cooking oils so that you don't have to buy those. If you do want to eat out, there are plenty of places within walking distance...try the breakfast potato skins at Moose McGillicuddy's (sp?)! The beach is just across the street...sunsets are beautiful there. Getting to the condo and arrangements to get in are very easy and Laurie is extremely nice to deal with. There are even beach towels, hats, coolers, beach chairs and boogie boards. The pool is close by (but who needs a pool when the ocean is so close?). Can't say enough good about this place! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home!

Felt well taken care of

  • 5 of 5

Fabulously laid out home. Our hosts offer a very clean home with a great location. Checkin was a breeze. Great grocery store Hawaiian Moon just around the corner. A heads up in that the unit is near South Kihei Road. It's great to be close to the ocean and it's a very busy street so the noise was quite apparent for us. Still a 5 star rating.

Our perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to stay in this condo for our honeymoon in Maui and it was absolutely perfect. The owners have equipped it with everything that you need for your stay and the little details with which they prepared everything for our stay was so great. The unit was all clean and well stocked with towels, beach stuff etc. It was our home away from home and the owners are awesome. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it!

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely perfect for us. The unit was very clean and well stocked with linens, towels and kitchen items. The owner's were awesome to deal with and had the pleasure of meeting Lori while we were there. Would highly recommend this unit to stay in. We were with a large group of friends and all of them commented on how nice the unit was. Everyone loved the convertible couch!! Thank you for letting us stay in your unit and we look forward to our next trip to Maui. Aloha!!

We enjoyed this condo for the price and location

  • 4 of 5

In October my husband and I rented this condo for seven days. It has an 80's feel but had a true feeling of comfort. Everything was very clean and walking distance to a few restaurants. Thai,Seafood,Sandwich Deli,and Mexican food. They have a beauty shop in walking distance, and a mini store grocery store. The beach is very close but its just a little walk across the street. You have access to a nice pool. The owners of the condo made us feel very welcome. They have left a lot of extras in the condo for example - a mini ice chest,beach umbrella, his and her sun hats, gold clubs, large beach towels, and many more items that make you feel at home. The area has so many beautiful flowers and trees that also made it very relaxing. We will go back.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay, thank you for your note and the review. We were able to up grade the condo since your stay, still a couple of things to do. We love it when people come and visit Maui and enjoy themselves. Maui has a lot to offer and we want the condo to be nice and affordable, so our guests are not spending all their money on accommodations instead of fun! We try to have everything you need in the condo to help you. Congratulations on your marriage! Mahalo, Bill and Laurie

In total it was Ok' but I doubt I would stay there again if nothing changes

  • 3 of 5

Very good location, close to the shops and beach but the unit is very old with some really dusty and dirty areas (like behind the TV or under the tablecloth). But our main disappointment was AC - the unit has two of them but both were very very old and dusty, we tried to clean it up a little bit and turn on but we couldn't smell the awful mold&dirt smell from it. So we ended up not using them at all. At the beginning it was not easy but at the end we used to the heat but we were lucky we stayed there in November! In summer I think it would be impossible. The bathroom has no windows/fan so it was very hard to breath there.

Owner's Response: Not surprised by this review, our condo was getting a little tired, but it was not dirty, moldy or smelly. We went to the condo 2 hours after these guests checked out (3 hours late) and found our condo filthy and smelly. Our guests stayed for 8 days, I do not believe they emptied the trash once. There were 3 bags of kitchen garbage in the kitchen area and soiled baby diapers stuffed in the bathroom trash, overflowing. We had a new dishwasher put in last month, it was stuffed with dirty dishes, I do not think they used the dishwasher once. I needed to wash them twice. The table was not dirty, the varnish was wearing off so I put a tablecloth on it until we could replace it, there are extras in the linen closet. Lastly, air conditioners do not get stinky or moldy, but they do get dusty. All we ask is when guests leave that they empty the trash, strip the bed, put all of the soiled linens in the laundry basket and start the dishwasher. None of that was done. On a positive note, we have had two other renters since these guests and as usual they loved the condo, no complaints. I took the condo off the calendar several weeks ago, so we could do a winter cleaning and get ready for our guests in 2016. Here is what we have done in the last 5 days. ............................................................... Painted the entire condo, ceilings and walls. New shades for the bedroom. New dining room table and chairs. 2 New air conditioners. Flat screen TV in the bedroom. New comforter set for the bed. Dry cleaned the drapes in the living room. ....................................... We do live 5 minutes away and I always tell our guests if they have any problems call and we will take care of it immediately. Our phone number is on the refrigerator. The condo looks great, we will post the new pictures on the website as soon as our daughter has the time! Mahalo, Bill and Laurie
