About John and Darla Phillips

We have lived with our family in Kihei for over 35 years.

We love Maui, and are so blessed to call this our home.

Our ocean front condo is a dream for us, as we always wanted to be able to look right out our door to see the tranquil beauty of the ocean and the sunsets.

We hope our guests enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we do.

John and Darla Phillips purchased this condo in 2017

Why John and Darla Phillips chose Kihei

We love the location, being able to gaze out at the ocean, and the beautiful mountains of West Maui and Haleakala, while having privacy from other condos. We visited many other condos and did not like looking straight into other units and their lanai's. When we are out on the lanai there are no other condos looking into us, and it is quiet, and tranquil.

What makes this condo unique

Being on the top floor gives us great views, and privacy. There is no one above us to make noise, and the privacy in our unit and lanai makes it peaceful and serene. The interiors of the condo were recently upgraded with new tile, kitchen cabinets, appliances, bathroom, and furniture.

Our unit is clean and spacious; and find ourselves fully relaxed, gazing at the views, and thankful for any time we get to spend in our little piece of paradise.

Very nice condo with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this condo and the owners provided just about everything that could possibly be needed, even binoculars for whale watching. The kitchen was well supplied with appliances and other incidentals that were not expected. The furnishings were very nice and comfortable. Our experience communicating with the owners was very positive and they informed us about the construction status prior to our arrival. They also checked with us during our stay to make sure all was well. We were not bothered by noise or any construction inconvenience. Many thanks to the Phillipses

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying at our condo for your vacation! We are glad you enjoyed everything in the condo , the great views, and had all you needed to make it an enjoyable, comfortable stay. I'm also glad to hear the renovations were not a problem. We enjoy hearing the ocean waves and palm trees swaying from our lanai , and when we're lucky - see some whales frolicking in the sea. We hope you will come back again, and sincerely thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure having you here. Aloha for now, John & Darla

Nice place with great view but renovation noise a problem

  • 3 of 5

The owners are very thoughtful leaving binoculars beach chairs and snorkle gear. View is great and place was clean. Only downer was the noise of power chisels and grinders that they are using to remove old tile. Didnt use the pool because most of the noise was on that side. Would rent again but only if I new the reno was complete.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you liked our unit, and the view. We try hard to make every guests stay as enjoyable and pleasurable as possible. We are so sorry for the noise you experienced around the complex. Although the lanai's on our side of the building were completed in December, their schedule has been delayed due to weather and other incidents. We would love for you to come back another time, and we would certainly give you a discount for this inconvenience. Aloha, John & Darla

Had a Blast!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent 10 days in Hawaii, the condo had everything we needed. Great views from both living room and bedroom. It was clean and the deck facing the ocean was the perfects spot for meals. Cant beat the view. The condo had been going through some renovations, so there was some noise in the afternoons. All the contractors working there were very respectful and always had a smile on their faces. Great little beach you can walk to behind the property, although we didn't swim there we did spend most evenings taking in the sunset and enjoying a walk down the beach. I recommend hitting the beach early and then heading to the pool in the late afternoon. All in all it was a great experience and i would recommend this to any couple looking for a nice place to stay. The condo had beach chairs, towels, a boogie board that also came in handy. A lot of very nice beaches just down the road and multiple grocery stores, we recommend checking out the "times" grocery store for their Hawaiian Poke. The gentlemen working the deli let us try about 7 or 8 kinds before choosing what kind to buy. Worth trying for sure. Also if you're looking to check out a Luau make sure you get your passes at Costco as they are cheaper.

Again Great place to stay.

Owner's Response: It is great to hear you had such a good time at our condo, and exploring Maui, and the local delicacies. We also enjoy sitting on the deck watching the sunset, the ocean activates, as well as the great view from inside the condo. The beach right in front of our unit is very enjoyable to sit and relax, or have a nice quiet walk. Were so happy you enjoyed our condo and hope you will come back again! Aloha, John & Darla
